“Ocean view from dawn til dusk”
We loved the view of ocean, even though we were in second row house. There was a quick walk to beach. Our black dachshund truly enjoyed his walks in ocean, sand, and on the street in front of house. Perfect weather made for a wonderful 2 weeks. The fifteen steps going up to the house might be a problem for some people. I liked it; I lost 5 lbs. this vacation!
We had a wonderful stay at Ocean's Reach! The home is conveniently located across from the walkway to the beach and you can sit on the deck rocking way with a great view of the ocean. The realtor should update the photos since they do not show the new wrap-around couch that is comfy for relaxing in the living area. It appears that all of the appliances have been recently replaced. It is great for single family with kids since the two extra bedrooms have two twin bed each.
“It was pleasant and peaceful”
I would have liked more time to reserve a house with more amenities like a pool or jaccuzzi, but that was my fault. Overall, the vacation property was nice and cozy and my husband and I and our two dogs had a blast.
We appreciate the timely manner the cleaning crew came to clean the house that the previous renters had left a mess. We loved the view and the location to the beach access. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch. The weather was beautiful. I called about the need for an ironing board cover, but never heard back. The kitchen is in need of a measuring cup.

“Great location - Good for single family”
The good: I picked this place because the price was reasonable and the reviews were good. It also had free internet; all you need is the password (which is provided when you check in). This is big because it would be expensive for everyone in the family to get their own connection for a fee. The cottage also has a shower with hot water outside, which is nice. It is second row, so it is pretty close to the beach, as you would expect. The house itself was adequate and basically had everything we needed. The inside was clean and had basically everything we needed. The appliances and bathrooms worked. The bad: However, the house is in need of some repairs and a paint job. The handle to a sliding door leading out to the deck came loose because a screw securing it to the door literally snapped in half. The handle unit was old and rusty. The entire house looks very brown and weather-worn. I hate to pick on mostly cosmetic things, but it really was the gloomiest looking place in the immediate area. It would make a huge difference if they painted it yellow or some other bright color to add to the festive feeling of being on vacation. It may sound petty, but I think it makes a difference. The kitchen was decent and had most of what anyone would need, but I was surprised it did not have a toaster or a toaster oven. Overall: This cottage is a perfect size for a family with up to four kids. More can stay if they are willing to sleep in the living room on the sofa bed. The location was everything you would expect from a second row house. With a little TLC, it could be a much more attractive place to stay. I would give four stars for the purely practical aspects, but I gave three because of the overall impression of the place.

We are already booking for 2012 so if you haven't already reserved your place at the beach, please call us - 1-888-832-0140.
“Great location, but the house needs updated”
The house was equipped with most everything we needed but nothing extra. Almost everything in the house is in dire need of being replaced including the furniture,carpet,and kitchen supplies etc. If you don't mind rustic and dated it is in a perfect location. Very close to the beach for a 2nd row house. And it is almost equal distance to the shopping/restaurant areas of both Emerald Isle and atlantic Beach.
The location is great! The cottage needs alot of updates. New and comfortable livingroom furniture, the chairs and sofa looked dirty in spots, new kitchen utensils, pots and pans (we had to buy a frying pan) and carpet. We liked the layout. The deck was wonderful with the picnic table and rocking chairs we made good use of the deck. You can almost feel like you are on the oceanfront. Beach access is right across from the cottage. Beach was small because of erosion from a storm. The only issue is the furnishings. It's a shame because we would love to stay there again. But, when you go on vacation you want to feel comfortable and that just didn't happen.

“First trip to Emerald Isle -- hopefully first of many!”
Ocean's Reach has a wonderful view of the beach, despite being on the second row of homes -- it almost feels like you're oceanfront when you're sitting on the front porch. The home was very well laid-out and comfortable for travelling with small children, because the bedrooms were setoff from the main living space -- it was just a great, comfy, "old-school" beachhouse!
“needed a get away at last moment”
everything went well- friendly phone service, good value, great location, smooth check-in, very clean. will definitely use this service again.
“Great week at the beach”
House is well maintained and clean. Has a well stocked kitchen. Bedrooms segregated from the kithchen/living room which is nice. Washer and dryer on the living level. Nice deck and view. A very enjoyable time.
