About Herb and Betty Smith

We are a retired couple that live in Greensboro, NC. We, and our family enjoy the atmosphere of the beach and ocean, and we go to the beach as frequently as possible.

Herb and Betty Smith purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Herb and Betty Smith chose Southern Coast

We also own the adjacent cottage, 9 Duneside, which we purchase in 1997. The previous owner's family built 7 Duneside in 1974 We had the opportunity to buy it and we did. It is an ideal location to the beach. The previous owner had regular customers that rented the place, so we decided to continue the practice..

What makes this cottage unique

The layout of 7 Duneside is ideal for a family to occupy. The bedrooms allow comfortably for 6 wit the futon in the living for two more. The downstairs apartment allows for an additional three people, preferably younger people. The living space and kitchen upstairs allows for comfortable informal atmosphere.

The beach is just four houses away. The outdoor shower allows for washing off sand from the beach and bathing before going into the cottage.Access to the property by auto is straight forward.

Not as described & needs serious updates

  • 1 of 5

First to know.....The room with bunk bed (which I assumed was for children) is on the lower level. Not a big deal until you realize there is no access to the main house without going outside. It was also damp, smelled of mildew and had no smoke detector.

Actually there were no smoke detectors in the whole house. Called the home owner & his reply was "oh ya that was taken down & hasn't been put back up"..... VRBO needs a way to govern the homes it rents and they also need a way to verify homes are safe and accurately described. If we would have seen the place first, we would have never rented it.

A terrific house and location!

We had a wonderful vacation in this lovely, comfortable, well equipped house. The beach access was perfect, just a short walk. The neighborhood was quiet with nice homes. We had a great week and highly recommend 7 Duneside!

Comfortable with character

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely rent this home again. My family enjoyed every minute of our stay in your home. We found it very clean and plenty of room for all of us with all the amenities listed. We found the beds were soft and comfortable for sleeping. Loved the covered deck and swing out back as well as the front deck with rocking chairs to watch the sunrises. We were please with the close beach access and the quietness in the neighborhood. I spoke with the owners prior to and during our stay and found them very nice and accommodating. Excellent choice for our vacation!

Wonderful Property Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

The Smiths' home was great for our family and they were very quick to respond to any needs we had. The walk to the beach was less than 2-3 minutes and beach access was directly at the end of the street. The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of room and privacy for each of our families. There was ample parking for everyone to be able to drive which was important since each of our children drove separate to meet us. We enjoyed walking to the "town" area for live music, dinner and some late night entertainment. We will definitely stay there again!
