“Great place for a single or couple.”
Quiet, clean, and well equipped. Wonderful view of the sound and a very short walk to the beach. The outdoor shower was awesome.
“Great stay, but..”
It's a great little cottage. It was perfect for myself and dog. Being there during a hurricane, it would have been nice to have cable to be able to keep up with the latest information. HD antenna is just not reliable. Hopefully the owners will see that investment in cable is a safety thing.
“perfect sanctuary for nature lovers”
I have stayed in this house twice now. It is perfect for a couple's get away. You have the best of the sound and the beach (one block walk). Bring a canoe and a bike for the ultimate experience. The outdoor shower was enjoyed at least twice a day, even at night. Loved it!
I stayed in this rental property for a week. The place was infested with fdleas... Had a clogged sink the whole week. The television had 2 stations with no DVD player so basically had no TV. Stained blanket on the bed. Very unsanitary and gross with fleas. I would have contacted the realty company but I was there for my cousins wedding I was in and was busy with that and seeing what I could of the island. I did not feal like dealing with it nor should u have to when your on vacation. It is a cute little place and perfect size for a couple but would be way better had it not been for the fleas and sink and other things.
The home was in basically good shape, small, and a little dirty. The attendant said that the prior tenants left the refrigerator filled with sand and pennies. Nice view of water, but the sand was full of old clothing, glass, and pieces of brick. The kitchen was less than desirable with ants everywhere. After calling about ants, someone came by with a can of ant spray for us to spray. She said that the exterminator would come out the next day, but we never saw him! No cable, so take something to watch weather, etc. It was not an enjoyable trip. Don't get me wrong, there are wonderful properties with this company and I have used them before. This just wasn't one of them!
“Great location and great value”
We've stayed at aMT twice, and we will again when we return to Sobx. It's a great value, and its location on the sound is outstanding for kayakers. Because it's a one-bedroom place, AMT is a rare find anywhere on the Outer Banks, but ideal for couples. Amt isn't a plush beach house. The furniture isn't made for lounging and deck furniture is a couple of stackable resin chairs and a coffee table. There's no big-screen TV, and the small flat screen gets only a handful of channels. The kitchen is functional, but a long way from gourmet. But who really cares? Amt is centrally located on Emerald Isle, and the ocean is just across the street -- a 5-minute stroll. Wish Sobx had more places like it.
Response from the manager I agree, August Moon Teahouse does provide the perfect retreat to the beach. I'm glad to know you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next arrival. Please call us when we can reserve August Moon Teahouse for your next stay in Emerald Isle - 1-888-832-0140.
“A Romantic Retreat”
The august Moon Teahouse is a very romantic retreat for any couple who wants extreme privacy and a one of kind view of the sound. My husband and I loved our time there and hope to make a return trip within the year. When you are in the august Moon house looking out of the sound, you feel as though you are the only two people in the world.
Response from the manager August Moon Teahouse does provide seclusion and an excellent view of the Sound. The sandy access right out in your backyard is a great place to launch kayaks or just sit and enjoy the serenity. I'm happy to know that you and your husband enjoyed it and hope you will revisit soon. Please call us when you beign making plans for your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
“Not so much "private" as hard to find”
We rented the august Moon Tea House for our honeymoon. We rented it for the "privacy" advertised. However, not only does it rest between two huge homes that can see right in the windows, it is also surrounded by the neighbors' long docks that take over the visibility of the backyard. While we were there, there was construction on both sides, Monday through Saturday, that woke us up early every day. Instead of seeing the beautiful serene Bogue Sound first thing in the morning, we saw construction guys all over the place who had no reservation about staring and cat calling me from the "privacy" of our backyard. The workers in one yard tore apart a pier and left all the pieces on the beach of our backyard and took their time having it removed. We called the rental company to let them know we were frustrated. We were promised a phone call back, but it never came. We might have considered renting a different house with Emerald Isle Realty next year- except for that sad fact. The house itself was just okay. There was a hole in the ceiling of the bathroom, dead bugs everywhere and a general lack of attention to detail. For example, a new t.v. was purchased to replace the old one, but the old one was not removed. It sat like a behemoth behind the new one. We are not sticklers for "new things", but at some point, things like the 20 year old boombox just get amusing. It seemed like a really good deal, but we realized under the circumstances, we might have preferred a hotel, where management might have taken our concerns more seriously. When we checked out, no one asked about our stay and seemed in a hurry to get the keys back. However, they were fantastic when we checked in. They gave us ice cream.

“It was very nice birthday week for my boyfriend!”
The house is very nice and its in a beautiful location. We both enjoyed the room. Didn't really come here to look at television but even trying to look at the new was hard kept saying weak signal. And it could use a bigger bed as well. We already have planned in our trip next year. Thanks for everything

“Quaint, clean, convenient, cozy little house on the bay”
This cute house was conveniently located on the bay, within a quick walk to the ocean. Furniture is a bit beat down but spent most time out on the deck. Small charcoal grill was a bonus. Wish there were at least paper towels and dish soap provided, but other than that- no problems. Check in & check out were a breeze.
