“Turtle Reef was perfect!”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2016

We've stayed at Emerald Isle for years and always at the same cottage. We decided to change things up. We chose Turtle Reef because of the convenient location and private pool. We were very impressed. It was so well equipped and very comfortable. The kids loved the pool. We've already reserved our spot for next year.

“Won't Happen Again”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

Rented for family of 8. We were supplied with a whopping 4 wash cloths. After many phone calls, and going out and purchasing our own, the cleaning lady finally showed up on THURSDAY and got more out of a locked closet in the upstairs bathroom!!! Rental was Sunday to Sunday...owner decided to send pool people on Saturday, July 4th without notification....were unable to use pool entire day. Also had a problem with ants. Couldn't put food in kitchen cabinets. Will not use Emerald Isle Realty again.

Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. I am sorry to hear of the disappointments you encountered during your stay. July 4th is such a fun time in Emerald Isle, but a busy one. I am very sorry that your needs were not met in a more timely fashion. I have submitted your comments to our housekeeping department so steps can be taken to more quickly address and resolve needs like additional linens. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will revisit Emerald Isle for future vacations.

“Great family vacation spot!”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2014

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Turtle Reef. The pool was awesome! and the proximity to the ocean was perfect for us. We were secluded, but near enough to walk to groceries, ice cream, and shops. My grand kids loved this trip, too. We will go back there!!

“Fall at the beach”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2013

We rented Turtle Reef for the month of October, celebrating a big 5-0 birthday! The location was perfect...second row but still great views and sounds of the sea. The street is a quiet cul de sac with very little traffic. My chocolate lab was quite at home and we had plenty of room to entertain friends and family on the weekends. The owners were very friendly and gave us their cell numbers to contact them directly with issues...there were only a few small problems but they were addressed promptly. We will hope to return!

“By far the best rental experience we have had at Emerald Isle!”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2013

We rented the Turtle Reef cottage for the month of September, 2013. From the moment we picked this rental from the Emerald Isle Realty website we received nothing but exemplary service from everyone! After we actually started our stay, a brief ant war ensued, but was quickly taken care of by first the realty company, and the owners. They were very friendly, and made sure we had everything we needed for an amazing month at the beach. We loved that the beach access was directly in front of our cottage, and the grocery store was right around the corner. Of course the pool was a major draw for all our family, and also the way the cottage is set up with 2 rooms downstairs for the "big"kids. I also enjoyed being able to do my laundry right off the kitchen, instead of having to go to a basement. Would love to stay here anytime, but have found September to be a great, affordable time for our whole family. Great beach for kids, for relaxing, and most important to my fishing!

“Nice house. Great location. Wonderful memories.”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

The house is in a perfect location, and the pool deck and tiki bar made for a fun post-beach destination! The walk to the beach was short and easy, and because of the location of the house, we weren't surrounded by hordes of people on the beach. The house itself is nicely furnished, and the floor plan worked well for us. We really did love the pool, and we spent hours at the ping pong table as well. Only improvement I suggest is in the kitchen. There weren't any wine glasses, and the knives weren't sharp--so next year we just plan to take our own, along with our favorite pans. But the truth is, when you are living with a beautiful ocean view and your own private pool, who cares that much about cooking! Loved the house. We've already rented it for next year.

“The location was perfect, the house layout was great, we all had”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2013

We stayed the week of 04 July. The house is located directly across from the beach access. We enjoyed the pool, ping pong table and had family from Swansboro over for a barbeque on the Fourth. There were seven of us in total, 3 couples and a seventeen year old. Every one had a great time.

“Disappointed in the condition of the house”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2012

This beach house was in a great location, however it left much to be desired! It needs work. There was an infestation of ants in the kitchen and they ruined a lot of our food. There were tons of very large palmetto bugs in the garage...they came to spray but did nothing. The pool is nice but very deceiving in the pictures online. It is very small! When it rained, water was coming in the front door!! Upon arrival, the outside was left a mess with water bottles/insect spray cans/sunglasses on the ground around the pool. The kitchen pots and pans were very scratched and needs replaced. Overall, we were very disappointed and would never stay in this house again.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Turtle Reef. I'm very sorry to hear of your disappointments with this home and will pass your feedback on to the owner. I hope you did enjoy the beach and your time in Emerald Isle.

“A real let down.”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2012

This property is in very poor shape and shows absolutely no pride of ownership. A coat of paint and a little elbow grease would really help this dated home but I am not writing to address that. . There were three problems that were safety issues, the flood lights out back that were once attached to the upper deck are now swinging by their wires hitting the side of the house. They are no longer working. There is no easy way to exit the middle or main level. The door does not easily open (it looks like someone used pliers at one point to try to open it) and the two sliders are broken and are very difficult to open. There is a blender in the house that shot flames when we tried to use it. It needs to be thrown away. Most of the kitchen appliances are not fully functioning. The refrigerator does not shut properly, the dishwasher's cleaning arm does not retract after the dishwasher is run. You have to stick your arm in and push it back down to get the lower basket out. The entire kitchen is almost not usable. It does not even include the basic cooking utensils ie: measuring spoons, potholders, serving bowls and baking dishes or even enough dishes to eat on for a day. What is there is not attractive. All the cabinets scream when you open them. I had to use Pam on one set to quiet them. I would have fixed all of them with Pam but was afraid I would damage the hinges. The downstairs pull out couch is an absolute health hazard. Not only is it really disgusting but it is also broken. The large roaches throughout the house were really, really bad in that down stairs room. The child assigned to that bed slept on the floor upstairs.

“Wonderful vacation home!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2012

We had such a lovely week staying at turtle reef. The house is positioned for a perfect view of the ocean not a far walk to the beach and the pool was a nice addition to the house ! Not to mention the weather was impeccable. We also were only a short walk to mini golf and a bike ride to the grocery store !

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Turtle Reef. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time at this home. I agree, the location of Turtle Reef offers convenience to everything: the beach, attractions, shops, and restaurants. I hope you'll revisit soon.
