I'll start with the bad. The dampners weren't working properly causing our room to be subject to other rooms a.c. so we blocked the vents with towels and grabbed an extra blanket. That's the bad. The good...not enough bandwidth to say how absolutely amazing our stay was. We went to relax, recharge and reconnect. We got all we hoped. From...

This is our second summer staying at Darlings by the Sea for a quiet getaway from work, kids, and the busyness of life. We love being just steps from the ocean, having breakfast in the room, and enjoying the boardwalk and our daily bike rides. We look forward to returning next year!

We have stayed here two times. The location is perfect for a Kure Beach stay. Within walking distance to the pier and a few restaurants. The breakfast basket provided in the evening is a nice twist to a "bed and breakfast". You can eat when you want and there are extra goodies in the basket perfect for snacking later in...

Everything was perfect! This place is so clean, unique, and completely relaxing. The location couldn't be any better. We walked down the beach every evening for dinner. Freddie's was delicious and Jack Mack's was great too! We definitely will return whenever we can get away without the children. What a perfect place!

We had an awesome time......stayed on the beach in the morning, retired to the balcony for the afternoon, cocktails at 5:00, dinner in and out. Jim was really accommodating with his daily treats and phenom quiches. This was our first trip based on a friend's recommendation.....we are already planning a repeat visit.

This is an excellent place to stay in Kure Beach. The accommodations are clean and so comfortable. Love the Egyptian cotton sheets! Everything you need is provided for a quiet and relaxing weekend. Love having the breakfast delivered to the room the afternoon before.

Nothing else to say. Jim was HUGELY accommodating and helpful. We cannot thank him enough! Great, centrally located to all of our destinations. Clean rooms. Great views. Fast service. Great variety for breakfast. Everything you'd expect in a B&B plus more. We've already bragged to our friends and those who would listen. You really get what you pay-for at the...

I planned a trip to the beach to celebrate my birthday and I don't think we could have found a better place to stay. Oceanfront. The boardwalk just a few steps away. A balcony to watch and listen to the waves. Restaurants within walking distance if you don't feel like driving. There are bicycles available to use but we didn't...
