Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The Allen's Cottage is the perfect location between sound and ocean. The house provided an indescribable Wrightsville Beach warmth with breathtaking views from the front deck. We appreciated the open floor plan, beautiful kitchen, and dining area. We would highly recommend booking your next family vacation here.

Wonderful, relaxing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Easter weekend at the Allen cottage and had a blast! The House was perfect! We had 2 families with 7 children altogether and there was plenty of room. We loved how charming the house was - it has so much character. It was clean and well stocked! We would love to stay again some time!

Perfect Comfortable - Banks Channel - Fully Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Allen Cottage and at Wrightsville Beach for a 60th Weekend Birthday Beach Bash! House and kitchen are fully equipped for anything you need. Loved that they had lots of seating in the huge great room and a good TV for March Madness games!! Disappointed that the weather did not permit us to use the dock/pier but we still had a fantastic time! Perfect rental - we will be back! Thanks Katie and family!

The property was perfect! Just the right size for our trip.

  • 4 of 5

Our experience with the house was great. We had just brought bedrooms and beds for everyone. We used this house for a girls trip so all of the twin beds were perfect! The beach and the sound we’re a good distance. We were able to walk without any problems. Sitting on the pier was even better. If the wind hadn’t been blowing so much we would’ve stayed out there all day. Overall our experience was perfect!

Perfect for Girl's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Allen Cottage for our annual girls trip to Wrightsville Beach. We have been doing the trip for 10 years, and this was without a doubt our favorite place to stay. It was like staying at a friend's home rather than renting a beach house. It had more than enough room for the 10 of us to eat in, or we could walk to eat anywhere on Wrightsville Beach. It was clean, well-maintained, and the owners were great to work with! We look forward to staying there again!!

Rented this house twice and hope to again!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented this house 2 years in a row and I've been beyond thrilled both times. Ms. Allen is great at keeping you in the loop leading up to your stay.

The house is great for family, friends, couples, etc. I highly recommend it!
