Description

As of 10/16/2023 we were made aware that the beach access directly across the street, Sea Oats Access, and the access north of the property, Salt Marsh, are currently closed due to beach erosion. The closest beach access is the Sand Fiddler Access which is approximately a block south of the property.

"Dolphin Watch" is a six-bedroom, three-bath home with a reverse floor plan that has gorgeous ocean views, natural light, and room for the whole family, making it the perfect vacation spot! Located on the North end of Carolina Beach, your family is within walking distance of the North End Fishing Pier, the High Tide Lounge, and Freeman Park.

The primary bedroom is located on the first floor. With a King size bed, two closets, a beautiful en suite with double vanities and a garden tub, this room is a real retreat. A large deck across the front of the home is shared between the primary and the second bedroom. The second bedroom has a Queen bed and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom that connects to the third bedroom. The third bedroom has a Queen bed and features a private, stand-up deck perfect for enjoying the salt air. Bedroom four is also on this level and has a day bed with a trundle. The laundry area with stackable washer and dryer is located on this floor.

The top floor has two more bedrooms and the main living area. The fifth bedroom has a Queen bed. The sixth bedroom has a Queen, a bathroom that is also accessible from the hall, and a private, stand-up deck. The main living area boasts a large, open floor plan with the dining area and kitchen. East-facing windows and sliding glass doors to the deck create a sunny, cheery atmosphere. Enjoy the sunrise over the ocean while you drink your morning coffee or have breakfast on the deck where you can easily "Dolphin Watch" for hours! The kitchen has all the appliances you will need to prepare your favorite meals: oven, electric range, microwave, and double-door fridge with freezer drawer. The dining table has seating for eight, and the island has three bar stools - eat in or order takeout from one of the island’s many fantastic restaurants!

The beach access directly across the street gives a front row seat to a beautiful ocean scene with rock formations. The Town of Carolina Beach will be re-opening this access after its yearly maintenance due to erosion. Until then, it’s just a short walk to the access one block over where you can set up all day! A wagon is supplied with the home for pulling your beach toys, towels, and coolers.

Don’t miss out on this home- you’ll want to come back any time of year! It is dog-friendly, so bring your best friend with you.

Great home with lots of light and space. It was a great space and close to the beachfront.

We came for a family wedding and enjoyed the area the beach was awesome directly across the street. The house was nice but really needs a good cleaning , some sheets had stains on them and the trundle didn’t have one at all, all the TV’s need new batteries and some instructions use Spectrum, it took awhile to find that out, the garbage was packed full when we got there and I read our our garbage day was Tuesday but it’s not it’s Monday that’s probably why the people before us missed it. I got it out in time. The balcony were great but the furniture was dirty also the couches inside need to be cleaned. Also when you fly in you would hope the house supplied beach chairs but nothing just a bunch of junk toys thrown in garage area. Overall it was fine and we enjoyed ourselves selves. Thank you

Other than a few missing amenities -- a working dishwasher and at least one hairdryer (which I assume will be addressed), it was a great place for seven friends who needed five 'adult' rooms. Loved the location across from the beach and proximity to the wonderful Tiki Bar on the peer. I did find it a bit strange that you had to make your own bed.

Manager's Response

Linda, Thank you for your feedback. The dishwasher issue has been addressed and is properly working. We do not provide hair dryers in our units. The location is perfect and the tiki bar is such a fun place! Per your signed rental agreement, bedmaking was suspended for 2022, hopefully we will reinstate this service in 2023!

Location was good, although we had to hurtle over builders to get

Dishwasher wasn’t working. With 10 people in the house eating at home this was a HUGE inconvenience. When maintenance came out he indicated that it’s been acting g up and thought they fixed it. Guess Not!

Manager's Response

Lynda, We are aware that there was an issue with the dishwasher that could not be fixed during your stay and I completely understand how frustrating this can be. We are truly sorry and regret this negatively impacted your overall experience at this lovely home.
We are grateful that you reached out to us, and we have already worked with the homeowner to address the issues with the dishwasher. We did issues you a refund of $100 from the owner due to the inconveniences you encountered.

