About the property

Beachfront Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Beds, 2 Bath (Sleeps 6-7)

Booking now for Summer/Fall 2017! Sands V Carolina This is a Direct Beach/Ocean/Beach First Floor Beach Front Condo! Why settle for "Old" when you can have "New"? New Bathrooms (All tiled stand-up shower in MBR with granite counter-tops, new guest bath-tub and tiled wall/granite counter-top), granite counter-top in kitchen..... .Everyone Loves the EXTRA Huge Beach Front Deck that leads to both the Master bedroom (King Bed) and Living room with amazing views of the beach/ocean. This has been newly renovated and is decorated in bright and beautiful beach colors. Most of our guests spend much of there time on our huge extra large covered deck that has a porch swing, high sitting captain chairs and high up outdoor table to enjoy the view, dine, or play games. Even if their is rain, you can sit out on the deck enjoying the beach/ocean sights. Just below the deck is an outdoor shower and in the grass area, we have a BBQ to enjoy preparing your food outside. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, full private bath, and sliding glass doors to the deck. You can lie in bed and watch the sunrise over the ocean. The second bedroom has a brand new queen bed as well as a bunk bed with futon double sofa bed on bottom and twin on top. This guest room has its own sliding glass door, overlooking the 'full size' pool. Also, if Fire Safety is important to you (Could save your life) - FOR YOUR SAFETY: This building has just been updated with a new modern fire protection system that includes fireproofed fire resistant sheet-rock underneath building, heat detection system, temporal fire alarm signals/sounds and smoke detectors in each condo unit. Very few condo buildings on the beach have fire protection! Also, new in 2017 - The entire outside of building has been upgraded with new siding/railing....

Enjoy watching dolphins swim in the surf and wake up to the sunrise over the ocean. The beach stretches for miles, great for long walks or a jog.

This condo has a fully equipped kitchen with new granite counter tops, two roomy bedrooms, 2 full baths (Newly Remodeled) , brand new queen size fold out coach in the living room, and a washer and dryer for your convenience. The unit has new kitchen appliances (stove,oven, microwave and dishwasher), has new tile flooring, new blankets, and is equipped for simple housekeeping. For your entertainment, the condo has a Flat Screen TV w/DVD and library of great movies. Situated on the first floor means you don't have to climb stairs all day, but still have the fantastic views of the beach/ocean. But the best area is the amazingly huge deck (12' x 24') overlooking the ocean: the perfect spot for outdoor living, offering shade from the sun, or cover on a rainy day.

Within a short drive or walking distance you'll find plenty: boardwalk and arcade, ice cream shops, seafood restaurants, a state park, a small lake with paddle boats and a paved path all the way around, beach shops, and bike rentals, as well as a discount variety store, thrift store, and the supermarket. See fireworks (Thursday nights in the summer) from the beach, and free outdoor family movies at the nearby lake on Sunday nights.

Visit the North Carolina Aquarium located at the south end of the island, or take a short ferry ride to Southport for the day, where you can enjoy quaint shopping, sight seeing and wonderful local seafood dining on the water.

Historic Wilmington, on the Cape Fear river only 20 minutes away, is where you'll find the USS North Carolina Battleship, ghost walks, horse drawn carriage rides, boat excursions, waterfront restaurants, antique shops, and more.

Carolina Beach restaurants range from elegant to family style. A short walk to the Ocean Grill Restaurant and Tiki Bar offers outdoor bar service and live music while overlooking the ocean. Of course, no trip to Carolina Beach is complete without a visit to the Boardwalk. Grab a famous Britt's doughnuts and coffee or some fudge, and enjoy the Ferris wheel and carnival rides throughout the summer.

Visit The Carolina Beach Marina and take a sightseeing cruise or charter fishing expedition. Anglers, the fishing is great! Fish on the beach, from the pier, catch a head boat, charter a boat, or launch your own at a public launch. There are many water sports to enjoy. You can rent or bring your own equipment for snorkeling, surfing and boating adventures.

In addition to the many parks, dog parks, trails and bike paths, the Carolina Beach State Park is nearly 1,000 acres of exploration and trails, including a boat launch area.

This town of about 5,600 friendly residents offers a quaint, vintage atmosphere, 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! If you love the surf, sand, and long walks on the beach, this comfortable and convenient vacation condo is the place for you!

