********************************************************************************

2014 Summer Renter Wrote: “Perfect in EVERY way! ” We honestly can't say enough about our vacation house at Wrightsville beach this year. We rented both the house and adjoining apartment for our family of 7 and it was more than enough space. From the moment we walked through the door we were impressed!

Unbelievably spacious (way more than the photos show), spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and completely well stocked. Seriously the only thing you will need to bring is towels.

Things we loved-- the quality of the furniture was like being at home and not at a rental property, all the books to read, the extra little toiletries placed throughout the house in case you forgot something, the washer and dryer were definitely not like any other in a rental house, the pool table, the kitchen had everything I needed, beach chairs, rocking chairs outside for morning coffee-- I could go on and on. See you next year!

********************************************************************************

SUMMARY: Beautifully furnished, comfortable, clean, and very well-equipped beach house with 3 bedrooms & 2 full baths. Quick 3-minute walk to the beach; 30-second walk to Banks Channel! (Sleeps 6.)

Need more space or more privacy? Have a larger group? Add optional 1-bedroom, 1-bath apartment with LR/DR, full kitchen, and pool table. (Sleeps 2.) No steps, so ideal for grandparents!

********************************************************************************

Our home is located on the quiet south end of Wrightsville Beach Island just 200 yards (260 steps) from the beach and less than 100 yards from Banks Channel. We fondly refer to it as our 'Coastal Karma.'

Open the door and you'll be welcomed with bright sunshine, beautiful water views, spacious living areas, and new furnishings throughout. The kitchen is very large and fully stocked with everything you could need (dishes, glassware, microwave, coffeemaker, pots and pans, utensils, serving dishes, spices, dishwasher soap, small coolers, etc.). We also supply toilet paper, paper towels, basic cleaning supplies, extension cords, irons, hair dryers in every bathroom, puzzles and games, card table, and so much more.

Sit comfortably in the rocking chairs on the porch and watch the boats, water skiers, paddle boarders, and others go by on Banks Channel. Or, sit inside on the aqua-colored leather living room furniture and look straight out the large picture window to see it all. Enjoy the 46-inch HD television while others sit nearby in the dining room to eat, talk, play games, and more.

The private master king bedroom (plush, pillow-top mattress) and bath are lovely as you can see from the pictures. It has new beach furniture, a 32-inch LCD TV, a large closet with lots of hangars, and a great cross-breeze for refreshing spring and fall evenings. Walk into your private bathroom and enjoy!

The queen bedroom is also lovely with new furnishings, large closet, and 32-inch LCD TV. The third bedroom has two twin beds and another large closet, and is comfortable for both kids and adults.

Both bedrooms are just a few short steps to the second full bath with new shower, vanity, and flooring. The laundry area is in this large bathroom where you'll find a full-size washer, full-size dryer, and lots of towel racks and hooks.

Note that ALL bedrooms have new sheets, blankets, pillows, and bedspreads. Just be sure to bring your own bath towels and beach towels! Everything else is provided.

The house has central AC and heat, so you're sure to be comfortable no matter the weather.

To enjoy the outside of our home, use the front door or the sliding glass door. Both take you to large decks, great for watching the water, boats, people, and 'life' on the south end of Wrightsville Beach. Be sure to walk up to the widow's porch for a truly magnificent view!

Another extra is covered parking for 4 vehicles! That's really important in WB because of the strict non-parking on side street ordinances. In the parking area, you'll find some 'comfortably used' beach chairs, a skim board, and a boogie board.

This rental is ideal for everyone: Families with Young Children & Teens, Beach Getaways, Romantic Getaways, Girls' Getaways, Boys' Fishing Trips, Sightseeing Trips, Age 55+, and Great Vacations!

NEED MORE SPACE?

Coastal Karma has a 1-bedroom, 1-bath apartment with LR/DR (46' HDTV), 7' slate pool table, and full kitchen with private entrance on the ground floor. No steps! The apartment can be rented in addition to the main house if you'd like more space and/or to accommodate more people. Apartment is wheelchair accessible.

This apartment has just been totally renovated with new tile, new carpet, new paint, new furnishings, new dishes and kitchen wares, new bed, new linens ... new just about everything!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a tennis tournament in Wilmington and could not have been more pleased with it. Very comfortable with all the amenities we could have wanted. Location was ideal to the tournament sites as well as some great dining options and it was nice and quiet. The owner was wonderful to work with and we look forward to returning for the same tournament next year. Thanks!

