Looking for a Pleasure Island hideaway thats under a 2 block hop to the Atlantic, is STOCKED with amenities, and has balcony's for DAYS to appreciate those painted sunrises and salty breezes? "A Wave from it ALL!" may be the sea-escape everyones been waiting for!

Managed by SWRE, this modern and impeccably accessorized multi-level Sandcastle brings the BEST of our Island right to your doorstep. From vitamin sea and beach-combing, to a fast jaunt Downtown, heaven is TRULY at your sandy fingertips!

Pleasure Island (Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Fort Fisher) has become a RAPIDLY increasing vacation (and full-time!) destination for the East coast and beyond for many reasons. Because we are in fact a true island, our "max. capacity" and restricted parking options will always limit the number of visitors who can both rent on and visit our Island simultaneously! Although always relative, this provides a bit more elbow room and open space than average for those looking for more “distancing” and privacy than some bigger public beaches. It’s a family-aligned beach with a touch of everything one might be looking for! It’s an AMAZING place to visit, live, and never leave!

The home lies directly in the middle of both Carolina and Kure Beaches and is a long walk or short drive from downtown Carolina Beach and everything that is has to offer. In Carolina Beach you’ve got the boardwalk, eateries, and local stores of all kinds. If you like adventures, the marina is also there where you can take an offshore fishing trip, diving excursion, or event boat out for a sunset sail. Camping more your thing? Bring the 4X4 and drive (and camp) on the beach at Freeman Park, located on the North End of the island. You can also head down to Kure Beach and fish directly off their fishing pier compete with bait, tackles, and more! The Carolina Beach Lake is close by, hosting a weekly Farmer’s Market every Saturday, FIREWORKS every Thursday, and outdoor summer movies on Sunday’s (on a enormous inflatable screen in the middle of the lake!). We welcome you to sit back, relax and savor yourselves because that's exactly what the beach is for!

The entry to this 4 bedroom/3.5 bath townhome *sandcastle* opens into a single car garage with ample storage space for all your personal beach nick-knacks, bicycles, trikes and belongings! Moving inside from the garage to your immediate right resides Bedroom #1, the “kids’ room” with a Twin + Full bunk bed, intelligent TV, and Full bathroom #1 (complete with a shower/tub combo) directly next door to round out this ideal ground floor space for ANY age! (*There is a intelligent TV in EVERY room, including the upper deck space!)

Heading West deeper into the home sits Bedroom #2 with a Queen-size bed, direct “Jack & Jill” bath access to bathroom #1, and a intelligent TV of its own. Steps away from bedroom #2 is the ground floor elevator ready to test your altimeter and whisk you upstairs! The combination of both a private elevator and staircase accepts the entire family to traverse the home with comfort and ease as it extends to each floor, less the rooftop terrace deck.

As you make your way upstairs, you pass a side door to and from the home on your right which accepts quick access to the outdoor shower and a sure-fire way to ensure the sand dunes remain outside for ALL to enjoy! As the local (or express!) train continues on, an expanse of beautiful expansive vistas and sliders stop you in your tracks. The master bedroom (Bedroom #3) complete with a King size bed, ensuite bathroom (#2) with a double vanity, hottub tub, and standup shower stall accompanies your private upsized East facing balcony (*complete with Sea Salt breezes at no added cost! *

Heading West back into the hallway, bedroom #4 with a Queen size bed along with Bathroom #3 (complete with a shower/tub combo) come into view just as you hop or ride up to your broad third floor open entertainment area, kitchen, dining room, family room, and more! Bathroom #4 (the half bath WC) sits just off your modern chef’s kitchen complete with granite, granite, and more granite! Modern stainless appliances and a kitchen chocked full of amenities give you access to dine both IN and OUT like royalty. A few of the amenities supplied by your Owners include courtesy Eco Conveniences travel size organic soap/shampoo/lotions and huge Aussie shampoo and conditioner are left in the bathroom of each bath as well. Also, a roll of TP in each bathroom, 1 roll of PT in the kitchen, 2 garbage bags per garbage, laundry pods, dishwasher pods, dryer sheets, hand soap, dish soap, a sponge, Cafe' Bustelo, Tazo Tea, and pure cane sugar in each kitchen. Additional items are likely on sight as well!

An eclectic mix of family room furnishings is meant to provide something for different for each of our guests Variety is EVERYTHING! Also on this floor, you’ll find a remote work cubby (*use sparingly*), sizable screen TV, and another private deck space providing both interior AND exterior dining options to suit the weather, mood, or ambience.

As if partial Atlantic vistas, crisp morning breezes, and pelicans floating in tandem overhead less than two blocks away from Wilmington Beach wasn’t enough, a spiral staircase takes you up a final flight to a really remarkable indoor/outdoor space complete with solar lights, an array or outdoor seating, yet ANOTHER intelligent TV, and access to a tranquility and respite that will simply melt your cares into the sun-kissed seascape before you. It’s not IF you deserve this, it’s how quick can you visit!

