“Great Family Get-Away”
Reviewed 8 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We travel to Emerald Isle every other year with family. There are a total of 10 adults and 10 kids, and this house was the perfect spot. We've never stayed as far north as Indian Beach but it was a great location. Both sides of the house had water views, Oceanfront and then the "Roadside" was also Sound Side, so that was a nice perk. The kitchen was nicely stocked with all the amenities, and the game room was a perk for the kids. The location on the beach was great, not overly busy, and a short drive to the store, Willis Seafood Market, and putt putt. My only complaints would be, that the bedroom with the Queen does not have a bathroom attached. That same room did not really have an operable sliding glass door to the patio, however maintenance was quick to come over to work on it (but wasn't fixed by the end of the week). This is a minor detail, however frustrating, the televisions in the bedrooms were so difficult to operate. Remotes didn't work, dvd players were not hooked up, AV cables were missing, batteries were dead...I didn't really care, but when I wanted my kids to go to their rooms and watch a movie before bedtime it was a nightmare. Overall, great house! We would definitely go back again!

“Wonderful Week for Our Entire Family!!”
Reviewed 22 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a wonderful week at Sail Away despite the weather being rainy throughout the week. We had our five adult children (three with spouses), and 5 young grandchildren with us, and we all had plenty of room! There were places to gather all together to watch movies, play board games, and eat our meals all together, but also room to get away by yourself for some quiet time reading a book or taking a nap. The access to the beach was fantastic, and going before the summer rush (we went the week before Memorial Day weekend), we pretty much had the beach all to ourselves! It would have been nice to have the option to heat the pool before we came, but we were very happy with the hot tub after our chilly dips in the pool and ocean.

All the bedrooms were very nice and roomy, and the kitchen was very well stocked with all that we needed. The elevator was very helpful in unloading our luggage and food. We enjoyed the theater room as we caught up on our Marvel movies! :) The game room was nice, but we really enjoyed the large living space up on the top floor where we mostly hung out playing board games and sharing meals while inside. Everything was very clean, too!

We had some problems with the AC upon arrival with some leaking in the master bath on the top floor. Emerald Isle Realty had it fixed by Tuesday, and it didn't cause much of a problem for us. I imagine if it had happened in August instead of May we might have been pretty uncomfortable for a couple days, but luckily for us, the weather wasn't too hot!

All in all, it was a wonderful vacation with many happy memories made. We are hoping to come back, and if we can get Sail Away again, we will be very happy!!

“Great family time”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

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.

Management Response
14 Oct 2016
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!
