About The Owner

We purchased this 1941 Beach Cottage in 2011 and completely renovated it to make for a spohisticated, relaxing, and comfortable beach getaway. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Carolina Beach

Proximity to the beach, state parks, inland harbor, shopping, dining, and entertainment, all the while being located on a quiet street just far enough away from the action to escape.

What makes this cottage unique

When renovating this home, we did so as if it were our primary residence, paying special attention to providing good beds, relaxing living spaces, and a well appointed kitchen. We enjoy entertaining in our home, and this kitchen allows for great entertaining.

Quiet, clean home, very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We loved everything about the house and plan on staying here next year. The owner was quick to get back to us to answer any questions we had. The house was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation!

Our first stay won't be our last!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in the Carolina Beach area and it won't be our last! I researched many properties for our family vacation and I couldn't have made a better choice in this cozy beach cottage. When we walked in my husband laughed and agreed it felt like we could have decorated/furnished the house as it fits our taste perfectly and made it feel like home. The Sonos sound system was a nice treat. The book shelf contained so many wonderful novels ( The World According to Garp is one I highly recommend!).

The house was very comfortable for our family with surprisingly large bedrooms (for a cottage), a nice large dining room table for family meals or playing cards and board games, and a well-stocked kitchen for making full meals.

The large screened-in porch was great for enjoying the outdoors without dealing with mosquitoes. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks too! The house is on a quiet street away from the noise of the boardwalk, but so conveniently close to it all (just a few blocks). I felt very safe and comfortable letting my son (11) explore the grounds. We rented a golf cart to get around for the week and it was a game-changer, but the bikes provided would have made short work of beach/boardwalk going as well. Also, having the use of the boogie boards and beach chairs and umbrellas was great.

I cannot wait to return next year, as I believe we have found "our place" in Carolina Beach.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us this week, Heath!

Classic Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage perfectly appointed with beach themed items. Nice private property a short distance to the beach. We used the provided bicycles to get to the beach and around the neighborhood.

Heath has excellently communicated from the booking to after check out.

Try Blackburn Brothers fresh seafood right off the dock seafood!!!

Amazing Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the cottage for a week to spend some time with my two college bound kids. Could not have been more pleased with the accommodations! The house is spacious and has everything you would require to enjoy a leisurely stay at the beach. Everything you could need is within walking distance to the cottage. We enjoyed nightly walks; however, the owners provide bikes that would help with getting places even quicker. We visit Carolina/Kure Beach area with frequency each summer for day trips and have rented several places over the years. This by far was our favorite little spot! We will most definitely be planning a return trip as soon as possible!

Nothing less than amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing surprise upon entering the home. The pics do not do any justice to the true beauty of the grounds and spaciousness of this home and property. Everything you could possibly need was already there. The bikes came in handy, story telling around the fire pit afternoon naps on the hammock underneath the bamboo wind chimes to evening sharded played under the Christmas lights on the screend in porch. This place is magical will deff be returning!!!!

Loved the place! We will be back next year.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Carolina Beach before, but this is the nicest place. We had 4 little kids with us and so the outdoor showers, screened in porch, and well-appointed kitchen were very welcome. We loved the big yard, but especially the classy décor inside. We thought the eclectic furnishing and art was very homey. Riding our bikes around Carolina Beach gave me renewed appreciation for the lovely home and setting. It's near to the beach and the grocery store. The garage is so great because it has bikes to use and all the beach equipment you need. The owners were really pleasant to work with and I received my deposit back very quickly.
