Have an old fashion vacation in an updated and well equipped cottage complete with a full kitchen, open living room/dining area, and cozy spots for sunning, grilling, playing, dreaming. The side porch is a private sanctuary after a fun filled day at the beach, where you can curl up in your shorts and flip flops with the novel you found in the bookcase. The family can gather around the back yard patio and play board games, or as the sun goes down watch one of the many family movies we keep on hand for you. We provide two bikes if you want to capture the island spirit through the back roads and nearby parks, and restaurants. The extra large master bedroomfeatures a queen bed and is bright and light with lots of windows and a tv for your evening news. The other two bedrooms feature double beds and one has an area that is a desk if you want to take advantage of the wireless and do computer work.

About Sharon or Debra

Hi I am Sharon and this is going to be my retirement home.

Sharon or Debra purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Sharon or Debra chose Coastal North Carolina

When I walked in I felt the good energy. Love the side porch for relaxing and all the light and nature that grace the indoors.

Cute Cottage - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time while staying at the cottage. The backyard was great for our dogs, and the outdoor shower was perfect to clean off before going inside. 1 block from the sand was wonderful, and it's so close to both Kure Beach and Carolina Beach that you get the benefit of both quaint towns.

Sharon was wonderful and made sure that we got in safe, and that we had everything we needed. I believe our family will be back for sure.

Cottage was okay

  • 1 of 5

Cottage was clean and at a good location, owners were nice, but air conditioner wasn't working properly, had problems with roaches/water bugs ,kitchens supplies were limited ,and for the price of the cottage I expected better. I wouldn't not stay there again Barbara G

First impression was lovely but there was more...

  • 2 of 5

Our first overall impression of the cottage was nice and the house seemed clean, however my husband had to open the shed to look for a lawn mower because the grass was knee high. When he opened the shed there was a massive wasps nest and he had to go buy wasp spray in order to get into the shed to get the lawn mower to mow the grass. The grass needed to be mowed because we had two small dogs that had to go out. The trash can outside was full upon arrival, and maggots were everywhere in the trashcan. Every single night we withnessed atleast four roaches that were atleast an inch and a half long. We actually sprayed for roaches every single day to keep them at bay, it was definitely a losing battle. At the side door it smelled as if dog poop had been buried near by prior to our arrival. The house had potential but there were many hidden nightmares. Maybe if the premises is kept cleaner the roaches and maggots wouldnt ruin the review of this house.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, it's me Sharon, the owner of the cottage.. I was sorry to hear of your problems a month after you arrived. I live here on the beach and have maintenance workers on my payroll to keep these problems under control. I have the yard mowed every ten days by Browns Property Solutions and yes things were overgrown during a couple of weeks in July during heavy rainstorms. And with all that rain it was hard for them to find a window to mow. We have the cottage treated under contract for bugs. Why did you choose to live with that rather than call me to have it resprayed? I am sorry you didn't have a great experience like the other guests I have spoken to. Sincerely, Sharon

Quaint Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had an excellent stay. The cottage description was accurate. It was also well maintained and clean. It is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood, very close to the beach. The neighbors we ran into and talked with were real friendly. The only problem is that we had an issue with the A/C but Sharon worked diligently to get it fixed. Thanks for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time Jimmie to share your experience at the Enchanted Cottage! I am sorry about it being warm inside a couple of days but what the a/c technician explained it was not broke but we were in a heat advisory with temps in the three digits. Most of the a/c (mine at home too) were struggling to keep up. I sincerely hope you and your family will return again. Sharon
