Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + Living Room-Sleeper Sofa, 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.

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 6 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" LED TV with DirecTV , Second bedroom has a queen bed, and one queen sofa sleeper in the living room. 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.

We are located at the 700 block of Carolina Beach Ave. N. and on the nicest section of beach with easy access next to the building and a short 7 blocks from the boardwalk and boat basin.

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 Southern Coast

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 feel and 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.

Nice, clean and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

This a 2nd level unit of a 6-unit standalone condo on Carolina Beach. The unit is very recently updated, immaculately clean and generally well equipped. As beachfront rentals go, this one is on the better end of "livability" but on the low end of "beachfront."

Carolina Beach is an extremely densely built-up beach and is very crowded. Access to the beach is often not direct and for this property, required walking out to the road, around another home and using a public access. This property has no direct beach access. As a North Carolina family, this was a departure from our experience and now something we will be avoiding. Access to the beach felt quite "second row" but the view from the balcony was nice.

The one other drawback to the home for us were the beds. Both beds have middle to lower quality mattresses (thin top padding and hard) and the sleeper sofa was terribly uncomfortable, even when compared to other sleeper sofas. Linens provided were of good quality and otherwise we were quite comfortable.

Owner's Response: I appreciate each guests feedback as all is subjective. In the 10 years I have rented this condo I have NEVER received a review that complained about the comfort of the beds or took issue with beach access. In fact many reviews complimented the comfort of the mattresses. All furniture, furnishings, and linens are updated regularly with quality replacements. Beach access is clearly described in the condo description along with a picture and is no more than 30' to the south of the building. I make every effort to make each guests stay a 5 star experience as can be reviewed in the 50 plus 5 star reviews but clearly I cannot meet everyones needs.

Excellent facility for four.

  • 4 of 5

I purchased an air mattress for my grand children and I suggest the batteries for electronics are checked more frequently. There were no bed linens for the pull out. I did purchase a blowup and bed linens.

Overall the condo was excellent and comfortable.

The ocean view is great and has easy access to the beach. The new construction of the board walk was impressive.

I hope in time the boardwalk shops continue to improve their esthetics and offerings to compare better with other boardwalks along the Atlantic coast.

Owner's Response: I always appreciate feedback from our guests. If something is not to your satisfaction when you arrive, I am always available to answer questions. This would have resolved the linens issue for the sofa sleeper as they are always stored with the comforter in the master closet and checked by my cleaning lady upon each cleaning. Unfortunately batteries can sometimes be an issue. Batteries are replaced at the beginning of each season and remotes checked periodically by my cleaning lady throughout the year. On occasion we have had batteries stolen by guests and replaced with their dead batteries. This rarely happens but creates an issue for everyone. Fortunately the majority of my guests treat the property with care allowing for a smooth turnover each time. Feedback is vital to make sure I can provide a 5 star experience with each stay.

Nicely Renovated Ocean Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at several places in Carolina Beach, but this one was the nicest so far. The newly renovated condo had some really nice upgrades. The kitchen was stocked for all our cooking needs. Will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 Star Review. I strive to maintain this property to the highest level providing guests with an experience that I look for when I rent through VRBO. Exceptionally clean, modern, and comfortable is what each guests receives when they rent my condo. I hope to see you again.
