“Cute little house”
My husband and I rented this house for our honeymoon/vacation and we brought along our two dogs. I loved the kitchen and it was very well equipped with most anything you would need to cook. We didn't end up having any neighbors so we could lock the fence and have the dogs out on the porch with us. The view is amazing, I've always loved ocean front rentals. I would recommend this house for anyone with pets. When we arrived the house was clean and tidy.
“Pet friendly, great view!”
We enjoyed our stay again this year at Bodiford East. We were glad the second bedroom had been updated from the previous year with new beds and fresh paint. The carpet/rugs in both bedrooms could use to be replaced as they are showing wear and stains. It would also be nice if the bed comforters were laundered after each guest.(We always bring one from home to use) The view is fantastic and a very short walk to the beach. We were thrilled with the new kitchen updates in the Bodiford West that our neighbors showed us and hope that the East side will receive a new kitchen face lift in the future with a dishwasher too! Our golden retriever loves coming with us and everyone at Emerald Isle Reality is so accommodating. We look forward to next fall! Thanks again for a great week!
Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoy revisiting Emerald Isle and Bodiford East each year. The owners of the Bodiford duplex have been hard at work with refurbishments and replacements and I'm happy to let you know that you will see a newly remodeled kitchen with a dishwasher when you arrive to Bodiford East for your next vacation. Pictures will be posted soon and certainly you may call us if you have any questions - 1-888-832-0140. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Stayed on West side very nice, We will come back. Everything we needed. Only down fall is the Eastside family. Shouldn't rent to a duplex if you don't like Kids and Dogs. Stay home then !!! Besides a great time...
“Great week at the beach”
Unit is same as last few years. This was about our 20th uear in Bodiford. Jealous that West side now has a dishwasher, the one thing we have asked for every year. Folks in the West side had two yappy dogs that barked much of the time when left in the unit while family was down on the beach.
Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. You will be pleasantly surprised when you revisit Bodiford East as the kitchen has been remodeled and a dishwasher installed. Pictures will be posted on our website soon and please call us if you have any questions - 1-888-832-0140.
“Home away from Home”
Cant say enough good things about this place. The owners are doing a great job with the upkeep. Emerald isle reality is also doing a great job maintaining this property. My family and I love this place. Its so simple and has everything you need for a wonderful time on the beach. My wish is that other tendents would take better care of the house. The bathroom was updated in 2010 and now there is a hole in the bath tube. A lot of the utensil, dishes and pots and pans are missing, and if you bring a dog and they are shedding please take time out to vacuum off the couch before you leave( in the closet in 2nd bedroom). Its not cool to sit on the couch and be covered in dog hair. Also don't be a slob. pick your trash up around the deck before you leave. If you cant take care of this wonderful place then go some where else. One more thing pillows do not go into the recycle can. We had to pick those up when the trash company tossed them on the ground. Other than that we will keep coming back. Thanks for the wonderful time and keep up the good work.
“Low standard of cleanliness!”
Pros: Great location on the beach, literally steps to the ocean. The house has basically everything you need, minus a dishwasher. Cons: At first glance it looked ok, but the longer we were in the house, we soon realized it was cruddy. We took pictures with my iphone of dirty toilet, moldy shower curtain, walls splattered with coke or coffee, filthy wood trim/doors, broken MBR blinds, no lamp shade on lamp in living room, etc. We went to realty co. and spoke to the Director of Guest Services who sent a cleaning service out within an hour. I also mentioned the place didn't have a mop or functioning vacuum. They "cleaned", but the place needs a serious deep cleaning. We left still with no mop or functioning vacuum. I never dared to go barefoot in the house. From past reviews, this place has a problem with cleanliness which I chose to ignore. Don"t!

We enjoyed our time at Bodiford East. The view is awesome and the home is very cozy. The beds were very comfortable too. My only complaint is that the kitchen was not very clean and the dishes and the utensils were dingy.

This was our first time to Emerald Isle and we loved it! We've been to other beaches on the east coast and this was by far the best. Very relaxing and quiet and close to shopping and restaurants. If your looking for night life, this is not for you. If you want beach, sun, fishing and lots of relax time, it's perfect! As other reviewers have said, the beach house is not fancy, but it has all the necessities and was very comfortable. It was very clean on the surface, but could have had more attention paid to detailed cleaning for my taste. The best part for my husband and I was the fact our 2 four legged children (dogs)could come with us. They enjoyed the beach as much as we did! Overall, it was a great vacation and we look forward to coming back next year.
Response from the manager I'm so happy to know that you were able to enjoy a week in Emerald Isle and that it was a good time for the whole family. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and please come again soon. We are already making reservations for next year so give us a call to make yours - 1-888-832-0140.
“Much needed beach trip to a wonderful house”
I just want to say that overall, our week at the beach was wonderful and much needed. The home was perfect for the two of us. We got really lucky that our neighbors were wonderful, and we hardly heard them. Staying at a home right on the beach was wonderful because we didn't have to lug our things to a public beach access. The view was wonderful as well, and we really enjoyed the deck. It was nice to have a partition between the east and west halves, kinda giving us a sense of privacy. The beach itself was private, not like Myrtle beach. It was off season, but I do believe that it still would have quiet in full season. It was nice to not have to clean up much since we had linen service. The house, for the most part, was cleaned well. I even wanted to take me shoes off in the bathroom, which for me is a big deal. The biggest problems we ran in to were the guest bedroom being dirty, and the cable was fuzzy for most of the week. If we had other people staying with us, we would have called the office to have someone come out to clean the guest room. There was sand all over both beds, like the cleaning service didn't even touch them. The guest bathroom was clean. The cable service was out one day, we called the office, and it was fixed the same day. However Time Warner Cable was having problems with reception for most of the week, which was disappointing. I'm glad they had a dvd player! We would rent here again for sure!

We enjoyed a wonderful spring break at Bodiford East. We found the house to be clean,well equipped and very comfortable. Thanks for the Wi-Fi. It was a true lifesaver for our 14 year old. The view from almost everywhere in the house is amazing. We loved the rocking chairs on the deck. Thanks for being pet friendly. Our golden retriever loves coming to EI, too! We would definitley consider renting again!
