"We LOVED your place! My daughter, sister and I went their to visit with my son how is stationed in Havelock. the cottage has EVERYTHING you will need. My sister had never stayed at a VRBO and was amazed at the things the owner provided not only from information but Aloe lotion, that I used immediately upon entering the home (too much son in the car!) New Bern is a wonderful little time and we spent two days there sight seeing. The owners are VERY responsive and will answer any questions you have. I will stay there again."

"My husband and I were looking for a weekend away and chose to stay at Shell Cottage. What a great decision. The cottage was perfect in every way and an easy walk to downtown Beaufort. We will definately plan to stay again. Thanks Deborah.

"We stayed here for one week with our children - ages 15, 5, and 1.5, and we had a great time. The house was clean and offered plenty of family space and privacy when needed (the little one had no trouble taking naps in the children's room). We spent a lot of time on the beach, obviously. From the deck we saw dolphins one night, and a very cool thunderstorm over the water another night. There were usually only a handful of people on the beach. We were able to put our stuff out in the morning, and leave it there all day. If you do happen to bring your young child, make sure you bring a booster seat. The kitchen chairs are very high."

"This was our first trip to Emerald Isle. Back in February when we were looking for a place online, we came across Big Bertha. The week we needed was available and the photos, description and reviews looked great. Well they were right. Big Bertha is fantastic! Myself, my wife and two teenagers (17 and 13) had an absolute great week on vacation there. Right from the start of booking our week, Debbie was fantastic with info and correspondence via email and mailings to after our vacation was over of checking in with us to make sure all went well. The photos don't lie, the views from Big Bertha are incredible. Being able to come and go down to the beach from the house whenever you wanted was exactly what our family was looking for. When I was done with the sun for awhile, I was able to sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean view while my family stayed down on the beach and in the water. Big Bertha is clean, comfortable and truly your dream home away from home for a week. Look no further than this one, you wont be sorry. We have already reserved our week for next year."
