About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This recently updated second floor unit has spectacular views of the ocean from the living room as well as the master bedroom. There is a dual entry balcony with large sliding doors and windows providing lots of natural light. Decorated in a cottage style with a clean beachy feel, this is a fantastic place for couples to go for a romantic getaway or for families with young children.

The master bedroom offers a new queen size four-poster bed complete with matching furniture, a new LCD flat-screen TV, a DVD player and access to a private half bathroom. Ocean views and balcony access from the master bedroom allow for a truly serene atmosphere.

The second bedroom is decorated in a nautical theme with two twin beds and a generous amount of closet space. An armoire in the living room opens up to reveal a TV, DVD player and extended cable network as well as wireless internet - check your email or surf the net as you gaze out towards the ocean.

Boasting a new ceramic tile floor (which extends throughout the living room and full bathroom), the fully equipped kitchen provides everything you need for meals at home. Just make sure that you don't leave without trying the local, fresh caught seafood at several of the character restaurants nearby.

The full bathroom offers a shower/bathtub combination with an adjacent linen closet. Linens are not provided but can be added for an additional cost. There is a shared coin-operated laundry facility for washer and dryer use on the first floor.

A Place at the Beach is a very clean, quiet condominium complex with it's own private pool and lounge chairs. It is lushly landscaped with palm trees and privacy fenced for wonderful sun-catching fun. Access to the beach is just outside your door and there is an outdoor shower and spray off area solely for the use of our building.

The boardwalk is just a little over 1/2 mile away which boasts restaurants, shopping and a marina that has boat rentals and charters with daily departures for fishing, pleasure boating or sunset cruising. Other activities nearby include the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher and the fishing pier. Not too far away is a ferry to Southport which is a great day trip. For the golf enthusiast, there are several great courses close by that allow public play. Carolina Beach is where the 'shag' dance began and there are numerous festivals (Blues and Jazz, Seafood/Chowder cook-off, Beach Music) during the summer months as well as live music on the boardwalk, free movies and concerts. Of course, the views of pelicans, dolphins and romantic sunrises are best experienced right from the balcony.

About Judy Arrington

My daughter and her husband relocated to Wilmington NC and my husband and I decided to invest in nearby Carolina Beach. Living in Charleston SC, we love the ocean and especially love the family atmosphere and lifestyle that Carolina Beach presents.

Our condo is a little slice of heaven and we love watching the sunrise, pelicans and shorebirds as well as leisurely walks along this wonderful shoreline. We know you will love it too.

Judy Arrington purchased this condo in 2002

Why Judy Arrington chose Carolina Beach

We chose this location to be close to our daughter and her family. They have sinced relocated but we have kept this wonderful condo because we love visiting and relaxing here on the beach.

It's really a great year round experience.

What makes this condo unique

You can't beat the location...just a short walk away from the fishing pier in one direction, or just another short walk to the deep sea fishing boats, the pavilion, shopping and restaurants.

If you wish to drive, you are just minutes away from downtown Wilmington, many golf courses, the aquarium, shopping and just about anything you would like to do. After excursions, you can relax and sit on our balcony, enjoying the cool breezes, or take a dive into the ocean followed by a refreshing dip in our sparkling pool. A full sized kitchen with all the necessary cooking utensils make dinner preparation easy..or drive to several exceptional restaurants without leaving the island. It's the best of both worlds

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice time at your condo and enjoyed our time at Carolina Beach. Thank you for being so very easy to work with.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough how much I loved my stay at this condo! It was perfect and had everything that i needed. I saw dolphins from the balcony every morning - view was great! The kitchen was well equipped which made me feel right at home. Sometimes when you rent a place like this, you are missing cooking utensils but this condo had everything you needed!

I hope to stay here again in the future and would highly recommend! Great location!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for your kind review. It’s always nice to hear from guests who cook and enjoy the kitchen. The dolphins are my favorite along with the in flight pelicans and shrimp boats daybreak. I appreciated so much you taking such good care of the condo during your stay. Looking forward to the possibility of a return visit from you at some future date!

Lovely condo!

  • 4 of 5

Online pictures do not do this place justice! It is lovely and clean. (As far as rentals go) we stayed during the off season. I suspect (from the noises we heard from neighbors) that peek season could be noisy. The condo istelf has some nice updates but the building itself is in need of work. The beach is very nice!

Steps from the the beach, was great for our small family, enjoyed being north of town. Beach is super quiet in Oct. Accommodations were great, we liked having beach chairs and etc with the condo so we didn't have to bring our stuff. Kitchen was fully stocked except for a claw cracker but we made due without that for our home made crab legs. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for your kind review. So happy to hear you finally had the opportunity to enjoy the beach! I’ll have to stock up on the claw crackers next visit for inventory. Thanks for the suggestion. Hope your family can add our condo in your future vacation plans. Kindest regards Judy

Wonderful anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this lovely beachfront condo, and once again it proved to be wonderful. The space is cozy and comfortable with all the basic necessities. The location is great! Easy to access and peaceful in the off season. The view off of the balcony is perfect! There is nothing like falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. I have no complaints! Thank you again!

Very comfortable and attractive condo. We would love to come back!

Judy responded quickly and graciously to all of our questions. We appreciated the availability of beach chairs and pool toys and little conveniences like first aid kit and spare batteries for the TV remote. Lovely quiet location and beautiful ocean view.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. I apologize for the lack of internet. We had huge wind issues from the storm and, unfortunately, it affected our power and Internet. It is usually active and our POA just recently upgraded to higher speed. So sorry for your inconvenience.
