Carolina Beach house description

This private home, built in 2011 offers style and comfort usually only found in much larger beach homes. With three bedrooms, two full baths and a Queen size pull out couch in the Living room, there is plenty of room for you and your family or friends to move about with ease and comfort.
With 1500 square feet of space featuring such treatments as granite counter tops over real Maple cabinets, oak hardwood floors, gas fireplace and 7.1 surround sound (with separate external deck speakers) and flat screen TV's you are certain to 'live the good life' whether at the beach or spending some 'down time' inside.
The top of the home consists solely of the Master Bedroom Suite. A huge room with King bed, private bath with walk in closet and your own private (from the rest of the house and partitioned from next door neighbors) walk out deck, there is plenty of room to relax or watch the days go by below. Star gazing at night from this deck is one of the most enjoyable parts of staying at this home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife and I have been in the business of building (I am a licensed General Contractor) and maintaining rental property in the Wilmington area since the early 90's. We are now the proud owners of two beach homes in Carolina Beach starting with 'A Summer's Rest', a wonderful second row beach home that we built from scratch in 2011. With the overwhelming rental popularity of that home, we now would like to present 'A Summer's Rest 2'. This is home has just recently been remodeled (summer of 2013) and is ready for occupancy. We are a local family who enjoys using our beach homes when not in use. We know you'll enjoy which ever home you choose and we would like to thank you for considering staying with us.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
We chose this location for it's view back in 2005. With a mostly unobstructed view from across the street, it's one of the best second row views on the strip. Surrounded by much larger and more expensive homes, we/you are in great company. We have received many compliments from both visitors and local towns people for having one of the best looking homes on the strip as well. It has plenty of style without the need for the size and price of much larger homes. You will enjoy this home!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A quiet, private and safe family location smack dab in middle of the historic Cape fear region, you can't go wrong!
