Reviews for this vacation apartment rental in Carolina Beach, North Carolina
October 26, 2014
Diane is a sweet heart... we arrived late with our dogs and they made us feel welcome and like we were part of the family...even after my wife lost the key to our cottage! Actually this was a business trip I was able to take the wife and dogs along and I would advise fellow business travelers to do the same... for less the the cost of a generic Hampton inn you can be a short walk to the beach and great selection of local seafood... it's like a mini vacation while getting paid. This property was wonderful and just amazing for our pets with a screened porch and lovely beach decor! Thanks again Diane and Bobby!

Wonderful place for pets! One of the best experiences we've ever had.Thanks Diane aand Bobby for the wonderful pet friendly place and making us feel like family! We will be back with our kids and grandkids staying in your bigger rental. Thanks for such a pleasant experience! !
I loved it!!!
September 19, 2014
Coco and I enjoyed our stay. We loved the screened in room and the pool. The place is so nice, and close to everything. We always stay at one of Diane's places when we travel to Carolina Beach! It is nice to be able to bring my dog along! Thank you for allowing dogs. We had a great time.
July 1, 2014
We didnt get to stay here because my daughter is very sick with a terninal diagnosis and we had to cancel. Just want to say how wonderful the owners are. Very understanding d a full refund. Great people!
June 2, 2014
What a wonderful vacation we had. Apartment was clean and comfortable, pool was great! Bed was very comfortable, plenty of towels, dish clothes, etc. All the conveniences of home without the work Nice screened in patio to relax at the end of the day, central air you can control in the apt. . Two blocks to everything Carolina Beach has to offer, we hardly used the car at all. Short drive to downtown Wilmington, Wrightsville, and ferry to South port Island. Owners very nice and attentive to your needs. If your traveling with your dog, its the perfect scenerio. Dog park 1/2 block down the street with clean up bag dispenser. My pug was the bell of the ball! Everyone was so nice . Will definitely come back, very pleased with our experience.
You have grasped this fabulous area perfectly. I could have not summed it up better.
You two were delightful to host. Your willingness to just relax and have a good time was so refreshing. I look forward to seeing you two again. Thanks for taking such good care of our place.
Y'all come back now .. Hear?

Spent one night at the Wee Bungalow and 3 nights here. Perfect for a couple or fantastic as a place if you just want a getaway by yourself!!!! Love Diane and Bobby and plan for many future visits in the coming years. Hoping to get a reservation for my birthday in August in The Cottage with them. You would not be disappointed! Beach close with good parking, umbrellas and chairs available for rent if you don't want the hassle of dragging yours down for the day. myself. Til then, I recommend and plan on staying with Diane many times to come! I stayed one night at her Wee Bungalow as I forgot to reserve Wed night when I made my original reservation. She called me first thing Thurs and was already hard at work cleaning this unit for me so I could get switched over as early in the day as possible so I could get settled in and on with my day. She always lets her guests know they can always reach her if they need anything and I tell you that it beats some of the fancy hotels I've stayed in... Brings back memories of childhood beach houses and that's amazing! Great, up to date LCD Tv and fantastic cable for those needed "down" times or late night movie. The only thing I would have changed about this unit is I like going to sleep to a tv and this lovely unit didn't have a bedroom tv... I admit I ended up falling asleep a couple of nights laying on the comfortable couch watching tv... Great screened in porch for relaxing, AC works great...kitchen set up with all you need!!! You'll love any of Diane's units!!!!

What a fabulous experience. The condo was beautiful, the view breathtaking, very clean, easy arrangements, everyone was kind. I have no complaints about this trip. From the booking to the checking out, everything was wonderful!
Restful and cozy
August 28, 2013
This was a great, quiet, and well-maintained apartment. Very clean. All the basics needed for meal prep. Small, but nicely arranged space. 10 minute walk to the beach. Loved having the pool to cool off after a hot day at the beach! Close to boardwalk activity, but far enough to not be disturbed by the noise. Diane was extremely helpful with suggestions and directions for nearby shops and restaurants. Thank you for a lovely getaway!
BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS
July 12, 2013
First and foremost we were able to take our four legged child. (14 year old Black Labrador). Diane was unbelievable with meeting our needs and her husband was ready to help whenever needed as well. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and all necessities were already provided. We will definitely be back and are very thankful for the experience. Thank you so much for all you did to make our vacation fantastic!! ;)

