About Amanda Ross - Care Taker

Welcome to 'Howe Wonderful'! This all started as Sandy's dream to have a place near the beach and for a girl from Pennsylvania her dream has come true. Pete is a local Wilmingtonian and recalls Carolina Beach in its early years. In the off season, we both enjoy working on the condo to make it a relaxing and fun place to come. We know you will enjoy our second home as much as we do.

Amanda Ross - Care Taker purchased this condo in 2005

Why Amanda Ross - Care Taker chose Coastal North Carolina

Carolina Beach is a great beach! It is has long beaches, little crowds, classic beach feel and dogs are allowed year around on the north end. Finally, being near the beach allows you to enjoy all the beautiful gifts the ocean brings.

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Harbor is a small development in which many locals live year around. The development also has the entire block between the ocean and canal. Tenants often comment how they feel as if they are the only ones at the beach in front of our development. We have even had some that leave their chairs in the same spot for the entire week and they are never moved. Life is good here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome! We hope you have enjoyed your stay at Carolina Beach. Please come again!

Great condo for family, including dogs!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, right near the beach, clean, comfy, pretty colors and decor. Excellent communication and got all my questions answered before the trip. I liked that it wasn't on the ground floor because I felt like that means less chances for bugs! The only issue we had was the microwave made a zapping sound when we turned it on so we didn't feel comfortable using it. (obviously this is not a big deal when everything else was perfect).

Just What We Needed! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two children were looking for a place to stay for Memorial Day weekend that was enough room for the four of us and close to the beach. This place is exactly what we were looking for and the price was great! When we first arrived we all walked in and the place was very clean and comfortable looking. We immediately got changed and went straight to the beach. The walk to the beach was literally two minutes! The beach location is perfect. It is not too crowded and no one was on top of eachother.

Once we were finished at the beach we went back to the condo and showered, dressed and went a 1 1/2 miles down the road to the amusement area where our children rode the rides and we had some dinner and drinks and watched the Fire Works for the opeining weekend. We were able to use the pool for a bit while the weather was nice and the covered parking for our car was awesome!

The condo is perfect for a small family as the two kids slept in the room with two twin beds and my wife and I slept in the master bedroom. We all showered and still had plenty of hot water. We didn't use the kitchen very much due to us eating out most of the weekend but they had everything you would need to cook meals. We saw people talk about the lack of channels on the TV. We hardly watched TV so it didn't bother us. When it rained at night we just went down to the Red Box at the gas station and checked out two movies so we had no problems at all. Also, we were allowed to bring our pet but we ended up not bringing him as he has bad hips and the steps wouldn't have been too good for him but either way the condo is pet friendly.

We were so relaxed and thank Sandra and Peter for allowing us to stay in their condo and we hope we will be able to again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this condo! My sister and I, along with our two dogs, take a yearly trip to the beach. We would defintely come back. We loved the beach decor..Felt like a place at the beach should. It was clean and roomy. Had everything we needed. Short walk to the beach. Convenient, assigned parking. True, the tv only got a couple of channels but there were dozens of VHS movies to choose from.( Also several book shelves of good books.) Having a washer and dryer would've been nice, but we just packed a few extra clothes..that we really didnt need anyway so that was no problem. The ocean at dusk was the most beautiful I have ever seen. We also enjoyed visiting Carolina Beach State Park which was less than 10 minutes away. I would definitely reccommend to friends and would love to come again.

Great Beach value

  • 4 of 5

Close to beach access, short walk to Pier, short drive to Boardwalk, and pet friendly! We enjoyed the pool as much as the beach. Covered parking helped keep car cooler on many hot days, and protected one stormy evening. We had a great week! Property manager was very helpful, and quick to respond, to a problem we had one evening.

Great Value! Close to beach access!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the condo the week after July 4th and had a great time! The condo was outfitted with everything needed to enjoy a great beach vacation. We rented the linens from Seaside Linens and they delivered them to the condo before our arrival. We had three adults and one small child with us and with the covered parking and beach access almost right across the street it made it easy. The boardwalk is just a short drive down or you can walk to the fishing pier the opposite way. The property manager is very helpful and the owners are close by as well if you need anything. We have family in the area and it was nice that the unit had two parking spaces so they could visit and all could walk to the beach. My son and nieces had fun playing in the pool just behind the building.

WHAT A WONDERFUL TIME!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home - despite 3 1/2" of rain over a 2 day period and gale force winds on another day (both of which kept us off the beach) - we had a FANTASTIC time!!!! I think the condo is much prettier in person even than in the pictures - beautifully decorated, cheerful and functional...we had quite a crowd (5 adults, one 3 year old child and 3 small dogs) but never felt overly crowded. I would definitely consider coming back and hope we have the opportunity to do so! ~ Linda Sherrill
