“Would definitely Stay Again”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The place was great for the price. The pool, hot tub, and ocean view was definitely a bonus, we usually stay on the first row but this property was priced just right that it enabled us to be oceanfront. I loved being able to see the kids (teenagers) when they walked down to the beach.
The house was clean enough but really could use a deep cleaning, we pulled the couch over to allow more walking room when coming up the steps and there was a lot of dust and and hair under it. I also noticed that there was dirt on some of the white woodwork around the doors.We have always stayed with Blue water vacation rentals and they have always been immaculate. The sheets for the beds and bath towels were rather worn but not a big issue. As most people have already stated the steps were kind of steep but I did not have an issue with them either.
The house was equipped with everything needed such as a coffee pot, blenders, microwave, toaster, toaster oven. There was plenty of utensils, pots and pans, dishes. I did not like that the dishwasher was across the kitchen instead of being close to the sink (probably put in with renovations)
The house was cozy and decorated nicely. I was impressed that things seemed to be updated from past complaints such as the living room furniture. Only two of the bedrooms were oceanfront with sliding glass doors to the deck. This worked out great for us but the description states that all the bedrooms have ocean views. They need to update the living room photos.
Before arriving I wanted to know how the house was laid out but was unable to find any information on that so for those of you that are as curious as me here you go. 1st level is the garage. 2nd level has three bedrooms and two baths. The twin bedroom has deck access, The bedroom with the queen bed and single bed has a bathroom and the double bed room has deck access. There is also another bathroom on this floor and a laundry room. The 3rd floor has the living room, dinning room, Kitchen with an open floor plan along with the bedroom that has a queen sized bed the bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom and off the kitchen.
This was a great house with plenty of room for all. The minor things mentioned were totally outweighed by all the positives. Thanks to Emerald Isle Realty for a great week

I'm so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your vacation on the Oceanfront of Emerald Isle. I'm further pleased to hear that you took notice to the improvements the owner has made at the request of guests of this home.

I am sorry that the duplex wasn't as clean as you would have liked when you arrived. Our housekeeping department does strive for excellence so please let us know of such disappointments and we will happily send another cleaning crew to clean more efficiently. Also, we have in house descriptions for most of our properties and our vacation planners visit them often to become familiar with the layout so any time you are curious or have questions about a home we manage, give us a call at 1-888-832-0140. If we don't have the answer to your question, we'll get it.

Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will choose to again vacation with Emerald Isle Realty.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Marine Manor West. This is a wonderful duplex and has many great features for a family to enjoy.

I am sorry that were disappointed that the pool couldn't be heated. This amenity isn't offered to guests of staying on either side of the duplex, but there is a private hot tub on each side for guests' enjoyment.

Thank you again for sharing your experience. Please call us to plan your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.
