Area Information
Cross Snow's Cut Bridge onto Pleasure Island and breathe a sigh of relief. You're in paradise! This place is unspoiled by all the traffic and high-rise condos of other area beaches. Also there is beach access up and down the island at the end of nearly every street. All this and more but most important - our beautiful WIDE AND CLEAN beaches are all within a few short blocks and easy walking distance from the cottage.

Are you into fishing? Check out Carolina Beach’s charter fishing fleet. The town also offers top of the line cruise boats and fun and shopping at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. There are fine restaurants, family restaurants, or just grab a slice of pizza at the boardwalk and get back on the beach. Also don't forget this is the home of the famous Britt's dounuts!

Ft. Fisher and the NC Aquarium are only 4 miles away. Or take a Ferry from Ft. Fisher to Southport for lunch at Provisions - a must do for local flavor.

Historic Wilmington is within a 20 minute drive and has many attractions such as antebellum mansions, horse-drawn carriage tours to view these homes, fine dining, golfing, shopping, and the USS North Carolina Battleship. Some other attractions include the Children's Museum, Cape Fear Museum, and tours of the Screen Gems Movie Studios where One Tree Hill, Dawson's Creek and numerous movies have been filmed.

thank you Diane for our lovely stay at the cottage. So homey and comfy it felt like we were staying at a friends home. we have stayed many places, but yours is unique. there is no place quite like it. maybe next year we can stay longer, there is so much we did not get to do.

Perfect Getaway!

The cottage provides everything necessary for a fantastic beach stay. Clean, quaint, private and comfortable. A wonderful relaxing respite with great weather and adequate beach access. Diane Fergerson was accommodating and eager to make sure we had everything we needed. Definitely will book again next year!

Perfect Again!!

This is Joan and my's second trip to this property. Just like last year, everything was awesome. Diane is so easy to work with. Once again, the dogs had the best time and we all enjoyed the beach (Freeman Park), and the dog parks in the area in Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Wilmington. You will not find a better place to stay if you want great accommodations at a very reasonable price. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Diane Ferguson

Owner's reply:

Thanks to you two - you are the kind of guests that make this business so rewarding. See you next year!

Wonderful as always!

Our experience was wonderful as always! Diane has such wonderful properties( I've lived in 3 of them!) Any questions or needs that arise are promptly handled. The cottages are decorated perfectly for the beach area, each having its own "flavor". We will be back!

Diane Ferguson

Owner's reply:

Angelia and Bill - Thank you for spending the last 4 years with us for the month of July. You remain some of my favorite guests, you are always happy and willing to have a good time. Thank you for making our place so joyous.

My Stay at The Cottage

It was a great place to stay because we felt as comfortable as if we were at home.The location was where you were within walking distance from the beach and the Boardwalk.The Cottage was one of the best places we have ever stayed at while at the beach. James White

Key West in Carolina Beach

Quiet, comfortable, clean and cozy describes The Cottage in Carolina Beach. It is a wonderful place to unwind and regenerate. It is not one of your cramped apartments along the shore, but a roomy unit in a neighborhood setting with a yard and trees all around. The Cottage comes completely furnished and is equipped with all the essentials, including in the kitchen and bath, to make you comfortable for a short or a long stay. Pet-friendly which is hard to find at many beach rental locations. I highly recommend this property for your beach vacation.

Diane Ferguson

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your appreciation of our Cottage! You have summed up the place perfectly.

Review of Cottage Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage. The yard is perfect for a pet and the porch is great for morning coffee. Carolina Beach is awesome and great restaurants and beach within working distance. We look forward to another visit. Thanks to Diane Ferguson for providing a great vacation spot.

Cozy Cottage

This is a cozy cottage within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. It had everything we needed for a three night stay -- efficient kitchen, nice bath, cozy den, comfortable bedroom and private yard area. We would highly recommend it.


Chattanooga. TN

Colorful happy place

I decided to make my move form the Outer Banks to Chattanooga a mini vacation. I was exhausted and wanted to relax comfortably near the beach before heading inland. I stayed at the cottage for a week in May after being in the adorable Lil' Snapper the week before. I loved it. The cottage is bright, cheerful, and very comfortable. The screened in porch was lovely in the evenings with a glass of wine. Dante, my cat was quite comfy and happy there as well. I could walk to the beach and shops from both places which was nice. Wilmington is not far away, so I stocked up on goodies at Trader Joes. Diane and Barry are sweethearts and very welcoming. I was a little sad to leave. One of these days, I will visit made me want my own colorful beach cottage. But in the meantime, I know where to go to feel like I have one of my own.

