“a family vacation”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2014

Nice clean house, plenty of amenities, great clean pool, close to the business area. Kitchen supplied with everything needed. Bedding and furniture covers need updated.

“Amazing vacation”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2013

We were extremely pleased with our choice of a Tropical Dream. The house was spotless upon our arrival. The kitchen was very well stocked with a glasses, silverware, pots and pans. There were even several items in the pantry leftover from previous guests like spices, coffee, olive oil etc. We loved how close the beach access was to the house. We did think the pool was a bit small especially later in the week when more people joined us and it would have been nice to have a bit more living room furniture, but these are minor details - we would definitely rent this house in the future.

“This was a wonderful place to spend time with family.”

Our first time at Emerald Isle. It was great. Loved the house. Had everything we needed. The beach was awesome. Loved the view of the ocean from the house. Really enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the ocean. We have booked it for next year. Great value.

“A Tropical Dream provides every convenience and lots of fun!”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2013

We have stayed in the house twice and loved it. It's perfect for a multi-generational group as there is space to spread out and amenities to have different activities separately or together.The elavator makes things convenient even for older folks. The location is perfect since it's a very short walk for the beachgoers and the porch-sitters can see and hear the ocean to their hearts'content right from the house!The house is well appointed, the decor is lovely and the furniture is actually comfortable. The pool is small enough to feel safe even for the very young (Our youngest generation was 19 months!)but large and deep enough for whole family fun. The only small detraction is the lack of a really good barbecue grill.

“Almost perfect”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2013

Clean and well appointed. We enjoined great weather and a lovely ocean breeze the whole week. Only drawback was the Cable Box/ Modem went out on Tuesday night, and we didn't get it restored until Saturday. While it's nice to voluntarily "unplug" from our hectic lives, 3 days is a bit much when it's unvoluntary.

“Fabulous House”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2012

the location is perfect... the pool is really nice.. the house is very spacious and the kitchen is so well equipped. the living area needs a rug as it is very hollow in there... or maybe some additional living room furniture... very nice decks and plenty of nice deck chairs... this house could accomodate a big group and you would never feel crowded...

Response from the manager I agree, the location of this home and the space it provides make it an excellent place to enjoy a relaxing week at the beach. I'm so happy this was your experience and I hope you will revisit soon. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“An energetic time”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2012

Overall the service that we got @ the dream was very good. An issue with an upstairs outlet controlling the TV & modem was addressed after a call the following day. Access to be able to fill up the pool was also made possible by the realtor. The house was clean, only one bathroom with mold along the floor in the grout & mold in the ceiling in the upstairs powder room probably from a leaky roof. One condom wrapper was also found under a bed on the second floor. Kids will find just about anything! The house was very accomadating with bathrooms & bedrooms. No bugs to mention of like in other rental reviews. The pool was perfect for a three or four small children. The bike was nice for a morning ride & the house is very close to public access for the beach. Don't know that I would pay over 5 thousand for a week again @ the dream. The experience was probably worth 4.

“"A Tropical Dream" is a peaceful beach retreat with a beautiful”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2012

My experience with Emerald Isle Realty was easy from start to finish. The website was easy to use and the personal phone contacts were a pleasure. Everyone was friendly and aimed to please. We loved the house we rented. It was attractively furnished and the floor plan was perfect for our multigenerational group. The ocean view was so beautiful from the decks and the pool so inviting that I personally never even felt the need to go to the beach! The younger generations were thrilled that the beach access so close. Everything we needed was close at hand, groceries, restaurants, sundries...There are so many wonderful things to do but we were so happy at the house that we spent much of our time just hanging out there. In future years we'll venture further no doubt. We intend to spend many happy family retreats at "A Tropical Dream."

“August 2011”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2011

This was our 3rd trip to Emerald Isle and we loved the house and the location. Access to the oceanfront was great. The owners had decorated the house very well with "beach art" and the kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The pool was smaller than expected and the shallow end was deep for a family with small children. We would highly recommend that the owners added a slide lock to the door from the playroom to the pool area--too easy for children to gain access to the pool or perhaps they could change the deadbolt to a keyed lock. Overall loved the house, but would rent a house with a larger pool next time. Our grandchildren kept looking over at the pool at "Just Because" where we stayed last year and commenting that they liked that pool better!

“the Dream lives”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2011

Everything was very nice this year. this is the second time at a Tropical Dream and coming again in September for a wedding. Only problem we had was the elevator not working from Wednesday on. the property could use a little touch up in some areas, walls, doors, but overall everything was great.
