Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Polly and Darryl. We wanted to thank you for allowing our family to stay in your gorgeous beach home. Our vacation was wonderful and we had the chance to create some amazing family memories! Perhaps the most memorable experience was getting the opportunity to witness the "just hatched" sea turtles find their way into the ocean. It was so exciting to see all of them make it to the water! We were lucky that this beautiful moment took place just a few steps from your home! The children are still talking about the turtles...our middle son, Benny, even chose a book about sea turtles this week at the library. Again, thank you so much for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: Every time our family rented a beach house we dreaded gathering... and then lugging all the extra "stuff " we had to take with us, in addition to our clothing (of which you don't need much- washer and dryer on second floor in the "bunk room"). Therefore, we have included those types of items for our guests, if they care to use them; beach chairs, sand toys, sheets and towels, bath mats, bar soap and soft soap, laundry and dishwasher detergent, charcoal, toilet paper and paper towels ( enough to get you started), sponge, dish towels, spices, etc. We ask our guests to replenish what they empty so that it is available for future guests. So far this has worked out quite well.! We have wonderful, courteous guests!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the beach being so close! House was clean and comfortable. If I could change anything it would be a bathroom downstairs but it's a small price to pay for such a lovely property. Polly was great to work with,

The Sand Dollar - Carolina Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Carolina Beach and stayed at the Sand Dollar. The house was clean and very comfortable. The king beds were very comfortable. This house is very well suited for two couples with 4-6 little kids as two of the three rooms have king beds and a twin bed or twin pullout sofa bed. The 3rd bedroom is tight for teenagers but perfect for 4 boys from ages 3-10. I thought that it was awesome that the house was stocked with starter supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, dish and laundry soap. Polly has many excellent beach chairs so don't bother packing any. You won't be disappointed. The linens and towels were also an excellent convenience. But if you like to checkout at the crack of dawn, bring your own sheets and towels so that you don't have to do laundry before you leave. The house is situated one house behind the ocean front house but you can see the ocean from the left side of the deck. When you walk off the deck, the public deck (no stairs thank you) was only a few steps away. You're in walking distance to the Pier and bike riding distance to the boardwalk and carnival rides. The outdoor shower was fully stocked with body wash and shampoo. The WiFi was also another convenience if you have to stay connected to work. Polly has great customer service. If you have a question, just text and you always get a quick response. I will definitely return to the Sand Dollar. It was a great find. Customer for life. Thank you Polly for your gracious hospitality.

Family & Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

First time to rent a beach home for 6 adults and 3 little ones and this was perfect. A little nervous renting a house we had not seen in person, but the house was everything we could ask for. Polly was perfect in every way by being prompt in communicating with us, answering all questions and very nice. The beach was less than 100 steps away from house and was not overly crowded even during Memorial Day weekend. My family is already requesting a return visit in 2016! Thank you Polly and Darryl!

Nice spot at Carolina Beach

  • 5 of 5

The home is as described, with views of the beach and plenty of room. A highlight for us was the large upper deck - perfect for morning coffee. The owners are nice, responsive and quickly gave us all the information we needed. We would definitely stay again.
