About the property

1-bdrm, 1bath; bunks in hall alcove; 1/2 block to beach access. Great location.

Enjoy your beach vacation in this 1-bedroom, 1-bath condo. It is strictly nonsmoking and does not allow pets. In addition to the queen bed in the bedroom, this property has twin bunks in a hall alcove and a sleeper sofa. Enjoy time on two decks, one with an ocean view and the other with a view of the municipal lake and walking trail.

This property has been updated with granite counters and new bedroom furniture and has the amenities of home. It's truly one of the best locations in Carolina Beach, just steps away from the beach, boardwalk (with rides and games and Britt's Donuts), the municipal lake and walking trail, the marina, restaurants, and shopping. It works well for a single traveler, two or three persons, or a small family.

This condo is within a well established condominium that has a large, well maintained pool. It is located across from the Carolina Beach Lake Park and is convenient for strolling on the lake trail or people-watching from the bedroom deck. The condo has WIFI, central air conditioning (or heating for cooler months), washer-dryer, assigned parking, and full cable television. It is clean and comfortable with no smoking and no pets allowed.

This unit's kitchen features porcelain tile floors, granite counters, full-size cooktop and oven, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, deep sink and garbage disposal, microwave, blender, coffeemaker, toaster, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, glassware (including wineglasses), and other needed utensils for cooking and dining. The kitchen is open to the living and dining area and has a bar area with 3 chairs for extra dining seating.

In addition to the flat screen televisions with full cable in both the living room and bedroom, this condo has DVD and VCR players, a stereo, and a selection of games, movies on DVD, and books to enjoy during your stay.

From the condo, it's just a short drive to the very popular North Carolina Aquarium, the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum, and the Kure Beach Pier--a great place to fish or watch fishermen pull in their catch. The thriving port city of Wilmington, NC, is 15 minutes away and has the Historic Riverfront District with its unique restaurants, shops, walking tours, tour bus rides, carriage rides, and riverboat cruises. Wilmington is also home to the USS North Carolina WW II Battleship Memorial and UNC-Wilmington.

Summer: Weekly Rental, Saturday to Saturday.

$75.00 cleaning fee and 13% state and county tax will be added to quoted rates.

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 condo offers a beach lifestyle with city amenities.

What makes this condo unique

This property is in a great location at Carolina Beach, where you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the timeless ocean and build lasting memories. This property offers great value--it's just steps from the beach and the Carolina Beach Boardwalk and the Municipal Lake. It can accommodate up to 5 persons easily. 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 Fort Fisher/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.

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!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was well maintained, had everything we would need from the kitchen necessities to beach chairs and an umbrella. The bed was really comfy and although it's on the road side we were able to turn on the fan and never heard any of the traffic. The location is something that is worth everything to our family as we enjoyed walking to everything!! The only issue I noticed was parking. Which Rhonda did inform us that there's only 1 designated parking spot. We plan to visit again soon

Carolina Beach
Car: recommended

One of the best locations in Carolina Beach: walk to the beach, ocean, lake, boardwalk, marina, 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. Or see pelicans sitting on the pier as they watch fishermen pull in their catch. Take a half-hour fun ferry ride from Fort Fisher to Southport, stroll the village of Southport (site of Safe Haven [i.e., Nicholas Sparks] production), 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 area, take a carriage ride, explore the unique historic district, or shop in the Cotton Exchange stores and boutiques. Visit Airlie Gardens or Orton Gardens. Relax on beautiful, clean beaches or by the condo pool. Lots to do for everyone!
