About Marian Hunt

Our family began vacationing at "The Point" in Emerald Isle in 2000. We fell in love with the natural beauty and warm, clear ocean water of the island. While vacationing in 2001 we happened to notice the 'for sale' sign on an oceanfront cottage, and the rest is history! We were so fortunate to be able to buy Sea Hunt and make one of our lifelong dreams come true. Even though Sea Hunt needed alot of TLC we knew what a great house it could be. We hope your family and friends will enjoy our cottage as much as we do.

Marian Hunt purchased this house in 2001

Wonderful location at the point. Rockers on the deck great for reading or just relaxing watching the beach sights. Kitchen is fully equipped with anything you will need. Loved walking on the beach to check on the turtle nest this year.

We loved Sea Hunt and highly recommend it as a perfect vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Hunt for a week in early September and absolutely Loved the place. Boasting a boho-beachy décor, this well-cleaned and meticulously- maintained home came provided with everything we could possibly need or want. In fact, we had such a wonderful time, we never even ventured out for dinner, so we could just bask in the glory of the beach, the phenomenal sunsets, and unbelievable sun-shining rainbows that graced us almost daily. This vacation was a last-minute whim and we are so happy with whims now, we hope to make this place an annual tradition. The only thing I would do differently, is to take along some cushions for the wood-slatted, Adirondack-inspired chairs or my newly-purchased zero gravity chair to take the pressure off my back for any lengthy deck sitting.

Balanced honest review

  • 3 of 5

Good: The location at the point is amazing. Views are incredible and amount of space on the beach is fantastic. The outdoor deck is great includes ample seating and shade. The kitchen is outfitted nicely with all the necessary cooking utensils. Utensils are in good shape as well. All of the rooms are a decent size and furniture is in good shape. Good parking and house is located back off the street in nice neighborhood. Located close to any activity and good bike/running trails.

Bad: The upstairs where two of the rooms are located is very musty. The smell is noticeable soon as you come through the front door and is really bad in the upstairs bed rooms. At times it was uncomfortable to be up in that space and we generally avoided it except for sleeping, but sleeping in it was challenging. It was unfortunate that the house had this issue because otherwise this is a nice house in Emerald Isle. This last issue is minor, but the grates in the bar-b-que need to be replaced as they are accumulating rust.

Owner's Response: Dear Espen, I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation at Sea Hunt. I was unaware of problems with the upstairs bedroom. I have contacted the property manager for help in dealing with the situation. Apparently, there was a roof leak during some heavy storms. This will be taken care of and the bedroom remodeled before the next rental season. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The grill was replaced last season. Unfortunately, the salt air reeks havoc on anything metal. I will look into this issue and replace the needed parts. I will post pictures of the upgrades on the VRBO site when they are completed. Regards, Marian

Great location with beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Sea Hunt. It's an older home that needs a few updates, but the location, views, and beach access far outweigh anything else. The downstairs has a nice open floor plan for the kitchen and living area. Bedrooms were spacious and provided sufficient room for adults and children. We really enjoyed spending time on the lower deck (shaded) and the deck off the upper bedroom. Our first experience with beach front rental and we were not disappointed.

We have rented this house several times..what we like best is the location..right off the bridge and out of traffic...the house is comfortable but not overly fancy..I don't have to worry too much about us ruining something ...however, we do have a problem with the parking...I have three daughters with husbands or boyfriends and is able to drive together due to work schedules....we also have a.boat with us which creates such an issue...I feel that the overgrown vegetation should be trimmed back and more parking provided. Having to.pulll cars in and out gets to be such a problem...the rocks that are to keep parking off grass just limits more .....we may have to rent elsewhere as my family is growing....we the point and being near the inlet ...we enjoyed as stay as usual! !!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Sea Hunt. I'm sorry that you do not find parking adequate. The rocks are placed along the driveway to prevent people from parking on the septic system/drain field. We do hope to trim back some of the vegetation in the fall. I hope I have addressed all your concerns and you will return again next year. Regards, Marian

Perfect Location, well appointed, absolutely wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Sea Hunt had everything we needed, from grill utensils to place settings to linens to bath towels. We spent most of our time on the decks and on the beach. The sunset view from the upper deck is spectacular. The hammock was a great napping place for me and my 1 year old. The location was perfect - If we were 6 houses further west we'd have been much farther from the water, 6 houses further east and the beach was more crowded. There were great tidal pools for the little ones and a sunset walk around the point was easily doable.

Sea Hunt will definitely be at the top of our list for any future beach vacation and I've already recommended it to friends and family.
