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.

Just what we thought it would be

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week stay and we had the most relaxing, amazing stay. The view is breathtaking, the location to everything in town is perfect and working with Terry, the owner, was as easy as pie. If I texted her, she texted me back within minutes. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation!!!!! It was worth every penny. I don't have one complaint!!!!

Owner's Response: it was wonderful corresponding back and forth with you!! I always try to answer promptly because it's your vacation, you should be free of any worries. I'm glad our cleaners located your electronic equipment and my manager was able to connect with your friend to get it back to you. Phew.... all is good ;) Vacations at the beach are the BEST, especially Emerald Isle. Yes, I'm biased. Come back soon!!!

Awesome stay at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week on the beach staying at Are We There Yet! The house has everything you might need for your stay and Terry was helpful and prompt in answering any questions. The house worked really well for our group with multiple families - the kids loved being able to sleep together in their own room and the den worked great as extra play space when they needed to get out of the sun - or as a quiet area where they could hang out in the morning while the adults slept in! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some great fish from the local seafood market on the gas grill. We're looking forward to returning again one day.

A Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with all the comforts included. Our families all had a relaxing vacation. This was our first time to Emerald Isle and it was a nice place. You have most everything you need in close proximity and traffic is not a problem. We hope to be back again!

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.
