This is the first time we stayed on the Emerald isle and Grande Villa G8. Intially we were quite impressed with the condo. However the first night there was a large bug that looked like a roach in the master bedroom that fell from the ceiling and onto the bedroom floor. I finally found it and killed it so my wife could sleep. This was one of many large bugs that were in the condominiums as well as the balcony. Exterminator needed. The sink was clogged and wouldn't drain. Called Maintenance but ended up plunging it myself. No water pressure or hot water in any shower or sink.Water wall in foyer leaked all over floor. Pull out sofa bed in loft was unusable, all the springs were missing. And my daughter and Husband had to sleep on the floor the entire week.We stayed for hurricane Arthur and luckily for the Condo owner we did. The so called hurricane proof windows leaked all over the place and would surely caused damage to the dining room and family room if we hadn't been there to capture all of the water. The Front door blew open on its own even though it was dead bolted. Three of us had to sit in chairs to hold the door closed so the wind and rain wouldn't get into the condo.Pool was very dirty on several occasions like the filter wasn't working.I was lucky to have my adult children with me to work the television, three remotes to operate one tv and 1 of the remotes needed batteries. Carpets were filthy with stains all over. Please don't get the impression that this condo isn't worth the money, it is. However I think the owners are being taken advantage of by the cleaning and maintenance contractors. I gave the real estate company a list of the problems but I never got a call or email to discuss. Hopefully the owners read this and see for themselves that there condo isn't being maintained the way it should be. Beautiful location and the groundskeepers did a phenominal job prior to and after the hurricane.
A small town family
A clean roomy place to stay with an awesome view.
Our family stayed at the Grande Villas, unit 8-G from July 14-21st, 2013. First the good! We have ways gone to Corolla in the Outer Banks. This year we wanted something less touristy. Well, Emerald Isle is great, not crowded, great restaurants...our favorite is the Crab Shack!!!, water sports are great, no traffic at all. A nice aquarium, movie theaters. Town of Beaufort is 20 min away and is as charming as they come! Just a lovely place Emerald Isle is!! Upon entering 8-G, we were taken back by the wonderful views of the ocean and the beautifully decorated condo. It truly is a great place to rent for the week. The owner has provided everything you need for a great vacation...the kitchen is stocked with everything...I mean everything you could possibly need! Good knives, cookware, cutting boards, bakeware, Pier one dishes!!! coffee maker and grinder! garbage bags, dish soap, hand soap, great dishes, ice cream maker, martini and wine glasses, a bar set up with everything needed to make a great beach cocktail. The deck was massive and the views are just amazing! The loft has pool table, dice game, pinball machine, chess, checkers, Wii, play station...great for kids. The unit is amazing!!! Now the not so good...- Upon arriving at the "resort", the front desk person barely looked up from her magazine to greet us. There was only 1 luggage cart available for use for the entire building. The waterfall in the entrance of the unit wasn't working. The cleaning staff told us someone would be up to fix it...never happened. The bed in the master (larger one) has a "mock" sleep number bed...doesn't work. Bed was flat the entire week, despite calling the front desk and rental company. The comforter set (decorative pillows and coverlet) in the master and the bedroom with bunk beds was stained and obviously not cleaned between rentals. They advertise that chairs/umbrellas are set up...yes this is true if you can find the one employee that does this. He also does handy man work in building. Yes, he does put out a few chairs in the morning but those get taken up immediately. We had to drag loungers and find the few umbrellas that actually worked and set them up ourselves. Oh, the handyman leaves at 6:00 pm so if you are still at beach using chairs/umbrellas, he'll be sure to tell you that 6:00 is cutoff time and they must be returned. "Grill" at pool is really pre-made food that is heated up. Yes there are nice tv's in unit, but perhaps a "how to" manual to figure out how to turn them on??? Back to my comment about Grande Villas being advertised as a "resort"...we realized by day two of our week that the staff was aloof towards us because the place is not a resort. If it were a resort, they would go out if their way to cater to all the needs of the resort guests. This is in fact a condo building that is run daily by a management team that the HOa hires to run the building. Their job is not to cater to weekly renters but to manage the day to day responsibilities of the building.
I would not recommend staying in unit 8-G. There were several issues that added up over the course of the week. The unit was dirty. We would have reported it but didn't want to be inconvenienced with a cleaning service interrupting our stay and some of the dirtiness wasn't apparent at first look. The bath rugs in all bathrooms were filthy and I had to wash them. The carpets throughout had stains and had clearly not been vacuumed in some time. The laundry room floor was full of sand that I had to sweep up. The running water in all sinks/tubs/showers was yellow (a urine color) which we did report but we were told it was safe to drink (we didn't drink it) and that the unit hadn't been rented in a while (not our problem). It was gross having my 20 month old bathe in urine colored water. We killed a cockroach. Now the good news ... The Grande Villas Property itself is a wonderful place for families to stay! We had clean sheets and clean bath and pool towels. My boys loved the water fountain in 8-G's foyer. The "mud hallway" provided a great place to store our beach and pool toys. We had gorgeous views from the balcony and enjoyed sitting on the balcony while our boys took naps. We loved the kiddie, big pool and infinity pool. It was nice to be at the pool and still see and hear the ocean steps away. We didn't use the snack bar but the food looked good from others that did use it. The resort itself is beautiful and clean. It was nice having complimentary beach chair set up so we didn't have to drag chairs down to the beach. It wasn't crowded during our stay. We never had to wait for an elevator and the luggage carts made for easy loading/unloading from car to condo. We do hope to come back to Grande Villas but will choose a different unit and I will inspect for cleanliness before unpacking and will have a cleaning crew come back to clean if needed.
Give us a call!
