About the Owner

My wife, Wanda, and I have always enjoyed vacationing with our dogs in tow. We have traveled the greater part of the 50 states, so imagine our surprise when we rented a cozy oceanfront cottage only 1 hour from our house and fell in love with this oceanic oasis! Since obtaining the property, we have made several upgrades, all while maintaining the historic character of the property. My niece, Dena, will handle your reservation needs. We welcome you to experience the beauty, peace, laughter, and love that this house has harbored for us over the years.

Perfect Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great home with a true beachfront location. The owners make you feel very welcome from the time you open the door and see the goodie bags for human and dog! Very well stocked and the perfect place to relax. Our weather was terrible, unfortunately, but having the sun room gave you the beach experience. Highly recommended!!!!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely place! I went for a winter beach getaway to celebrate my impending graduation from graduate school, and brought along my dog and a bunch of my classmates. The cottage accommodated a crowd beautifully, and everyone was very comfortable. We're in nutrition school, so we especially enjoyed cooking wonderful meals for each other in the open kitchen! And of course, even in the winter the beach is fantastically beautiful and calming to be near. Having it right out the back door was super luxurious, and we spent a lot of time walking on the beach, watching surfers and dolphins, and just soaking up the good vibes. Thank you for sharing your lovely oceanside home with us!

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible Thanksgiving. Next to heaven was perfect! close enough to everything we needed but a very quiet and peaceful setting to enjoy the ocean. pet friendly doesn't even describe how perfect it is for dogs. My dog loved basking in the sunroom.
great location, very clean and a lot of very homey touches. Can't wait to come back.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
As described and the only problem was the internet not working but fixed the next morning so someone pulled strings to get a cable company to come that fast. The view is like you would expect from the bridge of a ship so you know the photo's don't do it justice. Large enough and clean. Convenient to most everything with no need to go more than a very few miles to get supplies.

Everything it promised to be:)

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing! It was very clean, and the porch and outside shower provide you with ways to keep it that way even though you are surrounded by sand. What the description fails to mention is that high tide is right at the base of the porch steps--you literally step right into the ocean, which was fantastic. With a dog and two families with children, we had enough space to be comfortable, and sufficient seating to all eat meals together. The house is well equipped with everything you need, and only has one neighboring house, so the beach was not crowded. The pictures are an accurate representation of the house, and the sun porch is absolutely lovely! With the windows open and fan on, you get a great breeze, so you can enjoy it any time of day.

We've rented quite a few houses at various beaches along the North and South Carolina coast, and this is the first time we found a place we will definitely rent again!
