This oceanfront two bedroom, two bath condo in Carolina Beach will provide a wonderful retreat for you and your family. Let time slow down, and enjoy the sight,sound and feel of the pristine Atlantic Ocean. The ocean is calling you to sit on the front deck, and relax. Turn off the phone and the computer, and marvel in nature again.
Can't relax without doing SOMETHING? OK, then take advantage of all the amenities our Island offers. Like to kayak or canoe, or surf or scuba dive or snorkel? All are available for your leisure. Is fishing more to your liking? We have head boats at the marina that depart daily for full day or half day charters in the Gulf Stream. Ready for the Captain to stap you in the chair to see if you can land a big one? This is the place! Also, surf fishing is available, and if you can cast far enough, you may be able to do so from the deck. Let me know if you can. Have a four wheel drive vehicle? You may drive on the beach of Pleasure Island at the North End or the South End, but please don't try this without four wheel drive. We also have piers on the Island for the angler that like the fish to really swim to him or her.
Like fish to eat, but don't want all the hassle to catch your own? No worry- we have plenty of seafood restaurants on the Island that will prepare your meal anywany you like, and if you happen to catch a big one- several will prepare your catch for you. We aim to please on Pleasure Island.
Have little mates with you- terrific- this is a kid friendly area, and you won't hear the dreaded, ' I;m bored' statement that we all dread to hear. No way- the Island offers the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher. Let the little ones hold the hermit crabs or sea anemones, but look out for the squid- he will squirt ink on you! Watch the divers in the shark tank- would you be brave enough to swim with them? Other attractions for the little 'pirates' include amusement rides on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, age sensitive, fireworks, kid friendly movies, usually Disney, at the Carolina Beach Lake under the stars every Sunday evening in the summer. Lessons for most water sports are also available by age.Boat rentals and jet ski rentals are available for adults. Not coming with the little ones? Plenty for you to do too.
The boardwalk offers many clubs for adults to enjoy dancing and adult beverages. Several restaurants also have bands on a regular basis. Just check the local paper, The Island Gazette, for a complete list of activities on the Island during your vacation with us.
Need to slow down yet? Take a stroll on the historic riverwalk in downtown Wilmington. The city dates to the 1700's, and we have a lot to explore. Antiques, local crafts and amazing local art are all on display downtown. Take in a movie or concert at Thalian Hall- one of the oldest in the country. Take a haunted pub crawl through downtown- we do have spirits you know! Ask your guide to show you where they may be, or just walk around Wilmington at night, and look up into the old windows of our buildings. See anything?
Be sure and let me know. Enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride through the city, and lose yourself in another time and place as the guide explains life in this vibrant city. Like the water? Take a cruise on the Cape Fear River on the Henrietta. They offer day and evening cruises, some with dinner and others with a murder mystery on board.
Still need something else to do? Like golf or tennis? We have great amenities on the Island and also on the mainland.
Horseback riding is also provided by several local stables in Wilmington. These are by appointment only.
Exhausted yet? Don't forget, you may walk over to the beach with a good book and a comfortable chair. Remember, leave the phone and the computer off, and relax.
Hope you will join us, and make fun summer memories with your family and friends and enjoy ' The Summer Winds.'
Call property manager for more details and to reserve.
We love the Island and hope you will enjoy our home away from home as much as we do. Enjoy your stay!

Very nice condo! Clean , nicely decorated and right on the beach! Double sliding glass doors with a beautiful view that lead to a balcony that overlooks the ocean for morning coffee or evening cocktails :) We are thoroughly enjoying our stay and will hope to return for the convenience and tranquility of being steps away from the ocean.
We couldn't have been happier with Summer Winds. My wife and 4 girls stayed here for a week. The rental is in great condition. New kitchen with everything you'd need. The write-up didn't include the rental is equipped with a washer and dryer!
It's literally steps from the beach. And the beach is perfect. Not crowded, great sand, great water. 5 min walk to the pier. 5 min drive to the boardwalk area. We surfed, fished, played in the water, ice cream and Britt's Doughnuts, enjoyed town, and most importantly just hung out (either in the rental, on the balcony, or on the beach).
The owners were great to work with. I couldn't recommend this more highly!
Amusement Park on the boardwalk. Rides live music and weekly fireworks show!
Every Sunday movie on the lake.
Farmers market on Saturdays
