very cozy place, Danielle was extremely helpful and friendly. loved it, would highly recommend
Stayed 2 nights in Jun 2021

1/5 Terrible

Pics on the website obviously are not up to date. I’m not sure where to start on the issues w/this property. There were water stains & what appeared to be mold all over the drop ceiling tiles, the whole property was permeated with a smell of mildew, AC was provided by temp/portable units & the kitchen is basically unusable in my opinion, appliances appear to be straight out of the 50’s or so. Bathroom left a lot to be desired as well, ie very tiny shower. Property manager was the bright spot, she was very helpful & responded to text messages very quickly & resolved our TV issues in a very timely manner. Basically For the cost per night it is way overpriced, if it was right on the beach w/these issues is one thing but being a block back & in desperate need of repair & an update just does not justify the cost outlay for the room. It looks like my 1st college apartment except in worse condition. I have pics in case anyone doubts this review. I would avoid this rental if possible, we will not be staying there again.

5/5 Excellent

Very close to the beach
The house is across the street from the beach and a great walking distance to ships and restaurants. The unit was pretty clean although very dated. Decorated nicely. We never used the kitchen. They have a hose at the front of the house that’s great for washing off sand after a day at the beach.

3/5 Okay

Great location but really needs some work
Upon arrival to Emerald Isle I contacted the designated contact person for our stay. I had checked with her earlier in the week to see if we could check in early which she said she couldn't guarantee and I fully understand that in peak season. However, we didn't even get our keys from the office until almost 4:45 (check in was 4). No apologies, explination or anything. The location of this rental was great. Right across the street from a large beach access. It was your basic beach apartment rental. It was in a unit that had 4 apartments. The parking was very inconvenient as they had designated spots for each unit, which is fine, but our unit spot was on the complete opposite side of the building which made unloading more difficult. There was no central air which I had specifically asked about before booking and was assured there was. They did have two large free standing AC units inside. One in the bedroom and one in the living room. That left the kitchen and bathroom very hot! It is a pet friendly rental which we appreciated but the cloth couch smelled like wet, dirty dog. You were not able to sit on it. The bedroom was fine and comfortable. The bed was pretty good. The kitchen was a tiny OLD unit from the 1960's apartments. It worked but was difficult. The hinges on the oven door however were broken so it closed on my arm burning it pretty good. The shower was so small my husband didn't even fit and he is not huge 6'1" and 200lbs. There were bugs in every corner, Water spots and leaks in the cieling tiles. Rust and peeling paint on doors. I say all this because it wasn't a cheap booking. We paid a lot of money for three nights of which the first one we couldn't even get in until 5 and then had to be checked out promptly at 10am on our last day. I feel like I have always used VRBO to rent from individual owners who cared. This ended up being a vacation rental company with no personality or personal touches. I was very disappointed We made the best of our stay and had a good time but I willl NEVER rent from anything Evolve manages again!. I feel like VRBO should reconsider its partnership with them! RENTERS BEWARE

5/5 Excellent

Couldn't beat the location!
We really enjoyed our stay this past week - it was such a treat to just walk across the street and be on a beautiful, open beach. For those of you staying here with pets - dogs are allowed on the beach as long as they're on a leash. The rental had almost everything we needed for the week. Some things to keep in mind: - You do not need to bring charcoal/fuel for grilling. It's already there. There is also outdoor seating available behind the rental. - You might opt to bring your own drinking water or filter. - Some kitchen stuff you might want to bring - a colander, aluminum foil, dish soap/sponges, coffee filters, cooking oil, extra paper towels. - The toiletries that were provided were a few rolls of toilet paper and hand soap for the sinks. Bring anything else that you might need. There is a hairdryer there. - If the AC has been off for a while, it might feel a little moist in there. Definitely throw it on when you arrive - it'll be more comfortable in a few hours. - If you plan on going to The Point to check out the sunset - do it! It's awesome. Plan ahead for parking, though. There aren't many spots and the walk is a few miles otherwise. We had a great week and will definitely return to EI!
