We live in the 'big city' just 2.5 hours away but most days we are dreaming about being at the beach. We welcome you to our home and hope you love the Carolina blue skies as much as we do.
As headquarters for a week of eating seafood, visiting the beach and sightseeing in the area, this place was perfect. The house was comfortable and very clean. There was tons of local info available and adequate wi-fi. The outside shower and porch were very helpful when we came back from the beach. The kitchen was quite well equipped and we enjoyed our breakfasts and the two dinners that we cooked. As July visitors, the fresh, local fruit and vegetables were one of the highlights of the trip. Great to have a good fridge. Great place for older adults.
Perfect is an apt description of this lovely cottage. On the second day of our stay, my partner tried to convince me to beg it off our hosts because we enjoyed it so much. If you are willing to take a long hike, you can walk to the beach (we did), but it's better if you bring your bicycle. This side of Oak Island was a lot less busy and noisy than the other side of the island, which made the cottage very peaceful and relaxing at night. Jude provided plenty of information about the area with both a welcome email for area highlights and a full binder of information available at the cottage itself. There were also a couple baskets full of books on local topics if you're inclined, as we were, to try and identify local birds or wildlife.
Wilmington and Southport are easy drives. The Fort Fisher-Southport ferry is also worth taking at least once during your stay, if only to view the lighthouses. You can easily get to the Oak Island Lighthouse, but if you want a tour you need to call ahead two weeks in advance. There is plenty of beach parking, although it may be advisable during high season to bicycle from the cottage to the beach rather than try to seek out public beach access parking.
What a wonderful getaway cottage! Jude's house was close to the beach (only a few streets over), incredibly clean, well-outfitted, and had all of the amenities that you would need. The neighborhood is super quiet, and there's also an incredibly helpful binder full of brochures and info on local activities and restaurants. We loved how everything in the house seemed so thoughtfully curated - need to know the wifi password or directions on how to use things? Don't worry, it's all written out! Forgot your soap? Look in the drawer! Does the room seem to dark? It's okay, just turn on that extra lamp in the corner! I know it seems kind of weird to talk about these random-seeming necessities, but I've stayed in other Airbnb's where these things haven't been available, and so I appreciated that these things were available. I think Jude was on vacation when we were at the cottage, but she was still super responsive to any questions I had via text, and that was appreciated as well. I loved the house, loved the area, and am looking forward to coming back again!
The House was a perfect getaway for the weekend. It was well equipped with everything I needed to cook and to feel at home!
The description of Jude and Sephan's Perfect Little Beach Cottage was as advertised. We found it cozy, clean, comfortable and classy. We ate most of our meals in and the kitchen was very well equipped. The neighborhood was quiet and very safe. We enjoyed our rental bikes and walks on the beach. Unfortunately the weather was not conducive to swimming or sunbathing. We saw and heard lots of birds.
Our stay at the Perfect Little Beach Cottage was fantastic. Well-appointed, super convenient and very clean, the accommodations were ideal for a much-anticipated beach retreat. Jude couldn't have been a better host - always quick to answer never ending questions and offering up excellent island suggestions. We spent many gorgeous sunsets at "The Point" and indulged in fresh Brunswick Catch from Hagg & Sons. We look forward to our next visit!
Perfect Little Beach Cottage was perfect for us; nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Jude quickly responded to all my questions and offered lots of information about the surrounding area. We highly recommend this cottage and host.
It was a beautiful place and Jude and Stefan where more than accommodating. I highly recommend staying at Judes and Stefans perfect little beach cottage.
The beach cottage was perfect...everything was clean and neat. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
We especially enjoyed the screened in porch.
Jude gave us many ideas on where to eat and what to visit in the area.

Unsere Zeit im "Perfect Little Beach Cottage" war nach den erlebnisreichen Tagen in NYC und Washington D.C. einfach nur ein Traum. Das Cottage war genauso wie es zuvor von Jude beschrieben wurde. Wir hatten vor unserer Ankunft noch Kontakt via E-Mail und haben somit die genaue Beschreibung sowie noch ausreichend Zusatzinformationen zur Umgebung erhalten.
Die Nachbarschaft war sehr ruhig und es waren 4 Tage in unserer eigenen kleinen Oase. Der Strand ist nicht weit entfernt und ist der perfekte Ort zum relaxen.
Das Cottage war sauber und unser Aufenthalt hat uns sehr gut gefallen.
Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage!
