Great house for a large family!
The house exceeded all expectations! 6 beds. Living room for the adults and a den for the kids. Very clean and location is excellent. Will definitely rent again for future southport vacations!
Our family stayed for 3 nights during the Thanksgiving holiday. We absolutely loved the property. It’s as described and pictured. Since the house had 2 living rooms/dens there was plenty of room to spread out. It’s within walking distance of many local restaurants and shops. We didn’t even drive our car, we just walked everywhere. Southport Realty made check in and check out a breeze and gave us phone numbers to call if we had any issues - which we did not.
Pros: right on the Riverwalk which made it great for daily strolls and walking off our Thanksgiving meal. Fantastic views. Close to everything. Large house with plenty of space. TV’s in every bedroom. Sheets, towels and beds were nice.
Cons: (by no means are these a huge deal but might be important to someone) small kitchen. Needs more frying pans (only 1) and baking dishes if you plan to cook. Needed more kitchen knives.
Thank you for staying at Corlette House and for the review! I have purchased additional kitchen items and placed them in the cabinet in the dining room. Your reviews help us know how to improve the stays at our property and are greatly appreciated! ~Heather at Southport Realty
Dreamy Historic House in Southport NC
The historic Corlette house was wonderful! We were there for a week of wedding festivities. The views from the house were amazing! We could ship watch, observe the Oak Island and Bald Head Island lighthouses and just simply enjoy the coziness and charm of historic Southport . Did not want to leave. The house made you feel at home with it’s decor and comforts. Will definitely go back !
Thank you for the review! We would love to have you back for your next stay in Southport! Have a wonderful holiday season! ~Heather at Southport Realty
The Corlette House was everything that we had hoped for and more.
We were enjoying a wonderful family vacation in beautiful Southport, NC, until a mandatory evacuation was ordered by authorities, due to Hurricane Florence. From Saturday-Tuesday morning, we thoroughly enjoyed the house. It was very spacious, offering everyone, including our grandchildren, a part of the house to enjoy. The large dining room table was perfect for our family to enjoy meals together. I cannot say enough about the spectacular views of the Cape Fear River from this house. We sat on the porch in the evenings and after dark, enjoying everything including the stars at night. The Corlette House was in walking distance of some of our favorite restaurants. Our prayer is that the people of Southport and the beautiful homes fared well in this storm. It is our hope to return some day soon.
Thank you for your review! I felt so bad that you had to leave due to the hurricane. Southport is bouncing back and ready for guests! I hope you will plan a visit with us again in the future! ~Heather at Southport Realty
beautiful, spacious, and well-located!
we loved our stay! It was perfect for four couples and three little ones under 2... very clean, plenty of space, and incredibly well-located for walking to restaurants, shops or a quick drive to beaches.
Thank you for your review! This is a great home for exploring Southport and surrounding areas. And you can't beat the view! I hope you will plan another visit soon! ~Heather at Southport Realty
Great location- not wowed by the house
Love the location of the house! Right across from the water. Was nice looking out at the boats from almost all of the rooms in the house.
We traveled with our two young children and we noticed the house is a bit run down. Looks like the carpet needs to be replaced, now mind you we had two little ones crawling around the carpet so you tend to notice everything. The showers also need to be updated. Downstairs by the toilet there was a rusted toilet brush (nobody wants to see that). We understood going into this this was a historic house, but we figured it would be nicer based on the good reviews.
The realty company was great- and addressed our concerns and sent out a housecleaner that day to clean again, Which was very nice of them. We left two days early and asked for a refund, the owner refunded us one nights worth, better than nothing I suppose. If they were understanding and refunded us fully I wouldn’t be writing this review. However, we spent quite a bit and feel it was a bit of a waste & will not be returning to this house in Southport.
This popular sprawling Historic Home was built in 1888 and has the features many desire when they visit quaint Southport. We have never had a negative review of the home and take care in the cleaning and upkeep of the home. The carpets are cleaned on a regular schedule. I am sorry that it was not a fit for you and your family.
