What Past Guests Are Saying
A week at the beach
Oceanfront! With seven days of perfect beach weather! I'll never know how you did that with the weather. Fun people in Harlan East. Close to good seafood, an aquarium and historic sites. Definitely 5 stars.
A cool beach shack
This little duplex is cute getaway for your beach vacation. My husband, son and I stayed with our parents for a week. It had two bedrooms, 1 bath. It is was very clean and tastefully decorated. The air conditioning was ice cold and huge relief during those super hot days. Based on past reviews this place has had a lot of updates. It's nice place to crash between hanging out on the beach and local sightseeing.
We visited from June 8 - June 15 2013.

Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time on the island while enjoying the newly renovated Harlan triplex. I hope you'll come again.
Comfortable and calm
The house was nice, the location was wonderful! The neighbors were the best!
It's on a dead end street, so it was great for my daughter. The way the house is situated behind the dunes kept the wind down and the sand less.
It could use to be updated, but the owner said he was working on it.
Overall a great week.

Perfect getaway vacation spot.
My wife and I were looking for a relaxing vacation spot away from the hectic DC metro area. We decided on Harlan West in Emerald Isle based on it's excellent location, affordability and pet-friendly policies. We both had been to Emerald Isle when we were younger, so we were somewhat familiar with the area. I can't say enough about how easy and simple the whole process was. From getting the rental agreement signed, to checking in and out, everything was very straightforward. The folks at Emerald Isle Realty were very nice and pleasant to talk with over the phone. The actual property was very clean and nice, and is the perfect spot for a week-long getaway. We would highly recommend Harlan West and Emerald Isle Realty to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing vacation.

Not worth the price!
We have visited EI 4 times & this by far was the worse place we have stayed. Upon arrival we found a huge roach. The house was just surface cleaned and we couldn't even find a broom to sweep the floors. With the type of floors in the unit sand is all over the place and there is not one area rug. Make sure you pack some house shoes, because these floors are hard and hurt your feet! We called cleaning crew and they came extremely fast to bring us a mop bucket and broom. After I cleaned it wasn't so bad. There are white see through curtains in the bedrooms and no privacy. It's apparent that the owners did not think this one through or are to cheap to buy proper window coverings. How about some blinds? The adjoining unit didn't have a blind on the door, so East side anyone can see you in the kitchen and living room areas. In the bedroom the air conditioner in the window was missing a side piece someone replaced it with part of the emerald isle reality sign. All kinds of bugs were coming in through the window. There is a huge sand dune for a veiw no ocean veiw. You have to climb steps up to a small platform for a veiw. The stairs leading to the beach looks unsafe. The bedroom has a junky dresser. The drawers will fall right out onto your feet. This thing needs repaired or set out for the trash. A small child could get hurt using it! Some of the rocker chairs on the porches are broken and need repaired. The stairs are very steep to climb. Pros about the place is the furniture is very nice and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was furnished with all the essentials (excluding some of the knives were missing from the set). The beach had very few people in this area, so it was very private on the beach. Sadly, I honestly do not think we would rent this specific unit again.
So much potential
This house has such a great personality once your inside. Unfortunately, the exterior makes you think you've made a terrible mistake. The ac was broken and had to be replaced, multiple screens were missing off of windows (we wanted to open them to hear the ocean), the kitchen supplies were woefully inadequate for anything more than Mac & Cheese, and one of the rocking chairs had a rocker that was broken beyond use.
It's a shame, with a bit of TLC this could be a very memorable ocean front cottage. For the price we paid there are too many other options on Emerald Isle. We wouldn't stay there again.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Harlan West. It pleases me to know that you were able to get away to Emerald Isle for a few days. I am sorry to hear that there was an issue with the air conditioning unit during your stay.
Unfortunately, items such as this are unforeseen so we can only be reactive and try to resolve it quickly. I'm glad to know that your full stay wasn't effected by the A/C issue.
The Harlan Property is one of the most economical properties which we manage and given its location, its hard to find a better value. I'm sorry you didn't think this was the case. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and allow Emerald isle Realty another opportunity to serve as your host. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
Perfect place for a traveler with a pet
I really enjoyed the stay at Harlen. It's not the Ritz, but perfect for dog owners who need to travel with their pets. It's a basic place but has everything you need. There is no view of the water from the house.