About Michael

My wife and I love the Beach. This is our getaway beach front home that provides the relaxation and comfort -that get's us away from it all! Every year we upgrade the condo making it better and better each year. We listen to the many guests that have stayed here year after year and upgrade to their expectations. Like most of our guests, we spend most of the time on the "huge deck" - very unique in Carolina Beach. Their we can see the dolphins (if we are fortunate), enjoy our morning coffee/bfast and wine/dinner in the evenings. Also, unique is that we have a 2nd deck off the guest room that is directly over the full size pool area. Great if you have children/grand children as you can watch them from the condo. We hope you enjoy the condo as much as we do and our many returning guests each year!

Michael purchased this condo in 2011

Car: recommended

Beautiful Large Family Beach/Ocean. The full size pool is directly off the guest bedroom (sliding glass door). Short walk down to the Tiki Bar (bands/music/great rood) overlooking the ocean, but far enough away for quiet. Many restaurants, ice cream shops, and markets are just a short walk away. The nearby lake has paddle boats, walking trail, and free outdoor family movies on Sunday nights throughout the summer. See Thursday night fireworks from the beach (in season). The area is nice to walk around and safe to ride bikes.

Carolina Beach is just south/east of Wilmington, NC. There are lots of things to do and see - museums, state parks, ferry rides, lakes, running and biking trails, tennis, golf, several triathlons in the area, music and food festivals, boardwalk, piers, and so much more. At the same time, this is a very laid back, relaxed, and family-friendly coastal town. So, What are you waiting for?

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Vacation was amazing.  The condo was clean and decorated just like we would have our own home.  The kids enjoyed the pool immensely and most of the week we had it to ourselves.  The view was breathtaking.  We spent many mornings and finished off many evenings sitting on the deck and enjoying the ocean.  Also it was very nice that most of the shops and local places to eat were within walking distance or just a few minutes drive from the condo.  Thank you so much for sharing this with us and we would love to come back again!

Myself and 5 Friends enjoyed our weekend retreat! The property was nicely decorated and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite was the deck with the amazingly breathtaking view of the ocean. We enjoyed coffee and pastries in the morning and in the afternoon we had the perfect setting to paint kindness rocks. We watched movies in the evening and played card games. The location to the boardwalk with shops and restaurants was perfect. We will definitely make this an annual event and hope the owners will have us again!

Fabulous Ocean Front

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as pictured and very clean. The owner was very prompt, responsive and easy to work with. The condo was well maintained, clean and in a great beach front location. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo was great for 2 couples to share, we each had our own bathroom/bedroom. Each room had their own balcony. We will travel to this area again and would definitely stay in this condo again, a great find! Thx Ed; Teresa, John, Claudia...

Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is wonderful. You can't ask for a better location and it's right on the beach. Enjoyed our time together as a family in a very family friendly location. We felt right at home here. The views are spectacular and listening to the waves is priceless. The property is clean and bright and it looks exactly as it does in the pictures. Hope to be back here next summer.

Beautiful view from deck....otherwise filthy

  • 1 of 5

I was very disappointed. Photos on website do not accurately reflect how dirty this place is. Their were throw rugs that have not been washed in months....years. The furniture is a collection of yard sale odds and ends. This place looks like a rental cash cow where the owner is making too much revenue to care. Very disappointed!

Owner's Response: Sorry about your disappointment. Every guest brings their own likes, dislikes and experiences and we realize we will never fulfill 100% of all guests expectations. Fortunately, If you read the previous 65+ reviews (almost all 5 Star Reviews), you will find that our guests had a quality experience in a very clean environment. We have a very high guest return rate! My husband and I are all about cleanliness and a quality experience for our guests. In regards to our furniture - every year we upgrade including new couch, mattresses, chairs, Flat Screen TV,... all replace within the last 2 years (new). The two throw rugs along with blankets.... are washed often. At least every other stay. We use a top quality Cleaning Service that seldom ever get's any complaints. If a guest is ever unhappy with the condition of the condo when they arrive, let us know and the cleaning service will come back (they are into quality too). This is our 2nd home and as such, we want to make sure everything is "top notch", as if we were their ourselves. Most condos along the beach are in 30 year old buildings and have not been upgraded. We spend much on upgrading our bathrooms, kitchen, flooring, furniture, .... and the building was just upgraded (like new) with guests safety in mind (new modern fire protection system, heat detection...),,,,, Most buildings along beach do not have this.
