About the property

Two walls of windows and updated decor, new king beds, 3BR, 2 Bath


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.

About Sandcastle Carolina Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking views are only the beginning of the stay! The beach access is right at the bottom of the condo. The beach was incredibly clean and relaxing. The condo was clean, updated and everything was as promised. The communication with the owners was perfect! There was never a question that we didn't have an answer to. If we ever visit Carolina Beach again, we could only hope to reserve this condo again! We really enjoyed ourselves!

Perfect Labor Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had the best views, access to the beach, and comfort! The stairs were not an issue at all. The balcony was incredible and we adored the view! We enjoyed the renovated bathrooms and cute decor. Five of us stayed for two nights and we had plenty of room! Parking was simple and the storage closet on the bottom floor was very helpful. Would definitely recommend!

One of those places you’ll never forget! We hope to come back soon!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing. It was spacious and nicely decorated in a boho beach style. The large wrap-around balcony had a beautiful view of the beach with an outdoor dining area that was perfect for dinner while watching the sunset. The interior of the property was accentuated with a floor-to-ceiling mirror, elegant chandelier, and an intricate spiral staircase. The bottom floor had two bedrooms with king-size beds and two full bathrooms, perfect for our large family. Everything was clean, orderly, and put-together. The loft on the second floor was absolutely stunning with a window seat facing the beach and a cozy living area in front of the two twin beds. The kitchen was fully equipped with a microwave, oven, coffee machine and stove. Everything worked great! The hosts were extremely welcoming and even left a welcome package with toiletries, detergent, and other cute necessities. This was one of the best places we have ever spent a beach vacation! The whole family loved it, and we will definitely come back!

Loved this view!!! Beautiful place and was quiet which I worried about being on the south side of the boardwalk. Liked that the Entrance to the beach was right down the stairs and to the pool perfect location. Was also within walking distance to the boardwalk for our 9yr old. Thank you again for letting us rent this beautiful property!!
