Perfect distance from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Host Dari was in touch and responsive from our first inquiry, and the house was wonderful for a relaxing, quiet no frills needed vacation with our adult daughters. Having the beach right across the street was perfect and we were in good walking distance of Carolina Beach restaurants and shops. Granny's for breakfast was super close, as well as Pop's for ice cream, practically next door. The carport was great for early morning and evening relaxing and we all thoroughly enjoyed being "required" to rinse off sand in the outdoor shower before entering the house. Air conditioning and fans kept everything comfortable inside. Kitchen was stocked well enough for the few meals we chose to have there. Only recommendation? That the town build sidewalks to the house! Thanks, Dari! We will recommend your places to friends!

Perfect little home close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place, right across from the beach made it perfect! I will definitely be back! The owner was very responsive to any questions I had before the trip and during! Loved it!! We did our laundry at the laundromat which was very close and when we were packing the car to leave , found the washer and dryer at the property. lol Guess we should have explored what doors the other keys would unlock! We will definitely be back!

Perfect spot for easy beach access and central location on Pleasure Island. The cottage was a great fit for my son and I. Nice new flooring and bathroom! Has all the basics one needs for a beach week.

Had a great stay at this little home. Everything was just as described. I would stay here again. Only 1 inconvenience: washing and drying linens per instructions on the morning of departure made for a very early wake up ..... The owner, Dari, whom I spoke with a few times was very friendly and accommodating. the place was clean and had so much more than other rentals I've stayed in. chairs for the beach....boogie for kids....they have thought of everything. thanks so much!

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home. We had a great time here. Our granddaughter Kaylee, just turned 2 she enjoyed playing in the sand and looking for shells. Carolina Beach is a great family resort. Thank you again for allowing us to stay. We hope to come back again.
