We have stayed at Family Tides many times. Each time it has been great. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we need to cook good meals. There are always plenty of towels and washcloths. The house is always clean. Kay is fantastic to work with. We will definitely be coming back.

The owner was totally amazing, she saved our vacation! We had originally rented out a vacation home from another owner only to show up n find it infested w fleas. we were stranded with no place to go I found this listing called her she took my paymnt over the phone n gave us directions to the home. The house had more than enough room for us all(9), min to the beach and within walking distance to shops etc. we will def be retuning in the future. This def felt like home. Thank You :)

Great place with tons of space. Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay included 10 guys and we felt that if we needed to we could have fit 15 in comfortably. We never felt like we were on top of each other and all the amenities were perfect for what we needed. The beach is about 2 blocks away and can easily be walked. Restaurants and bars are also within walking distance. Would stay again and recommend for others!

nice house.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at family tides a week in December. The house was clean and very well equipped with everything you would need. When we needed some help, Kay got the job done. Blackbeards was not very far away, and I Would recommend that restaurant to anyone. They had wonderful food. I would recommend family tides to any of my friends

Location was great but property needs updating

  • 2 of 5

We were excited to come to the beach for a week and we did enjoy the short walk between the beach and the rental home. The house had good bones and certainly enough room for our party, but was in dire need of updating. The floors are terribly warped and we felt like we were walking through a minefield as we negotiated around soft spots in the floors. The pool table downstairs had a dip in the middle so no matter where you hit the balls, they all rolled back to the center. The entire game room had old and worn out gaming tables (foosball, ping pong, pool) and smelled like mildew.

Great house close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean. The kitchen had everything for cooking. The kitchen table was big enough for 10 people for family dinner. The open kitchen-living room was great. Short distance from the beach. This house was perfect for our family and would recommend to anyone.
