Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

- Oceanfront 4BR/ 2BA House

Our house was recently used to film a scene for an upcoming movie with Richard Gere and Diane Lane called 'Nights in Rodanthe'. Movie is due to be released in October of 2008. This is one of the few oceanfront beach houses in Carolina Beach! Concrete covers the area under the house with plenty of room for parking by those staying the week with no concern of shared parking with other units. A well stocked kitchen area is designed for easy food preparation and provides room for large family meals. The enormous ocean front porch allows groups to enjoy the sights and sounds of the surf or have a relaxing outside dinner. On the street side there is a porch complete with rocking chairs and swing for those cool nights away from the ocean side breeze. There is a utility room with washer and dryer that also serves as excellent storage for beach chairs, fishing gear or even several bikes.

Activities:: The Beach House is conveniently located to the fishing marina, party cruises, restaurants and the shops of Carolina Beach. We are also located across the street from the Carolina Beach Lake that is surrounded by a concrete walking trail and also offers gazebos and paddle boats. The beach is wide and unaffected by previous hurricanes with a life guard stand that is manned daily during the summer months. Some previous guests have enjoyed excellent surf fishing in front of the house while others have gone in four wheel drive vehicles to fish on the north end of the beach.

Area:: For those of you who want to explore the area, we are 5 minutes from the recently remodeled NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher Museum and Civil War site, or you can take the ferry to Southport for a day trip to Myrtle Beach. Historic Wilmington is within a 15 minute drive and boasts many attractions such as horse-drawn carriage tours, fine dining, golfing, shopping, historic home tours, and the USS North Carolina Battleship. Some other attractions include the Children's Museum, Cape Fear Museum, The Bellamy Mansion and tours of the Screen Gems Movie Studios (where Matlock, Dawson's Creek and numerous movies have been filmed).

The Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was the perfect place for our family vacation! We loved the design. The bedrooms were private and the large kitchen and living room allowed for dining and relaxing together.

We enjoyed late nights and early mornings sitting on the spacious porch and deck. The beach access was so convenient. We are looking forward to many more vacations here.

I should tell people to not rent..... Just so I can keep it all for myself. This beach house was perfect. Plenty of room for all 10 of us. I don't think you could get a better location to the beach and board walk. The outdoor shower was so convenient when coming back from the beach. Both front and back decks were great for relaxing. My family and I are so glad we found this beach house and plan on returning for years to come. Stanley is a joy to rent from and makes it very easy and is more than willing to answer any and all questions. Thank you for allowing my family the opportunity to stay at your beach house.

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family and friends. We had the best time in this comfy home with just the right amount of space. Location! Locataion! Location! We only had to get in the car once and that was too drive to Food Lion, because everything was just a short walk away- the boardwalk, restaurants, and little shops.

We have been staying on this street for quite a few years, but this was the first time in this house, and we definitely book it for next year!

Peaceful enjoyment❤️

  • 5 of 5

As we turned the corner to pull into the beach house it was such a relief to be able to pull right in under the the house to park. It took us no time to get situated in the house. It was clean and very spacious. We spent our early mornings sitting on the front porch where it was shaded and there was always a pleasant breeze blowing. During the day we spent it on the beach. It was so nice to be able to come in and fix lunch for the family. In the evenings we walked to the board walk where our kids enjoyed Brits donuts and all the shops. My husband and son spent there nights fishing. This was a pleasant trip for our family. The house is in a great location and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice relaxing vacation. Thank you so much Stan Goodman for being so nice to our family. We hope to vacation at the beach house next summer.

Rustic Oceanfront Gem!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property with a wonderful owner who made our weekend visit to Carolina Beach a most enjoyable one. Stan helped us so much with his knowledge of the area, places to see and the best food choices. The oceanfront house was exactly as described and staying at a place where scenes with Richard Gere and Diane Lane filmed "A Night In Rodanthe" only made it even better. We look forward to our next vacation with such a great owner as Stan who truly treats his guest as friends. Thanks so much Stan for all you did for us!

This little cottage is the perfect vacation rental for a family. Was just as describe in the listing with the perfect design layout. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, lots do, great places to eat and a perfect little kitchen for a family meal when you just want to be lazy and stay in for an evening or two and prepare your own meal. The property was so very well-maintained and very clean. Stanley, the owner was such a love. He was quick to give us information when ask about sites and places to eat around town and wanted us to call him if we needed anything. This was the most fun and relaxing our family has had together in a long time. Thank you for the privilege Stanley for having us and we plan to come back in the future! We highly recommend this little paradise by the ocean to everyone!
