Carolina Beach cottage description

This is one of two vacation rentals on the property. The other unit is a two bedroom (VRBO #557429). The units can be rented separately or together to sleep 12.

This one bedroom cottage has a large private bedroom with a king bed and a seating area as well as a private exit to the patio. Captains bunks in the hallway sleep two (best for kids to teens) and a pull out couch allow this unit to sleep a total of six. It's perfect for families or a group of friends.

This is a private single story stand alone bungalow. So, no upstairs or downstairs neighbors or shared walls with other units!

This is our home away from home and is set up for peace, comfort and enjoyment. There is a full kitchen that is stocked with all the supplies you need for wonderful meals or a quick bite. Including a full size fridge, range, microwave, and dishwasher. The bath includes a deep soaking tub and shower. There is also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit for your use.

It is just a block and a half from the beach and the boardwalk so you are right in the middle of the action but as soon as you get back 'home' you will experience the peace and quiet of a private residence. The bungalow is surrounded by a variety of delightful outdoor space with plenty of sun or shade areas to relax. The front of the exterior has a small garden space and a large patio with seating. The side courtyard has a fenced area for pets and the back has a large beautiful in-ground pool with palms and a waterside. The pool is solar heated so it is open earlier and later in the year than most pools in the area. The pool is only shared with two other units. One unit is a two bedroom vacation rental and the other unit is a long term rental occupied by the property's caretakers.

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About: My name is Rebecca Bartz. My husband and I purchased this property and lived there with our two children for several years. Family obligations drew us back to our home state of Minnesota but we just could not part with this treasure. We made this one unit into a weekly rental so we will have a place to stay when we visit and hopefully still pay the mortgage :-)

                      Why Carolina Beach:
                      We were looking for access to the beach and a pool but still wanted to have a quiet and private space. We did not like having to deal with the crowds, traffic noise and party atmosphere of the strip along the ocean but then we found this treasure! It is so close to the beach as well as all of the activities Carolina Beach has to offer. We are right next to all the stuff you'll want to experience. Once you get to the bungalow you could just leave your car and walk to everything you would like to do. You can literally sit on the front patio and watch the Thursday night fireworks and smell the donuts cooking at Brits! The pool is as large or larger than some of the pools at the hotels in the area but virtually private. You will feel like you are in an oasis. I love to cook and have had some bad experience with rental properties saying they had a well stocked kitchen but did not. Don't worry about that here. I have made sure I have all the tools I need to have fun with my cooking hobby.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      This is a one story unit. There are no stairs to get in, or once you get in. Trust me, this is a great feature! No hauling all your things up and down all those stairs! There is exterior space for children to play with a gate to separate that space from the pool. We are a pet friendly unit. We love pets!!! But to us that does not just mean that we allow pets. The unit is designed with flooring that allows for good clean up between rentals. It is mostly tile with a low pile carpet in the bedroom. This unit also has plenty of parking. Unlike many units that only allow one car, we have private parking for three vehicles and unlimited parking right next to the unit along the road.
