Great experience, great cottage, great location, and great communication with the owner :)

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is quaint, clean, well kept with central AC, full size washer and dryer, and current, functioning kitchen appliances; although, I only used the MW and the frig. in the kitchen. There is a shower inside, but I did enjoy the outside shower with both hot and cold running water.

The cottage is located near the Avalon pier and, this was a must, is dog friendly. I have 2 small toy poodles and wanted them with me; and, being close to the beach was great for my aged pups.

Initially, I was hesitant about working with a private individual and staying in an unfamiliar cottage. I live an hour from the cottage, so before finalizing my reservations I drove down and spoke with the current clients. It was a family of 4 and the parents spoke positively about their experience. I must agree with them, the owner, Brenda, was great to work with and responded to my inquiries in a timely manner. I am not disappointed in my decision and do recommend the cottage. When time permits, I hope to visit again.

Sweet Dreams and Great OBX Memories

  • 4 of 5

This cute cottage has it all. Clean, updated, comfortable (central air!). Our family of five enjoyed a wonderful week. And glorious sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean are less than a five minute walk to the beach. A great value that we highly recommend.

IN LOVE WITH 'SWEET DREAMS' !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the fortunate experience of meeting the owners last spring when they were renovating their cottage. We quickly had confidence in them and went ahead and rented 'Sweet Dreams' without hesitation. Our family has just returned from our vacation and we could not be happier with our stay there. The cottage is clean, comfortable, has great mattresses, and just a short walk to the beach. Our 10 year old granddaughter loved her cute bedroom. 'Sweet Dreams' is the kind of place that makes a person want to live there year-round if possible. Thank you Doug and Brenda for such a pleasant stay.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in August last year (2015) and we loved it so much we rented again last week. Cute and clean. Close to beach and restaurants and shopping. And dog friendly so our dogs had a great vacation as well! Would highly recommend and we are already talking about going next summer!
