Our Favorite Beach Getaway!
Submitted: January 16, 2011
Stayed: August 2010
We love this home. Our family has stayed in this home several times. It is our favorite place to take in the sights sounds and smells of the ocean. Once I arrive my worries melt immediately. The location is perfect. I love to sit out on the deck in the evening or early morning while the kids are sleeping. The view of the ocean is completely unobstructed. The sound of the waves is so peaceful. Before finding this home, we stayed in oceanfront homes. I did enjoy the view but sometimes the ocean and wind was very loud enough to be distracting. Oceanfront homes are also much more pricey, even when the home itself isn't special or even very nice.
Beach access is very easy. There is a walkway just across the street and the sand is an easy walk away. The sand is just about 100 yards from the front door.
This home is lovely. It is neat, clean and comfortable. The home has a bright, airy well equipped kitchen and a large bright, comfortable living area. All of the bedrooms are neat clean and fairly spacious. The beds are also comfortable. We have stayed with our family of 2 adults and 2 children and also with our family and our closest friends, with 4 adults and 3 children in the home together. We have always been very comfortable and even with 4 adults and 3 children we never felt cramped.
The owners clearly take a lot of pride in the maintenance and appearance of this home. It really feels much more like a second home than a rental.
Emerald isle is delightful. The beach is beautiful and never crowded. There are lots of great restaurants and many fun things to do. The aquarium is a must see. We could go again and again. Oh, and the miniature golf course is a blast too. Both of these attractions are very close to the house.
