About the area

The property is three short blocks to the beach. Along the way to the beach you will pass marina and the boardwalk with shops and bars and restaurants yet once you are over the dunes you would never know all that was there. There is a fun restaurant at the end of Lumberton Avenue (one block) called Tangerine Caribbean Grill good destination for live music and dancing. On the other side of the marina is another good restaurant called Harbor Master where you can sit outside and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a cocktail while watching the fishing boats come in and the pelicans diving for thier meals. There is the beautiful Carolina Beach Lake / Park to jog around or rent a paddle boat. Every Sunday there is a free movie playing at the park and Thursdays the fireworks display on the beach. Other Area Fun: N.C. Aquarium, Civil War Fort Fisher, Carolina Beach State Park, Fort Fisher-Southport Ferry, Historic Downtown Wilmington with its River Walk,shopping,and dining,etc. Don't for get the film studio tours - this is where One Tree Hill is filmed and the former home to Dawsons Creek.

My husband and I stayed here versus a hotel because of our dogs and their stress levels. Let me just say upon arrival my husband and I fell in love with this place. It's beautiful inside and out. My husband and I have agreed that this is the perfect vacation spot especially when traveling with pets. It's a home away from home with all the amenities. We look forward to next year.

Owner's reply: Thanks Sarah! We enjoyed hosting you!

My husband and I stayed in the Shabby Chic Islander with our older lab and we loved it. Bobby and Diane were the perfect hosts. We will definitely be back. If you are looking for a place to take your pet you should definitely check out their properties.

Owner's reply: Thanks you two! It was a pleasure to host you!

“Very lovely stay”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2016

The place was immaculate, very comfortable bed, Everything you need for the stay minus the food. Close to the beaches and great places to eat. Had a list of places near by that were dog friendly. Would definitely recommend this place.

“Great homebase for a beach vacation”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2015

The house is only 3 blocks from the beach and although its small, it offers a great place for 2 people and a dog (or 2) to stay, especially if your plan is to spend most of your time out and about rather than staying indoors.

“Perfect Place”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2015

The bungalow was a perfect spot to spend some time for our 15 year anniversary with our beagle London! Everything we needed was there and especially loved the comfy bed! Walked around the town which was so close and the owners were wonderful people to talk to as well! Would be a great place to stay with 2 other couples or friends who want to be together but each have their own private place to sleep. Thanks for the memories! The beach is awesome there as well!

“Cosy and convenient”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

My dogs and I very much so enjoyed our stay. The place is close to the beach and to several great restaurants, some of them dog-friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

“WOW!! Home Was Never Like This!!”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2015

It has been ten hours since we left the cottage, and WE WANT TO GO BACK!!! Such a charming place snuggled amongst shady trees lined with decks for shaking the sand off. The cottage is furnished with, well, the only word to use is "love". Diane and Bobby have shaped this "home away from home" with all the good stuff a truly good friend will offer another. Trust me, after your stay, you won't want to go back to reality. Truly peaceful and serene. In this bungalow, you can chose to party hearty or spend many quiet hours watching endless movies or reading great books. Thank you Diane and Bobby for being down-to-earth loving people. WBB!!! We'll Be Back!!!!

Owner's reply: It was a great pleasure to host the two of you. Thank you for your kind words and appreciation of our place. We look forward to having you back before long! Thanks!

This little cottage had everything you need. We had a great time! We was also able to bring our little four legged feller. We will be back next year counting down the days until we go back. If you are looking for a good place to get away I recommend this place. Diane and Bob are really good people.

Owner's reply: Thank you Donna and Kim! I look forward to seeing you three again. All the best!

“Stellar Brilliant”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

Absolutely brilliant-Di and Bob are Top of the Pops, and their cottages show their love and passion. Murphy, my golden retriever, thought that he was in heaven. I am sold on the area, not least of all because of my hosts' attention to everything imaginable-I have never felt this much at home in my life xoxoxo Just lovely place and people-Cathy and the Irish!

Owner's reply: Thanks Kate! When your Irish eyes are smilin' so are ours! You were a delight to host and we look forward to showing off more of what this little slice of heaven - Pleasure Island/Carolina Beach- has to offer. Di
