Great New Year's get away

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay.. It was cold which was unusual but we enjoyed our family time. We did a "disconnect" weekend so we did not use the the internet, cannot comment on internet service. Leaving New Year's day, would have been great to load in the garage instead of out in the wind.

We would love to rent again.... Awesome location 😤 Enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: We have always tried to provide accurate information about our home, quickly complete any repair/maintenance issues and address any concerns expressed by our guests. I'm very disappointed that we did not meet expectations in this case and would've welcomed the opportunity to address any dissatisfaction.

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised and the location was supreme. Close enough to good restaurants yet secluded enough that we felt like we owned the beach (at least during this off season time).

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Plenty of room. Nice covered deck outside. Right on the beach - always the best choice! We bought fresh fish from Surf City Crab every day and made dinner at home every night. Had plenty of dishes, forks, etc but will say if you need a sharp knife you might want to bring your own. Oh and so since linens aren't included don't forget that dish towels are considered linens, lol! Totally slipped our mind, so paper towels were our friend. Also, outside the house, check out Fractured Prune for donuts (yummy!) and the little taco shop attached to the surfing school across the street from Daddy Mac (good fast fresh food and beer too!) and of course also check out Daddy Mac for a great view while having a bite to eat and a cool Corona!

Wonderful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our time at this house. It was clean, comfortable, and felt like home - only better. It was so relaxing, just what we needed.

The layout was great, the kitchen well stocked with everything you need, and the beach was perfect. The sunrises were spectacular, and we got to enjoy watching the dolphins play. I regret not bringing my binoculars and the longer lens for my camera.

We rented our linens thru Sweet Dreams Linen Rental and they were great.

The next time we are out that way, this is the first place I will look at to rent. We could not have been happier with our stay .
