Very Good

“great place to stay”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2015

This is a great place to stay. The location is the best. Other than the amount of steps to get this view I would not want to stay anywhere else.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review. I agree that the view from Dunescrest West is wonderful, and it is true that the view gets better and better as you go higher. We look forward to having you again as our guest.

Wifi was an amenity but did not work 90% of the time. Furniture broken and dated. Rain POURED in around lower bedroom windows! Did not feel it was worth the money we payed! Very disappointed. Too many issues to post.

“Awesome as usual!!!”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2013

This was our 2nd time staying at Dunescrest, we rent both sides... It was awesome as usual!!! Can't wait to go back!! Great location, lots of room, it is one of the older houses but our favorite place to stay!! Lots of stairs, but they do get easier after a couple of days...

“view was beautiful!!”

Rental was average, The fisrt floor has a musty smell. the dryer dosen't work very well. It would take about an hour and a half to dry an average load. the cushions on the couches need cleaned have stains in several spots. and the upper deck could use some work rails are loose in some spots. all in all was ok for the cost.I think the photos of the rental should be updated. would I recommen to frien or family maybe if updated.

“Pleasant Experience at Emerald Isle”

Reviewed 24 May 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Dunescrest West...convenient to shopping, nice area and property. It does take some adjusting to a reverse floor plan, but it worked out well. Convenient beach access. Would recommend more bedroom Tv's. All in all it was a pleasant experience at this rental property.

Response from the manager I'm so pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay at Dunescrest West. The reverse floor plan is ideal for enjoying panoramic views and I hope you did just that. Our vacation planners are available to plan your next vacation so please call us at 1-888-832-0140.

“Needs repairs and updating”

Reviewed 16 May 2013

Arrived in middle of exterior renovations. Unable to park under unit due to blockage by large construction debris container. Lots of nails on ground and on stairs and deck. Entrance light on stairs had been removed - had to climb stairs in darkness. Continuing issues with cable TV working without resets. No batteries in DVD player. One eye on stove would glow red hot then go out. Had stayed in adjacent unit before but this unit was very dated with old furniture, etc as compared to a the much nicer sister unit. No king or queen beds. No screens on sliding door so unable to get ocean breeze without bugs coming in. One of the sliding doors did not lock - had to use stick in door jamb. Owner did call to apologize for problems with construction issues and had stairs light reinstalled after a few days. Would not stay in this unit again for this price until refurbished.

“We loved it!”

The beachfront access was excellent. Amenities are aging, but the price was acceptable...we do not need fancy sofas and extra Tv's to inflate the beachfront price. We plan to return to the same property next year.

“Great Fall Getaway”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2011

I recently enjoyed a week at Dunescrest West with my sisters, brother and his wife; my husband, two grandchildren and dog joined us for the last two nights. The kitchen is adequately equipped and the living space is comfortable, though I cannot recommend the sleeper sofa (a bit rough for older bodies!) The rockers on the upper deck with a view of the ocean were what we all came for and enjoyed greatly. October is the best time to be at the beach! There are a lot of steps both inside and out - great exercise! This house is on the quiet end of the island away from the commercial area, though shopping is not far when needed. A two mile walk up to the point to the west and a mile or so to the fishing pier to the east. Perfect location!

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Dunescrest West. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your Emerald Isle vacation at this duplex so much. I agree, the location of this property is ideal. Please call us when you begin planning your next gathering at the beach - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great location, house needs serious updating”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2011

The location of the house is perfect! However the house is older and needs some updating. The beds and sofa were very uncomfortable, the kitchen was a bit dingy and there were dirty pots/pans. The bathrooms weren't bad but could use some updating.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Dunescrest West. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed the location of this duplex. I have forwarded your comments and suggestions on to our housekeeping department, as well as the owner of Dunescrest West. Thank you for providing your feedback. I hope you will visit the Crystal Coast again and choose Emerald Isle Realty to host you and your family. We are making advanced reservations for 2012 so please call us to book yours - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great location; decent value.”

Dunescrest West needs to be upgraded. The building needs to be stabilized; the whole thing swayed in the wind.
