About Eddie Royko

We have lived in the Carolina's for the last 25 years. I am an Airline pilot for Usairways and my wife owns her own gymnastics company. We have 2 children that are in college in the Carolina's.

Eddie Royko purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Eddie Royko chose Coastal North Carolina

Carolina Beach is the best kept secret in Southeast North Carolina. The town is quaint and small but full of activities and wonderful dining. It's close to historic Downtown Wilmington, rich with revolutionary and civil war history, ILM airport, and a short ferry ride to historic Southport. Fort Fisher offers a civil war museum and the North Carolina Aquarium. The climate offers nearly year round enjoyment of the beach.

What makes this townhome unique

Park your car in the garage and leave it all week! Walk or bike to wonderful restaurants, shops, boardwalk and fishing boats. The ferry to Southport is a short drive (or bike ride) as well as Freeman Park on the North end, where 4-wheel drive vehicles are allowed on the beach. The beach is just steps away from the unit, allowing for a quick walk back for lunch. Enjoy the ocean breezes while drinking your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail on the deck! Or just Dune Nuttin'.

Great little homey cottage close to beach!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, charming interior, and extremely close to beach access! Will sleep 6 but not 6 adults, maybe 4 adults and 1or 2 small children. Well furnished except new patio cushions are needed. Great little find for the money!

Super Clean and Close to everything, Especially the beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! I could NOT have been any more pleased with our rental -- Dune Nuttin! When we arrived, I was shocked at how close everything was - the grocery stores, restaurants, local shops, music...everything! The place was so so clean! I wasn't sure what to expect since I have never rented through a private owner before or vrbo, but I was beyond pleased with the layout and cleanliness. Seriously, the pictures do NOT do this rental justice!

I also underestimated how close the beach access actually was. You could throw a stone and hit it. So close, which I loved because we have a toddler and the location made toting everything easy. With that, I will add that Dune Nuttin was very kid friendly. I didn't feel like I needed to worry about our daughter getting into anything or touching something she shouldn't. I would absolutely recommend for a family!

And the fact that the owner was amazing made this experience that much more enjoyable! I couldn't have asked for a better vacation (except that it was much longer ;) )!

I highly recommend this rental! If we ever get back to the Wilmington area, we will most definitely book this location again.

loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this location. 1 minute to the beach. Close to the boardwalk/carnival. Beach access point has lifeguard station right there. House was immaculate! Beautiful decorations, had everything we needed. Spent every night on the deck with the kids. Eddie and Teresa obviously take a lot of pride in this home. I would definitely come back. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and are so glad you loved your stay. We do take pride in our home as we also use it for ourselves and try to make sure all our guests enjoy it. Having the lifeguard station right at the beach access is another reason we love that location. Please let us know if we can help you reserve it again in the future.

Cute Place, Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over the Fourth of July holiday and had a wonderful time. The rental property is new, updated, and clean. We spent the mornings and evening relaxing on the deck while observing beach goers and listening to the ocean! It was a lot closer to the beach than I expected, which made for easy beach days. We were within walking distance to everything...restaurants, shops, and nightlife. Thank you Eddie for a great property! We will definitely recommend this rental property to friends and family.
