Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 8 A 2 and for providing such a thorough list of things which need attention. It pleases me to know you did enjoy a Fall fishing trip to Emerald Isle and I agree that the location of this condo is exceptional.

I hope you will vacation with Emerald Isle Realty again. We do book one year in advance so please call us to plan your 2012 fishing trip - 1-888-832-0140.

The Shore Tradition
This was our 16th visit to the North Carolina Shores. We previously did New Jersey, Deleware, and Maryland shores for many, many years. We enjoy visiting with relatives and friends and shopping antiques malls on the way to and from the Island, more than 500 miles from our home in Central Pennsylvania. The accomodations are excellent, the weather was mostly fine, and a good time was had by all. There are a few minor deficiencies with the unit which we rented, but those comments were left with the keys for maintenance to handle. I think it would be beneficial to include an exit questionaire in the key packet so tenants can report small findings or items needing minor maintenance when they arrive, and/or when they leave. (Items such as broken towel rack). It is nice to know that when you have a local question, a call to the office yields a pleasant response that satisfies.

R & R
Saw dolphins, many pelicans, beautiful rainbows and angry oceans.Condo was very good except for the master bathroom shower which really needs attention.

This was an awesome place with a great view. Will defiantly stay in this location again. The garden tub was not clean and near a public beach access point.
Stutts Vacation 2010
We were happy with the location, as we've stayed at Ocean Reef three years in a row.
The things that were so nice were:
1. The phone went out after two days and never came back on.
2. We were supposed to have DSL Internet, but didn't, and couldn't because the phone was out.
3. We didn't have garage access. I was told by the EI rep that this wasn't listed as an amenity, but since the previous units we've stayed in had garage access, it was just the assumption that this would be the case as well. I would recommend making this abundantly clear to renters in the future. Not so much for car storage, but to store beach gear like chairs, etc.
4. The TV in the living room was horrible. The picture was so bad we just gave up and didn't use it.
5. The place needs painting, and some TLC - lamp table was falling apart, walls dingy, etc.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you are pleased with the location Ocean Reef provides and enjoyed your vacation.
I am sorry that you experienced issues with the telephone, internet, and television. I have maintenance record about the telephone not working but nothing about the internet or television. I believe this was an isolated matter, perhaps an issue with the service provider.
As for the garage, we advertise all amenities which you will be able to access. If a garage is not listed in the property description, guests do not have access, even if it is at the property. Amenities offered to our guests are determined by each individual owner so they do differ from on property to another.
Thank you again for taking the time to provide us with your review. I hope you'll vacation with Emerald Isle Realty again.
2 days of bliss
A delightful rental unit, clean and comfortably furnished. The master bath 2 person tub was spectacular. View of beach terrific. Beach access
simply by walking outside.
The beach was quiet and we found good shells.
A great place for long beach walks.. good for families, or a quiet couples getaway.
A relaxing place to stay for a weekend.
Nice Ocean View Experience
Very nice location where you could constantly hear and see the ocean. Weather too cold to swim when we were there but walks along shore great. Condo was comfortable and spacious with great views of ocean from living area and deck.

Overall the facility is comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. The kitchen did not have a blender but Emerald Isle Reality was quick to provide one. We tripped a breaker and found the box to be locked but again Emerald Isle Reality was quick to respond. (They are so friendly and helpful). I do wish the owners would repair the broken closet doors in the master bedroom; that was so annoying. They were broken last year when we stayed in the unit also. Concerning location, the unit is very close to the beach public access so the weekends are more crowded but not so much so as to ruin your day.
Ocean Reef is a great place to stay - we have stayed there so much we feel like it is our second home - very comfortable! The views are awesome and it is a very relaxed time for us. We love the aquarium and their walking trails and antiquing in the neaby areas. Fresh seafood from the local fish markets as well as fresh produce from the roadside stands makes for wonderful meals! AND... a cold beverage and a good book on the ocean deck, it just doesn't get any better than that!

Great vacation spot on the beach
All the comforts of home. Enjoyed the fact we were right on the beach- did not have park blocks away and lug items. Clean, bright cheery house. Far enough out of town to avoid crowds/traffic but close enough to do things such as bike riding and running.
This past year we saw a variety of sea habitants- very interesting.
One suggestion- please include recycling containers at each property. We do our best to recycle during the year, we should not stop because we are on vacation.
