“Will be renting this again”
Have been vacationing on Emerald Isle for the past several years, trying different oceanfront rentals. Freebird East has been the best of all. The location near the point is excellent and allowed quick access to everything. The home is well maintained and decorated with lovely ocean themed items throughout. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen, dining area and living room are a little small - but the large well furnished deck allowed for extending the 'living' area outdoors to enjoy the ocean views (saw dolphins actually jumping out of the water the one afternoon). The discovery of additional items in the storage area was a bonus which we took advantage of everyday (charcoal grill, inner tubes, beach chairs and umbrella, kids toys, boogie boards). A great time was had by all (6 adults, two grandkids ages 2 and 4).
“This well appointed home made it easy to relax and enjoy vacatio”
The only negative about this home was the number of floral arrangements and knick knacks we had to move when we got there. The home was clean, well cared for, well and stocked. The tips other people had suggested seem to have been implemented such as the mdf on railings to prevent splinters. It is great for 6-8 people - a three generation place if a family of 1-4 children goes with grandparents. The downstairs bedroom we used to do puzzles and store extras. A card table would be a great addition to the many amenities. We think it is a good price for what we got and hope to stay here again. Thank you.
“A Perfect Vacation”
We have visited EI virtually every summer for five decades. We consider it the ideal place for a family week at the beach. Freebird East was the perfect place to host our 2013 family getaway. Clean, pleasantly appointed, well kept, and convenient to a great section of the beach, this property is one to which we will certainly return. Emerald Isle Realty provides outstanding service and makes visiting the Crystal Coast simplicity itself.
This was our first time staying in Freebird East and I must say the location was really convenient for the grocery store and shopping. The home its self was very clean, well stocked with dishes etc. but the big bonus was having all the beds made up. This home is very functional, comfortable, and a great place to spend a week at the beach! Having the extra boogie boards and beach chairs were great too. We will be back in 2014!
It was a beautiful place and had an awesome view. The bedrooms were exceptionally large and nice. I wished the living room area was larger.
This is our 2nd year staying at Freebird East. The house is extremely well stocked and the decor is beautiful! One of the best perks was having the beds already made when we arrived!! I would like to suggest some type of non-slip mat on the part of the steps where the shower/hose is as it is very slippery. Also, it would be a great idea to offer returning guests some sort of discount. We have stayed in other houses in EI that do that (I believe it was about $100) and it is a nice benefit. Again...this is the best house we've stayed at in the past 11 years!! :)

“Gathering of Friends and Family”
Great location and views. Great property. Kitchen was a bit crowded. Living area a bit small but for the price was a great deal. Would have preferred to have a recycled deck. This would have been much nicer to walk on. Constant worry about splinters and actually got a few from the handrails and steps. Also would have preferred a gas grill for cookouts. Quicker and less of a mess. Every thing else was great. I would recommend this property to friends and family. If deck boards are changed to recycled ones, will come back next year too!
Overall we had a great time! We have stayed at this house for the last four years and have been very please with the overall appearence, & cleaniness. This year the house was very dirty-vacuumning and wiping mirrors and glass doors were very overlooked. Not sure if we will come back to this house again-sorry
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that the home was not up to the cleaning standards that you’re accustomed to from our reputable company. We believe this was an isolated incident with the cleaning issues as we have rectified them. In the future please be sure to contact our housekeeping department so that we can have the opportunity to correct what is wrong for your stay. We hope that you and your family return to Freebird East and continue the family tradition that you have had the last four years!
“very nice beach home with wonderful beach access”
Overall, we really liked the cottage. Bedrooms were huge, bathrooms very very nice. Living area and kitchen were very adequate. The one drawback that I can think of is that the living areas were a little smaller than we would like. Porch and deck very nice. Lots of deck chairs. Also access to beach chairs and umbrellas was very nice and is not usually available. Excellant location and beach access.
“Beautiful Vacation Home”
We enjoyed our stay at this home because it truly felt like home. The house was well equipped and very comfortable. It was decorated nicely too. The owners even left boogie boards and floats for their guests to use. We plan are returning to Emerald Isle again and will keep this house in mind. We have rented on Emerald Isle for the past 15 years and this is one of the best houses we have rented. Thanks for the memories.
