Looking for an ocean front get-a-way to enjoy those painted beach sunrises and salty evening breezes? "Candlewood Sands" suite #1 may be just the home away from home you are looking for! The "Candlewood Sands" property consists of two single family cottages (one in front of the other) with front row sights, sounds, and experiences. Each cottage has its own ocean view balconies or decks, along with a shared beach access to make our guests time beach-combing and sun-seeking an Ocean BREEZE!

The space
Pleasure Island (Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Fort Fisher) has become a RAPIDLY increasing vacation (and full-time!) destination for the East coast and beyond for many reasons. Because we are in fact a true island, our "maximum 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 larger public beaches. It’s a family-oriented beach with a touch of everything one might be looking for! It’s an AMAZING place to visit, live, and never leave!

The suite rests equidistant between both Carolina and Kure Beaches and everything that they have to offer. In Carolina Beach you’ve got the boardwalk, restaurants, and local shops of all kinds. If you like adventures, the marina is also there where you can take an offshore fishing trip, diving excursion, or party boat out for a sunset sail. Camping more your thing? Bring 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 nearby, hosting a weekly Farmer’s Market every Saturday, FIREWORKS every Thursday, and outdoor summer movies on Sunday’s (on a large inflatable screen in the middle of the lake!). We welcome you to sit back, relax and enjoy yourselves because that's exactly what the beach is for! * (due to Covid, please be prepared for periodic deviations from our usually scheduled events).

"Candlewood Sands" beach cottage suite 1, the two story building that sits just behind suite #2 walks you up one stilted flight and opens up to a lower floor consisting of two comfortable bedrooms, one with a Full and one with a Queen bed while sharing one full bathroom off the main hallway. A stairway off the main cottage entrance brings you up another floor consisting of a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and a private balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The kitchen is stocked with all of the basic cooking and dining utensils one should expect (plates, bowls, cups, silverware, etc.). In addition, there is a microwave, toaster, coffer maker and blender ready to help make yourself at home. 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 provide personal family items for guests. 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 guests arrive to ensure an optimally hygienic space.

The living room boasts a large double french door where you can watch the pelicans roost and waves crash without moving an inch. A smart TV and WIFI connection will ensure you stay briefly connected with the outside world before heading back to hunt for the perfect shell. Bring a Fire Stick, Apple TV, Laptop w/ HDMI cable or other such casting device if looking to ensure all of the tech comforts from home are available during your stay!

The unit's ONE QUEEN and ONE FULL bed consists of either a plush luxury mattress or a new encased 8” memory foam/cooling gel composition mattress because we want all of our guests to be comfortable when it comes time to recharge. For stays less than 7 nights where linens are not included, you can bring them from home with you, buy them locally, or rent them (refer to Seaside Linens & Rentals).

The outdoor shower is located at the rear of the property to help get that sand off of those toes!

Where you’ll be

Carolina Beach, North Carolina, United States

The building itself as aforementioned has its own private beach access that is shared between the two suites on the property. "Candlewood" is a long walk or short drive from downtown Carolina Beach with its shops, activities and dining and is equidistant to the smaller, but just as charming Downtown Kure Beach with its fishing pier and aquarium. There are fireworks during the summer every Thursday night, Movies at the lake each Sunday night, and local fairs around the lake each Saturday morning (refer to carolinabeach.org for additional info!).

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 relaxing and less “adventure” is your speed? Our own local Brewery (Good Hops) along with a round of Frisbee golf may be what the doctor ordered!
