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.

What a wonderful place! It worked great for a family of four. The location is perfect. Super close to everything you need. Great price and value. This was a great spot for my husband, two daughters (5 & 2), and myself. I don’t even know where to begin.... the kids room with two twins was great for them and close to our room. The pool area was big and there were so many super nice families there. Beach access was awesome because there weren’t any steps; it was a ramp on both ends. We saw dolphins every morning. I just can’t say enough good things. We’ll be back for sure!

Great Value Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A lot of bang for your buck here! Beachfront, a view, a lot more space and options than staying at a hotel (that could be just as much or more than this unit!) Only negative was it's a relatively old building (smells funny) and the coffee maker wasn't usable but these two items don't nearly outweigh all the positives so that's why I give 5 stars :)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the coffee maker. We have a new one now. Please come again and have a great fall. Regards Judy

Perfect beach destination

  • 5 of 5

This has been my second time at this lovely Apartment directly at the Carolina Coast and I will be back for sure. The Apartment has everything you Need and more!! It is taken care of really well, 100% clean and comfortable. The provided beach toys, Umbrellas and Beach chairs are just great to have when you are staying at the beach for a couple of hours. The pool is also wonderful, clean and well maintained. We enjoy Carolina Beach very much - so much to do for a Family or even a couple of friends traveling together. The owner provides loads of info material from the surrounding area as well as local diner menues for you to browse. As you have your dedicated parking spot at the Building you never have to look for parking. Just perfect! Thanks again for having us - we are looking Forward to the next time!

Nice, clean, cute condo on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Judy was great to work with, and everything was well communicated throughout the stay. No problems with anything, unit very well appointed. We opted for the linen service since we flew in, and that was convenient. Great price for a nice place right on Carolina Beach. Sunrise coffee and after dinner wine on the deck was wonderful. Carolina Beach was wonderful, we'll definitely be back!
