Beautiful, Clean, Oceanfront Duplex - Perfect Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed a week at this home. The views were amazing and was just a quick walk down the private steps to the beach. Very convenient with little kids to be right on the beach. The large kitchen table was great for family dinners. We could all sit together!

Working with the owners was very easy. They were helpful every step of the way.

We would definitely recommend renting here, and we will consider this if our travels take us back to Emerald Isle!

One of the nicest homes we have ever rented at the beach! The owners were very responsive when we discovered the coffee pot didn't work.. We had a new pot in a few hours! Clean, bright cheerful decor.. And just a few steps to having the sand between your toes!

Beautiful Beach House on a Beautiful Stretch of Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for three families. It was clean, spacious, and very comfortable beds, which is typically rare in rentals. The living room and kitchen area were open and great for entertaining, especially with the fully stocked kitchen. The back deck was perfect to have a margarita and enjoy the ocean. Just a few steps off the deck was the beach, which was not crowded at all. There are shops, grocery, and a great restaurant, CaribSea, within a mile or two. I highly recommend this rental, not only for the house, but the owners were very professional, and responsive. We hope to make this a regular vacation spot each year. We do apologize for not putting the trash out on the correct day - we were visiting beaufort that day and it slipped our mind.

Beautiful Ocean Front Duplex

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two weeks at Sea Maiden East this fall. Everyone really enjoyed the up to date furnishings and decorations. There is adequate perking for about four cars although it can be difficult to get larger cars under the house and you will need to move cars to let others out at times. The bedrooms were all nicely furnished and included ceiling fans. If you have older family members please be aware there are fair amount of steps, both inside and out and there is only one bedroom on the first floor. The bathrooms are all newly updated and extremely nice. The kitchen is nicely sized and includes most everything you could want for beach cooking. The beach is very nice in this area of the island and is just a short distance from the ocean deck. The owners were very easy to work with and responded to all of our questions and made the process go very smoothly. I highly recommend this beach home for your vacation!

So very glad we decided on this home for our mid-Spring family gathering. We found it clean, bright, well-appointed, and close proximity to meet our needs. It was interesting watching the sub-tropical storm roll in and out from the upper deck and mid-deck. The kitchen has just about everything you'd need to prepare a decent meal at the beach. Really liked the immediate access to the beach; adequate parking for 4 cars; good directives on the refrigerator regarding trash pick-up and the like. With 5 good sized bedrooms, there was always a place to retreat to for quiet reading or computer work. And no waiting or fighting over the showers with all of the bathrooms. With the front and deck doors open, there was little or no need for any fans to be one--wonderful cross breezes. Atlantic Beach and Beaufort are up the road a piece and made for a great day trip to Shackleford Island for the most outstanding shells! We regretfully returned to our homes in KY, NY and just up the road in New Bern, at the end of a well-relaxed, enjoyable week. The owners were great to work with and we truly appreciate them sharing their home with us. We are already making plans for next Spring. We would totally recommend this home. Thank you!
