Make America Great Again! (2018)

Review for S-49

Monday, Jul 9 2018
Back again for 2018! My family and I love this bright, beachy cottage. Upon our first full day, Tropical Storm Alberto began dumping buckets of rain onto our vacation; despite the front yard resembing a pond, the stone driveway again proved its value, until the waters subsided. When the weather cleared, we had fun at the nearby beach (ocean-side) by avoiding big waves crashing over our heads as we floated beyond the surf. On the sound-side, which is a very short drive away, we had fun floating on rafts and enjoyed what we call our "lazy day". One day midweek, we found the rental close enough to the Ocracoke boat ferry to make a day trip to Ocracoke Island, which has extensive sandy beaches, where the water is warm and waist-high, and yet the incoming waves are ever swelling in size. Back at the cottage, we frequently relaxed in the hammock, regularly soaked in the hottub, and often prepared meals over the charcoal grill (like a grilled seafood meal which included a banana, chocolate and marshmallow foil packet dessert). So many other fun times and memories made in one week... Thank you CHX/S-49!


We are thrilled to see that tropical storm Alberto did not stick around for long and everyone was able to enjoy lots of time outdoors. Relaxing in the hammock, soaking in the hot tub and cooking some yummy food on the grill all sound like fun times. After all, fun times and memories are a must while on vacation! Don’t forget to plan your next beach getaway soon! ~Salvo Team
