About the property

Fresh 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Private Home With Beautiful Ocean Views Sleeps 8

This private home, built in 2011 offers style and comfort usually only found in much larger beach homes. With three bedrooms, two full baths and a Queen size pull out couch in the Living room, there is plenty of room for you and your family or friends to move about with ease and comfort.

With 1500 square feet of space featuring such treatments as granite counter tops over real Maple cabinets, oak hardwood floors, gas fireplace and 7.1 surround sound (with separate external deck speakers) and flat screen TV's you are certain to 'live the good life' whether at the beach or spending some 'down time' inside.

The top of the home consists solely of the Master Bedroom Suite. A huge room with King bed, private bath with walk in closet and your own private (from the rest of the house and partitioned from next door neighbors) walk out deck, there is plenty of room to relax or watch the days go by below. Star gazing at night from this deck is one of the most enjoyable parts of staying at this home.

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 2011

Why Chris Saba chose Southern Coast

We chose this location for it's view back in 2005. With a mostly unobstructed view from across the street, it's one of the best second row views on the strip. Surrounded by much larger and more expensive homes, we/you are in great company. We have received many compliments from both visitors and local towns people for having one of the best looking homes on the strip as well. It has plenty of style without the need for the size and price of much larger homes. You will enjoy this home!

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!

Great home, wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well kept home, clean, and ready for families to use. We cooked almost every day and found everything we needed. The location is wonderful, with the beach across the street and views of the ocean from the front deck. It's truly a great find. You can see the Carolina Beach boardwalk area from the house, there is a grocery store near by, and bigger stores are a short trip over the bridge. The owner responded quickly to our questions, and I would recommend this home and I hope to come back next year.

The home was a bit "worn" but very responsive owner

  • 3 of 5

Given the photos of the house and the price we expected the home to be very well maintained, however the home was a bit worn (scuff marks on walls, ripped shower curtain, etc). The house was clean on the inside but the exterior needs to be cleaned as the vinyl, door and rails were very dirty (from the environment). A pressure wash, fresh coat of interior paint and the house would be more presentable. The house is in a good location close to restaurants, etc. Chris was very responsive and a pleasure to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. Please keep in mind we are at the end of the summer season and these homes take a beating each year. Major maintenance can not happen until the season is over and the property is vacant. We feel the home is in wonderful shape considering is seven seasons old and is used every week by complete strangers, not to mention the toll the environment takes on the outside on a daily basis.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great house, perfect location, outstanding view of the ocean. The house is very nicely furnished, and was perfect for our family vacation. The master suite is beautiful, and, has a private balcony that we thoroughly enjoyed. We spent lots of time on the large porch looking at the ocean.
