House is in a great location on the sound and short walk to beach. We enjoyed riding bikes on the bike path that extends for miles. Wonderful vacation home. It would be great if it had a grill.

Cockroaches are everywhere. Needs to do better jobs of cleaning and exterminating all cockroaches. They really turned me off.
“our most wonderful vacation spot.”
This is our 4th or 5th year staying at the sound bright--we always look forward to coming back each year. it is well mantained and the staff at emerald isle realty always make our stay wonderful.Thanks for all that you do for us. the home alway from home nature of the sound bright keeps us coming back. It is well apportioned for privacy and security both fo which appeal to us. the service is great-we had a water heater issure and the plummer was there in ten minutes and was great--made the repair in 20 minutes--one of the great stories of our experience at the sound bright.

The kitchen sink leaked (under the cabinet). We could not close the down stairs bath tub stopper. There were roaches crawling around every day. There were wasps inside the house nearly every day (I was concerned for my grandchildren). The carpet and furniture had fine white animal hair (looked like cat) on it that got on our clothing. Tradesmen were showing up to work on the property and house. One asked to cut and haul downed trees in the back of the house. Another wanted to paint in the up stairs bathroom. I allowed the tree trimmer but not the painter. I was already having enough allergy issues with the animal hair. I could not deal with paint fumes too. Because of the location, and the nature of my family, these things did not keep us from enjoying ourselves. But, they did make the house less than we expected.The house was beautiful, the location was wonderful. The issues were property management issues.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Sound Bright. The sound side of our island was hit the worst by Hurricane Irene which resulted in the downed trees. Thank you for allowing the workers to clean this up. As for the painting, this was arranged by the owner. Certainly, you can deny access to these workers if it isn't convenient for you and your family. Had we known about the work, we would have called to let you know and get your permission. Sound Bright is not a pet friendly home so I'm unsure why you found pet hair. Had you let us know about this, we gladly would have sent someone from our housekeeping department to clean this up. Thank you again for your feedback. Again, I'm sorry for the inconveniences you experienced. I hope you will return to Emerald Isle and choose Emerald Isle Realty to host you. Please call us when you begin planning your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Peaceful & fun.”
The Sound Bright was not our original rental. Due to hurricane Irene and other issues involving our original rental my wife and I decided to check for anything else that may be availiable. Lucky for us the Sound Bright was availiable. We loved the place due to it's location, the large dock on the sound. We also very much enjoyed the crab pots. The only thing wrong with this rental was one burner did not work on the stove(we cooked a lot of the local seafood while we were there)and for a larger group of people it could use some more lounging furniture inside, this was not a problem for us, could be next year because we would like to bring the family down. The staff at Emerald Isle Realty were very considerate and helpful to address the problems of our first rental and went out their way to make sure we were happy. Mission accomplished. Hope to get this place again next year. If we can't get the kids and grand kids lined up to be there at the same time I guess my wife and I will just have to be there alone again. Sorry Kids.Lol
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Sound Bright. I'm sorry to hear that Hurricane Irene threatened your vacation, but I'm glad we were able to find a home which provided so nicely for you. I hope you will be able to bring your whole family next year, but we do have properties to fit just about any size group so please call us when you begin planning - 1-888-832-0140.
Nice place. I agree with other reviewers that this place needs a grill.
Service was great. The house was great. Rooms were large, the lawn was nice with all the grass,so clean. Location is nice,not far from Food Lion. Loved being on the Sound. Loved every thing but the kitchen stove didn't work good. They should have a grill.
Disappointed that the home had not been cleaned when we arrived at 5:15pm. Did not get in until 7, but will get an early check in next year. The house was great - just needs another comfortable chair or two in the living room - not enough seating for a 4 bedroom home. The pans need an update - very scratched and the stick free surface was coming off. Bought my own frying pan. Other than that we had a great time. Loved the pier and crab pots. Not a bad walk to the ocean.
“Perfect for us”
