Property description

Enjoy great ocean and Banks Channel water views from the wrap around porch. You will enjoy easy access by walking only seconds to the beach, Cafe Del Mar (coffee), Robert's Grocery, Sweetwater Surf Shop, Vito's (pizza), Kohls (frozen custard), Trolley Stop (hot dogs) and Tower 7, the BEST Baja Mexican Grill around. You are also a short walk to Johnny Mercer's Fishing Pier and Arcade, the local park and museum, other restaurants and shopping boutiques. To really enjoy the island rent a boat at Nautitimes (see related links) and dock during the day at Wynn Plaza one block from the house.

This 1930's home has been updated with modern conveniences but maintains the vintage charm of the classic beach cottage. Relax on the expansive wrap around porch overlooking the beach access with a cup of coffee in the mornings or a relaxing beverage in the afternoons and evenings.

Weekly rentals only during the main season are from Sunday - Sunday. You must be 25 or older to rent this property. Reservations made under false pretenses will be subject to cancellation and eviction with no refund given. Property is non smoking. Linens and towels are not provided but a linen service provider can be recommended if needed (see links below).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach:
We bought this home from the family that built the property back in the 1930's. Our two children have grown up enjoying the beach and life here at Wrightsville Beach. We are ready to share our home with guests now that our children are older and more involved with activities that do not allow us to be at the beach as much as in past years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The best benefit of the property is its location. Once you arrive there is no reason to get back in your car for anything unless you want to visit other areas around Wrightsville. Restaurants, shops and a grocery store are all within two blocks. We do encourage you to visit downtown historic Wilmington and its beautiful riverfront.
