“Always a wonderful time in Emerald Isle, NC”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We are regular visitors to Emerald Isle and use Emerald Isle Realty for most of our rental properties. Wind Drift was a cheerful, well stocked and very comfortable home steps away from the ocean. With two young children and various aged adults, oceanfront was perfect. Everything in the home worked well and was clean. I was impressed that the cleaning crew chief returned to the home after we checked in to supply closet hangers. She had noticed that there were very few in most closets. That is attention to detail.
We loved the home and if available next trip, we would book again.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Wind Drift West. I do apologize for the inconvenience to your family which was posed by our request to move you to another vacation home. Unfortunately, your originally booked property was left in disrepair from the previous renters and took some time to bring back up to our standards.

Wind Drift West is very comparable to the property which you originally booked, in size and quality. It is a gold rated duplex with a fresh feel, up to date furnishings, and panoramic views of our beautiful beaches. I spoke with the booking member of your party on several occasions and tried to be as accommodating to your group as possible. I'm sorry if my efforts fell short.

I hope you'll change your mind and visit us again in Emerald Isle. If you do, please call us to discuss your vacation plans - 1-888-832-0140.
