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.

Cute little condo perfect for small family with a dog.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. This condo is as advertised. It was clean with enough kitchen tools to get by. It was just enough space for us our 2 boys and dog. It is a little older but we don't mind stuff like that. Easy walk to the beach and boys loved jumping in the pool. We also loved Freeman Park and the pier. We would definitely go back again.

nice place & nice location

  • 4 of 5

Had a problem with the TV in the living room & the owner answered very quickly. Got it working the next time I tried. We had rain but went to Wilmington for the day - great day trip. Our last full day was beautiful. I am planning to come back next year this time & stay at the same place. Brought our dogs & it is a end unit, so the dogs did not bother anyone. They never heard anyone walking by the unit. Next year!!!!

Really great choice!

  • 4 of 5

Having always rented single family properties at the beach I was a little hesitant to try a Condo, but I was pleasantly surprised! This unit was a perfect choice for our weekend trip...the only reason for 4 out of 5 stars is that we couldn't see the ocean from our balcony (it faced the building directly in front of us). The only view of the ocean was thru the window in the Master Bedroom. Other than that - all was good - well stocked Kitchen (limited counter space though), comfortable beds, clean bathrooms (pretty recently updated I think?), quiet unit - could not hear any neighbors, A/C worked great, convenient location, lifeguard at the beach ...all in all, other than the major wind at the beach each day, it was a great choice and a nice weekend!! With the low pet fee I might return with my dogs next time - although I thought Wilmington County prohibits dogs on the beach May - October, we saw many dogs on the beach during our stay - never got a chance to ask the beach patrol about it.
