Property description

Millers Whimsy is an ideal private home right on the beach. Enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, full libary of videos, board games and books. The best parts of Carolina beach are within blocks of this home.
House has separate sitting rooms, porch, deck and garage, this will allow everyone to have some privacy even on rainy days. Enjoy the garden tub in the front bathroom. This house is a family home and not just a sterile hotel suite.
You are three blocks from the marina where you can enjoy the party boat cruise or a day out on a charter fishing boat. In 5 blocks you can go to the boardwalk and enjoy the rides, free concerts, an outdoor movie once a week, bars and restaurants. Farther down the beach is the NC Aquarium, historic Fort Fisher, Civil War Musuem, and ferry to Southport & Brunswick Cty beaches. Head a few miles inland for all that historic Wilmington has to offer, including the battleship USS North Carolina.
We invite you to come home to Carolina Beach and 'Millers Whimsy'.
