About this listing

Located a short walk from the beach, these modern container homes offer everything a couple or small family could want for a fun surf trip or beach vacation.
The homes feature modern and well-equipped interior spaces situated in a peaceful and private setting.

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.

This is a really great option when staying in the area. The space was unique and modern with plenty of room and amenities for everything we needed. Shelly was easy to communicate with and the container was very clean. The beach was in easy walking distance. We would definitely stay there again!

This is such a fun, unique place to stay! It had everything we needed. It was also bigger than we expected. We managed to fit my husband and I plus our two little children without feeling crowded. I absolutely recommend staying here!

We loved our stay! This location is steps from the beach and minimalist in design. Pack light!

We loved staying at this spot! It was the best part of our trip (maybe because it was kind of cold and stormy while there) but we very much enjoyed laying on the porch chairs and reading, and the quiet rest the space provided. Very clean, simple and fun!

This place is awesome - just like it is described. We had a great stay at the container home - very comfortable, clean, and just plain cool. It's also much closer to the beach than I expected

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!
