The beaches are clean, wide and uncrowded.

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.

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

Beautiful as always!

  • 5 of 5

Owner is always nice, property is always clean, well kept up, and relaxing beyond belief! We are a returning guest and will more than likely keep it that way! This house is by far the cleanest that we have stayed in over the years! Our kids enjoyed going to the pier and catching sharks, ribbon fish, and flounder. Another family created a treasure hunt. After that buried the bag of gold for their kids they gave us the map and we done the same . We returned it to them and they said that we could keep it but we only felt fair to let someone else enjoy the great experience, so then we gave it to another family and their kids were like WOW! After they were done with it they passed it on and before long the whole beach was doing it! What a great way to make people come together! Carolina Beach and this rental property are the best !!! See you next year!

The beach house was a perfect setting for my family.

  • 5 of 5

what a bright clean roomy setup for my family. We stayed for a week over July 4th holiday. The beach access was great. The house had everything we needed. We loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the ocean breezes. Truly an outstanding experience for me and my family.

Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I,(5 adults, one baby), stayed at this house from June 24th through July 1st 2017 for our vacation. It was the perfect place for us. Everything we wanted or needed was there. The beds were comfortable. It was only a block and a half from the beach. The owner was great to work with. There were house rules, which were very reasonable. Sheets, pillow cases and towels were not provided, which is a good thing in my opinion as we got to bring our own. The house was clean and spacious and made our vacation a WONDERFUL time. I would recommend this house to anybody looking for a reasonably priced place close to the beach. For the record, the pictures don't do the place justice. If we get to go back again next year, this will be our first choice of places to stay!!! Best trip yet!! .........Billy, .....from Kentucky.

Beautifully designed home, size and location! Comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this home. A quick walk to the beach and a quick drive to local restaurants. We absolutely enjoyed the front porch, and the fans were a lovely touch. The beach winds and relaxing rocking chairs were perfect! We will definitely stay here in the future.
