About Scott Shackleton

I'm a travel addict and I know how important clean and convenient accomodations are to enjoying a vacation. I'm also love my pet, so I understand wanting to bring pets on vacation. As long as Fido is well behaved and doesn't bark excessively, he or she is welcome.

Why Scott Shackleton chose Coastal North Carolina

This condo is one of 4 I own at Carolina Beach. Pleasure Island is small enough to provide a relaxed beach atmosphere without over-commercialization. At the same time there is a high enough population in the summer to attract top rate restaurants and entertainment. It is close to Wilmington NC and all that is offererd there.

I love spending time in Carolina Beach when my condo's are not rented. I like to hang out on the beach with friends, walk for miles, visit the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, ride my bike and relax with good books. Anytime of year is a great time to visit Carolina Beach. Spring and Fall are actually my favorite times.

I am sure you could find a nicer little condo on the beach but you will not find one better situated to restaurants, the park and the dog beach than this little unit and you will not find a better, more responsive owner. Scott answered all of my question, always same day, usually within a few hours. We walked to all the good restaurants and the board walk. On top of that the dog beach is only 1.7 miles away. We took all our food to go and ate on the patio with the gorgeous view. The unit itself is small but perfect for a couple and 2 dogs and a nice king size bed was a nice surprise. Our dogs liked the little bed cubby in hallway. The bathroom is a little small and the plumbing and water pressure is a little light so the shower was less than stellar and the toilet is sensative so be careful with toilet paper usage but that is really all we could complain about and that said it still was not bad. Some people have said walls are thin but if you are used to living in an apartment it really is not bad or any different than a normal apartment. The south lake park is right across the way and perfect for walking dogs and watching sunsets. Also, Scott only charges a flat 200.00 refundable pet deposit better than most of the units on home away who want extra fees on top of the pet fee already added. I highly recommend, we would stay her again.

Carolina Beach

  • 4 of 5

Beach almost at your doorstep! Worked well for us with our dog. The view was time would go one or two floors higher for a better view. That would also take care of the sounds from floor above! All in all, nice place to avoid the snow and cold of Michigan!

Quick weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

To quote a 15 year old, "it was homey"! It did feel very much like home while we were there. This condo has everything you need for a weekend or longer stay! The views were spectacular! It is very close to restaurants and shopping. There is even a park very close by that we were able to take the dogs to, to get some exercise. The owner was easy to work with and very responsive to emails. Definitely would recommend this condo to friends and family!

Dog Heaven.

  • 4 of 5

For the price we paid and being able to take the whole Family which includes our dogs Rusty and Maestro and location you can not beat this place. There is only two things that would bother some people and one is an easy fix for the owner. For one The floors above must be paper thin. It seems you could hear everything Every step and sometimes you could hear them talking. This did not bug us at all because we was busy out going places and doing things for the most part.

The other is the can opener ( under cabinet mount) is a Fire hazard and does not function and should have been replaced LONG AGO by the owner since it would be so easy and not an expensive fix. No Back up in the drawer so bring one with you. Something tells me there was one there and grew legs because of all The other utensils that were there. The place is very dated and I can understand the place being dated for the price and the fact that Dogs are allowed.

Also make sure your dogs are well behaved as ours are. Everyone staying there except for next door to us had their Dogs with them also. I would not bring your dogs with you to this place if they have separation anxiety (When you go out to do things) or behave aggressively towards other dogs.

Other then that the place was well worth the Money, CLEAN, We Did not see one roach while we was there which is a huge plus, No sign of Bed bugs, A Garage under the room that can be used for a huge storage room or a small car, A full kitchen, A Beautiful View of the Water from the Balcony and we would absolutely stay there again to bring the whole Family.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the can opener! There absolutely was a working can opener there and you are right, it must have grown legs! I replace most of the kitchen utensils every season. I had no idea it was gone - will definitely get a new one in there! Thanks for the compliments on the cleanliness - that is very important to us.
