Overview

About the property

Beachfront Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Beds, 2 Bath (Sleeps 6-7)

Booking now for Summer/Fall 2017! Sands V Carolina This is a Direct Beach/Ocean/Beach First Floor Beach Front Condo! Why settle for "Old" when you can have "New"? New Bathrooms (All tiled stand-up shower in MBR with granite counter-tops, new guest bath-tub and tiled wall/granite counter-top), granite counter-top in kitchen..... .Everyone Loves the EXTRA Huge Beach Front Deck that leads to both the Master bedroom (King Bed) and Living room with amazing views of the beach/ocean. This has been newly renovated and is decorated in bright and beautiful beach colors. Most of our guests spend much of there time on our huge extra large covered deck that has a porch swing, high sitting captain chairs and high up outdoor table to enjoy the view, dine, or play games. Even if their is rain, you can sit out on the deck enjoying the beach/ocean sights. Just below the deck is an outdoor shower and in the grass area, we have a BBQ to enjoy preparing your food outside. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, full private bath, and sliding glass doors to the deck. You can lie in bed and watch the sunrise over the ocean. The second bedroom has a brand new queen bed as well as a bunk bed with futon double sofa bed on bottom and twin on top. This guest room has its own sliding glass door, overlooking the 'full size' pool. Also, if Fire Safety is important to you (Could save your life) - FOR YOUR SAFETY: This building has just been updated with a new modern fire protection system that includes fireproofed fire resistant sheet-rock underneath building, heat detection system, temporal fire alarm signals/sounds and smoke detectors in each condo unit. Very few condo buildings on the beach have fire protection! Also, new in 2017 - The entire outside of building has been upgraded with new siding/railing....

Enjoy watching dolphins swim in the surf and wake up to the sunrise over the ocean. The beach stretches for miles, great for long walks or a jog.

This condo has a fully equipped kitchen with new granite counter tops, two roomy bedrooms, 2 full baths (Newly Remodeled) , brand new queen size fold out coach in the living room, and a washer and dryer for your convenience. The unit has new kitchen appliances (stove,oven, microwave and dishwasher), has new tile flooring, new blankets, and is equipped for simple housekeeping. For your entertainment, the condo has a Flat Screen TV w/DVD and library of great movies. Situated on the first floor means you don't have to climb stairs all day, but still have the fantastic views of the beach/ocean. But the best area is the amazingly huge deck (12' x 24') overlooking the ocean: the perfect spot for outdoor living, offering shade from the sun, or cover on a rainy day.

Within a short drive or walking distance you'll find plenty: boardwalk and arcade, ice cream shops, seafood restaurants, a state park, a small lake with paddle boats and a paved path all the way around, beach shops, and bike rentals, as well as a discount variety store, thrift store, and the supermarket. See fireworks (Thursday nights in the summer) from the beach, and free outdoor family movies at the nearby lake on Sunday nights.

Visit the North Carolina Aquarium located at the south end of the island, or take a short ferry ride to Southport for the day, where you can enjoy quaint shopping, sight seeing and wonderful local seafood dining on the water.

Historic Wilmington, on the Cape Fear river only 20 minutes away, is where you'll find the USS North Carolina Battleship, ghost walks, horse drawn carriage rides, boat excursions, waterfront restaurants, antique shops, and more.

Carolina Beach restaurants range from elegant to family style. A short walk to the Ocean Grill Restaurant and Tiki Bar offers outdoor bar service and live music while overlooking the ocean. Of course, no trip to Carolina Beach is complete without a visit to the Boardwalk. Grab a famous Britt's doughnuts and coffee or some fudge, and enjoy the Ferris wheel and carnival rides throughout the summer.

Visit The Carolina Beach Marina and take a sightseeing cruise or charter fishing expedition. Anglers, the fishing is great! Fish on the beach, from the pier, catch a head boat, charter a boat, or launch your own at a public launch. There are many water sports to enjoy. You can rent or bring your own equipment for snorkeling, surfing and boating adventures.

In addition to the many parks, dog parks, trails and bike paths, the Carolina Beach State Park is nearly 1,000 acres of exploration and trails, including a boat launch area.

This town of about 5,600 friendly residents offers a quaint, vintage atmosphere, sure to transport you back to your childhood days at the beach. Yet it provides every modern convenience you could hope for and you’ll be welcomed as one of their own! If you love the surf, sand, and long walks on the beach, this comfortable and convenient vacation condo is the place for you!

About Michael

My wife and I love the Beach. This is our getaway beach front home that provides the relaxation and comfort -that get's us away from it all! Every year we upgrade the condo making it better and better each year. We listen to the many guests that have stayed here year after year and upgrade to their expectations. Like most of our guests, we spend most of the time on the "huge deck" - very unique in Carolina Beach. Their we can see the dolphins (if we are fortunate), enjoy our morning coffee/bfast and wine/dinner in the evenings. Also, unique is that we have a 2nd deck off the guest room that is directly over the full size pool area. Great if you have children/grand children as you can watch them from the condo. We hope you enjoy the condo as much as we do and our many returning guests each year!

Michael purchased this condo in 2011

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Vacation was amazing.  The condo was clean and decorated just like we would have our own home.  The kids enjoyed the pool immensely and most of the week we had it to ourselves.  The view was breathtaking.  We spent many mornings and finished off many evenings sitting on the deck and enjoying the ocean.  Also it was very nice that most of the shops and local places to eat were within walking distance or just a few minutes drive from the condo.  Thank you so much for sharing this with us and we would love to come back again!

