Description of the Emerald Isle vacation home rental
You can stay at a vacation rental featured on HGTV's Beachfront Bargain Hunt introduction! Original episode aired 3/8/2015, Crystal Coast of North Carolina.

Early Bird Special:

Open April weeks 20% off!

New for 2017...Lower level master bedroom and bathroom is getting a make-over and will now be called Margaritaville. Tropical Room's bathroom is getting an update. New 65" flat screen tv, New XBox One (games too) and new chair in the Theater. Room darkening curtains on all oceanfront master bedrooms. Refinishing all hardwoods flooring. New mattresses in all sleeper sofas. Adding a juicer to the kitchen. Several new board games. More updates planned, will update as they are completed.


Appropriately named 'Playtime', this oceanfront/beachfront vacation rental built in 2005 has it all! If you aren’t simply enjoying the magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean there’s plenty to keep you busy in this 4800+ square foot house that showcases 5 OCEANFRONT master bedrooms, 2 'kids' room and 3 Sleeper sofas!!

On the first level, there is one oceanfront master bedroom (King bed, TV & DVD player) with attached bathroom, a laundry room with oversized washer and dryer, a game room complete with a GAME TABLE, POOL TABLE, FOOSBALL table, a Pirates of the Caribbean PINBALL machine, KARAOKE machine with CD&G library, separate sound system with IPod/MP3 player, a wet bar with full size refrigerator and a THEATER. The theater has tiered seating for 6, a sofa with QSS, 1 chair and boasts a 60' television with 5/1 surround sound speakers as well as expanded cable and a DVD player with over 300 DVDs available for your viewing pleasure (in any room with a tv!). There is also a den with a QSS, tv with DVD player, XBox 360 system with multiple controllers, and wireless high speed internet.

If you are wanting a little more action, turn on the Xbox 360 system (Yes, there are two gaming systems!) and put your game playing skills to the test on the big screen tv. From the 1st level you walkout onto a deck that’s home to a 14’ x 25’ lighted swimming pool (can be heated for $550 additional), hot tub and a private walkway to a gazebo and the beach. Relax with the sound of the ocean, or turn up the music on the outdoor speakers.

Move on to the second level and you will find 3 additional oceanfront master bedrooms (King beds), all with TVs (cable & DVD) and access to decks. Two of the oceanfront masters on this level have attached private bathrooms. There are 2 additional bedrooms with private bathrooms, tv W/cable & DVD. 1 bedroom has 1 bunk (twin up, double down) with a trundle, the other has 1 bunk (twin up, double down) and an additional twin bed.

Continue up to the third level and you will be able to admire the beauty of a reverse floor-plan and the breathtaking views it provides! This oceanfront beauty faces the ocean with a southern exposure. Not only do you get both sunrise & sunset over the ocean, you won't be looking directly into the sun as you enjoy the views. There is a huge kitchen, dining room and living room complete with sound system w/CD, cable TV & DVD, gas fireplace and a QSS. This level is also where the 5th oceanfront master bedroom (King w/cable TV & DVD), complete with Jacuzzi tub, is located. You will not only enjoy the oceanfront views but also sound views from this level, something only a few vacation rentals can offer.

All floors are connected by extensive decking, interior and exterior stairs as well as an ELEVATOR from parking to the third level to allow quick access to anywhere. House is equipped with a water treatment system. All 7 bedrooms + den have access to shared or private decks. Tv's with cable & DVD player in EVERY ROOM!! (excluding bathrooms) Free long-distance phone, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand & water toys and collections of movies, Xbox games, board games, puzzles, books, magazines and indoor toys are a few of the little extras you will find at this vacation rental.

Truly one of the (not so) hidden jewels at Emerald Isle!

Playtime Beach Cottage at Emerald Isle, NC

June 21, 2016

We marked our calendars a year ago and all of us counted the days until we returned to Playtime. We represent 5 families with 9 children ages 4-11 years of age.....5 girls and 4 boys and Playtime has something special for each of us......The house is roomy and provides spaces for rest, relaxation and all the fun we could ever imagine.....plus it has a pool, hot tub, movie theatre and a huge kitchen with plenty of room to prepare meal for our large families....the children love the pinball machine and tried to set a new record for the week.....there were movies with appeal to all ages.....we loved being ocean front and seeing the beautiful beach/ocean everyday and all during the days.....the house is built to provide lots of light and full views of the beach. We could not ask for a better place to spend our time together.....I should also mention that there is an elevator to help load and unload the luggage, groceries and other essentials for our vacation. This was our 4th year at Playtime and our joy has increased each year.....Playtime is a very special place to each of us and our youngest grandchild asked very nicely could we please come back again......even though we've been home awhile now we continue to have wonderful conversations about our time together in the wonderful, beautiful "Purple House"...being there really is magical.....and now, I'm counting the days until we are once again all together at Playtime!
