About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

**Oceanfront, Oceanfront, Oceanfront**

If you are looking to relax, you've landed in the right place. You'll love relaxing in this two bedroom two bath condo. After a friend of mine got married at Kure Beach I started visiting Carolina Beach and renting other folks condos. I fell in love with the beach and I've taken all my likes from the other condos and put them into this space. From the granite countertops to replacing the bathroom vanitys and installing all new appliances, you'll love the enjoyment you and your family or friends will be able to enjoy.

The condo has a HUGE balcony facing the ocean with an unobstructed view of the beautiful water. It even slopes downward to ensure no water runs back in the condo. When the waves are right, you'll be able to see surfers and dolphins in the water. During the late summer season the waves were huge and I saw 20-25 surfers a day - makes for a great beach feel. You also have a private walk out to a beautiful sandy beach. In the storage unit below there are beach chairs and toys for your enjoyment. You can also lock your own personal items in the storage unit too. No lifting everything for the beach up and down the stairs everyday. After you come off of the beach you can shower off in the outdoor shower. There is even a foot shower to make sure you get in all the nooks and crannies!

Inside you will find the condo fully stocked. There are board games and a DVD library, to flat screen tvs in every room, you'll love what this condo has in store for your vacation!

The master bedroom has a comfy queen size bed with ceiling fan and attached private bath and private balcony with peek-a-boo views of the canal. The guest bedroom has a full size bunk bed, which has a twin on top, full size in the middle and a twin trundle underneath...and there is an available twin size fold out bed too!

The kitchen is magnificent with granite countertops and everything you need to cook a home cooked meal. Stainless Steel appliances with flat top range will make you think you are staying in a five star resort. The dining room sits four, but you can pull up the three barstools to add more people. The living room is perfect to watch a movie after the sun goes down. It features a sectional sofa with a chaise lounge, Board Games, DVD library, comfy chair with ottoman and a view to die for!

A ten minute walk will get you to the famous Carolina Beach Boardwalk. Filled with great restaurants, nightlife, beachy stores and the world famous Britt's Doughnuts (a must have, but cash only please) you are in the best part of Carolina Beach. A block behind the condo is the canal. It's an amazing place to walk around with your family, friends and pets. There are also public areas to sit and watch the boats (both big and small) go by. We did this for the Fourth of July Fireworks and it was AMAZING!

On the far North End is the North End Pier which you can see from the condo. There is amazing fishing and the location of the start of Freedom Park, one of the only areas in North Carolina where you can drive on the beach. It's an awesome place to drive out and watch the sunset on the far end of the beach or you can walk down North Carolina Beach Avenue with your dog and go out on the beach and play all day.

At the South End of Carolina Beach is Ft. Fisher, it's an amazing piece of history that is worth seeing during your visit. It is also home to an amazing acquarium.

Thank you for looking and choosing the Pirate Shack I'm so looking forward to a GREAT Summer Season! Arrggh...

About Cliff Webster, Jr.

I am so excited to share with you my experience of buying a home away from home. As a high end apartment manager located in Raleigh, NC, I've always had the pleasure of living on-site. With that thought process in mind, I turned my home purchase towards the beach so that my friends and I could have a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Here you'll find our adventures and we hope that you will add your own!

Why Cliff Webster, Jr. chose Carolina Beach

A few summers ago, my college roommate got married to his sweetheart. While I was here, the memories of my childhood visits to Carolina Beach started to flow. I had some money saved up and decided that I should look at some real estate. It took me over a year to find the perfect place. I bought a condo and completely turned into my little piece of heaven. From new floors to new doors, I've personally put a lot of sweat equity into making this place mine! That a few good friends, paid with beer and seafood and the Pirate Shack is what you see today. I hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and family do! Growing up vacationing at Carolina Beach every year was always so much fun. I remember looking back we got to go for an ENTIRE week to Carolina Beach. We always stayed at The Parker motel on the North End, but had to stay on the second row without a pool so we could afford the entire week. Every summer we packed up my fathers full size 1970's truck, put the camper on top and headed to Carolina Beach. My dad had affixed a bed on the back and with the small shell camper, my sister and I were in for a ride of a lifetime. We always made signs to put int he back window to tell people where we were going. My favorite was always drawing a clown and making it colorful - oh how our childhood makes us. Never in a million years would I have thought I could afford something at the beach and especially not oceanfront. I'm humbled that I get to dream big and enjoy the memories from days gone by. I hope you and your family will enjoy the memories you make - they truly last a lifetime!

What makes this condo unique

I personally love being able to wake up, open the master bedroom door and see the ocean. There is nothing better than looking into eternity! No matter whether it's cold or hot, I love it here. There is a reason it's call Paradise Island and I fully understand it!

I also enjoy the local flare. From the great restaurants like The Deck House to Granny's Country Kitchen you just can't beat this laid back island.

In the winter, you should check out the Island of Lights. The locals really get into this and it's amazing to see the ocean in the winter with all the lights and Christmas Flare at the Boardwalk!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cliff -

I didn't get to make an entry in the guest book as we have three kids and getting packed and out the door is difficult. But I did want to let you know on the days the weather cooperated we had a great time with the proximity to the beach and all the toys in the storage unit - my eldest son learned how to boogie board, and the other two built sand castles. On the days where the weather didn't cooperate we enjoyed the use of the games - my husband taught my daughter to play backgammon, and my youngest and I became experts at the Memory Game - and DVDs and having there own bedroom with a DVD TV was the 'best thing ever'. And after the kids were in bed, we really enjoyed the deck.

Unfortunately fireworks were cancelled due to the wet weather that Thursday, but we made the best of it. The ladies at Squigley's became our best friends as we were there 4 nights of the week as we love ice cream in our house. We discovered a great seafood restaurant up towards Wilmington - Fish Bites. Its in a little strip mall and gets packed. We got the last free table and somebody was there to take it as soon as we were done. Great fresh seafood - I would say it is better than Michael's - yup I said it. Also, El Cazador - is good mexican and GIGANTIC margaritas - which is sometimes a necessity with three kids.

We love Carolina Beach. It was a little disappointing to have so many rainy days this trip, but your amenities made it easier. Enjoy the Pirate Shack - you really do have a great place.

Great property with convenient location and beautiful view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at the beach. The condo was decorated with a beachy pirate theme, which we loved. The condo was clean upon arrival and well stocked with everything that our family needed during our stay. The property owner was very pleasant to work with and promptly answered my questions via text. We would definitely stay at this condo again!

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! Fantastic views, recently upgraded, excellent location! If you can, make your next destination the Pirate Shack. He's done a great job with the recent renovation and it really makes you feel at home. Great place to relax and enjoy the ocean view from the large deck. Easy walk to the beach and to nearby restaurants and bars. Quick drive to the aquarium, Ft. Fisher, Wilmington, etc. Thanks again for the great week and we will be looking to stay here again!

Car: recommended

Walking distance to the beach, old timey boardwalk, North End Pier and several of the shops around the Island. You have to try out Britts Doughnuts (only available during the summer season). I also suggest the drive to the South End of the island to enjoy Historic Fort Fisher, they have some great places to take photos and there is a ferry that will take you over to Southport where boutique shopping abounds.
