“Great House, Comfortable, Easy Ocean access”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

Our most recent stay was pleasant and relaxing. The house was clean, thoughtfully furnished, well maintained and very comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked, including wok, blender and rice cooker. Location was perfect; just across the street from the beach. One of our favorite things to do is to sit out on the covered deck, rain or shine and enjoy a favorite beverage while looking at and listening to the ocean. The picnic table on the deck is more than comfortable for either breakfast lunch or dinner. The deck is large enough to dry out your many sea shells you will find along the beach. There were many extra amenities like tons of music CDs, movies and books, games and videos for kids, not to mention the pretty welcome starter soap packages, liquid hand and dish washer soaps. Since we love to grill, the Weber grill with many tools and accessories was appreciated. Nice to have the beach towels and chairs. Looking forward to coming back. Almost Paradise is our home away from home.

“Wonderful Corner Location with Some Ocean View”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2013

Perfect floor plan for family of 4 adults! Spent most of the time at beach with access across the street or on porch enjoying partial view of waves and ocean breeze. Kitchen was well supplied with just about all we needed. Abundant books, Cd's and Dvd's as well as games available - great for rainy days! Suggest a TV in rear bedroom to right of laundry and in same room a firmer mattress like the wonderful ones in the two front bedrooms. One complaint: except for dining table chairs, inside the house no supportive and comfortable chairs for adults. On the porch rocking chairs not so safe: piece of one rocker broke off, another had such a short rear support that our adult daughter went over backwards, so need safer rocking chairs. Emerald Isle Realty gets 5 stars for very efficient service and prompt response of maintenance.

“Beuatiful, affordable, clean house for six close to beach!”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2011

The house was perfect for us. Big enough for six, clean, well laid out, close to the beach. Loved the movie selection, and the TVs. The view from the deck was good. The kids used the scooters, bikes, and boogie boards every day! Thanks!

“Wonderfully equipped, comfortable house”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2011

Great access to the beach. Outstanding library of music, books, Dvd's & even jigsaw puzzles! House was very comfortable with great deck furniture. The only downside was the internet service provider was down the first 3 days we were there (which wasn't a serious issue - we were supposed to be on vacation. Emerald Isle Realty's technical specialist provided excellent support in restoring the network when the ISP finally repaired their signal. Grill is well equipped and several bikes, boogie boards and scooters are provided. Emerald Isle Realty provides outstanding service. We'll continue to come back.

“Staying in almost Paradise was exactly that "almost paradise".”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2011

The staff at Emerald Isle Realty is the best I have ever worked with. Almost Paradise is so nice, clean and well stocked with an enormous music collection, videos, games,books everything you need at the beach, nice kitchen, lots of room indoors and a nice view from the porches. A short walk to the beach. It was great to have the linens supplied as well. All you need to bring is your family, some paper supplies, soap, food supply and just sit back and enjoy the beach. Thanks you so much for providing this home for our family to enjoy.

everything was perfect, the house, all the extras the homeowners include, EI area is so beautiful, and the residents very friendly. We loved this house!

“Vacation was Paradise”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2011

This was our first time vacationing on Emerald Isle and it was wonderful. Almost Paradise fit our needs perfectly and truly felt like a home. Many small touches provided by the owners were noted and appreciated (music, books,games and beach items). Additionally, the linen service was a nice touch. The location is excellent, beach access is across the street. Emerald Isle Reality customer service was flawless and check-in/out was effortless. We were sorry to leave and have reserved for two weeks next year.

“As nice as we remembered it to be”

Reviewed 18 May 2011

Visited the same beach house 6 years ago when my niece got married; can see that the owners have been making nice additions/replacements inside. The house has everything you could need and then some; great kitchen, beach accessories (except for an umbrella); beds were very comfortable; plenty of space. ...the largest capacity washing machine I've seen! We love the partially covered deck, but wish the sliding door and/or newer door to the deck had a screen so we could leave it open for that great breeze. I bet that's in the plan... It seemed that the twin beds were twin extra long, but the sheets provided by Island Essentials were for a regular twin; when we contacted Emerald Isle Realty, they made arrangements for additional large flat sheets to accommodate those beds which was very helpful. Our only other "issue" was our inability to figure out how to use the DVD player; the house has an amazing collection of books, music and Dvds, but we weren't able to watch a movie. That's OK, though; we really didn't go to the beach to watch a lot of TV. I'd love to go again!

“awesome vacation”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2010

Our vacation was absolutely awesome.. the problem we had was when we received our keys @ 3:30 we expected the cleaners to possibly still be there. but the cleaners did not even show up until 6pm. the fridge was discusting we had our groceries so we had to clean it. the cleaners did not do a very good job cleaning the rest of the house either..
