Perfect Spot

  • 4 of 5

You can't ask for a better location. Sitting high above the other houses looking out over the ocean, mid way point of the island, and all the amenities you can ask for. One of the better rentals we have had down there. Repeat customer for sure!!

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

A great experience for me and my adult son. House sits high, great covered front porch with view of the waves, great breezes and constant sound of the surf. Easy beach access so we made numerous trips alone and together all day long. The porch was the feature we appreciated the most. There are hooks for a hammock. We brought one along and took turns sleeping in it. The gated porch was much appreciated by my son's old dog and made our trip much easier. We ate out only once, cooked and grilled at the house and went out for supplies a few times. The house is a bit older, classic beach cottage with great natural light and is invitingly comfortable. Entertainment amenities are more than sufficient, though we used them sparingly because siting on the porch was so relaxing. Not even rain is a problem. It's actually perfect for enjoying the rain while staying perfectly dry. Be sure to bring linens, towels, kitchen towels etc, as the listing advises. The kitchen has utensils to meet most cooking needs. This place was perfect for the two of us and the dog. One word of caution, as I said the house is high on a hill and the trip to and from the beach involves about 40 steps each way, so if you have a problem with stairs keep that in mind. However, we didn't mind the steps at all. Provided good exercise and there is an outdoor shower area along the lower steps where you can keep beach chairs, etc without carrying them all the way to the top each day. This property is a great choice whether you want to use it as a home base and explore the area and attractions or whether you just want to do what we did -- enjoy the beach 24 hours a day. Thank you to the Outrims!!

An Emerald Isle Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Zanzibar. The house is well kept and equipped, with a very convenient location. Steps to beach, close to both Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach shopping/activities.

As others have mentioned, the gated, covered porch offers a wonderful place to relax. We were very pleasantly surprised with the great ocean views from many parts of the house, including the deck, kitchen, dining room and front bedroom.

We've rented a number of beach houses in Emerald Isle over the years, and this one is easily our favorite yet. Location, quality, value and incredibly responsive owners. Mark and Sharyn were on top of everything (our arrival coincided with a tropical storm), accommodating, flexible and kind.

If you're looking for a great place to stay while you enjoy Emerald Isle, look no further!

Great covered deck with view and convenient to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Zanzibar! House was comfortable with everything needed for a week at the beach. So glad to share this space with our dog and we all loved sitting under the wide covered deck, taking in the view and listening to the ocean across the street. The outside space is perfect for dogs and kids with secure, gated access. We found nice places to eat in both Swansboro and Beaufort that allowed our dog in their outside, covered spaces. The walking/bike path behind the house was great for dog walking, especially since our dog is scared of the water roar on the beach.

House owner was very accommodating and responsive. She went out of her way to provide a nicely compiled list of favorites in the area. Thanks, Sharyn, for sharing your dog-friendly home with us. Looking forward to next year already!
