We will be back!

This place was very nice. Over looked the water and was very beautiful. If I had to pick a negative all I would say is it is not a condo for a bunch of children. Nice dictations and glass tables. Def recommend this unit!

The condo is in a great location with superior beach views. That said, the condo has not been updated recently and shows lots of wear and tear, i.e. rust, musty smell, etc.
The furnishings are fine and I would stay here again, just know what to expect.
Manager response:
Hi Patsy, we apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We hope to host you again soon.

I absolutely loved this home! Plan on staying here again! Very quiet and peaceful and the staff was very helpful whenever we had a question. Very easy access to the beach and very trustworthy place. Very comfortable and slept great!

Our deck was the best, best ever. 5th floor is not to high and not to low. The unit was spacious and had comfortable sofa and recliners. Also, there were TVs in each room. There was a nice round table to play cards on and nice chairs and table out on the deck. The property was kept neat and clean with mostly good parking inside. The pool area was clean and neat and comfortable. The elevators were plenty and fast.

it was a very nice room. The beach access was great! We enjoyed our stay! Parking was a little confusing. But otherwise great!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Tyler. We are so glad that you had a nice stay and enjoyed the beach. We apologize for any confusion with parking. Detailed instructions are sent out with the check-in email and if guests have any questions we are available 24/7 to assist! We hope that you will be able to stay with us again!

We've stayed on several different floors and the 5th floor was not the best choice. You can hear everything that is going on below you outside.
Manager response:
Hi Terri, we are so happy that you stayed with us and appreciate your feedback. We do apologize for the noise, although it is outside of our control. Our guests’ comfort is very important to us. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay in #506. When I walked in it was very welcoming with the decor and colors. It was very refreshing and clean. Light and airy. The recliners, couch and beds are very comfortable!! The kitchen had all utensils, dishes, pots and pans needed for cooking. Washer/dryer worked well. The A/C keep the place nice and comfortable. Plenty of towels and extra sheet set for the pull out couch. There were 2 pictures of I assume family members that were precious and made it feel more like a home. But the absolute best is the view!! It was unbelievably perfect!! I stood at the kitchen making breakfast and could see the waves crashing. I woke up every morning to the beautiful clear water and white sand. I was a little skeptical with Covid but Emerald Isle was extremely sanitary and the lobby and elevators always smelled like it was just cleaned. Face mask are a must while on the resort and hand sanitizer is in every lobby. There are plenty of luggage carriers also. The parking threw me for a loop at first because you can’t just pull through so you have to be careful turning around to exit. I found it was best to go drop off our luggage on what appears to be the second level but it’s actually the 3rd when pushing the elevator button. It’s the level with the skywalk. (I think that’s what it’s called 🤷🏻‍♀️) then I drove my vehicle across to the other side and parked on the upper deck and walked over. Very simple after all. If you are considering staying here I would definitely book the place. Very easy getting in and checking out. I have found my home away from home and I truly thank the owners for opening up thier home so that others would enjoy it also💕

Loved the condo, especially the recliners in the living room. Very comfortable! Beautiful view off the balcony.
Nancy B. Jul 2020
This unit was amazing. 5th floor with amazing views. Large unit with plenty of room for everyone. Large spacious bathrooms were a plus.
Misty M. Jul 2020
Condo had everything we needed. Very spacious, didn’t feel cramped. King size bed was great, so great that I am currently looking for the same mattress to purchase. My only complaint was that the lock on the sliding glass door Was broken and there wasn’t an inside lock on the entry door. But would definitely recommend!
Sandra B. Jun 2020
The room was perfect. Very clean, comfy beds, beautiful view. Everything we needed within walking distance. Great restaurant across the street. Very nice pools. Easy access to the beaches. View from the balcony was amazing!!

My vacation rental was the same as advertised. It was clean, had all amenities that was needed throughout our stay, was located near plenty of restaurants, shopping and things that you could do. My vacation rental is good for family, couples or girls/boys trip. I definitely recommend.

The check in experience was very difficult. The lady at check-in was very rude to my husband and I. She stated that I was sent 6 emails, and I stated that I only received one. She kept asking me what unit I was in and I said that I only received my confirmation email and nothing else. She tried to make a big deal about it and was very rude confining my address. Then she printed out the rules and regulations and was very disrespectful asking if wanted a copy since I didnt receive their emails they sent me. The start of my 5 night stay was off to a horrible start. Besides the check in lady, my stay was fabulous! The condo was very clean and organized. It was right on the water and I loved the view! There were 2 men at check in that was really nice to us and I appreciated that. He told us about the great restaurants around PCB and tips on how to save money in the area! Security were friendly and helpful getting us our room. I will definitely stay again at Emerald Isle, but I pray that the Hispanic lady at check in gets her nasty attitude in check.

This condo has the best balcony and beach view ever. The balcony is the largest on the beach and offers such an incredible view. The unit is very spacious and just as pretty in person as it is in the photos. We will definitely rent 506 again! The Emerald Isle complex has a fantastic staff. Everyone was e trembly friendly and helpful. Only negatives were getting to the pool and beach through the parking garage was odd and there was a huge and deep puddle in the garage right where you would walk to get to the pool or beach. The unit was clean but needs a deep cleaning as there was dust built up quite noticeably on all the air vents and ceiling fans. But overall it was fabulous and we will be back again and again Also the location of the unit to everything is excellent!!! Pier Park and restaurants are so close. Perfect location too!

Condo was comfortable and gave us room to spread out. Loved the additional bathroom. Building/area was quiet, close to restaurants and grocery. Great Gulf view from living room and bedroom.

There was a cleaning issue but we were assured that it would be resolved. We are looking forward to renting this property again in the future.
