HOME ON THE BEACH - OCEAN FRONT, WIFI - DISCOUNT FOR CHECK OR ECHECK PAYMENT

Carolina Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Perfect for families, couples as a romantic getaway, two couples traveling together, or retirees.

This property is owner managed. I furnish linens at no extra charge. I even furnish big fluffy beach towels. Guests may call me anytime they have questions or problems.

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.

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.

I'm a retired mother of two and their spouses, grandmother of four, now in their early twenties. I enjoy going to the beach of course, dancing, and card and/or board games.

I've owned my 'Home on the Beach' since 2002. I've really enjoyed the hands-on approach of renting it. I enjoy getting to know my renters by phone calls and emails. Also, I think my renters like the personal touch.

Ann Holt purchased this condo in 2002

I grew up going to Carolina Beach. We were only able to go down for a day at a time or occasionally a weekend. By my senior year in high school I was able to save enough money (working in tobacco, milking neighbors cows, and doing mechanic work) to take my family to the beach for a whole week. It was wonderful. My children also grew up going to Carolina Beach. Fortunately, they got to go a lot more than I did when I was young. I wanted my grandchildren to have some of the same experiences my children and I had. When I found this unit available, I jumped at the chance. It wasn't very pretty when I purchased it but the view was wonderful. After much shopping, decorating, and yes, sometimes even blood, sweat and tears, it is now a beautiful vacation place.

In addition to the beautiful sunrises and early morning fishing boats, I've been able to watch playful dolphins many times and even a beach wedding. I have even to seen 2 sea turtle hatchings, one right in front of my unit.

Great location,great view,well-equipped condo. Even though it is in a complex, the condo was very private and quiet.However,the condo was not cleaned adequately when we arrived but Ann did refund our cleaning deposit to us. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay.
Owner's Response: The renters had a great attitude and didn't let this spoil their vacation.

I have a really great cleaning lady. She always does a wonderful job. However, this time she had put my rental schedule on her clipboard backwards and didn't think my rentals started until July. This had never happened before and I have learned from this experience. I do check with her now to make sure she has been there.

This property was exactly as described, the condo was clean and pleasant. The view from the balcony was spectacular and access to the beach was easy. The pool was also great. We are a family of five with 3 children 8 years old and younger so it was a tight squeeze but not at all uncomfortable. This property is too far to walk with children to the boardwalk but on the other hand it is far enough away to be quiet in the evenings. I would highly recommend anyone to this property.

Midwesterners Vacation

This condo was great. It was in a fabulous location. With older teens, there was plenty to do (the peer, the boardwalk, the girls). The view was spectacular and yes we did see dolphins. What I loved the most was having everything I could think of available to me in the kitchen. We loved having the 2 bathrooms and my boys said the boogie boards were good quality boards. Anything we would have needed, it seems, was there. My only complaint was that it had many breakable items on every available shelf. If my kids had been small, it would have made me very nervous. But besides that, probably one of the best vacations we have had.

Lovely Beach Getaway

Thank you, Ann, for a clean and maintained condo for our Carolina Beach Vacation. I believe you have the best "stocked" rental we've stayed in. The view was outstanding and the chairs on the balcony really let you enjoy it! We loved the fact that we were away from the main traffic pattern of the island but close enough to walk to the boardwalk. Excellent walking on the beach! The pool was well maintained and a great place to relax, too. We enjoyed the ferry ride to Southport to see where "Safe Haven" was filmed, Fort Fisher with it's Civil War history and the Aquarium. Great restaurant selection! Hang Ten was our favorite lunch spot and Havanas, The Deck House, Michaels Seafood, and Gibby's were all excellent choices for dinner. A terrific getaway location with lots to do and see! Thanks Again!!
