  • Awesome House! Great Family Gathering Spot!!

    "This place is fantastic. It has something for everyone as we loved the 3rd floor main room for gathering around the table, catching some college football, or playing some fun video games. All the decks are amazing and it is great to walk straight onto the beach from either level. It is like you have your own ocean and beach to yourself!!! Everything is provided for a great family beach vacation! Thanks Nadine!!!"

  • Our needs were more than met!

    "We were more than pleased with the accommodations at Merlin's Magic. I think I slept better than I ever have away from home (and that's a huge accomplishment for me). We loved the location, and I appreciated that the washer/dryer were inside the house. We stayed at another cottage on the island last year and those appliances were under the deck. Not fun in the rain. Merlin's place had everything we needed. We took things that we ended up not needing because there were so many supplies that we could've left ours at home -- paper towels, toilet tissue, detergent, and everything else. It was great to be able to SEE the ocean and hear it! I didn't find anything in disrepair. While it's true that new living room furniture would be nice, what's there is adequate. We have old-school TVs at home and no cable, so it was a treat to have it on vacation. We enjoyed the deck downstairs, and I enjoyed the one upstairs. I had no trouble with the bathroom off the kitchen and thought the shower head worked just fine -- plenty of pressure and it didn't scald me. The washer/dryer work efficiently and do a thorough job. My one suggestion: a couple of new stoppers for the bathroom sinks, just for rinsing out swimsuits. It would have helped me, anyway; no one else reading this review might care about that. I thought this was a superb find, all the way around. Communication from the owners was fast and friendly. I don't think we could have asked for more. We loved Max's Pizza, Sears Landing, and Patio Playground for food."

  • 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!"

  • Loved Mayberry by the Sea

    "My family and I can't express enough how much we enjoyed Mayberry by the Sea! We all had a marvelous time! Our fur baby also had the time of his life, it was his first time visiting the beach. The sand, sea, and all the new people and pups he met made for a very good time for him. The house is very comfortable, light, and airy! Feels like home away from home! I would recommend Mayberry by the Sea for any occasion! If you have pets this place is a rare find, the fenced in yard is perfect and very secure for your two and four legged children! Ray was a pleasure to work with, very prompt and attentive to our vacation needs! It was a short and pleasant walk to the beach, the view of the canal from the front and back porch was very nice too. You can't go wrong with Mayberry by the Sea! We thank you so much for allowing us the use of your lovely home, and for making our vacation such a pleasure! We definitely will return! The McLamb Family Angier, NC"
