About the property


Treat yourself to a relaxing vacation with captivating scenery from this "home away from home" 2nd floor OCEANFRONT dream at Carolina Beach! Enjoy panoramic ocean views, the sound of waves crashing on the beach, dolphins frolicking in the surf, and amazing sunrises all from your private covered deck. Delight in leisure activities on the wide sandy beach or unwind with a good book while the rhythmic sounds of the ocean create a calming and restive atmosphere.

Our oceanfront beach home is named 'Beachfront ELM'. It is fully equipped for your comfort, relaxation, and possesses everything for a wonderful family vacation or a romantic getaway. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 private covered decks, and a living/dining room with direct, unobstructed views of the ocean. Keyless entry eliminates having to keep up with keys.

Beds consist of 1 queen, 2 twins, and a queen sleeper/sofa. Maximum occupancy is 6. There is assigned parking. For your convenience, complimentary high speed wired/wireless internet connection is provided.

Carolina Beach, which is part of Pleasure Island along with Kure Beach and Fort Fisher, offers a number of excellent restaurants, specialty retail shops, drug stores, a very nice full service grocery, beach rentals (bikes, linens, etc.), ice cream parlors, charter cruises, the North Carolina Aquarium, and numerous sporting activities for the entire family. Enjoy fireworks every Thursday night at the boardwalk during the Summer! Also, enjoy Beach Bingo at the boardwalk!

On the far North End is the North End Pier which can be seen from the our home. There is amazing fishing there and the location of and the start of Freedom Park, one of the only areas in North Carolina where you can drive on the beach. It's an awesome place to drive out and watch the sunset on the far end of the beach.

The Lake on the island offers a paved walking trail, playground, paddle boats, and kayaking. Several excellent golf courses are located within minutes from the beach. Enjoy FREE movies at the lake every Sunday night on a large outdoor screen from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend. Bring your chair, food, and beverages and experience a great evening under the stars while watching cinema.

Give Pleasure Island Rentals a try--they will deliver chairs and umbrellas to any spot on the beach you choose. Definitely saves you time and effort. They also pick them up so it's great and convenient. Worth EVERY penny. Very affordable!

Our oceanfront home is just minutes away from the port city of Wilmington where you will find shopping, restaurants, and the historic downtown district filled with interesting sites and experiences. Wilmington is the home of the North Carolina Azalea Festival held in April featuring live musical and theater performances, garden and historic home tours, outdoor activities, food, and crafts. Other points of interest in Wilmington are the USS North Carolina Battleship and Museum. Wilmington and surrounding areas/beaches have also become a hot spot for Hollywood Film Directors for film making locations and tv show locations. "Under the Dome" is the most recent tv show using the areas such as Fort Fisher as a location. You never know what Hollywood stars you will cross paths with. I have run into a few. Some refer to the area now as "Wilmywood". Tour the EUE/Screen Gems Studios to get an insider's look at the largest studio complex east of California and to experience the rich history of films and television shows produced at the facility over the last three decades.

In the Fort Fisher area there is an award winning aquarium and you can take a ferry across the Cape Fear River to a charming town called Southport with many shops and restaurants. For all those history fanatics, visit Forth Fisher museum that features items from the American Civil War.

Come and experience for yourself why so many people return to Carolina Beach for a restful, undisturbed getaway from the usual daily demands.

We have enjoyed our piece of heaven since 2000 and are committed to making your stay at our home positive and unforgettable! We hope you get to experience it for yourself!

About The Owner

This is our piece of heaven, and we want to share it with others. Hope you get to enjoy it soon!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose Carolina Beach

Carolina Beach is a quaint town with small town amenities. The fun and activities are endless on the island and in the Wilmington area.

What makes this condo unique

This special place allows my husband and I relaxation and peace in a family oriented environment. I often tell him that his brain turns to jello when we cross the bridge onto the island. He agrees! (smile).

We love the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, smelling the ocean air while walking on the beach...sipping a morning cup of coffee and watching the sun rise over the big Atlantic Ocean!!

Doesn't get any better than this!!

Beautiful Condo with a great view and location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely furnished. The kitchen had stainless steel appliances that worked great. We loved the view from the spacious deck. We sat out on the deck every morning and evening. The convenience of the beach was perfect. Where we were at wasn't crowded at all. We sat on the beach right in front of the condo and enjoyed the fireworks at the boardwalk on Thursday night. I would definitely recommend renting the chair/umbrella. We brought our own and the umbrella didn't hold up well under the wind. We were close enough that we could walk to everything (restaurants, bar's, shops). My husband and I had the room with the twin beds. The mattresses were very comfortable. We both slept really well. The only down side was the stairs. If you can't handle walking up and down 2 flights of stairs several times a day, then this is not the place for you. I thought it was great exercise along with walking the beach every morning looking for shells. At night we would take our flashlights down to the beach and look for crabs. That was a lot of fun watching them run back into the ocean. Overall, we loved this condo. Thank you Emily for sharing such a great place. We would definitely come again.

Our favorite vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year that we have spent our family trip at Emily's condo. The condo is extremely comfortable and very well maintained. My family loves it there and we are always sad to leave. We plan to return next summer. I highly recommend it!

Great unit: Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Carolina Beach. The condo was very clean when we arrived and very well appointed. The owner was also very proactive in reaching out to make sure that everything was fine. The location can't be beat - any closer to the beach and you'd be wet all the time!
