"My husband and I have been going to Emerald Isle every year for the last three years. We'd been looking for a condo that would accommodate our growing family. We feel so blessed to have found this one, and I can honestly say that this is, by far, the nicest place we've stayed at so far! Carey was incredibly helpful from the beginning, making securing the condo a breeze. The condo itself exceeded my expectations and it was clear to see that Carey and Tom put a lot of thought and care into making their condo a space where visitors can relax. Being on the first floor AND right near the pool was perfect since we had a 9 month old.
I would highly, highly, recommend this property and my family is looking forward to making many more fun memories at this condo!"

"Our group of 8 ladies meet once a year for a get away. We had been going to various state parks in Virginia but decided that we needed a beach retreat in Emerald Isle. After researching the properties, Islandia seemed to fit the bill in many ways. We wanted oceanfront and enough room to accommodate 8 women. Upon arrival, Islandia exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and immaculate. The close proximity of shopping was a huge plus and the views from the deck were spectacular. In addition, Austin was willing to accommodate our partial week stay where many other properties were week to week only. It is very apparent that the owners take great pride in their home and leave detailed instructions for the renters which is always appreciated. This property is a true gem and we hope to be able to return next year!"

"We loved the Sunset Lane cottage with its' coastal colors and beach decore'. It was roomy and comfortable for our family and the friends who visited us. The location was great in that we were able to walk to restaurants, shops, and enjoy looking at the charming houses and gardens in town. I would not hesitate to come back and stay here again."

"My family and I have been vacationing along the N.C. coast for several years. We have never stayed at the same place twice simply because the cons always out weighed the pros. That is not the case with Joyful Spirit. We have a large family (6) and we brought along a cousin (which made 7) but with 3 full bathrooms, 2 living rooms, and the closed in patio we never felt cramped. The walk to the beach is the equivalent of a residential block, and the beach wagon that is provided makes it even easier. The owners are very accommodating and great to work with. You will never beat the price for this size rental, two families could easily stay and be very comfortable. The master bed and bath room will make you feel like you have a private oasis away from the rest of the family. And the King size bed is extremely comfortable. I'm always concerned about having a comfortable bed, and this one gets a A+.
If we come back to Emerald Isle this rental will be our first choice!"
