About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This recently updated second floor unit has spectacular views of the ocean from the living room as well as the master bedroom. There is a dual entry balcony with large sliding doors and windows providing lots of natural light. Decorated in a cottage style with a clean beachy feel, this is a fantastic place for couples to go for a romantic getaway or for families with young children.

The master bedroom offers a new queen size four-poster bed complete with matching furniture, a new LCD flat-screen TV, a DVD player and access to a private half bathroom. Ocean views and balcony access from the master bedroom allow for a truly serene atmosphere.

The second bedroom is decorated in a nautical theme with two twin beds and a generous amount of closet space. An armoire in the living room opens up to reveal a TV, DVD player and extended cable network as well as wireless internet - check your email or surf the net as you gaze out towards the ocean.

Boasting a new ceramic tile floor (which extends throughout the living room and full bathroom), the fully equipped kitchen provides everything you need for meals at home. Just make sure that you don't leave without trying the local, fresh caught seafood at several of the character restaurants nearby.

The full bathroom offers a shower/bathtub combination with an adjacent linen closet. Linens are not provided but can be added for an additional cost. There is a shared coin-operated laundry facility for washer and dryer use on the first floor.

A Place at the Beach is a very clean, quiet condominium complex with it's own private pool and lounge chairs. It is lushly landscaped with palm trees and privacy fenced for wonderful sun-catching fun. Access to the beach is just outside your door and there is an outdoor shower and spray off area solely for the use of our building.

The boardwalk is just a little over 1/2 mile away which boasts restaurants, shopping and a marina that has boat rentals and charters with daily departures for fishing, pleasure boating or sunset cruising. Other activities nearby include the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher and the fishing pier. Not too far away is a ferry to Southport which is a great day trip. For the golf enthusiast, there are several great courses close by that allow public play. Carolina Beach is where the 'shag' dance began and there are numerous festivals (Blues and Jazz, Seafood/Chowder cook-off, Beach Music) during the summer months as well as live music on the boardwalk, free movies and concerts. Of course, the views of pelicans, dolphins and romantic sunrises are best experienced right from the balcony.

About Judy Arrington

My daughter and her husband relocated to Wilmington NC and my husband and I decided to invest in nearby Carolina Beach. Living in Charleston SC, we love the ocean and especially love the family atmosphere and lifestyle that Carolina Beach presents.

Our condo is a little slice of heaven and we love watching the sunrise, pelicans and shorebirds as well as leisurely walks along this wonderful shoreline. We know you will love it too.

Judy Arrington purchased this condo in 2002

Why Judy Arrington chose Coastal North Carolina

We chose this location to be close to our daughter and her family. They have sinced relocated but we have kept this wonderful condo because we love visiting and relaxing here on the beach.

It's really a great year round experience.

What makes this condo unique

You can't beat the location...just a short walk away from the fishing pier in one direction, or just another short walk to the deep sea fishing boats, the pavilion, shopping and restaurants.

If you wish to drive, you are just minutes away from downtown Wilmington, many golf courses, the aquarium, shopping and just about anything you would like to do. After excursions, you can relax and sit on our balcony, enjoying the cool breezes, or take a dive into the ocean followed by a refreshing dip in our sparkling pool. A full sized kitchen with all the necessary cooking utensils make dinner preparation easy..or drive to several exceptional restaurants without leaving the island. It's the best of both worlds

Guestbook comments from the owner

amazing, beautiful, zen-inspiring retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home and I am already thinking of when we can go again. The condo was great and the location couldn't have been better. Everything was clean and comfortable. We watched dolphins from the deck in the morning and enjoyed a beautiful, immaculate, quiet beach morning, noon and night. It was simply perfect!!

Great condo for a family.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo. Felt bigger than the pictures. Nice decor, clean, and great view of the water. Judy was easy to communicate with. A hurricane came on our original dates. Judy was very kind to let us reschedule when she did not have to do so. Although it was cold when we were there, the locker of beach stuff was full and would have been great for a family looking to hang out on the beach for extended days. Great place in general. I would stay there again.
