“Emerald Isle #2309 is among the best PCB has to offer”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We stayed at this penthouse condo for a week in December 2013, and were very happy with our experience. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo was perfect for our family of four. The condo was very clean, tastefully decorated, and thoughtfully furnished with pretty much everything a traveling family would want for a relaxing beach vacation. We loved the enormous balcony, and enjoyed hearing the ocean as we fell asleep at night. It was great to have a stackable washer/dryer available so that we didn't have to drag home huge loads of dirty laundry. The owner, Brigitte, was great to work with. I highly recommend this particular unit. It sounds like other units are not as well maintained.

I can imagine how busy PCB might be during the summer, but Emerald Isle is great during the off season. No crowds, no waiting for the elevator. The pools and the hot tub on the ground floor were nice and clean, and the gas grills were a nice perq. And FYI, this building is located on the western end of PCB, which is quieter than the eastern end. The grocery store is only a mile away down Front Beach Road, and the mall (Pier Park) is 1.5 miles away. If you are looking to club/bar hop, you're better off looking on the eastern end of Front Beach Road. We perferred the quieter setting.

Room Tip: the cleanliness and upkeep of each unit varies, so make sure you do research on the unit you're...

We stayed 4 days the weekend after Memorial Day. Our condo was clean and had a great view. I loved leaving the balcony doors open at night so we could hear the water below.

Plenty of places to eat and shop to the east of the property. We filled the fridge up and had plenty of equipment to cook and eat with.

Room Tip: We were in a 2 bedroom corner condo with a sofa bed in the living room. The space slept 6 comfortab...

A bunch of friends went for week getaway. This is a great location. There are restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, bars and Buddy's Seafood(personal favorite) within a mile. The beach was beautiful and were the sunsets. We went in November so the cold water was expected but there is a heated pool, wet sauna and HOT hottub. It was perfect. The fitness center is rather sad but we found several great gyms that were reasonable and close to workout. Highly recommend.

I will not return to this place. Our room was filthy, items broken, maintenance carrying out doors to laundry when we arrived. I have so much to list I don't have room. Just don't stay here unless you go through a private owner and get references before booking. We have vacationed with our family to PCB for 20 years and by far this was our worst experience. We still had fun, saw beautiful sunsets and have made great memories, but we won't be back to Emerald Isle. Pool area was small the only thing they have going for them is the hot tub. I would never come here in the summer you definitely would be fighting for chairs, parking and elevators. My daughter came down separate with her boyfriend and they charged $20.00 parking fee? Never replaced the doors on laundry area so all week it sounded like a freight train roaring through our condo when we did laundry. Bathroom drains clogged. 3 spoons in condo, yes 3! Old TV and electronics, no Wi-Fi, just downright dirty. I could go on forever, but you get the point.

The condo and resort grounds were very clean and nice. The beach was beautiful this time of year. I would be hesitant to stay here in peak season because the pools are not very large, and if you had a large number of kids, it would be terrible.

Our family of five decided to try a condo for the first time this year. After hours of scouring reviews on several different websites, I chose this gem. It's perfectly located away from all the traffic in a nice resort with a heated indoor pool which is particularly useful on chilly nights and mornings or rainy days. Parents enjoy that they can supervise children in the pool while relaxing in the hot tub right beside it. Happily, wait time at elevators was minimal and parking was convenient. The luxurious and spacious unit exceeded our expectations. We slept exceptionally well on comfortable mattresses and clouds of quality bedding. Because the bedrooms were split by bathrooms, loud children were not heard from the master. We enjoyed the oversized balcony where we observed dolphins on several mornings and afternoons. Our boys played with provided beach toys and watched one of the children's videos on a rainy day. For a family of five, having a kitchen saves enough money to do more activities, but once you arrive, you may not want to. :)

Room Tip: Beach Daze (unit 1008) is fantastic! I would recommend a unit that is not managed by a company, but...

This was our first time at Emerald Isle, but about 20 times to PCB. Emerald Isle was great, unit was very clean and the property was well taken care of. We met the General Manager at the pool one afternoon, Mark, a great guy, great personality! We had no issues with staff or the unit, just the way it should be. We will visit Emerald Isle on or 2014 trip, it won't be here soon enough!
