Perfect!

When my husband and I wanted a last minute week-end get away, we were so lucky to find Serenity Cottage! It was the perfect fit for us, our dogs and our 6 month old daughter. We spent most of our time out on the dock looking at the birds and watching the boats go by on the creek. So peaceful! It was just what we needed for a quick get away. Jennifer and Bill could not have been more accommodating to our last minute request for booking. Truly a place of Serenity and calm Can't wait to come back! Five stars! Thanks so much!

Great Get Away

We had a wonderful time. Beautifil home with gracious owner, Jennifer, ready to make sure you have everything you need. The home is centrally located -- Downtown Wilmington and Wrightsville beach a short drive away. And plenty to do at the house. While it was too cold for us to paddle board or kayak, it was lovely sitting out on the patio and taking walks around the neighborhood with our dogs. And our dogs loved the doggie door and fenced in yard. We will definitely be back!

Sister Get Away

My sisters and I enjoyed every moment of our stay at Serenity Cottage. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer! It's a great location for first-timers, like ourselves, to explore the area. We packed a lot into our 3 day stay- Wilmington Riverwalk, dinner at The Pilot House, Airlie Gardens, Wrightsville Beach and breakfast at Sweet and Savory (yum!!) My favorite was just sitting out back overlooking the scenic waterview and watching the birds. Serenity Cottage is the perfect name for this amazing place. The owners supplied this charming house with everything we could possibly need, plus some extra treats! We'd love to come back especially when the weather is warmer to go swimming and boating. Our dog Emmy Lou enjoyed every moment too and wished she had had more time to meet all of the doggies in the neighborhood!

Friends Gather and Will Return

0 What an awesome place to retreat to if you want to totally recharge. Even though it was cold during my stay, I still enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the ebb and flow of the water as the birds serenaded me with their songs of contentment. The beds were super comfy and the inside accommodations met all of our needs. Super close to downtown Wilmington as well as Mayfaire Towne Center and of course Wrightsville Beach. Jennifer and Bill were great to work with and extremely accommodating- meeting all of our needs. Will definitely recommend and hope to return when the weather is warmer so I can enjoy all of the water amenities on the creek.

Total Relaxation You Will Not Regret Your Decision

This is our first VRBO rental and we were so thankful to be able to stay here for the weekend of our nephew's wedding. So much more ‘homey' and comfortable than any motel room and what a warm welcome and 'introductory tour' from owners Jennifer and Bill Tatum, who have gone to great lengths to make the 'Cottage by the Creek' well-equipped for every need. Since we are "seniors", one with mobility challenges, the few steps in and out the door and the "all needs on one floor /level” was especially helpful when moving about the cottage and we appreciated this aspect so much during our stay. LOVED the sunrise, the water views, and the birdsong in the morning. Loved the wind chimes too! Greatly blessed to have been here in this cottage and hope to return whenever the opportunity presents itself! Thank You, Jennifer and Bill! ...

Great to Return to Cottage for a Fishing Trip

What a trip. The view from the back yard is beautiful. We had a great time fishing off the dock and easy docking for the boat. This place is a hidden gem. We can't wait to get back.

Amazing Stay at the Cottage!

What a wonderful experience our family had at the Cottage! The view is absolutely breath taking and the atmosphere was so peaceful!! The absolute best place to stay with a young child -- lots of grass, trees and amazing pier to play on all day long. We were just a walk away from renting kayaks and taking an afternoon adventure just right outside our door. Short drive to Wrightsville beach for fun in the sand! We felt like home while were were there -- anything we could possibly need was at our fingertips and the house itself was so homey -- I really wanted to stay forever. Fabulous house for a family!!! Jennifer is very hospitable and met us there when we arrived! I recommend this to anyone! We will be back -- this is officially our home-away-from home.

