The sunning deck is adjacent to an outside shower at the entrance to the private beach access.

The condo is perfectly located on a quiet one way street, a block from the boardwalk area for convenience to dining and shopping. It is also located just across the street from the Carolina Beach Lake Park, which has a beautiful lake with a paved jogging trail around it for great walking, jogging, bike riding, roller blading, etc.

About Mel

We live in Raleigh NC and are lifelong North Carolina residents. We have two children and we love to go to the beach!

Mel purchased this condo in 2008

Why Mel chose Coastal North Carolina

We purchased this condo in Carolina Beach because we both have been going to CB all of our lives. The beachfront is as nice as any in NC, but CB offers the best value as compared to other beach communities in NC. The proximity to Wilmington is very nice, which offers more shopping, dining, entertainment, etc. than most beach areas. It is also easy to get to with I 40 almost all the way and the Wilmington International airport.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the proximity to the lake for biking and to the boardwalk area. The unit has an open floor plan which is great, and the balcony and rooftop deck are the best on the beach. We also enjoy the king bed since we do not have one at home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo! Gorgeous sunrises and the best New Year's Eve fireworks view. We appreciated all of the amenities and beautiful decor. Thanks also for being wonderful to work with. We will be back soon we hope.

Our stay April 10-13, 2017 at 403 Carolina Surf

  • 3 of 5

The positives - 1) Great location within easy walking distance to boardwalk and great restaurants, 2) Large condo to accommodate 6 people - rooms are very good size and 2 1/2 baths is nice for a condo property, 3) The roof top deck is a bonus. 4) Covered parking for two vehicles.

The negatives - 1) Listing did not say that the pool is not open until late April. This was a huge factor in our renting this instead of other properties. When we called Bryant Realty, they took no responsibility for this information being missing from the listing on VRBO and their own site. They said it was determined by the HOA - great, just disclose it to potential renters so we can rent a property that has a pool that can be used during our rental. 2) The condo needs maintenance - dryer vent is clogged and therefore, the dryer does not work very well, the drain in the hall bath is very slow, the shower heads need to be replaced in both bathrooms - water is a trickle, and the bathrooms need a good cleaning - the tile floors are disgusting, vacuum cleaner nor mop were supplied with the unit. Bryant Realty's rental agreement says to call if the unit is not clean or if vacuum, mop, and broom are missing. We came here for a few days away - the last thing we wanted to do was schedule maintenance people to come to correct things that should be part of routine maintenance. 3) We found no instructions on how to use the electronics - could not get the tv in the Queen bedroom to work. 4) The condo and especially the common areas (elevator & lobby) had a terrible musty spell - this could be easily fixed so that is not the first impression guests have of the property, 5) Bryant Realty failed to give us the elevator code when we picked up the keys so we had to call them after unloading our vehicle and hauling all of our stuff to the elevator. 6) Two large very loud pieces of equipment were being used to hoist workers up to replace windows on the building. Again, it is reasonable to expect this major maintenance on the building to be disclosed. One morning these machines started making noise at 7 am, 8 am the other mornings.

Owner's Response: A surprising review from this brief, off-season rental guest after 9 years of reviews, mostly 5 Stars, and none less than 4 Stars. Here are a few points of clarification to be helpful to our future guests: 1. Outdoor, unheated pools in CB are almost never open in early April. The weather is just too cool that time of year for the water to be enjoyable. We usually have the pool open for the season in early May after inspection by the Town. This guest did not ask if the pool was open when reserving, so we were unaware this was a major priority. There is a sunning deck by the pool, the beach is just steps away, and the ocean is available for swimming year round! 2. The dryer is in good working order - coincidentally we had it checked out a few weeks prior to this guest's arrival and it is heating normally. The dryer vent line to the outside was also cleaned for the upcoming season. Occasionally guests will overload the small dryer of our stackable unit as they would a full-sized dryer at home - it is recommended to do small loads and keep the lint filter clean for best results. 3. The water pressure in all of CB is less than what most folks experience at home, but is sufficient. Just a fact of life when at the beach. 4. The unit is clean and we most always get positive feedback on housekeeping and cleanliness. I have outlined the housekeeping quality control plan in previous review responses. Our housekeeping manager confirmed the unit was clean and ready when this guest arrived. The previous guest that departed two days earlier gave us a 10 /10 for cleanliness. A broom, mop, and vacuum cleaner are provided, but must have been overlooked. If any of these items need replacing, or if any other housekeeping issues, a quick call to our manager will get it corrected right away. 5. Our TV remote controls can be complicated and may require a little getting used to. We can thank our local cable company for that one! Our other electronics are pretty straight forward, so no detailed instructions should be needed. 6. There is a 4 digit elevator code for our guest's security - this is provided with the check- in packet. 7. There was building maintenance going on while this guest was staying. It was occurring at another section of the building and should not have been much of an inconvenience. Occasional building work does occur in the off season and cannot always be promised as to the timing. There are no current plans for future building work.

Well worth it

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay at this property. We had 4 adults and 2 children stay comfortably in this condo for 3 nights. The location is great and the interior far exceeded my expectations of a vacation home rental. Also, the balcony has 6 high top stools and a high top table, the rooftop deck looked brand new with 3 lounge chairs, 3 chairs, and an L-shaped bench. During our stay, the city had its first firework show of the season which were launched on the beach less then 200 yards away. We watched the fireworks from the rooftop deck which is a tough view to beat. The owner and real estate company were both great to work with and they were very customer-friendly over the phone. The list can go on-and-on about how great it was to stay at this place. We were happy to find a roll-away mattress under the bunk beds which worked out perfect for our toddler to stay in the master bedroom with us. Our stay was very enjoyabke and I'll definitely be a returning customer.

On the beach with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the heart of Carolina Beach. The condo was very comfortable, clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. Having access to the beach just footsteps away was awesome. The balcony was large enough to accommodate quite a few people and offered a great view of the ocean and shoreline. We spent lots of time there enjoying the view. It was within walking distance to the Boardwalk, restaurants, entertainment and shopping and of course Britts Donuts . We will definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends and family.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family (5 adults and 3 teens) just returned from Carolina Beach. This was our first trip there, we had stayed at Myrtle Beach in years past but out grew it. We loved this property, the condo was clean and exactly as described, we had plenty of room and loved the balcony and the roof. We walk to the boardwalk and enjoyed Brit's donuts. We went and saw the battleship which was amazing. We walked the beach, swam in the ocean,flied kites and fished the uncrowded beach. We are going back next year because we did not get to do everything we wanted. Loved loved loved it.
