The Paradise Tower condominium is a 6-floor, 37-unit structure with its pool located between it and the beach. (Pool is open at least May 01 - September 30) The beach access runs right next to the pool, getting you on the sand within one minute. You are looking at a 2-Br unit on the 4th floor (called the '3rd floor) in a building with a secure lobby, an elevator and a wheelchair-accessible ramp. This is essentially a 'beach front' accommodation as the unit is high enough to look over a smaller structure between us and the beach. The spacious balcony faces the beach (providing an excellent view) and has furniture to accommodate eating outdoors while listening to the wonderful sounds of the surf. There are tall stools to look over the railing to view the beach. (See pics.)

There is option to receive returnable deposits at departure time, including the usual cleaning fee. There are NO hidden fees. Our unit has capacity of 7 by one person sleeping on a queen sofa-bed.

The kitchen is very well equipped with fine appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, ice-maker, blender and toaster oven. There is a full-sized washer/dryer within the unit itself. Cable TV and a DVD player are included. The MBr has a king bed and the second bedroom has both single bunks along with a queen. The LR has a queen sofa-bed. There are two full bathrooms.

There are plenty of parking spaces on the premises, some under-cover. We are located just a couple blocks to the south of the 'boardwalk' area where our beach is especially nice.

Located close to waterways, golf courses, historic Wilmington (North Carolina) and Cape Fear. The Island has two boat launch ramps and a State park.

We protect the quality of the environment by NOT allowing pets nor smoking indoors. We can assist you with rental of infant furniture, towels, and linens, if needed.

Our rental cycle is Saturday to Saturday. We encourage a minimum weekly stay during prime season; if a summer part-week is negotiated, it should either begin or end on a Saturday. Other periods can be rented for three days or more. Off-season (after Labor Day through Memorial Day) rates are available; please call or email.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: This owner enjoys the fine fishing opportunities the area often provides.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
I chose the Wilmington/ Carolina Beach area for my residence in 2002 and personally check vacationing tenants in and out. The area has mild winters and there is wonderful beach weather in the spring and autumn. Summers, of course, can get toasty hot to provide many days to want to be on the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is technically 'second row' but essentially offers beach-front view when on the 3rd floor. The pool is right at the beach (across the street) and next to the beach access. There is plenty of parking, including spaces under the building. You can enjoy listening to the surf while eating on the balcony. There is an elevator up to our unit, inside a masonry building so you need not worry about the risks of being in an all-wooden structure. All 16 of our pictures are 'honest' inasmuch as photos are taken from OUR balcony!
