The space

The Conchs are two shipping container houses that were thoughtfully constructed in 2015-16 in an effort to create unique but low profile vacation rentals for visitors to Carolina Beach, NC. The containers are located on adjoining lots so that they can be rented independently or together for a larger group. The siting of the units on the lots ensures plenty privacy and lots of space to spread out. If the container is not available for your dates see the listing for Modern Beach Container Home #1.
The architecturally engineered space measures 320 square feet and is comfortable inside and out. The interiors offer all the amenities you need plus some interesting details such as organic linens, Casper mattresses, spacious bathrooms, Paperstone countertops, and original mahogany hardwood floors.
Large teak outdoor showers are the best! (there is a spacious indoor shower) Canopies of hardwood trees provide shade so you can enjoy the ample decks and yard.
There is a public beach access at the end of the street which offers an easy beach entrance and parking spaces.

We picked Shelly's container for a unique place for my parents to stay when in town. They loved it!

We loved Shelly's place! Can't think of a thing I would change - the space was beautifully designed, compact and minimal, but had everything we needed. Plates, cups, two burners and pans if you felt like cooking, a good coffee maker, tv and a chic-but-comfy little sofa, great bed with cute bedding, and two patios to trade your time on, depending on whether you wanted sun or shade. What more could one need? The space was clean and well-organized, and the outdoor deck shower helped us keep the sand at bay indoors. Just a skip from the beach, it was also a convenient stroll down to the charming little tiki bar on the little beach pier for dinner - or for Mai Tais and French fries. Shelly was a gracious host - easy to communicate with, and quick to respond. We brought a little cooler with us, so we could have some ice on hand, and some citronella lanterns we bought came in handy for the patio (so we could enjoy a drink outdoors at dusk without being harassed by those pesky NC mosquitos.) Overall, we highly recommend this location if you are headed to Carolina Beach!

If you want a cute little place to relax, stream some evening tv, easy walking distance to the beach, easy driving to the state park where you can bring dogs, comfortable bed, excellent outdoor shower, and killer decks for lounging, look no further. The container is really nicely done, quiet area, and an awesome host. We hope to come back.
