About Kimberly Leggett

I purchased this home as my primary residence last year, and live full-time on the top floor. I have lived in Carolina Beach for 5 years, and can answer any questions you may have about life on Pleasure Island. This home was formerly known as the Pier House, and boasted repeat travelers for more than 10 years. The rental units have recently been renovated, and reflects the coastal living atmosphere of our beautiful beach. My goal is to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible, and hope that you will also become a repeat traveler!

Kimberly Leggett purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kimberly Leggett chose Southern Coast

The views are spectacular. One look at this property and I was sold - literally! Located at the end of the Island, it's a quiet retreat - with a spot for surfers, fishermen and beachcombers. Traffic is minimal, because we're at the end of the beach where you can take your 4WD out on the beach if you purchase a pass. Just a couple of miles back into town, you'll find a grocery store, a large variety of restaurants, shopping, convenience stores, drug stores, etc. Enjoy a peaceful walk on the uncrowded beach, fish from the pier, or take a ride on the waves - it's all right here!

What makes this apartment unique

Pleasure Island is also home to Ft. Fisher - a Civil War battleground, and one of NC's Aquariums. Board the ferry to Southport & Oak Island, or continue on to Bald Head Island and explore the lighthouse.

Perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was clean and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The beach was in view and right across the little street, so we walked there everyday. Our two small children loved the stay and location as well. The beach amusement park and boardwalk were within close driving distance, so it was great to take the children to have fun there as well. Britt's Donuts was an absolutely delicious place!! Their warm donuts are our FAVORITE! Every final touch put into this beach house is greatly appreciated, from the extra wall hooks throughout, the laundry room on site, the bright appearance, the closet spaces, the roominess of the house, etc. We had fun and enjoyed this beautiful beach home. We also received our deposit back promptly. Thank you to the owners!

Best place to stay in Carolina Beach by far

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here numerous times and you can't beat it. Perfect condo in perfect location. The owner Penny is the best and she knows everything about Carolina Beach. You will not find a better place to rent. I promise.

Excellent beach house! Spacious and relaxing. I will definitely go back and stay hopefully for a month next time. The owners were very attentive and resolved any issues or questions I had very quickly! I highly recommend to young families, mature families or couples. Just don't book when i want it.

A Beach Life

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying here. This was a first for me renting a beach condo for vacation. I LOVED IT!

I loved the roominess we had! No more motel/hotels for me! The rooms were clean & nicely decorated. What you see in the pictures is really what you get. I loved being close to the pier for fishing-only $10 a day, and you can walk out for free anytime. I was their first guest to stay and I'm already booked for a June trip! The landlords have lived in Carolina Beach long enough to know the best places to eat and shop and will be glad to share any recommendations they have with you! So, hurry and make your reservation before they get booked up!
