About Doug Welch

Kathy and I are just a couple of hard working, fun loving people who's lifelong dream is to live on the beach. We all enjoy hanging out at the beach as a family, swimming, laying out or biking up to the boardwalk. At the end of the day we'll sit out on the balcony, watching the waves crash or head out to one of the many fine dining establishments on the island. These are a few of our favorite things :)

Doug Welch purchased this condo in 2014

Why Doug Welch chose Southern Coast

We really look foward to watching the sun rise, hoping to spot some dolphins making their way up & down the coast. Just listening to the calming effect of the waves crashing and sea gulls in background, as we stare in awe of God's creation and collect our thoughts.

What makes this condo unique

Just feet from the beautiful beach. Take one of the two private walkways over the natural dunes to the beach equipped with showers to rinse off. Private ground level storage closet to keep beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and other beach toys...all available exclusively for our guests. Our deck overlooks one of the two pools so kids can swim below while mom and dad watch from above while sitting at the high table if you choose.

Situated on a beach famous for excellent surfing and paddle boarding and don't fret if you don't know how to do either as there are world renown teachers on the beach who can get you set up and hanging ten in no time.

For dining, the seafood doesn't get any fresher and if you enjoy a good ribeye steak, the Deck House, just down the street can't be beat...and then there's the nationally acclaimed, Britt's Donuts, just down on the boardwalk (a must!)

Plan a day trip just down the street to historic Fort Fisher Museum, a strategic stronghold during the civil war, and just next door is the Carolina Beach Aquarium, where the kids will enjoy seeing sharks, rays, sea turtles, jellies and more. Meet a rare albino alligator and touch a shark! Dive shows, feedings, outdoor play area and fossil hunt. Explore more in behind scenes tours and classes.

Go back in time and visit downtown Wilmington only 20 minutes away. Dine at one the many fine waterfront restaurants or cafe's, take a horse & carriage tour of downtown, tour the battleship museum, USS North Carolina, riverboat tours etc...

Enjoy free fireworks by the sea on the beach near the Carolina Beach Boardwalk at sunset every Thursday night during the summer months! The fireworks will begin at 9:00 pm and the gazebo entertainment begins at 6:30 pm. The fireworks and gazebo entertainment are free and open to all, weather permitting.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property! Very nice view of the ocean/beach from the corner balcony (roomy and plenty of seating) and an easy walk on a private boardwalk to the beach. Their beach locker is nicely stocked with three tommy bahama chairs and a couple others too, body boards, sand toys...great set up! The condo is nicely appointed, comfy beds and plenty of linens/towels. The kitchen is also well stocked and roomy. An FYI, If you are going to want to take drinks out to the pool or beach make sure you pack your own plastic glasses as all drinkware is glass except for a couple plastic wine glasses. Other than that, I'd think anyone will love this rental! Easy walk to the Tiki Bar restaurant right down the beach, and the burger place across the street from the condo is really good as well. We would definitely come back!

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo and how there was things provided to us. Boogie boards were cracked but still usable. We loved being right on the beach and everything. Recommend maybe doing something with loud neighbors above if possible. Loud steps and bangs all through the night that wake you up. Overall I would come back to the same condo. Great 1st time experience and made great memories!

A great long weekend at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here. The way the condo is set up allowed us put our small kids to bed in their own space! They loved the two twin bed set up too. The condo was clean and ready for us. The furniture was a tiny bit outdated but I guess it's expected at a beach condo. The cabinets were bright and fun and the fish on the wall made it look really fun. One tip: When you get there, you will get an email on how to get to the condo. Realize that this condo is not in the ones facing the main street! We searched for a few minutes! Also, it's up two flights of stairs. The owner was really responsive and helpful. The grounds people need a little lesson in customer service though. We were trying to hang by the pool on a Friday afternoon (2pm) and the guy with the blower was all around us. Maybe they need to schedule their maintenance another time so people can enjoy the little bit of sun we got that day! :) Don't forget to check out Britt's Donuts and Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar. They were both great!
