  • Big house, big views, big fun!

    "We had a family reunion of our immediate family and the house was perfect with plenty of room for all. The kitchen was wonderful for cooking our meals and the big dining table and kitchen island allowed us all to have dinners together. Views from the deck were spectacular and we loved sitting there together and watching the waves. The house had big bedrooms and was nice, modern and well equipped. Kids enjoyed the beach, the pool and the hot tub and had a lot of fun! Owners were helpful, attentive and easy to deal with. Highly recommend!"

  • Very Pleasant Stay

    "Emerald Isle's sound is where we vacation every year. We always try different homes along the sound. This home is in a wonderful neighborhood, close to shopping and restaurants. It has a great dock for fishing and crabbing. We also take our kayaks to paddle around the marsh - a great place for birdwatching. This home has large windows to enjoy the view. Though it's a bit dated, it appears to have updated flooring, appliances and a large flat screen TV. Beds are comfortable with pretty linens. As with most homes we've rented on the island, the lowest level is just a bit musty, so we didn't use the pool table, nor did we need the extra beds on that level. The rest of the house is clean and very comfortable. Laundry is adjacent to the kitchen - very convenient. Association pool and tennis are not available for renters, but we always find plenty of fun on the island. Trying to open the sticky front door lock was our only negative. So all in all, this is a great spot. Favorite restaurants are Chowdaheads in EI, Morgan's Tavern in New Bern, and Clayton's in Beaufort. Try kite flying at 'The Point,' visits to Fort Macon, Beaufort's old cemetery and Maritime Museum, New Bern's Tryon Palace and downtown, and Cape Lookout. Swansboro is another cute little town just a quick drive across the bridge. For the very adventurous, check out The Great Lake just up Hwy 58 in the Croatan National Forest. A one lane gravel road takes you 5 miles to a very secluded, unusual lake. There's a small dock to launch a canoe or kayak. Small alligators may keep you company. Do some research before going and prepare to feel like you're in the Cretaceous period! This property will stay on our list of favorites. Enjoy!"

  • No Wake Zone- a MUST vacation for a GREAT time!

    "No Wake Zone was an absolute wonderful vacation for my family and I. We could have not asked for a more beautiful view with so many adventures close by! The house was well taken care of with a well stocked kitchen allowing us to cook a delicious meal every night. It was an absolute pleasure seeing the dolphins every morning, going on walks on the beach and the tranquility was to die for. Every night the windows were kept open to enjoy the ocean sounds and incredible sunrises. There are plenty of activities near by and if you have a car, there are cute little towns that are an easy commute for you to visit. New Years Eve we had the pleasure of staying at home and being able to perfectly see the fireworks shooting off from the pier- it was awesome! Jackie was a pleasure to work with and very sweet! I HIGHLY recommend this place for a fabulous get away for all ages!"

    "Beautiful, exceptionally clean, absolutely perfect in every way! We loved the views, the well stocked kitchen, great tv's, and private bedrooms. The dolphins played every afternoon in front of the house. The sun rises and sunsets were gorgeous. We hope to return!"
