About Robin Enterline

My husband and I bought 'Prime Time' from my parents. It has been in the family since I was a small child. Great beach for kids and families!!

Robin Enterline purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Robin Enterline chose Coastal North Carolina

This area of West Beach Dr has a single row of ocean front cottages, with undeveloped land behind us, making it one of the least populated areas on Oak Island. There is no walk-through traffic.

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The view, the location, everything was great about this property. Very comfortable and has a well-stocked kitchen. The deck is amazing and the beach is beautiful and uncrowded. Remodeled upstairs is cute as a button. This owner is extremely attentive and responsive - could not do enough for us and it was wonderful to meet her in person. Looking forward to going back next year!

Still the best!

  • 5 of 5

Still my favorite cottage!

Cottage was renovated in the off season, making the master bedroom larger, adding an en-suite bathroom, hardwood floors, new kitchen cabinetry, etc. My only concern was that making the master larger and adding the bath resulted in the loss of the 5th small bedroom, which had two twin beds; although most years we didn't use that room, it was nice having the added flexibility.

Shouldn't have worried - the changes are well worth it, and actually make the cottage an even better fit for families with small children, as the larger master now has more than enough room for tow portable cribs or pack and plays!

Location of this cottage is also ideal - the cottages to either side are residents, and a few cottages to the east is a protected dune, both of which ensure that the beach in front of prime time is never too crowded.

We'll be back again next year!

My favorite rental

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this property at least 4 times, and we love it. The cottage is always clean and nicely kept, and the location is fantastic! The bedrooms are well-planned, with 2 that could work as master bedrooms and 3 that have 2 beds each. 2 families of four can easily share this cottage, with room to spare, and we've actually hosted a family reunion here with a total of 12 people - although it was a little more crowded in that case, no complaints and everyone had a bed. Even with 12 people, between the 3 bathrooms and the enclosed outdoor hot/cold shower, very little wait time for showers! In other rentals we've had limited success in finding even a basic array of cooking utensils as well as pots and pans, however this year when we stayed at this cottage it seemed as if several new items had been purchased, which was a nice surprise. The deck is a gem - so nice to be able to sit out on a deck mid-way to the beach! We will definitely be coming back!
