“A great vacation”
Everything was just like pictured. Great little cottage for my family of 5, it was cozy,on the days it rained the boys played cards that were provided along with board games.The cottage is in great location. While the cottage is in Emerald Isle we drove 30 min to Morehead City. Oceanfront which I can't leave out & the price great as well!! We will definitely be going back!!
“Quaint and relaxing”
I liked the privacy and being right on the beach. Need better A/C upstairs. Bathrooms need some work as well. Maybe a larger T.V. in the living area
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and for your suggestions for improvements. I hope you will vacation with us again soon!
Cute oceanfront cottage was adequate for our needs. Excellent service...we were one pack of linens short upon arrival and someone brought them over 15 minutes after I called. Friendly and helpful staff, check in was fast and convenient with the drive through at office. This cottage does lack a washer and dryer and from the outside shower, you can see above the side walls to the neighbors sitting on their deck and vice versa so this limited our use of it. Some of the pots and pans could stand to be replaced. Overall this home is a great value despite the before mentioned, its all about location in a quiet neighborhood, ocean breezes from the deck and being a few steps to the beach!!
“Very nice modest home”
We just wanted a beachfront home with 3 bedrooms. This was very comfortable and convenient. For the price and location - this was a great value for oceanfront.

“Better outside than in...”
The location of this house is amazing but the inside leaves lots to be desired. The kitchen has limited cooking equipment as in there were about five very used frying pans but little else. The upstairs bedroom is hot the air barely makes it up there and the fan had so much dust and dirt on it I had to clean before turning it on because the air conditioning does not get upstairs without it! The outside shower is dangerous...it is so low that one of our group hit his head on a beam (that should have warning tape on it!) and was knocked down. But again the beach front location can't be beat but for what it costs the owners could work on the inside.
“I visit was unique.”
The cottage has a very steep drive and makes parking more than one car difficult. The outside of the cottage needs some cosmetic updates...loose boards on deck and stairs, painting around bottom of cottage, brush and overgrowth of bushes need to be trimmed, etc. The inside was more up-to-date and the air conditioning worked well considering it was oceanfront; however the upstairs did tend to get very warm. A lack of Washer and dryer was not a huge issue, but it would have been nice. Enclosing the bottom of the cottage may be a good future idea...create more room and add laundry area. We enjoyed our week all in all, but probably would not rent this cottage again.

“Beautiful oceanfront area”
We enjoyed our week on the ocean, but there were several problems with the cottage that needed attention. We sent an e-mail to Emerald Isle Realty with a list of the problems we noticed. Waiting for a reply.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Gone Coastal. I haven't seen an email come through from you but will certainly be on the look out for it.
“Disappointing house, beautiful location”
Overall, this house is just what i said. Overwhelmingly disappointing from the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out. Upon entering, it smelled like a well used ashtray mixed with a film of mildew and it didnt get any better from there. The furniture is fine I guess, but there are serious dust balls underneath the couches and in corners. The small carpet underneath the table is warped in the corners and taped down with duct tape. (Unsuccessfully) The kitchen hasnt been updated in over 40 years and I was leery of even opening some cabinets. The pots and pans had visible rust on the bottom and the colander had dried up corn silk in it. Yuck. One of the bunkbeds had several large cockroach-type bugs in it, but they didnt come back after I removed them. Thankfully we just moved him to a different bed. The loft is a sauna even with the air conditioner on and the beds are rather uncomfortable. The view was beautiful and I was very happy to have been able to stay right on the beach. It was very convenient with small children. The deck was ok, but there was no umbrella or shade of any type, so there was no way to get out of the sun at all unless we went inside. Lastly, I got an overall rash from the linen service at the rental and had to wash all the linens and towels before I used them. Note: no washer/dryer or dishwasher, so this made it tough. When asked to review this, the company mentioned that this is someone's house and I should try to be respectful. Many apologies to the owner, but I have few nice things to say. The house needs an overhaul and a good clean. Unfortunately I doubt I will ever be in Emerald Isle again and this is the memory of the house we are left with. Its a shame because the beach is really nice and the rest of the houses seemed fine. And frankly, we didnt get this house cheap. It was just a cheap house. Suggestion: steer clear.
the house location is perfect but unfortunately the house itself is below standards. There were bugs in the master bedrrom, the fans so old not safe to use (hooked up with extension cords) and rusty. No dishwasher/ washer/dryer makes it very difficult - not something you want on a vacation. No internet service also in this day and age makes this home outdated - again a difficulty no one wants on vacation (even though there is a service provider on the island, their service was done on Ocean Dr so had to go to the rental agency to get service - again had to interrupt beach time - since the agency runs w/ standard business hours). The house inside needs to be painted, bedspreads replaced; upgrades as mentioned. Outside the stairwell is not safe (boards on side of house rotted away leaving no protection against falling.

“Home away from home.”
We arrived and the house was hot. It cooled fast when the air was turned on. It was in the upper 80's and 90's when we stayed.The upstairs bedroom was great. It didn't get hot unless you closed the vent upstairs and left the fans off for long period of time. The Kitchen was well stocked except for a dishwasher. this would be an added bonus since you are on vacation and do not plan to wash dishes all week. So we bought paper products mostly so we wouldn't have to. Also it does Not have a washer or dryer. This was not such a big deal for us, it may for others. We brought along My mom and dad there very first trip oceanfront. They loved it and so did our fur-babies. This home is pet friendly which is a plus. The house was very clean. The view from the upstairs was awsome. The room with bunk-beds is crowed for two teen girls. Also the beds are in need of some repair. I wouldn't let them sleep on the top bunks. The deck outside is Superfantastic and we stayed outside most of the time. I loved that the home felt like home. We will be staying again. Emerald isle made our vacation better.
