“Why stay anywhere else in Emerald Isle?”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Great condo for the family. Pool and beach are within walking distance. Emerald Isle is a wonderful place to vacation with the family!

“Nice stay with some quirks”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I will agree with the other reviews that this condo is indeed clean and tidy. We appreciate that the owner is reinvesting in the rental every year. And Emerald Isle Realty made sure that all of our concerns were addressed. That being said, there were some quirks that I would like to share:

1. This condo is located on the 3rd floor. That means you get the nicest view of the ocean, but you also have to walk three flights of steps constantly (no elevators, nor would you want them).
2. There is no outside storage of significance. If you take your bicycle, be prepared to park them in the parking lot on the bike racks - exposed to the salt and weather. There is some limited space for beach gear.
3. The window treatments in the bedrooms did not filter light (although of all places the living room curtains were light blocking). So at night, with a light on in the rooms, you could clearly see in from the outside. What's more, at sunrise, the room filled with light - which is great, unless you are sensitive to bright light when trying to sleep.
4. The living room ceiling fan's light switch was rusted fast. So, if you wanted the air from the ceiling fan, you had to endure the light as well. Basically, the light is always on because you need the ceiling fan to run to help with cooling.
5. The stove is clean, but the old style heat coils made cooking less than ideal.
6. The pots and pans have seen better days but were serviceable.
7. We were there during an exterior remodel. The condos are over 30 years old, so I'm certain they needed work. And the new color on the exterior makes you feel like you are at the beach! And certainly the new sliding glass door was awesome. However, the pounding of nails all day drove us crazy. And we had to squeeze up half the steps as the painters tried to paint the steps while we used the building. There were many inconveniences, but we made the best of it.
8. The carpet, although only 4 years old, needs cleaned.
9. The shower diverter was stuck, so the shower was always on when you turned the water on (rather than first flowing through the spigot). We called maintenance and they fixed it, but it still didn't work very well.
10. The walls are paper thin, so if you have a loud neighbor, you will hear their entire dinner conversation and more!
11. Security is present and often check vehicles for the proper parking permits. We did have a party in a neighboring condo that went on until 1:30 am on the outside deck. I was disappointed that security didn't put a stop to it sooner, since quiet time is between 11pm and 7am.
12. The outside charcoal grills are used frequently, so plan accordingly.

We loved the proximity to the beach and pool; both the pool and ocean were warm and enjoyable. Overall, we had a great time. I share my thoughts and opinions above because I think it is important to travels who only see 5 star reviews without more detailed feedback. Emerald Isle is a great family vacation destination and we will be back (but probably not to this condo).

“Condo with great views!!!”

We had a great time! My husband and I stayed for a week with our 2 children and none of us were ready to leave after only 7 nights at Pebble Beach!
Great views! The views are actually better in person than they appear online! We've stayed at Pebble Beach 3 times, each time in a different condo. The walk from this condo was shorter to the pool near ocean and to ocean than an ocean front condo we stayed in in building D. We love there being 2 kiddie pools and an indoor pool. The only negative we can think of are the 3 flights of stairs you have to climb to get to the condo. But the views outweigh the climb! We would definitely recommend this condo to others!
