The Sun Spot for Those Needing a Little (or Lot of) Sun!

Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

Newly decorated third story end unit with ocean view at Ocean Harbor. Enjoy the relaxing, inviting sun and sea breeze! High grade mattresses on queen and twin beds, includes bed linens. Both baths newly renovated. All the amenities anyone could want! Dog friendly, but cats not allowed due to others' allergies.

There's always a lot to do at the beach, with the boardwalk close by! Beautiful sandy beach ideal for walking or jogging, shell hunting, people watching or just soaking up the warm sun. Lots of activities for all ages- offshore fishing, scuba diving, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing/kites, biking, sensational golfing throughout the area, the fantastic aquarium at Ft. Fisher and the historical Civil War museum and old fort layout.

Take a day trip to historical Southport (30 min. by ferry from south end of the island - great bicycling trip too, from condo only have to pedal 5 flat miles to ferry), then on to secluded Baldhead Island, accessible by ferry only, with bikes and golf carts being the sole modes of transportation.

There is plenty of shopping in the area for the shop-a-holics (or on rainy days, which is quite rare), including the new Mayfair Center. Don't forget, the Outlet Shops are one hour away in Myrtle Beach.

Easy commute through the Wilmington International Airport. The Wilmington river front is only 20 minutes away with a true southern gentility and charm that is such an ingrained part of the area. Beautiful historic homes, fine dining, friendly bistros and coffee houses.

If you haven't enjoyed all of this by the time you leave, then the lure of the sand and sun, the seashells and seagulls, and the lull of the ocean waves must have mesmerized you! Enjoy, because we natives certainly do! Beware though, it is hard to return to reality.

I absolutely loved the place!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 2 bedrooms and a pull out queen in the living room. The ocean is 1 block away walking distance from the place. They have a pool, and you can also bring your dogs with you!! A very nice place we will definitely be back!

Comfortable and Dog Friendly

  • 4 of 5

Positives:

Dog friendly with a low fee

Comfortable beds and furniture

Just a short 2-3 minute walk to the beach

Has a pool

A/C worked great

Had some kitchen utensils, dishes, toilet paper, and extra blankets

Parking for more than 1 vehicle

Needs Improvement:

The condo needs a good deep cleaning... the kitchen cabinets were covered in spatter and the fridge had to be wiped out before I could use it.

Master bedroom carpet was torn in a couple places

Only beach view is a tiny one from the master bedroom window

Convenient, and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location! Walked to the beach every day and night. Great restaurants near by too.. Comfortable and affordable!... Only thing we would have liked is a couple more tv channels for when we needed to get out of the sun and clean up before dinner... Other than that it was perfect!
