Our third stay at your Condo - still awesome

September 6, 2015

Thanks Carol and Lawrence for having us again this year. Our stay again this year was awesome! Your home is always so inviting and relaxing. It truly is a home away from home for us! Every morning we have breakfast on the deck and watch the shrimp boats passing by. We even saw a dolphin following along one morning. I love that the balcony faces the ocean. We get such nice pictures of the sunrise in the mornings. My daughter and I found a Sip and Paint studio on the Boardwalk this year so we took a class. We also got to participate in a turtle release this year at nest #11 (right to the left of the walkway). We took the grandchildren to the Aquarium/Lorikeet exhibit, at Fort Fisher, where you can actually feed the birds. The smiles on the kids' faces were priceless. My husband and I tried a couple (new to us) places to eat that we hadn't tried before: Trolley Stop in Southport, and closer to home, Pop's diner. They actually make homemade burgers (not pre-formed, from frozen)! I added menus from both places to the guest book! Of course we frequented Britt's and Squiggley's a few times. Although I didn't get to eat at Provisions (Southport) this year, I highly recommend going for a nice lunch! Can't wait for next year if you'll have us again! Kindest Regards, Jeanne and Trent Dickeson

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Golly, Jeanne.... Thanks for the review. You are always welcome to stay with us. The Lorikeet exhibit is really nice, isn't it? Next year it will be a butterfly exhibit, and one of the staff said they will rotate those exhibits - Lorikeets this year and Butterflies next, and so on. So glad you got to see the turtle hatching!! We missed one by 20 minutes last year. Best to you & Trent & family. Carol

Had a great time but you probably would not like it (because I do not want you to steel a week I might want in the future) j/k you will not be disappointed. This condo is very spacious and clean. Have a great time.

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Hey, Dave & Laura. So happy to have met you while you were there. Glad you had a great time. Looking forward to being your hosts again. Did you see any of the sea turtle nests?

our 3 month snowbird vaca

We had never been to Carolina Beach but found we made the right decision to try it. It was a rough winter for everyone, but living in NH we found it a pleasant experience in NC. The condo is large and accommodated our visiting children and grandchildren. The view from the porch is spectacular. Close to shopping areas and restaurants. I would recommend this property to couples and/or families.. My only regret is we never visited here in summertime. But who knows what the future will hold.

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Barbara, We are happy you and Richard enjoyed the condo in the winter --- even though it was cooler this year than most. Did you get to the aquarium with the grand-kids? In the spring they open the butterfly exhibit, which has been a big hit with everyone. When you come again, be sure to visit Southport; just a 30 minute ferry-ride away. Regards, Lawrence & Carol Prevatte

Great location!

September 7, 2014

This was our 2nd year at this location. We never lacked for anything to do and could walk to most places within a few minutes. This is easily a home away from home. The views are absolutely perfect anytime of day or night. We can't wait to come back next year!

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Hey, Jeanne! We were delighted to have you back this year. Thanks for the review! ~Carol & Lawrence~

Great location at a great price

June 19, 2014

This condo was perfect for 4 adults and 3 children at the location on Carolina Beach that was far enough from the boardwalk but walking distance to restarants. We were all in the ocean everyday. Not great for body surfing but still fun. Kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of space. Bring yr own beach towels and beach shelter. It was too windy for the umbrellas provided.

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Glad you enjoyed yourself. We try hard to make the unit as enjoyable as possible. Sorry about the wind! You never know when it's going to be balmy or really windy!!

A very nice condo....

July 10, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. We had beautiful views of the ocean and an ample sized porch for viewing. All appliances were in good working order. They even had extra linens in case we didn't bring enough. Carol was wonderful to correspond with and very helpful too. Our condo was very clean when we arrived. Even though there were all young families staying in other condo's in our building, I couldn't hear a thing. The only issue was car parking. It eventually worked out. However, I could see this being an issue with less cooperative people. Thanks for a wonderful place to enjoy Carolina Beach!!!

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Tina. We fell in love with the view, ourselves. Glad you had a good stay. ~carol & Lawrence-

It was wonderful to wake up early in the morning and hear the sound of the surf. Beautiful as the shrimping boats tugged by as we slowly did what we came to do...relax. Very nice.

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Hey, Michael! So glad you had a relaxing time there. We enjoy it too, when we can manage to be there. Did you see any dolphins??? ~Carol & Lawrence~

Size of condo was great! Location was the BEST! ! Amenities was good. One thing that was bothersome--- from time we entered there was gnats! We sprayed them with bug spray!!! , but they were present the entire stay! The booking was simple, directions and accommodations were very good. Even with gnats, I would return!!!

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Glad you had a good stay in spite of the gnats. Fresh fruit let sit out attracts them. A great way to get rid of them is to put some vinegar in a small bowl, add a drop of liquid dishwashing liquid, stir; cover with plastic wrap and poke holes in the wrap. The gnats are attracted to the 'fermenting' scent of the vinegar and drown. Put the fresh fruit into the fridge for a day or set the vinegar close to the fruit. Sounds crazy, but it works for me at home.

The property was wonderful. There was nothing we required that was not available. As stated, the ocean view, sunrise and sunset were truly awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed the area and the condo. The rooms were spacious , beds were great sizes and the beach equipment added a great touch. We are already planning for next year. Lawrence and Carol, thank you mostly kindly for sharing your wonderful vacation home with us. Frederick and Diane Hunter

So glad you liked it as much as we do when we can get there. Give us a call about next year. Regards, Carol & Lawrence

Great 3 Bedroom ON THE BEACH

July 5, 2012

We loved our stay in this great 3 bedroom condo on the beach. The set up was perfect for husband & I who had our own room/balcony - and the kids were on the opposite side of the condo. Carolina Beach was great. The view from the balcony was so relaxing. If we weren't on the beach, or riding bikes, we were sitting on the balcony staring at the ocean. We were within walking distance to all of the action (boardwalk; nightlife; fishing pier). Great family town / great family condo.

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Cari. We are happy you had a good stay! Regads, Lawrence & Carol

we had the most wonderful time here! The place was impeccable, and comfortable!!!! The view was awesome, pool was nice and clean and we can't wait to come back. We had three little kids under 5 and it was just perfect for us!! Close to the boardwalk and lots of restaurants! We could walk everywhere! The best was that one morning we were standing on the deck and looked out and saw dolphins swimming off the coast!!!!! We can't wait to return!!!!!!

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

One of the things we enjoy the most is watching the dolphins. Although not there every day, they are a treat to see! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for being our guests.

June 4-11 rental

June 14, 2011

We had a great time at the condo in Carolina Beach. Easy access to beach and swimming pool. Nice balcony/porch -- very spacious-- with access from living room and master bedroom. Great view of ocean and pool. Nice big table in dining area to accomodate everyone. Nice to have cable tv in all bedrooms and living room. Disappointed that free wi-fi not available. Other than the wi-fi, the condo had everything we needed.

Lawrence  &  Carol Prevatte

Owner's reply:

Glad your time was enjoyable. I have found that the internet service is more difficult to access if you have a number of devices trying to access it (a couple of phones, a computer, and a tablet all trying to access the internet). I will contact our provider and ask about this and also about the ease (or lack of it) in accessing the sign on. Thanks for your comments.
