  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at McGee by the Sea! Its a great location with a fabulous view from the porch. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal, and it was so nice to have a Kuerig for all the coffee drinkers! We will definitely book again! Thank you McGee by the Sea for a great week at the beach!!

This was a very nice beach house and location

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Carolina beach for years and this was by far the best house we've stayed at. This place has everything you need , just bring clothes and food that's all you need everything else is there. It is updated and is very clean, we enjoyed it very much.

The house was wonderful and fit our needs perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

The house is halfway between the Kure Beach pier and Carolina beach pier which was great and walkable! The porch was great and the nice touches added by the owners made it very nice ( coffee, dish soap etc)

The house was beautiful. Very clean and wonderfully decorated. IIt also has a very nicely stocked kitchen. I highly recommend this house. Nice size bedrooms and bathrooms. And all just so pretty. The big porch, the easy access to the beach and the lower deck were such a bonus!!

Well-stocked and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This 5 BR 2.5BA oceanfront house was well-stocked and the location exactly 1mi north of Kure Beach pier and 1mi south of Carolina Beach pier/boardwalk was ideal. The beach was recently renourished in Feb 2016 (eg, sand from miles out in the Atlantic is slurried-in to build up the beach) and therefore quite substantial. The sheets must've been 400-count cotton because they were luxurious - nice if you have a sunburn! The photos and artwork/decor were very tastefully done. The kitchen had every possible gadget and serving utensil (sans some good slicing knives) and both drip and Keurig coffee makers. Each room has a TV. The Internet was fast. The front porch was deep with a nice 6-person table for games and cards + 6 rocking chairs. The kitchen table was long and could seat 10 (we did!). Nice gas grill and lots of beach chairs (though some were rusty from the ocean). I especially liked the layout of the master bed with its own bathroom/laundry tucked away down the stairs and away from the noise of the kitchen and living room. We rented this home for our family with adult children and their friends and it was perfect. The living room had a pullout couch but we didn't use it. The house came with all the linens (plus extra) so we didn't have to bring those. There were lots of spices to choose from plus starter paper goods, which helped a lot when we decided to cook. The only issue we had was our son got a cut on his hand from the barnacles growing on the concrete blocks in front of the house in the ocean - so don't climb on those! We did have to bring beach towels, coolers, and a cabana and some extra folding beach chairs. I would hands-down recommend this place to anyone and we have already reserved a week again next year.
