About Debbie Jensen/Diane Bell

My name is Diane Bell, I am one of the original owners of unit #103 at Carolina Surf. My husband Frank and I along with his brother Tommy and wife Dot Bell purchased our unit from Mr. Melvin Vanderburg in 1988. I am now the sole owner of this unit and am extremely excited to share this beautiful property. I have so many wonderful memories over all these years with my children, grandchildren family and friends.

Why Debbie Jensen/Diane Bell chose Southern Coast

This condo is very special to myself - my children and their children. We as a family have been coming to Carolina Surf for over 25 years. We intend to carry this tradition on for many generations to come!

What makes this condo unique

Carolina Surf is the perfect place for a family vacation. Everyone is so friendly, the beaches are clean and not over crowded.

Updated and well-maintained condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo felt fairly well updated, even if some aspects were not so new, they were well-maintained. The interior was comfortable and we had no issue with our 7-mo playing on the carpet (not the case with many places we have stayed). Beach access was about as easy as you can get without a boardwalk from your balcony. Well stocked kitchen made for an easy stay. I do not hesitate to recommend.

The vicinity to the boardwalk was nice, though I imagine at peak periods, it could be noisy and not as pleasant.

The building as a whole, though, and pool area, are not as nice as the interior of the condo.

The lack of linens also makes for a difficult trip. It seems to be the rule on the NC coast that linens are not included or cost extra, no the case in FL and other places we have stayed. It was not clear from the website if linens were included or not, or even available for a charge, we couldn't tell until we got the contract. Was a little disappointed on this point, as we picked this property over another thinking that it had this included.

Fun Great Location Clean Plenty of Room loved the balcony

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip. Some old work girlfriends spent the weekend at Debbie's condo and could not have been more pleased. Very clean with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths was terrific. There were 5 of us and more than enough room. The kitchen had everything we needed. We parked the car and walked everywhere. Beachfront afforded us some beautiful sunrises. We loved the balcony and there was plenty of room. Debbie was a great host providing all the codes, extra keys and lots of local information. We all said we would come again. Thank you for a wonderful time. We Ioved the condo and Carolina Beach. .

Condo at Carolina Surf -A great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the condo. It was so close to the beach!! The condo was clean when we arrived. All the beds were comfortable! Loved the beach decor. We were able to watch the Thursday night fireworks right from the balcony. It was a great vacation for 5 of us! Hope to get back to stay there again.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was incredible. My boyfriend, and I Jamie had the best time. Laying on the beach soaking up the sun, and the evening sunsets were so romantic. We can't wait to visit again.

A wonderful experience in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family reunion with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Very clean. Checkin and out was seamless. Comfortable with a kitchen with all the appliances and necessities that we needed. And, most important, the owners were very responsive and friendly during the pre-stay communications, and prompt with the deposit afterwards.

The location was perfect, too. Very convenient to the Public Boardwalk, restaurants, and the beach was a simple walk on a private boardwalk over the bluffs.

An exceptional week!

This beautiful mid-rise directly on the oceanfront has elevator, outdoor pool and is located near downtown Carolina Beach! Enjoy the Family activities on Carolina Beach Boardwalk! Nearby Carolina Beach Lake offers Sunday night Family movies! Superior Restaurants within minutes of this location! One of Carolina Beach's finest locations !

Welcome to Carolina Beach, a quaint beach town filled with Southern charm, situated on a barrier island located off the southern tip of North Carolina. Enjoy the many year round activities this town attracts. The island offers miles of pristine beaches, local restaurants serving fresh seafood, retail shops, sight seeing, fishing, surfing, boating, snorkeling, diving, party boat cruising, outdoor entertainment, bicycling, nightlife and much, much more...

Right in the heart of Carolina Beach, our oceanfront building is located directly on the beach and is virtually right next door to the Carolina Beach Boardwalk which features Britt's Donuts. The boardwalk also offers amusement park style rides and games, an arcade, dining, shopping, outdoor adventure rental equipment, and live entertainment and fireworks.

Even though the boardwalk operates on a seasonal basis, there are plenty of year round places to dine and shop within walking distance of our unit. If you are involved in an event taking place at the Courtyard Marriott and Convention Center, we are a stone's throw away.

If you travel just 4 miles south, you'll find the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Fort Fisher State Historic Site and the N.C. Fort Fisher Ferry which takes you (and your vehicle) to the unique seaside city of Southport, N.C.

If you're really feeling adventurous on land, both ends of the island offer the option of driving your vehicle right on the beach. A fee is charged and a four wheel drive vehicle is recommended. Jeeps are available for rent locally.

If you have a boat, three public boat ramps are also available on the island:

1. Carolina Beach State Park

2. Carolina Beach at Snow's Cut Bridge

3. Fort Fisher

If you're an avid golfer, there are several public golf courses to enjoy off the island.

Beau Rivage Golf & Resort (7.4 mi)

Pine Vally Country Club (12 mi)

Wilmington Municipal Golf Course (13 mi)

Castle Bay Golf Course (35 mi)

Belvedere Country Club (36 mi)

Magnolia Greens Golf Course (22 mi)

Cape Fear National Golf Course 25 mi)

Old Fort Golf Course (28 mi)

Lakes Country Club (37 mi)

South Harbour Golf Links (44 mi)

Located 15 - 20 minutes away (by car) you can find additional activities in historic downtown Wilmington. Take a horse and buggy tour throughout the city, stroll along the Cape Fear River, visit the U.S.S. Battleship North Carolina, look a snake in the eye at the Cape Fear Serpentarium, buy some fresh herbs at the seasonal farmer's market or dine at one of the many restaurants Wilmington has to offer.

Located 15 - 20 minutes away (by car) you can find additional activities in the Mayfaire/Landfall Center. Shop at one of the many name brand retail shops, dine at one of the many restaurants or catch a movie at the Regal Mayfaire Stadium 16 & IMAX. Another place of interest in the Mayfaire/Landfall area is Airlie Gardens, home to formal gardens, wildlife, walking trails, more than 100,000 azaleas and the famous 467 year old Airlie Oak.

Families that are looking for additional entertainment can spend a day at Jungle Rapids, which is an outdoor waterpark. Kids can also enjoy riding the go karts, playing a round of putt putt golf or challenging themselves at one of the many arcade games offered.
