Shell Seekers was the perfect house on the beach for our large family! We loved the location of the house, size of all the rooms, & beautiful views from inside and outside the house! The huge upper deck with one side uncovered and the other covered over a large table was perfect for eating outside and playing games! The kids loved to go to the ocean, then jump in the hot tub and swimming pool. (Having the outside faucet so close to the pool and hot tub for rinsing off was very convenient.) It was obvious that Bluewater takes great care of their rental homes. We would definitely stay at Shell Seekers again!

Great location within easy walking distance to pier. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Two kitchens including three dishwashers, two ovens, and a beverage cooler and ice machine! Social space outside for swimming, hot tub, picnic and grilling area all close together. Although small, pool was well-used by our family.

The privacy and abundant space for our entire group. Two kitchens were very helpful and the upstairs beverage cooler was great. Private pool, hot tub and separate outdoor decks were great too.

This property is absolutely AWESOME for families that have a wide variety of ages. Being able to split the family up by floors was a game changer. This is the best property that we have rented in several years. Everyone agreed that this property and Emerald Isle was a hit! You can not go wrong with this property!!

The house was perfect for our rental group (3 adult couples). Lots of space, very comfortable furniture, extremely well-stocked kitchen (we all love to cook), beautiful view (especially of the 'pink moon' over the pier, close to the south end bike path to The Point.

Our rental house on the beach was perfect. We loved it. It was beautiful inside and had everything we needed to enjoy our Emerald Isle vacation...year #28! Love Bluewater! We have rented through them for many, many years. They are extremely friendly, helpful and professional! See you next year!

This was our 3rd year renting Shell Seekers. We love the new updates. The sectional sofa in the main living room provides so much more seating. The beverage refrigerator is so nice to keep all the beverages cold and frees up much needed space in the two other refrigerators. Shell Seekers has a great layout for our family of 12, which includes 4 generations. We love the 2 living spaces and 2 kitchens. We enjoy gathering around the big table for dinners and the kitchen has everything you need. The bedrooms are all great sizes and most of them have beautiful views. This is our 20th year vacationing in Emerald Isle. We keep coming back because of the beautiful beach, and the ease of renting the right house to meet our needs. The house is even better than the pictures.

This was by far our best vacation ever. With nine adults and six children, I can truly say that we lacked nothing. My only suggestion would be to inform renters that they should ask ahead for crib linens. This is not a criticism, only a suggestion. We had everything we needed, and then some. I love to cook, and I did a lot during our stay. I wish my kitchen was as well equipped as this one! Five stars everywhere! Can't wait to come back next year!

Best Family Vacation Ever....We spent a week at Shell Seekers!!! It was beautiful! The interior was newly painted and carpeted. The landscaping was also new. The kitchen was very well stocked with appliances and gadgets. There was lots of room fro everyone. It is in a great location. Staying right on the beach was a real treat. We could go from the house to the ocean easily. Bonus, it is a short walk to the 'Sweet Spot' ice cream shop!!!!

The layout of the house is terrific, with two living areas, two kitchens and two refrigerators. The children really enjoyed the downstairs living area. The outdoor pool was perfect and was the well-equipped kitchen. It is extremely clean, conveniently located and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Our family had a wonderful and perfect vacation with this home! It had PLENTY of space for our family (which included 3 small children). The child friendly features were incredibly helpful for us. All bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, comfortable, and clean. We had everything we needed in the main kitchen - but it was nice to have the additional refrigerator downstairs for drinks and overflow. I have nothing negative to say about our experience. We loved it, would come back, and most definitely recommend to anyone!
