About the property

4 Bedroom cottage + two separate den/living areas , 3 baths, rooftop sunset view

The property is situated in a family neighborhood, primarily year-round or weekend owners. It's just off the beach, however secluded from beach traffic. Stroll anytime, amazing sunsets over the water daily. Watch porpoises frolicking in the lollipop bays or in the ocean while out on your morning, afternoon, or evening strolls.

Walking or biking distance from anything you'd want or need. Park the car under the house and no need to move it till you're ready to drive back across the bridge leaving paradise. Beautifully landscaped, this property provides a casually comforted lifestyle.

Come do as you please, it's your schedule. Enjoy!

About Neal & Stephanie Sumner

The Sumner Family is a family of four. We have a home in North Raleigh, and one in Wrightsville Beach. We love and work in Raleigh, but our hearts look forward to getting down to Wrightsville! I've surfed all my life and still do at 50. We're active in soccer, tennis, mountain biking and education while in Raleigh, but once we hit the's all about the clear, blue-green Caribbean water in Wrightsville and everything it has to offer, only two hours away.

Please note of our 'guest's' reviews.

Neal & Stephanie Sumner purchased this house in 2007

Why Neal & Stephanie Sumner chose Parmele Isle

Wrightsville Beach is two hours door to door from our home in Raleigh. We can sneak out of Raleigh around 4 pm on any Friday, and be in paradise at our cottage by six. Have dinner on the beach, as the sun is setting, almost year round as the climate is generally great. Then there's the Surf, some of the best conditions can come together around Wrightsville hidden gems to rival many of the best know breaks around the globe. The water is Caribbean clemore often than not, as Wrightsville is one of the few Northern facing beaches, and our coast line is constantly surrounded by only natural sea water, and not mixed with fresh waters from the rivers run-off. Our daughter was three years old before she ever experienced waters at other beaches besides Wrightsville crystal clear tide pools. We went for a family reunion, in our neighboring state. As she and I were sitting together in the tidal pools down south watching all our family run around, she quietly looked up at me and said daddy, is this coffee were sitting in! At that point, well actually way before, I knew Wrightsville Beach was even more special in ways it's difficult to tell. It's simply the experience one get when soaking up this quiet little Island we love so. So bring the snorkel, or simply stroll between our two lolli-pop bays, most all the waters around are Caribbean clear. Explore the full 3 miles of the island, with hidden jewels like our neighborhood With water views every way you turn on our special peninsula & connecting the lollipop bays. Evening Picnicing on the beach, beautiful sunsets early mornings in clean surf. Good day Wrightsville, good day sunshine, where clear waters tidepools abound. Explore, the wild life where porposes often frolic in the (2) neighborhood bays On this three mile island water views with beaches every way you look, Wrightsville Beaches year round Caribbean clear waters provide for a fun surf *Water/tide pools crystal clear! *3 miles of great beaches! *Good restaurants

What makes this house unique

All listed above, with great restaurants to enjoy, many favorites within walking distance to enjoy what Wrightsville and our cottage can offer.

Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Stephanie and Neal provided all the comforts of home in their beautiful Wrightsville Beach house. The house can accommodate a large group and has comfortable furniture inside and out. The beach is within a 5 minute walk and the house is in a quiet, safe location. We enjoyed our stay but it was too short!

A perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this house to any family looking to spend time together & have the best of both worlds.....the bay down the block for paddle boarding, kayaking, dog swimming......the crystal clear blue green ocean one block away. We spend every night on the deck outside & enjoyed the spacious open floor plan. We will definitely be back:)

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the beautiful beach house for my son's wedding. This house was everything we needed to make our week just perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone. We were a short walk to the beach. There were chairs for us to take with us. There is plenty of parking! We felt very much at home. The owners were wonderful! They were very helpful with all our needs! We will be back! Val

Nestled Quietly Between Two Lollipop Bays, in Wrightsville Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas holiday and it was beautiful! The outside of the house was decorated with wreaths and white lights that made the place look magical! We were not sure if we would have a Christmas tree because I drive a small car and had no room to bring one, but when we arrived and entered the house we saw 3 trees! We were very touched! The house was perfect for my family and we felt very comfortable. We had a couple of hiccups that were addressed very quickly and put right so nothing put a damper on our stay! Thank you for making this time a magical memory for my boys and me!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! Very open, bright, airy, plenty of space for a large family to make wonderful memories! Close enough to the beach...only about a 5 minute walk across the street. Located within a neighborhood so was quiet...we enjoyed sitting on either deck on the house and grilling out! The owners supply towels and necessities and everything was clean and well-kept upon arrival. We were also allowed to bring our two dogs which was lovely. We will be back!!
