We can't imagine a better vacation than the five days we spent in this beautifully appointed, spacious condo. The owners were wonderful to work with and made us feel so welcome. We found our home away from home and look forward to returning in the not too distant future. Thank you for everything.

Home away from Home

September 22, 2014

This condo is a great place to stay! It is in a perfect location at Carolina Beach. We also loved it because it was pet friendly, very clean, spacious and had EVERYTHING we needed. We were thrilled to find a nice, clean place that allowed us to bring our dog. When staying here, you feel like it's your home away from home. Jay is a pleasure to work with as she responds very quickly to emails. You can't beat this place for the price. Definitely worth the money! We look forward to visiting again. Thank you Bill and Jay for sharing your condo with us!

We had a wonderful time!!!!! The condo was clean, spacious & a great location. Very close to the beach. It was nice because our teenage children could walk to the beach by themselves. The storagee was nice because we didn't have to carry the beach chairs up the stairs. Overall we had a great time & the condo was great. We will certainly stay again. Thanks




You will not regret for one moment!

Bill and Jay are awesome people. So down to earth. Bill showed us around the place and told us where to eat. My Dad and my 2 dogs really enjoy the place so did I. It's Clean and everything you need is right there. We and the dogs love hanging out on the baloney. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful, it was our first time in the Carolina Beach, where to eat and hang out on pier and have a drink. I was aw how the people in Carolina Beach were so friendly and so laid back. I will be back next year ( already had plan this year). You will not regret it.

Absolutely amazing rental

January 25, 2014

Jay and Bill were so amazing to work with! Jay answered every question I had in a timely manner and very sweetly. Bill met us at the condo to show us around and collect the money and he was so great! He gave us a grand tour of the condo, and even sat and talked to us for awhile! The condo itself was so perfect!! Large, clean, stocked, and even the beds were comfy! They had everything we would have needed stocked, and there were even blankets and games for us to use! The location was so beautiful!! Literally steps from the beach!! The beach was also very quiet and felt very private. It is very close to stores and restaurants, as well as Southport and Wilmington. It was so nice that we could explore all of the beach towns so easily. We were so happy about the whole experience we even left them a thank you gift! They were both a pleasure to work and communicate with, and we will definitely be booking with them again! It was the best vacation we have ever taken!

The condo was excellent. Very well maintained and in a great location. The beach was almost right outside our door. Jay answered all my e-mails promptly, and Bill was there to meet us. Great people, awesome place.

horrible weather didn't stop a great vacation

May 6, 2013

When we walked in the place was immaculate, it was cozy and spacious and we did not feel cramped at all. the only thing bad about our trip was that it rained some every day we were there. I loved that it was so close to the beach and you didn't have to cross any roads. I was originally worried about it being on a beach access with all the traffic but it turned out to be great as there was very little traffic. Also there was a party going on next door when we arrived, yet we heard nothing through the walls. Everything was wonderful and the owners as well as the next door neighbors were great. I will come back and stay again and again.

New Year's at the Beach

January 2, 2013

My partner and our little dog spent 3 nights in this condo. It was during the New Year's Eve holiday time. We cooked ourselves up a great dinner in the well equipped kitchen, then watched TV and at midnight there was a fireworks show over the ocean at Kure beach pier. The condo worked out so well for us..very clean and nicely laid out...lots of windows (ocean view is available from the deck outside the living room). It is a very short walk to the walkway which brings you right to the beach. We appreciated being able to bring our little dog along too. The owners Jay and Bill are super nice and very responsive with emails. Bill met us upon arrival and showed us around. We also appreciated their approval for an earlier check in. We would definitely recommend this condo and hope we can return later this year. One more thing...we appreciated the availability of recycle bins downstairs-

Very close to Beach

August 16, 2012

Condo is very close to beach. I could walk barefoot to the beach without much problem. This condo is not right on the beach, so the view of the beach isn't the greatest, although you can see the beach from the porch. The condo is nice and has beautiful hand made pottery and other art work on display. It would be a great place for any family to stay.

We loved our visit!

July 9, 2012

We spent a week here to celebrate our son's wedding. The wedding was located at nearby Fort Fisher on the beach and was absolutely beautiful. One day we went to Wilmington and shopped downtown, there was so much to do and see! Another day we took the Fort Fisher ferry to Southport, you can spend hours in the shops and antique stores and the ferry ride was scenic and fun (bring bread for the seagulls). The condo was spacious and clean and the beach access right outside was a lifesaver. Trying to cart beach supplies for 8 people would have been almost impossible otherwise, especially with two sets of grandparents. The washer and dryer and wi-fi were appreciated as well! We loved sitting on the balcony watching people walk down the street on one side and the ocean on the other. If this condo is available I highly recommend this rental, the owners are local, friendly and only a phone call away if you need anything.

a restful vacation in Carolina Beach

April 12, 2012

Bill and Jay have a very clean and attractive condo in a fourplex. The kitchen is well equipped compared to many rentals with plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans. There is a bit of a view of the ocean but you're a minute walk from the beach. The condo is pet-friendly and the charge is only $15 per night for your pet. The location is great, and you're minutes from the activity in town without having the noise. Plus Fort Fisher is a short ride away. A very good choice for pet owners who would like a clean and full-furnished condo right by the beach.

Beautiful Condo

January 5, 2012

Me, my daughter, her friend and our two pups stayed at the condo for New Years from December 31, 2010 through January 3, 2011. The condo is beautiful, steps away from the beach and it has all the amenities of home, a fully stocked kitchen, TV’s in 2 bedrooms and living room, all the beach amenities one needs for a fun day at the beach and a nice charcoal grill. The owners are the nicest people, they waived the charge for a foster pup we brought with us which I find praiseworthy. We will definitely stay here again.

Peaceful and beautiful

August 11, 2011

I stayed here with my husband and four daughters for a week. It is very well taken care of and roomy for 6 people and our scotty. We loved the fenced in backyard and pool and the closeness of the ocean. We will definitely stay here next year. Thanks for the beautiful accommodations and the great neighbors too.

perfect vacation

August 7, 2011

This was my sons first trip to the beach. The condo was in a great location. We had easy access to the beach and walking distance to shop and eat. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The beach was not crowded and the water was warm. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. We had a great time.

Better Than Advertised - Will Rent Again

June 2, 2011

The owner was so nice & welcomed us with a bottle of champagne since it was our anniversary. The condo was just lovely, quite clean and much larger than the photos show. Nice covered furnished outer deck with ocean view. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots & pans, utensils, etc. Lots of closet space, a full size washer & dryer, and the utility closet had everything you'd need to tidy up the condo before checking out. The walkway onto the beach is literally right next to the 4-plex - very short walk to the water, which is great when your hands are full with a beach bag & lounge chair. The unit is far enough from the Boardwalk that you're not bothered by noise all hours of the day & night, but close enough to ride a bike there if you're craving a donut from Britt's. This was my first visit to the condo, but it's now my go-to beach rental. Great amenities for the price & the owners could not be more kind.

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. Looks can always be deceiving on-line, however, the condo was bigger and more comfortable than we expected. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. Dinner on the balcony was spectacular!

Absolutely gorgeous townhouse. The pictures online give you an idea of what you are getting, but it was SO MUCH more than you see. We loved the area, and the beach was not too crowded. We cannot wait to come back again!
