Guestbook comments from the manager

"We really enjoyed that house. It is just a perfect location; the ad was correct- we parked the car and didn't use it again until we were ready to leave. Even my extremely pregnant wife was able to walk to everything we did!"

Carolina Beach is a great place to vacation and The Big Blue Pelican is located right in the center of it all. Once you arrive, you can park your car and put away your keys until your departure. Visit Kate's Pancake House for a great breakfast and Gibby's for dinner. Walk to both of these restaurants, along with many others for a great meal. Enjoy the nightlife? No need to call a cab -- there are a handful of great bars within a 5 minute walk of our property. If fishing is your thing, this is the location for you. We are located directly between the Yacht Basin and the beach access. The beach access is an easy 500 feet away from your front door!

Carolina Beach is a family friendly vacation destination. You and your little ones can easily walk to the amusement park for an evening of fun, complete with fireworks! History buffs will enjoy the historical Fort Fisher while beach bums will be amazed at the beautiful, unobstructed coastline it offers -- just a 5 minute drive! While you are there, check out the Fort Fisher Aquarium for a great educational experience for adults and children alike.


We encourage you to view the Town of Carolina Beach's website for information on Carolina Beach's pet rules. Pets are NOT allowed on Carolina Beach during the peak season. They are allowed in certain areas so give the town a call for more information.

Unfortunately Not the Best Visit

  • 2 of 5

The unit we stayed in was right across the street from a gas station and on a somewhat busy road. The two window air conditioners were barely able to keep the place cool and this was the cool time of the year. There were dead bugs in several of the rooms, but then I guess that is to expected by the beach.

Our worse issue was that we had several items stolen from us on the beach directly out from this unit. We left our chairs and a small cooler on the beach while we took a short walk and when we cam back they were gone.

The area is not very safe and we for one will not be returning to the area any time soon.

On a positive note.....

The Aquarium, State Park and Fort Fisher were great attractions to visit.

Nice rooms a block away from the beach, and plenty of room on the inside for guests. Very clean and taken care of and the owner answered any questions we had about the property.

The house was clean and ready for our arrival. The proximity to the beach and the boardwalk was wonderful. Even thought we were in the middle of it all we were still able to sleep in the cool and quiet! We loved it and will book again!

Perfect location, and nicely refurbished interior.

Our stay at 2 Pelican lane was terrific. The house was in the perfect location to everything we planned on seeing; and in walking distance! We plan on renting again next summer.

Thank you, the Taylor family.

Great location - super close to the beach and boardwalk! Perfect for people with pets, including large dogs, which is difficult to find in a vacation rental. We had a great time and would have stayed longer, if we could have!
