Recent Surf City reviews

  • Lovely stay!

    "We are just back from seven nights at this property and had a wonderful trip. The property is in a great location--it is just a walk along the beach from Surf City Pier, a short walk from a great coffee/donut shop (The Daily Grind) and also close the a top-rated NC spa (Inis Spa). We loved the ability to take advantage of local attractions without having to load up in the car. A highlight for my kids was the Surf City Fire Department, just across the street a bit from the house. My sons (4 and 3) loved seeing the fire trucks, and on one morning one of the men from the fire department saw us walk by and was nice enough to come out and approach us with firefighter hats for the kids. They also loved Soundside Park (though we did have to drive to that one). The beach here is great. Very clean and well-patrolled--we saw town workers on the beach each day, regularly emptying public trash receptacles and patrolling. We found the residents of the area to be very friendly, often saying hello or chatting with our kids on the way by. From the top level of the home the ocean views are almost surreal. We loved watching the ocean from the kitchen/dining room/living room. On our first morning we were sitting down for breakfast and quickly noticed dolphins out in the water--we were fortunate enough to see them several more times as well! We also saw a few large groups of pelicans and the kids loved watching them dive in and out of the water. The house itself is spacious and allows for both privacy and togetherness. The kitchen is well-equipped and made cooking for our group a breeze. The stand alone ice maker is a great addition to the kitchen. We also appreciated the washer and dryer very much. The only (very minor) nuisance for us was some splinters walking on and off the beach--the stairs are a little weathered, so make sure you bring flip flops to wear as you walk to and from the beach. Overall we were very happy with our stay here and all agreed we would love to re-visit Paradise Revisited!"

  • Fun times

    "I have booked Allison Wonderland three times and will definitely use it again and again. The layout is perfect for my family. The cottage was clean and the views were awesome! Sitting on the deck in the mornings and late afternoons were the best! I would have liked to have had a little better mattress but it wasn't too bad. Everyone else was comfortable so maybe it was just me. Our family loves this place and had a very blessed trip full of fun memories! Thanks to the owner of this cottage for opening it up for families to enjoy!"

  • We had an amazing time, Ted and Deb couldn't have been better to work with!! Beautiful high quality!

    "It is beautiful and the property is top scale, from the beds, comfortable and beautiful living room furniture to even the high quality deck chairs. I have never slept on more comfortable beds. Ted and Deb were so accommodating, they went way out of their way to answer questions and offer extras to make our stay perfect in every way. I tried to have side trip suggestions in case some of our group got bored and Ted kept telling me that he really didn't think we would want to leave the island, and he was exactly right! I kept throwing out suggestions and everyone would look at me and say 'Mom, I don't think anyone is interested, we just want to stay here'. Everyone kept asking [and still are] how soon we can go back! Thank you Ted and Deb!"

  • Andy

    "Members of my family have rented from the owner of this property for years, and have ALWAYS been happy with their quick response time and genuine concern. This was the very first time that any of us rented the house "Slowdance", but I will DEFINITELY go back! We love their condo on the north end of Topsai,and IT is wonderful...but THIS property was a great surprise! 5 bedrooms...plenty of space throughout...great central location on the island...and the Master suite is to DIE for!( Not to mention the Jacquzzi tub!) I guarantee you will not be dissatisfied!!"
