Perfect spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were first time renters and a bit nervous about getting the right house for our family vacation but we were very excited when we arrived. The house was exactly as pictured and in a great location for access to the beach. We had 6 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone. House comes with everything you need. Minnie was great to work with and she responded very quickly to all of my questions before we went. I can see a return trip in the future. Thanks Minnie for making our vacation so nice!

Family vacation spot

This house was exactly what we wanted for our family vacation! It has been recently renovated so is very clean and the beds are very comfortable. It had everything we needed for the week! We will definitely stay again!

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this home. It was exactly as the description stated and exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at other places that appear large-but it was just very good photography. No surprises here and Minnie was very accommodating. The pictures show it all! Thank you Minnie!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We have used this site for several family vacations from coast to coast. Ms. Minnie provides a wonderful home on the beach with everything you need - a true (HOME AWAY FROM HOME) Very clean and neat with all you need. She makes the process effortless and will work with your vacation dates. Owner has a wealth of knowledge about the area, where to eat, fish, play etc. Ms Minnie Thank You for your home. We highly recommend this home to other families and when we return to the area will look at re-renting. The community was quiet and accommodations comfortable. A very relaxing area. Beach chairs are provided to enjoy the Carolina sunrises.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

I really love this rental house. Plenty of space. Lots of nice updates. Really close to a beach access. Big fan of the nice enclosed outdoor shower. Comes in handy when you have a toddler who enjoys rolling around in the sand.
