Magnificent and rare ocean/lake view luxury condominium. Top 4th and 5th floor of a 4 unit property. Beach access is directly in front of the condo making it convenient for breaks while keeping an eye on those still on the beach. Centrally located, once you park your car, toss your keys on the counter, you won't need them again during your stay. Entertainment, fine and casual dining at wonderful local restaurants, shopping and a top 10 ranked boardwalk are all within a short stroll in downtown Carolina Beach. During the season, play at the boardwalk amusement park and arcades and watch the weekly Thursday night fireworks show from the boardwalk, beach or privacy of one of the condo oceanside decks. Visit the lake during the weekly Saturday morning farmers' market for fresh fare and on Sunday evenings to watch an outdoor movie. Free downtown actives also include weekly bingo and live concerts. And don't forget Brits Donuts, ranked number 2 in the United States and easily addictive.

This condo, spacious and comfortable, has a private elevator serving both floors from the private garage. Ride the elevator to the top floor and be swept away by the wonderful ocean views. The living area is comfortable with plenty of seating and a 47' flat screen HDTV and DVD player for your enjoyment. The home is set up for family fun and includes movies, games, puzzles and an IPOD docking station for the music enthusiast. Free high speed WIFI is provided for your convenience. There is a large deck with bar height chairs and table. Enjoy an outside meal while listening to the ocean or an early cup of coffee as you watch the sunrise.

Dinners are easy to prepare in the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless appliances, and a coffee/wine bar. Whether preparing a decadent meal or throwing together a quick snack, cooking is made easy in the kitchen fully equipped with all the modern utensils, cookware and gadgets.

Ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

First time staying at Big Blue and loved everything about the house and the location. The owner thinks of everything, has great kitchen appliances and the house is beautifully decorated. We loved being close to the board walk, steps away from the beach, and the lake. It's a great house for entertaining and relaxing, plenty of decks to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

  • 4 of 5

I appreciated the private rooms and balconies. I was upset that the house was so expensive during off season and the little to no amenities that were offered were inoperable. My TV was broken and neither bicycle was capable of being ridden. Nor did the lamp in my room work. I just think if you are going to pay so much for a place to stay, it should at least have some amenities to justify the amount.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry you were disappointed with your stay and surprised as well, after reading the reviews you left in our guest book. "Our family has enjoyed every minute of our stay at Big Blue. The house was beautiful and a perfect fit for our needs. We have made some wonderful family memories. We look forward to returning again soon." and "This was my first trip to Carolina Beach and Big Blue made it wonderful. I loved the privacy of each of the bedrooms and the natural sunlight really keeps a "happy" mood throughout the place. Can't wait to come back and stay again." Jodi and Randy. Immediately upon receiving this review, we had the TV checked and found no issues. We had the tires repaired on the bikes (someone took them off road and sand spurs punctured the tubes) and replaced the blown light bulb. We wish these concerns were brought to our attention upon your arrival. They would have been addressed immediately.

lovely lovely condo, perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 year old keeps asking us when we're going back to our "vacation house." We felt right at home the minute we got there. We had 8 people staying in the condo and the space was perfect. It was so easy to get to the beach, even my grandfather who's 80 yo and in a wheelchair was able to enjoy seeing his great-grandkids play on the beach so that was really special. The beach is literally 30 stepps away from the house. The deck is wonderful! We spent sooo many hours just enjoying the breeze. We also loved that we could walk to the lake which has a great playground for the kids. We spent one afternoon kayaking on the lake which added some nice variety to the trip. Finally the kitchen. We ate every meal in the condo an d it was so nice to have a well equipped kitchen, made eating at home so much easier. The furniture is in great condition and the house was very clean. The other units were occupied while we were there but noise was never an issue. All in ll a great stay. We can't wait to book again for next year!

Our week at Big Blue

  • 5 of 5

We loved your condo. Decorated very pretty. Loved the decor and the themes in each room. The space was perfect, as we only had 6 people. Everyone had their own private area. The layout was so user friendly and even though the steps were a hike each time, they provided an opportunity for some good ole exercise.

We had everything we needed very close by. Roger was very nice and showed us around and explained everything we needed to know. We even got to check in a bit early, which was nice.

The location of the condo is great. Very close to anything around the Carolina Beach area. Just enjoyed it very much. Glad to find. Would defnitely rent again if we decide to venture down that way again. The beach is a good ole fashioned family atmosphere and a lot more layed back than North Myrtle, which is where we usually vacation. Nice change of pace.

We went into Wilmington 2 nights and even rode the ferry over to SouthPort one day. Just had a great time.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed yourself at Big Blue. When we come down, we also take the steps for some good 'ole exercise. But, when we are too tired, the elevator sure comes in handy. See you one your next trip "south". Pat and Renee
