“Key Lime Retreat, Emerald Isle, NC”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

Key Lime Retreat has a great floor plan, with five bedrooms, four full and two half baths. All bedrooms have an attached bathroom, a huge plus in my opinion. Three bedrooms (two master suites with king size beds) have their own bathroom, while the other two share a Jack-N-Jill bathroom. The house also has a "reverse" floor plan, with kitchen and living areas on the top floor. One of the master suites (the largest/nicest in fact) is also on the top floor. All other bedrooms and the laundry "closet" (full size washer and dryer) are on the second floor with the other four bedrooms. The middle and top floors both have large decks, but there is NO deck furniture on the lower deck, which was a bit disappointing. While technically a third row home, it is a very short walk to the beach access and beach, and you can easily see the ocean from the top deck. The home itself was reasonably clean, though woodwork and outside doors could use a good cleaning. The decks also need, minimally, a good power washing, and some general maintenance (we actually hammered in some nails that had popped out). The kitchen/dining/living room area are quite comfortable. The dining room table can seat 10, with an additional 4 or 6 seatable at the kitchen island. There is also a large picnic table on the upper deck. As an FYI, there are 32 steps from the bottom entry level to the top floor, so this is not the home for someone who has difficulty climbing stairs. There is a pool, which was cleaned twice during our one week stay. The pool itself is small, but the kids loved it. It certainly served its purpose, The cottage is located on the eastern end of Emerald Isle, but is reasonably close to Food Lion shopping and movie theathers (about 3-4 miles). With some cosmetic "sprucing up," this house could easily go from 4 to 5+ stars. Would stay there again.

The house is comfortable for 16 people. Plenty of space for sleeping, eating and hanging out. We stayed here 7 years ago and it needs some updating to furniture for cleanliness. The top rack of the dishwasher was missing which is a problem when you are cooking for 16. Who wants to wash dished on vacation? Other than that, the place is close to the beach and is well stocked with dishes.

“Great Accomodations!”

We used Key Lime Retreat to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our 3 daughter,2 son's in law and 2 grand kids. There was plenty of room for all nine of us in the living room area & dining room area. The pool was a nice added amenity. The house was very clean & well kept. We will stay here if we decide to do something like this again.

“What a great week!”

Our family (ages 4-76 years old) loved our stay at Key Lime Retreat! Thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the very short walk to the beach! The home was beautiful (as good or better than the pictures online) and had everything we needed, plus room for us to "spread out". Thanks for having us and hope to visit again soon!

This is the first time we have rented anything through Emerald Isle Realty and the Key Lime Retreat. The process was very well organized and painless. The house was just as it was described, we had a large group and it accommodated all our needs. We would definitely stay here again and will certainly recommend Emerald Isle Realty!

“Key Lime”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2011

This is our 12th year renting a house on Emerald Isle with our family. Starting when our boys were in college and now all married with young children. We choose houses based on the needs of our growning family. i.e. adding bedrooms, covered deck, spacious living area, and large kitchen table to gather for meals and seat everyone. We picked Key Lime this year because of the 5 bedrooms and extra bathrooms and the pool. We enjoyed our stay and are considering renting this house next year. The kitchen was large and well stocked for cooking and we added 6 wine glasses!

“the rental accomodated our family very well”

Loved all the bathrooms, the kitchen and dining area fitted our needs, everyone in my family agreed that of all the places we have stayed this was their favorite.

“Key Lime Retreat was Sweet (as pie :-)”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2010

Key Lime Retreat was a beautifully decorated comfortable home to stay in for the week. Staying here made you feel like you were being spoiled for the week! We enjoyed the decks, pool, and yard space. There was plenty of room for everyone. We loved going for a dip in the pool after a trip down to the beach. The walk to the beach access wasn't bad at all. Everyone really enjoyed the upper floor decks, coffee in the morning, rocking the baby to sleep, and night-time star gazing. Everyone who stayed with us this week had a wonderful care free time. The pool table was a big hit with the whole gang.

“Fantastic Getaway”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2010

Our children and grandchildren arrived at Key Lime Retreat before we did so we heard how wonderful it was before we arrived. I don't think there was anything we needed that we didn't find in the house and it was only a 5 min. walk down to the beach. My husband & I remembered how much fun it was to play pool again. The best thing of all was watching the grandkids go to the beach everyday. It was just a fantastic place to be. Leta Grimes

“It was a nice relaxing vacation.”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2009

We really enjoyed staying at Key Lime Retreat. The house was really nice. I really enjoyed sitting out on the upper deck in the mornings. The pool was just the right size for small children and for adults to take a dip while laying out in the sun. The only thing that was wrong the back door on the sleeping level was hard to open at times. Other than that everything was great. We had a great time. Very convenient to every thing. Emerald Isle realty had exceptional service from the time we rented the house until we had our vacation and left. Especially liked the linen service.
