We stayed in Sound of the Sea 211 West on the week of June 14-21, 2015. This was our first visit with this Condo, and will probably be our last. We usually go to Atlantic Beach, but couldn't find an opening for this week where we usually stay. This condo was filthy! I think that since no one had rented... More

Excellent condos to stay if you able to climb the stairs. Not appropriate for elders. Great location . BEST BEACH IN NC. Clean, well kept, adorable. We loved it. Very close to the grocery store, great restaurants (try Riverside steaks and seafood), gagged community with security. Overall great experience, We will definitely be back!

My family and I needed a condo for 4 "Stat" for a weekend engagement party. Our daughter-in-law found this on short notice and it was great. This was one of the few options less than a full one week stay, and the price was less than most other places. Units are appropriately appointed for the beach. A downside was that... More

We had an awesome time at the complex, clean pools, grounds kept up nicely! We would stay at this complex again in a heartbeat, but not this unit! The housekeeping staff must have done next to nothing as it was not the cleanest (maybe get another cleaning service). The location of this unit is the best in the complex!! Awesome... More

We have stayed at Sound of the Sea many times over the last 10 years. I have stayed in both of the buildings and they both have fantastic views. They have 2 pools (one is only open after September) and two ways to walk to the beach. It is very convenient to shopping, grocery store and places to eat. We... More

Condos are all independently owned and upgraded, so your individual experience will vary on the unit. Our unit was last updated in the 90s, but was clean and well-maintained. One bedroom's closet housed the air handler and was exceptionally noisy, making that room pretty difficult to sleep in. The beds varied from "fine" to "rock-hard." I'd give the unit itself... More

We stayed in 202W. The views of the sea were gorgeous. The condo was very clean and had plenty of extras we didn't expect. (dishwasher tabs, garbage bags, extra toilet paper). The beds were very hard and the master bed faces the balcony and the vertical blinds do a terrible job of keeping the morning sun out. We were awake... More

Apparently this place is in the flight path of the local Marine base. It's 10:18pm and the Harriers have been flying over ever 10 minutes for the past hour. The room, unit 302, needs work. Terrible paint job, front door needs replaced, kitchen cabinets are like cardboard, replace the mirrors and all of the closet doors throughout. It just feels... More

Just got back from our vacation to Emerald Isle where we stayed at Sound of the Sea. The views from the balcony were amazing and the conc was in excellent condition. Our condo was on the 3rd floor and there were no elevators which made it difficult to carry our luggage up and down to unload and pack the car.... More

Wasn't overly impressed but was definately satisfied. Can't beat the location. Clean, private area with a good level of pricing. Overall was pleased, it's a quality place. Only downside is the beds we were in were like rocks, but that could be condo specific.
