About Janet N. Griffin

Janet and LaVerne live in Portage, Wisconsin. He is a retired Air Force pilot (and still loves to fly); she was a project management consultant for a large midwest insurance company. They currently divide their time between Portage and Carolina Beach.

Janet N. Griffin purchased this condo in 1995

Why Janet N. Griffin chose Southern Coast

As a realtor, Janet's late husband, Loid, knew the value of location. When buying a place to be near their oldest son and his family, he did not hesitate a second when he saw the views from Surfsound. The friendliness of the area and great restaurants and family-oriented activities were a bonus.

What makes this condo unique

We love watching the activity at the pier and on the beach. We often see dolphins. And people are so friendly here. We go off-season because it seems like we have the whole beach to ourselves! Everything is in place but the crowds and traffic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been going to Janet's condo twice a year for 7 years now. Truly our second home! Unsurpassed panoramic view of the ocean, unique decor and spotless. You can't beat this awesome place - we promise! Michaels, Fishy Fishy at Southport and Fish Bites a MUST!

Great views/location

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well stocked condo. Fantastic views from both the balcony and living room. Even when you are making dinner you can see the ocean. Easy bike ride to downtown or walk up to the natural north side. Comfortable master bed and a great value. Our kids loved the kids room too!

Absolutely Perfect & Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we could have wanted, needed and more! The beds were very comfortable as was the living room furniture, but truthfully, we spent most of our time on the deck taking in the amazing view and breathing in the delicious salt air!

The weekend we were there, there was a full moon, comet and partial eclipse and there could not have been a more perfect location to view it from with our telescope (we came prepared).

The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and enjoyed cooking several meals while gazing out the window at the ocean.

Janet was very helpful and friendly and even tried calling to give us concert event info as well as providing us with recommendations for local restaurants. I would highly recommend Janet's condo and we will definitely visit again!

Owner's Response: Wow!!! I've seen lots of dolphins, shrimp boats, full moons, pelicans, sand pipers, etc. but NEVER a comet!! How special. Glad you enjoyed it and, y'all come back, hear? Janet

Great Thanksgiving weekend!

  • 4 of 5

My adult children and I decided last minute to meet at the beech for Thanksgiving. We had never used VRBO or been to NC beeches before and I was nervous about selecting a good condo. We were thrilled with the location and view from the balcony. It was so relaxing to fall asleep to the sound of the waves each night. Janet was very accommodating and the condo had everything we needed. The mattresses were not great but I can only compare them to hotels we have stayed at so maybe my expectations were too high. The condo was much larger than we expected. We had perfect weather - sunny and low 70's so we spent most of Thanksgiving on the beech. Then we enjoyed the aquarium, the pier, the marina, several local restaurants and the Christmas light display at the lake. We really had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back!

Fantastic condo, great view and easy beach access!

  • 5 of 5

The very well appointed condo had everything we could need. Loved the easy beach access right across the street, and the amazing view from the deck. One of the best vrbo rentals we've ever used!
