Cute condo, nice location, good price

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here as a group of three friends looking for a nice, quiet place near the beach. The condo is a great size, with three ample bedrooms and plenty of common space, and it's nicely decorated. We liked being right across the street from the beach, and within a reasonable drive to the amenities of Kure Beach and Carolina Beach. We didn't realize that it's standard practice to bring linens, so we found ourselves without sheets and towels initially, but Karl was very responsive and came right over to fix the problem (and also to get the wi-fi going, which worked well after that). The bonus was that he also gave us some good local recommendations, which we appreciated. We'd recommend this rental if you want to stay at the quiet end of the beach for a very good price.

Great Location, Pools, and beach access

  • 5 of 5

Great little condo. Sleeps 4 dulls and 2 kids very nicely. Across the street from beach with private access. Nice outdoor pool and indoor pool. Plenty of other stuff to keep you busy if stay off the beach for some reason. Only two slight negatives, no WiFi with 6 mobile devices on data plans and the cell signal was poor in the building and one of the living room couches was pretty uncomfortable so made watching a little late night TV for the family challenging on the one TV. But for the value, beach access, complex amenities, location to Fort Fisher, Carolina Beach and boardwalk and I can go on and on, you cannot beat it. It was easily our best family vacation because how awesome Kure and Carolina beach are and this condo was a great part of it. Working with Karl was also great and we arrived a little early and he let us drop out stuff off and all in all could not ask for much more

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed for an abbreviated Memorial Day Weekend... but had a blast at Karl's condo! I'm from Connecticut and my sisters live in Chapel Hill, and every MDW we go to the beach (My mom and step-father reside in Wilmington) for a little family get together. This year, we chose Karl's place for the proximity to the beach and amentities provided at Ocean Dunes. What a great buy!! My step-father has COPD, so the elevator and simple walk across the street to the beach made it comfortable for him to enjoy everything with the rest of the family - something no other location we have found so far has offered. There was plenty of room for our guests (My husband and I, my 2 sisters, and on one night, 2 of the kids stayed on the pull out couch). We cooked breakfast every morning, and were able to pack up a lunch in a cooler... then returned to the condo and grilled by the pool every night for dinner! Much cheaper and easier than having to go out all the time! Can't recommend Karl enough - very easy to work with (even when I misunderstood checkout time - thanks for working with us!) and an overall nice guy!

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Karl's condo on short notice. He was very helpful, friendly. We were very pleased with the condo itself...we had a 7 yr old and a 3 yr old...we walked to the beach everyday.....very close for them. The other amenities were great....walked each time.

He had everything we needed to cook and serve meals....which we usually do because of the young kids.

Thanks Karl for working with us.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a fabulous weekend in this spacious, well laid out condo at a wonderful price! The amenities in the neighborhood were perfect and the convenience to local attractions can't be beat. We especially enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. Access to the beautiful beach was close and easy to get to. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend staying here and plan on doing it again.

Owner's Response: I beleive this is one of the very best bargains along the mid altlanic coast. It has great amenities and is clean, convienient and comfortable. Give it a try. I apreciate thoughtful renters that appreciate a bargain and in exchange care for the property. I've never had to keep a deposit....knock on wood.

Great stay, great price, great beaches!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved having this spacious condo for our family of 5 to stay in. It was great because we put the kids to bed, then went outside to the deck to relax. You can't see the ocean, but you can hear the soothing waves. This condo couldn't be closer to the beach at Fort Fisher... which is why we were in the area. Wish we could have stayed longer. I recommend it if you're looking for a cost effective family vacation, and Karl, the owner was very easy to work with.

Happy Vacationing!

Owner's Response: I occasionally look at the other rentals and price mine so my clients get the best value on the beach. Mine is just across the street from the beach. Compared to ocean front rates on a comperable unit, a family can typically save enough each day to have a nice dinner out.

Location

Activity and Interests

You can grill outdoors and relax under the outdoor gazebo adjacent to multiple outdoor pools just

off the beach. You're within an easy walk/bike ride to the Fort Fisher Historic Site, North

Carolina Aquarium, Kure Beach Fishing Pier or a ferry waiting to float you to historic Southport.

Spend the day just relaxing, surf fishing or exploring the only natural coquina outcropping of rock

on the coast of North Carolina where you can find a variety of marine life and which makes an

excellent backdrop for memorable family photos. These rocks are home to a variety of marine life

such as starfish, whelks and sand dollars. If you enjoy surf fishing, the local fisherman claim

this section of beach to be the best on the island. Historic downtown Wilmington is only 20 minutes

away where you can visit a variety of places including antique shops, fantastic seafood restaurants,

eclectic boutiques, specialty museums, botanical gardens and historic mansions. Other local

activities include, scuba diving off shore wrecks teeming with marine life, deep sea fishing,

golfing, tennis, state parks. If you prefer to venture further, Myrtle Beach is only a 90-minute

drive. Ocean Dunes and Pleasure Island has something to offer everyone. We look forward to having

you as our guest.
