The bottled water delivery was a very nice touch. The rooms were quite spacious and well appointed. It is a lovely, comfortable house. We felt like we were in a cottage, not a duplex, as only the one side is available for rental. The only negative I can report is that it was advertised as having a "gourmet kitchen". Though it was well equipped, it does not really qualify as gourmet.
“Nine Years and Counting!”
We just completed another six-week stay at Top Notch Too West (Tntw). We started staying here in October 2006 and have returned twice a year ever since. We continue to love the amenities afforded in the well-stocked home, all of which add to our comfort and enjoyment. The owners, Pam and Jerry, have stayed in touch throughout our stays and have ensured that everything was to our liking. And it was. Every time. Even after six weeks on the island, we never tire of those beautiful views of sand and surf out the expansive windows Oceanside. We've already booked for the fall 2014 and spring 2015. And we'll continue to stay in Tntw as long as we're able. It's a beachin' good time. Y'all come!
“Our Big, Fat, Italian Thanksgiving 2013”
Our family (3 generations) spent Thanksgiving 2013 at Top Notch Too West. The house and setting were perfect for us! All the windows on the ocean side offered beautiful views of the water. There was plenty of outdoor seating on every level. There is no restaurant in the area that offered a better water view than the picnic table on the deck where we ate lunch. The main deck had a locking gate that prevented the children from escaping to the beach without an adult. The pier is about a mile walk away and the beach nice and wide. A true bonus was when the Emerald Isle Christmas Parade began lining up in front of the house. My granddaughter sat on a fire truck, met Elmo, and even Santa! We stood in the driveway and watched the parade go past...no driving involved. The living area of Tntw had plenty of comfortable seating, a huge TV, a wood top dining table that sat 10 without overcrowding. There was a bonus 4 top table in a bay window that was perfect for serving appetizers. The kitchen offered enough space for a couple of cooks, tasters, and buffet setup. There was a large pantry, several empty cabinets, and a second refrigerator downstairs for all our items. I am an avid cook and found the kitchen to be well stocked with items we needed for a big Thanksgiving meal. I took ny own knives (as I always do) but the kitchen had more than enough. Good quality large pots and frying pans were plentiful. We did have to search for a can opener and finally found one on the top shelf of the pantry. The only thing we found lacking was serving bowls. The bedrooms were of a good size, with a ocean front jetted tub in 2 of them. Each of the 4 bathrooms had a tub/shower combo or a large shower. There is a bedroom behind the kitchen on the main floor and a hall bath. One of the ocean front rooms and a street side bedroom on the middle level share a hall bath. Each bedroom had a TV. Emerald Isle Realty went beyond expectations. Would we return to Top Notch Too West! Everyone says yes!!
“Beyond our hopes!!!”
On the day of our arrival, the owner called to check that we were completely satisified with what we were finding with their beach house duplex. She also made us aware that one of the 2 jaccuzi's had a problem with the motor but was scheduled to be repaired that week...it was repaired and did not impact our happiness with the home. Her concern for our happiness meant so much to our family. We needed a large number of bedrooms because my husband and I (the old mom and pop of the group) love to vacation with our 2 children, their spouses, and our grandchildren. We found the duplex to be not only beautiful, but very roomy, with an extra bedroom that we didn't expect, a well stocked kitchen, balconies with 3 of the rooms, a quiet, uncrowded beach, and the list could go on and on. Emerald Isle is beautiful, with few (if any) large high rise hotels. Which helps with keeping the beaches quiet and uncrowded. The whole isle is family oriented, with most people visiting, having young children. I didn't see a single group of partying college kids. Which we have ran into, during all our vacations to other beaches. I would highly recommend Emerald Isle for a vacation spot, and definitely suggest you reserve Top Notch Too West if you need a beautiful, well kept home that is ocean front, and if you need more that the average number of bedrooms/baths.

“Loving It Since 2006!”
We rented Top Notch Too West (Tntw) for the first time in October 2006. We have been vacationing at Emerald Isle since 1999 and came back once or twice a year for a week at a time. When we found Tntw, we started extending our stays every year until now, we are spending almost 6 weeks there in March-April and the same amount of time in September-October. It's obvious that we love it. The location is perfect: It's only a few blocks from Emerald Plantation, with great shops and restaurants, but the home is serenely quiet and peaceful. The sounds of the atlantic Ocean lapping the shore can be heard from anywhere in the home. Inside, it is comfortable, well-appointed, and well-maintained. The owners, Pam and Jerry, do a wonderful job of ensuring renters' comfort. The "east side" of the duplex is owned by a delightful family from Wake Forest who visit only on weekends and vacations. So we never have to worry about a succession of unruly renters next door. We have become great friends with the family. We have already made our reservations for September-October 2013 and for March-April 2014. We love it and just can't get enough of Tntw and Emerald Isle. Y'all come!!!

“Top Notch Too was very comfortable.”
The gas grill should probably be covered when not in use. It was covered with sand and rusty. I was afraid to use it although it may have worked fine. The bottled water was an asset and we all "used" and liked that feature. The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and there were lots of decks and plenty of "rocking chairs." The view was very beuatiful. We had stayed in houses before with a pool table and ping pong table - so we missed this feature.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Top Notch Too West. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed this property so much and I hope you will return. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
“Plenty of room!”
We are a family of 12 and have been vacationing at Emerald Isle for approximately 30 yrs. We have stayed in many nice cottages, but this one has been the best by far, mainly because the rooms are large so we do not feel as if we are on top of each other, and we have plenty of places in the house to get away from each other to have some alone time. Also, the kitchen in Top Notch Too is very well stocked.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Top Notch Too West. I'm happy to know that you have found a vacation homes which meets your needs and desires so nicely. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation and we'll happily reserve this duplex for you again - 1-888-832-0140.
“Oceanside Heaven Outside Your Door -- and Windows”
We have stayed in Emerald Isle since 1999, and in Top Notch Two West since October 2006. We started by coming for one week in October, then added a week in april. We have loved it so much that now we are up to a month in March / April and in September / October. It's that good! Views of the ocean, just yards away, are spectacular from every window and door southside, and there are spacious decks on every level for sunbathing or just relaxing and ocean-viewing. It's great to sit in a rocking chair on the deck in the morning, sip coffee, and read the paper while watching and hearing the waves crash nearby. The home is beautiful, spacious, clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The owners, Pam and Jerry, are most accommodating and tend to every need of the property. A family from Wake Forest has bought the other side of the unit (East), and they come there regularly; so we don't have to be concerned about a stream of renters next door. The family are wonderful, and we've become friends. They don't rent the unit to others. The folks at EI Realty -- especially Katrina --are always helpful. Top Notch Two West is our oceanside dream, and we'll continue returning there as long as we are able.
“Family time at beach”
We enjoyed our time together as a family on the beach. We like to prep and fix food for meals. Again this year the outside grill is not working, very disappointing.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Top Notch Too West. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time at this house and in Emerald Isle. I'm sorry to know the grill wasn't working during you stay. Our maintenance records don't indicate that this has been reported so I did submit a request to have the grill inspected and replaced, if needed. Please let us know of such issues during your stay; we have grills which we could lend to you so you can enjoy grilling outside. Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming your family back to Emerald Isle and Top Notch Too West in 2012.
This was the best beach house we've ever stayed at. Clean, spacious, well appointed. Great view of the beach from all decks. Loved the master suite with the jacuzzi bath!
