About the owner: My children grew up enjoying this beach house. As they grew up & moved on to college we began to share this special place. We love this house and spend time here every opportunity.We have wonderful memories made here & you will too.
Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach: My husband grew up on Wrightsville Sound & knew this was the perfect location for his family. When the property became available he lovingly restored it & we have enjoyed every minute spent here since!We are from Wrightsville Beach &knew this was the perfect location.
No matter how busy or hectic a summer day is at Wrightsville Beach, when you walk out to the porch overlooking the sound, it is quiet peaceful & absolutely stunning. Watching the tide rise & fall & expose all of its beauty is an extraordinary experience.
Rise early & walk the beach, go for a bike ride, a kayak excursion or walk the loop - its all right here. Peaceful & serene but plenty of activity.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We enjoy everything this location has to offer: swimming, surfing, kayaking, observing nature, reading, walking on the beach or loop,tennis at WB Park,biking,great meals at sunset on the outside porch, walking or biking downtown WB for an evening ice cream - its all so convenient & great fun
