My 'Home on the Beach' is in a beautiful oceanfront condominium, 'A Place at the Beach.' The only thing between my condominium and the beach are the sand dunes. The fantastic views from my third floor balcony include beautiful sunrises and glowing sea at sunsets, fishing boats and sailboats, playful dolphins and birds, surfers and swimmers, and other beach activities.
My private balcony has two tall chairs. I feel like I have a million dollar view. The porch on the street side overlooks our condo's private pool. Even though this unit is on the third floor there are only two flights of steps, since the first floor is almost ground level. Sorry, no elevator.
Our beach access is at the north end of the building. A definite plus is a Carolina Beach lifeguard stand located to the far right of the condo building.
One enters my home through the spacious kitchen and can see through the family room to the rolling ocean waves. The kitchen is fully-equipped and almost every small appliance that is in my kitchen at home. There is plenty of storage space. There is a utility cart and a storage cabinet in addition to the built-in kitchen cabinets. Both of these match the wooden and white ceramic tile table and four wooden chairs.
Now to the family room. Both the kitchen and the family room are decorated with many lighthouses. I call the kitchen and family rooms my 'lighthouse' rooms. The large family room contains a sofa and two comfy chairs. Shell lamps accent the two bamboo and glass end tables. The family room also has a 20' flat-screen TV, DVD player, and stereo with CD player in a bamboo and glass entertainment center. A floor lamp lights the entertainment center. The living room also displays three small artificial trees with 'beachy' decorations. We now have free Wireless Internet Access!!
Sliding glass doors lead to balcony overlooking the ocean. The ocean can also be seen from a long window near the sliding doors.
The master bedroom has a full bath, TV and VCR player, window view of ocean and private entrance to balcony. This room is furnished with a bamboo & wood queen-size bed and matching dresser, armoire and night stands. The fishing net and shell window treatment compliments the bed’s shell comforter. The bathroom and bedroom are decorated with shells and lighthouses. You guessed it. I call these rooms my 'shell rooms.'
The second bedroom is my 'tropical room.' It has a twin bed and a bunk bed with a twin on top and a double on bottom. The fishing net with tropical flowers draws attention to the tropical floral comforters on the beds. Both beds are white metal. This room also contains a small table, white night stand with a tropical fish lamp and white four-drawer chest and a TV.
Carolina Beach is located about halfway between New York and Florida on the southeastern coast of North Carolina on a beautiful and quiet island. Pleasure Island is the larger of the two barrier islands on the Cape Fear Coast. The beaches are wide, beautiful, sandy and not crowded (even in peak season). Carolina Beach is great for sun seekers, beachcombers, moonlit beach walks, nature lovers (Carolina Beach State Park), fishermen and water sports enthusiasts.
Some other activities, interest and necessities in Carolina Beach are Carolina Beach Pier (.8 mile), Boardwalk (.8 mile), Wheel Fun Rentals (with unique bikes, surreys and pedal go-carts), shops, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies and medical center. All are within 2 miles (many within walking distance) of condo.
The island itself has many other points of interest. Since the island is so small you aren't very far from anything. Kure Beach with its fishing pier, beach trolley tours, shops and restaurants is about a 3.5-mile drive. The southern most part of the island is only 7.5 miles from condo. Here you will find the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher Historic Site, Fort Fisher/Southport Ferry and Zeke's Island estuarine complex.
