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.
