About the property

1 Bedroom plus sofa bed and bunks - sleeps 4, plus bring Fido!

Oceanfront unit on a wide beach! Watch the sunrise over the water and feel the ocean breeze! Walk directly out on the beach with your own private access. This is a wonderful location for your next summer vacation, Fall or Spring getaway. You can swim in the ocean from April until November! The gorgeous wide beach is staffed from Memorial Day through Labor Day by life guards. We are located just two blocks from the boardwalk, beach shops, restaurants and banks. Our vacation rental is fully-equipped for your comfort, relaxation and enjoyment. Your private oceanfront deck is perfect for dining or watching the ocean. I just finished redecorating with beautiful new flooring, new furniture and new TV's. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom with a new Beautyrest mattress and a queen bed in the sleeper sofa. There is also a set of bunks in the hallway nook. The livingroom has a Smart TV (log in to Netflix or Hulu) and comfy armchairs for relaxing after a long day on the beach. The condominium will sleep four and is perfect for a romantic get-away or a small family. There is a full-size washer and dryer located in the garage. The unit is an elevated second level with two flights of stairs.

If you are looking for two, check out #61355 - the unit right below!

During the summer months, I try to book full week reservations (Saturday to Saturday), so I don't usually accept reservations for shorter stays more than 2-3 weeks out.


***Note that there is some construction going on in the building next door. This does not affect the weekends, but during the week, it's possible that there could be noise on some days. If this would bother you, please contact me about the status.***

Parking: There is ample parking on site.

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 Carolina Beach

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.

Good beach view, condo is not in great shape.

  • 2 of 5

The beach view is terrific and the location is great. Check in was very easy. The condo, however, is not in great shape. There was no lock on the sliding door in the living room, so security was an issue, and the owner did not respond when we sent a note about that. The dishwasher leaked a brown liquid when we tried to run it and the cabinet under the sink in the kitchenette is old and rotting out. There are only about five TV stations available on a tiny little tv oddly placed in a corner, so if you don't have Netflix or Hulu you're out of luck. You have to bring your own paper products and the linens were just folded and left in a laundry bag, so we had to make the bed and put out all the towels when we arrived. The walls are paper thin, so we heard every step the upstairs tenants took and every dog bark in the unit next door. The bed is a queen, but comfortable. The two single bunk beds in the hallway were only a thin mattress on wood.

Owner's Response: I return absolutely every email I get, so apparently your's was not received. The sliding door with no lock is on a deck 35' in the air, so security is really not an issue. The Cabinets are certainly not rotting out, and the condo was recently renovated - see pictures. There are two Televisions in the condo, the smaller one is in the livingroom and is in a corner so it's visible from the couch. The TV is a ROKU TV, so there are plenty of channels available. The larger TV is in the bedroom, and you can see it in the photos. The review is correct in that, our instructions clearly state that paper and soap products are not provided. The Linens are provided from the linen service and are left in the bag so guests no they are clean. This is a condo, not a hotel, and these instructions are emailed to all guests when they reserve. The walls are standard sheetrock, insulated between units - not paper thin at all. This is a condo, not a single family house. So, if you are not used to living in a attached frame structure, you will hear sounds from other condos. I'm glad this guest enjoyed the location, the beach, and the views. That is why people rent this condo.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time and enjoyed the view. You are correct, the deck is outside and can not be used when it's raining - except that you can see the ocean and beach from the livingroom, comfortably inside no matter the weather!

Very comfortable. My wife and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Fresh paint, new furniture and new flooring was really nice. So convenient to shopping and some of our favorite restaurants in Carolina Beach. And right on the beach. Nothing between the condo and the beach except a sand dune.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Getting into the condo was a breeze, Scott sent excellent detailed instructions in advance. First impression of the space was that it was cute and clean. As my arrival was well after dark, I didn't get to do much exploring of the area until the following morning but boy was it worth the wait! The porch provides an amazing, relaxing, ocean front view. The beach was literally steps away and was surprisingly not overcrowded, making it easy to find a good spot for the day. Bonus: chairs are located below the condo for your convenience if needed. Pretty much everything was in walking distance including an awesome dog-friendly coffee shop called magik beans that I could bring my pup with me to every morning. The grocery store was about a 5 minute drive down the road and I was pleasantly surprised by how well-equipped the condo was for cooking, had everything I needed to make meals and then some. I had a few days of rain during my stay but there were plenty of options for indoor entertainment in the surrounding area, such as the wwII battleship in Wilmington and the aquarium. Being right on the beach though, you can run right out there once the rain stops which was awesome. My only hiccup during the stay was that there was a construction crew in the building right next door so there was some noise from that as well as men visible through the sliding glass door at times; however, it hardly impeded by ability to relax and enjoy my vacation. Would absolutely book this place again - I was so bummed to have to leave!
