Great location; would come back!

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a perfect place and we'd definitely recommend it to others. Having the option of the pool and the beach were awesome. Kitchen was 99% stocked. The furniture was a bit outdated and could use some TLC and the whole place could use a solid cleaning from top to bottom. Stairs were okay for us as we are young and in shape but could be a handful for elderly guests. We had 7 adults in our group and it accommodated us perfectly. Any more may have been tight. Owners were helpful and responsive when we needed it!

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.

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 Carolina Beach

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'.
