  • 5 of 5

This was our families third time vacationing at One In a Million. the owners is amazing. There were 12 of us all together. We had plenty of room and We had a beautiful week. great fishing from the dock and surf. We cannot say enough nice things about our stay at this home. Highly recommend it for families of all ages we had ages from 2 - 60's and everyone left wanting to come back again. I hope we are able to make this vacation work for us again it feels like a dream every time we are here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! Hope to stay again soon!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this home. The house was beautiful and the view even better! Our group consisted of 10 adults, 2 teens, a preschooler and 2 babies. The home was comfortable for all of us and met all of our needs. The kitchen was well equipped which made meal preparation easy. We really enjoyed the outside area including the pool, hot tub, porch swing, decks, fire pit and dock. We even saw Dolphins swimming just feet from the dock. The propery manager quickly responded to a minor issue. Everyone agreed that they would like to stay here again.

This was our second time vacationing in EI and this time we decided to find a bigger house with a few more amenities. This house did not disappoint. There were 12 of us, 7 of whom were kids and we had plenty of room. The kitchen is lovely and really the center point of activity within the house. The dedicated icemaker was genius and was put to good use for our cold drinks. The views are exceptional and you feel somewhat secluded which is nice.

A few of the negatives: The main bathroom is expansive but needs an update. The hot tub cover was in shambles and needed replacement and the furniture on the deck was in poor shape. The BBQ seemed to be on it's last legs. For a house of this grandeur, it needs a good solid BBQ.

The negatives were minor. The positives of the house and location easily outweigh these small issues.

So many activities from using the bikes to kayaking on the sound. We fished off the doc every day and the doc also had a sea doo lift which we used for our own sea doo which we brought!

The owner was responsive and helpful and really made the experience great.

Everyone's first words:

  • 5 of 5

This was our 18th time vacationing in Emerald Isle, but our first time in One In A Million. Everyone in our party said the same thing as they came into the house: "Oh my god. Oh My God!" We've stayed a lot of places, and this was the nicest, best appointed, best view house on the island. Being near the inlet was wonderful, and we were visited by a pod of porpoises early one morning. Being able to choose from ocean, sound, or pool was fabulous. We watched a thunderstorm move across the inlet from Jacksonville, marveled at the noisy birds in the martin house, and loves seeing the fishermen headed out to sea each morning. Our group was 11 members from 3 generations of our family, and everyone enjoyed their accommodations. The kitchen was as well fitted out as our home, and the porch, gazebo, decks, and dock made for lots of places to play, read, relax, and be together. One great house!

a little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to vacation. We have vacationed in Emerald Isle for over 25 years and this was our best year yet. This house is perfect for multiple families vacationing together. It offers such a variety of things to do, that we hardly had to leave the house at all. We spent hours fishing off the dock, kayaking, and exploring the sound. The view is incredible. The amount of wildlife right out the back door is amazing. We saw a manatee, dolphins, lots of fish, hermit crabs, snails...we didn't even do our annual trip to the aquarium because it was all right at the house. It's a bit of a hike to the beach, but well worth it. It feels like you're the only people on the beach. I highly recommend One In A Million. I can't wait to come back next year! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Fantastic Property for Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family - ranging in age from 18 months to 89 yrs old - could not have enjoyed our week any more. We have vacationed on pretty much the entire North Carolina coast --- this was, by far, the best location and vacation yet. The house is fantastic with everything you need and plenty of room to spread out. The location provides so much to do: swimming in the pool, fishing, boating, jumping off the dock, paddle board, kayaks, biking, floating out to the island and the sand bars, heading over the beach and ocean --- AWESOME. The views are stunning - the sunsets even better. Mr. Baum was a pleasure to work with and obviously takes great pride in keeping his piece of paradise in great condition for many to enjoy. We WILL be back next year.

The only problem we had the entire week... was leaving.

Marty - thanks for allowing us to disappear from it all at your home for a week!!!
