“Beautiful beach house!”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We loved this home in Emerald Isle, NC and will book again in the future. This house is beautifully decorated and really felt like a home away from home. The home is second row but there is still a view of the ocean from the several deck areas all of which have outdoor seating. It is just a few steps from the dunes access to the beach which is ideal. There is an outdoor shower with both hot and cold water. The kitchen, living room and dining room are wonderful especially if multiple families vacation together. There is a fully private downstairs BR and full BA next to the laundry room and game room. The Master BR and BA were fabulous (and I'm jealous and wish my home was equipped this way)! In the Master BR, there is a washer and dryer and I cannot tell you how convenient that was. The only thing missing was a coffee grinder, which we bought locally and left behind in the house. The home is located about 5 miles from the center of town but this I think is an advantage as it is quieter. The owners really thought of everything down to the little things and it is obvious! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful views and accommodations. Felt right at home in this cozy sandcastle.

Highly recommend booking a stay at Tucked Away.

Management Response
2 Dec 2015
We are so sorry your vacation was not what you had hoped for at Tucked Away. This is the first year this house has been rented and we are working with the owners on kitchen needs for our guests. We were not informed about the porch swing until you let us know, and the owners are mortified as this is one of their favorite spots on the deck, with a beautiful ocean view. A new Polywood swing has been ordered. The owners were told the AC units should last several more years, but have decided to replace both of them this fall. The construction is a concern, the house directly across the street was started in last November and should have been completed by your stay - we are not sure what is delaying the progress. Regarding the repairs and replacement of the glass top, we apologize for these inconveniences. The guest prior to you had broken the glass and it needed to be replaced and the leak was a backup from the downstairs AC unit that had to be cleared for the unit to operate. At Emerald Isle Realty your vacation experience is important to us and we want to continue to earn your business.

“View No Longer Unobstructed”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a beautiful beach house, but the photos do need to be updated to reflect a house under construction directly across the street, immediately beside the beach access. There is still a view, as 2 adjacent lots beside the construction site are still vacant, but it is no longer unobstructed and could continue to change if building takes place on those lots. Regardless, this is a beautifully furnished house, with a wonderful layout for a family with teenage and older children. There are beds for 2 on the first floor with the game room, which still has a view of the beach; 2 bedrooms on the main floor, off the stairwell/hallway by the kitchen; and a master bedroom plus another bedroom on the top floor. There was enough room for everyone to have privacy, yet plenty of gathering space for us all to eat together in the dining room or watch movies in the family room.

I would absolutely rent this beach house again. There were 4 couples who shared this home and everyone loved it.
