"Surf Husker... Home Away From Home"
We have a large family that reunites one week a year in Emerald Isle, NC, and it is truly like a week in paradise. For 33 years we have traveled to Emerald Isle from Virginia and Georgia and have spent the last 12 years at the Surf Husker... our home away from home. The Surf Husker is a beautiful waterfront six bedroom cottage that is always clean and well maintained, The homeowners are so personable, accommodating, and friendly while making our stay feel like home away from home. This cottage has a beautiful wrap around porch which we literally live on during our time on the island. We have quality family time while enjoying the ocean, nature, meteor showers, and beaches with a multitude of dragonflies and butterflies consuming the sand dunes. We play games, laugh, cry, eat, read and reminisce over past years while making new memories. Five generations later we look forward to our annual trip to the Surf Husker... our home away from home. It is my family's most favorite week of the year....!!

This house was okay. We liked the big deck and outdoor shower and the fact that it was right on the beach. The bathrooms and kitchen could use some updating. The downstairs bedrooms do not have access from inside the house so not for families with young children but it worked for our teenaged grandchildren.
Thank you for your review of your stay at Surf Husker. I agree that the large deck of this property is an attractive feature, and I am glad that you enjoyed it. This property does have a unique layout as the downstairs bedrooms have a separate entrance, making it ideal for a group such as yours with older children as well as multi-family groups who want a little added privacy. I am pleased to know that it worked well for you, and I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle again soon.

"spectacular view......beware of garage doors"
The extended family found Surf Husker perfect for our needs. The wrap around porch and spectacular view of ocean, plus closeness to ocean was wonderful. Although small, the kitchen was wonderfully appointed. The addition of a second refrigerator in the garage/basement really came in handy. The bathrooms need updating. The double garage doors were a nightmare. There was instructions on how to open and close the double garage doors. Even with following these instructions, I badly smashed my middle and ring finger between the panels of the garage. Luckily, someone was nearby and hear the cries for help. Ten days after the incident, my finger nails are still purple and the tips of both are sore. I was extremely lucky not to loose the nails . The garage doors need to be fixed or removed. As they are now they are very dangerous, and would not recommend parking in garage until fixed. Given the expense of the rental included linens (very clean), I feel the beds should have been made and not left for the renters to make. Other than the garage, we had a wonderful time. The location was wonderful and the extended family had a wonderful time.

We had a great time uninterrupted with great weather. Looking forward to next year.Every thing was as advertised. As we are getting to have a hard time with the steps getting our keys early is a great help Thanks to your cleaning crew.
