The view was beautiful! The room was perfect! Huge jacuzzi tub with two shower heads!! Yummy breakfast and snacks for the beach! Enough within walking distance. Love the quiet beach. Romantic get away. Perfect for couples. Even provide beach chairs and towels. Cleaned our dishes. Provided bikes as well. Will be back. Not one complaint.

What a special place Darlings by the sea is. Jim was so helpful and accommodating. Every detail was thought of for your comfort. The bed was amazingly comfortable and luxurious. I even purchased a set of the sheets they use. I will be back for sure! Thank you for a very memorable romantic stay.
Already planning my next visit :-)

This trip was planned as a treat for us since we'd not been to the beach in nearly two years. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Darlings by the Sea was very clean, relaxing, and completely home-like. Beach access was very handy and we were close enough to "town" to be able to walk to dinner without feeling as if we were right in the middle of the action. The personal touches were just perfect, the breakfast quiche was delicious and the basket of goodies was such a wonderful treat. The fridge was filled with orange juice, fresh fruit, and many jelly choices making a full breakfast possible.
It is clear to me that the owners appreciate their guests and aren't afraid to show it. Honestly, we were not at all disappointed with anything. We will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 51, but I can't imagine any of the rooms not being "choice". The all have a wonderful view of the beach, sunrise and sunset.

We stayed 2 nights and wished it was much longer. Awesome view of the beach from the balcony. These folks have thought of everything to make your stay awesome. Enjoyed the bikes, fresh beach towels and the jacuzzi. The breakfast basket was great. Especially the homeade quiche!

Darlings By The Sea is a great place to relax and enjoy the Kure Beach area. The inn-keepers are very attentive and courteous, as well as very friendly folks. The whirlpool hot tub is a great way to wind down with some North Carolina wine. And if you're lucky, Jim will make a delicious ham and cheese quiche for your breakfast basket. Just a very nice place to stay.
