- Very Good
The cottage and the fine service that Emerald Isle Realty provides in managing it, is first rate. It is neat and clean with comfortable furniture and beds. Utilities in good working order. WiFi, TV, DVD all on-site for the odd rainy day or evening entertainment, along with a varied collection of books and games.. New decks and steps this year (2015) are models of safety and professional construction. The beach is one of North Carolina's finest. A minor suggestion, The screen doors front and back are not up the standard of the rest of the house. Should be replaced. To summarize our satisfaction is to simply report that every summer when we check out we turn in a reservation for the next year "Same place, Same week" . A
“My stay was great”
Was good to stay there. The shower area could need a little bite more cleaning and the shower doors could need a little maintenance, other then that I would stay again
“Excellent Service - Well Worth the Money”
We took advantage of a promotion offering 7 nights for the price of 4, choosing half of a duplex that is not in the top tier. It was an ocean front location and, for the money, was an excellent value. The service provided by your company was, once again, excellent as well. We work part-time during our vacations and need a reliable internet connection. Last year, the connection often went down and your company took special steps to have that problem corrected. This year, when making our reservation, we asked if the modem and router would be in our half of the duplex. Cheryl (sp?) had someone go to the duplex to make sure this was so, in case we needed to reboot/restart the system. We appreciated this special effort very much. When we arrived at our duplex, we discovered that another family had just moved into our side. They thought they were supposed to be on the "other" side, but their key only opened the door to our side. Turns out there were multiple key problems which I'll omit. We called your office and Heather took the call. In less than an hour, Doug was at our building, changing locks on both sides and handing each family a new set of keys. This was excellent service, the best! I came to the office the next day to thank Heather and Doug personally and hope this review helps to recognize what they did for us. The easy pick-up and drop-off of keys is also appreciated. We plan to stay at Emerald Isle again next year and will definitely make reservations with Emerald Isle Realty.
We had a wonderful stay at redfish/bluefish east. The house was clean and comfortable. I would love to see an enclosed outdoor shower added and it would have been perfect.
location and beach access great,View is great, Shower plumbing is terrible. No water pressure, Kitchen water smells bad, House had moldy smell.
Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed your time at this home and I agree, the view and beach access are great! I have forwarded your comments to our maintenance and housekeeping departments so they can look into a resolve for the plumbing issue and mildew smell of the home. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next trip to Emerald Isle as we'd love to again have you as our guest - 1-888-832-0140.
“Had a wonderful visit, marred only by condition of bath & showre”
This was our fourth year in this delightful duplex on the beach. Fully eqaipped including cable TV and wireless access. Direct access to the beach and grand views in all kinds of weather. However, the shower/tub is an accident waiting to happen. entering involves stepping over the high side onto a slippery tub botton, with nothing to hold to support stepping in or sitting down.The sliding shower doors are off the runners and frequently stick. The shower head and fixtures are old and "grungey." Despite these factors, we have already signed up for 2013 along with our family who signed up for the adjoining side. Looking forward to our visit, hoping that the owners will have made significant improvements to the safety and attratieveness of the bath situation
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Redfish/Bluefish East. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed a great vacation and plan to return next year. I have passed your comments on to the owner so the bath situation can be addressed. Thank you for this feedback and please call us if we can be of additional assistance as you continue to plan your 2013 vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Problematic from the start”
The home had mold/mildew growth coming out of the vents. While the management company cleaned the vents the unit still smelled when the air conditioner ran. Then halfway through our stay Palmetto Bug/American cockroaches started coming out of the cushions of the couches. The management company sent a pest control company to spray. Overall I was unhappy with the stay and really expressed that to the management company that this home needed serious extermination and the ducts from the a/c to be cleaned before anyone should stay in the place. While the beach access was incredible I would not stay at the unit again.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Redfish/Bluefish East. We really appreciate you letting us know of your concerns during your stay so we could take steps to correct the problems. Fortunately, when reinspected after being cleaned, the ducts within this home have no buildup. There also haven't been any further reports of bugs within the home since your stay so I trust the extermination was successful. 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 if we can be of assistance as you plan your next vacation to the Crystal Coast - 1-888-832-0140.
“Adequate house as advertised”
It's a good basic house. Unlike other similar (1-story) houses we've stayed in, the house does not have a view of the beach from the porch (the dunes block the view), and there is no observation deck. The queen mattress really needs to be replaced, but the doubles are better.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Redfish/Bluefish East. I agree, this home does provide basic, clean, and affordable Oceanfront accommodations. I will pass on your suggestion to replace the Queen bed to the owner. Thank you for your feedback. Please call us when you're ready to book your 2012 vacation to the Crystal Coast. 1-888-832-0140.
“What a great little house for the money!”
We took advantage of the nick of time booking discount to turn our one week vacation into 2. Red Fish was a perfect house for our family of 4. A clean, well-equipped cozy house that is a steal for an ocean front property. We loved it and will go back again if given the chance.
The week my friends, Bill and Diane Mark, stayed at RF/BF East couldn't have been more perfect. The cottage is like our "vacation home" since we have stayed there many times. As usual, Emerald Isle Realty was great. Love the linen service and the after-stay cleanup. Feels more like 'vacation'!! Since 'Igor' was 'out there somewhere', the ocean was rough a couple of days, but if nice to see it in many ways...rough and calm. Fishing started picking up when we left. Even the dolphins swam by to let us admire. Hopefully will be back next year in the fall. Alice Gobble Wilson, NC
