Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Overall nice stay
I addressed my concerns about the dirtiness of the unit with the property manager upon check in. We were refunded the cleaning fee. This is a nice rental with easy access to the public beach walkway. We would stay again.

4/5 Good

Emerald Isle Short Stay
Overall our to visit to Emerald Ilse was great - very short only 2 nights. Great time with family of 5 adults. The cottage is small but cute. The pullout couch is not comfortable at all. I did not like having to do the dishes. We would not have been able to stay here for more than the 2 days. The rest of the building is creepy - condemned! I thought it was over priced for the size. The bathroom could use some work. There was one very large cockroach. The beach was great and very close.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect for tee.

4/5 Good

Beach stay
Pros: host was very responsive Location was great- two minute walk to beach and not on main road All basic necessities were available and working- dishes, tv, internet, etc.. Cons: -Washer didn’t work, which we didn’t realize until the morning we left so we were unable to address it with the host. -Pull out mattress is too thin for an adult. -the remaining units are all in need of renovation which gives the outdoor appearance of a rundown place

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Location is great! Cottage feels worn down, construction & repairs in the property ruins the vacation property feeling. Feels abandoned.
