Property description

Our condo is on a pristine stretch of beach just a short walk from the heart of town. It faces east toward beautiful sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean. You can relax or dine on the private, 6th floor balcony and enjoy the sea breeze and soothing sounds of the ocean. Watch the brown pelicans soar by and the dolphins at play. The beachfront pool and cabana/bar are perfect places to swim, sunbathe, grill out, visit with friends, and enjoy supper. The ocean is just through the pool gate and over the sand. Tennis on our court is a great way to start the day. From the quiet of The Islander you can stroll to town for a coffee, dinner, drinks, groceries, or shopping. Take a 30 minute walk in the other direction to the peaceful inlet and bird sanctuary.

Our 2 bedroom condo, with a queen bedroom that opens to the oceanfront balcony, and another bedroom with 2 twin beds, has been our family's retreat for many years. The kitchen is fully equipped. Wireless internet service is free. Two TVs. The decor is light, airy, and immaculate, with all the amenities you have at home. It's a great place to unwind.

The small town of Wrightsville Beach combines older, Carolina-style cottages with newer ones. There is very little neon, 'honky-tonk' business. Biking, kayaking, and boating are favorite pastimes in addition to the usual beach and sand fun. If you have the occasional rainy day, you will be glad! The city of Wilmington lays right across the drawbridge and is loaded with fascinating things to do. The Cape Fear River runs through downtown and the long boardwalk and historic Cotton Exchange are filled with unique boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. For culture hounds there is the Cameron Art Museum, one of the best in the Southeast. Theater, music venues, art galleries, and historic houses abound. In addition, there is a large, newish shopping center near Wrightsville, watersides, putt-putt golf, movies, and even the Cape Fear Serpentarium.

You may email me for more information but please telephone to confirm the rental, for your security and mine. Thanks.

Location

Wrightsville Beach is a cottage beach with beautiful sand and no honky-tonk businesses. The restaurants are exceptional and the people are friendly. The City of Wilmington, on the edge of the Cape Fear River, is just over the drawbridge and has an outstanding art museum, galleries, a boardwalk along the historic waterfront, more interesting restaurants, wonderful stores, and much to do on the occoasional rainy day.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has been the sole owner of the condo and has enjoyed many summers at Wrightsville. We rent 6-E during the weeks that we can not use it and hope it will be as relaxing for you as it is for us. We live in Raleigh, 2 hours away.

Why the Owner Chose Shell Island, Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA:
We love the beach. Wrightville has some of the best beaches and cleanest water on the east coast. The Islander is family-oriented, with the friendliest group of owners imaginable. The building is secure and well-maintained. The grounds are immaculate.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
In addition to all the fun beach activities, there are boat tours of the sound, kayaking, fishing trips, sailing, and more. The City of Wilmington is just a few minutes away and is known for its historic district, art galleries, music, theater, tours of the Battleship USS North Carolina and Screen Gem movie studio, riverwalk, restaurants, and lively nightlife. The NC Aquarium and Fort Fisher are less than an hour away and make unique day trips. Whether on the beach or enjoying another activity in the area, you will not forget this vacation.
