1st trip to Emerald Isle

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your house! Everything was very clean and very well appointed. The short walk to the shoreline from the back deck was nice too.

The house is beautiful and accomdated 8 teens and 2 adults comfortably. Amazing ocean views

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and comfortable. The pictures are good but don't compare to actually being there. This is my first experience with home away having only done hotels in the past. If most of the homes compare to the experience we had at are we there yet I can't imagine ever going back to a hotel. It's worth the stay just for the ocean views alone. We actually saw dolphins just sitting on the deck for morning coffee. The kitchen is very modern and comfortably sat everyone for meals. All the beds are comfortable. Although we didn't spend a lot of time inside it was nice to have a tv in every room and access to wifi. The island is very peaceful and non-commercialized. We didn't have one problem during our stay but if we had needed anything I know it would've been taken care of. Terry is very easy to work with and she made me feel like I had a new friend. We are already planning our return to "our new house" Ladies only this time. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. If i could give it 10 stars I would.

Fabulous view, beautiful house!!

  • 5 of 5

My (now)husband Chris and I stayed at Terry's property for our wedding and honeymoon, and we could not have imagined a more perfect house for the occasion. The views are absolutely stunning, and the house is very nicely appointed and PERFECT for relieving the stress of wedding planning! I would love nothing more than to return for our anniversary next year :) Terry was extremely helpful and responsive, and always just a text message away in case we needed anything! Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thanks so much Terry!!!!! We had a blast!!!

More than a 5 star!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 5th year at "our" beach house (that is how the house feels to us) "Are We There Yet" and booked for next year before we left. This house is incredible and so is Terry, the owner. I struggle to find something new to add to all the wonderful reviews. In a nut shell, clean, very well maintained, beautifully decorated, well stocked kitchen, Weber grill, outdoor shower (excellent for keeping sand out of the house), just steps to the beach and on and on. I challenge anyone to find anything lacking in this house and I guarantee if you do Terry will provide it. Again, thank you Terry for sharing your wonderful beach home with us.

Owner's Response: Your review gave me chills ;) Thanks for such kind words. I'm glad it feels like "your home", that's the intent. Next year you will be enjoying your new kitchen, new Polywood furniture on the deck and of course..... the beautiful ocean/beach in all its glory.

Car: necessary

Emerald Isle is a beautiful, peaceful island on the Crystal Coast (Southern Outer Banks region) of North Carolina. The coastline is pristine and from the deck you can take in the local wildlife; dolphins riding the waves, pelicans flying, even sea turtles making their way to the ocean after hatching. If you choose to venture out onto the island, there are plenty of activities to suit every need. The Bogue Island Pier is a short walk away for fishing, from which you can see surfers and kayakers dotting the ocean. The island has extensive bike trails (and bike rentals) for exploring and exercise. Mini-golf, go-cart racing and the water park are all family fun activities; there is also movies or gift shopping for a more relaxed night out. The island boasts plenty of eateries, 3 golf courses and an aquarium; a short drive away is Historic Beaufort, where you can tour the historic homes of Front Street, visit the North Carolina Maritime Museum, or see the wild horses on Shackleford Banks.
