“perfect location, cottage needs updating”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2014

The view was unbelievable! As soon as you walk in the room, all you can see is the view of the ocean. It is enough to take your breath away. However, there was only one really comfortable bed in the house. The rest of the mattresses really do need to be replaced. Understandably this is a rental, but the replacement needs to be done more often. The furniture was soiled as well. We just covered the furniture with bed sheets and it was fine. I am sorry this review could not be more stellar, but the cottage does need some attention.

Response from the manager Great news! The very responsive owner of Heaven Can Wait immediately replaced many of the mattresses throughout the cottage. In addition, they have re-covered or replaced the living room furniture so the property is in top condition.

“Great place”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2014

We loved this house, and plan to return again. The only two things that would be nice is a key to the sliding door lock, so that we don't have to walk all the way around to the front door to lock it and some new mattresses for the two rooms with larger beds. FYI, the laundry room is down by the garage in a locked room. The owners have done a nice job taking care of this house and furnishing it with neutral decor, we had a really nice time.

Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to let you know that since your stay all of the mattress sets within the home have been replaced. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and Heaven Can Wait for your next vacation.

Had a great time. So much to do. Mini golf, aquarium, movies ,fishing boat trips(about a 30 minute drive from house). Watching dolphins going by the house in the morning. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

“Great House at a great price!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2012

We loved this house. Eir was great from check in to repsonding to service calls. We had two issues that were addressed on the same day by friendly and helpful people (replaced the propane tank for the grill and a very slow drain in a baththub). There are many thoughtful things in the house that make vacation even better (labeled light switches, motion sensor lights in carport, internet and TV instructions, linens included) This was a comfortable house right on the ocean and we enjoyed our entire week there. Of course what we loved the most was the beach right outside our door.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Heaven Can Wait. This is a great house and the owners will be happy to know that you enjoyed their personal touches. I'm very happy to hear that our maintenance department was quick to accommodate your needs and I hope you'll revisit Emerald Isle soon.

We had a wonderful time and hope to go back again next year. This is our third year (I Think) and we've loved it every time. The house is furnished well and everthing is clean and neat. We did have some water bugs this year that we haven't had in the past, but I'm sure they will be taken care of. Ya'll do a great job. Thanks so much.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Heaven Can Wait. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed your vacation and we, too, hope you'll return next year.

“Pleasant Location”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2011

Very clean ocean front cottage. Four bedrooms each at a corner of the house separated by full size baths afforded some semblance of privacy when needed from the three kids, ages 5, 3, 1. Large main living area adjacent open and well equipped kitchen. The rental is really not particularly "kid friendly" having glass topped tables in the living and dining areas with squared corners. Lower kitchen cabinets are accessible to prying hands. This proved to be of little trouble as long as eyes were kept on the little ones. The outside shower under the house was great for showering after beach time, as was the washer/dryer for clothes and towels. A/C worked well during a very hot week. Easy check in and check out. Visits to the NC aquarium, great for kids, Fort Macon and Bouge Pier added diversity to a great beach vacation. All in all a nice place to rent and to stay oceanfront.

“First visit to Emerald Isle”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2011

Enjoyed every minute of our visit. Beautiful location. Only complaint would be that the restrictions for nights on the beach due to turtles nesting. Kids were not permitted on the beach with flashlights (no night time crab hunting) to avoid disturbing the turtles... which we never saw any evidence they were actually nesting at this time. If this is not something your party likes to do, then there is no problem with this property. It is perfectly laid out for a large family and very clean. Great location and service!

“The beach and waves were great”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2010

We really enjoyed our trip. Really like that the house is close to the beach, and what a beautiful beach.

“Beautiful way to wake up each morning!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2010

Heaven Can Wait was a wonderful house to vacation in. Enjoyed coffee each morning on the very large ocean front deck and gazed at the stars each evening! We were an extended family of nine and everyone had plenty of room to stretch out and relax. We would most definately stay here in the future.
