Very Pleasant Stay

  • 4 of 5
Emerald Isle's sound is where we vacation every year. We always try different homes along the sound. This home is in a wonderful neighborhood, close to shopping and restaurants. It has a great dock for fishing and crabbing. We also take our kayaks to paddle around the marsh - a great place for birdwatching.

This home has large windows to enjoy the view. Though it's a bit dated, it appears to have updated flooring, appliances and a large flat screen TV. Beds are comfortable with pretty linens. As with most homes we've rented on the island, the lowest level is just a bit musty, so we didn't use the pool table, nor did we need the extra beds on that level. The rest of the house is clean and very comfortable. Laundry is adjacent to the kitchen - very convenient. Association pool and tennis are not available for renters, but we always find plenty of fun on the island. Trying to open the sticky front door lock was our only negative. So all in all, this is a great spot.

Favorite restaurants are Chowdaheads in EI, Morgan's Tavern in New Bern, and Clayton's in Beaufort. Try kite flying at 'The Point,' visits to Fort Macon, Beaufort's old cemetery and Maritime Museum, New Bern's Tryon Palace and downtown, and Cape Lookout. Swansboro is another cute little town just a quick drive across the bridge.

For the very adventurous, check out The Great Lake just up Hwy 58 in the Croatan National Forest. A one lane gravel road takes you 5 miles to a very secluded, unusual lake. There's a small dock to launch a canoe or kayak. Small alligators may keep you company. Do some research before going and prepare to feel like you're in the Cretaceous period!

This property will stay on our list of favorites. Enjoy!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house for a week. Much better than a beach front house. We were a short walk from the beach but had so much more to do because we were on the bay. The kids fished every day off the dock. We also brought a canoe and used it in the bay. The house was very roomy and fit all of us easily. The family room and kitchen area were perfect for meals. The beds were comfortable. The boys on the trip loved staying downstairs with the bunkbeds and pool table. This was our first time staying in Emerald Isle. We loved the Emerald Isle area. Close to so many activities but in a beautiful area with not much traffic. Highly recommend this house to anyone.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, including three grandchildren, very much enjoyed our stay at this home. The house is as described and was clean and well maintained. We loved the roomy and comfortable seating area in the living room, which is open to the dining and kitchen areas. The house was extremely well equipped for young children, lots of games, furnishings and extras we appreciate like plastic dishes and glasses. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors were quite friendly. We frequently rent homes on the sound side, and this location was perfect for kayaking and clamming off the well lighted dock. The ocean is a short walk or bike ride, directly across from the gated community. There is parking only for bikes or golf carts, however you can easily drive a short distance, to a public parking area for the beach. Our only recommendation for the owner, would be to install a ladder or floating dock to make it easier to launch kayaks or canoes. We also love to bicycle, and this part of the island has a separate paved bike/jogging path. As nicely secluded as this house is, shopping is only minutes away. Lastly, the views of the sound from the house are amazing, we had a terrific lightening storm one night, very cool to watch, and the sunsets on the dock are spectacular. The owner is very responsive and helpful. We would recommend this home to other travelers looking to vacation on Emerald Isle. Be sure to take local ferries over to Bear Island and Shackleford Banks and enjoy a meal at two of our favorites, Chowdaheads and the Carteret Cafe.

Great house in beautiful quiet area

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this house. It's located in a quiet, more exclusive neighborhood, and the wildlife and scenery around the private dock was wonderful. The beach is about a 15 minute walk away, or you can rent a golf cart. All the beaches on Emerald Isle are beautful, but this quieter stretch is even nicer than other parts of the island. The location of the house was also very convenient to restaurants and stores, only a few minutes away. The house was beautifully clean and had plenty of amenities. We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed a perfect and relaxing ladies weekend! Lovely home. Beautiful views of the sound from throughout the house. Sunset dinner on the dock. Bike rides to nearby eateries. Boat ride up to Morehead City for the Blue Marlin Tourney! Easy access to the beach for sunning, running, and swimming. We had a fabulous time! Can't wait to come back again with the family (or without). The house has a lot of great space for friends and family of all ages.

We loved it! Our older kids fished the entire time we were here! It was simply beautiful and was a "home away from home." Community pool and tennis courts were easily accessed and less than a block away! Our younger kids enjoyed bike riding through neighborhood and we were able to relax knowing they were safe in a gated community! It was great to have the beach just a few blocks away and we easily bike over to it. Definitely worth the visit!
