Sea Notes

6 Bedrooms 7 Bathrooms Sleeps 12 Almost Oceanfront 1512 Ocean Drive, Emerald Isle

Near the Sea we forget to count the days... It will be easy to lose track of time when you stay in Sea Notes, a warm, fun, & effervescent Almost Oceanfront home. Sea Notes is a 6-bedroom home, with 6-full and 2-half-baths, and you won¡t have to worry about trekking anything up and down the stairs because it has an Elevator that is available from the Ground Level all the way to the top. The minute, whimsical details and treatments this home extends are not to be missed, even down to the oval, nickle door knobs. And getting to the beach is easy! Beach access is directly across the street (see photo) but if you don¡t want to spend all of your time at the beach, there is a gorgeous Pool and Hot Tub at your disposal. The first thing you will notice upon entering Sea Notes, and you¡ll find abundant throughout this home, is the fanciful artwork, object d¡art, and custom-painted furnishings. It is obvious that great care was taken to insure that each room resonates a theme. When you enter Sea Notes, at Ground Level, the first rooms you see are the bright and fun Media and Game Rooms. The Media Room is decorated in lively primary colors and furnished with a Cherry, suede-like sectional and over-sized, Denim blue chair. The walls are full of sea life, from the entertaining musical frogs to the brilliantly colored fish making their way through sea reeds. Next door is the Game Room - in the middle of the Game Room sits a Fire Engine Red Pool Table, and is cornered by a deep blue-tiled Kitchenette, with a Microwave and Refrigerator. Next to the Pool Table is a charming, hand-crafted bench that was created by a local wood worker. It has an Ocean Wave-styled back and large blue fish armrests, perfect for a home at the beach! Navigate over to the spirited sailboats and stripes-themed bedroom, located next to the Media Room, with a Double Twin Bunk Set and a Twin Bunk Set...it is a perfect place for the kids. The adjoining bathroom is complimentary with it¡s brightly painted walls and marine-themed decorations and the kayak paddle towel bar is a perfect touch! Even the stairways are delightful! Both of the stairways are brightly painted, and are full of marine-themed knick-knacks and furnishings, and the first stairway is even painted with a lovely marine life mural! You¡ll love to wake up in the "Tequila Sunrise" Bedroom! The "Tequila Sunrise" Bedroom is located on Level One and is situated with a King bed, with a large bamboo headboard shaped into a gorgeous sunrise and "Tequila Sunrise" lyrics painted on both sides! The sunny Melon walls in this bedroom are a sublime backdrop to the deco-style, hand-painted furniture and cheery, colorful bed coverings. The connecting bathroom has a Jacuzzi bathtub, private toilet and an etched glass stand-up shower, with a complimentary rising sun backdrop over the lavatories. On the way to the 2nd bedroom, on Level One, there is so much to take-in as you walk through the delightful "marine life" hallway and over the over-sized and brightly colored fish-shaped area rug! In the 2nd bedroom, the "Summer Time" room, there is a King bed, and an abundance of eclectic art adorning the walls. The furnishings have a tropical, Indonesian-inspired feel and are a great match for the bamboo and additional treatments found throughout the room. The full-bath, in this room, is unusually bright and "beachy," with fish spouting air bubbles from the Melon walls. The "Bali Hai" bedroom, also on Level One, is named for the famous and fabulous musical "Bali Hai." The sheet music to "Bali Hai" is framed and hung against deep Salmon walls. Also making this bedroom special are the other tropically-inspired treatments, such as, the Raffia Hula bedskirt on the King bed, which is also drapped with romantic mosquito netting over the top of the bamboo headboard, the Raffia Hula skirt shower curtain in the bathroom, and Indonesian-inspired object d¡art. The kids will be crazy about the "Surfin¡ Safari" bedroom! "Surfin¡ Safari" is also on Level One allowing the kids easy access to the adults on the trip. The Twin and Double/Twin Bunk Sets are bedecked with lively striped bedcoverings which are made even brighter against the Tangerine walls. The Surfboard mirror and Surfboard handles, a unique addition to the chest of drawers, match perfectly with the beachy scenes found in the adjoining full-bath. This room is so kidcentric there are even colorful footstools at the lavatories! The bedroom on Level Two is absolutely bright & lovely! On the stunning hardwood floor sits a King bed which is adorned with delightful designer bedcoverings in Persimmon, Melon & Butterscotch, against Antique White head and foot boards. The adjoining full-bath has a Jacuzzi Tub, private water closet, and separate glass shower. The real highlight of this room, and a tribute to the Island, are the lovely murals decorating the walls...one of a lovely mermaid swimming with a small school of fish and the other, doves carrying a flowing banner over the bed that reads, "I have never felt so free as when I¡m listening to the Song of the Sea." This is a special vacation home and the Homeowner has made sure it stays that way. Stay at Sea Notes and find out for yourself what makes this place so fantastic!

