Property description

Located at the north end of Pleasure Island, Surfsound is adjacent to miles and miles of undeveloped shoreline and offers breathtaking views of the ocean from the deck off the living room, the living room window, kitchen window, and guest bedroom window. Every window has an ocean view! We are so close to the water you’ll feel like you’re on the deck of a ship. Imagine the sound of surf lulling you to sleep at night.

Lighthouse-themed master bedroom features queen size bed, 23' flat-screen color TV with expanded cable and remote control, private bath with oversized walk-in shower with hand-held shower head, walk-in closet and balcony with lounge chairs looking west toward the intercoastal waterway.

The fish theme guest bedroom has twin beds and large closet, 15' color TV with DVD player (no cable). Your children will feel like they're sleeping in an aquarium!

Living room has queen-size sleeper sofa and leather recliner, 32' flat screen color TV with expanded cable and ROKU, remote controls, DVD player, VCR, CD player/am/fm radio.

The guest bath off the hall features a tub/shower with hand-held shower head and stack washer/dryer, iron and board, and hair dryer. Central air, dishwasher, ceramic-top stove, microwave, side-by-side full-size refrigerator, disposal, all kitchen utensils, dishes and small appliances including a 2 coffeemakers (12-cup and Keurig single-cup), 4-slice toaster, toaster oven, Foreman grill, mixer, food processor and blender. Filtered water for drinking and cooking.

New carpeting in both bedrooms and new living room drapes in 2014.

No booking fees. Sheets, bath towels, blankets, and pillows are included at no extra cost. (A savings of more than $100.) Everything you need for your beach vacation is here including beach towels, umbrella and chairs, boogie boards, beach toys and a large selection of paperbacks, board games and puzzles, dining recommendations and guide books.

If there should be a mandatory evacuation order during your stay, you will receive a credit toward a future rental which is based on the nights you occupied the premises. (We know how hard people work and how special vacations are and we want to do the right thing.)

Just pack your toothbrush, swim suit and a smile! You will love it here . . . we do!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Janet and Loid Atkinson live in Portage, Wisconsin. He owned a real estate business; she was a project management consultant for a large midwest insurance company. They currently divide their time between Portage and Carolina Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
As a realtor, Loid knows the value of location. When buying a place to be near their oldest son and his family, he did not hesitate a second when he saw the views from Surfsound. The friendliness of the area and great restaurants and family-oriented activities were a bonus. http://www.obx360.com/misc/atkinson/360vt.html

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love watching the activity at the pier and on the beach. We often see dolphins. And people are so friendly here. We go off-season because it seems like we have the whole beach to ourselves! Everything is in place but the crowds and traffic.
