This is the first time I haven't stayed in a big hotel with 20 floors and now that I have stayed here, I can't imagine why I didn't do this sooner! Condo was great and a few steps and you're on the beach. Very centrally located. I did my morning walks to the pier and boardwalk. Richard is absolutely one of the people to deal with. Very easy going and just a great person that actually wants you to enjoy his condo. Not about the money which is hard to find these days! The only negative is I wish we had more time to enjoy this condo and the peaceful beach...Cant wait to come back. Thanks for an amazing stay Richard! Will definitely be contacting you for our next vacation!
Very clean and comfortable. Richard the owner vwey nice keeps you informed and booking through him was so easy. My family and I had a great time and will definitely be returning we stayed in A1 condo. Easy parking and easy access to the beach.
My mother and I stayed at Coral Surf E-1 and rented from Richard Trubia. He was a wonderful host, very easy to work with. Responded to quickly to email, phone and text within 24 hours but usually within 2 hours.
The Condo was 2 bedrooms (one room had a queen size bed and the other 2 twin beds), 2 full baths, a kitchen, dining area and living room (with a sleeper sofa). A balcony facing the ocean and a small pool. Mr Trubia provided all linens, towels, paper products, dish liquid, dishwasher and tablets. There is a washer and dryer on site. The condo was clean and well maintained. Parking was great and some units have shaded parking, this unit was not in the shaded parking area but still had off street parking for two small vehicles.
The beach is clean, and not crowded. Everyone was so friendly, everywhere you went people were so helpful and nice. Carolina Beach has a small boardwalk with shops and food. Traffic is not heavy and there was plenty of parking everywhere we went. Wilmington is only a 1/2 hour drive away and there is a ton of things to do there.
I will definitely rent from Mr Trubia again and Carolina Beach is my new favorite vacation destination.
First of all....Richard is THE BEST! We appreciate him so much. I am so glad we got to meet him and can call him a friend now. The condo location was perfect for us. The beach was right out our back door and it's close enough to town that it's not far to travel if you need something. The area has so much to do but it's a quiet getaway at the same time. We cooked some of our meals and everything was provided as far as cooking utensils and such. A washer and dryer were a nice extra so we could keep the towels washed. The only complaint was a little noise upstairs but that was something Richard was made aware of and handled wonderful. We look so forward to coming back again soon! Definitely a little home away from home.
My condo was A1 and boy was it gorgeous! Beautiful seaside oceanfront view along with ability to walk out the back door to the beach! And it was so close to the Tiki Pier where you could go fishing or go to the restaurant/bar and have lunch at the Ocean Grill. The furniture was very comfortable and wonderfully decorated. Parking space is huge can fit 3 cars. Not many steps up at all and I'm handicapped, no problem. You can walk to town, walk to the lake, it's close to Kure Beach where there is an aquarium, a fishing pier, a huge gift shop, and then take your car on the Ferry to Southport which is a cute little town with tons to do. Wilmington is also close by and is filled with museums, theatres, malls, etc. I've been a snowbird for over 10 years now and this is by far the best rental I have had. Richard is just so so nice and I will try to rent from him again. You will not be disappointed if you rent here believe me. Book now because they go very fast! I do wish I was there now!

We met Richard by chance on our last trip down when we had rented somewhere else. After speaking with him, i was kicking myself for not renting from him. So when the opportunity arose to come back and stay at Coral Surf, we jumped on it. Richard was incredible to work with, especially when it came to the hurricane potentially causing us not to come. We stayed in unit C3. It had everything we needed, was clean and comfy and the view was spectacular. We cannot wait to come back. If you want to stay at a great place and rent from someone who goes out of their way to take care of you, rent a Coral Surf unit from Richard. You won't regret it.
