Especially Passionate About
Neapolitan Pizza

Neapolitan Pizza

Fred & Tricia are passionate about Neapolitan pizza and we have traveled to many areas both in and out of the country in search of the perfect pizza (Antico in Atlanta is our favorite so far). We now have a dedicated "Egg" grill for making our own (we can get the grill to >900 degrees and the pie cooks in 2 minutes). We make our own dough, sauce and at times mozzarella (but prefer Buffalo Mozzarella), we grow our own basil and have peppers imported from Italy.

Irene from Chicago said

A most wonderful retreat by the ocean. The place is impeccably clean and offers a great view of channel. It is just a short walk to the wonderful beach. To top it all, it is very close to Wilmington that is a charming laid back southern city with great restaurants and cultural institutions.We could not be happier there.

What we said about Irene's house:

Great spacious loft style home with terrific location. Walk to many attractions, restaurants or take the easy, user friendly, public transportation system which is only 1.5 blocks away. The ideal location to explore all of Chicago!

We had the pleasure of spending a few days in Carolina Beach this past week. I could feel the stress leave me as I sat on the back deck looking at the marina, steps away. And having the beach a few steps away in the other direction gave us the best of both worlds. But the effort that Tricia and Fred took to make our exchange successful was what was the icing on the cake. We literally had to bring nothing but our bathing suits and clothes. They took care of every detail, from sunscreen to great cooking utensils, and even a brand new toothbrush should we need it! If you are looking for an upscale beach home in a charming beach community, this is it!

What we said about Debi's house:

This is a terrific condo and building, Debi & Bruce are great hosts. Spacious, well appointed, clean condo in a building with great amenities (pool, billiards, fitness center, movie theater, friendly concierge). Walking distance to movie theater, restaurants and shopping. A short drive to some great sites in Atlanta - don't miss pizza at Antico, a drink at Prohibition (if you know the code to get in) and some of the best Korean food at So Dong Kong on Buford Highway. The DeKalb international farmers market and the Botanical Gardens were both great day trips as well. A great exchange!

I had a very positive experience at this exchange. Sitting on the back deck and looking out at the sailboats, I felt as though I was in Nantucket. The home is beautifully decorated, spotless, close to the beach and a nice walk to town. Even a picky person would have a hard time not thoroughly enjoying themselves at the Carolina Beach house. PS: The mattress in the master is superb.

Idalia from Atlanta said

This is a lovely beach place, beautifully appointed, and just steps from Carolina beach. The beds are super comfortable, and the whole place is super clear. There is a dock right off the back of the condo, where you can go fishing or crabbing. There are tons of activities to do, from deep see fishing, kayaking, boating, bike riding, or simply taking sunset beach walks. Tricia and Fred are super friendly, and the communication was excellent. Close by, the town of Wilmington is a lovely historic town, with old Spanish moss covered trees, and southern mansions. There are also some delicious restaurants to try. I highly recommend this unit for exchange.

Jim and Kathleen from Asheville said

Carolina Beach is a great destination for family or couples. The beach is spectacular and the town is sweet. Terrific seafood restaurants are everywhere. There are also plenty of day-trip getaways to other beach towns, Wilmington, scenic drives and numerous historic sites. Tricia and Fred's lovely beach house is the perfect location to access all these great activities, and of course, if you choose, get total relaxation on the beautiful beach. These folks are terrific hosts and make sure the house is outfitted with every possible necessity to make this a real home away from home experience. The place is spacious and light-filled, some rooms open to a beautiful canal view and the ocean is a short walk-away. We truly enjoyed this exchange opportunity and hope to revisit.

Tricia & Fred
What we said about Jim and Kathleen's house:

Jim & Kathleen's home is perfect for an Asheville getaway! The home is charming, bright and clean. The view from the breakfast area in the kitchen is wonderful! The neighborhood is lovely and a short walk (about 10-15 min) to downtown (only a 5 min drive but the walk through the neighborhoods is nice). The immediate neighborhood has some great spots to eat (Homegrown & Dough) as well as places to grab a beer (Asheville growler and Asheville Brewing com) - all withing a 5 minute walk. Jim & Kathleen were very easy to work with on the exchange and we hope to more trades in the (near) future! Thanks for a great vacation!
