Wonderful Winter Escape to Wrightsville Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this property to relax, read and ring in the New Year--and, oh, yes--celebrate 38 years of marriage! Thad is superb in every respect. His emails were timely and thorough and he even included his favorite restaurants and points of interest to assist us in planning our stay. The condo does NOT disappoint--the king bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked and we especially liked the two sinks in the large bathroom. Shell Island Resort is located at the north end of Wrightsville Beach and is the last structure on that end of the beach. Beautiful views of Figure Eight Island can be seen from the balcony and you can stroll down the beach and see the island's beautiful homes. A walk to the famous Johnnie Mercer pier is a must! We were very fortunate in that the weather was unseasonably warm--in the high 60s and low 70s which made for lots of time spent walking on the beach. The dolphins put on quite a show the first day we arrived! Wilmington is a short 10-minute drive back over the bridge and there is everything imaginable to do there as well--shopping, restaurants, the arts, etc. Our daughter and her husband lived in Wilmington for five years so this trip was simply to go off the grid and soak up the beauty and tranquility provided by the coast. We were not disappointed and have already marked our calendars to return again to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. Thad, we will be in touch soon to reserve our 2017 dates!

Stunning views!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo! The oceanfront views are absolutely wonderful. Thad, the owner is extremely nice and helpful and the staff at Shell Island was very accommodating. We would definitely consider a return visit.

Most wonderful beach location

  • 5 of 5

This was a dream come true for us. Could not rate what was better..Thad, the owner, who was always present in our planning, imparting useful information about the area and restaurants, and obviously seriously interested in our enjoying the condo and our stay ….or the absolutely gorgeous view. Both would receive an A+ from us. We were actually right on the Atlantic and felt as though we were part of the beach scene. This included a beach wedding, surfers, volleyball games, swimmers, so many dogs and their owners/walkers. The condo was spotless, the bed more comfortable than ours at home, the bathrooms were clean and fully equipped, the refrigerator so large….mainly it housed our leftovers and bottled water. We could have easily stayed for another week as we tended to relax more each day we were there…..and to enjoy even more of the restaurants suggested by Thad. We did our best though. My husband is wheelchair bound and he was initially reluctant to travel and change the routine. As we were driving out of Wrightsville Beach he said, "thank you for planning this. It has been a fantastic and much needed mini vacation." Thank YOU, Thad, for being who you are and for helping us in every way. We will be back!

Great Condo, location, and beautiful sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in mid September and this was our first trip to Wrightsville Beach. The condo was perfect for the two of us. The location was nice, quiet, and secluded, but anything you could want or need was just a short car ride away. The view from the condo are spectacular since you are surrounded by water. Caught some breathtaking sunsets. Nicely remodeled and you can't be the location on the beach. We ate dinner one night at the on sight restaurant and the food was tasty. They also had a acoustic musician playing. Very nice stay.

Great condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed a wonderful vacation in this awesome condo located on the best part of Wrightsville Beach. Just a few of the great things about this condo are that it is very clean, the kitchen has nice appliances including a large refrigerator with icemaker, the shower is perfect especially because it has the hose feature that allows you to do a quick rinse off when you come in from the beach, the view is incredible, there is a decent restaurant on site that serves food all day and parking is not a problem (we've found it to be tight at other places during busy season). We were very comfortable for our week long stay. And the really wonderful thing about this condo is that you will be enjoying the best section of Wrightsville Beach! It is less crowded and you can start walking and almost feel like you have the beach to yourself. We take beautiful pictures that have no people in the background in the middle of summer! Since my family enjoys swimming in the ocean, we appreciate that there are lifeguards on duty every day during the summer season. Also, Thad is the best! He will take good care of you and you will feel like it is very important to him that you have a good experience when you're staying in his condo. You will not be disappointed! Thank you, Thad!
