About Renee English

I am the property manager. I manage this property for my parents. They own a second unit at Ocean Reef for personal use. We are from New Bern, just a short drive to Emerald Isle. I grew up going to Emerald Isle and now I enjoy taking my kids to Emerald Isle and staying at Ocean Reef Condos. We also love visiting the Aquarium and riding our bikes down the walking/biking trails in Emerald Isle. After a nice bike ride we stop in the Dairy Queen or Sweet Spot for a treat.

Renee English purchased this condo in 2011

Why Renee English chose Emerald Isle

This property was purchased because the owners already owned a unit at Ocean Reef. They loved their unit so much they bought a second one to rent out to you!

What makes this condo unique

We love Ocean Reef because the condos themselves are unique and beautiful. The covered porches on the second level units allow you to rock on the porch in the shade and enjoy watching and listening to the ocean. It's a wonderful private community. It's location is just a short drive to all the great restaurants and the aquarium. Now just 3 short miles to a brand new awesome playground!

This was my first time visiting NC. My family and I were comfortable staying here. A few things were a bit confusing. Such as what door belonged to home, what code to use at gate, how to access garage. Nothing was labeled. However Rene responded immediately! :) So, it was nice and convenient. The walk to the ocean was only steps away. The house is adorable and worked for the 6 of us. The local stores and restaurants make you feel like your right at home. I would definitely come back! This home is cozy and is a cute getaway from work and chaotic lives. Internet and cable all worked great. This location feels safe and would highly recommend. Loved my first visit to Emerald Isle, NC. ❤

Beautiful and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this condo in the Ocean Reef community!! The condo itself was so inviting and cherry, perfect for the two of us and included all the amendities we needed including little things down to silverware! We loved the convenient access to the beach and community pool were as well! The condo owner Renee was easy to communicate with, laying out all the check in/out and community instructions to make for a smooth stay. This was our first visit to Emerald Isle and I know it won't be our last!

Really nice place to stay for a family beach vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice, we loved the layout and the decor. Proximity to the pool and the beach was perfect. Having the two bathrooms plus washer and dryer was very much appreciated during our visit. The place was equipped with pretty much everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this to others and suspect we'll be back again someday.

Cute Condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. It was very clean and comfortable for our family of four. It is a first floor unit and the only downside to this was the high level of noise from the condo above this one. Everything could be heard from above! The walk to the beach is very easy and close and the pool is great! We loved playing shuffle board each night, too. The condo was well stocked and the addition of linens was great. We did have trouble getting a response from the owner on a question we had prior to arriving. We emailed and called, but couldn't get a response.

Great Location! Hope to stay again in December!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with a great location! Perfect for a family of four. The view was great and you can hear the waves. I recommend bringing bikes or renting them. Biking is a great way to see the Isle. Our family of three had the best week! Can't wait to visit again!

Convenient and safe, but could use some updating.

  • 2 of 5

Great location, but I was disappointed in the interior. With a few upgrades, it would be a lot more comfortable and practical. There is only one lamp in the entire condo - you have only overhead lighting otherwise, and there is only one rug, other than the doormat, so you will be brushing off your feet and brushing sand out of the beds from the start. It would also have been nice to have had curtains or blinds on the glass doors that could be drawn closed at night. Not much privacy in a small community, and with the overhead lighting, I felt we were somewhat on display. The kitchen is very pretty with sufficient dishes, but in need of decent cooking utensils. The ice maker, however, worked great!! Also, the Dollar General right down the street was huge and well stocked for things you might need.
