This house is perfect for my large extended family. A beach access is directly across the street and it is very close to the two grocery stores in Emerald Isle. There are areas of the house for our whole group to be together and enough rooms for those times when we need a break from the chaos.

I could write 3000 words about how terrific Beach Blessings is. We had 10 adults, 8 kids (four under 2.5) and found Beach Blessings had EVERYTHING. The smallest room(s) could fit a Pack 'n Play on each side of the queen bed. As of June 2022, the outdoor closets were overflowing with good condition beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys, pool floats, even some golf clubs and a full-size surfboard. We brought board games (kid and adult), and the house already had almost all of them amongst the ~50 games spanning two huge cabinets. Super convenient to the beach, bike path, grocery store and everything else. Volleyball court was in great shape, no sand burs for us. The only caveat for families is that the 4 full bathrooms on the middle level only have showers, no tubs.

We love the spaciousness of the home and that you can enjoy an entire week under one roof with your whole family. Sitting on the top deck and swimming in the pool are two of our favorite things to do. One week is never enough.

I loved everything about Beach Blessing, it has lots of dishes, pots and pans, coffee pots, the waffle maker, forks, spoons, knives, the icemaker, I loved!! Every bedroom was huge, the living and kitchen was very spacious, it has two tables in the kitchen so everyone can eat at the same time. the whole family loved the game room, playing pool, or playing foosball, are just watching TV. The swimming pool and the hot tub was another BIG succeed with the family, even though the water was cold, we still played in the pool, and then got in the hot tub. Our family vacation time at Beach Blessing was a HUGE SUCCEEDED. Thanks Bluewater for all your help, we wouldn't have had a successful vacation without your help. Betty Boggs

We have stayed in many different places over the past 18 years and the house has defiantly thought about the diversity of large families. Thank for the little things like step stools in the bathrooms and kitchens for the little ones. We appreciate the nicely stocked kitchen that actually meets the needs of a group staying in a house this size. Great collection of books, kids toys and games. Love the easy to read and follow directions for working the tv's in the bedrooms. Wonderful - we loved our week!

This house was fabulous. Best stocked house yet. Lots of games, puzzles and books. Kitchen was amazing. I want to take the ice machine home. The living room/dining room/kitchen set up was great fro family togetherness. Elevator was important as one family member is recuperating from a broken ankle. We are truly blessed. Thanks!

This is our 4th or 5th time staying at this house. We LOVE the set-up and all the amenities. You literally have everything! Our family enjoyed watching the sunsets together each night. We truly hope to continue this tradition year after year.

We had a family reunion and the house fit our four families perfectly. The Oceanside bedrooms were great, the pool was perfect, the view of the beach and ocean from the porch was nice because the house sat up high, location was near shops and grocery store, large lot avoided feeling crowded, lots of good parking for our 6 cars, well equipped for cooking and eating with everything we needed, and linen service with beds made on arrival was a nice amenity. Great week for us.

The home is spacious and fits our family of 18 perfectly. The kids have plenty of games to occupy their time. They thoroughly enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub. It just a short walk over to the beach, We had a great time. We plan on booking it again.

We love the roominess and all the amenities this house supplied! Loved it being pet friendly! Our 14 year old lab slept most of the time but was with her family. She loved going on top deck and barking when other dogs walked by! Almost all my friends who joined us want to come back here with their families!

Flying Kites, riding inflatable dinosaurs, shredding on our surfboards, afternoon cocktails, hot tub chats and even more delicious dinners. Great memories made - we vow to return next year! Thank you Beach Blessings - you've once again been fabulous. We love Emerald Isle!

The house is perfect for a large multi-aged group. Arranged architecturally perfectly for our group and equipped to the extreme. We all enjoyed the decks with the view and sound of the ocean without being directly on the beach. The pool was a nice size and having large parking areas was a plus. The decor with all the extra electronics was very nicely done.

The house was really great overall. We had a large group and everyone was very pleased with the house. The pool and hot tub were really great for the large group, and we used the volleyball court a lot. We'll definitely be back next year. Things we loved: The kitchen was really awesome, we love to cook and we cooked 3 meals every day all week. We brought a lot of things from home because rental kitchens are usually poorly equipped, but this one had almost everything we brought. We appreciated the crock pot and the built in water filter the most. The two dining room tables were great for games and puzzles when we weren't using them for dining. And the living room was super comfortable too - that couch! That's the stuff dreams are made of. The mattresses in the king/queen beds were remarkably comfortable. The beach access right across the street made it feel like we were oceanfront, and you can see the ocean from the kitchen/dining room/deck upstairs. The double fridges were super awesome, we fit all our food for the week and didn't have to make multiple trips to the store. Two dishwashers were super helpful too, we never had dirty dishes sitting around waiting. There are even two ice machines. Really, this house has everything. Note! The coffee makers (there are 2!) take cone filters. A few things that could be improved: (1) The wifi was a bit spotty - sometimes it worked well, and sometimes no one could connect at all. (2) The volleyball court was a big reason we booked this house. The court had sand spurs growing in the sand (like the plants were growing in the court), so we pulled those out, but there were lots of spurs remaining in the sand. There were also some small/hard to see cacti. The sprinkler head in the middle of the volleyball court is pretty hazardous, and it compacts the sand every time the sprinkler comes on. Adding more sand would be a great idea. We really love the idea of the court, but we nicknamed our sport 'Hazardball.' It didn't stop us playing, but you know, it was a little tougher than usual. Management Update: Sprinkler head in volleyball court has been removed. New landscaper for property as of 2020.

We truly enjoyed our stay here for the 2nd year in a row. Y'all have thought of everything (all details accounted for). Your home is inviting and makes our family vacation so relaxing. We genuinely hope to continue returning year after year. Thank you again for everything and for a great vacation spot.

Spectacular house. It had everything we could ever imagine needing - like umbrella and chairs for the beach and a lot of beach toys as well as a fully equipped kitchen. The house was very comfortable and had enough space so that no one ever felt cramped. Loved it! Wish we could go back every year. I'd stay there again without any hesitation!

Many memories were made at this beautiful home. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. Spacious and charming. Beware of sand spurs taking over the yard. Ouch!

Great location with quick access to grocery store and essentials. Not a bad walk to beach to be across the street. Lot's of eating room for the family to sit down at one time. My daughter is an avid volleyballer and was looking forward to playing on the court in back yard, however the grass had these thorny things that put the Nix on her using the court, be a great addition to convert to sand to play in on the court. Our whole family really liked the house and layout, there were 16 of total plus the two dogs. Really enjoyed the drive through check in/check out service this year! In previous times this wasn't practiced at the other locations, hopefully all locations are using this concept, it was so EASY and FAST!

Plenty of beds made sleeping arrangements easy and comfortable. Since several of us enjoy reading, lamps at both ends of the sofa would be helpful. Perhaps footstools to prop up feet would be more comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped, but a crock pot/slow cooker would be helpful. Had to repair towel bar in ground floor bath. It is still loose. Overall a very nice house with good view of ocean. Would definitely recommend.

Beach Blessings had the best floor plan for our extended family of 8 adults and 10 children ranging in age from 3-11. All of the adult couples had an ocean view and deck access from their bedroom and the multi bunk bed accommodations for the children couldn't have worked out better. The kitchen facilities were amazing with two refrigerators and dishwashers! We were able to keep plenty of food and drinks on hand which made it possible to limit our trips to the grocery and clean-up was a snap! Although located second row, it felt like oceanfront with the beach access directly across the street. The children greatly appreciated the many pool and beach toys/equipment provided, especially the baby pool and boogie boards!
