Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq ft
Property type house

About the property

2 Bedroom, sleeps 6 but can be rented with the other unit to sleep 12

This is one of two vacation rentals on the property. The other unit is a one bedroom that also sleeps 6 ( sleeps 12 with both units other unit is VRBO #472895). The units can be rented separately or together to sleep 12.

Once you arrive you will walk through the courtyard past the beautiful pool to your unit. It is a single story building which means no stairs! Also no upstairs or downstairs neighbors.

The first bedroom has a queen bed and the 2nd has a queen and a set of bunk beds allowing this unit to sleep a total of six. It's perfect for families or a group of friends.

This is our home away from home and is set up for peace, comfort and enjoyment. There is a full kitchen that is stocked with all the supplies you need for wonderful meals or a quick bite. Including a full size fridge, range, microwave, and dishwasher.

The bathroom is very small but beautifully tiled, there is no bathtub. There is an additional shower outside with hot and cold water.

Linens are not included

There is a stackable Washer/Dryer (new 2018)

The bungalow is surrounded by a variety of delightful outdoor space with plenty of sun or shade areas to relax. The side door has access to the courtyard which is fenced-in for pets. There are double sliding doors in the living area that open right up to the pool with palms and a waterside. This pool is only shared with the other two units in the complex (the other vacation rental and the caretakers).

It is just two and a half short blocks (about a 4 minute walk) from the beach and the board walk. The entire walk is on a sidewalk and there are stop lights and crosswalks at both intersections. So you are right in the middle of the action but as soon as you get back 'home' you will experience the peace and quiet of a private residence.

About Rebecca Triplett

My name is Rebecca Triplett. I purchased this property and lived there with family for several years. Family obligations drew us back to our home state of Minnesota but we just could not part with this treasure. We made this unit into a weekly rental so we will have a place to stay when we visit and hopefully still pay the mortgage :-) It was a fixer upper to say the least when I bought it. We have made a ton of improvements and continue to make changes to make it a wonderful vacation for our guests.

Rebecca Triplett purchased this house in 2003

Why Rebecca Triplett chose Carolina Beach

We were looking for access to the beach and a pool but still wanted to have a quiet and private space. We did not like having to deal with the crowds, traffic noise and party atmosphere of the strip along the ocean but then we found this treasure! It is so close to the beach as well as all of the activities Carolina Beach has to offer. We are right next to all the stuff you'll want to experience. Once you get to the bungalow you could just leave your car and walk to everything you would like to do. You can literally sit on the front patio and watch the Thursday night fireworks and smell the donuts cooking at Brits! The pool is as large or larger than some of the pools at the hotels in the area but virtually private. You will feel like you are in an oasis. I love to cook and have had some bad experience with rental properties saying they had a well stocked kitchen but did not. Don't worry about that here. I have made sure I have all the tools I need to have fun with my cooking hobby.

What makes this house unique

I can not stress enough how nice it is to have such a quiet and private space. I love the action of the boardwalk and the beach but I like to get away from it too. Once you enter the courtyard, it's like a different world. This is a one story unit. There are no stairs to get in, or once you get in. Trust me, this is a great feature! No hauling all your things up and down all those stairs! There is exterior space for children to play with a gate to separate that space from the pool. We are a pet friendly unit. We love pets!!! But to us that does not just mean that we allow pets. The unit is designed with flooring that allows for good clean up between rentals. It is all tile or laminate flooring. This unit also has plenty of parking. Unlike many units that only allow one car, we have designated parking for one car per unit with ample street parking right next to the reserved spaces.

Wonderful week at Dancing Oaks!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth stay here, and it continues to be a perfect spot for our family. Kitchen and bath remodels this year were a plus! Nicely done.

Central Heating and Close to the Beach

  • 3 of 5

Nice little place close to the beach. Carolina Beach is the most (winter time) dog-friendly city we have visited.

Super comfortable bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Just a couple of blocks from the beach, really close to Fort Fisher, and a quick car ride into downtown Wilmington, this place was perfect for us! The next time we come back to Carolina Beach, we will look to book this place again.

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year in a row staying in the 2 bedroom unit and I am already planning for next year. The place was clean and the new deck with the charcoal grills are a great addition out at the pool area - it allowed us to grill out while relaxing out by the pool! My family and friends that joined me were also very happy with the place and being pet friendly, my puppy Nina made herself right at home. I even found a free dog park just a short drive away for her to run and play. The location is a short distance to Ft. Fisher beach that is dog friendly, the Southport Ferry for a day trip to Southport, and to the Carolina Beach state park to find the Venus Flytrap plants! The caretakers were also very friendly and attentive. Looking forward to returning soon.
