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

Bedrooms 1
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 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 Southern Coast

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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage, this was our 2nd time staying. We brought our grandchildren this time and they enjoyed the pool. The house was very clean and the beds are comfortable. The caretakers Jeremy and Grace and their girls are so friendly. We love to bring our dogs and had a nice area to let them play. The outside and pool very clean and just nice area to relax.

Great beach cottage and pleasant stay!

  • 4 of 5

A nice little cottage, well appointed and clean with a spacious, open feel for a smaller home, especially with our pets. Nicely decorated. Good central yet quiet location and pretty much all you need except for linens, personal bath items and in our case, salt/pepper & a can opener. Our two older dogs settled in well and seemed quite happy but beach access w/dogs is restricted in summer mo. from 9am to 5pm--and it's awkward to bypass the town's boardwalk, which won't let you bring dogs on it at any time as I understood it. NOT the owner/caretaker's fault! Nice city street/area for K9 walks. Pool and shared common area is nice, clean and attractive. Knocked off one star due to main bed frame being a bit loose/tilted and (to us) a seemingly new but slippery shower/tub enclosure w no mat. Relatively minor issues we dealt with in an otherwise good stay and nice place.

Very nice place Peaceful and relaxing. :)

  • 5 of 5

Dancing Oaks was everything we hoped it would be. I want to thank the owner and caretakers for a place we could bring our beloved dogs to on our first vacation in over 10 years. The place was clean and well maintained. They even provided pet bowls for our girls. We were in walking distance for everything we needed. Also the street was very quiet and peaceful. A perfect place to take our girls for a long walk.

We will definitely be return vacationers to this wonderful place.

Thank you again for allowing us to share your home.

The Dancing Oaks was the perfect place for my husband and I to get away to unwind after a stressful few months, and we didn't want to leave our 2 beloved dogs behind. The Dancing Oaks is very clean, beautifully decorated, very quiet and private. When we arrived, we were so happy to find that the caretakers had made sure the cottage was comfortable for us, with the a/c on, and they were even thoughtful enough to leave water in the provided water bowls for our fur-babies! We were in walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, grocery store, and many wonderful restaurants. Even though we were so close to everything, the neighborhood was quiet, and the cottage had such a private feeling. We felt right at home with the kitchen having all the necessities, a comfy bed and couches, two televisions, a good supply of books to read, and free wifi. The outdoor spaces were very comfortable and inviting. The swimming pool was beautiful and well maintained, with a grill and fire pit right outside our door. There was a nice private fenced area for off-leash time for our dogs. The cottage was everything we wanted. We truly enjoyed our stress free, mini-vacation! Thank you so much to the owners and to the caretakers of The Dancing Oaks! We look forward to staying here again!!

Very enjoyable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were so close to the beach, restaurants, and bars that it was nearly impossible to not have a great time. It was very nice having the pool directly outside the back door - it made morning coffee a real pleasure! Also, check out pleasure island rentals for beach chairs and tours. Great week off - highly recommend everything.

If there is one thing to fault - the charcoal grill may need to be replaced but with so many great restaurants (Havanas, Surf House) within walking distance, this was not a real issue.

The caretakers were also very friendly and up every day cleaning the pool! Overall this is a great place to spend your time off!
