A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little home was the perfect place for my husband and I and our two young daughters to rest, relax and enjoy the beach. The beautiful beach view from the back deck was our favorite aspect of the house. The house is just a short walk over a quiet, small road to the beach. So nice!

Our stay

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable seating and great view of the ocean.

Only one tv worked and fridge had very strong vinegar smell but over all very nice stay.

Great trip to the Emerald Isle

  • 4 of 5

We went with friends who rented a separate home through a company and had a much different experience than we did. Our home was comfortable, clean and in close proximity to the beach. Our son loved it so much he cried when we had to leave. We will definitely be staying at Delia's again.

This rental was just perfect! We stayed here with my small grand daughters and son. The location was just perfect. There is an easy beach access just across the street. The house was clean and the kitchen was stocked with anything we might need in meal preparation. One thing I really liked was that the house looked and felt like a beach house instead of a sterile environment. It was very nice having beach chairs available so that we did not have to pack them. The owner was very pleasant and easy to work with. She was available to answer any questions. I have every intention of returning here.

Beautiful home, beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Emerald Isle and it was great. Delia has a beautiful home and it really felt like our own little beach cottage. It is decorated nicely and has all the little knick knacks you might need. We were greeted with extra little snacks and goodies and a cute card. The outdoor showers and hose are great and with the beach so close we could pop right in the house for whatever we needed throughout the day.

Delia was very helpful with all the restaurant suggestions in the area. There are some closer options but most of the variety is near Atlantic Beach/Morehead or on the other side of the island near Cateret. But do your research-the best reviewed places really are the best to eat at. Our favorite was Riverside steak and seafood!

Overall, it was a great trip and the house could easily accommodate two couples or a family with kids. Lots of space and TV and the internet access was great.

We would definitely book again!

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect solution for our family. We had everything we needed. Took us 1.5 minutes to walk to the beach. Liked the openness of the common areas.
