  • Lovely week at beach

    "My family and I had a wonderful stay on Holden Beach. Each year we try a different coastal area looking for our forever vacation spot. We usually travel with 6-7 adults and 2 toddlers. Dockside Dreaming worked for our needs. Here are our Thoughts. PROS: The best part of DD is the location. It's right across the street from the beach (and the room my husband and I slept in had a small ocean view). We loved being on the canal. We fished and crabbed right from the dock. We also had a chance to chat with our neighbors. The walk to the beach was very doable with kids and it really was the best part. Another positive is dealing with the Youngs (the owners). They were very easy to deal with and so nice to rent from. The cost of the rental was very nice. We appreciated being able to be so close to the beach at a very affordable rate. Cons: The cons aren't a huge deal just some observations but they wouldn't prevent us from renting DD again. The house needs some TLC. As others have mentioned it shows its age. There is quite a bit of construction happening on the island so soon it be more obvious. But everything works technically so again not a reason to not rent. There's a weekly cleaning that happens but the house could use maybe a monthly deep clean. I have a hard time with dust and there was quite a bit in weird places like on the wicker beds (it's pretty thick by the end of July). I had to take allergy meds to help. The Youngs provide quite a bit (we were very happy with the Weber Grill since we have 2 at home) but the cabinets were FILLED with dishes, glasses and appliances. As a personal chef I tend to travel with my own seasonings, tools (including pots) and food and unfortunately there wasn't much space for us to put things away. So if you rent try to limit the stuff you bring for the kitchen. All in all Our week was nice. I liked it enough to want to return. One day when I have a boat 😀򐀠And dockside dreaming is a great value for the price. And I'm already thinking of next years vacation."

  • The "C" Shore

    "We just spent an amazing week at Ocean Isle, NC. We stayed in an oceanfront duplex called the "C" Shore. What a wonderful place to be. The Carpenter's were very gracious and helpful with our rental. My husband and I brought my mother-in-law, our daughter and our four grandchildren, ranging from six to fifteen. The kids absolutely loved it!! And there was plenty of room! This home is homey, beachy and relaxing! It is so well equipped....there was nothing that we needed that couldn't be found. I would definitely rent the "C" Shore again."

  • WOW !!!

    "We rented Cliff's place to be able to attend our nieces wedding one block away. The condo was everything and more than what we were told. A beautiful place, a beautiful area, view of the ocean was wonderful, and we loved watching the turtles in the pond. A bedroom door inadvertently was locked and Cliff immediately sent a locksmith to fix it. He was so responsive. We were 6 adults and 3 children and none of us wanted to leave. We will go back next year also. We didn't bring our dog this time but it was a perfect set up for your pet also. Thank you so much."