A relaxing stay at Wrightsville Beach!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this beach house before, and plan on returning again and again! Wendy is the best!! She has everything you'd need, just like home! Great location - easy walk to beach or to our favorite restaurant, The Oceanic. House is very comfortable and could accommodate my family. We took advantage of the 1st floor apt (for my daughter, son-in-law, and new baby). The guys truly enjoyed the pool table downstairs! Thanks Wendy! Until next time!! :)

Great Stay with Friends at Wrightsville Beach!

  • 5 of 5
I recently came back to Wrightsville Beach for a visit and reunion weekend with a group of friends from college. We absolutely LOVED this house. It was a great location, lots of space and an incredible wrap around porch. We were in heaven and would definitely stay here again. The house is decorated beautifully and has everything you could need for your vacation. The owner was easy to work with, very responsive and helpful.

Wendy, thanks for a great stay! We can't wait to come back again.

Perfect time of year and perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter was getting married and we traveled from Pennsylvania. It was the first time we had rented a house for a vacation. The house, itself, was homey and very family friendly. Wrightsville Beach was peaceful. I enjoyed the slower pace and the evenings were quiet. I loved the location, right between the ocean and the sound. Very accessible to both. We visited the Aquarium and my husband, his friend and our 13 year old son fished on a charter boat one morning and they fished from the shore at the south end of the beach with success. We very much enjoyed the house and the location and would like to visit again; the same time of year.

great family vacation site!

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion at Coastal Karma and it was the perfect site. We had 4 adults and 2 children upstairs and my daughter and her young family (2 in cribs) stayed in the downstairs apt. That gave them more autonomy in getting the kids down early and keeping them downstairs when they woke up earlier than the others (the baby monitors reach upstairs so they could join us). We have other family in the area so it was a great spot for getting together for meals and visiting. The owners were immediately responsive to the few requests we had. It was a pleasure dealing with them. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to our local family for any time they have extra company.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your patience, Jean, as we fixed the minor electrical problem. As we tell all of our renters, if anything is wrong, we'll make it right ... immediately!

Delighted everyone had such a great time and can't wait to welcome you back.

Perfect in EVERY way!

  • 5 of 5
We honestly can't say enough about our vacation house at Wrightsville beach this year. We rented both the top house and bottom apartment for our family of 7 and it was more than enough space. From the moment we walked through the door we were impressed!

Unbelievably spacious (way more than the photos show), spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and completely well stocked. Seriously the only thing you will need to bring is towels.

And although his house isn't oceanfront, it's about a minute further walk than if it were oceanfront.

Thanks for renting to us. We will see you next year!!

Location

From the Owner

We've vacationed in Wrightsville Beach for more than 10 years. We've visited other beaches in NC and SC, but none compare to the non-commercial, family-focused, and uncrowded south end of Wrightsville Beach. If you're looking for a boardwalk with rides, throngs of people, and traffic, Wrightsville Beach is NOT the place you want to be! When we visit, no matter the time of year, we enjoy the beautiful white sand, great shelling, and serenity of the area ... not to mention great restaurants and wonderful people. Plus, what can beat a beer and glass of wine on the deck at dusk? Not much! The smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves is, perhaps, the most soothing experience of all.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Wilmington International at 15 Miles Nearest Golf : Wrightsville Beach at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : Route 40 at 7 Miles Car: recommended

Wrightsville Beach is very low-key and 'heaven on earth'!!!

Amenities

From the Owner

There is nothing at Wrightsville Beach that we enjoy more than the beach itself. Whether reading a great book, collecting shells, taking long walks, jumping waves, or watching the kite boarders, we always have a great time. Although I can sit on the beach for hours and hours, when my husband and others need more action, they walk a few steps to Banks Channel to fish, crab, kayak, canoe, and otherwise have fun in the water. Although we don't have our own dock, if you have a boat, there are several boat ramps just minutes away. When we're not on the beach or playing in the water, you'll find us enjoying the scores of great restaurants, some on the island and others just a short drive away. Of course, there's also great shopping off the island in just about every direction. If you've never been to the area, you'll want to take an afternoon or evening to visit Wilmington. The downtown area along the Cape Fear River teems with wonderful eateries, 3- and 4-star restaurants, countless shopping options, and a good bit of history. It's well worth the visit!
