Guestbook comments from the manager

This home was spacious and a great floor plan. The lighting and decks were so nice and we enjoyed being able to listen to the ocean while sitting outside. The owner provided plenty of reading, music, and television. The water smelled terrible and the cleaning service left much to be desired. We had to vacuum, buy bleach to clean toilets and scrub the kitchen floor in order for it to be clean enough for our standard poodle. The bed we used, master bedroom had fitted sheets that would not stay on the corners.

We all loved the location. It was a very short walk to the beach and a little longer to the sound. Both with beautiful views of the sun. The ocean can be seen from upper deck. Great renters house has everything you could need for the beach except your swimsuit.

Loved the shell house

Better than expected

  • 4 of 5

The Shell house is spacious. More so than expected. So close to the beach. I felt if there was a problem I could call any time. It was beautiful. The house was very clean. I would definitely recommend this property. My one recommendation do not get a steamed seafood pot from Cravings, one thing when all food is steamed together your lobster may taste like sausage.. go to the market and but it separate. One attraction to not miss is Jockey ridge at sunset, almost like going to Mecca...if you go you will see what I mean! My only concern is the water had a yellow tinge. We did not drink it. My dogs survived, just bring your own water to be safe
