"The cottage is a no-frills place to relax and enjoy all the surrounding areas to explore - the view from the windows is mesmerizing - looking out at the bay was a favorite past-time! The people on the island are really friendly and welcome "outsiders" - different from some of the other islands I've visited, like Tilghman's...the water definitely lives up to its name, crystal clear and emerald! Swimming was awesome!"

"My husband and I spent last week at this great cottage. The cottage and its amenities were exactly as described. The rental process was easy and Tim answered all our questions in a timely fashion.
We have rented several houses in NC & VA and, even though the kitchen was small, it was the best stocked yet! We cooked several delicious seafood meals, using the large stock pot two nights for crab & shrimp boil. We caught the crab from the dock using our crab pots and the shrimp was purchased from Mr. Big’s, located on the island. For breakfast, we bought sausage from Billy’s Grocery. They grind their own sausage and the spicy is delicious. Pretty spicy, so if you do not like heat, try the regular.
We docked our boat at the house most of the week, pulling it out when the weather turned rough mid-week. If you have a shallow-draft boat, you will have no problem doing the same. We used Cape Pointe Marina to launch our boat and fill up with gas. They are very friendly and helpful.
If you like local history, you should visit the Core Sound Museum. The second floor is FULL of local historical pieces. We visited on one of the rough-weather days. We were so intrigued with the little towns that, the next day, we drove through those communities, all the way to the Cedar Island Ferry.
The view off the dock is spectacular, both day and night. If you are looking for a small cottage to get away from the hustle and bustle, this is it!"

"I was pleasantly surprised at the convenient location and all of the amenities at the home we rented. The home had a very nice kitchen and a game room with a ping pong table. The owners made bicycles available for us and we had our own laundry room. We grilled our catch from a deep sea fishing trip out of Morehead City on the Carolina Princess. We would do that again! We also took a trip to sand dollar island during low tide to dig up, you guessed it, sand dollars. We found a lot of sand dollars, too. We were able to visit the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores and go to the beach at Fort Macon a few times. We were also able to have family dinners at the home to save on dining out and we enjoyed having the space. Very nice!"

"Owner recommended a couple restaurants, his first was a fantastic choice. Canoe and Kayak provided excellent access to Islands. House was well equipped with top notch appliances. I am 58 and this is the BEST vacation home in which I have stayed. Neighborhood very nice and friendly. Whole family wants to go back!"
