About the Property
4 3.5 Baths with Elevator!; other side available too!
Carpe Diem - Seize the day at the beach! This is the new Carolina Beach experience for the discriminating vacationer.
This home, as well as the attached unit, known as Carpe Diem Too! is owned by Ms. Schoerke. The units are available separately or can be secured together for large gatherings for up to 20 guests! No where on Carolina Beach is there a home of this caliber or size to comfortably accommodate your large family gatherings!
You won't forget you are at the beach in this brightly decorated, non-smoking house that features four bedrooms - the master bedroom has a queen size bed, flat screen TV, antiques and master bath with over sized tub for two. The 2nd bedroom is colorful and boasts an antique iron full-size bed with fabulous mattress. Queen or two twin beds (your choice of configuration) in the 3rd sun-drenched bedroom; and the fourth bedroom with bunk beds is perfect for the kids.
The master bedroom has its own private balcony., walk in closet and is a sanctuary to relax. The bedroom with the Queen/twins has it's own patio in an enclosed and private backyard.
More spacious balconies with views of the ocean are on the 3rd and fourth floors.
The granite and stainless steel kitchen is fully-equipped with coffee maker and everything you'd find at home.
The bookshelves are packed with wonderful novels and nonfiction books. There are games for family and friends. And, flat screen televisions in the living area and master bedroom for snuggling in for a movie or your favorite tv shows after a day in the sun and water.
You can hear and see the waves from many rooms in the house and you're less than a two-minute walk until you are standing in the sand or jumping in the waves.
You are within walking distance and in the midst of great restaurants, nearby lake with outdoor family movies and Saturday farmer's market with local one-of-a-kind gifts, the family-friendly boardwalk with the Ferris Wheel, rides for tots and music for adults, homemade ice cream and scrumptious hot donuts, the aquarium and Fort Fisher.
Take surfing lessons, go scuba diving, fish in the waves, walk miles on the beach, enjoy the fireworks on Thursday nights from the balconies...or do absolutely nothing but worship the sun. It's all here for you!

About: Julie is a native of North Carolina, but lives in Nashville. She built her dream home and this is it. She is in the publishing industry, hence the amazing collection of books in the house. She has two grown children. Carpe Diem is where she is happiest. She built it as her dream home - warm and inviting for friends and family in all four seasons, but spacious enough to give everyone their own private space, inside and outside.
Why Wilmington Beach, Carolina Beach, NC, USA:
It was my lifelong dream to have a home at the beach that I could share with family and friend and was finally able to realize this dream when the exact piece of property I wanted became available and I built the custom dream house as my permanent home and refuge. My friend, Kim Duggan, manages the property for me, as my career has me traveling throughout the year. Kim lives within 5 miles of the property, with her husband and teenage son. She oversees the property with attention to detail, to make your vacation a joyful experience. She is readily available for questions, concerns, or needs.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nearly brand new. There is an elevator that makes it easy for mature adults who may find negotiating steps challenging or would prefer an easy way to transport luggage and groceries; or guests with special needs or disabilities. It is ideal for people who want to read, talk and have meals overlooking the beach with shade and would like a 60 second walk to a beach that is rarely ever crowded, has fantastic waves and miles to walk in the sand. This is a very cared for and loved home.
