“Was hoping for a little better”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have stayed many years at Emerald Isle and always arrive with certain expectations gathered from the rental price and the property pictures online. This house had both pros and cons. Cons: The bedroom with the Q bed stayed too warm and stuffy all week long as if AC was not working only in that room making for an uncomfortable stay for my daughter and husband. The realty office brought a fan promptly since the overhead fan only ran on a very slow speed, but it didn't offer much help for lowering the air temp; the house needs to be sprayed for roaches as I killed 1 each day for the first 4 days; the outside bathroom still had sand in the shower and on the floor from the prior week guests which I assume was simply overlooked by the cleaning crew; the full size bathroom needs full size towel racks and more surface space; kitchen was very small but functioned okay. The best features were the views, deck space and seating, easy access to the beach, good and constantly working wi-fi and comfortable beds which helped smooth over some of the noted disappointments. And the property description at the realty office does need to specify that the 4th bedroom is an open loft with no bathroom or TV and the 3rd bathroom is an outside access only bathroom.
