“Perfect beach house!”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2016

This is the perfect rental house for your beach vacation! It is very close to a private, lovely stretch of beach. It has a panoramic view from the great room. All the furnishings, decor, and finish materials are high-quality and beautiful. It has a pool and a spacious deck. We sat on that deck every morning at sunrise enjoying the sounds of the ocean and every night, watching lightening or shooting stars.

2nd time we have rented this house. We all love it and plan on returning a third time in 2018, It is a very comfortable space, well equipped, so close to the ocean. The shower by the pool is everyone's place to shower as you can view the ocean while cleaning up.

Lots of things were damaged and the kitchen was unorganized and lacking the necessary dishes for 12 people. Very disappointing.

“Absolute Heaven”

Very nice location. Nice house. Very well equipped. One week is not long enough to enjoy the entire area.

“Great location”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2014

Circle of Friends looks better in person than in the pictures. Decorating was very nice, bathrooms, bedrooms and living areas were wonderful. Only area that needed improvement was the kitchen - could have used new cabinets & appliances. But everything in the kitchen worked well. Pool and deck were great. My group would have booked it again for next 2015 but it was already reserved.

Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed your stay, and I am happy to let you know that the kitchen in Circle of Friends has been completely redone. During your next stay you will enjoy freshly repaired and painted cabinets, new granite countertops, a new sink and faucet, new stainless steel appliances, new lighting, and a new pantry. New wood ceiling have been added in the living and dining rooms, carpet on the spiral staircase was replaced with wood, the cupola area now has a storage cabinet and desk, as well as new flooring and a wood ceiling. Thank you again for your helpful comments. Please call us to book your next stay at Circle of Friends - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great location, but kitchen needs updating and cleaning!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

This was a great location and we loved the layout of the house! The bedrooms were updated and very nice, and beds were comfortable. The pool was small, but great! The kitchen, while well stocked, was totally unorganized and had an outdated and unclean feel about it. The ice maker was broken and the wood all around it was broken. The house in general was not very clean; the ceiling fans were covered in dust, there was lots of dust behind the nightstand as I went to plug in my charger, and my little niece's feet were black at the end of our first afternoon. Apparently, the floors had not been mopped since the last guests. Don't count on anyone sleeping on the daybed, as it is very uncomfortable. Our bedrooms stayed cool, but the rest of the house was difficult to keep cool, and the air conditioner was controlled so that the temperature couldn't be lowered. It was uncomfortable to cook due to the temperatures in the evenings. I would love to go back to this house if it were properly cleaned, cooled, and the kitchen put in better repair.

Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am happy to let you know that the kitchen in Circle of Friends has been completely redone! The recent refurbishment included cabinet repairs - painting and new hardware, countertops have been replaced with granite, a new sink and faucet, appliances were upgraded to stainless, a pantry has been added, and light fixtures were replaced. Additionally, the ceiling and beams in the living and dining rooms are now all wood, the carpet on the spiral staircase has been replaced with wood, and the cupola area has a new wood ceiling, new flooring, and a storage cabinet and desk were added. We cannot wait for your to experience and enjoy these repairs and upgrades, so please call us to reserve your week at Circle of Friends - 1-888-832-0140.

“Circle of ocean views”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

Our family had a wonderful time together at this cozy yet big cottage style of home. It had everything and more that we needed. The location Was ideal and views of the ocean everywhere from the house could not have been achieved in the newer 2 stories houses.

“Best vacation ever !!!”

We met for our Mothers 80th birthday spent the week enjoying the wonderful house (Circle of Friends) and the beautiful beach. We had plenty of room in the house and the beach was not crowded we were able to spread out and enjoy the wonderful weather

“Fantastic panoramic view of the ocean!”

Very comfortable for both families. The views are spectacular.

“We love Emerald Isle and Emerald Isle Realty”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2011

We have come to Emerald Isle 5-6 times over the years and love it!!! I have been to many different beach areas in the Carolina's and this is by far my favorite. I have also used all the main realty companies on Emerald Isle and have been happiest with this one by far. We had a problem for the first time ever with the company but they were very quick to resolve it and so very gracious about everything. I would definitely rent with this company again!! About this particular home, it is in a great location and the access to the beach is wonderful- only a short staircase away. If you're travelling with anyone elderly this would be a nice house as all the living is on one floor. The kitchen is a bit old and oven is tiny though so don't plan on huge meal preparation. There were plenty of utensils, etc... The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice and everything was clean. The only thing I will say is that this is not a house for a large group. We had 14 people (7 kids, 7 adults) and it was not big enough. I think with 10 it would have been perfect. The rooms were a bit too small to put additional air mattresses on the floor (although we did manage to wedge them in). The biggest thing I want to point out is that while the pool is described as "oceanfront", this really is not the case. The pool is on the ground level on the side of the house with a dune in front of it. This means you cannot see the ocean while lounging in the pool area and you also cannot sit on the main deck (2nd level) and see the pool. This was not ideal for our family wants/needs. That being said, the pool was nice (although small), it was clean and there was adequate seating around the pool area. The realty company had someone come to clean the pool mid-week which was nice. There was no need to pay xtra for heating the pool as the water was quite warm already.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Circle of Friends. This home does offer a unique floor plan and it would be idea for groups who wish to have all areas on one level. The occupancy for a 5 bedroom, such as Circle of Friends, is 10. As you mentioned, Circle of Friends will comfortably house 10 people. Please let us know who is coming with you when you call to reserve your vacation home so we can find a property which will be large enough for you. We discourage the use of air mattresses as they pose a concern should there be a fire or other emergency which causes you to exit an unfamiliar home quickly. I'm sorry you felt the pool was misrepresented. I'll look into better describing its location. I am pleased to know that your family enjoyed the Oceanfront location of the home and your time at the pool. Please let us know when you'd like to revisit Emerald Isle. We'd love to have you as our guests again. Our vacation planners are anxious to assist you in planning so give us a call, 1-888-832-0140.
