This was our 26th year in the same house. It is in an ideal location. It is always well furnished and well taken care of. The furniture and kitchen is well done. One year we looked at renting other properties other than the Celtic Breeze but found them to be so inferior to this place.
“Wonderful Week at Celtic Breeze”
Home was exactly as portrayed online. We vacationed with 6 adults and 4 teenage girls. The lower level was perfect as the teenager hangout with the upper level designated as the adult space. The driveway is extremely steep so only one car was parked near the garage with the other two cars in the parking area by the street. The beds were made when we arrived and there were plenty of bath towels and wash clothes for all 10 of us. Kitchens were fully equipped. The only flaw to the week was the ant infestation which occurred in the lower level kitchen and in the cars parked near the street. There is an exterminator schedule posted on the refrigerator and we arrived in the middle of the once per month treatments so the owner is addressing the fact that the area seems to be a giant sandy ant hill. :) Make sure you do not have any food in your car when parked outside and it should just be a minor annoyance as you kill the stray ants found while driving. Inside the house, the ants found a box of sweetened cereal on top of the microwave downstairs but a can of bug spray resolved the issue. We found that storing most items in the refrigerators prevented any further problems. The ocean view from the balcony is wonderful, the area is quiet, and there are access points to the beach just a few houses away in either direction. The nearby grocery store (Food Lion) had very reasonable prices so there is no need to bring a lot of food, but do not try to grocery shop Saturday or Sunday evening since many newly arrived visitors are stocking up at that time. Bring some food for your first evening/morning and then hit the grocery store your first morning...we went Monday morning at 9am and got in and out quickly with most of what we needed for the week.
“Restful and Peaceful Getaway”
Who goes to the beach in the middle of December? We did and totally decompressed from a year of hetic activities and work. Celtic Breeze Cottage was amazing - just what we needed for enjoying a change in climate (fireplace) as we are from Floruda and any home amenity one might need. We stayed two weeks and made it our home. The cleaning service came mid-way through however, not necessary - we washed our own sheets and towels after the first week. Location however, not on the beach, was right across and perfect for us - easy access to the beach should we want to walk our daily four miles or, more often than not, our walk was on Ocean Front where, because of the season, more or less carless.

“A Sigh of Relief”
Celtic Breeze always welcomes us "home" after a year in landlocked Tennessee. Its location along Bogue Banks is convenient to Fort Macon on the East end of the island and Bonner Bridge over the intercoastal waterway to the West end. Both directions lead toward good food. The beach is just across the dunes by way of a boardwalk just a half block away. The house is well appointed with comfortable beds, lovely furnishings, a kitchen fully equipped with enviable pots and pans and dishes and flatware. A small kitchenette in the downstairs common room has a second refrigerator and gives another location for snacking or, for those who have to work remotely even when at the beach, a nice counter space for computers to take advantage of the WiFi. Tvs are in most of the rooms, Three bathrooms and an out door shower keep the lines from forming after time on the beach. We've been coming to Celtic Breeze for perhaps 18 years, and we always give a sigh of relief when we arrive, knowing we're in for a great relaxing time at our home away from home.

“Very nice rental”
This cottage was very a very nice place. Convenient location. Short walk to the beach. Nice views of the ocean. We have always gone to the Outer Banks for our beach vacations and came to Emerald Isle this year instead. I think we will continue to come to Emerald Isle...my husband just fell in love with it!

“A Wonderful location”
This is an excellent place. Even thought it's 2nd row it is well equipped and a few steps from the beach. It's the reason we have stayed in this house for 20+ years.
“Vacation great, cottage dissapointing.”
Cottage needs maintenance. The master bath did not drain, water leak in great room, overall condition needs to be addressed.
Response from the manager As of March 2011: The homeowner has replaced the upstairs A/C unit! ---------------------- Your Response - Aug 4, 2010 Thank you for your review. Our maintenance department is working on the air vent which was dripping water. I'm going to also report the other issues which you experienced. The drain in the master bath certainly could have been taken care of during your stay. Please let us know when you experience an issue such as this so we can fix it for you. I'm happy you had a great vacation on beautiful Emerald Isle and hope you'll choose Emerald Isle Realty again, when planning your next vacation.
“Celtic Breeze Cottage”
A very nice property. Beach access is good. The house itself is excellently laid out and well presented. Cookware, etc., is exceptionally well supplied. Both EI Realty and Island Essentials are incredibly responsive to any questions. DVR capability was particularly welcome as we were there during the Tour de France. A great stay!
