Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: A beach-lover since childhood, it was my dream to own a special home in this exceptional small beach town- Wrightsville Beach - near the historic city of Wilmington for urban adventures. I am a professional designer. I detailed and furnished the home so that it would welcome and comfort visiting friends and family, and now I am offering it to you for your use as well.

Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach:
Best non-oceanfront location in Wrightsville Beach, on Sunset Lagoon, two block walk to ocean. Absolutely nicest rental home in Wrightsville Beach. In a quiet safe residential neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Use of 30 foot dock in deep water lagoon, near Banks Channel and IntraCoastal Waterway. Swim off the dock using retractable ladder. Bike or walk to downtown Wrightsville Beach. Bring your kayak or canoe or paddle board (or use our 2 kayaks and paddle board) to explore the nearby channels and marshes. Cook's kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolfe appliances. Designer tile detailing and plumbing fixtures in spacious bathrooms. Master bedroom suite with deck overlooking lagoon, vistas of ocean, steam shower. Plasma TV's in three locations, other TV's in individual bedrooms. Ping Pong. Beach cart. In off-season, you will love our upscale interior setting.
