Guestbook comments from the manager

"We really enjoyed that house. It is just a perfect location; the ad was correct- we parked the car and didn't use it again until we were ready to leave. Even my extremely pregnant wife was able to walk to everything we did!"

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family. Walking distance to everything. We were glad to be able to have our pets along with us too. We had plenty of room to spread out, beds were comfortable. While it is an older home everything was in good working order. We enjoyed our stay and would return again.

Close to beach

  • 2 of 5

If you're considering this place, you should consider a few things. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing place, this wouldn't be recommended. It's also in the center of everything and it's noisy. If you plan to eat in, the kitchen is barely equipped for it, so plan accordingly. This house is older, and has the aromas that go with an older beach house. However, it is close to the beach and the beach is great! I will say that Shannon was very helpful and tried to make us as comfortable as she possibly could. There are great choices for dinner nearby and we enjoyed them all. Must go to Britt's donuts- it's a life changing experience!

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you found the surrounding area to be noisy and that it effected your stay with us. We are located in a center of the activity and understand that this location, on a busy beach such as Carolina Beach, may not best suit all guests. We do offer other properties farther north on the island which have a quieter atmosphere for vacationers who prefer that over the convenience of the location of this home. We greatly appreciate your feedback. We equip each kitchen at the beginning of the season. It sounds like some of the supplies may no longer be at the home, at this time. We will schedule an inventory check to ensure that we are providing the basic needs for cooking in the property. Thank you for your feedback!

Great location!

Close to beach and Boardwalk. Great location for price. I recommend the Sea Witch, which is right around the corner. We only drove to get groceries.

Great Beach House and only 3 rows back from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had scheduled our visit to Carolina Beach 5/16 thru 5/20 but circumstances had us arriving a day early. We called the company handling our reservations and asked if we could pay for an extra day and get in a day early. As it turned out this unit was being updated and they were about to call us and offer us a different unit and it was available on 5/15 and we could have it for the same price as what we had paid for this unit., so we gladly took it. I can't say enough about Shannon and her staff, they were so helpful and accommodating which helped make the vacation a great one.

The house was 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and 3 rows back from the beach. It was very clean and well appointed with everything we needed including a washer and dryer. The only small down side was the not having the water and ice machine hooked up on the new refrigerator.We sat on the back deck in the mornings and evenings listening to the sound of the ocean or on the front porch watching the yachts on the canal. We were in walking distance of the boardwalk and lots of restaurants and shops which we took advantage of. The Port Fisher Ferry was only 10 minutes away and we used that to go to South Port and Oak Island to explore.

I strongly recommend using this company, the pricing was more than reasonable, and was everything I could have possibly wanted in a vacation rental.

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. The accommodations were fantastic and really clean. It is very close to the beach and to many attractions at Carolina Beach. We really enjoyed the convenience store just across the street! We will definitely be coming back, Lord willing! We give it 5 stars for sure!

Carolina Beach is a great place to vacation and The Big Blue Pelican is located right in the center of it all. Once you arrive, you can park your car and put away your keys until your departure. Visit Kate's Pancake House for a great breakfast and Gibby's for dinner. Walk to both of these restaurants, along with many others for a great meal. Enjoy the nightlife? No need to call a cab -- there are a handful of great bars within a 5 minute walk of our property. If fishing is your thing, this is the location for you. We are located directly between the Yacht Basin and the beach access. The beach access is an easy 500 feet away from your front door!

Carolina Beach is a family friendly vacation destination. You and your little ones can easily walk to the amusement park for an evening of fun, complete with fireworks! History buffs will enjoy the historical Fort Fisher while beach bums will be amazed at the beautiful, unobstructed coastline it offers -- just a 5 minute drive! While you are there, check out the Fort Fisher Aquarium for a great educational experience for adults and children alike.


We encourage you to view the Town of Carolina Beach's website for information on Carolina Beach's pet rules. Pets are NOT allowed on Carolina Beach during the peak season. They are allowed in certain areas so give the town a call for more information.
