"I have to start off by saying that Janet and her son are truly a pleasure to deal with. They definitely went above and beyond to make this vacation happen for us and to make it great, and we are so grateful. This condo is very nice! Well decorated and very cozy. Has everything a family would need. Great location. The views and the sound of the ocean are just amazing. Access to the beach is a short walk away. We watched surfers and collected seashells, and saw a beautiful sunrise. The pier is right there also. The town is just a short drive away and has lots of great places to eat and shops to visit. We also ventured to Southport via the ferry, and went into the charming town of Wilmington which isn't very far away. We had the best time and everything far exceeded our expectations. Thank you!"

"Our family (two adults and three children) had an amazing vacation experience at Carolina Beach and this home was central to that vacation.
We looked at a number of places on vrbo.com before choosing the Hacienda Hall. Having the four bedrooms and three bathrooms made the house feel like our home for a week. No crowding or lines waiting to shower. The house lives very large and is so comfortable. The kitchen is updated and modern. We appreciated having a washer and dryer to stay on top of our laundry. It was nice to return home without a weeks worn of laundry to do.
This property was a perfect home away from home and exceeded all of our expectations. The house was exactly as described and had everything you need to enjoy a hassle free vacation. Having a fully appointed home with all linens and kitchen needs accounted for made packing easy. The home has lots of stuff for your daily trips to the beach (chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, and bikes).
The location is perfect to enjoy the beach, the Carolina Beach Boardwalk and local attractions (Wilmington, Kure Beach, the North Carolina Aquarium….the list goes on and on). Don't forget to go to Pop's Ice Cream (we went every day) and Britt's Doughnuts on the Boardwalk (I won't confess how many dozens we consumed). The house is just off the beach and we could walk there in minutes. We debated about not being right on the water and opted for the more space and better pricing being juts across the main road. We didn't feel like we sacrificed a thing!
Working wit the owners felt like we were preparing to visit family. They were so accessible and went out of their way to make sure we would have everything we needed when we arrived. For example...We asked if they had a crock pot. They replied they didn't have one at the house but offered to bring one from their personal home. Who does that? Wow!
We had a great time we are looking forward to another vacation in the area. We would, without a doubt, stay here again. We owe a great thanks to this Happy Yellow Duplex as it was the center of a vacation we will remember for years."

"I stayed at this condo with 5 girlfriends in August for 3 nights.
Pluses- clean, good layout, great views from balcony (and living room and kitchen when the balcony door is open), great location across the street from the beach, comfortably sleeps 6+, 3 bathrooms was nice, kitchen and family room are connected, the owners were helpful and easy to get in contact with. When it rained, since the balcony was covered we could still gave the door open and enjoy the sound and smell of the ocean.
Drawbacks- on the 3rd floor, so maybe not great if climbing stairs isn't your thing. The kitchen had adequate but not great supplies. The condo is simple, not fancy.
We'd definitely stay here again."

"This was my third time to rent Leeward for a week, and as with previous visits everything was outstanding. They have added some flat panel TV's with Roku in the bedrooms. We cooked breakfast every morning and the kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed. The weather was great, so we used the beach (300 feet away) more than usual, the close proximately was great. Absolutely the best value on Carolina Beach and it couldn't be easier to work with the owners/leasing company. Highly recommended."
