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.

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

Great Location, Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with a great ocean/beach view, we highly recommend it! Condo is close but not too close to restaurants, Carolina Bach downtown board walk, lake.... (perfect location). The 2 pools were very enjoyable. We have stayed in CB before and had a difficult time finding a condo that had "full size pool", most don't have one or if they do it's only a shallow wading pool. These are "full size" which really made a difference to us. Really like the upgrades - Large Kitchen, bathrooms & furniture. The condo was extremely clean when we arrived. Many times we found in past vacation rentals, the unit was not cleaned well so we were so happy when we first arrived and the condo was very clean! Important to us. We can't wait to reutrn. Thank You..

Overall great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very nice and especially clean, and that means a lot coming from a clean freak like me. Haha. Nice upgrades in the bathrooms and kitchen. It was perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids ages 5 and 7. Very easy access to the beach and pool- Just a walk across the parking lot.

Great Beach Trip!

  • 5 of 5

loved it. condo was as described. the previous reviews are very accurate. the beach is lovely here and not too crowded. we enjoyed the condo pools and was not too busy either. we loved the balcony! the condo is nicely updated. great location as you are close to the boardwalk/restaurants but not too close to be in the noise/crowds.

only thing to note is that linens are not provided - not a big deal as you can bring your own (we did) or you can rent. additionally, bring your own blanket/comforter - the ones there are pretty worn and outdated. otherwise, the condo was VERY clean and had paper products to get us started for the week.

we would definitely come back to this condo! Fireworks every thursday during the summer - can be seen from the condo beach! lovely surprise!

Owner's Response: Thank You Jessica for the nice review. Glad you enjoyed the condo beach/pools.... In regards to linens - thanks for letting us know about the blanket/comforter - they are less than 1 year new but yes, they probably get worn sooner then normal. We will replace. We found over the years that many guests like to bring their own linens and or like to order them from Seaside Linens to be delivered prior to arrival and picked up after departure. They have all our bed sizes, easy to order and best of all inexpensive. There linens are fresh/clean.... Our past tenants love them. (www.seasidelinen.com) Yes, the Fireworks are not to be missed on Thursday nights. Look forward to your return and glad you like our many upgrades to the condo.

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!!
