About Jennifer Cox

Our family lives in Chapel Hill, the White House has provided some of our best memories through the decades. Our children all love their time at Carolina Beach.

Jennifer Cox purchased this cottage in 1977

Why Jennifer Cox chose Wilmington Beach

The White House was owned by my Grandparents and summers spent on the beach are treasured memories.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is steps away from the beach and has wonderful ocean views. The front porch is everyones favorite place to be. Wilmington is an easy 20 minute drive away.

This property had it all! Across from beach, outdoor shower, and plenty of space to gather.

  • 5 of 5

The beds were comfortable and rooms gave everyone space for quiet solitude. Great experience for 2--96 year olds!

Excellent Location. Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation home! The location is fantastic. Right on the strip, across the street from the public beach access. 4 miles from Fort Fisher and the Aquarium and right down the road from Carolina State Park. We are a group of dog trainers that came down to train and wanted to make a vacation out of it as well. We had 7 adults and 4 kids ranging from 2 to 15 years old, plus our 6 German Shepherds. The house has a fenced in yard for the dogs, and a dog friendly beach (Fort Fisher) only a few miles away. Plenty of room for parking. The outside shower was perfect for dogs and people alike. We enjoyed hanging out on the furnished porch in the evenings. Rode bikes, hiked at the park. Trained dogs in the large front yard. Spent plenty of beach time. When I contacted the owner about our special situation I expected some hesitation or even a quick no, as that had been the response so far. But, as a fellow dog lover and fan of our breed she welcomed us enthusiastically and said she would have no problem having us as guests! We were thrilled. The house had everything we needed, is well kept and maintained. I would give this place 10 stars if I could. Thank you for allowing us to stay. We will be back!!

Very comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and 4 teenagers had plenty of room in this house. The downstairs is set up with two bedrooms and a bath on two different hallways, so with the master upstairs, 3 families could easily stay here and still maintain some privacy. The furniture is very comfortable, the included extras are great, and the ocean view from the porch is fantastic. We didn't take our dogs, but the back yard has a sturdy fence that would contain even the most determined beastie. The ONLY reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is the downstairs showers. They really need work - however, the outside shower is wonderful - that's what the kids preferred to use. Jennifer was very nice, and this is obviously a cozy family home and not just a cold rental. Would definitely stay again.

house is roomy, clean, and inviting. My family had a great time. We enjoyed the ocean veiw from the front porch. The beach access directly across the street made getting the family to the beach so much easier.

Great house! Great location! Great BEACH!

  • 5 of 5

A group of my wife's college friends and us hubbies wanted to get together for a week at the beach. This is like 10 adults and 7 kids. not an easy task to please everyone. "I want a great porch with a view of the beach and ocean," "I want to be able to walk to stores and restaurants," "I want a big yard for kids to run around," I want a good kitchen to cook in," "I want a SHORT walk to the beach." We also needed to be close to Wrightsville/Wilmington for the folks flying in. Somehow, I was put in charge of finding the place. I went in knowing I couldn't please everyone. then I found this place on VRBO - bingo! I realize you can't know if a place will work or not until you get there, but by the description, it had all we were asking for. When we got there, it did not disappoint. It is so comfortable with lots of space downstairs and a nice upstairs master. The common room is big enough for a large group. But we spent most of the time on the front porch and in the yard. Not many beach places have a great yard - this place must sit on 2 to 2.5 lots. Plenty of parking! We could watch the kids in the evening sipping on adult beverages and enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Wish I was on that porch now! Highly recommend this place. just make sure you take the short bike/car ride to Britt's donuts!

New Years at the White House.

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at the White House with 2 families (4 adults and 5 kids) and our dogs over New Years. The accommodations were lovely. We even had PLENTY of room- and enough for more to join us next year!! The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The beach access is directly across the street which was perfect for walks to the Pier. We enjoyed walks to local restaurants (Granny's- delicious for breakfast) and the Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar for dinner. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. We will definitely be back this summer!!! Thanks so much for letting us rent your home.
