Carolina Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom, two bathroom beach duplex close to everything

Updated beach property in the middle of it all! Once you park your car, there is no reason to drive again until you're going home! We are located an easy 5 minutes walking distance from the boardwalk and even closer to a number of excellent restaurants.

Check out the map on this listing. The beach, fishing, shopping, restaurants, bars, the boardwalk & amusement rides are all a stone's throw away.

This rental has 2 bedrooms with 2 queen beds in one bedroom and 1 queen in the second bedroom, and 2 bathrooms. It also features a spacious living room, dining area and full kitchen! Looking for a smaller property? View our other listing at www.vrbo.com/592446

It was updated in 2009 and has new beds, new flooring, a fully equipped kitchen and updated baths. We put a fresh coat of paint on the property before the 2014 season as well.

We have another unit available at the same address which also has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. This unit, however, has 1 full bed in each bedroom. You can view the listing for this unit at www.vrbo.com/592446 .

You must provide your own paper products, linens and beach equipment. We will be happy to provide the contact information for a local linen service or you can bring your own.

We are happy to accept your well behaved pets (limit 2) with a REFUNDABLE pet deposit of $200 and an additional $25 pet cleaning fee. The $200 will be refunded to you along with your general deposit within 2 weeks of departure as long as no damages or excessive mess is left behind. The cleaning fees are non-refundable.

Guestbook comments from the manager
"We really enjoyed that house. It is just a perfect location; the ad was correct- we parked the car and didn't use it again until we were ready to leave. Even my extremely pregnant wife was able to walk to everything we did!"

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a large group of us stay for a girl's weekend. The location was perfect! We did not use our cars a single time we were there! It was right across the street from frozen custard which was perfect on a hot day. We crossed the street to get to the beach and took a short walk to get to Britts (yum) and all the restaurants/bars/stores. The house is smaller for a large group. But for us, it was clean, had all the basics that you needed, and was centrally located. I would recommend it!

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING BUT SOME ISSUES

  • 4 of 5
Pros:
Two bathrooms, two bedrooms.
Close to everything.
Looks updated.
Great price, much cheaper then a hotel.
Loud AC unit but did a good job at regulating the temperature.
Open enough to allow two small kids to run around.
Plenty of cabinet storage but ants were a problem (see ants comment in cons).

Cons:
Advertised WIFI available, but No WiFI was available. Big bummer! Called management company for details on this but never got a return call.
Ants would swarm anything they could get their hands on.
Little parking available between the two units. Had to park in he back because unit A took the front spots. It rained so had to wade through 6 inches of water to load and unload two kids. Evidently the rear was the drain location for the entire complex.
Beds were VERY squeaky.
Showed toaster oven in pictures, but none available
We had kids but there were no kids channels on the TV available. Not a big deal.
Very thin walls so was very loud at night and between the two units.
No drapes to cut put the sunlight so giving the kids naps during the day was a big challenge. Had to jimmy rig towels on the windows to try and cut the light.
The paint is bubbling in the bathroom walls, so when you shower it really starts to bubble!
Second bathroom vent fan didn't work.
No tub plugs so taking a bath or giving the kids a bath was not possible.
No sponges to wash the dishes. Didn't know this so we had to use paper towels to wash everything.
The chairs and couch were full of sand. Didn't surprise me because of the beach but would have expected that they would have been vacuumed by the cleaning company.
One of the bedroom fans really squeaks! Maybe the blade is out do alignment.

Overall we were happy with the place. We enjoyed our visit to the beach. There is a slushy/ice cream place across the street and major restaurants are with walking distance. The charter fishing boats leave from the docks right across the street and the party boats leave from the same place.

It's very close to ft. Fisher and the aquarium, which was very cool I have to say. Very easy to see some sights and get into Wilmington. I recommend going to the history museum in Wilmington.

WE HAD A BLAST

  • 5 of 5
Came with 2 of my girlfriends for a long weekend. The house was exactly what we needed. We didn't use the car until it was time to leave, everything was within walking distance (bars, restaurants, stores) and the beach was a minute walk away. The house was comfortable & clean. Neighbors staying in the other side of the duplex were great. We will be back!

DEFINITE RETURN SPOT.

  • 4 of 5
Loved the side we were on ,best location you could want with the midnight cruise ships across from us, and the store straight across the street. Everything was walking distance away so I didn`t have to drive anywhere, and that was important after driving from Oil City , Pennsylvania. We are definitely looking to stay there for our next vacation.

CONVENIENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at the Little Blue Pelican with my niece and her two children, ages 5 and 8. I was happy to see how close we were to the beach and boardwalk, and the convenience store across the street was.....well, convenient. The single air conditioner in the living area was noisy, but enough to cool the bedrooms, too, which also had ceiling fans. We were able to watch the Thursday night fireworks from the porch. Also, it's just across the main street from the 'party' boats that offer evening cruises on the river, which we did, and the kids had a blast! The carnival was just a couple blocks away and the kids were thrilled with it! We were able to walk to restaurants for all meals. The outside hose came in handy for rinsing off after the beach. Only a couple problems -- one was the parking. There are only 2 spaces in the front and the people renting Unit B has already filled them, so my niece and I had to park our cars behind the house. It rained the day after we arrived, and my niece waded through six inches of so of water to get something out of her car. And we had to be careful where we stepped on the grass, as someone had not picked up their dog's poo -- the 5 year old unfortunately stepped in some. Overall, a good experience, and my niece and I both agreed that we would return to the Little Blue Pelican again.

Carolina Beach is a great place to vacation and The Little Blue Pelican is located right in the center of it all. Once you arrive, you can park your car and put away your keys until your departure. Visit Kate's Pancake House for a great breakfast and Harbor Master's for dinner. Walk to both of these restaurants, along with many others for a great meal. Enjoy the nightlife? No need to call a cab -- there are a handful of great bars within a 5 minute walk of our property. If fishing is your thing, this is the location for you. We are located directly between the Yacht Basin and the beach access. The beach access is an easy 500 feet away from your front door!

Carolina Beach is a family friendly vacation destination. You and your little ones can easily walk to the amusement park for an evening of fun, complete with fireworks! History buffs will enjoy the historical Fort Fisher while beach bums will be amazed at the beautiful, unobstructed coastline it offers -- just a 5 minute drive! While you are there, check out the Fort Fisher Aquarium for a great educational experience for adults and children alike.
