“Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 16 Jul 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!

Owner's reply: Great comments on the beach! Thank you for the beach chairs and umbrellas you contributed they will be waiting for your return! Thanks for being great guests as well.

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!!”

Reviewed 6 Jul 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.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your wonderful energy you two brought to our place. Loved the gift you left - I put it in the kitchen and hung the pot holders on it. Please come back again!

“Real Thing”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2012

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.

“wonderful beach getaway spot”

Reviewed 6 Jul 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!!”

Reviewed 3 Jun 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!!
