Calabash NC Real Estate

If you want to escape the noise and traffic of the city and find some quiet little place full of charm, the picturesque fishing village of Calabash, North Carolina, is the ideal community. On the border between North and South Carolina, Calabash is adjacent to Little River where the Calabash River merges with Little River’s waterway. A delight to avid boaters and fishermen you can access the ocean with your own boat or take a charter boat out for some deep-sea fishing. Sight-seeing tours are also available during the summer.

Since the 1930’s the area has been known for incredible seafood.  People come from all over North Carolina to sample tasty treats like local oysters,  flounder fried in a light cornbread batter, and popcorn shrimp. Restaurants like The Seafood Hut, Ella’s Beck’s and Coleman’s have been serving extraordinary seafood for decades. “Goodnight, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are,” was the signature tagline used by renown comic, Jimmy Durante. It is widely believed that Lucy Coleman was, “Mrs. Calabash” and you will find a signed photo of the comedian on the wall at the Seafood Hut to commemorate the visit where it all began.
The incorporated “town” of Carolina Shores lies like an island of land with its’ own rules, trash collection, sewer, etc., encompassed by Calabash. Like Calabash, there is a variety of homes ranging from budget-friendly manufactured homes to expensive luxury homes. Popular with retirees, Carolina Shores offers a country club with a beautiful golf course. The community features single-family homes and a sizable condo complex. The condo units are reasonably priced and are ideal as vacation rental properties.

Most homes, new and old, in Calabash are in an urban setting near Highway 179 and flanking Sunset Beach with a few along the waterfront and close to the restaurants. A diverse seaside town, you will find affordable homes and some very private luxury waterfront neighborhoods adjacent to Little River.  Big Landing is one of these lavish subdivisions.

Calabash offers a peaceful, small-town lifestyle. There is plenty to do. Glen Doroch, one of the finest golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area is only about a mile away. There are businesses, quaint boutiques, and stores to shop. Charter fishing boats will take out to fish or you can buy amazing fish fresh from the catch.  Just a few miles down the road  The Grand Strand stretches out with an endless supply of restaurants, stores, and entertainment.
If a “Mayberry” lifestyle in a coastal town,  with easy access to all the fun and excitement your heart desires, appeals to you,  this community is just what you are looking for.
