Carolina Beach cottage description
***Great rates available for the off season! Contact us today!***
Updated beach property in the middle of it all! Once you park your car, there is no reason to drive again until you're going home! We are located an easy 5 minutes walking distance from the boardwalk and even closer to a number of excellent restaurants.
Check out the map on this listing. The beach, fishing, shopping, restaurants, bars, the boardwalk & amusement rides are all a stone's throw away.
The property has 2 bedrooms, with a full bed in each room, and 2 full baths.
It was updated in 2009 and has new beds, new flooring, new paint, a fully equipped kitchen and updated baths.
We have another unit available at the same address which also has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. This unit, however, has 2 queen beds in one bedroom and 1 queen in the second bedroom. This unit has a larger living area and dining area than the first.
You must provide your own linens and beach equipment. We will be happy to provide the contact information for a local linen service or you can bring your own.

- Carolina Beach is a great place to vacation and The Little Blue Pelican is located right in the center of it all. Once you arrive, you can park your car and put away your keys until your departure. Visit Kate's Pancake House for a great breakfast and Harbor Master's for dinner. Walk to both of these restaurants, along with many others for a great meal. Enjoy the nightlife? No need to call a cab -- there are a handful of great bars within a 5 minute walk of our property. If fishing is your thing, this is the location for you. We are located directly between the Yacht Basin and the beach access. The beach access is an easy 500 feet away from your front door! Carolina Beach is a family friendly vacation destination. You and your little ones can easily walk to the amusement park for an evening of fun, complete with fireworks! History buffs will enjoy the historical Fort Fisher while beach bums will be amazed at the beautiful, unobstructed coastline it offers -- just a 5 minute drive! While you are there, check out the Fort Fisher Aquarium for a great educational experience for adults and children alike.

I stayed at the Little Blue Pelican with my niece and her two children, ages 5 and 8. I was happy to see how close we were to the beach and boardwalk, and the convenience store across the street was.....well, convenient. The single air conditioner in the living area was noisy, but enough to cool the bedrooms, too, which also had ceiling fans. We were able to watch the Thursday night fireworks from the porch. Also, it's just across the main street from the 'party' boats that offer evening cruises on the river, which we did, and the kids had a blast! The carnival was just a couple blocks away and the kids were thrilled with it! We were able to walk to restaurants for all meals. The outside hose came in handy for rinsing off after the beach. Only a couple problems -- one was the parking. There are only 2 spaces in the front and the people renting Unit B has already filled them, so my niece and I had to park our cars behind the house. It rained the day after we arrived, and my niece waded through six inches of so of water to get something out of her car. And we had to be careful where we stepped on the grass, as someone had not picked up their dog's poo -- the 5 year old unfortunately stepped in some. Overall, a good experience, and my niece and I both agreed that we would return to the Little Blue Pelican again.

Good price, great location
Good price, great location
My husband, 20 month old son, and I stayed here for a few nights. It is nothing fancy, bare essentials, but enough to get by and overall clean PROS - It is less than a mile from most places (Britts Donuts on the boardwalk, Squiggleys, Ida Thai, Food Lion) so it is very convenient. Beach access is super close so if you forget something it isn't a big deal to walk back and get it. There is a convenience store and Rita's across the street. They do not require a weekly rental during the summer, which was the biggest plus for us. CONS - The cabinets under the kitchen sink are not finished, so you open the doors to find concrete floor and the wall. This was not very attractive to me. The beds were not comfortable and one was extremely noisy. We left the night before we were supposed to leave just so didn't have to sleep on the bed again. The deck could be redone, at least repainted and a few boards replaced. Overall it was acceptable and for the price and location we would consider staying again.

Loved being able to walk to shops, visit with the pelicans and walk to the beach. We had a wonderful time. My in-laws went with us and our 15 year old son also. There was something for everyone!!! The house is cute and comfy.

"We really enjoyed that house. It is just a perfect location; the ad was correct- we parked the car and didn't use it again until we were ready to leave. Even my extremely pregnant wife was able to walk to everything we did!"

Little Blue Pelican review
Little Blue Pelican review
My friends and I recently rented the Little Blue Pelican, unit A for memorial day weekend. The house is older, but the bathrooms have been re-done and the house is in overall good condition. The location was perfect as we were so close to the beach and never had to get in the car to go anywhere! Absolutely everything is in walking distance to this home! The home is priced very reasonably for what you get and I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a getaway. We hope to book this home again soon!!
