Carolina Beach condo description
Driftwood Villas is located in the heart of Carolina Beach. The ocean views from the living room and balcony are excellent. We are located right next to Kate's Pancakes and Squigley's Ice Cream. Carolina Beach Lake is one block from the condo. The lake has a nice playground for children, a walking/jogging/biking area as well as paddle boats. Every Sunday there is a movie that is shown at the lake. On Thursdays you can see the fireworks from our balcony!
The beach access is just two short blocks away. We are so close to restaurants, shopping and the boardwalk you really hardly ever need to get in your car. You can see the ocean and the waves from the balcony! You can also see the ocean from the living room. We really do have great ocean views!! We promise!
The condo has been totally renovated and is a very comfortable place to stay. Nice furniture, new queen- sized bed and pull out queen -sized sleeper sofa. 42 HDTV/DVD in living room with expanded cable. The bedroom also has a 19 inch HDTV/DVD combo. Free Wi-Fi!! We know you will love staying at our condo as much as we do!!

My husband and I and our 5 month old son stayed here for a four night vacation. It was fantastic! The condo was very clean and well appointed unlike some rentals were you have to bring the kitchen sink to enjoy your stay. The closet downstairs with the beach supplies was an added bonus for us, one less thing to pack. The bed was comfortable and the sofa bed was good too. The beach access was really close and easy to get to but we only went there once. The following two days we went up to Freeman Park and drove onto the beach. That was heaven for us. Much easier to enjoy the beach that way with a 5 month old. Liz was a pleasure to deal with and we would rent from her again! Oh and while you are there make sure you take the short walk down to Squigleys and get Squigled. Just maybe not every single night you are there:)

What a great place for a weekend getaway! We were delighted to find that the condo was so clean and well-maintained in addition to being beautifully furnished. The owner's attention to detail and pride in their beach home is evident throughout--even the chairs, bicycle and beach toys in the storage closet are neatly organized and in good condition. The DVD movies and paperback book collection were an added bonus. There is a great ocean view from the balcony and public access to the beach (with public restrooms) is just a short walk away. One of the best things about this property is its proximity to everything. We were able to park our car when we arrived and walk everywhere we wanted to go. We enjoyed dining at the Deck House and Havana's and wandering around the shops at the boardwalk. The lake is also within easy walking distance and is a great place to take a pedal boat ride or enjoy a picnic lunch. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again soon! Thank you Liz for your prompt response to all my emails.

Owner response: Thank you so much, Lisa, for your wonderful review. Joe and I really do take pride in the condo and want it to be as special for everyone as it is for us! Thanks again and please keep us in mind for future vacations!
We loved this place!

Perfect condo for our weekend trip! Beautifully updated, all new furniture, carpet, appliances. Just like the pictures. Very clean! We loved the location...short walk to the lake and the beach...and our favorite hangouts. The ocean view from the porch is an added treat! We'll be back! One thing to consider is that it's on the third floor of the building so if you have troubles with stairs, this might be a problem.

This was our second time staying here. The condo is very clean and up-to-date (i.e. newer appliances, fixtures, decor, etc...) and well maintained. The exterior of the building has been repainted in the past year or so and looks much nicer now. The pool area is in very nice condition too. The beach is a quick walk away, as is the boardwalk and several good restaurants. It's a practically perfect location. The top floor location gives a nice view and it's worth climbing 3 flights of stairs to have no upstairs neighbors. We will definitely stay here again next time!

The apartment is a small, third floor walk-up perfect for a couple's get-away. The location is terrific a short 2 block walk to the beach and everything you need for the beach (umbrella, chairs, etc are provided by owner). We found the apartment to be very clean and well stocked with all of the essentials. The only thing that would make it better would be if towels & linens were provided. But this was a small inconvience given the location - you park your car and enjoy the local restaurants and beach!

Owner response: In order to keep down costs, we do not supply linens and towels. However, information on a local company that does provide this service is shared with all guests in the rental agreement.
Condo was immaculate with up-to-date decor and furnishings in great condition. Perfect for a couple or small family, it was great to have the extra half-bath. Plenty of restaurants and activities within walking distance. The owner was very responsive to emails - often responding within minutes.

A little disappointed
A little disappointed
We have stayed in many different condos and timeshares but never one in North Carolina. Maybe thats what made the difference for us. We were disappointed that we needed to bring everything with us or buy it once we arrived that we would need for our stay. We brought our own sheets and beach towels which wasn't easy coming from Arizona. We did not bring our own bath towels, hand towels, wash clothes, dishwasher detergent, toilet paper, paper towel, garbage bags, etc. Those are all things we had to buy once we got there. We would have had to pay for an extra bag which actually would have saved us money. Liz said that's the way North Carolina rentals work. The place itself was fine. Clean and comfortable. The beach was great. Liz was nice and easy to work with. Just mainly disappointed with the lack of supplies.

Owner response: Larissa, I am sorry you were disaapointed with the lack of supplies. I have been renting this condo for 5 years and this is the first complaint I have had about this, or anything for that matter. Some NC rentals do supply sheets and towels. This results in a higher price for the rent. I did share you the information on renting these items from a local company. When we are at the condo, I always make sure I leave plently of laundry detergent, hand soap, dish detergent, toilet paper, paper towels and trashbags. Usually these items are kept in stock due to renters replenishing what they have used. I am sorry you came at a time when there was none available. I am glad you enjoyed the beach and found our condo clean and comfortable. I hope you will visit NC again!
Great Vacation Memories!
Great Vacation Memories!
We really appreciate you allowing us to use your beach home for our vacation. We found everything to be just as described on your vrbo listing, photos and previous positive reviews. The beach equipment and onsite laundry were especially helpful. We enjoyed being within walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, boardwalk, carnival, fireworks, etc and our Yorkie really enjoyed the walking trail at the lake. We also enjoyed a trolley ride/tour of historic downtown Wlimington and seeing the Battleship North Carolina. Perfect location for great vacation memories! Thanks again!!!

Perfect, just as pictured

This place was great. It is the first place I have gone to that looks exactly like the pictures. It is small, and you might want to know that it is on the third floor so you will be walking up and down the steps. Bed was comfy as well as the pull out couch. You are a close walk away from the beach, the lake and the bordwalk. There is an ice cream place on one side of you and a pancake place on the other. There are a good amount of restaraunts in walking distance.
