The view was awesome but the sink in the main bathroom had no water pressure and dribbled. The shower did not drain out.

“Cozy with spectacular view”
This house is prettier than the pictures show. It is very comfortable for a couple or a family of up to 4 people. The dishwasher was not hooked up, and even when we reported the issue nobody showed up to install it. We did not use the laundry facility as it was under the house, and was old and rusty. Besides those two issues, the house is extremely well equipped and shows it is well taken care off. We had a great time.
My daughter and I stayed in Red Fish for 3 nights. Our first impression was not good, as it appeared to be sparsely furnished and the kitchen was not well-equipped. The next morning it began to grow on us. We did see roaches, which is not uncommon in the South and there were only a couple of live ones. (Found a really big dead one in the bathroom!). Our only real complaints was the very small TV and the poor hook-up (we had to unplug the cable box to plug in the DVD player, and the reception was not great. Missed having a boardwalk deck to sit on, but I understand there used to be one that was destroyed by a hurricane. Enjoyed reading the comments by previous tenants in the 3 journals left in the cottage, and there was a great selection of books to read. We did not have time to take advantage of this, but it was a nice addition. The living room furniture was not comfortable, and the little swivel chair needs to be removed or undergo a thorough cleaning. Overall, an average accommodation.
“Never wanted to leave!”
This was our families first time at Redfish/Bluefish west. We had an amazing time loved every minute of it. Access to the beach and to the city made this a perefect get away for us.
“Loved being oceanfront”
Location was great. We had an issue with the hot water which was taken care of within 24 hours. The TV in the main area of the house is old and small--would be nice to have a larger flat screen--and we had some difficulty with reception. If you're a golfer, you get free membership to a country club for your stay which includes use of their swimming pool. It's great getting the linen supplied. Bathrooms needed cleaned better--cleaned them upon arrival--including wiping the floor.
“A really nice beach trip!”
Our recent stay @ Redfish/Bluefish was pretty good over all. The house could have been cleaner, and it was definately in need of new furniture (especially a sofa and love seat). The toilet paper holder in the main bathroom kept falling off the wall, and we also had a few unwanted visitors (roaches!!) while we were there. On the bright side, it had plenty of room for us, and we really enjoyed the picnic table out on the porch. Overall, we had a pleasant stay, and I will definately rent through Emerald Isle Realty again, although I don't think I will get this particular house again!!

“Location and beach proximity were wonderful!”
The location and type of expereince were relaxing and refreshing - just what I hoped for and appreciated. Overall accommodations were good but showing age. Negative aspects were - I could not find any water diverter in the bath to be able to take a shower so I had to take baths instead; unappealing mildew in shower, and the door key only worked on the street side door. No key for beach-side/deck door, so it had to be left unlocked or you walk from the beach around to the street side door. This could be fixed for a one time fee of under $150 and provide a much better visitor experience.

“Wonderful, beautiful, relaxing”
We truly enjoyed our stay at Redfish/bluefish on Emerald Isle. The house was very clean and just the right size for our family of four. The location was perfect. The beach was very pretty and secluded. We hope to return again.
“Small but somewhat enjoyable”
This home is in need of some updating especially in the bathroom! Had a hard time figuring out how to make the shower work. The furniture in the living room isn't very comfortable. Other than the bathroom the house was ok. Loved how close it was to the beach.

“A great value!”
We love being able to open the door and be AT THE BEACH! We don't want to have to mount and expedition nor listen to tons of neighbors partying at all hours. We always visit after labor day - the water is warm, weather is usually good, and the huge crowds are gone. The local stores are running sales, there is typically no wait for a table at the restaurants and it makes a great time to sit back, relax, turn off the voice of civilization, and walk the beach at sunrise, watch the dolphins feed along our beach and spend time reconnecting with family. The realty company has, as always been a pleasure to work with- from the tons of questions we always seem to have before we book, to making check in easy- who knew there was a drive thru !?? We chose a duplex in order to conserve on the cash flow and flew this year instead ofhaving to make the several state drive. It was a cute little place, with all of the neccessities. You can always wish for more, but isn't it nice when you are wishing for things like a blender for frozen drinks instead of a working bathroom!! We only wished we could have gotten more of our family to come along for the trip this year!
