Just "wow"!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! Great porches to sit and be lazy and watch ocean and dolphins. Beach was beautiful and our dog and teens enjoyed it. The shower on the top floor was amazing and we all ended up using it. Lots of games in the house for family time. Gourmet kitchen. Enjoyed the hot tub. Beach was quiet and easy to access.

Repairs Needed

  • 4 of 5

Hot Tub not working--Deck railing needs replacement------.other maintenance problems.

  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2017
  • Stayed: August 2017
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: We are so sorry the hot tub stopped working during your stay, however we immediately replaced it on Aug 29, 2017 with a brand new one to include LED lights, very powerful and relaxing jets & all the bells and whistles to enjoy! The deck railings around the pool deck have also been replaced. I know you expressed interest in returning to "Kiwi Splash" since your group enjoyed their stay but I would ask that the check-out house rules be followed next time. Our housekeepers were a bit upset that a young couple refused to check-out until 11:30AM and took last minute showers in the bathrooms that had just been cleaned and came in from the beach full of sand and walked through house to showers without rinsing! Dishes were left dirty in the sink, on counters & inside both dishwashers, furniture was moved around and not put back, laundry was not started & entire house was left very dirty and untidy. Guest duties are essential and greatly appreciated since there is so little time to turnover this large property for the next guests to enjoy it in pristine condition as it was delivered to you. Perhaps you did not see the Guest Check-out procedures posted on back of the Guest Welcome Sheet? My husband enjoyed meeting some in your group and we do hope you return to "Kiwi Splash" in the future! Take Care, Julie & Kenny Ash Owners

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Kiwi Splash was the perfect home for our beach vacation. Gorgeous views, huge pool, and plenty of space to relax. The owners were very responsive when we had a problem with the water pressure, and they sent a plumber the next day. The kitchen was very well equipped. Having 2 dishwashers and 2 washers & dryers was very convenient for a large group.

We loved our week at Kiwi Splash!

Owner's Response: It was lovely meeting you, your family & friends including your son's beautiful fur babies!!! We "thank you" for paying the pet fees which allows us to help less fortunate animals in the area. We're delighted that you enjoyed your time at "Kiwi Splash" and all it has to offer the large groups. Our huge swimming pool seems to be a hit with adults and children alike. The double dishwashers in our well equipped kitchen & double washer/dryers do help in keeping everything tidy. We appreciate you letting us know about the water pressure that was fixed immediately during your stay and we'd love to have you back! Take care, Kenny & Julie

Would Stay Again!

  • 5 of 5

The pool makes this house! The beach access is perfect. The kitchen and dining area worked very well for our large group. Having two refrigerators and dishwasher is really convenient. Plenty of space to park. The owners were so easy to work with and it was a good experience.

We are so happy that you also enjoyed the layout of kitchen/dining room, 2 refrigerators & 2 dish washers in main kitchen! This house is set up for large groups in mind offering plentiful parking and plenty of space in laundry room with 2 washers & 2 dryers. We hope to see you again! Take care, Kenny & Julie

Great Oceanfront Property with Fabulous Pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kiwi Splash recently was an excellent experience. We had stayed there about 15 years ago and were pleased to visit again. The property did not disappoint; the pool is absolutely the largest private pool of anywhere we've stayed (approximately 6 other Emerald Isle properties) and is wonderful! Any pool issues mentioned in earlier reviews has been completely remedied. The house itself is spacious and able to accommodate many adults and children (comfortably sleeps 16). The kitchen and other areas are well-stocked and very comfortable. There are 3 refrigerators which is helpful when there are multiple families present and the appliances are of a good quality. We found the beds especially comfortable for a rental property. The top floor master has an incredible walk-in double shower that was very refreshing after a hot day at the beach/pool. Outdoors is wonderful as well. The multi-level decks are fantastic for dolphin watching and are well outfitted with many chairs, tables, and chaises. The walkway to the ocean has recently been replaced and the covered sitting area is a great place to enjoy views of the beach and ocean. The location on the island is good; it is situated almost in the center of the island and is a short drive to several restaurants, shops, grocery stores and a movie theater. Emerald Isle is a beautiful place and Kiwi Splash made our visit there even more enjoyable!

