The Henson cottage was a perfect vacation home. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. It had all the kitchen utensils you needed to cook with. It has a great location right across the street from the beach access. My family loved having a bit of a backyard to play in as well. The only thing I think the cottage needs is a grill. But other than that perfect!

I will be back next year

This house was in a really good location. There is a public beach access just across the street and a great coffee shop that serves a really great breakfast just one house over. But, when I booked this house I did not realize that there was an upper rental and a lower rental. I apparently rented the lower one. The "guests" upstairs stomped around all night until 1 or 2 AM and played loud music that we could easily hear through the floor. I would not stay at this house again, even on the top floor. Also, the bed mattresses were too stiff and uncomfortable for our liking and the "queen" bed was noticeably smaller than the queen bed that we have at home. We are used to sleeping on stiff beds during vacations but when compounded by the noise upstairs it made for several long sleepless nights.

Chris, Thank you for your review. We apologize that you did not realize this was a duplex. We do hope that you enjoyed your stay and see you next time!

Layout of the house was perfect. Of course the five children upstairs did not know how to walk - fortunately by 9 p.m. things were quiet. Close to beach, porch great for gathering. Only thing missing was a BBQ. Otherwise a great experience.

We stayed in the bottom half of the house, it was our families first true vacation. We were a little unsure what to expect. But the owner of this house blasted all thoughts. You can tell she really cares about her house and making her guests feel at home. She tries to make sure you have as little worries as possible. I was truly touched by all the little things you could tell she had done for her guests!! I would DEFINITELY stay here again!!!!!

We stayed with our 9 month old at lower Henson for a week and had guests with a toddler and 9 year old. There was plenty of space, the house had everything we needed and more than we expected as we were worried it would be bare without linens. Amazing open space kitchen and living room, tasteful decor and that old knotty pine made it super cozy. There was plenty of kitchenware and I could tell the owners were family friendly- met them on our way out and they were really great. So fun to be next to a mini mart and good coffee shop and beach access is steps away. The front porch was great for people watching and a little shallow pool for the babies. My only worry would be if you had very noisy upstairs neighbors as you can hear a drone of voices if it is quiet time downstairs. The washer dryer is super convenient in the kitchen area, but a bit noisy.

Had a great time this year. Although the weather was a little wet the first couple of days, we still enjoyed the beach and town. Found great local restaurants as well as out favorite -Cape Fear Seafood Company. The ocean was great, a little rough, but then it calmed down later in the week. We'vwe been coming here since 2007 and look forward to many more trips.

We rented both the upper and lower levels in order to accommodate our extended family. The home is clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. Handicap accessible rental properties are not plentiful in Carolina Beach so we were appreciative of the ramp and handicap bathroom in the lower unit. Would definitely rent again.

A group of girls went down for a weekend to stay in this lovely house. We especially needed a handicapped accessible location and it was hard to find one. This house was just perfect. We rented the lower level. Everybody loved the charm of this house. I would love to rent this place again. If you rented both levels you could really take a large group or family. Every thing was there that we needed for cooking and the property was well maintained. The rental staff did a great job with check in and check out.
