About Rebecca Triplett
My name is Rebecca Triplett. I purchased this property and lived there with family for several years. Family obligations drew us back to our home state of Minnesota but we just could not part with this treasure. We made this unit into a weekly rental so we will have a place to stay when we visit and hopefully still pay the mortgage :-) It was a fixer upper to say the least when I bought it. We have made a ton of improvements and continue to make changes to make it a wonderful vacation for our guests.
Rebecca Triplett purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Rebecca Triplett chose Carolina Beach
I was looking for access to the beach and a pool but still wanted to have a quiet and private space. I did not like having to deal with the crowds, traffic noise and party atmosphere of the strip along the ocean but then I found this treasure! It is so close to the beach as well as all of the activities Carolina Beach has to offer. The house is right next to all the stuff you'll want to experience. Once you get to the bungalow you could just leave your car and walk to everything you would like to do. You can literally sit on the front patio and watch the Thursday night fireworks and smell the donuts cooking at Brits! The pool is as large or larger than some of the pools at the hotels in the area but virtually private. You will feel like you are in an oasis. I love to cook and have had some bad experience with rental properties saying they had a well stocked kitchen but did not. Don't worry about that here. I have made sure I have all the tools I need to have fun with my cooking hobby.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a one story unit. There are no stairs to get in, or once you get in. Trust me, this is a great feature! No hauling all your things up and down all those stairs! There is exterior space for children to play with a gate to separate that space from the pool. We are a pet friendly unit. We love pets!!! But to us that does not just mean that we allow pets. The unit is designed with flooring that allows for good clean up between rentals. It is mostly tile with a low pile carpet in the bedroom. This unit also has plenty of parking. Unlike many units that only allow one car, we have private parking for three vehicles and unlimited parking right next to the unit along the road.

Rented both places with friends and didn't want to leave the property!! The pool was amazing and the location was spot on. Can't wait to return.
The location is perfect. Located close to everything and offers your own quiet oasis! Well stocked kitchen. We have already made plans for next year
Best time ever
Let me start out by saying we had an amazing stay! All 3 of my sons with their families & my BFF with her teenage children- one of which is handicapped & in a wheelchair stayed with us for part of the week. 11 of us in all. We rented both properties. I think it would be a little odd renting just one & sharing the pool with strangers. You also have to go thru the gate on the side of the cottage and walk thru the pool area to get to the bungalow.
The bungalow was very accessible for the wheelchair to the bathroom & bedrooms; & of course no steps to climb was like heaven.
The cottage bedroom was perfect for my son & his family- lots of space for setting up the portable crib for their baby.
The captain bunks were good for the teenage boy, but my 28 year old son felt cramped.
My oldest son and his significant other had planned to sleep on the sofa bed in the cottage, but it is in bad shape, even just for sitting. So glad we brought along a queen air mattress.
The bunk beds in the bungalow were low to the floor & made it easy to get the handicapped teenage in/out of bed, while the top bunk was used to place suitcases.
However, those bunk beds are very light & would not support anyone older or bigger.
We picked Carolina beach because of the handicap accessible boardwalk & beach accesses, but we only went twice because we enjoyed the pool so much! The slide is gone, but we would not have used it much anyway. We spent much of our time sitting in the chairs around the table with an umbrella. A hot tub would have been nice.
We didn't even have to go any further than the front sitting area to enjoy the Thursday night fireworks.
Parking is a little awkward- there is a paved drive for the cottage. You just park on the grass in front of the cottage if you are staying in the bungalow. There are no signs indicating the area is for the bungalow so other people often take your parking space as it's a free parking area.
We only went out to eat once- so we did a lot of cooking in the bungalow. Kitchen supplies were acceptable, but could only find 1 hot pad between the 2 places. Nice huge refrigerator in the bungalow.
There are nice touches like hooks & shoe bags on the doors as well as games. Cute décor, but I wish the bedroom had a place to put my suitcase instead of the chair. I had to pull a night stand over to the mirror to place my things while I fixed my hair.
Love the outside shower!
I would go back again!
Great little house
We brought the family here. Everyone had a wonderful time. We'll definitely be back next year, but going to rent the 2 bedroom bungalow next time
Summer 2019 Dancing Oaks
Third time staying here, location and property fabulous as always. The pool pump broke during our stay - once reported it was repaired very promptly. Dancing Oaks is a short walk to everything - restaurants/bars/shops downtown, Veggie Wagon, beach is 1.5 blocks, with wagon to carry stuff out. The only spot that is too far for us to walk is the Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar. Absolutely recommend this property!
Much needed last minute getaway!
Very neat and clean and comfortable. We were able to take our fur babies they enjoyed themselves and we had a nice quiet getaway.
Everything you need is there! Just pack and go 🥰
This is a vacationer paradise. It has everything your could want right in walking distance. The beach, the boardwalk, the marina, wonderful restaurants, unique bars, gift stores, candy, fudge, ice cream, an amusement park, outdoor movies, fireworks and more! All of this is just steps of away from the private and quite retreat of Dancing Oaks Bungalows.
