About Barbara Hannan

We live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, but we are in love with Carolina Beach. Growing up in Pennsylvania we always went to the Jersey shore and Florida. We live near the Gulf of Mexico but nothing beats the excitement of the Atlantic Ocean. We own the house, along with our two daughters and their husbands. Our daughter and I love to cook, so you know your kitchen will be well equipped. We take pride in knowing that our cleaning team does an excellent job. Most of all we love coming to the beach to relax and recharge. Sandstep satisfies all with its breath taking views, family friendly beach, and of course, the pool. What else do you need?

Barbara Hannan purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Barbara Hannan chose Carolina Beach

Carolina Beach is the perfect place for a family getaway. We wanted a house that was Ocean Front and had a pool, on an uncrowded beach.

What makes this townhome unique

Sandstep's location is prime. It is private and peaceful, yet you can walk to several restaurants and stores. Enjoy dinner on your deck with 'the best seat in the house'!!!

Wonderful! The pictures do not do it justice! We loved our stay! Everything about it was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults & 5 children in our group, and this was the perfect house for us. The proximity to the beach & the pool could not have possibly been better! We loved spending time with & getting to know our neighbors at the pool. 5 stars for sure! We will be back!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

bottom condo has a great layout and well stocked, nice furnishings.

I give it an A+ ......... Highly recommend this beach home.

the pool is shared by 4 buildings, a wonderful feature, but quite busy.

Perfect Beach Front Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Carolina Beach and most definitely will not be our last. We stayed at Sandstep 618#1 the summer of 2015 and are returning in August 2016. We are also booking already for summer 2017 to assure we can stay in our favorite vacation spot. The owners are beyond accommodating and helpful. They send you a very comprehensive list of things you need to know as well as local spots to visit. The first year we had a 2 year old so we had lots of questions and they were so timely with answering all of my emails. The house was nicely furnished, very clean and well stocked. You could not ask for a better location with quick access to the pool and beach. We have found our yearly spot for our families beach vacation and we could not be happier.

This was our first stay in Carolina Beach. Beach was clean and not crowded.

We are a three generation family that take yearly beach vacations.

We all LOVED it. The house was beautiful, clean and well stocked.

The owner was very helpful and wonderful to work with.

We are planning on returning again next year.
