"My family and I were lucky enough to stay at this property for a week and to say that the home was exceptional is an understatement.
The owner, Chris, was a pleasure from the beginning. His response time was quick and he was always available to answer any questions that we had. Our trip was a bittersweet one in that my mother is battling terminal brain cancer - the owners could not have been more understanding and sympathetic of our situation.
Prior to our arrival, Chris gave me all of the information that I needed to be able to check in without any incident. They literally thought of everything that a guest might need to know right down to how to work the remote controls.
Not only is the home large and extremely beautiful with views that are out of this world, it was also the most well equipped vacation home that I've ever stayed in. I'm not exaggerating when I say there was nothing that we needed that wasn't there. The kitchen was as well stocked, if not more so, than your kitchen at home. From crab crackers, to a cupcake pan to a KitchenAid mixer, to a mini food processor, they had it all. We spent most of the week inside the home and did most of our cooking there simply because it was difficult for our family to go out given my mother's condition. The fact that this property had all of the comforts of home was exactly what we needed.
I particularly loved the layout of the home. The upstairs master suites and the media room were a wonderful getaway for the adults. At the same time, the ground floor bedrooms with the bunkbeds and bedroom with two doubles and Jack and Jill bathroom were just perfect for the children. The main level of the home was also phenomenal. I loved that there were two bedrooms on this floor and that my mom was able to stay in one of them and be able to access the main level of the home in her wheelchair. It was so nice that she could go to the living room, kitchen, and the front porch without having to be carried up and down any sets of stairs.
We also loved the front porch, as well as the small decks attached to the master suites. The rockers were a nice touch. The hot tub was also a hit with everyone and was exceptionally nice on the cool, spring nights.
My only disappointment with this property is that we didn't find it sooner. I give it five stars plus ...if you're looking for the perfect home for your family on Emerald Isle, this is the one!"
