Getting married on 08/22/2019
My experience At Memory Maker was amazing. My son married the woman of his dreams in August. We had only immediate family on both sides w future bride and groom, in house. We have had events and ... Read more outings before wedding that were great. The experience of living in one house for a week and having joining of families was so great. Truly brought us all closer together. The house is amazing!! So clean , rooms are beautiful, all the conveniences of home. Hearing the ocean off the balcony at nite w family was so calming. We loved the pool. Beach wasso close and convenient. Truly fits its name “The Memory Maker”. I have to give appreciation also to and mostly LauraAnn. She is so great at her job. Both professional and personal. Everything was done in such a relaxing, organized way. Definitely would highly recommend this House for anyone looking to really get the best out of thier wedding venue.

Absolutely AMAZING, from the house to the beach to our wedding day.
Being in the military we move a lot, our families are spread out all over the country and many friends throughout the years we had to find a way that we could gather all our family and closet friends ... Read more in one area that was affordable and feasible to travel to. My father came up with the idea to rent a house in the Carolina's and from there we started our search. Immediately into our search on Weddingwire.com we found Luxury Lodging by Laura and the Memory Maker, finding out that they had a few more homes to choose from and that was when we found love at first look online. We stopped looking after we found the homes we were envisioning for our wedding week. Laura & Laura Ann were phenomenal to work with from day one. We choose the Southern Comfort home and booked site unseen so this was a big step for us in wedding process. However we were in great hands, Both Laura's were quick with their email responses to my million and one questions, they provided me with extra pictures so I could see the layout of the miscellaneous items I had inquired about. Upon arrival on 4/29 the house was gorgeous, very luxurious and the location right on the beach was incredible. These homes are not your ordinary homes, they are top of the line from the high end kitchen appliances to the decor was top notch. We loved the 2 kitchens which came in hands for cooking and eating. The first porch was at perfect height to watch the sunrise and sunsets on the balcony. The second balcony was perfect for getting away to read a book or have some alone time. The layout of the house was perfect, bedrooms were very roomy and convenient to have every room with their own shower and bathroom. We paid for the pool to be heated which was a great choice during April/May time frame, allowed everyone to swim throughout the evening when the sun went down and cooled down. The outdoor showers were great to hose off from beach and pool and the outside bathroom was a smart idea. The wedding day was perfect area for our 51 guest (including vendors) plenty of room to host. The location of the house was near 2 hotels in walking distances (2 houses away). We were able to set up our tables and chairs under the porch to avoid rain without it being overly crowded. The local vendors were also accommodating. Our photographer was able to capture such beautiful photos, can't wait to share the rest of our photos with the Laura's. If you are contemplating a family reunion, wedding or gathering and need a destination this would be your spot! Southern Comfort has everything you need, and I can't wait to return to OIB again! OIB has everything within 10 min drive or 2 min walk from the Southern Comfort home, great shops, arcades, ice cream, restaurants and mini golf. Great place to keep the kids busy and hang out and catch up on relaxation and family/friends.

So grateful for the memories my wedding guests and I made at The Memory Maker thanks to Luxury Lodging. We wouldn't change a thing. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to celebrate our ... Read more marriage for 5 days in a beautiful house. It was a dream space for such a big group. As you walk in the front door, all you can see is the open ocean out in front of you. It is breathtaking. Looking back, I can't believe how comfortable we were even with 26 people filling this house. The double fridges in both the kitchen and basement made food and drink prep very easy. Everything was spotless upon arrival and truly was exactly as pictured- if not better. There was plenty of room for everyone to be present and make lasting memories. We enjoyed every single moment and are so thankful for the staff who made all of our dreams come true. In the days and months leading up to the event, Laura and her staff returned every text, phone call and email to ensure all details were in place. They even through in linens for us to take one less thing off our list of wedding to-do's. Their level of attention to detail is impeccable. It took me a while to write this review because it truly is difficult to put their level of customer service into words. I can't wait to return to this home in the future and rent with Luxury Lodging again.
