About the owner: We are from Chapel Hill , NC. Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina! This is our second year on VRBO. For the past 11 years, we have had full occupancy. We love Surf City and we know you will too. When we are at the beach, we usually walk the dog and drink our morning coffee out on the beach. The guys try to get out early and surf fish or play golf. The beach is so close, we go and come as we please throughout the day. The kids walk along the beach or ride bikes into town to eat. Frequently, wel will have pizza delivered out to the beach. Sometimes they will catch a vollyball game on the beach or play basketball at the other park area near the center of town. In the evening, if no one has caught fish, we usually go pick out something from the local seafood market. Surf City also has a wide assortment of restaurants which are good when we don't want to cook. We usually end up on the deck or visiting out on the beach after dinner.
Why the Owner Chose Surf City: We are the original owners of this cottage. We purchased the lot in 1994 and built the house 2 years later. Our children were quite young when we built the house and when they first saw the cottage, it was not what they expected. Our youngest said it looked like a big box on sticks!! Through the years, we have enjoyed our time spent together there and getting away from the craziness of living in a college town. We have found throughout the years when we do want to get away, we want to have everything we need waiting for us at the cottage such as towels, linen, beach chairs, boogie boards, kitchen items, paper goods, detergent and especially the cleaning. It makes a vacation so much more enjoyable when these details are taken care of! We try to take care of these details for you to make your vacation worry free.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The cottage is in a great location! We love being so close to the water and many activities. Many times when we are at the cottage, we never use our car. If we want to go into town, we walk or ride bikes. We love our 2 outdoor showers with dressing areas. The double decks are also really great. We have a large screen tv that can be seen from the large open kitchen, family room, dinng room. Guests love the stocked storage area with chairs and toys. Linens, towels and beach chair use are also included in the price.