Very friendly owners. The place had everything I needed, and it was very clean! I will definitely be back again this year.

Although Joan did not stay at the Cottage but at the Old TIme Beach House I appreciate your review. I clean these places myself and I know what good care you took of our house. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you again.

Loved the beach bungalow

I cant believe such a wonderful vacation is already over. We enjoyed the cottage so much, as did our dogs. The yard was a great bonus for them. They were able to run and play any time they wanted. The location could not have been better since it was walking distance to the beach and some excellent restaurants. Just a suggestion....the Thai Restaurant was superb. My grandchildren who visited us there on a daily basis really enjoyed the playground that was only a block away. It made for some really great photo ops. The kitchen was very well equipped and even had some cookie sheets that I used to make cookies on the rainy days for my grandaughter. Our only complaint was the heating and air conditioner was difficult to understand how to control it. It was centigrade instead of farenheit. I would definately recommend this little cottage for a home away from home experience and hope to use it again for future visits back to NC to visit my grandchildren. Thanks to Bobby and Diane's caretaker Erin for all her help.

Obadiah{my Boston Terrier} and I really got some 'down time' while vacationing in this little cottage. Everthing little amenity was prepared so neatly; the location to Carolina Beach restaurants, bay area, stores, and beach access. Peaceful neighborhood.....comfortable bed....WiFi...cooked on the electric grill{}. The hostess was there to meet me when I arrived!!! Will be telling my cirlce of friends and relatives about this great vacation time :-)

Orange Oasis!!

This cozy cottage had everything we needed and more. It's a great place to get some R&R. It's decorated in warm and inviting manner. The washer/dryer is a big plus. What a treat to return home with clean clothes! We really enjoyed coffee on screened in porch and walking to some of the local spots for dinner. We are very happy that we were able to take our Lil Tibetian Terrier "Zoey" along with us! We all were SO very comfortable in the cottage...made it hard to leave!! It was a pleasure meeting Diane & Bobby. They were great. Thanks to both of them for the time and care they've put into this "Orange Oasis". We VERY much look forward to our next visit the them!!!!! Highly recommended!!!!

fantastic beach cottages

As soon as I saw this place online, I knew it was where I wanted to stay. I don't go anywhere overnight w/o my two dogs, and the large, nicely landscaped yard, I knew, would make them feel right at home. The cottage had everything we needed, It was clean, cool, comfortable and spacious with plenty of sitting areas outside. The exterior rope lighting lining the boardwalk was lit at night creating an attractive and peaceful ambiance. Bobby is an excellent craftsman and Diane is a wonderful decorator, and the two of them together have created a place that is appealing to the eye and to the pocketbook. I'm kinda picky and notice everything, and one thing I noticed in particular about this place is how neatly it's painted on the inside, and how carefully the items have been selected to utilize the space that's available. The day we left, Diane was there getting the Wee Bungalow adjacent to the Cottage ready for incoming guests, so we checked it out, too - another well-equipped, beautiful place to relax (the Wee Bungalow has a great outdoor sitting area and only ONE step and you're in. Perfect for humans and pets w/ physical limitations). I don't know if this review will get read in its entirety, but I can't say enough good things about 213 Lumberton Ave and I still have 1200 characters left to try! Bottom line - you have to check it out for yourself. If you love the beach but don't care for all the sand and traffic, this is your place. Lots of great restaurants and a grocer withing walking distance, ample parking at the house, and there's a little park literally a few houses down the street. The locals are friendly and Diane is the best! We're planning a return trip just as soon as we can work it out.

The property itself is lovely. It is in a great location. Every thing was nice and clean. We can not express how much we loved our all too short stay. We will stay here again.

Thomas Nielsen


The cottage is great

Very well maintained, and clean, with lots of fresh towels, washer dryer, dishwasher, big fridge and freezer. Cable TV and internet, a fully functional place ofr up to 3 people. Very close to the beach. A place we hope to visit again soon.

Jennifer Mullins Cleveland

My husband and I have stayed at almost all the hotels at Carolina Beach. This cottage by far was the best place we have ever stayed. It is close to all the resturants and nightlife! We loved being able to grill and cook dinner for ourselves...we saved so much money. The biggest plus was being able to bring our dogs with us. They had a great time exploring!

