Pebble Beach Condominiums
Reviewed 1 July 2016

We stayed in F-106, and enjoyed the condo.
Information: We booked through BlueWater and were able to pick up our keys after hours (we arrived on Emerald Isle after 8:00 pm).
There was ample parking as the complex was not full. Just a short walk to the beach from our building (about 500 steps). Be sure to keep your parking pass in plain sight on your dash, I forgot to put the pass on my dash one evening and was issued a warning for not having a parking pass visible.
Be sure to pack trash bags, dishwasher soap/tabs, tp, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc., as these were not provided in our unit.

Condo: The unit was clean and comfortable. Since we had a first floor unit, there was a screened in patio, which was great around lunch time when we headed back from the beach to have lunch. The standard stock of appliances were available, blender, coffee pot, toaster oven, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, fridge (with ice maker), stove/oven. There was a queen size bed in the bedroom, and plenty of blankets in the closet.

Beach: The beach was just a short walk from the unit (about 500 steps), and there was a wooden walkover from the complex to the beach. There is a guarded beach about 500 steps away to the east. Some people left their pop up gazebos on the beach all day, and they seemed to remain unperturbed all day.

Things to do: The beach was a great place to spend the hours. We did take a day trip to Harker's Island and visit Cape Lookout. It’s about an hour’s drive from the condo complex to the ferry dock, then a fifteen minute ferry ride to the island. There are bathrooms at the ferry dock on Harker’s Island, and on Cape Lookout. The beach was a short walk (about 1,000 steps) on Cape Lookout, and the beach was great. You do have to carry everything you bring, we took a multi-compartment beach bag, but people did have rolling coolers and beach chairs.

Places to eat: We ate out three times on our trip. We went out to dinner at Rucker Johns (Emerald Isle) and Clawson’s 1905 Restaurant (Beaufort). Rucker Johns was great, there was a wait forming when we got there at 5:45, and when we left around 7:00, the wait was over an hour for a party of four (on a Tuesday night). Clawson’s 1905 Restaurant in Beaufort was also great, we stopped there on our way home from Cape Lookout (it’s about halfway between Harker’s Island and Emerald Isle). There were a lot of seafood options and there was a minimal wait (less than 5 minutes) around 6:30 pm for a party of 2. We went out to breakfast at Yana Mama’s in Swansboro, which is only about ten minutes from Pebble Beach. The restaurant was small, and larger parties had to wait for the one table that seats more than four, however, for a party of two, we were in and out in about 30 minutes. Food was great, typical breakfast fare, but the peach fritters are a must try!
We enjoyed our trip to Emerald Isle, we are frequent OBX visitors (Southern Shores, and Hatteras), and enjoyed our stay here just as much as those beaches. Pebble Beach was clean, safe, and close to shopping and restaurants.

Upon arrival the condo smelled like wet dog, the tvs did not work, the cable did not work and yes every tv had a cable box. The outlets in tbe master br did not work so i couldnt do my hair. (I had 4 kids using the other bathroom and not all the time in tbe world), the toilet would not flush. Also we paid $1500 for a condo that doesn come with towels, toilet paper or sheets. WAYYYYYYYY OVER PRICED! NO THANKS

Our stay was in unit D208. This was one of the best condos I've ever rented for vaca. It's well furnished with high end, comfy furnishings and accessories. There was an abundance of blankets and pillows so we were never short on those. It was clean and fresh and had everything we could've wanted or needed. Nice flat screen TV, internet worked well. I fell in love with the Cuisinart coffee maker! There's a beautiful pool and gazebo area and open grass/bbq grill if that's your thing. A very short walk to the beach through a nice path, less than 5 minutes. The deck is really nice with great views of the beach and ocean. The few cons and this is only for those with mobility problems is the unit is on the 2nd floor so you have 3 sets of about 10 stairs to go up. This was a little challenging for my 83 yo Mom. The person upstairs, not sure if it's a full time owner or what was a little on the noisy side late into the night stomping around and at times had a little "potty" mouth. I would definitely go back to this great condo.

I stayed in Emerald Isle at Pebble Beach condo Unit I 202. This condo was very clean, uncluttered, very well appointed with every you need. The King Size Tempur- pedic bed was an unexpected luxury in a rental unit. The indoor pool 'which can be seen from this condo" was warm and inviting. The beach walks were long, uncrowded with beautiful sunrise and sunsets. I was able to get awesome photographs. I will go back to his condo again.

We are frequent beach vacationers but had never visited Emerald Isle. We choose the I building at Pebble Beach. The facility was wonderful with three pools and a beautiful courtyard with manicured grounds. The direct beach access made our beach sunrise and sunset strolls fantastic. Our unit was clean and well appointed. Shopping and a movie theater were close enough to ride our bikes to. Thank you to the Pebble Beach community.

Room Tip: The courtyard view from the I building offered a wonderful pool and garden view with a direct beach...
