Things you should know

  • 1 of 5

The house is beautiful. We had 6 adults and 2 teenagers in the property. There are a lot of stairs so be ready. The house is well furnished and has everything you need. On the downside. There is only 2 parking places for the building and you have to pay 8.00 a day for for each additional car. We had a problem with a out side rug fraying when we ran a sweeper on it, so it looks like we have lost our deposit on the house. I would advise you to photo the place when you leave. I have booked a lot of vacations and never had a problem with the cleaning of the place till this time. I was told the place was left dirty, not sure what they are talking about since it has been over 2 weeks and I cant get an answer on it. So make sure you photo when you leave since it is hard to fight now especially since I am 10 hours away.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you thought the home was beautiful! We take pride in offering our guests clean and aesthetically pleasing vacation homes! One of the most impressive features that "Family Tides" offers is the private 3rd level master suite with the dual balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean! Most guests feel the stairs are worth the serenity that awaits at the top! Parking in our quaint beach town is limited and most attractions are only a short stroll away; but we are grateful you were able to park a 3rd vehicle in a public lot in a nearby location. Deposits are collected from all of our guests to cover any items that may be damaged; like the exterior rug. Accidents happen, and we were happy to have refunded the majority of your deposit after a replacement rug was purchased. While we are disappointed to receive a 1 star review, your commentary speaks highly of our home and we are happy that you enjoyed your vacation.

Great beach house! One minute from the beautifu beach!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience! The house was very clean, with well-furnished, ready-to-use kitchen. I stayed the room with two twin beds. It could connect two beds to one king size bed for two people. It was comfortable to sleep. Shower has warm water all the time. The balcony was nice. We could see the fire work from roof top balcony!

To the beach, it just takes one minute, which is really great. We could come and back very easily, and we don’t have to use car with wet swim suits.

I definitely stay here again!!

Downtown Carolina Beach. 30 seconds to the beach. 30 seconds to coffee. Condo was immaculate, well appointed and the perfect size. Definitely staying here again next summer. Thanks Cindi(who was great)!

Nice beach house. Nice location. Upon arrival the third floor did not have power. I called the property manager. I was instructed to flip the breaker. Told by the property mgr that I drove through the storm and I should know that maybe there would be an issue. Well as the vacation leasee I thought maybe someone would come to do that for us. Was told no one is coming for that. I may have expected too much. I've been a real estate broker in NC for over 16 years. New to me that a maintenance person would not come to check a breaker box of a vacation home that I have no ownership of. Interesting.

As an individual who travels and vacations extensively, I can personally attest to the superb quality of this beach house! First, the house was immaculately clean; more than adequately furnished. The internet was extremely fast and the smart TV was equipped with various apps (netflix, hulu, and etc.). The balcony views of the ocean on both floors were stunningly beautiful at sunrise. Also, the location is centralized in an ideal area of the beach; in close proximity to a number of resturants and shopping destinations. There is simply too many positives to list! I will certainly be returning!!

Everything about this property was just as described, Location to the beach, restaurants, shopping, boardwalk all walking distance! Loved Gibbys, The Tiki Hut, some of the little bars and coffee places all walking distance except for the Tiki Hut but worth the 2 mile drive! The mud room on first floor to keep your beach stuff in was great kept the sand inside to a minimum. Lots of stairs so if you have older people and or small kids this property would be a challenge! The only "issue" we had and wasn't even a problem was the grill it is an electric grill and we did not have good luck w/ it....tried inside and outside plugs had to rearrange a few meals that we had planned! Maybe access to a gas grill down on ground level might be an idea??? Internet not the fastest. Wasn't crazy about bringing my own linens but made leaving a little easier to just throw our dirty stuff in a bag and take it with! Cindi was so accommodating met us at the door since we were coming in after hours! Definitely worth every penny would DEFINATELY stay here again and or recommend to anyone visiting Carolina Beach!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! The law regarding open flames in multi- family dwellings, restricts us from offering anything but electric grills and we are sorry if that limited your cooking! We love that you enjoyed your vacation at Family Tides and look forward to a return visit!

Family tides is located on one of the southernmost NC beaches; Pleasure Island. This seaside town offers the quiet sanctity of a less commercial destination. Fear not, when you want entertainment or a good meal, Pleasure Island will not disappoint. Enjoy a steak or seafood at Havana's or the Deck House, sushi at Nicki's or breakfast at Kate's Pancake House or Hang Ten. All are in walking distance! Feel free to grab an iced coffee, ice cream cone, slice of pizza or a cold beer at any of nearby local spots. Mermaid Castle is a must to visit for adults and children alike! Enjoy boating, fishing by boat or on the pier, scuba, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and surfing! Olympic surfer, Tony Silvagni, host surf classes at your beach!!!! His shop is just a block away and he rents equipment! Drive south to enjoy the Ft. Fisher Aquarium and Civil War Museum. The ocean views coupled with scenic Cape Fear River views are breathtaking! Take a ferry ride to Southport while you are here! A quaint riverside village offers unique shopping and waterfront seafood restaurants! Downtown Wilmington is a darling port city that is filled with waterside dining and shopping! Spas, museums and charming southern architecture will amaze you!
