    Wedding Weekend in Atlantic Beach

    This property was perfect for our group of 10 for a local wedding! It is located right on the gorgeous beach and very short drive to historic and waterfront Beafort. The house had everything you could think of as far as accommodations! Would definitely recommend to anyone with a large group!

    Sibling Reunion

    The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. When we first arrived we had trouble with one TV and the property owner was very quick to accomadate us. My family wants to come back to the same house next year.

    Summer Beach Vacation with Family

    The house was perfect for our week's stay in August and exceeded expectations. Stephanie was very easy to deal with and responsive. Often times we have found that beach rentals are beat up and not quite what was advertised given the wear and tear they receive during the summer, however, this house was excellently maintained and did not at all feel like a "rental." It's obvious that it's well cared for throughout the year by the owner. We'll be back next summer!

    This house has everything you need for a fantastic beach vacation!!

    What a comfy, cute, full of character & charm house! Check in was a breeze. We only needed our clothing, groceries & sun screen! We were a little bummed we couldn't see the beach from the deck, the dune is too high. The deck had plenty of furniture to sit on. The walk to the beach was easy & convenient. The house provided carts, chairs, toys, floats bags and beach towels, amazing. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, paper towels, sheets, blankets you need not bring! The beach is quiet, well maintained. A few of us had to work remotely or take classes and had no problems with the wifi.. We had a few other issues but Stephanie was in constant contact with us. The week we were there it rained A LOT but we made the most of it!

    Absolutely wonderful home

    The Graley Cottage is one wonderful surprise after another. It’s perfectly located, beautifully appointed, with great bedrooms and living spaces. Communication with the homeowner was easy and warm. My family had a great week!

    Exceptional classic beach cottage

    The Graley cottage is lovely and the perfect size for our family of 14. Much thought has been put into nice details. We loved our stay and hope to return.

    Beach vacation paradise

    Can't say enough good things about about our stay at Graley Cottage. The Atlantic Beach location is a great starting point for area activities and the beach is just a short walk out the back door. Two couples plus three single adults each had their own bedroom and bath, plus plenty of common space (most evenings spent on the deck enjoying the sea breeze). Nicely furnished with authentic beach ambiance; comfy beds, real linens and special touches like embroidered beach bags and towels. We all really appreciated the owner's obvious commitment to making her guests comfortable and we hope to be able to return to Graley Cottage again sometime in the future. Thanks for the wonderful memories!
