Welcome to 'Howe Wonderful'! This all started as Sandy's dream to have a place near the beach and for a girl from Pennsylvania her dream has come true. Pete is a local Wilmingtonian and recalls Carolina Beach in its early years. In the off season, we both enjoy working on the condo to make it a relaxing and fun place to come. We know you will enjoy our second home as much as we do.

Carolina Beach is a great beach! It is has long beaches, little crowds, classic beach feel and dogs are allowed year around on the north end. Finally, being near the beach allows you to enjoy all the beautiful gifts the ocean brings.
Ocean Harbor is a small development in which many locals live year around. The development also has the entire block between the ocean and canal. Tenants often comment how they feel as if they are the only ones at the beach in front of our development. We have even had some that leave their chairs in the same spot for the entire week and they are never moved. Life is good here!
We stayed in the condo the week after July 4th and had a great time! The condo was outfitted with everything needed to enjoy a great beach vacation. We rented the linens from Seaside Linens and they delivered them to the condo before our arrival. We had three adults and one small child with us and with the covered parking and beach access almost right across the street it made it easy. The boardwalk is just a short drive down or you can walk to the fishing pier the opposite way. The property manager is very helpful and the owners are close by as well if you need anything. We have family in the area and it was nice that the unit had two parking spaces so they could visit and all could walk to the beach. My son and nieces had fun playing in the pool just behind the building.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home - despite 3 1/2" of rain over a 2 day period and gale force winds on another day (both of which kept us off the beach) - we had a FANTASTIC time!!!! I think the condo is much prettier in person even than in the pictures - beautifully decorated, cheerful and functional...we had quite a crowd (5 adults, one 3 year old child and 3 small dogs) but never felt overly crowded. I would definitely consider coming back and hope we have the opportunity to do so! ~ Linda Sherrill
We loved our stay at your condo! It rained the ENTIRE time we were visiting (except the last 2 hours, of course) but we were able to make the best of it with family time inside. Very clean and great location! We will def be back to visit soon. Our pups even loved it! :-)
My family stayed at the condo for a week and we had a blast! There was always something to do right around the condo. From spending hours at the beach which is located right across the street, to riding bikes around the island to dipping in the pool. There were many fun activities to take advantage of without having to drive anywhere. The condo itself was very clean and beautifully decorated. The fully stocked kitchen had great serving pieces to be able to cook and serve delicious meals. Even though the condo is beautifully decorated, it is very kid friendly. The only drawback is that the condo is located on the 3rd floor and does not have an elevator so be prepared to haul your bags. Overall, I would recommend the condo to families, couples, and single friends.
About the only good thing I can say about this condo is that it is decorated well. I was extremely disappointed in the balcony. The only view was the big blue building next door. The balcony was screened in and we felt like we were in a claustrophobic bird cage all week. The chairs on the balcony were cloth so every time it rained, it took a while for them to dry out. The description says "canal view" but you could only see a slither of it from the bedroom windows. The beds did not sleep well and also had horrible plastic mattress covers on them that made them difficult to sleep in. The cable TV only had the bare minimum of channels and there is only one small TV in the den. I had the impression that the beach access was directly across the street, but we had to walk toward the ocean and down a block (not that big of a deal.) The pool water was nice but no chairs whatsoever. Maybe I'm spoiled by amenities I've experienced other places, but I would not go back nor recommend it to anyone else. For the money, you can stay at a much better place. This is the only place I've stayed at that I rented through vrbo that I haven't liked. Do yourself a favor and look around.
My family and myself recently had the pleasure of spending a week in this condo. I would recommend this rental to anyone I know. While it didn't have a washer and dryer, it made up for with the convenience to the beach. Between the beach access and the pool, my family left there very happy. Without a doubt we will be visiting this location again.
