The beaches are clean, wide and uncrowded.

Free Thursday night fireworks and Friday night concerts on the Carolina Beach boardwalk (one of the last beach boardwalks on the East Coast).

We’re a short drive from the state aquarium, the historic Civil War battlefield and earthen batteries at Ft. Fisher, the Southport ferry, and Wilmington, a lively port city that offers museums, historic sites, bistros, bars and restaurants.

About the owner: Originally from Carolina Beach, we recently bought our dream beach house and have made it our home away from home. We enjoy natural surroundings and simple pleasures. We like to explore our neighborhood here on foot, from the beach to the inlet to the wetlands. We often bike to the Carolina Beach boardwalk, the farmers’ market, craft stores and to grocery shopping. We think you’ll feel right at home here as soon as you feel the sea breeze.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Bright, airy and roomy with modern amenities, just a block and half from the beach, yet in a quiet, friendly, family neighborhood.
