  • Perfect, as always!

    "One of our friends put it best, coming to Idyll by the Sea is like going to your favorite grandmother's house. But better. And nicer. They were right. Idyll is perfect. High quality everything -- from the stemware to the towels to the bed linens! The location is private, the pool is spectacular. The decks and views can't be matched. Carol thinks of every detail and in the rare instance something breaks, she is responsive and ensures everything is taken care of by her fabulous local team. We could simply not imagine a better experience. And, obviously, neither could our friends! We have had many fabulous stays at Idyll and look forward to many more!"

  • Brand new, beautiful and so perfect

    "This was our first trip to Surf City and a great one it was. The home is beautiful and very well equipped with everything you need. The decor is beautiful in every room, significant space throughout. The hot water was always very hot and the water pressure was great too. 4 decks! Need I say more. The walk to the beach however was too complicated with toddlers although would be ok for teens and adults, we chose to drive to the public access beach areas. The views of the ocean from the house are minimal and very distant, not much of a view, sounds, in a previous review they said falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean were wonderful.... I think they may have had supersonic hearing, lol. The yellow room sliding door did not lock but was not a cause for worry. I was at loss for words when we entered the home, it was simply "wow"! Great visit. Words of advice, if you are not from the area and not familiar with it (we were not), bring some kind of bug repellent or stay inside as it becomes dark, the mosquitoes were terrible!!! 5 STAR HOUSE!!!! LOVED IT! Also looking left off the top balcony (non pool side) was an old dock, we walked through a run down path to get there but was nice photo experience, once again, wear bug repellent. A short ways passed the house was a small park where the small children could play and that also had a dock, was able to see a fox running through the wetlands. Very nice place to visit!!!! Two thumbs up on this property."

  • Great place to stay

    "We enjoyed our stay in A Mermaids Dream. The owner was very quick at responding. It was very helpful to have basic supplies already stocked. We also enjoyed the games provided in the home. The beach was very accessible and there was absolutely no crowd. Shopping and eating places were close by and the notebook with suggestions was very helpful. We had 4 teenagers and they had plenty of space and multiple options of things to do."

  • Great Stay!

    "Rented this lovely beach house to visit my daughter, her husband and my grandson. My daughter and her husband are currently active duty Marines stationed at New River Naval base. Even though the weather was too cold to be on the beach, the house was warm and cozy with all of the comforts of home! We had a great visit with beautiful views that gave us a much needed reprieve from our snow view back home in PA."
