"We just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely cottage! Our family of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) had a wonderful time and the accommodations were perfect! Very cozy, clean, and proximity to beach could not have been easier. The adults enjoyed rocking in the rocking chairs on the covered porch and the children enjoyed playing on the deck and in the yard. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet, fun family vacation!"

The property was very well maintained, very clean and as advertised, well stocked with amenities.
"We were in Atlantic Beach for a our eldest daughters wedding. There were up to 15 people, aged from 17 to 77, staying in the house at various times and we had plenty of bed space and bathrooms to accommodate everyone. Lots of beach chairs and umbrellas to go around, although I wish we had brought a "beach cabana" so everyone could find shade together. In five days, we went out to eat just twice, so we were cooking and grilling most of our meals there. If you prefer a charcoal grill to a gas grill, like me, bring or buy one. Although the kitchen was a little small, it had everything we needed and more. Having a second full sized refrigerator on the first floor was a nice bonus.
All of us spent a good portion of our time, day and night, on the spacious back deck, which had plenty of chairs and wonderful views of Both sunrises and sunsets. Many of us fished, golfed, kayaked, swam or walked the beach and attended what was a wonderful wedding and reception. The customer service was excellent. I would recommend dining at "The Channel Marker," especially during the warmer months so you could do so outside.
The cottage was perfect for our needs and I recommend it for anyone staying in Atlantic Beach with up to 15 people. I will definitely consider staying there again."

"If you want to stay someplace that is a little "different," but is also welcoming, and in a great location, look no further. It has lots of natural light. We were happy the hosts were okay with us bringing our parrots and rabbit, who also enjoyed watching the squirrels, finches, butterflies, mockingbirds, and mourning doves who would visit the large wrap-around porch outside. The mattresses and sheets were incredibly comfortable, possibly the most comfortable ones I've ever experienced at any hotel or vacation rental. There is also a large shower and a charming tub. Everything is laid out and thought carefully out so that you don't have to look far for whatever it is you might need. Downtown New Bern is a short trip away, just over the bridge. I highly recommend it!"

"My wife and I capped off a trip through the Carolina's with a two-night, mid-week, off-season stay at Call My Bluff. The owner, Terry, has done a masterful job of transforming this former fishing cottage into a quaint and comfortable abode. There are many nice and original touches, ranging from the nautical-themed sconces to a huge swing-up window over the kitchen sink. The bed in the master was very comfortable and a futon in the main room would make for good sleeping as well. The loft would provide a charming nest for anyone's children. And therein is what is perhaps most unique about the cottage. It is the perfect get away for couples or singles of any age, or it can accomodate a family of six (though privacy would be at a minimum). Speaking of privacy, a quirk of the cottage is that access to the bathroom is via the enclosed front porch on the road side. But, Terry spoils her guests with plush terrycloth bathrobes to wear while going to and from. And, for outdoor shower worshippers like me, Terry has a world-class one. The cool, rainy weather kept us from enjoying the screened in back porch and the exposed deck, but the river view was spectacular none the less. Despite overnight temps under 50 degrees, the cottage was so cozy, we didn't need to use the space heater that Terry had fired up for us. Communication with Terry was excellent from start to finish. She was very responsive by e-mail and phone and anticipated our every question. She also has an extensive list of recommended sights and eateries, which is especially helpful for guests like us who were first-timers to the area and had no time for trial and error. Don't-miss opportunities include eating breakfast at the Live Oak Grill, literally two minutes away on foot, and buying fresh seafood from Keith at the Endurance, just this side of Oriental. We also had a great lunch at 247 Craven in New Bern. I could go on, but suffice it to say that we plan to come back for a longer stay in season."
