About the area

Carolina Beach sits on the north end of "PLEASURE ISLAND," 15 min. from Wilmington. We are not Myrtle Beach or Florida. We are a sleepy little fishing/boating town with which you will fall in love, as we have. Restaurants and shopping can be found within walking or biking distance. Favorites are Uncle Vinny's, R&G Barbeque, Ocean Grill (with pier dining at theTiki Bar), Surf House, Jack Mackerel's, Michael's, Pop's Diner and many more! There is everything from Thai & Sushi to Steak & Seafood. All kinds of water sports activities abound here. Bike, kayak,and paddle boat rentals are available right there in town. Go to the PLEASUREISLANDNC site for events and attractions thru the year. Live theater is found in Wilmington; THALIAN HALL is a favorite.Tregumbo Zoo (votedthe nation's best run private zoo) a few miles away; sightseeing tours via horse-drawn carriage, trolley, or boat in Wilmington. Must see - USS North Carolina! N.C. Aquarium andt Ft. Fisher are 5 miles away. Catch the ferry to SOUTHPORT for a full day of antiques and ice creams. Also visit the CHRISTMAS HOUSE and have lunch/dinner at the PROVISION COMPANY (over the water) while there. Look for Sea Turtle Nests on the beach from May through October.

Good location, great folks to work with, the condo was clean very roomy well equipped we had 4 adults 2 granddaughters 3 &18 mo, great roomy deck with great view of beach great place to eat a meal which we did several times. Good parking 3 to 4 blocks from boardwalk we enjoy having our bicycles with us. We had rain some which drove us to watch more TV the living room was good the TV 's in bedrooms was lacking, but the price was good for what we got. Already talking about plans for 2017. We stayed 5 nights during Memorial Day weekend. Good relaxing few days. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your place.

Owner's reply: So happy you had a good time, Scott. Hope to see you again!

“Our third stay at your Condo - still awesome”

Reviewed 6 Sep 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

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.

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?

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.

“Great location!”

Reviewed 7 Sep 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!

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”

Reviewed 19 Jun 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.

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!!

The apartment was completely as promised, very convenient and comfortable. The beach views from the living room and porch are extraordinary.

“Comfy”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2013

Everything was just perfect for our needs. Plenty of space, easy access to the beach and the Wilmington area. Even though the weather did not cooperate we made the best of it. The one day the sun did shine the views were spectacular. Would definitly stay here again.

“A very nice condo....”

Reviewed 10 Jul 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!!!

9/2011 Thank you. We had the best time! This was my birthday present from my son & his girlfriend What a view! Ocean was great; so was the pool. Unit clean and felt like home. Had a blast. We'll be back. Andrea, Youngstown OH

Six of us came in early September and had a blast! It was just us girls! Plan to come again next year.

We love coming here in August every year! So many thngs to do in the area. We like visiting Southport -- the ferry ride is fun for us and the kids. The Christmas Shop is one of the favorites. (Hyattsville, MD)
