About Rhonda Ray

I'm a native North Carolinian. I love Carolina Beach and Wilmington. Each visit is always a unique experience filled with great memories. I enjoy the ocean in every season, and there's always lots to do in the Carolina Beach and Wilmington area.

Rhonda Ray purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rhonda Ray chose Southern Coast

This beach is a couple of hours from where I grew up. The condo is close proximity to the beach, downtown, Carolina Beach's beautiful new boardwalk, and the municipal lake and walking trail. Wilmington is also close by, so this unit offers a beach lifestyle with city amenities.

What makes this condo unique

This property is in a great location at Carolina Beach, a place you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the timeless ocean and build memories. This property offers great value--it's just steps from the beach yet fits any budget. It can accommodate up to 5 persons. I try to create a lovely, calm, and relaxing atmosphere in the condo that guests will enjoy. Besides all the nearby activities within walking distance, the condo is a close drive to the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher, Kure Beach Pier, the Southport ferry, and a variety of shopping and dining experiences. But you don't have to drive anywhere unless you really want to.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening up your condo to us. We had an amazing vacation. What a great spot with everything within a short drive. Kids love the Fort Fisher Aquarium and toy exhibit at the Cape Fear Museum. Kure Beach Pier gave us a beautiful view…Thanks for the suggestion. The kids can’t wait to come back. Next time, we’ll fly and save the 15 hour drive!! Thanks again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved Rhonda's condo. The location could not have been better! The views of the ocean and lake were incredible and we were able to walk almost everywhere we went. The condo had everything we could have wanted and more. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We plan on returning again!

Lovely property, spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

Rhonda's condo is comfortable, well equipped and comes with gorgeous view of the ocean and the lake. It's the first time we've stayed in this area and the first time this time of year. We got to see the Christmas lights throughout Carolina Beach and around the lake. So pretty and festive. Unfortunately we were not here for leisure but rather an ill parent but the beauty we managed to enjoy between hospital visits really helped bring some solace to a very difficult time. We hope to be back when we can enjoy it all. Thank you Rhonda!

Gorgeous ocean front condo with pool and lake on the back side of it!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is spacious and convenient to everything! It is clean and updated with granite countertops, newer carpet, and adorable bunkbeds in the hallway. For only a one bedroom, you can fit a family of 6 in this condo easily! Rhonda was so nice and accomodating, responding instantly to any questions we had. We had a lovely time and look forward to returning again next year!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 children (twins who are 4 and a 7 year old) and this condo was perfect for our family of 5! Two minute walk to beach, amazing views of ocean and lake, and a few blocks to downtown Carolina beach! There was a great rinse off station outside the pool and the pool was clean, well maintained and our girls loved it! Short drive to everything (aquarium, fort fisher, grocery store, restaurants). We walked across the street to the family movie night at the lake, and walked to the beach to see the fireworks and had an amazing view! Just close enough to downtown to see them great, but just far enough away to not be with all the crowds! Even the beach during the day was not crowded, but if you look toward downtown it was crazy busy. We had an amazing trip to Carolina Beach and will likely return! Thanks Rhonda for sharing your beautiful condo with us!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm so glad that you and your family had a great time. The condo's location is definitely an asset--adjacent to the beach and lake park and close enough to walk to the downtown/boardwalk area. I hope you'll be able to return for another stay! You are always welcome.

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We spent several nights at this condo in April. We tested the limits with 5 people and you know what...we loved it! Yes it's tight with 5 people, and with three girls one bathroom is challenging...but we LOVED IT. The location is perfect. We spend time on the beach, at the pond and the boardwalk...all convenient to this location. The owner was terrific to work with, very professional and attentive. Highly recommend this condo.

One of the best locations in Carolina Beach: walk to the beach, lake, boardwalk, dining, and entertainment. A short drive away, visit the the NC Aquarium and the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum. Stroll out on Kure Beach Pier for magnificent ocean views and watching fishermen. Ride the ferry from Fort Fisher to Southport. Jog or walk on the Carolina Beach Lake Walking Trail or rent a paddle boat or canoe. Drive to nearby Wilmington to visit the NC Battleship Memorial, stroll the Riverwalk, take a carriage ride, and explore the unique historic district. Or just relax on beautiful, clean beaches or by the condo pool. Lots to do for everyone!
