This house is in a perfect location and is very clean and well taken care of. The beach is so close that we had no problem letting our 6 and 9 year old children run around while we were inside. Our group had four adults and four children and was just the right size.
The beach was very clean and not crowded. We found some great shells and it was easy walking distance to the pier and shops.
What a wonderful week we just had at this beautiful home! The weather had been predicted to be kind of messy but we actually had a great weather week! Enjoyed the beach everyday! The house was perfect for our family. Kitchen was well-appointed. Enjoyed the hottub! A pleasant surprise was the fish cleaning area which came in handy since we did catch a couple fish!! Grocery store is very close by. All in all, lots of convenience when you stay at this beautiful home! Beautiful views! Great deck beachside with lots of chairs. And lots of parking space. Pier is within easy walking distance too.
My family has spent the past three years at this wonderful location to relax and unwind during our daughters' spring break. Although we roll the dice with weather in the "off season" -- we have never been disappointed, even if the temps barely break 70. The view is breathtaking, and this year we saw dolphins swiming right off the beach every day! The sound of the waves breaking just outside your window, and views of sunrise and sunset -- not to mention beautiful moonlight -- over the water are both stunning and calming at the same time. We were able to bring our sweet golden retriever with us for two years, and he may have enjoyed the oceanside walks more than any of us! It's easy to stay in and hunker down making your own meals and just enjoying the serenity, but there are a few cute spots to try for lunch or dinner in the town area as well. Very family friendly and easy to get around, although I imagine the traffic during peak season makes things a bit slower. The house is close enough to walk or bike to pretty much any of the restaurants or shops, including a grocery store, and there is a bike trail just a block away that gets you access to pretty much anywhere on the island, and the local community center is also within walking distance if you wanted to take in a yoga class or just get into the gym while vacationing. Our young girls (ages 3, 5, 7 during our first stay in 2011) can handle the many various stairways, but they could pose problems for some. The wi-fi can be spotty, but when you're enjoying a location as gorgeous as this, it's good to disconnect a little anyway. We have many special memories from this location and are thankful we've had the chance to stay here more than once!
This was a fabulous place to stay. My husband and I were looking for a nice quiet get away for a few days and we were not disappointed. It was everything the listing described and so much more. Instead of spending the week ruing my decision because of cleanliness issues, etc., I found this place delightful! You can't improve on ocean front, but this place made it even easier to enjoy. For instance, I do not believe I have ever been in a kitchen in a beach rental as organized and clean as this one ~ each drawer and cabinet was streamlined to meet every need and in great shape. The owners thought of every detail in this place. The hot tub was clean, well maintained ~ not to mention wonderful and relaxing. My husband made the comment to me that the living room television (with all the remotes!) was by far the easiest to master...and that is saying something for our generation! The washer and dryer was state of the art. The beds were very comfortable...I do not believe I have ever rested better in a vacation rental, and we try to go at least twice a year. As I told the gentleman we rented from, the only improvement I would suggest is new shower heads in the hall bathrooms. (By the way, he was very kind and accomodating from the get-go!) It was so nice to get home last night and not to have to wash all the towels and linens from the week. We will be back!!
I have never rented a house at the beach before this trip. I have always traveled but this vacation had always escaped me until now. My 2 goldens had never seen the beach so I searched and found this beach house which did not let me down. Two best dog friends, check (one a therapy dog, one an obedience dog), one best friend from college, check and the most inviting, bright, cheerful beach house, double check. It was perfect start to finish....ok, maybe one little "dogs off leash" ticket but it couldn't have been totally perfect, right? Niece's wedding at the end of the week so the house included our family celebration. It was a quite perfect haven. Thank you.
I must say that my family of 4 had a great time at this home. We love Emerald Isle and have always stayed at a condo there. This is a first time at a house. The rate for the weekend was surprisingly low. The house was everything advertised. When we checked in the home was clean, everything spotless. Rooms were spacious and delightfully decorated. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever slept on. Access to the beach was perfect, felt like we were on a private beach, no large crowds. This home is pet friendly, which was a plus for us with a small dog. We especially enjoyed the hot tub! The home was close to our favorite eateries, Jordans & Flippers, so that was a plus. We will try to get back to the area later in the year and will definitely stay here again. Working on trying to get the wife's sister and family to join us next year. There's room for a lot of people. If you are looking for an affordable place for a week or a weekend consider this home. My complements to Keith for the service he provided. We emailed him to see if the home was available and he responded immediately, we booked it and made plans to go. The contract was emailed to us. He was trusting enough that we were able to leave the contract and check at the home when we left on Sunday. We will definitely be back!
