Best B&B ever.

5 on February 16, 2014

Splendid place to stay. Best B& B ever. Wonderful Jacuzzi, large comfortable room, enormous treat basket. Love the beach,the balcony, the extra details that add so much to our comfort and enjoyment! Anyone who would write a negative review about Darlings would probably not like heaven either!

Beach heaven

A veranda overlooking the beach, a nicely appointed room, a quiet spot in a busy tourist town but only a 2 minute walk to the restaurants and shops, a beach entry across the street. How can you complain about this place for a beach vacation? They even have beach chairs to take across the street and bikes to visit local sites, like the historic fort and aquarium a couple of miles down the road. The food basket is a great idea so that you don't have to plan a time to be downstairs for breakfast. Good spot.

My husband and I visited Darlings By The Sea May 28-31. This place was wonderful! Extremely quiet, clean and comfortable rooms, service was outstanding and the breakfast basket delivered daily was awesome. Loved the fresh fruit platter and muffins. The location of the hotel offered beautiful views of the ocean and beach for our private balcony. This was our first visit to the Kure Beach area of North Carolina were we found it to be very pleasant and we would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a romantic getaway.

Wonderful, relaxing getaway

What a fantastic place to just escape for a long weekend. Jim and Dee were very gracious hosts and afford you plenty of privacy. This isn't your typical B&B with a set breakfast time. A basket of goodies is delivered to your room every afternoon while you are out, giving you snacks and plenty of treats for a tasty breakfast at your own leisure. My husband very much enjoyed Jim's famous quiche (I'm a vegetarian). We'd definitely stay here again.

Several times we have passed by The Darlings thinking how wonderful it would be to stay there. As a surprise birthday getaway, my wife made our dream come true. We were not disappointed! From the time we checked in until the time we checked out, we felt welcome and at home by Jim and Dee. The accommodations exceeded our expectations! The double-headed shower was fantastic; as well as the breakfast basket each morning full of goodies, especially the home-made quiche. We have recommended The Darlings to several of our friends and family members. We will definitely return!
