About the property

Oceanfront living just doesn't get any better than this. The beach is right outside your door. Walkway straight from your deck, to the white sandy beach. There is always a nice summer breeze that keeps you comfortable when having fun in the sun. We have beach umbrellas, boogie boards, noodles, pails and shovels to keep you busy if you want to be active. A Bocci set and/or a frisbie if you want to take it up a notch. Others like relaxing on the deck, sitting in the 'rockers' under the shade of the overhang and watching the pelicans fly by or see the dolphins hanging out. During turtle season, you may even see a loggerhead. Enjoy a fully stocked kitchen. We even have complimentary k-cups, Hot Chocolate and cider to get you by until you make your grocery run. Do you like to grill at the beach? We have a gas grill all ready for your world famous burgers. We have board games, card games and books to satisfy the kid in anybody. Pirate stories, lighthouse books, shells and more, Direct Tv throughout!

Of course we are dog friendly so we have the pooch covered too. Dog bowl, toys, and need we say more, a good supply of doggie pick up bags.

Inside when you retire for the evening, the Master welcomes you with a brand new June 2016 queen pillow top mattress and it's own bath. The other bedrooms have brand new 2016 queen and 2 doubles. So we have sleeping arrangements that you need to make Papa Bear, Mama Bear, and the other bears happy. Truly a story book setting, but you supply the story line and ending. Sunrises are beautiful and sunsets are breathtaking...Enjoy!

About Barry Gurney

Northern transplants living the dream at the beautiful sandy coast of North Carolina. My wife and I fell in love with Emerald Isle the first time we visited here in 1992. After that it was only a matter of time before we moved. We brought our children up here in such a friendly and wonderful place it's hard to imagine ever living anywhere else. We could not be more blessed.

Why Barry Gurney chose Central Coast

There are many properties available in all sizes, and prices. But this, feels just like home. Everyone who stays says the same thing. It is so relaxing and lovely, 'it feels like home' and it does! Check our reviews!

What makes this cottage unique

New for 2016 composite decking, new dishwasher, wood flooring in bedrooms. Direct TV, 2 flat screen and brand new pillow top mattresses...Our furnishings are very nice and we make everything just like we would like. We have traveled to many places and stayed in many a hotel. condo etc. We believe that our experiences have helped us make the home just what we thought all of our vacations stays should have been like.

Best vacation rental - home away from hone

  • 5 of 5

Barry has been, and continues to be THE best rental owner! We found the Seahorse on VRBOs site several years ago and Barry allowed us to stop and view the property while visiting in the Carolinas. We've been coming back every year since..,perfect sized house right on the beach, beautifully kept, well stocked and even pet friendly if you have a dog...all the amenities you need, and more...I promise you won't be disappointed (and won't want to leave)!!

Seahorse East

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation at Seahorse East. We counted..50 steps to the beach from the deck. Mr. Gurney was in touch with me and made check in so easy. The house had everything we needed. I am definitely going back next year.

Lovely cottage - wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location and the ease of this home! We had a wonderful week at the beach - everything you can ever want - umbrella, chairs, toys, boards - were all provided. In addition, unlike other homes, having just a limited amount of stairs was super helpful for my older father, who has a hard time with them. The furnishings are comfortable, and supported our family of 5 very easily. We look forward to coming back again!

Beautiful view, great location, comfortable and clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at the Seahorse East cottage. As two families of four (four adults and four young children), we found the cottage to be very comfortable, clean, and cozy. The views are amazing from inside the house as well as on the deck. Being able to spill across the bridge onto the beach was very convenient as well. It was our first time on Emerald Isle, and we were happy to find that most everything we wanted was less than a 30-minute drive away, making it a great location to explore the Crystal Coast. We hope to be back some day.

Beautiful beach home with the ocean right outside your door

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Seahorse East. This is our second stay at this home and it was just as nice the 2nd time as the first. The home was clean and has well kept furnishings. The new mattress in the master bedroom was great. Loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the deck watching the surf. It had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation.
