If you want an affordable beach house that's just as good as ocean front I highly recommend Self. When you walk out onto the deck you are steps away front the beach with its easy access. With the exception of being a little outdated the layout is convenient especially with two full baths that make beach clean up easy. I definitely plan to book Self again.
“Hope you like the smell of cigarettes”
Unfortunately, we are ex-smokers. Upon entry, that was the first thing we noticed, was the strong smoke smell. We assumed it was smoke-free, since it wasn't noted on the rental site. We bought our own Febreeze and kept spraying all week. You definitely "get what you pay for". Very minimal kitchen supplies but we were able to make do well enough. Still only one (and still broken) chair on the deck. The exterminator showed up our first morning there, so that wasn't a good portent for the week! Then one of the bathtubs developed a leak. Not enough hot water for two showers! This place is in real need of some TLC and upgrades. It wasn't "all" bad. Close to the beach, and at least the bed was very comfy. Certainly not the worst place we've ever stayed.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review! This property has recently been renovated. Please give us a call so we can share with you all the work that has been done.
“adequate if shoddy.”
The rental unit was clean and furnished adequately, but there were definitely no extras. No electric outlet in master bath. One broken chair on the deck. almost enough of everything but no frills. The unit itself teeters on the border of benign neglect...nobody cares that much...just collect the money. My over-all feeling is you get what you pay for. I didn't pay much and...didn't get much.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Self East. I am sorry to hear of your disappointments in your chosen vacation rental. It is true that the Self Triplex doesn't boast many frills, but is a fantastic venue for travelers who want low cost and great proximity to the Ocean. Certainly, one of our vacation planners will be happy to assist in planning your next stay so please call us when you begin making plans for another visit to Emerald Isle - 1-888-832-0140.
“Basic living at the beach”
We continue to come back to Self East for a winter week of quiet time at the ocean. It has all the basics, nothing fancy, but there is cable and a shared washer and dryer so you can go home with a suitcase full of clean clothes! The best part of the place is the front bedroom where through the nice big windows you can see and hear the ocean. There is also a decent porch and fun mural to take a picture of while you're there. In addition, the owner allows dogs and we have two smallish ones who can't get enough of the beach. You need to bring all your own linens, kitchen cleaning ( sponges, soap, etc.) and you often have to hit the Dollar General for things like bottle openers and such but all in all it is still the best deal in Emerald Isle.
“Good for the money”
We were looking for a place that was inexpensive yet was walking distance to beach. This rental was outdated compared to most but still was within our expectations. The bedrooms each had a closet and each sofa folded out into beds if needed. The caretaker stayed downstairs and was always courteous and helpful if needed. The rental shares the front porch with "self west" but we had awesome neighbors so it worked out great. The beach is perfect there and can be walked to within 1 minute. There is plenty of parking. Overall "self east" was inexpensive but met our wants perfectly.
“Will Come again!!”
This home has a great location!! Short walk to the Beach! Clean! We were able to check in an hour or two early.It was great! Our whole family had a great time including the dogs!!
“Everything we hoped for plus. Lovely accomodations and service.”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was clean and well appointed for our needs. It was nicely decorated and comfortable. Emerald Isle Realty gave us excellent attention and service.

“Great Location- nice and cozy!”
We stayed for a weekend at Self East with some friends, It was close Morehead City where there was a boat show and an art show that weekend- it was very nice to be right across the street from the beach. The amount of space was perfect for the two couples - each couple had our own bathroom. We had a great time and would love to go back.
Response from the manager Self East is the perfect place to enjoy a getaway to the beach and it sounds as though you came down at the perfect time. We'd love to have you as our guests again so please call one of our vacation planners for assistance in planning your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
Very close to the beach and so close to all of the activities from Swansboro to Beaufort. Beds are comfortable. We really appreciate that this beach house allows dogs to join their families on vacation. Decor is dated and nothing fancy--unless you like lots of mirrors. The kitchen and living room are quite small. Kitchen has most of the basics for cooking and serving food. Washer and dryer are a nice plus. Very friendly staff at check-in and check-out.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Self East and for your kind compliment of the staff of Emerald Isle Realty. This is a basic beach cottage, but as you mentioned, the location is great and it is pet friendly. The Self property provides all of the basics a family needs to enjoy a great week at the beach. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Over all a Great Time But...”
Over all we had a great stay but I was very disappointed in the Kitchen of this particular house. It was not stocked with anything. Only 1 knife, 1 large bowl, no baking pans, only 2 large serving spoons. It was difficult to cook with the limited supplies but otherwise the hose was good.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Self East. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed a great vacation in Emerald Isle. I am sorry to hear of the lack of kitchen supplies and I will ask our housekeeping department to inventory this kitchen and add items where needed. Please call us during your stay and we'll happily provide your with items which are needed - 1-888-832-0140.
