Description of the Wrightsville Beach vacation home rental
Magnificent sunsets are yours from our sound
side home & garden. Being in the narrow section
of the island you are only one undeveloped lot
from the ocean. Sunrise over the ocean &
beach activities so close.
Many of our guest have told us our home was the
perfect place for their family to reconnect. That
our location gave each family member a place
they could enjoy. Whether a member preferred
the ocean or sound, it was close by.

You will cherish this time spent together, in a home
that was built when the trolley went by its front porch
but provides modern amenites.
The wrap around porch is the perfect place to rock,
read or visit with family & friends.

Swimming, fishing, sunbathing & surfing are just steps
away. Shopping, museums, golf, wineries & more
close by.
For the boater in the family, from our dock to the ocean
is clear water. No bridges or power lines.

With the 4 bedrooms, family room, kitchen/breakfast
nook, formal dining room & porch on one level, it
makes for an ideal situation with younger children
& family gathering.

The shared sound side pier is ideal to sit, read, picnic
or just sit back an enjoy the boats going by.
Our floating dock (26 feet) works well for
fishing or mooring your boat. We are just a short
boat ride from the inlet or Masonboro Island
( A natural undeveloped island) without any
bridges in your way.

We do not rent to:
SPRING BREAKS PARTIES, or other such parties
unless request is submitted in writing & approved.
There may be an increase in security deposit and
increase in rent if party is approved. We have also
had to curtail pets because of some past pet owners.
Area Information
Wrightsville Beach is an excellent location to relax and
enjoy. You can be in the center of activity or you can just
relax. The history buff can explore the many historial
sites or for the adventurous, many shipwrecks
of yesteryear are just off the coast. Shoppers have Outlets,
Dept. stores, antiques shops and more for their
enjoyment. The area is a mecca for golf & tennis. Stroll
the sandy beach or the River walk downtown Wilmingtom.
Children's activities & playgrounds abound. Several
wineries are within a short drive. Family activities
are varied & numerious. We hope to see you soon and
add to your familiy memories.
Come join us and see the beauty of the coast.

Family Memories

September 15, 2015

The home was lovely - beautifully preserved from the 1920's and positioned between the Ocean and the Inter-coastal. The kitchen was equipped for cooking, the book shelves for reading and the porch for rocking. We loved it and will go back yearly.

We really did make Family Memories

August 18, 2014

Perfect house if you have a family of beach lovers and fishermen in the group. The boat dock is in front of the house with a covered area, deep water, even caught a stingray by mistake while fishing off dock! The beach is a very short walk behind the house, across a narrow street. So much to do within walking distance. The owners are so very nice and accommodating in every way.

Perfect location

July 14, 2014

This 100+ year old house is like vacationing at grandma's and is located directly between Banks Channel and the ocean. The sunset views are amazing, and the ocean is only vacant lot away. It was the perfect spot for our boat/surf loving family. Thank you for the hospitality!

The beach and the sound all in one

August 31, 2013

We had a wonderful time at this old historic house; location awesome. Just cross street and you are at the sound with covered boat dock. Out the front door cross the street and you are in close walking distance to the ocean. Owners are so friendly and available. The house is old and could use some updating. There are chandliers where ceiling fans would be nice, but overall for the price, southern hospitality, and location you cannot beat it.

Great times!

June 13, 2013

My sister, her son and family, and I had a great time at this location. Easy access to the beach where we found shells and sea glass entertaining the children. Excellent fishing off the dock, enough to bring home to Texas and Kentucky for a meal. Enjoyed meeting the owners at the gazebo, they were very helpful with history and information about the area. A relaxing vacation and visit to Wilmington. Thanks Rick and Mimi. Hopefully we will see you next year.

UNCW Graduation Fabulous Experience

May 19, 2013

I have admired this home since the early 70s and remember so well the garden and gazebo on the sound. A friend and I decided to rent it when our daughters graduated from UNCW. We had such a wonderful experience and enjoyed the home and the grounds so much. With the permission of the owners, we had a small graduation gathering on the sound side after the graduation ceremony on campus. It was a memorable event for our daughers, their friends and our families. The access to the ocean is very convenient. This is a unique home with a fascinating history. We were lucky enough to meet the owner and get details about the area and the home. We brought kayaks, a paddle board and jet ski and had great access to the sound. My friend is so impressed with the area that she is relocating to Coastal NC from PA! We will be back for another Mother's Day and another upcoming Graduation! Thanks so much for a memorable time!

Beach Vacation

July 25, 2010

We spent the week at the house and had a great time. The location was perfect with the beach in the front and the sound in the back. Although the house is old it has alot of history and it is well maintained. We look forward to visiting it again.

Great Place on the Beach

May 19, 2009

We had a group from all over the east coast meeting in Wrightsville for a reunion golf weekend. The place couldn't have been any better for us. It was convenient to the beach, walking distance to the town center, and close enough to many golf courses. We had a great time and suggest it to anyone else.
