“Emerald Isle vac”
My family went on a beach trip to Emerald Isle. The home was located right on the beach. Awesome. The home needs to be updated by cleaning of the walls etc. painting and cosmetic updates.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and for your suggestions. I'm so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your Emerald Isle vacation, and I hope you will revisit us soon.
“Needs a THOROUGH CLEANING!”
Mattresses horrible. Dust dirt hair in floors and corners. Upstairs over 80 degrees. Furniture dirty.
Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with the cleanliness of this home. Our housekeeping department guarantees your satisfaction, so we ask that you report such things during your stay so a staff member can be sent to the home to clean more efficiently. I have submitted a request, so the furniture can be cleaned and the condition of the mattresses can be assessed. Thank you again for your review. Please call us when you begin planning your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Location! Location! Location!”
This was our family's eighth summer staying in the Deckhouse. Obviously we love the ocean view, but we also love how close our cottage is to Flip Flops, the local gift shop/convenient store. Being a large family, we take lots of coolers onto the beach each day. It is so nice to drive only one minute to buy daily ice for our coolers! Neighboring Flip Flops is a brand new Dollar General, extremely nice for gathering last minute forgotten items - anything from sunscreen or medicine, to paper towels or bread, leaving more time for relaxing and enjoying the beach!
The only good thing that can be said about this property is its location: right on the becuatiful ocean. The house is filthy, very poorly maintained with water damage throughout on the walls and ceilings. The appliances are old and barely functioning, the kitchen is so poorly equipped I bought a spatula and some mixing spoons to donate. We definitely did not get value for our money. It was extremely disappointing.
Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. Deckhouse East is an affordable Oceanfront rental and while it doesn't have frills that are included in some other vacation homes, it does provide comfortable accommodations. I am sorry to hear that you didn't find the decor to be appealing and needed some additional supplies for the kitchen. Please let us know when you need something while staying in one of our rentals and we'll happily provide it for you if it is something we have on hand such as mixing bowls or kitchen utensils.
Rental company is excellent. Home works for our large family. Beachfront is great with small children.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Deckhouse East and for your kind compliments of Emerald Isle Realty.

“Killer View, Best Value, Clean and Comfortable”
A very pleasurable experience from check-in to check out. Beautiful view from the deck was well worth the money. The reverse floor plan gave us a great view from inside the cottage as well. It's not a new house, but it didn't have a new house price-tag, either. Appliances are dated but everything worked. We thought it was a great value for the money. We were surprised and very pleased with a washer and dryer as they are not mentioned in the amenities description. It was clean and comfortable and we will stay there again.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Deckhouse East. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed your stay in this duplex and I hope you'll return. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Tired beach house, but great location”
Our group of 4 families (kids aged 7-17) always stay on Emerald Isle for Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. We rent adjoining duplexes (both sides of one house) Oceanfront. The problem is, though we know we'll be doing this, Emerald Isle Realty only allows us to book one month in advance, due to the partial week, and some houses will not rent partial weeks. This leaves us to "get what we can" on april 1st. Such was the case here. We rented both Deckhouse East and West, but did most of the cooking/eating on East (the main cook stayed here). That was a mistake! The refrigerator leaked, and the oven and stove burners were unreliable, plus the dishwasher didn't clean well. Only on the final day did we realize we should have used the other side's newer appliances. Also, the house is tired with 70-80's era paneling, linoleum, counters and bathrooms, as well as yard sale bedroom furniture. There was only one way to access the beach- off the second floor deck which could only be accessed by the side entry door (no sliders from bedrooms or access from primary living area of third floor). Bring your own grill too, although there were grill tools supplied. No sand toys, boogie boards or beach chairs either. The pros were that it was smoke/pet free, had wireless internet and 3 small bathrooms, and had a beautiful oceanfront location. Emerald Isle is a lovely, quiet, family-friendly area, which is why we keep coming back. This house could be nice with updated appliances and furnishings.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. I'm happy to know that you and your family enjoy revisiting Emerald Isle each year and that our beautiful beaches have become a vacation tradition for you. I am forwarding your comments and suggestions for updates and additions to the homeowner. While most vacation homes do not provide beach equipment, we will specify in our property descriptions if such items will be available for your use. We do rate each of our vacation properties based on the age, condition, quality, etc. of furniture and other interior features. Perhaps a property with a silver or gold rating would better satisfy your desires. I'm sorry to hear that you find our policy for partial week and nightly rentals to be cumbersome. Because such rentals occupy two rental weeks, we do restrict the advanced booking of such stays. That said, we do have some properties which will permit a nightly rental to be booked for any time, at any time. Please inquire with our vacation planners and they'll be happy to share availability with you. You can reach us at 1-800-849-3315. Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to assisting you when planning your next Memorial Day weekend or Labor Day weekend stay.
“Loved the private style beach!”
I actually took to vacations to the ocean this year one being to Emerald Isle and the other was North Myrtle Beach. Emerald Isle was so much more relaxing and the beach was like having a private piece of paradise! North Myrtle Beach was to commercial for me and I would definitely pick Emerald Isle over Myrtle Beach next year.
“Beach-front works well for grandkids”
Older beach-front property. Works well for grandkids, which is why we return year after year. Not as nice for the adults, but vacation is all about the kids. One side of a duplex; we rent both sides. It would be great to have a way to go between without going out on the deck and back in, but that is not present.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of Deckhuse East. I'm happy to know that your grandkids enjoy staying in this property. I understand that a family's needs can change over the years. We do manage other duplexes which do have connecting doors. Perhaps switching to a property like this will better serve your family. Again, thank you for your review. We look forward to assisting you and your family when planning your next vacation.
“Beachfront but needs updated & refreshed”
Our overall experience at the beach was wonderful and we'll be looking to return again soon. We wouldn't think twice about beachfront property, but may think about a different property itself. Deckhouse East needs updated and refreshed...a total HGTV Experience. I'm not looking for top-of-the-line appliances or amenties, because it's vacation and the beach is the amenty! But fresh paint - inside and out, updating decor, water damage to ceilings and flooring would give a fresh new look to the location. One thing that really turned us off initially was that the house had not been cleaned at the time of check-in but we were permitted to enter. This was a mistake by EI Realty, in our opinion, because the prior tenants had left it a filty mess -- food, trash, bathroom buildup (and there's nothing more disgusting than a dirty bathroom!) - to the point where we questioned our week's stay - could we walk the house without shoes or take a shower without feeling grossed out? Once your housekeepers were in they did a FANTASTIC job and had that been our first impression our intial disappointment wouldn't have been as it was. By weeks end, we felt right at home and were sad to be leaving. We failed on restuarant selections - so maybe some better recommendations would be helpful. Had some great fresh seafood though from Captain Willis!!!
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Deckhouse East. I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment upon arriving to the duplex. We permit our guests to check in as early as 3:30 p.m. but our housekeeping staff does have until 6 p.m. to complete their work. I am sorry the guests who rented this property the week before you weren't tidy but I'm glad to know our housekeeping staff was able to clean and tidy everything up so you could enjoy your week within the property. As for restaurants in the area, we're happy to give you recommendations. Please call our office while you're staying with us and one of our vacation planners will gladly help with your dining choice - 1-888-832-0140.
