About Bill Williford

We built this property after retirement from the United States Army in 2004. My wife and I both retired from Fort Bragg, NC and this home is in close proximity to my brother and in addition, my Grandparents had 10 siblings, so we are kin to half the town of Tabor City. I graduated from the Citadel, The Military College of SC, and currently work for the US Navy in Washington, DC. My wife, upon retirement worked at the Loris Healthcare Center, 6 miles from the house in Loris, SC.

Bill Williford purchased this house in 2004

Why Bill Williford chose Coastal North Carolina

We built this property to be near the beach and golf, but not on the beach. At this home you can enjoy the wonderful weather, the outdoor pool and still leave in the morning for the sun and waves of North Myrtle Beach for shopping, cinema, theater, or dining and return to a quiet family gathering and relaxing evening. This is our retirement home and we plan on returning. In 2004, my wife and I were the Grand Marshals of the NC Yam Festival Parade in NC and Miss North Carolina stayed in our home. This is a wonderful town of 2200 where you can walk around the neighborhood and uptown without being bothered.

What makes this house unique

We built this Southern Living Home based on a house plan that was originally built in the town of Celebration, Florida outside of Disney World and we carried the plans around for 8 years while in the Service. The hard wood and tile floors are to ensure years of wear while still looking beautiful. The home is well appointed with furniture from SummerHome Furniture in Shallotte, NC. The Pool is very relaxing and is primarily for swimming going from 3.5 feet on the ends to 6 feet only in the middle. Pool volleyball is available in season and colorful lights and outdoor lights make night swimming an enjoyment. The 12 Foot ceiling in the den and 9 foot ceilings throughout the home create large rooms and an open feeling. The dining room has a great view of the pool and the porch off the Master is a great place to sit and listen to the pool waterfall. The two microwave ovens and the large GE Monogram Gas range, along with two dishwashers provides an easy meal made for the family and for easy cleanup.

the overall impression of the home was amazing with a few exceptions which i will describe below .

  • 4 of 5

the house was spacious without a doubt . Also extremely comfortable. However, I feel the care taker of the property should have the house cooled off prior to check in. It was extremely hot the day of check in and took 24hrs to cool the house which made it very uncomfortable. The toaster oven was broke but of course didnt notice until ready to make breakfast which was annoying. The umbrellas outside around the pool were broken. (both) Which made it unbearable to sit at those 2 tables. The pool really needs to be maintained more than once a week due to wind and pines falling in the pool along with other debris. We had to do our best to skim all the debris daily because there was not a pool vacuum at the property. We would have vacuumed the pool ourselves had one been there for our use. Also there were many clocks in the house but not one clock had renewed batteries. We used the microwave clock thankfully. But it was a little annoying. Also when ready to make dinner on the BBQ at 6 PM, gas tank was empty. Very annoying. Had we been for-warned it wouldnt have been a problem. The jacuzzi in the master bedroom needs to be maintained as when turned on it spits out dirt . These are all minor things which really could be avoided but we made the best of it and had a great time and enjoyed your home immensely. Thank you Laura from NY

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at Dixie Belle. We appreciate your feedback to make this a unique vacation spot in a charming Southern town. The summer has been beautiful and the pool has been a relaxing oasis for the hot summer heat. Come and enjoy the beautiful Dixie Belle. It is quiet, out of the Beach scene, but allows you in 30 minutes to attend fantastic restaurants and all that North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach, SC has to offer. Even more, it is only 30 minutes to North Carolina beaches of Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach with large white sandy beaches and a relaxing family environment. We appreciate your comments that will continue to make Dixie Belle a vacation destination.

Family Friendly Large Home

  • 4 of 5

We found the house to be spacious and it accommodated our family of 10 very well. The house was very clean and well maintained. We did have an issue with our bed collapsing the first night from what appeared to be a substandard repair job with the bed supports, however, it was resolved the next day. Also, 3 of the TV's did not get a signal but that was resolved the next day as well. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood seemed quiet and safe and we found their home to be extraordinary and very comfortable . The pool was clean and refreshing, too! The description of the location was accurate with the property being approximately 35 min. from North Myrtle Beach and a short drive from other beaches in North Carolina. I would highly recommend this property to my family/friends and we definitely plan to return.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to myrtle for years for bike week and have stayed at a few different places. I had the pics for the house but to see this house in person the pics are a under statement. This house is a beautiful house in a great location. Though there was a little bit of a commute to things it worked out perfect because the ride was a way to site see what's around. Definitely booking this house again.

Owner's Response: Dixie Belle continues to be an attraction for family and friends. Tabor City is close to everything but far enough away to relax in the summer charm. Come stay and relax. We'll see you soon!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here numerous times over the past few years. We will not stay any other place. We feel so at home when we come to Tabor City. Great location, not to far to drive to the beach. We love the home ! Plenty of space, pool is wonderful and very clean. There is plenty of places to eat and both Seafood Restaurants are great. If you are looking for a place to just get away and relax, this is your place.

Owner's Response: Tabor City continues to be a great family location, close to the beach and over 100 golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Enjoy the beach weather and ability to visit the beach without all the traffic and throngs of people. Relax at the Dixie Belle, play in the in ground pool, play a game of pool, cookout and eat outside by the pool or just relax and read a good book in the quiet Southern setting. You and your family will love the getaway. See you soon!

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this beautiful home. The pictures truly don't do it justice. This was one of the best vacation homes we've ever rented. The home was immaculately clean and had everything that we needed. All the rooms were beautifully decorated and the master has a huge walk in closet with an amazing jacuzzi tub and separate rain shower. For anyone who wants a little more privacy, there is a separate bedroom above the garage that has its own couch and chairs plus a kitchenette. This room is accessible from the inside of the house, just on a other end. The pool was wonderful as well as the hottub. We never got a chance to use the grill but gas was provided if we needed it. Ms. Kitty was amazing and was available anytime we needed her. Bill, the owner was also exceptional with answering any and all questions in a quick and timely manner. We normally rent oceanfront properties, but this house was so exceptional we didn't mind the 30 minute drive to the beach. We plan to rent this home again anytime we come to North Myrtle Beach in the future. Thanks again for allowing us to rent your amazing property.

Owner's Response: We are very excited to have friends that are enjoying our property and the beautiful setting that is Tabor City NC. Escape the hustle and bustle and relax in the warm waters of the Dixie Belle swimming pool. Gather the sunshine in Tabor and travel to over 100 golf courses within a 30 minute drive, travel to great shopping and Restaurants in Conway SC or in North Myrtle Beach, oh what fun in the sun. Finally, take a 30 minute drive to the SC Coast at North Myrtle Beach SC or down to Sunset or Ocean Isle Beach in NC. Great location and great fun. Enjoy.

Amazingly Clean...Just what our family needed

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a vacation home that would accommodate our family for Christmas while wanting to go somewhere new. We found the Tabor City home and thought it was absolutely beautiful. Prior to arrival the owner both reached out to us to answer any questions. Upon arrival Ms. Kitty contacted us to ensure that we had arrived and gotten settled in. Ms. Kitty offered to aid us in anyway and said all it would take is a phone call. Our stay was comfortable to say the least. Everything was as it was represented and our family was quite pleased and had a relaxing family time. Although it was December, we all spent an entire day in the pool which was one of the highlights of our trip. Spent many hours playing games in the family room and challenging each other on the pool table. Upon leaving, all anyone could ask was WHEN ARE WE COMING BACK???? The answer??? Next year...Christmas 2017!!! Your awesome Home was the perfect backdrop for our family's Christmas holiday!
