About Scott Shackleton

I'm a travel addict and I know how important clean and convenient accomodations are to enjoying a vacation. I'm also love my pet, so I understand wanting to bring pets on vacation. As long as Fido is well behaved and doesn't bark excessively, he or she is welcome.

Scott Shackleton purchased this condo in 2014

Why Scott Shackleton chose Coastal North Carolina

This condo is one of 5 I own at Carolina Beach. Pleasure Island is small enough to provide a relaxed beach atmosphere without over-commercialization. At the same time there is a high enough population in the summer to attract top rate restaurants and entertainment. It is close to Wilmington NC and all that is offered there. I love spending time in Carolina Beach when my condo's are not rented. I like to hang out on the beach with friends, walk for miles, visit the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, ride my bike and relax with good books. Anytime of year is a great time to visit Carolina Beach. Spring and Fall are actually my favorite times.

The view was excellent. Enjoyed Carolina Beach, and the location was great! However, there wasn't a comfortable place to sit inside the property. Cute dining chairs, but straight backed metal. New looking couch, but very stiff with no where to put your feet up or place a drink. The mattress is years beyond needing to be replaced. The walls were very dirty around the light receptacle in the bathroom, and there was dust caked on the fixture as well as a mildewed shower curtain. We actually left early, which we've never done before. I know it is an older property, but simple things could be done to make it much more comfortable. I would suggest cleaning and/or painting the walls and replacing the mattress as soon as possible.

Owner's Response: Interesting...I am sorry you found my home to be uncomfortable. Our crew works hard to make sure everything is clean. Ocassionally things get missed, and that is why both the instructions and a large poster the fridge say to call me immediately upon check in If anything is not clean. We will come make it right immediately. The walls were all painted this spring. The couch is brand new, and has an end table next to it. We do not have a table to put your feet on because the living room is very small, but certainly feel free to move a dining chair,over and rest your feet on that. The mattress is 5 years old, and the topper was replaced this year (2 months ago) And is memory foam. I have slept in that bed myself and found it comfortable, as have many of my guests this summer.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Right on the beach and pet friendly. It was wonderful to walk them by the ocean early in the morning and late at night. (Pets not allowed on the beach between 9-5). Great location, near the boardwalk and coffee shop. The adults and the teens all loved it. Thanks for sharing your space with us.

Perfect location

This condo is in a great location. Close to everything. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our visit to Carolina Beach. We would stay here again.

Perfect for a short weekend stay with the family!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, right on the beach, and an easy walk to the Boardwalk. Our children thought the bunk beds were cool too!

Our Go-To Vacation Spot - Love the Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this condo on the beach. We have stayed in 1A twice, and this was on first time in 2A. They are both amazing condos: clean, comfy, with amazing views. In this unit, you are on the 2nd floor, so you get a wider view of the beach, and can observe people on the beach. You are just a quick walk to Frank's Pizza, Britt's Donut Shop, and more on the Boardwalk. We were able to relax on the deck, and listen to the sounds of the ocean with our morning coffee, as well as in the evening. We cooked almost every meal from the kitchen, except our walk to Hang Ten and the Sea Witch. There's a dishwasher for easy clean-up.

We had a question, and the owner contacted us right away. We stayed with our two children and small dog. The bunks were perfect for them, but my son also fell asleep to the television on the sleeper sofa quite often too.

We usually come in July, but we came in April this time. The ocean breeze is wonderful in April - not too hot. We were also able to bring our dog to the beach in April, just not between 9-5. The people in the area are super-friendly and helpful.

Additionally, the garage contains beach items for all of your beach needs. There is also a washer and dryer. We like that, so that we can pack less, and drive home to Michigan with clean laundry.

We really enjoyed our stay, and we are looking forward to returning again in the summer. This is our go-to vacation spot.