Great location with beach access just across the street and great views. Cute decor and comfortable beds and furniture. Lots of space and a crib which was great. It wasn’t very clean though. Our feet were black within minutes of walking in there. There was a baby toy on the living room floor so it couldn’t have been swept. There was also someone else’s shirt in the closet. The day bed and crib mattress pads were stained and covered in sand. We had to go buy a swiffer and clean ourselves. The dishes were also dirty and had to be washed before use. We had a safety issue of the doors to both balconies not locking and our toddlers being able to get out. The maintenance request was answered promptly but they couldn’t fix the issue. The top balcony also gets extremely hot when the sun is on it and it burnt a few feet in our family. Some rugs or a warning sign would be helpful. Overall, I’d stay again and hope it’s cleaner and the safety issues addressed.

Manager's Response

Whitney, Thank you for your feedback! We are glad you enjoyed the views and decor in the property. We appreciate you alerting us regarding the balcony doors so that we can look into this further. Please note in the future if you do have any issues with the cleanliness of the property, we have staff available 24/7 to assist with issues, so we would have been happy to send a cleaner to reclean the property. We hope you enjoyed your stay!

My family enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin Watch. The house was in a great location with a great views of the ocean. The amenities were very accommodating and we had everything we needed during our stay. We would definitely stay here again. If I had one recommendation it would be to have the outside of the house pressure washed and the grounds area better maintained.

Manager's Response

Great to hear you enjoyed Dolphin Watch while visiting paradise! Thank you for your feedback concerning the exterior of the property. We have taken note and will check our your concerns. Thanks so much for choosing us for your beach vacation needs!

This is tough to review. We booked this house in March for July in 2021 (last minute). Because we were late in booking, there weren't a lot of choices. We needed at least 6 BRs (which this house has). We also wanted close to the beach. The description on Airbnb (the owner has Bryant manage their Airbnb) is that there is "beach access across the street". This is NOT the case because the 2 closest accesses across the street are closed because "Beach Erosion in Progress" (signs at the entrance). There is a rock wall at the ocean for about 1/2 mile. Need to walk 7 blocks for any significant beach area.

Manager's Response

Diana - Dolphin watch is a beautiful second row beach front property that was recently updated with new flooring, furniture, and kitchen appliances. The large open kitchen, dining room, and living room are located on the top floor. This large open space allows families to relax together and watch tv, eat meals, or just bond. The large furnished ocean view balcony that leads right out the sliders from the living room allow the bonding to migrate outside were you can listen to the waves crash and smell the salt air. The beach access located right across the street from this property is closed temporarily due to beach erosion. If you walk out of the driveway of this property and turn left, about 1 block you will find beach access with quite a bit of space as this is the area that allows vehicles to drive on and park to enjoy the beach. Sounds like the area you are speaking of is the closed off section due to erosion. That all being said, we hope you enjoyed the beautiful beach house. When planning your next vacation, browse our inventory as we do have many other options that may be better suited for your vacation. Thank you for choosing Dolphin Watch to host your beach retreat!

Manager's Response

Michael - thrilled to hear you enjoyed this massive beach house! This newly update house offers more space than you know what to do with! The top floor offers an open floor plan with the living/ dining/ and kitchen on the ocean side allowing you cook meals, real on the couch, or sit at the dining table while enjoying a beautiful view of the beach. The top floor also offers a covered furnished deck, sit back and relax and listen to the waves crash and seagulls fly by. Thank you for allowing Dolphin Watch to host your beach vacation! Looking forward to hosting the next one!

Spacious house, easy for everyone to gather on the top floor, amazing porch with ocean view, bonus of live music at the North End Pier on the weekend. Only downside is inconvenient beach access, short walk to public beach access but not able to set up in front of the house.

Manager's Response

Alecia - Happy to hear Patterson Place made for great beach vacation! The new owners of this single family house have recently remodeled the entire property with new floors, kitchen appliances, and furniture. The top floor offers a large open living room, dining room, kitchen, and large covered furnished ocean view deck. Sit back with your large family and listen to the waves crash from just across the street. Thank you for allowing Patterson Place to host your family vacation! Looking forward to the next one!

Almost every room had an ocean view, and the huge deck up top was incredible to rest on and stare at the waves all day.

Ross - Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your beach retreat at Patterson Place! With the ocean just across the street, views from this property are breath taking! Not only does this property offer beautiful views, and a large ocean side deck off the living/ dining room on the top floor. The new owners have remodeled the interior making the property feel much brighter and spacious while enjoying all the comforts of home in paradise. Thank you for allowing Patterson Place to host your beach vacation! Come back soon!