Great Getaway Spot!!
June 25, 2013
I recently enjoyed a girls' getaway with a friend of 20+ years and we had a great time at this property! The decorations and landscaping really do make you feel you've escaped to a tropical paradise. The screened-in porch is huge & lovely. And the property is in a quiet location. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The pool area is beautiful. Diane suggested the beach at Fort Fisher to us and it was wonderful!! It was so convenient, not crowded, and FUN that we didn't regret at all not having an oceanfront property. Carolina beach is a lovely place with enough to do if you want to stay in town, or close enough to many other sites if you want to explore. Diane is very friendly, responsive, and was flexible to meet our needs. One detail that might be helpful to know...there one step up into the bathroom area. It was not a detraction for us at all, but might be a concern for anyone with a significant knee or other mobility issue. This property is truly a jewel! Enjoy!
June 25, 2013
Highly recommend! We spent the weekend at the Tropical Beach Apartment. It was very clean and comfortable. The owner supplied linens and even paper towels, coffee filters, and toilet tissue. The vivid colors were energizing; the rooms were much prettier than the pictures tell. We really liked the privacy of the pool; it was in a fenced, nicely landscaped area. It was a close walk to the beach and shops. We loved the huge screened porch. It was breezy and shady, with fun eclectic decorations. Our dog sat out there with us, hoping to catch a glimpse of the cat! The owner went out of her way to accommodate us; she was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful stay. Cathy Chenoweth

Heaven at the beach!!!!!!
June 16, 2013
My girlfriend and I spent the last 3 nights with Bob and Diane and we did not want to leave. We both live in SE NC, and we wanted a get away. We took our bikes and had a Blast! Both of us worked half a day on Friday and then played the rest of the time. I cannot say enough good things about the accomadations and the host! The apt was clean, cozy and cute and I have never slept so well as in the Bedroom (aka the cave) The salt water pool has a lazy river built in. Everything you would ever need. We will be back! Thanks again, Ken and Sheila

June 10, 2013
We recently stayed at this adorable beach cottage/apt. Diane was wonderful to work with from the beginning to end. She was very attentive & helpful, giving great suggestions for seafood markets & beach access at Carolina & Kure Beach. The air conditioning was GREAT & privacy was wonderful. The grill was great along with a nice place to eat in the shade. We had a wonderful trip & highly recommend this place if looking for a place with privacy & coziness of home. It is a four-six block walk to the beach but Diane knows all the free parking spots so don't fret! The pool we didn't try but looked fantastic!

The best beach vacation I have in years!!!
August 20, 2012
Diane & Bob were the best. We got there early and had lunch and when we got to the house Diane as waiting for us. Got check in and kept on vacationing. Apartment was perfect and pool was heavenly. On of the most fun things we did was feed the cats especially BB. We have several cats and it made us miss them less because BB was always ready to share a meal with us. We loved it. Would definetely would go back, several times a year if we can, that is how much fun we had. I love th kitchen, we in facto only ate out twice because we used the grill provided. Again, LOVED it, LOVEDI it, LOVED it. Did I mention that we LOVED it. Thanks again for having us and we will be back soon. Mike and Melody
August 19, 2012
The location was within walking distance to the beach. Place was safe and quiet for a restful vacation. Diane and Bobbie were terrific hosts, very helpful, and friendly. Will come again.

Can't wait to go back!
July 16, 2012
This rental was absolutely perfect for my partner and I. We were only going to be at Carolina Beach for 2 days, and wanted something other than those sleezy hotels right by the water. This rental is cute, updated, CLEAN, air conditioned, and perfect for 2 people (3 if one sleeps on the couch). The rental owners live above, stay out of your way, but are more than willing to help, answer your questions, and give you some prime recommendations on local eats and the best beach spots. The ad says it's within walking distance to the beach, and that's true, but they were able to direct us to a part of the beach that's just a few minutes drive away, and way cleaner and less congested and had public parking. Can't wait to go back!
Lake Wylie, SC
Perfect start to a perfect vacation
July 11, 2012
My husband and I had a ten day vacation that started here in Carolina beach. We worked our way down the coast all the way to Hunting Island, stopping at several places along the way. This cozy little apartment was our favorite stop. It was colorful and very beachy with all the things we needed to make us feel at home. We were able to cook there if we wanted or walk to any of the many restaurants or pubs. The beach is nice and close enough to walk to. Diane and Bobby were very hospitable and available to answer any questions about th area. We hope to return soon.
Nice Place..Great Pool!!
July 6, 2012
My grandson and I spent a week in Carolina Beach and stayed at this apartment. Diane and Bobby were great to rent from. We had a couple of problems during our stay and they took care of them quickly. It is a great location. Close to the beach, board walk, aquarium, Ft. Fisher, Battleship NC and Wilmington. The pool was wonderful after being out in the heat and at the beach. Its very relaxing! I would highly recommend staying here.

