This is our 5th year here and as usual we had a wonderful time. The house is just perfect for our family. As with all of the beach houses it could use some minor repairs here and there and I think the owners are working on that. Because of my bad knees and back I would love to see an elevator installed but I doubt if that will happen so I will just deal with the stairs. I love walking out of the door and seeing the beach in our back yard. It's just great.
“Improved over the last 4 or 5 years previous experiences”
Service from Emerald Isle Reality was especially improved. Kitchen Range in rental had been replaced. A much needed action. Inside was cleaner than in recent times past. Location is excellent especially you can see both sound and ocean from the top floor. Charcoal Grill is inadequate in size. We had 8 folks and found that grill would not accomodate food for that many . We have used this unit yearly with the exception of one time for the past 12 years.

“Great house, great location, great views”
To begin, we had a fantastic time at Vie Sur Mer II West. It was our first time to Emerald Isle and I can easily say this was the best (of the many) beach vacations we've ever had. It would be hard to go back to not staying right on the beach. Vie Sur Mer II spoiled us in that regard. The master bedrooms and the main dining/living/kitchen area (and of course the decks) all have fantastic views of the ocean. It stunningly beautiful. Especially at night when the moonlight bounces off the waves. So, we are definitely sold on staying beach side. For a couple reasons, I'm not sure that we would stay at Vie Sur Mer II again next time. The first reason is the reverse floor plan. It's not terrible if you're young (and does give you the best views in the living/dining/kitchen area), but it is something you should be aware of. You'll be going up and down a lot of stairs if you stay here. The second reason was the kitchen was not very well equipped. There was a shortage of decent glassware considering the house can sleep at least 10. Odd things that you need on vacation were missing like grill tools for the charcoal grill, a lighter, a bottle opener, etc. It was not overly burdensome, but just enough annoyance on vacation to justify complaining about. Overall this was a fantastic vacation and a great place to stay.
“Home Sweet Home”
This is our third family vacation and the house is almost perfect the only thing that would make it better would be an elevator. When we arrived I walked over to the window, looked out over the ocean and thought to myself home sweet home. It is nicely furnished, well equipped kitchen and clean. One of the most convenient things is that every bedroom has it's own bath. We are going back next year if God willing we just love the place, maybe there will be an elevator then, Ha! Emerald Isle Realty is great to deal with also. Carol Martin
“Lovely home, beautiful beach”
We had three families together in this house and it worked well. Kids aged three to ten. The laundry in the middle is wonderful. Water pressure was never an issue, nor was hot water. House was very clean upon arrival. Great to have vacuums available. Fridge was not working properly and it was addressed within hours of our phoning for maintenance. The house could use additional drinking glasses in smaller size for children. There were no small ones that we could find. The kitchen could use many more dish towels. The a/c didn't work as well as we would have liked given the humidity in the area but it wasn't a huge issue and somewhat to be expected. The landing at the end of the deck was awesome to have as was the rinsing station and the outdoor shower. Linens were better quality than I expected which was nice. The sofa bed is absolutely awful and literally not sleep-able, even for small children. It's definitely time to replace that piece. Another renter mentioned this to me as well. The beach is clean and beautiful and we had a wonderful time. Would definitely rent this house again (need a better sleeping option in the lower level) and hope to do so next year. Emerald Isle Realty is a great place to rent from. Professional and pleasant.
“as always we enjoyed our vacation at ER..surf fishing was great”
The house was very roomy for 4 couples and one single adult. The showers are extra small. Would rather give up bathtubs for more roomy showers. This was the first house with reverse floor plan. Probably wouldn't have rented had I noticed it. It is furnished very comfortable inside but needs updated furnished on decks.
Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. This duplex is quite spacious and I'm happy to know that it served you and your group well. Thank you also for your suggestions. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“A week in the sun and surf”
Overall this was a good oceanfront house with an excellent beach location. Better than many others in which we have stayed. Ramps rather than steps made crossing the dunes to the beach a real plus. From the street it appears to be a luxury house and in some ways it it. However it was lacking some ammenities we expected, but these inconviences we considered minor. Some were quickly fixed, others not. The unit had only one single wine glass. Emerald Isle Realty quickly fixed that with a case of 12 showing up within two hours. There were only three cocktail size glasses but an abundance of large water glasses. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, silverware and cooking utensils except for a wine corker. There were two unusuable, rusty charcoal grills, so we ended up going to Lowe's and buying one and left it for future renters. The only working telephone was in the 2nd floor master bedroom. No screens on sliding glass doors on 2nd and 3rd floors. The furnishings were as described and pictured by the realty. Compared to other beach houses we have rented oceanfront at EI, this one is on the top of our list. Yes, we will be returning in 2013.
Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed your Emerald Isle vacation at this duplex and plan to return in 2013. I have forwarded your feedback on to our maintenance department so they can tend to the items you listed.

“Home away from home”
This was our 4th vacation at Emerald Isle and each time we have stayed at a different place. That has changed now because we have found our home away from home and will be staying here from now on if possible. The rental was clean, beds were comfortable everything was great. We had a couple of minor things that needed attention, we called the realty and someone was there asap to fix the problem. The beach was just a few steps from our back door and we loved the private walk way. We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra day and we still didn't want to leave. We have put in our request for next year and if possible we hope to stay two weeks. The only thing that would have made it better would have been an elevator for those of us with bad knees.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Vie Sur Mer II West. I'm happy to know that we'll be welcoming you and your family when you arrive in Emerald Isle again next year. This is a great duplex and I'm happy that you have found it to be your home away from home. Please call us if we can be of additional assistance as you continue to plan your next vacation to Emerald Isle - 1-888-832-0140.
“A good fit for our large family”
This duplex was a good fit for our family. The bedrooms and layout of the house are beautiful. We rented both sides and loved the inside adjoining door. The new appliances in the kitchen were a plus. Aside from the white rocking chairs, the deck furniture was not very nice or at all comfortable. The sliding door to the deck was difficult to open. We have been renting houses in E.I. for 16 years and while I give the overall rating 4 stars because of the size, it could definately use some updating.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Vie Sur Mer II West. This is a great house and I'm glad you found it to nicely fit the needs and desires of your family. I'll certainly forward your suggestions on to the owner. Thank you for providing those. I hope you'll revisit Emerald Isle for your next vacation. Please call us when you're ready to begin making your plans - 1-888-832-0140.
“Perfect accomodation for our extended family”
This is a nice 5 bedroom/5 bath cottage with good kitchen and dining facilities and a nicely shaded deck on the second of three levels. With a gate at the stairway, the cottage is pretty baby-proofed on the main living level. The cottage needs some maintenance or parts replacements- some decking lumber, the sliding screen doors, and patio furniture, but all in all, the cottage is pretty well maintained. We have been renting this cottage for 4 years and know that it is not deliberately neglected.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Vie Sur Mer II West. It pleases me to know that you have found your place at the beach which you enjoy revisiting each year. Thank you for your suggestions for updates. I will pass these on to the owner. Please give us a call when you're ready to begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
