"Everything was great! Very up to date and clean! Very close to the beach. Owner was very friendly and helpful when needed. It would have been nice to have access to beach chairs and bicycles since we flew to NC. Access to garage would have been nice too. There was a tornado warning while we were there and we had no where to go."

"This house was large enough to accommodate 8 adults and 2 children (ages 5 and 1). There is a separate apartment in the basement which worked well for the family with the little ones. The kitchen was well stocked with whatever you need to cook for a large family. The location was good, the beds were comfy, it was clean which is a plus at the beach! Lots of steps so it's not recommended with someone with health issues or bad knees or hips. They did have plenty of baby gates to block off the steps from the baby. The downside was the clothes dryer didn't work very well (usually had to go through 2 cycles), the bed pillows need to be replaced, they were very flat. We stayed in the small room (crews quarter) with the bunk beds and queen bed, it was very crowded and warm with the door closed, could use a ceiling fan if they could figure out how to do it with the bunk beds. We rented through Century 21 and we weren't very happy with their customer service. I assume going through vrbo would be better. We didn't have internet service even after repeated calls and promises to send someone out. We chose the linen service and didn't receive enough wash cloths, after repeated calls about this, received hand towels instead. So all in all, the house was great but the rental agency could use some work."

"This is the second summer that we have stayed in this condo and love it! It is steps from the beach and has a beautiful view from the balcony. The condo is very nicely decorated and quite comfortable! When we contacted the owner about possibly checking in early he was so accommodating and let us know to just knock on the door and see if they were ready and if not we could drop our stuff at least and head to the beach! This worked perfect for us! We have been renting in this complex for the past ten years and this is our favorite so far! Emerald Isle has something for everyone! Can't wait till next summer!"

"Ship's Quarters was a fantastic property for our family to stay. We used both the east and west side. The views from all balconies were fantastic. We had our coffee in the morning while looking out at the ocean. In the afternoon, we could watch the kids swim in the pool while looking out at the sound. The houses were equipped with everything we needed (blenders, washer/drier, tupperware, coffee maker, etc.). We held family dinners on both sides and had plenty of room for all of of us. The east side had an additional fridge/freezer, which came in handy. The elevator on the west side was perfect for a family member in a wheelchair. She slept on the main floor, which had a stand up shower that worked perfectly. There was plenty of room to maneuver her wheelchair around the main floor and on the balconies. We all loved the pool. The beach access is right across the street. Evening visits to the beach were our favorite. We also liked visiting the sound where some of the family kayaked and kids searched for shells. We brought the kayaks to the sound side and left them there for the day so whoever wanted to use them in the group could. We brought our bikes and rode them to the pier and Sweet Spot. The bike trail is very close to the property. Terri (owner) was fantastic to work with. She let us know that we could rent a beach wheelchair from the local fire department. The fire department was also great to work with! Tobey (manager) was very responsive and great to work with as well. We've never stayed at the point, but now wouldn't stay anywhere else!"
