“Relaxing retreat with all of the things that you need from home.”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2016

Lovely upgraded Condo with everything that you need from home. Updated Master Bath was marvelous. Kitchen has wonderful appliances and the extra's that you wouldn't expect (crockpot). Recommend adding an umbrella for shade on the front deck.

“A nice family vacation ..”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2012

The view is excellent! We enjoyed early morings on the deck reading books, and afternoons on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Ocean Reef 3-a-2 is furnished nicely, a comfortable place to spend a week. We enjoyed staying here, for a much needed relaxing family vacation. Our only disappointment - we tried to reserve "same time next year" and were told that it was not available to rent next year.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 3 A 2. I'm so pleased to know that you enjoyed this condo and all which the community of Ocean Reef offers. Our records do indicate that 3 A 2 will not be rented for the 2013 vacation season, but we do manage many of the condos within Ocean Reef. Please call to speak with one of our vacation planners and they'll happily assist you in reserving a similar condo for your next Emerald Isle vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

The master bedroom door that leads onto the deck did not properly close, letting in hot air, hard to keep the room cool in the heat of august weather. Also the deck in where the sitting table was located was not properly secured, appears that several bolts were missing, my son was leaning over and the railing just about gave, could have been an unfortunte mishap. The condo was not cleaned when we arrived, the cleaning ladies arrived at 4:30-4:45 and we took owenership at 3:00pm. There were still remains in the condo from the previous people, things left in the fridge and also a plate of bacon left in the microwave. the restroom still had dirty trash, carpets dirty from sand and the master bathroom had a dirty sink mirrow, and hair and toothpaste in the sink.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 3 A 2. I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed to find some maintenance issues at the condo. These have been inspected and remedied since your stay. Please report such things as you experience them so we can work on them during your stay. I too am thankful no one was hurt. Our check in time is 4 p.m. but we will release keys to guests as early as 3 p.m. as a courtesy. Housekeeping and Island Essentials do have until 6 p.m. to finish their work. Upon releasing your keys early, we provide you with a yellow slip of paper stating just this and on it we ask that you not spread your items throughout the condo until housekeeping is complete. Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will revisit Emerald Isle and choose Emerald Isle Realty to host you. Please call us when you begin planning your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.

“Sabrina's 13th Birthday stay”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2011

We stay at Ocean Reef every year but were never at this unit before. The bed in one room looked like it had been peed on numerous occasions (I hope this isn't news to the owners), the couch had food under the cushions, and there weren't alot of places to store clothes or food. I was very worried that the numerous whatnots, candles, and objects on every surface and table were going to get damaged. Finally, I'm hopeful that the exterminator scheduled to come July 5th actually came (we didnt' see them but did see giant roaches crawling on the walls at night). On a positive note, the deck furniture and electronics were wonderful. With the exception of the couch, the place was clean and ready for us when we arrived.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 3 A 2. It pleases me to know that you arrived to overall tidy accommodations. Certainly, we gladly would have sent someone out to tidy up the area around the couch, had you let us know about it. We also could have had that mattress cleaned. Our properties are treated regularly to keep palmetto bugs and such at bay. This year they did seem to be more prevalent and we did schedule treatments as needed. Certainly, we'll pass your review on to the owner so they can decide whether or not to keep the personal nick-knacks out for guests or not. Thank you for your concern in keeping these items intact. Please call us when you begin planning your next trip to Emerald Isle as we'd love the opportunity to host you and your family again - 1-888-832-0140.

I have to keep this short, but wanted you to know two problems. The carpet in our unit was very very dirty and worn. Unappealing when you pay 2K a week to rent. I would also like to give you feedback on service. I found service to be slow. I made multiple requests to get a working vacuum cleaner and had problems with the garage door failing. Response time was slow and recquired multiple phone calls. Oh ya, the front gate only responds to the access code when keyed in fast. Until I figured this out, the entry code did not seem to work. Others had the same problem. Other than these problems, the accomodations were great. Liked having a w/d on site and loved easy access to both the beach and pool. Thanks for the easy check in and out...

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ocean Reef 3 A 2 and for your comments on the service which we provide. We do strive to quickly remedy any issues which are reported, but due to the busy nature of the season we must prioritize requests. For example, no air conditioning or a plumbing leak would be handled prior to delivering items to a property. I am happy to know that you found our express check in and check out to be convenient. Please call us when you begin planning your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Very nice view”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2010

This was an older condo. It was not clean. The first day I cut my toe in the kitchen. Someone broke the coffee pot. There was glass all over the floor. When we cleaned it up, we had a large amount of dirt, and glass. The carpet was very stained, and felt dirty.We absolutely loved the view. The pool was nice. The outside shower did not work.

“Nice Time but Condo Needs Updating”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2010

The condo is fine except for the carpet and furniture which are very dirty and should have been replaced before the season began.

Most of our properties do undergo a deep clean prior to the season but our housekeeping staff will be happy to come out to inspect the carpet and have it cleaned during your stay, if needed.
