              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: I am a beach girl at heart and it is there I feel most at home. The Sand Crab Cottage is a blessing and dream come true for me and I hope it will be for you too.

              Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach:
              Wrightsville Beach is the perfect location. The water is gorgeous, the sand is smooth, the climate is wonderful, and the appeal of close by Wilmington cannot be beat.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The Loop! 2.5 mile 'loop' around the island for walking, biking, running, etc. Johnny Mercer Pier! Close by for fishing, entertainment, meeting and greeting the locals. The Beach! Step out of our cottage and you can see the beach access from the deck. Just a few houses to the left and you are there. Just a few houses to the right, and you can drop your canoe or kayak in the Intracoastal water way. Fishing! Catch your dinner off the pier, or directly from the surf. The Peace! The Sand Crab Cottage is a Seaside Sanctuary where you can rest, recharge, relax, and refresh.
