The view was awesome, all the large windows and the covered top front porch. But, I just wanted to let you know that half of the kitchen/dining rooms chairs were broken. Whether it be a leg, arm or other.

Great views right on the beach. Daughter and grandson enjoyed the pool. A problem with bathroom on 2nd floor but did not disrupt vacation. Overall a 5. Plan to rent next year.

We love the location of this property, the floor plan, and ocean deck space.

Perfect house for us on the east end of Emerald Isle. Mom and my two small senior dogs appreciated the elevator (so did I loading/unloading luggage). View and deep porches are amazing; love the inverted floor plan. Watched sunrise and sunset from the upper deck. Kitchen is very well stocked. We visited off season, so the pool wasn't a factor for us. If a pool is important to you, be aware that 'quaint' means single depth and only slightly larger than a hot tub. Love Bluewater's service - and sincerely appreciate their help fixing our elevator user errors. We look forward to returning to this property!

The house was fantastic! Kitchen was fully furnished with everything you would need. The ocean was at our back door with easy access to the beach. The elevator was perfect for my 85 year old father in-law. Perfect for our family.

The Makes Sense house had great porches and views of the beach and ocean. The few steps to the beach was great for the grandparents that came with us. They also loved the elevator. The upstairs had plenty of seating for eating and plenty of couches for watching TV together.

Beautiful comfortable home. Situated perfectly on the beach and the views are amazing. Close to grocery dining and fun on the island.

This ocean front property was perfect for our family of 3 and 2 dogs. Wonderful views, a great layout, and thoroughly cleaned upon are check-in. A short 10 minute drive to town and only a block to the hike and bike trail. We hope to stay here again!

We need a place that had more than on oceanfront bedroom and an elevator was a must for my sister in law. This place is beautiful

This was our third vacation on Emerald Isle, but our first in Makes Sense. It was the perfect choice for three generations! We enjoyed the large bedrooms, well-stocked kitchen, open living and dining space, and covered decks. The elevator simplified moving in and out. Our little ones had a wonderful time playing in the pool. I already miss the early morning walks on the beach admiring the sunrise and an evening cup of coffee on the deck listening to the waves. We really like Emerald Isle beaches and Bluewater could not be more accommodating!

Location - view was fantastic, out the door access to the beach, number of bedrooms, linens included. Well stocked kitchen. Elevator was great for unpacking and packing the cars. Balconies all had chairs and provided much needed shaded areas and a get place to enjoy the view and unwind after a day at the beach.

Makes Sense is an amazing property that was perfect for our family. The top deck gives unbeatable views! The layout of the home is great. For the caliber of the home a nice grill is definitely needed (on the top deck off the kitchen would be ideal). The elevator was a nice plus! Looking forward to our return!

Makes Sense is a beautiful home! The views from the deck are amazing! It was my 77 year old mothers favorite spot. We loved the fact that we could walk down and be right out on the beach in seconds! My mother had a wonderful time surf fishing. The elevator makes this house perfect. And, the fact that we could bring our beloved fur baby was amazing! Be careful in the upstairs shower because the shower floor can be slippery! We had beautiful weather the majority of the week. My family loves Emerald Isle and I can promise you will will return!

The home was beautiful. We just wished the pool would have been a little bigger.

This home was in great condition and perfect for our 3 adult children and ourselves. I love that the light switches were labeled. The pool is very small so it's not good for group swims. Everything worked well and it was very comfortable. One door lock was broken but the door was easily locked using other means. I'm sure it is being repaired. Great spot to watch the waves and dolphin jump!

We loved 'Makes Sense'. The views from the porch are beautiful. Having the elevator was great as my wife's 85 year old parents were with us. We would definitely rent this house again.

Makes Sense has amazing views from the decks and stands out among all the houses in the area. The kitchen had everything needed to cook meals every night. The charcoal grill was a little small but was sufficient. Having two small children and being steps from the beach really made this vacation one to remember. I would definitely rent this house in the future.

Gary S
The only 2 complaints with this home was the size of the pool(too small)and the finished concrete surface adjacent to the pool was extremely slippery when wet(dangerous especially for small kids). Also the upstairs could use blinds on the windows. Everything else about the house was perfect. We had a wonderful family vacation and would definitely rent it again.

This home is beautifully equipped with most everything you might need during your stay. We found it to be clean and bright, and in very good condition. The views of the ocean from this home are simply stellar - some of the best we've ever encountered in our 26 years of visiting Emerald Isle. We will definitely be back to this property!!

Sure is a million dollar view. Proximity to the beach with short private boardwalk is terrific. The great room living area is really comfortable. Our party of 7 adults and 2 dogs had plenty of room. The kitchen is very well equipped. The appliances are first rate. The big dining room table works out very well even though it is showing signs of wear and tear. Bedrooms are ample. Matters are awful! Two in our party ended up with sore backs. Waaaay too soft. Our first visit to the Crystal Coast. We unanimously recommend it.

Great home, but a little pricey. Kitchen needs to be more equipped for large groups, and house keeping needs to do a better job. For almost 9k I expected to not have to clean for 2 hours when we arrived. Over all nice house, and I would stay there again.

The oceanfront covered deck is the crowning jewel of this home. The overall condition of the home is very well taken care of. This is my 4th year renting this home. Me and my family now call this our beach house.

The house is wonderful and the icing on the cake is the oceanfront porch. I enjoyed sitting on the porch anytime day or night listening to the ocean and escaping the rat race.

The beach house 'Makes Sense' is truly beautiful. No corners were cut when this home was built and decorated. Every detail is top notch. The ocean front porch is icing on the cake. I would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a beautiful ocean front home to rent.

Loved staying at 'Makes Sense.' It is a beautiful location, right on the ocean. The home is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Just wish our vacay wasn't cut short by the hurricane.

Make Sense was a beautiful home to spend a week's vacation in. We caught fish everyday for dinner, which in my husband's eyes, adds value to any home 🙂 We couldn't figure out how to play the TV in stereo, but other than that - there was no overly complicated electronics in the home, as so many of the new ones have!! A nice upgrade would be a heater for the pool - as it's in the shade most of the day....and wear shoes to the beach, the dark deck boards will burn your feet on the way up! Overall - this was the best house we've ever stayed in at EI.

Emerald Isle is beautiful and the Makes Sense beach house is located right on the beach. It was tastefully decorated. It was higher priced than most of the homes, but is was worth the expense. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
