Great Labor Day Stay

Reviewed on 2019-09-05 by Unknown of Raleigh, NC United States
Updated on 2019-09-21
Review of stay from 2019-08-29 to 2019-09-03
Overall satisfaction
Our family (5 adults, 3 kids) stayed over Labor Day and had a great time. The space was perfectly sized as we did not feel cramped. It was very clean apart from a little dust on the ceiling fans and walls. The kitchen was also well stocked. One of our adults slept on the sleeper sofa and found the mattress less comfortable than the actual sofa. We enjoyed the front porch, especially the swing and the close proximity to the beach. There was a neighborhood cat that hung around the porch the first couple days. This was only concerning due to allergies in the family but it did not end up being a problem. We would definitely plan on staying here again.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to help you with your vacation needs in the future. We will pass your concerns to the owner.

The house was clean and in a good location. It was just across the street and down one house to the access to the beach. One concern was there is a window in the shower in the hall bathroom. We were on the second floor and the house next to us was three stories and had windows so all of us used the master bathroom to take showers. Also the walls are very thin and the people downstairs liked to stay up until 2-3 am. Except for these two things really liked it.

Thank you for your review! We're glad you liked the Henson house and understand your concerns about the bathroom window and noise. If we get the chance to host your next trip to the beach, please let us know if there's anything we can do to improve your stay. We will try our best to make your vacation comfortable and enjoyable!

Our week in the Henson Upper was great, a week of firsts. Our first vacation in 10 years, our first visit to Carolina Beach. The house was everything we needed--clean, well appointed, quiet location, supplies for our daily needs were available. Our granddaughter, from Seattle, came with us and she ha a blast. Beach access was very convenient, as was the little grocery store two doors north. We spent a lot of time sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch, enjoying the sea breezes and "people watching". We could not have asked for a better vacation.

A Keeper! Will come back

This was a perfect place for our week at the beach. We had 5 adults and all had their own sleeping space. The unit was very clean and very much appreciated the linens as part of the rental fee. The supplies in the kitchen were so helpful. Plenty of paper goods. Kitchen had many cooking items so we were able to do a lot of cooking for the week. You can hear the neighbors downstairs but it was not distracting. I have stayed in that same block before so the location to the beach is great. That part of the beach is also relatively less crowded compared to closer to the boardwalk. I will definitely reserve this house again. Also, it was easy to reserve and I appreciate the frequent convenient communication with the rental agency through the app. Overall a great experience!

We live across the street from this house. We rented their upper unit for our kids which we've done before. The house is great - extremely well maintained, well appointed and very comfortable. The owners take excellent care of the double unit house. The one criticism that I have is not with the property but with rental agencies in CB. From what I've seen, there is little to no information given to tourists about the rules and regs of CB. There are so many problems with beach regs not being followed, safety issues with golf carts, Freeman Pk problems etc. that it seems negligent to not have written material distributed with keys. We've had experience with several rental agencies in CB. Some give out limited information and some have none.

Thank you for your review. Most information is on line now, we have an App for a guest that has links to the Chamber of Commerce's websites for both beaches that would include the towns rules and regulations. We encourage our guest to download the App for information, maintenance issues, and things to do. We hope that your family had a wonderful vacation.

We had a great experience at Henson Upper. It was really close to the ocean and the waterway. The unit itself was very nice. The only complaint I would have is that the downstairs neighbors were extremely loud. Unfortunately, every night when the 25 yr olds came home from the bar, we had to listen to them fight. I'm not sure I would stay again unless I had friend/relatives staying below. The unit is great as is the location, but getting woken up every night was no fun.

Hi Joyce- thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you had a good time. We are sorry about the neighbors, though. Please reach out to us next time you are planning a trip to the beach- we'd love to find you a place with a little more privacy! Thanks again!

We love our stay here and felt that many families have shared the same experience. Relaxed and not too fancy with lots of touches that make you feel you are in someone's home - not in a hotel - Henson House really has all that we needed. Beach access is across the street, there is a little store and a good coffee shop two doors down and you can walk to the boardwalk in the evening. There is plenty of parking if you need it and lots of space to spread out - the porch is just right for hanging out, playing board games or just rocking!! Kitchen has what you need (we would bring a lot less stuff next time), wifi, TV, DVD for the kiddies, etc., etc. This house just has the vibe we enjoy (we usually go to Narragansett in RI or Nags Head to some big old house so this was a good match and all members of our group felt the same (age ranges 10-64).

Quaint condo in PERFECT location!

This condo was rented for my wife and two kids and one of my brothers and his fiancé. So we had 2 children under 3 and 4 adults.

The pros: It was the perfect setup for us. 3 bedrooms with 2 baths. Very little down time in getting ready for the beach or the town. The condo was across the street and down one building from the closest access to the beach. It took longer for us to walk down the steps to the street than it did to get on the beach. It was nice being that close. The part of the beach you have immediate access to is the perfect beach for us too. It was not crowded at all. It was more families and kids. Plenty of room to roam there. The condo was clean and well stocked with appliances. Plenty of deck space! Had cable TV (we watched twice for the children) and decent WiFi. It was close to the boardwalk and plenty of shops.

Cons : The washer would stick in the rinse cycle and stay there unless you moved the dial. The walls were thin so I’m sure the downstairs guests could hear my children making noise in the morning and night (they didn’t complain if they did but you could hear through walls at night). The boardwalk had several places that were “Cash Only”. It wasn’t a problem for us but we heard many people get disappointed there. You are between two waterways so the bugs got bad at night. The “beach view” was nearly non-existent from the condo (we spent so much time at the beach we didn’t notice as it took 2 minutes to walk there). Really these things were minor to us but not much else to say for cons.

Overall this was a perfect relaxing (much needed) vacation on the perfect part of the beach! I would stay here again for sure and I will recommend this property to family and friends.

I never heard from the property management other than emails so it is hard to rate them. (I’m not complaining about this. I prefer no contact 🙂)
