The suite is directly on the North End of Carolina Beach and is a long walk or brief drive from downtown Carolina Beach and everything that is has to offer. The location is a long walk or brief drive from the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, eateries, and local stores (don't forget Britt's Famous Donuts)! If you like adventures, the marina is also there where you can take an offshore fishing trip or event boat out for a sunset sail. Camping more your thing? You can also head down to Kure Beach and fish directly off their fishing pier! Come with the 4X4 and drive (and camp) on the beach at Freeman Park, located on the North End of the island. The Carolina Beach Lake is close by, hosting the Farmer’s Market every Saturday, FIREWORKS every Thursday, and summer outdoor movies on Sunday (on a generous inflatable screen in the middle of the lake!). We welcome you to sit back, relax and savor yourselves because that's exactly what the beach is for!
These suites are a mixture of the original “period” construction and old world glamour, with a kiss of shabby-chic modernity and todays technology because hey, there’s got to be something for everybody! Each suite has its own distinct traits, quirks, and characteristics.
The entry to this 1 bedroom, 1 bath suite opens up into a enormous, freshly decorated family room combined with an open dining area and thoroughly supplied kitchen (stove+oven, refrigerator).

Most bedroom beds (including bunk beds) Including the ONE QUEEN bed consist of either a plush delight bed or a new encased 8” memory foam/cooling gel composition bed because we want all of our visitors to be appealing when it comes time to recharge. The pullout couches that can fit/support a memory foam pad are also accommodated with such! (Always bear in mind, although calming, a pullout couch/futon for a longer-term tenant may/may not give ideal support!) Remember, linens are NOT included in order to keep our costs low. You can bring them from home with you, buy them (Wal-Mart in Wilmington for example), or rent them (LOWTIDE Linens & Units, or another such vendor).

-Carolina Beach Town Hall supplies, where available, beach wheel chairs that can traverse the sand without charge. Please reach out to the Recreation Center for additional information.
The building itself is one block from the nearest beach access. The unit is a brief drive from down town Carolina Beach with its stores, activities and dining and is equidistant to the smaller, but just as glamourous Down Town Kure Beach. There are fireworks during the summer every Thursday nighttime, Movies at the lake each Sunday nighttime, and local fairs around the lake each Saturday morning (refer to for additional info!). Carolina Beach is a mix of friendly locals, snowbirds, and visitors all looking to hideaway the inland and enjoy the sand, surf, and mood. We really have an spectacular community!
Carolina Beach and the surrounding neighborhood offers an array of sights and activities to enjoy while here. Some of these examples are (but not limited to) a subtle beach hike through Carolina Beach State Park, Finishing on the Kure Beach Pier, Kayaking to one of the many islands surrounding the Intracoastal Waterway, watching canons blast during a historical reenactment at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site, or petting some Sting Rays at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. This doesn’t even include the aweing scenery of Airlie Gardens, and our very own battleship (USS NC) in Wilmington! Perhaps more inviting and less “experience” is your speed. Our own local Brewery (Good Hops) along with a round of Frisbee golf may be a great time.
And between the beach and Down Town Wilmington, boy do we have FOOD, Festivals, and good times!
Food, dining, and a multitude of outdoor activities are all well within walking distance. Downtown Carolina Beach has a number of vendors (such as Pleasure Island Units @ 2 N Lake Park Blvd Carolina Beach NC 28428 and Tony Silvagni Surf School @ 101 Cape Fear Blvd Carolina Beach NC 28428) that offer golf carts, paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks, and bicycles for rent as an alternative to driving. Taxi’s and Uber’s are always available for an assist when needed as well throughout the island! You can catch a Ferry to Southport in Kure Beach @ 2422 Fort Fisher Blvd S Kure Beach which leads to another ferry to Bald Head Island where NO CARS are allowed!
Walk, crawl (hopefully mainly the children!), bicycle, swim, paddle, drive, Uber… you name it.
