Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This stunning first floor condominium comes with an expansive deck with sliding glass doors that lead to a large master bedroom with king-size bed. A second bedroom comes complete with a queen over twin trundle bed give new meaning to the term 'comfortable elegance.' This oceanfront condominium allows you to watch the sunrise or view the dolphins and surfers play in the sea.

Our home has been created to meet your every need. Each year we look for opportunities to introduce upgrades to our home. We now have a new 55” flat screen “smart” 3D HDTV with an amazing Sonos® sound system with a 3D DVD mounted on the wall in the living room. TVs in the bedrooms are also flat screen. This year we have completely redecorated with all new furniture, new carpets and paint. If you feel like staying in, there are plenty of games to play and if you high speed internet is included with your stay. The unit also has its own washer and dryer. You will love it!

The beaches are clean and not crowded, even during the height of the season. Walk up and down the beautiful sands (which are your front yard!) at any hour of the day or night. Or, simply listen to the sound of the waves hitting the shore right from the interior of your retreat.

Do not feel like straying far from your retreat? This condominium comes with a second deck that overlooks a full-size pool! Yummy restaurants are nearby. You can even walk down the beach from your retreat to the Ocean Grill Restaurant.

Quaint downtown Wilmington on the Cape Fear River with shopping and restaurants is a short 20 minute drive away. Take the ferry to Southport and eat at the yummy restaurants. Fishy Fishy is one of my favorites.

Rental of our home does not include linens, but we can have these provided for a small additional charge. Please let me know if you would like to take advantage of this when you make your reservation.

About Karen Pitt

This is a beautiful, restful retreat that I hope you will enjoy. It fills our soul and we hope it will yours!

Karen Pitt purchased this condo in 2005

Why Karen Pitt chose Southern Coast

While most people love the interior, I get the most comments on the expansive deck, which is unlike any others in Carolina Beach. The interior is gorgeous, though!

What makes this condo unique

This is a beautiful 1st floor unit, so you have beautiful ocean views without having to climb many stairs. All that is between you and the ocean is the dunes, which give you the feeling that you are camping on the beach. And, what a campsite! The deck is covered so you can go out there even when there is some rain. We have an outdoor shower just below our unit and the walkway to the beach is right next to the building, so it's easy to go back and forth from the condo to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steve & Karen

It's hard to believe our week is over. Time passes to quickly in paradise. We are repeat vacationers in Carolina Beach. This is our first stay in your condo. Your condo is beautifully decorated. The view is spectacular. The kids enjoyed the paddle boats. We took a cruise on the Henrietta III, walked "old Wilmington" and enjoyed the shopping. We try to do different things each time we come!

Stunning Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I were so impressed with our stay at Karen's Condo; It had everything needed to feel at home and relax. We usually lease houses on our vacations, but were sold on her property because it was beachfront with a great view. And we weren't disappointed! Even enjoyed a late night dinner on the deck-fantastic views here. Thanks Karen for your hospitality!

Very nice condo on ocean

  • 4 of 5

Very nice oceanfront condo with great deck and view. Pretty inside. Comfortable king bed in master but very high bed A footstool is provided. Well stocked kitchen. Very small bathrooms outside of complex a bit worn but inside welcoming. Great stereo and Bluray DVD. Enjoyed having washer and dryer. Spent most of our time on deck. Comfortable deck Furniture with padding that needs to be cleaned or replaced due to stains. Loved the expansive view of the beach and listening to the waves. Will return

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We are doing a total exterior renovation of the building this winter and the results are expected to be stunning! Thank you for the feedback on the cushions, too. The entire seating arrangement was brand new this season and so we were surprised to learn of the problem. The ocean can be harsh on furniture and we do our best to make sure that everything is beautiful. We'll get this taken care of!

Wonderful and relaxing experience

  • 4 of 5

This vacation rental was one of our favorites ever! The condo was clean and furnished with almost everything you could need on a beach trip. We were really impressed with how well thought out the amenities were. It is very obvious that a pleasant and relaxing experience is the goal of the owner. Karen followed up enough times to ensure we were satisfied but not so much that it became intrusive. We were also impressed with her devotion to customer satisfaction. It's great to know the owner as a person and not a nameless realty service that only knows you by your credit card number.

The highlights of our trip included The Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar. A great staff with excellent food and perfect atmosphere. A carriage ride through the historic section of Wilmington was great! We rented bikes from Shorebreak bikes and found many pleasant side streets and friendly neighborhoods to ride through. Shorebreak even delivered and picked up the bikes for us which reduced stress and let us focus on enjoyment. We would recommend you take time to ride the ferry into Southpoint and have a steamed plate of goodness at Provisions Supply and Restaurant. This was another spot that had really friendly service and you got to eat right on the water.

Access to the beach was extremely convenient. We were right next to the walk way to the beach. It was literally a 2 minute walk from our condo to the ocean....yes, I timed it.

It was a great experience for us and we will be making a return trip!!

Relaxing deck, rather comfortable and convenient!

  • 4 of 5

Relaxing deck with a great view! We enjoyed the stay and liked the convenient access to the beach and parking. The couch, bed and bedroom patio door have seen better days, but considering all variables, it is worth it. I would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Just wanted to update you and others that each of these issues has been addressed for the start of the 2017 season. We put a new sliding glass door in the bedroom and essentially all the furniture has been replaced! We hope everyone likes the new look!

Great Vacation Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo. We had a great two weeks. The condo has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable. The view from the deck is unbelievable. We couldn't have asked for anything more except maybe a little bit cooler temperatures since we chose the two weeks of a heat wave. Thankfully it was just a short walk over the dunes to a fabulous beach or just a few steps down to the pool. Everything is so close. We did the boardwalk, dinners out, ferry to Southport, lazed on the beach and by the pool, etc. Thank you again. Our vacation was amazing!
