This unit is located on the North end of Carolina Beach in Spinnaker Pointe, which is in a world all its own. It is a gated community surrounded by million-dollar homes, and is close to the marsh, beach, marina, fishing pier, and food places of many flavors.
Our unit is located in the only building with an elevator — good if you have folks in wheelchairs or have other issues with stairclimbing. There is a ramp on one end of building to access the elevator easier.
The outdoor pool and hot tub add to the wonderful experience of beach life without the wind whipping sand in your face. But if you want to do ocean front, the beach is a short stroll along a private boardwalk over the marsh area, which can be an experience in and of itself, depending on time of day, with different types of marine life coming and going with the tides.
The boardwalk is also lighted at night, adding a different look and feel — something I highly recommend you experience at least once in the evening with the family. It can be quite magical for the kids.
The unit features 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a full kitchen complete with dinnerware and silverware, pots/pans, small appliances, refrigerator with ice maker, and an over-the-range microwave for all the comforts of home. Cable TV and Blue Ray player help provide entertainment for the down times. Wifi is also included.
Bedrooms are as follows..
Master bedroom has a queen bed with bedside tables, dresser, closet, remote control TV with cable, and private bath with shower. The window has a view of the pool area.
Second bedroom is located in the front of the condo with a nice large window. It has two twin beds, closet, dresser, and bedside table. A full bathroom is located next to it in the hallway.
The unit was recently repainted with upgrades in the bathroom. Appliances in the kitchen have been replaced with newer items. Flooring was recently replaced throughout the unit.
HEADING TO THE BEACH:
A nice buggy wagon is on the back porch for smaller kids to ride to the pool or beach. The sand can be hot at times on the beach, so this is a good way to help little feet make the trip much faster.
ALSO included this season: 4 beach chairs, a beautiful 8-ft beach umbrella, a sand anchor with table, 3 wave rider boards (boogie boards), and a 60-qt wheeled cooler for use on the beach or at pool/hot tub area. If you have tennis rackets, bring them! The resort has 2 tennis courts for use.
Overall, a nice, clean place for less money in a secure, quiet, and tranquil area of Carolina Beach.
Bring your boat and rent a slip at the marina for the week. Trailer parking is provided in the front area of the parking lot to help make the process a bit nicer. Visit Joynermarina com for more info.
Fishing from the pier is good, or a walk on the pier in the evening is always nice. It costs $10 per person to fish and you can bring two rods. Tickets are good for a 24-hour period. Parking is free if you are fishing, eating at the grill, or venturing to the 'High Tides' bar which has bands on some weekends during summer. The pier grill serves hot dogs, hamburgers, etc., if cooking is not desired.
Back at the main boat dock — the one you passed coming in on the left at the stoplight — you can go fishing offshore, go on a party boat, or head down to Britts' world-famous doughnuts on the boardwalk.
You can take your 4x4 on the North or South end of Carolina Beach. Both areas have fees of about $12 a day. The North area is located at the end of Canal St. The South end is located near the Fort Fisher aquarium area. go to this link for more info on Southern end: www ncparks gov - search for Fort Fisher.
Whatever you decide, there is plenty to do, or you can just hang out and enjoy the area. Either way you will be pleased.

Great Weekend Getaway
My best friend and I had a wonderful stay at this great little condo. The surrounding community was beautiful, and we felt so at peace. The walk to the beach was about 5 minutes over a lovely marsh boardwalk. The condo was neat and comfortable, and we enjoyed a few nights in watching movies. Since it was a rainy weekend, we didn't get to use the pool or hot tub, but they looked very nice and inviting. The restaurants and shopping were just a short drive away and offered a lot of choices. One of the best surprises was coming in and seeing coffee supplies and popcorn laid out for us to treat ourselves. That made just the right addition to a memorable weekend.
Quite, Relaxing and Private
Fantastic location, lovely property and amenties. The condo unit was clean, spacious and equipped with everything needed plus some wonderful extras that made our stay extra special. We did find the sleeper sofa to be uncomfortable both as a sofa and bed. It is very convenient to have the washer/dryer however the washer was VERY loud on the spin cycle. The boardwalk to the beach was very nice and we did not mind the short walk. The provided wagon with beach chairs, umbrella, etc was a lifesaver. We found one of the beach chairs broken when we arrived. Overall, we would definitely stay at this property again and highly recommend it to others. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Great Location and Great Value!
The condo was very clean, had everything we needed (plus lots of great extras like beach gear), scenic location, and was very reasonably priced. The walk to the beach was relatively easy (we have two small children and LOTS of stuff), and we enjoyed the picnic tables, charcoal grills, and pool. The owner is very responsive and very helpful. We have been going to Carolina Beach for several years and this is the first time we are staying in the same place more than once. We can't wait to return later this summer!
Nice unit in nice quiet, secure location
Wonderful location close to marina, fishing pier and other fun beach stuff. Resort is within gated community on north end of Carolina beach.
Nice easy walk to beach front from unit over private boardwalk over tidal creeks and marsh. You can see many different wildlife during the different tides.
Unit is clean, well stocked with plates, bowls, spoons, forks etc and having a dishwasher is NICE. My wife loved that plus the ice-maker in the freezer.
The pool area is close by and well maintained with chairs and tables for use. The water was clear and somewhat mild as the weather had been cooler and it had rained. But the hot tub more than made up for the difference.
The unit are within a gate community so it sorta a private area and very secure as only owners and renter can get in. You don't get the loud music and noise from cars like in the hotels down the beach front.
Going to the 4x4 area to watch the trucks, cars and vans come and go is quite entertaining. The get stuck, get pushed out and it a big party especially on fri and sat night during summer.. great fun.
and if you have a 4x4 you can drive out on that end of the beach with a permit. they sell them at the gate house at end of canel dr road.
We had a great time and look forward to returning again. sorry this review is late i forget to do it till now.. :)
Great price, clean condo away from hotel crowds
We had a great time at Carolina Bch NC. It's much less crowded than other area beaches but with plenty to do for the whole family. Kids loved the pool and the beach was just a short walk away so we could come back to the condo for a nap and then go back to the beach again. The unit was clean and fairly updated. The back deck was large and you get a wonderful view and breeze from up there.
At night we drove down to the boardwalk area and took the kids on the ferris wheel and a few carnival rides. You must visit Britt's Doughnuts! the doughnuts melt in your mouth and they have been written up in many magazines and on tv food shows.
All in all, I enjoyed the location of the condo because in 2011 we rented closer to the boardwalk, hotel area and the noise went on all night. No thanks. This condo is in a wonderful gated community and we felt our kids were safer and could sleep at night.
I highly recommend this unit, the location is the best!
Enjoyed staying here. Great directions and easily accessbile. Unit clean, well maintained. Full kitchen asccessories. Wagon in unit was the perfect thing to transport chairs, coolers, etc. to beach. Beautiful views. Quiet area. Enjoyed walking around and seeing the boats at pier. Great photo opportunities with deer, etc. Lots of choices for food. Gibby's is great with wonderful service. Opporunities for dinner / party cruises. Have shown pixs to friends and recommended unit to them. Good Deal all around!
