“SECOND WIND BEACH HOUSE”
This is a very nice house, tons of room and, for the most part, well-maintained. The pros are obvious in the pictures: beautiful house and furnishings, comfortable beds and furniture, well-equipped kitchen, etc. The beach is wonderful! Very clean and uncrowded. Most of the time we had it to ourselves. There were plenty of games, toys, and puzzles to keep kids and adults happy on the one rainy day we had. The hot tub was a huge hit, especially after being in the VERY chilly ocean water (well, it was March!)! The things that could have been better: They advertise a gas fireplace, and it is a very nice one, but it is not available for use after March 1st. We were not told about this for our end-of-March visit, and with the chilly temps it would have been very nice to have. They should change the availability to the end of April. They advertise "open and covered decks". Not strictly true. There is no roof over the top deck, so the rain drips right through onto the "covered" deck. The beach chairs and umbrellas were all broken, some with dangerous ragged rusty edges. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone, assuming they have the ability to climb LOTS of stairs!
“Second Wind was our Second Wind”
We arrived at Second Wind and was blown away. We walked in and could see the waves right through he entry. Absolutely beautiful. So refreshing. It was exactly what we were expecting. Each of the rooms were large, clean and inviting. The beds were soft and comfortable. The great room was perfect for our family gatherings and together with the kitchen and dining area, we were able to wine and dine like it was our own home. Perfect. We are definitely looking to book again. Shawn and Sarah Rouse

“Emerald Isle Bunch”
We (my wife, myself, and another couple) found this home while searching the Emerald Isle Realty website. We were thinking of inviting other friends to vacation with us and were looking for a home with enough room so that we would not be in each others business while having plenty of space to spread out and enjoy ourselves. It turned out that 4 other couples decided to join us requiring us to get a home big enough for 6 adult couples and this home fit the bill perfectly. After having a bit of trouble booking on-line I called Emerald Isle Realty and within 5 minutes I had a vacation home for the week and in less than an hour had all the booking and travel info I needed by e-mail...it was way too easy. When we arrived at the home we were blown away by the size. The oceanfront, open concept living area was perfect for all of us socializing very comfortably and there was plenty of space to go and be alone also. The large double decks, with chairs and rockers, were perfect for enjoying coffee or a glass of wine while watching th e sun rise and set. The bedrooms were all large and comfortable, including the beds, and very soundproof. This house is also very well equipped with a huge full kitchen and a large grilling patio under the house. The home is centrally located on EI and about 2 miles from stores and restaurants. The best part about this home is the space and comfort it affords a large group to move around in and the views of the ocean from almost every area. The only downside to this home is that there are a lot of stairs and moving in and out with luggage can be somewhat laboring; also all the wood decks are in need of updating as there are nails popping up and splinters to be had if not cautious. Our group would highly recommend this home and would definetly come back and stay here again.
Response from the manager I'm so pleased to know that you enjoyed your Emerald Isle vacation at Second Wind and found the processes of Emerald Isle Realty to be simple. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will revisit soon. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“We have loved this house for years”
We long said that we had found the perfect beach in Emerald Isle. This is (almost) the perfect beach house. It is comfortable and very nice without being "too nice" that families are afraid to stay here with kids. However, the house and porch/deck are beginning to look shopworn. We had lots of popped nails and broken/weakened chairs and stools. The sliding glass door has always required muscle, but this year it moaned where the wind was coming in. The matress in the master bedroom on the ground floor perhaps needs to be replaced. I know that they are a bonus, but the beach chairs are in bad shape. The hot tub kind of scares me. We just feel that the owners of the house need to repair and replace some things. As much as we love this house and would like to continue to rent it, unless there is some repair and updating, we are looking for a better value for our money.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Second Wind. It pleases me to know that you and your family have enjoyed this home for so many vacations and I hope you will continue to visit it each year. I have forwarded your comments on to our refurbishment team and maintenance department so they can work with the owner to make necessary repairs and improvements. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
We have been coming to EI for 22 years and this was the best house and location. The children's toy/game room was super.
“A Wonderful Vacation Home”
This is our second time staying at the Second Wind and we enjoyed it just the same this summer. The house is not only beautiful and well-equiped but the room sizes are amazing and allowed for everyone to have ample room. It was clean and had everything we needed not to mention a wonderful view of the ocean!
Absolutely no issues at all. Have been coming to Emerald Isle for over 25 years, and this has been the best cottage/home we've stayed in. Plan to return next year.
“Family Vacation 2010”
Second Wind was a great place. We found it was spacious and clean. The beach items from the owner were a surprise and very nice. We would definetly stay there again.
This is a great beach house and we have had many, many to compare it with. It needs a little work as it is looking just a bit shop worn. The layout, furnishings and outdoor living are great. We need a few more serving pieces for the kitchen, since you asked...
This is the third time we have rented from Emerald Isle and each time has been a very good experience. This year we needed a larger place to stay and Second Wind fit perfectly with our family. The house was very clean, and we had no problems at all. We hope to come back next year and enjoy the beautiful beach and relaxation.
