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!

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.

Worked well for us, needs more attention to cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and had our son who is 1.5, the pack and play was awesome to have he slept in it at night. We are self admitted clean freaks(not germophobes) and it lacked a little cleaning, we cleaned when we arrived, beds were made, dishes and appliances were clean, just needs a better deep clean more often, we usually stay ocean front but this is 3 rows back and it wasn't that bad of a walk but again with a 1.5 yr old it was a job taking all his stuff. Pet fee was amazing. Would we stay again yes and would recommend.

Great Condo and Very Pet Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo, this was our first time staying at a place like this and we are looking forward to doing it again! Our dog was able to come with us and she really enjoyed the dog beach (Freeman's Park) that was about a 10 minute walk from the condo. We meet other dogs that were staying in some of the other condos and their owners were very friendly and greeted us and our beloved pooch too! We just can not rave about this place any more than we already have! It was very close to the beach although we didn't spend much time at the people beach as we did the dog beach, for it was more fun to spend it with her while she was playing in the waves. We enjoyed Britt's donuts and even brought some home, which was a recommendation by the owner of the condo, which I must say was a big plus! The condo was very very clean and the parking was covered which I really loved, for in case in rained we wouldn't get soaked going to and from the car. We also enjoyed Micheal's Seafood while we were there, it was great!!! The service was really great and the food was even better, which was recommend by a prior visitor for this condo, which was in the guest book. We hope many others stay here and enjoy it as much as we did!!!!

Labor Day getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay in this unit. The two bedrooms were comfy, the ac was cool, and we had the pool to ourselves for 3 of the 4 times at the pool. Pet friendly, short walk to the beach...covered parking for your vehicle. Great value!

Convenient & Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Sunspot. The two flights of stairs isn't that bad & the parking is easy & convenient. The parking area has some hoses for washing everything off after a trip on the beach. The condo located a couple of blocks from Freeman Park where you can take your dogs & drive on the beach....we LOVED it!

The condo could use some updating but since we weren't inside that much, we didn't mind. We do recommend that the baseboards in the condo be cleaned...they were gross! Also, the walls could use a little cleaning/repainting. We were thankful it had a washer & dryer so we could go home with clean clothes & towels!!

We will be back next year for sure!

Owner's Response: Hi Sunny, I wish you had called me when you noticed the dirty base boards. Usually I receive glowing comments about how clean Della, my house keeper, keeps that place. Sometimes tenants check in a little early which may be distracting to her. I will have her go over right now before the new tenants check in. Thank you for letting me know. Julia PS: whole unit has been painted in Fall of 2014.
