Just a 1/2 mile (.80km) from beautiful downtown Carolina Beach, and 1 mile (1.6 km) from the boardwalk and beach access, the Lighthouse Room is on the second floor in a private home. The Lighthouse Room is a sunny large room that sleeps up to 5 guests and has its own private bathroom. The sofa opens up to a queen bed and a roll-a-way bed is also available. Whether you are staying one night or several nights, the Lighthouse Room and Pool may just be the right place for you and your guests. When not at the beach, guests can relax in the heated salt-water pool (open Apr – Nov) set in a very private and quite fenced backyard surrounded by woods. The Lighthouse Room and Pool has everything you have come to expect from the best hotel chains.
No pets, kitchen privileges, or cooking in the room. Guests can use the microwave oven in the kitchen and the outdoor gas grill for cooking, and the poolside tables. Dinning in the privacy of your room is not a problem. A café table with chairs along with paper goods is included for that purpose. Enjoy the local cuisine of our many restaurants on Pleasure Island and in the Wilmington area. A second small bedroom with queen bed and mini refrigerator/freezer is available if you have more than 5 guests and need additional accommodations

Kathy and Rich are wonderful hosts. They're friendly, helpful, and very easy going. The Lighthouse Room was the best airbnb room we've ever stayed in. It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Kathy and Rich have thought of everything - from the information on local beaches and restaurants, to the pool towels, to the paper plates, utensils, and mini fridge. This is truly a better experience than an upscale hotel. The neighborhood is quiet and private. It was a weekend retreat we will always remember and someday we hope to stay there again.
The perfect room in the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood. We really enjoyed our stay with Rich and Kathy, who were very welcoming and hospitable! They were also very helpful by giving us plenty of advice and recommendations on what to do around Carolina Beach or Wilmington. They know what they are doing for their guests and they do it well. The description matches perfectly what the room has to offer. Plenty of space, very comfortable and luxurious!
Thank you very much
Rich and Kathy were gracious hosts. They helped us with restaurant suggestions and gave us guidance on things to do in the area when we asked. Their home and the room were exactly as they described them to be. The room was actually much larger than I expected, and it had everything we needed; the pool was also a nice bonus. You can't see the ocean/beach from their place, but it's easily within walking distance, maybe a 10 or 15 minute walk. We'll definitely look here first the next time we visit!
Very welcoming and nice couple with a wonderful home. Great location in a peaceful community. We would have stayed longer if we could have and plan on going back in soon.
The room was in great shape - very comfortable, and lots of room for us to hang out. We also really enjoyed the use of the pool! Rich and Kathy were very friendly and professional.
