Emerald Island

Just wondered if anyone has stayed here recently? We have friends that just got back and they have told us to stay clear of this resort.

We are looking for the month of September for a family reunion. Our friends said the house they rented was very nice, but that the property itself has gone into deep decline since their trip last year. Don't know if its an influx of foreclosures or what. I don't want to bring 20 family members into a place that doesn't look cared for. Any suggestions for this area?

Thanks in advance. PS- We will have 5 kids- ages 5-21

http://www.stayatemeraldisland.com/ This has lots of info about it. You can find the floor plans for the type of home you're renting under the "Renting a home" tab.

We visited Emerald Island in July 2011 and a friend of mine has just returned from there in July 2012.

We didnt think the area was in any way shape or form neglected and neither did my friend as she raved about the resort on her return....

In my opinion I felt the resort was remarkably well tended. I daresay though that some holidaymakers may not understand the necessity to ensure bins are kept closed and no loose rubbish left lying as animals can get access easily. Raccoons can be a bit of a problem.

Make sure you lock all doors etc as there have been a few burglaries on EI in the past few months 2 of which were vacation homes .

As long as you get a nice clean home this place is amazing. The community itself is beautiful
