Wrightsville Beach cottage description

An absolutely charming beach bungalow, built in 1947, and decorated to feel as though you have stepped back in time. Sway on a hammock on the huge wrap-around front porch while the smell of confederate jasmine fills your senses. Lay in the day bed. Step out the front door where the blue water and white sands of Wrightsville Beach await.

The house offers two living spaces. Upstairs has 2 generous bedrooms and one bathroom along with a queen size convertible bed, sleeps 6. There is a separate and wonderfully cozy pied-a'-terre 1 BR apartment on the bottom floor, which features it's own private bathroom, kitchen and very lovely living room, with an additional convertible bed, which sleeps 4 people. The total occupancy of the house is 10. In addition there is an outdoor shower that can be enjoyed in the heat of the summer, or almost any time of the year.

Our home has a special, almost mystical quality. It has provided refuge for many a traveling soul, from monks and yogis, to our many friends from around the world. It is a humble and extremely comfortable sanctuary. Full of light, love, and all the charms of the Old South. You will leave feeling refreshed, renewed and full of gratitude.



Keywords: Charming, classic, bungalow. With additional pied-a'-terre and outdoor shower.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: I have been in the advertising business for many years, working on the creative side. My wife teaches yoga and elementary school, and is currently very busy raising our daughter Sienna Sky. We wanted our home to feel like a sanctuary, full of light, wonder and calm. We both enjoy cooking, being outdoors, a healthy lifestyle and traveling.

                          Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach:
                          Just over the old drawbridge awaits this beach paradise. 8 miles of windswept dunes, blue waters, dolphins and all that nature has to offer. Wrightsville Beach is a throwback beach community, where people still ride bikes, eat ice cream, walk the beach and come to enjoy the sun and surf. It is equally charming in the off season, with a temperate climate. It offers a nice chance to get away from the crowds, kayak, walk the beach, read and relax. It is a very special place.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Start your day with a dip in the ocean, just steps away from the front door. Relax on the huge porch, swing in the hammock, and watch the beachcombers pass by. Enjoy the outdoor shower and smells of the ocean breeze. This is a place where you can leave all your worries behind.
