This was a great vacation house for the 6 of us. Up stairs master bedroom very nice with great view. Well equipped kitchen, which is a must since we only ate out once. Wonderful beach location. Might think about replacing the dryer. The grill was rusted out and those hibachis were a challenge to cook more than one steak on!

“Loved the beach, just not this unit.”
Home needs a serious cleaning, updating, de-bugging.

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.
We reserved Dolphin Watch West because my elderly mother could stay in the bedroom on the main floor and not have to climb another set of steps to 2nd floor bedrooms. My husband and I also had my sister and her 10-year old granddaughter with us. The cottage was roomy enough for all of us. The kitchen was well-equipped and had all utensils and pots and pans needed. We also found it to be clean, although the carpet was stained downstairs in the dining area and hopefully can recover with a good shampoo. The sofas were comfortable, important to us as we are all readers. The views were great both from the master bedroom, living room/dining area, and from the deck. We met the owners of the unit next door--friendly and good folks! We would definitely rent Dolphin Watch West again.
“A simple beach front place that did the trick”
This is a simple duplex that is clean, well laid out, and on a less-crowded part of the beach. We felt it was fair value for the money and there were no disappointing surprises. Service at Emerald Isle was efficient and friendly, this includes the prompt and courteous way they dealt with a temporary connection glitch that we had with the wireless internet as they moved quickly to resolve the problem for us. To be honest, I expected the place to be kind of rundown for the price we paid but in spite of the fact that it looks a little bland on the outside, the inside was modern enough (though not luxurious) and definitely clean and in good repair. We were completely happy with our choice.
In addition to the almost impossible breathing conditions due to smoke from a nearby forest fire(obviously not the fault of the owner or Emerald Isle, we found the bunk bed bedroom way too small and very uncomfortable for sleeping children or adults. Room was small and stuffy.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Dolphin Watch West. The smoke we experienced this Summer was an unpleasant thing and I'm thankful that the fire has been contained and our area alleviated of this. The bunk room does have two sets of bunk beds situated within it so there isn't a lot of additional room for activities other than sleeping in this room. Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and allow Emerald Isle Realty to host you. Please call us when you begin planning your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Dolphin Watch Review”
The house was clean and ready to use when we arrived. The house was basically all right. We had problems with the door locks and some lights/exhaust fan. The main door locks were hard to operate. I think a little WD40 may help. The sliding glass door off the dining/living room could not be locked. It was locked by a board to keep the door from opening. The light in the kitchen sometimes would not come on unless you turned the switch on and off a couple of times. The exhause fan in the bathroom off the kitchen only worked part of the time. There were not remotes for the TVs in 2 of the bedrooms.
Response from the manager Thank you, for your review. I’m so sorry that you had some maintenance issues during your stay. Please remember to report all issues to our maintenance department at the time that you noticed them so that we have the opportunity to correct them for you and your family while you are here. All of the upstairs locks have been replaced. Due to the salt air and sand blowing around most of our ocean front doors have an alternate locking mechanism. The dining room and living room sliding glass doors (like many of our homes) have a rod to secure the door which is more secure than a lock. There are now remotes for every room! We look forward to your next stay with us!
We enjoyed this property very much. It was very spacious and had a very equipped kitchen...that is a huge + from our family! We were disappointed in the water damage from the roof in fear of mold because of Athsma conditions. They fridge didn't seem to keep thing very cold either. But overall we would stay again, if improvements were made.
Response from the manager A well stocked kitchen can make all the difference during a vacation, I’m happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the home! The roof was replaced in 2010 with a metal roof and all of the issues have been taken care of. Just as an FYI, the homeowners will be residing the home this year! Thank you, so much for your review, we hope that you reserve Dolphin Watch West again for your 2011 summer vacation!
