Reviewer Comments:

The home was nicer than the photos. It had close beach access. As far as the rental insurance goes when I called to asked about how it worked Carolina shores had no idea. Disappointed since we didn't get to our place until close to midnight since we got flat tires along the way and needed towing assistance.

Reviewer Comments:

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was comfortable and just the right size for 4-6 people. Kitchen had everything needed to cook in and coupons were provided if eating out was preferred. A little bit of a walk from public access but nothing outrageous. TV provided many channels to watch when winding down and downstairs storage room was great for locking up valuables that you didn't want to bring upstairs, like bikes and nice beach chairs. There were also games and cards provided. Homey and beachy all in one.

Reviewer Comments:

great little cottage. We normally rent a much larger home due to additional family members joining, but we only had the 5 of us and it worked great. At first we thought it would be too small, but we immediately adapted and found that with the sunroom, and deck, we could spread out easily.
