Guest Comments

“Carolina in my Mind was a great retreat!  It was clean and had lots of extra touches.  The movie & book selection was great and a nice touch.  Everything was clean and welcoming.  Definitely a great week and memorable vacation.  Eleven of us made the trek from PA, and we are all sad to go.  Thanks for the cheesecake and the beautiful house!”

“What a beautiful, well equipped house!  Decorated beautifully, well maintained, with everything we could possibly want or need at our fingertips.  We’ve rented many beach houses over the years, but this was clearly our favorite.”

The Foote Family, August 2013

“Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful beach house.  Love the new furniture! It was an awesome 2 weeks of quiet time on the beach!”

The Milanovich Family, June 2013

“Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with others.  This was our second stay in your home and we’ll be back next year.  The upgrades were great and we always feel at home.  Your home always helps us relax and forget about our hectic schedules.  Thanks again for sharing.”

The Arnwine’s, August 2012

“We celebrated our mother’s 80th birthday here!  What a great place to celebrate.  We are so happy with our choice of your house – it is definitely the best house we’ve ever stayed at – the cleanest and the most well taken care of.  We also appreciate the amenities that you have provided – not the minimum essentials that we find in some places.

We loved:  The bedrooms were spacious.  The open concept of the living area.  We loved the decks with the ample furniture.  The hammock.  The well stocked kitchen.  Thank you!!”

The Thompson’s, July 2012

“I have been visiting the Outer Banks since I was a child.  Your house is absolutely lovely and the attention to detail is amazing.  Thank you for an amazing week.  The kids and adults felt right at home!”

The Methe’s, August 2011

“The house is very special, and it is obvious that the this house is loved and well cared for.  We wanted for nothing in this house.  Everything needed for a memorable vacation is here.  Also wanted to comment on how clean the house was when we arrived.  It was spotless!  Thanks again!

Guests RAVE:
August 4-10, 2013: “What a beautiful, well equipped house! Decorated beautifully, well maintained, with everything we could possibly want or need at our fingertips. We’ve rented many beach houses over the years, but this was clearly our favorite. The house is so beautifully appointed and CLEAN. The house was even nicer than it appeared in the photos, with completely updated appliances, new, clean furniture and comfortable beds. Even better (and often lacking in rental homes) were the many extras that came with the house: a well stocked kitchen (including sharp knives – yeah!), tons of books and movies, a Jacuzzi, and plenty of beach stuff. All of this for a reasonable price and a very short distance to the beach. All in all, a great place to stay! Thank you!! Just absolutely lovely. The Foote Family

July 7, -14, 2013: “Thank you for continuing to improve your wonderful beach home. We really appreciate all of your extra touches. Everything is perfect. We have stayed at this cottage for 12 years straight and the owners continue to up the ante with thoughtful improvements that make this home super special. We like to cook and the kitchen is fully equipped with good knives, a garlic press, Cuisinart, you name it. The endless decks offer morning and evening sun (the sunsets are amazing) as well as second floor decks with a hammock and hammock swing chair. The furnishings are as beautiful as they are comfortable with new custom-made bedspreads in the bedrooms and new sofas in the great room. A fantastic movie and book collection is a bonus. For electronics, there are new flat screen TV’s in every bedroom and free wireless. The owners are personally interested in your stay and it shows! See you again next summer!” The Pullanos

June 30-July 7, 2013: “We never ventured far from the beach house this week. It was so pleasant that we didn’t feel the need to leave, except for groceries. Lots of deck seating and nice views all around. Hot tub was a hit!” Emerick & Chandra family
