About Dana O'Donovan
We are a young family who lives in nearby Wilmington and loves escaping to the beach whenever we can.
Dana O'Donovan purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Dana O'Donovan chose Carolina Beach
We love the uncrowded soft sand beaches and that Carolina Beach is so walk-able and family-friendly. Our daughter loves to play on the beach and then spend the afternoons in the pool. The porch is perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze in the early mornings and the evenings.
What makes this Condo unique
We love taking long walks on the beach looking for shells and watching the sunset from the balcony. Then,we have a great time walking to dinner at the Sea Witch or Gibby's Dock & Dine followed by riding the rides and getting ice cream on the boardwalk. In the morning, don't forget Britt's Donuts!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!
Immediately fell in love with this place! The view from the living room and balcony are absolutely perfect! Dana made us feel right at home, complete with a little welcome booklet. We were only there for a weekend so we didn't spend much time in the room at all since everything was within walking distance. We didn't use anything but we loved that Dana is thoughtful enough to provide all of the little extras that sometimes get forgotten on trips. My husband and I both sang praises over this condo and hope Dana will have us back for our vacation next summer.
The location of this unit was fantastic. It is right on the beach and is in walking distance to shops and many restaurants. One morning we even watched dolphins from the balcony!!! The condition of the unit served our needs. It isn't anything special but we wanted the location and something less expensive and this fit the bill. I'm not sure what part was "recently remodeled". The couch and queen bed were very comfortable but the twin mattresses were a little scratchy. I would recommend bringing a mattress pad. I give it an overall 4 stars because it is what we expected. If you want something upscale, this is not the place for you.
Thanks for your review and glad the location worked so well for your vacation. And, dolphins are always a bonus! I appreciate your feedback on the unit itself, especially on the twin mattresses. I will get mattress pads to take care of that. Our goal is to provide a comfortably appointed condo in a great location at a good value for family beach vacations all year long.
Perfect Beachfront Condo
What a wonderfully updated condo on the Atlantic Ocean. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium on the top floor of this complex offers panoramic views of the ocean. Breakfast on the deck is beautiful with the sunrise and the sea gulls (I had one literally eating out of my hand!). Dining is within easy walking distance while Carolina Beach State Park is just a couple of minutes away (it has Venus flytraps and the biggest pine cones I've ever seen). Dana made access easy and the condo has everything you need to make your stay comfortable (except for linens. But Dana provides the contact info of a local company you can rent linens from, or you can bring your own. It was no big deal). The condo is clean, updated, and comfortable. I will definitely be back
Great location - close enough that we walked to restaurants for dinner, and we loved spending time on the balcony (lovely views) and how close we were to the ocean.
Great oceanfront condo!
Great condo! Very clean and nicely decorated! Be sure to read the manual the owner put together-especially if you need restaurant ideas. The balcony was our favorite spot to relax and watch the waves! We would definitely stay there again!
Great place with amazing views!
We had a wonderful stay in Dana's condo! It's an older building/condo, however, it was very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. I really liked that it included supplies that you would normally have to bring/purchase, such as paper towels, bath tissue, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. Really, anything that you would have at home, was there. The views from this unit were amazing! It's right on the ocean, and literally steps to the beach. It was really nice to enjoy my morning coffee or a glass of wine out on the patio while watching the waves crash. It's a top floor unit, about 4 flights up, no elevator. So this would not be a good fit for anyone with mobility issues. Centrally located to many restaurants and activities. Lovely place, we will definitely return!
Walk to restaurants, the Carolina Beach boardwalk with games, entertainment and ice cream, fishing pier and deep sea fishing charters. Fort Fisher and NC Aquarium are on the island - a short drive away.
