“Great place to stay if you like swimming with sharks!”

We've been coming to Emerald Isle nearly 30 years and have never experienced daily round-the-clock shark fishing and chumming just a few yards from the rental. We watched 5 sharks being reeled in, most over 10 feet long. Wonderful welcome from nearby homeowner on the first day there, telling us to stay out of the water due to the shark fishing. Wish we would have known about the shark fishing before booking!

Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. I am sorry to hear that this stay was not as enjoyable as previous vacations your family has taken to Emerald Isle. The fall season does bring many fisherman to our island, and because all of our beaches are public and not private we do not have any control over the recreation choices of vacationers or locals, nor do we have knowledge of what type of fishing is done day to day.

Sandcastle East is a nice duplex that boasts wonderful views. I hope you were able to enjoy this vacation home and the many activities and sights our island has to offer in spite of the surf fishing that took place. Should you ever want suggestions of things to do or places to see while vacationing with us, take a look at our Barefoot Guide that is included in your welcome bag or give our office a call. We are happy to help make your stay pleasant and memorable any way we can.
