Pretty Good

  • 3 of 5

The basement room has a VERY strong odor of mildew even with the dehumidifier running (no one was able to sleep down there). The water is very hard and makes washing your hair very difficult (like you can't get your fingers thru). Very cute property and the golf cart was very nice to have. The beach is beautiful and the gated community was very pleasant.

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed this home and setting. Location is perfect; very quiet, lovely neighborhood, wooded, quick & easy walk to beach. Loved the porch even on hot days. Sitting by the fire pit, listening to frogs and crickets, felt like we were in the mountains. Great little park with elevated trail to bay just down the street. House is decorated nicely. Wasn't sure about the futon beds but they were really comfortable.

We had a lovely and truly relaxing visit to Emerald Isle. The house is comfortable and cozy. We loved the screen porch in the morning for coffee and reading. The wildlife outside is a fantastic, herons, egrets, turtles, and the frogs can really get going at night! The golf cart is a great way to get to the beach, and fun to drive! Very quiet, peaceful and out of the way of everything, including the neighbors (who were kind enough to let our kids play on the basketball hoop!).

Great relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family's few days on Emerald Isle. We have two young children, so the golf cart was perfect for getting all our gear to the beach. The location of the house was so quiet and peaceful! House was well furnished, loved having a washer and dryer to keep up with laundry! The only downside was that the room above the living area had shutters that opened to the living room, so we couldn't use that bed for our daughters because it would be too noisy with the tv on. So our girls had to share a room, but they didn't mind! We would definitely stay here again!

Quick beach weekend

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we were generally satisfied with our stay. A total of 5 people stayed- 4 adults, 1 toddler. I should have paid more attention to what a previous reviewer had stated about the upstairs bedroom with shutters. If you are in that room, you can hear EVERYTHING going on downstairs. I had to re-adjusted my toddler's sleeping arrangement because of this. We ended up putting him in the guest bedroom while my husband and I slept in the shutter room on the futon. It worked okay but less than ideal. The owner was gracious enough to let us into the property slightly earlier than check in which was great! However, I wonder if the cleaning was rushed. When we arrived, I noticed some sticky-ness on the dining table, floors didn't really look like they had been mopped and one of the showers needed to be rinsed of cleaning residue. The house suited our needs- it was in a good location on the island, quiet, and it was nicely surrounded by nature. I loved the side porch though I feel the outside furniture could definitely use some updating. When I sat on some of the pieces I felt as though they might break. The house is slightly further from the beach than I was expecting. There would have been no way we could have walked with our toddler so we definitely took advantage of the golf cart-- so happy to have that! And my boy loved riding on it. The beach access was for residents only which was nice. We did see deer and turtles while we were out which was fun. The kitchen was decently stocked and even had some basics- oil, salt/pepper, sugar. The owner was very responsive to all my questions which was appreciated. Overall we had a good beach weekend. As many others have stated- it was nice to find a place that could be booked for less than 1 week at a time.

Wonderful weekend getaway with "flexible" sleeping arrangements

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of young professionals who rented this house for a wedding weekend at Emerald Isle. This house suited us perfectly--especially since the variety of sleeping arrangements allowed a few of our friends (who only stopped by for short one-night stays) to crash at our place without any imposition at all! Sherri was great and the house was well-kept.
