Guestbook comments from the owner

...my brother, sister and I loved staying at Calypso cottage. From the moment we walked thru the front door if felt like staying at a friend's home. My brother said it wasn't like a rental, it was like coming to your second home. I put one of my cherished Sunset Beach sand dollars in the glass vase with the other sea shells. I hope people will enjoy seeing it and NOT take it! Back in the 1980's, the beach was littered with sand dollars and if you got lucky you found whole ones.

Charming Cottage...ABSOLUTLY! My husband and I stayed in this lovely little cottage on a recent visit to Southport. Perfect location on a quiet side street but within a few minutes walk to the main street shops, restaurants and waterfront. We felt at home immediately. Very comfortably furnished and appointed with everything you need. We will return for sure!

As soon as we walked in the door we knew we had made the right choice. It felt like were were walking into a relatives home. It was very comfortable and clean. We will rent this cottage again when we vist South Port. We were able to walk easliy all over the downtown and to restaurants. We loved walking throught the cemetaries that were close by. It was a very short drive to Oak Island and several wonderful golf courses.

Calypso Cottage is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
This was the most wonderful vacation I have ever had! It all started when I walked in the door of Calypso - it was like I was coming home! The house was immaculate, the furniture and decor absolutely beautiful! Everything we could have asked for was provided. We fell in love with Southport and even did a little house hunting of our own while there. The quaint shops, the fabulous restaurants - who could ask for more! Our goal is to move to the area within the year. We definitely will stay at Calypso again in the coming months and would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a stress free getaway!

Lovely home! It was clean and perfect for a holiday weekend getaway. The home is very nicely furnished and equipped with everything we needed during our stay. I highly recommend Calypso and will likely rent it again.

Location

Activity and Interests

Spring and early summer is nesting season for thousands of white ibis on Battery Island -- right across from Southport's waterfront park. You'll also see herons, egrets, oystercatchers, and the occasional gannet. Bird lover paradise!

Sidewalks & bike paths for all to enjoy. Walk to local shops and excellent restaurants. Fish from the pier. Watch the boat traffic and birds. Historic sites and parks abound.

For beach goers, - Oak Island is only about seven miles away. Both Fort Fisher Beach and Bald Head Island are a scenic ferry ride away. Nightlife, shopping and restaurants of Wilmington are only a 30-minute drive.

Boat access is convenient at the Southport Marina with boat slips available. The

Calypso has room to park your boat if daily launch is preferred.
