Overview

Coastal North Carolina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

I require a phone conversation before booking my property. I am available for phone calls to answer any questions that you might have up until 9PM.

“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. Adjacent to the kitchen area is a front-loading washer/dryer for your laundry needs.

I am in the process of evaluating Online Booking and Payments. At this time, I offer prompt responses, quick payments through Paypal or via check, unsurpassed honesty and extremely fair treatment of my guests. My response rate is one hour or less unless your inquiry appears in my inbox during the night. Thank you for your interest in my property.

The master bedroom opens onto the ocean side porch. It has a full private bath, a queen size bed, walk-in closet and cable television with DVD. The second bedroom also has an adjoining full bath and opens onto the small porch which overlooks the pool. It has a double bed and twin bunk beds, which are nice if you have children in your party. It has a television with VCR.

The saline filtered pool is gated and private, open only to guests of our 24 unit condominium group. It is well maintained and generously furnished with tables, chairs and lounge chairs for your comfort and convenience.

Onsite parking for two vehicles per unit and an individual storage room are located on the ground level. Ocean access is just a short walk from the condo.

This condo undergoes a Deep Clean before each summer. This involves removing and laundering all bedding, taking beds apart, and thoroughly cleaning the entire condo. At this time, we also restock all supplies and replace anything worn out or needing replacement. Trane Heating and Air heat pump is about 6 years old and maintained under a service contract. Cleaning is provided by same small cleaning company each week. They have been taking care of this condo for six years now and are rated one of the best on the island. They also inspect the condo after each rental.

Make this wonderful condo your next vacation home as you create new family and personal memories for a lifetime. For additional photos and information, see my personal webpage for my condo. http://carolinabeachcondorental.com/

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.

Great Place to Wind Down and Relax

  • 5 of 5

Ken,

I wanted to write and say thank you for getting us in on 2days notice! This week was just what I needed after finding out my mom has breast cancer. The beach has always been a stress reliever for me. Being able to sit on your porch swing and hear the waves and feel the ocean breeze was absolutely divine. The food was awesome in town, having lived here 16 yrs ago, we were able to try different places. Michaels Seafood and Britts doughnuts were my favorites. Bow mans seafood is great for a night in since they deliver. We also tried Jack Mackerals which was good. For pizza Frank's on the boardwalk is to die for!! We watch fireworks on Friday night since it was last weekend of the season, and of course visited Britts a second time while we were there. Thank you again so much! All the personal touches, along with the communication with you made this week rememberable. I would highly recommend your condo to anyone needing a wonderful place to stay.

On another note, I have decided to move back to CB. I accepted a job offer in Wilmington. In the weeks since we stayed there I have viewed at least 8 condos, tow homes, and houses for a winter rental. I will say this your condo by far exceeds in cleanliness and luxery by anything I have looked at since. You can tell you take pride in your property by how immaculate it is. Thank you again! Hope to meet you in person one of these days.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my property and reflect on your week vacation in my condo at Carolina Beach. It was a pleasure to assist you in finding accommodations that would provide you with much needed rest. The cleaning staff and I take great pride in providing an extremely clean and updated home away from home for our guests. Over many years of property management, I have determined that clear communication and attention to maintenance issues create happier and better satisfied guests. It seems that the large ocean side porch with swing, rockers, and table/chairs is the most popular spot in the condo for most of my guests as well as myself. Thank you also for reviewing some of the excellent dining spots on the island. Carolina Beach has really done an excellent job in renovating the boardwalk and attracting more entertainment and restaurants. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you or your family in the future.

Summer Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week long vacation at Carolina Beach and we are already going thru withdrawals! First let me tell you about the owner Ken. He is the only person who actually CALLED me after my initial inquiry. He took the time to talk to me about the condo, the area and the contract. The nicest guy in the world! He contacted me right before our trip, the day of our arrival and the day before our departure. You rarely get that kind of attention! Now the condo - my kids screamed as they walked in the front door. You walk right into the massive front porch. My kids hung out there every day, enjoying the big swing and rocking chairs. The condo itself is very clean. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils. I cooked everyday which saved alot of money. Location is awesome! Just a quick stroll across the street and you are at the beach which is clean and not overly crowded. After a long day at the beach, we enjoyed a dip in the saline pool! Thank you Ken for sharing this beautiful place with us! We made some great memories that includes: morning walks on the beach collecting sea shells, watching and waiting for the baby sea turtles to hatch, firework show on the beach, walking the boardwalk, munching on fresh donuts at Wake & Bake, visiting Tregembo Animal Park, splashing down at Jungle Rapids Water Park, thrift shopping in Wilmington, taking the ferry to Holden Beach and staying up way too late!

Family Fun At Its Best!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best vacation ever. The condominium was in pristine condition. As soon as you open the door, you enter into the most spacious balcony anyone could ask for. Rocking Chairs, Swing, Beach Chairs, and Full Size Table make for a great evening of playing games, drinking an adult beverage while listening to the ocean, as well as staging your beach gear. To the left of the balcony, you enter into the Living Room through Sliding Glass Doors. The furniture is in great condition and comfortable; moreover, there is a large flat screen TV for viewing pleasure throughout the day. The Dining Room is very spacious with a table that seats 6 comfortably. Both bedrooms have full walk-in closets that provide more than enough room for luggage and clothes. Although the kitchen area is small, it has all of the amenities to include a new stand-up Washer and Dryer, huge Refrigerator, Microwave, Toaster Oven, Blender, Crockpot, Spacious Cabinets full of plates, glasses, and other kitchenware. Behind the condominium, there is a large in-ground pool that is perfect for cooling-off after a long day at the beach or sight seeing. Finally, the owner was extremely helpful and accessible throughout the week. As a matter of fact, he even recommended a fine restaurant for my wife and I to enjoy a fine dining experience. I would absolutely recommend this place to any family, who wants to stay at a beautiful home-like place with accessibility to all of the things that anyone could want during a beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your impressions and review of my condo during your recent vacation. I appreciate it, and I know my future guests will find your information valuable. I too love the large Oceanside porch and wanted to make it feel comfortable for many activities such as eating, rocking, playing board games, swinging, and enjoying favorite beverages while listening to the ocean. The cleaners do a thorough maintenance and cleaning each Spring to make sure we start the season with the condo in great condition to start the busy summer season. In addition they make sure everything is in place each week and clean between guests. I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time in my condo and look forward to your future stays with us.
