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.
