“Jimanik West-Emerald Isle”
I have rented this house twice now. This property has 5 bedrooms and three full baths and sits ocean front. The double decks are great. I particularly like the location of the house because I can get to the food store and other Emerald Isle attractions in less than 10 minutes and still have a remote quiet beach location. It's also 30 minutes from Morehead City and Beaufort which makes day trip excursions easily attainable.
This place would be perfect if it wasn't for the horrible smell. As I sit here writing this review I have a sheet on the couch because I just felt skeevy, my hoodie is over my nose because the entire unit smells of cat pee. Now I don't own a cat but if you have ever walked into a home that has one cat urine is one that sticks in your nose. I went to the food lion down the street and bought 48 dollars worth of candles, glade plug-ins, and glade spray and I can still smell it. The urine is physically making me ill. I can't eat nor have an appetite. The entire rug needs to be replaced, this is a smell that the realty company will never fix in a day. They were very nice and sent the house cleaners out again and they sprayed a deodorizer on the carpet but said it was so horrible that they called the carpet cleaner company, he came out and said he could smell it before we opened the door. I looked forward to this vacation for months and the smell has just ruined the entire week because it's unfixable :_(
“Rain rain go away”
Our first visit to EI and we enjoyed it, other then the rain, the rental car breaking down, and then the car accident with the new rental. The house was nice bigger then the description and very well stocked kitchen. The linens provided was a nice thing, but could have been softer. Bleach does that. The beach itself was very nice wide and clean, but couldnt find many sharks teeth. Love the fact that our little dogs could be with us. The people staying next door were really respectfull of our dogs with theres, but they did find fleas. Ours was not a problem. would like to come back and stay again.
Response from the manager It sounds as though you earned some relaxation and I'm so sorry to hear of the trials you experienced with your rental car. I am happy that you found all you needed at this home to enjoy your vacation. Thankfully, this duplex was inspected for fleas and none were found on either side. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next stay and we'll happily reserve Jimanik West for you again - 1-888-832-0140.
Our family rents the entire duplex and Jimanik West is perfect for us! We have many family members coming and going during the week and there is always room for all! Emerald Isle Realty goes out of its way to take care of any problems that might occur...We love the location of the house...the boardwalk(that takes us directly to the beach) is great(especially for water ``fights!)..and has a wonderful handicapped ramp.. as is the porch..We especially fight over the wonderful swing in the middle of the porch!...We tend to cook in most nights and the kitchen is well stocked..We also love the free internet and the tv`s in each bedroom(at least the kids do!!) Our family has rented Jimanik West for about 10 years and we always look forward to seeing the yearly improvements!..It is our home away from home one week out of the year!
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Jimanik West and for your continued loyalty to this property and Emerald Isle Realty. It pleases me to know that you have found your home away from home and enjoy revisiting Emerald Isle each year. Please call us to reserve your same time, same place for 2013 if you haven't done so already - 1-888-832-0140.
“Bugs & Could Be Cleaner”
Great location, nice place, but the cleaning, not so good. We had bugs in the kitchen, sure did look like roaches to me, Emerald Realty sent an exterminator, we also requested it be thoroughly cleaned, what we got was a half hearted attempt to appease us. Emerald Realty thinks highly of there customer service, but I still don't see any evidence there's much to their claims. They have a smooth running operation, but there customer service is about providing you with whatever they can get away with.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Jimanik West. It pleases me to know that you did enjoy this duplex and its location. I am sorry to hear that you were bothered by bugs during your stay. Palmetto bugs and the like are prevalent in our area due to our dense vegetation, but our properties are treated regularly to keep such pests at bay. I'm happy we were able to schedule a spray of the property to alleviate the issue. I am sorry you were disatisfied with the level of customer service we provided. My notes indicate a houskeeping crew was dispatched to the property to clean up after the exterminator treated the property and we didn't have any complaints from you after this. Please let us know of such disappointments while you're here so we can work to rectify the issue. Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you and your family will revisit Emerald Isle and allow Emerald Isle Realty another opportunity to serve as your host. Please call us when you begin planning your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
This our 25th year at the Crystal Coast as a family. I think there were 49 of us scattered in 4 houses rented from EI Realty & a few in a motel.
“Easy access to the beach and beautiful views”
Jimanik West was exactly as shown on the realty web site. The water was beautiful and the view, including the dolphins that moved up and down the beach daily, was breathtaking. I would definitely stay there again.
What a wonderful week we had in Jimanik West..We loved the duplex(as we have for the past 4 years!). We had family in the other side so that made it really special. The location is ideal(waterfront), the porch with chairs and wonderful swing(looking out at the ocean:)) was great.....Loved having 5 bedrooms and 3 baths that were super comfy, though we`d love comfy bunk beds twin/double combo in the twin room for our fast growing number of grandchildren:):):)..The kitchen was organized beautifully and had just about everything we (as a cooking family with a chef who is a son!!)needed...Furniture is really comfortable in the kitchen/family area...very condusive to games at night and plenty of sitting room..The big screen tv was enjoyed by all.....and the kiddies loved having a tv in their room....The grill downstairs was pretty grungy (understandible with many renters) but after a quick cleaning it was great!....Love the easy access(to the very close beach and ocean) with both wheelchair ramp and stairs..Plenty of room for all our beach ``stuff``.....REALLY loved having ALL linens provided(towels that we washed during the week as they needed it!)...We did not know about this wonderful service until we arrived...but what a wonderful surprise it was!!!!!...Really like the covered porch ,though when it gets rains hard it tends to have standing water close to the doors)....Cannot wait until our week next July! Do hope the owners enjoy it as much as we do.(Just not during our week!!!!!!).The owners have even written us(a really nice touch) about upgrades, like new furnishings (and fantastic wireless!!! We love it!!!!
“Great house & Great Family fun!”
We love staying at Jimanik. Our cousins from California stay in Jimanik East. The house accomidates our needs at a good price. Several of our family lost jobs & income this year. With today's economic situation, we almost cancelled our trip this year. We did not want to risk losing the house as we always do same time same place system. Location is great. Amenities we enjoy at the house: Large porch / deck at the Ocean with Rocking Charis & Swing (love it), We like it that all bedrooms have a TV. We love the Wide Screen HD TV in the Living Room. On the liked least list this year is that important parts of house were in disrepair as follows: Outside shower downstairs which we like to use was broken so no one could use it. Swing on porch needs new screws in it as wood is coming off & loose screws scratch you. Picnic table on porch needs repair as we were afraid it would fall down Stove in Kitchen is bad. Only 2 burners worked. My husband worked on it some & got another burner working but it was difficult to cook. Suggestion: New some wine glasses please!! Can buy them for 1.00 at the pottery stores. We really like the Ramp!!! Got some old people who need it!!
Response from the manager Thank you for your comments. Jimanik is a great place to stay. I've alerted Maintenance and Housekeeping to the list you commented about and we will certainly get those items taken care of. Take Care and we look forward to seeing you in 2010!
“Great Week at the Beach”
This summer we were lucky enough to spend 2 weeks at Emerald Isle -- Jimanik West. The duplex is comfortable and well provisioned. The rooms are bright and inviting. The beds were great. The unit has dual controls for the air-conditioning -- making the upper level comfortable. The porches are wonderful--we used the rockers and the swing a lot. I liked the linen service -- clean linens supplied for the second week as well as a cleaning. The IT man from Emerald Isle helped us set up WiFi. The outside shower head needed cleaning and a new connector. It would be nice to have a clean grill. We had to buy a little grill. We will return next year.
