About Fran Rudolph

We love Wrightsville Beach, so much so that we've made it our home. The minute we cross the drawbridge on our way back from Wilmington (the big city), we leave all worries behind. Almost daily, we either walk the beach at low tide, or when it's high tide, we walk the 3.5 mile 'loop' around the center of Wrightsville Beach. We also love to take morning kayak padddles through the tidal creeks - you can't imagine the quiet or the thrill of coming upon a flock of roosting Ibis, egrets or herons - and rake a few clams for dinner. For a bit more excitement, my husband heads to the beach to catch some waves, sometimes even alongside a family of dolphins. And if you have any trouble or are looking for a restaurant, museum or babysitter recommendation, you don't have to go far - we live on the 2nd floor!

Fran Rudolph purchased this apartment in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! We could not have asked for a better location. Getting to use the kayaks and bikes was an awesome plus! We will definitely be back and look up your place to stay!

This was perfect for us. We are a family of four with two boys who are ages two and five. We parked our car in the covered parking next to the front door when we arrived, and did not get in it again until we left. I really liked that we were able to easily walk to the beach because I hate the mess of having wet, sandy toddlers and toys getting in and out of the car. We were also able to walk to dinner easily with a stroller. The location is perfect in that regard. It's also on a very quiet residential street with barely any traffic so I didn't worry when the boys were in the driveway and there was no traffic noise.

The fenced yard was lovely. We enjoyed the hammock, picnic table, grill and deck chairs. After a day at the beach we were all able to fit comfortably in the large outdoor shower to wash the little ones without having to track sand into the house and bath tub. We enjoyed all of the extras that come with this house - the beach toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, the wagon to haul your gear, my husband surfed and we went out on the kayaks twice. It was great to be able to pull the kayak a few hundred yards and put in easily. No need to load it up or go to a dock.

The interior of the home was beautifully decorated and very clean. I was a little worried about white furniture and toddlers, so Fran gave us some sheets to cover them with so I didn't have to be stressed about that. Our queen sized bed was comfortable and the boys slept well in their own room. So much better than a hotel where you are all in one room together! As a matter of fact, don't even consider a hotel or a condo with people above and below you. Stay here. It's private, quiet and all of the extras more than make up for the tiny bit more you may pay.

Fran was lovely, helpful and kind. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful beachy paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This home was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the full kitchen and grill and the relaxed beachy atmosphere. Fran was very welcoming and provided us all the information we needed to find our way to all the best places in the area. If it had been warmer we would have loved to get out in the kayaks, but we did enjoy exploring by the bicycles provided. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
