The sun sets every night at the end of your dock! Pelicans, herons, egrets and mallard ducks are frequent visitors and dolphins sometimes ply the waters in front of the house. If you want to sit on the beach with a book, it's one short block to the ocean and we provide your beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and boogie boards .

With 2 large bedrooms and an artist's loft/studio, this home was designed with an open floor plan for easy living beach house comfort and to take advantage of the views and light. Enjoy stunning views from the living room/ dining room and kitchen. Three TVs with many channels and wifi are provided for rainy days. Floors throughout are riverwood, made of logs harvested and milled after hundreds of years in the Cape Fear River.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, jetted garden tub and separate bath with shower. The even larger bedroom upstairs has a queen bed and a very comfortable queen size futon/bed with an adjoining full bath with tub. The waterfront loft has a queen sleeper sofa. There is not privacy for this loft/studio area as it overlooks the living room and there is an open hallway with no door between the loft area and the bedroom upstairs. The elevator accesses all 3 levels for easy living.

Great place for family fun and relaxation with linens and all modern conveniences provided: Elevator, central dual zone air conditioning, dishwasher, fridge with through-the-door ice maker and water dispenser, washer/dryer, and more importantly a hammock, porch swing and rocking chairs! We also have available a kayak, kiddie pool, sand toys, pack n play, high chair, and 2 booster seats for your use while here.

Right in front of the house is a great place to practice the booming new sport of paddleboarding. A local world class surfer offers a surf camp for all ages and the local rec center offers Zumba and yoga classes.

About Julie

I am a native Wilmingtonian and have built my home at Carolina Beach as my dream home on the beach. It is my one and only home. I have been fortunate that my guests have treated my home with great respect and taken good care of it during their stay. I'm glad to be able to share my home with you during the summer.

Why Julie chose Coastal North Carolina

Very few islands offer the waterfront views I have here on the sound, and yet are only a block from the ocean. I have the best of both worlds here, a boat at my doorstep and the beach a very short walk away.

A wonderful family vacation - we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation at the beach that was not actually ON the beach. And quite honestly, we loved the location on the waterway more than being on the beach. We spent more time sitting on the back porch & fishing from the dock than we even spent at the beach.

The home has everything you need for a great vacation; beach chairs, coolers, beach toys, and even a 6' surf board.

Very nice, spacious and clean! Summer 2015

  • 4 of 5

Property very nice and home was clean, with a great dock and plenty of toys such as kayak, boogie boards and beach toys! The location was great, pretty much a one block walk to the beach.

Things to consider; their were not enough linens such as towels for a large family of 6. Also all the closests are locked with no access by the owner, so you can't really unpack and put things away. The home is described as a three bedroom, but really it's like a two bedroom with the second floor being open. You have to walk through one room to access the other, so privacy is a concern if your really needing three true bedrooms.

The owner was a pleasure to deal with and very nice and helpful in every way. Great communicator and concerned about your stay while your there. Would stay again.

Thanks Julie!!!

Owner's Response: Anthony, if you had requested more towels, I would have brought you some. I am sorry you didn't call me. I provide 9 towels, hand towels, washcloths, as well as beach towels. There is a washer & dryer for your convenience, especially helpful when staying for more than a week like you did. I also apologize that you did not know the layout of the house before renting. I try to make sure folks know that the only bedroom with complete privacy is the master bedroom. As I say in my HomeAway description of my home, the entire second floor is open, with no walls except for the bath and hallway. It's great for families like yours, but not for more than 2 couples requiring their own private bedroom door. I'm glad your family had a great vacation here with your boat docked at your back door. I thank you for taking such good care of my home while you were here! I look forward to see you all again. Julie

This property is breathtaking and the most beautiful home on the waterway. Julie is so easy to work with and is always available if you need her. We would definitely make this a yearly vacation. The house has everything you could possibly need. It has felt like being at home.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation in the beautiful home. The house was beautiful and the deck had the most amazing view. Very short walk to a great beach. Everything was perfect. I miss sitting on the deck watching my kids kayak, fish and paddleboard. Loved it! Thanks Julie for a truly great family vacation.
