About Robert Daniels (

My wife and I love to travel. We have been all over the United States and beyond and still say we love North Carolina best. We live in Raleigh and have enjoyed our trips to Wilmington and the beaches. We have always wanted a place to get away from the daily grind and just unwind. We believe we have found that place in Carolina Beach at Georgia on My Mind. We look forward to spending lots of time outdoors exploring the beaches and private islands we can access by our boat or kayaks. Walking the beaches, looking for shells, and riding our bikes into town for lunch and donuts is a great treat for us. We have made a great effort to furnish the home with all the comforts you would enjoy. We want you to be able to enjoy spending time inside the home playing games and relaxing as much as the times you spend at the beach just like we do. We look forward to providing you a wonderful experience and many memories at our beach home.

Robert Daniels ( purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Robert Daniels ( chose Southern Coast

We looked at many beach properties online while searching for our home and found most were mainly designed to be solely for rental income. We wanted a place that we would enjoy coming to as a family and would be as comfortable as our every day home. As soon as we pulled into the driveway we knew this house was not your typical beach rental. The trees and bushes engulf the property, giving it a private secluded feel. We knew this would allow for plenty of shade and a reduced temperature while lounging outside under the home or in the yard. Under the home allows for plenty of outdoor living with chairs and table for dining and a grill to cook your daily catch.

The inside has been completely remodeled in the past few years. It is one of the cleanest and best decorated homes on the island. We saw so much potential in this property not only as a place for guests to stay, but for us to have as a comfortable place to enjoy. We did not want to be near all the traffic and loud activity all day and night so we realized this location gave us the peacefulness of being in a quiet end of the island neighborhood while being very close to the ocean and the sound.

What makes this cottage unique

You have the opportunity to have guests stay in a separate room with an attached bathroom and private enclosed outside shower underneath the home. For those that want to be part of the vacation but want a little more separation, this is ideal. The kids will love the play shed and playground equipment. The concrete pad under the home allows for game play and scooters and tricycles while still being inside the fenced in yard. The driveway allows for plenty of parking in the drive and on the street. Bring your boat and park it here or at the marina two minutes away. There are two boat ramps on the island all within 10 minutes. If you don't want to walk to the beach or even the restaurant, you can try our golf cart for easy access and legal use on the roads.

This home is truly one of a kind in terms of location and amenities. We hope you will fall in love like we did!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful cottage to spend the weekend with my husband. The place is so inviting and relaxing. Everything is in good condition and just as the pictures show.

Very well appointed and decorated. Lost of room under the house to spread out and enjoy. Fenced in yard is great for the kids and the play area is great

The use of the golf cart made the short ride to the beach a breeze.

We will be back again first chance we get.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Love the seclusion of the sitting areas even with neighbors around. Very clean and well maintained. The Bed and Bath down was perfect for Kids to be away from the adults. All in all a great weekend for a fast getaway. Owner communication was quick and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place at the beach. Thanks Bob for a good family getaway.

Lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

I began looking for a beach house to rent after our daughter told us that she and her fiance' were planning to get married on the beach at Carolina Beach. When I came upon this house on the internet, I really liked the looks of this house. I wanted a place where a few of the guests would be able to stay with us and we would be in close proximity to where the wedding party were staying, as well as being close to where the wedding ceremony was to be held. I could not have asked for a more perfect place. This is a lovely home and as It turned out, it was just 1 block away from where the wedding party were. The house was very accommodating and everyone that stayed with us really loved it. The only thing that we could have asked for, was for more time that wasn't so hectic to be able to relax and enjoy our time together. I have already had a request for us to take another (leisure) trip together and be able to stay in this beach house.

Restful and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The property was the right one for us. It was on a street with minimal traffic and was extremely quiet during the day and night. We had easy/quick access to the sound and the ocean. The property included a playset and play house for my kids to enjoy while we were at the house, which was very helpful. My family and I had alot of fun.

Accomodating and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

We have using VRBO for over 10 years and this house was by far one of the nicest ones that we have stayed at. The house was centrally located with an easy walk to the beach and the owner also has a golf cart available to use as well. The house is well equipped, spacious and clean. The owners were quick to respond to all communication in a timely manner and were very easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed are stay and were able to celebrate our grandson's first birthday there!! He enjoyed the ocean, the sand, the fireworks and the ferry ride over to Southport. We have a very enjoyable vacation.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this house this past June. It has the perfect set up for families with children. My kids enjoyed the outside area, and spent most all of the week on the patio or in the playhouse.

Plenty of toys, games, and things to do inside even if you get rained out.

Beds were vey comfortable and there was plenty of storage in each room to keep luggage and things. Kitchen is well equipped and we cooked almost every evening.

Only downside is the distance from the ocean was a difficult walk with beach equipment so we were glad that the golf cart was provided!

Overall, this place was a great house to stay in for the week and it was perfect for my family to spend time together.

Would love to stay here again in the future!
