About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + extra rec room w/ 2 built in beds 2.5 bathrm(sleeps 6 - 10

The Dolphin House is the perfect Wrightsville Beach vacation experience. Dolphins frequently visit and play in your backyard-Wrightsville Sound! Just one block from the beach, this classic cottage is a paradise for family fun and relaxation. Unwind on one of the three porches, hammock, or lawn chairs while reading, observing nature, or simply taking in a spectacular Wrightsville sunset. Once you have experienced the Dolphin House you won't want to stay anywhere else. Every guest wants to return!
Overlooking Wrightsville Sound, this is a special place. The private sandy beach is a great place to play, launch one of our kayaks, swim or just chill. The ocean is only one block away so you have the absolute best of both worlds.
The house has the warmth & feel of a classic, charming Wrightsville Beach cottage but with every amenity. Guests fall in love with the light,the energy, the coziness of Dolphin House.
The master bedroom & bath are on the main floor, 1 bedroom with a double, 1 with twins, a bathroom and a rec/extra room with built in twin futons are on the lower level. In the rec room there is a tv/dvd player, game closet, foosball, extra refrigerator & outside porch.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: My children grew up enjoying this beach house. As they grew up & moved on to college we began to share this special place. We love this house and spend time here every opportunity.We have wonderful memories made here & you will too.

Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA:
My husband grew up on Wrightsville Sound & knew this was the perfect location for his family. When the property became available he lovingly restored it & we have enjoyed every minute spent here since!We are from Wrightsville Beach &knew this was the perfect location. No matter how busy or hectic a summer day is at Wrightsville Beach, when you walk out to the porch overlooking the sound, it is quiet peaceful & absolutely stunning. Watching the tide rise & fall & expose all of its beauty is an extraordinary experience. Rise early & walk the beach, go for a bike ride, a kayak excursion or walk the loop - its all right here. Peaceful & serene but plenty of activity.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy everything this location has to offer: swimming, surfing, kayaking, observing nature, reading, walking on the beach or loop,tennis at WB Park,biking,great meals at sunset on the outside porch, walking or biking downtown WB for an evening ice cream - its all so convenient & great fun
