Just "wow"!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! Great porches to sit and be lazy and watch ocean and dolphins. Beach was beautiful and our dog and teens enjoyed it. The shower on the top floor was amazing and we all ended up using it. Lots of games in the house for family time. Gourmet kitchen. Enjoyed the hot tub. Beach was quiet and easy to access.

Great Oceanfront Property with Fabulous Pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kiwi Splash recently was an excellent experience. We had stayed there about 15 years ago and were pleased to visit again. The property did not disappoint; the pool is absolutely the largest private pool of anywhere we've stayed (approximately 6 other Emerald Isle properties) and is wonderful! Any pool issues mentioned in earlier reviews has been completely remedied. The house itself is spacious and able to accommodate many adults and children (comfortably sleeps 16). The kitchen and other areas are well-stocked and very comfortable. There are 3 refrigerators which is helpful when there are multiple families present and the appliances are of a good quality. We found the beds especially comfortable for a rental property. The top floor master has an incredible walk-in double shower that was very refreshing after a hot day at the beach/pool. Outdoors is wonderful as well. The multi-level decks are fantastic for dolphin watching and are well outfitted with many chairs, tables, and chaises. The walkway to the ocean has recently been replaced and the covered sitting area is a great place to enjoy views of the beach and ocean. The location on the island is good; it is situated almost in the center of the island and is a short drive to several restaurants, shops, grocery stores and a movie theater. Emerald Isle is a beautiful place and Kiwi Splash made our visit there even more enjoyable!

Extremely disappointed! Please ask about pool!

  • 2 of 5

My family is very close and we look forward to quality time together every year, we have rented for years. Kiwi Splash was by far very disappointing to any house we’ve ever gotten. It was a little less expensive than we were used to but we figured it was because of it being an older home with a little funky layout. We looked at the online pictures and decided it would work for us. What you see, and what you get, are two different things. Upon arrival, we noticed the house was very dusty (circles of dust under the numerous nicknacks) and outside was littered with stuff from the previous people. Outside glass top table had food and other sticky stuff on it. The most noticeable thing was the pool, there was a giant tear in the liner and it was bubbled up all over. Two hoses had to be running constantly to keep the water level barely up to the skimmer. Because of the water running constantly it was green in two days, my husband added proper chemicals (the owner told us where we could find them and didn’t come by til Wednesday to check on it). They also said the hoses were necessary due to the evaporation issue (really?!) Reviews from last 2 years mention pool liner issues and owners claimed they would be replacing it, well it hasn’t been done, but online pics show a gorgeous pool. Other issues: only 1 of 2 washers worked, only 1 of 2 dishwashers worked, 2 of the 3 sinks in kitchen leaked all over floor when used, hot tub was green with panels missing exposing filters, pool safety railings and ladders practically falling out of concrete, no door on 8th bedroom, top floor bathroom shower and door knob both broken, bottom floor bedroom leaked buckets of water during the tropical storm and the bathtub water was green all week. We had to wash one comforter because there was very obvious white stains all over the underneath of the burgundy material (yes, really gross!). The final blow? My sister left a drawer full of clothes behind and asked to have them sent to her and owner, after knowing we weren’t happy with a lot of things there, said she would be happy to do it for a fee of $50 plus shipping costs! Wow! Please note when renting you pay a “non refundable damage fee”, not a security deposit. We are trying to figure out what they use that money to fix??? We are not super picky people or big complainers and we could have dealt with one or two issues, but all of this combined with the owners lack of caring attitude left us with a bad taste for the first time ever.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry if you found a few dusty items, our housekeepers work very hard to provide a clean property for you to enjoy however there isn't always time for the extra's in the turnover. We have changed our check in time to 4pm so that these things can be addressed. Pool liner has been ordered yet again, it's the 2nd time in the last 2 years. You can read the reviews from May 31, 2015 enjoying the pool and July 14, 2015 review wanting to return to "Kiwi Splash" property! By Aug, 2015 very small areas of the liner were starting to show some pulling away at the rim. We would have wanted to replace the liner immediately however having the largest pool on the rental market 20 x 40 feet, it would take about 3 days just to drain it, install the liner another day and refill it 3 more days so someone renting would be without a pool for the week so it's a must to wait until the end of the season. I hope you can understand. Our appliances are all in working order, they are top of the line and digital appliances are sometimes not "user friendly" for that we apologize however I did email someone in your party instructions on washer and they had responded "thank you" we got it to work and they never mentioned d/w which also worked just fine. There was a small drip from the triple main sink and plumber fixed it and checked all other sinks & confirmed they were all in working order. The hot tub is delivered clean with fresh water for each new guest on turnover day with courtesy check mid week if needed. It was serviced the morning of your arrival & delivered clean, we cannot service it daily as you demanded. Pool ladder base to concrete has been replaced & we will address the top floor bathroom shower door knob. The bottom French door was left open hence for water during rainstorm. I shipped a drawer full of clothes to your sister FREE of charge so I'm not sure why you are stating that I charged $50.00? Please understand that we strive to deliver everything in perfect order however with a very busy season there is bound to be wear and tear at the end of the season. We have replaced the liner just last year and yes we have to do it again this year. We are kind people and genuinely want to give you (our guests) a wonderful experience. We take pride in our rental property and if you read the many positive 5* reviews you would have to believe that is true.Your husband was belligerent apparently under the influence & we avoided confrontation.

