Carolina Beach condo description

**Oceanfront, Oceanfront, Oceanfront**

If you are looking to relax, you've landed in the right place. You'll love relaxing in this like new two bedroom two bath condo. After a friend of mine got married at Kure Beach I started visiting Carolina Beach and renting other folks condos. I fell in love with the beach and I've taken all my likes from the other condos and put them into this space. From the granite countertops to replacing the bathroom vanitys and installing all new appliances, you'll love the enjoyment you and your family or friends will be able to enjoy.

The condo has a HUGE balcony facing the ocean with an unobstructed view of the beautiful water. When the waves are right, you'll be able to see surfers and dolphins in the water. During the later 2012 summer season the waves were huge and I saw 20-25 surfers a day - makes for a great beach feel. You also have a private walk out to a beautiful sandy beach. It is situated between two life guard stands. This is awesome for two reasons: there will be people on either side of you on the beach, but the space in front of the boardwalk in front of the condo is available and normally free for you to relax in the chairs that are provided. In the storage unit below there are beach chairs and toys for your enjoyment. You can also lock your own personal items in the storage unit as well. No lifting everything for the beach up and down the stairs everyday. After you come off of the beach you can shower off in the outdoor shower. There is even a foot shower to make sure you get in all the nooks and cranies!

From a Keurig coffee maker, to board games and a DVD library, to flat screen tvs in every room, you'll love what this condo has in store for your vacation!

The master bedroom has a comfy queen size bed with ceiling fan and attached private bath and private balcony with peek-a-boo views of the canal. The guest bedroom has a full size bunk bed, which has a twin on top, full size in the middle and a twin trundle underneath...and there is an available twin size fold out bed too!

The kitchen is magnificent with granite countertops and everything you need to cook a home cooked meal. Stainless Steel appliances with flat top range will make you think you are staying in a five star resort. The dining room sits four, but you can pull up the three barstools to add more people. The living room is perfect to watch a movie after the sun goes down. It features a sectional sofa with a chaise lounge, Board Games, DVD library, comfy chair with ottoman and a view to die for!

The condo is located less than a block away from a mini mart just in case you forgot anything or if you run out of your favorite beverage. In December of 2013 they redid the mini-mart and added on a surf shop too. A ten minute walk will get you to the famous Carolina Beach Boardwalk. Filled with great restaurants, nightlife, beachy stores and the world famous Britt's Doughnuts (a must have, but cash only please) you are in the best part of Carolina Beach. A block behind the condo is the canal. It's an amazing place to walk around with your family, friends and pets. There are also public areas to sit and watch the boats (both big and small) go by.

On the far North End is the North End Pier which you can see from the condo. There is amazing fishing and the location of 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 or you can walk down North Carolina Beach Avenue with your dog and go out on the beach and play all day.

At the South End of Carolina Beach is Ft. Fisher, it's an amazing piece of history that is worth seeing during your visit. It is also home to an amazing acquarium.

              Location

              Walking distance to the beach, old timey boardwalk, North End Pier and several of the shops around the Island. You have to try out Britts Doughnuts (only available during the summer season). I also suggest the drive to the South End of the island to enjoy Historic Fort Fisher, they have some great places to take photos and there is a ferry that will take you over to Southport where boutique shopping abounds.

               

              Owner info

              About the owner: I am so excited to share with you my experience of buying a home away from home. As a high end apartment manager located in Raleigh, NC, I've always had the pleasure of living on-site. With that thought process in mind, I turned my home purchase towards the beach so that my friends and I could have a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Here you'll find our adventures and we hope that you will add your own!

              Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
              A few summers ago, my college roommate got married to his sweetheart. While I was here, the memories of my childhood visits to Carolina Beach started to flow. I had some money saved up and decided that I should look at some real estate. It took me over a year to find the perfect place. I bought a condo and completely turned into my little piece of heaven. From new floors to new doors, I've personally put a lot of sweat equity into making this place mine! That a few good friends, paid with beer and seafood and the Pirate Shack is what you see today. I hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and family do! Growing up vacationing at Carolina Beach every year was always so much fun. I remember looking back we got to go for an ENTIRE week to Carolina Beach. We always stayed at The Parker motel on the North End, but had to stay on the second row without a pool so we could afford the entire week. Every summer we packed up my fathers full size 1970's truck, put the camper on top and headed to Carolina Beach. My dad had affixed a bed on the back and with the small shell camper, my sister and I were in for a ride of a lifetime. We always made signs to put int he back window to tell people where we were going. My favorite was always drawing a clown and making it colorful - oh how our childhood makes us. Never in a million years would I have thought I could afford something at the beach and especially not oceanfront. I'm humbled that I get to dream big and enjoy the memories from days gone by. I hope you and your family will enjoy the memories you make - they truly last a lifetime!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              I personally love being able to wake up, open the master bedroom door and see the ocean. There is nothing better than looking into eternity! No matter whether it's cold or hot, I love it here. There is a reason it's call Paradise Island and I fully understand it! I also enjoy the local flare. From the great restaurants like The Deck House to Granny's Country Kitchen you just can't beat this laid back island. In the winter, you should check out the Island of Lights. The locals really get into this and it's amazing to see the ocean in the winter with all the lights and Christmas Flare at the Boardwalk!
