Sea Gull Lane was everything we could ask for!!!

  • 4 of 5

First off, we are a local family that needed a quick Staycation at the beach for Spring break. Mom, Dad, 2 kids, Nana, and a big Chocolate Lab all headed to Sea Gull Lane on a whim.

You couldn't ask any more from the Home owner. Very helpful, quick to respond via email, text, VRBO, etc. He accepted our offer to stay in minutes and together we finalized the agreement within hours.

The place itself was perfect for our needs. The pictures and comments on the site are great, but you will be pleasantly surprised that they do not tell the whole story.

Location - Perfect. Literally 1 minute walk from your deck to the beach access. Awesome section of the beach as well. Not too crowded and everyone has space. 5 minute walk to the boardwalk for food, fun, arcade, music, and Britts Donuts. ( Don't pass on them even of the line is 30 long. You will regret it)

The house - Amazing. Everything is updated and top notch. The owners put a lot of work, time and heart into creating an atmosphere that they would enjoy living in.

The kitchen is large and open. Big island with seating and fully stocked. You literally do not have to bring anything but food and drinks.

Living Room is comfy and clean. Very large wall mounted TV for winding down. Loaded with all the Apps. Wi-Fi is better than mine at home. Easily accessible. Plenty of space for our whole group plus guests.

Bedrooms also were just right. Master was quaint, colorful and off to the side. The kids room was large with 2 massive bunk beds. Solid, well built furniture with smartvlittle detail. Everyone was happy even the picky little 10 year old.

Speaking of the details. This place has them in spades. The dining room is a custom built corner bench and table lit by beachy sand filled lanterns hanging above. Very cool and playful.

The local art on the walls, the coconut pirates, pin striping, signage, everything. Just ideal and unexpected. Very well designed and excellent use of space. We took tons of pics just to brag on the place.

And before I run out of characters, I must mention the downstairs level. Grills, a secret swing, 3 outdoor showers (with hot water) and a massive storage closet loaded with all kinds of beach toys, games, chairs,etc. Again, pack nothing but food, drinks, clothes, and towels.

If I forgot anything else, don't worry. The place is beyond your expectations. Plus, very reasonably priced. A beach bargain, and I live 15 minutes away.

Last note. We loved it!

Wonderful property and would return again

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit. It was the upstairs of a house, but we could use the downstairs outdoor showers and storage shed with beach needs (chairs, toys, umbrellas). We LOVED the partitioned off outdoor shower; several of us took all of our showers there. It was so refreshing.

The kitchen was huge with all the items we needed for cooking several meals. The place itself is really nicely decorated, and comfortable as well. We stayed here with my in-laws, my wife and I, and our two toddlers. Wonderful stay.

Perfect location, great host

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Carolina Beach. This house is the perfect location, easy walk right to the beach. We loved taking advantage of the outdoor showers, especially with two young kids. It was also convenient to have beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, etc. in the storage closet. Craig is a great host and checked in with us frequently via text to make sure that there were no issues during our stay. When booking, he gave us a detailed email with recommendations for restaurants, as well as a company that does boat tours that we took advantage of.

All in all, this is a great location, with great communication from the owner. We would love to stay here again in the future.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Carolina beach! Craig and his family were great hosts, very helpful and prompt when we had any questions. The home was very clean. I thought it was going to be small but it was perfect for our family of 6. It was so close to everything. Having the washer and dryer was great and we all loved the private outdoor shower! We will definitely be back, already talking about next year. 😊?

Great Little House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at his house for 3 days. It was great. It had everything we needed and lots of the same comforts of home. The TV was great with cable, and the wifi worked great. It was across the street from the beach and walking distant to some great restaurants. There is a really great Mexican food up the street. All walking distance.

The place has everything we needed for our short stay. It was clean and Craig was awesome and very helpful. The owners are pet friendly and my dog loved sitting with us on the deck or running on the beach.

The owner Craig was so pleasant and helpful, and answered any questions I had. He contacted me to make sure everything was ok. The price was great! I highly recommend this place for a visit to the beach in Wilmington. I will differently rent from Craig again.

Best Lil Gem on Carolina Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very easy to book, Craig responded to my inquiry right away with all the information I needed and was great and friendly during check in. The house and location is amazing! The first thing we noticed while entering the home is the beautiful flooring, decor and cleanliness. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed or forgot. The outside showers (2) were amazing (hot water) and we were so close to the beach that we spent most of our time there. There was plenty of beach toys and chairs so no need to bring or buy any. Everything is in walking distance so we didn't drive during our entire stay which was really nice. It was also really nice that the entire area is pet friendly. Our dog was just as sad as us to leave lol. Will definitely be back.