We appreciated the intimate space of this apartment. It flows naturally .... provided the options we like best: FOOD: a decent ability to cook from scratch( market is close); WATER: shower pressure is great; pool; REST: tres comfortable duvet, low light/noise, comfortable bed. ACCESS: full media access we needed to research the area and stay in touch with home. It reminded us of Italy, where you re encounter each other, and yourself all the time just because you are doing real things together....everything is different...size, colour, temperature, and sensibility of scale... closer and really refreshing. Romantic too if you want it to be. We liked the euro air conditioning system that allowed us to control heat by degrees as we needed it by day or night. NIce. The apartment was ultra clean. Spotless really. Very nice. We love being near water, but are not beach people per se We photograph, explore, and junk collect . This area is a minefield for anyone interested in social realism. Walking out on the wharves to watch the fisher people was a favorite pastime for us.. Staying at the beach allows you to swim, gawk, and relax and stuff yourself with fresh seafood, while still being a close drive to the artistic and epicurean delights in Wilmington City close by. Its a perfect placement for those who want to do it all with little time.... D&B are interesting, intuitive people. They are well informed and expert hosts. They go beyond the call of duty to see to your needs because they are appreciative of what their guests bring to them as well. This is a rare commodity.
Clean, affordable, and fun design

The place is great for a couples getaway. Modern amenities, cool palm trees and super cool renters make this a place I will come back to.

Nice and Quiet
August 15, 2011
My wife and I vacation here the first and second week of August and it was grand. The owners who live above our rental were real gracious and hospitable. They made us feel like family. Albeit the heat index was crucifying which limited our beach activities during the day we enjoyed to comforts just like being at home. This is a great rental for a couple wanting to get away from it all.
July 11, 2011
Perfect for a quiet vacation - private, within walking distance of most everything that you need, dog beach a few minutes drive . . .
wonderful beach getaway spot
July 6, 2011
my girlfriend and i just stayed here with my two dogs. we loved the place! it's a great getaway spot - far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip and close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants and fun summer events of the boardwalk. diane was so friendly and helpful. the pool was a definite plus! we even had a few friends over for a BBQ one night and the outdoor entertaining space was fantastic! our dogs fully enjoyed themselves as well. the only issue we had was the cats upstairs. if your dogs are unfamiliar with or dislike cats - you might find it a bit daunting.

Great Vacation...Amazing Hosts!!
June 3, 2011
My girlfriend and I (and Capone...the dog) stayed here through Memorial Day Weekend. It was a perfect getaway! Diane and Bobby are genuinely nice people and great hosts! They were lifesavers, providing me with an Aloe Vera leaf to treat a slight sunburn after a day at the beach. Also, we had family take a day trip down for my girlfriend's birthday and Diane and Bobby were extremely welcoming. The apartment itself is colorful, fun and most importantly clean! I would recommend this rental to anyone, especially couples or friends looking for a relaxing beach vacation! We will definitely be back!!
Great place to stay!
May 23, 2011
Great location, cozy condo, pet friendly. My sister and I came to Carolina Beach for a long weekend away from the city-- this place was totally perfect for what we were looking for. Walking distance to the beach and boardwalk, awesome host (Thanks, Diane!!). Can't wait till our next visit!

"Wonderful Experience, would defintely recommend"
October 3, 2010
Our experience was great! Diane and Bobby Ferguson were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. We had two small dogs with us and they were treated like part of their family. We liked that the property was off the main strip but you could walk to shops and restaurants in just a few minutes. Really enjoyed the salt water swimming pool. My daughter does not get in the ocean so that worked out nicely. At the end of our trip, Bobby's friend, the talented Thomas Fitzpatrick, made a special personalized sign for my home in Virginia called "As the Crow Flies" which looks great on my home. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Very Nice and Cozy Spot
September 6, 2010
We very much enjoyed our stay at this adorable apt. It has so much character and charm. Its very nice to come back from the beach and get in the nice cool shaded pool. The owners are wonderful people and we really enjoyed meeting them. Its close to everything. Perfect little hideaway..Thanks so much..

