About the property

Great location, amazing views, 6 ocean view bedrooms, 5 bath, sleeps 18 in beds

Do you have multiple families wanting to stay together? Stay at Carolina Breeze on Wrightsville Beach VRBO#484202 for your next large family vacation. Beach and ocean views from just about every room in the house. You'll enjoy a large updated kitchen with granite countertops and bar height seating. All bathrooms were renovated in 2013, featuring tile flooring and new fixtures. Hardwood floors are in the main living areas with plenty of room and seating for large families. The house sleeps 18 people in 6 bedrooms with pillow top mattresses without the use of uncomfortable pull out sleeper sofas.

Just 75 feet from the beach! This 3,000 square foot single family home sits on a spacious half acre lot. Take comfort in knowing that a lifeguard is stationed (Memorial Day to Labor Day) near the private beach access. Kids can safely splash and play in the ocean without worry. Washing off the sand after a day at the beach is easy with the outdoor shower. All this, plus the house is located near the heart of Wrightsville Beach!

Wake up seeing the sun rise off the ocean and enjoy your morning beverage while watching the surfers and dolphins from your large private deck. This single family home features over 1,100 square feet of wrap around decking composed of sundecks and covered areas and a 300 s.f. screened in porch overlooking the ocean. At all times of the day there are areas around the house with sun and areas with shade. This is a great home for large family gatherings. The house consists of 6 bedrooms, all with ocean views, 5 full bathrooms and an open living area that showcases endless ocean views with an abundance of natural light. With this single family home there is no need to go outdoors to access other bedrooms or certain areas of the house as you would with a duplex/two family property with as many bedrooms.

This property is located on a private road just .5 mile from Johnny Mercer's Pier, "The Loop" and just two minutes from downtown Wrightsville Beach. There is enough off street parking for 7+ cars in the driveway. If you're not in the mood to prepare a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) we are a very short walk to the Holiday Inn Resort that features two restaurants and bar.

Beach chairs and sand toys are available as well as a Foosball table. There are 2 Blu-ray DVD players and smart TVs in all bedrooms as well as the main living area with on demand video streaming services.

About Wrightsville Beach from visitwrightsvillebeachnc website:

Known for its many waterways and channels from the sound to the sea, this seaside town is the perfect place to practice all watersports. Cruise the water by kite-board, kayak or paddle board, tame the area’s world-class surf, reel in a prize-worthy fish at sea, or just sit back and enjoy the spectacular views of the sunrise over the ocean or sunset during an evening harbor cruise.'

Great place to spend a week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a very good week at Wrightsville Beach. The location of this property makes the beach very safely accessible for families with children. The view from the porch is outstanding. The house is very comfortable for a large family with plenty of dishes and two dishwashers, as well as plenty of bathrooms. Excellent property.

Great house, great location, and great owners!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have rented Carolina Breeze for our family, and we really enjoyed our stay. The owners are great to work with during the rental process, and they have a beautifully maintained and appointed home. They made a number of very nice upgrades to the house between the 2015 and 2016 seasons and they clearly think about how to make the house work well for their guests.

This house has great porches and deck space, ample parking, great beach access and wonderful views. The kitchen is very nice and there is a nice, large dining space that accommodates large groups. The house is comfortable with a beautiful, large, ocean-facing living room and nice bedrooms. Highly recommended!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Carolina Breeze for 1 week in early June while we were in town for a family wedding. We have a large family, and this lovely property accommodated our group perfectly! We enjoyed the gorgeous ocean views from both inside and outside the house. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cooking and eating ware you could possibly want. We prepared several large meals for our group, and had everything we needed. Though we didn't spend a ton of time watching TV (who would with the ocean and quaint Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington so near?), it was very good quality picture and sound. We enjoyed eating out at various restaurants, including Neptunes, Bridge Tender and others, all of which were a short drive from the beach house. If you are looking for that special place right on the ocean and need to house a large group, Carolina Breeze is a great choice. Highly recommend! Thank you, Alex and Tracy!

Amazing extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Carolina Beach house because of the described amenities for a large family. We were all pleasantly surprised at how clean and spacious the house was when we got there. My daughter was graduating from UNCW so we needed a house to accommodate my large extended family. The 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms were perfect! The kitchen and living room areas were open and big enough for our family gatherings. The ocean views from the upper deck were breath taking. Every morning we saw Dolphins swimming across the ocean. We loved how close we were to the beach and enjoyed our daily walks/runs to the pier. The lower deck and gas grill were nice to have for our BBQ dinner. We loved that the house was in walking distance to the Johnny Merxer pier and Wrightsville "loop". We enjoyed the local restaurants - Tower 7, The Oceanic, and the Blue Water Grill. We also were happy with the short drive to the UNCW campus. The private road to the house and the ample parking were nice features. The board games were also fun accessories to have for our very competitive families! Overall we loved the beach house and would recommend it to anyone who has a large family. Thanks Tracy and Alex we had a great time and we hope to rent again next year for another UNCW graduation for my nephew.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Amazing house! We had a houseful of friends and family celebrate our wedding weekend on Wrightsville Beach and we had the ceremony at the house on the lower deck. It was the perfect weekend and everyone that stayed with us at the house LOVED IT! The house was perfect and the kitchen with the great dining room table/living area overlooking the ocean seemed to be where we spent a lot of time. Both the upper and lower decks were used a lot as well. The local restaurants/bars and shopping were perfect for those that wanted to break away. The amenities and layout was as we expected and actually exceeded my expectations. The property was clean and well-maintained. I greatly appreciated the owners willingness to work with us and accommodate our schedule. We had an amazing time and the house was perfect for our group. SO much that we all want to make this an annual trip and stay at this house. We will be back next year!!
