Overview

Coastal North Carolina Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3BR, 3.5BA, Sleeps 8 Ocean front Rental Carolina Beach, North Carolina USA

This spacious townhome is a beautiful 1,875 square-foot, oceanfront dream -- with wonderful decor and murals throughout. And it's updated on a regular basis.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, a balcony looking out to the ocean, a full-size bath, and a color TV/VCR. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a full-size bath. The third bedroom has a queen-size bed, a full bath, and a deck looking out to the ocean.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove/oven, a refrigerator/freezer, a microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, coffeemaker, pots and pans, dishes, and just about everything you could think of. The washer/dryer is located off the kitchen.

The dining/living room has a queen-size sleeper sofa, a dinner table with six chairs, a bar with three bar stools, a stereo/CD player, a 42' mounted TV/DVD, and several movies -- all suited for family viewing. The deck off the living room has two tables and eight chairs -- ideal for sitting and watching the waves roll in and out.

The townhome is completely furnished with everything you'll need -- including a one-car garage. Just bring your linens and towels. We have tried to think of everything else, to make your stay a pleasant and comfortable one.

Carolina Beach has that small-town, not-heavily-populated 'feel' about it. It's located on an island that is shared with Kure Beach and Fort Fisher.

Bluewater is conveniently located approximately two miles from a large Food Lion grocery store, CVS, a movie theatre, miniature golf, an amusement park, and a public boat dock where you can book a dinner cruise or a fishing charter -- or simply watch the day's catch come in.

Carolina Beach also boasts some very good restaurants including seafood, Italian, and American restaurants -- some of which are within walking distance of our home.

So, leave your worries at home and come here to relax. It's time to come to the beach.

We look forward to your visit, and we know it will be one you'll want to repeat!

Better than I imagined

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Carolina Beach, we generally go to the Outer Banks but thought we would try a new area this year. The house itself was nicer than the pictured showed and there was WiFi in the house which was a bonus! In addition, it was very clean with great views and easy access to the beach. The location of the house is ideal, the section of the beach it is on seemed to be less crowded than the rest of the beach (on July 4th at that!). In addition, the location allowed for you to walk to a great walk-up hamburger/BBQ place, convenience store and lots of restaurants. You truly can park your car and not worry about a thing! The beach house was stocked with lots of beach toys, boogie board, beach chairs etc. The owner was very responsive and friendly which was a bonus. If you are considering trying Carolina Beach for the first time, or have gone previously, you can't beat the location and value of this property!

Great place and time for the family!

  • 5 of 5

First time to Carolina Beach, liked the area very much! Not as overwhelming as Myrtle. Bluewater has a great view and was clean. Loved going to bed and waking up to those waves. The location is great, close to downtown Wilmington or the Aquarium.

Lacking in communication, but great place!

  • 3 of 5

Let me start with the positive. We got here this afternoon & the place is beautiful! Unfortunately, the weather doesn't want to cooperate with us this weekend. Despite wind & lots of rain, we're looking forward to an awesome weekend with friends! The townhouse is very nice, pretty & has most everything you'd need. Besides bringing linens for beds & towels, don't forget paper towels &/or dish towels. We had to go buy some. &, if you're like my husband & like Charmin soft TP, remember to bring some! :)

Now, for communication...

After a very prompt & thorough initial contact, I have had a hard time getting up with the owner, Trisha, in a timely manner. It says 24 hr response time on the website, but it was usually 48 hrs+ (or sometimes even a week & a half or more) to finally connect about a question or to get paperwork from her. I only ever got a response when I started sounding frustrated. Don't try to call her cell phone listed...unlike the paperwork says, you cannot reach her on her cell phone or leave a message because the mailbox is always full. (Don't get lost on the way, that's the number listed for that too. It's easy to find though.) Once we got all the paperwork signed, money mailed, she confirmed she'd gotten it, & we finally got a written contact in hand from her, I felt better about my choice to rent this beach place.

However, at the beginning of the week, before we were to go, I emailed Trisha just to confirm that all was still on go. Two days later, she sent me an email (this is now the DAY BEFORE we were to be at the beach), stating that she hoped we were looking forward to our trip & just to know that the freezer did not open and not to use it. She said they're trying to fix it, but that we wouldn't have access to it during our 4 day/3 night stay & to contact her if I needed to about it. We have 4 adults & 4 children staying. Not only were the kiddos looking forward to fun ice cream sundae parties @ night & the adults would like some ice in our sodas, but I also have a baby with food allergies & had planned on bringing some of her food frozen to use while we are here. I wrote Trisha back via email, text, & tried calling to discuss this matter, but got no answer to any. When we closed the blinds & noticed 2 of the pieces were off, I immediately texted Trisha b/c we don't want to be charged for them. Funny thing, she wrote back immediately.

I do love the place and recommend it, but I hope she responds to you!

What a wonderful find! We have been vacationing in Carolina Beach for years, but have never stayed at a place so perfect for our families! The two masters make this property ideal for us and the location is fabulous! Thanks, Trish, for your gracious hospitality. We look forward to our next trip to Bluewater in July!

We have enjoyed Bluewater for the past several years and every year there is something new for us to enjoy. We have enjoyed this condo so much that we increased our vacation to two weeks in 2006. One of our favorite new activities was the Sunday night movie at the lake;what a great family evening! We also found new areas for adventure in the helpful book that Trish leaves so we also went kayaking this vacation. We can hardly wait for our next time at Bluewater.
