3 bedroom, 2 bathroom oceanfront property with large deck and modern ammenities
Wake up to beautiful, unobstructed sunrises, and be lulled to sleep by the calming sound of the waves on your next vacation to Carolina Beach. Our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is ocean front with a large single floor deck to enjoy relaxing on for your vacation. Our home sleeps 8 comfortably on two queens and two sets of bunk beds, and two more can be accommodated with a trundle and roll-a-way bed, making our unit able to sleep 10, if needed. Our unit (1575 sq. ft.) is larger than most 3 bedroom units on the island, as it is the entire first floor of this home, so the only stairs you need to climb are the one flight to get up into the unit.
Our kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances - a French door refrigerator with ice maker, a double oven, a wine cooler, microwave and very quiet dishwasher. We also have all the other necessities that you will need to make meals at the beach - coffee maker, toaster, blender, pots, pans, stock pot, dishes, mugs, and wine glasses. We also have a grill if you wish to do some cooking outside and table and chairs on the deck to eat outside too.
The master bath has a whirlpool tub and shower, and the guest bathroom has a tub and shower, with a pocket door to maximize the use of the bathroom.
Our home also has a laundry closet with a stack, front loading washer and dryer for you to use. Linen service is also included in all weekly pricing. If staying less than a week, the additional fee is $140.00.
Our unit has a private beach access for those days that you want to enjoy the beach. We are also lucky enough to have a lifeguard post right by our house for added safety when bringing families and those new to the beach. We provide 8 beach chairs so there is no need to bring any from home. There are also plenty of sand toys that we've accumulated over the years to play with as well. We also have a backyard (very rare on the island) if you want to bring your yard games to enjoy.
If it happens to rain during your stay, there is plenty to keep you entertained inside. We have cable TV in the living room and master bedroom. We have a DVD/VCR combo in the living room, and DVD player in the master with some VHS and DVDs provided. There is also an Xbox 360 with games for the kids to use and secure wireless internet throughout the property (from 30-65 mbps). Plus plenty of books and some board games to pass the time.
To make your stay hassle free, no parking passes are required (so no towing!) and there is enough parking for 4 vehicles (two covered spaces).
We are approximately 1 mile from the boardwalk area, where there are restaurants and shopping galore, an arcade and amusement rides during the summertime. Also every Thursday night there are fireworks on the beach which you can enjoy down by the boardwalk or from the beach in front of our unit. Sunday nights there is a family movie at the lake (about 2 miles away). We are also two blocks from the fishing pier where you can buy bait and licenses, and only 4 blocks from the access to Freeman 4x4 Park.
If you are interested in booking less than a week, please contact us as we can provide you with nightly prices.
Finally the owners live two houses down - so if you encounter any problems they will be there personally to get your vacation back on track.

About Emily and Marcus Matzke
My husband and I are originally from Minnesota. In 2007, we decided to be adventurous and move to another state. We had visited the Outer Banks on our honeymoon, but it was tough to find housing and jobs on the Banks. Someone mentioned the Wilmington area, specifically Carolina Beach. We'd never even heard of it, but decided to visit and see what Pleasure Island was all about. We fell in love with the place the minute we drove over the bridge - you immediately felt like you were on vacation. A few years later, we were fortunate enough to buy our first place at the beach, and we decided we wanted to create a business where people can come to enjoy our wonderful beach and spend sometime reconnecting as a family. Six years later, we own four rental homes that we run ourselves and enjoy having people join us year after year to spend and admire beautiful Carolina Beach.
Emily and Marcus Matzke purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Emily and Marcus Matzke chose Federal Point
We are very particular about the properties that we have purchased. When we first moved, we lived on the North End and really enjoyed how quiet and low traffic the area is compared to other places on the island. It is a mile from the boardwalk, but it is also away from all the rowdy hotels and bars as well. You can come home and know you will get a good night's sleep. Many of our neighbors live on the island year-round so it really feels like home away from home. Also we liked how close we lived to this property, so we can be at the service of our customers, if the need should arise.
What makes this Condo unique
My favorite part of this home is the balcony. It is large and the view is so wonderful. It is so close to the beach you can watch your kids from it, you can take in all the sights and sounds of the beach while sitting in the shade. Also the sunrises are unbelievable and it's always a treat when dolphin fins can be seen peeking over the waves. Also, you should look for the huge manta ray jumping out of the waves to catch fish - even after living here for 6 years I get giddy at the sight!

Loved the condo. It being right on the beach was fabulous. Will try and stay again.
Beautiful house and location
This is our second time staying here, the house is beautiful and spacious, stocked with everything you could need, including kitchen wares, a grill, beach accessories and board games. The town of Carolina Beach is laid back but still with the beach town vibe. I highly recommend visiting the Fort Fisher Aquarium and the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. We were allowed to bring our small dogs and there is a perfect fenced in yard for them, plus Freeman park is a short walk away, where dogs are allowed on the beach. While we were there, the water did come right up to the rocks most of the day, so had to walk a few houses down and use the public access in order to enjoy the beach. Also, the beds are extremely firm so I recommend bringing a mattress pad with you if you prefer a softer sleep, not a complaint but a preference. Each room does have a ceiling fan and a nice closet, the bathrooms are both spacious. This house makes for a true beach vacation, we saw dolphins many times off the balcony. We hope to stay again soon!
Great place right on the beach with a fenced in yard...
We initially got this place because we thought we were bringing a dog. We didn't bring one, but the fenced in yard is perfect for it, as well as being great for little kids. Waking up to the ocean sunrise right out the window was awesome. We had more than enough beds for the whole family. The living/dining/kitchen area is open and great. Every bedroom has a little balcony and the master leads onto a nice big porch, with sliding doors leading from the living room as well. The whole family really enjoyed our stay. We've never seen so many dolphins and pelicans! When we needed something from the landlord they came right over. We would definitely stay here again.
Really enjoyed our stay at Carolina Beach at this property! The private beach access was awesome and the yard was great for our dogs, though I wish there was a bit more lighting available at night for the yard and porch areas. The location is really spot on - close enough to walk to the pier or the boardwalk if desired, but far enough that it is quiet and relaxing. The unit itself is really spacious and had everything we could ever need. Not the most comfortable mattresses on the beds, as others have noted, but decent enough. The owners were very responsive and the property is cared for well, felt like home after a week!
Great place to stay on the beach!
We have stayed here twice and love it! Emily is super responsive and the condo is a great size with a great setup. Right on the water! Our dogs love the fenced yard and our kiddo loved the bunk beds. Nice big kitchen and comfy living/dining room. Would definitely recommend staying here!
Location location location!
Steps from beautiful Carolina Beach. Very nice living area and kitchen. Master bedroom with ocean view. Wonderful large covered porch. Pet friendly. Carpeting shows severe pet wear and porch furniture, especially side tables, should be replaced. You will have renters above you if you are in Unit 1, and they may be noisy. Cottage was well equipped.
