Property description

WE HAVE OPENED UP TWO MORE WEEKS FOR SUMMER 2017. SO, WE NOW HAVE THREE AVAILABLE WEEKS...MAY 28-JUNE 4; JUNE 11-18; AND AUGUST 13-20. LOCK IN YOUR SUMMER VACATION TODAY!!!

NOTICE!!! RATES HAVE INCREASED BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 AS WE HAVE RENOVATED OUR "COOK'S ROOM". THIS IS A STUDIO TYPE ROOM WITH PRIVATE ENTRY AND PRIVATE FULL BATH UNDER THE HOUSE. IT'S PERFECT FOR SOMEONE SEEKING MORE PRIVACY FROM THE GROUP, TEENAGER OR LOUD SNORER:)

Welcome to our family cottage that was originally built in 1936. The cottage was destroyed by Hurricane Hazel in 1954 and rebuilt with more rooms and a wrap-around porch. This is a real beach cottage for those who appreciate the nostalgia of knotty pine walls and porch swings rather than jacuzzi's and video games. The ocean and beach are your playground, but there's lot of other fun things to do just minutes away. A modern kitchen with all you need to fix a big family dinner and a dining table that seats twelve. Extra 'beach showers' are under the house and a outside shower is just off the porch for rinsing off after a swim in the ocean. Our seven families have enjoyed this cottage for more than 70 years and we are only offering limited weeks for rental. All week-long rentals are Sunday to Sunday. We will try to accommodate other dates if possible. 3-day minimum rental in off season only; one week minimum rental in high season. Cleaning fee of $250 required. Refundable security deposit of $200. Bring or rent your own linens. Half rental fee due at signing with remainder paid 30-days prior to visit. Certified checks, money orders and now credit cards accepted. Tax rate of 14% for state and New Hanover County taxes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1936

About the owner: My grandfather built this cottage in 1936 and our seven families have enjoyed the cottage ever since. My cousins and I spent nearly a month at the cottage each year when we were young and enjoyed surfing, fishing, crabbing, going downtown, watermelon on the dune deck and more...which made for a wonderful childhood. Now my daughters enjoy the cottage during our family week.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach, NC, USA:
Carolina Beach has a beautiful strand that stretches from the northern extension all the way to Fort Fisher. It's a short drive from several neighboring states and only 2.5 hours from the Raleigh area. The downtown area and boardwalk are newly renovated with walkways, swings and more. Public tennis courts, lake with paddle boats and more are just a walk or bike ride away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You will be able to relax at a real beach cottage with porch rockers and hammocks. Walk 100 feet down our walkway to the beach for a day of sun, sand and sea. At night you can walk downtown to the arcades, rides and other fun things along the Carolina Beach boardwalk. Fireworks every Thursday night at 9pm during the summer months and our dune deck is the perfect spot to view the light show.
