About the property

Newly updated 3 Bedroom 2.5 Bath Condo with Unobstructed Ocean Views

Freshly renovated in spring 2015, our 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home features unobstructed ocean views and is only steps from the beach without the oceanfront price tag. Located at the northernmost end of Carolina Beach, vehicular traffic is virtually non-existent, ensuring a quiet and relaxing vacation and easy access to the beach. New features for 2017 include granite countertops, new dishwasher and microwave.

The large master bedroom features a king bed, flat screen tv, and a private en suite bath. The second bedroom has a full and twin bed, as well as another twin trundle bed, accommodating up to 4 guests. This bedroom shares a large jack-and-jill bath with the third queen bedroom. Both rooms feature flat screen televisions with dvd players and game console hookups--perfect for the children. A half-bath powder room is also conveniently located off the living room.

An open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen allow for continuous enjoyment of the ocean views. Off the living room is a large covered deck where you can enjoy a cold beverage and relax in the shade while still enjoying the ocean breezes and views.

The fully stocked kitchen and full size washer and dryer allow you to enjoy the comforts of home as well as save money by preparing your own meals.

About Brock Wiley

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, we moved to Raleigh, NC in 2008 to escape the snow and bitter winters. We assumed 2 hours from the ocean would be close enough for frequent beach trips, but it proved to be too long of a day trip with children in tow. We hope that you may enjoy our home as much as we do.

Why Brock Wiley chose Carolina Beach

Of the local beaches we've visited, Carolina Beach offers more variety in terms of entertainment, dining, family activities, and shopping than most other beaches. However, the northern end of the island provides a tranquil setting with easy access to all that Carolina Beach has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Our home provides all of the benefits of an oceanfront home, without the expensive price tag. You can enjoy ocean views and breezes and closeness to the beach without breaking the bank. In fact, our home is closer to the water than a lot of ocean front homes.

Surfwatch says it all!

  • 5 of 5

Sunshine! Surf! Sanctuary! SURFWATCHB was the perfect Thanksgiving getaway location with family! Well stocked and up to date. Definitely appreciated the silent dishwasher so we could watch football and the surfers!

The condo was nicely decorated and very clean. We enjoyed our visit there very much!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely no complaints on this lovely condo! From the moment we arrived (using the keyless entry) until we left, it was smooth sailing. The kitchen was the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a rental property. Our idea of a great place to stay is where we are comfortable and experience no issues. The Wiley condo dots all the I’s and crosses all the T’s to ensure your stay is pleasant and worry free. Our favorite thing to do was watch the sun come up while we enjoyed coffee on the deck. That was a real treat for our son that was visiting from Colorado. Walking along the beach, and then having beverages on the Carolina Beach Pier overlooking the ocean, was something we will never forget. All conveniently located to the Wiley Condo. Even though we are in our 70’s, it was a quick and easy walk to get to the ocean and pier. After a day spent at the beach it was nice to return to the condo for a hot shower and to sleep in a very comfortable bed. It was a perfect place for us to stay!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I love staying in Brock's condo. I have never met him but feel that he is my vacation buddie! His condo is always clean, comfortable, and a real bargain for the size and amenities. Brock is always available if needed and response time is minimal. My sisters and I have stayed here 4 times, I think, and plan to stay at this condo every time we come to Carolina Beach!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I loved my week at Surfwatch property. The condo was clean, well appointed and very spacious. Sitting on the deck for morning coffee or afternoon cocktail was just like being on the ocean side, even tho the condo is across the street. Seeing the waves, hearing the surf and feeling the ocean breeze was a great way to start and end a great day at Carolina Beach. Because of erosion in front of the condo, it is a short walk to the beach. But, not a big concern.

I recommend anyone staying at Surwatch, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you Brock for sharing your beautiful beach home.

Beautiful place with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect! I went in September with my mom, future sister in law, and her mom for a weekend to celebrate my brother's upcoming wedding. This place was perfect. The decor is so cute and beach themed, 3 bedrooms was perfect with room to spare, and everything was so neat and clean. Brock was so great to work with before, during, and after our stay. He is available to answer any questions and is willing to help you with whatever you need. There is a well stocked supply closet with beach chairs, umbrellas and toys which was very nice so we didn't have to bring our own. It was a wonderful experience and we hope to go back again! I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a perfect beach vacation.
