Fabulous Fun at the Flip Flop Inn
"The Flip Flop Inn was the perfect family retreat for our Easter vacation. The décor and layout was perfect for a family that likes to spend time together, but also likes to retreat to their own private space. Our favorite gathering spot was the sun room with views of the golf course. The location of the Flip Flop Inn was perfect for a bike ride into town for ice cream and only a short distance from the beach. We spent most of our time biking, playing in the ocean and relaxing on the beautiful beach. We will cherish the Flip Flop Inn memories!"

"This is by far the BEST rental we have ever booked. From the moment we walked into the home, we could see that it was clean and comfortable. The owner, Karen, is very responsive and pleasant to deal with. She provides all the amenities to make your stay comfortable, from shampoos, soaps, detergent, etc. to beach towels and chairs. The jacuzzi was a plus and well used. The location of the house is great. Its in a cup-de-sac so there is little car traffic and its a short walk or bike ride from the beach. Our family plans to make this a summer vacation destination for many years to come!"

"This place was great. Everyone was pleasantly surprised that it was as nice and as big as it was. The pics don't do it justice. Our group was comprised of three married couples and two teenage girls. The girls shared the attached large "apartment" above the garage, and the rest of us had our own bedrooms with spacious bathrooms. The master suite is especially nice and huge.
The walk to the beach is about 15-20 minutes max and takes you through a beautifully manicured neighborhood, across a short bridge over a small lake. The beach is beautiful and frankly, barely populated. If you take a bike it's five minutes from house to beach. Harris Teeter (grocery) is about a10 minute drive and is very well stocked. Turtle Point golf course is a two minute drive, and this home is located on one of its holes (the back deck was good for watching bad golf and one really big alligator).
We spent a week there and thoroughly enjoyed the deck, the small pool (the water somehow remained comfortably cool despite the 95+ degree temps) and huge screened in porch complete with two ceiling fans. We cooked on location every day, breakfast and dinner. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prep pretty much anything. (Of course you bring your own food!) Used the gas grille on three or four occasions.
The home is tastefully decorated with Danish teak furnishings throughout. I highly recommend this home. We had one minor question for Jill the owner and she responded within minutes.
Finally, is this place 100% perfect? No, of course not. It's a home, and as with all homes, there will always be one or two things that can use a little TLC. Did it exceed our expectations? Absolutely. You won't be disappointed. We were glad we found this place!"

"This is our fifth year of Bi-Annual visits to this place of perfection. If you are looking for a quite, relaxing venue surrounded by the sea, a plethora of cuisine choices and lots of natural adventures...this is the place. The house has privacy with convenience to activities - well equipped and comfortably appointed. A great layout for multiple couples or family gatherings, yet still appealing to the lone couple who wants some away-time! Book today, don't miss your chance!!!"
