The Inlet Cottage was perfect for what I was looking for! The location was nice and quiet, but still within walking distance of many restaurants and a lovely marsh walk. I stayed with my two dogs and we were very comfortable. The cottage was very clean and stocked with necessities, including fresh-baked banana bread! Paul and Chris were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome.
I loved that they provided a pass to Huntington Beach State Park-which is only about 3 miles down the road. The dogs and I went to the park and got some good beach and bird watching time!
The cottage is convenient to Bypass and Business 17 so you can get to the main roads and get around easily, but at the same time, you are in a quiet wooded neighborhood.
I enjoyed my stay and would stay again!
Paul and Chris were the most amazing hosts we could ask for. We showed up late on our first night, and they were waiting for us with the fridge stocked with water, orange juice, and even a bottle of wine. On the counter, homemade banana bread! The apartment we rented from them was everything their posting said it would be. Beautiful and peaceful, within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars, and easy driving distance from everything else we needed. I have a large dog, and they were so sweet to her (even provided bags to pick up after her on our walks!) and let us use the kennel they put up in the backyard that was in the shade and off the dirt, so fleas wouldn't be a problem for her. They let us use their passes for Huntington Beach, and checked with us every day when we ran into them to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay with them again!
By far, this has been THE BEST airbnb experience that I have had the pleasure of enjoying. I've been a frequent quest at quite a few b&bs over my years but none have been so fully accommodating and the hosts' been as warm, friendly and helpful as Paul & Chris Vernon and their charming inlet cottage.
Located in a very quiet community, this lovely cottage was so conveniently located near the Marsh Walk, local restaurants, amazing parks & gardens, that I found it an instant hit and Must stay for any vacationer or traveler. Equipped with golf cart & bikes for your added traveling needs.
Yet, the best part of all were the hosts, Paul & Chris, who instantly made you feel right at home. Insightfully thoughtful services were the many assets of this couple's remarkably stocked cottage. An assortment of parched beverages; a cold bottle of Chardonnay was my favorite awaiting in the frig; a completely stocked kitchen, cooking needs, utensils & condiments; a wide selection of toiletries if you happened to have forgotten them prior, and freshly-baked banana bread for your morning coffee. Oh, of course there was coffee also available.
My short 3-night stay went by all too quickly. Between the comfy cozy bed, the warm heat (on the coldest nights of the winter thus far), and inviting me inside for a wonderful last night supper with their family, I had a hard time convincing myself that my stay was nearly over.
If you are ever in the myrtle beach, specifically Murrells Inlet area, treat yourself to this charming cottage and meet two very warm, loving hosts. It will leave you with such warm-fuzzy remarkable memories :)
I can't wait for my return to Murrells Inlet, especially to see the Vernons' again and stay where I feel right at home.
Thank you again, for everything. Give a hug and kiss to Benji for me also :)
Thank you Michelle for your kind review.We are so glad to share our little cottage with our guests and hope they have wonderful memories of their stay here in Murrells Inlet.Chris and I look forward to visiting with you again not as a guest but as a friend ....We hope you have a wonderful 2015 and Benji says WOOF...: )
Paul's place was lovely and exactly as advertised! Their house is ideally located just a few minutes' walk away from several bars and restaurants which feature live music. The room is separate from the rest of the house, is very well set up (utensils, microwave etc) and is very neat. Paul and Chris were very friendly and gave us great recommendations on things it do (Brookgreen Gardens) and gave us their pass to the Huntington Beach State park, just 5min away. We would love to stay there again when we're back here!
Paul and Chris were very nice and helpful. We came in a little later than we expected and they had no problem with that. The space was nice and location within walking distance to the marsh walk. They even let us borrow their park pass for Huntington Beach state park and had goodies when we arrived.
Perfect place to stay when visiting Brookgreen Gardens! We had some challenges with our reservations and Paul was tremendously helpful. He adjusted the reservation to fit our schedule change. Everything was ready for us so we were able to relax and unwind after a stressful week. Got a great nights sleep and ate at a wonderful seafood restaurant two blocks away. We highly recommend staying with Paul and Christine.
The communication was easy and clear. I thoroughly enjoyed their accommodations and especially the separate entrance. They are wonderful hosts and set the rental up to be very comfortable. Simple breakfast and coffee/ tea etc are available. The location is very quiet and off street parking. They are very close to the inlet and if i had more time i would have inquired about the fishing that goes on in the area. They are assets to the airbnb community. Thanks again for hosting my stay.
