BOOK NOW FOR Summer/Fall 2017! Why settle for 'OLD' when you can have 'New' - This condo has been totally renovated - New kitchen, bathrooms, furniture, floors, appliances .....This is an Oceanfront Condo Complex with Ocean/Beach/Pool view! This newly renovated condo is at Sandpebbles, a highly desirable ocean front complex. Two Full Size Pools. This condo is centrally located in Carolina Beach.

There are 4 outdoor showers positioned on two beach walk-ways, private to the Condo Complex. Enjoy watching dolphins swim in the surf and wake up to the sunrise over the ocean from this 3rd floor condo (Amazing View). The beach stretches for miles, great for a long walk or jog.

This condo has an ocean/beach/pool view directly straight out from inside the Master Bedroom (Most of the other condos in this Beach Front Complex - you have to go out to the deck and look left or right). The condo has a fully equipped kitchen, two roomy bedrooms, 2 full baths, living/dining room and a washer/dryer for your convenience. Unit is freshly painted, new bedding, and is equipped for simple housekeeping. For your entertainment, the condo has a flat screen TV with DVD. Covered parking for 2 vehicles located under the building. Sand Pebbles Complex is unique as it is Ocean Front with two ocean front pools, well maintained, under building parking and centrally located to Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.

Within walking distance you'll find plenty: boardwalk and arcade, ice cream shop, the best seafood restaurants around,a park and small lake with paddle boats and walking trails, tiki hut on the beach (you can listen to live bands), convenience store, beach shops, bike rentals, and much more. Just across the street from the condo, there are two amazing restaurants (Uncle Vinnie's & The Cove). Visit the North Carolina Aquarium located at the south end of the island, USS North Carolina Battleship or take a short ferry ride to Southport for the day. Historic Wilmington is only 20 minutes away. If you love the surf, sand, and long walks on the beach, this luxurious vacation condo is the place for you.

The town of about 5,600 friendly residents has a quaint vintage feel sure to transport you back to your childhood days at the beach. Yet it provides every modern convenience you could hope for and you’ll be welcomed as one of their own! You are only five miles from Fort Fisher and the newly renovated NC Aquarium, which houses petting tank to shark tanks! From Fort Fisher take a 30 minute ferry ride to Southport, another quaint little NC coastal town with great antique and specialty shops. You may be lucky enough to watch a movie being filmed. This is the home of Dawson's Creek and films such as 'The Wedding' with Halle Berry and 'Domestic Disturbance' with John Travolta and Vince Vaughn. The locals have great stories to tell! Approximately 20 minutes from Carolina Beach is Wilmington, NC. Enjoy an ice cream cone as you walk the waterfront in historic Wilmington. Visit the USS North Carolina Battleship, shop at the Cotton Exchange, take a carriage ride.

Carolina Beach restaurants range from five-star to very good family restaurants. You’ll love the vintage decor and prices of local restaurants dating back to our early days. Of course, no trip to Carolina Beach is complete without a visit to the Boardwalk. Grab a famous Britt's donuts and coffee, head for the boardwalk and watch the day come alive.

Anglers, the fishing is great! Fish on the beach, from the pier, catch a head boat, charter a boat, or launch your own at a public launch.

About Michael

My wife and I love Carolina Beach. There is so much to do - the beaches are beautiful, many restaurants and a great place to unwind and relax. As we near retirement, we can't think of a better place to spend our later years and enjoy nature (ocean and beaches).

Michael purchased this condo in 2007

Why Michael chose Coastal North Carolina

Carolina Beach has some of the best beaches in North Carolina! Most of the vacation condo units have not been updated (most built in the 1980s). Our unit has been totally modernized with new bathrooms/kitchen/flooring......

What makes this condo unique

My wife and I treat this Beach Condo as our 2nd home. We want our guests to experience the same exceptional quality & value as we would expect for ourselves. Every year we review our guests recommendations in regards to additions/changes.. (we have a guest book in the condo for guests to provide there comments). As a result we have upgraded both bathrooms, kitchen, flooring and even our furniture with NEW. We have added new cabinets, granite counters, lighting..... to make your travel more comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

FIVE STAR *****: The ocean water was beautiful. We rented bikes from the local vendor, just up the street. We rode the bikes to the aquarium. It was worth the bike ride as the aquarium was amazing. Having the use of the 2-pools was fantastic as an alternative to the ocean sometimes. Brit's doughnuts is a must! (Fresh hot donuts made before your eyes). Nice restaurant named Gribby's - Amazing Food. You can't miss Squigley's Ice Cream - Best ice cream anywhere. All in All an amazing vacation - Excellent Condo - Great location.

Wonderful Time in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the condo. it was clean, well furnished and had everything we needed. It was exactly as you described, and I knew from the second I walked in that we were going to love it. My oldest daughter and I spent a lot of time in the evenings on the balcony listening to the waves and having some great dad/daughter time. We loved the condo's proximity to the beach well as the two swimming pools in the complex, which we took full advantage of almost every night. As for Carolina Beach, it was wonderful. We hit the beach every day for some fun in the sun. We also did a few other things, including a visit to Fort Fisher and the USS North Carolina in Wilmington. We had pizza at Vinny's (delicious), ice cream at Squiggly's (amazing), and ate at several other local restaurants. We also had a blast at the boardwalk, and enjoyed watching the fireworks on Thursday night. My wife and youngest daughter enjoyed every second of the week. Overall, the locals were very kind and gracious, and we felt safe and welcome the entire time. It truly was the perfect place for my family to have a nice relaxing week. I will certainly keep you in mind, and definitely use you again if we ever make it back to Carolina Beach.

