Luxury Oceanfront Condo: Wifi, Pool and Linens Included.

We are currently taking 2017-2018 Winter Rentals. We would appreciate a minimum of a 28 night stay during the winter months. A discount will be provided if your monthly rental exceeds 3 months. If you have questions or certain dates please don't hesitate to call for additional details.

Welcome to 'A Place at the Beach'. A Luxury Oceanfront, Non-Smoking, 2 bedroom condo in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. You can smell the ocean air you are so close in this 3rd floor, direct oceanfront unit.

The homeowners association does not allow pets on site, sorry.

The pictures say it all but I will try to describe some of the best features. Highly desirable location, property books quickly during peak season.

This is a much sought after 3rd floor unit which makes it a highly desirable location in a modern building. Please keep in mind there is no elevator in this complex. There are no units above you and you have a great view from the oceanfront balcony. Both the master bedroom and living room open to a beautiful oceanfront deck with 3 colorful adirondack chairs. The condo has a central air conditioning system, beach style living room furniture and a 43' flat screen TV with a DVD player. The condo is nicely decorated with fun beach touches throughout and is a fantastic place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

This quiet building has its own private pool surrounded by palm trees. The pool features a fun colorful theme, lounge chairs, picnic tables and three sun umbrellas. The pool is open for swimming from April 15- October 31. There are secure rinse-off showers on the ground floor and a coin operated laundry room for your use. Located within the condo are beach fold-up chairs, a cooler, some buckets and shovels, a boogie board and noodles for the kids; so there is no need to haul all that stuff on top of your car. The condominium is 1/2 mile north of the Boardwalk which feature seasonal rides for the kids, numerous shops and restaurants, fireworks on Thursday nights and Sunday movie night at the lake. Just blocks from the condominium is the Marina with daily departures on fishing charters, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, and boat rentals.

As a mark of quality 50% of my bookings are from repeat guests or referrals. I take pride in a providing a clean quality condo for your enjoyment. I hope to see you at the beach this year.

If your party is more than 4 to 6 people, we can try to find additional properties for you in that same condo association.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at Carolina Beach Ave. It was perfect:) My mom and I loved having the balcony overlooking the beach, the warm weather and the peaceful area. The apartment had everything we needed and the weather was absolutely perfect.

We loved it so much we hope to rent from you again in the future.

Thanks again!

Renewed and Refreshed

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were right at home in this cozy condo.

The view from the balcony is amazing and we enjoyed the dolphins in the morning with a cup of coffee, and the stars at night with a glass of wine.

The location is great and close to many restaurants and a fabulous yoga studio.

We enjoyed a great afternoon at Ft Fisher and a day in Wilmington.

When our grandchildren came to visit there is a lake with a neat playground and picnic area. We also hiked at the State Park that is very close by and the kids enjoyed the hands-on displays inside the information center. We spent a lovely day in Southport via ferry as well.

The condo was well stocked and we needed nothing. The convenience to the beach and sand made life so easy. We got lots of walks in, and the kids loved the sand. Lots of sand toys in the condo and chairs for additional ease.

Bill and Jenn were great to work with, and we would highly recommend this condo

The view was awesome, however the beds were hard, so much so I went to Walmart to get a foam cover.

  • 2 of 5

Also the Wifi was terribly slow, as my niece wined about the whole time.. Ended up using our phone as a hot spot to speed things up. Condo was smaller than we expected but over all nice. Especially enjoyed the chairs on the deck..in fact meant to get a photo,so my hubby could make some.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate any type of feedback. I wanted to address the beds to any future guests. We have had positive reviews for the beds, I truly believe the beds are a personal preference and sorry they were uncomfortable for you. With that said, we are getting a new bed set in the second bedroom this year to change things up. As for the internet, I wish we knew as we could have called someone to check it out. Thank you again for your feedback and so glad you enjoyed the chairs. Those are Adirondack Chairs.

Great place, beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The view is really great and the porch furniture was nice. The furniture in the condo was very comfortable, especially the beds. There was lots of games that we cold play with our 4 year old. It rained for 4 days so we did a lot of puzzles. The shower could use an upgraded shower head. It's extremely old. We were disappointed in the kitchen - although it had the big appliances, it was missing the bare essentials. The condo did not come with paper towels, trash bags, nor toilet paper. We were not expecting to have to buy trash bags or toilet paper. In fact, we've never had to do that before. The kitchen could use some improving. Some things that we thought could be present are the basic essentials - a dish rag/brush (something to clean the dishes with) and salt and pepper. Even if we stocked up on these items, there was no room in the cabinets to put anything. Every single knife was dull and there were only a few knives to use. At a minimum there should be a knife sharper. We got oysters and crab for take out one night and there was nothing to shuck the oysters or pull the crab meat. The silver wear needs to be updated - its old and dull. The overall lack of kitchen supplies was our only compliant; otherwise we had a great time. If the kitchen would be upgraded we'd come back.

Wonderful stay at A Place at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. The condo has just enough room and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a few meals. The view from the living room and balcony are amazing and I very much enjoyed watching the sunrise in the morning. We saw a few dolphins and watched people surf the storm waves.

Priceless view

My family and I stayed on the third floor and had the most beautiful priceless view. The condo was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed for five days stay. Definitely worth it.
