About Alison Ford

My family is local to North Carolina and we have vacationed at Emerald Isle for many years now. We purchased this beach home in April 2015 with my parents and have enjoyed decorating the home. We have 2 children. We enjoy family bike rides on the island, surf fishing, boating, and relaxing on the beach. With the family being so busy between work, kids playing sports, etc, Emerald Isle is the perfect retreat.

Why Alison Ford chose Coastal North Carolina

My entire family enjoys visiting Emerald Isle and we have vacationed there for as long as I can remember. we have been looking for a place that was perfect for us. It took quite some time before we found the perfect place, but we finally did! There is just something about being able to sit on the front porch and see the ocean while you hear the waves crashing. We are happy to call this our home away from home!

What makes this townhome unique

We fell in love with this home immediately! The ocean is right there, when you are standing or sitting in the living area/kitchen area you see the beautiful view. It always feels like you are at the beach, and we love that.

Keeps getting better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this beach house and I have to say, it only got better! The outdoor shower has been beautifully redone. It's spacious and feels so clean for an outdoor shower. We decided to come back this year and I'm so glad we did, the beach wasn't crowded, there were plenty of chairs and umbrellas for us to use. The house was clean and it felt like no one had ever spent the night there. I can't recommend this place enough, it's steps from the beach, clean, spacious and the Alison is extremely nice and accommodating even at last minute. We can't wait to come back next year!

You can't go wrong with this house!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, one of the nicest houses we've rented in the many years we've been going to the beaches! It was bright, fresh and clean, and felt brand new. My kids enjoy cooking so the well stocked roomy kitchen was a plus. Plenty of beach chairs and the cart made it so much easier to get things to the beach. Even though we didn't have small children, the paved area underneath the house is large enough for kids to play or use riding toys on rainy days. The two decks were nice and we sat out at night to watch the meteor showers. This is a quiet, family-oriented area of Emerald Isle which made for a restful and relaxing visit.

This was our first experience with VRBO and could not have been better. The owner was prompt, polite and helpful. We had no issues with the house, but my feeling is she would have responded and taken care of things in a timely manner.

Every few years, we visit other beaches but always return to Emerald Isle. Its our favorite beach and a trip to the aquarium, Fort Macon, Morehead City and the Beaufort waterfront stay on our list of to-dos, along with a visit to the Big Oak drive in and Happycakes in Morehead City!

My family agreed that we want to return!

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Normally it takes me a while to get over the fact that so many people have sat on the couches or slept in the beds at beach rentals but this house did not have that feel at all! So clean and beautifully redone. Felt like I was the first one to visit! The homeowner obviously put a lot of thought and effort into making this the perfect beach getaway. Also was the first house that was generous with their beach chairs and toys - the beach cart was the best! Owner was very helpful in accommodating our dates and answering any questions. Gorgeous views, gorgeous beach and gorgeous weather - typical for Emerald Isle!

A great house and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. Very clean and had everything we needed. Very convenient location, directly across the street from the beach access. This was helpful, as we had our 3 year old granddaughter with us. The beach was not crowded at all. And the view from the deck! Just beautiful! The owner was very easy to work with. We are definitely going to rent this house again. Thanks for a lovely vacation.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Once again our family was very happy with this VRBO! Our 2nd time visiting this property and a great description to describe this VRBO is truly a "home away from home." The house is not a house, it's a home with anything and everything you would need. Clean, nice decor and updated flooring, paint, etc....Quick walk to the beach 2-3 minutes and all the beach items you may need are provided (saves on packing room in the car). The owners are wonderful and friendly to deal with in terms of booking and answering any questions. Looking for a great get away or a week at the beach? This place is IDEAL and our family would highly recommend it! Thanks to the owners for making it such an easy process! We look forward to our next trip!
