I almost don't want to write a review for Windy Point Cottage, because once the word is out on this place, it will be hard to book again! First of all, the cottage is family friendly - well appointed and clean, but definitely comfortable - and the many family photographs on the walls make you almost feel like you're at home too. And then there's the outside - with kayaks, a pier stretching into the Intracoastal waterway, fishing poles, a crab trap, even life jackets for the little ones, adirondack chairs, a fire pit, hammock, rope swings and friendly neighbors, there was something for everyone in our group of 8 to enjoy, and we ranged in age from almost 2 to 60. We could probably have spent the entire week at the cottage, but short car rides brought us to many beautiful local beaches - Holden Beach, Oak Island, and my personal favorite - Sunset Beach. This was our first visit to coastal North Carolina, and we left with many wonderful memories. It's hard to find a vacation spot that strikes a fine balance between relaxation and activity, but Windy Point Cottage is exactly that kind of place. Thank you to the owners for being such good hosts, and I hope we have a chance to visit again someday!
