About Paula Turner

We are Mark and Paula Turner. Mark custom built this house for our family in 2005. We have enjoyed having many wonderful large family gatherings here in our home as well as opening our doors for family and friends visiting from out of town. When you live at Wrightsville Beach everyone wants to come and visit. It is our little slice of Paradise. Everything we need is within walking or biking distance from the house. The sunsets are breath taking. We walk this beautiful beach almost every morning.

Paula Turner purchased this house in 2005

Why Paula Turner chose South Harbor Island

Pristine beaches, safety, great restaurants, self contained community. Outdoor water sports, boating, surfing, fishing, skiing, wakeboarding, kite boarding, diving, snorkeling you name it. If you can do it on the water you can do it here. Close proximity to Mayfaire Town Center, a mega shopping development. Only 15 minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington and the Riverfront.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, living on the marsh, lush tropical landscaping, enjoying the abundant wildlife, especially the birds. Being able to kayak or canoe from your backyard to the waterways, sounds and even the ocean. Open floor plan with triple doors off the main living area. These triple doors open up allowing the outside living area and the inside living area to become one, giving the house an open airy tropical Caribbean feel. Please note that this private home is in a quite residential neighborhood and does not allow party events to be held here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely wonderful time in your gorgeous home! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. It made our family vacation just that much more special! Thanks again.

Car: not necessary

Our home sits on a tidal marsh. This means at medium to high tide you can launch a non motorized water craft, (kayak, canoe, paddle board, etc.) from the backyard. This water will access the waterways, sounds and even the ocean. At low tide there is a Public Access 1 block from our home. At this Public Access you can launch and retrieve unmotorized water craft at any tide at any time of the day or night. I have included a picture of the Access in our photos.

Great Weekend with the Boys

  • 5 of 5

Just completed a very successful reunion weekend with 8 High School buddies. The accommodations were perfect for our purposes. Loved the location--easy walk to the beach. We had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy several meals on the back porch. Couldn't be happier.

Splendid house, rooms to roam in. Quiet neighborhood. Convenient location to amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 11 adults with 4 children age 10 and younger. This house has the right number of rooms and common space to keep everyone comfortable and happy. The beds are all great- everyone had a good night's sleep. Plenty of closet space and spare blankets and pillows. No one complained about a lack of hot water. The HVAC kept the house temperature right. The kitchen is large and has every appliance and aid that you need. Two refrigerator/freezers. There is plenty of space to spread out. You can have a formal meal in the dining room or can dine casually out on the spacious back deck. There are private deck areas off two of the bedrooms. My son found private areas in which to study quietly.

The location is also superior. It was a short walk to the beach itself or to the Wrightsville Beach attractions and restaurants. US 76 is adjacent, so you can quickly drive to other surrounding venues. The proprietors are easy to contact and thorough in their instructions. All of our transactions were handled quickly. They are polite and helpful. If you are considering a house to rent in this area, I can wholeheartedly recommend 201 Coral Ave and the Turners.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home and location. We recently stayed for a long weekend for a wedding being held in Wilmington. The location to the beach (walkable) and to Wilmington was ideal. We so appreciate the hospitality of the owners both before and during the stay.

Lovely home with plenty of space for leisure

  • 5 of 5

We rented Paula & Mark's home for the long weekend of our youngest daughter's wedding. It was perfect to have extended family from NC & NY stay with us and enjoy the time together. Your home is lovely and well appointed and we will definitely recommend your property to others.

Thank you !

Wonderful week at Wrightsville Beach

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a great week in Wrightsville Beach. We chose this very large house to accommodate family members coming in for our daughters wedding. It was the perfect spot. Close to the beach, close to many fine restaurants, close to shopping, and if you needed something more, it is minutes from all that Wilmington has to offer. The beautiful, very large, deck was perfect for outdoor dining, the kitchen is massive, bedrooms are spacious and there are plenty of bathrooms to go around.

Our family certainly enjoyed being together but not on top of each other. My brother and I liked the heated games of ping pong the best! Who has a ping ping table anymore? Now I want one! One of my best vacations ever!

Paula and Mark are always available to help and answer your questions. Best hosts around! Thanks guys, you rock!
