“Great Stay”
Reviewed 12 July 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.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Dunescrest East. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your vacation at this duplex so much. As you mentioned, the location is great as you have a wide beach with little to no crowd. This duplex is on the Western most side of Bogue Banks, very convenient to Swansboro and shopping right in Emerald Isle.

Thank you again for your feedback. I hope you will return to the Crystal Coast and allow Emerald Isle Realty the opportunity to host you and your family again. Please call us when you begin planning your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.
