This is our fourth stay here. This time we stayed here for our wedding anniversary, and the experience couldn't have been better. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the entire property just has a flair for the romantic. Breakfast baskets are perfect, and the presence of the staff is unobtrusive but always available. Whirlpool tub makes for a relaxing time.... More

Everything was just right -- from the beautiful spacious room, extra large jacuzzi, plush bathrobes, to the yummy basket of goodies everyday that was more than plentiful for the both of us. Beautiful ocean view, and just a quick walk across the street to the extremely clean beach. Took advantage of the lovely bicycles. Hadn't ridden in years, but couldn't... More

Had a wonderful stay. The room and amenities were very good. Quite, clean and very peaceful. Nice view, good workout facility, good location. Best Air conditioning of any Hotel I have ever stayed in. I would and will come back for another stay.

Not sure which one ranks first on our list, a comfortable bed or an ocean front view, well we got both! Excellent stay, had everything we needed. Perfect location on the beach, life guard on duty, fishing pier, restaurants just a stroll down the boardwalk. Perfect!

This place was so relaxing and beautiful, we rarely drove the car. Excellent continental breakfast. Everything you need including peace and quiet... perfect for much needed R&R. We hope to return at least twice per year. Forget any negative reviews.....Merry and Steve

We stayed with Jim and his staff for two nights in June, and I wish we had stayed 4 nights and skipped the rest of our plans. From the time we arrived until the time we left, we were treated graciously and had everything available to us we could want - from fresh towels every day to beach chairs and... More

So, I read this review by Betty A. I'm wondering where she stayed. Certainly not at Darlings by the Sea! My gal and I decided to go to the beach in NC to get married. We had been to Kure Beach once before. We had heard some nice things about Darlings so we decided to give it a shot. I... More

This could go on indefinitely, but here goes. I hadn't been to the Atlantic Ocean for quite awhile, so my friend and I were looking forward to staying at this bed and breakfast, Darlings By The Sea. My friends, it is anything but darling! Nothing worked. The air conditioning system is old, not operating consistently, either freezing us or burning... More

This was a perfect, peaceful weekend. The room was great, the owners were very friendly and helpful, and the ocean was right across the flower-lined street. The basket of food brought in the evening was delicious. Great quiche! There was enough food to eat on all day with a marvelous selection of items.
