Property description

Experience a relaxing vacation with captivating scenery from this "home away from home" 2nd floor oceanfront dream at Carolina Beach! Delight in leisure activities on the wide sandy beach or unwind with a good book on the oceanfront, private covered deck while the rhythmic sounds of the ocean create a calming and restive atmosphere.

Our oceanfront beach home is named 'Beachfront ELM'. It is fully equipped for your comfort, relaxation, and possesses everything for a wonderful family vacation or a romantic getaway. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 private covered decks, and a living/dining room with direct, unobstructed views of the ocean. Keyless entry eliminates having to keep up with keys.

Beds consist of 1 queen, 2 twins, and a queen sleeper/sofa. Maximum occupancy is 6. There is assigned parking for maximum of 2 vehicles. For your convenience, complimentary high speed wired/wireless internet connection is provided.

Carolina Beach, which is part of Pleasure Island along with Kure Beach and Fort Fisher, offers a number of excellent restaurants, specialty retail shops, drug stores, a very nice full service grocery, beach rentals (bikes, linens, etc.), ice cream parlors, charter cruises, the North Carolina Aquarium, and numerous sporting activities for the entire family. Enjoy fireworks every Thursday night at the boardwalk during the Summer! Also, enjoy Beach Bingo at the boardwalk!

On the far North End is the North End Pier which can be seen from the our home. There is amazing fishing there and the location of and the start of Freedom Park, one of the only areas in North Carolina where you can drive on the beach. It's an awesome place to drive out and watch the sunset on the far end of the beach.

The Lake on the island offers a paved walking trail, playground, paddle boats, and kayaking. Several excellent golf courses are located within minutes from the beach. Enjoy FREE movies at the lake every Sunday night on a large outdoor screen from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend. Bring your chair, food, and beverages and experience a great evening under the stars while watching cinema.

Give Pleasure Island Rentals a try--they will deliver chairs and umbrellas to any spot on the beach you choose. Definitely saves you time and effort. They also pick them up so it's great and convenient. Worth EVERY penny. Very affordable!

Our oceanfront home is just minutes away from the port city of Wilmington where you will find shopping, restaurants, and the historic downtown district filled with interesting sites and experiences. Wilmington is the home of the North Carolina Azalea Festival held in April featuring live musical and theater performances, garden and historic home tours, outdoor activities, food, and crafts. Other points of interest in Wilmington are the USS North Carolina Battleship and Museum. Wilmington and surrounding areas/beaches have also become a hot spot for Hollywood Film Directors for film making locations and tv show locations. "Under the Dome" is the most recent tv show using the areas such as Fort Fisher as a location. You never know what Hollywood stars you will cross paths with. I have run into a few. Some refer to the area now as "Wilmywood". Tour the EUE/Screen Gems Studios to get an insider's look at the largest studio complex east of California and to experience the rich history of films and television shows produced at the facility over the last three decades.

Cars or bicycles may be taken onto the ferry that travels from Fort Fisher to Southport, which are both great places to visit. Come and experience for yourself why so many people return to Carolina Beach for a restful, undisturbed getaway from the usual daily demands.

We have enjoyed our piece of heaven since 2000 and are committed to making your stay at our home positive and unforgettable! We hope you get to experience it for yourself!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: This is our piece of heaven, and we want to share it with others. Hope you get to enjoy it soon!

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
Carolina Beach is a quaint town with small town amenities. The fun and activities are endless on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This special place allows my husband and I relaxation and peace in a family oriented environment. I often tell him that his brain turns to jello when we cross the bridge onto the island. He agrees! (smile). We love the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, smelling the ocean air while walking on the beach...sipping a morning cup of coffee and watching the sun rise over the big Atlantic Ocean!! Doesn't get any better than this!!
