We are a fun loving couple currently living in Cape Carteret just a short drive from Emerald Isle! We are both animal lovers involved in animal rescue. We welcome families to come and enjoy their vacation with the family pet! We enjoy dining out and being active in all that the Crystal Coast has to offer. We would love for you to come stay with us at 'A Sea Dream' and start dreaming at the beach!
Julie Ash purchased this house in 1999
We feel blessed to own a piece of Oceanfront property and would love to share it with you!
Truly 'A Sea Dream'! Location! Location! Location! Can't Beat the Oceanfront & Sound Views from Every Room in this Lovely 3 story Beach Cottage. Great Family Open Layout helps you enjoy Sunrises & Sunsets from the Wall of Windows on the Main Floor & Top Floor Bedrooms!
We really enjoyed your Beach house! The weather was amazing & we also got to watch sea turtles hatch & make it to the ocean! Very Cool!! We'll be contacting you about renting next year. Our family really enjoyed our stay. Thank you. 5*
Julie, who is the owner of this home, was so vey accommodating from the moment I reached out to her to inquire about her home. She worked with me to ensure that I was happy with the rental terms, even allowing me to bring two dogs (I decided to leave them both home) but thought that her gesture was very kind. The view from this home is just spectacular! The back of the home has just been updated with new windows and we had such a clear view of the ocean, It also looked like the deck was recently updated. The home was very spacious and fit our family of 13 perfectly with plenty of room to spare. We had a couple of beds that went unused as that is how spacious this home is. The kids slept in the bottom floor room which is just perfect! There is room for 6 kids and they very much enjoyed having their freedom from the adults and we enjoyed the quiet upstairs while they were having a fun time downstairs. We used the hot tub only once and it was very nice. The kitchen had everything and anything needed to cook any type of meal including Thanksgiving! I don't recall the last time I saw a kitchen so stocked! We brought our BBQ with us, but Julie had one at the property and even provided the propane, next time the BBQ is one less item we need to bring with us. The kitchen table, held all 13 of us, we had to pull over a few extra chairs, but we loved that we were all able to sit at the same table each night for dinner. The fireplace in the living room allowed us to relax even more while enjoying the comfortable couches. Nice TV in living room, along with cable and WIFI in the house which is a huge deal when you have several kids.
We arrived a little after 3:00 and the owners were still in the home finishing up the clean-up. They seemed like nice people and it was nice to chat a bit with them. The layout of the house was great for our family with 5 kids, 8 adults and a dog. One of the main selling points for me was the supposed great view of the beach from inside the house. Unfortunately the windows were coated with salt and dirt from broken seals. The owners said they had the windows but had not had them installed yet. The view from all the rooms with windows on the seaside were obscured so there were no great views as advertised. Luckily, we had beautiful weather and could get out on the deck and on the beach a lot. Some of the issues a previous reviewer had mentioned have been fixed but others have not. The railings on the inside stairs are still quite wobbly and there is a gap my 3 year old granddaughter could have fallen through...really scary! There is new deck flooring on the main deck but there is a large gap between the boards and the house. The doggie gates are still about useless. The chairs on the deck outside the master bedroom are not usable. The mesh fabric on one of the lounge chairs was torn off on one side and the others looked dry rotted. The tables and chairs otherwise were fine. The grill came as promised with gas which was nice and worked well. It was filthy though and we didn't find a brush or grilling utensils. The downstairs rooms were musty but I guess that should be expected at the beach. Some of the overhead lights didn't work (tried the bulbs with no luck). The washer and dryer worked well. Mid week, the owners informed us men would be coming to repair a leak in the roof around a vent in the master bedroom. The occupants of that room had not wanted to tell me that it was leaking after some rain. Luckily we did not have a lot of rain because there did appear to be leaking still after the men had done their "repair." Much to our disgust, the rats are still there. There is a big hole in the floor next to the sliding glass door which may be an entry point. They ate holes in baby bottle nipples, peanut cans, avocados in a deep glass bowl on top of the refrigerator, our dog food bin, bag of coffee, our cooler, a plastic bin we had food in and more. Ants were quite a problem as well. This house has great potential but needs lots of work.
My husband, our three kids and family dog had an amazing vacation at "A Sea Dream". The views are spectacular and we basically had the beach behind the home all to ourselves. We have a special needs son and the convenience to be able to come inside when needed was essential. The home is lovely and has ample space. The owners were very accommodating, friendly and communicated perfectly...not too much and not too little. There is shopping, mini- golf and restaurants but it's not overwhelming. The home was well stocked...among our favorites a gas stove with griddle and a waffle maker. AND DONT FORGET THE MILLION DOLLAR VIEW! Our family will never forget this vacation full of blessings, fun and bonding. Thank you, Julie and Ken!
Emerald Isle is fantastic. The beach and water were fantastic. But be warned, the pictures of "A Sea Dream" do not accurately portray the condition of this home. This rental home has been neglected and you will be disappointed. I could write multiple pages of complaints and supply lots of details but I’ll get straight to the point with a concise list of problems with the place:
- Deck needs major repairs. Rusty nails sticking up, loose/rotten boards, and loose railings
- Rodent problem (rat traps in the house, and we found a rat in the gas grill)
- Water damage in many spots in the house. Excess moisture on the bottom floor
- Roof leaked water into upstairs bedroom while we were there
- Dryer does not work, most likely due to obstruction of vent
- Loose stair railings inside
- Mold in the showers and sewer odor in downstairs bathroom
- Outside shower has rotten boards and exposed electrical switch with no face plate
- Mildew and rotten animal odors in the bottom floor. Air fresheners used in a pathetic attempt to conceal odor.
- Dog gate that was advertised is in tatters and not functioning
- Hot tub worked but the cover was all busted up and needs to be replaced
- Carpets and floors were disgusting and in need of cleaning
- Insufficient smoke detectors. No carbon monoxide detectors
- Cannot see the beach from the hot tub as advertised
- Ant infestation
- Screen door in bunk room was missing handle and could not be opened
- In general the house is just beat up
This house could be nice but the owners have evidently neglected the place for many, many years and they don’t seem to care. In my opinion, as someone who owns rental properties, this house should not be rented to guests in the current condition as it has considerable potential health and safety hazards. I strongly advise you to find another place to stay.
The only reason I gave two stars for Overall and Experience were because Emerald Isle itself is very nice and the beach is nice. If the review system would have let me, the place would have got zero stars.
Our family had a great time here, four families with kids between the ages of 2 to 19. We loved being so close to the beach and having all the comforts of home. The short walk to the water made it easy to come and go without it being a project, we'd set up chairs and umbrellas in the morning and leave them up til the end of the day. We did have a set of walkie talkies that worked out really well for calling people for dinner etc, plus we had almost constant funny conversations with them so they were well worth it. The house is very well kept and accommodated our large family gathering. Loved (needed) two full sized refrigerators and the huge dinning table. The views are amazing from the living areas, decks and most of the bedrooms. The only issues we had were with the deck needing some work, had to make sure the little ones wore shoes up there and we could have used more hot water. I wasn't surprised we kept running out with so many people but I would recommend those tankless hot water heaters for a future upgrade. The owners were very helpful and responsive when we had questions.
My family and I had an amazing time at A Sea Dream! The owner stopped by to check the hot tub and he was very nice! All three floors were beautiful! The deck space and deck furniture was perfect! Even my 95 year old grandmother had a wonderful time! We had 5 generations there and made some wonderful memories! God is good!
