Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach, NC, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
