  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 2612 square feet

Banana Cabana is one side of a duplex (two sides). It can be rented as one side, or as a "whole". To rent both sides of the property, visit the property page called Salty Banana.

Banana Cabana is a luxury five-bedroom oceanfront property, with amazing ocean vistas from the kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and two oceanfront decks. Appreciate a impressive sunrise over the ocean, and throughout the day watch schools of dolphins swim by and flocks of pelicans dive for fish. Stroll out to the wide white-sand beach with direct access from the main living floor.

The home is charmingly decorated to make this your home away from home during your stay. The wide-open floor plan between the kitchen, dining area, and living room, with ample seating, accepts for painless entertaining and quality family time. The well-equipped gourmet kitchen and gas grille make cooking a breeze. Afterward, relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine as the sun sets or take a dip in the lighted swimming pool. The home has a private, oceanfront pool and hot tub as well as an elevator.

Conveniently located within one mile is the Kure Beach town center, the famed Kure Beach Fishing Pier, Ocean Front Park with special events all year, Jack Mackerel’s Island Seafood, Big Daddy’s Seafood Buffet, and Freddie’s Italian (since 1940). Or walk up the beach a half mile to the Tiki Bar Pier, a great beach bar on the pier with modest plate seafood items. The home is within two miles of the NC State Aquarium at Fort Fisher, a civil war site, and about the same distance to the Boardwalk in Carolina Beach with live music, weekly fireworks (in season), and dozens of deep-sea fishing boats, eateries, and stores. For a change of pace, take the 30-min. car Ferry at the southern tip of the island to the beautiful historic town of Southport where many movies have been filmed.

Wilmington is a 25-min. drive away with its marvelous Riverwalk along the Cape Fear River, casual and fine dining, one of the biggest historic districts in the country, and the Battleship North Carolina, open for tours.

Grab your beach chair and a cold drink, and come see it for yourself!

Our top Wilmington, NC vacation rental home tips:

When to visit Carolina Beach & When to reserve a Carolina Beach rental home:

  • Booking your vacation rental in the Fall or Spring is our favorite way to save money on your rental home. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable homes. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August.
  • Book your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families book their Summer rentals during holiday get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some property managers offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Check with your property manager to see if discounts are available for your family.
  • Property management companies usually offer their guests an option to buy vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 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 issues or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for program terms and fees.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC area magazine upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great articles, travel guides have money saving offers on local tours, shops, and attractions.

How to select the perfect rental in Carolina Beach:

  • First and foremost, have your family choose vacation dates and a budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your family requires. NF1212A: Banana Cabana: Oceanfront duplex w/ Private Pool, Hot tub, and Elevator has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts is often accessible on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, contact the host before reserving the rental. Note that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • Is your group looking for unique amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters with amenity lists. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find the perfect rental home.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available before booking
  • Some rentals allow pets, and others don't. Allowable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask the host about pets before booking.

Additional considerations:

  • Add the host's contact information to your smartphone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Note any damages to the rental during check in, and immediately send them to the host. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that can be very helpful if a dispute is filed.
  • Property managers are available to help! Feel free to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will increase your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often an incredible resource to find the best local attractions.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Keep the property locked while you are out! Don't let thieves spoil your trip.
  • Just prior to departing, take a final walk-through to confirm you haven't forget anything. Re-check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Walk through the rental one final time and look for damages to contents or the property itself. We suggest walking through with the host whenever possible. If the property manager isn't available, take video of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent feedback to compel future bookings. They'll be much obliged for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
