Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks to Kathy, a recent guest, for this lovely feedback, which she agreed to allow us to post. "I just wanted to thank you for letting us share your beautiful home at Carolina Beach. Your home is so comfortable and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our vacation. Sitting on the deck looking at the ocean was amazing and we loved that people walking by would say hello and chat. We loved that it was in walking distance to everything including the beach, shops, Britt’s Donuts of course, the fair and restaurants. The bedrooms had a lot of room which made it comfortable for all of us.

We hope to be able to do it again next Summer and I will definitely refer your beautiful home to my friends and family!

Thanks again,

Jul 2014

They will provide sheets for each bedroom with bath towels/hand towels/wash cloths. The guests can also elect to bring their own sheets and towels. Please note that the condo is on the second floor, which means there are two sets of three short flights of stairs. These do not present a problem for most people but can be a problem for people who have trouble with steps.

Perfect vacation beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Shared this beach condo with another family--4 adults and 3 children fit comfortably. The condo is well maintained and beautifully decorated. It's also a great location----one block from the beach and two blocks from the boardwalk. We also enjoyed a view of the beach and Thursday night fireworks from the porch. Carolina beach is a wonderful beach town and convenient to Ft. Fisher, the Aquarium, and Wilmington. Rick was very helpful in answering all of our questions before the trip. I highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review! Thank you so much. We are glad that you liked the condition and decoration of our condo. That means a lot to us. Since this is our vacation home as well as a place for our guests to visit, it is important to us to keep it fresh and inviting. And we agree with you about the location; we feel there really is no better location in CB than where we are, halfway between the Marriott and the Lake and less than 100 steps from the beach. We are also glad that you liked Carolina Beach as much as we do. Fireworks, good food, great boardwalk, Britts Donuts (a CB tradition), and plenty of things to see and do on the island and nearby, it truly is a great place to vacation. We hope that you will make staying with us a yearly (or more frequent) tradition.

Beautiful, relaxing condo. Beautiful deck with ocean view; perfect for 4 adults and a 2 yr old!

  • 5 of 5

Rick and Pat were so great! Hurricane Irma made our trip a little stressful with unknown weather but Rick gave us options and time to decide what we'd do with the changing weather. In the end, my husband and I met our army son and his family and we stayed at the condo for almost 2 days of our 3 day visit. We are enjoyed every minute together and in the condo with them. I would definitely return and am beyond grateful for such kind and caring renters. We left only because of the threat of torrential rain not because we didn't enjoy it. If not for the weather, we would have stayed that other day. Very relaxing condo, great people to rent from. Thank you so much Rick and Pat!

Owner's Response: It is guests like you who make sharing our condo so much fun. You were a delight to work with and I'm so glad your stay worked out so well and you were able to spend time with your son and his family. We would love to have you return and hopefully enjoy the better weather that we more typically experience. Thanks so much for your 5 star review. You, in turn, were absolutely 5 star guests.

a great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property had a real clean and contemporary feel to it, showing the owners continue to improve the décor. I appreciated all of the available kitchen items (pitcher, blender, pizza pan) which were things we wanted to have but did not have room to pack. Little extras, like games, and a memory album, as well as a book with nearby restaurants and sightseeing was an added plus.

I liked the fact that the building was locked at night. The grill was easy to clean and operate. There was plenty of room for the 7 of us who stayed there, and I appreciated the availability of WiFi.

Great condo with fast beach access

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay at hotels while on vacation but decided to rent a condo this year. It was a great choice! We enjoyed the condo and its proximity to the beach as well as the boardwalk. The condo was tidy and we loved having the washer and dryer. Thank you Pat and Rick!

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

Overall you can't beat this location. It's just a short walk to the beach, park, boardwalk and restaurants. The condo is perfect for taking a break from the sun. We highly recommend this place for anyone headed to Carolina Beach

Second Time is Still A CHARM!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time visiting Carolina Beach at this condo with my family! The owners are absolutely wonderful and will respond to your every question and need with care and in a timely manner! This vacation went off without a hitch. Having been down there once before allowed us to better plan for all the amazing things Carolina Beach has to offer. Heads Up ... every Thursday night they do fireworks on the beach! I would suggest taking the famiy to the board walk that night, and enjoying the carnival, and maybe snagging a roof top seat at one of the local taverns to get the ultimate view that evening! You can not beat the quality and price of this condo! And after another year, I can honestly say that the owners take great pride in their condo and have maintained its relaxing beach ambiance! Thank you guys so much, until next time!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being a return visitor. I can think of no higher compliment than having a guest who has stayed in our condo decide they want to come back again. We are also glad you had a great time in CB. It really is a fun place to go for vacation, isn't it? Lots of things for all members of the family to do, laid-back feel, a variety of dining options, the excellent boardwalk, and beautiful beaches that are bustling with life but not overrun by people. We look forward to hosting you again next year.
