“Great property for large families”
This property worked really well for our four families - two of whom stayed in Gladstone East. The inside adjoining door gave easy access to both sides, the large open deck ( with no divider) also added to our enjoyment of our large group. House is in good condition, no maintenance concerns, great layout with a nice open kitchen. Only complaint ( and not a big one) is that the kitchen wasn't as well equipped as some places we've stayed. Location off Coast Guard Rd is convenient to grocery store and shops. We've rented in EI for almost 20 summers and never rented the same place twice. But if we decide to come with all our relatives again, we might just rent this property again!
“Gladstone West, 2013”
Everything was as advertised. There were a few glitches: 1. Our ice maker was not working. Your contract maintenance company did not share your customers(us)sense of urgency, so it took 3 days for them to respond. The TV in the front room malfunctioned on the day before our departures but that was OK and probably better for us. Overall it was a great stay. Thanks
“Very nice accomodation for vacation, very near the water, good r”
Very good experience. Realty staff very accommodating. Would definitely go again.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and for your kind compliments of Emerald Isle Realty. Please come again!
“the best cottage that we have ever rented”
The wide, covered porches are the star attractions. The view is magnificent. The other unique feature is an inside door connecting the two sides of this duplex. We rented both sides, so we had two kitchens and two sitting areas, perfect for our large family. The kitchens are well equipped and the beds are comfortable. The cottage is clean and tastefully decorated. On our last night, the aC on one side stopped working. I was impressed that Emerald Isle Realty sent someone immediately to fix it on a rainy Saturday night. The location is wonderful...in a nice residential neighborhood, yet not too far from stores and restaurants. The only suggestion is to have a wider parking area. There are landscaped areas outlined with landscaped timbers. This greatly limited parking and we continuously shuffled our 7 cars to get out the driveway. Probably most families wouldn't have to deal with so many cars.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Gladstone West. It pleases me to know that this full duplex served your large group so well. I'm also happy to hear that our maintenance department was quick to respond and remedy the issue you experienced with the air conditioner. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and the Gladstone duplex for your next vacation. Please call us when you begin making plans for your 2013 vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
Beach location was great - good location on the island. Good kitchen and porches. Cleaning was only average and aC is weak on the second floor.
“For 13 years Gladstone has felt like "our home" for a week!”
Of the 15 years our family and our friends' families have vacationed at Emerald Isle, we have spent the past 13 at Gladstone. Being a duplex fits our families and we love having the two kitchens to feed our large group. Our favorite part of the house is the porch facing the ocean. The owners continue to make improvements which has kept us from changing houses. This year we loved the new stairs at the front of the house and the interior updates.
“Wanderfull and relaxing but in need of updating”
My family had a great time this summer at the Gladstone west and east. We usually rent both sides of a beach front duplex that has a connecting door. Last year we chose Figura Scotch bonnet east and west witch was fantastic. No worries from that property other than it was a tad to small, so coming back to the Gladstone, this is why we chose Gladstone this year. Happy with the room and layout, and the sleeping arrangements. We realized we didn't like the public beach access right beside us, 2nd and 3rd row guest were continuously setting up camp right in front of the home we rented. Gladstone's remodel looked great but the appliances on both sides need attention more so than the granite tops, which is not a seller for me and others. The dishwashers did not work. the clothes washer did not work at all( the agitator in the washer is broke). Right off the bat when we arrived the west side had 4 trash cans missing in the bathrooms and kitchen, and there were 4 light bulbs burnt out from both sides. I'm a cook and the Kitchen utensils were awful. The pots and pans all needed replaced and the glasses were far and few. In my opinion the money that was spent for all the paint and granite updates, should have went towards more important things. Like the dishwasher and clothes washer, pots and pans. My family has been coming to Emerald Isle now for over 25 yrs. We have planned on coming for along time to come and always get beach front. All 18 of us this year had again a wonderful time and will to come next year, but i think we will not be renting this property again. Like i have said the Gladstone West and East is nice but is still in need of other area updating. Thank your Emerald Isle for the wonderful vacation and we will see you next year.
Response from the manager Thank you for your comments. The updates to the home the homeowners have made are certainly nice and you can tell they are trying to keep the property updated. I have passed your comments along to Maintenance about the appliance issues and kitchen restocking needed to housekeeping. Thanks Again and we look forward to seeing you next year!
