“Awesome Experience = Awesome Memories.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My Husband, Myself, Daughter and her two children take a family vacation every year right before school starts..We love the ambience of the west coast Gulf beaches. It was a day trip that introduced us to Emerald Isle, we contacted Rental Resorts and set up our week stay.
We chose a three bedroom 1300 sq ft condo # 103..The owners had paid attention to details...
it was very clean/ modern furniture and attention to detail was noted. Everything needed regarding cooking..it was a fully equipped kitchen.( plus there is a common area grill )
The balcony overlooked the private/heated pool and we were right on the beach.... with beautiful/awesome sunsets/sunrise...really enjoyed the morning coffee...Nights were very quiet and the 24 hr security guards were very friendly and helpful. We met several people who have been returning for years...which made us very comfortable.. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for an upscale ( yet affordable ) family vacation...We look forward to re-visiting Emerald Isle again....There are several great restaurants and a " Candy Kitchen "..in the area,
I recommend a visit, trust me you won't be disappointed....

Stayed in June 2013 - Room 401. Everything was great! The view was incredible, we even saw a dolphin in the gulf! Everyone was very nice, both the other residents and we met a few owners. The pool area is just for residents so it was very private. Right on the beach! The kitchen and unit was clean and functional, nicely decorated. We will be back!

Just arrived at room 101, absolutely shocking. Dirty doesn't even cover it. The dining table has a crust of dust on that u could write "clean me" into. The furniture is 80s maybe earlier. The sliding door to the balcony, doesn't work. And there's a layer of mould inthe shower. Phone the rental company but got a idiot saying "well you picked it" if the pictures on the site are more honest. Like the ones I've had take to prove the dirt. No one is their right mind would stay in this room, and its not cheap either. It needs a damn good cleaning!

I have stayed in many other rooms in the emerald isle and this is by far the worse in this building.

Its been a wasted day of our vacation!

We rented 2 units at Emerald Isle through ResortRentals.us and it was fantastic! The units were beautiful, clean and so convenient! Each unit provided a spectacular view of the beach and water. Resort Rentals was so helpful with all of our questions and concerns and made our stay that much more enjoyable and completely worry free.
It is great for families (although not spring breakers) and I would highly recommend Emerald Isle to anyone.
We will definitely stay there again!
P.S. Be sure to check out the Conch Repulblic (restaurant/bar) just down the street! Great happy hour!

My family stayed for a week and loved every minute, such a nice beach and condo for our family of five. Really felt like home from the first minute, made our trip far from home a pleasure. I would recommend this building for anyone looking for a quiet, safe, and centrally located stay on a great beach. Thank you

We have stayed at this property many times over the past 15 years and continue to go back because of the location and the quiet atmosphere. The condos are a bit outdated but the property is well maintained. The location couldn't get much better; directly on the beach, good restaurants and shopping within a very short distance, fantastic views of the beach and gulf. Many owners live onsite and take pride in keeping the property neat and seeing that the condo rules are followed, so this is not a place for energetic kids or spring break students.

Room Tip: Two bedroom upper condos on NE side (unit ending in '4') best for sunsets

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

We stayed here in September 2011 for three weeks and I have to say after being slightly worried by the previous reviews I was expecting something awful.....hoever I thought the accommdation was lovely, due to the time of year the building was quiet but that meant' for the first week and a half we had the pool area to ourselves. As for the deco I really think that depends on what room you are given because ours was certainly not dated and it was nice to have access to the apartment laundry room. The views of the beach are fabulous and worth the money to stay there!! Excellent location to many amazing restaurants (highly recommend the Conch) and also shopping venues and of course the apartments are directly on the beach. We had no complaints about JC Resorts, in fact we had two rental cars and they were friendly enough to allocate a car parking space at one of their other condos which was two minute walk. I loved this apartment/condo, and look forward to staying there again in September 2012!!!

Room Tip: If you are able to request a room, floor 3 is suppose to be the more modern condo.
