About

Octopus’s Garden is an updated three-floor duplex with 5 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths and an elevator. Two of the bedrooms are direct ocean front, but the other rooms all have ocean views through the 20 plus windows! Guests have a view all the way down Carolina Beach and can easily see Wrightsville from the oceanfront decks.

The owners take absolute pride in updating and maintaining the house. When purchased two years ago, the kitchen and baths were remodeled, new high-end beds were purchased for the two ocean-front masters, all mattresses and bedspreads were replaced, and new living room furniture was purchased and configured to allow more space for our guests. The home has been tastefully decorated with wonderful and unique octopus’ décor. In 2022, the upgrades continued by adding a beautiful hand-designed outdoor Octopus’s Garden bar, the remaining king beds were replaced with high-end beds, and additional artwork was added. For 2023, the major project will be to replace all rugs and install hardwood floors. If you’ve stayed at Octopus’s Garden in the past, hopefully you’ve enjoyed the yearly updates. If you’ve never stayed at Octopus’s Garden, you are in for a treat!

The first floor has three spacious bedrooms, A oceanfront king room with a slider out to the deck. A second king room with ocean views, and the third with a twin over a full-size bunk bed with a twin trundle bed. There is a large bathroom and laundry closet with a Samsung washer/dryer.

The second floor is open and spacious to allow for large family gatherings. It has breathtaking views from the many side windows and the double sliders which lead to a large deck. The living area has two sofas and a coffee table, as well as a decorative fireplace. The large, updated kitchen (including a beverage refrigerator that holds 140 cans!) is fully equipped with plates, bowls, glasses, pasta bowls, serving platters, mixing bowls, baking pans, a blender, toaster, BBQ kit, Cuisinart coffee center, crockpot, and a buffet warming tray. The two kitchen islands comfortably seat 6 people and the dining room table seats 8.

The third floor has two master suites with king beds and oceanfront/views. The oceanfront bedroom has sliders out to the deck with two chairs and a chaise lounge and an attached bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a large window facing the ocean! The other master has incredible views of the ocean as well as west-facing views of Carolina Beach, offering beautiful sunset colors. The bathroom has been completely renovated with subway tiles, a tile floor and vanity.

If you need more outdoor space beyond the large decks, then the covered bar/grilling area is waiting for you! Enjoy some beverages at the hand-designed Octopus’s Garden bar with outdoor lighting, or hang out on the brick patio with Adirondack chairs and a gas barbecue. There is also a toy chest filled with kids’ buckets and shovels, an outside shower, and direct beach access from the private walkway. The unit also includes beach chairs and towels for 12 as well as coolers and bocce! We allow up to 4 cars.

Once you park your car, you can leave it there as the duplex sits on a one-way street that is more like a pedestrian walkway, and convenient to almost anything in town! It's an easy walk to the Carolina Beach boardwalk to the North and the Tiki Bar to the South, as well as Carolina Beach Lake, the Greenway, Veggie Wagon, Britts Donuts, restaurants, and bars, including locals’ and tourists’ favorite, the Fat Pelican, voted one of the top 25 dive bars in the country!

You’ll like to be in an Octopus’s Garden!

Octopus Garden is beautiful and well maintained. But beyond those pleasures, there are unexpected supplies like TP, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, soap for washing dishes, handsoap near every sink (kitchen and bathroom), more dishes than we needed, well stocked kitchen. We are so grateful!

We just spent a few glorious, relaxing days at the OG. This home is the most well appointed rental property that I have ever stayed in. The whimsical Octopus themed decor is delightful. The location is perfect, the views from the decks are breathtaking, we loved watching the sun rise every morning. This home is very well managed, it is spotless with every attention to detail covered. We will definitely return and spread the word about this magical Octopus’s Garden by the sea!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was stocked with every essential you could think of. Never seen that before in a rental. Loved the Octopus decorations...over the top. Love the convenient location to shops and restaurants. Houses really packed in and tight in this area. Beach wasn’t crowded. It was like having our own private beach. Would definitely rent this house again.

This house met every expectation. It was exactly as described. Very clean and spacious for 2 families. The location was outstanding. The only downside was the handicapped accessibility to the beach. The porch/walkway leading to the beach had 2-3 sets of steps, so we mainly sat on the porch with our son in his wheelchair, which was still plenty perfect for him. Overall, this was a wonderful weekend away that was much needed.

We had a wonderful stay for our family vacation. The home was beautiful and clean and we really loved all the Octopus decor! We had everything that we needed for our week stay. The location was perfect...close enough to walk or bike to the many restaurants, businesses and the boardwalk. The views were fabulous! The management company was easy to work with and the process was seamless. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

Everything was delightful. From breathtaking sunrises to peaceful dinners on the balcony. They have thought of everything necessary for a seamless stay. We loved the elevator for our three senior guests.
We had a little hiccup understanding the elevator when we arrived. I called the contact number and they answered on first ring and walked me through the steps. Very patient and kind.
Email Communication leading up to the trip was great.
We rented a beach wheelchair from the parks and rev dept, at no cost, for our 93 yr old guest and she had the time of her life.
Everything was spotless, all necessary cooking, eating and drinking tools were provided. Down to flashlights for nighttime beach walks to hunt for crabs.
Can’t wait to go back next year!

Beautiful place - clean and well-maintained! Access to beach was so easy and we appreciated the beach chairs. Could have used two more dish towels in the kitchen. We definitely recommend the place and hope to return next summer. We enjoyed our morning trip to South Port and afternoon Kayak adventure to Shark Tooth Island!

Everything was wonderful. From booking to leaving, communication was perfect and seamless. The house had everything that we needed to enjoy our week stay. The elevator was wonderful to have, but the stairs were fun too! The amenities provided were wonderful as well. Not having to purchase and carry around beach equipment was a godsend. This property is simply amazing.

When we booked this rental for a short spring break stay there were no photos of it yet but we were told by A1 that it was going to be beautiful and decided to trust them ( We have stayed at their properties before and know they have high standards). We are so glad we did! Octopus Garden is a lovely rental. It is spacious, super clean, well equipped, and has the most lovely views. The porches are great, we spent a lot of time just sitting staring at the ocean. The patch of beach in front of the property stayed relatively empty, especially compared to areas farther up the beach which were crowded. It made it easy to stay socially distant while enjoying the beach. We were very impressed with this location and would consider returning someday!
