About Chris Martin

We live in Durham, NC and have been visiting the North Carolina Coastal Region for over 25 years. When we decided to purchase a second home it was natural to head to the beach. Carolina Beach has lots of amenities and a home town feel that we love, but is so close to Wilmington we can easily go into town for a change of scenery if desired.

Chris Martin purchased this house in 2011

Why Chris Martin chose Carolina Beach

Rhonda, our realtor, who is great, saved this house for last. So, after a long day of checking out properties we drove down Canal Drive. When we saw the views from nearly every room in our home we fell in love. It was ours in less than a month and we go to the beach and enjoy our home on a regular basis.

What makes this house unique

The elevator helps since my parents also visit often. We love sitting on one the many decks reading in the morning sun, watching the waves on the ocean or watching the sun setting on the canal. This place is special and we want to share it with you!!

Fabulous Ocean and Canal Views at Carolina Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

The house was very clean and most accommodating. Location was convenient to the beach and boardwalk

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful vacation with our family and friends! The house had everything we needed and more! It is absolutely beautiful with great accommodations and updated decor. The most beautiful views from every direction you turned - ocean view from back decks to canal views from front decks.

Very quiet surroundings yet conveniently located to boardwalk and restaurants. We hope to come back to the same location next summer!

Clean, well-stocked, great views of ocean and canal

  • 5 of 5

Had a family vacation in June. Our experience was completely positive. Communications with the owner was excellent and responses to all questions were prompt. There are great views from the top floor of both the ocean and canal. My only recommendation is to upgrade the grill.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am replacing the grill with a larger one for next year. The grills only last a year or two in the salt air. Hope you consider coming back next year. Thanks, Chris

Another Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Three years running, and this house does not disappoint! The views, the location, and the convenience of this beautiful home is ideal for our beach-going needs. The entire family remarks on this perfect location and always discusses booking again before we leave!

It is too presumptuous and disrespectful to say "home sweet home"? We hope not because it felt like coming home. This year we were again greeted by the big expansive windows in this beach-themed house that afforded us the most gorgeous views of Carolina Beach and the canal. We made the most of all six decks and appreciated being so close to the Atlantic. My father (and well, all us--but especially my father) remains ever grateful for the elevator, which creates ease of access from entry to every floor of this four-story wonder. Without a care for parking, we had access to everything--with the Boardwalk a bike ride or golf cart's jaunt away from the house. We could even see fireworks from the top deck. This house is in the perfect location, and we could not ask for more conscientious and concerned owners. We are so grateful for such a wonderful place to create family memories that will last a lifetime. Until next year...
