About Sarah Davidson

We are an active traveling family with 6 vacation properties for rent. This ocean front house, and another 6 houses down the street, a Townhome in Cottonwood, Utah (8 miles from Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton) and 3 Slopeside Condos in Wintergreen, Virginia. Vacation Year Round in one of our wonderful homes! We offer 10% discounts for customers who stay in two our homes in the same year. We are pet friendly because ours are apart of the family. We love to ski and play tennis as a family, but travel frequently for Sarah (Mom) who is a frequent triathlon competitor.

Sarah Davidson purchased this house in 2011

Why Sarah Davidson chose Long Beach

The View is Amazing. The ocean runs East to West so you get an Ocean Sunrise and Ocean Sunset. Conveniently located a half hour off Interstate 40.

Tennis For Free..Just 3 blocks from Free Public Tennis Courts that are in Great Shape!

For Golfers...The Oak Island Golf Club welcomes you to a coastal Carolina golfing experience. But summer vacationers to Oak Island’s vacation community in Brunswick County enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and warm southern hospitality that are hallmarks of Oak Island GC. The 18-hole, 6,720 yard George Cobb design provides an exciting adventure, round after round.

What makes this house unique

Rest, Beach, Bike, Tennis, Golf, Walks and Plenty of Night Life. Great for Families. The Wednesday Farmers market is 3 blocks away--so fun! Also in this area is a skate board park and children's playground!

We have another ocean front home 7 houses down the street if you are bringing more family and friends along--togetherness, but not too close!!

Owner's Response: Frank, Thank you for taking your time and reviewing you stay! We never want any surprises for our guests so "cottage was just as advertised" is always music to my ears! I also love hearing that you had a wonderful vacation, also our mission for all guests! This is your vacation after all and that is very important and we take that seriously. That is why we provide bikes, beach chairs and try and keep all appliances new and working great! Hope to see you come again. Take Care, Sarah

Just what we wanted!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. Great ocean front location with a wonderful deck. Dog friendly was a plus. We look forward to returning. Had a nice pizza from Pepperoni Grill just a few blocks away. Short walk to coffee shop, Food Lion etc. Owners very responsive to minor concerns.

We loved being beach front.

  • 4 of 5

This rustic cottage grows on you. Everything was functional and all appliances were new or relatively new. The porch was awesome and the views spoiled us. The inside was comfortable and had plenty of room. Sarah was excellent about getting back to us about some questions we had. Relaxing and carefree.

Owner's Response: Alice, You were wonderful and I'm so glad our little cottage had you both in it for 6 weeks! You weathered so very cold weather in the beginning. Thank you for saying I was "excellent" I would like to extend the same adjective to you--excellent! Thanks again and I'm really glad you all are thinking about coming back next winter! Take Care, Sarah

This was possibly the most perfectly set up beach house I've ever been in. Anything you might need to cook with - even a fresh juicer - so you have to bring literally nothing. Bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards. It's much roomier inside than it looks on the photos. And the porch overhang is large, so you can even sit outside in bad weather. Comfortable, carefree, clean. A great place. I'll be going back. And communication was simple and easy.

Owner's Response: Richard, Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Let me say you are a wonderful renter so 5 stars to you too! I need to redo those photos, sometimes the Iphone just doesn't do justice! Hard to beat that porch on any kind of day! When you come back there will be a new dishwasher and fridge we like to keep things updated! Thanks again, Sarah

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great 3 bedroom beach house - definitely an older style which I like. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Great porch with furniture. Beach was awesome. It could use a little TLC. Perfect place for gal's week-end. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Teresa, Thank you for taking time to review our home! We love the "older style" as well. Interestingly even my kids are more drawn to this beach home than other newer ones. Hard to not be happy and find contentment on the porch. I love it in the off season with a blanket wrapped around you or in the sunny summer where the partially covered part is helpful keeping the direct sun off you. We look forward to having you come back! Take Care, Sarah

The house was very cozy and perfect for my boyfriend and I. We'll bring the kids next time. It looked better in person than the pictures.

Owner's Response: Whitney, So glad you had a good vacation. The location is so convenient for restaurants or groceries or 30 feet to the beach! We are in dire need of new pictures. I'm glad it looked better in person! We can't wait for your return trip with the kids! Thank you, Sarah
