Sweet little beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well positioned and fully equipped cottage within walking distance to the beach and town. Nothing fancy, but clean, comfortable and relaxed. Bring your bike and you never have to drive once you land! Just the right size for a couple, small family or a few friends. Linens and towels provided! Loved the screen porch for sitting while drinking coffee. Everything you need in the kitchen. TV and WiFi worked great. Quiet street for getting a good night sleep. Your host is easy to communicate with and really wants to make your stay carefree! We loved our stay. Go to the Fat Pelican for a unique drinking experience! Havana’s Restaurant is good eating. Squiggley’s ice cream is right at end of street. Get your groceries before you come over the bridge. Food Lion can be packed because there isn’t any other option. Access the beach one street over on Hamlet which has parking, bathrooms and a place to shower off sandy feet.

Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I'm new to VRBO and don't often write reviews, but this place is worth the praise! This cute cottage just 4 short blocks to public beach access was the perfect getaway for our family of 5. Location was great and the house was even better than pictures. Even with 6 of us, we had plenty of space for eating, sleeping and hanging out. It was impeccably clean and came fully stocked with everything you would expect and need. We ate a few meals here to save some $$ on our trip. The decor was well-done and really made you feel like you were in a beach escape. The kids just kept saying they want to come back, and someday they want a place like this. I have to agree.

If the property itself wasn't great enough on it's own, dealing with the Hilker's was positively a pleasure. This was a last minute trip for us, and we are new to VRBO, but Stephen made the transaction both easy and comfortable. He was SUPER fast to respond before, during and after our stay and I have full faith that if we had experienced any problems, he would have taken car of it quickly and effectively. But we had none. He was flexible and generous on check-in/out times and we got our full deposit back. We simply had a wonderful time.

Overall, this was a great experience and connecting with people like the HIlker's restores my faith in the VRBO concept, and in good people in general. We will DEFINITELY stay again. If this property is anything close to what you are looking for, just book it. I highly recommend it.

Thanks Stephen for an awesome experience!

Cute little cottage nestled in the neighborhood! Extremely clean!!! We had 5 people stay in the house and it was perfect. Stephan was extremely quick to respond to emails and very easy to work with. Having linens/towels provided made our stay so much easier. I would definetly stay here again!

Great location, super clean, and a amazing value for a getaway.

  • 4 of 5

A short stay for a fishing trip that had easy parking for a truck towing a boat. Conveniently located near the beach and dinning. Very clean and cozy.

Great cottage close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Little Sandpiper! It was very clean, stocked with everything we needed, and the beds were comfortable. The beach and restaurants/bars are only a few blocks away. Overall, great place to stay for the night!

Clean, comfortable and fun

  • 5 of 5

The Little Sandpiper is a fun little place, and is just a short walk from the beach. I especially enjoyed relaxing on the enclosed porch. It's a great value for the price. We'll be back.
