Oceanfront Shell Island Resort Suite Five-Star Amenities

Let the fun begin! Newly renovated, beautifully decorated oceanfront luxury suite overlooks the Atlantic Ocean with miles of white sandy beaches. Nearby is an inlet and marsh to explore, and the quaint seaside town of Wrightsville Beach offers something for everyone in your party. The resort-type setting features a vast array of amenities: ocean-side pool, hot tub/jacuzzi, an indoor heated pool, sand volleyball, fitness center, and bike rentals. Beach chairs and umbrellas are also available. There is also an excellent and reasonably priced on-site restaurant, as well as poolside lunch service and full bar. Live music on the weekends makes this the perfect vacation getaway. There is also a business center, free internet, and free parking.

This elegant resort sits at the Northern end of Wrightsville Beach, the premier beach in North Carolina. The suite is located on the 5th floor and is accessible by both elevator and stairs.

Enter and proceed down the tiled entry hall to get your first breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean through a wall of windows. A sliding glass door opens to your private balcony and the mesmerizing sound of the surf. This suite is 500 Sq. ft but it feels much bigger with its expansive views, large mirrored wall, upscale decor and attention to detail.

The comfortable and well-appointed living area has a leather sleeper/sofa with a new mattress and a recliner creating the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the stunning views or catch up on your favorite television shows on the flat -screen TV.

The granite and tile kitchenette is well-equipped with a cooktop, microwave refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, blender and designer dishes, and cookware if you are in the mood to just stay in for a home cooked meal. The well-stocked kitchen is complete with coffee, creamer, paper towels, plastic wrap, salt/pepper and essential gadgets to make it feel like home.

The master bedroom features two brand new beds with full-sized mattresses with designer bedding, sheets, and pillows and a flat-screen TV. And don't forget to take in the stunning views of the vast and mysterious marsh and the amazing intricate intercoastal waterway.

The bathroom features a tiled bathtub/shower combo and two sinks and two toilets making it easy and comfortable for a family or two couples. All linens and towels are provided as well as spa quality shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap.

While we have tried to think of everything to make your stay as complete and comfortable as possible if you have forgotten something there is a convenient shop located in the hotel which carries all types of sundries and great souvenirs. Also, there is a convenient on-site laundry facility.

Water sports abound in the area, including surfing, sailboarding, jet and water skiing, scuba diving, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, surf and deep sea fishing. Or just go down to the beach and relax or stroll along the sandy shore and hunt for the perfect seashell.

The resort has so much to offer, but if you want to venture out, the historical and charming downtown Wilmington is only twenty minutes away by car. Spend the afternoon touring Wilmington's historic sites, unique shops, art galleries, and award-winning restaurants and if you have any energy left, stay and enjoy the lively nightlife scene.

This property is owner-operated and our top priority is providing you with the most comfortable accommodations so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. If something is not right we will make it right as soon as possible.

This is property has been on the rental program of the Shell Island Resort for several years and has always received positive feedback. This is our first season on the VRBO. We look forward to having you as our guest and welcome your comments and suggestions.

About Barbara Block

I currently live in Colorado but I was born and raised in the Wilmington/ Wrightsville Beach area. My parents had a summer home on Wrightsville Beach and some of my most treasured memories are of my time spent on the beach swimming, collecting shells, fishing, boating, water skiing and experiencing the magical sunsets. I still have family in the area and visit every chance I get. Wrightsville Beach has a special place in my heart, and I'm sure once you visit, it will be in your heart forever as well.

Barbara Block purchased this Resort in 2014

Why Barbara Block chose Shell Island

Shell Island Resort sits at the Northern most end of Wrightsville Beach and each unit offers unobstructed views of the Ocean, marshland, and Intracoastal waterway. It is convenient to get to yet since it is at the end of the island it offers more privacy and space. Each suite is unique and all have kitchenettes which allow you to cook in or there is an onsite, affordable restaurant.

What makes this Resort unique

This property is unique because while you have the convenience of resort amenities you also have all the comforts of home in your own private suite and private balcony. The ocean is just steps from the resort or if sand is not your thing then the beautiful outdoor pool is just close enough without the sand. There is also an indoor heated pool for those chillier days.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    I always appreciate feedback on how I can improve a guest's stay. Unfortunately, the rules of the beach and the resort are for the guests' safety. I have no control over the rules that the resort has put in place and feel are necessary to keep visitors safe and respect other guests staying at the resort. Thank you for your feedback.

                                                                    Great Stay!

                                                                    Barbara was a wonderful host. There was a little problem with the cleaning (a bed was unmade) and she immediately fixed it. Her cleaning crew came right over and not only fixed the problem but cleaned the whole condo immaculately. The weather was rough with rain most of the weekend; however, Saturday cleared up nicely and I was able to enjoy the beach with my service dog, Sylvia. Would highly recommend this condo.

Even our deck view and living area views of the beautiful waters were obstructed by eye level railings. No maid service condo is small. The building is not well cared for doors are all scratched paint.. indoor outdoor carpets are dirty.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

There are numerous very detailed pictures of the unit and the square footage of 500sq. is clearly listed in the description. There is maid service. As for your perspective of the building not being in good shape, I am very sorry you found it to be that way. The hotel is an AAA highly rated hotel and they strive for excellence. I will certainly relay your comments to the hotel management as I have no control over when they paint and clean their carpets. As for my unit, there is no carpet, all brand new tile, brand new mattresses, bedding, freshly painted and lots of time and attention has been put into trying to ensure every guest has the most comfortable stay as possible. I am available 24-7 to make sure that if there is any issue or problem I will correct it as soon as possible. I'm not able to change deck railings but I can and I am always willing to compensate and make right anything that is in my control to correct. We have always received such wonderful reviews about the spectacular views, location, comfortable unit, and amenities of the hotel. I take it very personally that you were unhappy with your stay and will certainly use your feedback to improve the stay for future guests.
