About Stephanie Gardner

Chris and Stephanie Gardner live in Rocky Mount, NC. They love the coast and enjoy the the special time they share at A Seaside Memory with their 3 children and friends. Business and busy schedules keep them from enjoying the property as often as they would like too motivating them to open it up for limited rental. They are looking for family-oriented renters who will be respectful of their second home.

Stephanie Gardner purchased this house in 2009

Why Stephanie Gardner chose Coastal North Carolina

Carolina Beach is a great beach with close proximity to Wilmington for upscale shopping, dining, and historic tours. Locally, Carolina Beach offers Freeman Park where you can drive your SUV onto the beach. Masonboro Island is close by for shell seekers. Fort Fisher is only 10 minutes away - where you can go to the NC Aquarium and the historic battlegrounds. The North Pier is walking distance and a bike lane is available on street side. The Boardwalk and Britt's donuts are located approximately 1 mile from this home. Carolina Beach has unique shops, great restaurants, and local scuba diving, jet ski rentals and fishing tours.

What makes this house unique

Water views are available from almost every window since the front of the home is oceanfront and the back has waterway views which are great for boat watching. 'A Seaside Memory' is located close to the inlet making dolphin pods swimming close to shore a frequent occurrence. Close proximity to the North Pier and Freeman Park make it an ideal location for those who like to fish, crab, or rake for clams. A private walkway to the beach with an outside hot/cold shower make going back and forth to the beach a 'breeze'.

Beautiful Property, Incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Seaside Memory was a perfect spot for our family to enjoy our beach vacation. We were privileged to spend time with our family including our first grandchild, less than a month old! The elevator was a great convenience as we brought in groceries, however the layout of the home is such, we really didn't consider it during the week. We cooked in most often as we have a family member with life threatening allergies and found all of the right tools to create and serve a variety of meals, including a BD celebration. We watched the dolphins play behind the fishing vessels in the morning having juice and coffee on the deck. Evenings we found ourself at the dining table, thankfully watching gorgeous sunsets over the harbor and beyond, a wonderful time of sharing and catching up. We sandwiched beach, ocean and "love the pool" time in between! Our family was blessed to have a beautiful canvas to create our own memories (and photographs) for "Beach Vacation 2016" and are looking forward to our time to return in 2017!

Beautiful property, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Seaside Memory was perfect for my family gathering!! My oldest brother is in a wheelchair and the elevator and open floor plan worked perfect for him. We were able to have a water beach chair for my brother so he could experience the sandy beach & ocean. We got it from Carolina Beach Recreation department and they were very accommodating!

Seaside memory was very clean and well appointed. The kitchen was well stocked and a dream to work in. The bedroom configurations worked well for our needs. We fell in love with the beach and had perfect weather. The pool was a bonus. Loved the upstairs deck and spent every morning enjoying my coffee on it and every evening enjoying my wine!! We plan to be back. Chris & Stephanie were easy to work with.

2nd year and running....amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my family and I have had the pleasure of staying at "A Seaside Memory". We participate in a charity volleyball tournament for Alzheimer's each year in memory of our grandmother and have stayed here each year so far - and the name just fits so perfectly. It is the perfect place for a family vacation. They really do have everything you need at the house - and, if you wish you can go to a local restaurant that is not far away. The views are spectacular, the place is very nice, clean and convenient. The owners are responsive and so super nice. I can't wait to stay again next year.

Perfect for Large Families!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of renting "A Seaside Memory" for our family reunion in July 2015. There were 13 of us staying in the house (two under the age of 5) and it was absolutely the perfect house for us. Beautiful rooms, 3 spacious decks overlooking the ocean, well stocked kitchen, and great pool/patio area. We had one person with a broken foot, and two older aunts with knee problems so the elevator was a life saver! The house was large enough to accommodate our additional 12 family members who came over in the evenings for dinner (They chose to rent condos closer to the boardwalk). Probably the best part is the beach access. This house is located a bit north of the downtown area and it felt like we had the beach to ourselves every day. Absolutely beautiful and so much fun! We fell in love with Carolina Beach and even though its an 11hr drive from Nashville, we agreed that we want to come back in the next 3-4 years. We definitely plan to rent "A Seaside Memory" again!

Perfect place to be

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit insgesamt zwei Familien im Haus. Die Kinder sind im Alter von 2-11 Jahren. Das Haus war sehr sauber und ist zu empfehlen. Einzig die Check-out Regeln sind mühsam. Ich habe noch nie so viel geputzt beim Ausziehen aus einem Ferienhaus.

A Seaside Memory

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely perfect as our wedding site - the house was beautiful inside and out. Amazing view from the master bedroom and living room/kitchen area; so peaceful at this time of year. For you seashell collectors - an abundance!!!! Working with the owner(s) was an easy process from start to finish. Our hope is to stay here for all our future vacations to Carolina Beach.
