Our adorable, romantic cottage is only 7 minutes to Topsail Island, even closer to shopping and restaurants, and you will have the whole place to yourself!

We are nestled back off the road in a private setting with carport parking, Wifi, an outdoor shower (shared with the home next door), fire pit, clothesline, and a fenced yard.

The yard is shared by the main house on the property and IS PET FRIENDLY; all pets must remain on leash and accompanied by an owner when outside.

The space
Enjoy our fully stocked kitchen with service for 4 (plates, dishes, bowls, glasses, mugs, and utensils), a stove with 4 burners, a refrigerator, pots & pans, and numerous cooking utensils. We offer cooking oils and a full array of spices for the avid home chef. For the coffee fanatic, we have a brand new Nespresso machine with complimentary coffee pods as well as Coffee Mate creamers for your enjoyment. For larger batches of coffee, consider using the stainless steel French press, water kettle, and the loose coffee under the cabinet next to the refrigerator.

Our cozy living area includes a queen-sized bed with linens/comforter/pillows/etc., a futon that lays out into a twin bed with extra blankets, a TV, Xbox360/dvd player, and playing cards & board games!

Our bathroom is attached to the living area (no door but a curtain for privacy) and comes equipped with a standing shower, sink, hand soap, toilet & toilet paper, and 4 large bath towels.

The available outdoor space includes a carport with space for 1 car, 2 chairs for relaxing, an outdoor shower on the back of the cottage (shared with the home next door), a clothesline, and a backyard area with a large shade tree and a fire pit! If available, complimentary firewood is located along the back of the house near the fire pit.

Feel free to use any part of the yard that was mentioned, but please keep it tidy and pick up after yourself and your pets. The home with which the cottage shares a driveway is a separate rental space, so it is possible that other guests will be there during your stay. Both spaces are pet-friendly, so please keep your pets on a leash when outdoors.
