Guestbook comments from the owner

If I could bottle the entire week I would. From watching a beautiful sunset to waking up on the deck outside the master bedroom it couldn't have been better. The kids loved the pool and I liked being able to enjoy watching them and the ocean at the same time. Location couldn't be more convenient. I would highly recommend Dune Boys and would definitely return.

Brian and Shannon are the nicest people to work with and so accommodating. Me and my family stayed at Dune boys for a week and had a wonderful time! Amazing view of the ocean and also enjoyed the pool . The place was very clean and plenty of room for everyone And it was great to be able to have my dogs there they really enjoyed it as well :-) would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an amazing view and a relaxing time at the beach!

We love Dune Boys! This was our third year here and totally look forward to our two weeks every summer. Our grandchildren will have memories to last them a lifetime and we hope to continue this for many years to come. We love the pool and so do our grandchildren.

My daughter, son-in-law, son and family shared the best time at Dune Boys. The children loved the beautiful pool and the beach was only a few steps from our back door. Shannon and Brian with Angelfish were so great and easy to work with from reservation to check out. Fantastic house to relax and enjoy the beach.

Dune Boys West was a fantastic spring break for my family and I. We wanted to escape the DC metro area and head to the beach. The staff at angel fish were excellent and the beach home was immaculate. We spent a week in the house and it felt like home. We are coming back and will remain vacationing with angel fish!!

Four years straight! Two weeks every Spring and Fall! We love our Dune Boys and the coast of NC!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, for four years straight, my husband and I have traveled to the NC coast to stay for two weeks in both the spring and fall and I honestly cannot imagine spending it anywhere else but Dune Boys West. I love and so appreciate all of the upgrades Shannon has made throughout the years, the pool, the granite countertops, the updated décor, and this year, the new dog gates on the back deck!

Dune Boys is so comfortable for me, my husband, and our two dogs. The home sits directly oceanfront and we love being able to watch the dolphins in the water and watch the families and fishermen enjoy the beach! We have always stayed on the West side and have met some very nice families as they vacationed on the East side. Brian and Shannon are such a pleasure to work with; once or twice, there has been a small maintenance issue, and they have been so attentive to having the repairs made as quickly as possible.

The area has very nice restaurants. We enjoy the fresh seafood at Captain Willis, we enjoy lunch at Village Market and Chowdaheads, dinner is great at RuckerJohns (try their hot bacon/honey mustard dressing!), and the burgers are really great at Circle Pizza. I also recommend The Sanitary Restaurant in Morehead City. This cottage is very close to Camp Lejeune. We enjoy coming to the beach to relax and read our books, and this home is just perfect for us. Hope to see you in March/October 2016 on the East side!
