Carolina beach is a great family destination. Location is terrific. However parking ia deceiving. Check out is 10am but previous rentors are at the beach and currently still using parking spots. Do NOT arrive before 6pm as there are no spots available. 3 out of 6 outlets do not work in in small bedroom. Candy wrappers behind dresser. Dresser drawers fall out. Stained comforter in bedroom. Mold on shower liner in master bath. Seating in living area is only for 4 people -should not be advertised for 6 people. The sofa is very comfortable BUT the mattress for sofa bed is so thin no one was able to sleep on it. It would also be nice to have a few extra hooks on back of bathroom doors to hang extra towels. It is also time to invest in a new steel security door. We will definitely return to Carolina beach but not to this condo!

The property was nice but could use some updating and cosmetic maintenance. Halfway through our stay, the AC quit working but the property manager was FANTASTIC and had a brand new unit installed quickly. The view, the large balcony, and the ocean breeze are wonderful.

Beautiful setting overlooking Carolina Beach. Perfect place to count your blessings over Easter break. Awesome large deck for your furry friends to dry off after a romp in the ocean!

The view was just amazing and it was very convenient. The condo was very close to the boardwalk and close to very good restaurants such as Britt's donuts and P.T's Grille. However, the house was very old and needs some updating in the silverware, plates, cooking ware and there should be more effort in the cleaning done. Even though the condo was a little old we had a wonderful vacation with a breathtaking view of the ocean.
