"Wait 'n See is in a wonderful location, away from the commercialism, tucked into a really nice neighborhood and steps away from planting your feet in the sand at water's edge. In mid-May, 16th-23rd, when we were there, our first time on Emerald Isle (five people originally, but only three of us could make it), the weather was wonderful and the beach was ours - as far as we could see either way - there were few people, mostly walkers and a surf fisherman or two. (We left Memorial Day Saturday and the Friday preceding, arriving cars began filling up the highway. Things were about to change!) From the lower of the two decks, while we were having coffee, we watched dolphins play one day and every day, but one, was a kite-flying day. Perfect. The unit itself is nicely furnished, very comfortable, TV and DVD player worked fine, appliances good and worked fine, as well. Our duplex neighbors were quiet, but one night when they were laughing and carrying on inside, we could not hear them at all through the common wall, which was kind of amazing, and really good, of course! The only reason I did not give this property a five-star rating was that the house maintenance people had not cleaned well. The Lazy Susan cabinet shelves with kitchen items on them had dried, spilled dark liquid on the top shelf and other areas in it and around the appliance/cabinet doors were not wiped clean. When we raised the blinds so we could see as much of the great ocean view as possible, we found all of the window sills were dirty, too. Needless to say, we spent some time cleaning before we really settled in."
