Who We Are

A retirement community with the close-knit spirit of a small town, the culture and entertainment of a college town and the beauty of a 150-acre nature preserve – that describes Holiday Emerald Pond. Inside the community, you can start the day watching the sun rise over the lake and end it with a social event before bed.

Holiday Emerald Pond also situates you within five miles of just about any cuisine you might crave, as well as Westgate Shopping Center and Lakewood Shopping Center. A short drive takes you to explore the Nasher Museum of Art, the Carolina Theatre, Sarah P. Duke Gardens and Amphitheater, and the Museum of Life and Science on Duke University’s campus, as well as Duke University Hospital. While out, you can also stop by the Streets at Southpoint for shopping or the Bennett Place for local history.
