What have others said about our house?
- Hi! We just got home earlier today from
your lovely beach house. We LOVED it! We had such a nice time there.
The weather was really nice (hot!) and it was sooo peaceful. We really
enjoyed ourselves. We have a 20 month old daughter and it was so nice to
have a "home away from home" p.s. the
decorating is FABULOUS! I assume that your wife did the decorating, and
if so, please let her know that it was appreciated. Everything flowed so
well together from room to room. Very nice! (Email from Michelle D.
- Thanks for renting us your fabulous beach home. We
intend on renting again soon! (Email from Bill M, 2002) (Note: They visited
again for a second weekend within one month, and then a week early in 2003!)
- Your home is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay.
Loved the seagulls, birds, and turtles. (guest book comment 2002)

Enjoyed the beach everyday. (guest book comment 2002)

and friends created quite a few memories. (guest book comment
- Thanks for letting us rent out the house this past weekend.
We had such a great time and would really love to go back next year and stay
for a week with our family. We'd love to start a tradition. (Email from
Kristi I, May 2003)
- Truly a fabulous beach house - our second time staying
here, and we plan on making it an annual thing! Thank you for
providing such a quaint and comfortable getaway for us! The twins
LOVED the turtles . . . and the beach . . . and the pool . . . and the owl
outside . . . and the piggy cookie jar! (guest book comment, June
- What a GREAT place! It's even nicer than we imagined
from the pictures on the internet. It was so nice to have everything
we needed in the kitchen plus be able to use the movies, games, etc.
Thanks SO much! The decor is AWESOME! The kids loved
everything. The turtles especially were a big hit. Hope we can
come back next year! (guest book comment, June 2003)
- Awesome beach house! Best one here! We had an
absolutely wonderful, relaxing time with beautiful weather and lots of
fun! (guest book comment, July 2003)
- The time we spent here was great! We had such a great
time going to the beach almost everyday. The pool was a nice change
from the beach. Sitting out on the deck in the rocking chair drinking
coffee was nice too! Our 3-year old loved playing with the animals in the
toy bucket in the closet; if we had known about them sooner she would have
played with them every day! The beach house was everything and more
than we expected! We loved the decorating! Can't wait to come
back! (guest book comment, July 2003)
- I just wanted to thank you for the use of your gorgeous beach house this
week! I didn't have a chance to write in your guest book, but I wanted
you to know how much we enjoyed ourselves. Evelyn (our 2 year old) was enthralled
with both the house (which she kept proclaiming as "boo-tee-ful")
and the collection of plastic animals in the closet of the upstairs kid's
bedroom. We had to have a special goodbye ceremony in their honor, and
she was very sad to leave them behind. She told us on the way home
that she'd rather have stayed longer in the beach house, because it was
boo-tee-ful, while our own house, alas, was not. :-) ( Email from Mindy
D, September 2003)
- Wow! Great beach house! Great amenities! How
wonderful to swim in the ocean in October! We had a great time and
appreciate the accommodations you've provided. We look forward to
returning sometime in the future. (guest book comment, October 2003)
- Many Thanks for renting to us - the weekend was
wonderful! We so enjoyed your beach home. Very beautiful, yet
functional and "kid friendly." Thank you for the attention
to detail and ALL of the little extras. We hope to return for a
longer stay soon. (letter from Ali C, October 2003)
- Just wanted to say thank you for a great weekend. We
all loved your house and it was the perfect place for a ladies weekend.
The weather was beautiful so we got a lot of scrapbooking done, and got some
sun too :-) (email from Diane S, May 2004)
- We had a GREAT time this year and we already signed up to
go back next year! (email from Kristi I, June 2004)
- Kelli and I just want to thank you for allowing us to enjoy
your beautiful home in Ocean Isle. We were blessed with nice weather and the
accommodations were awesome. Our kids were impressed too. (email from Tag K,
- Just a quick email to let you know that we loved your
wonderful beach home! We had a great time. The furnishings are
so nice and clean!! We have stayed in condos before where we did not
want to use the cookware. Our 6 year old learned to "boogie"
board with the boards she found in the closet and the wagon was definitely a
life savor with 3 kids under the age of 6. We are hoping to reserve
the house next summer as well. (email from Wendy H, July 2004)
- Thanks for the use of your beach house in Ocean Isle.
The house was great and we had a really wonderful weekend. Would love
to rent from you again sometime :-) (Note from Carissa C., March 2005)

