“Wonderful beach retreat!”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2016

My husband and I absolutely LOVED our stay at this property! Diane and Bobby are terrific hosts and have thought of everything to make this a comfortable beach house. It's clean, well equipped, just the right size, a comfy bed, and the screened porch is awesome! You can't beat the location... located on a quiet residential street, a short walk from the beach access and restaurants. We're so happy that we found this place!

“Adorable Studio!”

Reviewed 19 May 2016

The little snapper was perfect for our North Carolina honeymoon. Everything was clean, the bed was insanely comfortable, and the beach was just a five minute walk away! Lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance as well. Diane is hands down the sweetest person we've ever met, and we will definitely stay at one of her properties next summer. Loved it!!!

Owner's reply: Thanks you two! You were great guests!

“Great location”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2015

Nice for a couple great location, close to everything, walk to beach. Owner very easy to deal with. Would have liked perhaps some beach chairs so bring some other wise had all we needed. Pet friendly and there is a great dog daycare close .. The Dog House we used it everyday..

“Unique and comfy”

Close walk to the beach - very inviting and comfortable for us including our lab! I would love to stay again and gladly recommend.

“Loved the Lil' Snapper”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2015

We stayed at the Lil' Snapper for one week and absolutely loved it. The place was very clean and cozy. It was just the right amount of space for two people and our dog. Very close to beach access - we walked every day. I would recommend this place to my friends/ family and plan on trying to stay here or in another property of Diane's again this year.

Owner's reply: You two were a pleasure to host. I look forward to seeing you again this year!

“Lil Snapper”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2014

We loved our stay at Lil' Snapper! The place was clean and well decorated. We were just minutes from the water and the neighborhood was quiet.

Owner's reply: You were great too! Please come visit again!

“Great beach hideaway”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2014

A great and charming spot. The description is beyond accurate and Diane was a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely be back. Due to the rain over the course of two days the back porch was definitely our favorite hangout. We like to cook and found the kitchenette hospitable to a quick post beach meal. The day bed sleeper was perfect for my 11 year old and ideal for a post beach afternoon nap and boobtube. A great and affordable rental for couples with a pooch or a kid. The family upstairs was unnoticeable so no worries about privacy.

I loved staying at the Lil' Snapper. It has a large open living space that my dogs and I enjoyed, they had plenty of room to play and relax. Another great feature of this property is the screened in back porch, it was nice to sit out there in the evenings with my dogs. Diane and her sister are very nice people, I will always stay at one of her awesome properties!! I look forward to staying at the Lil' Snapper again. Thank you, Victoria

Owner's reply: Thank you for your repeat visits! You are a terrific guest!

“New I was at the Beach!”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2013

The moment I walked through the door I new I was at the beach! The property was nice and roomy and well equipped. I am so thankfull for the owner's willingness to allow dogs. I would recommend this property to everyone.

Owner's reply: Thank you Cynthia! It is pet owners like you that make it an easy decision to allow pets. Suzie is very sweet and you very thoughtful.

“Stay at the Beach”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2013

My husband and I had a great vacation at the LIL SNAPPER. Close to everything. My husband walked across the street to the beach to fish early in the morning. Diane is super and makes herself available for advice on where to go and what to see. She is a warm person and makes you feel welcome. The unit was clean and well equiped for all our needs. We will definitely be going back to one of Diane's properties. Thank you for helping us have a wonderful vacation. Janet and Steve (Sprinkles, too) .

Owner's reply: You two were a dream to host! Thank you! As it turns out I have September open - my off season person can not come until October. Come on down!

Diane was a great host, we appreciated her hospitality and willingness to make our stay great. Short walk to beach made this place very convenient!
May 2012

A nice little place in a great location! Only a 5 minute walk to the beach, close to restaurants, and everything you need is right there. The house is fully outfitted with sheets, cookery, plates, cups, cutlery, oven, stove, microwave, fridge, & coffee maker. Only know that the property is 1 large room & bathroom. It is an open floor plan. Diane was an attentive host and made sure our experience was good, we will likely return to this property.
