Welcome to Bob’s Island Retreat, your quintessential hideaway located just a block from the gorgeous Carolina Beach. This inviting two-bedroom, two-bathroom abode is ideally placed near the entrance to Freeman Park, striking the ideal balance between a relaxing getaway and a beachside adventure.

Though the getaway once offered a slight ocean view between two distant buildings, nature’s touch has since enhanced the scene with flourishing palm trees, providing just a fleeting glimpse of the ocean’s grandeur. However, the appeal of Bob’s Island Retreat extends beyond the sea view, with two balconies that allow you to soak in the natural beauty surrounding the property. The front balcony whispers the presence of the close by ocean, while the rear balcony offers a striking view of the marshland. Here, during particularly huge high tides, the marsh transforms into an enchanting water landscape, creating a serene and photogenic backdrop for your stay.

Our guests have exclusive access to one of the island’s best swimming pools, known for its superb quality and peaceful setting, making it an ideal spot for those seeking a peaceful day of relaxation.

Pet owners will appreciate that Freeman Park accepts dogs to roam freely at any hour, ensuring that your furry friends can join in on the fun. On the rest of Carolina Beach, there are designated times for family pets on the beach, ensuring everybody has a moment in the sun.

Bob’s Island Retreat is equipped for comfort, featuring comfortable queen-size beds in both bedrooms and an additional twin-size air bed for an additional guest. Step out to discover multiple beach access points just a block away, ensuring your journey to the sand and surf is seamless and straightforward.

The island offers a plethora of rental options to elevate your beach experience. Whether you’re interested in exploring on a golf cart, riding the waves on a surfboard, or simply calming on a beach chair, you’ll find everything you need for a ideal day at the beach.

At Bob’s Island Retreat, every detail caters to your comfort and enjoyment, ensuring your stay is both relaxing and memorable. Whether you’re looking for a calming escape with impressive vistas of the transforming marsh or an active beach holiday filled with sun, surf, and sand, our home is primed to provide an memorable vacation experience at Carolina Beach.

Strategies for getting the best vacation rental experience:

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

  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The sooner you can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation rentals are booked early. Reserving your rental six - twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental.
  • Booking a rental in Fall or Spring months is a great way to save money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of suitable properties. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host whether your vacationing group qualifies for a special rate.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer renters an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly costs 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
  • Many property management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitor guide magazines which will include special deals, either offered directly by local companies, or through a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Start by choosing your the best vacation week and a maximum budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Bob's Island retreat has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts is normally available on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, reach out to the host before reserving your home. Note that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull out couches in living rooms. You will need to establish which bed configuration is best for your vacation.
  • Some properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional fees may apply. Ask the host about your furry family members before booking.
  • If there's a specific Wilmington, NC beach you love, browse homes that are either near by, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

Tips to have a wonderful stay:

  • Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Save the directions to your smartphone, and take a printed backup.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, intercom or coffee maker. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent quite a few issues.
  • Lock your rental while you're out and about. Protect your property!
  • Upon check-in, record any damages to the property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll magnify your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often a terrific resource to find the best local attractions.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can typically help. Who better to ask where to charter a fishing boat, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Double-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all of your belongings at check-out. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did you have a terrific vacation? Most rental management companies make it easy for clients to provide reviews. If your rental and/or property manager was great, they would love to hear it. If anything was wrong and they failed to address it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor.

Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
