“A piece of heaven.”
We had a wonderful stay. Everything was great. We hated to leave. We are already thinking of returning next summer. We loved the location and sitting outside on the porch and seeing the ocean. We also loved the elevator. The pool was also a wonderful benefit. The realtors were great and settled our problems rapidly. It was really a great experience in every way.
This was our first time staying at Emerald Pearl. The house was great and nicely maintained. For a second row house, the views of the ocean and the sound were awesome. The decks had lots of rocking chairs and the swings were a nice touch. We liked the large living area on the upper level but felt that the television really needed to be upgraded - it was way too small for the room and set back in an opening above the fireplace. Having cable in the theater room was a nice touch but the speakers did not function properly. Normally, we wouldn't care much about watching TV but our week started out with a few days of cool, wet weather that limited our outdoor activities. The kitchen was well equipped and we had no dishwasher problems as reported in previous reviews. We did not care for the location of the pool. It is in the back with no way to enter directly from the house. Also, there is no porch or deck on the back of the house so if you just wanted to sit and watch the kids play, you had to sit in the sun. There is a brand new Dollar General Store literally in the backyard of this house which was very convenient for just picking up milk, bread, ice, etc. Beach access was directly across the street but be advised that it has many small steps (over 100) and was difficult with very small children.
“Decent house but Execellent service from Emerald Isle Realty”
This house was nice. Unfortunately this house was rented by a group of young adults who partied their whole week. They did some damage to the house and left it a mess! When we got there, the Hockey Table was broken to non-repair, fire alarm dangling from wall, sliding theater room door broke, and place wasn't cleaned well. However, I instantly contacted the Emerald Isle Realtor to report this so they wouldn't think any of this was done from our family. They immediately had someone out to inspect, re-clean, and repair what could be repaired at the time. This type of quick service made out stay more enjoyable and worthwhile!

“Our stay at the Emerald Pearl”
We enjoyed a week long stay at the beach and the Emerald Pearl was very nice. The media room was very nice and dark, perfect for movies for the kids. The rec area was also fun and gave the kids something to do during a break from the sun. The location was great, we had a nice view of the Ocean, and were directly across the street from the access ramp to the beach. We did have a problem with the dishwasher not working... which made for a lot of dish washing (on vacation...), as we chose to eat in often. The company did come by to fix it... however, I don't think they got the job done. The dishes were still not very clean (I even rinse dishes before putting them in the washer). Also, I would recommend a gas grill. It does state "park-like" charcoal grill on the listing, and that is what you get. I believe a lot of people would really enjoy having a gas or at least a larger charcoal grill... with a house that holds 12 people... that is a lot of burgers on a small grill. But the biggest bummer was the hot tub. It was not hot, about the temp of the pool. We tried to sit in it the first night and that was a mistake - much too cold for that, so we did not enjoy the hot tub at all during our stay, which would have been nice, and something that we had looked forward to. Last, we had a bit of a problem with ants. Kinda gross, when you see ants all over the kitchen counters - including in and all over the coffee pot, in the bathroom, on couches too. Overall we did like the place, but would have liked it much better if the above (easy fixes) were taken care of.

Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation and we'll happily assist in reserving your vacation home - 1-888-832-0140.
“Great house, great views and great times!”
We were very pleased with out stay at the Emerald Pearl. The house was everything we hoped it would be and more. The location is great, views tremendous and the covered porch is the best. Even with 95+ degree heat, the porch stayed very confortable in the shade with the breezes. The only hickup was the check-in...The email said 3:30 Express Check-in, so we were there at 3:30. The girls in the hut said to check inside since some "big houses" aren't ready unto 4. I went inside and they said that no "Big houses" are ready until 4 and that I needed to come back at 4 and go inside to get my key. I came back and 4 and they said that the key was out at the Drive thru hut, opposite of what I had just been told. That's no big deal and a very minor inconvenience, but after 5 or 6 hours in a car with whiny kids it doesn't take much to get under your skin. Eir needs to work on that and tell people not to show up until 4PM for those houses. Anyway, we really enjoyed our vacation at the Emerald Pearl and highly recommend it.
“Emerald Pearl Review”
This was a nice rental, but not perfect. There are a few things that could be improved at the Emerald Pearl. 1)A larger television in the living room. Very awkward to watch t.v. and hard to see. 2)Felt pads on the bottom of the dining room chairs! Absolutely necessary. The scraping was so loud it was irritating and could be heard in the rooms below. 3)Have cable television available in the "movie" room. That's a great room, and with the t.v. upstairs being so small, it would have been nice to watch shark week on the big screen. 4) The dishwasher is dying!If not already dead!!! 5) Neither the pool nor the hot tub was serviced during our stay. The pool got pretty gross. 6)It would be really nice if there were an umbrella or some sort of shade in the pool area. It was constant sun and it made it less desirable to sit poolside while the kids swam. Also, chairs are very uncomfortable.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Emerald Pearl. We very much appreciate your detailed suggestions and will pass them on to the owner of this home. We look forward to hosting you and your family during your next vacation so please call us when you begin planning - 1-888-832-0140.
House advertized with a 82 " Tv (replaced with a 42" no cable. Ants major problem. Saftey gates on porches and pool area broken. Fan in family room broken. Plastic pool chairs broken. No front lights when parking. Very small grill. Other than that house was nicely furnished.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Emerald Pearl. I agree that this Island Sandcastle is nicely furnished. It is also lavish on amenities which I'm sure you and your famiy enjoyed. I do understand your disappointment when you realized the projection television had been replaced by a 46" LCD television. This was done earlier in the rental season when the projection television was broken. We do try to keep our website up to date and accurate and I apologize that this did not serve you. I am happy that during your stay we were able to address and correct the issues you experienced with the safety gate at the pool entrance, the broken fan in the living room, and the pesky ants at the property. Also, it comes in handy that our housekeeping department has some small appliances on hand so we were able to lend you a blender. I did notice that since your stay all of the oustide furniture has been checked out and seems to be in fine working condition. I am going to pass on your suggestion for adding lights by the parking area. I'm sure a lot of guests would enjoy that addition, great suggestion. Thank you again for taking your time to provide us with your review. We are grateful for your loyalty to Emerald Isle Realty and look forward to serving you and your family for years to come.
“NOT BIG ENOUGH”
THE PROPERTY DID NOT FULLY MEET OUR NEEDS. THE BED SPACE WAS INADEQATE FOR OUR NEEDS.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. I'm very sorry that this property was not large enough for your family. When making your next reservation, let us know how many people will be staying. We can let you know what types of beds and how many each property has. In most cases, we can even tell you what beds are in which bedroom. This will ensure everyone is accommodated and you aren't cramped during your stay.
“The Emerald Pearl”
We stayed in Emerald Isle in July of 2006 and loved the place, so we decided in 2008 to stay there again. We, being my wifes mother, three brothers, one sister and their families, 21 people in all. We found lots of enjoyment on the Isle and plenty of activities. The Emerald Pearl was a beautiful house. We all agreed that it was one of the nicest houses we have ever stayed in, in our trips to "the beach". We have vacationed together in the Carolinas every year since 2000. The media room was a huge hit and we all liked the outside decks and steps to every floor as opposed to going into the house to move from floor to floor. We also liked the convenience of the elevator. We only used it when we came and when we left to move our suitcases and food into and out of the house but it was invaluable at those times. The house was clean and comfortable and we will definitely come back again. Thanks for asking, Bill Mullen
Only negative was kitchen cooking utensils, not enough quality pots and pans!
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Emerald Pearl. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed a peaceful week in Emerald Isle.
