I have never stayed in Carolina Beach, but saw this house and loved the exterior so I was hooked when i saw it. This house is convenient to the boardwalk, and a few restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Let me also say that this place is immaculate. It was as if someone had just been there and and done the white glove cleaning treatment. From the baseboards to the the ceiling, this place was clean and sparkly. I knew renting this that Big Blue wasnt oceanfront, but the views we had from the balcony were such that we felt that were oceanfront. the beds were very comfy and we all slept wonderful. The shower in the master was roomy and never had a problem with water temp or pressure. There are 2 pullout couches in the living room (although we never used them) that were comfy and sturdy. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance, tool, bowl etc which is great for cooking large meals. The elevator is a great added bonus. We loved watching the tree lighting ceremony around the lake, it was so sweet and a nice added surprise. We had more than enough room and all of the extra things, such as soap and detergent, extra t-paper, etc made this home one that we would definitely rent again. Thank you for allowing us rent your beautiful home.
The ladies enjoyed out stay and everything went smoothly. We would rent it again. David and Sue were very helpful.
Big Blue was exactly what our family needed. It is two floors, master on the top floor with living areas and bedrooms below. The elevator is nice to help haul groceries and luggage up the steps. The condo was immaculate, tastefully decorated and there wasn't one item that we wished that we had. It is all there, including beach chairs, a couple of bikes, hotel quality linens, every kitchen gadget and appliance etc. Location was excellent, close to shopping, restaurants and the boardwalk. It also has an ocean front view from the second row. We hope to return soon!
Big Blue has to be one of the nicest places to stay at Carolina Beach! We enjoyed our first hurricane party on the back deck of the house on Friday, then spent the remainder of the long week end on the beach. The description and pictures of Big Blue were right on point, and except for a trip to the grocery store, our cars never left the driveway. We hope to make this an annual trip!
This was our second stay at Big Blue and we were just as pleased and happy as the first time. It was clean and very well stocked. The ocean and lake views are so nice. The elevator is so helpful as my Mother simply cannot do lots of stairs. She was able to move from floor to floor and always be part of everything thanks to having it. Since I know the this area and rental environment well, I feel confident in saying that you get good value in renting Big Blue.
We enjoyed our second year in Big Blue and loved it! The immaculate rental has everything you need and more! It was great having a downstairs our adult sons could share and each floor had a lovely balcony/deck with chairs to enjoy the view! We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the breeze and the view of the ocean and beach. It was helpful having a washer and dryer and full kitchen. The elevator was great for bringing up the luggage. The property manager even came over when we couldn't figure out how to turn on the TV! It turned out we needed to just open the cabinets- LOL! He was so great to come by and he fixed a towel holder after it came loose. We loved being close to Wilmington and enjoyed the restaurants and shops there. We went back to Havana's restaurant, our local favorite, and so much is within walking distance. The shop above Squigley's ice cream is another favorite I purchased gift items in again this year. It is a wonderful rental and location. We just sat on the deck this year and were able to see Thursday night's fireworks without walking out to the beach area so that was fantastic! I would recommend this rental to anyone with older children who would appreciate having their own floor! We also loved strolling around the lake. Thank you for sharing this wonderful rental with us!
