Beautiful, Private And Quiet Yet Right In The Middle Of All The Action!

Bedrooms 1
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 (adjacent 2/br unit available too)

This is one of two vacation rentals on the property. The other unit is a two bedroom (VRBO #557429). The units can be rented separately or together to sleep 12.

This one bedroom cottage has a large private bedroom with a king bed and a seating area as well as a private exit to the patio. Captains bunks in the hallway sleep two (best for kids to teens) and a pull out couch allow this unit to sleep a total of six. It's perfect for families or a group of friends.

This is a private single story stand alone bungalow. So, no upstairs or downstairs neighbors or shared walls with other units!

This is our home away from home and is set up for peace, comfort and enjoyment. There is a full kitchen that is stocked with all the supplies you need for wonderful meals or a quick bite. Including a full size fridge, range, microwave, and dishwasher. The bath includes a deep soaking tub and shower. There is also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit for your use.

It is just a block and a half from the beach and the boardwalk so you are right in the middle of the action but as soon as you get back 'home' you will experience the peace and quiet of a private residence. The bungalow is surrounded by a variety of delightful outdoor space with plenty of sun or shade areas to relax. The front of the exterior has a small garden space and a large patio with seating. The side courtyard has a fenced area for pets and the back has a large beautiful in-ground pool with palms and a waterside. The pool is only shared with two other units. One unit is a two bedroom vacation rental and the other unit is a long term rental occupied by the property's caretakers.

About Rebecca Triplett

My name is Rebecca Triplett. I purchased this property and lived there with family for several years. Family obligations drew us back to our home state of Minnesota but we just could not part with this treasure. We made this unit into a weekly rental so we will have a place to stay when we visit and hopefully still pay the mortgage :-) It was a fixer upper to say the least when I bought it. We have made a ton of improvements and continue to make changes to make it a wonderful vacation for our guests.

Rebecca Triplett purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Rebecca Triplett chose Carolina Beach

I was looking for access to the beach and a pool but still wanted to have a quiet and private space. I did not like having to deal with the crowds, traffic noise and party atmosphere of the strip along the ocean but then I found this treasure! It is so close to the beach as well as all of the activities Carolina Beach has to offer. The house is right next to all the stuff you'll want to experience. Once you get to the bungalow you could just leave your car and walk to everything you would like to do. You can literally sit on the front patio and watch the Thursday night fireworks and smell the donuts cooking at Brits! The pool is as large or larger than some of the pools at the hotels in the area but virtually private. You will feel like you are in an oasis. I love to cook and have had some bad experience with rental properties saying they had a well stocked kitchen but did not. Don't worry about that here. I have made sure I have all the tools I need to have fun with my cooking hobby.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a one story unit. There are no stairs to get in, or once you get in. Trust me, this is a great feature! No hauling all your things up and down all those stairs! There is exterior space for children to play with a gate to separate that space from the pool. We are a pet friendly unit. We love pets!!! But to us that does not just mean that we allow pets. The unit is designed with flooring that allows for good clean up between rentals. It is mostly tile with a low pile carpet in the bedroom. This unit also has plenty of parking. Unlike many units that only allow one car, we have private parking for three vehicles and unlimited parking right next to the unit along the road.

It was a great stay at this awesome located house!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect! Great location and had everything we needed!! Already talking about booking in the warmer months to use that pool!! Definitely made my birthday getaway wonderful!! They are also super pet friendly even though I left my babies at home since it called for tons of rain! Food and water bowls and a small fenced in area for them!

Very cute & comfortable cottage with everything you need for a great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great stay. The cottage was well stocked and very comfortable and the property managers and owner were very gracious and available to handle any issue. The property is well set up for accommodating pets with a dog run on the side of the house.

Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cottage. It was clean, comfortable and spacious! My only regret was that it was too cold to take advantage of the beautiful pool. I hope to rent here again in the summer months! Thanks for a wonderful Thanksgiving stay!

Safety lights needed!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived late at night. I took the dogs around back (special area) to use the restroom before we retired for the evening. It is so dark in the back that when we rounded the corner my dog walked straight into the pool. Scared me to death! Had I not been out there he would have drown. I highly recommend lighting for safety purposes. We did have a great stay at this little cottage by the beach though. It is close to everything which was really nice.

Would recommend to others and stay there again.

Charming place, walking distance to the beach! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We visited in early November with perfect weather to enjoy the beach and walking to all the near by restaurants. (Perfect location!!) The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Great amount of space for my husband, infant, and dog. We didn’t use the pool because it was too cold ~ but I know this would be an awesome feature in the summer. Outdoor space is well maintained. We have put it on our list to return during beach season!
