About Jack Kelly

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 started my business, Kelly Medical, Inc. 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

Why Jack Kelly chose Carolina Beach

I bought this condo because of its uniqueness. Southern Sands has only nine units in its complex. It has beautiful ocean and lake views across the street.The units are quiet, safe, and a close walking distance to all local attractions. I believe you and your family will enjoy it also. We have parking underneath the building, outside shower, and just across the street from the ocean.

What makes this condo unique

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!

Best place we have stayed at Carolina Beach

  • 5 of 5

Jack and Diane made us feel very welcome and since they are from Carolina Beach, were able to give us good advice for places to go and do. The property was in a great location and had good views of the ocean and the lake. I have stayed in other condos that had a cheap rental feel to them, but not this one. It was more like a home than a rental. I highly recommend this property.

Clean, warm and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Jack and Diane went above and beyond to make sure we felt welcome and at home. Their condo is beautiful and well equipped with everything you need. It was so nice to be able to walk to the boardwalk and the lake is across the street for easy access to the running/walking trail. Beautiful morning sunrises too! We are looking forward to our next stay at Southern Sands!

Thanksgiving at the beach 2016

  • 4 of 5

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!

Fabulous Condo with excellent ocean view

  • 5 of 5

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!

Welcome to Southern Sands,

The beautiful Atlantic Ocean with its white sand beach only steps away for you and your family to enjoy. With a beach access just across the street.

Your condo is only a 3 minute walking distance from our family friendly famous boardwalk area. Where you can find your special souvenirs, eateries, ice cream, home made fudge and don't forget a stop at Britt's doughnuts. Every night on the boardwalk there are activities for the entire family. Thursday nights are fireworks over the Atlantic Ocean. Listen to a live band and let the kids ride their favorite carnival ride at the gazebo area. Your condo is steps away from The Carolina Beach Lake, where you can rent paddle boats and kayaks or walk/jog around the lake.There are children swings and sliding boards also to enjoy.

On Sunday nights under the stars there are free family movies. Just bring your chairs or blankets.

The Southport/Fort Fisher Ferry is a ten minute drive south of Carolina Beach where you can visit historic Southport. Don't forget to visit The Fort Fisher Aquarium, for a wonderful eye to eye visit with the fishes. Historic Downtown Wilmington and The Battleship North Carolina are only a 25 minute drive from your condo. Fort Fisher is just past Kure Beach with great walking paths and a museum. Catch a play at Historic Thalian Hall in Wilmington, you won't be disappointed!

I guess I could say you are in the middle of it all.

Relax and enjoy your stay! Book Soon , Dates are Filling Fast!!

Thank you,
