Living Area   ◊    Kitchen with Dining Area   ◊   Half Bath   ◊   Laundry Room
Welcome to the Emerald Dream, your luxury beach vacation home away from home! Guests will be enamored with the beauty of this home from the first step inside.  A charmingly-decorated living area invites guests to relax and hang out, offering comfortable sofa and armchair seating along with big screen TV for entertainment.  The living area flows right into the large, fully-equipped kitchen and dining space, so no matter where you happen to be, everyone feels connected. 
Guests will find this kitchen a dream to use on their vacation with high-end, stainless steel appliances like professional series oversized fridge and freezer, oven/range, microwave, and dishwasher, not to mention a coffee maker, toaster, and waffle maker! Beyond these amazing inclusions, guests will also enjoy use of an Opal ice maker, plus high quality cookware and utensils to make cooking for a crowd easy and convenient.
The long dining table is a great gathering space for mealtimes featuring seating for 12 and leaves plenty of space to maneuver comfortably around the kitchen.
The first floor also provides a half bathroom just off the kitchen, as well as a walk-in laundry room with oversize washer and dryer, ironing board and iron and a handy, rechargeable Dyson vacuum.

Game Room    ◊   Balcony   ◊   Bunk Room (2)   ◊   King Room  ◊   Full Bathroom (2)
Natural light from the stairwell window brightens the way up to the second floor, the highlight of the home. The Game room offers a number of entertainment options including a pool table, wall-mounted game station with 3,500 arcade games for up to 2 players at a time, and a large flatscreen smart TV. It's the perfect place to hang out anytime you're not out and about or hitting the beach! 
If guests desire a more chill hangout space, they can simply step out onto the second floor balcony featuring outdoor seating for 4, with overhead lighting and fan. You'll be able to take a peek at the community pool and pond area from here as well!
The first bunk room offers 4 free-standing bunk beds, plus a pull out twin bed, 5 beds total, and includes a smart TV. A large closet with multiple shelves allows storage space for everyone. This bunk room also includes its own private bathroom with a full bathtub, featuring sliding glass doors and tiled walls. 
A barn door off of the game room leads into a second bunk room. Multi-colored rotating lighting sets the mood for this space that features 4 built-in bunk beds, including drawer storage underneath. Each bed is equipped with individual lighting and its OWN TV, or as parents should interpret: no fighting over who gets to pick what they want to watch! This bunk room includes access to a full bathroom that is also shared by the King room on this level.
The King bedroom includes high quality furniture, large smart TV, closet space with hangers and suitcase holder. It also has private access to the full bathroom that it shares with the second bunk room. 
*Please note, adults are welcome to sleep on the built-in bunks (6'2'' in length). The free-standing bunks may only sleep children and teens. 

King Room with Private Bathroom (3)   ◊   Balcony   ◊   Coffee Station
The third floor offers 3 King rooms, each with private bathrooms, a balcony, and a Keurig coffee station at the top of the stairs. 
Each of the King bedrooms are beautifully decorated with tasteful, coastal inspirations, high end furnishings, and large flatscreen smart TV. Each room also includes a closet with hangers and suitcase holder for out-of-the-way storage. Attached to each King room is a private full bathroom, offering gorgeously tiled walk-in showers. The Master King room offers a few distinguishing features such as private access to the balcony, and a slightly larger bathroom with His & Her sinks. A pivoting, full length mirror is another special touch to the Master. 
Third floor guests will also be sure to enjoy the use of their own coffee station. There's nothing like having a chance to gear up for the day's activities with a nice cup of coffee before even venturing downstairs. (We provide 4 complimentary pods, but be sure to stock up on your favorite flavors as well!)
The covered balcony on this floor features a round, high-top table with 4 chairs, overhead lighting and fan. Community pool and pond area are within view.

Pool   ◊   Spacious Dining Areas   ◊    Expansive Lounge Area   ◊    Charcoal grills (7)   ◊   Fish pond
In addition to the Emerald Dream beach house (three minute golf cart ride from beach), guests also have full access to the 90' long community pool and spacious lounge, dining, and grilling pavilion, located just steps away from the home. It's a perfect space for cookouts, with 7 Green Egg charcoal grills (charcoal provided), for cooling off in the pool, or simply letting the kids splash away while the adults hang out within range of little ones. Guests are also welcome to fish in the community pond behind the pool area (catch and release).
