I tried to de-personalize this place but have found it difficult to be here myself without all the comforts of home ,so I simply dropped the price and just ask if you use the end of the aluminum foil just replace that one item another example would be laundry detergent so this way the home is fully stocked at all times with every possible comfort of home without the stress and expense of running to the store ,I live far away so I love the simple pleasure of packing only my clothes and food and only have to unpack a few bags, kick off my shoes and relax once I walk through the door . My love for cooking for a crowd also includes ever size pot and pan and mixing bowls . This home is designed for the perfect family gathering place. I also want to thank all my guests in the past 2009 -2015 for the wonderful respect they / you had for my home since it was my first year offering it for rent and cant wait to welcome you back in 2016 !!!


Well its 2017,whew,just does not seem like its been that long since we started sharing our home around 2010 ,but we are still here and its all due to all our past wonderful guests that have respected our home as if it was thier own and another great shout out to all our new 2016 guests, and especially to our dedicated repeat guests whom mostly have been staying ever year .We try very hard to keep our home updated,seems to get better with age ............Thank You from the bottom of my heart! Deb


Well its 2014 -2015 ,I just want to thank all my guests again and welcome the new guests , and for all you facebook fans Emerald Isle has wonderful posts also . We dont claim to be a five star but we work hard to keep up on all the maintaince and depend on our guests to report any damages as minor as they may seem .


Another great year for Skis Nest ,I cannot thank all my wonderful guests enough for the things they do to continue to make our home the best it can be !!!


I just want to thank all my guests for your continuing effort in helping us keeping our beach home the best ever ,I could not ask for any better guests !!!

```````````````2014- 2015`````````````````

another yaah hoo !

and whoop whoop shout out to all our past guests ,without the great care and respect you have had for our home we would not be continuing to share the great vacations and future memories as we still are able to share here together .

About Debbie Doss

My mother and father pictured in the photo are the original owners whom have passed .My name is Deb ,I also have two mentally dis-abled brothers I care and tend to ,we all spent weekends growing up at Emerald Isle ,my best memories were made there with my family and children ,I say children because we always made room for guests and now even our guests in the past are still returning also with thier new families and more children and memories continue to be made there ,something about Emerald Isle leaves everyone longing to return .

Debbie Doss purchased this mobile home in 1967

Why Debbie Doss chose Coastal North Carolina

I grew up at Emerald Isle then I married and had children and were blessed with parants that owned a beach home that we grew up in ,and then on the same property my father replaced it with another one large enough for me to bring my entire family to along with my parants to spend every single weekend possiby as a whole doing everything together ,and the tradition carries on ,my goal now is to put another home even larger than the one there now on the same property .

What makes this mobile home unique

I can honestly say its the front screened in porch my dad built many years ago ,its my favorite and everyone else that has ever been a guest in our home .Theres a daybed out there that my father built also that you always have to fight for each night to sleep ,you can hear the ocean waves crashing and sleep like a baby ,so relaxing ,roomy enough for two sometimes .

Great stay at a great price! Thanks Deb!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Deb was great to work with and responded back to any questions I had quickly. We really enjoyed the screen in porch and lights as well as the grill on the deck. It was really nice to have all accommodations of home with the relaxation of being on vacation. Loved being able to check in earlier than most stays. We will def be going again!

Having such a great place to stay for such a low price was a blessing. It was well stocked and we had everything

we needed. We felt right at home. The owner of the property responded quickly and was very freindly and helpful when i talked to her. I hope we get to go back sometime.

Perfect for all our needs

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay here. Was perfect for myself and a friend and our combined 5 kids age 2-12. Had everything we needed , loved that we didn't have to go stock up on odds and ends we only needed a few times. Great having a washer & dryer. Beach was just around the corner and just a short walk to ice cream , shopping & restaurants. AC unit had a problem and Deb grabbed a temporary one and drove down and installed it. Loved laying on the porch at night listening to the waves and cicadas. Already planning to visit again. Loved the area and skis nest met all our needs for a great vacation. Thanks Deb for an affordable vacation rental and sharing your vacation home.

Great relaxing weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am one of the repeat renters of this awesome little place!!! Not fancy, but perfect for relaxation and peacefulness. This is probably my 5th or 6th time staying here. Just went down for the weekend, which is never enough time at this little piece of heaven. As always, the place was clean upon arrival and ready to enjoy. The screened in porch is my favorite thing. I live on the porch when I'm there, especially at night with the cute deck string lights that are perfect at night and the breeze is blowing. Perfection!

Every thing you could ever need is all ready there just replenish when you leave for the next renter!!

The owner is super nice and very easy to work with. :) Thanks for sharing your place, Deb.

Our 32nd Wedding Anniverary!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice about this vacation home. It had everything that we could ask for. We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary here and had a wonderful time. Everything was clean, well-stocked and comfortable. The beach was just a very short walk away and the location was very convenient for eating out and shopping. Dealing with Debbie was always a pleasure and we had no trouble booking our reservation. We enjoyed ourselves immensely, and we will be staying here again! Thanks, Deb, for the wonderful vacation at your house!
