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.

Lovely, updated, well-appointed and cared for place

  • 5 of 5

Unparalleled views in a great location. Clearly these homeowners and their cleaning and maintenance teams care about you having a good vacation. We had thorough, kind and helpful communication, easy check in and out, and got our deposit back quickly. Our favorite part of the day was watching ocean sunrises with coffee on the deck; sunsets are a relaxing colorful show too. Bedrooms were amazingly comfortable and kitchen was clean and well stocked. Use the oceanfront stairs and with that amazing view you won't mind the steps up. Our best-ever owner-rental experience. Can't wait to return, we've already reserved our next stay. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the view of the ocean from the deck and living room.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay during the first week of May. It was off season so there were no chairs around the pool. We overlooked the ocean and liked the easy access to the beach. Our nice trip was slightly spoiled by a couple of items. The handle of a toilet broke and wasn't repaired the last 3 days of our stay, which was a minor inconvenience as there were 2 toilets. Wouldn't have mentioned it until the owner informed me that we were being charged for it, along with several cleaning items that cost more than our security deposit. Looks like the cleaning company they use is out to gouge the guests for over charging their cleaning services. Because of that, I wouldn't go back

Ideal family vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle. The condo arrangements were perfect for our family of 6. The kids had their own space and it truly felt like we were on vacation going to bed at night to the sound of the ocean waves crashing! I would highly recommend this area of of the North Carolina coast as there is plenty to do and see along with authentic local dining options!
