Description of the Carolina Beach vacation home rental
This is one of the few oceanfront beach houses in Carolina Beach! Concrete covers the area under the house with plenty of room for parking by those staying the week with no concern of shared parking with other units. Four large bedrooms with full size closets and dressers provide an enormous amount of living space to accommodate several families. To make the most flexible sleeping arrangements, two of these rooms contain double and twin beds while the two oceanfront bedrooms have queen size beds. A well stocked kitchen area is designed for easy food preparation and provides room for large family meals. The enormous ocean front porch allows groups to enjoy the sights and sounds of the surf or have a relaxing outside dinner. On the street side there is a porch complete with rocking chairs and swing for those cool nights away from the ocean side breeze. There is a utility room with washer and dryer that also serves as excellent storage for beach chairs, fishing gear or even several bikes. House was recently used to film a scene for an upcoming movie with Richard Gere and Diane Lane called "Nights in Rodanthe". Movie is due to be released in October of 2008.
Area Information
Activities: The Beach House is conveniently located to the fishing marina, party cruises, restaurants and the shops of Carolina Beach. We are also located across the street from the Carolina Beach Lake that is surrounded by a concrete walking trail and also offers gazebos and paddle boats. The beach is wide and unaffected by previous hurricanes with a life guard stand that is manned daily during the summer months. Some previous guests have enjoyed excellent surf fishing in front of the house while others have gone in four wheel drive vehicles to fish on the north end of the beach.

Area: For those of you who want to explore the area, we are 5 minutes from the recently remodeled NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher Museum and Civil War site, or you can take the ferry to Southport for a day trip to Myrtle Beach. Historic Wilmington is within a 15 minute drive and boasts many attractions such as horse-drawn carriage tours, fine dining, golfing, shopping, historic home tours, and the USS North Carolina Battleship. Some other attractions include the Children's Museum, Cape Fear Museum, The Bellamy Mansion and tours of the Screen Gems Movie Studios (where Matlock, Dawson's Creek and numerous movies have been filmed).

What a FIND!!!

Two thumbs up! Five star accommodations! Price very affordable. My husband, daughter and son-in-law , grand kids and I had a terrific time. Four large bedrooms, 2 full baths. Plenty of room for 10 and a couple of couch potatoes to boot! The front and back porches were 70 ft. length combined, with a view of ocean and the lake. Walk to Boardwalk, restaurants and shopping. Only problem we had was leaving!!! Thanks Stan. We'll definitely be back.

Wonderful week at the beach

What a fabulous week we had June 22-29th. The Location of the cottage and the ocean and lake views were great. The size of the cottage was just right for our family. Having a beach access right next door was great and being near the broadwalk was good. The Fireworks on Thursday night were colorful and enjoyable. Meeting Stanley's son and wife were great, as if we new Stanley in person. The front and back porches with rocking chairs were exceptional. We would definitely go back again.

Owner's reply:

Wonderful Beach House!!

What a wonderful beach house!!! My family has stayed here for our "week at the beach" for about 25 years. My children have grown up coming here, and now they bring their own children here to experience all that they loved growing up. It is a short walk from the "Boardwalk", which has all kinds of rides and things to do for all ages. My grandkids' ages are 3 to 8, and they absolutely loved all of the activities at the Boardwalk, as my own kids did as they grew up. Another fun thing, which is very accessible, is walking around the lake, which we did every day, and stopped at the playground for the kids to play. What makes this house so much fun is that you can sit on the porch and watch the "jumping fish" in the lake and the ducks swimming, and all the activities going on at the lake or you can sit on the ocean side. Lots of rockers on both porches, plus a swing on the Lakeside. The walkway to the beach is right beside the house which makes it very convenient. We also enjoyed eating at the table on the porch, especially the kids. They ate nearly every meal there. I can't say enough good things about this house and would highly recommend it. Stanley (the owner) is very, very nice and friendly and helpful, and I hope to be staying here every year for a long, long time. The house is very spacious and easily accommodates 10 people. (That's how many of us there was.) And there is plenty of parking underneath. Plus, the kids enjoy playing under there. The two porches (on the Lakeside and the Oceanside) are wonderful!!! No matter what time of day, there is a nice breeze on one or the other of these porches (or both). The two porches alone are enough to make this the best house at Carolina Beach!!!

Owner's reply:

So glad that you and your family have enjoyed the beach house so much that you have rented annually
for 25 years. I have enjoyed having you and your family grow up there and you are like family to me. Look forward to seeing you next year.

I love staying here. The owner "Stan" is wonderful. He is very helpful on things to do and places to eat. He had just put new flooring in the kitchen and bathroom. It is really nice and easy to clean. The ocean view is spectacular. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to all of our friends. You are close to the boardwalk and "BRITTS" donuts is within walking distance. The beach was not crowded and the lake behind the house is beautiful. They have a lot of things going on around the lake. You just have to check the dates. I would go back tomorrow if we could. The house is really large to accompany large groups. Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful home!

Stanley Goodman

Owner's reply:

hope you will come back soon!!

Amazing House

My family and I want to thank Mr. Goodman for letting us stay in his beautiful home. This house was perfect. We had more then enough room with our family of ten and all the aminities of home. In the morning we could sit on the back porch and watch the sunrise over the ocean. In the evenings we could sit on the front porch and watch the sun set over the lake. The house is in the perfect location just minutes away from walking distance to the boardwalk. We can't wait to go back again. Thanks again Mr. Goodman for the wonderful memories my family and I now have of this fantastic home.

wonderful family vacation

We had a wonderful time at the Beach House. It was very comfortable & was perfect for our 5 grandchildren, rangeing in ages from 3 to 11yrs. We all had a blast. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we were able to cook wonderful meals. The view of the ocean from the 2 master bedrooms & the living room was wonderful. We look forward to renting it again next year. Great house

Family Vacation

Our stay at this property was very very enjoyable. Plenty of room, well maintained house, spacious bathrooms, clean, and spacious kitchen/den area. The parking area beneath the home was nice for the cars and the kids when it was too hot to play outside. The washer dryer downstairs was really nice to get things cleaned before the trip home. Porches were great areas to relax. AC was more than adequate to keep us cool. Great place to stay and we look forward to a return trip.

Stanley Goodman

Owner's reply:

So glad you had and enjoyaable time at the Beach House and looking forward to your return.

Relaxation Station. Location, location, location.

This was a great last minute trip. The owner was exceptional to deal with and the cottage was perfect. Nothing flashy, but simple the way it should be at the ocean. The view from the living room is awesome. You could literally sit there with no radio, television, etc. and just gaze at the ocean. I will also mention Bowman's at the Beach. Delicious seafood delivered in 20 minutes. Phenomenal.

Stanley Goodman

Owner's reply:

Glad I was able to accomodate you on your last minute trip and glad you enjoyed the house. Hope to have you back again.

We absolutely loved the house!! It was perfect. Awesome view of the ocean. Great big deck. Kid friendly (baby gate, high chair, games). Lots of sitting room in living and dining room. Kitchen had everything needed. All bedrooms oceanfront. Great price. Couldn't have asked for anything more---except maybe a longer stay!!
