Recent Surf City reviews
Life is wonderful by the sea
"This is a awesome place. The kids and grandkids loved - stated it was the best so far. The "courtyard" is a great place to gather - the hammock was used by the grandkids. They loved it. The cottages were great - the main house had two pack-n-plays and a booster seat for the table. Plenty of chairs for the beach, swimming pools for the toddlers. It was fantastic. I would highly recommend. Thanks Babs!!"

"What a great place to stay! The view from every window was spectacular. We love to leave the windows and doors open so we could hear the sound of the surf all day long. We spent our days relaxing on the beach reading, collecting seashells and making Sandcastle's. We rode our rented bikes up and down the beach and into town. There were many wonderful restaurants in town and a few grocery store is very nearby to get all your supplies. It was a pleasure to deal with the owner of the Escape Hatch. The house was neat and clean and ready for us when we arrived. This is definitely a home away from home that we would like to return to in the future!!!"

"The best part of the house is the view. It's magnificent.
The house itself was decent. All the showers functioned, the appliances ran fine (although the dishwasher didn't seem to clean very well), and the air conditioning worked. It does need some general home maintenance work. In addition, the property could have been cleaner. It was clean enough for the week, but it definitely needs a deeper cleaning. The steps from the deck to the beach are buried in sand worse than any of the other properties around it. It makes walking to and from the beach very difficult.
The only other thing that I can say is that the photos of the property need to be updated. There are duplicate photos and some of the furniture is different than what is in the photos as is the color of the house, which was a bit confusing when we first arrived. To be clear, the photos currently listed do not misrepresent the property by any means they simply are out of date.
Would we stay at this property again? In its current condition, I'm not sure. We enjoyed our time at the beach and the house suited our needs and our budget."

"Spacious up to date clean condo. Many extras grill beach toys chairs umbrellas everything you need. Kitchen was well equiped with dishes pots pans mixer blender everything you needef. Easy access to beach for older couple and children. Clean pool to use. Great location to store (iGA) for anything you forgot. Very family oriented enviroment. This was our first time renting condo/house in NC and was very happy. Just bring clothes food and lots of energy. Rental agency was great to deal with."