Nicole Sabourin

Lovely, cozy vacation spot

We really enjoyed our time at the beach cottage, and our dog did too!

Diane Ferguson

Owner's reply:

Thank you Nicole, I hope you will come back again at the end of the season to enjoy our off season period. Lesser rates and fewer people make it a great time to enjoy our beaches.

It was a pleasure hosting you!

Just what I was looking for!

The Beach Cottage was the perfect place for our families little spring retreat! I was looking for something eclectic and pet-friendly, this place was perfect! Our golden retriever loved the back yard, and we enjoyed the screened porch as well as the deck. Perfectly appointed, this cute cottage also provided linens, towels, etc. which made our travels so much easier! Thanks for sharing your home!

Stephanie Davis

Asheville, NC

Great Place

This was a perfect retreat for us and our puppy. It was very nice and clean. It is within walking distance to plenty of the areas attractions but is just off the beaten track. This was perfect for us because it set the stage for a relaxing vacation. The owners were very nice and had great recommendations for area attractions. We will definitely be visiting here again!

Stephanie Davis

Asheville, NC USA

Quaint and Quiet

Cute cottage, nice yard, very private feeling and while close enough to walk to the beach it was far enough away to offer peace and quiet. The cottage was a perfect spring retreat. The owners were great as well, they had great recommendations and super friendly. One beach they recommended was Fort Fisher, because our pup was allowed there. This was such a beautiful, uncrowded beach that both us and our furry friend love. We had a wonderful stay and plan on coming back again!

Joe Miller

Winston Salem, NC

Great stay for a great deal

We had a fantastic time. True, this was not an ocean front property but it also was not ocean front prices, far from it. Just a few blocks from the beach and down the road from Freeman park, where we like to go anyway. The cottage was quaint, nicely furnished, appliances seemed pretty new, recent remodeling. The property owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. All this and dog friendly. We will definitely be doing a lot more business with these property owners and encourage our friends as well.

Grandma M&M and Grandpa Fred loved the cottage

We had a wonderful experience at the cottage with the grandchildren. Our two year old grandson said, "Let's go to the orange beach cottage." Our seven year old granddaughter wanted us to stay the rest of the summer. :)))


Apex, nc

Cute and affordable

We had a great time at the cottage. We opted to drive to Kure Beach instead of walking or driving to Carolina beach because Kure Beach has free parking and less beach traffic. It only takes 7min to drive there. The cottage was clean, well decorated, and private. Next time we will definitely be bringing the dogs! The only issue is there are some very friendly neighboring cats that we loved, but I'm nervous about our dogs near them. Overall great experience and we will be back.

My husband and I stayed here for our babymoon. I was 6 months pregnant and loved how close we were to everything, I walked almost everywhere. It was a great escape and had everything we needed to just relax and feel like a home away from home. We even made some of our meals there so we didn't have to go out to eat every time. Will definitely make this place to return many times over.

winter rental...just like home!

I rented the "orange cottage" from October to February while transitioning to a new home. With all of my belongings in storage the cottage offered everything I needed to feel right at home! Once you are tucked away in paradise you will feel cozy and safe, within walking distance of restaurants, stores and of course the quiet winter beach! My black lab Sophia gives it 5 barks! HIGHLY recommend for long term rental! Diane and Bobby are the BEST!

cozy seaside cottage

The cottage was decorated in a variety of bright, cheerful colours. Amenities were in good working order and the owner most accommodating. A short walk from the beach, the cottage is located on a quiet side street and has a warm, welcoming feel. Perfect for one or two people, this property was good value for the money. I would stay here again.

Nice retreat

The property was exactly as described - we had a really relaxing stay. Having a washer & dryer and internet access were definite pluses. The bed was firm so if that's your preference, you'll enjoy. The owner was very amiable and made us feel welcome.

Cool! Cool! Cool!

Cozy, comfortable, well appointed and festive! This was the best place we stayed at so far on Carolina Beach!Excellent value! Semi-secluded back yard with a wonderful outdoor private shower great for chillin'. The boardwalk to the bungalow entrance is reminiscent of the Grand Strand. A lovely stroll across the street and you're on the beach! Activities galore! -sun, surf, charter fishing, dining, shops, and the carnival! Hosts Diane and Bobby were wonderfully accomodating and attentive to our needs. Thanks Di & Bobby for your southern and gracious hospitality. You bet we'll be back!

