Property description

'Sandcastle:'
My jaw dropped when I first walked in. Really. After visiting many tunnel-like condos, this sunny space with window after window after window offers views of the waves and sounds of the surf at every turn. 'SANDCASTLE' is a gem.

You will hear the waves as you enjoy unparalleled panoramic beachfront and oceanfront views from two walls of windows. Relax on the biggest wraparound deck with views up and down the beach. The deck also overlooks one of the TWO summertime swimming pools. You deserve this relaxing sunny stay right on the sea and sand.

Give yourself something to look forward to: Just tap the yellow BOOK IT / BOOK NOW button when you are ready and make a secure online reservation. Tap 'Detailed Price' for more info. Or tap 'Message,' or click 'Email Owner' to ask us any questions. Soon you'll be watching the dolphins swim by from the kitchen, bedroom, dining area and the sofa.

Be in the heart of this favorite community on Pleasure Island. Walk or bike to Carolina Beach boardwalk, Tiki bar, ice cream, coffee shops, the lake, and downtown.

Open concept with updated decor. Bright, clean, and relaxing king bed guest rooms, newly remodeled gorgeous master bath and loft (2016). Get a great night's rest on comfortable beds and wake refreshed for breakfast overlooking the ocean right in your own home. (BR1-King; BR2-King; BR3- Single/twin, Single/twin & a full futon). Top floor - 48 steps - earns you the most-amazing views.

Enjoy southern hospitality and those extra touches including a small welcome basket when you arrive. Family friendly with pack n play and high chair included. The kitchen is well equipped with a flat top stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, coffeemaker, pots and pans, stock pot, mugs, dishes, corkscrews and wine glasses.

Non Smoking, Cable TV, TVs in every bedroom, large closets, DVD, and WiFi internet. Private beach access for the condo community, two convenient pools (Mid April to Mid October), private locked ground level storage closet, and covered, off-street parking for two cars included. Sheets and bedding included, just bring towels.

Guest Reviews. 5-Stars:
***** 'Everyone deserves to vacation here in true beachfront beauty. Sandcastle soothes the soul.'
***** 'The Sandcastle condo more than met our expectations. The balcony is large and quiet and the views of the beach and ocean are a fantastic pairing to morning coffee and evening drinks.'
***** 'We had a wonderful time on our vacation in Carolina Beach! The living/dining/kitchen views are spectacular, the wrap-around deck was relaxing to view the sunrise or wind down after a day at the beach, and the apartment is nicely furnished with easy check-in/out.'
***** 'Perfect getaway in Carolina Beach. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that wants a rental with a great ocean front view and a nice relaxing get-a-way.'

Owner info

About the owner: We enjoy sharing our 'home away from home' with new and returning guests to historic Carolina Beach. From coffee and sunrises on the deck to ice cream strolls on the boardwalk at sundown, we want your stay to be as relaxing as possible - just let us know how we can help.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The moment we walked in we were in love. My jaw dropped taking in the amazing views from every window... and then we smiled. We finally felt enveloped by the warm ocean we traveled so far to spend time with. I slid the window open a sliver to hear the sound of the ocean as I drifted off to sleep ... there was no need. The relaxing rhythmic wave soundtrack is ever present here. A natural warm welcome and soothing tour de force. And the warm sea breezes waft by like a fuzzy blanket as you soak it all in from the luxury 'penthouse' top floor deck. Be pampered, enjoy it, you deserve it. The sights of the ocean, the sounds of the beach, feeling of the salty air -- Sandcastle, Carolina Beach - your vacation home. 'Modern retreat in a perfect location.' 'Parking my car and being able to walk or ride my bike anywhere -- downtown, to the lake, the local bars and restaurants, the boardwalk. I can sit on the beach with friends, watch the Thursday night fireworks in the summer and full moons rising in the fall and winter months. I can build sandcastles on the beach, let the waves wash my cares away, and wake up to a new and spectacular sunrise every morning. No two days start off the same. Sunsets on the deck are heavenly. I can take a day trip by car or bike to Fort Fisher, visit the aquarium, take a ferry to Southport for shopping or a ride to Bald Head Island by ferry for lunch. Carolina Beach has the only 'drive on' beach by 4x4 at the north end all year round -- unobstructed pristine beach and views for 2 1/2 miles. Golf is just over the bridge, tennis is on the island, local gyms don't require 'memberships', golf cart friendly streets, bike lanes, kayaking galore, surf sailing rentals, fishing charters for the day or half day, evening dinner cruises.....Local seafood markets with fresh catch every day. Jazz festivals, chowder cookoffs, holiday flotillas, polar plunges for the special Olympics, summer farmers market around the lake -- sweet Carolina.
