About the property

Top Floor, Closest To the Beach! Ocean views galore!

If you're looking for an oceanfront stay in one of the best locations on Carolina Beach with fabulous ocean views then look no further! Enjoy coffee on the deck to sunrises, and beach access just 20 yards from our steps! Our unit is filled with sunshine and ocean views out every window! This preferred condominium will sleep up to 4 people and is perfect for a romantic get-away or a small family. The gorgeous wide beach is just steps from our beach closet, and has a life guard station directly in front of us, along with great shelling and surf lessons right in front too!

The bedroom has 2 windows, one with a great ocean view, one facing sound side and queen bed. Multiple windows in the living area make it feel as if you are right on the beach! You can watch fireworks from the deck, and the living room and deck offer a breathtaking, unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean and miles of beach. The sunrises are AWESOME!

Carolina Beach is the idyllic sleepy, friendly and safe little beach town, yet it boasts tons of activities to fill your vacation! Whether on a romantic getaway, or with the kids, the newly renovated boardwalk area, (which is a half block from our condo) has something for everyone--swings to watch dolphins swim by, live bands, carnival rides, Britt's Donuts, and lots more! In the summer months, activities are scheduled every night, such as bingo, bands and fireworks on the beach. Family movies are shown on the lake--also within walking distance--on Sunday evenings, and are great family fun, as is putt putt and a walk on the Kure Beach Pier, just down the road. This sleepy little town makes for a sweet getaway for couples as well with romantic nights on the deck, great sushi and craft beers, and fun trips into Wilmington for tapas and touring.

The ocean view bedroom has a queen bed with down pillows. Crisp white sheets and fresh towels and bathmats are provided with the cleaning fee. There is a sleeper sofa with an air/coil mattress that can be adjusted to comfort in the living room and a twin aerobed is available as well. We keep our place immaculate, just as we would want, and as you should expect.

There are just nine units in our building, which is the closest to beach on the island. Our 3rd floor condo (walk up) has panoramic views which are spectacular. There are no buildings or streets directly behind us so our building is very quiet. Great shelling and surf lessons right in front too!

Please see the pictures to see just how close we are to the newly renovated boardwalk area! Our condo has recently been redecorated, including fresh paint, flooring, and a new bathroom and appliances. The building has recently been painted.

We have 2 cable TVs, full wireless internet, and a DVD player. Our deck has 2 pub-height chairs with matching table where you can enjoy cocktails and view the fireworks! We have a mini washer and dryer for light loads and new stainless appliances. We have a storage closet at beach level, where you will find beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, a beach cart, buckets and shovels etc. for your use. There is a ground level shower just below the building. Just bring your beach towels and swimsuits, we have everything else you might need. We have two large designated parking spots with our unit.

There is so much to do at Carolina Beach! The North Carolina Aquarium is at the south end of the island next to historic Fort Fisher. Daily programs include divers who swim with sharks and a touching pond for the kids. Just north of our condo is the marina with daily departures on fishing charters, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, and boat rentals. A fifteen minute drive takes you to the city of Wilmington. The historic riverfront downtown has brick streets, waterfront restaurants, loads of antique shops, horse-drawn carriage rides, the battleship NC, and fantastic restaurants. Day trips on the ferry to Southport are so delightful, as is a walk on the pier at Kure Beach! Tony Silvagni teaches all ages to surf right in front of our place, and also rents stand up paddle boards. The Carolina Beach State Park hosts stand up paddling and nature walks.

You could literally park your car and never leave, as so much, including downtown Carolina Beach, is within walking distance of our place!

We hope you come visit us! We do all we can to make your vacation wonderful. Please call or contact with any questions. (There is no pool at our building)

(Please note, there is absolutely NO SMOKING/NO VAPING in our building, on the decks, stairways or on the property in general per our HOA. This is closely monitored by the year round residents, same with pets.)

About Lauren Rockwell

This condo has been 5 star rated with another owner for many years, and now has a new owner and management, and is freshly painted and ready to go!

Lauren Rockwell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Lauren Rockwell chose Carolina Beach

I rented this property for my kids and I for almost ten years, and loved it so much, I decided to buy it! It is just that delightful. I always say, it's like being in a aquarium- with the ocean out every window. Even the deck, with two openings and cover, allows a cool breeze all day long. It's peaceful, clean, quiet and safe.

What makes this condo unique

The feeling of looking out every window and seeing water and sunshine will astound you. The spacious deck allows for mornings with coffee watching dolphins and evenings watching the fireworks on the beach right in front of us, all with the safety and fun of the little town.

Relaxing and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonder vacation. The condo was very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The views were amazing. Shops, restaurants, and the boardwalk were all within walking distance of the condo. We saw lots of dolphins and the beach was beautiful and clean. The locals were friendly and helpful. The stairs make for a good workout but we just rewarded ourself with a donut. We have already booked for a week in the summer. Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us.

We did to want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This beach front condo exceeded all our expectations. We spend more time on the deck than we did in our previous 30 trips to Carolina Beach. It is so peaceful sitting on the patio in privacy but still having an amazing view. It truly is the closest unit to the water and being the end unit the views are 180 degrees. We will be back soon!

Thanks Lauren. We appreciate all your attention to the details.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Carolina Beach. We normally stay on the north end, but we were excited to stay on the south end this year. Lauren's condo is great and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and it was the perfect size. We have 2 small children (2 yr old and 3 months) and it was really great to be so close the beach and be able to get back to the condo quickly as needed. Also, we really loved being a 1 minute walk from the boardwalk! The fireworks on Thursday were amazing from the deck. It was the first time our 2 year old saw fireworks and it was great to not have to go anywhere so she could go right to bed afterwards. You can't see the high fireworks from the patio, but we saw most of the show. When we come back, we may go down to the beach since it is such a short walk. The only intense part is the steps (42 to be exact), but very doable. My Dad & Mom came to eat lunch with us one day and my Dad said they are old people steps. Both have issues going up and down stairs, but were able to do so for the day with no issue. Lauren was great and very responsive. We had some issues getting into the outdoor "shower" (really a hose), but she got us the info we needed very quickly. Thanks for sharing your amazing place for our vacation!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! I am so glad you had a great time on your visit. Yes, we just had a new lock installed for the shower and it is a little tricky until you get the hang of it. We love watching fireworks from our deck too! Hope you come back again and again! Lauren

Perfect location. Perfect view. Perfect condo.

  • 5 of 5

Everything really was perfect. We had a great week at Carolina Beach. The unit is clean, well maintained, and well stocked. The sheets are great, and that's coming from a thread count snob. The views from the balcony added so much to our vacation experience: sunrise, dolphins, surf school, fireworks, and everything else happening on the beach. We brought our own beach stuff, but the storage closet appears to contain everything you would need.

Our vehicle remained parked the entire week. Everything you need truly is within walking distance. We strolled the boardwalk daily--some days several times. It's only a few blocks to the Sea Merchants grocery store, which has the necessities.

Sea Witch became our favorite restaurant, but we tried a few others and never had a bad meal.

Even though we spent a lot of time on the beach, we also entertained ourselves with a few activities:

-walk to Kure Beach--about 7 miles round trip

-bike ride to the Fort Fisher ferry, which transported us and our bikes to Southport and back

-bike ride to the state park

-8 hour offshore fishing charter.

The condo is in the best location to do as much or as little as you want. The stairs make for a great warm up. We are looking forward to a return visit. Thank you!
