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.
This house was great! Clean, plenty of room and fully stocked. Loved everything about this house. Owners are very nice and available for questions. Can't wait to go back!
This place was amazing! McGee By The Sea was so CLEAN and colorful. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and we had plenty of room. So nice to be able to walk right out onto the beach from the huge front porch. House was stocked with everything that you need for a fantastic vacation even the kitchen. The kids actually loved to play some of the games provided by the owners. Loved the outdoor shower!! The beds were comfy as well! Everything was awesome!
Our vacation at McGee By the Sea was beyond expectations! The home is larger than expected with a super ocean front porch and a play area under the house for the rainy days. The living/dining area was spacious and child friendly. Clean as a whistle upon arrival! Nice to have linens provided. Will definitely rent again and encourage others to do so. A great vacation place!
We enjoyed staying at McGee by the Sea very much! The location was perfect with beautiful views of the ocean from the deck. The inside of the house was very clean and fresh looking. It was also much larger than the pictures made it appear! The owners of the property were available to answer any questions we had before we booked our stay and after, too. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the Deck House in Carolina Beach, exploring the fort, the aquarium, and jogging around the lake! Such a relaxing vacation! Hopefully, we can return soon!
Plenty of room for our 4 generation vacation. Great house with a warm and homey feeling in a large and very well maintained interior and a front porch that has it all. Plenty of parking. Beach front view allows non swimmers to enjoy being at the ocean. Our 20th year at Carolina/Kure and one of the best houses we have had the privilege to rent. Our whole family had nothing but positive remarks and the grandchildren wanted me to buy this house.
