Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Luxury Home With Ocean View And Beach Access Steps Away

This luxury ocean view home is fully furnished and has been freshly updated with new paint and carpeting!

Our professionally decorated home is located across the street from Carolina Beach with direct beach access just steps away. There are 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and is outfitted for cooking when you are longing for the many fresh seafood options that are available. The home has hardwood floors and five flat screen TV’s throughout the house. There is also access to high speed wireless internet service, included.

For ocean viewing, there are two nicely furnished covered decks. One is on the main 2nd floor and the other is just off the master bedroom. Both are perfect for reading, enjoying meals with family and friends, or just watching our pelicans soar along the wave tops. You might even catch a glimpse of an occasional whale blowing as it surfaces just offshore.

The entry first floor has two bedrooms - one with a queen bed and one with twin beds. Both share a full bath. Just outside is a convenient shower to wash off the sand and salt from a fun day on the beach.

The main second floor has the greatroom with living room, dining and a gourmet kitchen. This level also has a room with a queen sleep sofa offering additional sleeping quarters or it can be used as a den with TV and other electronics for the kids to get away and watch movies or play games while you relax. There is also a full bath on the main floor.

The third floor has two guest rooms that share a full bath - one bedroom equipped with a queen and the other one with a cool pyramid bunk (full lower and twin upper).

The spectacular king master bedroom with private deck, ocean views and a fabulous master bathroom is also on the third floor, includes a shower and whirlpool tub.

Here's what previous guests had to say: “We just love it! The location is perfect and the house is just beautiful, with plenty of space for our family.” “We had such a wonderful time at your house.” “It more than exceeded our expectations.” “Everyone in our party was comfortable and happy.” “This is a GORGEOUS home.” “It was a pleasure staying at your lovely home. We had such a good time being right across the street from the beach.” “Everything was perfect. Your house is beautiful and we enjoyed staying there.” “Thanks for providing the basis of our great family memories.”

Carolina Beach is an incredible vacation spot, with something for everyone in the family. Miles of uncrowded ocean beach for wading, swimming, surfing, beachcombing or surf fishing. We also offer nearby fishing piers, rare “drive on” beaches, great restaurants, and fresh seafood markets selling today’s catches. For sports fans, there are terrific golf courses, great off shore fishing, basketball, tennis courts and all the water sports that you can imagine.

Nearby is the charming town of Southport, accessible by car or a car ferry. Carolina Beach is 20 minutes from historic Port City of Wilmington, which boasts delightful riverside restaurants and shopping along its river boardwalk in downtown along the Cape Fear River. We even have the battleship North Carolina available to the public, Screen Gems movie studio, and our International Airport served by Delta and US Airways.

Fort Fisher State Park is only minutes away with the NC Aquarium and miles of natural and unspoiled beaches. It is the location of Civil War's Fort Fisher, whose fame is highlighted in the recent Academy Award winning movie, Abraham Lincoln.

From our home, there are great restaurants and a Tiki bar within walking distance on the beach. Come and enjoy the sound of waves crashing on the beach as you relax in luxurious comfort.

About Steve and Jane Haynes

Our large family of four generations loves this home for gatherings and the great beach location!! While all of us have lived or grown up in North Carolina and the Wilmington area, our family is now stretched from North Carolina to Washington State. What better place to for us all to come together as often as possible, than Carolina Beach.

Steve and Jane Haynes purchased this house in 2012

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering in September with 7 adults and the property was more than adequate. It is a lovely home with all modern amenities including a large open kitchen/dining room/family room area. It was perfect for our family and for a few others who visited while we were there. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evenings with the ocean view. We had an easy walk across the street to the beach and enjoyed nearby restaurants as well. I would highly recommend this property!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had ten people staying in this house, four children ages 3-10. The house was perfect for us. The kitchen was well equipped, everything was clean, and nicely decorated. It felt like home. The TV room behind the kitchen became the playroom for the kids so it kept the living area less cluttered with toys. We loved sitting on the deck watching the water. We appreciated the easy, quick walk to the beach. The washing machine broke,while we were there. Although it couldn't be repaired during our stay, we appreciated the quick response from the owners. The little ones went to the amusement park at night two times and loved it. We took trips to Wilmington and also took the ferry to Southport one afternoon. We highly recommend this property!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family, which included 6 adults and 6 children, ranging from ages 12 years - 9 months stayed here. The house was extremely well laid out. There were two bedrooms on the first floor, which you couldn't hear anything going on the second floor while trying to sleep. My son, who is 16 months, slept in the second floor TV room, and as soon as you shut this door you couldn't hear what was happening outside of it. Though you are literally not on the beach, it is so conveniently located. It took us only 250 steps to get there! The house was conveniently located. There was an ice cream shop only 4 blocks away and restaurants within 1 mile. There also was a grocery store around 1 mile away. The house was immaculate. I don't know how they keep it so clean considering how much sand we dragged in on a daily basis, but it was. The kitchen was fully stocked with measuring utensils, pots/pans, cups, etc. We never were in need of something there. The owners were also very responsive. The air conditioning was not functioning properly when we first arrived, and all I had to do was text the owner and they had a serviceman out within an hour. They were absolutely amazing to work with because of how responsive and understanding they were.

Better than home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been taking beach vacations together for almost every year the last 15 years. This home is by far the nicest, cleanest, and we'll equipped home we have stayed in on vacation!! It did not have a pool, and was not ocean front, but it is literally right a crossed the street from the beach. We stayed with another family and our kids had a blast running up and down the stairs. It is a duplex, however we never heard the other occupants, other than hearing some footsteps on the stairs periodically. We would highly recommend this rental to any other beach goers!!
