About Gaye Mashburn
Our beach home is owned by three sisters. Mrs. Mashburn, who is one of the owners, is a real estate agent and NC Broker with her family’s real estate company, Wellons Enterprises, Inc. The 3 sisters’ father, Calvin G. Wellons, and their mother, who is now 91, bought the beach house in 1987, so they could have a place for the whole family to gather and enjoy spending time together. The family of Calvin G. Wellons has grown immensely throughout the years. In addition to the four daughters, there are now 13 grandchildren (not including their spouses) and 14 great-grandchildren. Each year during the week of July 4th, the entire family gathers together to have fun and make lasting memories.

We could not have been more pleased with our recent stay! The cottage reminded us of bygone glorious summer vacations at Atlantic Beach. We could not have asked for a more perfect place to come together as a family to celebrate the life of my remarkable mother, whose memorial service was held in Morehead City over the weekend.
So glad that we were able to help you celebrate the life of your Mother. Thank you for renting from us.
Wonderful Oceanfront Vacation Experience
The Ocean Ridge neighborhood is one of the nicest in the Atlantic Beach area. The beach house is spacious and very well maintained. We have enjoyed the area for over 50 years. 20 years of that time, family members owned a beachfront home. The remaining years we have rented. For us, some homes have the right feel to them and this property is definitely one of them. The hard pine flooring and paneling in some of the rooms, the large ocean front windows, a spacious eating area and kitchen, multiple seating areas for relaxing, the modern bathrooms, large bedrooms, beautiful sand dunes and much more. And any questions or needs we had were attended to quickly and professionally. This property facilitated a wonderful relaxing time for our family. We highly recommend it.
Thank you. We are glad that you enjoyed your time at our beach cottage. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
Great Vacation House
My family enjoyed this home during our vacation. It is spacious and very clean. The management is easily accessible and quick to respond to any issues. Can’t wait to stay here again next summer!
Thank you for staying at the beach cottage. I am glad that we were able to meet your expectations and look forward to seeing you next year!
My family and I enjoyed the home. They had plenty of kitchen utensils that most other places don’t offer. Although the propane tank was empty and I planned on grilling out. Great property and I will definitely recommend this property for big families. The three patios were amazing!
Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry that there was no propane to grill with. We will strive to make sure that doesn't happen again.
Excellent location and service
The property is ideal for vacationing families, with direct views and access to the ocean, easy access and services close by. The management company is professional, and responsive.
Thank you. We are glad that you enjoyed our cottage. We hope to see you next year.
Holiday Weekekend family gathering
We had a wonderful time over the Labor Day weekend staying at this beach house. Beautiful neighborhood, plenty of parking, great location, warm water and lots of beach toys and chairs. We had a great time and there was plenty of room for everyone to hang out and not feel crowded. Large fridge and nice appliances, plenty of dished for big family dinners. We used the grill twice and it worked fine.
A few notes to be aware of: While at the beach on days when there wasn't much wind, the sand fleas ate us up. Use bug spray if you plan to be on the beach each day just in case. This was the first time we rented a place that didn't include linens, so we were not prepared and needed to buy towels and sheets the day we arrived. Had we realized that was even a possibility we could of brought items with us.
We would stay here again!
