My family and I stayed at this location last week. The location is awesome, views of the ocean are spectacular! The house however is in desperate need of some fixing. Windows and sagging, paint is marred, bathroom showers leak. It would be beautiful again with a little care put into it. The upstairs pull out bed (in the loft), is not sleep able. The springs are falling off, and the mattress ( a 1 inch think pad) falls through the frame. Wi-Fi was there but couldn't access anything while using it. Ended up requesting an air bed to accommodate my guests. Emerald Isle Realty is awesome though....Kim Ervin will take care of your every need if your lucky enough to work with her.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Borrowed Time. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoyed your vacation this year, but I am sorry to hear about the issue you experienced with the pool. I have alerted our maintenance department so they can touch base with the pool technician about this matter. I hope you'll revisit Emerald Isle and Borrowed Time. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

Thank you for your review. I'm happy you enjoyed his home and its location. I am sorry that you experienced some maintenance issues. Please let us know of these things while you are staying with us so we can resolve them during your stay. We gladly would have sent someone to spray for bugs and clean the pool more efficiently.

Thank you again for your review. I hope you'll choose Emerald Isle Realty when planning your next vacation.
