Property description

Relax and enjoy cool ocean beaches and gorgeous views at this bright, airy 3-bedroom, 2-bath home just a block and a half from the beach.
An open floor plan and vaulted ceilings let in abundant natural light. Enjoy majestic sunsets from our wide front porch. Cook your own meals in our fully-equipped kitchen or on our barbeque grill. You’re close enough to glimpse the beach, yet tucked away in a quiet, friendly family neighborhood. You can walk to the pier for fishing, sightseeing, or a quick meal or drink. Flatscreen HD televisions, DVRs and DVD players in the living room and master bedroom. Free WIFI. Books and board games available. Ample private, covered parking. Save money by bringing your own linens, or rent from a recommended linen service. Home has a king in the master, a double in a bedroom and two twins in the third bedroom. We provide pillows, blankets and covers. We don't charge a cleaning fee. We ask that renters leave the house as you found it, broom clean and tidied. Our cleaner will come in afterward to prepare for the next guest. If extra cleaning is needed it will be charged to your deposit. You’ll feel comfortable and pampered in this lovely cottage.

We’re located on Carolina Beach, a scenic barrier island with a village atmosphere. There’s swimming, surfing, boating, kayaking, surf and deep sea fishing, hiking and ocean cruises. The beaches are clean, wide and uncrowded. Our 1,500-square-foot cottage is minutes from the marina, lively night spots and fine dining – plus shopping, recreation, craft shops and a Saturday farmers’ market. In summer, carnival rides and a midway will tempt the young and young at heart. Free Thursday night fireworks and Friday night concerts on the Carolina Beach boardwalk (one of the last beach boardwalks on the East Coast). Our home is a short walk from Freeman Park, a state park where you can build campfires and drive the beach in 4WD vehicles. We’re a short drive from the state aquarium, the historic Civil War battlefield and earthen batteries at Ft. Fisher, the Southport ferry, and Wilmington, a lively port city that offers museums, historic sites, bistros, bars and restaurants.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Originally from Carolina Beach, we recently bought our dream beach house and have made it our home away from home. We enjoy natural surroundings and simple pleasures. We like to explore our neighborhood here on foot, from the beach to the inlet to the wetlands. We often bike to the Carolina Beach boardwalk, the farmers’ market, craft stores and to grocery shopping. We think you’ll feel right at home here as soon as you feel the sea breeze.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Bright, airy and roomy with modern amenities, just a block and half from the beach, yet in a quiet, friendly, family neighborhood.
