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!

Perfect getaway and location.

  • 5 of 5

This was truly the best beach rental I have ever rented in all the beaches I've gone to. The location is absolutely perfect. It is really too good to be true. The space, bedrooms, everything was perfect. I was having a girls weekend and the beds were perfect. It is truly laid out for the best situation regarding sleeping arrangements, the twin beds are perfect for large groups. On Saturday, we spent all day floating on our floats in the sound. It was a walk across the street and you had a private beach to yourself. The waters were rough so we even had waves crashing and waves from boats passing by (that were no where near our floats so it was 100% safe). I would recommend this to Anyone, and especially just sitting sound side. There were 8 of us and had room for about 4 -6 more chairs so it was a nice size. We will definitely be booking again. Absolutely wonderful.

Great for our multi-generation, multi-family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Allen House! It has the charm of the beach houses we grew up with on Wrightsville, but the accommodations: beds, baths, kitchen, furniture, everything is clean and updated. Easy walk to the ocean, but the real treat is the fantastic deck for large gatherings and beautiful sunsets. Plenty of parking. Sound is perfect for afternoon floating if it's not your night to prepare dinner! Owners are wonderful to work with.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Allen Cottage for a fitness competition and relaxing beach mini vacay we were in town for. The family handles all booking and correspondences themselves which was such a nice touch vs through a rental agency. The cottage was everything as it was described and fit 13 adults just fine (even though it was a bit of a throw back to summer camp days putting 7 of us in 2 rooms downstairs in multi single beds, no one minded though). Excellent location for beach access (2nd row back), bars and restaurants (walking distance), beautiful views of the sound (sunset over the water - ahhhh) and unparalleled service from the owners who were friendly, available and the most accommodating. Super relaxing and laid back. Cannot WAIT to go back! We will definitely be booking this house again!

Tremendous house and location for a family beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from the deck of this well-appointed, charming, spacious, and clean cottage. It felt like a home away from home, with enough space for 9 adults to cook, eat, and relax. The walk to the beach was easy, even for my not-yet-2-year-old granddaughter, and the outside shower helped keep the sand from following us inside. The owners were delightful and we plan to return next year.
