What Past Guests Are Saying
This little cottage is charming and comfortable.
The service from Emerald Isle was just great. We liked the Cottage and the location. We were very comfortable there and really enjoyed the large deck. House has a very good layout and is very well maintained.
The Dish TV system was not good. Picture would fade in and out, so if you enjoy television stay away from this property. There does need to be better lighting under the house, we had to buy flashlights. The washer needs some attention. Maintenance did come down and check it out, but there were still problems at the end of our stay.
On the bright side, it was very homey and comfortable and I would stay there again, I really would. The owners put a great deal of thought into the decorating. There were loads of books and games. The location was just outstanding with a great view of the ocean.
La Grange, NC
My family and I had a great week, thanks to you all. We are considering coming back next year.
Good week at the beach
Very nice cottage. Good for small families. Great for dogs and small children. Terrific deck with safety gate. Well-equipped kitchen but a little quirky - can't open oven door fully without opening refrigerator door. Not a big problem, though. Beach access right across the street. A good choice for 2nd row cottage. Good value. Would rent again.
No linens is a minus but not a big issue. Ei Realty can take care of it.

Relaxing and Peaceful Stay
The house was well appointed. We were very pleased overall. Thank you for the anniversary gift!
Tom and Gale
We had a very pleasant stay.
We enjoyed ourselves this year just as we did last year.
Steel Magnolia is a hit!
Great beach access, great location on the island, and a wonderful, large deck. Ocean views were great, new kitchen and baths were wonderful, and the Direct TV service with 42 in flat screen was a joy. Some recommendations for next year for the owners: (i) order all the basic service that comes with your Direct TV package please, we couldn't get the golf channel, and you can add it for free (of course, not having your passcode, we could not do it for you); (ii) check the a/c - though we were comfortable at night, and the old system might need an update - the days were not particular hot when we stayed, but even so, the a/c worked all day just to keep it comfortable; (iii) new shower head for the outdoor shower - water pressure throughout the house was great, but the glogged shower head outside was an inconvenience coming off the beach.
Overall a wonderful time had by all, we stayed for 2 weeks.
Wish we could turn back time!!!
What a great find Steel Magnolia was! For the last 15 years we have stayed one week in an Ocean Front home. This year we wanted to extend our stay for another week but we were not able to afford 2 weeks on the ocean, so we decided to seek an almost oceanfront home which costs less than an oceanfront home to rent. Steel Magnolia was such a great place to stay. The location is just a very short walk across the street and down the access walk and you are on the beach! We didn't miss being ocean front for one minute!! The house had all the amenities needed to make us feel like we were home. The view was perfect! We were able to see the ocean from the beautiful deck where we had our breakfast, lunch and dinner! I can't think of anything that I would change about this house. An added bonus was having our faithful canine companion along to join in all the fun and relaxation! He loved laying out on the elevated deck looking down at all the passer byers!
We are already dreaming about next year's vacation and can't wait~maybe we will have to stay for 3 weeks!!!!

Fun week at the beach
Steel Magnolia is a very cute home. Well decorated and very comfortable. The deck was beautiful and the location was directly accross from the beach access. We are a family of four. Our teenage son decided to bring a friend and that made the home a little crowded. We return to Emerald Isle every summer. If we come as a foursome - we will stay at Steel magnolia again. If we come with any additional friends - we will look for something a little larger.
Christmas at the beach
It was lovely. My brother's family and I really enjoyed the house, the deck and the location.
The satellite TV main hard drive being in the master bedroom was annoying when the hard drive kicked on.
The telephone did not work for Christmas Eve or Christmas day...when I had planned to call friends. The after hours service didn't respond. I called Embarq and they came out the day after Christmas and fixed the problem.
Other than these issues...it was fabulous!!! I'm so glad they allowed my dog. We all enjoyed our stay. Thanks very much.
Great Vacation Spot for Family and Dog!
It was great, we really enjoyed the huge deck that was gated, so that our dog could be out with us without being leashed!
The house was clean, well equipped and had a great location!
duplex first time
WE had a good time and gave feedback to the agent on things that did not work in the house. On the whole though would not rent a duplex again as we prefer to be secluded.
