Bedroom #2The second bedroom has a Double bed with a Double/Twin Bunk Set that was custom-designed and created by the Home Owner. It is a fantastic! The bed hangs from jute-wrapped bars attached to a large wooden fish on the ceiling, with fish embeded into the gorgeous woods, and carved wooden legs. This room is decorated in warm tones, and Butterscotch walls, with tropical accents on the walls and bedcoverings. There is also private access to the wrap-around Deck and Ocean views. The shared bath off the hallway is bright and sunny with Coral walls, colorful ceramic fish lining the main wall and is accentuated with white tiles and copper fixtures.


You'll pass a splendid wooden mermaid on the way to Level Two, via the tropical bamboo-slat staircase. Bedroom #3 is just past the Laundry Room and is the "Tiki Room," a bedroom with beach-style written all over it, from the surfboard-themed custom-made quilt on the Double bed and curtains, to the Hawaiian Tikis and Kukui Nut necklace, and other tropical decorations. It also has a Private Bath. Bedroom #4 is the Master Bedroom. The Master bedroom has beautiful custom-built King head and foot boards designed and crafted by the Home Owner.

The Master bathroom is open and light with amazing aqua blue, emerald green and white-flecked tiles throughout. The shower has a Rain-style shower head and is completely open, giving a very "spa-feel" to it. Bedroom #5 The next Master bedroom also has a King bed, covered in a charming, pink tropical bedding. The quilt is even more lovely surrounded by Bubblegum pink walls and soft accents throughout the room. In the center of the room is a delightful "church-peak" ceiling, with oak beams and fantastic lighting, and gives the room an ethereal quality. The windows are large and cover the walls, on the Oceanfront side, allowing for incredible Oceanfront views. If you want even better views there is a private door to the spacious Deck. The private bath beautifully accented with deep Coral floor tiles, has a Garden-style, Jacuzzi bathtub, dual-head shower with seating and a Vanity. Directly next door is Bedroom #6 , another Master bedroom with a King bed covered by a custom quilt created by Mrs. Home Owner. The quilt is layers of bright and summery colors, with turtles swimming through the Ocean. The walls are in a complimentary Mint green and the windows are angled allowing for panoramic Ocean views. The adjacent, private bathroom is decorated in aquas and blues and has a Jacuzzi bathtub, with seating inside of the shower, lovely tiny, pearlescent tiles on the lavatory and an aqua lavatory sink and silver fixtures throughout.


Take the ladder or the Elevator from Level Two to the Observation Room on Level Three and enter a seagoing vessel, complete with portholes into the Steam Bath, with Gold-Plated Fixtures, and the over-sized Full Bath, with a Rain-style shower head. The wooden treatments throughout this home, one such being the door going to the Steam Room, were designed and created by the Home Owner. These special treatments incorporated into this already fantastic home will make your stay here even more satisfying. In this Room, there is ample seating be it on the suede, cobalt blue couch or at the diner-esque hand-carved wooden benches and table. With the large deck outside, and a small Refrigerator this area is a great place for a cozy gathering of friends and family.


On Level Four, the private Observation Deck has the highest known vantage point from any private home on the Island!

perfect layout. downstairs 2 bedrooms w/shared bath was separated by a door from the rest of the house so very private.So many entrances from outside to a bathroom. Even downstairs. lots of room to spread out for our family of 10. kitchen well stocked and large pantry for storage. Nice large dining table for 10. ping pong table in garage, game room and theater room all well used.Another fridge and small bar downstairs also. Nice laundry room on floor with bedrooms.HE washer. elevator convenient and needed to get to top level. the stairs are really just a ladder.Very nice pool although not much shade except early am and late afternoon. lots of boogie boards, beach chairs and sand toys provided.no umbrellas but they can be rented. This house is fantastic. Two suggestions for other renters - rent bikes from Hwy 58 bikes (pedego58.com). they will deliver and pick up for free. Lowes Foods in Carteret will deliver. order online and choose your pick up time. 4-7pm is good for the first day. It is great to not have to shop on day 1. Bluewater Realty even provided notary and copy service for free

