About Sharon

Hi I am Sharon Lyons. Originally from New York City I relocated to Carolina/Kure Beach 31 years ago. Currently I live in Carolina Beach so I am nearby in case you need anything during your stay! Someday I hope to retire at the Enchanted Cottage.

Sharon purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Sharon chose Kure Beach

Before I even had two feet inside this cottage I knew it was mine! The good energy, the natural lighting and being able to take a short walk to the ocean were some of the features that captivated me.

What makes this cottage unique

It's a fun and spirited neighborhood with mostly primary and secondary properties so not just a lot of tourists.

Nice beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

A great location with less than a 5 minute walk to the public access for the beach. It was a 5 minute drive to the boardwalk and a 3 minute drive to the Kure Beach Pier. It was also close to restaurants and the aquarium. The house itself was outdated and was in need of some renovations. The oven was unable to cook our food properly and the floors were very creaky as you walked up and down the halls. All in all it was a nice beach getaway and for people traveling with dogs/small children it was more than accommodating.

Great little retro cottage near beach

  • 4 of 5

Weather was great. House cute, AC works well. Sheets very comfy, seating outside great, internet worked well. List sent to sharon with repair needs. Also: knob on dresser in back room missing. Did not get a enough supplies, pod used for "dishwasher" must have been mislabeled- too much suds, probably for laundry, hose outside hard to get to- thorns and bushes,

Owner's Response: Thank you Nansi for taking the time to write a review and for giving the cottage 4 starts! I appreciate you sharing with me some things that need to be addressed and I have someone working on that this week since it is unoccupied. Hope to see you again next year! Sincerely, Sharon

Quiet street one block from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great location near everything. Owner provided everything needed to stock the bath room and kitchen (except food of course). Good for a small family on a budget. Pet friendly - dog liked it too!

Cute cottage very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. It was clean and so convenient to the beach- just a short walk across the street. The only problem we had was connecting to the wi-fi but we called Sharon and she helped us connect immediately. She was very gracious and helpful. We will definately stay here again if we return to Kure beach.

Hope you come back again Susan! Most Sincerely, Sharon

Location was great, house needs a little TLC.

  • 3 of 5

House is in a fantastic location but needs some work. Knobs were missing, or broken off several things. Washer/dryer were missing knobs, outdoor shower spigot broke off, shower handle fell off, bathroom light dimmer switch fell off, kitchen sink sprayer handle was broken. The mattresses are so old they sag in the middle and the beds make so much noise when you move that is was hard to get a good nights sleep. The living area has a sofa that can sit about 3 people and 2 very uncomfortable wicker chairs. The dining set chair seats are loose and slip off if your not careful. The house was ok but probably won't stay there again.

Owner's Response: Oh no, I am sorry your experience at the cottage was not as enjoyable as my other guests this summer. I will address the broken knobs as soon as the next guests leave. As for the mattresses it is a hard call on my part some people prefer them soft others harder. Two mattresses were replaced last summer and the third the summer before. But I appreciates you bringing this all to my attention. I only want the best for my guests. Sincerely, Sharon

It could have cleaner on the outside and the grass was tall when we got there.

  • 4 of 5

All in all, it was a great stay. We called about the grass when we first got there and the owner had it mowed that evening. The inside was very clean and updated.

Owner's Response: Hi Amy, I am so glad you had a great stay. I have increased my lawn company to come every week instead of every 10 days with all the rain this summer the weeds have been brutal. Hope you come back and stay again. Sincerely, Sharon
