Great place!
We visited this place for a much-needed getaway & felt right at home the moment we arrived. Great for multi- families (used to be two duplexes- beautifully remodeled and a whole unit now) my husband & our two kids stayed in one side of the home & my father, stepmother, sister & boyfriend stayed on the other side. We loved the fenced in backyard for our black lab, and the amazing kitchens fully stocked with literally anything we needed. We’ve never been so pleased with how well the kitchen was stocked when down to trash bags/laundry detergent. Beds were comfortable, minor issues with the door on the outside deck staying open due to wind damage & a little hot with not much shade out back. Quick effortless walk to the beach & a bit further of a walk for the sound access. Absolutely wonderful & just what we needed. Thank you it SHORE was fun!

Awesome rental!
Awesome rental! A duplex rented as one was the best for our family and two dogs. Fenced in yard was a bonus! Very responsive host, clean place, we felt right at home. It is literally a 2 min. walk to the beach! Nice new kitchen with plenty of pots, pans, utensils. Having the linens provided was a big plus and a TV in each room was great! Would definitely rent this place again :)

Enjoyed it!
We stayed at this location for a bachelorette party. Everyone loved it and we enjoyed our stay! Just a short walk to the beach!

very easy walk to beach
It was a very easy walk to the beach. The house was organized and clean. The fenced in back yard was very nice and a great place to relax.

10/10 Recommend!
My entire family stayed at Shore is Fun: Two teenagers, 4 adults, 1 baby, 1 toddler, and a 2nd grader. The place was perfect! Having the two sides allowed us to have a quiet side for remote working during the day (the Wi-Fi was great!) and a loud side for the littles and the teenagers. The place was well stocked for large family meals with everything that we needed to prepare and serve food. The dishwashers made cleanup super easy. Everything was labeled so that we knew where to put the dishes away, which was super helpful with a large group! Super close walk to the beach was perfect for the littles and we rented beach cruisers from Bryan at Beach Wheels for the teenagers so that they could take a short bike ride into shopping and the pier. (Bryan was also awesome, so if you need beach rentals, find him on google. We rented beach chairs and umbrellas from him as well.) 10/10 would recommend and am hoping to be back next year!

Very pleased!
Very pleased with our stay! This was our first time here and grateful to have found this home. It had everything we needed and even more than we expected. The exterior of the house makes it seem like a normal house but once you go inside it’s very beautiful and clean. The walk to the beach was no more than 5 minutes (we had kids and grandpa). Definitely recommend this place and the hosts were quick to respond or give us a heads up for things.

Clean home
Nice clean home close to the beach. The back yard was private and was a great for our dogs to play in.

Fabulous As Always!
This is probably the 8th time we have stayed at Shore Is Fun, and it has gotten even better. The new fridges, air fryer, and gas grill are great additions this time around. Great space for 2 small groups or one big one and the location can't be beat. Can't wait to come back!

Family Reunion
Our extended family rented several properties from Shorewood Real Estate for a reunion. I stayed in Shore Is Fun, which I had stayed in other trips to Emerald Isle. It was perfect for our group. The deck is huge and can the property accommodate many people when entertaining. Oh yeah, the kitchen is stocked. I brought bar items that I thought would not be available for me, but to my surprise, they had the items I needed. Great trip.

Everything you need!
This is just like staying in your own home (minus sheets and towels). Big porch, gas grill, tvs, fenced yard. I will definately come back.

Perfect Space
This is the third time we have stayed in this house! It’s a perfect fit for our large family! The yard is perfect for games, super close to the beach, well-stocked! We’ll be back again!

Shore Is Fun
My family of four plus two dogs loved staying here. There was plenty of room and the house had a relaxed homey feel. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Spring Break 2021
I recently took my 14 year old twin girls, my partner, and our family dog on our first Emerald Isle vacation for spring break. Shore is Fun was the perfect place for us and our four legged family member, with a fenced in yard and many ocean views. Just 30

Perfect vacation house
Shore is Fun was the perfect house. The kitchens are well stocked and the backyard is awesome. Having the two separate parts was perfect for us.

Amazing Vacation
This was the 4th time we have stayed at Shore Is Fun, and are pleased every time. It's the perfect rental for two small groups that want some space while vacationing together. The keyless entry addition was much appreciated and we greatly enjoyed the Fire

Shore is fun is an older home but well maintained. The two sides made it great for my grandbaby to have privacy and somewhere quite to sleep. It was well stocked for a weeks stay and just a short walk to the beach.

This fall we made reservations with Bluewater Realty for a condo which at the last minute they could not provide due to construction. They asked Shorewood Real Estate to provide us with the the condo. Shorewood Real Estate provided us with a better accomm
