Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you!

We had a great stay - What a neat place and location!

We found that the 2nd floor bathtub drain is not working properly to open/close, but other than that everything was perfect!

Thanks again - Nicole

Great Long Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked the house through VRBO. Mr. Lindsay contacted me almost immediately. We had the details squared away before the end of that same day! We looked at other properties that were similar in price. We decided on this house because it was just outside of the busiest part of Carolina Beach. We were very happy with our decision once we arrived. The Lindsay's greeted us there and walked through everything with us the first day. The house is obviously nice (from the pictures), but we were very impressed by how clean it was. Our family had a wonderful vacation and we made some great memories with the children. The beach is literally a 2 minute walk and the Kure Beach pier is within walking distance. This was our first time renting a house instead of a hotel....and we were very, very pleased. We definitely got the R&R we needed and would highly recommend this house to all inquiring vacationers!

Charming Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. When they say all linens, etc are provided, they truly mean that. We did not need to bring anything! It was immaculate and very comfortable. The owners are very gracious as well. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The downstairs suite was perfect for my parents and has everything they needed- fridge, W/D, little kitchen and close to the beach!

Great home. Great Owners. Great property. Great beach access. Kid friendly beach (great sand bar directly in front of property during low tide). Plenty of room for five kids and myself. Beach views and sunrises from all three floors. Don't pass on this place, you'll kick yourself if you do. (Thank you Lindsays)

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a home that was just as described in the ad blurb. Clean as a whistle and everything there drop our luggage and go right to the beach! there are 3 floors with views from every floor. 2 stackable washer and dryers! and full kitchen equipped with everything, pots, pans dishwashing detergent etc. We traveled with our 3 teenage sons and my brother and there was plenty of room to spread out and have our own spaces if we wanted. Carolina Beach is just down the road and we went out a few evenings there and even chartered a boat for fishing. Ft. Fischer is also a great place to see and I recommend it, the beaches there are uncrowded and a great place to try your luck in finding shark teeth and lots of shells. Even though there were MULTIPLE shark sightings at Kure Beach we felt very safe with the life guards watching over everyone on the fairly uncrowded beaches. Donald and Audrey Lindsay were so nice and accommodating our early arrival allowing us to still park our cars there and explore the area. I am looking forward to our next trip to the beach!
