Emerald Isle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Classic Carolina Oceanfront... not many left! Best Deal for oceanfront available!If you want to come and stay ON the beach without paying 6-8k and worry free, this is for you. We are located on a great part of Emerald Isle. This cottage was built in the early 1970s by a lumber mill owner with all cypress lumber in and out.

Hardwood flooring with great clean new feel without sacrificing the classic cottage style! Arguably the best deck around. We provide all the linens and amenities necessary, you bring your bathing suits.

This is a five bedroom and three bath home. The beds are two kings, three queens, and two twins. Five televisions. Large deck with rockers for endless views. Come play and relax. Pick your days... not just Sunday to Sunday! Want eight days... if we have it, you can rent it! It's your vacation.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Emerald Isle for over 20 years to get away from the hustle and bustle and to relax. Tired of dealing with the crazy add on's and fees when dealing with rental agencies we turned to VRBO. We have found our 'forever' beach home. We favor old school cottages, no need for swimming pools, elevators and soaking tubs. This is a cozy and relaxing family home, with original cypress walls and exterior. Gloriously original. Sensible upgrades to the baths and floors have enhanced the comfort, while retaining the original feel. The porch has the best views on the beach. The housekeeping staff readies the home with EVERYTHING that you will need. Towels, linens, beach towels, paper goods-they have thought of everything. Just arrive and 'hit the beach'. The owners are a pleasure to work with. We couldn't be happier.

Once Again An Enjoyable Visit

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this beach house from the Buckholds for the past few years and per usual we were not disappointed with our most recent stay. Thanks for having us. Hope to see you again in 2015.

Fabulous Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I wrote this before, but so far hasn't shown up! Here goes again. We rented this house for a family reunion. 3 boys and they're kids and my husband and I. We fell in love. The Buckholds ate awesome landlords. We've used VRBO before and I was pleased with ALL THE EXTRAS they provided. The view is great....dolphins, the Super Moon over the water, great beach....too much to get down. The location is central to everything you need. I was impressed with the total beauty of this home. The wood paneling was gorgeous. All the beach towels, beach chairs and beach toys were provided. We drove from Southwest Missouri and to arrive at this peaceful beauty was a real treat. I recommend this home for one couple, 2 couples and families. Pease give this home a try. If we ever get back this way....we will definitely stay again.

Our Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family cannot say enough about how wonderful this house is... It's clean, very. Extremely well stocked- you have absolutely anything you could need in the kitchen, from cooking oil, matches for the grill, tons of utensils and pots and pans. The view is phenomenol from multiple rooms. All the beds have great mattresses and sleep well, we all have bad backs, and not one person complained of sore backs while staying here! The linens are organized and not cheap, they feel so soft and the towels are large and thick. Outside: the deck is where we spent a lot of time. It is large, has plenty of rocking chairs, the added wire fencing to it allowed for our small dogs to roam freely without us worrying abou them slipping through. Outside showers, water hose, tons of beach and water toys, a Ping pong table, new flat screen Tvs all throughout house, clean and comfy living room sitting, large kitchen/dining table to eat on....I honestly can't think of one negative thing to say. We WILL be back, and it can't happen soon enough!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week: home very clean, in good shape: can't beat the view. Watched dolphins playing in late afternoons from deck. Home well stocked with all amenities. Beds comfortable. Would love to return again soon. Really appreciate being able to bring my two dogs with me. They had a blast playing in the sand. Very impressed with welcoming feel of rental home. Thank-you to owners for a wonderful week.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beach house. It's always a pleasure dealing with the Buckholds. The fact they are so accommodating and accessible should the need arise really enhances our vacation experience. As was the case with our last visit, we found everything in order. All we had to do was unpack then RELAX! Thank you Carla and Keith. I certainly hope we can do it again next year.

PS: The kayak fishing adventure was a memory of a lifetime!
