There is something magical about crossing the Surf City Swing Bridge. Suddenly, all of your worries are simply left behind….It's time to relax, unwind and enjoy one of the most scenic and least populated beaches along coastal North Carolina. It's "Island Time" now….
The "Sea Glass Cottage" is located on a lovely residential street with beach access just in front of the cottage. It's the perfect location to take a walk, go for a bike ride or just head for the beach! The cottage is conveniently located within walking distance of some great restaurants, shopping, beach bike rentals, surf board rentals and only four blocks from the Surf City Pier.
Upon entering, our guests will be delighted with the decor reflecting the tranquil colors of "sea glass" throughout. This custom designed and professionally decorated cottage is welcoming from the minute you enter. You will find new furnishings and decor through out.
We encourage your participation in naming our fish in the stair well. We will select at random a name provided by guests at the end of the season and the selected guest will receive a $200.00 credit toward their next stay with us.

Perfect location, wonderful house!!
We had a great week. The house is adorably decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need and all appliances are new and work great. It is incredibly close to the beach and we loved being able to easily walk back and forth. It was basically like being oceanfront. The outdoor shower is not mentioned in the description but it's great and very private. The kids loved showering out there and coming in all clean from the beach. Our car couldn't fit in the garage because we had a carrier on top but we loved being able to keep our beach chairs/toys/cart safe and free from rain in the garage. The lift for luggage and groceries was super helpful because there are a lot of steps (34!) from the entrance to the kitchen/master bedroom. It was a little bit of a workout every time we forgot something from upstairs when we were headed out but we didn't mind! The house being so tall gave us great views and it was so nice that the 5 or so houses in front of the house are lower so you can see the ocean from the top 2 floors and even the sand from the top floor. The house is in the perfect location right in Surf City and you can walk to many restaurants, donuts, ice cream, shops, and even the grocery store on the island. We also liked being so close to the pier, the kids loved watching people catch fish. The Wal-Mart and Food Lion are just a few minutes away on the other side of the bridge. We really had a great time, thank you for sharing your home with us. I always rely on reviews to help get a feel of beach homes so hopefully others find this helpful! No complaints!!
Thank you for such a nice review of our property. Each year we do a few upgrades to make our guests comfortable. We realize this is a vacation for our guests and will continue to do our best to make their vacation something special.
We hope you will return again soon.
