This home was adequate for a party of 10, however, the kitchen was not well stocked. Bedrooms were nice and the distance from the beach was an added plus. Overall, a good experience!
Each year since 1982, we have been coming to Emerald Isle. We very much like doing business with Emerald Isle Realty. Gull Cottage is so nice for us as our Son in Law rents one side and we rent the other, that way we have siblings, cousins, grandchildren and our dachshund if want, but this time he had his own sitter at home. We like Gull Cottage, have for years, it has a pool which is so nice for us all. I do wish that all the bedrooms had TVs, but that is my only wish. We heard from the owner this year which was very thoughtful. He sent us an e-mail before we left, very nice people.

“We all had fun!”
The realty company was right on top of the things that we needed. We have stayed at Gull Cottage East for five years. The location could not be any better. We did so enjoy the pool with the Grandchildren. Our side of the duplex was not as clean as we are accustomed, I have no idea why. We had to re wash the dishes, the carpet was not as clean as usual and the lamp in the living room did not have a switch, it was broken which I reported to the Realty Company. I think that since we were one of the first in this summer, much had not been done this year. I can say the other years, it was spotless.

Gull Cottage was wonderful. We had a problem with the pool and Emerald Isle Realty sent someone right out to fix it. The TV did not work in the third floor bedroom, but everything else was great. The house was stocked with everything we needed. This is the second time our family rented Gull Cottage and we would come back again. Great house!!

“September with Family”
Stayed here for second year in a row and loved it! Very spacious for the 9 adults we had and was also very dog friendly. Being right on the beach made for great early morning beach walks and only a little way to carry beach chairs, etc. My sister loved the 3rd floor bedroom and its great view of the ocean. The new gas grill was an added surprise and it got a lot of use. As did the new high chairs on the deck walkway that overlooked the ocean. The cottage has been very well maintained and was very clean and ready to use when we arrived. Both Check-in and Check-out with Emerald Isle Realty was outstanding and fast. And the neighbors in Gull Cottage West were very friendly. As always, the week went by way to fast. On the down side, we could not find a phone for local calls and the iron was hidden away in a closet...no big deal for either. In addition, instructions on using the TV and internet would have been helpful, as would a notation on when trash and recycle pick up was. But none of these took away from the great experience we had at the cottage. Looking forward to a return, depending on the economy and if the price is right.

“Great time had by all!”
We have stayed at this duplex for several years with our extended family. This duplex is perfect for our needs as far as sleeping arrangements are concerned. All in all, a great vacation was had by all of our family ranging in age from one year old to 92 years old.
“Well stocked beach house”
We had everything we needed. Thank you for having everything in working order. The gas grill was amazing. The new windows and blinds worked well. The air conditioning and fans were top notch. The only minor complaint we had was there was not enough overhead lighting in the bedrooms and the great room. If you put light kits on the fans, you would be perfect!!!
“Fun In The Sun”
Over all the house was very nice. It could have been cleaned a little better and it would have been nice if there were Tv's in every bedroom. The pool was awesome and the kids & adults had a blast in there. Loved that the house was dog friendly. We would stay in this house again if we were to come back to Emerald Isle.

“Great Vacation Except...”
Myself and family loved the Cottage, Ocean front and furnishings. The common area pool needs to be addressed. We booked this cottage because it is pet friendly. As so did our neighbor. However! the common area(pool deck and swimming pool) is not for pets. We have a small Jack Russel. They had a large Lab. While working for a vet as a woman in her 20's. My wife was bitten rather bad by a lab like they had. So when they had the dog in the pool area (everyday) swimming and playing. We were unable to enjoy that area. I believe that no pets should be allowed in that part of the rental. It is for both families. The inconsideration by our neighbors cost us a very enjoyable vacation. Plus the fact of all that dog hair in the pool. We paid the full price to enjoy the full amenities. However we couldn't. They were not the most social guest and being a nice southern family we said nothing as we didn't want a total flop of a vacation. My advice is put up signs around pool, no pets allowed. Or refund money when a guest doesn't get their full enjoyment of all the property.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review! I'm happy to know that your family enjoyed Gull Cottage East. As for the dog of the guest's staying on the West side, no pets are permitted in the pool. With any duplex, common areas are shared so at a pet friendly duplex, pets are permitted on the decks and in the pool area but not in the pool. We encourage guests to report it to us if they see an animal in one of the pools as this is against the health code. We do manage many homes and a few duplexes which have private pools. Perhaps one of these choices will be a better option for your next vacation so you don't have the concern of someone else's dog being in pool and deck area.
“A great place to be”
Gull Cottage is a great place to stay. The decor is well done and the kitchen is well stocked. We enjoyed both the pool and the ocean. It's a great place for family and friends to spend a week or two. The location is perfect for excursions on the island or off. The house was cleaned and ready for our arrival and we were able to check in as soon as we arrived on the island. There was no downside to our stay. Everything was perfect for our family vacation.
Response from the manager Thank you for letting us know you enjoyed your stay so much! We're happy to hear it.
