"Our fifth stay at NWZE in 3 years tells you that there's really no place we'd rather be. Our last two trips, May 2016 and Oct. 2015, we missed seeing migrating humpback whales by one week! Bogue Inlet Pier posted pictures of them swimming in front of NWZE. Well now I can cross one thing off my bucket list because this trip we saw them twice within 1000' of the house!
The weather in late November was warm enough to wade into the water to surf cast, and fishing was good. We enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. During our stay we enjoyed the Swansboro Christmas Floatilla, the Emerald Isle Christmas Parade, and Christmas shopping in EI and in Beaufort. Oh, and our Thanksgiving turkey never tasted better. No surprise there, because everything is better at the beach!
This beach house is our happy place! Even if it was our own, we wouldn't change a thing about it, inside or out. We love the location and the friendliness of the EI community. The owner, Jackie, is kind and gracious, and works hard to insure our vacation is perfect. For these, and all the other reasons I've posted about our previous stays, we are once again counting down the days until we can come back to NWZE."

"Our family of four had the pleasure of staying at Big Bertha this past week, and it was all we could have hoped for.
The home is clean and well-appointed, spacious, and has amazing views of the beautiful Emerald Isle beaches. The main living space is just wonderful...huge windows all around making you feel as if you are a part of the beach even while cooking or just relaxing on the couch. Speaking of cooking, the kitchen is well planned with plenty of counter space (gorgeous granite!), a flat top stove and plenty of top notch countertop appliances.
The bedrooms are clean and cozy, beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. Roomy decks on both living levels lead you right out to the most gorgeous beaches around...not to mention the roomy hot tub right off the master suite. Bring your sheets and towels, and what food your family needs, and you are set for a great vacation.
We enjoyed the use of the beach chairs, umbrellas, and even the boogie boards that are provided. We also made plenty of use of the Weber charcoal grill. As a mom, I appreciated that there is a separate washer and dryer for each side of the duplex...that isn't always the case in a duplex rental.
Everything was just amazing. We couldn't have asked for more. Debbie is terrific to work with, kind and friendly, and even called the afternoon of our arrival to be sure everything was just right for us. We cannot wait to come back to Emerald Isle and we fully plan to stay at Big Bertha the next time we do. If you are looking for a great and affordable family getaway, this is your place. Perfect family vacation!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Screaming Eagle. The view from the deck and close proximity to the water was perfect. The home is well furnished and comfortable. The location is great as this end of the island is quiet and secluded . . . and we were just a short distance away from groceries and restaurants. We've stayed at numerous beach homes over the years and feel Screaming Eagle is one we would definetely return to. Thank you for a great weekend!"
