About Dena Baysden

My wife, Wanda, and I have always enjoyed vacationing with our dogs in tow. We have traveled the greater part of the 50 states, so imagine our surprise when we rented a cozy oceanfront cottage only 1 hour from our house and fell in love with this oceanic oasis! Since obtaining the property, we have made several upgrades, all while maintaining the historic character of the property. My niece, Dena, will handle your reservation needs. We welcome you to experience the beauty, peace, laughter, and love that this house has harbored for us over the years.

Dena Baysden purchased this cottage in 2006

Love the cottage ON the beach! Awesome view! Watched the sunrise everyday. Home is very comfortable & family friendly. Our pup was on the beach everyday and everyone we met was very friendly. Love the slower pace and quiet beach. This home is truly next to heaven ❤️️

Absolutely perfect !

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this great place ! We stayed here on a girls weekend for my Mom's birthday and just loved it . Oceanfront is an understatement . The tide is literally at the bottom of the porch steps ! The home was so cozy and our favorite part was the awesome glassed in back porch where we spent every morning having coffee and watching dolphins 🐬. The shells on the beach were incredible and we found tons of sharks teeth each day . Just a fabulous place in every way 😀

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Next to Heaven is the best vacation rental I've ever had the pleasure of renting. The location and proximity to the beach is absolutely perfect. The views are heavenly. You never know what you might get when you have a pet friendly rental. I have really bad allergies and a very good sense of smell. The place was clean and had no odor whatsoever other than a few lightly fragranced air fresheners. The tile and carpet appeared to be very new and were both very clean. I brought my own sheets, blankets and pillows, but the quilts were very nice and appeared to be freshly laundered. The kitchen was bright and the appliances looked new. The entire house was nicely decorated with numerous beach themed items. There is one large bathroom and one that is quite small with a walk-in shower, but it suited my purpose. One of the best features of the house are the numerous decks and how they are enclosed. My dogs could run all around the decks without me having to fear that they would slip out of the gates. There was a welcome note when we arrived and some treats for my dogs, which I thought was a very nice touch. Dealing with Dena was a pleasure. She was very helpful and provided me with a lot of useful information. Reading all the wonderful reviews, you almost think that this place has got to be too good to be true, but believe me, it's true. We stayed at Next to Heaven for 10 days during the Thanksgiving holiday. Now a lot of businesses and restaurants are closed this time of year so there wasn't a lot to do around the island, but I didn't mind just enjoying that beautiful view from either the bedroom, the enclosed porch or the outside decks. The house had 3 tvs so there was no fighting over the remote. There were beach chairs available that we took out onto the beach on some of the warmer days. I absolutely fell in love with this vacation rental. The only issue, and it wasn't a problem for us, is that the driveway is sand. If I had drove my small car, I probably would have gotten stuck. But we brought the 4 wheel drive truck so it wasn't an issue. If you are looking for a cute, clean, pet friendly vacation rental with unbelievable views and super nice people to deal with, you've found your spot. I was sad to leave. Thank you Baysden family for sharing your beautiful piece of Heaven with us.

Heaven By The Sea!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation rental! Had an awesome week at this quaint, well decorated, clean cottage. If you want a private location and enjoy the sounds of the sea this is the place for you. Spent many hours walking on the beach collecting shark teeth and watching the porpoises. Visited the USS North Carolina in Wrightsville beach (only a half hour away) and loved visiting the turtle hospital. We couldn't bring our dogs on this trip but look forward to returning with them in the future. It is obvious that the owners are pet people and they are as welcome as the human guests. We did not have one complaint!
