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.

Our 2017 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We take a family vacation every two years and this year our family of nine went to North Carolina. We stayed at the property called, "It Takes Two" or "Our Place in the Sun." The name of the property was recently changed, I believe, when the Millers purchased it. The Millers were wonderful hosts and I highly recommend that you rent from them. The weather was perfect and everyone spent time on the beach. My grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool, an added bonus with its rainbow lights at night. I enjoyed sitting on the balconies and watching the waves roll in. Even during a morning rain shower, I could sit on anyone of the three balconies and not worry about getting wet. The third balcony is my favorite with the swing though. Everyone left with fond memories of Carolina Beach and the "Our Place in the Sun" property.

Perfect place to make beautiful family memories

  • 5 of 5

We love this home! Our family has been coming here since 2010. On our first trip, I was just weeks out of a cast after breaking my ankle. The elevator made that trip possible even though I could not walk on the sand. This beach home is perfect for all ages, infants to elderly. Our grandchildren have made sweet memories here. Several of them have learned to swim in this pool. They think of it as "our beach house" because it's the only one we want to come to. We love morning coffee on the porch watching the sun rise over the ocean. We love building sand castles on the beach and body surfing on the waves. We love taking walks after dark with flashlights looking for crabs. I will never forget the night that W, age four at the time, sang Davy Crocket at the top of his lungs all the way down the beach to the delight and amusement of several couples taking an evening stroll. We love swimming in the salt water pool, especially at night with the colored lights on. We love visits from our pirates who know we are there when we run the "Fish or Cut Bait" flag up the pole. They leave a treasure chest with gifts like chocolate coins, bubbles, flashlights, water rockets, sea animal toys, pool toys, and goldfish crackers. We've learned that this home has everything we need to be comfortable for the week. We cook in. We eat out. We relax. Thank you, Miller family, for sharing your blessings with us.

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".
