This condo has great views but beyond that it needs a total overhaul! The unit is old and looks like it probably did 25 years ago. The closet doors were falling off. The dishwasher was so old that it had tape on it to hold it together. There was urine all around the toilet near the floor. We had to...

We just returned from Emerald Isle, a great place to vacation.....but this unit is terrible, absolutely no pride of ownership displayed. To begin with we found wet dirty towels in the downstairs bathtub, only 2 burners on the stove worked, which made cooking for a family difficult. None of the outlets in the bathrooms worked, I expect because they are...

Excellent views!!! This is an end unit and faces the ocean. It had everything. It was clean and modern. It had a fully stocked kitchen. Flat screen TV's in every room and really comfortable beds. The pools are in a perfect proximity to this unit too although they were not open during our stay.. We walked into town for the...

SOS 206W is an end unit that sits closest to the ocean so the view is excellent. However this was an older unit and not been updated. Most of the closet doors were off the tracks (bifold doors) or broken to where they couldn't stay on the tracks. It rained a lot during our vacation and the windows that opened...

This high rise condo was built in 1984, and the public access points have been well maintained. The complex is accesses thru a gate with proxy card control. The units themselves probably vary with the furnishings and cleanliness. We always a new site thru Emerald Isle Realty. This provides some assurances about the condition of your unit, before your arrival....

This is the best located property in the complex, and the reason we booked it. We have stayed at Sound of the Sea for years. However, this unit is poorly maintained. The HVAC vents all have mold growing on them and it has spread to the drywall. The sliding glass door to the deck was 99% broken and wasn't functional...

When we checked into unit 121 East townhouse we found the townhouse was very dirty.  The towels and sheets were thrown into a bag on the floor.  Not one sliver of toilet paper to be seen. The comforters are all disgusting and the dishes in the cabinets were all filthy.  We decided to clean the floors because all of our...

We stayed in Sound of the Sea 211 West on the week of June 14-21, 2015. This was our first visit with this Condo, and will probably be our last. We usually go to Atlantic Beach, but couldn't find an opening for this week where we usually stay. This condo was filthy! I think that since no one had rented...

Excellent condos to stay if you able to climb the stairs. Not appropriate for elders. Great location . BEST BEACH IN NC. Clean, well kept, adorable. We loved it. Very close to the grocery store, great restaurants (try Riverside steaks and seafood), gagged community with security. Overall great experience, We will definitely be back!
