Lovely view & comfortable stay
Lovely view & comfortable stay
We have been going to Carolina Beach for many years, and this is the first time that we didn't cut our vacation short. The condo is very comfortable and clean, modern and kitchen improvement is commendable. It really shows how the owners love their condo because it's almost as comfortable as home. The owners are very accommodating and caring, they really go out of their way to lend a hand to make sure that their guests enjoy their vacation. Views are excellent. Thanks again for a lovely stay, can't wait to have another chance to get a break from work and rent this condo again.

We arrived at the condo on Saturday afternoon. Checking in was a breeze as the complex has an elevator as well as luggage carts. The complex is oceanfront and convenient to everything at Carolina Beach, also an easy drive to Wilmington as well as the other beaches in the area. The condo was clean and had everything you would need. The kitchen is updated, and well stocked. The view is great, with the balcony as well as the upper deck to use. We watched the sunrise while drinking coffee, how relaxing. The owner was attentive, keeping in touch with us before we arrived and checking with us after we left to make sure we had a good time.

Great time with Extended Family! Would Go Back
Great time with Extended Family! Would Go Back
We had a great time in your condo with our family (my family and my brother and his family and our Mom - one 5 year old and 2 three year olds). There was enough room for all of us and the condo was just as it was described. There were a few small things that needed fixing like the toilet fixtures but this is to be expected with a rental (nothing that I would have called maintenance for- just wanted you to know). Overall beautifully decorated and clean. The elevator and the carts and carriages to bring up groceries and luggage was a MAJOR PLUS! Very close to the beach which was wide and fairly quiet considering there is public access near by. It is worth noting that the surf here was extremely rough and there is a pretty good undertow. The adults loved the waves but something to keep in mind if you are coming with kids. Found it was better when the tide was going out and our kids did fine and had a blast in the shallow water. Just worth mentioning for those who want calmer waters. The pool was maintained and looked like the photos. As others mentioned the roof deck was awesome for the fireworks. The big plus for us was the proximity to the carnival and the boardwalk. Far enough away that the noise didn't bother you, but just a 5 minute walk (we brought a wagon to pull the kids in - best move we did by far!). The carnival had a lot of rides for young children and teens too. The boardwalk also had several bars that were great - we really enjoyed the one with the roof deck (name has slipped my mind now). There are also ice cream places and restaurants on the main road within walking distance. You should know that there is no grilling on the property but the food lion is really close by and the kitchen has most everything you will need (we brought a crock pot which helped too). Plus with all of the options for dining near by you are fine. We have stayed in Ocean Isle, Atlantic Beach and Topsail and all agreed that considering the ages of our children this was the best location yet and we would definitely come back again!

Manager response: We appreciate this guest's detailed review and comments. We are always looking to maintain our condo to the highest standards possible and make improvements. After the last two "Very Good" but not "Excellent" overall ratings, I made a trip to the condo to see where we may be coming up short. After 14 consecutive weeks of rental activity May - September, everything looked great even to my critical eye. Only a couple of minor maintenance items that few would likely notice (that are now repaired); housekeeping has done a fantastic job as the condo was very clean. The cabinets were a little disorganized, to be expected. Just to note, the comments regarding the surf conditions (which do vary) and the no grilling (local fire ordinance for condo bldgs) are not specific to our property. As for improvements in 2014, we have plans to do a major renovation to the rooftop deck space to further make the condo unit among the best in Carolina Beach. Completion sometime in the spring and pictures promptly to follow. We encourage all potential guests to ask as many questions as needed to be sure our property is a perfect fit for your next Carolina Beach vacation.
Best Beach View!
Best Beach View!
After several years of staying up and down the coasts of North and South Carolina, this condo has had the best beach view! That had to be our favorite part of the condo--the beach location was wonderful! Condo is as photographed on VRBO. The description of the condo is accurate. Condo was pretty clean, lots of sand, but you are at the beach and the sand and salt take its toll. Well maintained, parking was monitored, grounds of the condo we kept nice, there was always someone cleaning, mowing, blowing off the sand on the decks and parking lot... We did not use the pool, but looked as pictured on VRBO. We were looking for something a little less crowded than North Myrtle and Carolina Beach was just that. Very family oriented beach, lots of extended families vacationing here. Beach was clean. Surf was rough but my kids loved it. Surfing lessons were a must--worth every penny for my 13 year old!! Lots of places to eat within walking distance--that was very nice not to have to get in the car every time you went to dinner. I would have liked to have been a more blocks away from the Boardwalk, but all in all the location is not bad. Britts donuts are a must--yummy. Havana's was a nice place to eat. Pop's Diner--good burgers. Squigley's has good ice cream. Jack Mackerel's in Kure beach had pretty good food as did The Deck House. Fort Fisher was neat and the Battleship in Wilmington is a must see. NIce place for families with kids!

