so cozy and comfortable!! just steps away from the ocean - much closer than the pix made it seem!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoy out safe!! The cottage is much closer to the ocean than the impress we got from the pictures!! We slept with windows open and could hear the ocean ,feel the breeze and smell the salt air!! The cottage is has a very comfortable living area with tv and cable as does the upstairs apartment. The kitchen is well furnished with coffee pot, microwave, pots, pans and dishes!! The outside shower is very nice with hot and cold water. Parking is great !! very quiet neighborhood and beach was not crowded at all!!

We loved our stay. The convenience of being just across the road from the beach was wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

The little bungalow is charming. The main floor refrigerator had trouble staying cold. Phil sent out a service man who helped us get the refrigerator part working better, but the freezer was never dependable. The upstairs frig worked well. The upstairs apartment was a real plus for our family group. The upstairs crew said the beds there were not super comfy and blinds or curtains would have been welcome when the sun rose earlier than they wished, but the view was spectacular! The little boys loved their bunk bed room. The kitchen was very convenient, and the laundry room was wonderful! The beach supplys in the garage were very useful. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We would love a return visit.

Older, cottage style beach house, ground level

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the beach. The property met our needs and was comfortable. There are pots and pans available, a crock pot and grills, however, you might want to bring some non-stick pots and pans for cooking on the electric stove. Also, there is no WiFi and Verizon 4G was sporadic . The television channels are bare bones cable - no premium channels. But, the beach is the main draw and you can't beat the access and view. A great place to get your beach fix!

Fantastic location with plenty of room, but had a few issues.

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a rental that has ample space with limited travel time to the beach, this is the place! It is located right across the road from the dunes with no other houses set in front of it. For the most part, my family had most of the beach in front of this house to ourselves and it is conveniently located close to Food Lion and Eagles. The downstairs has a King room, a Queen room and a front room that has bunk beds. The living room also has 2 large couches, one a pull out and a nice leather chair. The fact that this place has a washer and dryer was a huge plus. There is a upstairs "apartment" that has a small kitchen, 2 twin beds and a pull out sofa but you have to access it from the outside.

The drawbacks to this place was that the downstairs air conditioning would not get below 77 degrees in the living room/kitchen and dining room during the heat of the day. We figured out on the 2nd day if was more than likely because one of the floor vents was covered up by the couch, but moving the couch only alleviated the problem to get to about 75 degrees. The bedrooms were comfortable at night since they also had ceiling fans. Also, the outside shower was nothing but a trickle and and you couldn't get clean in it, so we ended up just hosing the kids and us down with the garden hose on the side of the house. The upstairs apartment was nice and cool with one window unit, but the bathroom was hot unless you kept the door open.

Also, we had rented the house for 5 nights and were planning on staying Sunday and leaving on Friday. There were no instructions from the homeowner on how we were to leave the house when we checked out on Friday so I texted the homeowner on Thursday mid day, to find out how he wanted the unit left. He promptly responded, "You paid for 5 nights correct" to which I responded that we did and would be leaving on Friday and never received another text back from him. We ended up stripping the beds and leaving them in the laundry room and putting a few dishes in the dishwasher and starting that and swept up and left.

Overall, we were pleased with our stay despite the minor issues and would probably rent this location again if the air conditioning was updated. Thankfully it was in the mid to high 80's most of the week, it probably would not have been tolerable if the temperatures outside were in the 90's.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week staying at this location. It was everything it was portrayed to be. We felt at home and enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. The owner was wonderful to work with and we had everything we needed. Would love to come back next summer.
