    Furniture smelled and was broken, cooking dishes were not clean. Only had 2 towels and 2 wash clothes for two people for a week . Shower was very small. Oven door wouldn't stay closed while cooking. We left 3 days early and returned home from a week long vacation.

    Manager's Response:

    Homeowner’s response: Hi James, the furniture is routinely cleaned, in good condition, with a pleasant scent. All dishes are cleaned and inspected between guests' stays. We provide ample towels in the bathroom closet, in addition to sets on the racks.
    - 1 Ocean Fun photographs accurately reflect the interior and its proximity to beach access, just 30 yards away.
    - Prior to your stay, new wood flooring was installed, along with fresh kitchen/bathroom linoleum.
    - The oven was serviced with new hardware prior to your arrival, and the oven door closes fine.
    - The shower dimensions are ample for one person, and meet all building codes.
    - Additionally, we provide a beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie, and skim boards, snorkel & mask, swim goggles, and sand castle play set for the children. We look forward to accommodating future vacationers at our stunning Emerald Isle Beach.

  • Overall Good Stay


    Overall the property was good with a great location. However, when we got there at 4 to check in, it was still being cleaned so we had to wait a few minutes. It was no big deal but we were told check in was at 4.

  • Worst property evet!#


    Pictures are misleading. Property is poorly maintained. Has had multiple water leaks in the bathroom and bedroom. Window blinds were broken, several electric baseboard heating units were coming off the wall. We left a day early after the previous night at 10:30 pm water began leaking over the bed!! Maintenance came and opened up the ceiling to find a pipe that had a garbage bag taped around as a fix. It was wrapped with a pan in the ceiling tile to catch water leaking!!!! The bathroom had serious leak issues because the linen closet door is coming apart. Avoid this property. We were not offered a refund just a opportunity to move to another unit or get a free night in the off season. After the two days we spent with this host's property, we have no desire to stay with them again.

    Hi Ruth, we want to make vacation rental easy for everyone, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your stay. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We want to assure you that Ocean Fun is accurately depicted in the photographs. It's located just 70 yards away from the sandy beach, allowing you to enjoy a view of the ocean and the soothing sound of the waves. We provide a wagon, chairs, and an umbrella for our guests' convenience.
    - We understand that the rainy weather during your stay may have been disappointing. Unfortunately, spring weather can be unpredictable, and we have no control over it.
    - There was a tiny leak that wetted a ceiling tile, and we acted promptly upon being notified and were able to stop the leak within 20 minutes. The issue was permanently fixed, and we apologize for any inconvenience it caused.
    Thank you once again for taking the time to share your feedback. Your insights are valuable to us as we continuously improve our guests' experience.

  • Pleasant


    I enjoyed my stay, the place is older but I knew that based on the listing so it was fine with me. The location is great and it is a quiet neighborhood. The price was reasonable and the apartment was clean. Nothing fancy but it was functional and very close to the beach.
