About Sarah Davidson

We are an active traveling family with 6 vacation properties for rent. This ocean front house, and another 6 houses down the street, a Townhome in Cottonwood, Utah (8 miles from Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton) and 3 Slopeside Condos in Wintergreen, Virginia. Vacation Year Round in one of our wonderful homes! We offer 10% discounts for customers who stay in two our homes in the same year. We are pet friendly because ours are apart of the family. We love to ski and play tennis as a family, but travel frequently for Sarah (Mom) who is a frequent triathlon competitor.

Sarah Davidson purchased this house in 2011

Why Sarah Davidson chose Coastal North Carolina

The View is Amazing. The ocean runs East to West so you get an Ocean Sunrise and Ocean Sunset. Conveniently located a half hour off Interstate 40.

Tennis For Free..Just 3 blocks from Free Public Tennis Courts that are in Great Shape!

For Golfers...The Oak Island Golf Club welcomes you to a coastal Carolina golfing experience. But summer vacationers to Oak Island’s vacation community in Brunswick County enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and warm southern hospitality that are hallmarks of Oak Island GC. The 18-hole, 6,720 yard George Cobb design provides an exciting adventure, round after round.

What makes this house unique

Rest, Beach, Bike, Tennis, Golf, Walks and Plenty of Night Life. Great for Families. The Wednesday Farmers market is 3 blocks away--so fun! Also in this area is a skate board park and children's playground!

We have another ocean front home 7 houses down the street if you are bringing more family and friends along--togetherness, but not too close!!

So convenient and sweet!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time at this house! It was right on the beach, so it was easy to run back and forth to the house. The beds were very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Mary, I know you enjoyed the proximity of the beach to the house. It is so close and as you say "easy to run back and forth" for forgotten items or snacks! Also great for after dinner walks on the beach as well! It is a lovely time of year to be at the beach! Glad you found us on VRBO and hope you return. Kind Regards, Sarah

Perfect for a friend reunion - right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Just checked out today after a 5-day weekend with my gal pals (we are 3 women in our 40's) and the house was perfect for our needs. We loved that it was right on the beach! The house is not fancy but it was as described. The washing machine came in handy, the kitchen was fine for cooking basics, and the porch was the perfect spot for watching the sun set.

Since it's late March and we had mid-70-degree weather, we would have loved to open the windows and let the perfect beach air into the house, but the windows are pretty old and would not open (or stay open). My one suggestion is to get new windows on the beach side of the house.

Overall we really enjoyed it and hope to come back!

Owner's Response: Whit, I know you were really looking forward to that vacation with your friends, I'm very glad you all had a good time. We do an improvement project every spring and this spring it is new windows beach side! When you come back you'll get cool beach breezes! Take Care, Sarah

Nice Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

It was a cute little house in a great location. It was a very cold weekend at the beach where we even got to see it snow! You will love the view of the ocean. Oak Island provides beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I would recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Mollie, I am so glad even though you had snow you had a good get-away. The location is great but even better with sunny weather! Glad you enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets! We would love to have your family back again! Take Care, Sarah

Fantastic Beach Lcation

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for a quick spring break beach get away with my daughters and a few friends (and our small dog Jack!). Location is fantastic, view is amazing. Owners were easy to work with and answered any questions I had in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: Dear Wally, I love that you found the location "fantastic," hard to beat ocean front, no wonder you found the view "amazing!" We pride ourselves on answering all inquiries and questions within a half hour. Hope you come back next year and let us know how we can turn it into a 5-star review. Take Care, Sarah

Was very happy with the location of the cottage, but very disappointed in the cleanliness.

Screens were torn on windows and both doors. Found food, toys, dust and dog hair behind the sofas and needed to clean the blades on the ceiling fans as dust blew when turned on.

Owner's Response: Carolyn, I know you realize we do a spring cleaning every year and you came just before the spring cleaning. The screens in the doors get replaced once a year, every spring. It is impossible with multiply storms and quite a hurricane this past year, to keep screens in perfect order. The nature of an ocean front home is it gets A LOT of battering wind and rain year round. This house stays booked about every single week year round. Since you were there a month I am really disappointed you never called or emailed me to let me know about the dust behind the sofas because I would have been very glad to send someone out there and give it another cleaning while you were there. All my guests have to do is get in contact with me and I am happy to respond immediately. The cleaning people had to spend several extra hours after you left to get it back in shape for the next people. Sending a cleaning person in mid-way would have made this task easier. Apparently there was frozen fish left stuck in the freezer that had to be chipped out after your departure. Sarah
