About Margaret Mullins

Shawn and Margaret Mullins - Holly Springs, NC. Originally from NC my husband and I both spent time at North Carolina's beautiful beaches every summer. It has always been a dream of ours to own a home at the coast. In August of 2013 we purchased 400 Tennessee Ave. Now we enjoy time at our favorite beach with our three children, family and friends.

Margaret Mullins purchased this house in 2013

Beautiful home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Needed a rental for less than a full week in July, so my options were limited. But I was pleasantly surprised by this lovely home. Small, but well-laid out, and deck is a nice extension of the living space. Short walk to beach and getting up early to catch the sunrise is well worth it. Nice location near some great activities - Fort Fisher and NC Aquarium nearby, and USS North Carolina worth the drive to Wilmington. Owner is VERY responsive and pleasant to deal with, and my security deposit was refunded before my flight home landed.

Perfect, Immaculate, Upscale Vacation Home in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation here, staying 4 nights and three days, Wed-Sat after July 4th. The house was exactly as described, and well deserved of the high ratings other reviewers had given it. I can't emphasize enough how fresh and clean it was. The four bedrooms were spacious, with plenty of storage, a TV in each room, and very comfortable, thick mattresses and high quality bedding with tons of pillows. The full bath upstairs was large, and the full bath downstairs was big also. It was just my husband and two boys, ages 11 and 13, but we used all four bedrooms! The boys loved having their own room, and I used the 4th one for taking naps. :) The walk to the beach is barely 2 blocks; I think this is only the 9th house back from the beach. It was nice being so close, but we also preferred this location because it was just enough away from the main road. Houses in our area were mainly tri-level, and we were so grateful to be in a single family home. We spent mornings and evenings on the deck on the comfy deck furniture. The kitchen had everything we wanted or needed. We bought food at the nearby Food Lion grocery store and only ate out once per day. We brought our own linens, which worked out fine, mainly because of the excellent laundry facilities. The A/C was excellent and refreshing. It really felt like our very own house. Having just come from a hotel in Greensboro, we were so happy to be able to spread out, eat breakfast at the kitchen table, and feel cozy and homey. The owner was very easy to communicate with before and after our visit. (We didn't need anything during our visit.) Carolina Beach was never crowded, and we were able to walk along the beach to view the Thurs evening fireworks set off from the Carolina Beach boardwalk further down. This area is much less crowded than the boardwalk area is, and the house is in a quiet area. We went to Kure Beach as well, in the other direction, and I think that it is more crowded there also. This house is in the perfect spot in the middle. We went to the Aquarium one morning, and into Wilmington and toured the USS Carolina. The water was warm, and we had a blast. The "house rules" were much appreciated, because it is obvious that the owners maintain their property to the highest degree, and that their renters follow suit. We found it very relaxing to stay there, and would definitely rent there again, and would refer our family members from Greensboro to do the same.

Cozy beach house

  • 5 of 5

The house was cute and clean! While it is on the smaller side, we were very comfortable with 4 adults and 2 toddlers. The outdoor shower was perfect for cleaning the kids after the beach. Easy walk to the beach, and enjoyed sitting on the deck while the kids were sleeping. Also, the owner is very easy to work with, and answers any questions you may have very quickly.

Exactly as expected, owner is great to work with!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as shown on VRBO, and the owner was a joy to work with. There were no surprises for my group, and no complaints either. Yes, this is a smaller house. But the listing shows exactly what it is, and the great deck and outdoor showers make the house very functional. We had 8 adults and 2 children and NEVER felt crowded. The owner responds to all emails very QUICKLY and is up front and honest about everything. Stay here, you will not regret it.