We would Recommend!! 5 STARSHIP

From the moment we found out our son, who is the U.S. Coast Guard, was being transferred to Wrightsville Beach, N.C. I began to search for a vacation beach house in the area so that our family might have an opportunity to be together. When I discovered the cheerful and affordable yellow, " Cottage on the Creek", I felt it would provide something for everyone to enjoy and it did not disappoint. It was very nice to meet the owners, Jennifer and Bill Tatum, who gave us a helpful tour upon arrival. The cottage was warm, welcoming and clean, the kitchen more than well stocked, all the linens, towels and even beach towels were provided making for lighter travel. Later on in the week when we found the water to the dock and fish cleaning station not working, Jennifer and Bill quickly had it repaired. Our daughter loved the view and our son in law enjoyed the dock and nearby golf, along with the other guys in the group. Their two children - our young grandson loved the beach and bunk beds and his little sister was very happy with the toys in the bunk room. The dock was used by everyone especially our Coast Guard son and daughter in law with their new boat. They were joined by our youngest son in crabbing, fishing and boating. We had an abundance of beautiful weather and was delighted that we could go to the beach and watch our grandchildren play in the water in April. The grandchildren also had an exciting trip to the aquarium, putt putt golf and go carts. Finally our two dogs quickly mastered the doggie door and had a great time on the expansive front lawn and dock. It was a blessing, after a winter of challenging health issues for my husband, to be able to gather at this peaceful cottage with our children and grandchildren. We would recommend the cottage to all as we have vacationed in a lot of places, but consider this a five star.

Perfect for a Family!

We had such an amazing week at the Serentiy Cottage! Jennifer made us feel right at home when we arrived and we felt like her guests instead of renters. This is such a beautiful setting and every detail has been thought of to help you relax and have everything you need. My son found unlimited fishing from the dock to be bliss. Our dogs loved their freedom to go in and out of the dog door and have their own play area. My daughter loved reading and playing with the dogs in the open living room. My husband and I enjoyed the peacefulness and joy of just staying put to have family fun. You can also get to the beach pretty easily. I especially appreciated the high quality bedding and linens and a kitchen that is well-planned for ease of cooking and cleaning. I also loved relaxing on the deck with all of the birds who visit the feeders. It was hard to leave! We have rented quite a few VRBO homes and this is definitely one of the best! consider this a five star.

Just as wonderful the second time as the first

Serenity cottage is cozy and warm with a beautiful view. We enjoyed waking up to a beautiful sunrise while drinking our coffee outside. This is my family's second stay at the cottage and appreciate the owner's hospitality and attentiveness to details. The house has everything you need and is all-around a great family vacation spot. We love the new additions and features you added to the house since we were last there. It is appreciated the owners go the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay! We will definitely be back!

A true slice of paradise

Enjoyed our stay at Serenity Cottage. The beds were extremely comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed and more and the food that was provided so we did not have to make a grocery run was an unexpected surprise. Watching the sunset each evening while sitting by the fire pit was so relaxing as well as watching the dolphins playing in front of the dock was quite entertaining. Did not have to go to Sea World. We really enjoyed our stay and Jennifer and Bill greeting us upon our arrival was extremely helpful. On the refrigerator there are laminated sheets listing where everything is located in the house and how everything works. Never seen this at anyother rental before and was extremely helpful. No guess work involved. The information notebook was extremely helpful also. We definitely will return again.

A boater's dream

This property is great. Highly recommend for a getaway with your boat. 2 miles to the closest inlet and 6 miles from waterfront restaurants. We bought groceries and never drove our car again, we took the boat everywhere.

A perfect getaway and we will be back

We were looking for a place that provided us easy access to the water, fishing and boating but could also accommodate our colllege student and other relatives and friends. Jennifer answered a multitude of my questions and we found the home exactly as described. Very nice that we did not have to immediately run to the store when we arrived as some of the important basics were there when we arrived! The fishing was terrific. Got all our bait right off the dock and caught a beautiful red drum and a delicious large flounder! Sunsets were amazing. Paddle board and fire pit also a bonus! Thank you Jennifer and Bill - we will be back!

Everything we had expected and more

The cottage was exactly as described - clean, serene, and comfortable; everything you could want in a home away from home. The Tatum's are gracious hosts and made us feel right st home, even providing snacks and drinks so we could start our vacation without an immediate trip to the grocery store. The location is extremely peaceful, yet close enough so that you can quickly access restaurants, shopping, etc. We particularly enjoyed the private dock. The fishing was great! The private yard was great for our little Frenchie, he really enjoyed the dock too. Our stay was a great experience; we'll definitely be back soon. Thank you to the Tatum's for their hospitality!

A wonderful gem

What a wonderful escape... Your cottage gas provided for the last 4 days. The fish count got up to 14 and we thoroughly enjoyed being on and in the water. Thank you for your incredible hospitality as you went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. We will definitely be coming back again.
