About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

One row back from the ocean is a wonderful house we call 'Tan, Ready and Rested' where you can watch the ocean waves and enjoy the cool breezes from the swing or the rockers on the front porch at this classic Carolina Beach cottage.

This cottage features an open kitchen/living room combo, two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with two twins), one and a half bathrooms and a washer/dryer. There is an outside shower with hot and cold water so you can refresh yourself after a long day at the beach. There is parking for four cars under the house with additional parking available in the driveway.

This recently renovated house is centrally located in Carolina Beach so when you are not relaxing on the beach you can walk to the lake and enjoy paddle boats or one of the many special events that the town provides, walk down the beach to a restaurant or to the board walk, or drive to the local Aquarium. The house is located in between two public beach accesses.

Best Little Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I believe this is our family's 7th year vacationing here and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! It's a clean, comfortable, and well kept beach cottage in a fantastic location. Much to do and see within walking distance. For those a little more adventurous, I recommend taking the ferry to South Port and then to Bald Head Island and Explore! I already miss those cool summer nights on the porch swing... Until next year.

Great Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times. The cottage is neat and clean. James is the best owner to work with. He goes out of his way to make sure you are happy with your vacation. Very Kind!! The porch is wonderful to watch the fireworks. The location is ideal. You are within walking distance to the lake and the boardwalk. You will not be disappointed!

Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, I highly recommend this place. With 2 small girls, this place was very convenient with a block or so walk to the beach access, with weekend lifeguard duty. It was just enough distance from the main strip so it wasn't as crowded as on down or up beach. We walked to restaurants and the carnival and didn't really have to drive anywhere. Wonderful fresh veggie market across the street, along with Scotchmen and other places to eat. I loved the distance to the green way, allowing a quick jot to a half or so mile track around a large pond, of which also has movies and other activities through out the summer. The house was clean, cute and just the right size for a family of 4. Nice porches, was able to get a good view of the ocean from the swing, and it looked right out to were the historical ship wreck can be seen at low tide-Really Cool!

What a wonderful place to stay in Carolina Beach. The view from the porch was amazing and the home was so cozy and relaxing. I really liked the flow of the bedrooms and the bath. I would for sure recommend this place and will come back soon. Thanks so much!

Great Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just spent over a week at Tan, Ready, and Rested for our anniversary. We stay in this area every year and we were happy to try this cottage. We really enjoyed this property. One of the best porches on the street. We could see the fireworks from there. The bed was comfortable, and the place was clean.

We had a small kitchen sink issue I called James he had it fixed while we stayed on the beach.

He was very thoughtful about it. Nice to rent from people that care. Cant go wrong with this location.

Thanks again James.