Older rental that was great for the value. Comfortable bed and furniture. Would benefit from some updating. Proximity to ocean was great and privacy this time of year was wonderful. A great week!

A very peaceful vacation
I actually did a review yesterday, however in case you didn't get it, I shall comment once again. In fact I did leave one item out. Our vacation was wonderful in so many ways. It was peaceful, beautiful and thoroughly relaxing. We were very lucky to have Harlen East vacant for most of the days that we were there. The only minor problems that we encountered was a stuck window in the Bathroom and dust bunnies under all beds.(upon arrival). We thought the ocean views were spectacular.
Not worth the money
The location is the nicest thing I can say about this place - right on the beach and private. Now here comes the complaints:
1 - No Washer or dryer
2 - No dishwasher
3 - Had to wait an hour outside of the unit for the cleaning crew to finish till 5:00 after an 11 hour drive to get in the place
4 - had to strip two beds that were left made from prior tenants
5 - Basement unit smelled aweful of mold - we had to switch with my brother in laws family in the upper unit because my daughters asthma was acting up
6 - Basement unit had no air conditioning in the bedrooms and out of the two filthy fans we located in a closet one blew up
7 - No television in any of the bedrooms
Needless to say we will never rent this place again - but did enjoy the beautiful weather and the town of Emerald Isle.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Harlan West. I am sorry you experienced some issues and disappointments with this vacation rental. It does however please me to know you found our town inviting and enjoyed our beaches.
I very much enjoyed my stay at Harlan West through Emerald Isle Realty. I was looking for a nice peaceful place to relax with my dogs on the beach and this was the perfect spot. The house was quaint and stress free and loved that the sheets and towels were provided along with cleaning crew upon my leaving. At the last moment I decided to leave a day early seeing that the house was available and I called Emerald Isle Realty who were very kind in making that change and making sure that the house was ready for my early arival. I will definately be using their services again.

The place was not cleaned very good. Sand Everywhere. Roaches crawling around. Very Noisy Neighbors. Light fixtures with burned out bulbs and broken bulbs. Only one TV (in LR;) and could not move TV to BR cause the cable wires must have been disconected (but cable were present). The deck and walkway to beach needs work - too many splinters and nail heads sticking up (also on the benches). Also, did not realize it was a Tri-Plex when I applied for it... My wife and I will rent through you again, but will request different property.

one of the best vacations my dayghter an i ever had

my daughter and I have a ton of great memories now thank you for your help with helping us we really appreciate it very much.
Great for kids, animals and parents!
Our fourth time to Emerald Isle. Have stayed at East end and West end; this was in center of island. Great oceanfront property. Enjoyed short walk up our own steps to the deck, then back down over the dunes to the beach. Bath & kitchen clean; baseboards & under beds needs good 'spring cleaning'. Hard to keep sand out - only noticeable because of wooden floors. All amenities we needed were there.
Approx. 10 minutes to grocery in either direction. If coming from mainland, BYOB. Expensive on island. Went to Beaufort & did the wild horse tour with Island Ferry Adventures. Tour guide was great & knew alot about area and information. Ate at Captain Bill's in Morehead city; our third time & they still ran out of baked potatoes!
Prefer Emerald Isle to traditional OBX. A lot slower pace and not as busy.
We loved it!
We loved it. I found this location on line
and we love to travel with our 2 dogs. We
brought in our daily food and cooked in the
kitchen and found it well supplied. We had
plenty of towels and linens and gave us the
feeling of being in our own cottage on the beach which is our favorite place.
Thank you for asking.
Down time not a moment too late
The price was right! Two bedrooms, good location on the beach. We thought it would be quiet since most people went back to school but ours was completely filled!
The tri-plex was nice. Pet friendly for our Jack Russell. Decent place to stay, I never felt uncomfortable and I'm a neat freak.
Couldn't see the beach directly you had to climb the stairs to the top of the dune to see the ocean.
There were no blinds or drapes on the doors so the folks next door with kids could peek through at night and check us out.
Privacy was important to us.
Just adopted Yogi and could not leave him in a kennel. Were vere fortunate to have a good neighbor in the other duplex. Our dogs got along well. Thanks to the owners for making it pet friendly. We had some wind dammage to the roof while there and it was fixed quickly.
