House was very nice and had a fully stocked kitchen and bar area. Well kept in a nice neighborhood and close driving proximity to the beach. Pool and hot tub were both clean...pool people even came to check both while we were there. Master bedroom was very spacious. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and everyone fit comfortably!

We had a great time at Rainbow's End. The house was equipped with everything that you would need. The pool is beautiful and very large. We spent most of our time in the pool. The only bad experience we had was with the grill. One night, we used the grill to cook dinner ans underneath of the grill caught on fire. We tried to look for a fire extinguisher to put it out and couldn't find one. It eventually went out on its own, but none of the food survived. We will definitely rent again but will be very cautious about the grill.

Our experience at Rainbow's End was a good one. The location was great because we had friends staying just up the street during the same time period so we divided up our time between both houses. The house was well appointed, clean, functional, and spacious with its three bedrooms and large kitchen. We really liked the pool which was a surprise. We weren't expecting that calibre of pool. My family enjoyed it so much better than the beach which was unseasonably cold.
Overall, we had a great time at Rainbow's End. Also, it was centrally located to shopping and attractions. If expenses allow it in the future, we may be back!

Overall, it was a great rental experience. Some of the items in the kitchen were difficult to find. The cleanliness of some of the things in the kitchen was suspect. I had to fix the shower door in the master bath. We also had to fix one of the garage door openers. The pool was beautiful. There is plenty of room for lots of people. The description needs to list all the amenities like a washer/dryer. We wouldn't have needed to pack so much if we knew we could wash clothes. We had a great time during our vacation. We would be happy to rent this property again.
Like it says--- great house, fantastic pool! Neighborhood was nice and quiet. All shopping and sights are within a reasonable distance and easy to get to. Figuring out what all the wall switches go to takes a little while, but you get used to it after a while. We never did find the pool deck light switch tho! The house is definitely pet friendly -- it would be nice if there was a small patch of grass SOMEWHERE for them to play on, but hey, you can always walk down the street to the neighbor's yards. All in all, a great house to spend a week or more in.

This is a great house with ample places to get sun or shade on the huge deck. The pool was clean and we ended up spending more time in the pool than the beach! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook or feed the masses.
I did not like the room configuration for our family. The master bedroom is on the second floor and the rest of the bedrooms are downstairs. This would have been a huge issue if grandma would not have come with us. I would not have felt comfortable leaving my 3 year old on the first floor all by herself with the front door and sliding glass doors only steps away. As it was, it all worked out!

The pictures in the catalog did not give an accurate depiction of this property. This house is filled to the max with the owners 30+ years of "stuff". So much so that there is no where for the renters to put their items. The furniture is very old (some totally broken), the carpets dirty and the kitchen cabinets sticky dirty. We did call Southern Shores and they did send a representative out who agreed with our complaints, but stated "we can only suggest things to our owners, they will do what they want to do". I feel that Southrn Shores should have been more honest and up front with us about this property when we inquired about it. We were truly disappointed with this vacation property. We have rented properties from Southern Shores on three other occasions and have been completely satisfied. I truly feel that this is a property that Southern Shores should politely decline to represent.

We were blessed to stay at this cottage two different seasons. We went once and enjoyed it so much that we had to go back for 2 weeks.
Our family loves to stay on the dunes. We like the privacy it provides, more options, and better prices. You just throw everything in the car and park at the private parking areas that Southern Shores provides.
This cottage has everything, but most of all the pool, decks, hot tub, and just the whole lay out of this house is fantastic. My husband and I loved the privacy that we had with the large suite and very large dressing area, jacuzzi, stand up shower that is offered on the one end of the house. It really gives you plenty of privacy. The central living area is just great. Nice kitchen, several places and tables to eat. Lots of views. Beautiful central fireplace which is seen on all sides. The downstairs of this cottage was great providing 3 more bedrooms and another bathroom. Which were great for our son and his fiance. My mother was also with us. They all had their own private decks. My mother loved to sit out in the morning and have her tea. The only draw back with this house is that everything was so nice there that some days we just stayed there and didn't go to the beach.
Only recommendation would be more pool devices. Floating chairs, noodles, pool floatation devices. Great lighting in the pool for night swims. Hope this place remains affordable. We would love to come back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, we took care of it as it was our own.
