“One of the best”
Sea Maiden West was well worth the cost. Truly l enjoyed the duplex, the beach, location, all. Perfect time of year to vacation.
“Time for a Change”
Emerald Isle is indeed beautiful and a lovely place to vacation and this includes not only the beaches but the town and surrounding areas. We've rented in Emerald Isle for many years and I have to say that we have become increasingly disappointed in the homes. This is especially true of Emerald Isle Realty properties. Because of of Sea Maiden West, we think we have reached a tipping point and may not vacation in Emerald Isle for the foreseeable future because the cost has exceeded the value and realty company service has been on the decline, in our experience. This house had water stains on the walls and ceilings, dead creatures in plain view of the so called cleaning crew, that clearly did not clean. Issues included screens ripped out of frames and flapping in the breeze, an unusable bathroom, unusable outside shower, missing towel rack in the master bath, pre-cleaning did not include vacuuming the floors (apparently), dead cockroach in living area on the fire place with ants crawling all over it, Abilify pill on the floor in the master bedroom (medication very toxic to young children) and ants in the master bedroom as well as the kitchen. We thoroughly completed the Emerald Isle Realty survey on this property and indicated all of the issues we experienced. Unfortunately we have had to share issues with Emerald Isle Realty before but apparently they have no interest in following up with their customers because in neither case have we heard from them in any way.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. It is my understanding that someone from our guest services team did reach out to you shortly after your stay. I do want to again apologize for the condition the property was in when you arrived. This is unacceptable, and it was our oversight. Our housekeeping director was made aware of the matter to ensure there is not a recurrence at this or any other property we manage. Again, I thank you for taking your time to let us know of your dissatisfaction. As always, if you ever do arrive to a property in less than tidy shape, please let us know so we can work to bring it up to our high standards of cleanliness.
“January-February, 2014 Stay at Sea Maiden West”
Lovely unit. Clean, decently furnished, and super location. Emerald Isle Realty took care of our service needs that developed a couple of times. Propane delivery for fireplace could have been more prompt but it eventually happended. Maid service we obtained was excellent. Very nice and comfortable place to stay. Owners are great to work with! We've looked at a number of units in the area of Sea Maiden West & Sea Maiden is superior to others. Definitely recommend it.
Response from the manager I'm so happy to know that you enjoyed your extended stay in Emerald Isle. You certainly did see some weather that is uncharacteristic of our area. We hope you will return so please call us if we can assist you in planning your next trip - 1-888-832-0140.
“Disappointed in this home.”
This home needs updated , from the showers and tubs to the beds. Which were hard. The carpet in the living room needs cleaned or replaced , you come right off the beach on to it. The dryer is old and rusted and takes forever to dry. The worst thing was the palmetto bugs, aka cockroaches. We had a nine month old in this house that was crawling on the floors! I understand that this time of year is bad for the palmetto bugs, however, I'm sure they could be controlled with proper treatment. Needless to say we will not be renting this house again.
“Another great week on Emerald Isle”
This year as in 2010 we rented both the Sea Maiden East and Sea Maiden West so that our entire family could enjoy our stay on the ocean. As in the past it was a wonderful experience and our five daughters and their families all love the Sea Maiden as do my wife and I.The eleven grand children, 3 grade school, 4 high school, 3 college and one in the Naval academy all love Emerald Isle, the ocean, and especially the Sea Maiden. It is always clean and really seems like home to us since we have stayed in it so many times. I believe we were the 2nd renters after it was built. We love the location and wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Its so close to all the places we want to visit. We love everything about the area and hope to return soon.

“A Wonderful Monthly Getaway”
We had a most enjoyable monthly rental in Sea Maiden West. The Emerald Isle Realty staff are just truly great to work with. We phoned maintenance on three ocassions and each call was very promptly and professionally handled. Can't say enough nice things about the entire group. Elaine Teachy is super to work with and handled our long term rental arrrangements in a very capable manner. As a result, we have rented Sea Maiden West again for the months of both January and February, 2014. Elaine was most helpful in getting those arrangements made for us. The unit is nicely furnished and the location is great. We look forward to our return to the island next January.

“Terrific for large families”
Well stocked kitchen and the views are beautiful. Private balcony off the master. Just needs two things: propane so the fireplace will work. That would be great on cold evenings. Broken chairs on master deck. Otherwise, a great property
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Sea Maiden West. I'm happy to know that htis home served your family so nicely and I hope you will return. I have alerted our maintenance department about the need for fuel for the fireplace and certainly we would have gladly refilled this for you during your stay. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next trip to Emerald Isle and we'll happily reserve Sea Maiden West for you again - 1-888-832-0140.
“A wonderful week at the beach!”
We booked Sea Maiden West before really reading the reviews, and when we finally did look at them we got a little nervous. While most of them were positive overall, there were some hints that the place was outdated and run down. So when we arrived, we were very, very happy and surprised to find everything in top shape. It looks like they've been paying attention to comments and working hard on the place. It was immaculate and well-decorated. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with dishes, and everything was laid out great. The kids loved the new TV. We agreed that it was the best rental we've ever had (but we tend to stay at the low to mid range ones), and we'd definitely seek it out again. The location is great; I was able to bike to town, and the new Portofino restaurant is right up the road. Next door to that is a beach gear rental shop, and we rented kayaks and paddled around the sound. Everything was very convenient to the house, without feeling like we were in the middle of town. The only quibble we had is that the deck is really small, especially for a property that sits back from the beach. We found that we didn't sit on it at all, in contrast to our usual pattern of staying out there late into the evening. There just wasn't any space. But overall, we loved Sea Maiden West, and would definitely stay there again!

“Sea Maiden West”
Sea Maiden West is a nice duplex overall in a good location. We found the unit to be in need of a lot of work(painting,showers,window repair,carpet cleaned) and the kitchen items need updating and replacing. No extra blankets or pillows.
