community, and it doesn't go unnoticed!
We moved to Pleasure Island after retiring from NY in 2008. Soon after, we purchased the property and built the house. We are very active in several community-based clubs, and are involved in our community helping with various charitable functions.
Every Superhost has their own style, but they've all reached key hospitality goals.

A textbook example of what guest services should be. I've stayed in many hotels, twice the price or more, that could learn from Rich and Kathy. Beautiful, super clean, spacious room, all the amenities, more local information than you could ask for, friendly accommodating hosts, a quiet surrounding, easy in/out access, all close to everything. This was our first experience with airbandb and I'm sure they have spoiled us for all other listings. We will be returning again and again.
Very nice room, close to the beach and places to eat. Park the car and enjoy the walk.
I could have not asked for a better stay. Rich and Kathy were wonderful hosts, and the room was as advertised. We were very satisfied with the privacy and comfort that was provided.
I can not thank Rich and Kathy enough for shipping over my laptop, that I accidentally left in the room. Thank you for such a quick turnaround!
Rich and Kathy made us feel incredibly welcome. Our stay was very brief, so unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to explore Paradise Island or Wilmington (or their heated pool). My wife and I and our two children (ages 9 and 12) stayed for one night on our way back up north from Florida, so we arrived late and left early the next morning. But their place was absolutely perfect -- beautiful, spotless, with everything one could possibly need. I've stayed at a lot of AirBnB places over the years, and of all the ones in a private home, this was by far the best appointed and organized. Water, coffee, TV, a computer, and a comprehensive collection of local maps and guides were all provided in the room. And Rich and Kathy were more than happy to help with any other questions, including nearby Civil War sites. This area strikes me as a little hidden gem, and I'm quite certain we'll be back!
We definitely enjoyed our stay at Rich and Kathy's beautiful lighthouse room! The room is spacious, we have 4 people staying there very comfortably! And very well designed and decorated! Rich and Kathy provide a lot of information on places to visit nearby and to eat. Their house is less than 5 min drive to the beach, we enjoyed the sunrise there. Overall, we are very happy with our stay! Thank you Rich and Kathy for being such great hosts!
Great house and comfortable room with many Christmas decorations. Very nice experience for the first time Airbnb trip.
We loved this airbnb! Rich and Kathy were the best hosts and they really know how to make you feel at home. The room was spotless and it was similar to a cozy hotel. It was a great location and they provide a lot of helpful tools for a vacation (I.e. Handouts, pamphlets, menus, even links on their computer to Local restaurants and places to visit). The coffee was a nice touch in addition to the mini fridge. The location is great. It is quiet and peaceful. We would definitely recommend this Airbnb.
What a wonderful experience! Rich and Kathy are down to earth, friendly folks who have gone out of their ways to make a comfortable, upbeat, extremely well appointed space. They have extras like update electronics, including a dedicated computer. They have compiled all sorts of local information, beyond even the comprehensive area restaurant listings, they included activities, ferry times, etc. They took time to chat with us about the local foxes, owls, eagles, etc. to the insider food locations to travel logistics. And they weren't at all intrusive when we wanted our privacy. They were amazingly understanding when I (uncharacteristically) bumped a wall with a suitcase, waving off my offers to help clean off the black marks. They shared their personal DVDs with us, along with lots of smiles. All-in-all, a "four thumbs up" experience!
I only stayed one night and had minimal interaction with the hosts due to my own schedule and through no fault of theirs. The property and rental space was exactly as described in the advertisement and the photos are accurate and up-to-date. Very clean, well-organized, well-appointed. Hosts provided extensive "guidebooks" for dining, outdoor activities, shopping etc. The neighborhood is very quiet - the house is at the end of a cul-de-sac. Rich greeted me upon arrival and provided the "lay of the land". I did not meet Kathy until late the first evening when I returned after dinner. I conversed with the hosts briefly the next morning - I was interested in the maintenance of the salt water pool and Rich obliged my curiosity. We also spoke briefly about their success in renting their space on Air B&B. Carolina Beach itself is a quaint little town yet close enough to Wilmington if you need more. This space is a real gem, affordable, and totally worth looking into.
What can we say. It's just a 5 star host!!
The room is just amazing and the two are so friendly.
If we come back, we'll stay again, for sure.
Have seen their Lighthouse Room and would reccomend to everyone. Beautfully done and lots of room. Everything you need on a very quiet street and only a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean beach area. The hosts are a wonderful couple that treats everyone like family, very caring. friendly and always gives the added TLC touch.
