This was our first trip to Carolina Beach. My family really enjoyed the week. The condo had everything we needed and the location was perfect. The view from the balcony was terrific. Being so close to the beach made spur of the moment swims with my 5 year old granddaughter ever so easy. The pool was perfect. We spent the week going from the beach to the pool at least 4 times a day! The condo was spacious and well kept. You can walk to several restaurants, the boardwalk, ice cream cafes, and Lake Carolina is just across the street. It rained a few days, so we took that time to visit the aquarium and took in a movie in Wilmington. Ron, the owner, was very responsive and great to work with. If it works out, we will be staying here again next year!
