Wonderful Christmas Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here. We sold our home very quickly in Raleigh and since growing up going to Atlantic Beach during the summers, we did not give it a second thought to spend our Christmas at the ocean. It was very quiet and peaceful which is exactly what we needed. Wendy, thank you so much for allowing us to bring our ailing dog. We have not seen her this "peppy" in a long time.

Wonderful Stay & Awesome Place For Families. Super responsive and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a better place to enjoy our family vacation this year at Atlantic Beach. The house was a perfect fit for our requirements. It was so great to walk out of the house, over the beautiful dunes via a private path and right onto a great beach. The house is just as described. Roomy, clean, comfortable and cozy. Wendy, the owner was amazing to work with and she was super responsive and helpful to all our questions. Although we never met Wendy in person, we felt we got to know her through her great communication. All was in order when we arrived. We enjoyed having dinner on the deck with a nice picnic table provided, walking and hanging out on the beach at anytime. The water was great, the beaches unbelievable clean and not busy at all. Our kids absolutely loved the stay. Plenty to keep everyone busy. We had six in our family and everyone raved about the stay including the young adults in our family.

There is an outdoor (not enclosed) shower for everyone to wash off sand from the beach, which was nice. Plenty of pots, pans and things like Keurig coffee machine, blender, toaster, etc. Appliances all worked (including the helpful dishwasher). Laundry was downstairs in a very neat and tidy basement. The home is air conditioned for the hot days/eves. The neighborhood was quite and we felt very safe for sure. Easy walk to the main Atlantic Beach if your looking to be at a beach with life guards for those that aren't great swimmers. The waves are great and the kids enjoyed surfing. Grocery stores close by. Good selection of restaurants in the area. Great aquarium close by and we also enjoyed taking the ferry out to Cape Lookout for swimming and collecting amazing shells. Well worth the trip. Also went to Beaufort one night for dinner and some shopping which was very enjoyable.

Overall we would highly recommend Wendy and her lovely home on the beach. We tend to set the bar high when it comes to vacation units and this was by far a great experience for us. We will definitely be back in the future for sure. A big thanks again to Wendy for being such a great owner to work with.

Owner's Response: This type of response is exactly what we strive to provide. We try to put ourselves in the position of the traveler. They are putting themselves in the hands of others, never having seen the home or the owner. This can be quite challenging. We always want our guests to leave feeling they made a good choice, and we can be trusted. Thank you for giving us this chance.

We love this house.

  • 5 of 5

We've rented here several summers, gathering with our children and grandchildren, and it never fails to be a wonderful experience. The location is perfect. The setting is a delight. It's not fancy, but who needs fancy at the beach? All the essentials are there, including the sun rising over the dunes and the ocean a few yards away. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

Owner's Response: This family has been staying at this house from the beginning, it is so wonderful having repeat guests. He is right, you see the sun rise to your left, and set to your right. We continue to make updates and improvements year after year. We are so proud of our housekeeping crew...what a job they do.

Down East Revisited

  • 5 of 5

My wife, children and I traveled to Atlantic Beach and Down East for the first 15 years of our married life. Our trip in July of 2017 allowed to take our grown children, their spouses and three grandchildren back to Atlantic Beach after a 12+ year hiatus. The trip was made complete by our stay at Wendy Rose's vacation home. The house itself served us well (7 adults, 3 children under 6) and any shortcomings were offset by the great location. Easy access to the bridge on and off the island, groceries, and the Idle Hour Bier Garden. The back porch with 5 rocking chairs and a full sized picnic table provided a respit from the sun and a great place to relax in the evening.

Owner's Response: So wonderful to hear from guests who are familiar with the area. We try doing a major renovation each year, and this year it was new bedding throughout the house. Thank you so much for choosing us, and we wish you a beautiful fall.
