Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

'Bella Vista' was named for its breathtaking views of one of North Carolina’s most beautiful beaches. Whether you are enjoying a fresh cup of coffee during sunrise, or sharing a bottle of wine at sunset, our huge private deck offers a spectacular panoramic view of the pristine beach and blue water. The deck can be accessed from the master bedroom and the living room. The inside of this newly renovated condo offers wave crashing views from almost every room.

Begin those life long vacation memories by leaving your oceanfront condo and stepping right onto the beach. There is a manned life guard stand from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Enjoy soaking up the sun, fishing, or dolphin watching. If you are lucky, you may get to see a mother loggerhead turtle and her babies. After the beach, you can wash off at the outdoor shower, and enjoy a dip in our pool that is private for the condo complex.

Carolina Beach, which is part of Pleasure Island along with Kure Beach and Fort Fisher, is located 15 miles from the historic port city of Wilmington. Charming Wilmington is known for its cobblestone roads along the Cape Fear River, antique shops, restaurants, and the Azalea Festival. Our location at Carolina Beach is considered the best on the island, boasting the widest beach and expansive views. Wake up early, walk across the street and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee and muffin, or go next door for some homemade pancakes. On your way back, stop at the lake that offers a paved walking trail, playground, paddle boats, and kayaking. We are also within walking distance to the boardwalk, arcade, shops, restaurants, and ice cream parlor and a short ride to the North Carolina Aquarium, historic Fort Fisher, movie theatre, charter boats, golf and other fun things to do. Pleasure Island hosts various festivals with live entertainment throughout the year. Stay with us and enjoy the Carolina Beach Jazz and Seafood Festival, Wilmington’s Azalea Festival or one of many summer evenings at the pavilion watching free outdoor movies with the children.

Come and enjoy the soothing ocean breeze in our beautiful oceanfront condo!

Great family memories

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week! My family and I drove in from the city and fell in love with this place!! Right on the ocean, we got to watch dolphins and have meals together right on the big deck. Walked to the cute little ice cream shop and restaurants. Pool wasn't open yet because it's only April so we will have to come back next year in the summer. Best part - my husband and I got to sleep with the door open so we could watch and hear the surf. Pretty cool!

Great Place But Didn't Return Our Deposit

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bella Vista. The condo was at a great location. The beach outside of the condo was never crowded but it was close enough to walk to the boardwalk. The condo was great. We really enjoyed our stay. However... It has been three months since we stayed and we have still not received our security deposit back. We have contacted Mark through email and phone multiple times but he has not returned our calls or emails. We left the place just as it was when we arrived. We even changed all of the light bulbs that had burnt out. It was a nice place to stay but if you'd like your deposit back I wouldn't recommend it.

Owner's Response: This was completely my fault, as I just forgot to mail the security deposit. I have already mailed the security deposit, along with a sincere apology. I will also be reviewing my records, to make sure that I haven't missed any others. We have owned the condo for over 10 years and this has never happened before.

Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Me and some family just spent a week at this condo. Mark was absolutely wonderful to work with and the location could not have been more perfect. We had two 6 year olds with us, so they loved the location to the beach and to the boardwalk. It was walking distance from the condo. It is so convenient to Fort Fisher and not too far from Wilmington. The four flights of stairs was worth it once you saw the view! Even though the pool was small, it was never crowded. The kids had it mainly to themselves all week and they loved that! The condo was spacious and we had everything we wanted. We cooked a lot while there, which saved a lot of money! When we decide to go back to Carolina Beach, I will be contacting Mark again!! Thank you so much for sharing your place with us!!

Excellent Location - Quiet Area, enjoyable Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great visit at this condo. The condo was clean and spacious and the view of the ocean was fabulous and relaxing. The kitchen was up to date, the beds were comfortable, and the living room furniture was also relaxing. This condo was the perfect place to be for Thursday night Fireworks and we liked there were several chairs to use on the deck, as well as a table when everyone was outside. .

While staying there we enjoyed visiting the aquarium with our 16 month old daughter, being so close to the park for stroller rides, swimming in the ocean, dinner in downtown Wilmington, Britt's Doughnuts for breakfast, fireworks from the deck, nightly walks on the beach, and time in the pool which was perfect for our daughter. We hope to make this condo a yearly trip for our family. The owners were great to work with and prompt in answering any questions we had prior to arriving for our stay.

Unbelievable View + Awesome Condo = Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time back to this rental and it was just as outstanding as the first. We have stayed in a lot of rentals along the coast and this unit has by FAR the best view we've seen. Not only did the open floor plan give us plenty of room (we had two couples and three kids between us) but it was super clean which is really important to my OCD husband! I also like to cook when I'm at the beach and was pleased to find the kitchen fully stocked (not to mention very upgraded) and I was excited to find all sorts of spices right there!

We also couldn't have been happier with the location, beach access literally RIGHT there, walking distance to the ice cream parlor, the beautiful lake across the street with paddle boating, and the farmers market were all right there just to name a few. The pool is just downstairs, private, clean, had new furniture and very relaxing.

I can't say enough about this place and we will be back our next trip to Wilmington! You never know how a rental is going to be until you get there so it's a relief when you find one you can return to again and again and feel that cozy, home away from home feeling.

All in all, you can tell this property is well cared for and loved! Can't wait to come back!
