This was our first trip to Carolina Beach, we generally go to the Outer Banks but thought we would try a new area this year. The house itself was nicer than the pictured showed and there was WiFi in the house which was a bonus! In addition, it was very clean with great views and easy access to the beach. The location of the house is ideal, the section of the beach it is on seemed to be less crowded than the rest of the beach (on July 4th at that!). In addition, the location allowed for you to walk to a great walk-up hamburger/BBQ place, convenience store and lots of restaurants. You truly can park your car and not worry about a thing! The beach house was stocked with lots of beach toys, boogie board, beach chairs etc. The owner was very responsive and friendly which was a bonus. If you are considering trying Carolina Beach for the first time, or have gone previously, you can't beat the location and value of this property!
