About Rick

I was originally a midwesterner from Missouri who married a 5th generation Greensboro NC girl who grew up vacationing at Wrightsville Beach. We have four beautiful children who grew up spending their summers at Wrightsville Beach. We have owned homes at Wrightsville Beach since 2000 and I can not tell you how wonderful Wrightsville Beach is!! We welcome you to our home! Rick

Rick purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Rick chose Wrightsville Beach

Salt Box Cottage was purchased and updated in 2015. It is in the neighborhood of Parmele Isle which is the only other neighborhood on Wrightsville Beach other than Harbor Island. It is on a quiet very family friendly cul de sac with no parking on the street. Salt Box provides fabulous access to everything while feeling like you are on a remote island. Most neighbors are full time and welcome and respect our guest.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful freshly remodeled beach cottage house that will feel like your own home. Beach fresh remodel, new furniture and bedding, tv's among many other wonderful amenities. 7+ parking spaces, bikes, plenty of storage and hang out space below with beautiful 360 degree water views from the widows walk on top of the house. Our home is your home! Come enjoy it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rick -

We loved your house and the whole family had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend in your home. We loved the widows peak and you are right, the sunsets are incredible. I am sorry for you about the house going up across the street - surely you will miss that "window" of view, but your front porch is still a wonderfully relaxing place for coffee and lunches. We could not have had nicer weather - we sat out and walked the loop every day! We got the ice-maker working within a day and other than needing a hair dryer (which we purchased from CVS) the house was perfect!! We loved your touches and appreciate how you stocked you home for guests to fully enjoy. It is a gem! If we can muster our parents for another Thanksgiving away from Chapel Hill - we will surely return.



Thank you again for being so accommodating,

Great Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in June 2017 and could not have been more pleased. Rick has thought of just about everything! Very spacious and updated. GREAT location with access to kayak launch and 5-8 minute walk to the beach. Thanks for the memories!

Peaceful oasis in Wrightsville Beach

  • 5 of 5

The most enjoyable part of this vacation home was its location on a calm, quiet street. The house was well appointed with everything in working order. There is plenty of recreational equipment on-site, which the owner graciously shares with rental guests. The owner checked with us after we arrived and we were made to feel very much like his personal guests. The location house is a bit longer of a walk to the beach. But there are carts on site and the walk was not a problem for us. The Salt Box is a great place to stay. After 2 or 3 summers away from Wrightsville, we were so happy to return.

Best regards to you and your family and thank you again. Rick

Great house Great location

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for memorial day weekend. My family and I had the best time. The owner Rick is very nice and on top of things. The house is beautiful, clean, and has everything you will need. The location is grea! It's only a short walk to the beach but your also not on a main street so it's very quite. We loved it and plan on renting this house again.

Perfect for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family gathering here and this lovely home. Our son got married in Wrightsville Beach and our family stayed here. We had a fantastic time. The home was very comfortable and inviting with enough bedrooms and beds for all out guests. The times together, grilling and having dinners together or enjoying the magnificent views from the widow's walk rooftop deck for our morning coffee and sunset wine were memory makers!

We have all decided that we would love to come back again and stay here to enjoy making more family memories here!

Great for a family wedding stay in Wrightsville Beach.

  • 4 of 5

A little bit of a walk to the beach (yards, not miles) but lots of toys to use. Sometimes you wonder about big houses, but lots of privacy for each guest. Grill area cool. Widow walk is super cool. Kind of odd that you have to order and pay linens separately. My friends and family loved it that we were able to hang out together.

Owner's Response: Rick so glad your friends and family were able to be our guest for your wedding week end. Thank you for your nice comments on how quiet the rooms are, the wonderful widows walk with the great view and the grill area which is truly a great gathering place. We advertise as a sound side home and thank you for clarifying it was yards not miles to the beach. We provide two beach carts to carry beach chairs, coolers to make it easy to make the short 8 minute walk and have never had any complaints. We also like to give our renters the option of bringing their own linens and not having that built into the rental cost. Everyone seems to appreciate this option and love the linens when they use the service. Again thanks so much and please come back and see us again soon! Rick

Perfect wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I got married in April and my bridesmaids and I stayed at this home. Rick is fabulous. He is so accommodating. He was very flexible (which as a bride you truly appreciate). The house itself is so charming. Everything you could possibly want is there. Everyone has their own space, but there is also great common area for everyone to hang out. We loved the hammock, ping pong, and roof deck. It was perfect for our larger group. This is such a wonderful home to rent on Wrightsville Beach. I am thrilled we had the opportunity to stay there and would absolutely stay again.
