Late summer get-a-way
"Nana's Dream was just as described - a short walk to the beach, clean, comfortable and well supplied for a family's needs. We enjoyed watching the sunrises and sunsets while relaxing on the porches. Loved the open floor plan and the large kitchen (some of the utensils need replacement) This was our first time renting a house for our annual vacation and now it's the only way to go! Thanks for a good experience and if we return to Surf City we would love to stay at Nana's Dream again."

"This was my first ever beach front rental and by far my best vacation ever. The owners were extremely helpful and I knew if I had any question they were readily available by phone. We had 7 adults and 2 kids and everyone had plenty of room. The cottage is cozy and has a stunning view of the ocean in the main living area which has beautiful wood paneling. The screened porch is great for relaxing after (or before) a day on the beach. The beach itself is quiet and has plenty of shells. We found over 200 shark's teeth total in our party after we figured out what to look for. Due to ordinances ocean-side lights are turned off which makes for some great stargazing and moonlight beach walks. Everyone in our group agreed that we would like return to the beach and cottage."

"We were so lucky to have found this place. The house was great and the location was too! Our only regret was that our visit wasn't long enough. Hope to be back again soon. Thanks so much Merlin for letting us stay in your lovely home and enjoy the NC hospitality and beautiful weather."

"Far exceeded my expectations. Family was 2 1/4 hours and 6 hours away therefore able to visit on weekends. Friends traveling through or making it a special destination added to the pleasure. Met 5 wonderful ladies from Canada that had one of the units behind me. We turtle watched and had a few libations and french/southern dialogs (bonjour, y'all). BUT, WAIT, THERE'S MORE: Karen Beasley's Turtle Rehab and Hospital tour (a MUST SEE); Release of 8 rehabbed turtles ( one a 212# Loggerhead) at the public access Right Beside my steps!! Then: a turtle egg hatching that we kept watch over for over a week down toward the pier. Another previous hatching was excavated up toward the 'north' end of the beach. Fantastic weather for 3 weeks and 2 days. Even the rain was wonderful to watch from our vantage point. However, two storms out at sea caused a great deal of erosion on the dunes; followed by the rising tides as a result of the Red Moon+Full Moon. Great lesson for the little ones on the force of nature. They were enthralled with the turtles and learned what can happen to trash carelessly thrown on the beach or from ships.
Met Ray on first day. Gave him a 'punch list' on the second and he took care of everything or called someone who would.
The kitchen and master bedroom/bath on 3rd floor led us to state that the Beach House comes with a free Stairmaster feature."
