About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths Premier Luxury Oceanfront Condo

If you're looking for a high end luxurious condo that is different than the rest of the condos at the beach you have found it.

New Signature Select Beautyrest Mattress's, linens, and comforters installed in both bedrooms installed January 2018.

Wow! What a view. Sit back and relax on the oceanfront balcony of this contemporary two bedroom, one with an ocean view, floor to ceiling remodeled condo. Enjoy the ocean breeze, sights, and sounds of the sea.

This condo is my personal unit and has been updated with hardwood and tile floors, granite countertops, new living room furniture, bedroom furniture, beds, and fresh paint. A true Premier Luxury Oceanfront Condo in the heart of Carolina Beach. This is one of the nicest 2 bedroom oceanfront condos in Carolina Beach! Our past guest reviews back this up.

This unit is well maintained and has an extensive water color art collection of coastal wild birds by Christine Reichow in all rooms.

This unit has many amenities to make your beach vacation very enjoyable. We have DirecTV with the choice package, DVR, HD signal and you will watch all that on a 50" Samsung 4K SUHD flat screen TV. We also have a collection of DVD's for you to use. Each bedroom has been outfitted with iHome bluetooth FM stereo clock radios with speakerphone and USB charging capabilities. The unit also includes wireless internet (access instructions provided with the welcome letter 2 weeks prior to arrival). The condo will sleep up to 4 and has a full kitchen with new appliances including ice maker, two new full bathrooms, and new heating and cooling system. Assigned parking at the building for two vehicles. Easy beach access is next to the building.

Master bedroom has a queen bed and 46" LCD TV with DirecTV , Second bedroom has a queen bed, 570 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and plush thick towels are provided for your stay. We think of everything so you don't have to!

This quiet 6 unit complex is sure to make your vacation to the beach relaxing and peaceful.

When my guests checkout my cleaning lady spends 3 hours getting the property ready for the next guests.

We have all experienced the superficial cleaning at hotels and rental properties which look clean but upon closer inspection you know it is not.

My goal is to have my rental property cleaned to a level that exceeds your expectations.

We are located 7 blocks north of the boardwalk and fishing pier. The condo has easy access next to the building to get on the beach and this section is one of the best.

Enjoy your stay at my premier oceanfront property

About Rick Reichow

I grew up in the upper midwest and now enjoy my winters much more along coastal NC with my wife and three children. I currently live just a short 10 minute drive from the beach condo, in Wilmington along the Cape Fear River.

My family and I enjoy the beach and all the activities available around the property.

If an issue ever comes up I can normally handle it quite quickly based on my proximity to the condo.

Rick Reichow purchased this condo in 2006

Why Rick Reichow chose Carolina Beach

We purchased this property so we would have easy beach access and we really enjoy the small town feel of Carolina Beach.

We decided to completely renovate our condo in the style of what I look for when I rent on VRBO. I am super picky and I want a modern freshly renovated property which makes my stay more relaxed and enjoyable.

I hope you find this to be true for you during your stay.

What makes this condo unique

When you stay oceanfront, clearly you are choosing a property for the view.

I purchased this property because this condo unlike many has a 9' wall of windows that enhances the view allowing for a very open sense of space. The main living area (kitchen and living room) are in this space.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Even though the weather wasn't exactly beach-y on Saturday, we had a great time. The place was great. Clean, everything worked and was very comfortable. Had everything we needed.

And we appreciated the fact that when you said "updated", it meant updated!

My wife is a realtor and has seen plenty that were described that way but were most definitely not. We would recommend this to anyone who asks.

Could Not Have Been Better!!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Condo and exactly as described.

The whole experience could not have been better.

The whole place was exceptionally clean and tidy. It is clear the owners are making every effort to create a terrific rental experience. They thought of everything. From the plush towels, great pillows and bedding, beautiful place settings and easy to use electronics, this condo has it all.

Highly recommended as a family or couple get away.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your review. My goal is to make every guest rental a 5 star experience. I rent on VRBO and am very fussy and created a rental that reflects what I want when I rent. Anything less than a 5 star experience is a failure on my part and why my listing consistently rates at the highest level.

Carolina Beach Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very nice, thoughtfully furnished, sparkling clean, and the ocean view is beautiful. Both the owner and property manager were quickly responsive to our questions. Although it was made clear in the documents provided that these things were not included, my suggestion is that an iron, shampoo, conditioner, hand and dishwashing soap be provided, as well as kitchen towels and additional bath towels. It's a bit inconvenient to have to go shopping for these things when every other property I've stayed at includes them as a matter of course. We left everything we brought to hopefully make things easier for the next guest. We would definitely return if our travels bring us back to Wilmington.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your response. We strive to have most things that are needed. Extra towels are located in the spare room, dishwashing soap under the sink. We purchase Costco sized items and sometimes they do disappear. I will add an iron based on your review. 5 stars is what we want for every guest and I will adjust so your next stay is a solid 5 stars.

Exactly what we were looking for in a "couples retreat". Can walk to anything but very quiet. Will definitely be back if we don't buy a place of our own!

Great condo right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in this adorable condo with our son and daughter-in-law. We were in Carolina Beach to attend a wedding. There were wedding festivities going on all weekend, so we didn't really have a lot of time in the condo. The condo is extremely clean and very well equipped. I would highly recommend this condo.

Loved the condo. It was clean, quiet and exactly what I was looking for. The livingroom fan was on when we arrived so we left it on.
