We do not provide sheets and towels you can either bring your own or rent from a local linen company. I would think this condo is wheelchair accessible. I don't know the rules on that as far as door sizes, etc. But I do know there is a ramp access to the elevator and a wheelchair can get into the condo. I am a pet lover, but unfortunately, the HOA does not allow animals.

At home on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was much better than described. The place was very clean and quiet. The beach was very easy to walk to even with a 1 year old. The elevator was an obvious plus. The view from the balcony was breath taking. I was a little apprehensive to book a condo online, but the excellent customer service provided by Sharon put my worries to ease. This is most definetly a place that I will vacation for many more summers to come. Thank You Sharon for a wonderful experience. Tiffany

We didn't spend much time in the condo..

  • 3 of 5

The pictures look way better than what you actually get. I've stayed at the cabana a few times and am aware that it is an old building but this condo needs some serious work. I understand that we visited the end of the season so things were probably in their worst condition of the year but the list is long.. 50% of the light bulbs were out which made it hard to do makeup etc. The inside of the cabinets in the kitchen are filthy, the floor was sticky and to top all of that off the bed is actually up against the wall (they pulled it away from the wall for the pictures.) Think of how many sweaty bodies have touched that wall! Since we are on the subject of the bed... It was literally the sorriest excuse for a mattress that I have ever slept on, you can feel every spring and just moving your arm was so loud it woke your spouse up! For this price you can stay at a much nicer condo! The three stars are only because we still had a great time and I did not contact the property owners about any of my concerns at the time. My husband and I haven't gotten away for a while and didn't want to be bothered.

Great gated condo complex. Great location walking distance to restaurants and bars. Right off the boardwalk with at least a 1/4 of decked walkway down the beach. SeaWitch is right across street for cold drinks. 2 blocks from marina where you can find the Winner gambling fleet. Thanks Sharon will keep you guys in mind for next trip to Carolina Beach.

Great location & view!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 3 that stayed in this condo for a week over July 4th. The location was very convenient to the boardwalk area and right on the beach! Great spot to view the fireworks! Really enjoyed my morning coffee watching the waves. The owner was very responsive and helpful with any/all of our questions. The only thing I would note for potential renters is that the front bedroom can be rather noisy at night when the bar across the street has a live band playing. But, the main living area was super quiet and cozy. Overall, we had a great experience!

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the low key, relaxed, and quiet environment at Cabana. It was NEVER crowded. We never had to wait for parking, elevator, crowded pools, etc. The condo is on the smaller side, but we had plenty of room for our family (4 adults and 2 small children under age 3). Sharon was super to work with, and just a few blocks away if needed. Super close to the boardwalk (rides, games, food, etc). I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Hanna, it was so nice to meet you and your family and I am so happy you enjoyed staying at the Cabana. I arrived shortly before the cleaning team to pick up the laundry and drop off the new linens and imagine my surprise to find you had cleaned all the sheets and towels before departing and left the condo in excellent condition. Thank you SO much for that and I sincerely hope to see you at Cabana again! Fondly, Sharon

Location, Location, Location & this one is great!

  • 5 of 5

The absolute best thing about this unit was the view & location! The new boardwalk is between beach & condo. We watched boats, dolphins, surf school & young lifeguard training classes. We really enjoyed our stay here! It was just my husband & I so we put our luggage on the twin beds & that is where full bathroom is located. We slept in main bedroom with half bath attached. Very nice to have 2 bathrooms. We had some family over one afternoon and living room/balcony is plenty of room for 5-6 people to hang out & talk. Kitchen is compact - really only big enough for one. We do not normally cook so fine for us. Easy walk to Britt's each night. Large refrigerator. Ice machine in building. Interior was comfortable & lived in. It was also very nice to have a small washer & dryer in the condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you Valerie for sharing your positive experience at Sharon's Cabana! I agree the location is great for walking everywhere and not having to get in and out of the car to go places. I hope you come again and thank you for leaving the condo in such fine condition. Sincerely, Sharon

There are biking trails and bicycles to rent right next to the condo building. You can also rent kyacks, and beach items. The Carolina Beach State Park is renowned for their beautiful scenic hiking trails and home of the venus flytrap.
