About Chris Saba

My wife and I have been in the business of building (I am a licensed General Contractor) and maintaining rental property in the Wilmington area since the early 90's. We are now the proud owners of two beach homes in Carolina Beach starting with 'A Summer's Rest', a wonderful second row beach home that we built from scratch in 2011. With the overwhelming rental popularity of that home, we now would like to present 'A Summer's Rest 2'. This is home has just recently been remodeled (summer of 2013) and is ready for occupancy. We are a local family who enjoys using our beach homes when not in use. We know you'll enjoy which ever home you choose and we would like to thank you for considering staying with us.

Chris Saba purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris Saba chose Southern Coast

This home is truly in one of the best spots on the beach. Besides the private beachfront lot that sits in front of the home, the location and proximity to the downtown area (bars, shopping, food, entertainment), lake (paddle boats, free Sunday night movies under the stars), shopping and food (ice cream and snack bar across the street) make it ideal. With only a short walk to all, you can forget about needing the car to get basic needs met, as well, the kids will have a fun and safe place to play (private lot) without constant need for supervision. The dunes protect them from being seen from the beach and the home keeps them from being near the street.

What makes this house unique

A quiet, private and safe family location smack dab in middle of the historic Cape fear region, you can't go wrong!

This house is everything we could have asked for. We wanted to be right on the beach and away from the hustle and bustle, but also a very quick ride into town. The house is very clean, well stocked with dishware and plenty of outdoor space to lounge. The BBQ is a nice addition and the volleyball court is a lot of fun. The owner was very responsive via text and email leading up to the trip, addressing all of our concerns. We are looking forward to coming back next summer!

This was a clean and roomy home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, relaxing stay. I was able to go running in the morning and walk to the boardwalk for some shopping. I will definitely pick this house again when I come back to Carolina Beach.

Gorgeous ocean view to wake up to and charming home

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely charming! Plenty of room for the 6 of us. Lots to do in the area. And an amazing view of the ocean. We loved the fire pit at night to relax and have a cocktail while listening to the ocean. Perfect home! We are already looking into when we can go back!

Favorite Beach VRBO Rental, By Far!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a family trip for our 5 year anniversary. We had the BEST time! I absolutely loved it. We went during off season so places like Pop's and Britt's Donuts were closed however the beach was not crowded and it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. We were also able to take the girls for ice cream on the boardwalk which they loved. We ate dinner at Hang 10 Grill which is 2 secs up the road and it was delicious. This is the IDEAL house for off season as the house itself had so many things to do the week went by too quick! The weather was gorgeous and the beach access was easy and quick. The kids also had a great time playing in the sand in the backyard. We have 2 small children and it was awesome to be able to have some adult time at the fire pit and patio after they went down for the night. The beds are super comfortable and the layout of the house was simple, clean, and updated. I cannot say enough great things about this house. The location is great and you can walk to a tiki bar and restaurants. There is a gas station close by if you need something quick or it's a short drive to the Food Lion. The owner is wonderful to work with and the property was in great and welcoming condition for our arrival. We will absolutely be back. Thank you again!

Well-maintained comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time in this rental house. It has a beautiful view and is right next to a walkway to the beach which is so convenient when you have little ones to carry. It was quiet and in a great location. Loved being able to walk across the street to Pop's Homemade Ice Cream. It's also close to the boardwalk so we were able to enjoy the Thursday night fireworks show from the porch.

The house was clean and well stocked with essentials. I had all the tools to cook a pancake breakfast! There's also some fun stuff in storage. We enjoyed the use of the umbrellas, beach toys for the kids, and riding the waves with the boogie board!

We really loved the layout of the house. The kitchen and living room are open to each other and there is a hallway to the bedrooms and baths. The master bedroom is very spacious (as is the master bath) and had plenty of room for a crib. The room with the bunk beds was a huge hit with the kids. The 3rd bedroom with the queen was a little cramped, but still nice to have a queen over a double. Loved how big the driveway is; we were able to fit all 3 cars.

Thank you for renting your home to us. We felt very at home and made some great memories!

Great summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is cute, comfy, and has everything you need for a sweet stay at the beach. We especially loved the backyard; perfect for playing bocce ball in the early morning and the evening. Also, the walk right across the street to pops for ice cream was very convenient. Owners were great to work with. Chris was quick to respond to all my questions.
