“Nice place. Needs some TLC”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2016

To be honest, we had a great time at this rental. The space worked out great with our 4 children and my parents. The pool was a lifesaver when the kids tired of the beach. The kitchen was STOCKED with so much it was fantastic. Here were the problems: we had ants in the kitchen and found a few cockroaches. We called Emerald Isle Realty but they never sent the exterminator they promised. The provided linens were great but the door and bathmats that stay in the unit were filthy. The walls could use a good cleaning as well and paint was chipping in multiple places. Multiple lights were out when we arrived and a few went out while we were there. We called EI Realty and no one was sent, despite their repeated promises. The downstairs kids' bedroom is REALLY dark. One last thing. . .we didn't watch TV all week and waited for Friday night when we could watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. With hundreds of channels, there was NO NBC!!!!! We were really disappointed. Really?! My family was waiting all week for this one night and then it was ruined. Overall, it was a great stay and a great location. The house just needs some deep cleaning and an exterminator.

“Nice area”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2014

We enjoyed a relaxing vacation at this house. The area is very enjoyable, with easy beach access across the street, and a very short drive to dining, groceries, or activities.

“Great Vacation”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

The house was nice. We loved the big deck and swimming pool. The house lay out is not ideal for families with little kids since the master bedroom is Ina different floor from the other bedrooms, two floors away from the kids room. The house was well equipped, lots of toys, and the washer/dryer were very clean and worked great. Would have liked a more updated kitchen and we did run into a few ants/bug problems during our stay. Beach access was very convenient.

“Wonderful time spent at the Borrowed Time house!!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2013

We loved the week we spent at Borrowed Time! The home was well stocked, beautiful views of the ocean, plenty of room for 3 families!! The location was great! We loved having the garage for our 4 motorcycles! All the beach and pool accessories were great to have in the house!!

Response from the manager Borrowed Time does boast wonderful views and great amenities. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your time here. We'd love to have you as our guests again so please call us so we can book your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great Vacation Home for Our Family”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2012

This is our 3rd year in Borrowed Time and for us (6 adults and 4 children ranging in age 6 mos - 9 years old) the many levels help disperse us and our noise. We always choose to stay downstairs as it is almost noise proof and the coolest room in the house. The kitchen is well stocked but could use a vegetable peeler. Our biggest disappointment this year was the pool. For some reason it was not as clean and clear as in previous years. Hopefully EI Realty will deal with the pool people and take care of it. It is easy for all of us to get to the beach - just across the street to the access way. Any problems are taken care of quickly after calling EI Realty. Thanks for being so cheerful and helpful

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Borrowed Time. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your vacation this year, but I am sorry to hear about the issue you experienced with the pool. I have alerted our maintenance department so they can touch base with the pool technician about this matter. I hope you'll revisit Emerald Isle and Borrowed Time. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great location! We would go back again!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2011

This house is perfect for two families. The location is excellent. We would definitely come back again!

“Great Time was had by all”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2011

Excellent in all categories: pool, close to ocean, comfort of rooms, items in garage that we could use. Cable TV. We had 2 issues: Washer/Dryer was on bottom floor. Grandma - my wife - had to go up and down stairs a lot doing laundry. Hurt her knee. Also, One of the aC units went out and had one warm night with fans provided by EI Realty. Minor inconvenience, hope the owners get that fixed.

“Great but with a few problems”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2010

The house was very nice, location was good, pool was great. Problem with bugs in lower level (Large water bug).and ants and flys too. Pool should have instructions or someone to come and clean and check it out during the week. Hard to open dishwasher door, had to open refrigerator door inorder to open the dishwasher door all the way! Location was nice, but missed the view of the ocean from the deck!!! We did have a nice time!

Response from the manager Thank you for your review. I'm happy you enjoyed his home and its location. I am sorry that you experienced some maintenance issues. Please let us know of these things while you are staying with us so we can resolve them during your stay. We gladly would have sent someone to spray for bugs and clean the pool more efficiently. Thank you again for your review. I hope you'll choose Emerald Isle Realty when planning your next vacation.

Our stay at Borrowed Time was every bit as good as we hoped. The new porch rockers were just great, the view terrific, and we had a fantastic vacation week. The weather was good all week, and the pool was so refreshing after a day in the sand. We are coming back next year.

“The Pool Made the Trip”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2010

This was our 23rd year at EI but our first on 2nd row with a pool. If you have young kids, this is a lifesaver. Only 4.5' deep at its deepest, our 4 and 7 year old grandchildren loved it. It was so hot that we beached it in am and pooled it in the PM. The kitchen is well stocked which was a pleasant surprise. Would love to see upgraded mattresses on twin beds downstairs and a tv in that room. Also, there is no king bed as stated. We loved our stay and have booked it for next year.