Manager response: We certainly appreciate the detailed review by this guest. We make every effort to be a Five Star property at Carolina Beach; almost all of our guests agree and we would very much have liked this guest to have felt the same way. From the review it seems that our housekeeping was not up to standards in her opinion, as well as the location. I checked with our housekeeping manager and no contact was made by this guest to rectify any issues. The manager also indicated that we have not had even one complaint about housekeeping in the system within the last five years. I have detailed our housekeeping quality control plan within a review in August 2012 - please know that we make every effort to provide a neat and clean property for your comfort and enjoyment, but it is impossible to do anything about something overlooked well after the fact. Regarding location: this is the first less than positive comment about location we have ever received. Carolina Surf has one of the premier locations in all of Carolina Beach; being an easy walking distance to the Boardwalk, downtown area, & Carolina Beach Lake Park, while being situated on a quiet, one way street (off the main road). You can view the summer fireworks perfectly from the comfort of you own private balcony or rooftop deck! The Overview clearly described the condo being one block from the Boardwalk. Perhaps this guest was looking for something less centrally located and should have chosen a different location that better suited her particular needs. As with any potential guest, we know how important it is to make the best choice for your next vacation accommodations - please ask as many questions as needed to make sure our property is the perfect fit for you.
Upon arrival at Carolina Surf, we were very pleased to see that the photos hadn't done the condo justice. The unit was very clean and well laid out. The bedrooms were roomy and beds comfortable. We loved the balcony with its ocean views and even the view of the ocean from the living area was amazing. We could even see the wreckage of the General Beauregard at low tide from the balcony. Awesome! The location was great; a short walkway to the ocean, Britt's donuts or Squiggley's Ice Cream. The Deck House restaurant was very close, Michaiels was just up the road and the Boardwalk was a stones throw away. The condo was well maintained with all kitchen amenities one could need. We loved the coffee maker with its stronger coffee button. The elevator was a life saver because I always pack too much! The owner was helpful with any and all questions, letting us know what to expect weather wise in September and quick to email us information we would need for a great stay. We have been vacationing at Carolina and Kure Beaches for the past 12 or 13 years and this was one of the best vacations we have ever had. I hope to return next year, same time, and I would definitely give this condo and our experience this week a great recommendation to anyone planning to visit Carolina Beach. Kathy L.

Beautiful and Relaxing!
Beautiful and Relaxing!
This condo was beautifully decorated and has excellent views! The negative things were that the curtains were falling down and the fixtures were falling down or not screwed in tightly. We stayed here a few years ago and it was the same thing. Overall, it just needed a thorough cleaning by the rental company and it would be perfect!

Manager response: We greatly appreciate this guest returning for a repeat stay. It would seem logical that any shortcomings of our condo that this guest noticed the first stay must not have been serious enough to choose to go elsewhere this year. I checked with our property manager regarding this guest and no calls were made to either housekeeping or to maintenance to address any problems during this stay. It is possible that during a busy summer season that bath fixtures, curtain rods, etc. can become loosened from use (and abuse) by previous guests and may not be noticed by our cleaning team. Any maintenance items such as this can be quickly resolved by calling for maintenance - usually within the same day. Regarding cleaning: We are very particular about the cleanliness of our condo and practically all comments are usually to the contrary of this guest's opinion. We have a thorough spring cleaning every year, and this past spring had all of the carpet and tile profesionally cleaned. The upholstery is slip-covered and washed as well each spring. Shower liners are cleaned or replaced during the summer when needed and bed coverings are also washed as needed. Furnace filters are replaced monthly. The living area also received a fresh coat of paint this year. Our cleaner we use during the summer season is the most experienced and thorough cleaner among the housekeeping team, to meet our high standards. In addition for higher quality standards in the summer, an inspector goes in after each cleaning, before the next arrival, to check for completeness. Every third week or so the housekeeping manager checks behind the inspector to look for things that need attention. We believe that effort is made to assure our guests that the condo is in excellent condition upon arrival, and any housekeeping or maintenance issues that may have been missed will be quickly rectified - if the guest will simply contact us. As we will do for any potential guest, if you have specific needs or concerns for your next beach vacation please just ask and we will help assure this property is the perfect fit for you.
We absolutely loved our stay at your condo. We always use VRBO.com to find our beach rental each year. We of course always want ocean front, a pool and such but one of the first things I look for is how the condo is decorated. You all have such great taste. It is funny to me how outdated so many of the condos are these days. I want to feel like I am at a retreat and you make it feel that way. We loved the private sun deck on top where we watched the fireworks and had the perfect view. It was the pefect location to walk to the boardwalk, Brits donut shop, the arcade/fair, Pop's Diner, etc. Thanks so much for making our stay wonderful!

3-generation family, from Mid-Missouri, vacation at Carolina Beach
Our family enjoyed our stay very much. It was everything that we were expecting. The location is perfect for small children (our grandchildren), our 30-something children and my wife & I. The descriptions of the property were right on; early mornings were spent on the outdoor deck, then to the beach until lunch, back to the beach or pool in the afternoon & then enjoyed cocktails before supper on the deck. The kitchen allowed us the option of staying in if we didn't feel like going out. We will definitely consider this property in the future.

The condo is spacious with numerous upgrades. The balcony offers great views of the ocean and the rooftop deck is a nice option when you don't feel like lugging your gear to the beach. Walking distance to the boardwalk, great views of the fireworks, and convenient to several nice food options (including Britt's doughnuts). I highly recommend this condo for your next trip to Carolina Beach.

A great week
A great week
This property is just beautiful. The view of the ocean is fabulous and the sunset looking west from the rooftop deck is terrific. It large enough that you don't feel on top of other members of your family. It is bright and airy. The kitchen is well appointed if you want to cook in. We at the Shuckin' Shack--a great local bar with delicious seafood. Pleasure Island Rentals was great to deal with for bike rentals. We would absolutely recommend this to our friends and family.

Year Purchased: 2008
About: My wife and I live in Raleigh NC and are lifelong North Carolina residents. We have two children and we love to go to the beach!
Why Carolina Beach:
We purchased this condo in Carolina Beach because we both have been going to CB all of our lives. The beachfront is as nice as any in NC, but CB offers the best value as compared to other beach communities in NC. The proximity to Wilmington is very nice, which offers more shopping, dining, entertainment, etc. than most beach areas. It is also easy to get to with I 40 almost all the way and the Wilmington International airport.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy the proximity to the lake for biking and to the boardwalk area. The unit has an open floor plan which is great, and the balcony and rooftop deck are the best on the beach. We also enjoy the king bed since we do not have one at home!
