About Your Hosts

Thank you for visiting Carolina by the Sea, by Geigerhaus Vacation Rentals!


We are Rich, Barbara and Jonah Geiger, a family who loves travel. More importantly, we love sharing magical experiences with fellow travelers and fun seekers! Our hosting journey began in Telluride, Colorado in 2009. GeigerHaus, an 8 bedroom ski-in/ski-out, alpine residence, offered mountain respite, adventure, peace, world-class skiing and hiking, and amazing San Juan views.


We hosted thousands of guests over the years and we were fortunate enough to have 100% 5 star reviews on VRBO. The vast majority of our guests were repeat visitors.


We sold GeigerHaus in 2018 and purchased a desert oasis in Scottsdale, Arizona (www.drinkwaterranch.com), also currently offered as a vacation rental property. 

Our experience with GeigerHaus helped us discover just how much we enjoy making wonderful vacation experiences possible for travelers. We cater to those looking for memorable gathering places where they can come together and enjoy the best that this life has to offer in some truly magical settings.


We are so pleased to now offer Dune Our Thing and Sea La Vie on Topsail Island, North Carolina. We hope our guests find this place as memorable and magical as we do. 

All best to you and yours,
The Geiger Family