vacation! (Guest book comment, June 2005)
- We had such a wonderful time here!! We would love to
come back again - it was great!! (Guest book comment, June 2005)
- A perfect week where we turned our minds off, threw away
the wrist watches and just enjoyed each other. Can't wait to come
back. (Guest book comment, June 2005)
- We are back and had a wonderful time. It was a perfect
week. We followed your suggestions on your website. It was a huge help since
we had no idea where to go for dining. Stars cafe is now Cinelli's. Still a
wonderful place to eat for good Italian. And our last night we went to Capt.
John's in Calabash. We took a gamble because we weren't sure which one would
be the best. After reading the history of the restaurant and tasting the old
family recipes, it was a good choice. Great crab cakes. Thanks for sharing
your cottage. (Email from Kim M, August 2005)
- The house is very pretty! The best family gathering
we have had in a long time! (Guest book comment, August 2005)
- What a beautiful house and awesome vacation. It felt
like home away from home as we rested and relaxed. (Guest book
comment, September 2005)
- We had a great time here at Ocean Isle. Your house was more
than we expected Lots of games, great Onion Book (LOL). Big, big house. Thank
you for sharing your home. This was our first trip to NC and we will be back
next year. (Guest book comment, June 2006)
- Thanks so much for sharing your house with us!! It was so nice
and had everything we needed! The beach was beautiful and it was great to have a
relaxing place to spend the rest of the day after a full day at the beach!
(Guest book comment, July 2006)
- What a great time!! Perfect place, perfect weather, great laughs.
Thank you, thank you, and many blessings upon your home! (Guest book comment, July 2006)
- Thank you so much for such a wonderful, fun time in your
beautiful beach home! (Guest book comment, August 2006)
- Wow, a week goes by so fast. The house is perfect. Loved
feeding the turtles and seagulls. Hope the next guests are as satisfied as we were.
(Guest book comment, August 2006)
- Thank you for opening your home away from home to our family.
We enjoyed the beach and seeing all the smiles on our little ones’ faces. What a
great place for them to experience the beach for the first time. ! (Guest book comment,
- Thank you for this lovely home. We loved the beach and the waves.
We enjoyed the stay. Hope to come back again soon! ! (Guest book comment, April 2007)
- Thank you for creating and sharing your beautiful vacation home
– we loved our time shared here with family and friends. You made our “cross country”
destination a rare find by outfitting it so perfectly for our kids. The delighted in
(ok, fought over) the top of the bunk bed, loved the animal toys and legos, and enjoyed
the beach toys you provide. We had so much fun filling our wagon each morning.
(Guest book comment, May 2007)
- Thank you for letting us stay at your beach house! On Friday we
went to the pool. On Saturday we went to the beach and had a lot of fun. We met
some new friends, too. Mini golf was fun. (Guest book comment – the kids!, June 2007)
- The secret to getting boys to sleep past 9:30 am: Boogie boards
at the beach!!! The kids had so much fun riding he waves yesterday! Your house is
beautiful and we felt so welcomed here. Thanks so much for sharing your little slice
heaven with us! (Guest book comment – the parents, June 2007)
- We savored every second in this lovely home by the sea. We love
all the special touches this home affords: water views, whimsical decorations and
all around happy spirits. Thank you for a lifetime of beautiful memories. (Guest
book comment, June 2007)
- We had the most relaxing week staying at your house this week.
The waves were perfect for boogie boarding and the sunset down at the point was
perfect for picture taking. The house is very comfortable and our favorite room
is the family room. Having additional bedrooms was nice as well since family came
down to visit for a few days. The hammock and high-speed wireless were really nice,
too. (Guest book comment, July 2007)
- Each room is nicely decorated and the kitchen is
well-stocked. The neighborhood is quiet and great for sleeping in prior to a
visit to the beach. WiFi access is helpful for activity planners and
workaholics alike. Renters have access to beach chairs, toys, and a wagon to
put everything into for the trek to the beach. There are 2 nice decks which
is helpful if your preference is to be near the sun or shade. Beautiful
sunsets from the back deck in the summer are great for family pictures too.
This beach house has given our family many wonderful vacation memories and
the ocean offers fantastic boogie boarding! (VRBO comment, March 2011)
- We have been staying in this particular house for 3 years
running. It always is perfectly cleaned and well maintained. The photos
don't even do it justice......it feels like a home not a rental. It is so
easy to get to the beach and the owners provide everything you would need.
We particularly love the neighborhood......it's very family friendly. We now
have a standing rental for this house every year! (VRBO comment, July 2011)
