This week the Carroll families are renting 124 Heverly Drive in Emerald Isle. A popular component of many Emerald Isle beach vacation rental properties is a guest book or renters journal. The property owners of Carefree Sandancer West offer such a journal for their rental guest. Curious to know what other renters have documented, I peeled back the pages to find some interesting observations about the unit and what activities visitors enjoy when they come to the Crystal Coast.
What’s on the Minds of Emerald Isle Vacationers
The format of this particular guest book went like this:
- Date you arrived
- Date you departed
- The weather during your stay
- What we did
- New encounters (friends/creatures)
- Projects (started/completed)
- Favorite moments
- Notes (some used this section to leave feedback to the owners like what needed to be repaired or comments about the rental property)
Carefree Sandancer West Guest Journal Entries
Here are a few of the more interesting entries written in the Carefree Sandancer guest journal.
“I was a Carefree Sandancer. No husband, no sons. Spent the week with friends reading, talking and listening. It was a much needed break to rest and refresh. I feel like a beautiful woman again.” June 25, 2006.
“As I put pen to paper, it’s easy to know why Hemingway loved island life. The tastes from food, smells and seafood. It’s well worth the trek every year.” August 4, 2007.
Among the many family themed entries was this warm-hearted thought; “This is our 6th year. We have special memories every year. We are taking our youngest child off to college next week and this has been great to be together before her new adventure.” August 16, 2008.
I found this entry to be very interesting as it was offered by someone visiting from Northern Ireland. “Just loved this Emerald Isle. The color of the ocean is definitely emerald green but the weather is much better than it is on the olde sod“. August 18, 2007.