We went on our first friends vacation in August of 2014, (the calendar wouldn't go back that far) it was 13 adults and 6 kids under the age of 8. We had an amazing time! The house was plenty of room for all of us. The pool and beach option is perfect. It was a perfect distance from the beach, where it was nice a private for our large group. Even though there were plenty of people on the beach you never felt crowded. The pool and hot tub we fantastic to go in throughout the day or night. At the time of our visit the heating in the hot tub was having issues but the owners were wonderful with trying to help get that fixed. The area where the house is located is only minutes away from stops and food. Emerald Isle is a great vacation for a family and large groups. Over all we all had a memorable time and we now making our friends vacation a yearly event. This home is perfect to large groups, and good times. We talk about it all the time, and plan to come back. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home, it was everything we needed.

Great pool, awesome views & location!

  • 4 of 5

I just had a very relaxing vacation staying at Kiwi Splash house!

The weather gods blessed us with "sunny & 88 degrees" most of the week - we couldn't ask for better.

This rental has a lot going for it, suited our family well, and we all had fun staying here.

The location is great! With just a few neighboring houses, we had plenty of beach space just steps away. The pool was even bigger in person than I expected (I'd seen pictures, but didn't grasp the scale until I was in it doing laps). The pool liner is showing some wear in places, but everything was working fine for us all week and we spent A LOT of time enjoying it - morning, noon & night. The size of the house is ample - our group of 21 all found enough space. The floor plan is "unique" in that sharing bedrooms, walking through bedrooms to get to bathrooms, sharing bathrooms with outdoor spaces, etc can be challenging, but if you're group is close-knit like ours, you'll make it work just fine. I loved the flow of kitchen, dining, living spaces on the main level - all with stunning views of the ocean. The house is well-stocked with pots, pans, etc, and we eventually found everything we needed to prepare and enjoy large family dinners almost every night of the week. There was plenty of table space for everyone to eat. The back porch is no longer screened, but it's easy to understand how that would be tricky to maintain oceanfront, and the breezes kept the bugs at bay for the most part. There were plenty of comfy outdoor chairs everywhere to relax in whenever we weren't in the pool, or hot tub, or down at the beach body surfing, or riding bikes up and down the island etc.

So we had a few problems here and there: one of the dishwashers broke (but there's a spare!), a leaky ceiling, some nails pop up on deck boards... but one can understand that it has got to be hard to maintain a place that huge with only a few hours between guests each week all summer long. For me, the location and other amenities outweighed any minor inconveniences. Plus, we were all happy that we could bring some of our pets along with us. Not many rentals of this size allow them. Minor suggestion: while we enjoyed the eclectic decor throughout the house, leaving more empty space on dresser tops, tables and shelves would make it easier for guests to find space for their own things and keep organized during their stay. Also, more hooks to hang clothes & towels up.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Kiwi Splash!

Owner's Response: It was Wonderful meeting your lovely family! The Top Floor is a 7th Bedroom with optional use of French doors to separate the 2 queen beds from the King bed however you do have the bathroom off the King and the ground level Master has toilet & sink private to the Master however can also be optional to use for pool deck if you want to. I'm glad your group used these options and made it work for everyone! Thanks for your great suggestions!!! I will be happy to remove some décor in place of more countertop & shelf space for guests to use and I will be putting up more hooks as well. We're delighted you enjoyed the house and the fabulous pool which is the largest on the private home rental market! We'd love to have you return in the future! Take care, Ken & Julie
