Description from owner

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 a movie with Richard Gere and Diane Lane called "Nights in Rodanthe". Movie was released in October of 2008.

Beds: 4 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Beds

About the area

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).

“The Perfect Beach House”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

I've been coming here for over 25 years. I came with my parents in the beginning, along with my family, and now my children have grown up and come with their families! It is THE PERFECT BEACH HOUSE! We absolutely love it! It is one of the few houses which has a porch on both the beach side and the street side, and a good view from both. If you don't have a breeze on one side, you do on the other. Stanley has plenty of rockers on both, plus a swing on the street side, and additional taller chairs on the beach side, as well as a table and chairs. There are also chairs under the house, where it's cool and breezy. There is a small walkway with sitting area off of the beach side porch. Perfect for sitting out under the open sky at night, where you can see the stars, and a good place to watch the Fireworks' display on Thursday nights. The house is within walking distance to the Boardwalk, restaurants, shops, anything you might need, as well as a wonderful pond and park across the street, with a playground for the kids and walkway all around the pond, perfect for walking and jogging. There is also a small store within walking distance by the pond, which sells any grocery necessities you might need "at the last minute" (which we did several times), plus locally grown vegetables, etc. You can walk there in 5 minutes! I cannot say enough good things about this house and Stanley. He has become a good friend and a great person to rent from and always helpful if needed.

Owner's reply: Joy, It means so much to have you and your family stay with us year after year. We look forward to having you for many more years. Your review was very kind and quite descriptive of the house and everything it offers. Stanley

“Perfection”

I should tell ppl not to rent..... Just so I could keep it all for myself. Stanley is a joy to rent from and is willing to answer any and all questions. You won't find a better location. I'm so glad I found this beach house and we plan on coming back every year that we can. Thank you so much Stanley for allowing my family and I the opportunity to stay at your beautiful beach house.

PERFECT! • Beach was not crowded, sand bar good for children,and the surfing was good. PERFECT We needed room for 10: • 4 queen and 2 twin trundle beds. PERFECT! • Kitchen table seats 6 and bar seats 4. PERFECT! We like to sit on the porch: • 2 porches both with great views and at least one shaded; one with a swing. PERFECT! We like the house to be nice: • The house was nicely decorated; comfortable, and beachy with good taste. PERFECT! • Large living room with huge, new TV. PERFECT! We like things close: • The location was close to everything; most within walking distance. PERFECT! • The town park and lake were just across the street with view from porch. PERFECT! We like people easy to work with: • The owner, Stanley, was super to work with. PERFECT! • He gave us a great suggestion for a restaurant – Fish Bites. PERFECT.

“Loved It”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

We had a great time. We were there the week of July 4th. The house was great. We loved the location. Beach Front and walking distance to just about everything. We spent some time every day on the beach. It was easy to hop on the fairy to Southport for lunch and the young adults walked to see bands almost every evening. It was a great time for all of us. Thank you.

Owner's reply: So glad you had a great time at the Beach House hope you come back soon!

“What a FIND!!!”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2014

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.

Owner's reply: Your family is always welcome at our beach house! Thank you for your gracious review. So glad you and your family were able to make memories at the beach! Please come back anytime! Stan

“Wonderful week at the beach”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

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 week at the beach really describes the good times you had at the beach house and this assures me that we are doing things right to help make it happen. Glad you got to meet my son and I hope to meet you some day. I like to have a good repore with all my guest and I have talked with you several times which I tell all my guest I can be reached any time if needed. Hope to have you back soon.

“Wonderful Beach House!!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

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!!!

“Awesome!!!!!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2013

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!

Owner's reply: So glad you had a wonderful time at our beach house. Also was glad you enjoyed the new ceramic flooring and hope you will come back soon!!

“Amazing House”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2013

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.

Owner's reply: So glad that you had a wonderful vacation at our beach house and looking forward to having you come and stay again soon.
