(28 traveler reviews)


Property Details

Updated: Nov 20, 2016
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Let the ocean lull you into deep relaxation while you are at Coral Surf. This oceanfront 2 bedroom is located on Carolina Beach Ave South, where you are away from the heavier traveled Lake Park Blvd. Just a few blocks down from the newly renovated Carolina Beach Boardwalk you are close to many of the attractions and restaurants of Carolina Beach. The condo is just steps from the beach, accessible from a private walkway. There is also a small community pool where you can relax and take in some rays. Watch the sunrise over the ocean from your deck then enjoy the evening breeze and the sound of the surf.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first attempt at renting along the NC shoreline. Stayed in Unit E-1 for two nights in mid-week. Condo was very clean and well kept. Had a great view of the ocean and a very short walk to get onto the beach. Had a very relaxing couple of days enjoying the quiet beach. Didn't get to meet Richard, but all was set up for us upon arrival and easy "checkout". Convenient location to restaurants and other attractions like Ft. Fisher, the Aquarium. Easy ride from there to downtown Wilmington. Next time will be for a longer period. Only thing wish I could have brought my Beagle with us.

We stayed in Coral Surf Unit C-1, owned by Richard Trubia. We had an awesome stay! The condo was very clean and neat, and we got to meet Richard. As I found out before we came, he is an all around great guy and very personable and is very hospitable and accommodating! We had tons of fun on our mini vacation and look forward to coming back and renting from Richard in the future! We highly recommend his rentals!

Great Location and Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great location. The unit was well-maintained and had everything we needed for the kitchen, as well as cleaning products, linens, etc. Richard was there to meet us and was just a phone call away. We had an enjoyable stay and would recommend this or any other of Richard's units.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit is in an exceptionally fine location. Views are wonderful - private walkway to the beach - great deck for eating and relaxing! Sound of waves - even in one bedroom as it had a south facing window. Although there are large hotels both north and south, this part of the beach was not crowded. There were bigger crowds away from us, especially north. Condo (we had D3) was exactly as described and Richard sent me pictures of it before renting, as it was different from the one listed. He also answered all my questions via a phone call so it helped me make the decision to take this condo. Nothing fancy and no overdone "updating." Just very comfortable with all the basic needs and very clean. Roomy - we were only one couple, but would easily do for two couples. Bed was very comfortable. We were incredibly happy and relaxed in our 3 day stay! Great to have covered parking. Owner was easily and immediately accessible via phone and email. We had no problems at all through out the stay. Thanks Richard! We would love to come again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Only consideration would be if you can't do stairs. For us, no problem - but we had 3 full flights and that might not work for everyone.

Very Clean!!

  • 5 of 5

I went down for three days at Christmas and it was perfect! It didn't hurt that the weather was 80 degrees and sunny for all three days! :) Condo was close enough for me to walk to boardwalk, Kate's Pancake House, Hang Ten Grill, and the Veggie Wagon. The place was super clean and I loved the fact that it was stocked with linens and paper products, along with cleaning supplies! The view from the balcony was beautiful, just know that when you are sitting on it, you can only see water, no beach, because of the height of the dunes.

This is a great place to stay, especially when you only need to sleep there. You are at the beach, people! Get out on it! :)

Owner's Response: Hi Amy, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Coral Surf. I do have some other upper floor units in this condo complex that will give you a view of the beach as well. Just keep in mind, that the higher you go the more steps to climb. First floor units have 16 steps, second floor units have 32 steps, and third floor units have 48 steps. If too many steps is an issue for anyone in your family, a lower floor unit might be better. All the condos are oceanfront with great views of the ocean. Thank you again for your business. Sincerely, Richard Trubia

From the Owner

I started looking for a vacation property on the ocean in 1985, and stumbled upon Carolina Beach. I looked at many condos here, and fell in love with Coral Surf. It is a very well built complex and has fared well over the years through many hurricanes. Coral Surf's location, just an eight minute walk south of the boardwalk is the best part of the beach.
