Recent Pleasure Island, NC vacation rental reviews

Good heat in winter. Nicely stocked kitchen. Could use a cheese grater. Floors on first floor are very cold so glad we brought slippers. They have a kcup coffee machine but it's tricky to use. They also have a regular drip and it works well. Spacious and close to town and walking distance to Italian and gourmet food store ( veggie wagon) looking forward to coming back.

We loved our stay! The view from the deck is outstanding with frequent dolphin sightings. The furniture and beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the condo was very clean. Carolina Beach State Park has wonderful trails that we loved walking on with our dog. A YWCA heated indoor pool is 20 minutes away. We found amazing lattes at Malama Cafe. This was the perfect escape from winter snow! Thank you!

This property was perfect for our family and pet! Steps to the Lake Park to walk the dog and only a couple blocks from the beach.

Just a 20-minute drive south of Wilmington, you can stretch out on pristine shorelines, dig into a seafood boil lunch, and take in the coast. Pleasure Island is a major destination for Carolina locals and savvy beachgoers, due to its uncommercialized (and uncrowded) beaches. The island includes Kure Beach, Carolina Beach, and Fort Fisher.

The area makes a perfect backdrop to a family beach vacation, with its calm atmosphere and plenty of attractions. Grab some cotton candy or enjoy a Ferris wheel ride at Carolina Beach’s boardwalk, order a bowl of clam chowder at Michael’s Seafood, or tour the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. The fun begins with a Pleasure Island vacation rental.
