The unit comes equipped with a full size washer & dryer, and a spacious balcony with a view of the Carolina Beach lake. This ideal location makes it easy to walk anywhere in a few minutes. Shopping, dining, recreation rentals & especially... the beach.. are all within about a block or less!
Relax on your oversized balcony and take it all in. From lake views, to people-watching, to the gorgeous evening sky over the ocean. Smell the burgers grilling, hear the sounds of vacation fun all around you! Walk back inside and enjoy the same views from your great room with three large windows on 2 sides of your unit. You'll have the best seats in the house for Movies At The Lake (during season), and the Christmas tree lighting & the night-time Carolina Beach Christmas parade (not to mention a view of the fireworks from your front window and a peek at the beach ball drop on New Years Eve). No worries about finding a parking spot for any of these events because you're already there! And it's a walk in the park (literally) as you stroll through the Saturday farmers/flea market and many other lakeside events and celebrations (Apr.-Oct).
And did we forget to mention that vast blue body of salt water that is only about 250 steps away?
Carolina Beach boasts a newly renovated and colorful small-town style boardwalk and walking strip with various unique stores, eateries &, bars; as well as a nearby party boat, boat launch, beach rentals, regatta and amusement park (during season). Walk or bike around Carolina Beach lake, or rent paddle boats! Down the road a bit is Kure Beach (and KB pier), the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher (and FF history museum), and the ferry boat to the lovely and quaint town of Southport (where scenes from films such as Safe Haven, A Walk to Remember, I Know What you Did Last Summer and Dawson's Creek were shot).
Skip the pitstop to the big chain coffee shops as you pass through Wilmington on your way to the beach because CB offers you 5 locally owned coffee shops to choose from. Want a "Friends" style coffee shop experience? Walk to Majik Beanz. Want to try some creatively crazy good donuts with your "Carolina Sand" latte? Visit Wake-n-Bake (next to the Food Lion). Want to check out a hidden gem with locally roasted coffee beans and the best bacon-egg-cheese on brioche? Then hit up the North End Café. There are also 2 coffee shops on the boardwalk!
And you'll have too many restaurants of many cuisines to choose from! Besides lots of great seafood choices, you'll also have plenty of Irish Pubs, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, burger joints, diners & local breweries to keep you wondering where to eat.
Also on the island, you will find some of your well known chain stores and fast food joints (such as CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General (the largest DG this side of I-95 in our opinion), Subway, Jimmy Johns, McDonalds, Hardees, 2 grocery stores (Food Lion and a brand new Publix) just to name a few. If you're in need of health and wellness services, there is an urgent care facility, and a few massage & hair/nail salons on the island. Although we LOVE Wilmington, there really is no need to go back OTB (over the bridge) once you've arrived in Carolina Beach!
Some "must-try," "must-do" or "must see before you leave" places to check out before you head back OTB are Britt's Famous Donuts on the boardwalk (established 1939), the Fat Pelican (voted #1 Dive bar in NC and #25 in the nation), Fort Fisher, the NC Aquarium, and definitely the ferry boat to Southport! But of course... since your condo is next door to the Hang Ten Grill; a great breakfast (weekends only), lunch, dinner and drinks is always only a few steps away!
