Property description

Only 1 boat slip available!

Time seems to stand still at this enchanting cottage nestled by the pristine tidal creek waters of Pages Creek in a family and pet oriented neighborhood. Please be respectful of our neighbors. Noise level becomes whisper level after 10:00 pm please. While staying at the cottage, you can be as active as you want or simply sit back and savor the serenity. Enjoy your aha moment while you totally recharge...

The cottage has a private pier with a long boardwalk and floating dock so bring your 28' or smaller boat and moor it, or rent by the hour, day or week at Entropy Boat Rentals and ask for Chris or Terri (910-686-7677). You can also rent a paddle board, kayak or other boat related items.

When you are not out on the water, there is a multitude of options inside the cottage as well as on the acre of land where you can run and play corn hole, horse shoes or badminton (on deck).

After spending a day on the water, sit back and relax on the suspended deck over Pages Creek. The quietness is refreshing and the wide-open "Million Dollar" panoramic view of the intracoastal waterway as well as Porter's Neck and Figure Eight Island is mesmerizing. Tie your crab trap to the piling and await your dinner or throw out a sinker… Or simply sit back and watch the sunset, it is magical.

The deck off the cottage gives you a true outdoor respite where you can fire up a gas grill or light up the coals. While you await your dinner, throw up your feet and watch and listen to the birds as they serenade you with their songs of contentment. If you truly want your bird friends happy, keep their feeders full. Bird food is located at base of deck steps.

As the sky darkens, step down to prepare the family S'mores over the fire pit or simply cuddle on the swing as you listen to the crackling wood.

The cottage has been renovated for your comfort. Spacious open plan between the living and kitchen area provides the perfect entertaining space and enables you to enjoy the beauty of the creek while inside. New cabinets, all new appliances and gorgeous granite have been installed as well as bar stools, couch, and recliner. All living room chairs swivel and rock allowing you to maximize the view.

However, if you are a traveler that enjoys exploring, you have definitely chosen the right place to hang your hat… An kinformation notebook is provided and located beside the front door to help you plan your excursions. We are so centrally located that everyone can enjoy their dream vacation. It truly is the best of both worlds – tranquility with easy accessibility...

We are committed to helping you achieve your memories. You are renting from owners that want you to enjoy our cottage as much as we do!!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in Sanford but consider Wilmington as our second home. Most check-in days, we drive down to the cottage for a walk through, set up your welcome basket and wait to greet you upon your arrival. We show you through the cottage, answer any questions that you may have and depart so you can begin your vacation. If Bill and I cannot meet you, you will be greeted by our son or daughter in law. Pryor and Megan live less than a quarter of a mile from the cottage. Even though we live in Sanford, we are always just a phone call away. Jennifer and Bill

Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach:
Perfect Location... Nestled in a quiet waterfront family and pet friendly neighborhood, less than 7 miles to Wrightsville Beach. The property has a wide-open view of Pages Creek and the ICW....The water is incredibly peaceful. Have dinner on the decks as the sun sets. Fish from the dock, catch crabs in the trap or simply watch the ebb and flow of the tide throughout the day. Occasionally, you will see a pair of porpoises swimming by the house or hear the waves crashing on Figure 8 Island. Bring your boat or rent and explore, fish, kayak, paddle-board or wake-board on the creek.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Waterfront... THE VIEW.... THE TRANQUILITY...Bird Watching Deep water access with private pier and floating dock and a swim ladder... BOAT ENTHUSIAST: The Creek Cottage is a must!!!!
