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.


Parking: There is ample parking on site.

Pets up to 50 pounds.Pet fee required.: Email for more information.

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.

Enjoy coffee while watching the sunrise, or a quiet evening on the deck with a glass of wine. Lounge on the beach or ride a bike to nearby attractions. Visit the NC Aquarium at nearby Fort Fisher, or spend a day touring Historic Downtown Wilmington. During the off-season enjoy stunning ocean views from the living room and curl up with a good book. Whether you like lots of activity or lazing around, you'll find this a perfect vacation spot.

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.

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.

Owner was SUPER nice and very helpful. It is a older beach condo that needs updating but the views and town are great and it is very dog friendly

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!

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.
