Guestbook comments from the owner

If I could bottle the entire week I would. From watching a beautiful sunset to waking up on the deck outside the master bedroom it couldn't have been better. The kids loved the pool and I liked being able to enjoy watching them and the ocean at the same time. Location couldn't be more convenient. I would highly recommend Dune Boys and would definitely return.

Dune Boys-A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 plus two fur baby pups just returned from a 2 week vacation at Dune Boys. This was our first time vacationing in Emerald Isle and little did we know we'd feel so at home within days of our stay. Dune Boys, Shannon and Brian are wonderful. The property was clean and had a cottage beach vibe that even our picky 15 year old loved and appreciated! The endless views from both decks were breathtaking and provided us with instant relaxation everyday. We saw dolphins almost every morning from our decks, which ignited pure excitement out of our 3 little kiddos! Dune Boys provided our family with everything we needed from kitchen amenities, bedding, and furniture arrangements. We were able to have our first low country boil using all pots provided by Dune Boys. We purchased our fresh seafood for the boil from Captain Willis's just down the road. This feast was enjoyed on the picnic table on the deck, so we truly felt like we were dining on the beach!!! We've traveled as far as Cape Cod and down to the Gulf of Mexico. We've stayed in some extravagant houses; yet Dune Boys snipped a piece of our hearts and is now a favorite! We will return next year without a doubt and have trust that Shannon and Brian will be just as accommodating. : ) You simply can't beat the oceanfront property with a pool, which was serviced twice a week for cleanliness! Although we did not experience one bad meal, our favorite restaurants included The Trading Post, Riverside in Swansboro, and The Spouter Inn in Beaufort. The Village Market was delicious for lunch and K9's and coffee was a welcoming treat for our fur babies! Next summer can't get here soon enough! Thank you Dune Boys for delivering a memorable vacation to our family of 6!!!

Perfect family vacation spot. Oceanfront Duplex conveniently located to Bogue Sound

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Dune Boys East from May 27- June 3rd. It was the best beach vacation we have ever experienced. The duplex is conveniently located about a block and a half from Bogue Sound. We took paddleboards and had an awesome time raking clams, fishing and paddling around the Sound. The duplex was super clean and well appointed. It is also oceanfront with a nice pool. Shannon and Brian were wonderful. They were always available for any questions we had and very professional regarding the rental agreement. Our party of seven, 5 adults and 2 children, had plenty of space. Other than trips to the Sound, the Aquarium, and a couple of grocery store runs, we never left Dune Boys - because it was so comfortable and nice! One family member commented that it was so close to the dunes and the ocean that it looked like a movie set. We plan to return next year, probably for two weeks. One week just wasn't long enough!

Wonderful views for dolphin watching!

  • 5 of 5

Dune Boys East provided a relaxing, fun girlfriend getaway. The house was immaculate, well provisioned and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for gatherings with friends. The master bedroom and main decks provided amazing views of the beach, dolphins and shrimp boats. It was great to be able to include the dogs on our vacation. Oh my, what fun they had! The location is convenient to restaurants and shopping, yet very private and quiet. We will definitely be returning!

Perfect week of vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Dune Boys West! This was our first time to Emerald Isle but definitely not the last! The house was perfect and actually larger than expected. The house is also closer to the beach than expected as well! Just a few steps off of the walkway and you are there which made it so easy to run back and forth if we forgot something. The beach is nice and quiet yet still active. Not all commercialized like other beaches in NC. Had everything we needed for a great week at the beach! Shannon and Brian were great and made the rental process simple!
