Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 8 had a wonderful time here. Rented both floors, old folks downstairs and the kids upstairs. Kitchen very adaquate, everything worked, washer & dryer got a work out. Most time spent on beach, short walk, plenty of space. Bench at the end of the walk made it great to sit out in the nite and watch the subermarine races with my lady. Will return someday, deposit refunded fast.

Love the Glass Parrott

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the condo, it was just a short walk to the beach, close to stores and restaurants. The condo was very clean and comfortable. Although we didn't have a chance to meet the owners, they were very good communicating by email. I highly recommend the Glass Parrott and hope to vacation there again next summer with my entire family. Being able to rent the upper and lower will work perfectly for our family.

Thanks for everything Al & Ann

Very nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and 2 year old boy in June 2012 and we liked this property. Close to the beach, a trolley and beach chairs are provided. The rear yard is fenced in so we were able to let our son run around. It is in a very quiet residential area so very little traffic or noise (or none at all), but only a short walk or drive to the main shopping area. The beach is wonderful. Owners very helpful (and live next door), and inside everything is clean and tidy. Would definately stay here again if/when we were looking for somewhere to stay in Atlantic Beach.

Great Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cottage by the beach. We had an awesome time!! The cottage is cute, clean and one short block from the beach - you can walk there in a minute. Everything is just like it is listed.

The owners Ann and Al were extremely friendly and helpful, yet non-invasive. Received my deposit back within a few days. Really nice people.

The beach was pretty and very clean. Atlantic Beach is easy to get around. We went Shark fishing thru Captain Stacy's and had a great time - even myself who is NOT a fan of Fish in any aspect (3 of the 4 in our party actually caught one - including me).

Would definately refer others to the Glass Parrot and hopefully someday soon we will make it back.

Thank you Ann and Al for making our first trip to a North Carolina Beach a pleasant experience.

Great Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage! Very clean and nicely decorated. The owner was very helpful and nice, but not intrusive on us at all! Not a long walk to the beach and they provide a cart to carry your beach chairs, very nice touch! We will definitely be adding this to our list of place to come back to!

Very Pleasant, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant clean cottage with all amenities. Property is located on a quiet residential dead-end street just a stones throw from a beautiful beach. Owner provides a garden cart for <1 minute walk to ocean. Owners are pleasant and helpful but not intrusive. Our cat enjoyed the stay too! We would be glad to stay again..
