Pictures Don't Do it Justice!

  • 5 of 5

I mean't to leave a review right after we stayed but completely forgot until we started planning our next Beach House trip. We stayed here the week of July 4th in 2015....the calendar won't let me go back that far. There were 11 adults and 8 kids. This house couldn't have been more perfect for us! We were a block away for the beautiful beach! And when we were ready to head back to the house the kids could shower off in the showers outside, and then jump in the pool! While cooking we could overlook the pool from the deck above...and no worries because the elevator took us straight up to the kitchen on the 3rd floor. We grilled several nights and really enjoyed this luxury. When we put the kids to bed it was time for the adults to play. We enjoyed a soak in the hot tub every night that week! A group of us went fishing and caught a ton of fish! Plus a couple sharks lol but those were tossed back. We grilled up fresh fish that night! One day we all took a boat out to the Lighthouse. I highly recommend this for sightseeing! We walked along the beach where you could swim and collect a TON of seashells! The lighthouse experience was amazing! A couple miles down the road there's a putt-putt, bumper boats, and a small race track! The kids had a blast there! On the 4th of July there were fireworks everywhere! We had fireworks right over the ocean just to the right of the house! We all sat on the deck and just took it all in! This property is definitely one of a kind! It's a great price for a beautiful home! When looking for next summer we all just kept saying "maybe we should just go back to Emerald Isle because the house was perfect!" We would all highly recommend this place!

Beautiful Home with Great Views!

  • 3 of 5

My family stayed a week in this vacation home to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. There were 14 of us, including 3 generations. The home is beautifully decorated with great views of the ocean and the sound and a very nice size pool. However, when we arrived the house was not clean. The first floor had not been vacuumed, there were dirty cleaning rags left in the bathrooms and the first floor smelled very musty. This smell persisted throughout our vacation. I contacted the rental agency and they sent someone to finish cleaning the house. However, the home was very dusty and this was not corrected, which created a problem for those with dust allergies. The drain in one of the second floor bathrooms was clogged and we were not successful in getting the agency to send someone out to fix it. Also, the only outside lights that worked were on the middle floor. There were no lights when entering from the first floor. There were not lights up the outside steps and no working lights in the pool or hot tub. This presented a safety concern as we had young children as well as an older couple. We reported this to the rental agency but it was not resolved. This owner has a beautiful property that they have decorated beautifully but unfortunately it seems the rental agency is not keeping it up nicely throughout the season.

Luxary Living at Emerald Isle

  • 5 of 5

The on line video does not do this property justice. We expected this home to be very nice, but we were even more impressed when we arrived. The house was very clean and the layout was such that we could enjoy family time, yet have our private time as well. The beds were extremely comfortable--all family members report this. The kitchen was one of the best equipped that I have ever worked in. We enjoyed the porches and rocking chairs. The view is absolutely stunning. The pool and hot tub were enjoyed by all. Again, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the pool. The beach was beautiful and the access so easy--only a couple of minutes. We have visited many beaches and stayed in numerous homes but we all agree, this was the nicest one. Home is very tasteful in its décor.. We certainly will place this at the top of our list for future vacations.

June Wedding

  • 4 of 5

I rented this house for me and my family for my wedding. My husband and I got married on the third floor balcony over looking the ocean and the pool. It was a beautiful house and views, just like the picture show. We not only celebrated my wedding but also my nephew's 18th birthday and Father's day. The house was not clean when we arrived, dead bugs all over the house, including the kitchen. The house was also very dusty and the shelves in the refrigator door were broken as well as a cabniet door. The rental office did not respond when I called them to report the issues until I contacted the home owenr. She was very quick to resond. We ended up leaving the house cleaner than when we arrived. There was also a very strong musty/mildew/mold order in the theater/pool room. I think this from having to use the inside bathroom if you are at the pool. This smell goes up the steps so if you have allergies be aware of this. I ended up having to use the outside steps to avoid this. This will not keep me from renting this house again though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response and your comments regarding our home. I feel as tho I need to make a comment regarding your critique just as a matter of explanation. Every year prior to our first guests arriving, my husband and I go to the home and spend a few days opening the home and preparing it for the upcoming season. This year we purchased all new pool deck furniture as well as adding an outdoor dining table and chairs on the pool deck. We also had gates installed on levels two and three of the outdoor staircases to add security for children roaming on these levels. We had all carpets cleaned during this week and upon noticing an air conditioning issue which caused a lingering odor in the home I decided to replace all three air conditioning units prior to this tenants arrival. This was an incredably expensive decision considering the units were only 7 years old, however I take very good care of this property and make every effort to be proactive in the maintenance of this home. I have 3 families that return to this home each year simply because they have allergy issues and they know they will not have problems in my home because of the extensive care of the home and cleaning of air vents and the fact that we do not allow pets of any kind. Also, when we were there we noticed some ants and occasional bug and had the exterminators do treatments inside and outside of the home the week prior to this tenants arrival. Because of this, housekeeping was scheduled to do another cleaning prior to this guests arrival, somehow this did not happen and I am very sorry. As soon as I found out I had housekeeping take care of the problem. I take great pride in the five star positive reviews we receive and strive to keep this home in five star condition.

Luxury on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Enjoyed a great Thanksgiving holiday with the whole family. Very comfortable. Had some plumbing issues upon arrival and management company was very slow to respond, almost like they couldn't be bothered on a holiday. The owner, however, was very receptive and tried to rectify the situation immediately. The house was not cleaned for our arrival. Everything was very dusty and toilets needed to be brushed out. There were dead bugs on carpets and window sills. The owner was upset and taken aback. She did say she would take this up with her management company, and I am sure she will see that it does not happen again. Our arrival issues were not enough to detract from the weekend. The plumbing was resolved within the first few hours. The beds were comfortable and the views were amazing.The house is bright and happy, and very tastefully decorated. It is steps from the public beach access. It has 2 refrigerators, an ice maker, plenty of utensils, and a kitchen large enough for 4 cooks at the same time. It has a huge dining area which nicely accommodated all of us for a great family meal and holiday getaway. There is a basic supermarket about 10 minutes up the road and a gourmet supermarket over the bridge about 20 minutes away. If renting a home of this size is in our future plans, we would not hesitate to rent here again.

Three Years in a Row

  • 5 of 5

As the title says, this was our third year in a row for staying here. While there, we talked about how perfect the place is, how we won't think of looking for somewhere different. Beautiful views of the ocean, short walk to the beach, great pool and hot tub. Owner is always helpful and attentive, and the photos almost portray what a beautiful house that it is.

I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a stay at Emerald Isle. You won't be disappointed one bit.
