Welcome to Serenity Cove! Five Star - Totally Upgraded Accommodations for 2024!

BOOK NOW FOR Spring / Summer 2024! Why stay at “OLD” when you can book at “NEW”? New floor, New Kitchen Cabinets, New Appliances, New Entertainment systems, New Bathrooms, …Can't get any closer to the Beach/Ocean! Spectacular View! This is a First Floor Luxury Direct Ocean - Beach Front Condo! Just Steps to the Beach! Wi-Fi! Linens Included. This striking first floor condominium comes with an broad deck with 2 sliding glass doors that lead to the living room and master bedroom with the most comfortable upgraded king-size bed. A second deck overlooking the full-size pool leads to the second bedroom, complete with a cozy queen bed and twin trundle bed. Even though it is on first floor, it's high enough to view over the dunes and see the beach/ocean. First floor means less steps to the condo. Especially helpful when you are lugging baggage, food and beach supplies.

This condo has one of the biggest oceanfront decks in Carolina Beach: Covered Deck (12' x 24') - Watch the sunrise or view the dolphins and surfers play in the sea. Most of our guests spend much of their time on the deck that has a very comfortable couch & chair, 6 high sitting captain chairs and a bar height table set to savor the view, dine, or play games. Even if rain, you can sit out on the deck appreciating the beach/ocean sights since it is covered. Just below the deck is an outdoor shower and in the grass area, we have a BBQ to appreciate preparing your food outside.

The Kitchen has brand new top of the line cabinets, counter tops and all is decorated in warm comfortable colors. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to prepare your meals. The condo is also Wi-Fi Ready. You will find books & games for your added enjoyment.

Just outside the condo is the huge, impressive beach that stretches for miles. There is even a lifeguard stand right on the beach, outside our building for your added swimming safety!

Adding to the enjoyment of your stay is the striking town of Carolina Beach itself. Carolina Beach is a real, year-round community with friendly people, a wide range of eateries, famed Britt’s Doughnuts, ice cream, frozen yogurt, coffee stores, bars and cozy beach stores of all kinds. On Thursday nighttime in the summer there are fireworks from the beach and complimentary family movies at the close by lake on Sundays - check for updates on activities before and during your stay. You won’t want to miss the Boardwalk, ranked one of the top 10 boardwalks in the country by Food and Wine Magazine, with its stores and fun food as well as the Ferris wheel and carnival rides throughout the summer.

All of this, and Hang Ten Grille, Squiggles, Pops Diner, Majik Beans, Sea Merchant market, Tony's bicycle/surf rental, Vinny's Pizza, Granny's Kitchen, Carolina Smokehouse, Kure Beach pier/bait and gift shop, Freddie's Restaurant, Kure Beach diner, Jack Mackerel's Island Grille, Happy Hippie's coffee shop, tennis/pickleball courts and playground - all of this and more are within walking distance! A short walk from the condo is the Ocean Grille Restaurant and Tiki Bar which offers outdoor bar service and live music while overlooking the ocean.

Rent or bring your bicycle (bicycle rack on south side of building next to beach access path) and ride through New Green Way trail which can be accessed about ¼ mile up South Carolina Ave. Or, if you prefer hiking, head out to the wooded trails at the Carolina Beach State Park which runs along a riverbed. Either location is also great for running.

Visit The Carolina Beach Marina and take a sightseeing cruise or charter fishing expedition. Anglers, the fishing is great! Fish on the beach, from the pier, catch a head boat, charter a boat, or launch your own at a public launch. There are many water sports to enjoy. You can rent or bring your own equipment for snorkeling, surfing and boating adventures.

Visit the North Carolina Aquarium located at the south end of the island or take a short ferry ride to Southport for the day, where you can enjoy quaint shopping, sightseeing and incredible local seafood dining on the water. Historic Wilmington, on the Cape Fear River only 20 mins. away, is where you'll find the USS North Carolina Battleship, ghost walks, horse drawn carriage rides, boat excursions, waterfront eateries, antique stores, and more.

These are just a few reasons why visitors appreciate returning to Carolina Beach at all times of the year. For more information, please refer to the Carolina Beach website at https://www.carolinabeach.org/

Our top Rental booking tips and tricks:

When to go & When to book:

  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacations during holiday get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summer is high season in Carolina Beach. Book your rental in Fall or Spring to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer months.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your family qualifies for a special rate.
  • Property managers frequently offer guests an option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine upon checking in. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guides contain discounts for nearby tours, shops, and attractions.

Filter your rental search:

  • To start, have your group select trip dates and a max budget.
  • Note the number beds and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Fully Upgraded for 2024! Huge Deck, Full-Size Pool, Beach Front, Linens Included has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts is regularly available online. If not, call the property owner before you reserve your rental. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • Some properties allow pets, and others do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the property manager about your furry family members before booking.
  • Are you visiting for a single event or attraction? Use a map search to browse nearby rentals.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental

More considerations for your visit:

  • Add the host's contact info to your phone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Hosts are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your rental home while you're out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • Document any issues with the rental at check in, and immediately e-mail them to the host. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that are useful if a dispute is filed.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like obnoxious vacationers disrupting your life at home. Apply the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great local food and places you would've not otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Double-check every room of the rental property to make sure that you've packed all of your family's items at departure. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property owners rely on excellent feedback to stimulate more bookings. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other families will appreciate that you share your experience find their best vacation home. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.
