This was our third visit and everything was perfect! We love the spacious comfortable rooms, the Jacuzzi is relaxing for two and the total atmosphere is wonderful. The ocean view is perfect. The proprietors and staff are friendly and keep the rooms clean and comfortable. I look forward to every visit.

What a great facility. Jim provides a top rate experience at Darlings by the Sea. My wife and I visited for several nights to rest and recoup. We were in room #55, and enjoyed the beautiful views, the Jacuzzi, and beautiful view of the ocean. It is also near the pier for fishing, and the local restaurants. Definitely worth a...

We came here for a short pre-fall get away, and it was wonderful! We will definitely be back, next time for a full week! Although it is not a B&B, the daily basket of goodies is amazing, and way more than we could possibly eat. Jim (owner) and Sabrina (fantastic staff person) were great to work with. Good recommendations for...

My husband and I enjoyed a kids free weekend here. The huge jacuzzi bath for two was awesome. Our daily basket of goodies is a nice touch. This is a really quiet, private location. The property is nice and the gardens are beautiful. I would highly recommend this place.

Great weekend getaway, very relaxing and peaceful. We really loved the breakfast basket and having the beach chairs already there for us. We were close enough to walk to the pier and restaurants, but far enough away to have great space on the beach.

We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we're so glad we spent it at Darlings by the Sea! Suite was excellent, Jim's thoughtful breakfast baskets were great, and watching the sunrise from our private terrace was the icing on the cake. Did I mention sitting on the beach watching the stars come out at night in comfy beach chairs...

This is our second visit to this treasure by the sea. Jim thinks of everything to make the perfect stay. It's the perfect getaway for a couple. King bed, jacuzzi, balcony with a view. What more could you ask for. A basket of goodies appears filled with snacks, fruit and breakfast in the frig.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and the deck was a great, private place to share the breakfast they provided. The breakfast was thoughtfully assembled, including fresh fruit and real 1/2 and 1/2 in the refrigerator. My only complaint was that there was nobody ready to check us in when we arrived a bit...

This was our first time to Kure Beach and Darlings. Jim was a wonderful host. The room was fantastic and we loved the breakfast basket every day. It was a great view over looking the ocean from our private balcony. We were within walking distance to some very good restaurants. I am already planning a return there next year.
