Melany is a full time Realtor with Coldwell Banker HPW in Cary NC and Jeff is in the Heavy Equipment Auction Business. We have 2 children, and a son in law.

We all enjoy this home off season and every opportunity we have in spring and and summer!

Melany Wayne purchased this house in 2013

Why Melany Wayne chose Carolina Beach

We bought the lot and built this home in 2012/2013. It was our dream to be able to have a beach house and so with much thought and care we worked with a local custom builder to design the house to be functional and fun! We also LOVED the location and its close proximity to everything! The neighbors are mostly full time residents and very friendly so that was a plus too!

What makes this house unique

Large lot, walking distance to many ammenities, close to beach, and great floorplan with 2 living areas and many porches to enjoy the outdoors!

Property was well maintained and clean. Beach access was right across the street with easy access by a crosswalk. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, etc. Plenty of space to spread out.

Wonderful, beautiful beach home

  • 4 of 5

We had a great beach vacation at this home. We had plenty of room to accommodate our large family. We especially enjoyed both the lower and upper porches. The kitchen was fully equipped and made cooking breakfast and dinner at home easy. We also enjoyed the convenient location. We easily walked to the Carolina Beach boardwalk and many restaurants. We would definitely stay again!

Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't wait to get to our home away from home vacation again this year. As last year, the house was perfect with enough space for our clan of 7 to spread out. It is beautifully decorated with furnishings you would select for your own home and all the kitchen things you would need to cook any recipe. We also enjoyed going out to dinner, lots of good eats around. We found a new ice cream place in walking distance, Squigly's Ice Cream and Treats, YUMMY!!!! It's a short walk on the other side of the lake. They also have a little gift shop upstairs. There is also Pops, they are only 3 doors down to get a quick ice cream fix. The weather was perfect and we were so close to the beach we could walk back across the street if we needed something, which is perfect when you have a 2 year old traveling with you. This house is very centrally located to get to anywhere in just a few minutes either by walking, biking, or car. We can't wait to go back next year.

Prefect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Carolina beach was always a family vacation destination and this year we found the perfect house to match our need. The location is great with beach access right across the street. Also, perfect distance for walking to the boardwalk, a great pizza place (next door) and so much more. The house was decorated perfect and the furniture was beyond comfortable making it easy to feel right at home. The kitchen was stocked for cooking anything and everything. The owners are quick to respond and extremely helpful anytime we had a question. We look forward to booking this house again next year!

Our home is located just across the street from the ocean and an easy walk to the Tiki Bar. The Carolina Beach Lake with walking trails is about 1/2 mile away and the downtown Carolina Beach area is just under a mile from our home. Also on the island you can visit the Fort Fisher Ferry, Fort Fisher Battlegrounds and Museum and the Aquarium. One of our favorite things to do is take the 30 min ferry ride over to Southport. You drive your car on the ferry or you can take a bike. Southport is a quaint coastal town with unique shops and wonderful restaurants. We love the "Fishy Fishy" restaurant. You may also enjoy one of the golf cart tours of that area! You will not be disappointed. From the ferry you will see the Bald Head Island lighthouse and the Oak Island Lighthouse.

In Carolina Beach you must have Britts Doughnuts. This is a favorite for about 75 years. There is only one kind of doughnut and often you will find lines, but trust me when I say it is worth it and you will be back!

For restaurants our family favorites are The Deckhouse (seafood, steak and chicken), Nikki's Sushi Bar and Gibby's Dock and Dine(casual and sandwich foods) for a water view ask to sit on the deck!

We also love Jack Mackerals(seafood and steaks) and Freddies (Italian, and reservations are recommended) in Kure Beach.

If you want to drive the short drive into Wilmington there is lots more to do. If you have time, be sure the go to the downtown, riverfront area! Wilmington is also home to University of NC at Wilmington.

Don't hesitate to call us if you have any questions about things to do! We would be happy to make more suggestions!
