- Very Good
We did enjoy this home and found its very comfortable and we felt at home. Only thing that needs improvement is there is mold on the air vents in the floors and our bedding had blood on it. so that turned us off to thinking the place was clean. we were very cautios the rest of hte week
“Great place but a few minor issues”
First the positives.. great location, price was great, great beach front, clean, comfortable. Just a few issues... the deck needs some serious love. Splinters were a major problem. Should just rip down and rebuild with that fake wood material. The heating element in the drier did not work. The hardware on the garage door was broken and unable to look the garage door, so anybody can come up to the house and basically get inside. And the wireless router may need updating, had to reset a few times each day because it constantly lost its connection. And one more thing with the deck, and outside electrical outlet would be great. 3.25 out of 4 thumbs up!

Improvements include: - New flat screen TV in the living room - New wireless router - New dryer - repairs to rope railing on walkway to the beach We just know you and your family will enjoy your next stay at Lookfar West so please call us to book your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
“Wonderful location --- adequate accommodations”
This was our second time staying at Lookfar West, with the first time being in 1995. They've done well maintaining it over the years. It wouldn't be a good choice if you are looking for a newer home. It is an older home, and I would agree with a previous review that said it probably was not the best for families with small children. The boardwalk is uneven (planks jutting up); the glass sliding doors are difficult to open; some of the windows don't open at all. The balcony upstairs did not feel safe, and we noticed there are no support beams underneath (the duplex on the other side had support beams as do most balconies on the island). There was no separation between the two sides of the duplex. Fortunately, the renters on the other side were not intrusive, but it would have been nice to have some type of privacy wall so that when you are on the deck you are not sitting with strangers. The house was well stocked -- everything we needed and more. They even had beach chairs, an umbrella, a gas and charcoal grill, bikes (however, a tire pump was needed because the tires were flat). Unlike a previous review that stated an issue with large groups on the beach, we did not experience that at all. We had an amazing time in Emerald Isle and the house was fine -- not luxurious, but overall a good, clean home in a fantastic location.
“Very Nice Rental.”
The rental was clean. Had a great view up or down the beach from the deck. The deck could use a little work but was still usable. The kitchen was well equipped. If you forgot to bring something with you,beach related, the owner had plenty of items available for you to use in the garage. Had a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation. The only thing that was missing was good weather.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Lookfar West. It was quite rainy during the week of your stay, but it sounds as though you made the most of it and enjoyed this home. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“We had a great time, in spite of some issues with the house”
We always have fun at the beach, so the house is mostly secondary in terms of the experience. This house just needs some major clean up and updating. I don't recommend it at all for small children as the deck is in major disrepair and there is construction material and trash all over. It had a certain charm and certainly a beautiful view, but I wouldn't rent it again unless it was majorly overhauled. It's also right next to a public beach access point, which means get up early and stake your spot on the beach or a family of 12 will be parked right in front of your house, which happened to us regularly.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Lookfar West. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed your time at the beach and hope you'll return. I have asked our maintenance department to assess the deck and remove the miscellaneous debris. I'm uncertain as to why anyone would be parking in front of your vacation home at this location as the beach access at this location is a pathway for vacationers and residents staying in homes which are second, third, and middle row. Please let us know if a similar instance occurs during your next vacation and we'll happily assist in handling it. Thank you again for your feedback. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation to Emerald Isle - 1-888-832-0140.
“relaxing with family”
we had numerous problems with air conditioning...the bed situatution was not ideal for our family (our kids are very tall, the twin beds were too short...the house was a little too small for our family in living space (kitchen, living room)
