2nd time staying at Grand Villas. High end amentities, great pool, oceanfront, quiet, and safe. We passed Va Bch, Sandbridge Beach, and the Outer Banks to stay here. Local food, golf, and shopping are perfect. Old school beach without all the commercialization. Outer Banks 30 years ago.

Unit needs a deep cleaning. Arrived to find dirty linens from previous renter still in unit had to call EIR who sent someone to make beds with clean linens and remove used linens. Unit was nice enough but lacked some items in kitchen such as pot holders as well as a large pot to boil water to cook pasta or crab legs. The use of beach lounger/umbrella was great. Staff was helpful and friendly. Not sure if unit was worth the $$$$ would rent here again just different unit. Access to fire pit was nice but unit lacked privacy since no covering on door to patio.

My family stayed at the Grande Villas in august 2012. We were very disappointed. We were told to expect top notch luxury accomodations. We did not receive what we felt to be luxury accomodations.
The condo was dirty (garbage under furniture, roaches and spiders in living areas, stains on carpeting). I understand rental properties sometimes have bugs and stains but when you are paying the price of Grande Villas that should not be the case.
The water quality was terrible. When I gave my four year old a bath, the water was brown. The locks were broke on one of the doors and we were told it would be fixed in a few days. It never did get fixed.
The young men that put up the chairs on the beach in the morning are not as available as advertised. Most days my husband put up the chairs himself.
Our opinion is you could find a condo for half the price and basically get the same things. The pool at this complex is beautiful and is the nicest part of this establishment. Otherwise, most amenities were very average at best.
Thank you for your review of your stay at Grande Villas 1-I. Grande Villas is a unique property for our area as there really aren't any other condo communities like it. The building, grounds, and accommodations are lavish and most are very pleased. I am sorry that this was not your experience and will certainly pass your feedback on to the management company who maintains Grande Villas.
Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will revisit the Crystal Coast and allow Emerald Isle Realty another opportunity to serve as your host. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Beautiful & Comfortable Grande Villa 1-I”
Left on 08/16/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 16, 2011Stayed Jul 2011
First time visitors to Emerald Isle/Indian Beach. Villa 1-I is beautiful (clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated,conveniently located to the beach/pool). Ocean view fm patio. We have vacationed at Marriott and Westin timeshare resorts, and this villa was just as nice--if not nicer. As far as the Grande Villa resort is concerned: complimentary towel & beach chairs were great, plenty of chairs at pool, small but sufficient exercise room, game room was a plus (I could keep an eye on my kids while working out). When we booked our vacation, Grande Villas was advertising on-site surfing lessons for kids and yoga/fitness classes. We were disappointed to find that they were no longer offering these when we arrived. (They do offer one fitness class on Saturday mornings.) We also felt that the pool side "cafe" had a very limited and overpriced menu. The grill (which was more like a George Foreman) was broken the day we tried to eat lunch at the pool. It was a small disappointment because we were expecting more of a poolside bar with mixed drinks, better menu, etc. None of this affected our vacation overall, but we did feel like we paid more than we have at resorts in the Caribbean and Hilton Head where more activities, menu and drink options, etc were offered. The trade off is a quieter, less crowded vacation. We did not bring our bikes and did not miss them because the bike paths in Indian Head are just designated lanes on the main road--not something I would have been comfortable doing with my 9 & 11 yr old. We drove to Fort Macon and were pleasantly surprised. Beaufort is a great historical town with cute restaurants and lots of interesting history. We also spent several hours at the NC aquarium--great aquarium--check out special activities through out the week (Shark Night, Pirate Night, etc.). There are several putt putt and go cart courses close by. Enough to do, but still low key. Easy check in/out.
