Amazing views, great location, comfy beds.

  • 5 of 5

This home is super roomy, perfect for our large gathering this past weekend! Linens and beds were very comfortable and the kids loved their bunks. The kitchen was well stocked and it was great having the extra fridge in the garage. There are great views of the ocean from all levels and having an elevator was a life saver when unloading/loading. I couldn’t find my code to get in and Greg texted me right away, also helped with any questions—thanks Greg!

Smile-Maker did not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

This was a well-kept, spacious home in an ideal location. Our family of 18 from 2 months to grandparents had plenty of space and bedrooms to accommodate all of us comfortably. The beach access was ideal. The owners were easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. It was a vacation we will always remember!

Great house for our Family!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week vacation together. The house was more than we could ask for, and with anything we found not working or needed attention the management group took care of it for us. We are so happy for our 1st visit to Carolina Beach we chose this house to spend a weeks vacation in.

It was perfect for the long weekend and hosting

  • 4 of 5

The bedrooms appeared all comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms of course. I loved the floors. The dishwasher really needs to be updated as it doesn't really clean anything and the prior guests put dirty dishes in cabinets- especially the silverware and glasses. The door lock system downstairs was also complicated to figure out. I knew linens were not included but for some reason I thought towels would be there so I had to go out and buy some for everyone because none of us were prepared. I gifted them to the property for anyone else who wants to use them. The washer and dryer were fantastic! Everyone that came to visit complimented the house and it was perfect for entertaining. We got married over the weekend and the wedding party stayed at the beach house and we hosted the weekend events there too and it was exactly what we needed space and entertaining wise. Emily was very responsive to questions and I would rent from her again

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for letting us know that the dish washer is not working properly. We did replace it last week, so that should no longer be a problem. We hope you will stay with us again soon! Thank you!!
