Recent North Carolina Coast vacation rental reviews

Lovely home with great views. Pros were cleaner than past years (under new management this year), updates apparent and everything worked. Kitchen is well equipped for large groups and the ice maker is a blessing.

Our family has stayed in Waves for probably 10 straight years during Thanksgiving. My brother lives there, and the rest of us have rented a bunch of different homes in that area over the years. This was most definitely one of the best. Many that we've stayed in have been fairly similar to one another (nice, but essentially three story boxes on stilts). MacMurren was unique. Perhaps a bit older... but it a good way. It was vintage, but very clean and charming. Loved the open landing between the 2nd and 3rd floors. The first floor game room was more welcoming and worthy of hanging out than some of the others we've visited (ie variety of chairs, lots of space, pool table, kitchenette). The second floor inside hot tub was a completely unique experience. Not only sheltered from the elements, but also seating for those who didn't want to join us in the tub, which worked. Lastly, the 3rd floor ocean facing deck was one of the best that we've had over the years. We spent most of the early parts of our days sitting there and chatting in the sun, with every so often someone saying as they gaze out... "Isn't this awesome?!" Which it was. Thanks to the great hosts! I'm sure we will be revisiting this home.

Location was really nice. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and listening to the ocean waves and looking at the stars. The home was spacious and well stocked. Overall the stay was phenomenal.