Getting around

There isn’t anywhere or anything on our Island that isn’t accessible with foot power. Downtown Carolina Beach has multiple vendors such as Tony Silvagni’s Surf School @ 308 S Lake Park Blvd, Carolina Beach, NC 28428 (bicycles, paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks, chairs, and umbrellas) for rent as an alternative to walking or driving. There's Sun Fun Units @1204 N Lake Park Blvd Unit F Carolina Beach, NC 28428. Taxi’s (local golf cart taxi’s) and Uber’s are also generally available for an assist when needed as well throughout the island! You can catch a Ferry to Southport in Kure Beach @ 2422 Fort Fisher Blvd S Kure Beach which leads to another ferry to Bald Head Island where NO CARS are allowed at all! After all, you won’t catch many locals going OTB! (Over The Bridge). Everything you need is right here!

Guest access

The HOME: Guests have full access to their own private HOME (never shared), decks, balconies and backyard.

PARKING: Each reservation will have access to (3) FOUR-FIVE assigned parking spaces (2 covered/2-3 in the driveway) along the front left of the building. (*upsized cars depending).

•Closest BEACH access: Ocean Blvd Public Beach Access (Ocean Blvd).

Interaction with guests

I will be available for check-in and general assistance until 8PM EST. Anything with the exception of an emergency (ie. flood, fire, or another *safety* related risk sent to Maintenance) will be responded to ASAP the following day :)

Other details to note

•Linens (sheets, bath towels, beach towels, wash cloths, floor towels, pillowcases, etc.) along with pillows and a summer comforter ARE supplied in your suite rental! Please make sure just your TOWELS (bath and beach) are placed in the basket or hamper before your departure! Please let all BED LINENS on the beds remain on the beds for our TEAM to take care of! A sincere thanks for your help and we hope that YOU have an AMAZING ADVENTURE!

•Salt Water Real Estate has partnered with the absolute best vendors our Island has to offer to help ensure guests can spend more time appreciating themselves and less time researching! Our partners include the Tony Silvagni Surf School for professional surf lessons, bicycle, umbrella, and chair units, Salty Dog Yoga, Squared Away Cleaning and Maintenance, and Griffin Linens. Our partners support guests of Salt Water Real Estate with the highest caliber of local services for extremely competitive and oft discounted pricing. They all contribute to the “Salt Water” experience and we <3 them for it!

•ALL rooms are non-smoking (including vaping) and a heavy cleaning/repair charge can result if not adhered to. This includes porches, decks, balconies, and walkways.

• SWRE contractual peaceful hours begin at 9:00pm EST. Town ordinance may allow more latitude with regards to noise (11:00pm) but our expectations are to help ensure all guests, locals, and neighbors alike have an enchanting experience.

•NO BBQing on ANY decks or porches. This is a humongous fire hazard and is fineable by the town (as is removing batteries from any smoke or co2 alarms). We work extremely hard to keep all our guests safe, and sometimes that takes teamwork!

•Please always consider TRAVEL INSURANCE from your respective booking site or vendor to help protect your costs in case of inclement weather or last-min. travel complications (court, illness, etc.). These items are NOT returnable scenarios unless the property itself is compromised. If that does happen, we will do our absolute best to find you alternative housing.

Rental home tips and tricks:

When to reserve a Wilmington, NC rental home & When to go:

  • Summer months are high season in the Wilmington, NC area. To get the best value, try changing your group's trip dates to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and even October offer great temperatures, fewer crowds, and reduced traffic. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally open a year in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families book their Summer vacations during Winter holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Property managers sometimes offer promotional rates for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your family before you book.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners usually offer their guests an option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Many management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitors guides which often include special offers, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Wilmington, NC visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Start by choosing trip dates and a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group requires. \"A WAVE from it ALL!\" SEA everything you DREAM of! has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly accessible online. If they are not listed, reach out to the host before you book the rental. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes pull-out couches.
  • Does your group require specific amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters with amenity lists. Use these filters to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Proper accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.
  • Some rentals allow pets, but some don't. Acceptable types of family pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the host about pet restrictions before booking.

Tips for your stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's phone number and check in/check out procedures for your rental. Store the host's contact information in your smartphone.
  • To make certain that no damages are attributed to your family's stay, make a record of any problem areas upon check in. Contact the property manager immediately to record any issues. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded concerns and contact attempts will be useful.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are an incredible source for finding the best local attractions.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can often help. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Lock your rental while you are away. Keep your property safe!
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, take a walk through the rental property to reconfirm you've collected all personal items. Re-check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Leave feedback! Hosts rely on excellent feedback to compel more reservations. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationing families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
