Smile Maker was the perfect home for our large family reunion. And the location and proximity to lots of fun was ideal. We loved every minute!

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!!

Amazing house right on the water

  • 5 of 5

Listening to crashing ocean waves all night is hard to find but this house gives that experience from many of its rooms. The house is spacious and decorated in a delightful beachy style. We had my husband's 40th birthday party at the Smile Maker and we were all very happy with the location, layout, and amenities of the home. The kids had a blast in the bunk room and playing air hockey. The home is close to a wonderful little store selling handmade breads and ice cream. The beach is just down from the pier so it is more private and easy to access. I am happy to recommend this house to any large group looking for space and proximity to the ocean. You can't beat the views from all 3 decks. The owner and management group is easy and thoughtful to work with.

Memorable!

  • 5 of 5

What a stay! Our family intended to use this as our Easter week gathering......but it turned out to be our daughter's wedding week as well! Everyone RAVED over the accomodations! The view can't be beat---to wake up to that view everyday was magical. The elevator, handicapp bathroom, electric recliner were SO welcomed! Everything was great.

(one note is fry pans cheap and uneven for cooking...had we known we would have brought some better ones along.... several of the guys are superb cooks(the groom himself being a chef)...so there was some growling about the pans.--other wise more than we used!)

The intercom system was utilized often....be prepared if you have some children using 3rd floor....we ALL stated we are out of shape and calves were burning! GREAT workout ;).

Thank you for a great stay.

Absolutely incredible house

  • 5 of 5

This place is very well maintained. There's plenty of room and parking. The view is incredible. The owners and previous owners were very responsive and understanding. It was the perfect place to house the bridesmaids, groomsmen and immediate family for my wedding!
