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.

My husband booked a weekend here for our anniversary and it was nice. Clean and romantic. Very quiet and the staff was helpful and courteous. We will definietly stay here again. The only downside to the area is the choice of restaurants lacks.

Darlings of Sea provided an excellent view of the dolphins, surfers, fisherman plus a great view of the ocean sunrise. The bed and linens were very comfortable and we had no problem sleeping, very quiet. The basket which included breakfast and snacks for daily use made it easy to "take it easy". Being able to walk to several restaurants was... More

This was an excellent experience. The only minor reason that I did not rate 5 stars instead of 4 is that since we stayed two nights, we felt that the second day breakfast entre should have been different than the first day. With this minor exception, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My boyfriend and I were recently first time guests at this awesome gem of a place. There is simply nothing I would have changed. Adored the secret garden and sun porch, complete with fat cat. The bed and linens were superior as was sleeping with the patio doors open wide to the sounds and smell of the sea. The hot... More
