This home is lovely, with understated decor, plenty of space (we stayed with 10 people, ages 2 years to 75 years, and everyone was comfortable), and a separate "teenagers" suite on the ground floor. It's well equipped and in a very nice part of the island, with plenty of high dune shrubs to afford privacy and quiet. It has nice big windows and a nice long deck overlooking the beach, with plenty of deck chairs. One minor downside was that all the kitchen cabinets are full to the brim with equipment, leaving no space to put away food. Stairs to the main part of the house are steep -- not good for someone who has difficulty with stairs -- and there is very limited space for parking.
Thank you for your review of your stay at Mate's Ketch and for pointing out the need for guest accessible storage in the kitchen. Recently, the owners of this home converted the owner's closet in the dining room to a pantry so when you arrive for your next vacation you will find ample storage for food and other cooking and kitchen supplies. Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to your next vacation with us.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to round up the kids and grand kids, but we managed it for a week at the beach. Mate's Ketch is a great house for a multi-generational group. We had beautiful weather the second week of June and spent all of our time outdoors swimming, sunning, flying kites.

"WE HAD A RELAXING WEEK!"
Stayed here before, just perfect for my mother, sister and I. One comes from Cincinnati,oh the other from Naples, FL and we have a great time!! Great spot on the beach, that's why we came back.

"GOOD VALUE; EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR A HAPPY TIME."
Well stocked and organized house w/nice beachfront. Kitchen was well-equipped, though so well so there was no available cabinet space. Variety of games, puzzles and videos was appreciated. Some folks might want updated audio equipment, though vintage cassette/CD/radios were adequate for us. 4-bed downstairs suite w/fridge/microwave/TV adds versatility. Dishwasher soap dispenser broken.

"A GREAT WEEK WITH FAMILY"
Our family of four generations enjoyed our stay at Mate's Ketch. Sitting on the top porch in the morning and enjoying a quiet breakfast looking out on the beach was quite peaceful! The weather was great, a little windy at the end of the week. There was enough room so that many small group conversations could be had, but we also appreciated being able to all eat together in the same room for dinner. The location was perfectly located between the bigger commercial areas of Emerald Isle and atlantic Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, uncluttered, wide beachfront!

"GREAT WEEK WITH THE FAMILY."
Once a year our family plans a trip to the Ocean and recently we have started coming to Emerald Isle which is nicer than our previous OBX destination with no extra trip time from Ohio. Mate's Ketch (the house)was a great house for 3 families with 4 grandchildren. The house is very clean with access to the beautiful and clean beach. The house was just the right size.
I'm happy to hear that Mate's Ketch was a good fit for your family's vacation this year. We enjoyed hosting your family's stay in Emerald Isle and look forward to planning your next visit. Please call us to book your same time, same place for next year - 1-888-832-0140.

We enjoyed our stay. Very roomy and the boys enjoyed the privacy of their own space downstairs. So did we. We would have liked to have had a covering over the rear deck such as we had at the prior rental.
Thank you for your review. I'm pleased to know that the layout of Mate's Ketch worked well for your family and you had an enjoyable stay. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

Mate's Ketch was the perfect house for us! The main level accommodated our family beautifully - nicely furnished - kitchen was great for meals in/on the go. The bedrooms were comfortable and welcoming. The lower level has a separate entrance and was spacious and comfortable as well - perfect for our teenage boys. The location was spectacular...just feet from the sand and waves. Emerald Isle Realty does a fantastic job - the home was perfect and the beach was gorgeous. We loved our trip!
