Boardwalk - Within walking distance you'll find the newly renovated boardwalk. Ranked one of the top 10 boardwalks in the country by Food & Wine magazine, it is one of the last remaining beach boardwalks on the East Coast, where you can get your fill of famous homemade donuts, ice cream, and fudge, play in the arcade, see the ocean from the Ferris wheel, or dance the night away to live music. During the summer months, the Boardwalk is bustling with the sound of music, laughter and the squeals of kids of all ages as they whoosh and whirl past on the assortment of rides at the seaside amusement park and at extraordinary events like the weekly fireworks and concert series. Enjoy a free concert and fireworks on the boardwalk at Carolina Beach every Thursday night, weather permitting. Don't forget to go by Britt's donuts for a one of a kind experience.

Fort Fisher - Walk the battery of the Fort Fisher Civil War Battlefield located at the south end of the Island? Shop the gift shop for treasures. Enjoy the FREE Summer Concert Series at Ft. Fisher.

North Carolina Aquarium - The North Carolina Aquarium is a delight for all ages. Movies and programs for all are offered, and the staff is very helpful.

Cruise and fishing charters - Visit the Carolina Beach Marina down the street Take a sightseeing cruise or charter a fishing expedition. Anglers, the fishing is great! Fish on the beach, from the pier, catch a head boat, charter a boat, or launch your own at a public launch. There are many water sports to enjoy. You can rent or bring your own equipment for snorkeling, surfing and boating adventures.

On Pleasure Island you will also find the best seafood restaurants around, a park and small lake with paddle boats and walking trails, a tiki hut on the beach (you can listen to live bands), beach shops, bike rentals, and much more. In addition to the many parks, dog parks, trails and bike paths, the Carolina Beach State Park is nearly 1,000 acres of exploration and trails, including a boat launch area.

There is a bicycle path that runs along a part of the island. There are two piers on the island for fishing. Pleasure Island features various festivals throughout the year. The Spring Festival at Carolina and Kure Beaches features live entertainment, arts and crafts. Several Golf courses are located close by and there is a disc golf course at Kure Beach. There are several shops in the area featuring beach items ranging from clothing to home decor.

Stroll the waterfront, and enjoy fine dining at the numerous restaurants located on the Cape Fear River. Enjoy antiques, original art and handcrafted jewelry.

During the summer outdoor activities are scheduled along the Wilmington riverfront. A ferryboat makes the half hour trip to the quaint town of Southport. Cars or Bicycles may be taken onto the ferry that goes from Fort Fisher to Southport, both great places to visit.

Enjoy the charming atmosphere of Carolina beach. Living local will certainly bring you back to your simple childhood days at the beach. This beach experience will strike the right balance between isolated beaches and the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach.

La Casita is a wonderful place to spend a stress free vacation.

  • 4 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay somewhere that provided many of the supplies I've traditionally lugged with me to rental units on vacations. The kitchen was particularly well equipped. What wasn't there could wait till our next trip to the grocery to pick up. It encouraged me to want to leave some of my own supplies behind. I guess this is like paying it forward.

While not the fault of the owner, we lost two beach days from a "nor-easter" that went up the coast. We watched TV and Netflix, read, ate out, and went to the aquarium. We did see the dolphins several mornings. We would definitely recommend "La Casita" and would consider coming back next year.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved La Casita! Everything was exactly as stated on the website. Tony was extremely helpful when making the reservation and really cared about our family having a great time as their guest. The condo was very clean and just right for our family of four. The views of the beach and ocean were incredible and the sunset view on the back deck was a welcome surprise! My family was extremely happy with our stay here and we cannot wait to go back!

La Casita

  • 5 of 5

We loved La Casita! The condo was so cutely decorated and it was clean and cozy. I loved that we were right on the beach. The beach and ocean was amazing. Carolina Beach offers a lot to do for the whole family. My three kids said it was the best vacation! We loved all the shells and brought back a lot of them.

Thank you Tony and Mary! Your condo had so much to offer and it felt like home.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children and I had a great week at the beach. La Casita had everything we needed and the owners were very friendly and responsive. My kids enjoyed the bunk beds and the beach toys and equipment that was provided. We enjoyed coffee out on the deck each morning and loved watching the Pelicans and Dolphins. Thank you for a wonderful week, we hope to be back next year!
