“Great location, and the house was attractive and clean.”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Loved the location right on the beach. The deck was absolutely perfect for evening star gazing. The house was clean and pretty. Not real crazy about the layout, though. The living room and kitchen were upstairs, so there was no way to avoid elderly parents from having to deal with the stairs multiple times a day. Other than that, it was great!

“Great Stay”
Reviewed July 11, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at Dunescrest East over the 4th of July 2012. We really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and there was enough room for everyone to spread out (two families with 4 adults and 5 children). Our first full day the owner even called to check in which was a very nice touch. My wife was concerned with bugs and I am happy to say we did not see any! The beach was so close and was perfect. The two level deck was great and had plenty of seating including a nice outdoor couch in the shade. Reading some past reviews...if you are expecting perfection this may not be the place for you. There are little things...the beds facing the ocean could be bigger, when someone walks upstairs you can hear it below, some of the dishes and silverware have hard water stains, etc.. but overall we felt it was a great place and would stay again.

Be advised that they have to throw away all paper products when they clean it...meaning no toilet paper, napkins, etc.when you walk in. We would have liked to know that going in. Emerald Isle Realty check in was very simple...they checked up on us to make sure we were happy as well.
