About the property

Two bedroom beach duplex close to everything

****Please check out our other listing at vrbo #308532****

Updated beach property in the middle of it all! Once you park your car, there is no reason to drive again until you're going home! We are located an easy 5 minutes walking distance from the boardwalk and even closer to a number of excellent restaurants.

Check out the map on this listing. The beach, fishing, shopping, restaurants, bars, the boardwalk & amusement rides are all a stone's throw away.

The property has 2 bedrooms, with a full bed in each room, and 2 full baths. Need more space? Check out or larger units at vrbo #308532 and #873762

We have another unit available at the same address which also has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. This unit, however, has 2 queen beds in one bedroom and 1 queen in the second bedroom. This unit has a larger living area and dining area than the Little Blue Pelican. You can view the listing for this unit at vrbo #308532

You must provide your own paper products, linens and beach equipment. We will be happy to provide the contact information for a local linen service or you can bring your own.

We are happy to accept your well behaved pets (limit 2) with a REFUNDABLE pet deposit of $200 and an additional $25 pet cleaning fee. The $200 will be refunded to you along with your general deposit within 2 weeks of departure as long as no damages or excessive mess is left behind. The cleaning fees are non-refundable.

Just ok

  • 2 of 5

The house was in a good location, but needs some updates. The floor was tacky and needed cleaning, everything else was pretty clean. They have an ant problem and I saw a couple small roaches. Woke up the second morning to enjoy chocolate chip muffins we had purchased. They were still in the package but filled with the ant friends. Had to throw all 4 of them away. I don't think I would stay there again.

Amazing location.

  • 4 of 5

Let me start by saying this is the perfect location. It's right by the beach access, it's less than a five minute walk to the boardwalk, and it's right in the heart of great restaurants. The duplex was the perfect size for us (2 couples) and it was so nice to have two bathrooms.

For the negative: if you want to cook, please note there are no pots or pans. There are some cooking utensils and regular utensils and a sheet for the oven but that's it. We had to go to Walmart and buy some cooking things while we were there. Also there is a party boat right next door that was a little annoying. It didn't really bother us and we were able to sleep through it but I could see how some families would be opposed to this.

Overall, we were happy with our experience and would definitely come back and stay again, we would just come better prepared. Thanks for the great visit! 😀

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We fully stock the kitchen and inventory the cookware several times through the season but, unfortunately, some of the items we purchase do disappear over time. Upon receipt of this information we immediately restocked our cookware. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we are glad to hear that you otherwise enjoyed your stay with us!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location- within walking distance to restaurants/bars and beach. Wifi didn't work but that wasn't too much of a deal breaker for us. Also, the shower in the bathroom on the left side of hallway must be turned to the right for warm, left for cold. Since the A/C is a window unit, the back bedrooms got a little warm. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay- nothing extraordinary but it was all we needed.

Great Location and Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here a couple of nights during the week of July 4th - last minute. The duplex was spotlessly cleaned and just as described. It's small but for 2 people and our dog, it was just perfect. The location is great... we walked to dinner both nights and you're just a short walk to the beach. The weather was miserably hot so the one A/C unit struggled to keep the bedrooms cool but since we were only in the bedrooms at night, it wasn't a problem. WIFI was iffy... works best in the front bedroom. No complaints from us and would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We came to Carolina Beach for a family reunion at the end of July. The Blue Pelican has an excellent location. We were afraid it might be loud but it was not. We had some problems with the wifi on the first night but it was quickly resolved. We were only able to get wifi in the back bedrooms but that was OK. The walking distance to the beach is a huge plus. We only used the refrigerator to store food and didn't do any cooking but the kitchen is nicely stocked. We were able to bring our Yorkie too, which was great. I hope to stay there again.

Car: not necessary

Carolina Beach is a great place to vacation and The Little Blue Pelican is located right in the center of it all. Once you arrive, you can park your car and put away your keys until your departure. Visit Kate's Pancake House for a great breakfast and Harbor Master's for dinner. Don't forget to stop by Squiggly's Ice Cream Shop for a wonderful waffle cone! Walk to these restaurants, along with many others for a great meal. Enjoy the nightlife? No need to call a cab -- there are a handful of great bars within a 5 minute walk of our property. If fishing is your thing, this is the location for you. We are located directly between the Yacht Basin and the beach access. The beach access is an easy 500 feet away from your front door! Carolina Beach is a family friendly vacation destination. You and your little ones can easily walk to the amusement park for an evening of fun, complete with fireworks! History buffs will enjoy the historical Fort Fisher while beach bums will be amazed at the beautiful, unobstructed coastline it offers -- just a 5 minute drive! While you are there, check out the Fort Fisher Aquarium for a great educational experience for adults and children alike.


We encourage you to view the website for information on Carolina Beach's pet rules and what areas allow your pets on the beach.
