Why Bob and Stephanie Handlin chose Carolina Beach
We both love the beach. Stephanie's dream has always been to hear the waves from her bedroom. Bob's dream has been to make Stephanie's dreams come true. This unit is everything we've ever wanted. It's a few blocks from the boardwalk, but just far enough to not be right in the middle of the bustle. And the view! It's perfect. SANDS IV is the only new oceanfront condo building on the island and its location is one of the best at the beach. The building is on a quiet one way street within walking distance to everything.
What makes this Condo unique
We designed the furnishings around the ocean and the view. You can relax any way you'd like on the spacious deck (sipping a cold beverage at the high top, lounging in the Adirondacks or rockers, or napping on the chaise). Then throw on a swimsuit and hop in the ocean at a moment's notice. Everything that makes Carolina Beach great is literally at your disposal. It's truly a spectacular feeling. Because the building is new, it meets current safety and building codes. It features commercial construction with added insulation for added quiet, firewalls and sprinklers throughout the building, and a second stairwell for safety. Just two blocks South of the Carolina Beach boardwalk, we're on a quiet one-way street. You can leave your car at the unit and walk everywhere.

Beautiful condo, location was great, we walked to area restaurants and the boardwalk, didn't even move our car until we left for home. Something for everyone, our group was from age 4 to 54 and we all loved it. The pool was small but perfect for the size of the complex, in fact we were in it on two occasions completely by ourselves. Lots of games to play and extras on the tv. Lots of things are provided, I would advise that you take laundry supplies to wash your towels as only 6 sets were provided and we shower a lot. But, I always do laundry when at the beach so no big deal anyway. This was our first time at Carolina Beach and hopefully will not be our last. But, I will surely rent this condo again! The homeowners were exceptionally helpful. I can't sing the praises of this place and these folks enough!
Amazing and fresh oceanfront condo
Very clean and looks to have been recently remodeled. Great view, many new deck chairs, plenty of towels...even a few beach towels. Newer appliances. Easy and quick access to the beach. Kids used the pool every day. 10 minute walk to nice restaurants and the boardwalk. We will definitely look for this condo again!
Great group getaway
The property was great and exactly as advertised. It was right by the beach with a cute little pool that was great for the kids. We really enjoyed our stay!
So worth the drive from Michigan!
The condo was great for our trip! There were two families, one family 2 adults amd a 3yr old and the other family was one adult and a 9yr old and 2yr old. Evrrything was so orgamized and perfect for our needs with being close to the beach and restaurants. We already started planning our trip for next year!
Property is absolutely beautiful with a breathtaking view of the beach. Condo is so clean and welcoming. Will definitely visit again!
Anytime Krista; we'd love to host you again!
Condo great but parking terrible
It is a nice beach place but the parking situation is terrible. You are either trapped and unable to get out if others park behind you or required to drop everything and move your vehicle if you are trapping someone else. And lanes are so tight you can scarcely open car doors once you are parked or open storage closet.
Glad you loved the unit. Yes, the parking can be a challenge. Seems like many of our guests choose this location for the proximity of everything nearby and tend to park and walk during their stay.
