“Wonderful home with awesome views”
Have stayed here many times and each time is just as great as the first. Our stay is always restful. Location on the sound is our favorite plus the walk to the beach is 5 minutes. Covers all bases!!
Spacious, modern, all the comforts of home. Kitchen well-furnished. Convenient walk to both the ocean and the sound.
“Boat House Emerald Isle, NC”
Great house, linens provided, kitchen well stocked, nicely decorated, large bedrooms, pool, can fish and crab from dock. Very close to the beach.
“This Emerald Isle Rental is a Flawless Gem!”
This is not your usual beach rental. The owners of the “Boat House” have personally decorated this home with elegant accessories, live orchids, art work, Brazilian hard wood floors, granite counters & furniture that you normally only find in private homes. The 6 bedrooms with 5 ½ baths can easily sleep 16. Our three families loved that we each had our own floor. Also,three refrigerators, two dishwashers, two dryers & a commercial grade ice maker that was never depleted. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, gas burner stove, two ovens & every appliance & tool even the most ambitious chef could need. Serving bowls, platters, table linens, 36 plates, cups, glasses, wine glasses etc. The dining room table seats 14. An elevator makes unpacking much easier. Also, there is ample parking.We parked 6 cars & two boats.There is plenty available to entertain your family. Puzzles, games, a library of novels, three family rooms, indoor & outdoor speakers throughout, internet access, land line, excellent cell service & flat screen TVs in each family room & bedroom. Outside there is a pier which is great for fishing. We caught drum, 40 blue shell crab & dug 30 or more clams as well. The water is shallow, however, we were able to bring our boat up to the pier during high tide. A lovely lighted & optionally heated pool complete with waterfall, Jacuzzi & plenty of lounge chairs in & out of the sun is where we spent most of our days. You can easily walk across the street to enjoy the wide sandy beaches of the ocean as well. Returning we used the enclosed outside shower to rinse off the sand. It also stores pool toys & floats. The first floor porch features a stainless steel Wilmington Grill as well as bistro tables for dining or cocktails. Close by you can find seafood & grocery markets, restaurants & beach wear shops, the OC Spa, bumper boats, mini golf, a library & the NC Aquarium. The aquarium currently has an outside dinosaur exhibit that the kids loved as well as the shark tank and other marine exhibits.After a full day of sun and fun we all relaxed on the second floor screened in porch & enjoyed the nice breeze & the lovely sunset. A picnic table here is where the youger children usually ate. Linens are provided. However you will need to bring beach towels, soap, paper products and your food. A cleaning service comes mid-week and at your departure.The rental company, Emerald Isle Reality, gave us excellent service! We had two minor service calls and they arrived within 30 minutes. Check in and check out is very efficient. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our family definitely hopes to make this our annual vacation home.
“This may be the most elegant and well equipped house for large g”
This was our third visit to The Boat House. The house has been ready, immaculate, with upgrades and pleasant improvements each year. Wireless internet, new linens, art work are some things improved during these three years. The service: rental, payment, service while we are there, and check out have been smooth. The house is perfect for our group of women. The spaciousness, well equipped kitchen, and elevator are superb.. Plenty of room to gather--the dining table on the main floor is divine, perfect for us. Also ample space for being alone, or noisy, as we needed. Having two dishwashers and ovens is really helpful when feeding a large group. And of course, the views are spectacular. Beach access is a matter of a 5 minute walk. Restaurants are close at hand, as well as grocery stores. It is very hard to say what we like best, since every part of this house is perfect! We always come in March, so do not use the pool, but we do enjoy the hot tub! And with such a comfortable space, weather never is a downside. We like anything March offers! So, we will be back for our fourth gathering next year, and can hardly wait! The Boat House is our little bit of heaven.
“This house is family friendly.”
The porch overlooking he bay was a great gathering place for our family to congregate and visit. Easy quick access to the beach and a beautiful view of the bay.Furniture very comfortable, kitchen extremely well equipped , with open eating areas at the bar and dining table. Only criticism was third floor bedroom with two pull out sofas was poorly utilized because the pull out sofas were so uncomfotable for sleeping. These should be replaced with beds for best utilization of the room. Also, room in the basement with pull out sofa would be better utilized if pull out sofa was replaced with Bunk Beds.
had a wonderful thanksgiving there! would go back for sure! beautifully appointed!

“Outstanding, Superb, Excellent”
"The Boathouse" is an excellent cottage with every amenity we could ask for. There were 13 of us staying there, and there were no complaints (except that those of us who got up early walked too loudly!).We love to fish and crab and so spent a lot of time on the pier. We also spent a lot of time in the heated pool and hot tub which were truly wonderful. If there were any problems (one with the dishwasher and one with a dryer), Emerald Isle Realty was very prompt in getting them fixed. They are very wonderful to deal with! We had a wonderful, wonderful experience at the Boathouse and with Emerald Isle Realty. We will definitely go there again!!

“Comfort and Relaxation”
Our daughter was married 9/17 at the Pine Knoll Shores acquarium. We rented the Boathouse because we have always wanted to stay there and for the room and comfort for family & guests. The rehersal dinner was held at the Boathouse. The accomodations are fantastic! Lots of space and beautiful comfort. I spent a lot of time on the screen porch! I have been coming to EI since my marriage to Melick in 1977. We have always stayed at the family cottage on the sound just up from the Boathouse. I love the sound and the Boathouse provided a great space to visit EI at a different location. Week there was fabulous!

“The house and grounds are even better in person!”
Although not a true complaint, I would have like better pillows in the bedrooms. Otherwise, just a couple of observations: 1)We would have preferred that the pool was fully cleaned and operating correctly upon our Sunday afternoon arrival; 2)We understand that you cannot control construction at the private home next door, but you should have let us know that the noise and activity would start around 7 am; 3)Having the trash and recycling picked up at the side of the house twice a week was a very nice feature!;4) Please publicize more that you will take non-perishable leftovers to a local Food Bank as that is a very nice service, and 5)All the electronic equipment is nice, but some additional instructions on how to use all of the gadgets would have made our enjoyment of it more thorough. We hope to return very soon. Thanks for a very nice vacation.
