“Surf Husker... Home Away From Home”
We have a large family that reunites one week a year in Emerald Isle, NC, and it is truly like a week in paradise. For 33 years we have traveled to Emerald Isle from Virginia and Georgia and have spent the last 12 years at the Surf Husker... our home away from home. The Surf Husker is a beautiful waterfront six bedroom cottage that is always clean and well maintained, The homeowners are so personable, accommodating, and friendly while making our stay feel like home away from home. This cottage has a beautiful wrap around porch which we literally live on during our time on the island. We have quality family time while enjoying the ocean, nature, meteor showers, and beaches with a multitude of dragonflies and butterflies consuming the sand dunes. We play games, laugh, cry, eat, read and reminisce over past years while making new memories. Five generations later we look forward to our annual trip to the Surf Husker... our home away from home. It is my family's most favorite week of the year....!!
“spectacular view......beware of garage doors”
The extended family found Surf Husker perfect for our needs. The wrap around porch and spectacular view of ocean, plus closeness to ocean was wonderful. Although small, the kitchen was wonderfully appointed. The addition of a second refrigerator in the garage/basement really came in handy. The bathrooms need updating. The double garage doors were a nightmare. There was instructions on how to open and close the double garage doors. Even with following these instructions, I badly smashed my middle and ring finger between the panels of the garage. Luckily, someone was nearby and hear the cries for help. Ten days after the incident, my finger nails are still purple and the tips of both are sore. I was extremely lucky not to loose the nails . The garage doors need to be fixed or removed. As they are now they are very dangerous, and would not recommend parking in garage until fixed. Given the expense of the rental included linens (very clean), I feel the beds should have been made and not left for the renters to make. Other than the garage, we had a wonderful time. The location was wonderful and the extended family had a wonderful time.
We had a great time uninterrupted with great weather. Looking forward to next year.Every thing was as advertised. As we are getting to have a hard time with the steps getting our keys early is a great help Thanks to your cleaning crew.
“Loved Surf Husker”
Great location, good quality furnishings, absolutely fabulous deck. The only drawback was a tiny kitchen, so we didn't cook much -- not, I have to admit, that I really wanted to cook while on vacation!
We loved staying at the Surf Husker! It's right on the beach with a big deck and a big great room! The house is desgined perfectly for a few families to stay with seperate living quarters. The furniture, kitchen, and bathrooms were a little outdated but the space was awesome! We really enjoyed our stay and would defintiely stay there again!
“our summer home from home”
We have rented with Emerald Isle Realty for about 12 years now and Surf Husker has become our annual favorite. Adult children, wives, friends and the family dog get together each year. Surf Husker gives us plenty of space and we especially enjoy the huge deck for surf-watching.
“Great Once again”
I don't know how many years we have stayed at Surf Husker, but we still love it. The enormous deck that is partially shaded and partially uncovered is perfect for everyone. The kitchen is small, but well appointed for our cooking family. We loved the addition of the cabinet under the microwave this year. It certainly made it easy to store everything. What a great place to spend the 4th! We can't wait until next year!
My husband and me stayed here for 2 weeks in March. We found it to be very comfortable. I like the cozy feel of the plants,placemats,books, mags, etc...just like home. I was surprised there was no cupboard space for food tho...oh, and the deck is so nieand big--it was like having another room. I loved it.

“Great covered deck and outdoor space---perfect floor plan for fa”
The Surf Husker is a great house for a 3 generation family vacation, The covered decks, garage, and extra refrigerator were so convenient to store beach items, toys, and extra drinks. Everyone enjoyed the Tv's in all the bedrooms. The beach was wonderfuk and very clean. The only thing that spoiled this week was that the house was not clean -- it needed a thorough over all cleaning, The carpet in the living room was very unsanitary it was so dirty, and the floors and kitchen table had loose sand all over.
