“Rock Your Troubles Away” in this wonderful first floor, ocean view condominium located in the highly desirable north end of Carolina Beach. This condo is well-maintained and nicely appointed, with lots of glass doors to enhance your views and the feeling of spaciousness. It also has generous space on the porch and deck, a private pool, and free Wi-Fi for your enjoyment. For your convenience, you have on-site parking, ground level storage and easy ocean access. There are many wonderful activities in the area. Every effort has been made to provide you with a clean and comfortable home for your next vacation.

This home has a very large porch on the ocean side with rocking chairs, a swing and a table with chairs. This is a perfect spot to watch the beautiful sunrises, enjoy your morning coffee or other favorite beverages any time of day. The table and chairs provide additional mealtime options, whether a casual lunch in wet swimsuits or a candlelight dinner. This porch is a great place to relax in the swing and sink into the rockers. Just sit back and let your cares slip away with the sound of the surf and ocean breeze in your hair. There is also a smaller porch which overlooks the pool. It has two Adirondack chairs to enjoy while watching the swimmers in the pool or the sun setting over the canal.

The interior is tastefully decorated, with two sofas in the living area (one is a sleeper sofa) where you can watch cable TV, surf the internet, take a nap or just sit back and enjoy your stay. The dining area has a table and chairs that will seat six comfortably when you wish to dine inside.

The kitchen has a great view, over-looking the pool and the canal. It is well stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. It has a new stove, microwave, stainless dishwasher, stainless refrigerator with ice maker, and small appliances to include a toaster, blender, coffee maker and coffee bean grinder.

About The Owner

I am a native North Carolinian who grew up visiting the charming and historic Carolina Beach. The Boardwalk was fascinating to my brother and cousin. My family always had rental properties so I grew up in a service oriented family. I use many of those same skills in offering my condo to guests. Honesty and integrity combined with good communication are essential. I am now retired law enforcement and find it very enjoyable to spend time in Carolina Beach.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Coastal North Carolina

ACarolina Beach is clean, has an enchanting quality to it, and is a family oriented beach. As friends say, it is Paradise.

What makes this condo unique

We simply love the oceanside porch, the views from both decks, the breezes that flow through the condo when sliding doors on the oceanside and canal side are open, and the closeness to the beach. The saline filtered pool has become one of our favorite spots since the saline doesn't burn your eyes or leave your skin dry.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying at your condo and visiting the beach. What a GREAT location! Close to everything. Staying at Carolina Beach for several years, we always try to stay somewhere different. Your place was so perfect for us, and we feel we would definitely want to return to THIS condo.

Thank you very much for making it all easy and hassle free.

BEST Winter Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We happily spent the winter on the BEACH! Enjoyed Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years Eve 2016 and Valentine's Day 2017! (Rented 10/26/2016-2/15/2017) COMFORTABLE! CLEAN! AMENITIES PERFECT! Immediately relaxed as soon as walked in the door. (not wheelchair accessible due to outdoor one flight of stairs) Very Safe and secure location. Walked the beach EVERYDAY! This condo is home, lacking nothing~! Ken is a fantastic landlord, he loves his vacation home and it shows in every aspect. We WILL be back! Gayle & Bob MacWhinnie, Northern Pennsylvania

Very Clean and Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week last year and, again, this year in this lovely and exceptionally clean condo. Ken, the owner, is very personable and easy to work with. The 49” new flat screen TV was great for the children to watch their cartoons and for us adults to watch our shows. The balcony is very spacious with a table and 4 chairs, a swing (that I love) and 4 rocking chairs. This condo is equipped with everything you would need to enjoy your week including a Keurig coffee maker. The boardwalk is close with many attractions. The beach is just across the street. There is a nice pool to enjoy if you need a break from the ocean. It was very relaxing and super comfy and we will be sure to return again.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for choosing my condo for your summer vacation retreat. I also appreciate your taking the time to provide a review of my condo. My goal has always been to provide an exceptionally clean and well equipped place for vacationing and traveling guests. Every Spring, the cleaners perform a deep clean on the condo. In addition, I target certain updates and improvements to the condo and also address any maintenance issues and preventative maintenance on the heat pump. My greatest pleasure though is working with prospective and current guests. I look forward to having you and your family as guests again in the future.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at Ken's place to celebrate my husband and daughter's birthdays! To say that it was awesome is an understatement. One thing that I don't mind paying for is cleanliness and superior service. We got just that! After requesting a booking, Ken replied promptly. His communication throughout the process was excellent and he provided recommendations for local businesses. The condo was spotless and stocked very well with everything that we needed. We were a stone's throw to the beach. It was nice to leave our truck parked. We found a spot to crab and it was awesome. We thank you Ken for being such a gracious host. We are already planning our return for next year!

It was a pleasure to work with you on the rental procedure and to hear about your adventures crabbing. My cleaners and I do take great pride in keeping the condo well maintained, cleaned, and up to date in amenities. I look forward to having you and your family return for another stay in my condo.

Wonderful condo! Clean and updated!

  • 5 of 5

Ken's condo was a great find for our week at Carolina Beach! Everything was perfectly clean, and the condo is really nicely updated. The washer and dryer work perfectly, and all appliances are in great shape. We loved the large front porch (where you can see the ocean across the street) and the little deck overlooking the pool (which is great!). Ken was always in touch and made us feel at home. We were so lucky to find this place and hope to return in the future!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests in my condo. The cleaners and I work hard to keep everything updated and clean for each guest. This begins with a list of updates each year and a deep Spring clean to begin the heavy busy rental season. Between guests the cleaners work hard between guests to keep the condo looking clean. We are truly happy that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to your future stays in the condo.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo for our quick trip to Carolina Beach. The owner is very conscientious, has taken excellent care of the property, and is available and responds quickly to any inquiries. He also gave us a great steer on local restaurants. We were very pleased with the location and the easy walk to the beach. The layout of the condo was perfect for our short getaway with our adult son, and the large, relaxing porch was a real plus! We had a terrific time and look forward to coming back!!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Carolina Beach condo. The condo is extremely clean and well decorated. We had our grandchildren with us so we put some of the decorations up high away from little fingers. The children loved the pool and spent a lot of time in it. All of us, also, enjoyed the huge deck with the swing and rockers. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the big screen TV. The beach was very close and has easy access. My son-in-law took a charter boat out and caught a lot of fish. Needless to say, we had fish for dinner and it was delicious. He froze some of them and took them home. The owner, Ken, was extremely helpful in making our stay comfortable. We had the linen service recommended by him and it was very good. We would also give them an A+. All in all, it was a great vacation and we highly recommend this condo and look forward to our next trip.

I look forward to your future stays with us.
