  • 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."

  • Wonderful place!!

    "This duplex was clean, very roomy, well-equipped and well-located. We absolutely would recommend this unit to others... and suggest renting the unit next door for an even larger gathering of friends/family. I loved the ample on-site parking, outside shower and foot wash area, lots of outside deck spaces (including a covered outdoor space), etc. With the fully-stocked kitchen, we were able to make all our meals at the duplex. We didn't leave the house or beachfront the whole weekend - we just loved being there the whole time! What's not to love about this property??!! The only downside might be for those who are unable to handle a lot of steps. The unit is spread across 4 "floors". There is a second "master" on the level with the kitchen, den, large outdoor porch which would likely be suitable for someone with limited mobility (once you get them UP there initially). Great for families and couples! It was so close to the beach also... just cross the street to the short boardwalk and you are on the beach. The owner was very attentive and great about communication. Would absolutely hope to return!!"

  • Perfect!

    "My college girlfriends and I all met here for a quick girls weekend. Pat met us to show us the house and all the essential information. The house was perfect for us 4. There was plenty of space and it had everything we needed. A quick walk to the beach and an easy drive to town. We enjoyed our mornings on the screened in porch and our afternoon cocktails on the deck. I know I/we will be back for sure! Thank you Pat!!"

  • The jewel in Emerald Isle!

    "Our group of 8 ladies meet once a year for a get away. We had been going to various state parks in Virginia but decided that we needed a beach retreat in Emerald Isle. After researching the properties, Islandia seemed to fit the bill in many ways. We wanted oceanfront and enough room to accommodate 8 women. Upon arrival, Islandia exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and immaculate. The close proximity of shopping was a huge plus and the views from the deck were spectacular. In addition, Austin was willing to accommodate our partial week stay where many other properties were week to week only. It is very apparent that the owners take great pride in their home and leave detailed instructions for the renters which is always appreciated. This property is a true gem and we hope to be able to return next year!"
