Great restaurants and Robert's Grocery are within a stone's throw, as well as Johnny Mercer's pier for some fishing. You will find this location central to all things Wrightsville Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Crimora,

I just wanted to write and thank you for our wonderful week at Wrightsville Beach in your delightful, peaceful, lovely house on East Oxford Street.

We had such a relaxing time - with great weather, and we very much enjoyed sitting on your sweet front porch every morning (with coffee) and every late afternoon.

You are so kind to share your house and allow people like us - who are craving both solitude and joyful beach time - to slip easily into such a wonderful home for a week of rest.

It could not have been more pleasant or more convenient. It definitely reminded me of the many summers that our family spent at Wrightsville, as your house has that wonderful old-time feel.

The updates on your historic home are fantastic... beautiful panelling, great bathrooms and modern kitchen. It is totally perfect.

Thank you so much again for allowing us to stay in your Wrightsville home. It may have been our best, most relaxing vacation ever! (We cried in the car on the way home.)

Best to you,

C.G.and R.G

Durham, NC

p.s. And, the key pick-up & drop-off was easy, with a good information packet. Friendly and helpful folks! The house was very well-cleaned and ready for us.

Classic cottage with modern conveniences

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! This is a classic Wrightsville Beach cottage with old-time feel and modern conveniences! There's a both a great wrap-around porch plus a screened porch with outdoor seating, a large cozy living room, and a great large dining table with a big bench seat for the kids. The kitchen is up to date, and the bedrooms are nice and comfortable. Just a quick walk down the street and you are on the beach.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in three years so clearly we like it! Property is as described, convenient to everything, lots of parking, so comfortable. This year we used the linen service and thought it was well worth it. Beds were made (yay) and sheets and towels were of excellent quality. Crimora was very helpful and responsive.

Lovely beach house, terrific location.

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is lovely. Great proximity to the beach and able to walk or bike everywhere -- little grocery, some restaurants and bars nearby. The house had all necessary items. The front porch was enjoyed by all and appreciated everything was on one level for grandparents. Crimora was very responsive throughout our booking process and questions we had prior to arriving.

This was a great house!

WE loved this classic beach house. Large front porch, large fenced in back yard, lots of beach equipment provided, very adaquate kitchen, large table for family dinners, old style but had every modern convenience we needed. Very close to the Pier, the Loop, the playgrounds, the beach! Wonderful family times! And it was very easy dealing with Crimora Carter, very responsive. Thanks for a wonderful each week!

The property looked weathered on the outside with not much landscaping little grass mostly sand.

  • 3 of 5

The house was nicely decorated and the living and dining rooms were spacious. It was clean and the linens and towels were provided by a service. I didn't like putting all the towels and taking the sheets off the beds of four bedrooms (6 beds).That wasn't stated on the website. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked with useable items for cooking. We arrived on Friday July 7 and on Monday July 10 there was a storm with lots of rain and the ceiling in the dining room leaked in three places. We used containers to catch the water. I contacted the owner and she immediately tried to get a roofer but that didn't happen during our stay. She compensated me for the inconvenience but it was still on our minds in the event we would have another heavy rainfall. The bicycles advertised - one of them was not in working condition. The beach cart and chairs were a plus. The lock box with a simple code was great. It was convenient to the beach that was only a few houses down the street and an easy walk to restaurants and stores. There was rust in the hall bathroom in the tub and the sink was very small.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your detailed feedback on our house. It was unfortunate that the strong summer thunderstorms that week created a hiccup with your vacation, but thankfully the forecast held for the rest of the week and we were able to schedule the roofer on the day you checked out to minimize the impact on your vacation and solve the issue for future guests. I'll make sure to note the linen checkout process for future guests as well.
