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.

Owner's Response: Apologize again to our guests for the unfortunate timing of the outside construction work on our buildings balconies. This was out of my control, scheduling came from the man above! Work completed and all new beautiful carpet for all units! *distraction of outside work was the reason for a 4 1/2 star rating.

Awesome location for family friendly stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 3-day visit at the condo! The location is perfect. We used the car once when we got there to pick up some items from the grocery store (about 1 mile away) and then never had to use it again. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. We had our 4 kids with us (ages 15-9). We were able to rent boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas right at the corner and they carted them to the beach and set them up for us. The beach is very clean and not too crowded. The beds in the condos were very comfortable, even the foldout sofa in the living room. We didn't do much cooking for the short stay but the kitchen seemed well stocked. Having the washer/dryer in the unit was very helpful. We would definitely stay again!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fantastic for visiting Carolina Beach. It is close to the beautiful, newly opened, boardwalk. The beach is just a few steps away. The furniture is new and spotless, as is the carpeting and paint. I am a cook, and was very pleased and surprised with the kitchen furnishings. We even had an icemaker, and knives that were sharp. Debbie was easy to contact, and always answered any questions right away. We loved our weekend, and will stay here again.

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.
