Also while in the area, be sure to check out the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, where you will find shops, restaurants and the summer activities such as fireworks, carnival rides and live music.

The owners of this property have done such a great job fixing it up, decorating, and providing everything you could need for a vacation. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and living spaces are also nice and roomy. The location is also perfect, so close to the beach.

Plenty of room for 5 adults and a dog. The place had everything we needed for a very nice visit. Great location with short walk to the beach. If I could recommend anything I would want more lamps so we didn’t have to use the light on the ceiling fan.

The house is very cute and good location as it is just across the street from the beach. It is well equipped with all we needed in the kitchen, beach chairs and throughout the house. Also was close to other attractions and restaurants. We would stay there again.

My family and I were very happy with this location. We have a 4 year old and 8 month old, the house was set up perfectly for them. The beach access was directly across the street. We had an issue with the hinges on our outside shower, maintenance was able to fix this very quickly. They also fixed another side door that we really didn’t notice or even call about. I would recommend this location to anyone.

We enjoyed our stay at the property,it was decorated very nicely. The property outside could have used some cleaning and at first walking into the property there was an odor but it dissapated with time. The neighborhood was peaceful and had nice neighbors. Great location!

We drove by at 1:20 and nobody was there but it was too early to check in. We went to the store and came back at 2:20 and housekeeping was there. This was disappointing since we paid extra for early 2:00 check in but couldn’t get in then. Would not pay for early check in again. They also left a bag of dirty linens on the front porch all week. The house is very close to the beach and to the beach access. It was an easy walk. We used the nice chairs left by the owners. The front porch was the best place to be in the evenings. Very shady. The back bedroom tv would not work. It couldn’t get an internet connection or when it would it would freeze or buffer. We had no issues with streaming on the front bedroom tv or in the living room. I would suggest putting a larger bed in one of the bedrooms. The bathrooms were spacious with lots of counter space. Very quiet neighborhood and the beach wasn’t too crowded. We enjoyed dinner at Jack Mackerel’s, The Spot, and breakfast at Ocean View. We cooked dinner 2 nights in the nice kitchen. Would probably rent a golf cart if staying for a full week.

Chris, Thank you for your feedback! We apologize that the property was not finished being clean by your 2:00PM check-in time. Please note that our staff is available 24/7 to assist with any issues that arise during your stay. Had we been notified regarding the bag of linens, or tv issues, our team would have been happy to assist! We are glad that you were able to enjoy some of the local restaurants and evening son the porch!

The location was great. The showers were nice. Although in one of the bedrooms, there was no box spring on the bed, so not so comfortable. Also, there were no instruction on tv and had to have rental company come out. All changers required new batteries. We were also charged 2 VRBO charges, one through Bryant Realty and one through VRBO and ended up being around $500. I was not aware of extra fee for 2nd dog (was not on overview), until after booking. I was okay with that, but wished it was listed, as other place I looked at had lower fee and should have been told about 2 VRBO charges on VRBO website too, before booking. There are "palmetto" bugs everywhere, especially in kitchen (counters, drawers, cabinets, walls). That was gross. I have using vacation rentals like this for over 10 years and never had a complaint, until now. I am not picky.

Manager's Response

Karyl - Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your vacation at Almost Heaven! The owners have truly thought of everything for their guests from the relaxing picnic table outside just ready for a large family to grill and enjoy one another company. To the spacious open floor plan and the beautiful nautical décor throughout. Almost Heaven truly is, Almost Heaven. Wonderful to hear you brought your dogs to enjoy the large fenced in back yard, perfect for your fur babies to sprawl out and soak up the sun! Thank you for your feedback concerning the mattress for the bunk bed, unforutanlty the bunk bed is made to not include the box spring due to the extra trundle bed underneath. Happy to hear that one of our maintenance technicians were able to come out and replace the batteries for one of the TV remotes and selected the appropriate "input" for the other TV so you may enjoy your shows/ movies. It sounds like you ran into some "locals" Palmetto Bugs! These pesky little creatures are prone to this area due to being so close to paradise. No worries! This property, including many others, are sprayed for monthly to help with this local problem. As for the pet charges, it is stated in the signed contract our pet fees (line15. PETS). To avoid paying extra 3rd party fees, when booking your next vacation, please make sure to contact one of our reservation specialist and someone will be more than happy to walk you through all charges and answer any questions you may have. VRBO is a 3rd party booking company. Thank you for choosing Almost Heaven for your beach vacation! We hope to see you in paradise again soon!

We stayed at Almost Heaven for three nights while buying a boat at a nearby marina. It is roomy and comfy, and a close walk to the beach. We loved the extra big showers, and well- stocked kitchen - but I enjoyed the decor the most. Interesting and fun artwork in every room: not overdone, but nicely placed on shelves and curio cabinets. Porch swings front and back, and a nice picnic table. Lots of fun extras - we loved it.
