“Not a comfortable place”
The house is okay, but there were many things that added to the discomfort: there were no rugs in the entrance of the house, nor in the bathrooms, nor in the kitchen. The kitchen floor was constantly damp with different people getting food ready. The shower had a curtain instead of a box, and since there was no rug, inevitably the floors were always wet. There was not enough silverware. The bedrooms were nice but the bathrooms and kitchen were pretty old looking. The ac didn't work well in the master bedroom and bathroom upstairs. It was constantly hot up there. To top it all of the house shook all the time! Initially we thought it might be when trucks drove by or something like that but that was not the reason. You could feel it from any part of the house, but if you laid down in one of the bedrooms upstairs, it felt like an earthquake. The first night my sister actually woke up thinking that there was an earthquake and called the police to double-check. I believe it shook because the pillars that hold the house don't have L-beams like the other houses around.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and for your suggestion to add rugs to this home. As for the shaking, homes on stilts, or pillars, can have a sway to them and I am sorry to hear that this was disturbing for you and your group. I hope you will vacation with us again. Perhaps, we can find a home that is situated on the ground to better accommodate you for your next stay.
“It was relaxing with no worries.”
Ei Reality made renting easy and effortless. The house was equipped with everything you needed, all the comforts of home which includes the linens, towels etc. It made packing and taking from home so much easier. The house was spacious and comfortable though I thought it was a little closer to the beach access. It still was what we needed for a week get away. We loved the front porch and the fact there was a gate so we could let the dog out to sit with us without having to be tied up. Being pet friendly was a big plus for us! The down stairs shower was great after being on the beach and needing to rinse off or the hose hook up for just feet or sandy paws after a sunset walk. The teenagers enjoyed the fact it wasn't to far from things to do in the evening, a short walk for them to putt-putt, racing cars etc.
“Terrific, but with a few blips.”
Online scheduling very easy, check-in, and check-out very easy. Good value for money. However, check-out list was obscure and not clear (especially regarding linens) and no one at linen service or housekeeping was available on check-out day and housekeeping never returned messages that were left. That needs to be improved.
“Great spot for family beach trip”

We took our parents, our dog and our children to Emerald Isle and stayed at Bobby's Beach barn. Our vacation was awesome, there was plenty of extra beds in the closets so we could put all the kids in the the upstairs king bedroom. There were plenty of storage for all of our things and we loved the beach cart and extra toys there for the kids. We didn't need anything but ourselves and food. The walk to the beach was great, the walk back was a little long, but we enjoyed every minute of our stay!

“Peaceful and relaxing”
We truely enjoyed the Beach Barn and the short walk to the beach. It was very peaceful and relaxing compared to many other beaches and rentals we have been to. It will be the place we choose to bring our family for years to come.

“Dog friendly and comfortable!!”
There is nothing the owners did not think of to make the stay enjoyable. I felt like some really good friends let my family use their beach house for a week. Furthermore, Emerald Isle Realty was wonderful to deal with--the express check-in and out was the bomb.
“Perfect family get-away”
The house was ideally situated for us--between beach and go-carting, mini-golf and restaurants. Great place to bring your dog--lots of clean streets and beach to walk miles on. We brought kayaks--had plenty of room to keep them under the house when we didn't want to transport them. Everyone had plenty of space to relax apart and together. Dishwasher wasn't replaced when we thought it would be, but not a big problem. Had a leak from upstairs bath but maintenance fixed it a day or so. Service was great. I would definitely recommend this to everyone seeking a family retreat. I think it was our best family vacation to date!
We went to Emerald Isle in June and came back the first week of July. Our stay at Bobby's Beach Barn was unbelievable. The house was pristine, everything worked without a hitch, the linens were clean, and there were so many beach accessories in the storage downstairs so you dont have to bring a lot with you. The only downside for us was the amount of bugs while sitting on the deck upstairs ,and the wooden deck furniture made us itchy. Also, it was a bit of a hike to the beack (about 18 houses away) Otherwise, everything else was perfect. Wouldn't hesitate to go back!
“Delightful and restful”
Very comfortable. Well appointed interiors with updated gadgets and appliances. Excellent location in relation to town. 10 min. walk to beach - hand pulled trolley was very useful and made it easy. Great neighborhood and pet friendly too. Further attention to landscaping around the house would would add more appeal.
