Greetings, my name is Jack Kelly, I was born and raised at Carolina Beach. Yes, a hard to find local! A wonderful place to live and to visit, I believe in Carolina Beach so much I have my business, Kelly Medical, Inc. located on the island. You may love it so much you might want to live here too.
As a local owner of Southern Sands, I want to make your stay as wonderful and comfortable as I can. I would love to have your family return here year after year and vacation with us. I hope you will give our beautiful island a try and book your next vacation at Southern Sands. Please Book Early! Dates are filling up fast!
Jack Kelly purchased this condo in 2005
I bought this condo because of its uniqueness. Southern Sands has only nine units in its complex. The units are quiet, safe, and a close walking distance to all local attractions. I believe you and your family will enjoy it also.
The endless views of the Atlantic that change everyday are amazing from the living room and deck. If you get up early to watch a sunrise you will find you won't be able to sleep in on your vacation any longer. Have your morning coffee and watch the dolphins swim. Have a cold drink on your private deck and watch the pelicans fly over the ocean on their way home from a day fishing for their food. A romantic evening with your favorite person watching the evening and night fall, making those wonderful lasting memories.
And then there are the evening sunsets over the Carolina Beach Lake. Beautiful and Magnificent!
The condo is really comfortable and the view is amazing! I loved that you can see the sunrise on the ocean and the sunset on the lake! We also witnessed the lighting of the Christmas Tree and surrounding animated lights around the lake on Friday, just standing on the front deck area near the front door! Didn't have to go into the crowd. The sound and view of the ocean while standing in the kitchen is pretty cool too! We had "turkey by the ocean" and it was awesome! I would stay again! Thank you, Jack!
Jack and Diane are two great people. They always make me and family feel warm and welcome. The condo is always super clean and comfy; it really is a home away from home and the view from the balcony is excellent. There's also plenty of room for a large family with everything neatly organized and easy to find. The location is perfect because it's literally a few steps away from the ocean and the condo is surrounded by several restaraunts and stores. We were very comfortable and really enjoyed our stay. I would most definitely recommend Jack and Diane to family and friends. Can't wait to return for another visit. Thanks again Jack and Diane!
We booked this condo very late in the season and we're a bit apprehensive why such a good location could still be available. We were very happy to find a very nice, clean condo with a great beach view, extremely easy beach access and close enough to walk to the boardwalk and central restaurants. The beach was not too crowded near the condo and was of course great. Can sleep 5 comfortably. Fully functional kitchen well equipped. Jack also made available beach gear including chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas and more. He even made sure there were beach towels since he thought we were coming from so far away. This is a 4th floor corner unit. We will definitely try to stay there again if we come back to Carolina Beach. Thanks Jack.
This condo is awesome! The pictures don't quite capture how comfy and nice this beachy condo is to stay in. My husband and I brought our one year old little girl to Carolina beach for her first beach experience. We had so much fun! The condo itself is decorated in very tasteful beach decor. There is a second bedroom with a bed and all the furnishings that a child would need. Since our daughter is too little to sleep in a big bed, we just set up a pack n play in the bedroom and that worked perfectly. We had plenty of room and the thing I loved most of all was the balcony that faces the beach. My husband and I sat out and ate dinner every night while we watched and listened to the sound of ocean waves hitting the shore. It was also nice when my daughter took her naps because we could still enjoy "the beach" while in the condo. There is a full kitchen with everything you need to make meals if you are like us and prefer to make a grocery trip. There is an elevator in the condo complex, so it was easy for us to take our daughter and all our stuff to and from the beach. The complex is not one of those huge high rises, so don't worry! You literally walk out of the elevator or down the stairs and the walkway to the beach is right across a little street. We felt like the beach was ours the whole trip. Just a short walk down the street is the Carolina Beach boardwalk with cool little beach shops, restaurants, a snow cone place, and a delicious place called Britt's Donuts. Do me a favor and go to this place and get yourself some donuts, they are very scrumptious! We went to Ft. Fisher and checked out the aquarium. I've been to several nice aquariums and I honestly thought this one was very good! My daughter loved all the fish and animals, especially the jellyfish and the big Grouper! Carolina Beach has all sorts of cool beach stores. I liked one called The Checkered Church. We didn't eat out very much, but there are plenty of great places to eat very close to the condo, you don't have to drive into Wilmington to find a good place. Plenty of seafood places for sure! Last but not least, our hosts, Jack and Diane, were so loving and nice, they will treat you like family! Don't pass this place up, you will be glad for many reasons that you stayed here. Thank you again Jack and Diane, y'all are excellent hosts and you know how to make people feel at home!
First off, Jack and Diane are super to work with. Everything was clean and tidy and items in the kitchen were organized and easy to find. The bed and chairs/couch were all comfortable. But to be honest I spent most of my time out on the deck enjoying the view and sounds of the ocean. The bar height deck furniture is perfect for maximizing the open view of the ocean. Access to the ocean is right across the street - you don't even need to put on shoes or sandals!
Location cannot be beat. You can take walks around the lake park less than a block away, or down to the boardwalk area. There are many restaurants within a three block radius and the grocery store is a quick 5 minute drive. DO go to Fishbites. It is over the bridge toward Wilmington, but absolutely worth the drive.
Being on the top floor means never having footsteps overhead. And there is an elevator which is great for arrival and departure. I did hear tv noise from below when that unit was occupied, but it wasn't intrusive.
All in all it was the perfect place for my mini-vacation and I would definitely stay there again in the future.
This was definitely one of the best places I have ever stayed!! The condo was perfect and was definitely true to its description and more. The view of the ocean in the front and a view of the lake in the back was amazing. I really like the owners, Jack and Dianne. They make it a point to make you feel welcome and you have the ease of knowing they are right there for anything you need. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. As we were new to Carolina Beach we loved the fact that most things were within walking distance. We will definitely be going back!
