This is probably our favorite spot at Carolina Beach. Perfect location close to beach, food, and family. We utilized the screen porch to the fullest. Thank you for access to a cart we could take to the beach. All in all this house was a comfy fit and we would totally like to rent again.

Ruffian's Roost - Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

The two of us stayed at the beach house in May 2013. We travel extensively throughout the

United States. This was one of the nicest properties we have seen available for rent.

It was immaculate, beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you could need.

The layout makes it the perfect place for a couple, a family or a group of friends.

The upstairs master suite was beautiful, you could see the attention to detail throughout.

It had a large bath and laundry room however, my favorite spaces were the office/reading

area overlooking the living space below and the private deck for sunning and enjoying the

view of the water.

The main living area was open and inviting with tall ceilings, a fireplace, plenty of comfortable

seating and an open kitchen. The deck outside had a wonderful view and a great breeze.

We enjoyed our coffee in the morning and wine in the evening there.

We would highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return next season.

Beach vacation 2012

My husband and I had never stayed at a beach house before and our expectations were not disappointed. Previously we would stay at a hotel where parking would be at a premium and then we would be subjected to the noises of other guests. The stay at Ruffian's Roost afforded us a pleasant, quiet retreat. The rooms were bright and cheery, as well as being clean and well furnished. The beach is a short walk so there was no need to re-park the car or take a bus, while the front porch area allowed us a view of the marina. A soft wind blew off the water that kept us cool, too. Besides visiting the beach we also enjoyed nearby miniature golf, and a zoo. A fresh market was a short drive away that allowed us to prepare our own seafood dinners, although there are also some great restaurants nearby as well. We were thrilled to sit out on the front deck area to watch fireworks after dark and then the stars as the evening progressed. I would recommend staying here as our overall experience was excellent.
