Why Terri Hepler chose Emerald Isle

After coming to Emerald Isle with our family for several years, we visited the Point area. We loved the area so much we decided to buy a house there. It is the most secluded, quiet and beautiful part of the island! A great place to ride bikes, with the ocean on one side and the sound around the corner. The beach at the point is the widest part of the island, with great fishing and sunsets. Once you stay on this end of the island, I can guarantee that you will never want to go anywhere else! All of our renters have agreed and come back often.

What makes this cottage unique

The large private pool with very large deck area is a great place for a family gathering. There is a covered patio adjacent to the pool for added shade. The views are some of the best on the island, with ocean views from 2 front decks and sound views from 2 covered back decks. Watch the ocean on one deck, and move to the back decks to watch sunsets, deer in the backyard, or enjoy the view of the Coast Guard Station and boats in the sound.

Great Week at Emerald Isle!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for a week in June with my brothers and their families as well as my Mom. We rented both sides of the home which was more than enough space. There were 16 of us in all including 5 children ages 2-8. The pool was great entertainment for the kids and the short walk to the beach made for great fun in the sand for the little ones. We had 5 five vehicles in total and we would've had plenty of room to park if we had 10. We would definitely consider staying at this property again.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

Ship's Quarters was a fantastic property for our family to stay. We used both the east and west side. The views from all balconies were fantastic. We had our coffee in the morning while looking out at the ocean. In the afternoon, we could watch the kids swim in the pool while looking out at the sound. The houses were equipped with everything we needed (blenders, washer/drier, tupperware, coffee maker, etc.). We held family dinners on both sides and had plenty of room for all of of us. The east side had an additional fridge/freezer, which came in handy. The elevator on the west side was perfect for a family member in a wheelchair. She slept on the main floor, which had a stand up shower that worked perfectly. There was plenty of room to maneuver her wheelchair around the main floor and on the balconies. We all loved the pool. The beach access is right across the street. Evening visits to the beach were our favorite. We also liked visiting the sound where some of the family kayaked and kids searched for shells. We brought the kayaks to the sound side and left them there for the day so whoever wanted to use them in the group could. We brought our bikes and rode them to the pier and Sweet Spot. The bike trail is very close to the property. Terri (owner) was fantastic to work with. She let us know that we could rent a beach wheelchair from the local fire department. The fire department was also great to work with! Tobey (manager) was very responsive and great to work with as well. We've never stayed at the point, but now wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Review #9000358 Perfect Place for Us!

Ship's Quarters is so well designed that on this year's multi-family vacation (with eight young children) even rainy days were fun! The views from every deck are amazing, all rooms have fun beach themes and the covered Tiki Bar area is so large that we held regular games of corn hole there. This home is extremely well equipped from baths to kitchens to children's games and equipment. Renting both sides worked perfectly for us, and the elevator came in very handy. The pool area is large, offering plenty of room for everyone to sit or swim. This location is very unique with either the beach or the western tip of Emerald Isle just short walks away. Sunsets on The Point are simply too remarkable to describe... they must be experienced. Perhaps the best part was the feeling we all expressed throughout the week about how warm and inviting this home was. We truly felt as if we were staying with friends. I highly recommend contacting the owner if this listing is even remotely intriguing to you. She is very easy to work with, as is the property manager, and I feel sure you won't be disappointed!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family met at this lovely cottage, families coming together from Ohio and Arizona. We rented both sides and they were equally nice. Our grandkids spent hours in the pool and there were lots of chairs to accommodate all 18 of us. The location was perfect, a short walk to a huge private beach at the point of the isle. The views from all the decks were awesome and we loved having the ocean on one side and the sound (pool) on the other side. We are going to try and come again in 2016 and will certainly hope to rent this house again. The owner and property manager were very nice to work with. Our only negative for the entire week was our experience with the no see um bugs (sand fleas) but we will be prepared next time for them.

My family enjoyed this home so very much; it was spotless, well-equipped with everything we needed (an more), and located at the perfect spot on Emerald Isle. The beach is wide, wonderful and spotless. The tiki bar and pool were the perfect spots for a relaxing Father's Day cookout. Thanks to the owners for creating such an excellent place for our family to enjoy time together.

Recently I rented one side of this house with some friends. We had the best time! Everything about it was perfect. It was very clean (I am a picky one for that), it had lots of room and plenty of bathrooms, the pool was fantastic and the location ideal! We love the beach, but one day it was a bit windy so we hung around the pool and enjoyed ourselves so much! The Tiki bar is a fun touch. We loved walking to the beach and on the beach and we LOVED having the house so close so we could stay on the beach all day but have easy access to the house. We loved the house so much that we enjoyed cooking in. But when we did go out, the restaurants were very close by so not much driving time. I hope to get to this house again. Either rent the whole thing with extended family or rent just half with my family. I enjoyed speaking with the woman who rents the house. She was very nice and very accommodating. Can't wait to go back!!
