This home was absolutely perfect. It was so exciting to see that exact picture as we drove down the street to it. The furniture was comfortable, the location was perfect, and kitchen was one of the best stocked and most organized that I have ever seen. The owner is exceptional. Very interested and concerned with our comfort and safety. We would love to return as there is so much to see and do. We are closer to the Gulf and this was our first trip to the Outer Banks area. Thank you, Terry, for a wonderful experience.

1st trip to Emerald Isle

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your house! Everything was very clean and very well appointed. The short walk to the shoreline from the back deck was nice too.

The house is beautiful and accomdated 8 teens and 2 adults comfortably. Amazing ocean views

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and comfortable. The pictures are good but don't compare to actually being there. This is my first experience with home away having only done hotels in the past. If most of the homes compare to the experience we had at are we there yet I can't imagine ever going back to a hotel. It's worth the stay just for the ocean views alone. We actually saw dolphins just sitting on the deck for morning coffee. The kitchen is very modern and comfortably sat everyone for meals. All the beds are comfortable. Although we didn't spend a lot of time inside it was nice to have a tv in every room and access to wifi. The island is very peaceful and non-commercialized. We didn't have one problem during our stay but if we had needed anything I know it would've been taken care of. Terry is very easy to work with and she made me feel like I had a new friend. We are already planning our return to "our new house" Ladies only this time. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. If i could give it 10 stars I would.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review. Our home's proximity to the ocean really does make dolphin watching a treat!!! Looking forward to having you and your girlfriends return. Loved our conversations, friend!!!

Car: necessary

Emerald Isle is a beautiful, peaceful island on the Crystal Coast (Southern Outer Banks region) of North Carolina. The coastline is pristine and from the deck you can take in the local wildlife; dolphins riding the waves, pelicans flying, even sea turtles making their way to the ocean after hatching. If you choose to venture out onto the island, there are plenty of activities to suit every need. The Bogue Island Pier is a short walk away for fishing, from which you can see surfers and kayakers dotting the ocean. The island has extensive bike trails (and bike rentals) for exploring and exercise. Mini-golf, go-cart racing and the water park are all family fun activities. Movies and gift shopping are close by for a more relaxed night out. The island boasts plenty of eateries, 3 golf courses and an aquarium; a short drive away is Historic Beaufort, where you can tour the historic homes of Front Street, visit the North Carolina Maritime Museum, or see the wild horses on Shackleford Banks.
