My family booked the Hemingway for a family reunion. The home was very spacious and well kept. The property manager, was absolutely wonderful to work with. Any issues were dealt with very quickly. We would definitely stay again.

Lots of space but lacking attention in a few areas

  • 3 of 5

We chose this property because of the number of bedrooms for our family get together. Although the weather was dreadfully cold while we were there, the location of the house would be ideal during nice weather as it it just a short walk to the beach. Barbara the property contact was very helpful and pleasant to deal with.

We've rented many VRBO/Home Away homes in various locations across the country and although the size of this property was great, the Hemingway property fell short in a few areas.

Upon entering the home, we (the kids) found several dead cockroaches. It was as if the place had been sprayed and closed up, but no one came back to "sweep up" later. There was also a very strong wet dog smell (mainly in the basement level) - so much that some of our family could not tolerate it, and shortened their stay. ;( Both the porch swing and sofa needed a good cleaning as there were stains on them making for a not so great first impression. The dining room chairs all need replaced or the seats re done. They are quite worn with no padding and a few of them ripped or torn. Although there is a gas grill available to use, there was no propane. Not a big deal, but annoying to have to go buy a tank of propane. There are 2 bunk rooms on the main level - one of which appears to have been part of the porch, and later turned into a "bedroom". The main issue is there is no insulation in that room and you cannot close it off because there is no door. It was freezing! I'm guessing that the house is not rented much and when it is is, probably mostly during summer time, so the issue goes unnoticed. The same was true with the sitting room off of the master bedroom, although that room at least had a door that could be closed.

I always try to post helpful reviews for fellow travelers as well as suggestions to the property owners in hopes that they might give the necessary attention to items mentioned for future renters.

The Amazing Hemingway

  • 5 of 5

The Hemingway is BEAUTIFUL! I originally wanted a house on the beach, but lucked up on this beauty because I waited until the last minute to book for my large family (12 total). We couldn't have gotten a better deal. The owner was very personable; he took time to email his favorite restaurants and local attractions to visit. The property manager Barbara was awesome! We had one issue with the restrooms and she handled it within a few hours. She even kept us up updated on local events (fireworks on the beach and community yard sales). The location of the Hemingway is perfect; not to far from anything and walking distance to the beach. And if walking isn't your thing, the private beach parking was GREAT. My entire family is looking forward in staying here again! This really was a home away from home.

Pros: Private beach parking, location (to beach, shops and attractions); designed to sleep large families, provided towels and linens; kid friendly; no televisions in bedrooms.

Cons: no pool access

Something everyone should experience.

  • 5 of 5

Hemingway beach cottage is place everyone should experience once in there lives or more if you have the opportunity too. That feeling you get when your day to day work schedule or just everyday life brings your stress level up to your eyeballs and all you want to do is be in the comfort of your own home or quaint getaway. The Hemingway cottage has that home away from home feeling and a hop skip and a jump from the NC beautiful beach water, fine local restaurants, nightly entertainment and don't forget to visit Britts local doughnuts shop for breakfast or The Shuck and Shack local seafood bar and restaurant are a must do.

The house is filled with up to date amenetites, private reading alcoves, up to date kitchen and is layed out perfectly so you can still enjoy some privacy if you would like to have some time away from your guests. The fellowship I have had with my friends and family over the years is priceless on the cottages decks and hanging patio bed. It really beats staying at a hotel or condo community and haveing to deal with all the rules and loud neighbors. The perfectly landscaped community and local pool or private beach access are huge plus as well. The owner is easy to deal with and enjoys sharing his opinions with you so you and your guests have a safe, memorable, comfortable stay.
