About Kristen Grant

Our beach home is owned by three sisters. Mrs. Mashburn, who is one of the owners, is a real estate agent and NC Broker with her family’s real estate company, Wellons Enterprises, Inc. The 3 sisters’ father, Calvin G. Wellons, and their mother, who is now 89, bought the beach house in 1987, so they could have a place for the whole family to gather and enjoy spending time together. The family of Calvin G. Wellons has grown immensely throughout the years. In addition to the four daughters, there are now 13 grandchildren (not including their spouses) and 14 great-grandchildren. Each year during the week of July 4th, the entire family gathers together to have fun and make lasting memories.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of women thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room to spread out and we were impressed with the large size of most of the bedrooms. The kitchen was well-stocked. The multiple porches came in handy on the day it rained. One remark heard over and over was how sound-proof this house was compared to others we have stayed in on our annual trips. This was the only house we all agreed we would like to book again in the future.

What a great way to end our summer!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as it's shown online. We had a mini family reunion and the home accommodated us perfectly. The beds were comfortable and the home was clean. The ocean front viewing was an amazing way to begin our day. The beach was very clean and fun to walk. Kristen was a great help throughout the entire booking process and prompt to answer all my questions. Can't wait to come back again!

Loved...loved...loved this house. Perfectly accommodated all 8 of us. Beautiful ocean view from back sun rooms and deck. Enjoyed our little private access to beach. Outdoor enclosed shower was perfect for cleaning up after day at beach. Beds were comfy and kitchen was well stocked. Fun family vacation.

My husband and I have always vacationed at the Crystal Coast, but this year we decided to coordinate with some of our friends to have a "couples retreat." This home was absolutely perfect! Plenty of room for each couple to have their own space and lots of places for us to sit and relax with our friends. It is so convenient to everything, and we look forward to visiting again!
