“What you see is what you get.”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

Pictures are exactly what is there. You are right on the beach. House was nice and cool with the AC. Fantastic view. Like having a private beach out your back door. Turtle nest two doors down. Had fun watching the crabs during day and at night. Saw Dolphins in distance. Waves were perfect. Outdoor shower is enclosed with lattice. House is In a residential area, a few minutes drive to gas, groceries, shopping, mini golf, go carts, etc. Being on the beach was wonderful. You get to enjoy the waves and views at any time. We can't wait to come back.

“California Dreamin”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2014

Great layout with two identical bedrooms and baths at the two ends of the house with their sliders onto the deck and the living/dining/kitchen in the middle. But take or rent an umbrella or two for the deck -- when you have sun it is all day on the deck and it can be very hot if the wind is from the north (offshore). No nearby supermarkets -- a 15 min drive in either direction. But this is because this location is the best on the island for people who want a peaceful time. No grab bars and toilet seats very low. Small grab bar in shower. Older folks beware.

“Exactly what we hoped for!”

The house looks exactly like the pictures...something that does not always happen when you book something on-line. Bedrooms are a good size, and each has a bath. This house is literally right on the beach. The house was clean and cozy; the deck is a dream, and we hope to be back soon!Check in was a very pleasant experience. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Provided lots of information about things to do while there.

“Couldnt ask for more”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2012

From the minute we checked in until the day we left our vacation was perfect. The check in was amazing. It was so easy..and no hidden charges upon arrival. California Dreamin was very clean upon our arrival. Decorated very nice. Kitchen was perfect. It had everything we could have needed..even an ice maker:) We ate out very little the week we were there. We rented a gas grill from island essentials as recommended by Emerald isle. They deliver3ed it and picked it up. The views of the ocean were amazing not to mention the almost private beach. Nothing like I have ever seen before. The little house was perfect for the four of us. Sunrise and Sunset were nice. We got the pleaseure of seeing dolphins from our deck two times while there. That itself made my vacation amazing. I hated to see the week come to an end. I am sure I will book again from Emerald Isle and California Dreamin. Couldn't have ask for a mor3e realaxing, laid back vacation. Everyone we met were so friendly. Thanks again Emerald Isle for our perfect vacation.

“Very relaxing”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2012

This is the 2nd year in a row that we rented this property. We love it. It is such a relaxing vacation. Although we didn't like how the ice maker was broken. We love the cottage and its location. The real estate agency is very nice to deal with.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at California Dreamin'. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time at this cottage, though I am sorry to hear about the ice maker. We'll certainly be working to get that fixed before your next stay.

“sad to leave”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2012

We have stayed in this house 3 times. It is great for 3 people. It would be nice to have more living room seating, as there is only a couch and the table chairs, but with the limited space it would clutter the area. So for family TV time we hung out in a bedroom.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at California Dreamin'. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoy revisiting this home and Emerald Isle. California Dreamin' is the perfect vacation spot for a small group who is seeking the privacy which isn't offered by a condo. I hope you'll visit again soon. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.

We loved the house right at the ocean. It had everything we need and wanted. The only thing is,at there is not much on Emerald Isle you can do if its rainy. We went to Mac Daddys and the aquarium and it was nice but we have rain on 4 days and would have loved to see more options like an indoor play area or so. Other the that - we had an awesome time !

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at California Dreamin'. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed your stay here and found all you needed within the home. I'm sorry to hear that the weather didn't cooperate with your vacation. There are several things to do on rainy days. As you mentioned, the aquarium and Mac Daddy's are popular destinations for a rainy day. I would also suggest visiting the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center, History Place, and the North Carolina Maritime Museum. Please call us when you're looking for things to do or for dining recommendations as we're happy to offer suggestions - 1-888-832-0140.

“The vacation was peaceful and the beach wonderful.”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2011

The cottage is perfectly located with the best beach views. The cottage is lovely with great beds and bathrooms. The cottage needs new pots & pans and glassware, less silk flower arrangements and decorative pillows. They just take up too much space and just end up stacked in the corner for the week. Enclosing the outdoor shower would really add to the enjoyment of the beach experience. The deck is great, but needs some permanent shade in the heat of the day and during storms when it would be great to sit out there and be protected. A roof over part of the deck would do the trick.

“This is a beautiful, peaceful place right on the beach!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

My husband and I stayed here with our two young sons and we were very happy. The location is great; right on the beach! My son's loved the deck, although it needs a little maintainence. We loved that there are two full bathrooms. This was a great place that we will definately rent again.