Worcester, MA

Surpassed all expectations!

We stayed here for 5 days and loved every minute of it. We came down to get married away from all the expectations and obligations with so many friends and family back home. This place made it perfect! We felt welcome and didn't want to leave. Diane and Bobby are great people and have done a fantastic job! We are definitely coming back!!!


Raleigh, NC

Didn't want to leave!

Just spent 3 nights in The Cottage and loved it! It is the perfect place for relaxing and getting away. Only a short walk to many restaurants, shopping, and the beach. I will be back soon, hopefully for a week!

Low Key

What a great, low key, romantic getaway place this was. My husband and I eloped to Wilmington and spent 3 wonderful peaceful days here! Clean, quiet and all the ameneties you could want or need. Diane was wonderful and you can bet we will be back again! Thanks so much Diane!


Chapel Hill, NC

Adorable Getaway

We stayed for five days, Wednesday-Sunday. We had a great time! The cottage was very nice and everything we needed was there. Pet friendly. Very quiet and peaceful but close enough to everything to walk or bike if you choose to. We'll definitely be coming back!




Diane Was Very Accomodating To Let Us Rent Out Her Cottage For One Night (normally This Is Not Worth The Hassle Of Renting It Out.) The Place Was Exactly What We Were Looking For. Agreeing With A Previous Post, A Little Hike To Beach If You're Carrying A Lot Of Items, Otherwise It's Not Bad At All. "not Beach Front, Not Beach Front Prices" Said It Best On The Website. Place Was Clean!!!! Pet Friendly Was Great, Beaches Are Not Unfortunately. Our Newfoundland, Ralph Endulged For A Bit Anyway ;) Will Definiately Come Back. Both Diane And Bobby Are Truly A Pleasure! Thanks!

Walt and Annie DeHart

A Great Memory

We really enjoyed out time in this secluded cottage. The back yard was a perfect plave for our Corgi to run and play, and we were close enough to the beach and restaurants to make everything special. Bobby and Diane treated us like family, something we will never forget. Thanks for the memories!

Dianne Harrill

Salem, VA

Nice little apartment

We actually stayed at the apartment owned by the same owner. Both were very nice places. We stayed in the apartment. It was spotless and comfortable. The bed was clean and comfortable enough to over sleep everyday. We cooked breakfast and made a sandwich for lunch in the nice little kitchen. The shower was clean and had ample water pressure and hot water. Beware though if your trying to take your workaholic husband away from everything the television, cellphone and internet work great. The only thing nicer than the home was the couple that owned it.

Great Beach House for Two!

This little house was fantastic! Newly renovated with nice hardwood floors, screened porch to escape the NC mosquitoes, comfy couches and creative interior and exterior design. As a graphic designer I appreciated that. I loved the electric grill even though I'm religiously a charcoal man. I came toting a small dog which I wouldn't recommend because the local beaches are not pet friendly (on or off leash). You must travel to Ft. Fisher about 10 minutes away. Also, it's a pretty good hike with beach gear if you plan on walking to the closest beach, I would rec. hopping in the car and parking at one of the public parking areas if you are carrying more than a few things. Boardwalk BINGO was a blast, make sure you grab some Britt's Doughnuts while you are there! To sum it up, great house, great location, fun beach and plenty of activities and shopping between Wilmington and Southport.


Raleigh, NC USA

Great beach alternative!

This property is a gem! Very clean, very modern, but quirky and fun! Great location. All kitchen appliances provided, but bring all other food items left behind. Go around the corner to Havana's for dinner of fresh seafood!

Our Favorite Place on the Beach!!

We stayed at this charming little place on short notice and thanks to the flexibility of Bobby and Diane (the owners) we were able to enjoy a wonderful last minute vacation! The place was very clean, cute as a button and was so comfortable the we didn't want to leave. Only a short walk to the beach, and some good restaurants. We will definitely be back again soon!

Joe Rumsey

Chapel Hill, NC

Comfy and Cool-Sure to visit again

From the fully equipped kitchen to the sun-soaked back yard and shady screened porch, this place offers alot of advantages over hotel rooms in the area that cost just as much or more. We loved the hardwood floors and the huge closet that allowed us to stash all our luggage out of sight to make the cottage feel even more like home. Located less than a block from the main road, it's an easy walk to several restaurants and attractions, and the beach. The owners, Diane and Bobby are very helpful and friendly, and they can expect us back soon.
