About the property

This is the upstairs portion of a top/bottom duplex. It features a huge deck and a short walk to the ocean. This unit features a fully stocked kitchen, strong WIFI, and a very quiet neighborhood.

Come enjoy the quiet family-oriented beaches of Surf City. We are on a very quiet stretch of the beach, but only about a mile from "downtown" Surf City - with plenty of restaurants and places to enjoy shopping, etc...

Good location, needs better ameneties

  • 3 of 5

Cute little place that was easy to find and an easy walk to a great part of the beach that wasn't too crowded. Would have appreciated a few more of the basics being provided, such as trash bags, dishwasher soap, toilet paper, and sheets. Also, there was an overwhelming bleach smell when we first arrived. Great testament to the cleanliness of the place but definitely needed to open up windows and doors to air out the odor. Would recommend to the owner trimming back the weeds that are growing into the outdoor shower and changing the lamps. The palm leaves kept poking me every time I tried to turn the lamps on/off. Pretty, but impractical.

The place was nice and fit what we needed but the furniture needs to be professionally cleaned asap

The location was great! Easy walk to the beach, the area felt safe enough to let my kids walk back and forth to the beach. My only issue was with the cleanliness of the furniture other than that we would consider going back.

This is a great place. It is close to the beach , very quiet, and close to shopping, restaurants, etc. If you enjoy biking, there are plenty of quiet side streets to explore.

Love the big deck! Nice beach house location, short walk to a quiet beach

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the duplex was clean- we observed that the bathrooms, kitchen and tile floors had been cleaned but the carpets had multiple stains and couches were outdated and needed to be cleaned. The A/C in queen bedroom did not work but other AC units worked well. The owner came within a few days to replace AC unit and replaced light bulbs as well. He also allowed us to purchase a new area rug and floor lamps for the duplex as well. He said the carpet was going to be replaced in the near future. Our stay at the duplex was nicer than accomodations offered at a motel but the house needed minor repairs, to be refurnished with new couches and needs landscaping work. The price for our stay at the duplex was reasonable and I would stay there again. I loved being able to bring our pets and take them walking on the beach!

Location cant be beat!

  • 3 of 5

The location is great and the deck is very nice, however, the place could use a good cleaning and the bedroom rugs need to be thrown out. I would rate overall 3.5 stars. I also would stay there again as the location is prime.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, and we are sorry about the poor condition of the carpets and rugs. After you left, We did replace the carpet in the unit and gave the unit a thorough spring cleaning. I hope you will be back to check out the new look!

The house had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the idea the house was 2 blocks from ocean.

That the house was fully loaded.

Enjoyed the stay and having a cozy place to rest.

Thank you
