Clean up after your pet
Leave it clean as you found it, any linens that have been used should be placed in the laundry basket (located in the half bath)
Please make sure the garbage has been taken out to the large recepticle behind the house before you leave, bugs are a real problem at the beach.
Great place! The location was excellent - within walking distance/biking distance of everything we wanted to do. And most importantly close to the beach :)
Walking distance with a sidewalk to the beach made it super easy to get to the beach and back. This was my first airbnb experience but it went exceptionally well. The house was just as described. It was a much more relaxing at the beach staying in a house versus a hotel.
This was my second stay at the property. Bobbi was great to work with. Very quick response and even worked with me on a last minute date change the first time we stayed at her place.
The location was great and the accommodations were comfortable. The site manager was friendly and very responsive as well as helpful. The beach was clean and had a family friendly crowd.
We loved our trip to Emerald Isle and our stay at Bobbi's house. We were a very short walk to the pier and beach, and made several trips back and forth daily. The accommodations suited us well for what we needed. Our dogs Toby and Bogey loved that they got to come on vacation with us as well since this home was pet friendly. We look forward to visiting EI again and would be happy to stay at Bobbi's home again.
Bobbi's house was great. The location was perfect and the beach is closer than you think. Bobbi was great with communication and even sent us a link to Emerald Isle's summer music for the time we were there. The house sleeps 5 but I think the futon in the living room needs to be replaced in order to count it as a place to sleep. Her maintenance man Richard was very helpful as well.

About the Host, Bobbi
I am section Hiking the Appalachian Trail and have also started biking the ECG. I have 2 medium to large rescue dogs (to keep each other company when I work long hours), the second was an OOPS when I started Forstering for the Atlanta Dog Squad (they rescue retrievers). I am especially fond of White animals.
My favorite state is NorthCarolina but I also love Florida (and I am a Gator as well as a Tar Heel. I worked at DUKE as a RN in their Cardiothoracic Unit for 10 years). My son was born at Duke the morning after UNC won the NCAA Basketball Tourney.
I like to road trip and travel to the South/Eastern Carribean. I also have a camp in the Adirondacks (NY). My family vacationed there my whole life and my Mom manages it for me now that she has retired there.
I'm kind of a Gypsy Spirit!
