Our big multi generational family just left Magical dreams and we were so excited about this property.We really enjoyed the gourmet kitchen fully stocked. ( we only had to go buy a potato peeler) We love cooking amazing meals on vacation and the kitchen was perfect for this. We also loved the fact that everything you need for the day is on one level was AWESOME, we even saw the teens most of the day until they went down to the game room late at night. We had friends who are building a beach house for rental stop by and they were so impressed. The decor is fabulous, I just wish we could know where things were purchased so we could also buy them. I’m sorry that it was already showing some wear since it’s only been done for a few months but I know people can ruin anything nice.. My only big complaint was the hot tub is small and old and it broke our second day it was patched up and we were told to only have 2 people in it which was not fun but even doing that it broke on our next to last night and since it was cold we wanted to get in there but they never sent anyone to fix it. I guess they figured we were leaving but in all my 20+ years of renting beach houses I’ve never not been able to use the hot tub so that was upsetting. Especially when you spend over $8,000 for a week. Even with that we booked for next year with hopes this will not be the case the next time. Our elderly parents needed the tub to soothe their muscles after being at the beach all day and it did effect the week.
Magical Dreams was beautiful, and perfection every way. Everyone enjoyed the house and all it offered. You cannot go wrong renting Magical Dreams
We enjoyed a relaxing week at Magical Dreams. The house has just been renovated and everything is beautifully done. We enjoyed all the outdoor amenities (hot tub. Heated pool, fire pit and the amazing views). The inside was just as amazing— spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen and we enjoyed playing pool and watching movies on the big tv. It was the perfect getaway.
The house was perfect for our needs with little ones that get bored with a full day at the beach. Beach in the morning and pool in the afternoon and then movie in the theater room after dinner. Also, the rental agency was very quick with their response when the pool wasn't heated and a pool chair was broken. They were there in 15 minutes and had it fixed. Our trash cans were taken in and out for us etc.
Awesome!! Have already booked another week stay!! Great location, beautiful views from entire house. Highly recommend this home and location!!
When we first looked at Magical Dreams we knew we wanted to spend our vacation there! It was everything we thought and more! We had 9 adults and 2 kids and the house was great size for us! The media room was perfect for taking a break from the sun and of course, watching movies. We even moved the mattresses from the bunk room in there for naps during the movies. There was enough room in the house for all of us to have our own space and feel like we weren't walking on top of each other. The kitchen is also really well stocked with appliances, dishes, pots and pans . The only thing we needed to buy was a basting brush for the grill (so it should have that now). The pool was perfect too! Having young children with us it would have been hard to stay at the beach the whole day, but having the beach right there made it easy for quick trips! The Shorewood staff is like no other! Anything we needed they made sure we had it and had it quickly! We were running low on propane and needed the grill for dinner - they came out right away a switched it out! It really is the perfect house that has something for everyone in your family! We loved it so much we will be back next year and our family can't wait! Hint: The two rooms with the ocean front view don't have cable, the two rooms on the inside do (not that it matters, but if you're trying to do a sleeping chart that might be a deciding factor). Also, there is not a bathroom on the bottom floor, that's the only think I would change about the house!
Visited with 8 adults and five children ages 72 to 8. We have been staying in beach houses in North Carolina for over 20 years for our family vacation and have never had a house that cleaner or in better condition than this one. Had a few small problems that were immediately taken care of by Shorewood. Having the pool on the same level as the main living area was great. Beach access was the easiest we have experienced. The house is advertised as 5 BR but actually had an extra room with bunk beds plus a large office. The house was extremely roomy and was actually larger than some 8 BR houses we have rented. The only negative was that there was no bath on the lower floor where the bunk room was located. We solved that problem by moving the bunk mattresses to the office and having the kids using the bath with the 5th BR. Hope others enjoy this house as much as we did.
Very nice and comfortable. Great location on the beach and house was well layed out. Could have used a few more amenietes such as TP and Paper towels.
The house was beautiful. We loved the island and had a great time. I got engaged on Bear Island! The only problem we had was with the ants.
What a perfect house! Location was wonderful, theater room and game room provided the kids with plenty of entertainment. The entire family/ friend group loved the house and we will definately book again next year!
enjoyed the house and theater. the pool did need to be cleaned out and found a live roach in one of the waste cans. the beach and shelling was one of the best
I really enjoyed the home and only wish I could afford to stay longer. The theater was awesome for the rainy day, the game room provided a diversion, and the oceans views sold us on the magic.
This house has everything you will need for a great vacation. The view was fantastic and the pool was very nice. The interior of the house was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare meals. We enjoyed the movie theatre room watching movies on the large screen. The only thing we were disappointed with was the park style outdoor grill. The grill is not large enough to cook for a more than a few people. It would be great if the owner provided a gas grill instead of the grill currently available.
We had a great experience! We loved the house, the beach, the hot-tub and the pool. We also really enjoyed watching movies in the downstairs theater in the evenings. We'd love to go back!
House came just as advertised. Was very clean and well kept. The location was ideal with a walk out right to the beach. Amenities were fabulous, including the pool, home theater, and living areas. Highly, highly recommend staying in this house!
