About Tony Howell

We call Henderson NC home but I grew up in Raleigh NC and graduated from Broughton High school. We have three kids. One in college and one in middle school and one in preK.

Tony Howell purchased this house in 2014

Why Tony Howell chose Coastal North Carolina

My wife and I grew up vacationing in Emerald Isle and Atlantic beach. We purchased this home after 17 years of marriage. We love Emerald Isle and look forward to making memories here! The location is close to restaurants and shopping and in a very nice upscale neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Ride your golf cart or bike through the neighborhood or to the pool and ride your bike on the bike trail through the island.

Surf and sun bathe right out the front door.

Wine and dine at local seafood restaurants.

Awesome Oceanfront Home in Spinnakers Reach

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a number of different homes in Emerald Isle and this was certainly one of the best (Spinnakers Reach is one of the nicest neighborhoods on the island). The house was clean, well maintained and the kitchen was nicely stocked. The beds were extremely comfortable and the leather reclining sectional in the living room was a big hit. I saw an earlier post complaining about the towels, but we found them to be very nice. The ocean views were awesome and the downstairs area with the pool table and big screen TV got a lot of use. There was also a large gas grill but we didn't use it.

Tony was a pleasure to deal with- very accessible and helpful. His daughter rents bikes and I would definitely recommend using her-- very convenient and the bikes were in great condition.

The property description is extremely accurate- everything was as good or better than described. I would not hesitate to rent this property again!

Finally, for those of you with a sweet tooth, try the fudge at Elly's in Emerald Plantation. You won't be disappointed.

Nice but could be excellent with a few improvements.

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Tony, was helpful and available if needed. The home was nice but a few kitchen items were broken ( two toasters, electric skillet) Use of the pool table was one of the things we were most excited about, but not one cue was usable. ( broken tips). Tony was made aware and assured these things would be corrected ASAP, but sadly, it was too late for our vacation.

Beds were comfy and I appreciated sheets and towels were included. We will consider renting again next summer. The price was a bit steep, but there were many good things about the house... So will consider it again for sure.

Delightful vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful week at your home. It's a nicely updated duplex with superb access to the beach! It was obvious upon arrival that it has been a busy summer with renters and there were some maintenance issues but with your fast response to our list this didn't effect our stay whatsoever. Thank you for your quick response and resolve. The addition of more seating on deck for outdoor dining and lounging was especially appreciated! One suggestion would be to add a blender for frozen cocktails as well as some type of umbrella or awning on the deck for some additional protection from the sun. Also we thought the linens from your rental company were substandard, so I would suggest changing linen companies, other than that we had a great stay, Thanks again.

LOVE this house & location!

  • 5 of 5

One of our best beach vacations yet! This home was light & bright, open layout, clean, nicely decorated and best of all, right on the beach! With 10 in our group, there was plenty of room for all and the wraparound sofa/recliners were super comfortable. Everything was accurately depicted online, but the pictures can't capture the sun-filled ocean views and great use of space in the open kitchen, den and staircase. Nice kitchen with all you need to cook for groups, and plenty of seating.

The community pool is only a minute walk away. It's nice and clean, plenty of chairs, and we had it all to ourselves. I never saw it busy the whole week.

The beach here is great for running, walking, swimming and just relaxing. Even though our stay was Fourth of July week, the beach never got too crowded. We took a few day trips which I highly recommend. We rented a pontoon boat for the day through Emerald Isle Adventures and cruised the Intracoastal Waterway, stopping at small islands, exploring, shelling, floating. The owners of the boat, Roy & Lisa, gave us lots of good information and it's obvious they love their jobs. Lots of fun! We also took a day trip to Fort Macon and Beaufort, learned a lot and enjoyed a great meal in Beaufort at Clawson's.

Tony quickly responded to emails and a call and was on top of things; great service. I would definitely rent this house again. This was our first trip to Emerald Isle; we normally vacation in the Outer Banks. Even though it was about an hour longer drive (coming from Richmond, VA) it was a much nicer drive with no congestion. Bonus: very close to Food Lion for groceries. We will definitely be back!

Very nice!!!

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed, beautiful home! Right on the beach. Kitchen has a large island (granite countertops) that makes serving a breeze. Seating area in living room spacious and comfortable. Bunk room on first floor is awesome- will sleep 7 (two doubles, two singles). Three upstairs bedrooms are very nicely appointed and very comfortable. Have to say that I didn't realize the home is a duplex- not quite as roomy as I had expected, but price point extremely reasonable. Overall a wonderful experience!!!

Wonderful Location For Family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a family vacation. My family and I rented this location with my brother and his family. We usually stay in Topsail but decided this year to try a new location. Well it was a success, Emerald Isle is beautiful. My new favorite place. This rental could not have been more perfect for 5 children under 7 years old. At first we did not realize is was a duplex, but it did not matter. the condo is fully furnished and equipped with everything you need. Clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds, plenty of TV's, wi-fi, and a large kitchen island and table, perfect for the children. Linens and towels are provided, but if it rains the day you check in, they hide them ;) Being beach front was amazing. we spent everyday on the beach, and it was just a walk. We had morning coffee on the deck and watched the sun rise. bottom floor was amazing -- huge area with a pool table and big screen TV. There is a grill as well but we didn't use it. Pool is the community but did not use it.

One draw back is the middle floor had small ants, just around the couches. I believe that owner knows and it taking care of them.

Lastly, the owner is more than helpful. before booking i spent 20 minutes on the phone with his chatting about his home and Emerald Isle. He was correct, it is beautiful and has changed my mind completely. And if there was any problem he was there. Has an issue with linens and he was just a phone call away. Thank you for a wonderful stay, and we sure will be contacting you next year to book.
