“Nice property, poor service”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018
person found this review helpful

Oscar's Place was very nice. Relatively new and well-equipped kitchen, recently painted throughout the property, and very nice pool. The very steep driveway made getting in and out a bit sporty and further challenging because the neighbors parked their monster trucks and other large vehicles on the shoulder very close to the driveway. This made it impossible to see oncoming traffic, which was traveling at 45 mph (the speed limit) or more. The water pressure throughout the property was miserable. When the clothes washer was filling, no water would come out of the kitchen faucet. Taking showers was an unpleasant experience even when the dishwasher or clothes washer were not filling. I repeatedly complained to Emerald Isle Realty by phone and by e-mail. I was told that a water pressure booster would be installed; that never happened. If I found out that the owner declined the booster installation due to cost, I would rate the property as 1 out of 5. But I think it was the incompetence of Emerald Isle Realty staff that resulted in the problem not being resolved. I was also disappointed by the lack of keyless entry to the property. We had to pick up keys, keep track of them during our stay, and return them upon our departure. Other real estate companies offer keyless entry.

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
