About Lindsay Turner

My family and I absolutely love Carolina Beach and made so many memories while staying in our home-away-from-home, Paradise Found 228 at the Cabana Suites. There are so many restaurants in which to choose for an evening event. The amenities for young or older visitors are plentiful. We like to visit this area not only for the restaurants but for the fabulous night life and amenities. My little 6-year-old grand-daughter and 2-year-old grand-son say this is their favorite place to visit. They flew kites, made sand castles, rented golf carts for a day, rode the waves, rode carnival rides, listened to live music, watched fireworks, and many more activities. They can't wait for this summer.

Lindsay Turner purchased this condo in 2004

Why Lindsay Turner chose Coastal North Carolina

Paradise Found 228 is located right in the middle of Carolina Beach at the Cabana Suites and has many breath-taking views from the balcony during the day or night. It's a home-away-from-home with a very cozy, comfortable setting and many delicious restaurants. Various amenities suitable to both families and couples are available. The Deck House restaurant is our favorite of all restaurants, but the Sea Witch located right across the street is a fun place with good food. It even has a Tikki bar! If you're hungry for homecooked seafood and vegetables, try Bowmans. The Fat Pelican is a place to try just about any beer that might suit your fancy.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with Paradise Found 228 on my first visit...the breath-taking beachfront views, historical Boardwalk with many live bands and activities to entertain young and older visitors...the delicious foods...night life...or just romantic evenings captivated my interest and heart!

Lovely view of the beach. Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed and was exactly what I wanted in a little place by the beach. Next time we're in the area we definitely would come back again. Thanks so much!

Great place, great location.

  • 4 of 5

The only negative was the queen bed wasn't very comfortable (my back hurt after two nights and I don't have back problems). A better mattress would be great. Other than that, great place. Very clean. Well equipped. Great location!

Nice overall

  • 3 of 5

The condo was nice overall. There was a problem with the gate codes and I didn't like the narrow outside walkway to get to the condo. I wouldn't have booked this condo if I had been aware of that due to my vertigo. There were lights/lamps/electric outlets that didn't work, and there was an outlet in one of the bedrooms that didn't have a cover. The twin beds weren't separated, which wouldn't have been a problem if there had been twin sheets provided. The condo was overall decently clean but the sheets on the queen bed looked slept in, and had hair on them. The washing machine and dryer worked well, which was a necessity because there were only 4 towels provided for my group of 4. If you're looking for a basic, affordable place to stay this would fit the bill.

My overall impression of my stay is mixed.

  • 1 of 5

I loved the price, the location, the condo itself. My daughter and I had a wonderful getaway for her 26th birthday. The biggest problem I have had is lack of communication and lack of replies to important messages. When we first went to check in, I realized I never received the pass code for the lock box with the keys. I emailed Lindsay using the Home Away app and never received an answer. Luckily the cleaning was crew was still in the condo. They told us when we got there on Monday that they had no idea anyone was checking in that day. I emailed Lindsay to let her know that we got in thanks to the cleaning crew. Once again, no answer. We checked out on Friday morning. The day after we checked out, my daughter noticed little bites on her legs. I immediately emailed Lindsay to ask her to please check the king sized bed for bed bugs. I told her at that time that I did not want to write a review until she investigated the bed. I never received an answer. I waited 10 days before writing this review. I told her that I would love to stay at the condo again once she assured me there were no bed bugs. Now that I have not had that assurance and she has never replied to me to address my concerns, I am writing this review to just say check the beds for bedbugs because now I have to assume that there is an issue since she never contacted me. It would not surprise me since the only check out instructions we had was to strip the SHEETS off the beds and put in a plastic garbage bag...the bedspreads and pillow shams were not mentioned and there were no bed liners on the mattresses. I was fully expecting to give this condo rave reviews and was planning on my next visit until this happened. I didn't want a refund, I didn't want to cause problems, i just wanted her to address the issue just in case in was bedbugs.

Owner's Response: Hi Michele, I'm so sorry, I do not know how this happened. I have contacted homeaway to help me find the emails you sent. I just feel awful that these were missed or blocked in some way. I have 100% response rate from homeaway and live with my phone in hand. I cant apologize enough! I personally as well as the cleaning crew have checked the unit and there are no bed bugs. Lindsay
