About the property

Welcome to serene Virginia Avenue on Pleasure Island, a barrier island where this end of the island offers broad, clean beaches one block east of your house, a few blocks west enjoy your kayaks in the waterway. Google the end of Florida Ave, you'll see the small beach perfect for kayak launching. Walk over to the nearby North End Pier plus its small restaurant, walk or drive your 4-wheel onto Freeman Park making your way to pristine dunes + beach for the best view on the island of gorgeous sunsets.

Rinse off after a long day on the sand in the outdoor H/C shower, a comfortable swing surrounded by the grassy yard adds to your spots for your kids play areas or quiet spot to get away with your favorite book. Two bicycles with a lock and a kids pool are available in the Storage Room. Covered parking for 2-3 cars is a bonus. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo and there is a washer/dryer as well.

Relax in rocking chairs along the marsh view front porch, the propane grill adds to meals cooked in your full kitchen with all necessary conveniences of electric/cook top/stove, dishwasher, disposal, toaster oven, built-in microwave, refrigerator w/icemaker. When not out and about, relax in two comfortable sofas around a flat screen TV complete with Charter/Spectrum cable service in the living room. Master Bedroom offers a second flat screen for tv/movie viewing.

**Linens and towels are provided**

On the island your choices for activities are State Parks, Fort Fisher Federal Park w/picnic tables and a cool beach-cove, the North Carolina Aquarium for rainy days or days out of the sun, and Fort Fisher Ferry to historic Southport for a day's outing. The Boardwalk, the Central Business District for shopping+restaurants. Nearby historical Wilmington offers shops/restaurants/horse-drawn buggy rides, its where the annual film festival is held, its vibrant UNC Wilmington campus and ILM airport connect to our coastal community.

About Libby Jernigan

Growing up in Wilmington, experiencing the historical charm of downtown and nearby beaches I know this is a great vacation destination. We share our houses with family and friends, for great times at the beach together. Making friends with visitors, hearing what they find enjoyable here is a bonus!

Libby Jernigan purchased this house in 2016

What makes this house unique

Perfectly located between the beach and sound for either a day on the beach, kayaking on the sound side and the sunset views from the rocking chair front porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Libby

Thank you for letting us stay in your beach house. We had a wonderful time. The house had every thing we needed. One thing that stood out was the bed in the master bedroom. It was so comfortable. We have stayed in a lot of places and one thing that is usually bad is the bed. My wife and I agree that your bed was very comfortable. Your house had plenty of parking and is a very short walk to the beach. Thanks for letting us stay again. Sorry the review took so long. Thanks again.

Peaceful and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The house is located on a quiet street with low traffic and is only a short walk from the beach. My family really enjoyed the outdoor shower which was great for keeping sand out of the living space. The kitchen was very functional with all of the basic necessities. The wrap around porch and rocking chairs with marsh views were great for quiet reading and relaxing. We also took advantage of using the grill after a trip to the local seafood market. Short drive to local attractions and very responsive host.

Lovely rental close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience! The owner was quick and thorough in communication. The departure procedures were very reasonable. The house was clean and fairly well stocked (might consider adding a few more forks in the kitchen and an extra blanket or two for off-season renters). The heat and air conditioning system worked well. Located on a residential street in a quieter area of CB, which we liked. The beach is an easy walk that takes less than 5 minutes. The house has a nice view of the marsh. Recommended!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this house for our girls weekend getaway! Perfectly close to the beach for a short walk (even with loads of beach gear). It's located at the north end of the island so the beach is quiet not crowded. House is cozy and beds are comfortable. The outdoor shower was critical for knocking that sand off. Libby was quick to respond and accommodating. Couldn't ask for more from a weekend rental at the beach!

Happy House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed your home first part of August especially since you allow partial week booking. We can't count on more than one full week off per summer so most homes are unobtainable. Your home is happy, quiet, has a great view and a fantastic outdoor shower. We sat on the deck resting with family after an easy day at the beach a short walk away. Many delicious restaurants available year-round especially Havanna's & Michael's Seafood Restaurant.
