About Glenn and Melinda Miller

Glenn and Melinda live in Chesterfield, Virginia. Avid beach lovers, this purchase has been a life-long dream. With three children in their twenties and their first grandchild on the way, they wanted a place for their growing family to come back together and enjoy each other. They plan to also open it up for other family-oriented renters who value spending time with family and friends.

Glenn and Melinda Miller purchased this house in 2017

Why Glenn and Melinda Miller chose Carolina Beach

Carolina Beach is a great family friendly beach suitable for small children with its extended shallow wave break zone. It is also attractive to surfers due to moderate swells that occur a bit further out. With close proximity to Wilmington, upscale shopping, dining, and historic tours are only 20 minutes away. Locally, Carolina Beach offers Freeman Park where you can drive your 4-wheel drive vehicle onto the beach. Masonboro Island is close by for shell seekers. Fort Fisher is only 10 minutes away - where you can go to the NC Aquarium and the historic battlegrounds. The North Pier is walking distance and a bike lane is available on street side. The Boardwalk and Britt's donuts are located approximately 1 mile from this home. Carolina Beach has unique shops, great restaurants, and local scuba diving, jet ski rentals, surfing lessons and fishing tours.

What makes this house unique

Water views are available from almost every window since the front of the home is oceanfront and the back has waterway views which are great for boat watching. 'Our Place in the Sun' is located close to the inlet making dolphin pods swimming close to shore a frequent occurrence. Close proximity to the North Pier and Freeman Park make it an ideal location for those who like to fish, crab, or rake for clams. A private walkway to the beach with an outside hot/cold shower make going back and forth to the beach a 'breeze'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time staying in your carolina beach home Aug 9-16th!! It was perfect for all of us and loved having the pool! The set up and decor of the home feels like home away from home. It was so nice having all the extras and amenities yall have in the home as well with the extra beach chairs, floats, tables...etc. My 9 month old would fall asleep on the swing every time... lol :) My family and I just wanted to say thank you! Hopefully we can book it again for next year.

Home (at the Beach) Away from Home :o)

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this property and the wonderful time we had. This rental is beautiful and our expectations were exceeded. It's apparent that the owners are invested in you having a perfect vacation. There are more amenities than you can possibly imagine. They have truly thought of everything from the beach equipment/toys, to the kids toys/books, movies, games, to the cupboards being stocked in the kitchen with everything you could ever need. The view of the beach from the ocean front decks is beautiful and the pool and elevator are great touches! On top of that, the owners are easy to communicate and deal with. I have been going to Carolina Beach since the late 1980s and this is one of, if not the best place I've stayed. My family and I had a great time and hope to be back soon!

Great place; a couple of hints

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place in a great location. The house is well-maintained, nicely decorated, fully functional, and stocked with lots of extras. The views from the top two floors are wonderful and hanging out on one of the porches with a beer is very relaxing. A couple of things to be aware of. There is an elevator, but the instructions put the fear of God into you that if you miss one step in a long list of steps, the elevator will breakdown and need repair, or some sequence of additional steps to get it going again. I didn't want to be an engineer on vacation like in real life, so we decided not to touch it, especially with small kids around. But there are lots of stairs - two flights from the car to the kitchen. So, with grandkids in tow, our knees were aching by the end of the week. Second, the pool is great, but shared with the neighbors. Our neighbors used their half as a base of operations for a fairly large family reunion. So there were a lot of people using the pool who weren't staying here. They were a very nice family and good about sharing, but it was still a bit intimidating. Luck of the draw, I guess, and it certainly could have been worse...

Great owners and great house!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well maintained. Also the only house we have ever stayed at that was stocked with towels, pool toys, a good grill, toilet paper, paper towels, spices, condiments, beach chairs, etc. Often times houses are advertised to have supplies like this, but my experience is most times the actual stuff onsite falls far short. That was not the case here. Owners also sent a care package while we were there with laundry and dish pods and several other items for our stay. I would highly recommend this house and these owners!!!!
