Excellent! Great location! Plenty of linens. Enjoyed the outside shower. Plenty of beds for our large family. Some beds had hard mattresses. Enjoyed the large table on the great deck. Would prefer more comfortable seating in the living room. We would certainly rent this house again.
A Wonderful Family Place at Emerald Isle
We found the Conrad's beach house a year ago during our family trip to Emerald Isle staying a block over. We were looking for a bigger place with a better beach access and this place had it all! David and Kim were wonderful to book with and I was pleased to see so many updates made since we booked the year before. The house was newly painted and clean. We had plenty of towels and sheets for all beds, the pull out couches, and the trundle. We used all the sleeping options and found them comfortable and adequate for our large family group. We really appreciated the pack and play and high chair for our little one too! The house is great for families that want to spend lots of time together in shared spaces as well as families that like to hide away to nap and relax - our family did both and the house made it easy. We would have loved another couch in the living room upstairs (there was only one). We had a large group and hard chairs aren't for everyone. We enjoyed the outside dining tables and chairs on both the downstairs and upstairs decks and spent lots of time out there. We found everything we needed in the kitchen upstairs (we cooked all meals except one for the week) and loved having the extra kitchen and fridge downstairs for beach snacks and drinks - a real bonus for us! The driveway was very large and fit 5 SUVs and a truck easily! The very best thing about this house though is the location! The beach access is directly across the street and was the easiest access we have ever used (even for our older family members). We were there on the 4th of July and the beach was not nearly as crowded as we thought it would be. All other days, our stretch of beach was only dotted with a few other families enjoying the beautiful weather. The house was close to shopping, restaurants, and 2 grocery stores. We will definitely be booking the Conrad's place again at Emerald Isle!

We loved the home. It is stunning with great views. Plenty of space for many people. We Definitely hope to come back next year. The owners were great and very efficient.
4 generation family vacation
Great location. Walking distance to the Sweet Spot! Great outside decks. Dining area seats 8 comfortably and two outside dining tables. Very kid friendly. Only downsides are lack of window coverings on downstairs sitting area that doubles as a sleeping area and not enough seating in great room for our large group.
We had two issues-
We did not have sheets for either couch. We contacted owners but never received sheets due to housekeeper being at wedding. Did not make for great sleeping- . Also, the main TV would not work-we spent 1 hour Friday and then 1hour sat trying to make it work. Finally called owner and he said we could move box from tv downstairs. Still would not work-ended up calling in to Spectrum and they spent time helping us. Come to find out that TV was not even hooked up. We had service on tv for last day.
Sorry about the TV as there has been a lot of renovations going on with the second floor where the TV was located. The furniture and TV were completely moved out of the room for repainting of the walls and ceilings. Seems the repairman missed hooking it back up correctly in haste that morning of your arrival. As far as the linen service I apologize and that has been rectified as we now have a new linen service covering the house. Please contact us in the future for another weekend get away to the beach and we will take care of you.
Steps from the Beach
Our stay was a brief one--- check in Friday afternoon, check out 10am Sunday. 5/17-5/19. My family was in town for a family event.. We were 10 adults and 3 children. The area and location of the house is beautiful with attractive grounds.Very convenient town and literally steps to the ocean. We had a nice time, but we had some disappointments that tainted our stay. The downstairs, entry level had very limited lighting, musty smell and a kitchen area that was old and appeared to need maintenance.
The downstairs bedroom and full bath were clean and neat. The main level was a good size for a large group. The kitchen was clean and very adequate for our needs. The bedrooms were good sizes. The online site stated sleeps 14. we used the 4 bedrooms -- the one had a full bed and a twin with a trundle which we were able to squeeze our 3 small children in, and the pull out queen sofa in the living room. If we were all adults ,wewould have had difficulty sleeping comfortably. The entry level sleeper sofa we were not going to use. It was old and musty with no linens on it. The site also said linens and towels provided. After our booking, and closer to our arrival, I emailed the owner to check if we were indeed getting linens and towels. We were then told we had to pay a fee for the service for our brief period. We had no choice but to pay .Our rental was for 12 adults, and we only got 9 sets of towels!! The bed linens were supposed to be put on the beds, and the trundle had no sheets along with either of the queen size sofa beds--no sheets for them either. We couldn't get the cable to work on the main TV, we called Dave, but he didn't respond.
A very inconvenient and disappointing problem was the so-called outdoor shower !! We found its existence only to realize that it was used as a dirty, old storage area. So after our beautiful day at the beach ,we had to all attempt to rinse off with a small garden hose on a poorly maintained back deck area that one of our party got their foot cut on protruding nails. I would recommend that the next renters confirm the accuracy of the listing site .There was limited hand soap for the kitchen and the bathrooms, limited toilet paper, and no tissues so remember to shop first.
the bedroom and bathroom downstair was cle
Sorry for any issue you may have encountered but let me address a few. The house is being totally renovated from the hurricane and most of the work has been completed. The week before you arrived the entire interior of the house was repainted as well as new skim coating and paint to all the ceilings. You may have mistaken new paint smell for something else. The sofa downstairs was delivered a month before from a local furniture store and is brand new. As far as linens, they are provided for weekly rentals but for shorter stays it is an option,. I also returned the phone call and left a message. Checking with the cable company it was a bad connection on the box, which is something I couldn't get Time Warner/Spectrum out to address immediately. Shampoo, soap, toilet paper and paper towels are the responsibility of the guest and are not furnished. Once again we are sorry for any inconvenience you experienced and ask you return for another weekend later in the year!
