“We Loved the Purple Cottage!”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband, Mom and I stayed with our two fur babies for our 10th anniversary weekend. I must say we loved every minute of it! The cottage is spacious and comfortable. Susan thinks of everything - we only had to bring sheets and towels! The beach access is directly across the street, so it's super easy to get out and play in the sand/surf. We plan to go back again next year. It's very convenient to take the pups along, not to mention the pet fee is extremely reasonable considering the amount we'd spend to board them at the kennel. Thank you, Susan, for making our 10th anniversary very special!

If you are interested in staying in a simple, laid back cottage with great access to the beach this is the perfect place to stay. Susan has thought of everything from straw cups, blue tooth speaker to dog bowls. It is nice to come stay at a house and not have to pack everything from your house to bring on vacation. The best part is, it is pet friendly. We were able to bring our dog to enjoy the vacation with us. The screened in porch is a great bonus as well. You and your dog can sit on the porch and listen to the ocean. I would definitely book this house again as well as recommend it to a friend.

Best things about this rental:
Single family home, no one upstairs or downstairs.
Screened in porch.
Washer dryer.
Private beach access directly across the street.
Pets are welcome.

Renting this house was a seamless transaction. The rates were budget friendly as well as the pet fees. I saved at least 50$ because I didn't have to buy beach chairs at the nearest Wings, there were already nice ones there for me to use. :) The house was very well kept and clean on arrival. Fully stocked kitchen and not the cheap stuff either. Beds were comfortable and extra thick. Bathrooms were immaculate.
Overall I had a very relaxing, peaceful, non stressful vacation. It's my new go-to place on Topsail Island now.

“Wonderful weekend with family and dogs!”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had an amazing time for Labor Day weekend here! This cottage is very pet friendly for those of you who are looking for a relaxing beach weekend with your pets. The beach access is directly across the street from the cottage so it's super convenient. We would pack a cooler in the morning for the beach and then run back for a quick lunch mid day. We spent our evenings relaxing on the screened porch listening to the ocean. We were truly sad to leave but are excited to go back next year! Would definitely recommend!

Our stay at Seagull's Landing was probably the most care free place we have ever stayed at. We had absolutely Nothing to do or bring for our stay, as Everything you could possibly need or want was supplied. Very accommodating- the beach was close and the neighbors and the people of Surf City were very friendly and helpful. We felt like we had lived there for years.
Even better. our dog "Jaxx" had the time of his life with the enclosed screen porch that he could watch everything that was going on from. This cottage was very Beachy and my husband and I look forward to staying again. Oh yeah- Jaxx too !!!
