About Nikki and Kevin Carlson
My family relocated from Pennsylvania to North Carolina in 2009 and prior to that, we were faithful Outer Banks visitors. That is, until we took a day trip to the closest beach to Raleigh. We had never heard of Carolina Beach but decided to give it a try and from that day on, it was our new favorite spot! It reminds me of the small town outside of Pittsburgh where we moved from, except with a beautiful beach, boardwalk and pier instead of a river and yellow bridge! We love the southern flare, the locals, the food and festivities, as well as the newly remodeled boardwalk, nightlife, fishing pier, and our favorite... the drive-on beach. Even when we couldn't get a last minute rental, we'd just pop a tent and camp out overnight. After several years of visiting, we decided it was time to find a place of our own and when this little gem showed up on the market, we jumped on it. Couldn't be happier about our decision! We look forward to sharing our happy place with people who may be visiting for the first time like us back then, as well as those who visit often and love Carolina Beach... like us now!
Nikki and Kevin Carlson purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Nikki and Kevin Carlson chose Carolina Beach
What we love about this property is the location and the view. It sits at the northern end of town and rather than facing either the ocean or the street like most condo buildings, it it situated facing south allowing for panoramic views of the ocean, the canal, and basically the entire town! It's close to the pier, beach food, tackle shop, bar, and Freeman Park. A few steps to beach access, ample parking, and two pools!

Good location for the money.
A good value for the money. Very short walk to the beach and easy walking distance to the pier. Place was clean however if your traveling with kids you may want to clean the random pills out of the medicine cabinet. The bed was to hard for our liking but everyone's different, also would be nice if the kitchen faucet didn't spray water everywhere. The Air conditioning is programmed to go to 70 every hour so if you like it cool when you sleep you will need to figure out how to reprogram it to stay where you want it. The thermostat thing really sucked as it took a while to figure out what was going on and I can't sleep when I'm hot. Overall we had a good time and enjoyed our stay.
Thanks for your feedback! We weren't aware of the faucet and will have that taken care of. We would have had the thermostat readjusted for you. The outside temps were below 70 so I think the thermostat programming may have been off, not sure. I'll make note in the Welcome Packet about the meds (should only be over the counter and in a childproof bottle though). Off season is usually a little different in that regard because we get alot of regulars and it's just become more of a shared place. But thank you again for your feedback, we'll make some changes for future guests and hope that you return next season (new kitchen counter top and bar top being installed soon 😊).
Cute-sea beach stay
Close to the ocean. Great amenities... Wish we had written in the guest book. A wonderful weekend stay
Glad you enjoyed yourselves... and the beach! This is time last year there was no beach left due to Florence, and the weather was chillier. Come back anytime!
Great getaway close to the ocean
Everything was great. Yes there are a lot of steps but we knew that going in (at least I did). Got to be able to see the ocean! Parking is tight under the building. If you have a large vehicle, it probably wont fit. everything was as stated. Thank you for the experience.
Cozy! And owners are fantastic!
The owners were VERY accommodating and quick to respond whenever we contacted them! The place was like a home away from home and had everything we could possibly need. I highly recommend!
Conveniently located and comfortable
We had a nice 2-night getaway. There was plenty of room for two adults, a 6-year-old and a baby. The condo is very close to the beach. The owners were very responsive and made the check in and check out process very easy. The condo is on the third floor, so there are a lot of steps, but they aren’t “high” steps and are easy to climb. We would stay again.
Thanks for the positive review and for choosing SeaBizkit! We hope you stay again too! I remember our first trip away when our first born was 6 mos old (Myrtle Beach). He's now 23. Time FLIES! Moments to treasure! 😍
We had a fantastic time spending three nights at this condo. Everything was even better than the pictures and the proximity to the beach was perfect! Loved the fact that we were on the top floor and had a great view of the ocean from deck. Nikki was a super communicator and was promptly available for any questions/concerns. We will gladly stay here again and would definitely recommend!
Thank you so much for that awesome review! We love to hear when our guests have a fantastic time. And thanks for the reminder that I need to update some of the pictures as we did get a new window in a new sliding door. I actually haven't even seen it yet I'll be there in a few days. Can't wait! Come back any time! Enjoy the rest of your summer.
