"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!"

"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!"

"we stayed in the apartment above the main house for three days. The location of the property is just wonderful. Just one block from the charming little town of Beaufort. The apartment had everything we needed. The porch was so enjoyable. A great spot to sit and enjoy the breeze. We also went on the sunset cruise with Steve on lookout. The catamaran was just great. A must if you enjoy the water. Steve and his wife Gail were a pleasure. The gardens are just beautiful around the property. We would highly recommend any of their properties. The cochran's"

"We spent a week at She'll Cottage and couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations. We have family in Beaufort. On past visits we have stayed in hotels, but this is definitely the way to go! Shell Cottage was very clean and comfortable. The owner has thought of everything, from bikes & helmets to a brand new kitchen sponge. It was great having a washer & dryer and full kitchen. The cottage even comes with a selection of reading material. The wifi connection was great and the furniture was comfortable. Front St is a short walk away, so the location was super convenient, too. Best of all, the owner is really nice and easy to work with. Everything was handled promptly and in a very professional manner.
We will definitely choose Shell Cottage for future visits!"
