About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12-18)

Our home is oceanfront in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. It is an older style cottage built in the 1940's and we added a third floor and renovated in 2003. There are great views with beautiful porches and decks overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. In the Spring of 2008, the ground floor was added to the rental making it a full house rental. Full kitchen was renovated on middle floor in 2011 with dishwasher and garbage disposal. Two efficiency kitchens on other two floors. Bathrooms in the old part of the cottage were renovated with new tile showers in 2016.

The ground floor does have a separate entrance and is filled with games for the kids, a retro sofa converting lounger, a pool table/air hockey table and a big screen TV with DVD. It also has two bedrooms and one bath, all in beautiful bright beachy colors. A new frontloading washer and dryer were added to this floor in 2016.

The middle floor has a full kitchen and family room with a queen sleeper sofa, one queen bedroom, one full bedroom and one full bathroom. There is a wonderful open porch with a swing, rockers, and a table for eating or playing games. There are two outdoor showers; an open shower on the walkway from the beach to rinse off sand, and a closed hot and cold shower to enjoy your daily shower!

The top floor has one queen bedroom, one twin to king trundle bedroom, and a sunroom with a queen sleeper sofa, and two full bathrooms. All rooms have ocean views. There is a beautiful deck from the bedroom and a sunroom with a queen sleeper. There is a lockout option with entrances both internally and externally to both of the top two floors.

The house will sleep 12 people in beds, and another 6 people on sofa beds!

This house is located on the north end of Carolina Beach, a quieter and more relaxing part of the beach. The Boardwalk, fishing pier and charter boats are all within walking distance. Enjoy the many restaurants, kid's activities, and just strolling on the beach! Bike, chair, umbrella and boat rentals are all within one mile of the house. There is a private deck and walkway to the beach, a brick grill and fireplace to cook out, and everything you need to have a wonderful relaxing vacation! There are free summer concerts each month as well as a wonderful Seafood Blues and Jazz Festival in October.

The NC Aquarium is a short drive as well as the USS NC Battleship Memorial and historic Wilmington! You can take a beautiful 30 minute ferry ride from Fort Fisher, just a few miles away, to Southport, another historic and beautiful town on the water. There are wonderful restaurants and antique shops in historic Southport. Come and enjoy our wonderful vacation home! We vacation there too, so you can count on it being well kept!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We moved from Virginia to the Wilmington area in 1991. We fell in love with the old beach cottages in Carolina Beach and soon found one that was a 'great fixer-upper'. We did some cosmetic changes and enjoyed the house for one year before Hurricanes Bertha and Fran hit! We had extensive damage, but were able to salvage the house and maintain it's 1940's charm with an updated look. Later in 2003, we added a third floor to the house and have been renting to many return renters since that time. The house is in a great area of Carolina Beach, the north end, where many families vacation and close enough but far enough away from the boardwalk area to minimize noise. Every other year, the town renourishes the beach, so in the off years, the beach erosion can be significant. We love Mimi's cottage, named after my (Kelly's) mom, and appropriate since my parents own the house with us. We know that you will enjoy staying here in the quaintness of an old beach cottage with bright modern colors and fabulous views!

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach, NC, USA:
Avi was working in Carolina Beach when we moved to the area, and we lived here for the first year. We then moved into Wilmington but missed the beach and soon started looking for property that we could fix up. We loved the area because it was far enough from Wilmington to feel like we were on vacation, but close enough to drive home if we needed. We love the uncrowded beaches and the 'old' feel of the beach. It reminds me of childhood visits to the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will enjoy the benefit of this oceanfront property with easy access to the beach, a nice parking pad with a deck area off of the walkway to the beach with a brick charcoal grill and outdoor fireplace, outdoor showers,one with both hot and cold water, a nice tanning deck on the top floor. You can easily walk to the north end pier to fish or eat, or to the Boardwalk where there are great shops, amusement rides, bike and other vehicle rentals, and an exciting nightlife. The NC Aquarium is about a 5 mile drive, as is the ferry over to Southport. Wilmington is only about a 15 minute drive where there are wonderful restaurants, sightseeing, film studio tours, carriage rides, and a wonderful downtown riverwalk.Our house has been a host to many weddings. We are one of only a few single family houses left at the beach. We have a large parking pad that works well with tents and tables, and we offer offsite parking at our hotel if you can provide shuttle service for your guests. We also have other properties in close proximity that can house other guests within walking distance.
