Empty Nesters.....Canadian born and raised, with a southern heart for southern living. Hockey enthusiasts. We love adventure, the beach, fishing, and the simple pleasures life has to offer.
Karen was a great host! Communication pre-visit was great and the place was as described on arrival. It's a great location that's just a few minutes walk to the beach, but far enough from the main road to avoid any noise issues. Karen graciously made breakfast for us each morning, was happy to provide tips for the area, and overall was such a warm, inviting host. We would definitely stay with Karen again!

Karen was such a wonderful host! Unfortunately we did not have the pleasure of meeting John as he was out of town at the time, but we couldn't have asked for more out of our stay. Karen is an incredible cook and we loved the breakfast she made for us both days--omelets, granola fruit crisp, bacon, and coffee. It was by far better than any of the breakfasts at the traditional BnBs where we stayed during our road trip. She was great to talk with and also incredibly generous, allowing us to borrow her blanket for a day at the beach. She also gave great recommendations on the best part of the beach to visit. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and Karen and John's house is certainly the sweetest spot on Carolina Beach.
Karen and John were perfect hosts. We felt home right from the beginning. The house and the rooms are very clean and well decorated. The breakfast is very deliciousy too! She also provided many tipps and hints to the area and we just had a great time.
So if you plan a visit on the North Carolina Beach stay in Wilmington at their house and enjoy your vacation!
My wife and I had a great stay "The Sweet Spot." The owners were flexible in helping us make arrangements. The bedrooms were very comfortable, quiet and clean. Karen was very warm, friendly and helpful and provided us with good info on the best beach and restaurants in the area. On top of all that, the breakfasts were delicious. Recommend them highly.
Our first time using airbnb,was a true pleasure. We not only loved where we stayed, we now made friends with the Turners. Easy going, easy to talk with, and a lovely home. We had plenty of room upstairs, and a dual sink bathroom. We even went to the store and brought some food to cook out on their grill. I felt totally, totally at home in their house and with them. The pool, a few houses down really helped Dave and I relax. A morning walk to and on the beach was perfect. I would highly recommend the Turners place. We positively will be back.We may just move in.

The Turners were an absolute delight to stay with! The accommodations were wonderful--comfy bed, nice shower, lots of space that was very well decorated--but what impressed us the most was the warmth with which our hosts welcomed us. They were helpful about the area, had a binder of information, maps, and coupons, and were more than happy to tell us about places they enjoyed. They also have two lovely kitties, who are more than happy to get attention from guests. Nicely though, the upstairs where guests stay is pet free--so we got to stay with cats, but were completely unaffected by their hair.
A few words on the wonderful breakfast that Karen cooked up for us: amazing! She made us a berry granola crisp, and it was heavenly! This is definitely where we will stay next time we are in the Wilmington/Carolina Beach area--that is if they are not constantly booked!
Response from Karen And John:
We enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you for such a kind review.....Please come back again!
Karen and John were wonderful hosts. The room was new and clean and pleasantly decorated. Breakfasts here were delish, we felt very well taken care of, They were super accommodating and helpful in helping us get acquainted with the area and feeling welcome there. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood.
We had a wonderful stay at Lake Front,Ocean Views. Karen and John were very helpful and friendly. We loved sitting on the porch and watching
the clouds roll in from the ocean. It was a great location to explore the Carolina Coast.
Visited for two nights, had a really lovely time. Karen and John were very welcoming and kind. Karen made us two FANTASTIC breakfasts and we really like the location and view from the room. We felt right at home and would certainly recommend staying with John and Karen!
I am writing a reference letter for Karen Turner. Being her co-worker for the past year in Lumina Academy, a non-profit 501 (C) online school for refugees around the world, I can assure you that she is going to be a great host for your travel stay needs.
Through her 1 year working with me side by side, I found her to be very caring and detailed in her work. They both enjoy walking on the loop and spending time at our beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
Karen and John are passion for our Lord and great parent. Be prepare for them to pamper you guys like their own children. Love is what shine brightly from these two special souls.
I highly recommend you to stay at John and Karen's beautiful place.
If you have any further queries, do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at (phone number hidden).
We have known John and Karen Turner for about 10 years. We originally met them through our children who are close in age. We always felt welcome in their home. We know them to be kind, responsible, honest and hospitable. We have great respect for them and have always enjoyed spending time with them, whether it be at the beach, in Canada or New York City!
