About Beata Lorinc

Hello, my name is Beata (rhymes with Miata) but you can call me Be. I've had "own a beach house" on my vision board since I was 30, and a few months before my 40th birthday my dreams came true. My husband and I are proud Penn Staters and currently live in Cary, NC with our two sons Leo (2006) and Dylan (2009), our new puppy (born 7/1/2017) our 4 cats (don't worry, none of the cats will come to the beach house).

My father is a skilled carpenter and mason an my mother is a professional housekeeper and I have been running Handy Maven, a boutique remodeling firm in Baltimore for them since 2012. I have been flipping houses with my dad since I was 12. I can not wait to dive in and continue making upgrades and remodels to this already gorgeous, sturdy and well maintained home.

Before I left my corporate career to raise my boys, I was a Logistician for Procter & Gamble. My favorite assignment was leading the customer service team,

I am also a trained speaker, writer, and trainer. I LOVE leading retreats and leadership events. My goal is to be of service to you in any way that I can be. I am the proud creator and leader of the Bliss Academy for Success and offer small business strategic consulting and implementation accountability.

My goal is to understand what kind of experience you are looking for and to deliver it with excellence. You can simply rent my home and have a DIY experience, or you can hire me to be your personal concierge planning and implementing anything that you and your fellow travelers will like. I have access to the best coaches speakers, artists, yogis, meditation experts and so much more in the country and would be happy to personalize your experience if that is what you would like.

Beata Lorinc purchased this house in 2016

Wonderful, spacious and very clean home! The ocean views especially at sunrise were extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

We only reached out to Beata once with a question and she quickly replied back. The apple TV’s came in very handy for movie nights. We enjoyed the sunrise every morning and collecting the numerous seashells on the beach with the kids. We were also able to have a day trip to Myrtle Beach since it’s only 2 hours away. Highly recommend this house! We hope to come back soon!

Awesome Spring Break on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, well taken care of home. We loved that the linens were provided, and the kitchen was well stocked. But, best of all was the view! You feel like you are on the ocean, and even though the weather was chilly, we spent time outside, in sand and water. (Well, the kids were in the water... we were bundled up watching!)

Beata was responsive to our questions, and we can't wait to come back! Thanks for the awesome stay. :-)

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I am a extremely picky person when it come to staying in places other that my home, that is why my husband got me a timeshare and vacation club membership :),

but this property was perfect in every way, the views, the beds, the space, how well stock it is and how clean every thing was. Also communication with the owner was always prompt and very professional, but welcoming. I will definitely recommend this property to family and friends. Kudos to the owners.

Excellent and affordable place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean, well maintained rental with all the amenities (sheets, towels, toiletries, etc) included which is something that you don't find included in most properties. The beds were super comfy, bathrooms were very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. The owner is very responsive to questions and really tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible, which we greatly appreciated after coming from such a long distance. The views were spectacular and the shops and dining were very close which was a plus. It is right next to a public access so we did have a lot of local fishermen on the beach in front of the duplex--if you're into fishing, you might be able to learn a thing or two! There are a lot of steps to climb up and down to the beach, but that just helped to burn the extra calories we ate while on vacation!!! The main reasons we chose this property were 1) not being locked into a full week rental, 2) the lower prices for off peak days, and 3) the fact that it was pet friendly and the fee was very affordable. You won't go wrong renting from Beata...we highly recommend her rental!

Great Property..

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family get together. The parking place is little tight, but enough for 2 cars. However, there is space for more right around the corner. House was very clean with spacious rooms and comfortable beds including the bunk beds. The view from the deck is outstanding. Beata was really accommodating during our entire stay. We had a great time, would definitely recommend this place.

One of the better beach trips I've had

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I took a week trip down to the beach with our dog. This house was a dream to stay in.

PARKING: one car, maybe 2 small ones, can fit under the house perfectly. Additional parking in the public beach access lot next door.

SAFETY/SECURITY: the house is tucked away in a small lot and we felt very safe. Everything locked & secured as it should.

BEDROOMS: large, cozy and plenty of room. Love those king beds and love that we didn’t have to make them ourselves or strip the sheets upon leaving.

BATHROOMS: clean and very large. Everything you need.

LIVING AREA: best place of the house with a great view. I don’t think I’ve stayed in oceanfront hotels that had this great of a view.

INTERNET/CABLE: wifi worked great. Cable as well in the living room. There are Apple TV’s in all the rooms which is a bonus.

KITCHEN: very clean and well-stocked. Probably has enough kitchenware to host Thanksgiving for two families.

THE VIEW: perfect. Can’t say anything else than that.

DECKS: very spacious. I like that the owners have a closet full of items left from previous renters including a gate to block off the steps so our dog doesn’t run down to the sand. Love the Adirondack chairs to kick back and relax as the sun comes up.

CONTACT WITH THE OWNER: very responsive and easy to communicate with. Beata was extremely pleasant.

OVERALL REVIEW: great house, great location. Didn’t want to leave. Bookmarked this place again in case I come back next year. Hope it’s available.
