About Gloria Gunther

Hi, I am Gloria Gunther, owner of 'Seas the Moment' (10B Mallard St., Wrightsville Beach)! I purchased the townhouse in 1995 to have as a 'get-away' from work and life's everyday stresses. Perfect for the working professional or the person who just loves the beach & ocean & wants to relax and enjoy all that Wrightsville Beach & the Wilmington area have to offer. As I have always said, 'when I cross that bridge I feel like I've arrived'. I hope you'll enjoy Seas the Moment as much as I have over the years-

So close!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gloria's place was fantastic! It is a lovely little duplex that is right on the beach, with wonderful views of the sunrise and two floors of windows to enjoy watching the waves. We really appreciated the easy beach access with our 10 month old and all the gear that entails with a little one going to the beach. We also enjoyed renting bikes and going to restaurants and parks on the beach!

Owner's Response: No more dragging beach paraphernalia for long distances to get to the beach. Access is right in front of 'Seas the Moment'! Great for families with children for easy in-easy out lunch & potty breaks and with a large semi-private outdoor shower. Come try it'll come back :) 'Seas the Moment' specializes in satisfied guests.

Perfect Ocean Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this property to anyone. We rented this property because working with an owner versus a property manager is priceless. Working with Gloria made our visit exceptional. She is extremely hospitable as well as very professional. Everything in the house is new and squeaky clean. We loved the master suite for its spacious layout, king bed, and loveseat facing the breathtaking sunrise over the ocean. The home is SUPER kid friendly. There is even a baby gate in the closet ;-) We enjoyed the use of the beach toys and not having far to tote them! The home has plenty of room and three full bathrooms which is very nice. We enjoyed the outdoor shower & hose. The clothes line also came in very handy! The beach access couldn't be any closer! This home is literally the closest home to the access point. You will find this area of the beach is quiet with a family atmosphere. There was an abundance of kitchen ware and dining ware all in excellent condition. We really enjoyed our stay and again really appreciate Gloria's hospitality !

Owner's Response: Keeping 'Seas the Moment' updated and fresh is my passion! I love it when guests appreciate all the effort that goes into keeping it that way. And families with children love the close beach access. Perfect location for walking on the beach, fishing at Johnnie Mercer's Pier or just chilling out on the ocean front deck watching the waves come in. I love walking on the beach to the north end of the island, which is approximately 3 miles round trip. A perfect way to start the day with great exercise, shell hunting, watching surfers or paddle boarders along the Atlantic Ocean. Talking about 'mindfulness' to soothe the soul, this is the perfect place to practice it-

We keep returning

  • 5 of 5

Two senior citizen couples (seasoned travelers and good friends) just completed our ninth or tenth trip to Seas the Moment. Beautiful home, excellent location, charming and professional owner - this is our "go-to" beach vacation when we want to get away from it all. Gloria's "picks" of local restaurants are always up-to-date and accurate, resulting in some memorable meals. Even though it seems perfect on each visit, Gloria has continued to improve and upgrade this home over the many years we have been renting. God willing, we will be back!

Owner's Response: 'Seas the Moment' is the perfect location for your vacation! Plus with new art & a new 'crystal clear' ocean front Master bedroom window you'll want to keep coming back! Only about 4 blocks from "the Loop", a wonderful walking or jogging trail around the island, where you can visit the Wrightsville Beach (WB) Museum of History, Harbor Way Gardens, tennis courts, stop off at Johnnie Mercer's Pier or visit the Spring-Fall Farmers Market, it doesn't get any better than this. Outdoor concerts are held during the summer In WB municipal park. Airlie Gardens, a gorgeous garden designed in the early 1900's with plants for all seasons, is a short drive away, where there are summer concerts, & various art exhibits through the year. So many things to do at your fingertips and lots of shopping & great restaurants close by. Once you visit WB, you'll want to return!

Perfect location, great house, responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and 1 child) just returned from our first family beach vacation! We stayed a week at "Seas the Moment" and it was great. The location was perfect for days on the beach. Just a few steps back and forth. Great ocean views from the deck and the master bedroom. Lots of room in the house. We never felt crowded. Every room was very clean, organized, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, glasses, appliances,etc. You will have to provide your own paper products to include trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. No linens are provided. We rented ours from Seaside Linen Company. The items were delivered to the property before we arrived and we left them at the property for pickup after we left.

The owner, Gloria, is very responsive to any issues that may arise and will provide you with all the information necessary before you arrive. Wrightsville Beach had the calmness we were seeking, but was close enough to restaurants and popular attractions. We also felt very safe there. One thing to be aware of is that the property is on the dead end of Mallard Street. Because there is a public beach entrance just outside the property, people were constantly turning around on the private road in front of the house. It was not a problem, just something to be aware of.

We had a wonderful lunch at Sweet and Savory Cafe. The crab cake sandwich and reuben were great. There is a Harris Teeter grocery store (very large) just minutes from the property. They should have anything you need.

We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Beach access right in front of the town home makes it easy for families with small children and people of all ages! (No loading beach paraphernalia long distances to and from-) Steps away for lunches, bathroom breaks, etc. And now with a brand new (large) ocean front window in the Master bedroom suite you can enjoy a 'crystal clear' view from the top floor. Perfect view to wake up to or enjoy while you read a book in the sitting area in your private suite!

Our first beach vacation was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

After having spent many summer vacations in Wrightsville Beach when I was a kid, my husband and I knew it would be a great place to bring our boys: 10, 8 and 7. A quick house search led us to Seas the Moment. The pictures caught our eye, the location seemed just right, but the reviews sealed the deal! And once we arrived, we quickly learned that all the gleaming reviews were right on. The rental was steps from the beach, clean, updated, roomy, comfy, well stocked and pretty much set the tone for our perfect vacation!

Our favorites in the house: The outdoor shower! The basket of pamphlets of area attractions. A king-sized bed! The pancake griddle! The washer and dryer. The little gargoyle by the stairs. The Nest thermostat - pretty sure we will have to get one now. The orange and pink drinking goblets - the boys used them every day. The perfect toaster - ours at home only warms the bread! The short walk to the beach. The view from the master bedroom. The deck. The quiet street.

Our favorites around town: Grabbing our daily coffee at The Workshop and meeting the very sweet, megaladon-tooth collecting owner! South Beach Grill and Moe's Barbecue. Seaside Linen Rental. Sean's Private Surf Lessons. A near-by Whole Foods. The USS North Carolina. The Serpetarium. Coastal Urge.

We also drove a bit to grab the Bald Head Island ferry and rented a golf cart to scoot around in - which was very awesome. And we rented kayaks and stand-up paddleboards from the very nice guys at Wrightsville SUP - which was a bit less than awesome. The SUP place was great, but when 3 small children get tired and there are only 2 parents to tow them back against the current, things can get tricky! Lesson learned!

Last but not least, Gloria made the whole rental process very accommodating and personal. She checked in with us to make sure we knew just what to expect and emailed us a great list of activities and area restaurants which we used heavily!

Big thanks to Gloria and Seas the Moment for making our first trip to the beach just what we needed!

Owner's Response: For a guest to say it was their "perfect vacation" there is no greater compliment! Helping guests have that ultimate experience while at 'Seas the Moment' makes my day! It is a totally updated town home and in a premier location. With so many amenities in the area, Wrightsville Beach is the perfect choice all year round. In addition to summer rentals it is available from Labor Day through the Spring. Also, families enjoy time here on holidays, including family gatherings at Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. There are loads of things to do in the Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington area!
