Calm, clean, cared for and comfortable!
The condo was even lovelier than the pictures show, and filled with small niceties including Good cookware, plush carpeting, soft bath towels, quality bedding. The walk to the beach is also much closer than it looks by the photos; about 20 steps. David was Phenominal! He responded quickly and thoughoughly to all questions we asked, and the property is clearly well cared for. The condo also has virtually everything you need. We brought TP, coffee filters and food and needed nothing more. The location is perfect; close to grocery and other stores, restaurants, museums and just far enough down from the larger hotels that the beach is spacious and quiet. We'd watch the sun rise, swim in the mornings, and loved to sit on the deck late in the day and watch the pelicans diving for dinner. The places we visited, all just a few minutes away, include Fort Fisher, sea turtle nests on Fisher Beach, the NC Aquarium, the pier, a ferry to Southport (be sure to visit Southport Taffy & Fudge),the Maritime and Fort Johnson museums, Wilmington for a Trolley tour and Cape Fear Museum. Willmington was the farthest- 20 minutes or so. We boogie boarded on the boards David supplied and got tumbled heartily! Leave your floaties at home- the ocean is not the place. We found shells, a few pieces of sea glass and one sharks tooth. Incredible fresh seafood can be purchased at Blackburn Brothers Seafood (ignore the smell outdoors). Best salmon I've ever had and shrimp was great too. This condo, this location is great- wish we stayed more than one week as we missed one thing that would have been fun: renting a four wheel drive vehicle and driving the drivable sections of the beach. Everything about this place was very nice, and the small details like the outdoor rinse station, internet, handy outlets, free washer and dryer, towels, blender, etc. made life so easy here so time is spent doing the important things like watching pelicans and the surf roll in. Highly recommend this owner and this condo!
