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.

Relaxing, comfortable unit

  • 4 of 5

Nice , attractive, clean. Would have been nice to have a wider selection of TV channels ( MSNBC , CNN).

No toaster which is pretty basic

Cute condo in an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest and most affordable places that my family has rented. The location is a short walk to the beach and you can see the water from the balcony.

The condo itself is clean and tidy. The pet fee was low and it was nice to be able to bring my fur baby with us. It was also nice to be able to clean up after her with a functioning vacuum cleaner. :) so many times I have rented a house, found the vacuum and it didn't work.

The pool is really clean! There are really no chairs around it though, so bring your own unless you are okay laying on the pavement around it.

The Beach was not crowded and is really just a 2 minute walk. Don't worry about traffic, because there is not much down this way.

Nags Head waters tend to be choppy, making me nervous about my child playing in the waves. The waves here were not as intense and it was easier for him to play comfortably out there. (Age 11)

Attractions:

This was our first year visiting this beach so I wanted to throw my 2 cents out there for other newbies :)

The Sawmill: Excellent family style restaurant and southern cooking. Their staff was super sweet and gave us some tips on what to do while we were here.

Micheal's Seafood: Equally as excellent AND the 4 of us ate steamed shrimp entrees for around $90 after the 20% tip. We usually go to Captain George's and it costs around $120, so this was definitely a treat!

Also, their mashed potatoes are amazing. I could have eaten a bowl of those for dinner and been fine.

Squiggly's Ice Cream: We liked it so much we went twice. Head over there early to avoid a line. Cutest Ice Cream / Gift Shop ever. So many choices and a great group of ladies working there.

The Boardwalk was cool and I'm glad that we checked it out. I compared it to my local county fair which I am usually pleased with. The ticket prices were reasonable for the rides and the folks working them were friendly. I did unfortunately purchase 2 flat Mountain Dew soft drinks from one of the vendors, which was disappointing.

There are also a lot of shops you can check out, restaurants, bars and of course sweets. (My favorite)

Poppy's Palace is a local arcade. We had a blast in there for around $30 with the 4 of us playing games.

Parking:

If you happen to drive a full size SUV/Truck, you may experience parking issues. Most of the spaces are very small and accommodate cars and midsize vehicles, but the larger you get, the harder it is to get

Owner's Response: Hi Tuesdaay, so glad you had a great time. Yes Carolina Beach is very different from Nags Head. Much safer in the water. I do hope you checked out Britt's Donuts on the boardwalk. Best ever!

Unclean

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to a dirty condo with dishes in the sink, cigarette butts on the balcony and urine on the toilet! 2 lights were burnt out. Wasn't refunded deposit due to not taking out the recycling-which I expect happens to most guests that stay there. I'd recommend doing yourself a favor and look for a motel!

Owner's Response: OWNERS BEWARE: This young lady is a scam artist and she didn't deny it when I confronted her. I inspected my condo the day before they arrived. There were no dishes in the sink, cigarette butts or dirty toilets. The unit was in excellent condition. They did not call me or complain upon their arrival. They had called me asking for an early check in, which I allowed, so they had my number. When the housekeeper arrived the next morning, empty liquor bottles were on the counters, a box of trash and a bag of trash in the kitchen, beds unmade with the dirty sheets balled up in the beds. I suppose they were too hung over to clean up. Then the next afternoon when I kept half of her deposit, she emailed HomeAway with her made up story. Just to keep peace and my good reputation, I am returning her money, which she knew would occur. I wonder how many times she has used this ploy. So, if you receive a request from Kristen Neal from Raleigh, just say NO!
