About Scott Shackleton
I'm a travel addict and I know how important clean and convenient accomodations are to enjoying a vacation. I'm also love my pet, so I understand wanting to bring pets on vacation. As long as Fido is well behaved and doesn't bark excessively, he or she is welcome.
Why Scott Shackleton chose Carolina Beach
This condo is one of 2 I own at Carolina Beach. Pleasure Island is small enough to provide a relaxed beach atmosphere without over-commercialization. At the same time there is a high enough population in the summer to attract top rate restaurants and entertainment. It is close to Wilmington NC and all that is offererd there. I love spending time in Carolina Beach when my condo's are not rented. I like to hang out on the beach with friends, walk for miles, visit the Aquarium at Fort Fisher, ride my bike and relax with good books. Anytime of year is a great time to visit Carolina Beach. Spring and Fall are actually my favorite times.

Wonderful location but wrong time
We enjoyed our stay and you can not beat the location to restaurants and the board walk but there is construction being done on the building right next door from 8 am until 5 pm each week day. They had a big shoot running from the roof to a dumpster literally feet away from the balcony. Each time a load would come down it was noisy and the dust would fly. At night the dust and debris would fly over because of the wind so it made sitting out on the balcony not so pleasurable. With that said I have to say the owner is on top of things and wants your stay to be good. We had a problem with the aircon and called him - he has someone there in record time to repair it. He also provided ear plugs for the noise. We would definitely book this location again but after the construction is completed on the building next door.
Great Beach Stay In October
Great Place! ! !
Property was great, wish I could’ve stayed longer.
It was cut short due to hurricane
We had a wonderful time staying at this location. Very relaxing. Small complex with only 6 units. All other owners and renters were super friendly. Our dogs loved the beach access (it’s all we could do to keep them away until doggy time on the beach). The location is right near the boardwalk but far enough away to not be bothered by the bustle. The unit was perfect for my husband and I as well as our 4 legged kids.
Property and location were everything promised
Property was exactly as presented. We have stayed at several properties in previous years and found this to be one of the best. Positives included the excellent bed, quiet location, good parking, pet friendly and exceptionally good response from property owner. We enjoyed the extras: barbecue, beach chairs, crab net and umbrellas. Furnishings were simple but comfortable. Although we have knee problems, we did not find that the access to the beach was overly difficult. Negatives: we couldn't stay longer! Hope to come back next time with our dog!
