5/5 stars
A part of me doesn’t want y’all to know how amazing this place is because then it might be booked up when we want to come back ha! Lorraine’s Beach Cottage was PERFECT. Let’s talk location first. The quickest walk to the beach, the sweetest playground, cute local restaurants and ice cream and coffee shops. We were there the 4th of July week and expected it to be crowded, but we always got a spot on the beach with a direct view of the water and plenty of space to spread out all the things you need on the beach with a 1.5 and 3.5 year old. Super short driving distance to the coolest aquarium and in the other direction, Carolina Beach which had a much busier feel, but so many things to do and places to eat (all listed in Lorraine’s recommendation guide which is so handy!) The house itself was perfect. Plenty of space for my family of 4. My kids loved the little play area in the living room with a cute little table and lots of books, puzzles, blocks, and coloring books. The beds were so comfortable. The sheets and towels smelled so clean and fresh. The living room had the coolest little vibe to it with the cute white brick fireplace and built in bookshelves for me and my husband to bust a chill post kids bedtime and watch some Netflix and drink wine. The kitchen had all the essentials but I also 10/10 recommended just doing a Publix delivery with lots of premade stuff like we did. The host was so helpful and checked in on us frequently before our trip to make sure we had all we need prep wise. In short, it was amazing. We will be back and can’t imagine going on any other beach trip that isn’t Kure Beach and staying at Lorraine’s Beach Cottage.

Lorraine’s cottage review
5/5 stars
We had a lovely time at the cottage, the setup was very comfortable, and the kids area was really appreciated! We loved the porch and hammock , and spent time both in and out! All bedrooms were really comfortable, and the kitchen space was great, we cooked a few nights, and the work space was really comfortable . The only suggestion I have is that a full length mirror be placed somewhere in the main house, and I would note that I believe the water discolors items, I laundered a linen blouse that came out discolored, I am sure it will wash out, but you may want to note this near the washer. On that note, all signage throughout the house and info in the book was really appreciated ! As well, response time regarding any issue sent via text was very quick and appreciated as well!
