About Amanda Ross - Care Taker

Welcome to 'Howe Wonderful'! This all started as Sandy's dream to have a place near the beach and for a girl from Pennsylvania her dream has come true. Pete is a local Wilmingtonian and recalls Carolina Beach in its early years. In the off season, we both enjoy working on the condo to make it a relaxing and fun place to come. We know you will enjoy our second home as much as we do.

Amanda Ross - Care Taker purchased this condo in 2005

Why Amanda Ross - Care Taker chose Southern Coast

Carolina Beach is a great beach! It is has long beaches, little crowds, classic beach feel and dogs are allowed year around on the north end. Finally, being near the beach allows you to enjoy all the beautiful gifts the ocean brings.

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Harbor is a small development in which many locals live year around. The development also has the entire block between the ocean and canal. Tenants often comment how they feel as if they are the only ones at the beach in front of our development. We have even had some that leave their chairs in the same spot for the entire week and they are never moved. Life is good here!

Welcome! We hope you have enjoyed your stay at Carolina Beach. Please come again!

Wonderful Long Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Howe Wonderful! We loved being across the street from the Ocean and across the street from the waterway. The condo is very nice and the decor is so beachy. We will be back!

Can't Wait Until Next Year!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here for Memorial Day weekend and already can't wait for next year. The owners and property manager were great. We live the location since it's so close to the beach! We spent our days on the beach until almost 5-6pm and the pool for a little before heading out! Our kids love it and it's a relaxing atmosphere! We hope to be back next year!

Great location. Very close to public access to the beach. 5 minute walk. Owner's were more than accommodating, allowing us to check in 2 hours early to drop off my dogs, so that we could start our sight seeing early. I will be returning! 🙌�😁�👍�⛱

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments. We are happy to assist our guests in any way that we can. Seems our "furry" guests really love the cool tile floors and screened porch. We look forward to your next visit.

The place was cute and comfy. Right across the street from the beach.

It was easy to book and we had no problems at all!

Thanks for letting us share your home!

Great condo for family, including dogs!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, right near the beach, clean, comfy, pretty colors and decor. Excellent communication and got all my questions answered before the trip. I liked that it wasn't on the ground floor because I felt like that means less chances for bugs! The only issue we had was the microwave made a zapping sound when we turned it on so we didn't feel comfortable using it. (obviously this is not a big deal when everything else was perfect).
