  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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!!"

  • Once Again An Enjoyable Visit

    "We have rented this beach house from the Buckholds for the past few years and per usual we were not disappointed with our most recent stay. Thanks for having us. Hope to see you again in 2015."
