Crystal Coast Guest Testimonials

See what our vacation guests have to say.  Here are some of the most recent guest testimonials over the last 3 years. 

We were extremely impressed with everyone we encountered at Bluewater. The communication we received before check-in regarding the local community, restaurants, etc. and at check-in regarding check-in/checkout was clear and concise and we appreciated being able to utilize texting (and the numbers for who to contact for what issue was made very clear as well). Any time we reached out we received a quick response which was appreciated. Bluewater gets an A+.

Everything was very seamless – check-in and check-out, as well as our entire stay. We LOVED it!! Thank you for everything.

We usually choose a beach house at a different beach for vacation. This year we chose Emerald Isle and a condo. Bluewater Vacation Rentals made the reservation seamless and the vacation was nice. They also offered a military discount! We’ve decided that a condo is too small for us so we will be back to using a beach house. We did love this beach more than any other beach we’ve been at. The water is so clear and clean. Several things to do in the area and it made it a nice family vacation. Thank you Bluewater!

I am truly BLOWN AWAY by the excellent service we have already received in our first week staying at a Bluewater-managed property (Pebble Beach, Emerald Isle, NC) in December 2020. We have gotten terrific service from everyone we have been in contact with, including Joyanna Gratton in Rental Sales, Maintenance, Housekeeping, and front desk staff at the Rental office. Bluewater is doing a really excellent job. It is a real and rare pleasure to receive such great service all around.

Y’all knock it out of the park!
We filled out the check-in checklist provided in the unit to notify Bluewater of things needing attention, including a dishwasher repair, and turned it in on Friday. On Saturday afternoon we also discovered we needed a washing machine repair. By Sunday afternoon, every item on the list was taken care of, in detail, even the “little things” on our crazy-long list.
Kudos to Donnie in Maintenance for fixing a washing machine and dishwasher that both seemed unfixable (saving the owner from having to buy 2 new appliances, and me from making do without them until they could be replaced), and for fixing everything on our list. The repaired washer and dishwasher are now working great and we feel so grateful. What a BLESSING y’all are, thank you!

We always rent with Bluewater Vacation Rentals. They make the whole process effortless from start to finish. The staff is always very friendly and informative. Love the layaway options for the rentals also! I have always recommended Bluewater to my family and friends for a great vacation experience. We are already planning for next year’s visit to beautiful NC.

Bluewater is great! Been renting from you all for close to 20 years.

We have been booking fall vacations on Emerald Isle for nearly 20 years. We’ve used several different rental companies but we always go back to Bluewater.

We have been vacationing at Summer Winds in Emerald Isle, NC for several years now. We always rent with Bluewater Vacation Rentals. They make the whole process effortless from start to finish.

I’ve booked with Bluewater three times now, two different houses. Both houses were awesome for what we needed, nice and clean and no issues at all. Will definitely book with them again in the future!

We have stayed with Bluewater several times and have always been pleased with the service. Even when issues arose they were quick to take care of whatever came up. I would definitely use Bluewater again in the future.

I have used Bluewater Vacation Rental’s a few times and they have never disappointed me. The last house we rented for a week was amazing. Super clean and close to the beach and attractions. Booking the vacation house was easy and any issues that we had before or while staying at the home were taking care of in a reasonable amount of time. We will be using Bluewater in the future for our family vacations!

Bluewater is the only company we ever rent from when going to Emerald Isle. The houses are always impeccably clean and the customer service is outstanding. It is also nice that some of the properties allow pets without a pet fee. Highly recommend going through them to book your next vacation!!

The beach house was lovely. The sliding door was off track and very hard to open. We called Bluewater and it was repaired right away. We loved the location and cleanliness of the house!

We stayed at Looney Dunes in October and it was great, beyond our expectations. Bluewater is great to work with and is quick to respond to any requests you make. I highly recommend Bluewater and Looney Dunes. Very pleased and plan to use them again.

I have used Bluewater for several years and am always happy with their service and properties. Their communication is helpful, and they are always responsive. I look forward to future reservations with Bluewater!

Admiral’s Watch, was as advertised. very clean. Perfect for our large family group. Bluewater was excellent to deal with.

Always helpful, friendly, very convenient service! This year we had an issue with the septic and you had someone there that night to fix it! We have used Bluewater for over 10 years and will be back!

We have planned our beach vacations with BluewaterNC for years now and we’ve never been disappointed. Most of their rentals are immaculate and provide all the necessary perks for an awesome beach vacation. Whenever we’ve run into a problem with our rental (a rare occurrence), BluewaterNC has gone above and beyond to address the issue. We’ll never use anyone else!

We love, love, love Emerald Isle and the simple and easy way to check in and check out. We have never been disappointed !! Thank you Bluewater !!

I stayed in 1 Fish 2 Fish this year and could not have been more pleased. The house was perfect for our large family—2 nice screened-in porches, 6 large bedrooms, huge tables for eating, and a gorgeous beach theme throughout. The kitchen was well stocked, the house was clean, and we all decided this was our house for next year! I’ve been dealing with Bluewater for years now—they have always taken care of any issues that arise and even notified me, and asked if we wanted to change houses because the elevator had taken a hit during the previous storm. Customer Service to the MAX for me!

We’ve been renting homes through Bluewater for more than 15 years, and we wouldn’t consider any other company! Awesome people and awesome rentals!

Hailey in Customer Service / Reservations was very friendly, professional, helpful, diligent, and patient in assisting with my booking. Speaking with Nikki was also a positive, effervescent conversation. Kudos to Bluewater. Great staff!

Bluewater is great and responsive to renter issues! Keep it up. We appreciate you.

This was my first time with Bluewater. Have been to Emerald Isle for years with other major rental agencies on the island. Will never go back to them. Bluewater is amazing – from online rental portal, to keyless rentals, to AMAZING customer service AND people the actually answer the phone for monthly rentals. And are lovely on the phone! Thanks for a wonderful rental experience!

Keep up the great job! This was a magical vacation in a splendid property managed by awesome managers!

I liked the keyless entry. Everything was nice. We will probably stay again in the near future.

Always pleased with Bluewater.

We have rented through Bluewater for six or seven consecutive years. Our question or concerns have been answered promptly. Their selection of pet-friendly homes is the best on the island. Keep up the good work and hopefully we will be able to rent through this company for 2019.

We were treated very nicely and hope to book again with Bluewater

All who helped us check in and out and on phone were so pleasant and helpful.
