Ocean Reef is a beautiful, gated complex on Emerald Isle a few miles from the bridge. We were pleasantly surprised at the view, amenities and easy access to restaurants, etc. This unit had an awesome upper level deck where we spent most of our afternoons and early morning coffee. Even though it was second row, the view of the water was perfect. The owners fully stocked the unit with everything you could want and the place was spotless. The complex has a pool, basketball and tennis court and shuffle board. It was so quiet and relaxing and everyone was so friendly! We can't wait to go back! Emerald Isle Realty was also awesome to deal with. Overall a PERFECT weekend!!
