"We loved the closeness to the beach. The house had just about everything you could need. The game room was awesome. The outdoor space was really nice and spacious. All and all it was a great house."
"Theater room was awesome! Game room was awesome! The dual fridge and freezer in kitchen was/is so needed with our crowd. Plus the basement kitchen with the ICE MACHINE wonderful!! The dual washing machine and Dryer! Some updated bathrooms were great too. I’d highly recommend Twiddy and this home to anyone!"
"Location is perfect."
"Location, features, well-maintained, well-equipped"
"Our group loved so much about this house! The two master bathrooms on the third floor have nice features. The kitchen was well-equipped to cook for large groups. Movie theatre room was so fun! We watched playoff basketball and hockey."
"Our family has stayed at Bella Carolina multiple times and as always everything is well marked, clean and works. The recent upgrades made the home even more enjoyable!"
"Very clean. Two fridges. Lots of bathrooms."
"The kitchen was very well stocked and extremely organized. We must have been lucky enough to be the first ones using the home after it was recleaned and organized from the summer season. Much of the home seemed newly remodeled and everything was in great working order and clean! The weather in mid October was still perfect and the town was fairly empty. Our week together as a family could not have been better."
"This house was simply stunning, the amenities, the development, and the proximity to Food Lion and Tim Buck II. This is truly a gem. We cannot wait for next year."
"Overall a great place for a family vacation! Not much left to ask for with this house. Location, Beach, Pool heated, theatre room, love the dual sub zero refrigerators in the top kitchen! Plenty of outdoor furniture too!"
"The house was amazing!! The owners made some great updates to the home and we can’t wait to go back next year."
"Great location, great house"
"Bella Carolina is TRULY BELLA. Just wish it wasn’t booked for next year’s July 4th week. Great house. Great location. The owners have put a lot into it. Twiddy was great also!"
"Nicest home we have rented in 10 years in the OBX. Tastefully refurnished. Every extra you could ask for - pool, hot tub, elevator, billiards, arcade games, shuffle board, two kitchens, double sub-zero frig's, and on and on and on."
"Location was perfect and the house had everything we needed and more! Couldn’t be more happy with our trip"
"We had a great time at Bella Carolina! Great location, amenities, and perfect size for our family."
"Great location and everything was as described. The cabana service and ability to walk to shopping area was especially nice. The house could use some updates but overall we had a great vacation here."
"Great home and location. Nice upgrades and perfect layout for multiple families. Outside needs some work. Unfortunately there was a major issue with trash pick up. Trash from prior week’s renters completely filled all garbage cans and we had to store our trash bags in the garage the entire week. Multiple calls to Twiddy for assistance who were slow to help."
"The home was very nice however needs some updating. The grill was an issue early in the week however Twiddy provided a loaner grill and the owners replaced the grill with a new one the day before we left. We were told that the home had just changed owners so I’m hopeful the new owners may give the house some TLC that would make it perfect in the future."
"This house was great except for a couple of maintenance issues. The hot tub was broken for 6 of the 7 days because they had to order a part. The gas grill didn’t work either. Besides those 2 issues everything was great. We loved the neighborhood of Buck island. And the location and views from the deck were amazing. I would go to this exact property again if those 2 issues were fixed."
"Location was great but the house was a bit lacking. It was evident that it had not been rented in a while and needed some attention."
"We had a group of 15 stay in this home, a week ago. All of us loved the location, the size, the amenities, and the decor. So convenient to both local grocery stores, souvenir shopping, the wild horses, etc. The beach was fantastic. We loved it so much we’ve already booked for next year!"
"A very handicap accessible home with great views of the ocean"
