About Robert Daniels (carolinabeachrentalhouse.com)

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.

Why Robert Daniels (carolinabeachrentalhouse.com) chose Carolina Beach

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.

Perfect summer vacation for family of 6

  • 5 of 5

We came from New Mexico to meet with the rest of my family from Raleigh. The amenities were well-suited to our group, and we loved the casual elegance of the property. We cooked almost nightly, went to the beach during the day, rode bikes, and hung out in the up and downstairs. The house feels like a little hide-away in a peaceful setting. We hope to come back next summer!

Darling beach retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our family and another family stayed at Georgia on my Mind for a weekend soccer tournament. GOMM was delightful. Very well decorated, nicely appointed and very comfortable. The owner was very nice to work with - responsive and communicated all necessary information. There is a lovely outside area beneath the house with dining, hanging out, and kids' play space. Unfortunately, too cold for us in mid November, but can see this would be a great space for most times of the year in coastal Carolina.

The only reason for the 4 star review was the 4th bedroom. It may be my fault not realizing it was separate from the main house. It is located on the ground floor and has separate entrance. Oldest son decided not to come, so wasn't an issue for us ultimately, but could have been a problem had we had to put a child downstairs separate from everyone else.

Other than that, perfect house. Great owner. Lovely weekend.

We had a fantastic Thanksgiving at Georgia On My Mind! The owners have thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Georgia On My Mind! The house itself is beautifully decorated, the play set and playhouse were perfect for my younger nieces and nephew, and we all had so much fun riding around the neighborhood on the golf cart. This property is close enough to the pier and beach to enjoy fishing and beac combing, too. We will definitely be back - 5 stars!!!!

Great place to stay with family and friends

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable. It worked great for family and friends who were meeting us for our son’s wedding at the aquarium. A mix up happened with the cleaning person because they had not come to clean since the last stay. I had to wash all the towels and sheets and make the beds before I could relax. The owner did give us a $50 refund. Overall it was a great place to stay. Loved the porch and outside spaces.

Peaceful, kid-friendly, and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved the location and setting of the house. The layout is perfect to enjoy time with your family but also have space to relax. My three year old daughter loved the treehouse, toys, and playhouse. The beach was full of shells and provided hours of entertainment. It was a perfect trip.
