About Melissa Cornett

We work full time demanding careers, but try to find time for a little leisure at our favorite beach.

Melissa Cornett purchased this condo in 2014

Why Melissa Cornett chose Southern Coast

My family has loved Carolina Beach for more than 70 years. My Grandfather started an annual family vacation to Carolina Beach back in the late 40's. What started out as his immediate family's vacation has turned into a family reunion of 30 plus that includes his children, their children, their children, siblings, Aunts, Uncles and cousins. Four generations have vacationed here, many in the same houses for years. Countless lifelong memories have been made here. Over the decades we have seen many changes to our beloved beach that we call our second home. We survived sweltering heat without air conditioning in the beach bungalows in the 60's. We loved the cozy cottages of the early 70's and the endless hours playing under the houses during the heat of the day. We were in awe of the massive construction in the early 80's when new condos were popping up every where. We watched in despair through the hard times of the late 80's and early 90's, when many boardwalk businesses closed. We rejoiced in the revitalization of the boardwalk during the first decade of the new millennium. But, still mourn the loss of our bumper cars and hearing Larry say; 'One way, no head on's'!! We miss the sounds coming from the multiple arcades that have now closed. There is no longer an elephant by the side of 421 to let you know you have almost arrived, no more water slides, no more Hermit, no more Carolina Beach pier, no more Bally Who, no more Wig and Wam, no more Golden Sands, out with the old..... Time marches on but one thing remains constant, my love for this special place! I hope that you will enjoy your stay and I hope Carolina Beach will find a home in your heart. Many happy returns!

What makes this condo unique

While here be sure to get a doughnut from Britt's on the boardwalk, icecream from Squiggley's, Seafood Chowder from Michael's. Enjoy the arcade and amusement rides at least one night at the boardwalk. Put a quarter in the jukebox and listen to your favorite song at the 'Silver Dollar'. Take the ferry to Southport, visit the aquarium and Ft. Fisher, see the Battleship, visit the Marina to see the catch of the day. Stop by the zoo on your way out of town. There are many things to love about Carolina Beach. Enjoy your stay!

Terrible Experience

  • 1 of 5

The condo is sub-par with extremely tiny quarters, cheap uncomfortable furniture and parking lot/gas station views. There are super loud restaurants right next door that have live music til very late at night. The pool is a tiny hole in the middle of the parking lot and was closed for repairs when we were there. The deadbolt was broken and we were nearly locked out of the property. The owner knew about this but had not bothered to fix it.

My biggest problem was that the lady advertised pet friendly so we brought our dog and followed her instructions to cover the furniture. The cover slipped off the edge of the couch and there were a couple surface level scratches in the arm of the couch. It was perhaps the cheapest couch I've ever seen - our dog lays on our couch every day at home and has never scratched it. Her housekeeper noticed the scratches and the owner texted me after we left asking to discuss the matter but said she was currently at work. I said "ok no problem" expecting to talk to her later and apologize and explain over the phone. Well she never called me and a few days went by. I then got an angry email from her telling me I was a "negligent" person who hadn't even bothered to follow her rules and that she was keeping the refundable security deposit on top of the pet fees we had already paid. I immediately texted her and asked if we could talk because we hadn't gotten to. She refused, stating "VRBO policy". Well I contacted VRBO and they said these things needed to worked out between customer and owner. She bever would return my email or a phone call. I'm extremely angry she wouldn't even talk to me regarding the matter. I'm pretty sure that chair did not even cost the $$$ she kept from us. Either she needs to NOT allow pets or buy better furniture that can withstand the traffic. She also needs to handle these situations with much more integrity. Upon checking out, she had asked us to start a load of towels in the laundry for the housekeeper because the housekeeper wouldn't have enough time that day to do everything herself. So we did, to be helpful. And then she still treated us so rudely.

With all the issues, this place is absolutely NOT worth the trouble of staying, pets or not. Seems like other people have had similar problems - if any kind of issue arises, Melissa does not handle it well.

Great condo, great location, great owner = great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fully equipped with washer/dryer and full kitchen. Melissa (the owner) has paid close attention to detail so we felt like we were home away from home. The décor is lovely throughout. The location is perfect! It is within walking distance to the oceanfront, boardwalk and restaurants. Melissa was very responsive. I would definitely rent this condo again!

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

I will start out by saying the place was nice and convenient to the boardwalk and our stay would have been great but it is advertised as having a pool and the pool has been closed since March and some of the owners in the building said it probably wouldn't open all summer due to the health dept. will not pass the inspection. The owner messaged me a week before we left to come on vacation (after she received my money for my stay) and she tells me they closed the pool temporarily for maintenance and she hopes they have it open by the time we arrive and I voiced my concerns to her and told her that we rent based on having a pool .. So make a long story short she told me that she was told it would open on Monday and we checked in on Saturday... We were ok with not having the pool the first 2 days ... Well those 2 days turned into our entire stay and middle of our stay is when my husband found out that she lied to us and the pool had been closed since March and wouldn't open probably all summer ... So I text her and told her my husband was very upset that she had lied to us and we feel she owes us some money back on our stay and she said she understood and she has yet to refund some money back and she want respond to me about it and she is still advertising this place as having a pool.
