Overview

Coastal North Carolina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Luxury Oceanfront Condo: Wifi, Pool and Linens Included

Welcome to 'A Place at the Beach'. A Luxury Oceanfront, Non-Smoking, 2 bedroom condo in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. You can smell the ocean air you are so close in this 3rd floor, direct oceanfront unit.

The pictures say it all but I will try to describe some of the best features. Highly desirable location, property books quickly during peak season.

This is a much sought after 3rd floor, central unit which makes it a highly desirable location in a modern building. There are no units above you and you have a great view from the oceanfront balcony. Both the master bedroom and living room open to the newly renovated oceanfront deck (with new adirondack chairs and table). The condo has a central air conditioning system, new furniture and a 40' flat screen TV with a DVD player. The condo is nicely decorated with fun beach touches throughout and is a fantastic place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

This quiet building has its own private pool (with lounge chairs) surrounded by palm trees. We are 1/2 mile north of the Boardwalk which feature seasonal rides for the kids, numerous shops and restaurants, fireworks on Thursday nights and Sunday movie night at the lake. Just blocks from the condominium is the Marina with daily departures on fishing charters, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, and boat rentals. There are secure rinse-off showers on the ground floor and a laundry room for your use. In the storage area, there are beach fold-up chairs, a cooler, some buckets and shovels, a boogie board and noodles for the kids; so there is no need to haul all that stuff on top of your car.

As a mark of quality 50% of my bookings are from repeat guests or referrals. I take pride in a providing a clean quality condo for your enjoyment. I hope to see you at the beach this year.

If your party is more than 4 to 6 people, we also manage the listing next to this unit, Homeaway #3668500 and 3859638.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at Carolina Beach Ave. It was perfect:) My mom and I loved having the balcony overlooking the beach, the warm weather and the peaceful area. The apartment had everything we needed and the weather was absolutely perfect.

We loved it so much we hope to rent from you again in the future.

Thanks again!

Good but not great

  • 3 of 5

The accomidatkons in out condo were great. I just had a few concerns. First the cable is terrible. I know that most people don't watch tv but with 2 young children we would watch in the morning and sometimes after dinner. It kept glitching/skipping and the guide always said not available or channel will be available shortly. Also the cleaning was terrible. There were bugs some dead and some alive all over the condo. Dust all along the walls and I was not aware we had to put the sheets on the beds ourselves. I did not plan to drive 10 hours to dress my own beds. I did not mind pulling the sheets off at the end of the week. I did enjoy the view from the balcony and the attractions that Carolina beach offered.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We always appreciate honest comments for our viewers to see. I wanted to write back to ensure future travelers that our properties are clean and well maintained. In regards to the cleaning, I spoke to our cleaning employee and she mentioned that the group arrived several hours earlier than the stated arrival time on the arrival documentation. She felt pressure to get the cleaning done asap and probably missed some spots because of people waiting to get in. They had just done pest control and what happens the bugs come out and die. Unfortunately, we have to do pest control living in such a warm climate right on the beach. Pest controls happens about once a month to ensure that "live" bugs aren't roaming around the unit. I wish we would have known about the cable. We have someone there that could have come over to the unit and make sure it was working for you. We always ask our guests to call us immediately if they are not happy with someone or if something is not working properly. We can't fix it if we don't know about it. Again, please come back and we can definitely address all the concerns made in this review. We strive to make our guests fall in love with "A Place At The Beach," and want to do our best to make this happen. Jennifer and Bill

We loved A Place At the Beach! It was definitely our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our condo, A Place At the Beach, and were pleasantly surprised to find that it was more than we expected! It was really our home away from home. This was our first experience with VRBO and proved to be very helpful. Our owner, Bill, couldn't have been nicer and any questions we had he responded back very promptly. Our little home was very clean and cozy. It was completely stocked with anything & everything you could want. Our views were beautiful looking out from our living room & the master bedroom windows. We were down at A Place At the Beach for almost all of the month of February, which of course, is not beach weather but still a nice change from New Jersey weather. Carolina Beach is a real nice town with shops, great places to eat and nice parks to walk or hike around. You can also take many day trips if you are looking for a change such as going to Wilmington, visit forts and the Aquarium. All our trips were wonderful. If you are looking for a relaxing, homey, clean home away from home, A Place At the Beach is the place for you!

Beautiful View!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. The condo was the perfect size for the three of us and convenient to all things Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Wilmington. It was great to be able to run down to the pool or beach within a couple of minutes. The other occupants of the building were also very nice and welcoming. My son made friends with the kids at the pool and the housekeeping staff was super helpful when we arrived someone was parked in our spot. It was fixed in no time! The cookware of the condo needs to be upgraded. The coating of the pans is wearing off and flakes into the food, etc. I have a feeling they've been burned a few times. Otherwise, everything else was in great shape. My son's favorite part was listening to the ocean to fall asleep each night. My favorite part was watching the sunrise from the patio each morning with a cup of coffee. The view is amazing!

Owner's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for your review!!! Thank you for letting us know about the cookware! It goes "old" so quickly when it's used all the time. We will get it updated soon. Cheers! Jennifer and Bill

Awesome place to stay

  • 4 of 5

A Place at the Beach was exactly as stated. Close to the ocean, great view, morning sunrise from the balcony was breathtaking. The décor was so perfect for the beach. This was our granddaughters first trip to the beach and it could not have been a better experience. Close enough to the boardwalk (had to drive) but far enough away to not have the noise. Brit's donuts are a must while at the boardwalk

Heavenly location = Most relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked our vacation on a very snowy and cold day in the Northeast. We counted down the days until our vacation at the end of May. We wanted those days with our toes in the sand to last forever. We were so super pleased with our lovely condo on the beach! Waking up and drinking our coffees on the deck made it that more special. Photo Ops for Pelicans and Shrimp Boats and early morning walks on the beach to fish and collect seashells was perfect!

From the moment we arrived we knew we picked the perfect location! We were so relaxed! We loved using the boogie boards, beach chairs, bikes and kite. The décor made it extra special. We were so comfortable here that we were sad to leave. Our week went super fast but having once lived for ten years in Wilmington and meeting up with so many friends we just enjoyed the Southern Hospitality and the warm greetings we received.

We can't wait to return, we would most definitely book here again. The Gilligan's made our first adventure into renting instead of booking a hotel very satisfying. This condo is clean and well stocked, they leave you without any worries. Great location!

Very impressed!!! Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed from the minute we walked in! We walked in to a gorgeous view of the ocean! Everything was clean and well taken care of. The place was well-stocked, even providing beach chairs and toys which you cannot beat! Checking in and out was a breeze and we hope to be able to stay in this condo again!

There is much to do at Carolina Beach. The North Carolina Aquarium is at the south end of the island, about 8 miles from the condo. The aquarium features divers who swim with sharks and rays and a touching pond for the kids. A twenty-minute drive takes you to Historic Wilmington. The historic riverfront downtown has brick streets, waterfront restaurants, loads of antique shops, horse-drawn carriage rides, and fantastic restaurants. There is also a children's museum, nightly ghost walks and the Cape Fear Serpentarium.

Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Miniature golf.
