About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This stunning first floor condominium comes with an expansive deck with sliding glass doors that lead to a large master bedroom with king-size bed. A second bedroom comes complete with a queen over twin trundle bed give new meaning to the term 'comfortable elegance.' This oceanfront condominium allows you to watch the sunrise or view the dolphins and surfers play in the sea.

Our home has been created to meet your every need. Each year we look for opportunities to introduce upgrades to our home. We now have a new 55” flat screen “smart” 3D HDTV with an amazing Sonos® sound system with a 3D DVD mounted on the wall in the living room. TVs in the bedrooms are also flat screen. This year we have completely redecorated with all new furniture, new carpets and paint. If you feel like staying in, there are plenty of games to play and if you high speed internet is included with your stay. The unit also has its own washer and dryer. You will love it!

The beaches are clean and not crowded, even during the height of the season. Walk up and down the beautiful sands (which are your front yard!) at any hour of the day or night. Or, simply listen to the sound of the waves hitting the shore right from the interior of your retreat.

Do not feel like straying far from your retreat? This condominium comes with a second deck that overlooks a full-size pool! Yummy restaurants are nearby. You can even walk down the beach from your retreat to the Ocean Grill Restaurant.

Quaint downtown Wilmington on the Cape Fear River with shopping and restaurants is a short 20 minute drive away. Take the ferry to Southport and eat at the yummy restaurants. Fishy Fishy is one of my favorites.

Rental of our home does not include linens, but we can have these provided for a small additional charge. Please let me know if you would like to take advantage of this when you make your reservation.

About Karen Berliner

This is a beautiful, restful retreat that I hope you will enjoy. It fills our soul and we hope it will yours!

Karen Berliner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Karen Berliner chose Carolina Beach

While most people love the interior, I get the most comments on the expansive deck, which is unlike any others in Carolina Beach. The interior is gorgeous, though!

What makes this condo unique

This is a beautiful 1st floor unit, so you have beautiful ocean views without having to climb many stairs. All that is between you and the ocean is the dunes, which give you the feeling that you are camping on the beach. And, what a campsite! The deck is covered so you can go out there even when there is some rain. We have an outdoor shower just below our unit and the walkway to the beach is right next to the building, so it's easy to go back and forth from the condo to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steve & Karen

It's hard to believe our week is over. Time passes to quickly in paradise. We are repeat vacationers in Carolina Beach. This is our first stay in your condo. Your condo is beautifully decorated. The view is spectacular. The kids enjoyed the paddle boats. We took a cruise on the Henrietta III, walked "old Wilmington" and enjoyed the shopping. We try to do different things each time we come!

Lovely property with great views

  • 5 of 5

The property is updated and the beds are great. The kitchen is well stocked though we did not use it, but had we needed to it would have had anything we needed. Having a TV in every room makes it nice for everyone to have their own space; and though we didn't have the weather to take advantage of the beautiful large balcony, it is well furnished and has a magnificent view. I would say it is not a place for children (because it is so high end), so the one other renovation that I would do is take out the dated tub/shower combo and put in nicer showers. That would be my only negative. Other than that the condo can't be beat!! They have thought of everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. Sorry about the weather but December can be a little chilly. (We also can have temperatures in the 70s some times in December and January!). We only want to address one of your comments about our home not being suitable for younger family members. We have strived to make our home beautiful, comfortable and functional for all. We selected our furniture to be quite resilient. All are welcome!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved the porch and just a few steps to the beach. Beds were very comfortable. Never had to worry about parking space. The kitchen was well stocked. The decor is gorgeous. Wish we could come back every year

Beautifully​ located Oceanside. Just as beautifully appointed condo.

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy Sands V. As soon as you walk in you're drawn to the deck and the sounds of the ocean. The condo is stocked with anything you may need. We love using the outdoor grill, eating on the deck while watching the waves. Karen is so easy to contact if needed. She's an absolute delight to work with. If you're experiencing stress when you walk in it'll be gone in a minute or two. So much in the area to do if you want to venture away from the beach. The Ferry to Southport is a favorite. Calabash is close enough to enjoy the World Famous style of preparing fresh fish. Front Street Brewery downtown Wilmington is another favorite stop. Breakfast at Kate's, Granny's or Gulfstream never disappoints. Fresh donuts from Wake n' Bake is a must do. But nothing beats watching the sunrise from the private deck in your PJ's. The beach is never crowded or dirty. Everyone is friendly and helpful if needed. Kure Pier is just a walk down the shore. Go on book this condo...You won't be disappointed!

Very sweet owner!! The back porch facing the ocean is amazing!! We didn't even mind that it poured the rain one day. We just spent it out, lounging on the deck. Plan to stay here again!
