About Todd Bigham

My wife and I live in Cary, North Carolina and love to vacation at the coast. We purchased our first beach condo in 2007 in North Myrtle Beach, SC. While we like that area, we have found Carolina Beach to be more laid-back and enjoyable, plus it's an easy drive from Cary. We spend as much time as possible here in the spring and fall, and are happy to share our little piece of paradise with you in the summer.

Todd Bigham purchased this condo in 2012

Why Todd Bigham chose Carolina Beach

Our favorite part of Blue Latitude is the deck! It's a huge 16 x 9 ft space with Trex decking so you can go barefoot without getting splinters. The view is spectacular and the sturdy recycled plastic furniture is comfortable and colorful. When we happen to be up at dawn (which is not often!), the sunrises are beautiful -- bring your camera! We also love the proximity to everything on the island. Kure Beach, Fort Fisher and the ferry are a short drive to the south, and Freeman Park (the drive-on beach) is a short drive north. You can easily walk to the lake, boardwalk and multiple restaurants and bars (and Uber is available on the island as well!). The well-known Tiki Bar is literally steps down the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Blue Latitude is located in the Sea Colony community, a well-maintained property that includes a large oceanfront pool and spacious grassy lawns with charcoal grills. The private beach access makes it that much easier to get your toes in the sand.

Nice condo! Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Blue Latitude was wonderful in spite of a little rough weather from hurricane Irma our first couple of days! The unit was very clean and stocked well with kitchen equipment. The best part of the place was the deck - we spent lots of time out there when we weren't on the beach! Views were beautiful. We have family in the Wilmington area that came to visit and they enjoyed the deck views as well. TVs in both the living room and bedroom were appreciated as well. We were sad to pack up today and would definitley return again!

Awesome View & Well-Maintained Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Blue Latitude - I only wish it was longer! Lots of great touches by the owner, and a clean and nicely decorated and well-maintained condo. It was a quick walk to the beach and pool, and the whole complex was quiet yet conveniently located near restaurants, the aquarium and other attractions. My only minor criticism is that the air coming out of the vents was very loud when the air conditioning came on, to the point where we had to turn up the volume to hear the tv, and it also startled me awake a few times when it came on at night. It might be just in need of an end of summer tune up? This would definitely not deter us from staying again, however.

Excellent property, prompt communication with the owner, and accommodations that were as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Latitude! The condo was exactly as advertised and ready for us. We especially enjoyed the covered balcony where we are most of our meals while gazing at the ocean. Fantastic getaway that we won't soon forget!

Wonderful place with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I had a wonderful trip to Carolina Beach. Blue Latitude was the perfect place for our visit! The condo is beautiful and was the perfect size for our small family. Todd has put work into updating it (like the kitchen) and it shows. It was clean and had a great feel.

And the view from the deck is amazing! With a 5 month old, getting down to the beach as often as we'd like was not going to happen. But we could sit out on the deck (in the new captain's chairs) , watch the ocean, and hear the waves crash. It was delightful. It allowed us to enjoy the beach even while we were stuck inside during naps and such.

The pool was nice. Never crowded. In the afternoon it's in the shade, so no worries about getting sunburnt!

Todd was quick to respond to emails if we had a question. It was nice to work with him in arranging our trip.

My husband and I would both recommend Blue Latitude! In fact, we look forward to coming back for another stay in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Rebecca! Sitting on the deck and watching the ocean is our favorite pastime when we are in residence. It's great to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay! We hope you can make it back again next season. We have a few more upgrades planned for 2018.

Stunning view - adorable condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed staying at Blue Latitude! The view can't be beat from the kitchen/living room area and balcony! It is very comfortable and smartly decorated. The tall adirondack chairs on the balcony ensure there are no visual blocks while ocean gazing. The owners go all out to make guests comfortable. We would definitely return!
