“Nice house close to beach and Emerald Isle hot spots!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2015

Nice house with easy beach access. Great location -- you can walk/bike to putt-putt and/or grocery stroe. Also, easy bike ride to Sweet Spot and other fun spots. Could use a little furniture updates in spots, but overall, great house for a week at the beach.

“Awesome Week at EI!!!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

This was a last minute decision for booking a cottage at the beach. We were trying to juggle multiple calendars and squeeze a week of vacation in before taking our oldest daughter to college. I found Emerald Isle Realty ( I've never used them before) to be pleasant and helpful. We booked the cottage Friday, 8 days before we were to arrive. Everything went off without a hitch, even with booking this close to our arrival. We started out the week with 13 family members and ended the week with 4. Everyone from 14 - 78 had a wonderful time. The bedrooms were set up well and helped us with sleeping arrangements, that could have been problematic with so many under one roof. My mother-in-law did decide to stay on the top floor all day to avoid using the flights of stairs. I found the stairs to be a little challenging even for me, and I am a lot younger. I opted to use the outside stairs from the decks for the most part. The cottage was clean and matched the on-line pictures. I was a little skeptical of the beach access being 2 cottages away (on another's review of the cottage). On the satellite image it showed accesses 8 cottages to the right and 8 cottages to the left (these were the nicer board accesses). The access 2 cottages away was a sand walk way which was a little hard to maneuver, but it was still much better than walking down to the farther accesses. My brother-in-law has had knew surgery and he seemed to be OK. The ocean views from the decks were wonderful. If you can't have ocean front, this was the next best thing. This area of the beach was wonderful with wide areas and white sand. Everyone enjoyed the beach and the pool all week. It was the best of both worlds. We have been spoiled and probably will never book another cottage without a pool. This is a definite plus for the owner's of the cottage. All the beds/mattresses were good for all. The only issue I had were the sheets. I did try to negotiate to bring my own towels and linens, but the realty stated they were included and we had to pay for it whether we used them or not. Fortunately, I brought a couple of extra sets for the queen sleeper sofas, just in case some other family members were able to make the trip. By day 3, my husband and I switched the provided linens for our own sheets. I will say the sheets weren't bad and no one complained, but for a husband who has very sensitive skin, it was worth us using what we brought. I did like the fact that all the beds were already make upon arrival and all the towels were in each room. I've always brought all of this and I consider this a plus, since it freed us up to get dinner going once we arrived. We did not have to unmake any of the beds upon departure, either. This cottage is close to just about everything. Emerald Plantation is just a couple of streets away and gave us a place to go shop, walk around and browse, and go to the movies; as well as, the grocery store is right next door. There is an "ice distribution shack" very close that you can buy ice in bulk and it's much cheaper than the stores. I am not sure of the name of the place, but very close. My husband found this while searching for ice, since everyone seemed to be out of it on July 4th. We were situated close enough (but far enough away) to the pier to enjoy a most spectacular July 4th fireworks display from the top deck of the cottage. This lasted an unbelievable 30 minutes. It was beautiful and I recommend this to anyone who can travel around this holiday. The kitchen was nicely equipped and they even had a cake pedestal, which came in handy for us. The only thing I did not like about the kitchen was the water pressure. The sink faucet leaked, if you put your hand on it. It was not enough of an issue for me to report it, since it did not leak otherwise. This cottage made our return trip to Emerald Isle very pleasant. It is currently for sale, and the family did discuss buying it. I guess that must tell you something about this cottage. We enjoyed the week at the cottage and all the fun things that are so close by for entertainment, as well as dining. I am not sure I would be able to afford this cottage in the future, but we will keep it on our go to list of places to check for return visits. Thanks to the owners for their attention to details and trying to make sure this cottage was restful and relaxing for all!

“Fun At The Beach”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

Perfect for a special "family" vacation at Emerald Isle. Second row but just across the street from the beach. Saves money. Three story nice view of the ocean. Uncrowded beach. Cool off in the great fresh water pool afterwards. All the comforts of home. Great for grilling outdoors by the pool except that the grill needs replacing. Bed mattresses are quite firm (some like others don't). Otherwise the perfect getaway.

This house was great. I would definetly stay there again.It was very clean. Couple of minor things with amenities, the gas grill was very small, most of the deck furniture around pool was cracked , description of home claims second fridge downstairs(I assumed regular size frig but it was just a college type small frig)The decks on the house gave you spectacular views and the beach access was 2 doors down and a very easy walk.

“Just perfect!”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

This beach house was absolutely perfect for our entire family, ages 3-65. Access to the beach was so close, but far enough away that people weren't walking right beside our house to get there. The pool was a wonderful asset and was used every day. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, coffeepot, blender, etc. Two refrigerators was a bonus. The washer and dryer were wonderful, particularly with children. Sitting on the deck and watching the ocean was great. Having free WiFi was the icing on the cake. We had a leaky shower and a TV issue and both were resolved within an hour of our phone call. Wish we had this kind of service at home!! We will definitely be back. Thank you!

“Our First "Real McCoy Family Reunion", memorable”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2011

this was our first "real mccoy family reunion". Our children and grandchildren loved being so close to the beach but they loved the pool too. Some of the furniture was alittle old for what we paid but the size of the beach buddy and location was amazing.

“Memories that we will all cherish”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2011

This was our second year, and it was shared with family, who rented a place near us on the beach so we had best of both that Emerald Isle offers. The pool is really a necessity with youngsters and oldsters. The freshening up and adding wifi, was pleasant suprise. If all goes well we will be back again next year.

“It was the best vacation we have ever had!”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2011

Loved the condo - it was great. Had a great time and Emerald Isle Realty was very helpful when we had pool issues and took care of it immediately. The location was perfect. Would recommend this to anyone!

“Beach vacation with pool”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2010

The rental was very nice. We found no faults with the house. The pool was an awesome addition to our vacation!

“First taste of Emerald Isle”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2010

As a last minute alternate to our annual vacation in Gulf Shores, AL (due to the oil spill), our group decided to give Emerald Isle a try. The location was great with easy access to the beach, shopping, and activities. We got a special deal on a great house due to our last minute reservation. It had a great view and a comfortable floor plan. The private pool was a wonderful bonus-enjoyed by all! Not sure if we can afford it at full price but we'll definitely consider it for next year.
