About Glenn and Melinda Miller

Glenn and Melinda live in Chesterfield, Virginia. Avid beach lovers, this purchase has been a life-long dream. With three children in their twenties and their first grandchild on the way, they wanted a place for their growing family to come back together and enjoy each other. They plan to also open it up for other family-oriented renters who value spending time with family and friends.

Glenn and Melinda Miller purchased this house in 2017

Why Glenn and Melinda Miller chose Southern Coast

Carolina Beach is a great beach with close proximity to Wilmington for upscale shopping, dining, and historic tours. Locally, Carolina Beach offers Freeman Park where you can drive your 4-wheel drive vehicle onto the beach. Masonboro Island is close by for shell seekers. Fort Fisher is only 10 minutes away - where you can go to the NC Aquarium and the historic battlegrounds. The North Pier is walking distance and a bike lane is available on street side. The Boardwalk and Britt's donuts are located approximately 1 mile from this home. Carolina Beach has unique shops, great restaurants, and local scuba diving, jet ski rentals and fishing tours.

What makes this house unique

Water views are available from almost every window since the front of the home is oceanfront and the back has waterway views which are great for boat watching. 'Our Place in the Sun' is located close to the inlet making dolphin pods swimming close to shore a frequent occurrence. Close proximity to the North Pier and Freeman Park make it an ideal location for those who like to fish, crab, or rake for clams. A private walkway to the beach with an outside hot/cold shower make going back and forth to the beach a 'breeze'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time staying in your carolina beach home Aug 9-16th!! It was perfect for all of us and loved having the pool! The set up and decor of the home feels like home away from home. It was so nice having all the extras and amenities yall have in the home as well with the extra beach chairs, floats, tables...etc. My 9 month old would fall asleep on the swing every time... lol :) My family and I just wanted to say thank you! Hopefully we can book it again for next year.

Fantastic Family Weekend-Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our Place in the Sun was very well equipped, impeccably clean, and provided the perfect place to build great memories with family. We are a super clean family that can be hard to impress but Our Place in the Sun was over the top organized, clean, and had ample space in dining, sleeping, and sunning areas. The pool was an added bonus after a long afternoon at the beach. Thank you for providing lounge chairs, umbrellas, floats, and coolers for the beachgoers in our group and all looked brand new. We will return again! Thank you for making our weekend at Carolina Beach extra special and for our arrival note and gift. Wow! Impressed!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation included 14 family members. 3 daughters, their spouses, and grandchildren ranging from 8 to 20 years old plus my husband and me. The view from the house was perfect for sunsets and sunrises, with beautiful views of the ocean. Everyone enjoyed the pool, especially for night swims. The beach is great for shell seekers and is within walking distance to the pier. The house itself was beautiful and felt like a well loved home: clean, well kept and very comfortable. Many wonderful memories were made at "It Takes Two".

Happy Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to do something different this Thanksgiving, and we stole away to the beach. We couldn't have had a better time! The weather was warm and sunny, and It Takes Two did not disappoint. Everything about this house is top notch! From the bed linens to kitchen utensils to the great selection of beach chairs and the view...the view is spectacular! There was a full moon, and we could see the waves crashing in the moon's light. The beach house is well maintained, and we felt very much at home as we celebrated Thanksgiving. We would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful as always!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed returning to It Takes Two for our birthday celebration. We love vacationing at Carolina Beach very much. The views from every direction of your home are incredible. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook in. The kids had a blast playing between the pool and the beach. Your location is perfect! Your home is close to everything but far enough away to avoid the heavy street traffic

associated with being right by the boardwalk. Thank you for sharing your lovely home and we will be back again!
