Recent Carolina Beach reviews
Our wonderful fall family beach trip!
"Our family often travels to Carolina Beach in the fall because we love to stay here when the crowds disappear and the weather and water are still warm. This home we chose this year was the perfect gathering place for the whole family, all 10 of us (ages 5 to 70!)
The home itself is very beautiful with nice decorations and plenty of space for everyone, the website is very accurate showing what the rooms look like however we were pleasantly surprised with how much space was in each bedroom. And talk about surprises, the views from the top floor are amazing!!! My kids usually spend most of their time outside, but I noticed they spent a lot more time inside because of the amount of room they had in their rooms and outside on the large decks. Plus it was so nice to have a top floor as large as this one where the whole family can hang out and play games and it never came close to feeling crowded.
And the location was great in that we were within walking distance to just about everything.
The booking process was so easy through the owner and she really helped us feel at home all week long, providing suggestions when we asked and letting us know about some fun things for our family to do and great restaurants to try that we had not seen before.
I would stay here again in a second and plan to do so next year! Everything was exceptional!!"

"We found the condo was as described and very clean. The owner was most helpful during all the contacts and the property manager was helpful and responsive. Our family enjoyed our stay at Big Blue and loved the ocean and lake views. I would recommend it to others and we would use it again. The only cautionary note I would offer is that the condo is wheelchair accessible and the hallways are living areas are large enough for a wheelchair, but there were no other handicapped friendly features I am aware of such as wider bathroom doors, safety bars or lower counters. It does not advertise that it is, but I felt I should mention this since it is listed as wheelchair accessible ."

"We loved staying here! It was clean, nice size not cramped at all, fantastic location just a few minutes walking to the boardwalk, and we'd never been to Carolina Beach before so we were pleasantly surprised by the town itself too. Honestly, my husband and I talked about it and we have no complaints at all. Would definitely stay here again- thanks!"

"Im not a big beach person but my family is. The View from the front deck was awesome. The Condo was very clean with updated appliances. Yes, the view was great and the beach access was terrific but one of my favorite features was the lock system for the front door (NO KEY NEEDED). Simply program the lock with your own 3 to 6 digit code when you arrive (Very easy to program) so nobody in your family need carry a key to the beach and back. I want one of these locks for my house now. If there is a negative it is that the pool is not attached to this unit. It is in the unit on the other side of the road. This may be a positive for anyone that does not want to be around a pool. During this trip the weather was unseasonably Hot so the covered parking was great. You can walk to the main strip in 5 - 10 minutes which was nice also. Everything in the unit worked well including the AC which was also appreciated on the 100 degree days we had. I didn't realize what a great detour Fort Fisher would be (only 10 minute drive from condo). It only takes an hour or so to tour the facility and you get to see and hear a lot of great civil war history (I'm not a civil war buff but did enjoy it). Another nice surprise was the $5.00 Ferry ride to Southport ($5.00 took my car and 5 occupants on the 45 minute boat ride to Southport from Fort Fisher. This was great deal if you have kids. They will love it."
