About the property

Expansive views up and down the whole island - lots of windows

NEW FOR 2016: As we completely renovated the condo from top to bottom in 2015, we only needed to add a new set of sliders off the second bedroom. Enjoy!.

Master Bedroom - King size bed

Second Bedroom - Queen size bed

Third Bedroom - Bunk bed with 1 Twin and 1 Full size bed

Living room - Queen sleeper sofa

,For a truly great beach experience, come stay at Mimi's Place, our oceanfront condo on Carolina Beach. You'll walk in and say "Wow" once you see what we've done. And when you notice all the windows and sliders we have overlooking the ocean, you'll understand why we think this is the best condo on the whole island. The views are amazing!

This is a third floor (top floor) condo with expansive views of the whole beach. We have three bedroom, 2 full baths, a large ocean side deck, a balcony off the master bedroom facing the inlet, and another balcony off the second bedroom looking out toward the ocean. We have large flat screen wall mounted TV's in the living room and master bedroom, Wifi, a DVD player, DVD's, games, and books for you to enjoy. The master bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has bunk-beds: twin on top and full on the bottom. We also have a new queen size sleeper sofa in the living room.

We are a little island but with lots of fun things to do: the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher Civil War museum, our famous boardwalk, two fishing piers, Britts Donuts (an institution since 1939), Squigliey's Ice Cram Shop, and Freeman Park - where you can drive out and camp right on the beach. We offer free live bands, carnival rides, and fireworks during the summer and of course have some delicious seafood restaurants. What more could you want! You can book your reservation right from our website or if you prefer, give us a call and we'll be glad to help. (910)-409-6687.

Nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time at this condo. The reservation, communication, and check in was seamless. It was comfortable and had a great view. We spent most of our time in the spacious living area and appreciated the open floor plan and sweeping views on the balcony. We like to exercise so the steps were a fun challenge to get all of our belongings up to the condo. Probably not a good choice for those that have health issues. The parking was fine b/c there were no other cars but I can see how this could be interesting with large vehicles if the condos were full. The beach was secluded during the exceptionally cold weekend we were there making it extra quiet and peaceful. There was a painting crew making a ruckus when we arrived, but they only worked our first day so we lucked out not having them work on the weekend of our trip. We watched dolphins from the balcony, visited the aquarium, ate lots of seafood (recommend Surf House), checked out Wilmington, rode our road bikes on Topsail Island, and ran from Fort Fisher to and across Bald Head Island taking ferries back to our starting point - made for a great and adventurous 15 miles! Bald Head Island was really neat and the trails were gorgeous there. All in all a great trip!

Great Property, Great Views, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Even though Mimi's Place can comfortably sleep 10 people and seat 10 for eating, it was just my wife and I spending a wonderful four nights there to celebrate her birthday. Great condo with a fantastic beach. It was cool so we had a have a jacket to walk the beach. Mimi's Place was very clean and it has all the amenities and kitchen supplies. Our king size bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. We chose not to take the linen package so we brought our own sheets and pillows. The complete re-furbishing of Mimi's Place really makes it modern, bright and very open.

Two things worth mentioning -- if you have mobility issues walking up four flights of stairs could be a challenge. It wasn't for us and my wife had just recently had total knee replacement surgery! We did not have ANY issue with parking or having to play "switch cars" in the parking area, but we could see where this would require some cooperation and understanding with your neighbors during peak rental times. However, very manageable.

Mimi's Place was great and we saw the Carolina Beach Christmas Parade (great) while dining at Havan's (excellent). We, also, had dinner at Michael's Seafood and Freddie's -- both excellent. Try the seafood chowder at Michal's and anything at Freddie's -- you WILL take home a carry-out leftover box from Freddie's.

Now, I would be remiss if I didn't say that A1 Property Management was great to work with. David and his family team were GREAT and easy to work with and they were very accommodating.

Spectacular views and a stunning 4th floor unit!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing and I would give it more stars if possible!!

The views are spectacular from the living area and porch. The unit is light, clean and well equipped. Also has a hair dryer and a blender which I didn't notice on the inventory but were appreciated. We cooked quite a bit and enjoyed all the pots, pans, utensils etc. Weather was superb - even in the 60-70's it was very warm and comfortable on the porch and beach because of the sun and limited wind. Access to some beach chairs was greatly appreciated.

Unit was quiet and a great base for exploring the area. Grocery store and restaurants nearby and less than 30 minutes to historic downtown Wilmington. We ate at numerous great seafood places. On Sunday we watched football at a sports bar where everyone was friendly and welcoming. We had considered renting bikes or kayaks but the beach and unit were so wonderful we enjoyed our time there instead.

Parking is tight but everyone worked together and this was not a problem for us. Stairs also were not an issue and it was nice to be on the top floor.

My only small criticism is that I feel the approximately $150 linen fee was too high. My spouse and I flew in from Texas and only needed one set of bed linens and towels. No beach towels were included with the linens either.

Would definitely return!! Great place - thanks!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is stunning. From the moment you walk through the front door and see the view all of your daily stress goes away. The living space is very nice. The kids loved the bunk beds, mother was comfortable in the second bedroom, and the master was very comfortable. There was enough space so that we never felt that we were on top of each other. The kitchen has everything you need for a beach vacation. We only ate breakfast and lunch in the condo, so we had what we needed. The deck was perfect! The chairs were a little wobbly, so we kept them near the door wall, but they were the perfect height to sit and watch the people on the beach and the waves roll in. On Thursday nights there are fireworks on the boardwalk, lucky for us we had the best view right from the deck! For those with kids, there were plenty of beach toys and a couple of boogie boards available to use in the closet. Like others have said the parking is very awkward. We made friends with the neighbors who had a smaller car than we did and they agreed to always park in the back spot. Overall would definitely recommend.

Great Spring Break Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, awesome place to stay! We had a wonderful time! Even more beautiful than the pictures, and the view is a million dollar view! The stairs are a little tough, when moving luggage up and down, but the view makes it worth it! Very clean and the decor is also beautiful! The stairs to the beach access are also gone, so you have to navigate up and down the dune. We didn't mind, but anyone who this might pose a physical challenge to should be aware. Parking is tight, but not as big a deal as we thought, so I guess we were prepared and it wasn't so bad. The view and a beautiful, clean place to stay was worth all of it! We would stay again.

Location, Location, Location!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is absolutely beautiful and is in the perfect location!!! I was able to prepare breakfast and sit and watch the sunrise over the ocean. I was able to see the sunset in the evening from the deck. I was able to get some extra exercise everyday with the steps and I appreciated being on top. With the exception of renovation banging below one day this trip was wonderful and I will definitely check to see when we can return.
