About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sleeper sofa in living room + Bunks alcove + Graco portable crib available, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Relax to the murmur of the surf, and count the pelicans cruising past your private deck with ocean views. Only a sleepy one-way street separates you from oceanfront cottages, dunes, beach and ocean! Stroll less than a block to the nearby access for the lifeguard-protected (in season) beach, or just go downstairs to the pool with generous-sized sundeck (in season).

All the comforts of home in this 1 bedroom, 2 full bath, second story condo, which is as large (over 800 sq. ft.) as many 2 bedroom units. The bedroom has a queen size bed, private bath, TV, roomy closet, and a small screened balcony that overlooks the pool. There is an alcove in the hallway with 2 bunk beds. The upper bunk is youth-sized, for up to a 5' 6' person, approximately. The lower bunk is extended, and will accommodate a person of 5' 9', approximately. Across the hall from the bunks is another full bath. Sliding glass patio doors and see-through entry door enhance the view from the living room to the deck and the ocean. Generous-sized dining room adjoins the fully-equipped kitchen. There is a locked private storage room on the parking level for stowing your bikes and beach gear.

Living room recently refurbished, with new paint, decor, new sleep sofa and furniture, and new 48' Roku TV! Enjoy Amazon video, Pandora music, and many other Roku channels, all included and free of charge, plus cable channels, of course!

The maximum party size is four. I will consider five, but you will have to give me details about your party, like "we have an infant, we have grandma and grandpa, whatever". Unfortunately, I have found that some guests may take advantage. A party of six turns into a party of seven. And so on. I can tell you that there are seven sleeping choices. So a party of four or five will have a lot of flexibility. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. The living room has a queen size sleeper sofa. There are 2 bunk beds in a hallway alcove near the guest bath. Also in the living room is a daybed/sofa/chaise combination which opens from a sofa to roughly a twin size bed. I have a nice Graco portable crib, used just a few times by my grandson, just let me know if you need it.

Bed and bath linens are not included in the advertised rates. For an additional charge, I can provide bed and bath linens. When you make a reservation or request a quote, let me know if you desire linens. (Linens for the bunk beds/day bed are provided, no extra charge.)

Owner personally inspects and cleans prior to each arrival. Check-in time 3 p.m., check-out 10 a.m. I will give you the combination for the lockbox on the front door to get you in the condo. Once inside, there are additional keys and parking permits. Only once or twice has a guest had a problem getting in, and it was always due to "operator error". I think an advantage I offer compared to other properties is that I live in the same condominiums. So, I can usually respond quickly if there is any issue. But don't worry, I respect your privacy and just want you to enjoy your vacation. You will never see me, unless you need me for something. Sometimes, I can offer a little flexibility on the check-in/out times, depending on my calendar. But you will have to clear it with me first.

Ideally situated, the Tropical Winds condominiums enjoy the best of two beach experiences: On the ocean side you have the tranquility of a sleepy one-way street (Carolina Beach Ave. S.), and on the opposite side you have the hustle and bustle of Lake Park Blvd., with quick and easy access to the entire island. Easy walking or biking to restaurants, Carolina Beach Boardwalk and Saturday Farmers Market (in season) at the lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Hi, I'm Robert, the property owner. That's my grandson Max in the picture, visiting from Raleigh. I retired from Raleigh to Carolina Beach in 2008. I purchased a Tropical Winds condo in 2013 for my own residence. I really had no plans to buy another property for a rental, but in the summer of 2014, unit B-5 was available and I decided it was a good investment opportunity, and a place for my family to visit. Thank you for visiting my VRBO site. I am always excited to receive an inquiry or question from a prospective guest, and I promise to respond to you promptly (I'm an early to bed, early to rise guy, so it may be the next morning before you hear from me). Whenever you make an inquiry/booking request/reservation request, please tell me a little about yourself and the purpose of your trip. Not being nosy, it just gives me a little comfort level about my potential guests. I love guests of all descriptions, and am especially partial to small families and mature couples.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Tropical Winds is as good a location as any second-row condo in Carolina Beach, in my opinion. Many fun sites, activities, and restaurants are within easy walking or biking distance, and many more are a short drive away. But at the same time, it feels 'off the beaten path' because it has a quiet one-way street on the ocean side. During peak season, you get a little commotion on the other side (Lake Park Blvd.), but it's not bad, particularly if your windows are closed and the a/c on. There are many other things to like about Tropical Winds (Carolina Beach, too), but I think the location may be its best feature.