Great Property with Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. The outside of the building was recently renovated and everything appeared to be very clean including the pool area. The public beach access is right next to the building made it very easy to get to the beach. It is a convenient distance to the Tiki Bar! The views of the ocean each day were amazing. The condo was clean and well prepared for our stay! Wish we could have stayed longer!

Best Beach Front Condo in Carolina Beach

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this condo stands apart from all the other beach front condos we have stayed in. Loved the large deck, new bathrooms, new/modern looking outside of building and most of all the full sized pool right off the guest room deck. We have come to Carolina Beach every year for the last 20+ years and stayed at many condos, this by far stands out as the best. We have found that most of the other condos on the beach have not been updated like this one. Love the king size bed in MBR with it's own sliding glass door to huge deck. We can watch/hear the ocean waves without getting out of bed. The porch swing and high tables on the porch are a big bonus that we also enjoyed. We now found the beach front condo we will be staying at for the next 20+ years. Thank You!

Great view!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our week of vacation here. The view is great, few steps to the ocean or the pool. The deck is awesome! Great swinging while looking over the ocean. We also grilled using the ocean front grills that were available or you can take your own and use in the spot. We had 4 adults and a baby. Perfect space for that. We were able to park underneath the building so the shade was nice. We would definitely stay here again. Great vacation.

Great condo-with a caveat

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in a Sands V Unit at the end of May and overall really enjoyed the stay. The condo that we stayed in was very nice. It was stocked with dishes, games, books, and movies. There is also a decent-sized porch that you can see the ocean from. I would say there was nothing that specifically set it apart from any other condo, but there was also nothing that I could complain about.

The outside was a bit of a different story. There was a lot of construction/renovation going on with the outside of the building-which is needed because the outside honestly leaves a bit to be desired. This would have been problematic if it was a busier time of year (which is why it's happening how, I'm sure) because so many of the few parking spots were blocked off or had building supplies in them. There is also a wood lattice storage for each room outside, where the owners have floats, buckets, beach boards, etc for the guests. Our storage room happened to be pretty dirty and dingy, which wasn't a big deal to us because we didn't really use it. But, I could see how other guests may be annoyed by it because it was packed, dirty, and full of sand. Hopefully, once all the work is done, the exterior of the building will match the interior in terms of quality.

In spite of my second paragraph being much longer than the first, I still give the room 4/5 stars. The work being done is temporary and the exterior of the building is likely out of the control of any individual owner.

Owner's Response: Sorry, your stay occurred during the final week of construction. Outside Construction is now Complete! Over a 1/4 million dollars spent on updating the entire outside of the building including new siding, railings.... (LOOKS LIKE NEW!). Also, if Fire Safety is important to you (Could save your life) - FOR YOUR SAFETY: This building has just been updated with a new modern fire protection system that includes fireproofed fire resistant sheet-rock underneath building, heat detection system, temporal fire alarm signals/sounds and smoke detectors in each condo unit. (Very few condo buildings on the beach have fire protection!) Thanks for letting us know about outside storage, the construction residue can now be cleaned out. Parking is no longer an issue as all the construction equipment is gone. Inside, we updated and have new bathrooms (All tiled stand-up shower in MBR with granite counter-tops, new guest bath-tub and tiled wall/granite counter-top), granite counter-top in kitchen..... .Everyone Loves the EXTRA Huge Beach Front Deck and the full sized pool. Most condo complexes have only small wading pools if they have a pool at all - ours is FULL SIZE. When comparing other BEACH FRONT condos, this is what our guests have found that has this condo stand above the others. Glad you enjoyed the condo despite the "now completed" outside construction. Yes, we try to stock the condo with games/books... to make your stay that much better. Please come back and enjoy the new completed outside of building!

Another great beach trip at Sands V, Unit 1D

  • 5 of 5

Another relaxing vacation at Carolina Beach! Weather was perfect which led to a lot of porch-sitting just enjoying the ocean. The higher chairs give us that direct ocean view without having to look through porch rails - and the chairs are so nice. The master bedroom and bath were very comfortable. Might sound picky, but the shower head is GREAT - not one of those puny ones that you have to move around to even wet your face. Kitchen had everything we needed and the AC kept us cool. Went on an adventure every day and ate at a different restaurant every day - pizza at Michaelangelo's, seafood at Bowman's, awesome burger at Kure Beach Diner and for the 1st time lunch at Provision Company in Southport. Have lived in NC all my life but just started going to Carolina Beach in the last 10 years and fell in love with the slower pace. (Full disclosure: we do not go in the summer months at all so can't speak for the traffic, noise, crowds during those months.) We stay in this condo several times a year and just love it. This visit we were surprised and very impressed with all the upgrades made on the exterior. The condo is always clean and ready for us to start relaxing immediately. The owner Michael is very nice and will return your call promptly if you have any questions. Highly recommend Sands V, Unit 1D.

Map

Car: recommended

Beautiful Large Family Beach/Ocean. The full size pool is directly off the guest bedroom (sliding glass door). Short walk down to the Tiki Bar (bands/music/great rood) overlooking the ocean, but far enough away for quiet. Many restaurants, ice cream shops, and markets are just a short walk away. The nearby lake has paddle boats, walking trail, and free outdoor family movies on Sunday nights throughout the summer. See Thursday night fireworks from the beach (in season). The area is nice to walk around and safe to ride bikes.

Carolina Beach is just south/east of Wilmington, NC. There are lots of things to do and see - museums, state parks, ferry rides, lakes, running and biking trails, tennis, golf, several triathlons in the area, music and food festivals, boardwalk, piers, and so much more. At the same time, this is a very laid back, relaxed, and family-friendly coastal town. So, What are you waiting for?
