About the property

One Bedroom with Beach Views - Great for Small Family Vacation

Enjoy the waves, sand, and sun without the price of oceanfront. Our 1 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom, 3rd floor condo is perfect for a small family, a couple, or two couples looking to get away for their beach vacation. Relax on the balcony or in the living room and have great views of the beach in every direction - you can even hear it!

Our unit sleeps 4 people with one queen in the bedroom and a pull-out couch in the living room. We also have a dining room table in the unit and on the balcony that seats four so everyone can sit and have a meal together.

Our kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, oven, microwave, and 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.

Our 1.5 bath is perfect for four people as there are two sinks, two toilets, and one shower to share. The way the doors are situated, three people can be using bathroom amenities at the same time.

Our home also has a laundry closet with a stack, front loading washer and dryer for you to use. We also offer linen service if you wish to not bring your linens with you for $75/wk.

Our unit is right across the street from the public beach access for those days that you want to enjoy the beach. We are also lucky enough to have a lifeguard post right by the access for added safety when bringing families and those new to the beach. We provide 4 beach chairs so is saves from having to bring any from home. There are also plenty of sand toys that we've accumulated over the years to play with as well. Also included with our unit is access to two pools with one pool right behind the building if you need calmer waters.

If it happens to rain during your stay, there is plenty to keep you entertained inside. We have extended cable TV in the living room along with a DVD/VCR combo. There are at least three Redbox locations on the island to rent movies from, one just a mile away. There is also wireless internet available in the unit.

There are parking spots for two vehicles, and parking for boats and trailers nearby. 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 and decided 10 years ago 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. Eight years later, we own six 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 2010

Why Emily and Marcus Matzke chose Carolina Beach

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.

We loved it here! Very nice place just across the street from the beach but still had the view!

This place is super cozy and cute. We enjoyed getting to spend our birthdays at the beach this year. I would definitely come back.

Affordable, convenient, clean beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for an affordable condo close to the beach (right across the street- you can see and hear the ocean from the patio). Dog friendly and very close to Freeman park. The way the bathroom is set up makes it easy to share the space with more people. The sofa bed may not have been the most comfortable (but what sofa beds are..!). My husband took note that he appreciated the new ceiling fans and water pressure in the shower. Check in was very easy.

Great place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in a great area. You can see the water from the balcony and you are a step away from the beach. There is a pier 2 blocks away with great food and fishing as well. The place itself was nice and clean. I great deal for the price.

Just what we, hubby, and our dog

  • 4 of 5

Clean, quiet, and SO close to ocean. Cable in living room and Internet options in bedroom was great to relax in evening. Access to extra cushions for bed and sofa bed would put this at 5 star!

Great place to enjoy the beach and close enough to the downtown. Excellent service when requested.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay at your place. I would make only one suggestion is to put in a ceiling fan on the porch to help it stay cool.