Extremely disappointed! Please ask about pool!

  • 2 of 5

My family is very close and we look forward to quality time together every year, we have rented for years. Kiwi Splash was by far very disappointing to any house we’ve ever gotten. It was a little less expensive than we were used to but we figured it was because of it being an older home with a little funky layout. We looked at the online pictures and decided it would work for us. What you see, and what you get, are two different things. Upon arrival, we noticed the house was very dusty (circles of dust under the numerous nicknacks) and outside was littered with stuff from the previous people. Outside glass top table had food and other sticky stuff on it. The most noticeable thing was the pool, there was a giant tear in the liner and it was bubbled up all over. Two hoses had to be running constantly to keep the water level barely up to the skimmer. Because of the water running constantly it was green in two days, my husband added proper chemicals (the owner told us where we could find them and didn’t come by til Wednesday to check on it). They also said the hoses were necessary due to the evaporation issue (really?!) Reviews from last 2 years mention pool liner issues and owners claimed they would be replacing it, well it hasn’t been done, but online pics show a gorgeous pool. Other issues: only 1 of 2 washers worked, only 1 of 2 dishwashers worked, 2 of the 3 sinks in kitchen leaked all over floor when used, hot tub was green with panels missing exposing filters, pool safety railings and ladders practically falling out of concrete, no door on 8th bedroom, top floor bathroom shower and door knob both broken, bottom floor bedroom leaked buckets of water during the tropical storm and the bathtub water was green all week. We had to wash one comforter because there was very obvious white stains all over the underneath of the burgundy material (yes, really gross!). The final blow? My sister left a drawer full of clothes behind and asked to have them sent to her and owner, after knowing we weren’t happy with a lot of things there, said she would be happy to do it for a fee of $50 plus shipping costs! Wow! Please note when renting you pay a “non refundable damage fee”, not a security deposit. We are trying to figure out what they use that money to fix??? We are not super picky people or big complainers and we could have dealt with one or two issues, but all of this combined with the owners lack of caring attitude left us with a bad taste for the first time ever.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry if you found a few dusty items, our housekeepers work very hard to provide a clean property for you to enjoy however there isn't always time for the extra's in the turnover. We have changed our check in time to 4pm so that these things can be addressed. Pool liner has been ordered yet again, it's the 2nd time in the last 2 years. You can read the reviews from May 31, 2015 enjoying the pool and July 14, 2015 review wanting to return to "Kiwi Splash" property! By Aug, 2015 very small areas of the liner were starting to show some pulling away at the rim. We would have wanted to replace the liner immediately however having the largest pool on the rental market 20 x 40 feet, it would take about 3 days just to drain it, install the liner another day and refill it 3 more days so someone renting would be without a pool for the week so it's a must to wait until the end of the season. I hope you can understand. Our appliances are all in working order, they are top of the line and digital appliances are sometimes not "user friendly" for that we apologize however I did email someone in your party instructions on washer and they had responded "thank you" we got it to work and they never mentioned d/w which also worked just fine. There was a small drip from the triple main sink and plumber fixed it and checked all other sinks & confirmed they were all in working order. The hot tub is delivered clean with fresh water for each new guest on turnover day with courtesy check mid week if needed. It was serviced the morning of your arrival & delivered clean, we cannot service it daily as you demanded. Pool ladder base to concrete has been replaced & we will address the top floor bathroom shower door knob. The bottom French door was left open hence for water during rainstorm. I shipped a drawer full of clothes to your sister FREE of charge so I'm not sure why you are stating that I charged $50.00? Please understand that we strive to deliver everything in perfect order however with a very busy season there is bound to be wear and tear at the end of the season. We have replaced the liner just last year and yes we have to do it again this year. We are kind people and genuinely want to give you (our guests) a wonderful experience. We take pride in our rental property and if you read the many positive 5* reviews you would have to believe that is true.Your husband was belligerent apparently under the influence & we avoided confrontation. Julie
