“Nice Place to stay”
Place could definitely use a few updates but overall liked it. Reverse floorplan provided great ocean views. Rooms were a good size and not cramped. Beds were comfortable though a little tight for 2 people. Caution if you like to cook. Small frying pans and not enough pots.
If you have any allergies or breathing problems, or if you are sensitive to fungi you make wish to make another selection. pro- has great view of ocean, & is close to beach.

“The rental unit and its location was great, we wish the weather”
As you know rained the whole week, but we enjoyed our stay, the rental unit was clean and the view was fantastic. We did go to a vineyard and enjoyed some of the good North Caroline BBQ. The rental unit had everything we needed, the kitchen, utensils, TV, Internet all worked just fine, the only difficulty we found was the entry door, the lock was a bit difficult to insert the key, and it's location next to the screen door made it more difficult specially trying to get in while it was raining, otherwise no complaint. We want to thank the staff of Emerald Isle for being so gracious for the nice welcome basket, but more importantly, for leaving a wonderful note of condolence, we lost our precious Coco a few days before we departed for North Caroline, it was a good touch, we appreciated it very much. Thanks again. John & Carole Lopez
“Exceeded our expectations! Great "bang for the buck"!”
This is an oceanfront duplex in the narrow part of Emerald Isle. Because of the floor plan (bedrooms and a full bath on the first floor, living area and kitchen on the top floor), the views are fascinating because you are elevated. Be prepared to get some exercise because of the stairs, interior and exterior. The location on Bored Of Education is in the narrow part of Emerald Isle so it is only a two block walk to the sound. Wonderful views of the sound and the marsh (the breeding grounds of the sea) are just a few minutes walk away. The kitchen was well equipped with a dishwasher being an added bonus. Fresh, local seafood is available at various markets close by. We cooked four wonderful seafood dinners that were as good or better than any restaurant around. It is very peaceful and tranquil in this part of Emerald Isle. The sunrise and sunset views are truly fascinating. There are many attractions within a short drives distance. Pine Knoll Shores aquarium, Fort Macon State Park, historic Beaufort, and numerous very good restaurants. We were originally only going to stay four nights but when we were told the weekly rate, we ended up paying less to stay for a week. The only hesitation I would have about this property is if you have problems getting up and/or down stairs. There were a few very minor maintainance issues that were taken care of promptly with a phone call. The Emerald Isle Realty Staff is excellent. If you think exceptional customer service is a thing of the past, talk with Emerald Isle Realty and you will realize that great customer service does still exist and every person I have ever spoken with on the EIR staff is genuinely appreciative to have our business. This was our second time renting through Emerald Isle Realty. We have already booked a week in May, 2013.

“Closer to the ocean than it looks!”
After a death in the immediate family we were looking for a place to get away to provide some perspective and not "deal". This place was perfect on many levels. The inverted floor plan is perfect, with the kitchen and livingroom upstairs where you spend most of your time and can enjoy the view of the ocean and light open floor plan. The bedrooms are downstairs where it is darker and quieter. Very light feeling and in appearance even on a cloudy day. There are no screens on the sliding doors or most of the windows, so enjoying the sounds of the ocean had to be limited to the day as the bugs came in enthusiastically at night. Off season was perfect as our stay was, for the most part, quiet, though some partiers across the street on the weekend were loud and disruptive, especially when they cut through the carport to get to the ocean. The beach was very close and the water still warm enough for a swim, though sitting on the upper deck and watching the dolphins just off shore was a wonderful treat as well. Small issues with appliances such as a knob on the stove that was stripped and the dishwasher didn't work well. The universal remote for the TV had to be reprogrammed (yes, there's an app for that too!) Few roaches but anyone who spends time in NC knows that isn't as much cleanliness as part of the "fauna" that comes with an open house. We brought son and our two dogs with us and knowing kids and pets were welcome made it feel even more relaxing. Very nice and just what we needed!

It was a nice place to stay. Kitchen had everything we could need but an ice cream scoup.Everything dishes etc had to be washed though either other renters didnt wash well and put away or maybe extermator spray was on everything and left a sticky film so we just washed everything in the dishwasher. All in all it was a good place for the price.

“Nice location but in need of repair and updates”
Older property that is in great disrepair and needs a modern update. Overpriced compared to other properties that are in better shape. Would not rent again. Beds not comfortable.

The people at the realty were so nice snd friendly as always. The house was just like the pictures on the website. The location was great. The house is ideal for a small family. The place needs some repairs but is to be expected this late in the season and after the bad storm in the area. We had a great time there.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Bored of Education West. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed this home. I agree, the location is ideal.

“A Gem of a Vacation”
We really enjoyed our stay in Emerald Isle! The house was direct ocean front with spectacular views and easy acess to the beach! Comfortably furnished, the property suited our needs and was indeed relaxing and accomodating! I loved sitting on the upper deck watching the waves roll in and all the beautiful shore birds basking in the sun! The area was more laid back than what we were used to, but we enjoyed the surrounding areas as well as our location! Emerald Island Realty was great to work with and we look foreward to a return visit to the area next year!!! Thank you for a most enjoyable vacation!

“Beautiful views of the ocean”
We had stayed in the other side of this duplex a few years ago and rented it again. We love the views of the ocean from both the living room and the master bedroom. We were also allowed to bring our dogs along, which is a must for us. The half-moon shaped couch in the family room was comfortable for our whole family and the dining room table was spacious enough to have guests. Porches are gated, which is perfect for the dogs. The work space in the kitchen is limited, and the unit could use a bit more kitchen equipment, but overall this place was perfect for our family.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Bored of Education West. It pleases me to know that this home nicely accommodated you and your family. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation and we'll happily reserve Bored of Education West or another property for you - 1-888-832-0140.
