About Steve Exum
Steve Exum is the president and principal photographer at Exum Photography, LLC. Exum is a North Carolina native who grew up in Raleigh. Steve, his wife Molly, their daughter Bella and son Sawyer live in Elon, NC with their dog Murphy. We are an adventurous family and the Exum Beach Cottage is our go to home for beach adventure. I manage the rentals on behalf of the owners my mother and father Jim and Judy Exum from Greensboro, NC. From this old house, we surf, skim board, fish, shell hunt, sail, sunbath and yes, even scuba dive. This cottage was built by my grandfather James Gooden Exum, Sr. in the 40’s and was one of the original cottages built on Club Colony Drive. Hurricane Hazel blew it down and my Grandfather rebuilt it in 1955. With it’s nostalgic knotty pine walls, this cottage has been the base for huge Exum Family gatherings, marriages and accommodated countless friends for great beach vacations. She withstood a number of hurricanes and the occasional water spout keeping her visitors and contents safe and dry. We Love this cottage and you will, too.
Steve Exum purchased this Cottage in 1955

Perfect beach getaway!
This beach cottage is family friendly, pet friendly and just plain fun! The manager was kind and helpful. The best part, of course, is what nature provided - a beautiful beach with sunrises and sunsets!
Beach front with a view of the sunrise and sunset from our south facing porch ... this location cannot be beat. The cottage sits at the end of a dead-end road within a five minute walk to a classic fishing pier. Great for families and friends that just want to hang out together and chill. Thank ya’ll for choosing the Exum cottage. Hope you’ll come back.

Everything was FIRST rate!
Steve was very efficient and helpful!
Experience was a joy for all of us!
Would do it again!
Great older cottage with lots of charm.
We had a great time at the Exum cottage. It suited out purposes perfectly as far as space, location, ocean front, and mostly a wonderful porch with rockers where we spent much of our time. We had all adults and found the accomodations suitable. It is an older cottage but it was clean and had lots of charm.
Thank you so much for you kinds words. This is a treasured place in our hearts
Great space that is obviously cared for by its owners. We felt privelaged to stay in your family hom
The cottage has been built for family fun. It is a perfect location for large families and is built in a way that families within the family can have their own space. I highly recommend this rental.
Thank you Chad. We hope you can make another trip.
Wonderful beach getaway spot for the family!
Very comfortable home well suited for family gatherings...private beach access w great views day & night from a very large deck. Well organized & equipped (ex, kitchen area, beach chairs, nice outdoor shower & convenient washer/dryer area) to support a relaxing time!
Responsive property management support if questions arise. Will definitely be returning!
Peter, I’m so happy you and your family enjoyed the Exum cottage. Thanks for your very kind words and we look forward to your next visit. Warmly, Steve
Nostalgic Ocean Front Cottage loaded with everything you need.
Before the vacation even began I knew I made the right choice just by speaking with the owner. The Exum’s were just fabulous and continued to be throughout the stay. Communication was easy and prompt. I really felt like they wanted you to have a great time.
The Cottage is in a great location. I barely left the front porch except to grab take out from Amos Mosquitoes and Pescara. The view cannot be equaled. It’s peaceful yet there’s ample to do in close proximity.
All you really need to bring is your clothes, a beach towel and toiletries/bath soap. Really...that’s it. The place is stocked that well. The kitchen is loaded with absolutely everything-down to trashbags and dishwasher detergent. The Air conditioner thumps and the WiFi handled a crew of 13 year old girls!
Put me down for another stay!
So glad your crew enjoyed the cottage. We really do want all of our guest to enjoy the place as much as our family does. A lifetime of memories have been made there. And truly, that porch is just perfect for relaxing and watching the ocean during the day or the stars at night. Come back anytime!
