About the property

Wake up to beautiful, unobstructed sunrises, and be lulled to sleep by the calming sound of the waves on your next vacation to Carolina Beach. Our 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home is ocean front with a balcony overlooking the beach and surf to enjoy on for your vacation. Our home sleeps 4 comfortably on a queen bed and sleeper sofa. Our unit is an end unit facing south letting lots of light in from three different directions. We are also on the top floor, allowing you to look over everything in every direction, without having noisy neighbors above you.

Our kitchen is equipped with all the necessities that you will need to make meals at the beach - coffee maker, toaster, blender, pots, pans, stock pot, dishes, mugs, and wine glasses.

Our home also has a laundry closet with a stackable washer and dryer for you to use. We also offer linen service if you wish to not bring your linens with you for $75/wk.

Our unit is right next to the beach access for those days that you want to enjoy the beach. We provide 4 beach chairs so there is no need to bring any from home.

If it happens to rain during your stay, there is plenty to keep you entertained inside. We have cable in the living room and bedroom. We have a DVD player in the living room, and DVD player in the master with some DVDs provided. There is also secure wireless internet throughout the property. Plus plenty of books and some board games to pass the time.

The unit has parking for two vehicles, and an area to park your boat or trailer if you want to bring it along for the trip.

We are approximately 1 mile from the boardwalk area, where there are restaurants and shopping galore, an arcade and amusement rides during the summertime. Also every Thursday night there are fireworks on the beach which you can enjoy down by the boardwalk or from the beach in front of our unit. Sunday nights there is a family movie at the lake (about 2 miles away). We are also one block from the fishing pier where you can buy bait and licenses, and only 2 blocks from the access to Freeman 4x4 Park.

If you are interested in booking less than a week, please contact us as we can provide you with nightly prices.

Finally the owners live next door - so if you encounter any problems they will be there personally to get your vacation back on track.

About Emily and Marcus Matzke

My husband and I are originally from Minnesota. In 2007, we decided to be adventurous and move to another state. We had visited the Outer Banks on our honeymoon, but it was tough to find housing and jobs on the Banks. Someone mentioned the Wilmington area, specifically Carolina Beach. We'd never even heard of it, but decided to visit and see what Pleasure Island was all about. We fell in love with the place the minute we drove over the bridge - you immediately felt like you were on vacation. A few years later, we were fortunate enough to buy our first place at the beach, and we decided we wanted to create a business where people can come to enjoy our wonderful beach and spend sometime reconnecting as a family. Five years later, we own five rental homes that we run ourselves and enjoy having people join us year after year to spend and admire beautiful Carolina Beach.

Emily and Marcus Matzke purchased this condo in 2015

Why Emily and Marcus Matzke chose Southern Coast

This unit was where we first lived when we moved to Carolina Beach. We fell head over heels for the abundance of windows and views from every room. It's a quiet neighborhood, and everyone you meet is friendly.

What makes this condo unique

This particular unit has had the kitchen totally renovated. While most have the kitchen blocked off with a bar area, ours is open so you can keep an eye on the beautiful landscape outside versus the cabinets blocking your view.

Amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

I was so incredibly impressed with this condo. It was so clean and beautiful. I've stayed in many different condos at Carolina Beach, but this was by far my favorite. The location is perfect, the condo is spotless, and Emily was so nice and helpful along the way. My dog loved it, too! I'd stay here every time I came to the beach if it were available!

My husband and I stayed here for a week with our 3 and 4 year old. The very first morning was windy so we flew kites on the beach for a bit, then around 10am, we saw dolphins while having coffee on the balcony! We saw them again two days later and once more on our last day. I watched the sunrise from the pier one morning and it was amazing. The condo was perfect for us. The kids slept on the pull out couch and we stayed in the bedroom. The ocean views were beautiful and we loved having the windows and sliding doors open to listen to the waves. I even liked walking up and down the 3 flights of stairs because it helped tire them out lol. We went into Downtown Wilmington a few times and if you like a good sandwich, Chops Deli is amazing. We could never get the clothes to fully dry in the dryer but they would dry quickly if we put them on the balcony under the sun. It was really quiet and peaceful and everyone we talked to on the island was kind. Our first night here our 4 yearold exclaimed "this was the first day of my life!" Which we are still laughing about. We would definitely stay here again.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

This cute one bedroom was more spacious than I expected it to be, as is the balcony. Most important, is the view. The ocean view from the living room/kitchen area, bedroom and balcony is wonderful. I would give five stars for that view alone. There is easy beach access (just around the other side of the building). I appreciated having two parking passes since my husband and I both needed to bring a vehicle. I also had a positive experience with the owner. Emily was friendly and responded quickly if I had any questions or issues but was also respectful of my privacy and valuable vacation time if I did not. I would definitely rent this again if we return to Carolina Beach!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the beach in this condo. The size and layout were perfect for the two of us, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the location was great, close to the pier and the uninhabited part of the beach beyond that. But what we loved most of all was sitting on the balcony watching the waves, the birds, and the surfers. The only glitch we had (lost wifi) Emily took care of promptly and effectively.

We enjoyed exploring the area as well. Besides walking a few trails at the state park, we took the ferry to Southport, where we enjoyed a walking tour. We spent an afternoon in Wilmington, and we especially loved paddling on the Black River among the bald cypress trees.

We highly recommend this clean and comfortable place in Carolina Beach and hope to return while our daughter is in Wilmington!
