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 Carolina Beach

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!

If you want to wake up and see the ocean every morning while drinking coffee. Or wind down with your favorite beverage and see the sun dancing on the ocean before the sun goes down than this is the place. Clean, and the owner is fantastic. We could not ask for more from a vacation. This is now our destination.

Fun time!

Our family had a wonderful time! The house was a great fit for us. We really enjoyed having the extra sand lot by the beach. My 2 teenagers had fun playing volleyball! Great view! Easy walk to the beach.

A group of us stayed here for Labor Day weekend. We had such a great time! So close to the beach! Loved playing volleyball on the private court. Be sure to check out Pop's Ice Cream and Ocean Grill, which are super close!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We just got home and already missing the beach. Had a wonderful time. It was the perfect location with in walking distance from the boardwalk,ice cream shop and most shops. The beaches was very family friendly not crowded at all. It was myself,my friend, daughter her husband and 4 grandchildren (6,5,3 and 2) there was plenty of room for everyone and the yard was amazing for the kids to play in not having to worry about strangers walking past them or getting to close also all the sand toys and volleyball net while we sat on the porch watching the ocean and talking. The interior of the home gave a nice beach feeling and very comfortable. We arrived a bit early and texted the home owners and they said as soon as the house was ready they would let us know.They let us check in a hour and a half early that was great. We have a lot of great memories made there. There is nothing bad or negative we could say about thier home. Thank you so much for letting us stay in home.

The backyard was awesome for the kids and adults to play games or just hang out. There was so much seating inside and outside which was very convenient for our guests. Love the deck!

Dream Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a girl's weekend away with my college girlfriends. This was an amazing trip! Everything about the house was great. It had everything you needed inside the house, though we did not spend a ton of time indoors. The outdoor area was great. We hung out on the porch a lot, had dinner at the picnic table, make a fire, and relaxed by the fire pit. This house is so close to the beach, that we could walk there easily, set up our stuff, and go back and forth quickly. It was close to the tiki bar on the pier, where we went for lunch a few times. We did need to bring our own beach chairs and towels, but there was a great umbrella that the 3 of us could all fit under at the beach. That was a bonus! The location was amazing, within walking distance to most things, so we never really needed to drive anywhere. Lots of toys for activities outside, like corn-hole, badminton, and volleyball, and a large sand lot to play on. I would love to come back with my friends again!
