About Doug Welch

Kathy and I are just a couple of hard working, fun loving people who's lifelong dream is to live on the beach. We all enjoy hanging out at the beach as a family, swimming, laying out or biking up to the boardwalk. At the end of the day we'll sit out on the balcony, watching the waves crash or head out to one of the many fine dining establishments on the island. These are a few of our favorite things :)

Why Doug Welch chose Carolina Beach

We really look foward to watching the sun rise, hoping to spot some dolphins making their way up & down the coast. Just listening to the calming effect of the waves crashing and sea gulls in background, as we stare in awe of God's creation and collect our thoughts.

What makes this condo unique

Just feet from the beautiful beach. Take one of the two private walkways over the natural dunes to the beach equipped with showers to rinse off. Private ground level storage closet to keep beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and other beach toys...all available exclusively for our guests. Our deck overlooks one of the two pools so kids can swim below while mom and dad watch from above while sitting at the high table if you choose.

Situated on a beach famous for excellent surfing and paddle boarding and don't fret if you don't know how to do either as there are world renown teachers on the beach who can get you set up and hanging ten in no time.

For dining, the seafood doesn't get any fresher and if you enjoy a good ribeye steak, the Deck House, just down the street can't be beat...and then there's the nationally acclaimed, Britt's Donuts, just down on the boardwalk (a must!)

Plan a day trip just down the street to historic Fort Fisher Museum, a strategic stronghold during the civil war, and just next door is the Carolina Beach Aquarium, where the kids will enjoy seeing sharks, rays, sea turtles, jellies and more. Meet a rare albino alligator and touch a shark! Dive shows, feedings, outdoor play area and fossil hunt. Explore more in behind scenes tours and classes.

Go back in time and visit downtown Wilmington only 20 minutes away. Dine at one the many fine waterfront restaurants or cafe's, take a horse & carriage tour of downtown, tour the battleship museum, USS North Carolina, riverboat tours etc...

Enjoy free fireworks by the sea on the beach near the Carolina Beach Boardwalk at sunset every Thursday night during the summer months! The fireworks will begin at 9:00 pm and the gazebo entertainment begins at 6:30 pm. The fireworks and gazebo entertainment are free and open to all, weather permitting.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property! Very nice view of the ocean/beach from the corner balcony (roomy and plenty of seating) and an easy walk on a private boardwalk to the beach. Their beach locker is nicely stocked with three tommy bahama chairs and a couple others too, body boards, sand toys...great set up! The condo is nicely appointed, comfy beds and plenty of linens/towels. The kitchen is also well stocked and roomy. An FYI, If you are going to want to take drinks out to the pool or beach make sure you pack your own plastic glasses as all drinkware is glass except for a couple plastic wine glasses. Other than that, I'd think anyone will love this rental! Easy walk to the Tiki Bar restaurant right down the beach, and the burger place across the street from the condo is really good as well. We would definitely come back!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the condo for 3 months during the winter of 2018 really enjoyed our stay in Carolina Beach. Condo was clean except for the stove and oven, being self cleaning I assume it was a cleaners oversight. Would definitely recommend this condo to couples or small families.

Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. It was very beautiful. Loved the location and the storage locker was a big hit with the family. Very beautiful area for it being off season and a hurricane out in the ocean.

Owner's Response: Kathy & I agree with you! The view certainly is tonic for the soul, combined with the salt air, sound of the crashing waves and sun on the skin... stimulating all the senses. Hope to have you back soon!
