We have stayed at this house every year since it has been built. We love this house. It is so nice to be right on the beach. Has everything you need except beach towel and beach toys. The owner is also a great guy. Emerald Isle Realty was very helpful and professional. The house is clean and lots of space. Would highly recommend this house. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is the fact that you have to drive to Emerald Isle to get the keys and drop them off. It is a 30 minute drive each way. Would be much easier if you could use the code on the door of the house.