Great location and overall a well-designed layout for large groups. We had a child with severe nut and egg allergies and had no problems with any cross-contamination or residual contact, which means cleaning was thorough between renters.Second level bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms are roomy. Everyone enjoyed the pool tables and ping-pong table in the basement and the loft area was a useful 'getaway' during the day (sofa bed in loft could use replacing). Watching fireworks from the deck and observation desk was great! The pool was nice when the waves were choppy and as a break from sand and surf. The outdoor showers were helpful in getting rid of sand and rinsing off before getting in the pool or going inside. Deck entrances to all bedrooms (and the basement and loft) enabled us to go straight to individual rooms without going through other areas of the house.The large cook top and griddle were nice amenities. Having labels for where to find and replace kitchen items was very helpful and appreciated! Eating space was good for all 17 of us.A few things to keep in mind: 1.The second dishwasher is a small one in the basement, so it really isn't a true second dishwasher. 2.The bunk bed in the basement is out in the main room, just inside the door to the basement area, sized for kids (teens and taller kids might not fit well), and not adjacent to the half bath. If you want to use the movie room, you will go past the bunk, and through the room, possibly disturbing anyone who might be sleeping there. 3.The two bedrooms (one with a double and a bunk bed, one with a queen bed) that share a bath on the main level are small and have small closet areas, but they are located where noise is not a great factor if others want to stay up later. 4. The main washer and dryer on the second level are a large capacity,pretty new (washer takes high efficiency detergent), and work very well. 5. The elevator is especially useful to transport children to the loft and observation desk, thus eliminating any danger in using the ladder.

Seaforever is a beautiful and spacious home. Our party of 12 (8 adults and 4 children) were very comfortable both in the house and in the pool. Additionally, it is situated on a quiet and scenic part of the beach. We would highly recommend this home and hope to stay there again!

The location of Seaforever is very convenient to the Food Lion and arrival and leaving, missing much of the traffic. The pool design was great for our 2 and 4 year old beginning swimmers. The quirky design and decorations were special. We appreciated getting all 14 of us around the big table for meals. Overall it I was a great week.

We loved the original feeling in this home. It did not look and feel like a hotel or even a typical beach house. There was plenty of space for all 16 of us, even when we wanted our separate spaces. Although we had beautiful weather, there was plenty to do indoors. We would definitely stay here again!

The house was very spacious. Very cool layout. Plenty to do. We had 8 adults and 9 grandkids and we had plenty of room. We cooked all of our meals which saved a ton of money. It was right on the beach with great views and a short walk to the water. The pool was adequate and allowed for a nice alternative to the surf. Short walk to the fishing pier.

We've stayed in over a dozen homes on Emerald Isle over the last couple of decades. This one was top notch, the best or close to it. Hot tub is the only thing missing.

This was the third time we have stayed at the SeaForever and it has become of our favorite homes to rent. From watching the sunsets from the top of the crows nest, to the quiet solitude the upper room affords, to sitting by the nice big windows and watching the sunrise while sipping on coffee. Its a place where all our family and friends can come and still get away from each other when we want to.

Location was great. Weather was perfect. Loved every aspect of cottage. Elevator used to unload and reload belongings but used stairs rest of time. Had 8 adults, 2 teenagers and 4 children from 3 to 9. Had something for everyone. Household of good cooks, so kitchen was a huge selling point! Used the grill, gas range and wall oven every meal. POOL WAS ESPECIALLY CLEAN AND WELL CARED FOR BY POOL COMPANY. Good size and shape for play and laps/exercise. Home is interestingly decorated(loved it!) and well cared for, extreme attention to details. Loved the wood/tile floors...NO Carpet thank goodness. Views were phenomenal. Most beds slept well and good choice of sizes for our crew. Cottage lives like an extremely nice beach home, but not too fussy or overdone to be comfortable.

Seaforever has a really FUN layout with many whimsical touches. You can tell the owners had a great time decorating. The OBSERVATION deck was a great addition to appreciate EI's fantastic sunsets! The game room is huge and was perfect for the CASINO night we held in the basement for Grandma's 70th! Thanks for helping our family make new memories!

Our family greatly enjoyed Sea Forever. It is a beautiful home in a great location. The pool was wonderful and the theatre room was fantastic! The staff at Bluewater acted promptly to our issues and corrected the problems in a speedy manner. We particularly loved that the dolphins swam back and forth all day on most days!

The home was beautiful inside and and had every imaginable convenience. The kitchen was well stocked with all the gadgets you would want. Our family can't wait to return.
