“EI at it's finest!”
My husband and I spent the week of June 6th in Ocean Reef 5B2 and could not have been more pleased. The views are great and the easy access to the beach can't be beat. Overall the condo is in very good condition, clean and decorated with a beach theme. The kitchen lacks nothing but a cook! Condo is less than a 10 minute drive to the center of EI and shopping, restaurants etc. I agree with other reviews that the master bath shower needs to be updated but other than that wouldn't change a thing. Will definitely stay here again!
“Ocean Reef 5B2”
We rented this 2B unit without doing any reviewing at all. It was our first trip to Emerald Isle. Great location to the ocean, kitchen has been updated. But there were some problems. First, the master bathroom shower is small and needs to be replaced. The kids full bathroom was fine. Second, the carpeting needs replacing. We called the Rental Office about the dirty carpet and they sent out a Professional Cleaner who was very nice and did a great job cleaning the carpeting. I understand this unit is booked week after week, so come August the carpet is dirty. But this carpet needs replacing. Remember, this is a Silver Unit, we want be renting Silver again
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay with us. I am sorry to hear of the disappointments you experienced with this condo, but it pleases me to know our teams were responsive to your reports. It is true that towards the end of the season properties can show some wear, and sometimes deeper cleaning is needed. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to have the carpets professionally cleaned, so they didn't detract from your overall experience. I hope you and your family will revisit Emerald Isle for your next vacation. Please call us when you begin making plans - 1-888-832-0140.
“Great place, on the ocean front!”
First time at this condo, enjoyed it, very clean and everything that we need in the kitchen area was available. Did have a problem with storm door but after calling Emerald Isle twice it was fixed.
“Best year yet.”
We have been coming to emerald isle for the last 6 years and this was the best. Check in was fast and easy. The condo was ready when we arrived. The weather was perfect. No hurricanes floating in the atlantic. The service we got from the local Resturants was friendly and well prepared. We will be back next year.
This is our third time renting this unit. Updated Kitchen looks great. We like it.
“Love this place!”
This is a great place for families! The beach out one door and the pool out the other. The views are awesome; it's quiet and since it's a gated community, there is no traffic just riding through. The condo itself is very well equipped, including a washer and dryer. The kids love the large flat screen TV and the beds are comfortable. It's an older complex but very well maintained and we have stayed in the exact same condo for 2 straight years and already booked for 2014 for the same condo again. The kids won't even consider staying anywhere else.
Response from the manager I'm so happy to know that your whole family looks forward to your vacation at Ocean Reef 5-B-2 and it has become your home away from home. We look forward to your next trip to Emerald Isle so please call us if we can be of assistance as you continue to plan your 2014 stay - 1-888-832-0140.
“Far exceeded our expectations!”
The convenience to the beach and pool are unbelievable. The furnishings are very comfortable. This was our most comfortable stay at the beach in 10 years and it will be first on our list for our next visit to the crystal coast.

This complex was recommended to us by our friends. The condo itself wasn't too bad except that the microwave didn't work. We called Emerald Isle Realty on our first night and told them...they said someone would be out to look at it the next day--no one showed up. We called them again on Monday and they now said that it was broken and they would replace it on Thursday. Once again, no one showed up. So we spent our week without a microwave and it seems that they knew about it all along (one hint was that the microwave was unplugged when we arrived). No biggie. They didn't hesitate to take our money on time but when we needed something done for us...they were no where to be found. The other strange thing about our stay was that the owner of the condo spent the entire week in the adjacent condo (in the same building). Maybe she owns both units? To say that she was unfriendly would be an understatement. She never hesitated to offer unsolicited (and unwanted) advice. Even though pets aren't allowed, that didn't stop her from having her dog there for the whole stay. I can't count the number of times it would bark and come over to our deck while we were relaxing. In the past we've rented a whole house on Emerald Isle and I think that's what we'll be doing the next time. Emerald Isle Realty seems to be fine to deal with as long as you don't have any problems and you don't mind being lied too. Overall I think the condo was over priced for what you get and we won't be making the same mistake twice.
This unit is in a great location and we loved being there. The unit does need updating and when we got there the housekeepers had done a terrible job at cleaning. If I were the owner of this unit I would have been very upset. It appeared to have not been vacummed or floors scrubbed at all. But having said that if there are upgrades made for next season we would love to rent it again.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 5 B 2. I agree, this condo is in an exceptional location and affords fantastic Ocean views. I am sorry to hear that the cleanliness was not desirable when you arrived and our housekeeping department would have happily corrected this for you so please let us know of such disappointments during your stay. Thank you again for your feedback. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will revisit Emerald Isle soon. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“The best week of the year”
This is the girls week at the beach. We have as many as 6 girls or as little as my best friend and me. This year it was just the 2 of us. Our check ins are always quick and easy. The staff at EIR are the best. Our rental unit (which we have used for the last 4 years)keeps getting better every year. Last year they upgraded the kitchen to stainless steel appliances. This year fresh paint job. The maintenance department is friendly and very fast in solving any problems. We enjoy the location because it is family friendly and not commercialize.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 5 B 2. How great that you can get away each year for a girls only trip to the beach. The owners of this condo do an excellent job in maintaining it and keeping it up to date and I'm happy to hear that you've noticed and enjoyed the improvements. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
