"Not sure where to start...this duplex was one of the cleanest, well equipped places we have stayed on the east coast. Four bedrooms, each with their own bathroom...unheard of! Austin & Margaret are exceptionally helpful and you can tell that they want you to enjoy your stay and they do all they can to ensure you do. As described, the Emerald Plantation mall is within a less than 10 minute walk where you will find Rucker John's Restaurant, Food Lion, The County Store & other gift shops, Michael Angelo's Pizza and more. Plus a great little hardware store, Sound Ace Hardware that carries YETI products!!!! We took a ferry over to Hammock Beach on Bear Island and then a marsh tour with Capt. Tim that was very educational and we saw so many dolphin and egrets...lots of history here. A short car ride away is Beaufort NC which is a charming, historical place to visit. Stopped by Fort Macon...just so much to do and so little time. We also got to see sharks right off the pier which is .9 miles from Islandia! Our section of the beach was less populated than either side of us, up & down the beach which was nice. Lots of fishermen, fun to watch. A couple in our small group did a lot of biking (which bike rental is within walking distance of Islandia East) and found some beautiful spots (8 ml ride one day)! Highly recommend (but there are a lot of steps)."

A WARM, HOMEY PLACE CERTAIN TO MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS!
"So very glad we decided on this home for our mid-Spring family gathering. We found it clean, bright, well-appointed, and close proximity to meet our needs. It was interesting watching the sub-tropical storm roll in and out from the upper deck and mid-deck. The kitchen has just about everything you'd need to prepare a decent meal at the beach. Really liked the immediate access to the beach; adequate parking for 4 cars; good directives on the refrigerator regarding trash pick-up and the like. With 5 good sized bedrooms, there was always a place to retreat to for quiet reading or computer work. And no waiting or fighting over the showers with all of the bathrooms. With the front and deck doors open, there was little or no need for any fans to be one--wonderful cross breezes. Atlantic Beach and Beaufort are up the road a piece and made for a great day trip to Shackleford Island for the most outstanding shells! We regretfully returned to our homes in KY, NY and just up the road in New Bern, at the end of a well-relaxed, enjoyable week. The owners were great to work with and we truly appreciate them sharing their home with us. We are already making plans for next Spring. We would totally recommend this home. Thank you!"

"Beautiful place, tastefully decorated, enough room for everyone to have a quiet time. Loved the layout especially the first floor room with the washer and dryer. Beach towels stopped right there! Loved the shady spot under the apartment - the outside shower and the fun time we had grilling out. Couldn't have been better and the owner "Robin" was wonderful and so easy to work with!"

"We were celebrating my husbands 70th birthday and couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. This was our first trip to Emerald Isle and we enjoyed the entire time we were there. The home is very comfortable, easy beach access and is great if you have small children. We spent a lot of time at the beach and relaxing on the deck and hammock. The aquarium was a great place to visit and Beaufort was also very nice. This home is ideally situated for grocery shopping, picking up fresh fish and some great seafood places. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. We enjoyed walks on the beach and looking for crabs at night. They are very entertaining. We loved every minute of our stay and were sad to have to leave to head home. We hope to make this a place to visit often."
