"Our stay at Wait N' Sea was fabulous! We have stayed in Emerald Isle two times previously, and this stay was the best by far. We only rent beach-front places when visiting any ocean, but Melissa's property was our best fit yet. We loved the layout. We loved that the rooms were very spacious. We loved that the kitchen, dining and family rooms blended into one another for social gathering purposes. Also, that you can easily retreat to the privacy of the bedrooms. Two of the rooms upstairs have balcony access, which is great for sitting with a birds eye view of the beach and ocean drinking a nice cup of coffee. The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you could need for producing a fabulous fresh catch dinner or clam bake. The family room is comfortable and has plenty of gadgets for the kids.The decks are clearly recently installed and very well done and solid. We especially appreciate that the decor is a little more modern and doesn't just vomit "beachy" every where you look like most places. The outdoor shower is a nice surprise and strangely fun to use.The laundry facilities are excellent and I feel that the quality of the machines are far and away above most rental properties. The storage room which has toys and umbrellas and all sorts of stuff that had I known were there would have saved me tons of space in my truck! ;) The two grills were nice as well, we utilized the gas grill to facilitate our clam bake, which I suggest to anyone with a group coming to Emerald Isle. Just bring your own big stock pots. There are services that will bring you rental bikes, fishing charters, jet ski rentals, whale watching or whatever you want nearby.
The best thing for us, which has nothing directly to do with this rental unit, was getting so lucky as to witness Loggerhead turtles being born and making their way to the ocean. We had such a nice experience with this for us and our children. Luckily, the nest was about 30-40 feet from our beach access. We were able to keep a direct eye on all the happenings from our porches and head out to see the action. We just loved our vacation and would undoubtedly rent from Melissa again in the future. Thanks Melissa!
