Perfect small cottage. Spotless.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, must have just been repainted and refreshed. Kitchen appliances new, carpet new, very well laid out with large living area and nice deck for morning coffee. All furniture comfortable. Tons of parking. Beach acess across the street. I was very pleased - hated to have to leave.

At less than 2 miles from the heart of Surf City, you are also super close to shopping and dining, for when you want to take a break from the awesome beach. Thanks so much for staying with us and we hope that you return soon!

Comfortable Beach House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Fun-N-The Sun.

- There is lots of parking for us & guests.

- Convenient beach access across the street; though the stairs are rather steep so it's difficult getting wagons/beach carts up/down. There is another access point a short walk away that is easier to maneuver.

- The outside shower/hose were very helpful for bathing ourselves and our Aussiedoodle.

- Speaking of our dog, there are a few side streets that offer nice, quiet areas to walk him off the main road.

- The kitchen/dining/family areas are very roomy so our family of 4 never felt cramped, even when another family of 3 visited.

- The beds were comfortable, but we used our own pillows.

- The kitchen is well stocked, but the appliances take longer to cook than the ones to which we're accustomed.

- There is ample storage underneath if you're uncomfortable leaving your chairs, etc. outside. Though the large storage area looks like it's had water damage; I imagine the owners are working on that - it won't impact your stay in the slightest.

- The washer/dryer work well, though the dryer takes a couple of cycles to thoroughly get towels dry.

- The WiFi worked great for remote connectivity to the office and for our Xbox (playing games & streaming TV/movies).

- The TV in the "master" bedroom is poorly installed, but it works.

- The carpet is clean, but I think it'd be easier to clean with hardwoods or ceramic tile throughout.

- There wasn't enough comfortable deck furniture pieces, but that wasn't enough to sway my 5 stars.

The best review I can provide is this: we'd go back to Fun-In-The Sun again & we'd recommend it to friends/family.

Thank you!
