Updated 6 br 4 ba beach house in the heart of Carolina Beach. Right across the street from the beach access and has great views from the decks. Decorated more modern than beachy, we've tried to think of everything you'll need for a great beach stay
Built in 2005 and repainted inside in 2015, this gorgeous home is located right across the street from the beach, has sweeping ocean views, and a beach access just steps away. There are 6 bedrooms and 4 baths. New carpet was installed and the hardwoods refinished to start the summer 2015 rental season.
The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and is ready to accommodate large families or groups. There is a bar height counter that seats 4, and the counter-height dining table seats 8. It's also a great place to gather to play board games. The home has hardwood floors in all the common areas.
The living area has a 55-inch wifi-enabled flat screen TV, the master a 40-inch TV, and all the other bedrooms have TVs as well. Cable TV and high speed wireless internet service (dual-band 802-11n router) are also provided for your enjoyment.
The entry first floor has two bedrooms - one in the middle of the home with a full over full bunk bed, and the other with a queen bed. There's a jack and jill (shared) bathroom on the entry floor with dual vanities and a toilet/shower area that has a door to close it off from the vanity area.
The main second floor has the great room with living room, dining, and the gourmet kitchen. This level also has a bedroom with a queen bed. There is also a full bath on this level with separate doors the the bedroom and common area.
The third floor has the master and two guest rooms that share a full bath - one bedroom has a queen bed and the other one another full over full bunk bed.
The master bedroom has a king bed, a private deck, and a fabulous master bathroom with dual vanities, a glass enclosed shower, and a whirlpool tub. You can sit in the bed in the master and look out at great ocean views!
For ocean viewing, there are two nicely furnished covered decks. One is on the main 2nd floor and the other is just off the master bedroom. Both are great for watching the ocean, watching people, reading, enjoying time with family and friends.
To make your stay more enjoyable, the house is secured with a keypad lock. No worrying about who has the key! There's also a beach cart provided to make for an even easier walk over to the beach and back. And of course there's an outdoor shower for when you get home.
Carolina Beach is an incredible vacation spot, with something for everyone in the family. There's a boardwalk with a permanent amusement park for the kids during the summer. The town hosts many movie nights at the lake, and they also have paddle boats there available for rent. The north end of the island allows 4 wheel drive vehicles, and there's a pier there as well. Kure beach also has a pier, which is about a mile away and makes for a nice stroll down the beach.
At the far south end of the island is the Fort Fisher state park with large uncrowded beaches, the aquarium, and the ferry to Southport.
This beautiful home is centrally located. The Tiki bar and Granny's Country Kitchen are short walks. The town area of Carolina Beach is just over a mile to the north, and Kure Beach is about a mile to the south.
This house is 1/2 of a duplex.
When you rent, you're renting the whole house.
