Property description

Ideal for families and extended families who want to spend time at the beach, but still have other activities and opportunities nearby. The beach is 70 steps away and can be seen from the deck so there are no roads to cross or distances to carry chairs, umbrellas, etc.

The Community of Carolina Beach offers outdoor movies and concerts in the summer, fireworks every Thursday night, a farmers market on Saturdays, lots of restaurants, and other activities.

The Carolina Beach State Park offers 6 miles of hiking trails, nature walks, picnic area by the waterway, and boat ramp.

Wilmington, the largest city in Southeastern NC is about 20 minutes away.

The house can accommodate a total of 14 people with 5 bedrooms each having its own full bath. The bedrooms can sleep 12 people with beds including 2 Queens, 1 AMAZING KING, and 2 Full/Twin bunk beds (each sleeping 3). There is also a Queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room and an extra half bath on the main floor. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a full laundry room. The living/dining area is an open design and leads to the deck which is also accessible from the master bedroom on the first floor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am a composer and professor of music in Williamstown, MA. I live in a beautiful area, the Berkshire Mountains, but there is nothing like the beach, the sound of the ocean, the warm temperatures of NC! This is why after many months of searching I found the perfect getaway!

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
I taught at UNCW for 7 years before moving to Massachusetts and still have many friends and colleagues in the Wilmington area. I may eventually retire there and this is why I chose to buy a vacation home in Carolina Beach which I rent out when I am not using it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located within steps of the beach-no roads to cross. It is what is called second row, but it is closer to the beach than a lot of houses that call themselves beach front and it has great ocean views from the deck and living and even from the front upstairs bedrooms. The property is located in Carolina Beach so is close to activities, restaurants, pier, bar on the beach, etc. It is 20-30 minutes from Wilmington which, the largest city in Southeastern NC.
