About Bill McNeil

We have lived in North Carolina for 42 years, currently in Geensboro, after growing up in Upstate New York and Florida and going to college in Pennsylvania, Boston and UNC-Chapel Hill.

Bill McNeil purchased this house in 2004

Why Bill McNeil chose Shallotte

Our home offers a great place to retreat, connect with nature, get in touch with the ebb and flow of tides in the marsh. It is away from the congested beaches, yet close enough to enjoy them. For golfers, over 30 Myrtle Beach and Brunswick County courses are within 30 miles.

What makes this house unique

After looking at beach property along the entire NC coast, we found this river-view gem at the end of a sandy path, with what some have called a million dollar view.

Restful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Shallotte & thought the house was a great value with lots of amenities from the 2 kayaks, big beautiful porch overlooking the marsh & river, hot tub, washer & dryer, board games, full kitchen with all appliances & dishes, 3 bedrooms, lots of space, & very clean accommodations made it easy for our family of 5 to relax & enjoy. The other huge perk was being able to bring along our dog, who was so happy to be with us! We found a few great restaurants and beaches around Shallotte to make our vacation unforgettable. If you stay, you must visit Pelican's snowballs & try one of the 100 flavors! The only suggestion we might have is to install a whole house dehumidifier to take away some of the dampness that goes along with rentals near the water. Thank you for a wonderful week!

Relaxing family trip to NC!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Bill & neighbor Ed for providing us a great home for our family vacation! House was super clean and stocked with all the basic necessities you need on the first day. The night sky and all the sounds of nature while sitting on the back porch was one of my favorite things to do! We didn't turn the TV on once all week...we played games, read 2 books and did puzzles (we left one for the house), enjoyed the beautiful local beaches and donut shop! Thanks for a wonderful trip in your home!!

Owner's Response: We're delighted you had a good stay at our place on the Shallotte, even with noise from the house construction across the way interrupting the peace. Come again when you can. Bill and Pat McNeil .

Our family loved the home and the easy laid back atmosphere. The views of the Shallote river were beautiful all day even while it was raining. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again. We were also able to bring our South African Boerboels, which is often difficult to find places who allow dogs. We are very thankful for the opportunity to stay in such a great place. Thanks so much!

nice house, peaceful location, great views!

  • 4 of 5

we really enjoyed our stay at this property. far enough out to have a peaceful time spent at the house, but close enough to go do things or visit the beach. the porch facing the river is fantastic! we enjoyed the hot tub every evening. we would definitely return here in the future.
