  • 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!"

  • Thank you for a wonderful holiday on Emerald Island!

    "The weather was rainy at first and beautiful at the end! Our favorite adventures included walks on the beach, playing in the waves, being brave on our boogie boards, collecting shells, walking Parker Bear, seeing surfers in the surf festival, watching for jumping fish, pelicans, and helicopters. We enjoyed shrimp from the local store and ice cream too but most of all we enjoyed granna's home grown vegetables! Thank you for a wonderful holiday on Emerald Island!"

  • Great location and nice sunny condo.

    "To start, Suzanne the owner couldn't have been easier to work with. My husband and I took our first post-baby trip here, with our 8 month old son. The condo worked very well for the baby. The bedroom has large accordion-style doors and, when opened, it makes the place feel like a large, sunny studio. It is a very easy walk to the beach and the large pool was awesome. The price was reasonable (we went off-season, over Labor Day weekend). I loved how close it was to the grocery store and my husband and I had a great meal at Rucker Johns. The two decks are awesome and quite private. You can see and hear the ocean, although you're not right on it. There's a paved path nearby that is great for running and I was happy to get my work-outs in. As I've heard others say, Camp Lejeune is nearby and military aircraft do fly overhead quite often. I couldn't believe how loud they were. For us, it was like a free airshow, and we loved it! There were a few negatives that I was surprised people didn't mention in their reviews but I wouldn't 'not' go here based on the few negatives. The only provided trash bags were small plastic shopping bags and there was only one or two uses of hand soap left, so we had to purchase those. The fridge was empty and we were told there'd be condiments, but we didn't need them anyhow. We did have to buy salt, as the only salt provided was 'Lite'. The doors to the bedroom don't shut so there is an approximate 5" gap which lets in a lot of light if you're trying to sleep...we tied a string around the outside to keep them closed...but when I needed to get out, I had to ask to be released. Also, the second pool was closed right after Labor Day, the second day of our trip. It didn't matter, though, as the larger pool stayed open and was uncrowded. The toilet tanks took at least 5 minutes to fill up, so no chain-flushing allowed. The kitchen is dated and the stove had some numbers rubbed off so cooking was a little bit of a guessing game (I guessed right). Overall, this place is a great deal, in a great location and I would certainly recommend it."
