About Bob Winton
Pam and I are in our 48th year of marriage, with three adult sons, three terrific daughter in laws, and five lovable grandchildren.. We have lived in Durham since 1975 and Bob grew up in Raleigh.
Bob Winton purchased this House in 2002
Why Bob Winton chose Emerald Isle
Starting in 1977 we have been coming to Emerald Isle for at least one week a year. Over the years Pam and I and our boys have stayed in several duplexes on the island. When we found this one, we fell in love with it after less than 5 minutes of "inspection". We thought that renting primarily to families might get a more thoughtful clientele for whom we could securely provide more services. We believe such folks would within reason take care of the property while enjoying their stay, so that whoever followed them would also have the same type experience.
What makes this House unique
Aquarius East offers a private walkway to the large private dune deck, full main decks separation, and solid soundproofing that give this duplex a very realistic feel of staying in a single family space. Because of its location on the lot and that of the houses to the East (Aquarius and the beach face due South), there is a full beach view all the way to Atlantic Beach. The South facing beach also means in the winter, when there is the typical wind from behind, (north) the top deck is quite warm and one can often sit there on a 50 degree day in a t-shirt and shorts. Furthermore you can see the sun rise out of the ocean and set into the ocean, often with spectacular sunsets. Having two full decks, one open, one covered is an added bonus. We have been able to up the amenities substantially for less than comparable rental units. These are linens, towels, made beds, beach towels, spices, laundry and dishwasher detergent, high quality (Pantene) shampoo and conditioner and Oil of Olay shower soap dispensers in all 5 indoor showers, beach chairs and umbrellas, and kids plastic beach toys. And the finish one replace one spice drawer/

Fantastic Family Experience
We had a great time at this property. Everything was well appointed and location is perfect for a family outing. Highly recommend.
Amazing family vacation
This was the perfect house for a large blended family. There was plenty of room for 10 adults and 4 young children. The best part was the amazing views and direct access to the beach. Even though this was peak season this part of the beach was not too crowded. There was another large group renting the other half of the house. However, the way the house is set up we were hardly aware of them. The sound proofing between both sections of the house worked really well.
The kitchen is well stocked and the living and dining room was large enough to hold all of us without tripping over each other and we had several large decks outside with lots of deck chairs. We are already talking about renting half of this lovely beach house next year!
This house was more than large enough for my family of 7 adults. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean decks from the lovely decks. The kitchen has all that you would need and the dining room table has a built in lazy susan. The bedrooms were clean and the check out process couldn't have been easier. We have been to many beaches along the North Carolina Coast and this was our favorite.
Better than advertised.
I'd give this property more than 5 stars if I could. It was easily the best beach house that we've stayed in. It was well-maintained, clean, and in a fantastic location. The owner sent us all of the information we needed well ahead of our trip and made sure we knew who to contact since he wouldn't be reachable during our stay. This house has made our very short list of houses to check when we're booking a vacation again. I could keep writing, but it would just be variations of "this place was great." Sure, there were a few minor things at the property, the sorts of thing you find at any rental beach house. But they were so few and so minor that we quickly forgot about them and enjoyed our vacation. I can't recommend this place enough.
Great place for a family beach week
The 5 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, made this a perfect location for a blended family with 4 grown children. The layout of the living area is great for games, puzzles, cooking, and several different breakfast shifts each morning. The owner was easy to reach. The views and beach access are wonderful.
Beautiful and well-kept home right on the beach.
The owner was easy to reach. The view was stunning. The beach house has all the supplies we needed. It was well stocked. Many ocean views from different rooms in the home and balconies that provided some time to relax alone or in a group. We could all have privacy as well as time together. Fabulous!!!
Aquarius East is located on an only residential beachfront near the Pine Knoll Shores State Aquarium, Hammocks Beach State Park, fishing piers, go carts, mini golf, water slides and more.
