What Past Guests Are Saying
Terrific view and great screened in porch.
Bathrooms had been wiped down, not throughly cleaned - big difference. By the time we left, bottom floor toilet bowl had a black ring in it. That doesn't form in one week. Plates and glasses were minimal. Had to run dishwasher almost after every meal. Could have used a second beverage pitcher. would have liked some deck chairs. There were none on second level and none to bring to that level. Pool was small and pool area was not inviting. Sort of a grubby, moldy feel to the whole area. Ant infestation was terrible. Two people are still finding ants in their cars. Beds were too firm. Good selection of books, puzzles and games. No lamp in King bedroom. We later found a lamp in a closet with no shade. Sofa and chair covers were dirty. Porch had missing screen and was dirty in screen areas. I realize that sometimes owners wait until the season is over to repair and refurbish the house but guests who rent at the end of the season have the same expectations and needs as those who rent at the beginning. When one pays
these amounts to rent a house, one expects a comfortable bed, sufficient kitchen ware and cleaniness. We enjoyed the great view and the screened in porch.
A Beautiful View!!!
The house was lovely and had lots of amenities. We especially loved the elevator since the living areas were on the top floor. The elevator made it easy to carry up groceries and my 8 month old great grandson who weighed almost 15 pounds! From the third floor, we could see both the sound and the ocean--beautiful. I really enjoyed the whirl pool tub.
The worst problem was that neither ice maker worked, and it took the repair people until Wednesday to fix them both. My family really enjoyed staying at the house.
Great ocean views fit for a family with a wide variety of intere
Born to Son provided a wonderful family get away for us. You'd never guess it was third row back. Views were phenomenal! The house had many fun things for children of all ages and provided great comfort for adults and kids alike. The pool and hot tub were well maintained.
Eir provided good services for us in the booking process, helping us find this hidden treasure. Everything was ready when we arrived. The linens and post trip cleaning provided were definite pluses.

Wonderful Time with Family
We loved this house and it was perfect for our diverse family from a 2 year old up to a 63 year old. Great views of the ocean and the sound. Nice decks. We were there in april so did not use the pool but the young people liked the hot tub. Easy short walk to the beach. Easy location. The elevator was a huge plus for the older guests and moving in supplies and luggage. We would have just a few suggestions for the owners. The pillows could be replaced as well as the queen beds. The king beds were fine. The rooms need 2 bedside tables. With only one per room it was hard to have a place for glasses, books etc. The pots and pans selection while diverse needed to be replaced. All the teflon was all very scratched and not safe. There were no supplies like a toliet brush or a good broom to keep things clean. There was not enough silverware for a large family. Please put a dimmer switch on the dining table chadelier as it can be very bright. Emerald Isle Realty were a joy to work with and responed to all our needs especially Susan, Elaine, Chris, Toby and a few others. This is really a wonderful house and we would love to stay here again.

It was a great house with a great view
It was a very nice house with a great view. The men loved the fishing although they didn't catch much but it was convenient. The kids had a great time in the pool, riding bikes etc.
Marcum family from NC & KY
This house is a pleasure to stay in.
The house is very well maintained, beautifully decorated, and convenient to the beach. There was an ample assortment of pots and pans in the kitchen, which was a plus! Overall, this is a large and spacious home. It's great for families with small chidren and teenagers. There is room for everyone!!

Great house for family with kids
House perfectly suited for family vacation with kids and grandkids. Small pool good for young children, and proximity to the beach was still excellent despite 3rd row location. Good bedroom set up with bunks for kids. Porches with lovely views.
Paradise For Families
This was the most amazing experience! The rental was large, spacious, bright, and warm. Though there were several items/services missing, the staff was quick to respond to our requests. We felt more than comfortable and enjoyed all of the extras. Should we vacation in NC again, we would likely choose the very same house!
We made some wonderfull memories.
Could use a larger washer and drier. Also a regular broom. Everything else was great.

exceeded all expectations
i have three grown children with spouses and significant others and 3 grandchildren with varied backgrounds. To please everyone.. is a feat! Everyone walked in and said wow.. this is perfect. Our other family who visited all said the same thing.. we became the gathering place... because of the space and room and games and location. I had a perfect week. Thank you so much
We loved this house, especially for its reverse floor plan. The top level was open and airy, with great views, and no blinds or curtains to hamper those views. The porches were great, too.
Great Family Vacation Home
We have spent our summer vacation at Emerald Isle for many years. It is always a mix of generations and interests so finding the right home is paramount. This home was definetely our favorite! It was very clean, well equipped and allowed everyone enough space to enjoy their vacation time however they preferred.
We have elderly parents that accompany us and the elevator was just terrific. It helped us with everything from moving in to the daily trips to the grocery store! Not to mention everyone had easy access out to the pool! I was initially concerned that the pool was under a deck but there was morning sun and it was perfect after a day at the beach.
We were suprised at how easy our access was to the beach. It was actually a shorter walk than some of the beach front homes we've stayed in.
It was a great home and we look forward to a return visit!
wondeful house! great view of ocean and sound
This house truly felt like home! I loved the panoramic view from the upstairs living room. The hot tub and pool were also very accommodating. It may be back a row or so but it feels like you are right on the beach. You really couldn't ask for a better vacation home! It is a lot of house for the money! It was big enough to hold all of our guest very comfortably.
