“Nothing swanky but comfortable and good location”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2010

The check-in with shorewood was really easy and we pulled into our property around 4:45 only to find that the home hadn't been cleaned since the previous guests left. We called the office and they sent someone immediately to come over and investigate. They were about to start cleaning when the real cleaning crew arrived. They did an ok job--not perfect as I think they were rushing. We loved the location being right on the beach and having the pool was a great change from the ocean. The home is definitely pretty dated but it's comfortable and functional. A great choice if you want to be on the beach and don't care about having anything fancy. We appreciated being able to rent it by the night as we didn't have a week to spend at the beach. We were disappointed with the home not being cleaned when we arrived but couldn't be more satisfied with Shorewood's quick response to the problem.

“We had a wonderful time! Great View!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2010

We enjoyed our stay and loved the view from the house. The location on the beach is fabulous!. The house roomy and has lots of space. It was clean and had all the needed kitchen supplies, etc for a vacation rental. We would return and stay here again.

Some of the skillets in the kitchen need to be replaced. The bathmats also. The king size sheets that are supp[lied by the rental agency are too small for the master bedroom bed -

“Honest Evaluation”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2010

The house was very nice. Clean, lots of space, and view was wonderful. I would rent it again. Only two issues. The linens were not delivered one time, we called a day later and they were delivered promptly, minor issue. The house did not have free internet, so we paid around $30.00 for internet access for the week. Unfortunately the signal strength was weak and we were only able to use the internet about 50% of the time.

“Unit getting run-down”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2009

When we first arrived at our rental unit, it was immediately obvious that the unit had not been vacuumed. I must mention, however, we were allowed to check in early because our unit had not been rented the previous week, but shouldn't it have been cleaned the day the last renter left? There were Chee-tos and chips all over the living room carpet, there was hair in the sink and tub in the bathroom downstairs, and there were a few hairs and food bitlits in the fridge. After cleaning the unit myself, I started to unpack and realized that several lightbulbs did not work. Several of the screens had duct tape holding them to the window, the jacuzzi tub was full of sand. There was so much random furniture in the unit that we could barely move around without tripping over something. In the master bedroom, the furniture was very worn and there were more light bulbs out in there. Although we arrived on July 4, the weekend we always visit, I have never seen the beaches so crowded. I am thrilled that so many people love EI as I have always loved it, but it really made for a trashy and noisy stay. While the complex property managers tried to enforce the "guests only" policy for the pool, it was frequently broken by users who openly discussed the fact that they were staying at another complex. Finally, I was frustrated when I checked out and told the rental agents about the wear and tear on the unit, and that perhaps the owners needed to do a little upkeep. Instead of making a note of my concern, I was met with defensiveness and an air just short of hostility. For the last 7 years, my family has stayed at Ocean Reef. This is by far the worst unit I have ever been in. I hope that problem is resolved during the off season, or I will be staying somewhere else, unfortunately! On the plus side, the complex is in a great location, only about 10 minutes from the aquarium. The unit is oceanfront, and from the deck, you have a great view of the island's fireworks!

Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Indeed, Ocean Reef is a unique condo complex, whereby each ocean front unit has direct access to the ocean, via stairs to the beach, much like a cottage. We apologize that you arrived to find the unit in anything less than perfect condition. Had we been immediately notified of the unit’s condition upon your arrival, we would have done everything possible to remedy the situation. Each unit is cleaned and inspected when a guest departs. The conditions you describe indicate that the unit may have been used the week between the two rentals. We suggest that each guest survey their unit upon arrival and immediately report any adverse conditions to Shorewood. Our goal is for each and every guest to have a pleasant, memorable vacation on our beautiful Emerald Isle.
