This all around water views two bedroom, two bath condo in Carolina Beach will provide a wonderful beach retreat for you and your family. Let you vacation begin on the North end of Carolina Beach where you can sit on the back deck overlooking the salt water pool and watch the sunset over the sound.

This condo is directly across from the beach access to make for one easy short walk to the ocean and fun! If long days on the beach and waterways aren't enough and your vacation isn't complete without fun activities then take advantage of all that Pleasure Island and Carolina Beach has to offer. Like to stand up paddle board, surf, kayak, snorkel or scuba dive? All are available at your leisure. We have provided many great places for you to book surf and paddle board lessons.

If you prefer larger boats for fishing or cruising these too are available right on the island with friendly captains to help you catch the next big fish! We have head boats at the marina that depart daily for full or half day charters in the Gulf Stream and also all around the barrier island of South Eastern North Carolina. Do you have a four wheel vehicle? You may drive on the beach of Pleasure Island at the North End and South End, but please don't try unless you have four wheel drive. We also have piers to fish off of and piers with restaurants and tiki bars as well. If you are bringing your family and kids with you that is perfect because this is a kid friendly island. We even decided to raise our own here we liked it so much. The island offers the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher where you can see and play with all the fish. Other attractions for the kids include amusement rides on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, age sensitive, fireworks every Thursday night in the summer, kid friendly movies, usually Disney, at the Carolina Beach Lake under the stars every Sunday evening in the summer. Lessons for most water sports are also available by age. If you are not bringing the kids the nightlife is also great here for adults. You can find live music almost any night during the summer and there are beach bars and clubs as well for a night out. If this isn't enough for you to do on the island, check out the historic downtown area of Wilmington, NC. Stroll the river walk and dine at amazing river front restaurants. Shop the antiques, local crafts and artists boutiques while downtown- a short 20 minute drive from the condo. If you aren't exhausted yet, don't forget to enjoy the beach and wonderful deck views our condo has to offer. Sit at the salt water pool and watch the kids play right from the back deck of the condo. You may walk over to the beach with a good book and comfortable chair. Remember just leave the phone and computer at home and you will have the most relaxing and fun vacation yet. Hope you will join us and make fun summer memories with your family and friends and enjoy 'Ebb and Flow' at Carolina Beach.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I'm a New Orleans native, and grew up with southern hospitality. I have also lived for many years in the Washington, DC area. My fiance' and I have an advertising specialty company, and can work from anywhere. When we decided to move, we could choose from anywhere in the country. Two of our criteria were Beach and Family Friendly. We literally chose Pleasure Island on a map, and proceeded to move ourselves and two children in 2008. We've never regretted it once! We love the culture, the kindness of the people, safety, natural beauty of landscape and nature, and the simple pleasures that PI has to offer. We hope that as our guests, you can experience fully what is offered here, at your pace, and to your liking.
Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach: We chose to invest in vacation property here, because we feel that this is a slice of Heaven. It's such a well kept secret, unlike other beaches I've been to on the east coast. The Winds IV is one of the multi unit condos in Carolina Beach. It's uniqueness is that it is Oceanfront, has oceanfront pools, and is centrally located to downtown Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. It is always well maintained, has ample parking, and nice size units. There will be no more of it's kind in the area, and I feel that the owners have a high sense of ownership.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We have a vision to make your stay memorable. The all around water views of this unit make it easy to feel you are at the beach. From the back you can see the sound and waterway- watch the boats come in and out of the harbor. You are also lacated right above the saltwater pool and can watch your kids swim at ease. From the front large deck you can sit and see the beach and the ocean. The rooms are cozy, bright, and you will definitely feel that you've come to the beach. We have newly decorated the unit and updated appliances.
