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.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and very relaxing stay at the cottage. It was a close walk to the beach as advertised. We enjoyed a lot of time when it rained, on the porch. The beds were comfortable. The owner is easy to work with and the lady who watches the place is a hoot and very helpful.

Cozy place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed our visit to the beach and staying in this home/cottage. The beds were comfortable and for the first time in 20+ years I was able to get up without back pain! I loved it was so close to the beach. My only difficulty was all the stairs to get up to the front door. The lady who watches the place is a hoot! The owners are a pleasure to work with too.

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!
