SUPER SUNSETS!! SOUNDFRONT CONDO (FIRST FLOOR) ON WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH - Availability now.
2 Bed, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4
This condo was remodeled in 2016/2017. It's a 2 bedroom, 1 bath (small) condo, of 768 sq ft. We have large screen tvs, with cable in the den, and smart tvs in the bedrooms where you can use your own Netflix or Hulu accounts.
This lower unit sits directly across the street from Banks Channel, boasts incredible sound views and evening sunsets!!
The beach access is behind the condo, and across the street. You can watch the sunrise from the beach, and the sunset from your Condo, or from the private dock across the street.
You have access to a mini-beach (during low tide) where you can sit on the beach by the dock, and relax in a quiet, non-busy atmosphere. You can also just sit on the dock and enjoy the views!! If you want to rent a paddleboard for the day, there are 2 rentals close by - one just a block over and the other about .5 miles down the street. You can put your paddleboard into the water right on the mini-beach. It cannot be any simpler.
You can rent body boards, surfboards or paddle boards one block over at South End Surf Shop. You can take any numerous water cruises from Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours, just about .5 mile down the road. You can rent bicycles from Aussie Island about 1 mile down the road.
There are numerous restaurants, bars, shops on and around the island. The Oceanic Restaurant is behind the condo and across the street. It is oceanfront, and hosts music every Wednesday and Friday nights during the summer.
BlueWater Grill has a large crowd for live music on Sunday afternoons during the summer, and it sits on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Walking/biking distance to restaurants and bars.
Occupancy: 4. No Smoking. No Pets.
Parking - you'll enjoy 1 dedicated parking space, as well as 1 guest parking space on a first come, first serve basis. There is also street parking, but this comes at a price of $2.50/hour on the beach.
There is also an outdoor shower just to rinse off yourself or your chairs/boards. There is also a clothes line to hang all towels and bathing suits after your day at the beach. It's located just behind your parking.
If you love to walk, the primary bars are about 1 mile down the road, with restaurants located as close as 1 block behind you (Oceanic and Sandwich Shop), and up to the opposite end of the beach (about 3.3 miles to Shell Island).
The Oceanic is located just behind the Condo, so you can walk over and back. They have live music on Wednesdays and Fridays during the summer, so you can either listen to the band inside of the restaurant, or sometimes you can just listen from your beach chair on the beach!
You can also rent bikes or boards at Aussie Island, boards at Sound End Surf Shop, or paddleboards at Blockade Runner.
Sunset Cruises can be taken from the Blockade Runner as well.
If you want to exercise, Wrightsville Beach is famous for The Loop. This is a loop around the center of the island, and is about 2.75 miles. It's 1 mile from the Condo, so it could be your 5 mile run. If you walk out the back side of the condo, you can take the back streets and miss almost all of the traffic.
For a shorter walk, you can take the back side of the condo and walk to the sound end of the beach. This is roughly 1.3 miles roundtrip.
The beach is all about relaxing a simple life - we hope you enjoy!!
This is a quiet condo complex of 12 units. Most are only around on the weekends, so it's not too busy.
As noted though, the traffic on the beach during the summer time is hectic, so traffic coming and going, and fighting for public parking, is to be expected
Sound End Surf Shop is about the same walk. Their website also hosts live beach cams and surf reports. There is also a place above the Surf Shop with pre-made sandwiches, chips, coffee, smoothies, wine and beer.
South Beach Grill and The Blockade Runner Resort are .5 to 1.0 mile down the street. They offer dining at both, and the Resort offers Cruises and rentals as well. It's recommended to cut through behind the condo to walk on the back streets which have sidewalks and much less traffic.
Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort hosts lunch on the veranda with an ocean view, and music every Friday night. About 3 miles from the condo.
BlueWater Grill (on the Intracoastal) holds Sunday afternoon celebrations with live music.
Wrightsville Beach Park has tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball and a playground. They also have fitness classes on a pay per schedule basis, as well as offer the following:
Concert series in the Park from June 15 through August 3rd on Thursday nights.
Farmers Market every Monday from 8am - 1pm from May 15th through October 30th. Free parking in the field during this event.
Lumina Station which is just over the bridge offers a variety of shops and restaurants.
Other things to note: Weekends are quite busy at this time (May - August), so if you're coming or going from the beach during the day time, please expect delays.
