Step into the quiet world of 2314 N. Lumina Ave

located on the northern end of Wrightsville Beach on a private cul-de-sac with no public parking, this wonderful vacation property offers ocean views along with attractive and comfortable accommodations.

Also on this level are 2 bedrooms with a Jack 'n Jill bath. One bedroom has 2 full sized beds and the other offers a queen.

On the next level is the master suite with a king bed complete with its own deck and views of the Atlantic Ocean. Around the corner is the fourth bedroom with a built in bunk style beds with 2 full mattresses. Take a walk down the open hallway overlooking the living room and with oceans views out the upper level windows, and you will find the fifth bedroom with 2 full size beds.

If you need to get away by yourself for a little while, take a book and relax in the den/tv room as you get comfortable in the inviting leather chair or stretch out on the couch and watch some TV. Just off the den is an additional deck looking out on the ocean.

The ocean views, attractive accommodations and convenient beach access just steps away. The section of the beach is perfect for delightful walks to the the north and south. The beauty and convenience will make this your favorite vacation home!

About The Owner

A husband and wife team built, own and manage this home, a true vacation rental by owner.

Our children were raised coming down to our house creating memories and family traditions.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

Why The Owner chose Shell Island

Family owned and managed property, a true vacation rental by owners. Beautiful and convenient access to the beach. This home is all one unit, not a duplex.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy walks on the beach, cooking meals for our guests, playing games, heading out to shop and eat at wonderful fine dining restaurants in nearby Wilmington. Riding bikes to the grocery store, filling our basket with snacks for our beach day. Breakfast on the deck, still in our PJ's. Walking the Wrightsville Beach loop.

Wonderful, comfortable house with everything we needed. Great space for family or friends to gather. Owner responded very quickly to any questions and the entire rental process was extremely easy. Would definitely love to come visit again.

My favorite beach in the world!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been renting Virgina's house for a decade and the renovation is really beautiful! The island is huge and plenty of seating for dining. The house is big enough for three generations to really enjoy our time together. The location is perfect; easy access to beach path- no major roads to cross and outdoor shower make coming in from the sand a breeze. Lots of parking for us and friends that stop by. We will continue to rent this house for many more years to come.

Just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and beautiful location. Perfect for our two families with kids and adults. Steps away from a beautiful beach access walk within the little neighborhood. Clean too! Would recommend some mats in bathroom for when you get out of the shower . . . Literally that's all I can think of! It was perfection!

Beautiful home / Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice house that has just been totally renovated. Beautiful home and such a quiet, nice location. Three minute walk to the beach. Life guard stand at this access with was great with 5 grandchildren. The owner was amazing to work with. Loved the open floor plan and quality furnishings. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful, spacious home with wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My team and I want to thank Virginia so much for the quality hospitality and home we stayed in over the 4th of July. The house is beautiful and has so much space to relax and spread out. Very short walk to the beach. We loved sitting out on the deck and enjoying the early mornings and evenings. The outdoor shower is top grade- I actually took all of my showers out there! Ample parking with lots of storage space in the garages. Kitchen and dining area fit a full house with space to go around. My team and I were very pleasantly surprised since we were worried we were going to feel crowded. That certainly was not the case.

Everything was communicated clearly and ahead of time, and all credit for that goes to Virginia. My only recommendation would be to stock the house with some board games since I know this house typically occupies families, and we forgot to bring our games :) We will certainly look for this house again next year. Thank you, Virginia!!
