“Great home for a family”
Great one level home with lots of separate spaces to gather. Kitchen well equipped. Convenient to sound and ocean.
“Great House-Great Vacation”
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Soundscape. This house provided ample living space for our family of 5 to spread out. The availability of 2 and 1/2 baths, plus the outdoor shower was great! The house was clean and well maintained. The private deck on the sound waters had a great view of both sunrises and sunsets. The house has extremely close beach access, at only a 3 minute walk to the water. A great house, at a great price, in a great location! We would stay there again!
“Private and Peaceful.”
This little house is surprisingly spacious. The back yard is so private and gorgeous as it fronts the Bogue Sound. It's only a short walk to the Ocean, so you have the best of both worlds. truly.
“Pleasant and relaxing, especially sitting on the deck overlookin”
The house is comfortable, clean, and well stocked. It was a real pleasure to sit on the deck overlooking the sound and relaxing. We had the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises to watch. Although the fish weren't biting, we still had fun trying! This house is close to a lot of the amenities of the island but quiet and peaceful. I would love to come back again.
With this house you get the best of both worlds. You are only a minute from the beach and you have the sound right in your back yard. The deck was the meeting place in the mornings, we all would sit there and look out over the sound and discuss that days plans. The steps leading down to the sound, you had your own private little sandy beach, my grandchildren had the best time this year down on that sandy little beach, (The ocean stayed real ruff all week), so the grandchildren and the adults were able to go into the sound and float and swim and at low tide catch crabs and dig for clams. the kitchen in this house was one of the best stocked kitchens, I have seen in the fifteen years we have coming to Emerald Isle. The only thing that was a little annoying was the hallway bathroom with only the small shower in it. It was hard to control the water temperature in that shower. But that was a minor problem all of the other bathrooms were fine. The two living areas are also great! The kids could watch TV in one room and adults could watch in the other. The back yard and the enclosed outside shower were great also. Over all you could not ask for a better rental property

“Peaceful and pleasant”
All the Emerald Isle Realty employees...from the folks who booked the reservation to the ladies who checked me in...were just as kind as they could be. I really liked that they encouraged me to call if I had any questions or problems, rather than seeming bothered by the interruption, as so many companies make you feel. The house was lovely, although there were a few maintenance issues that would make a big difference...such as the first thing you see as you walk up to the front door are hanging, broken window blinds on the front window. I didn't feel comfortable using the cooktop. I had not seen one like it before and the top was broken in a couple of places and there was a red light that was always on. I had planned to cook, but I just didn't feel comfortable using it and I wasn't quite sure how to use it. There has been some high tides on the sound that has left the beach littered with boards. As these may contain nails, it is a safety hazard for people staying there. It wasn't a problem for me, but I mention it to prevent future guests from being injured.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Soundscape and for your kind compliments of the staff at Emerald Isle Realty. I'm happy to know that you found the home to be lovely, but I'm sorry to hear of the maintenance issues which you experienced. The stove was reported to us by a previous guest, but it took a few days to receive the replacement. Certainly, we would have happily sent someone to the property to assist you in using it. I have reported the issue with the blinds and your concern about the boards on the Soundfront. I trust these items will be taken care of in a timely manner. Thank you again for your review. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
Nice house,comfortable and clean.The shower curtain rods are spring loaded and should be replaced with proper rods.It's not fun to get hit by these when they come loose.Also clean out the shower heads.The mineral build-up makes them spray everywhere if they spray at all.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Soundscape. It pleases me to know that you and your family arrived to find your accommodations clean and comfortable. I am sorry to hear of the issues with the showers and will have this checked out by our maintenance department. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation as we'd love another opportunity to serve as your host while you enjoy the beaches of Emerald Isle - 1-888-832-0140.
The house was nice and spacious, perfect size and location for our needs. The washer and dryer were a nice surprised amenity. When we arrive, there was no hot water, that was fixed in a couple of hours. There was no heat for the first two nights, and those were cold nights. After about a hour on the phone with TWC the problem with the cable was dignosed and we were informed the owner had downgraded and the box will not work in one room. Twc advised use to unplug the box, that way we could get the channel 14 news only on that set.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Soundscape. I'm pleased to know that you were nicely surprised when you arrived to the home and found that its size and location suited your needs. I am sorry to hear of the issues you experienced during your stay. Unfortunately, when a property first opens for the season, there are some kinks to be worked out. Our maintenance records indicate that the pilot light was the culprit for lack of heat and hot water when you first arrived. I'm glad we were able to get that lit so you could enjoy the majority of your stay. Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and allow Emerald Isle Realty another opportunity to serve as your host. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
“Our stay was pleasant and comfortable.”
Was disappointed when we entered a dirty cottage. Don't understand why we were given keys. If we had just been told, we would have gone for something to eat and visited other family who had moved in Sat. Housekeeping, howver, did a great job when they came. And responded quickly to the ant problem we experienced. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will return to the island for our vacation.
