"A Castle bin the sand"

5 of 5

the best house so far!! We love staying down Coast Guard rd close to everything not that you need to go anywhere!! Very clean house really nice comfortable beds every bedroom has a bathroom and the elevator is really nice the main living area is on the top floor!! The pool is really nice it was also nice to have a hot tube!! We love to play cards the game room downstairs was really nice to have with the big round table with enough seats for eight people to play we could leave the game there and continue playing the next night there is also a full refrigerator in the game room nice for there and easy to get to from the pool!! The only down side the kitchen could use more extra big bowls, better knifes, just extras to the great dishes! We loved this house I would diffently recommend it great for big families!! Also thank you to Emerald Realty always Awsome!!!

"Excellent"

5 of 5

Great time by all. Emerald Isle is just wonderful. Love the house just right size for all of us. The weather was not good for two days but did get plenty of sun and the beach. Beds were really comfortable for all. Pool good size -had to call for service on the fridgerator one evening-out at house the next morning-fast service.Plus bad storm at night knocked grill over called them and again they were there fast. Loved the house so much we are renting again next year at the same time.

"Needs some TLC"

3 of 5

This is our group's 4th year in Castle in the Sand (the house was new our first year). It's a beautiful house, but is starting to show some wear and tear. Even though 2 cleaning crews came the day we arrived, the house did not appear clean (old mildew in showers, outside of house needed power-washing badly, dust build-up everywhere and linens were dingy). We also had several maintenance problems - ice maker was broken the entire time, 1/2 the stove burners didn't work, broken door knob on top deck door (this has been a problem every year) and neither the pool or the hot tab was cleaned during the entire week of our stay. We also had issues with bugs - would love to see the owners consider putting screens on the bedroom windows of the 2nd floor bedrooms. Unfortunately, EI Realty was not at all responsive to our requests for assistance during our stay. I have since shared all our comments with them since our return. We already have reservations to stay in this house again next year and we're really hoping we find things in better condition. It's a great house, with a beautiful layout and location that works great for our group - we'd hate to lose it as an option. Please give this house a DEEP CLEANING, consider new bedding (or at least carefully launder the current linens) and consider a new ice maker (this is the 2nd year that we've gone the entire week without one). It's a great house - just needs to be better maintained.

Manager Response:

Thank you for providing us with feedback after your stay at A Castle in the Sand. This is a beautiful, Oceanfront sandcastle with plenty of space for a large family group to gather and enjoy the beauty of Emerald Isle.

I am sorry your family was inconvenienced during your stay by some maintenance issues and uncleanliness, and I have followed up with our maintenance and housekeeping departments, as well as the owner of this home to ensure all noted items have been addressed. A Castle In The Sand did receive a deep clean prior to the summer season beginning, but I let housekeeping know of the specific items you mentioned that could be more tidy. It doesnt seem that we received notification of anything but the faulty door knob during your stay. Please let us know of things like the stove and icemaker not working properly while you are here and we will be happy to work to remedy those items for you.

Thank you again for your review. We look forward to having you as our guest again in 2015!
