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.

                                This two bedroom condo is nicely furnished with a view that is absolutely amazing. It has everything needed for a beach get away. My family spent last weekend there with my mother. She requires a wheelchair for long distances and uses a cane inside. This condo is handicapped accessible. The elevator made coming and going easy with my mother in her chair. She was able to move around the condo without difficulty. She did require assistance getting in and out of the shower, otherwise was able to move about independently. The owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Nice and quite and did I mention the view!!

                                The property was well maintained and clean, and the owner was very hospitable and helpful. The elevator and carts available to help with toting luggage was much appreciated. The view from the balcony is lovely, and almost like being beachfront. We hope to return again next summer. We appreciate all the help we received from the owner in finding fun local activities and good places to eat.

                                We stayed at Paradise Towers unit in late April 2012 for 5 nights. The condo was very clean & kitchen well equipped. The ocean view was great and the access to the beach easy. Parking was abundant and ramp/elevator made access easy. Location was close to downtown Carolina Beach with many restaurants available. Would definitely recommend renting this condo from Bob & Lisa.

                                We had such an awesome time on our spring break from college. The beach was great and there was just enough stuff to do a part from going to the beach. The condo was great for us to relax and hangout on the balcony which we did many nights, afternoons, and mornings. Bob was so helpful and very personable throughout the whole renting process. We definitely want to come back to Carolina Beach and hopefully rent from this same owner. We came to the beach to relax and get away from school work and the chaos that comes with it and we had such a great time the week we spent there.

                                My wife and I spent a week of vacation here. The view was great. It is as close to oceanfront that you can get to without being ocean front. My in-laws came down on Monday and stayed for over 4 days and they enjoyed it as much as we did. There was plenty of room for us all and the weather was great the entire week. We could not have asked for better accomodations for the cost. Bob was a great host and offered some recommendations while we were here. The Boardwalk and lake are within walking distance and we took advantage of this. We are looking forward to trying to return in the fall.

I highly recommend this unit!!! Thanks Bob for all your help!!!!

                                There was a group of 4 of us that visited Carolina Beach this past weekend for Labor Day and we stayed here and the place was fantastic! Literally a minute walk from the beach and had spectacular views. However if you're not the beach type the on-site pool gives you the opportunity to get in the water without having to deal with the salt and sand. The location is also just a very short drive from downtown where there are many things to do. The owner was great to work with, very flexible, & friendly. Overall it was a fantastic place to stay and I would highly recommend it!

                              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!
