About Barbara Bass

We are both from North Carolina and live in Wilmington. We have 4 grown children and love to travel.

Barbara Bass purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Barbara Bass chose Coastal North Carolina

We recently downsized our home in Wilmington and wanted a place to escape for long weekends and to be our 'extra bedrooms' for family visits. Just the quick trip across the bridge seems to come with a change in attitude. It creates a vacation while still essentially at home.

Great place to relax with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time filled with relaxation and fun in the sun! We enjoyed playing beach games, surfing, and the weather was perfect for flying our kite! We were a little bummed Britt's Donuts was closed for the weekend (heard there was a wedding for one of the family members) but the easy access to the beach across the street more than made up for it. As always, a walk up to the Fat Pelican is always a must while on vacation down there!

The house was clean and roomy enough for 3 couples and 2 singles. We had no issues cooking in and entertaining each night for our out of town guests.

I would rent this property again for future visits.

Good location, close to beach access and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Walking distance to local restaurants, the lake, the boardwalk, safe enough for older kids to walk or bike. Beach access very close. Fun to watch beach traffic and stars from decks.

Clean, nicely decorated, plenty of seating. Master was beautiful and large. Twin bedroom too small when trundle pulled out for 13 yr olds, but happy to take queen on first level with own bathroom.

You will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate and the pictures were current pictures representing the current condition. It was very clean and well-maintained. There were beach chairs and beach boards available for use, if needed. Other accessories included baby gates, pack n play and sheets to fit. Little things like shampoo and baby wash in the outside shower for when you return from the beach, shampoo/soap in each bathroom inside as well. Barbara (and neighbor) were very helpful and made check in and check out very easy. There was plenty of space for my husband and I along with our three adult children and one year old grand daughter. If you are looking for somewhere to run away to and just take clothes, food, and beach towels, this is the place!

Carolina Beach is a small community working hard to expand it's welcome as a family vacation spot. The Boardwalk features weekly summer fireworks, regular live entertainment, and an amusement park each summer w/ rides, games, and carnival food.

At the lake you can find the weekly Saturday Farmer's Market, kid friendly outside movies, and paddle-boats. There are sometimes special events, including an annual fundraiser for animal adoption, chowder cook-off, etc..

Walk across the street and throw in a line for surf fishing (license required, pretty cheap) or book an offshore trip from the marina. Stop by one of the tackle shops or the Kure Beach Pier to see what is biting.

You can take your 4-wheel drive on Freeman Park or rent a golf cart and explore the area.

The choice of local restaurants grows each season. The Boardwalk features Britt's Doughnuts (a local favorite!) and several bars, including the Silver Dollar, often w/ live local bands. Food choices range from Seafood, Mexican, Italian, Thai, Southern, Sushi, and sandwiches. A quick drive to Wilmington will give even more options, including some excellent 'foodie' selections. We LOVE to eat and can give some great suggestions! (Local Seafood restaurants good for fried, OK for other, but for the best choices head into town.)

Take the quick drive to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Historic Downtown Wilmington, Jungle Rapids Waterpark, Ride the Riverboat, or see see one of multiple local live theater groups. You might even notice some locations from 'Hollywood East,' home of TV shows Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Revolution, Under the Dome, the pilot for Revenge, Sleepy Hollow, and IRON MAN 3. You might run into a 'Star' at dinner or even in the grocery store.

Have a great stay!!