Sincerely,

The King Family

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this comfortable condo! Had everything we needed and we enjoyed a wonderful time! Michael was wonderful to work with and he graciously and promptly helped us with a last minute issue! The Carolina Beach area is full of terrific places to enjoy when you are not relaxing on the beach. Loved having very comfortable beds and the entire condo is clean and organized! We just wished for more time! Would love to come again!!

Clean, convenient, perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated condo with perfect views of the sea. Very clean and fully equipped kitchen was so nice. 2 pools and they were never crowded. You could almost park your car and not have to leave for anything. Uncle Vinny's pizzeria across the street is amazing, gas station within walking distance, and the boardwalk is about 1/2 mile. Thanks for letting us stay.

Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

Cons: The biggest drawback is the absence of an elevator which would not be so bad except you have to carry everything up and down four full sets of stairs. The condo is like being on the fourth story since the building is raised. The refrigerator/freezer does not have an ice-maker. The bedrooms do not have televisions. There is very limited counter space in the bathrooms. There are no chairs at the pools---unless you want to carry them from the condo up and down the four sets of stairs (about 50 stairs--four stories up.) Parking is not easy. There are covered spots that are first come, first serve, but the fit is tight and you have to be pretty good at navigating around other vehicles. The unit is not oceanfront, although the complex is. You can hear and see other guests--especially from the master bedroom, living room and balcony. There are blinds on windows so you can prevent others from seeing you. The master bedroom mattress probably needs replaced and is overly soft from being worn down and the master bedroom door will not stay open unless it is propped. We did not use the sleeper sofa so I am not sure about its comfort. I would not want to have six people staying there because of the size, four would be comfortable. The furnishings---beds, pillows, bedspreads, sofa, rugs, kitchen table + chairs, etc could use updating but they are not horrible.

PROS: The floors, appliances, counter-tops, bathroom showers and vanities are new and very nice. That is a big plus! The kitchen is very nice. You can see the ocean from the master bedroom window, and the beach is NOT a long walk away. The location is not too far from restaurants and the boardwalk, in fact, they are within walking distance about 1/2 mile. The wifi works well and so does the AC! The price is pretty good, especially compared to the hotel rooms. The owner was easy to work with. Check in and check out directions were simple and easy to follow. Overall, this condo met our needs and maybe I am spoiled, but I would have liked to have had updated newer furniture and a lower level unit.

Owner's Response: My husband and I appreciate constructive feed back from our guests as it help us make changes/additions during the off-season. This is our 2nd home and we try to consider what we would want as a guest to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We realize that we will never make 100% of our guests completely satisfied as everyone has different preferences/needs. Fortunately, 99% of our guests are extremely satisfied with our condo (see other 70+ reviews). A majority of our guests are return guests! This condo is on the 3rd floor for the fantastic view of ocean/beach/pool. If you have difficulty going up stairs, you probably should get a 1st floor unit. There are very few Beach Front Condo Complexes with elevators. We have a flat screen TV in living room. Most guests come for the beach. We replaced all furniture 2-3 years ago and upgraded the entire condo (Kitchen/Bathrooms/Flooring) for the comfort of our guests. Very few condos in this complex are upgraded. A majority of parking is underneath the building away from the sun (always a plus). Yes, the HOA could put chairs down by the pools, I will put in a suggestion. Appreciate the (PROS) Large kitchen (granite), views of ocean, close to beach, close to restaurants (across street) and walking distance to boardwalk, ease of instructions....Upgraded WiFi Internet, new AC system.... Price of condo rental.. Hey, we do our best and do appreciate construction feedback. Suggestion: Please be sure to read all our other reviews too, before making your decision to rent. Thank You!

Best Vacation Condo - Terrific View of Ocean/Beach - Clean

  • 5 of 5

Thank You for letting my husband and I stay at your condo. It was everything the listing said and more. Very clean and loved the upgrades. We enjoyed the terrific view of Ocean/Beach from the balcony and MBR. We loved sitting on the balcony in the captain chairs, having our favorite drink and enjoying the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Perfect location, not to close and not too far from the Carolina Beach Board Walk. The beach wide, clean and not to busy. We can't wait to come back. We will let our friends/family know about this condo and how they don't need to look any further.

Great Condo!

  • 4 of 5

We live in Wilmington and needed some place to stay while our house was being renovated. This place was clean, we stocked and had a great view. The only reason I can't go full 5 stars is it is on the third floor (I know good exercise) and the view while great is between to buildings. But, neither of these is a deal breaker. I would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very positive review. Yes, we have upgraded the condo inside with a new kitchen and bathrooms which provides a much better experience. Yes, being on the 3rd floor might have some drawbacks, but as you mentioned the "great view" of Ocean/beach/pool makes it worth it! Glad you will be coming back.
