About Cathleen O'Hannigan

I searched for the perfect condo on Carolina Beach for two years and finally found it in July, 2014. I am a writer so I wanted a place to retreat to and write in peace with a spectacular view. I found it and decided to rent it out to vacationers who would appreciate this beautiful home as much as I do.

Cathleen O'Hannigan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Cathleen O'Hannigan chose Southern Coast

I love Carolina Beach, its Festivals, Outdoor Movies, Boardwalk, Fishing, Jet Ski rentals, Boogie-Boarding, seafood and love being close to charming downtown Wilmington. I chose this property because it is by far the nicest and most spacious that I have seen with the kind of view that I love.

What makes this condo unique

I love the view, the corner unit, the luxurious interior, the sound of the ocean, the peaceful location away from the noise and party-ers, the pebble floor of the master shower, the fun kitchen to cook in (and enjoy the view from).

Winter break

  • 4 of 5

The well-stocked condo and its ocean-front location were perfect for our stay in Carolina Beach and we had a great time there, especially as the weather was warm for the time of year allowing us to eat most of our meals on the covered deck. The CD player might be better placed on a table rather than the floor as it was rather dusty and difficult to see the operating buttons, but the condo seemed generally clean and well presented.

The recommendations were greatly appreciated and we enjoyed some lovely meals at recommended restaurants. We enjoyed that we mostly had the beach to ourselves, apart from a myriad of sea birds and the odd fishing boat. We were exceptionally fortunate to see dolphins close to shore near the boardwalk, accompanied by humpback whales and even a whale breaching. And we accidentally got to witness the extensive Christmas parade!

All in all, a fun-filled few days. Thank you for having us.

Carolina Beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved Cathleen's condo! The interior has been completely re-modeled and is fabulous. The newly re-modeled kitchen and covered porch were very conducive to cooking and eating in the condo. I also enjoyed being on the northern end of Carolina beach as it was quieter. Overall, a great experience and I look forward to returning! Gill Reames

Appliance failures - no assistance from owner

  • 1 of 5

We arrived on Monday - when we tried to use the washing machine, it didn't work. We notified owner - she assured us she would have someone out next morning. Didn't hear from anyone, contacted owner next evening - she said she was still working on it - had contacted 17 people and couldn't get anyone to come. She said she was going out of the country on Thursday and her assistant would continue to try to find a repairman. Never heard from anyone. On Thursday, I decided to try to call someone myself. The first two local repairman I called WOULD have been available had they been called on Tuesday - however, this late in the week, they weren't available until next week. Kind of hard to be at the beach without a functioning washing machine - especially when we're encouraged to bring all our own linens. DO NOT RECOMMEND

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in "The Dunes" over Thanksgiving. Our visit really was perfect in every way. The condo was very clean, updated, quiet, comfortable and attractive. It has a lovely deck with gorgeous views of the ocean where we spent hours watching dolphins play in the waves and and pelicans skimming the water. It is an ideal place to the pink sky brighten as the sun rose, and for admiring moon-lit waves. The kitchen is well-equipped. We celebrated Thanksgiving AND a birthday with delicious home-cooked meals. Furniture was nicely arranged to promote conversations. Beds were very comfortable. We are grateful to the owner for allowing us to stay at her lovely property!
