“A Penthouse View”
Nice furnishings, light and airy. Close to walkway to beach. Outside shower. Great views from windows and porches. Kitchen well-appointed.Stairs were a little tricky. Two people tripped on narrow stair tread. Bathrooms were small. Little counter space and only one bathroom on level with 3 bedrooms .Mirror over sink was so low my husband couldn't his face to shave. Ample parking under house and in driveway. Quiet area. Refrigerator door would not close completely. Two mornings we awoke to warm milk and melted butter because door was open night long. Thermostat on middle level. Often too warm in living area upstairs.
Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed this home and found all you needed to enjoy your stay. I am sorry to hear that the refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed and the upstairs living area wasn't a comfortable temperature. Please let us know about such things during your stay so we can work to make you more comfortable so your time with us is nothing short of enjoyable.
“Nice House and Location”
This was one of the nicest homes we've stayed in and was perfect for our family of five. It's not a big house, but it is nicely appointed. The house was very clean and well maintained. There are no games for a rainy day so bring some if you think you'll want them (there were plenty of puzzles though). There were no movies either but there is a DVD player, so you might want to bring those too. The beach access is just across the road and over slightly and the beach was not crowded at all here. There were no photos of the kitchen but it was nice and there is an island with a few chairs which worked well for us.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The location and view are awesome. Home is well maintained, nicely decorated and equipped with cable TVs in each room. Great decks and deck views. Would definitely stay here again!

“A Very Good Choice”
We rented aPV for the week of 9/18/11 and we were not disappointed. The house was very clean, pest-free and adequately outfitted. We've always liked reverse floor plans at the beach, and the top deck has nice views of the ocean despite being one lot back. The location is very convenient with regard to beach access. The Hdtv/cable setup was also appreciated, especially since we had a couple rainy days. The only issue we had during the stay involved the wireless router, which in hindsight had probably been manipulated by the renter from the prior week and had not been reset. The owner was very conscientious and stayed on top of the problem until it was resolved. He called the house several times from his home in Ohio until the problem was resolved.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at A Penthouse View. It pleases me to know that this home provided all the comforts which you wanted and I'm glad to know that the owner was diligent in resolving the issue you experienced with the internet.

“A very pleasanr house close to the beach”
The house is very pleasant, nicely decorated and very well equipped. It is very well located, near the beach and close to Emerald Isle shopping area. Also we appreciated that the owner called during our stay to check if everything was fine. We'd have liked to eat outiside on the terrace but as the living is on top floor it was often too windy and without shade.

“Lovely place but not set up for folks flying in for 4 days”
We are a family of 4 who travels quite light and enjoys all the outdoor activity we can find. Great airfare and curious about NC southern coast brought us here for our only family holiday. Penthouse view was a good location for beach access, nice views, lovely deck and close to downtown. The largest issue was that it was just not set up for a 4 night (we paid for 7 nights) visit. We expected there to be at least a few rolls of toilet paper, kleenex in the bathrooms and dish detergent. Our mistake. If we had driven we could have brought literally everything from salt and pepper to napkins and toilet paper (not sure I'd want to do all that organizing for a week!). If we went shopping it would have cost us quite a bit to stock up for such a short time. Most renters we met had driven and were from the south. We've rented many homes across North america and the lack of basics here was the only surprise. The owners were lovely to call and check in. They immediately called cable company when internet was down and next day it was resolved. Beach was full of surf and great to walk/run on daily. I'm not sure I would advertise the Emerald Realty "breakfast" on departure. Store bought donuts, fruit cups in ice and coffee w/out real milk or cream doesn't seem to fit the otherwise strong image they convey.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at A Penthouse View. I'm happy to know that you found the home to boast nice views and an easy beach access. I am sorry that you were disappointed when you didn't find toiletry items within the home. We do try to express the need to bring these items to each of our renters and as a reminder, we include it in our Vacation Info Guide which accompanies your rental agreement. I am pleased to hear that the owner of A Penthouse View was accommodating and quickly resolved the issue with the internet. We invite guests, who wish to get a jump on their trips home, to enjoy a continental breakfast which is a grab and go of the items which you mentioned. If you're looking for a more elaborate meal, we're happy to provide suggestions of local restaurants which serve breakfast. Thank you again for your feedback.

“Delightful getaway...peaceful with spectacular ocean view”
Lovely property. Excellent location. Quietly delightful. Felt we had our own private beach. Only one negative we experienced - no air conditioning upon arrival...no big deal except for the 95+ heat wave we were experiencing. Air conditioning unit broke and was replaced late in the week of our stay. Owner was on top of it and rental office brought in window units. Plan to come back next year:)
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at A Penthouse View. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed your stay despite the setback with the air conditioner breaking down. It pleases me to know that we and the owner of this home quickly responded to your call and were able to provide comfort to you with the window units. I'm further pleased to let you know that the HVAC at this property has been replaced since your stay so your next visit to A Penthouse View will provide even more comfort and enjoyment. Please call us to book your vacation today - 1-888-832-0140.
We came here to rest and see the beach. The stay met all our expectations.

“Highly Recommended 2nd Row Rental”
The single word that summarizes our stay (this was at least our fifth stay here) is great. Great view, great beach location, great cottage, great value, great beach access & great rental experience!,

We enjoyed our vacation very much. The house was beautiful and located on a dead-end road; the neighborhood was quiet - just what we needed this year. The reverse floor plan provided amazing ocean views. There is a sandy beach access across the road to the right of the driveway, but we recommend the short walk to the wooden walkway at the end of the road (turn left out of the driveway). The house was immaculately clean and the laundry facilities were great; everything was provided - all we had to bring were clothes, food, and beach towels. The only negatives: 1) The staircase - not really suitable for young children and elderly people because it gets narrow in the corner and is more like a spiral staircase than a normal staircase. 2) The bunk-bed room is very difficult to cool. 3) The AC breaker tripped 4 or 5 times during our first couple of days in the house. Once the house reached a consistent temperature, the breaker was fine. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives, though. I think we left the house in our car maybe 4 times during our week-long stay; we had practically everything we needed - more channels than we could watch, a cd player, the beach, merely a short walk across the road, and lots of sunshine! We will definitely come back Emerald Isle, NC.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at A Penthouse View. It pleases me to know that you found all you needed within this home to enjoy your vacation and I agree, the location is ideal. Since your stay, the HVAC has been replaced so I trust there will be no more issues with the A/C not cooling certain rooms or tripping the breaker. Additionally, the property has a new stove, and the upstairs deck has been replaced. Please call us to book your next stay at A Penthouse View - 1-888-832-0140.
