About the property

Oceanfront, One Large Bedroom with Queen Bed, One Bath, Sleeps Two

If you want to be as close to the ocean without actually being in it, this top floor, oceanfront condo at Seascape is for you! The view anywhere from the deck, living room and bedroom to the Atlantic Ocean and miles of beach is breathtaking. The beach is routinely

"re-nourished", with City access walkways placed every couple of blocks. There is one right next to the condo!

Seascape lies directly on the beach. The condo deck, off the living room and bedroom, offers a great vantage point from which to watch the action and look at the north pier. Late summer evening dinner on the deck is one of the special experiences this condo offers and the view is spectacular. It feels as though you are on a ship, with an expansive view of the beach and ocean.

There is also a beautiful view of the inter-coastal waterway and marsh of the island from the large kitchen window.

Seascape property also offers a private pool with a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Outdoor grills are available near the pool for family or group outings. This condo is perfect for couples or small family.

The condo has a good size bedroom with walk-in closet, a door directly leading to the deck, a large ocean facing window, with a Queen-size bed. In the living room there is a large sliding glass door where there is a full-size, very comfortable futon. Either place affords a great place to listen to the ocean while you doze off to sleep.

Some major renovations were done recently including new sliding door and all windows, new range, dishwasher, microwave and granite countertops, flooring and HVAC, to name a few. The bathroom and kitchen floors are tiled. New washer/dryer in 2017.

Our vacation home has a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, blender, toaster, coffee grinder and coffee maker, as well as all the other utensils to make your meals in case you decide to relax on the deck while looking at the ocean. There is a table and chairs on the deck for your enjoyment while you relax outdoors and watch the sky, ocean, surfers, pelicans and dolphins!

Two blocks away is the entrance to Freeman Park, a 1 ½ mile stretch of open beach, and one of the last few beaches you can drive on. If you have a 4-wheel drive you can drive right on the beach and spend the day fishing, surfing, swimming, walking or just enjoying the ocean breeze.

Carolina Beach Boardwalk is an easy bicycle ride away. Enjoy seasonal concerts, fireworks, outdoor movies and a Farmer's Market. Experience the sights and sounds of the carnival rides, arcade games, cotton candy and Britt's Donuts at the Boardwalk. You can find the dates for these activities and other information at

About the area:

Carolina Beach and Seascape are located on Pleasure Island that is accessible by bridge from the north or ferry boat from the south. Charter boats for fishing, dining, and tours are located in Carolina Beach. Restaurants, shopping, the North Carolina Aquarium, a small amusement park and beach rentals (bikes, etc.) are also on the island. There is a bicycle path that runs along a part of the island.

There are two piers on the island for fishing. Our condo is located about 1-2 blocks from the one on the north end of the island.

Pleasure Island features various festivals throughout the year. The Spring Festival at Carolina and Kure Beaches features live entertainment, arts and crafts. Several Golf courses are located close by. There are several shops in the area featuring beach items ranging from clothing to home decor. Numerous restaurants serve meals ranging from snacks and casual to more formal evening meals.

Going south on the island, only minutes away, is Fort Fisher Historical Park and Aquarium in Kure Beach. You can also take the ferryboat which makes the half hour trip to the quaint town of Southport. Cars or Bicycles may be taken onto the ferry that goes from Fort Fisher to Southport, both great places to visit.

North, and also a short drive away, is the historic port city of Wilmington where you will find cobblestone streets filled with a variety of shops and restaurants.

Wilmington plays host to various special events. One is the North Carolina Azalea festival in April featuring live musical and theater performances, garden and historic homes tours, outdoor activities, food and crafts. During the summer outdoor activities are scheduled along the Wilmington riverfront. The North Carolina Battleship Museum and riverfront cruises are in Wilmington.

The sandy beach is 7 miles long and accessible by City-maintained walkways placed periodically along the beach. Due to Winter and Spring storms the beach fluctuates but is protected by rocks shown in the photos. The beach this year has space to walk, lie in the sand or play beach games. Access is right next to the condo.

Vacations are a time for fun and relaxation.

I ask only that you please respect my place and leave it as you found it.

You can reach me day or night with any questions or concerns. The condo has been in our family since it was built. We are knowledgeable of the area and can help you with any questions which you might have.

Thank you.

The rates are listed in the rate section by season. In the Summer, I only rent Saturday to Saturday! There is a refundable security deposit of $150. There is a cleaning fee of $75 and taxes at the rate of 13.5%. 2 Guests unless you check with us in advance of booking.

If you stay in the Winter for a month or more you pay the electric and the cleaning fee of $102 instead of $75.

Please bring your own linens and towels. If you would like me to recommend a linen service I will be happy to do so.

Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel before or during your stay, for ANY reason whatsoever, I will try to rent the condo for the time period rented. If I am able to do so that portion re-rented will be refunded to you.

Thank you.

Weekend Anniversary Stay

  • 4 of 5

Great ocean view near pier. The owner is easy to get in touch with. Would probably update the futon sofa as it is not that comfortable to sit in.

Owner's Response: Don, Thank you for your thoughtful comments. My place does have a beautiful view of the ocean, sky, beach and pier, and I always try to be available 24/7 to answer any questions my guests may have concerning their stay in Carolina Beach. I make my one bedroom condo available for up to 3 guests and determined some time ago that if I wanted to provide a space for more than a couple that a solidly built and thick futon made for a better sleep than a sofa bed, which can be cumbersome and heavy to operate and uncomfortable to sleep on, while crowding the living room with numerous sofa cushions when in use as a bed. I am always considering alternatives to make my place an even more enjoyable stay, and will keep your suggestion in mind. Thank you again. Alison

This is a great, clean condo on the quiet north end of Carolina Beach. We had an excellent stay and the owner was very responsive to my questions beforehand. I highly recommend a stay!

My wife and I enjoyed our 10th anniversary last week in this wonderful 3rd floor condo. Access to the beach takes about 1 minute from door to sand. The town was uncrowded and every restaurant we went to was great. (Except the little place at the pier, stay away!) Memory foam bed was very comfortable and futon was as well. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Nice place, very clean, good amenities. Hard water took some time getting use to to and futon couch was not very comfortable. Amazing view of the ocean and beach. Location to beach was great we just had to walk out the door and we're pretty much on the beach. Would definitely recommend.

We stay here every summer and always look forward to it. Even in the busy season it's peaceful and quiet. Mornings on the balcony looking at the ocean are my favorite mornings of the entire year. Perfect property. I never want to leave.

First of all, I wish to to thank the owner for being incredibly welcoming and informative. I had an extended stay in the condo as my family is relocating to NC from Iowa, and I was in the area primarily for interviews in Wilmington (I got the position! Whoo!).

The condo itself is well equipped with everything a couple or family would need (appliances, internet, cable etc etc). The highlight of the condo are the priceless views across the ocean and the bedroom door opening up to the deck (for a morning cup of tea... a British must). Quiet end of the beach, but near enough for entertainment. As I was there for a mix of work and leisure, it was hard not to stay in leisure mode with the sounds of the ocean and the relaxing feel of the area.

Driving distances:

-Laundry facility (5mins)

- Mini grocery (10min walk)

- Major grocery (8 min drive - Food Lion)

- Bars (5 min - walking = 40 or so)

- Beach - you're on it!
