We had another fantastic trip to Emerald Isle and enjoyed every minute we spent there. Coming from Texas the East Coast beaches are absolutely beautiful and being able to look out from this house onto that scene of blue ocean every morning just never ever gets old. Giant windows, decks on every level and direct access to the sand and surf on a private walkway makes all the difference in this beach house versus a non beachfront house. We carried tent, chairs, and towels a few yards every day and a easy walk back to eat or bathroom or a refreshing outdoor shower (my family's favorite feature). So you really can't beat the beachfront location and the homeowners have made a home and by home I mean comfortable and welcoming. It is very clean and completely equipped with everything you could possibly need and if they don't have it you can find it nearby. While they do have all the tech you need in a vacation home with plenty of TV's and such, the emphasis here is on the absolute beauty of the ocean right outside your door. The sound of the waves and feel of the ocean breezes is what brings us back and keeps us remembering it til we go again. This house is perfect for families or couples and sits in the best part of Emerald Isle just down the road (a pleasant walk) to shopping, grocery, restaurants, bike rentals, and the movies. It's a small beach town feel in the area around the house and we love it. Our teenage boys rode bikes, took themselves to the Dairy Queen and shopped the surf shop and down to the big fishing pier which is a fun trip all by itself. We drove out to Beaufort and took the ferry out to Shackelford Banks and the Lighthouse and saw wild horses on the banks and dolphins in the water along the way. I highly recommend this day trip and also a walk through the very old streets of Beaufort.
Very large, spacious, beautiful home with a beautiful view. Clean and had very nice bed linens and towels. Home was stocked with about anything you would need. Owner was very pleasant and easy to communicate with. I would recommend this rental to anyone and I would come back. There are lots of steps, if that would be an issue to you.
