                                                        Good location

                                                        Mary H.Polk City, iowa

                                                        Close to the beach and pet friendly. We had an issue at arrival, but after a few mishaps, the manager, who was easy to work with, relocated us to a different location that worked out better. Enjoyed our sunny deck.

                                                        Good for the price

                                                        Melissa W.

                                                        Short walking distance to the Atlantic Ocean. The beautiful upgraded boardwalk begins near this destination. Close to many stores. Close to Fort Fisher Ferry that will take you across to Southport with or without your vehicle for $5.00 which cuts an hour or more off your drive if you want to go to Myrtle Beach, SC! Close to Wilmington. Overall good location! Price was right!

                                                        Great location ...loved being able to take a short walk to see sunrise and moon rise on the beach!

                                                        Brenda B.

                                                        No surprises! Everything was just as described in the listing. Great accommodations for our family and pets. Kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals and dine in or we could take a short walk to dine out at variety of restaurants. Glad we brought folding chairs to enjoy front porch live entertainment coming from across the street! The Big Blue was an authentic beach house! The only suggestion I would make is to replace living room furniture or clean it thoroughly. It was a cozy place to kick back at the end of a day on the beach!

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! We have already purchased new Serta living room furniture for the property which will arrive in a few weeks. We appreciate the feedback and hope you will stay with us on your next visit to Carolina Beach!

                                                        Unfortunately Not the Best Visit

                                                        Gary F.Denton, NC

                                                        The unit we stayed in was right across the street from a gas station and on a somewhat busy road. The two window air conditioners were barely able to keep the place cool and this was the cool time of the year. There were dead bugs in several of the rooms, but then I guess that is to expected by the beach.

                                                        Our worse issue was that we had several items stolen from us on the beach directly out from this unit. We left our chairs and a small cooler on the beach while we took a short walk and when we cam back they were gone.

                                                        The area is not very safe and we for one will not be returning to the area any time soon.

                                                        On a positive note.....

                                                        The Aquarium, State Park and Fort Fisher were great attractions to visit.

                                                        Great Deal for the location and price!

                                                        Kathleen P.

                                                        Excellent location. The unit was a 2 minute walk to the beach acces ramp. The Mariner was across tbe street. Everything else was i walking distance. Excellent property for the money. Furnishings outdated but my family and I were there for the beach!

                                                        Affordable, close to the beach and you're across from a store and a restaurant not too much walking.

                                                        Tommy F.

                                                        Nice rooms a block away from the beach, and plenty of room on the inside for guests. Very clean and taken care of and the owner answered any questions we had about the property.


                                                        Carolina Beach, NC, USA

                                                        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 Dock and Dine 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. This property is located at the North end of the Boardwalk extension.
