"Great family time"
We had our annual family vacation here, this is a wonderful house, just needs a little TLC when we arrived there were quite abit of problems but by Thursday after about 8 phone calls they were all resolved, this house is so big you can spread out and the location is beach front with out too much walking, it has a elevator for elderly parents, the kitchen has everything you will need, i think the house is better now that we stayed there, the bed is fixed and the doors are fixed and the raccoons are gone, i would stay here again, emerald isle realty does a good job but you have to be patient and keep calling.

"Memorable family time in a great house"
We spent a week with our grown kids their little ones and had a great time... all 13 of us. The location of the house is fabulous, the kitchen is the best-stocked of any we have rented, and every bedroom has its own bathroom. The theater room and game room were fun for the kids when it was time to get out of the sun and they loved the pool which is very large for a beach house pool. Two negatives I need to bring up: There is serious mold issue on ceilings of some rooms, especially one of the bunk rooms that needs to be addressed ASAP. Also, the decking needs some attention... splintering and protruding nails. Other than that, the house is dreamy!
Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us. It pleases me to know that you and your family had a great time during your stay at Sail Away.
I appreciate you letting us know about the ceilings. This surface mildew is a caused when cool air, like that in the air conditioned house, meets the hot, humid outside air. Our housekeeping staff will be able to remove the discoloration and we appreciate you letting us know about it. You'll be very pleased to know that the owners of Sail Away have plans to replace the pool decking prior to the 2017 rental season so new decking will be awaiting you when you arrive for your next stay.
Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to greeting you when you arrive in Emerald Isle next year!

"aWedding Week in "Sail Away". PERFECT!"
My family needed a place to stay for my sons weekend wedding, so I began my search. The wedding was in Beautfort, and I wanted EVERYONE in my family who was coming to be able to stay together. This house has 8 rooms for sleeping, and 8.5 bathrooms. Because it was off season, if we all pitched in, we could afford it. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!! We ended up hosting the rehearsal dinner for 50 people at the house. We enjoyed the theatre room, the game room, the well stocked with high end appliances, pots and pans, dishes, etc..., decks, etc. Everyone had a place to be. The elevator was a blessing with all of the food that was brought in to be prepared, along with the rented tables and chairs. We all cried (seriously!) when we had to leave. The beds were comfortable. The views in the kitchen are breath taking. You just sigh when you look out the windows. This is the place to stay!!!! I would come back every year if I could!. (The kitchen had trays, decorative bowls, plenty of glasses and mugs for the 22 that stayed the weekend. The house was beautifully decorated!)

"All in the family"
My husband and I, along with our children and grandchildren, 7 adults, 5 children enjoyed a peaceful week at Sail Away. We had plenty of room so no one got in anyone's way. We loved going in the pool after a fun filled day on the beach. All right outside our door. Night time crab hunts were a big hit with the little ones, as was a trip to the Aquarium just minutes away. We returned home to New Jersey with suntans and many great memories we did encounter a few problems that need to be mentioned for the owners consideration. The elevator did not work half thetime and it was inconvien4 goubg from kutchen, 3rd floor to pool, lower level. The deck area is in needs of finshubg, my grandchildren had splinters on their feet when using the pool. Very scarse annenites, basic needs like compactor bags. Outdoor shower was not clean so we never used it. Not enough patio chairs for a house that size.
