Recent Wrightsville Beach reviews

  • Just Perfect!

    "I have rented this amazing home several times during the last few years, and I would not consider any other Wrightsville Beach rental. Carol Ann and her team really know how to run a first class operation. The house is warm and elegant, very well maintained, and the service is first class. She is a designer, so the furnishings are beautiful and relaxing. We love the kitchen, so well-equipmmed and spacious. Although we were ocean folks in the past, we love the lagoon setting - it’s swimmable, beautiful and very calming - and the beach is a quick walk."

  • Fantastic Stay in Wrightsville!!

    "We honestly can't say enough about our vacation rental in Wrightsville Beach this year. We have been to WB a number of times in the past, and this time my family stayed in this wonderful condo. From the moment we walked through the door we were impressed! Unbelievably spacious (way more than the photos show), spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and completely well stocked. Things we loved-- the quality of the furniture was like being at home and not at a rental property, all the books to read, the kitchen had everything we needed, beach chairs, -- we could go on and on. Thanks for renting to us. We would certainly come back again!"

  • Perfection In the Heart of Wrightsville Beach

    "My husband and I stayed in this 1-bedroom condo for the month of September and it was pure perfection! From the unit itself, nicely furnished with everything you could possibly need down to beach chairs and daiquiri blender, to the location, a mere 50 steps to the beach at access 29. Bring your sandals, sunscreen, beach towel and a few good books. Great beach to run or walk. Bike and paddle board rental across street at Aussie surf Shop. Watch football at Jerry Allen's. Breakfast pancakes at King Neptune. The absolute best ice cream sandwiches and pimento cheese at Robert's Grocery. All within a block of condo. We will be back! Loved every minute!"

  • Perfect Vacation

    "We have been coming to Wrightsville Beach every summer for years now. This is by far the greatest place we have stayed. The house is beautiful and the owners have done a fabulous job at keeping the original feel while updating this beautiful family home. We loved the location!!! Being able to walk to the beach anytime you want in just a couple minutes meant a lot to us. We also enjoyed being close to the sound for our youngest child to swim in the calm water. The owners were a dream. If we had any questions they responded right away. We can't wait to come back."
