About the Manager

My wife and I have decorated our beach home to provide a relaxing and comfortable get-away experience with a touch of elegance thrown in. We know you will enjoy our Swordfish Paradise beach home as much as we do. May your days be spent relaxing in our pool and with your toes in the sand at the beach. It's 'just another day in paradise'!

Reviewer Comments:

Warning for those bringing their own vehicle. There is a tree that drop debris on vehicles when parked in the driveway. The debris leaves sap that ate through the clearcoat of our vehicle. The owner and rental company say, “They are unwilling to cover the cost”. The property looked nice in the pictures, but was not clean. I echo many other reviewers saying the property should have been cleaner. The first level bathroom had a layer of dust on the baseboards, toothpaste on walls and blood on the door. The carpets were in desperate need of replacing. The main level floors needed to be mopped. My 1 year old daughter's feet were black with hours of arrival. The appliances were lacking. There is a washer and dryer in unit, but it should be noted they are apartment sized. Two towels were an entire load (Not appropriate for a 4 bedroom unit). The stove had two electric burners that would sometimes take up to an hour to boil water. The refrigerator could not keep our food cold and spent the first several days living out of a cooler with bags of ice in order to keep our food cold. The ice maker was also broken, forcing us to purchase even more ice. When we called for maintenance, the repair man was well aware of the problem and the problem was not corrected. The AC could not maintain a comfortable temperature in the house, specifically the first floor. Door locks are worn and need replacing as well. Save your money and use a different real estate company We have stayed at an older unit down the street on the ocean last year with a different rental company. Although the place was more dated, it was far more clean and we had no issues with appliances or general property maintenance.

Reviewer Comments:

The property was satisfactory. I firmly believe it should be made known that this property has close to 50 stairs, and may not work with older adults and/or people with disabilities, heart conditions, knee problems etc. I think cleaning could have been better, there were areas of dust collecting in door corners. I had to call for a broom and dustpan. We did enjoy our stay in the area, plenty of good restaurants, the children had a wonderful time in the pool, and other attractions. Overall I would recommend this house, but make sure all guests realize that 2 bedrooms are located on first floor and the other 2 are on the third level.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful vacation! I think we had the best beach weather in like more than 15 years at the beach (and saw no sharks!). This was our first trip to Carolina Beach. The house was beautiful inside and worked very well for our 7 adults and 2 small children (and it looked like the pictures on the website). There was very many stairs (2-3 flights) to carry luggage and groceries up but we managed it. The walk to the beach (like 3-4 blocks) was not bad at all even with small children. The beach was not too crowded. The pool was nice even though it was a little dirty at times because the owner/pool-co/whomever does not seem to keep the pump filter cleaned out as often as needed. The Carolina Beach boardwalk area was a fun place to hangout, eat, ride rides, and eat Britt's (hot and delicious) Doughnuts.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was lovely and me and my family enjoyed our stay. The only issue was the stove was broken and I planned to cook 5 of the 7 nights and also breakfast every morning needless to say when I cut the stove on Sat. when we got there and the eye side blew sparks and the breaker we called right away and a repair man didn't come till Tues. and then came back on Wed. with the part to fix it, so I had to cook on the grill side up till Wed. needless to say it was very slow it took over an hour to boil water so most of my vacation was in the kitchen since it took so long to cook the food on the stove and the stairs were a little much for my parents. Thanks for letting us stay we did enjoy our time on vacation.

Owner's Response: Benita- We are happy to hear everyone enjoyed your time on vacation! Hate to hear you had the unanticipated issue with the stove but glad the Appliance Company was able to check all out on Monday when reported and get the parts ordered to repair on Wednesday. Hope you'll visit us at the beach again soon!

Location

From the Owner

Carolina Beach, NC is a beautiful beach vacation spot that's easily accessible from anywhere along the East coast and just a short 2.5 hour drive from Raleigh with tons of fun family activities all around. It retains a charming small beach town flavor but with plentiful activities, dining and shopping.

Activity and Interests

Swordfish Paradise is a short walk to sandy beaches and two short miles to Fort Fisher, the Confederate Museum and the North Carolina Aquarium. This area is full of fun summer activities for the entire family. Catch a short ferry boat ride to historic Southport. You can rent or charter fishing boats at the Marina which is less than two miles away. Within a 2 mile radius the entire family can enjoy amusement rides at the Boardwalk, fireworks and free movies during the summer. The nearby Carolina State Park offers boating, kayaking, hiking, bicycling and fishing. The town lake is less than a mile away and has paddle boats and a beautiful kids' playground. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within a 5 minute drive. More fun is only a 15 min drive away in downtown Wilmington's Riverwalk with restaurants, historic homes, and the USS North Carolina battleship.
