Reviewer Comments: We had the loveliest stay in Blue Moon Cottage - so much so, we are nervous to share this review and don't want to share our fantastic secret. It is perfectly decorated, has incredible amenities, excellent location, EVERYTHING! We were there in off season and it was still fabulous. The management company was excellent - well above par. They have amazing attention to detail to make the stay perfect. The property is in pristine condition unlike many of the overused beach rentals in the area.

Great kitchen with lots of cook and dining ware, great toys and beds and bathrooms and linens. Great place for entertaining. But the sound system was sketchy and no tv channels were available, though provided in every room. I would recommend keeping a cable subscription up to date and providing understandable instructions on how to use tvs for future guests. Had to call Maintenance when a smoke detector started beeping beyond our reach but they were indeed courteous and quick to respond. And the balconies were great and flooded the house with light, though sometimes it seemed to be a little too bright. All in all, a great house with lots of small details and extra amenities that we all appreciated. Thanks to all that made it possible~

Reviewer Comments: My husband and I were looking for a beach get away and this fit the bill. The beach was just steps from our door and walking distance to some beach restaurants and shopping. Downtown Wilmington was only a 15-20 minute drive. Cons: Like another reviewer, we, too, had to buy toilet paper and lamps that had two light bulbs per lamp only had one bulb that worked in each so lighting was poor.
