Purchased in 2001 as a family beach retreat, this cozy third floor walk up condo has provided our family with the perfect island getaway to enjoy fun-filled days and nights. In 2013, we realized our dream and moved to the island - now we offer our simple, comfortable, well-appointed beach getaway for others to enjoy.
*Top floor end unit positioned over the outdoor pool with views of the beach and ocean beyond from the spacious deck.
*Very short walk on the beach to the Tiki Bar and Grill, and the Ocean Grill Restaurant for live music, beach front pier bar, and one of the best restaurants on the island (about a tenth of a mile walk North from the private beach access!).
*All you need to bring is your bathing suit, sunscreen, toothbrush and favorite books to read.
*The condo is located in and has a GPS address of Carolina Beach.
*Seas the Day was named for the 'carpe diem' approach - making the most of each day. It's one of a few vacation condos updated to ''you thought of everything" status.
*Private beach access with just a few steps across the lush ocean front community lawn
*A well-placed outside shower to rinse off your sunscreen, beach sand and ocean salt
*Ocean facing swimming pool has all deck surround with room to play and dine, raised gazebo, comfortable chairs for sunning and reading. The grill is charcoal and is located on the lush ocean facing lawn - perfect area for grilling, tossing Frisbee, and then taking a dip in the water.

* Wilmington downtown is approximately a half hour drive. Busy nightlife, antique stores, the Battleship North Carolina, a pretty historic district.
*No pets are permitted (we love our animals, but the quick cleaning and turn-around required for our immaculate and busy vacation rental unit means we cannot allow pets)
*Definitely non-smoking, ashtrays are provided for use on the deck.
We live nearby on the island, and we love sharing Seas the Day with friends, family and guests. We spent countless summer days and evenings on the beach beside the property - with our two sons surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, snoozing in the sun. One son is a junior in high school and currently volunteers at the nearby Fort Fisher Aquarium in the education department. One son is a junior at UNC-Chapel Hill and teaches surf lessons right up the beach at the Tony Silvagni Surf School on his summer breaks from school.
Scott & Stephanie Boyles purchased this condo in 2001
Purchased in 2001 as a family beach retreat, this cozy condo has provided our family with the perfect island getaway to enjoy fun-filled days and nights on the shore. Carolina Beach, located on Pleasure Island, is a unique, historic beach town with uncrowded beaches and amenities and fun for singles, couples, and families with children. In 2013, we realized our dream and moved to the island - now we offer our simple, comfortable, well-appointed Carolina Beach getaway for others to enjoy.
*Private beach access for guests and unit owners
*Beach facing swimming pool
*Private guest closet outfitted with the 'extras' you need for an amazing day at the beach: beach chairs, boogie boards, and more
*Beach front Tiki Bar & Grill and Ocean Grill Restaurant just a very short walk up the beach. Live music, oceanfront tiki bar pier, and one of the very best restaurants on the island
The owners were very responsive and easy to deal with. Private beach access, private pool sheltered from the street and the beach were great features.
Had a thank you email and another email stating refund of deposit before I even got home.
Close to all the conveniences, but just far enough away so that we could relax without the noise of the conveniences.
Enjoyed using the kitchen. Could use a couple of pans and a new spatula, but had everything we needed, down to the toaster, blender, etc.
Sitting on the deck and overlooking the pool and the beach while eating lunch, or relaxing with a drink in the moonlight were also enjoyable.
Seas the Day was exactly what we were looking for! The condo accommodated everything we needed plus it had a pool and beach access. If you are a couple looking for a place to stay that is just for you two, this is the place! When we return to Carolina Beach we will definitely refer to Seas the Day again.
I was very impressed with our condo. Everything was as shown in the pictures. All the amenities you could need. Great location & good communication from the owners. It was clean & we would stay here again.
This property was very clean. Every detail was provided (Laundry detergent, dish detergent, coffee ect.) The bedding and towels were quality linens. The layout was good providing enough room for family of four. Extra fans were provided which helped block out street noise for sleeping. It was easy to feel at home in this condo.
The only draw back is that it is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, making it tiring to go up and down many times in a day. The deck is in need of sanding/staining, we didn't go on the deck in bare feet. Needs more ice trays as there is no ice-maker in the freezer.
Overall it was a good experience and the flexible dates allowed us to stay only a few days, as most rentals require 7 days.
The condo was lovely and right next to the beach. The here is a big deck off the living room that lets in a lot of natural light during the day. If we come back to stay in Carolina beach again I would definitely book this property again.
Scott and Stephanie have thought of everything. The towels, chairs, and toys for the beach were a very nice touch. The condo was as advertised. It had everything we needed for our 3-day weekend trip. We really enjoyed eating dinner outdoors on the 3rd floor deck. We would certainly stay here again if the opportunity arises.
Close to the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Fort Fisher Historic Site, the North Carolina Ferry System Southport Ferry, the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, the North Carolina State Park at Carolina Beach, Kure Beach Pier, the restaurants in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, the new disc golf course in Kure Beach, Carolina Beach skatepark, and shopping in Carolina Beach, approximately 15 miles south of Wilmington.
