We are a Virginia couple with North Carolina roots. Ned and I met at Louisburg College and then he went to UT while I went to UNC. Even though we moved a lot, we always hoped to get back to North Carolina. We wanted to 'go home,' but really couldn't leave our jobs, so we chose a second home back in the 'Old North State.' Returning to the beach, which had been our playground growing up, has been a joy that we are happy to share with a few families who value a peaceful visit to a home away from home. Our children, grandchildren and friends often enjoy time with us. Dream Maker Cottage is our haven, and we invite you to enjoy this pristine property on soundside in Atlantic Beach and create your own family memories.

Marla Coleman purchased this cottage in 2005

For us, being at the cottage gives us an opportunity to really enjoy the soundside of the island while still having access to the gorgeous, wide North Carolina beaches. We take long walks in the early morning and then ride our beach bikes all over the community during the early evening hours. For some additional adventure, we ride the open-air trolley owned by our community. It is a fabulous addition to our fun. Food is always on our mind, and we are never disappointed in the many, many outstanding restaurants located within fifteen minutes of the cottage. Our children love the NC Aquarium and spend hours visiting or taking part in the outdoor adventure programs available everyday. Once in a while we will walk to the movie theatre or the wonderful restaurant nearby. A favorite is walking the boardwalk at Beaufort and marveling at the enormous yachts docked there. The more adventurous can rent a kayak and paddle over to see the wild horses on Shackleford Banks. There is a great deal to do in the area and none of it includes the routine or mundane. Because I am an artist, I am always finding beauty around every corner. However, perhaps our favorite exercise is swinging in our front porch swing, sipping a cool one. You just have to visit to understand why we keep coming back. You're always welcome at Dream Maker Cottage.

GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Several friends came to Atlantic Beach for the Atlantic Beach Shaggers Hall of Fame. The owner and the realty group did everything possible to make our stay an enjoyable one. We were in close proximity of the venue, grocery store and anywhere else we needed to be.

Owner's Response: I love anyone who loves to Shag! Your group was delightful to work with and congratulations on being inducted into the Shag Hall of Fame at Memories! We know you love to move!

In mid-NC, we learned the Shag but always called it "The Bop." Same dance, same music. Recently learned that the name was fairly localized to the Raleigh NC area. Thank you for your gracious comments and for taking the time to let us know.

Dreammaker Cottage is happy to have been a part of your dream. Marla

GREAT VACATION @ ATLANTIC BEACH

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an awesome time at the beach for our family reunion! The property was beautiful and most accomodating. We have a son w/ physical limitations so a home w/ an elevator was ideal to keep him involved w/ all the family activities. We love the convenience of the pool close by and the pathway for convenience to the nearby shopping center for grocery items. The beach, shops, Ft. Macon, the aquarium and other fun activities are all close.....so there is plenty of entertainment for everyone.
We would love to return for a visit in the near future, Thanks!!

Owner's Response: Janice, I was thrilled to see your comment and thank you for your kindness. We are so glad that the cottage met your son's needs and helped to make your vacation a success. I know it's tough to find the kind of housing you needed, and it's good to know our cottage worked. Thank you so very much to take the time to write this wonderful review. We are very grateful.

Please plan to come back often and soon. You get the preferred rate! Don't know what that is, but I am sure we can figure it out! Hugs and best wishes, Marla
