About the property

Wonderful Beach House, Ocean And Salt Marsh Views, Expansive Decks With Hot Tub.

This beach house is arguably the most unique beach house in Carolina Beach. It was created solely with the relaxation and enjoyment of the occupants in mind. The upstairs of the house has a large great room with connecting kitchen and dining rooms. There is an outdoor covered porch on the 2nd floor to enjoy the views and to hang out / dine. The very large great room is divided in two. There is a 65 inch LED TV with full cable/DVD capability on one side for watching television/movies. The other side is a living room to enjoy the views of the ocean and salt marshes. The kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, etc. There is a large guest bedroom upstairs. Free internet / wifi is available inside and outside the house.

This house is not ocean front. However, it is directly aligned with a public beach access which is a block away. This allows for very nice views of the ocean to the east, a large salt marsh to the north, and great views of the surroundings from inside the house, from the 1st and 2nd floor decks and the outdoor hot tub on the 1st floor deck.

The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. All the bathrooms have granite vanity tops and large ceramic tiled showers with thick glass enclosures. The master bathroom also has an oversized bathtub. All 3 bedrooms have walk in closets.

The master bedroom is very large with a mini bar with refrigerator and serves as a suite with a sitting area with a very comfortable fold out couch. From this bedroom, there are views of the ocean and french doors that lead out to the built in hot tub as part of the very large decking system. There is a large foyer area with adjacent laundry room for drying beach towels etc. The 1st floor has 1 additional large guest bedroom.

The house has 3 large bedrooms with a large queen sized fold out couch in the master suite and 2 additional queen sized fold out couches in the great room. The additional fold out couches will accommodate 6 additional adults far a total of 12 adults. The fold out couches have new 'memory foam' mattresses and are very comfortable.

The 1st floor decking system is impressive in all that it has to offer. There is an array of very comfortable outdoor furniture that will accommodate up to 15 people. A built in hot tub seats 6 adults with views of the surrounding area. Beneath the covered portion of the deck is a granite tiki bar with sink and electrical outlets. A selection of small electrical appliances is available (toaster oven, electric grill, griddle, hot plate, toaster, coffee maker, blender) so that meals can be prepared outside if wanted. There are outdoor speakers and a stereo / CD player inside to listen to music while hanging out on the 1st floor deck.

All sheets, pillow cases, etc., bath and an ample supply of beach towels are included. The beds are already made. No need for a linen service. The kitchen is fully equipped including many small appliances for use inside and outside on the deck / tiki bar. Ample supply of laundry detergent, soap, shampoo, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, etc. Pretty much everything you will need is available in the house so you only have to bring food and personal items.

About Chris Holland

I am a former resident of Carolina Beach and still return to visit close friends. I built this house to enjoy the north end of Carolina Beach and as an investment. I built it with the philosophy of enjoying the beach, relaxing both inside and outside on the very large decks. In building the house, I tried to think of everything reasonably possible to add to the enjoyment of being at the beach as well as creating a 'different kind of beach house' that would be used by vacationers and as a result a good investment.

Chris Holland purchased this house in 2014

Why Chris Holland chose Carolina Beach

This beach house has as much to offer as any beach house in Carolina Beach. The combination of the ocean and salt marsh views, the large decks with comfortable furniture to relax, the built in hot tub, etc. will allow for the enjoyment of any family for their vacation.

What makes this house unique

Very large 1st floor deck with new outdoor furniture that will seat as many as 15 people. A built in hot tub is right outside the master bedroom. The covered portion of the deck has a granite tiki bar with electrical outlets and a wide selection of small appliances so that breakfast/lunch/dinner can be prepared.

We LOVED our stay at Gloucester House! Cozy, comfortable accommodations. Truly felt like home away from home. Owner extremely accommodating and actively participated in making our stay perfect in every way. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our week in Carolina Beach. I would recommend this property to anyone. We have a daughter in the area, and we hope to utilize this property anytime we visit her in the future.
