Had a perfect week here! Everything was as described and owner was quick to respond to any questions. The house is in a great location and it was so nice to just walk out the door onto the beach. Was even able to see some dolphins swimming by on my last day! I would definitely stay here again.
We absolutely loved the location of Beach Retreat! Beautiful beach with great shells, views and bird watching. It was chilly but we enjoyed time in the sun on the beach and spent tons of time on the back porch watching the waves. The cottage itself needs some attention. We had some hiccups the first day-there was no key to get in and it wasn’t cleaned. Most lightbulbs didn’t work and I had to buy a coffee maker as the burner of the one supplied was rusted out. Internet and cable were shut off but that was remedied by mid week. Be sure to note there is no washer or dryer. It’s a diamond in the rough! The oceanfront location was worth four stars.
The first few days we were there it was freezing and we needed are winter coats, but then it rebounded like no other and we experienced beautiful sunrises, warm temperatures and dolphin shows right from the wonderful front porch.
Awesome spot, right on the beach, and dog friendly. Kitchen has everything, just bring your sheets and towels. Had a blast, will be visiting again!
From the moment we walked in to this quaint and cozy beach cottage we felt at home. The home was clean, the location perfect, convenient to everything OBX, and the view was to die for. From anywhere in the main living area and master bedroom there are wide open views of the ocean. Beautiful big covered porch opens up to brand new beach just down the front steps. Very quiet area, all residential. We were so sorry to leave, and can't wait to book again for next year!!
