Thank you for your review of your stay at Changing Tides East. I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your choice for a rental this year.

I did check our maintenance and housekeeping records and they don't indicate any service calls during the time of your stay. Please let us know of any dissatisfaction or issues you have as you experience them so we can work to correct them for you, during your stay. I am pleased to let you know that I have had no similar reports from any guests of Changing Tides East in our 2011 rental season. Also, the refrigerator was replaced in this property and wireless interne has been added.

Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you'll return to the Crystal Coast and vacation with Emerald Isle Realty again.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Changing Tides East. It pleases me to know that you found your accommodations at this duplex to be attractive. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed that a vacuum wasn't found, the iron didn't work properly, and the silverware seemed worn. Should this happen to you again, please let us know as our housekeeping department does have loaner items which you can use during your stay.

As for the sand driven in by the rain, this is a fact of life for our area. Had you let us know, we would gladly have sent someone to the property to inspect and see if the remedy which you described above is something which would be permitted. There are a lot of restrictions surrounding work being completed around the dunes but we're always happy to check it out and make suggestions to our owners so their guests have a most enjoyable stay.

Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will revisit the Crystal Coast and choose Emerald Isle Realty to serve as your host. Please call us if we can assist in planning your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

Thank you for your review. Changing Tides East does have a Bronze rating. A Bronze rated property provides comfortable and welcoming accommodations and will be well equipped to afford a nice vacation. All furnishings are in good condition. Kitchens and baths may be dated but are well maintained with standard quality inventory.

If you were dissatisfied because of the lack of updates, I would recommend reserving a property with a Silver or Gold rating for your next stay. Please call us and we'll be happy to key in on these properties while checking availability.
