We have loved Island Time East for three years now, and are already re-registered for 2015! The addition of an elevator for the East side was a wonderful surprise and very practical for people with any physical disability. I have mobility difficulties and was so grateful for use of the elevator, but I have to say I would always return with or without the use of the elevator because the house is lovely, well equipped, and extremely comfortable. I always have at least 4 friends (all over 70 yrs. old) with me, and there is plenty of room for all of us.
For 36 years Emerald Isle is the place that always rejuvenates me. There is tranquility, joy and a peaceful state of mind that seems to descend on me the minute I cross the bridge and arrive at the house. I tell everyone that Emerald Isle makes any problem you may have better and easier to deal with and certainly less of a problem! Island Time is roomy, comfortable and well appointed. Nothing is more enjoyable than sitting on the deck first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee in your hand and the ocean 100 feet away. Sometimes there are dolphins swimming by, sometimes a shark, sometimes pelicans! There is always a sense of peace and healing...we all need that.
“House is great...but horribly maintained.”
The location of the house is fine. The fact that it is a connecting duplex is fine...but... When I pay over $3,000 for two weeks at the beach, I believe that I have a right to expect: 1. A toilet seat that does not fall on the floor when one sits on it 2. Stretchers on the deck that are complete, not held together with two different kinds of duct tape 3. Working light bulbs in all lamps and fixtures 4. More than 4 soup/table/pasta spoons for a home with 5 bedrooms 5. Clean upholstery on the furniture 6. A clean bedspread in the Master (king) bedroom 7. A picnic table that yet another time needs to be either replaced or painted. The tables are disgusting on both the east and the west sides. 8. Screens on the sliding doors in the bedrooms...we're at the beach, sleeping with the doors open and the aC off is what one might like to enjoy when it is low humidity. I could go on, but I think you get the drift. I requested a $200 credit towards my rental next year, and have still heard nothing . Yes, we have reserved for next year, for now. C. Diane Johnston

“Great week at the beach!”
Good things -- well equipped, comfortable furniture and beds, good location Emerald Isle Realty was as always great to work with -- small maintenance items were handled quickly Bad Thing -- nowhere to hang clothes in the 3rd floor bedroom. Worst thing -- owners did not allow veteran's discount -- I am a Vietnam Vet -- fought for this country -- it was not a vacation over there -- you must not remember this is the Home Of The Free Because Of The Brave. I will not stay in your property again. I will have Emerald Isle Realty find me another place to rent as they have the last 12 or so years.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Island Time East. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time in this home. I am sorry to hear that you don't have plans to revisit this duplex due to the owners not discounting. I would like for you to know that we very much acknowledge and appreciate your service to our country. I'd also like to let you know that no discounts are offered for this property so neither Emerald Isle Realty, nor the homeowners, were simply denying a military discount. Certainly, I will make the owners aware of your feedback. Thank you again for your review. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“What's the one sentence that describes your experience?”
Wonderful, comfortable house with great views from balconies on all floors and with a marvelous, well equipped kitchen!

“Great house for a family vacation!”
This is the second time that we stayed at Island Time. It is a spacious house with bedrooms on each level giving a degree of privacy for everyone. We love the covered porch and the boardwalk to the beach.
“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. - 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.
“All expectations met and exceeded.”
This august was our second time at island time. Have stayed on both sides and find them equally comfortable. Really don't know what I would change--enough room for many with comfort. Talked to the owner who said he was planning some remodeling over the winter. We really enjoy the location and will try to reserve for another somer get-together.
We had a wonderful time. This is our 15th time coming to Emerald Isle in the last 18 years. We enjoy it very much every year. Some of the houses we have stayed in have been a little nicer but all in all the house was beautiful and it was a wonderful trip. Thanks again!
“A great time was had by all.”
Everyone enjoyed the stay at Island Time East. We had a problem with the main floor air conditioner upon arrival and it was fixed that evening. The owner even stopped by and brought us fresh tomatoes! We loved the layout of the house and the size of the bedrooms. Also, there is an excellent view from all three decks. No complaints here.
