“The house makes the vacation perfect”
I have reviewed this home in the past and it still rates with me as number 1. It is well located, well furnished. convenient to all activities. There enough beds to accommodate our needs.
“Island Time West one of best”
We are a group of six women,who usually travel to the Outer Banks in September after the rates go down. This unit was one of the best we have rented. Not only had it been recently updated and was lovely, the kitchen was better equipped than most and it had enough bedrooms that everyone could have their own privacy.
Every thing was wonderful. The children did leave over $100 woth of wee games that you could not locate. We were dissapointed in this. Every thing else was above excellant
“Great family vacation home.”
My family of three generations have enjoyed Emerald Isle vacations for 20 plus years. We meet with other families from our college days. As our family grew we changed vacation homes to accommodate our needs. Our family comes from three different states, and all with great anticipation for a terrific week in this wonderful location, suitable for all ages of entertainment. Lately we have not been too pleased with the delay of getting into the unit we booked. We use to be able to take possession at 3PM, but over the last several years it has been as late at 6PM. This is very much a downer to the beginning of our vacation. We arrive with food needing to be put in the refrigeration, plus little ones tired from a two day drive, ready to play. Another change is the need to make beds, we use to find the beds already made. The service has not kept up with the rate increases. Each year we declare it will be our last to take this vacation, but once we relax and have a good week we bite the bullet and sign up for another year. We will consider yet another year, but again, it will be a big decision. Bobbie Johnson
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Island Time West. I am happy to hear that you and your family have enjoyed many vacations in Emerald Isle and Emerald Isle Realty is pleased to be a part of your vacation tradition. I am sorry to hear that you are displeased with the services offered and have noticed a decline in those received. As with anything, policies and such do change from time to time and because each of our homes is individually owned, services offered can vary. We strive to have all vacation properties cleaned and ready by 4 p.m., but on occasion it can take the hours of 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. before all homes are readied. With that being said, we will always provide you with your keys by 4 p.m. and our housekeeping staff strives to ready the kitchen area first so you can place groceries in the refrigerator when you arrive. Each owner has the choice of services they wish to provide, such as bed making. The description of each of our vacation properties will state if linens are included and if bed making is provided. If these services aren't included, we can add them to any reservation, at any property, for a nominal fee. Please ask one of our vacation planners about this when making your reservations. I see that you are scheduled to return to Island Time West in 2013 and we are looking forward to your stay with us. Please let us know if we can be of additional assistance as you continue to plan your Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Plenty of bedrooms so family groups had plenty of privacy.”
The home was lovely and we appreciated having large common areas where our group of 7 adults and two children fit at the same time. Lovely, large dining room table. We particularly liked having most bedrooms with an ocean view. The only thing I did not like about our experience was being pressured to buy travel insurance. When I declined it, the salesman charged us for it anyway. I had to undo the damage, but I should not have had to work hard at that.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Island Time West. I'm happy to know that this home fit the needs of your family so nicely and provided great spaces for you to enjoy your vacation. Travel insurance is offered on each reservation we make. Because of this, you will see it included initially and you are given the option to decline it. Once we receive your rental agreement indicating that you don't wish to purchase travel insurance, it is removed from your reservation. I looked at our records and didn't see that you were ever charged for the travel insurance. Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and allow Emerald Isle Realty another opportunity to serve as your host. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Our week at Island Time West was a very enjoyable experience for”
Service received from Emerald Isle Realty is always "great" and this time was no exception. We liked the layout of the home, especially the living area and porch. The large living area allowed movie / TV watching in one section and games around the large table. The kitchen was well equipped. The proximity to shopping center / grocery store was a "plus". Also, the short distance to the beach area was convenient. This was our second time at Island Time.

“Peaceful, restful, enjoyable, a piece of heaven”
All needs were immediately satisfied. We have rented over 5 different places from you and this is the best equipped, with a home like feeling. We have rented this unit in excess of 5 years and plan to return. Really like this years improvements to the board walk.

“Island Time 2011”
Our family stayed in both sides of Island Time this summer and we have tentative reservations for next summer. A few comments. Mostly claning/maintenance: - The ground floor under house was dirty and collecting a lot of junk. - There were a lot of burned out light bulbs. - There were bugs in west side kitchen and 3rd floor(this was posted previoulsly). - The 3rd floor could use a simple closet rod to hang clothes on. - There should be a room with twin beds not just all doubles (posted previously). - There were several broken chairs on the deck. Everyone had a great time. We hope the new owners consider these comments.
“A Wonderful Week at The Beach”
We rented both sides of Island Time for the week of May 1, 2011. This is a great beach front duplex, and we enjoyed our stay. There were two items in need of repair when we checked in. One of the toilet seats was broken, and the a/C on the first floor on one side was not working. A call to EIR resulted in both items being fixed within hours of when we called. This house has an interior pass through connecting the two sides, which is a great feature when the entire house is being rented by one group. We would definitely return to Island Time.
“Great family time together”
This was our first experience with EIR and Island time. We have been coming as a family for 20+ years. The house had a great layout with plenty of room for everyone. It was clean and neatly keep. The kitchen had plenty of accessories. We had both sides of Island time and the connecting door was great for large families. We were together but also had some privacy. The only change we would recommend would be maybe twins in the one of the bedrooms on the middle floor for children/teenagers to sleep seperate. We can not wait til next year.
