Step Back in Time at This Stunning 1940's Beach Cottage.


Property Details

Updated: Oct 9, 2014
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

An absolutely charming beach bungalow, built in 1947, and decorated to feel as though you have stepped back in time. Sway on a hammock on the huge wrap-around front porch while the smell of confederate jasmine fills your senses. Lay in the day bed. Step out the front door where the blue water and white sands of Wrightsville Beach await.

The house offers two living spaces. Upstairs has 2 generous bedrooms and one bathroom along with a queen size convertible bed, sleeps 6. There is a separate and wonderfully cozy pied-a'-terre 1 BR apartment on the bottom floor, which features it's own private bathroom, kitchen and very lovely living room, with an additional convertible bed, which sleeps 4 people. The total occupancy of the house is 10. In addition there is an outdoor shower that can be enjoyed in the heat of the summer, or almost any time of the year.

Our home has a special, almost mystical quality. It has provided refuge for many a traveling soul, from monks and yogis, to our many friends from around the world. It is a humble and extremely comfortable sanctuary. Full of light, love, and all the charms of the Old South. You will leave feeling refreshed, renewed and full of gratitude.

Keywords: Charming, classic, bungalow. With additional pied-a'-terre and outdoor shower.

About the Owner

I have been in the advertising business for many years, working on the creative side. My wife teaches yoga and elementary school, and is currently very busy raising our daughter Sienna Sky. We wanted our home to feel like a sanctuary, full of light, wonder and calm. We both enjoy cooking, being outdoors, a healthy lifestyle and traveling.

Great Sisterhood Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Along with my 4 sisters, sister-in-law and aunt (ages ranging from 51 to nearly 71), we spent four wonderful nights at this cottage. It was such a great getaway, so relaxing and warm just like someone's home. We had a few minor glitches, but notified the owners and those things were addressed. Great accommodations, much better than any hotel, great privacy, quiet street and more! The jaunt to the beach was great too! The porches offered very relaxing time. We totally enjoyed the rear deck in the mornings, and when the weather didn't cooperate, we had a place we could still be outside. The owner's instructions were most helpful (add that you need to bring bath soap too). Nice to have sand chairs. Probably the only disappointment we had was the weather (a little on the cloudy and rainy side) and the fact you had to pay to go on the Johnny Mercer pier.....The location of the cottage is within walking distance to shops, and nice to have the bikes too so if you so desired, you could venture further. We didn't drive hardly at all. Thanks to the owners -- I would recommend this location for a getaway for those that want a very restful vacation. I think we picked a great time of year. I would definitely go back....

This is how I knew I had found the right place...when we walked into the home, my three college kids said "WOW! This is a dream come true!" We live in Pittsburgh but I'm from Wilmington. We visit Wrightsville Beach frequently and normally stay with family in Wilmington. Recently my father passed away and this was a getaway we all needed. When I saw the pictures of the home, I contacted Lorri right away. We had an unusual circumstance and she was very accommodating. For me, it was like stepping back in time to the 60's when all of the cottages looked this way...The pine paneling (my favorite), large windows, spacious kitchen (love the green), ceiling fans, wrap around porch, swings, fireplace and of course, just steps to the beach. My family also needed the modern updates that were provided; wifi, flat screen TV's and large kitchen appliances. I would describe the decor as vintage, cozy, worldly and downright hip! I loved the unique lighting in the kitchen area too. Sometimes things are perfect ...and this home was:) Thank you for sharing.

Wedding Vacation

We were so excited to arrive at the property and found that the listing online was very accurate and the photos reflected the appearance and amenities to a tee. What a charming and comfortable house! The property was clean and maintained. I would recommend this property to friends and family without a doubt! It was a perfect location for us because our daughter got married on the beach and had her reception at the Holiday Inn Resort right down the road. Perfect!

We stayed here for a week and it was so lovely ! The house is very open and has great air flow. I loved the kitchen ! It was very well stocked . The decor reminded me a bit of the Pottery Barn, with all the original wood floors. We did have a problem with the wi-if, we called Lori and she had it taken care of immediately . Very nice and professional :) Front porch was a place to escape to at the end of the night, along with a glass of wine. My husband would take the hammock and I would take the wooden swing. Total bliss :))))) The beach is a minute walk to the sand. We could literally be on the beach and walk to the house and back to the beach in 5 minutes or less. We are for sure coming back to this Beauty ! Don't forget to shower in the outdoor shower ! Great experience. It made me think of " Gilligan Island " So much fun :)

Wonderful place to stay for vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was an great home with an amazing location. The beach really is just steps away. The kitchen is well stocked, there were many toys for the children, there were highchairs and a pack and play. We were all impressed at how well equipped the house was. The porch swing is a great place to sit and read a book or relax peacefully. We can not wait to return.

From the Owner

Just over the old drawbridge awaits this beach paradise. 8 miles of windswept dunes, blue waters, dolphins and all that nature has to offer. Wrightsville Beach is a throwback beach community, where people still ride bikes, eat ice cream, walk the beach and come to enjoy the sun and surf. It is equally charming in the off season, with a temperate climate. It offers a nice chance to get away from the crowds, kayak, walk the beach, read and relax. It is a very special place.

From the Owner

Start your day with a dip in the ocean, just steps away from the front door. Relax on the huge porch, swing in the hammock, and watch the beachcombers pass by. Enjoy the outdoor shower and smells of the ocean breeze. This is a place where you can leave all your worries behind.
