Wrightsville Beach cottage description

Book for 2015 by end of 2014 and receive a discount. Pet friendly fencing will be completed by end of Oct. with dog door access. Dredging has been completed. Time seems to stand still at this charming cottage nestled by the pristine tidal creek waters of Pages Creek in a family and pet oriented neighborhood. We offer easy access to the intracoastal waterway by boat; as well as, easy access by car to other locations. Whilpe staying at the cottage, savor the serenity, since you will not be disturbed by traffic, only an occasional boat and fewer cars. Enjoy your aha moment while you totally recharge...
The cottage has a private pier with a long boardwalk and floating dock so bring your 24' or smaller boat and moor it, or rent by the hour or day at Entropy Boat Rentals and ask for Chris (910-686-7677). 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 view” of the tidal creek gives you a panoramic view of the intracoastal waterway as well as Porter's Neck and Figure Eight Island. 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.
Enjoy the deck off the living room with a gas grill. The new additions to the deck give you a true outdoor experience with new (2014) cushioned resin furniture as well as surround benches… Step down and prepare your S’mores over the fire pit while listening to the creek sounds and gazing at the stars ( no street lights) or swing your cares away on the new swing …
The cottage has been renovated for your comfort. Spacious open plan connects the living and kitchen area into the perfect entertaining space and enables you to enjoy the beauty of the creek while inside. New cabinets and appliances have been installed as well as bar stools, couch, and recliner.(2014)
We welcome children and have child appropriate games, toys, movies as well as child appropriate plates, utensils & sippy cups. A single pack n play and umbrella stroller are also available. All living room chairs, including the recliner rock and swivel to maximize the view of the tidal creek. Satellite televisions are in the living room, master bedroom and annex room.
However, if you are a traveler that enjoys exploring, you have definitely chosen the right place to hang your hat… An information notebook is located beside the kitchen door (contains guide brochures, maps, addresses, phone numbers and WiFi information) 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...
It is a short car or boat ride to Wrightsville Beach where you will find multiple dining by the waterway options. As you dine, watch the old Wrightsville Beach Bridge rise to allow the yachts access to the south or north. The public boat ramp is also located here...
Come enjoy the quiet...

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We live in Sanford but consider Wilmington as our second home. We are always just a phone call away. We can give you advice on just about any attraction in the area. The marina that you can rent the boat and all amenities is located just down the road, less than a quarter of a mile. Pete and Chris have everything that you need. 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 'million dollar view' of Page's 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... Deep water access with private pier and floating dock and a swim ladder... Today a friend of our son docked his 36' twin outboard engine Mako boat at the dock at almost low tide. Said it has to do with the draw. BOAT ENTHUSIAST: The Creek Cottage is a must!!!!
