Are you looking for that special get-away to soothe your soul and remember what the joys of life are all about? This newly redecorated home, located in the Sands V Condominium Complex, is here to offer you all that you are looking for in a vacation retreat.
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 and new furntiture that will help you to feel as if you are 'in the islands'. A second bedroom with twin beds and a new living room couch with a fold out queen 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.
My home has been created to meet your every need. Pack your favorite CDs and allow the stereo to serenade you with sweet sounds. Or, if it is television you enjoy, this place will allow you to watch expanded basic cable service from both bedrooms, or the living room. I just put a new Sony LCD HD TV in the living room and it is fantastic! TVs in the bedrooms are flat screen and the TV in the second bedroom has a DVD. The TV in the living room accommodates both DVDs and VHS formats. (Please note that the number of TV Channels available from Oct 1, 2015 through April 1, 2016 will be more limited than the usual offering.) If you feel like staying in, there are plenty of games to play and if you want to CONNECT TO HIGH SPEED INTERNET, a connection is available at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE! The unit also has its own washer and dryer. The master bedroom has a beautiful pillow-top king mattress (and box spring). 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.
Since I have made many updates (and continue to do so every year) the posted virtual tour may not show many of the new improvements such as the new couch, furniture in the master bedroom, new vanity and granite top in the Master Bedroom, a new sliding glass door that leads to the deck, etc.) I have renovated both bathrooms, put a beautiful new glass top stove in have just completed the renovation of the kitchen with granite countertops and a custom tiled backsplash and installed beautiful new carpet.

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

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

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!
This vacation rental was one of our favorites ever! The condo was clean and furnished with almost everything you could need on a beach trip. We were really impressed with how well thought out the amenities were. It is very obvious that a pleasant and relaxing experience is the goal of the owner. Karen followed up enough times to ensure we were satisfied but not so much that it became intrusive. We were also impressed with her devotion to customer satisfaction. It's great to know the owner as a person and not a nameless realty service that only knows you by your credit card number.
The highlights of our trip included The Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar. A great staff with excellent food and perfect atmosphere. A carriage ride through the historic section of Wilmington was great! We rented bikes from Shorebreak bikes and found many pleasant side streets and friendly neighborhoods to ride through. Shorebreak even delivered and picked up the bikes for us which reduced stress and let us focus on enjoyment. We would recommend you take time to ride the ferry into Southpoint and have a steamed plate of goodness at Provisions Supply and Restaurant. This was another spot that had really friendly service and you got to eat right on the water.
Access to the beach was extremely convenient. We were right next to the walk way to the beach. It was literally a 2 minute walk from our condo to the ocean....yes, I timed it.
It was a great experience for us and we will be making a return trip!!
Relaxing deck with a great view! We enjoyed the stay and liked the convenient access to the beach and parking. The couch, bed and bedroom patio door have seen better days, but considering all variables, it is worth it. I would recommend to others.
Thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo. We had a great two weeks. The condo has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable. The view from the deck is unbelievable. We couldn't have asked for anything more except maybe a little bit cooler temperatures since we chose the two weeks of a heat wave. Thankfully it was just a short walk over the dunes to a fabulous beach or just a few steps down to the pool. Everything is so close. We did the boardwalk, dinners out, ferry to Southport, lazed on the beach and by the pool, etc. Thank you again. Our vacation was amazing!
Brought my wife and 2 young daughters here for the week. We have enjoyed it thoroughly. Well appointed condo with an enormous deck with a near unbeatable view of the ocean and sunrise. We have not used the pool yet, but have seen it used extensively by other guests and seen it being cleaned by a pool service on several occasions. Will certainly come back. Can't wait to sign the guest book now that the negative 'review' that is best placed online instead of a guest log has been removed.
After reading all the great review I hate writing this one. The reviews and pictures is what we were going by. Honestly the deck was the best part. Beautiful. When we arrived I was really surprised how dirty it was. The cleaners are obviously not doing their job. I had to go over the floors and run sweeper and wipe down kitchen counters. By the time I got to bathroom I said forget it. The pool was only about 60 degrees and only cleaned once that we saw. I just had surgery and was looking forward to the pool. We actually left on Thursday and stayed at Marriot. I've never had this experience before. I would definitely check on cleaners. Sorry for review but this was our one and only vacation and we had to pay extra for the Marriot.
My daughter and I stayed a week at the condo. Great view of ocean. Also very convenient/very near to get onto beach. The furniture was nice. It was a pleasure to be there. We would both go back. (Rae is 28 and I am 63.)
