About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Ocean Front Beach House, sleeps 8-10

Come enjoy Alex and Barb's personal slice of beach paradise. As the owners, we absolutely love staying at 'Happi Ours.' It's more than a vacation house, it's a state of mind. Our Oceanfront (on the sand) Beach House features 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a fully-equipped kitchen with ocean views, hardwood floors, central heat & air, phone, VCR/DVD, cable TV, Internet, washer & dryer, spacious living room, and a covered deck & sun deck. Master bedroom has queen size bed and full bath with Jacuzzi for two, second bedroom also has queen bed, and third bedroom has double bunk beds (full on bottom and twin on top).

There's plenty to enjoy in Carolina Beach AND you're just 20 minutes from downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Happi Ours blends the relaxed beach atmosphere of Carolina Beach with the cultural and theatrical benefits of Wilmington. Come vacation on a narrow slip of land pressed between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, an area appropriately known as Pleasure Island.

Carolina Beach is close to many attractions including a fabulous Aquarium, waterpark and various shopping and restaurant venues.

We had a wonderful time! The place was wonderful and spacious enough for all 10 of us to be comfortable. It was very well equipped with everything we needed. The deck was amazing. Alex was wonderful to work with. We will be going back next year!!!

Great Views of the ocean 180 degrees

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. We were in a bind with the house we were suppose to rent and it was nothing like we thought. Alex met us here and we stayed for 4 nights and it was fantastic. The views of the ocean is 180 degrees I believe it is the best on the beach. Very clean place to stay. It is a little more like a cabin and that was great. We will absolutly stay here again. You cannot find a better person than Alex. Thank You Very Much for taking care of us on such a short notice. The beach is one of the best we have been to. Looking forward to our next stay.

Fantastic Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is absolutely amazing. As described, you truly can't get any closer to the beach. The walkway right off your deck goes over the dunes and onto the beach of the Atlantic Ocean. Plenty of sleeping space and Carolina Beach was a quaint and charming town - you could choose to either stay active or kick back and relax. We can't wait to go back. Highly Recommend!

Carolina Beach is just 20 minutes down the road from downtown Wilmington North Carolina on a narrow slip of land pressed between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean and dubbed Pleasure Island.

In the heart of Carolina Beach is Jubilee Park, one of two amusement parks on the southern coast. Nearby, you'll find water slides, miniature golf courses and other things that appeal to the kids. The town also has a movie theater, grocery stores and bait shops. The beachfront motels, including several vintage motor courts, offer a welcome blast from the past. If you were a kid during the '50s and your parents took you on vacation to the beach, this was the kind of place where you probably stayed. Carolina Beach also offers one of the state parks in the region, where you can enjoy the wonders of nature.

The community is growing in appeal to locals from Wilmington North Carolina for one big reason: It isn't crowded yet. Many a Wilmingtonian has given Wrightsville Beach over to visitors for the summer in the past few years and turned to Carolina Beach for a quiet spot on the sand.

Downtown Wilmington, North Carolina Today hosts is the center of the cultural arts scene and hosts many art galleries, music shops and the Cape Fear Museum. The popularity and charm of this area has attracted many retail stores, financial institutions, entertainment, filmmaking and dining facilities.

During the day, downtown Wilmington is quaint and charming, but at night it comes alive in a whole new way. Dance clubs, jazz bars, live soaps, local and touring musicals, venues for rock 'n' roll, rhythm and blues and more can be found in the 55 block area of the downtown commercial district. Perhaps the nicest thing about downtown Wilmington, and something that separates it from the rest of the city and nearby communities, is its pleasant and fascinating walkability. The Riverwalk, with its view of the Battleship North Carolina moored on the western shore, is a great place to stroll, grab a hot dog from a street vendor, listen to free music and gaze at the river.

Because Wilmington is a prominent international port of call, it's likely that you'll see an occasional ship being escorted by tugs up the river. The Star-News publishes an announcement when the ships are in town as a courtesy, the ships offer free tours of their oceangoing quarters.

The residential area of downtown Wilmington, lush with live oaks draped in Spanish moss, beautiful azaleas and native oleander, is a plant enthusiast's delight. Most of the homes downtown have private gardens that are occasionally opened to the public during special events such as the Azalea Festival in the spring and Riverfest in the fall. A walk through these areas is not only aesthetically pleasant, but it can be educationally fun too.

The film industry lends an exciting opportunity for spotting the occasional celebrity or just watching the process of making movies. Filmmaking now accounts for 11 percent of the local economy and has the potential for growth as a result of Wilmington's well established film industry infrastructure, including EUE/Screen Gems Studios, a seasoned crew base, and active film commission and a large talent pool. Today only Los Angeles and New York City surpass Wilmington in film production. Since the first movie filmed here in 1983 (Dino DeLaurentiis' Firestarter) Wilmington has been home to more than 300 movies and six television series, with Dawson's Creek as the area's latest hit. Stars spotted in recent years include Bruce Willis, Richard Gere, Katherine Hepburn, Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Mathew Modine, Sharon Stone, Patrick Swayze, Julie Harris and Anthony Hopkins. Linda Lavin, Broadway star and a woman known affectionately as 'Alice' from the '40s TV series, lives downtown and works closely with the Community Arts Center.
