3 Bdrms, 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 6) + Optional 1-Bdrm, 1st Floor Apt (Sleeps 2)



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!


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!

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

A great location, nice upstairs and downstairs facilities, and accommodating and friendly owners. Well equipped kitchen. Especially enjoyed the long porch fronting the road, which catches a breeze from the shore to the sound. New coffee establishment just 4 blocks away as well--with wonderful service and healthy eating options.

Owner's Response: So glad you and family had a good time, Pat! We've never checked out the new cafe a few blocks away so will be sure to do so on our time. We're at the beach house now for our vacation, weather is beautiful, and we couldn't be happier!

Great house, fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

This is our third summer renting the house. One of the reasons we keep coming back is the house's location. Its close proximity to the ocean and the sound is great for a family with young children. The layout of the house is great...the open floor plan is especially nice for hanging out together when we aren't at the beach. The house is fully stocked which makes packing for vacation very easy. We also enjoy renting from Wendy. She is easy to work with and very quick to respond throughout the entire renting process. We plan on coming back next year!!

We loved this place. So many things to mention. Sunsets on the deck. Short walk to the beach. Watching the boats on the waterway. Inside we enjoyed the open space. 3 nice bedrooms. Wendy did an excellent job making sure all our questions, for a nervous first time renter, were answered. We loved Costal Karma.

A short walk to the ocean or the sound. Not much foot or car traffic as the South Side of the beach is much more family friendly. As far as the house goes, a great deck for sitting and watching the sun set over the sound. Three nice size bedrooms, open concept, you can eat dinner inside and see the sound thru the large bay window. Overall the best value on the beach. We have rented this house for several years and keep coming back.

Perfect stay for an extended Memorial Weekend

  • 5 of 5

First time at Coastal Karma but decided all the great reviews had to be for a reason so took the plunge! Really cute house with everything we needed. We always have a house in July on the left of the Oceanic so was great to try something on the right of it this time. Real upside to that was there's hardly any public parking so the beach felt less crowded which we just loved. Was an unexpected surprise :-) Will definitely keep this on the radar in the future. thanks so much again!!

Owner's Response: So glad you liked the "real" south end of WB! It is so much quieter and so much less traffic that we love it. Hope to welcome you back!

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.

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!