Adequate for our needs and home was clean. However, no pantry, beach access was difficult due to cable across sand walkway and no in pool lights as listed,

This home was perfect again this year. The rooms are more than adequate and each of the bedrooms has an attached bath. We were 12 in this home and it could not have been more perfect.Thank you.

Sea Notes is a beautiful well kept house with all the amenities you could ever want. The house was spotless, the pool and jacuzzi were fabulous and there was also a mid-week cleaning of both. We have been there many times and look forward to returning any time were are in Emerald Isle.

Sea Notes was perfect for our family of 12! Each bedroom having a separate bath accessible was a huge help in terms of access and privacy. The kitchen was huge and accommodated 6-8 people working in there. The porches and covered porches were ideal. It was perfect for our arrangements.

Sea Notes was the perfect house for our group! We booked less than three weeks in advance of traveling and couldn't have asked for a better house for our 'quaranteam' of 15 (6 adults; 9 children, ages 19 months to 10 years). Loved the thoughtfulness of the decor throughout the house (felt like a home, not a beach rental), and the two bedrooms with bunk beds to sleep up to 10 children were outstanding! The full bathrooms for each bedroom were also much-appreciated and gave each family their own space/privacy. Lots of deck space (which I LOVED did not have stair access between each other and/or to the road with a toddler in tow!) and plenty of seating for all on the decks and around the pool. We were really hoping for an oceanfront property, but this second row home had such great proximity to beach access that it almost felt like we were oceanfront. Pool was great, and the hot tub was an added bonus! Only 'criticism' would be the lack of pantry space (was locked as an owner's closet), but we managed all right and had a truly wonderful visit. Hope to make a trip back some day!

The home had everything you needed in a vacation rental. The furnishings to the well stocked kitchen was terrific. The pool and hot tub were lovely. One of the best features was the close access to the beach so people could come and go very easily. The elevator also was very helpful as one of our party had recent hip replacement. It was a great beach home for a family vacation.

Oh my gosh where do I start... Sea notes was absolutely perfect! The house is beautifully decorated and so comfortable for a large family. We had 4 families and plenty of room for everyone. 4 of the bedrooms were master bedrooms with king size beds and full bathrooms so no waiting to take showers! Also the boys had a bedroom with bunks and bathrooms and same for the girls. The kids loved the pool table and the pool was refreshing after being at the beach. We had a view and a very short walk to the beach! Loved it! The kitchen had full size fridge and a mini fridge which held our adult beverages 🙂 oh and I cannot forget the ice maker! The elevator made it easy for my mother in law who cannot walk the steps and it made it easy for her to go to the pool and hang out. There is so much about this place to mention I will run out of room. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! we will defiantly be back!I cannot forget to mention Blue Water! Sooooo easy with checking in and out! you just drive thru! and everyone is so nice and helpful

This home is a beautiful 'home away form home' that my large family has been able to enjoy for the last two years. There was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy privacy with plenty of family time together We had a wonderful vacation and look forward to possibly coming back next year. Thank you for opening up your home to us.Gerry Dahrouge

This house is great. It could use a hand rail to get in and out of the pool. Also pool furniture is very rusty or broken. Had a wonderful 2 weeks there and will return there again next year!

Excellent Property. Home was impeccable both in terms of appearance and layout. My husband and I felt very ' at home' and could tell the house was build with family in mind. We were extremely impressed that the owner called us to ensure the home was meeting our needs as well as to make sure we were having a good time. The owner was also kind enough to leave us a memento of our trip that will ensure we remember our visit to 'Sea Notes' for many years. We will definitely be back to stay at this home next year.

Loved, loved, loved the house. It had everything a vacationer would want. Have rented from bluewater before and had a great experience. Can't say the same about this trip. Had several issues that took several days to fix.

The fact that the home was so spacious . The bedrooms were amazing. I loved the fact that everyone had their own bath and the privacy of their own decks.It is a very beautiful home one that I would love to rent again.
