Property description

Hall Hacienda is our 2nd home which we share during the summer. It is less than 10 years old and renovated in summer 2011 with new appliances, paint, etc. It is the left half of a 2 level duplex, with a full time family next door. 1800 sq. ft.

Downstairs features a large family room w/ 60' flat-screen HD LG TV, Direct TV cable and wireless internet. There is a modern kitchen and dining table for 6-8. there are new Sanyo stacking washer/drier combo. In the back on the main floor is a full bath and a bedroom w/ a queen bed.

Upstairs on the front is a large master w/ cable and king bed. Walk out onto the private deck and swing and watch the ocean, smell the salt spray and watch the people ride down the street. The master bath has a walk-in shower and separate tub. Double sinks w/ large counter make it easy to get ready for the beach or an evening out.

Upstairs are 2 other bedrooms. One w/ queen bed and the other w/ twin and roll under trundle. They share a bathroom w/ shower.

On the bottom level is parking for 4 cars in a single line. There is an outdoor shower to wash off after a day on the beach.

Beach access is at the end of the block. (You might find another 'private' one a bit closer if you watch the neighbors.)

A short walk away is Carolina Beach Park Lake where there is paddle boat rental, playground, and usually an outside kid-friendly movie (Toy Story, etc) each weekend. It also hosts the Saturday farmer's market.

Easy access (0.6 mi. ) to the Carolina Beach boardwalk with a small carnival throughout the summer and weekly fireworks. There are many great restaurants and bars with live entertainment most evenings. Do not miss Britt's Doughnuts!

Car: Necessary

Carolina Beach is a small community working hard to expand it's welcome as a family vacation spot. The Boardwalk features weekly summer fireworks, regular live entertainment, and an amusement park each summer w/ rides, games, and carnival food.

At the lake you can find the weekly Saturday Farmer's Market, kid friendly outside movies, and paddle-boats. There are sometimes special events, including an annual fundraiser for animal adoption, chowder cook-off, etc..

Walk across the street and throw in a line for surf fishing (license required, pretty cheap) or book an offshore trip from the marina. Stop by one of the tackle shops or the Kure Beach Pier to see what is biting.

You can take your 4-wheel drive on Freeman Park or rent a golf cart and explore the area.

The choice of local restaurants grows each season. The Boardwalk features Britt's Doughnuts (a local favorite!) and several bars, including the Silver Dollar, often w/ live local bands. Food choices range from Seafood, Mexican, Italian, Thai, Southern, Sushi, and sandwiches. A quick drive to Wilmington will give even more options, including some excellent 'foodie' selections. We LOVE to eat and can give some great suggestions! (Local Seafood restaurants good for fried, OK for other, but for the best choices head into town.)

Take the quick drive to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Historic Downtown Wilmington, Jungle Rapids Waterpark, Ride the Riverboat, or see see one of multiple local live theater groups. You might even notice some locations from 'Hollywood East,' home of TV shows Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Revolution, Under the Dome, the pilot for Revenge, Sleepy Hollow, and IRON MAN 3. You might run into a 'Star' at dinner or even in the grocery store.

Have a great stay!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are both from North Carolina and live in Wilmington. We have 4 grown children and love to travel.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach, NC, USA:
We recently downsized our home in Wilmington and wanted a place to escape for long weekends and to be our 'extra bedrooms' for family visits. Just the quick trip across the bridge seems to come with a change in attitude. It creates a vacation while still essentially at home. We bought this home for us, but we rent it in the summer when no family is in town or we are working.
