About the property

Bring your four legged family member on vacation to this clean, Pet friendly condo. Recently renovated, new furniture, Hardwood flooring, stainless steel appliances, cabinets, furniture. Both bathrooms just renovated 12/14 - new vanities, reglazed shower, ceramic tile floors - awesome! Great views, spacious, clean. Close to all that Carolina Beach and Wilmington has to offer. Step out of the condo, cross the dunes and you are ready to relax in the sun on the wide beach. Or, enjoy the salt air, endless ocean views and warm breezes with a good book and a drink from the large deck with rocking chairs. Watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine from the west deck.

Master Bedroom has a queen bed and ensuite bath with shower. 2nd Bedroom has 2 Twin beds and there is a queen sleeper sofa in the Living room. There is a full hallway bath.

PLEASE CHECK THE AVAILABILITY CALENDAR PRIOR TO CONTACTING ME, I DO KEEP IT UPDATED. RATES ARE PROVIDED UNDER THE RATE TAB FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE. If this condo is booked, check #974462, 123393 and 284297 - I own them too!

I'm a travel addict and I know how important clean and convenient accommodations are to enjoying a vacation. I'm also love my pet, so I understand wanting to bring pets on vacation. As long as Fido is well behaved and doesn't bark excessively, he or she is welcome.

I've traveled to all 7 continents and extensively in the US.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach: This condo is one of 4 I own at Carolina Beach. Pleasure Island is small enough to provide a relaxed beach atmosphere without over-commercialization. At the same time there is a high enough population in the summer to attract top rate restaurants and entertainment. It is close to Wilmington NC and all that is offered there.

I love spending time in Carolina Beach when my condo's are not rented. I like to hang out on the beach with friends, walk for miles, visit the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, ride my bike and relax with good books. Anytime of year is a great time to visit Carolina Beach. Spring and Fall are actually my favorite times.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: I love waking up to see a brilliant sunrise, and sometimes get to enjoy seeing dolphins playing in the ocean from the front deck. Kayaking with a friend or walking a few miles on the beach all are activities I find very relaxing.

Of course, sometimes it's great to just sit in a beach chair with a cold drink and a good book!

Fort Fisher and the Fort Fisher Aquarium is a good place to connect with nature as well. The island is bike friendly, so be sure and bring or rent bikes while you are here!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have two toddlers and a dog, so being oceanfront is a huge plus so we don’t have to pack up a car or cart our kids across the street to go to the beach every day. The condo was very clean when we arrived and the instructions for check in and check out were very clear and simple. We had no issues during our entire stay.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year I have stayed here and I will book again next year. Condo is well maintained and clean. This the perfect solution for me being able to bring my dog and only one flight of stairs but still a great view.

Wonderful place just steps away from the Ocean. Would definitely stay there again.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the unit that we stayed in. It was very clean when we arrived, and had just about everything we needed. We loved the balcony view of the Ocean and the short steps to get there. Would definitely come back !!!

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

The condo is on a lovely part of Carolina Beach! The view from the balcony is amazing! The condo is a nice size for 4-6 people. Unfortunately the condo was not as clean as rated by previous renters! The dishes were dirty and the floor was covered with dog hair. One of the rocking chairs on the balcony broke while I was sitting on it! Most of the beach chairs and umbrellas were broken!

We shared these concerns with the owner! Hopefully he takes heart and takes care of the issues!

Otherwise we had a great time!

Owner's Response: So sorry this guest had an initial experience where the condo was not clean. For future guests, the instructions clearly state that if something isn't right when you arrive to call me immediately. My cleaning crew is on call after every clean and will be there, usually within 30 minutes, but at a time you choose, to make it right. We employ humans, who sometimes miss things. Sometimes a guest leaves a place particularly dirty and a cleaner will be rushed and not check to be sure all the dishes were cleaned by the prior guest as required. In those rare occasions, we truly want to make it right, but can only do that if guests follow instructions as printed and posted in the condo. Its rare that anything significant is missed, but it happens. I don't want your vacation to be off to a bad start, so call me and let us fix it for you. In this case, it was 2 days into the stay, after a chair broke, that the guest let me know. (The chair has since been replaced) The beach umbrella and chairs are replaced every season. It is possible that some rust will accumulate on the folding chairs after a summer of use. I provide chairs to make it easy on guests to not have to bring them. If any guest has specific requirements for,their chairs, there are several rental companies on the island that can accomodate those needs. I am glad this guest had a good time anyway and hope that in the future, any guest,that experiences a rare cleaning issue would follow the instructions and let me make it right.

Condo was very clean, well furnished and modern. 3 minute walk to the beach along private walkway. Cannot complain about anything. Would stay there again. Good value with a great location.

Nice view but...

  • 3 of 5

The 6 unit beach front home is conveniently located 0.5 mi from the boardwalk and several restaurants. The parking situation takes some getting used to but is easy to navigate once you figure out where the spots are and that you can drive on a gravel path around the back. The view from the unit is wonderful! The unit is an older place but the bedrooms are a decent size, the floors were nice, and although the kitchen is small the countertops and backsplash are a nice touch. We found the sleeper sofa to be very uncomfortable...sinking deep into the cushions when you sat on it; even our toddler had a tough time getting off the couch. The unit is located on the first floor, which is great for getting your luggage or groceries upstairs, but you can hear every step from the neighbor above, especially when he stumbled in at 2 am on the weekends.

We ended up leaving early after we had to kill four giant water bugs on the 5th day of our stay. While we understand that these types of bugs lives close to the water and the unit does spray for bugs, FOUR giant water bugs in less than 24 hrs was too much.

If you like a convenient location and a gorgeous view AND can handle possibly having to deal with the bugs, this place is for you.

Owner's Response: As the reviewer indicated, the coastal areas of NC do have water bugs that live outside. We do everything we can to keep them outside (windows and doors are tight, our HOA sprays the stairs monthly, we spray inside the unit weekly during the summer). Yet, sometimes they come inside. This is more likely if doors and windows are left open or items are set on the ground outside, then brought inside. No other guest has indicated seeing any inside this condo either via review or directly. Unfortunately, this guest didn't let me know about the issue until they were already freaked out and had decided to leave, or I would have sent someone to spray again at their request. I would say that there is a possibility of seeing a water bug or two inside absolutely any house in Carolina Beach or the entire NC Coast. I wouldn't say you should let that keep you away from the view, sun, sand and surf.
