Hi! My family and I (group of 15-20) are thinking of visiting Emerald Isle in June of 2016. We normally vacation in Alabama where we rent 3-4 condos in a row, poolside/Oceanside, ground level and each sleeping 6-8 for 3,000 per week. I understand the condos/beach homes may be set up a bit differently and that's fine. I am just looking for a starting point as far as finding a vacation rental. We would like either a home, duplex or row of condos (but only if they are ground level as we need the combined outdoor space) with a pool and Oceanside. My questions are in regards to who we should go through...Emerald Isle Reality, VRBO...etc and also which areas (addresses please) of Emerald Isle are best to stay in regards to beach quality, avoidance of late night noise and crowds and newer accomadations. Thanks in advance to anyone who contributes info!
