Located in the heart of Pleasure Island, you will love the location of this gorgeous condo. Once you settle in, you don't need your car again! You can walk to the boardwalk, shops, restaurants, etc. Rent some bicycles or take surf lessons right outside your door. Grab a coffee from the coffee shop or a beer from one of the local breweries (right on the island!) and sit on the deck enjoying the views of the sand and ocean. You can be sure to catch a school of dolphin around 9-11am from that deck. They are a site to watch.
The island is a true beach oasis with activities like the annual Blues Festival, free weekly family outdoor movies at the lake (a walk directly across the street), fishing charters, Saturday morning Farmer's market, charming boardwalk with homemade ice cream and fudge and even some thrill rides. Don't miss the nationally reknown Britt's Donuts! (The line is worth standing in, trust me on this!) Want a romantic dinner? Head to the outdoor porch at Havana's for some crab dip or kick off your shoes and walk south on the beach a few hundred feet to the Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar (live music on the pier is great - and yes it's kid friendly too).
Speaking of the younger residents - drive down the island into Fort Fisher to visit the amazing NC Aquarium, tour the fort and learn the history and ride your bikes along the rocky coastline for some amazing views. You will be amazed when you see the old oak trees! Or take a walk across the street to the Lake, run on the greenway or just sit in the verdana on the pier and watch the jumping fish. Next door is Squigley's Ice Cream known for their famous "Squiggle" which is any one of 4000+ combinations of deliciousness.
Take the car into downtown Wilmington and you won't be disappointed. Shops and restaurants line the cobblestone streets. Tour the Southern mansions, listen to live music on the Riverfront or take the horse and carriage ride while you learn the history of this amazing southern riverfront town. Don't miss stopping in the Cotton Mill. It's a converted mill now home to restaurants and stores. Wilmington, NC is also known as the Hollywood of the South and is the backdrop to MANY films and TV shows. Don't be surprised if you see a famous face or two while you're in town. If you're interested, you can even schedule a tour at Screen Gem Studios.
This little piece of heaven is a place not to be forgotten. You can do as much or as little as you like, as you relax and unwind enjoying the beauty and peace all around you.

About Marc Pappalardo
Marc and Kim Pappalardo.......We relocated to North Carolina in 1996 and we absolutely love it! Several years later, we purchased our place at Carolina Beach and it's truly our Happy Place. Feel free to call or email us with any questions. We always love talking about the great vacation ahead of you!
Why Marc Pappalardo chose Carolina Beach
When we first saw our place at Carolina Beach, we absolutely fell in love with it's view. We bought it from the original owner and it was very outdated. Over the years, we have done massive renovations to make it the stylish, yet warm place that it is today. After the first year, we decided to open it up to others, so they can enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Condo unique
The first thing that people fall in love with, is the view from our condo. You can see the waves crashing on the beach and if you're lucky, you'll get to see the family of dolphins playing in the ocean. One of the best features is it's proximity to everything. We are beachfront and a short walk to the lake with a walking trail, paddle boats & kayaks, playground, shopping, coffee shops, ice cream shops and much more. Once you park your car, in the private off street covered parking spaces, you'll never have to drive it until your vacation is over. We are located on a part of the beach where we've never seen it crowded. It's just the perfect place to relax and make lots of memories.
