  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • Fun Time

    "We stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time. The condo is very spacious and clean and the view from the decks was beautiful. The condos and the grounds are very well maintained and we enjoyed the pool. There was easy access to the beach and the location was great. It was near a grocery store, restaurants and area attractions. The owner was so nice and easy to work with. Definitely hope to stay here again!!"

  • Amazing views!

    "This was our first vacation to Emerald Isle, so we had no other beach house to compare to. The description and photos of the house are exactly right. We were very pleased with the house and amenities that came with it. The hot tub was great and very clean. The absolute best part of the house are the amazing views and beach access. My husband and I did not eat dinner at any restaurants the entire week we were there. We enjoyed cooking every meal and taking in the spectacular ocean views and wonderful ocean breeze. No restaurant could have given us a better view than our own deck. It was absolutely beautiful. I can't say enough about this house and its location. The only thing I had an issue with was the condition of the bed pillows. They need to be replaced. My advice would be to bring your own (we bought new ones at the Dollar General store right up the road). We will absolutely stay at Big Bertha again. Thank you Debbie and Rich for sharing your beautiful home."
