“Loved our stay in Emerald Isle”
This was our first trip to Emerald Isle--it was beautiful. We stayed at Brown & Barefoot and loved the house. My husband unexpectedly got ill and required a hospital stay at Carteret Health Center and so we didn't get to enjoy the house as much as we had hoped, but would definitely recommend it to others. The house had a nice layout and was located right across from the public beach access.
Best Vacation Ever! Hands down! We have done a lot of travelling over the years but nothing compared! The weather was amazing! Our house was sooo awesome! Truly of all of the homes rented by us and our family ours was the nicest!! Zero complaints!! The island and the privacy we had was worth it!! I have recommended Emerald Isle as a whole to everyone! Were are hoping to go again in two years and hopefully we can stay with Brown and Barefoot again!!! Thank you to its owners for providing such a spectacular vacation home for our family for the week!
“Perfect vacation! Great rental house!”
We stayed at B&B; in august 2012. We were 4 adults and 5 children (2, 4, 6, 6, 8 years old). The location was great. By car about 5-10 minutes to the grocery store and 15 to the aquarium, and a very short walk to the beach. The view: Luckily, the old house that was in front of the house has been removed and the lot is for sale ($1M). This allowed us to have a full view of the ocean (instead of a partial view). This really made our day! Inside: The bedrooms were as described. The master bedroom was bigger than what it looked like on the picture (plus it had a large walk-in closet). Extra sheets and pillows were available. Every bathroom had large cabinets which were great to store linens, etc. Note: The living room has been updated in terms of furniture = it now has 2 x 3-seats sofas, 2 x 2-seats sofa & 1 x 1-seat sofa. Outside: The pool was really clean when we arrived and someone came mid-week to clean it again. The size of the pool was perfect for kids + there was a kind of bench in it which was great. The locker room had about 6-7 bicycles (2-3 kids size & 3-4 adult size), a few beach and pool toys). The BBQ grill worked perfectly. Rental agency: The service provided by the Emerald Isle realty staff was great (we locked ourselves out and they were very helpful). The office offers free ice cream which is great for the kids and, of course, coffee and snacks for the parents who drove all night... They have a few books/magazines available (in take one, leave one mode).

“We had an enjoyable trip!”
The Service: Everyone I spoke to was very nice but the information I received was a little less than perfect. If I had a recommendation, it would be to include a phone number and address/directions to your office in the confirmation email you send out. Our directions were incomplete and when I pulled out the letter to call, I couldn't find the number or address on it and had to dig in my emails for the original rental agreement. It would have been helpful to have this in the confirmation letter. Also, when I finally called, the lady told me the office closed at 6:00 but when we got there we realized it was open until 11:00 p.m. The home: The home was perfect. Everything was super clean and it was just the right size for us. The pool was great and kept clean. The view and location were great. The only problem we had was that we couldn't get on the Internet. There was no password and we called twice and couldn't get an answer from the Realty company. The location/amenities: We are used to Duck, NC in the Outer Banks. I like the quaint feel of the town there. We had an amazing dinner at Kathryn's Bistro and a nice trip to Beaufort, but would have preferred more cute, quaint shops in Emerald Isle vs. the Strip Mall feel. Best/least: Loved the beach, the weather, our house, the pool, Beaufort and our dinner at Kathryn's. Like I said, the town just lacked a little in the quaint, cute feel that I was expecting. Also, the above mentioned confusion with the directions/phone/internet/service at the Realty company.

“Relaxing and Enjoyable”
Great second row home with fabulous ocean views and convenient beach access. Comfortable, clean and equipped with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.
“Clean & Maintained in Emerald Isle”
The "Brown and Barefoot" rental home in Emerald Isle is very clean and well-maintained. The home is updated in decor and amenities. It was a very comfortable & relaxed space without being worn. The yard, landscaping, and pool areas are very nicely kept and appealing to the eye as well as allowing for privacy from the street and other rental homes nearby. We absolutely love Emerald Isle...the beaches and the town are extremely clean, quiet, and friendly. The town is also green with recycling bins everywhere. The weather was perfect during our stay...90 degrees, low humidity, and light winds. The surf was just right for floating, light boogie-boarding, and swimming. The shells were amazingly abundant which made for very long walks on the beach looking for treasures. The pool was refreshing after a day at the beach. The only suggestions that I would make to improve this particular rental would be to add one very nice set of utensils as well as more serving bowls, and nicer pots/pans in the kitchen. I would also suggest posting information about the TV/DVD/VCR and how to use as well as the cable TV. More cable channels would also be appreciated by some, especially teens.
“We truly had a two-week vacation that was perfect!”
The house, pool, and grounds are beautiful. Inside, the furnishings, bathrooms, and the beds were excellent. The porch has an excellent view with comfortable rockers to feel the ocean breezes. In our 14 years of coming to Emerald Isle, this is the best cottage we have rented. Also, the art work on the walls is outstanding and a pleasure to view.
“Fantastic House and Location”
This house has a lot of steps, but it's well worth it. The decks provide views of the ocean and the beach access is new and directly across the street. The house is very clean and well maintained. Very large dining table for our group. Pool was great for all ages, although we did have filter problems....which was immediately attended to by maintenance. Wonderful house and great location!
“An enjoyable week.”
We enjoyed our stay at Brown and Barefoot. A few suggestions - closets need hangers, more furniture in living room, and better filter for the pool. There were probably a total of ten hangers for the entire four bedrooms. Although there were only four of us, we wondered why there were only two chairs and a sofa for a house that could be rented to eight people. The filter on the pool stopped working a couple of times. The pool person told us the filter was too small for the pool.
