About the property

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEW " SERVICE FEE" THAT VRBO IS CHARGING, PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECTLY AT KACEYCHAPP@GMAIL.COM

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.

About Kacey Zucchino

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.

Kacey Zucchino purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house unique

Bright, airy and roomy with modern amenities, just a block and half from the beach, yet in a quiet, friendly, family neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Every just feel like you need to get to some place quiet. As an artist and yoga instructor I have found my Oasis. The short walk to the beach and the open stretch of sand where I can walk for hours. Thank you

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying at this property. It was clean,neat and well equipped. We got a lot of rain on my trip and this was a very comfortable place to wait out the storm. Quiet neighborhood but short walk to the beach. I would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Rain can put a "damper" on a trip! I hope you found the stash of games and cards, not the same as the beach, but still relaxing. Thank you for the nice comments, I look forward to your return.

Best Beach House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four has stayed in this house for three consecutive years. It's clean, quiet and comfortable. It's an easy less than five minute walk to the beach. The beaches are wonderful and not crowded. It's very convenient and easy to get to the Carolina Beach attractions - by either car or bicycle. I strongly recommend this house and Carolina Beach.

A very nice family destination

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great condition and clean upon arrival

The owner was very cordial and helpful.

It would be nice if some beach equipment was provided, chairs, umbrella boogie boards.

Otherwise a very comfortable and well kept house.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you liked the house. I do love to communicate with my renters, and wish you had mentioned your desire for beach equipment. There is a letter on the refrigerator that I ask all guests to read, and it has the information and the combination for the deck box downstairs. There are beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards in there. So sorry you didn't see it. Next time!

Lovely house steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three days in Kacey's lovely, airy, spaceous beach cottage. The house had everything we needed and was very nicely decorated and clean.

The weather didn't fully cooperate, but we had the big porch to hang out, and were so close to the beach we could make the most of every sunny opportunity. The house is in a quiet relaxing neighborhood, and only a few minutes from Carolina Beach amenities. For the price, the situation and the quality, this house is a steal and we highly recommend it.
