“Served our purposes...BUT”
Dishwasher ineffective (dishes came out with some type of deposit all over them), faucets and other "bright work" not taken care of or in poor repair with deposits that could be removed but were not (I actually took a paper towel and removed some filth and calcium deposits), cold water faucet would not shut off in bathroom & shut off valve below the sink was stuck in on position, caulk in bathroom shower areas was discolored, there were no toilet brushes, cursory job of vacuuming (should not have to call to have someone come back), towel rod about to come off the master bath wall, dryer was inoperable due to clips on the lint screen being broken, and the flood light over bar area would cycle on and off. The entire interior was in desperate need of paint (both walls and baseboards) and general maintenance. We are owners of a rental property ourselves and expect everything to be well taken care of. Cleaning, such as we found in this condo would result in our finding new cleaning personnel. While we provide everything guests would need, we understand that not all properties provide paper products, soaps, detergents, etc. This review is not talking about that sort of thing. The place, although situated in a wonderful location, has a "worn" look about it. The owners are definitely not getting their money's worth from the cleaning and maintenance people!!! Kitchen knives were dull with no sharpener being available. We were part of a large family gathering and were able to see other properties rented by the rest of our large group. They were in much better condition and much better stocked with everyday items.
Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. I am sorry to hear of your disappointment in the condition and cleanliness of the property when you arrived. I understand that it isn't desirable to call for housekeeping to come back out, but our housekeeping department does guarantee their work and if a property isn't cleaned to your standards, we will happily send another crew out to clean again. Thank you for your feedback. I did check our maintenance records and saw that the items you mentioned have been addressed. I hope you and your family will revisit Emerald Isle for your next vacation and allow Emerald Isle Realty to assist with your plans.
“Enjoyable, relaxing week”
Checkin and checkout processes were smooth and efficient. The unit was very well maintained and well stocked. The master BR with large bath was comfortable. Being close enough to walk to the beach, and relax on the front deck to the sound of the ocean was exactly what we wanted. (Couple possible additions to the unit would be to have beach chairs and umbrella available, so you don't have to pay to rent or buy them; and to have some hangers in the closets.) The location was convenient and we enjoyed restaurants from Swansboro up to the causeway. Beach area was uncrowded and the pool, while small, was nice as well.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and for your suggestions. We enjoyed having you as our guests and hope you will revisit Emerald Isle soon. Please call us to begin planning your next family vacation on the Crystal Coast - 1-888-832-0140.
“Another Sunny Week at the Beach!”
We absolutely love coming to Emerald Isle and always try to stay at Ocean Reef. The condo's are so well appointed and are right on the beach which is always so inviting!! The Staff at Emerald Isle Realty are very gracious and so willing to help with anything we need. We started coming to E.I when our children were very young and they still love this beach and condo complex today!!! One year we are going to bring the whole family down here and then we will have to rent the duplex and for that time...we can't wait!!

“Poor except for the weather”
first thing when we walked in was the carpet was filthy!We should have made it be shampooed but did not want to miss a day or two of our vacation. the oven temp is way off and the dish washer leaves a powdery residue on everything. The two rockers were broken and my husband spent an afternoon trying to repair them to no avail. the general maintenance is awful, dead shrubs, awful door frames and casings, etc. But my biggest complaint was it was not clean. I actually got down on my hands and knees and cleaned the floor moldings and behind the master door because of the dust!Needs painting!
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 17 B 1. I am happy to know that the weather cooperated nicely with your vacation and hope you enjoyed your time in Emerald Isle.

We are happy to address all maintenance and housekeeping concerns so you aren't left dissatisfied during your vacation. Since your stay, the carpets have been steam cleaned and I have reported the maintenance items you mentioned. I trust these will be remedied quickly. Thank you again for your feedback.

“One week of bliss.”
We stayed in Ocean-Reef for one week. It was a lovely experience starting with the reservation process! Originally from New york where everyday is a hustle, this one week was pure bliss! The location was 5 minute walk to the beach, absolutely delightful. At night the sound of the waves was so soothing it definitely helped you sleep like a baby. In the morning, we woke up to the lovely sound of birds, so peaceful. The accommodation was well furnished, beautiful and clean. A well equipped kitchen if you decide to cook and a washer and drier too.(really useful after we got back from the beach) The location was about 30 minutes drive to all interesting sites, (historic sites, museum, aquarium, boat rides and sea food restaurants. ) The service was great, we had a welcome pack with details about where to go and things to do during our stay. We called once to have the internet looked at and maintenance responded promptly. The only thing I was not pleased about was the internet connection it was so slow. That aside we would be back. Thank you Emerald realty

“Very nice and - quiet”
We came south for spring break and it was a great trip. Our location was great. Beach access is easy use with a cart or cooler. Condo was nice with good beach views. We would definitely return.

“Fun times at Emerald Isle!”
Our rental at Ocean Reef was nothing fancy, just a good quality beach rental in a nice, quiet location with easy access to the beach. The furniture was standard beach quality that was starting to show a little wear from usage. The home could use a little updating but overall would stay here again on our next trip to Emerald Isle.

“East and Comfortable”
Well maintained & excellent value. This property suited our needs for a weekend stay in the off season. We love Emerald Isle and have become more familiar with this area through our experience with Emerald Isle Realty and quality properties such as this.
