  • Wonderful home, excellent location and everything you need

    "My family and I recently stayed in this wonderful home. It is located in a small private community. The neighborhood is very quite, clean and peaceful. Just a short walk to the pool or beach. The home has everything you need and at a very, very fair price. We loved the living area being on the top floor. It has a huge open living room and dining room area. The large sectional furniture was perfect for that evening movie especially considering the excellent surround sound system. The porch that wraps half way around the two floors is also very nice for that early morning coffee or evening refreshment. We have six children and the neighborhood was very safe. We were more than comfortable with them being able to walk to the pool or the beach. The streets are also very good for biking or rollerblading. We highly recommend this retreat for families with children. One last point. Go to Morehead Waterfront and eat at the Ruddy Duck. Flounder is out of this world."

  • Best Kept Secret

    "My family just finished our week long vacation at this rental property and had a terrific time. The location is perfect. We were literally steps from the ocean and the pool. The home was very clean and had lots of "extras" at our disposal. This property is an end unit thus has a wrap around deck with open views of the beach and the pool. This community of Pine Knoll Townes is ideally located to the aquarium and local grocery and restaurants. We loved Michealangelos Pizzeria located just 5 miles down the road! This location is very family oriented with lots to do and see, yet seems to be much more quiet than other parts of the island community. The owners were very helpful and easy to work with. This is definitely a location we would rent again and recommend to others. We look forward to visiting again!"

    "This was a WONDERFUL place to get some rest and relaxation! It is so peaceful and quiet and also private. I did not have to worry about how I looked in a swimsuit because no one else was around! Sitting in the hot tub under the stars on a peaceful evening, looking at the water of the Pamlico Sound was heavenly! So was cooling off in the pool during the day! There was a big yard for my dogs to run around in. Nice deck with lounge chairs to sit and read or relax or just chat. The water from the sound was shallow and fun to just wade around in or go clam digging! That was interesting! This place is definitely secluded and private and so peaceful! Indoors has wifi, and DirecTV as well as games. Felt very homey with magazines and books to read, fully furnished kitchen - bath even has a shower massage! The master bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up! Waking up looking at the sunrise over the water without even getting out of bed was so luxurious! Even the weather was perfect! This would be a great place for families with young children or a romantic get away. I couldn't believe the owners don't charge extra for pets or for linens or even cleaning! They are amazing! This is the perfect place to just get away from all the stress and business of everyday life and work. The pool and hot tub are cleaned daily and the suite is immaculet! Even the grounds are gorgeous with so many flowers! Steve was so very gracious in answering any question I had, and I had lots! He didn't even mind me calling asking for directions when I got lost! He is such a gracious host! I can't wait to go back again! It has everything I could ever want in a relaxing vacation getaway! I'd give them 7 stars if I could!"

  • Loved Emerald Isle!

    "This was our first visit to Emerald Isle and we enjoyed it immensely! The house was great--loved its location, beautiful views, brand new deck and walkway to the beach and shower for rinsing sandy feet and chairs. spacious living room for the 8 of us and kitchen had plenty to offer in terms of pots and pans, flatware. We like to eat out and found there were plenty of options. We went to Crab Shack, El Zarape and Flipperz and enjoyed all. We also drove into Swansboro one morning to Phillips Seafood for fresh shrimp to steam. They were fantastic!! Doesn't get any fresher!! Couple of housekeeping items- There were only about 5 or 6 bowls (ie. for cereal). Don't know if they've been broken over time and no one's mentioned it until now, but more are needed. The head board in the master bedroom is very squeaky and woke me repeatedly at night. Maybe I'm just a light sleeper, but it was disruptive. There is one beach chair that is on its last leg. I neglected to report it to your property manager. All in all, we loved every minute! The weather and water were amazing!! We would definitely return to Screaming Eagle."
