Reviewed 17 Oct 2013

Great bicycle rides, good proximity to beach, and good food at local reataurants...but the unit could be better maintained. Window sills dirty, litter outside, and some cockroaches. Sliding doors and some windows were missing their screens. With the weather being amenable to having them open, we couldn't do so. Lastly, rear of unit overlooks a Dollar General store.

Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your vacation experience at Happy Place West. I agree, this duplex does provide good proximity to the beach, as well as fantastic views. The Dollar General was recently added to that area of Emerald Isle and provides a quick stop so vacationing families can spend more time on the beach rather than trekking back and forth to the heart of Emerald Isle for quick shopping. Thank you again for your feedback. Please call us if we can assist you in planning your next family vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

This was our first stay at happy place west. It was everything we imagined it would be. House was decorated very nice, very cozy. Kitchen well stocked, and house very clean, everything you would need for a week or longer stay. The pool and hot tub is a wonderful addition. Overall it was a great place to stay and in a great location. Will deff stay there again. Thanks for the great memories. The Poole family.

“Geat Fun”

We love Happy Place West. It was our second time to this cottage and we loved it just as much as the first. It is clean, attractive, and has everything you need. We really enjoyed the new sectional and again found the beds very comfy. Thanks again for a great vacation. Coleman

“cute but not clean”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

The house was decorated very well. Very cute and beachy theme. However, the carpet was absolutely filthy. I know it's a pet-friendly home, but we have a 16 month old and I was horrified by how black with dirt her feet would be after walking on the carpet. It had not been vacuumed well at all either. There were whole crackers on the floor and in the sofa cushions. The kitchen was very well stocked, which was nice. I wish the pool had been on the back or the other side of the home. On the east side it got very little sun and the water was cold with all the rain that week.The beds and the sofa also need to be replaced. Very uncomfortable. We have rented from emerald isle realty for years, but I would not rent this home again.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Happy Place West. I'm sorry to hear that the cleanliness of this home didn't meet your expectations when you arrived and I'll certainly pass your feedback on to our housekeeping department. Our housekeepers do guarantee their work so should you ever arrive again and be dissatisfied, please let us know and we'll happily send another cleaning crew to clean the property more efficiently. I'll also pass your feedback on to the owner of this duplex, though this is the first mention of the beds and furniture which we've received. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention so we can look into it. We've been fortunate to have your loyalty throughout the years and hope to continue hosting your family vacations. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next trip to Emerald Isle - 1-888-832-0140.

“Relaxing & rejuvenating”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2012

When we arrived we could barely contain our excitement,grabbing our bags and make the mad dash up the stairs to get in your swim suit and head to the beach/pool. Each person claiming a room, we hurriedly changed and headed to the beach. The access was just across the street and when you reach the highest point, you have this breathtaking view of the ocean. This year the water was absolutely the most beautiful I have ever seen it. The shades of blue/green..unbelievable. As we are sitting on the beach, we see a pod of dolphins playing in the surf. We look forward to seeing them every morning. The pool was so refreshing after spending the morning sunning, swimming, people watching...I loved the location of the house, short drive to either downtown EI or Morehead City/Beaufort for shopping. It did take us a few days to get used to the reverse layout, but with the living quarters on top, you could see the ocean and the sound. Absolutely beautiful. The house was clean, kitchen well stocked, and after a night of driving all nite, it was a pleasant surprise to not have to make a bed..they had already been made up...we just had to climb in. The only downside to Happy Place was the stairs, but hey, what did we expect. We did have to call the maintenance dept for leaking pool filter, they were there within the half hour. Emerald Isle Realty was great to deal with for reservations, express check-in and check-out. However, the check out part, we were dreading, we didn't want to leave the beautiful island. I will definately be staying at an EIR property again...hopefully sooner than later and yes, quite possibly Happy Place West. Thanks you EIR for making my vacation stress free!!

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Happy Place West. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time in Emerald Isle and found this home and all which it offers to meet your expectations. Thank you also for your kind compliments of Emerald Isle Realty. We'd love the opportunity to again serve as your host while you vacation on the Crystal Coast so please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Relaxing Stay”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2011

The house was great, but has way to many steps. We did have a relaxing stay.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Happy Place West. I agree, this is a great house and has so much to offer with the pool and upgraded interior. Certainly, we're happy to find you a home with fewer steps for your next stay if that is your preference. Please call us - 1-888-832-0140.

I had a great time at happy place. I loved the house. It was very well equiped. The pictures in the book don't do it justice. Perfect size and great location. The pool was also very clean and user friendly.

“Great place to stay - Emerald Isle feels like home”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

Happy Place West was a great place, great location. For a dog friendly rental the place was very clean. The pool was great but maybe needs more chairs around the pool. The kitchen was well stock except needs a grater and grilling tools. My family really enjoyed this house so much we have reserved for next year. There are lots of stairs but this is only a problem when unpacking. Overall - I say excellent.
