About Scott Shackleton

I'm a travel addict and I know how important clean and convenient accomodations are to enjoying a vacation. I'm also love my pet, so I understand wanting to bring pets on vacation. As long as Fido is well behaved and doesn't bark excessively, he or she is welcome.

Why Scott Shackleton chose Carolina Beach

This condo is one of 5 I own at Carolina Beach. Pleasure Island is small enough to provide a relaxed beach atmosphere without over-commercialization. At the same time there is a high enough population in the summer to attract top rate restaurants and entertainment. It is close to Wilmington NC and all that is offererd there.

I love spending time in Carolina Beach when my condo's are not rented. I like to hang out on the beach with friends, walk for miles, visit the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, ride my bike and relax with good books. Anytime of year is a great time to visit Carolina Beach. Spring and Fall are actually my favorite times.

Worst Stay in Our Travel History

  • 1 of 5

Worst lodging experience in 50+ years of travel. Extreme NOISE from unit above, heard every step, flushing of water, children running and screamimg. Located next to construction site, so plan on around 06:30am wake up with nonstop deafening noise until 5:30p. So, if you are seeking rest and relaxation this booking is not for you. We had to leave in AM and return in PM. Could not sit on deck or open windows secondary to clouds of dusts and debris with heavy construction within 10 feet. Owner was fully aware of our stated goal of seeking to spend a few QUITE days at the beach, yet made the booking. Frankly, we consider this fraud in booking. We should have stayed at other locations on the beach, Marriott being $50.00 less per night. Be prepared to be suspect of cleanliness, construction dust and debis within unit, bed blanket was covered in matted hair and other unknown fibers. Yet you will be charged a cleaning fee. Carolina Beach is beautiful, so seek other lodging. Some form of refund would be appropriate, but that would require being customer service minded. +Pet Friendly

Owner's Response: Obviously I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. For future renters reading this: First, this guest did call me the first morning of their stay to report that there was a loud family upstairs. I called that family, who had not listed children on their reservation, so I had no way of knowing they had children with them. They indicated that their children were running after a 4 hour car ride the night before when they arrived, but were in bed 1/2 hour later and they would be as considerate as possible going forward. They were very nice. I asked this guest to call me back if the noise didn't improve and never received a call back. Please note that I am replacing the flooring in the unit above this one to minimize future noise issues. That will be done by 11/21/17. However, this is a condo and you will likely still know when someone is staying above you and be able to hear footsteps on the floor. There is a building next door being renovated, but that is not happening on the weekends. If you wish to book during the week, feel free to check on the status and I will let you know. I have been told the noisy part of the work is almost done. This guest booked only for a weekend. The guest did tell me they found a blanket rolled up in the closet and when they opened it, there was dog hair on it. I asked if they wanted my cleaning crew to bring them a new blanket or clean anything and they said "No, it's really only the blanket, we've travelled all over, and this is fine, we just need to people upstairs to be quiet". As with this guest, if ever you rent one of my condos and something is not right, I request that you call me immediately and I will do everything possible to correct it. We don't issue refunds after a stay is over. That's sort of like eating your entire meal at a restaurant, going back a week later and telling them you didn't like it after all and want a refund. If you have a problem, we need to know that during the stay . In cases where something went wrong beyond my control and was impossible to fix, I will do a refund. I urge my future renters to read several reviews. If you look at my overall average rating, the vast majority of my guests have a great stay, appreciate the location, and find the condo comfortable and relaxing.

Amazing trip to the beach, beautiful and peaceful...

  • 5 of 5

Scott's property is absolutely beautiful. We loved the view of the ocean from the balcony and were incredibly comfortable. We had a bit of an issue with construction noise and Scott was way beyond accommodating for us.

We had the time of our lives enjoying the amazing beach right behind the condo and even saw some dolphins while swimming.

We will absolutely be back for another stay at this property. Thanks so much Scott!

Views are indescribable - especially at sunrise! Much less commercialized and busy than other areas, but there are plenty of good restaurants and stores. We had a great time!

The property contact Scott was the best we have ever dealt with. Replies were quick, and he worked with any requests we had.

Property is recommended for sure!!
