Emerald Isle, NC – Best Home Rentals

posted in: Travel 0

I love Emerald Isle. We have been heading to this amazing destination for years. My kids love the large beaches and playing in the waves, it's a wonderful place.

Every time we go, we always rent a house. We meet up with family and share a space and really enjoy each others company.

Renting a house can be a little intimidating for some, but it's so common these days, it's almost like renting a hotel room. The huge plus is the ability to rent a gorgeous house for around the same price as a hotel.

Below I have a list of homes that I would recommend based on the amenities and location. For each home I have the nightly price for rental (based on the first week in June 2020.) Then, in the little charts, I break down how much the house comes out to per room. This lets you know that the huge price tags some rental homes come with, are really a bargain. For example, the first house is rented for $950 a night. Sounds pricey right, but when you look at the cost per room of only $119, that's a steal! I also wanted to give you an idea of how much the house would be to rent if you had a couple families (or more) splitting the cost. So for the first house, maybe you have 3 families going in on a house together, the cost per family would be $317 per night. It's like getting an ocean front suite or villa at a hotel (which could cost well over $1,000), for a fraction of the price.

So, with that, I hope you enjoy reviewing the homes below!

This 4 bedroom house is located at the southern point of the island as well. It's a 2nd row house, but offers great views and easy access to the beach. The house was recently rebuilt in 2014 and even has an elevator. With two living areas and large decks, the house is perfect for a large family or a multi-family trip.

House 7

This 4 bedroom is a perfect value option at the point. Being a second row house, you're set back from the water, but you still have the great beach access and some views. The house is beautiful and would be double the cost if right on the beach.

This 3 bedroom is more towards the interior of The Point neighborhood. It's a couple blocks from the beach, but still a quick 5 minute walk to the water. The house, at $288/night, is an ideal option for budget friendly renters.
