Fantastic birthday!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent my birthday at A World Away and enjoyed every moment. The house was so inviting and comfortable. The location is fantastic.....the best on the island as far as we were concerned. Throughly enjoyed exploring the island in one of the two golf carts that were provided. Ate at MoJo's several times.....the food was delicious! In the evening we would sit on the deck and marvel at the gorgeous sunsets......and we loved watching the big ships that were coming and going from Wilmington. They were SO close you felt like you could just reach out and touch them. We enjoyed our time there so much that we extended our stay 4 days!

The owner, Sue, was delightful to deal with as was Brandy the manager. We are so looking forward to our next visit, in fact, I would go back yesterday!

Thank you Sue for sharing your wonderful home with us and we can't wait to return!

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a very private, yet easy to get to, place to "chill" out. My husband and I absolutely loved it! We'll be back !

A step back in time!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has absolutely everything you need to enjoy a restful summer vacation. It has privacy as well as a beautiful view of the ocean at all times. The house is well equipped to handle all of your needs. The landlord is very accommodating especially with golf carts etc. The island has a small but efficient market with plenty of fresh foods to choose from. The ocean in front of the cottage is a bit rough with rip tides but the south beach a short golf cart ride is awesome! We are definitely going back!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely home to stay in with your family. My husband and I recently stayed here with our three girls and had a blast. The weather was great...warm and sunny with no rain. 😊? We played on the beach, swam in the ocean, and collected seashells on the beach at the end of the driveway. It was so convenient! The sunsets from the porch every night were absolutely gorgeous! This inviting home is freshly painted and well decorated and stocked. We felt like we were at our home away from home....couldn't ask for more! Thanks so much!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Location to the beach couldn't be better. Everything we needed to spend the day on the beach was located in the garage. The top balcony has the best view of any house on the island.