Could'nt Have Been Any Better!
August 25, 2010
A great place to stay. Comfortable and cool. It was quite hot during our stay and the air conditioned apartment and pool were just the ticket. And the queen sized bed was heavenly. Within an easy distance to anything you need and far enough away form the hussle and bussle. Diane and Bobby were the best hosts ever. Great fun! Helpful with everything. Had a great stay and have a new friends as well. We will be traveling to the area in the future and will most definately will return to this tropical oasis.
Best Place Ever!!!
August 12, 2010
This was the best week I've had in a long while. The apartment was very comfy and cool. It was easy to settle in and feel "at home" for the five days I was there. Diane and Bobby are amazing. They were very welcoming, kind, and helpful...perfect hosts. I especially liked that this apartment was located in a quiet neighborhood just a short distance from the touristy bustle of the main drag. It was close enough to walk anywhere and far enough away to feel slightly removed from the crowds. Plus, the saltwater pool was heaven! Why stay at an overpriced, packed chain hotel on the beach when you can feel at home and undisturbed in this spectacular little casita? I highly recommend this place. Would be perfect for a couple's get away.
Highly Recommended Rental
July 20, 2010
My wife and I really enjoyed our one week stay. The very private pool was clean, and was quite refreshing to take a dip into after a long day at the beach. We took advantage of the pool everyday. The garden and tall trees surrounding the pool left you feeling as if you were in your own world, and provided ample shade anytime of the day. Diane and Bobby were gracious hosts who quickly answered any questions, provided us with items needed to make our stay more comfortable, and were relaxed and easy to get along with. The beach was just a short walk away, and as residents of Carolina Beach, both Bobby and Diane had good insight into where to eat, shop, and play. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen clean, and in good working order, and the gas grill perfect for grilling up fresh fish and vegetables from the market. If you enjoy a quiet getaway, cooking your own meals, a pool, and want accessibility to shopping, eating out, and stores that meet any need I'd highly recommend this rental.
June 22, 2010
My girlfriend and I were looking for a cost effective place to stay for our 1 year and came across this home. Everything was perfect from the location to how well it was taken care of! On top of that Diane and Bobby were extremely sweet and made us feel right at home. We had went to dinner one night and came back to find our towels hanging to dry for us that we had left outside. We are absolutely coming back! Brett and Melissa
June 20, 2010
Great place to stay! My wife and I stayed with our two dogs at this wonderfully maintained, beautiful property. Diane and Bobby are exceptionally friendly and a pleasure to deal with. They were attentive and helpful while respecting of our privacy. They made several great suggestions for places to visit. We'll definitely return to this little oasis.
Cute Beach Apartment!
June 1, 2010
We just got back from a long Memorial Day weekend at Bobby and Diane's. The apartment was cute, clean, and cozy! Diane and Bobby are two of the nicest people we have ever met, and they immediately make you feel at home. The apartment is close enough to walk to restaurants, entertainment, etc., without being in the fray of traffic. They were very helpful with info on getting around the island, if you do decide to venture furthur away. We missed seeing Diane when we left, so "Thanks again, Diane (and Bobby), for a wonderful stay!" Our little Chihuahua, my husband, and I all enjoyed our stay, and look forward to another visit!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here so much that we can't wait to go back. It was very serene and relaxing. The bed was comfortable. The pool and wireless internet was an added delight. Diane and Bobby are very friendly and they made our stay there very comfortable. The apartment is very cozy and romantic. It a perfect hide away for any couple.
Great place to stay
May 17, 2010
We were only able to stay one night, but we loved it. Diane and Bobby are really nice people and made us feel very welcome. They have the most beautiful hidden garden where everything was in bloom and it was so peaceful and quiet. We are planning to go back in August and can't wait.
A Little Paradise

Very clean and comfortable. Full accommodations. Diane and Bobby are excellent and welcoming hosts who appreciate your presence. The salt water pool is very relaxing on a sunny day with nice landscaping surrounds. Great, great option if your staying in Carolina Beech.

I had a wonderful time at the rental....by myself! I went to do some work and relax. It was perfect! The pool was wonderful! Great location. Comfortable, welcoming, and clean. Thanks to Diane and Bobby! Carmen

What a wonderful place to stay while vacationing at the beach! Our Family had such a nice time while staying here, felt like home. Close to beach and anything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay, we will be back again! Thanks!
Great for a place for two! =)
July 28, 2009
What a nice place to have a relaxing vacation. Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights and it was perfect! Diane and Bobby were so friendly and made us feel welcome right away. The pool was a perfect for us to cool off after being on the beach all day. This apartment is very clean and within walking distance to whatever we needed. We did not drive any where which was great! We hope to stay agian next year!
Geat place to stay!
July 23, 2009
Great place with everything you need, bathroom, kitchen, tv, patio with grill and seating. Friendly, yet rusive owners with a lot of tips on where to go in town. We (my wife, 3 yr old and me) really enjoyed it and would stay there again. A++++++++++
Adorable Getaway for Two!
July 3, 2009
This charming little apartment is the perfect size for two people looking to relax at the beach! The bright colors, immaculate kitchen, and cute bathroom only emphasize how much care was put into designing a place for two. The bed was very comfortable, and they even had extra comforters and pillows, which we used! You could easily walk to the beach if you wanted, however on vacation and lazy, we opted to drive, and paid only $5 for a whole day of parking. As two young women in our 20s, we felt very safe in the neighborhood, and I walked my girly dog outside at all times of the night. The owners were gracious, and kept the whole place clean and updated. While we did not use the salt pool, it looked lovely and on our next visit we definitely will take advantage! Diane, we loved staying at your place, and will return next year for a longer visit, with Twiggy in tow as well!
Wow! What a fantastic bargain. Our hosts were so freindly and accomadating. They provided us with a lot of area information not to mention ice and anything else we needed! Everythig is close to this property - if you can't walk it you can park all day by the beach for $5.00!!
Thanks you two for everything!!
