Disappointed for my grandkids. They were looking forward to swimming!

  • 3 of 5

Pool was closed the whole visit. Ocean was beautiful but due to circumstances beyond anyone's control the jellyfish won until the last full day. Condo was nice, but did not have washer or dryer and the ones provided were not operating. It was overall clean. Would I come back to Emerald Isle maybe ,but it needs some modernization. Thanks for the visit!

I arrived and not only was the wifi password on the fridge, but there were white fluffy towels and fresh bedsheets by the pullout couch. The condo had tasteful decorations and plush carpet and couches. I had a variety of lamps to set the mood that I desired. The big screen had cable and there was a beautiful view from the balcony (which was soundproof!!). Though I didn't need to utilize the washer/dryer unit located in the laundry room halfway down the condo hallway, the sea breeze on the balcony worked nicely with the complementary drying rack to get the job done.The fridge was ice cold and I had an assortment of glassware to crisp my chicken nuggets in when I was hungry. A little renovation construction was going on in the complex at the time, but the workmen were friendly and gave the inside scoop on the fun beach locations and places to eat. 10/10 I recommend!

Great beach access but will not be booking here again.

  • 2 of 5

I'm giving this property a 2 star rating for a couple of reasons. Upon arrival the refrigerator did not chill our food at all for several hours, it did eventually start to cool after we called and reported it not working but we has to transfer our food to the cooler in the process.

We did not bring beach chairs or hair blow dryer because from all of my last experiences with VRBO those items have been provided however we had to rent beach chairs since there wasn't any and just go without a hair blow dryer. Also, there is no washer/dryer inside of the unit. Little things but things I expected to have.

The main reason I will not be renting from this unit again is the fact we forgot a beach tent and someone forgot a deffel bag full of clothes upon leaving and called within 2hours as soon as we realized and everyday several days following. We were told we would be called back however never received a call or any information of our lost items. We would have driven back had we known we could have gotten our items back.

On the positive side the condo has great access to the beach which we loved! We also enjoyed having a beach side pool so we could easily go back and forth with the kids. Another positive is plenty of space for 6 people.

Owner's Response: We're sorry to hear that you wouldn't stay at this lovely property again due to the missing duffel bag you left behind. We were happy to return the duffel bag full of clothes to you as soon as we located them, so perhaps your review was posted prematurely. To address the refrigerator issue, it is quite common for guests to think a refrigerator isn't cooling upon arrival. When you load up a refrigerator with warm groceries, it takes a while for it to catch up. We're glad that you enjoyed the great access this unit has to the beach and to the beach side pool and hope that you enjoyed your vacation otherwise-
