Rare ocean/lake view luxury condominium. Very spacious and comfortable at almost 2000 sq feet. Upscale throughout. Sleeps 10. The top floor as a king master bedroom with a large flat screen tv, lake view balcony, and a private master bath, half bath, gourmet kitchen, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, wine/coffee bar, dining/living room, large flat screen tv, beautiful furnishings with custom lighting, and a ocean view balcony. The lower floor has 2 tastefully decorated queen bedrooms and 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds. 2 full baths are located on this level as well. 2 of the 3 bedrooms have flat screen tvs. There is a lake view balcony off the rear bedroom. Separate heating and cooling zones. Private garage. Professionally provided linens and towels will be set up if requested. (Fees apply) Located on a semi private street across from the ocean. Just a few steps to the beach access. Take a short stroll to the boardwalk and enjoy the thrill rides, listen to live music at the pavilion, grab a slice of Frank's pizza, have a Britt's donut (rated #2 donut shop in the nation), chocolate-covered strawberries from the Fudgeboat, and watch the fireworks at dark. Highly rated restaurants preparing some of the finest seafood on the east coast are just minutes away. Or just stay in and view the fireworks from your ocean-side balcony. If being on the beach all day isn't enough, walk across the street to the lake and rent a paddle boat, let the kid's play on the playground, or sit at one of the gazebos located on the water. Take a ride down to Ft. Fisher and walk through the civil war museum (look for info on the Ft. Fisher Hermit) or go to the NC Aquarium at Ft. Fisher. The live oaks at Ft. Fisher is a perfect back drop for photos. Or go sea shell collecting here. Water sports are in abundance nearby with charter fishing, jet ski rental, surfing lessons, and sea kayaking. Two challenging golf courses are less than 10 minutes away. Whether it is sunbathing on the beach, renting scooters or a golf cart and sight seeing, or watching a free outdoor movie on Sunday nights at the Lake (located just across the road), there is lots to do on Pleasure Island and this condo is right in the middle of it all.
Overall this is an okay rental, was not worth 3600 for a week. Pros: large kitchen, close to beach access, keyless entry and good size garage. Cons: lacks sufficient patio furniture, no elevator access with lots of stairs, 2 small bedrooms with limited storage.
I traveled with my family and in-laws. The first thing I noticed was the sand all over the floors downstairs Our feet were filthy. The hardwoods upstairs really hide the dirt and grime. 2 of the bedrooms are very small, one with only a bed and small table. The twin/trundle room was not cleaned as there were chips all over the place and the patio had no chairs. The master bedroom was quite large, with only one chair on patio. The king size bed was too large for the space it is in, as there is no room on either side of the bed before there is wall. Better to climb off from the foot of the bed. The bathroom was small and shower door leaked all over the floor. The air was also an issue as it would never cool down below 75. Due to Covid, and traveling with an infant and older adults, I was not comfortable having people in and out of the unit to fix these issues but they were made aware before our departure of some other minor issues. There are a total of 4 units in this building and the walls are thin and you can hear everything from the people above you walking to the people going up and down the stairs in the main entrance. Driveway is very small but it was nice to have the garage to leave beach items in and not have to worry about more sand in the house. I would rate this property a 2/5. It could definitely use some work and more through cleaning prior to guest arrival, especially during these times due to the virus.
