About the property

Beautiful beach, sparkling swimming pool, stunning sunrises, simple pleasures

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.

*Wash off the sand with the separate foot faucet at the foot of the stairs and hang your towels to dry

*There are boogie boards to ride and a bike lane to ride in (bikes not provided)

*4 Beach Relaxation Chairs

*Large parking area

*The partially covered deck is perfect for relaxing in the shade or sunshine with a late afternoon beverage

*Ceramic tile floor and berber carpet minimizes cleaning issues and blinds allow personal sunshine and privacy control.

*The bedroom is separated from the living area by the new bathroom with a tub and shower. The bedroom has a queen bed, a spacious closet, ample drawer space, flat screen tv with blu ray dvd. Bed linens, towels, beach towels enough for four.

*A cozy dining area and table with four comfortable chairs, two convertible sofas (one full and one love seat size) that have been enhanced for a more comfortable sleeping experience, an entire closet for storage, a flat screen television on a reticulating shelf with DVD housed in a handsome cabinet, a stacked front loading washer and dryer, and a bar with three stools for snacking or computer surfing with the included WIFI broadband internet cable access in an open floor plan

*The galley kitchen includes a great double sink, a new dishwasher, pull out trash bin, ample cupboard space, a new stove, a new microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, blender, dishes, pots and pans, glasses, utensils, linens.

*Short distance from the condo is the Carolina Beach Boardwalk and Lake, State Park, Kure Beach Fishing Pier, a skatepark, restaurants, the North Carolina Aquarium, Fort Fisher, and the ferry to Southport.

* 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.

About Scott & Stephanie Boyles

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

Why Scott & Stephanie Boyles chose Carolina Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

*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

Great Location with excellent owners

  • 4 of 5

The condo was even better than described(new laminate floors instead of carpeting shown in photos). It is located very close to everything! The condo was plenty roomy for 4 adults and a 1 year old. Also the parking lot level storage closet was a life saver! It was stocked with toys, boogie boards, chairs and an umbrella.

Stephanie was very quick to respond to me and helpful with some minor issues we had (unrelated to quality of the condo).

The room is also soundproofed well, i don't think we heard any of the other tenants the entire week.

The only "Cons" of this condo are the many steps up to the room which in fairness is mentioned as being top floor. The view from the deck is mostly just the building across with a small glimpse of the pool and ocean, again you can see this in the photos.

I would definitely recommend this room if you dont mind a limited view and lots of stairs, everything else was a great value for the cost!

Thanks Stephanie!

Great location! The owners thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location. We enjoyed walking on the beach to dinner, the kids loved the pool and we appreciated the convenience and beauty of being oceanside. The home owners provided everything one would need to stay on their property. They even provided beach towels, beach toys and chairs. We were able to try skim boarding with the provided boards! The unit isn't luxurious, but it was comfortable and we had a great time!

Clean, comfortable, great access

  • 4 of 5

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.
