Our host was very friendly and worked with us for an early check-in. The Beacon House was comfortable, relaxed and very clean. Although the inn is not on the waterfront, it is just a short distance away and we had easy access to the beach each day. Mike, the host, is friendly and engaging as well as being an excellent cook. The location is also convenient to restaurants and nightlife, but is safely removed from the noisy, busy area of Carolina Beach.
One small suggestion: we appreciated their having the coffee out early, but would have preferred breakfast a little earlier than 9 AM.
