About the property

Oceanfront condo w/ great view, uncrowded beach & 10 mins to Boardwalk/Downtown

Welcome to Chasin' Waves at Carolina Beach! Chasin' Waves is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, oceanfront condo! Wake up, take a deep breath of ocean air, feel the warm sun on your face, exhale. Relax - you are at the beach! Where else can you take in a breathtaking sunrise and a great cup of coffee on your private balcony, then stroll down the beach to the boardwalk and grab some Britts donuts for breakfast?! That's just the start of many incredible memories you'll make visiting Carolina Beach. We love this island and we are happy to share both the island and our home with you!

New in 2017! New hardwood-inspired floors! New paint throughout! New sliding door to the oceanfront deck! New rugs and chairs in the living area!

New in 2016: beautiful new counter-tops, a new kitchen sink, updated lighting, new linens and towels, as well as new appliances.

We include all linens, sheets and towels with your rental! We believe a great vacation starts with a good night's sleep which is why both bedrooms are equipped with queen ultra-plush mattresses and room darkening curtains. The master bedroom is equipped with a ceiling fan, a 45" HDTV, an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity, a closet with hangers, as well as a small private deck. We keep a small black fan in the closet of the master bedroom for additional air flow or to use as a sound machine to help you sleep!

The guest bedroom also has a closet and direct access to a bathroom with a stand up shower and extended vanity. There are additional blankets in the closets and extra towels under the bathroom sinks.

Our dining room table is equipped with a butterfly leaf, so please feel free to make it larger or smaller to accommodate your group.

The living room is equipped with a 45" HDTV, a ceiling fan, and a sleeper sofa with a queen size mattress. And last, but certainly not least, the oceanfront porch is large enough to comfortably accommodate seating for 5: 1 bench, 2 chairs, 1 rocking chair, and a coffee table!

Plentiful parking! 1 reserved space directly under the building and 1 additional space in the lot directly across the street.

About Chris Williams

I am a happily married 30-something that is chasin' his dreams! I work hard and I play hard. Chasin' Waves is my perfect escape. Living in Durham, NC - it's just a little over 2 hours away.

Chris Williams purchased this condo in 2016

Why Chris Williams chose Carolina Beach

We chose Carolina Beach because it offered so many things to do, golf, fish, scuba, history, close proximity to Wilmington, and of course a beautiful and rejuvenating beach. We knew we didn't want to walk up more than 1 flight of stairs, so it had to be first floor. And we knew we wanted to be able to sit on our private balcony and enjoy a cup of coffee with a stunning sunrise. But we also knew that we would want things to do with the kids: Aquarium, Fort Fisher, Ferry to Southport, Boardwalk, Attractions ---- and we wanted to be close to a vibrant up-and-coming city full of culture, shopping, golf course - AKA Wilmington ---- and so this just checked all of our boxes.

Wonderful. Felt like home during our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Much better view than the pics and much bigger on the inside than expected. Everything we could have needed to make ourselves at home was either provided or was available within a short drive. Beach gear provided was great and having access to an outdoor shower to clean off the sand was fabulous.

Relaxing and wonderful!

Our family felt like we were home the entire time. Beautiful place, exceeded our expectations. The views from the deck are amazing. It was wonderful to enjoy coffee and listen to the ocean every morning. Many thanks again, Chris and Matt!

Fantastic location and awesome views

  • 5 of 5

This condo offered a home away from home. Plenty of pots and pans for cooking. More than enough plates and cups for our party of 5. Enough bath towels and washcloths. Ample size bedrooms and baths. We used the sleeper sofa and it was very comfortable. The location of this condo is great. Close enough to walk to the boardwalk but far enough that it was very quite. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you felt at home in our condo. With a view like that, we hardly ever go out to eat, opting to enjoy dinner right on our porch. I am glad to hear that the kitchen supplies worked out well for you to enjoy meals with a view too. Thank you so much for taking time to share your experience with future guests.

Our stay was great. All amenities were close by and the beach was just outside.

Right in front of our condo!

Carolina Beach is located on Pleasure Island, and it's easy to see how the island got this name! No matter what your speed, you'll find everything you need right here on the island.

The Boardwalk is a classic and it's just a short walk down the beach and it's the perfect place to explore. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and watering holes - you'll find something for everyone. If you don't stop anywhere else, make sure you stop into Britt's donuts and try some for yourself - there's only 1 flavor to choose from and there's something extra great about a warm, sweet, fresh donut at the beach! You'll soon see why they are famous!

Another favorite attraction is the Carolina Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park, offering rides ranging from kid friendly to not for the faint of heart.

Enjoy Fireworks? You're in luck! Catch them on the beach every Thursday from Memorial Day to Labor Day. They are shot from the Boardwalk, but you'll have the perfect viewing location from the beach right in front of the condo.

Freeman Park is less than 1/2 mile from our condo and is the perfect place to swim, camp, fish, or go boating, crabbing or casting for minnows. Visitors are drawn to the beautiful beach with its variety of wildlife, dunes and majestic sea grasses indigenous to the region.

Take in a history lesson while you're here and visit Fort Fisher - A Civil War National Historic Landmark. Learn how the fall of Fort Fisher helped to seal the fate of the Confederacy.

The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher is located on the island and it's the perfect place to take the family. Learn all about our ecosystems and the animals that live in them.

The Tiki Bar and Ocean Grill. Are you looking for an afternoon getaway, but don't want to leave the beach? Drive on down to the Tiki Bar and enjoy lunch on the pier and a good beverage too! Kids are welcome and the view is spectacular. Enjoy Live Music on most Thursday's in June/July/August from 7pm to 9pm.

The Fat Pelican - Voted #1 Dive Bar in NC - and Top 25 Dive Bars in the US. I could go on and on, but you should experience this place for yourself.
