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!"

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

The place was great and in a fantastic location. We were able to leave the car and walk everywhere. Shannon, the owner, was so helpful and responsive. We will def return. FYI- the home has window a/c units which worked out great except for the room with the one queen bed. We have little kids and needed to keep the door shut so it was a little hot in there but bearable. If you can keep the door open at night, you'll be fine.

close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent an extended weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the beach, the boardwalk, cruise on the ship and it was all so very conviently located. If you want to have a good vacation spot for a family this is the best, just about to search for another open spot on calendar so try to leave a couple days for me - enjoy

Basic maintenance has been overlooked, but this is a great location

  • 3 of 5

First let me say that this was a great vacation. You are so close to the beach, Fort Fisher, the aquarium, boardwalk, etc... there are endless things to do. The reason for three stars is because the house was....okay. The fan in the small bedroom doesn't work properly and the bulbs were broken off in the sockets on two of the lights. The porch has numerous nail heads sticking up and the outside tables are plain dangerous if you sit at them. You will need to be sure you put all food in the fridge, even if you don't normally refrigerate it due to the bugs. I understand that this is common in this climate, so just common sense I guess. It also wasn't the cleanest (the floor in particular as well as the hood fan in the kitchen). This house was fine if you are looking for a place to eat and to sleep, which is exactly what we did. I would consider staying again if the maintenance issues were taken care of. The owner was very pleasant and easy to work with, and it may be the case that the season hasn't really begun and these things will be taken care of in the near future. This is a great location and it could be a great place with a bit of TLC.

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!

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.
