Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 2, 2015
4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 14 fully furnished and equipped

Updated 1970's house, reminiscent of childhood vacations at the beach, provides a comfortable, relaxing home in a quiet south end neighborhood. Easy access makes it just a 2 minute walk to the beach and a hop and skip to view stunning sunsets over the sound. A bird sanctuary is a block away on the south tip of the island. Terns nest there during the summer. It's a great place for children to bike, scoot or skateboard on child friendly streets so between the beach, the sound, and the neighborhood, children can spend lots of time outside. Fully equipped kitchen makes it easy to prepare fresh seafood dishes for a family meal. Open floor plan allows for ease of entertaining.

The 4 bedrooms supply 2 queen and 2 double beds with 2 full baths located between rooms. The sofa in the living room folds out to allow for more sleeping accommodations. Enjoy ocean breezes while rocking in rocking chairs or swinging in the hammock on the front porch, in the mornings with coffee, after a day at the beach with a beer or glass or wine, or star gazing at night. The outdoor shower and the carport is covered in jasmine for delicious smells when it's blooming in June. Parking for up to 6 cars is a plus as parking on the side of the street is not allowed and guests can visit during the day without paying public parking fees. The house provides 2 TV's, wifi, dvd player, and a radio/CD player.

The utility room below supplies a washer and dryer, boogie board, skim board, sand toys and comfortable beach chairs. An outside grill makes it easy to cook while watching the sunset over the sound.

If you want to live a simple life of ease and relaxation on your vacation, this house and location is perfect.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time visiting Wrightsville Beach, and this house provided a great home base. It was about 1.5 blocks from a beautiful beach that was not busy at all while we were there. It's a short drive to some great restaurants and 45 minutes to the aquarium.

The house itself is roomy and has a relaxing front deck (as pictured). The outdoor shower and washing machine downstairs were perfect for easy cleanup after the beach. The kids really enjoyed the beach toys and toys to play with on the carport.

I would highly recommend this house!

Perfect Beach Home

  • 5 of 5
We had family from all over the U.S. gathering for a wedding. This house became the hub for all. It is not lavish, but very comfortable and family friendly. Because of the open kitchen, dining, living area you could be a part of the group no matter what you were doing. The house is very well equipped and even had a variety of toys for the toddler. It's proximity to the beach was great, just a short walk and you are there! We had fun watching the sunrise, playing in the surf and walking on the sand. To top it all off the homeowner was great to work with which made our stay that much more enjoyable. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We felt so at home! The house is comfortable and complete with everything we needed to make our getaway celebration spectacular. Lovely neighborhood to take a walk, close to many activities and short stroll to the beach. Our mini -family reunion was a success and everyone wants to come back next year, all the way from California - so worth it!

relaxing

  • 4 of 5
This spacious home is a most relaxing and quiet home, kitchen well-equipped, also has a nice and comfortable sitting area with TV. Great space for a family, large enough for each to have their own "space"! The bedrooms are spacious, beds comfortable and bathrooms clean. The porch was my favorite place to be, comfy rockers to enjoy morning coffee or evening for chatter with friends and family. The walk to the beach is short and well-marked; the beach is wide and less crowded than some larger beaches; restaurants nearby have great menu choices from burgers to delicious seafood. We enjoyed this beach home and will be going back soon! I would recommend this place to my friends!

A Great Little Beach House

  • 5 of 5
After hearing from my sister from Germany, I rented this place with some friends from Salt Lake. I grew up on the North Carolina coast and it was nice to be home. This house is on the South end away from all the tourists. I mean don't get me wrong, it was a quick bike ride to the main part of the island, but if you wanted some peace and quiet, this was the place to be.

Although older, the property was clean and comfortable, with a veritable jungle encompassing it. I love outdoor showers and was pleased this house had a fully functioning one. It makes the transition from beach to house that much easier.

The grill and kitchen was a godsend. Many of my friends have picky appetites and the full kitchen and grill meant we could prepare whatever we wanted however we wanted.

The internet did cut out once, but with the owner's help, we were able to get it started back again. For anyone coming, unplug the modem and the router, then plug in the modem first and then, once all the lights are on, the router.

Everyone's favorite activity was to walk out to either the pier or the jetty at night. You truly get a sense of the ocean's power when you can only hear it.

Perfect house for almost anyone, and a great location!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is a perfect place for a relaxed vacation to the beach! It is cozy and comfortable, has two bathrooms, and can sleep up to 8-9 people. The outdoor shower is really nice and the landscaping and plants along the walkway made me feel like I was really somewhere tropical. Whoever owns this place must really have a green thumb! It has a nice open living area great for cooking and simultaneously socializing. While we stayed at the house, we ate most of our meals on the front porch. The jasmine lining the balcony smelled so good we just couldn't resist. Wrightsville beach has some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen, especially the south end where this house is located. It's close enough to the beach bars and restaurants to bike, but the beaches on the south end are cleaner and less crowded as well as great for surfing and kite surfing. One of our favorite things to do in the evenings was walk 30 seconds to the sound side of the island and watch the beautiful sunsets. I would highly recommend this rental and would rent it again the next time I plan to take a trip abroad!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the house and location so much. Our family enjoys the sunsets too. It's a daily ritual.

Location

From the Owner

During our childhood our family visited Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach often. We had extended family that lived in Wilmington. Our families would spend days on the beach swimming, surfing, sunning and enjoying picnics of homemade pimento cheese and tomato sandwiches. Our best childhood memories were made on this beach.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Wilmington Airport at 10 Miles Nearest Barpub : Oceanic at 0.25 Miles Nearest Ferry : Ft. Fisher at 30 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-40 at 7 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Oceanic at 0.25 Miles Nearest Beach : Wrightsville Car: recommended

The property is in a quiet, residential neighborhood, within walking and biking distance to restaurants, surf shops, stores, ice cream shops, parks, a local museum, and farmers market. A two minute walk to the beach and a hop and skip to the sound for quieter water and beautiful sunsets. The beach location is at the south end of the island where there is a minimum of parking for daily beach visitors so the beach is not crowded. The ocean water is crystal clear 80% of the time and a Caribbean ocean color. Pier, surf and sound fishing are popular. A bird sanctuary is located at the end of the island and protected by fencing and bird watchers.

Amenities

From the Owner

My father always dreamed of having a house at Wrightsville. In fact in the 1960's he bought the lot our house is on. By a quirk of fate, we ended up with the house when Dino DeLaurentiis needed to move 2 houses off the lots he was building his house on, when he opened what is now Screen Gems Studio. For the last 30 years we have made cherished memories in this house. We've spent countless hours preparing meals together in the kitchen, playing games on the long dinner table, rocking on the porch with a cup of coffee, a cold beer after a day at the beach, or with a sleepy baby. This house is comfortable enough to suit all your needs while being simple enough to encourage relaxation.
