About this Property

Pleasure Island (Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Fort Fisher) has become a RAPIDLY increasing holiday (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 suite is in the heart of Carolina Beach and moderate walking distance to downtown 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? Come with 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 appreciate yourselves because that's exactly what the beach is for! * (due to Covid, please be prepared for periodic deviations from our usually scheduled events).

"A touch of Heaven" beach condo suite 24A walks you up (or use the onsite elevator!) 3 stilted flights and opens up to a layout consisting of two inviting bedrooms (one Queen in the master and two Twin's in the second bedroom) along with a Queen size auto-inflating living room pull out if requiring just a bit more guest space. Linens are included for stays of 7+ NIGHTS!

A galley kitchen rests just off the living room and dining area while the entirety of the condo overlooks a expansive expanse of our Atlantic Sea. The kitchen is outfitted will all the basic preparing and dining silverware one can expect (plates, bowls, cups, silverware, etc.). In addition, there is a microwave, toaster, coffer maker and blender ready to help make yourself at home (while on Vacay!). Courtesy organic soap and shampoo are left in the bathroom of each suite as well as a (1) starter roll of TP, a (1) garbage bag, dish soap, and a sponge in each kitchen. *It is important to note that it is NOT an owner’s job to give personal family items for visitors. From toiletries and linens, to community food stuffs and condiments it is ESPECIALLY important during this current climate for any used items of another to be discarded before our new visitors arrive to ensure an optimally hygienic space

The living room includes a huge sliding door where you can watch the pelicans roost and waves crash without moving an inch. A TV and WIFI connection will ensure you stay briefly connected with the outdoor world before heading back to hunt for the ideal shell.

The unit's ONE QUEEN bed, ONE QUEEN pullout, and TWO TWIN bed's consist of either a plush delight bed or a new encased 8” memory foam/cooling gel composition bed because we want all of our visitors to be appealing when it comes time to recharge (*the Queen pull out is an air bed).

We equip each suite with its own combination of books, games, and misc. accessories to help cover the basis for our visitors to savor themselves in rain or shine. Sometimes however, these items are removed from the suite and not replaced, and we do not always realize it (tsk tsk!). If you notice something we’ve bragged about missing please let us know!

The outdoor shower is located outdoor in the pool area to help get that sand off of those toes! ***Currently, the pool is set to open 5/1/22***

Neighborhood overview

Pleasure Island is a coastal barrier island in Southeastern North Carolina, USA just south of the City of Wilmington. Pleasure Island is located within Federal Point Township, in New Hanover County. The coastal resort towns of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, as well as the annexed communities of Wilmington Beach and Hanby Beach are located on the island. The home itself is brief ride or long walk from Downtown Carolina Beach with its stores, activities and dining. There are fireworks during the summer every Thursday nighttime, Movies at the lake each Sunday nighttime, and local fairs around the lake each Saturday morning (refer to carolinabeach.org for additional info!).

Carolina Beach is a mix of friendly locals, snowbirds, and visitors all looking to hideaway the inland and enjoy the sand, surf, and sun. We really have an striking community! Carolina Beach and the surrounding neighborhoods offer an array of sights and activities to enjoy while here. Some of these examples are (but not limited to) a subtle beach hike through Carolina Beach State Park, Fishing on the Kure Beach Pier, kayaking to one of the many islands surrounding the Intracoastal Waterway, watching canons blast during a historical reenactment at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site, or petting some Sting Rays at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. This doesn’t even include the aweing scenery of Airlie Gardens, and our very own battleship (USS NC) in Wilmington! Perhaps more calming and less “experience” is your speed? Our own local Brewery (Good Hops) along with a round of Frisbee golf may be what the doctor ordered!

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!

Other things to note

•Salt Water Real Estate has partnered with the absolute most charming vendors our Island has to offer to help ensure visitors can spend more time relishing 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, TNL Kleans, and Oceanside Linen Units. Our partners support visitors 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 suites are non-smoking (including vaping) and a heavy cleaning/repair charge can result if not adhered to. This includes porches, decks, balconies, and walkways.

•Linens: All visitors staying 7+ NIGHTS receive a basic courtesy linen package of sheets and basic bath a kitchen towels (not beach towels). We partner with Oceanside Linens & Units for any visitors looking to rent an additional linen package, beach towels, of children items as opposed to bringing or buying your own. They will deliver directly into the suite in advance of your stay!

• SWRE contractual peaceful hours begin at 9:00pm EST. Town ordinance may accept more latitude with regards to noise (11:00pm) but our expectations are to help ensure all visitors, 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 visitors safe, and sometimes that takes teamwork!

•Please always consider TRAVEL INSURANCE from your respective renting 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 unit itself is compromised. If that does happen, we will do our absolute best to find you alternative housing.

Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Most tourism bureaus will offer you promotional guide books with special packages for rental homes, restaurants and activities. These guides may provide a good start to your rental search.
  • Willing to change your trip dates? Off-peak times offer remarkable savings.
  • Several management companies and owners offer discounts for active duty and veteran men and women of the U.S. Military, or repeat vacation goers to the same vacation home. Make sure to ask property owner to see if your travelling gang is eligible for a price reduction.
  • Some rental homes are essentially catered to specific guests, whether it is downtown homes with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center homes with walkable access to night life or waterfront homes that have private windsurfing launching areas. Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the adventures and locations you are most interested in.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual property owners frequently offer their customers the chance to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the basic term cost, offers visitors reimbursement of their rental expenses for any missed resulting from personal medical related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected motel stay or extra gas.

How to Book a Vacation Home

You may be surprised to discover just how many rental homes are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of properties available allows them to find an suitable getaway to accommodate their Carolina Beach gang, from restful condos to huge event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of rental homes in Carolina Beach are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local property management agencies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their vacation home, management companies are instrumental in assisting guests with making reservations, check-in, housekeeping services, as well as routine service issues that may occur.

Below are great tips and strategies to help you understand the rental search and booking process.

Finding and booking the right rental:

Before you decide to book ""A touch of Paradise" Oceanfront condo suite 24A", go through our brief list of considerations.

The Sooner, The Better

Carolina Beach rental homes start booking very early. To ensure the greatest choice of properties, we suggest searching and reserving your Carolina Beach getaway Six-12 months before your travel dates, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental home..

Pick a Town and Date

Consensus can be tough between family members, but once this challenging part is finished everything will begin to drop in place.

Just How Much Rental home Do You Really Need?

Confirm who is joining, and just how many/what sort of bedroom setup you'll need. Try to remember that a lot of rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to determine what is acceptable for your party. Generally rental home listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

What Are You Prepared to Spend?

Make certain ""A touch of Paradise" Oceanfront condo suite 24A" works with your price range *during your desired week*. If many groups or loved ones are sharing the cost, check that each person understands their responsibility and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute. Generally speaking, a single person in the group will be in charge of making the full reservation and recovering each party's share.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is your group searching for? Do you just desire a home with a pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or near a city setting? Are extras like beach chairs, barbecue grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental charge? Make a list of priority features to guide narrow your search.

Special Issues to consider

Optimal accessibility could make or ruin a trip for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is required, factor that into your search. Nearly all vacation home listings will include a list of amenities.

Think About Furry Family Members?

Make sure you include your companion! Animals are welcome at a number of vacation homes, but policies differ. Examine your agreement very carefully! Additional charges may apply when animals are added. When in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Searching the Internet

. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Carolina Beach local vacation rentals" for local property management companies. Local vacation rental management companies pride themselves on an exceptional rental experience.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to ensure the property has everything that you need. If something is missing, the rental management company might know of comparable homes that better fit your style and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season week, try getting an extra night. Off-peak weeks will be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read the Contract

You really need to know which services are included:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the standard rate, vacationers will have to pay state taxes when booking ""A touch of Paradise" Oceanfront condo suite 24A", in addition to any other additional fees which might be required depending on their situation, including a dog charge, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Be sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs between 1% - 5% of your base vacation rental rate, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any nights missed resulting from personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Booking

When you think you've identified "the one", start the reservation process. You will probably have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Help

Put the rental manager's contact info into your smart phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your trip.

Congratulations on booking your vacation rental! You're on your way to a phenomenal vacation!

During your Stay

  • To assure no damages are associated with your visit, make a record of any problem areas of the property. Get in touch with the property manager immediately to report your findings. If there is a disagreement about liability later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will probably be valuable.
  • Should there be any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, house access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager immediately. A quick phone call eliminates many head aches.
  • Be considerate of the local community. Often times, nearby households are lived in by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a visit substantially more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Local residences may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best places for shopping?
  • Remember to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home secured when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Check to make sure you've packed everything. Inspect drawers, bath cabinetry and cabinets.
  • When your things are all out, perform a walk-through of the property to verify no property damage occurred during your stay. If at all possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental? Just about all property management companies and rental search sites make it easy for customers to provide comments. If the rental and/or property manager was top-notch, they will likely appreciate your recommendations. If something went wrong, we advise being kind but genuine with regards to stay. Top owners and managers will work very hard to correct the issue.

Iterate

Hold a meeting with your traveling companions. Did they feel about the rental choice? Maybe everything was wonderful and you're ready to reserve the same rental for your next vacation. Maybe the rental property was not quite right, and you'll better understand how to filter your search for the next vacation.

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. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. 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.
