About Kerry

We both live in Charlotte, North Carolina and spend our free time in Wrightsville at our condo.

Kerry purchased this condo in 2001

Why Kerry chose Southern Coast

Our family have been coming down to Wrightsville since 1985. We would rent during the summer months and discovered the ease of being able to raise the children in a safe and fun environment. The building itself is extremely well maintained and the staff always helpful and polite.

As the pool and beach are so conveniently close and clean, it is a pleasure not to have to drive or walk to get there.

We decided to buy our unit in 2001 and in 2007 we completely renovated it and replaced all wiring and pipes. By enlarging the Master Bathroom and Kitchen it has made it spacious and comfortable.

As we still visit you will notice that it has everything needed for a short or prolonged stay.

What makes this condo unique

As we are located on the south side of the building, it offers spectacular, unobstructed views of the ocean, beach and pool.

The condominium is light, airy, and although it is a only has two bedrooms, you still get the feeling of it being spacious and comfortable.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

The description of "Picture Perfect Ocean Front Condo" is spot on! The condo itself was absolutely beautiful...completely updated, impeccably clean, beautifully decorated and well supplied with anything you need for a great vacation (linens, towels, cleaning supplies, kitchen supplies, you name it!) Kerry was wonderful to work with...I feel as though I have a new friend! Wrightsville Beach itself is a lovely, relaxing vacation spot. You can be as busy as you want to be or relax as much as you'd like. Our family will definitely be back to this unit!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Beautiful condo~great host~wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Islander for over 6 years and have always had a positive experience from the office managers Carol and Kris, the well kept property and the two owners that we've rented from. There is a feeling of community at the Islander as many of us have been staying there for years and some since its conception! Wrightsville Beach is a family oriented beach being with a small town feel yet has a healthy combination of being near the progressive and historic city of Wilmington which gives lots of opportunities to shop and dine! Definitely our beach vacation spot for life!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Noel, How fortunate were we to have you stay with us this year! You wrote such a lovely review that anyone reading it will understand how we all feel about a gem of a spot. Although the weather could have co-operated a little better, I am so glad that you had a wonderful holiday. A true native to the area :) You are so right about the feeling at the Islander. We started going there 30 years ago and just had to buy something so that we could enjoy it for a long time. My grown family love it as well and have got to know so many lovely people. Now their children play with their friends children just as they did. I hope you will return to be our guest soon. Fondly, Kerry

2nd visit to condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Islander 3E. Condo was clean, well-stocked and steps away from the beach. Easy to contact Kerry with questions. Condo staff was attentive to building needs, pool cleaning and general questions. Loved the cabana and outdoor grills. Great stay! Will definately be back again.

First of many trips to Wrightsville...and the Islander property!

  • 5 of 5

The overall property is well kept and things are taken care of quickly whether you ask or not...they just get done. Condo 3E met our full expectations & more with location, view, size, updates, and amenities included. We love being ocean front but moreso when the walk to the beach is less than 3 minutes! In addition, the quick uber rides to restaurants and entertainment was so quick & easy as it was holiday weekend and public parking was beyond tough! We hope to return again soon and will seek this property first when making reservations.

Owner's Response: Dear Jean, We loved having you as our guests too. I am so glad that you had such a wonderful time and would like to come back and stay. Also I am thrilled that you were able to get the lock fixed quickly by our trusty Mr. Fix It. He is such a plus to have on call as well as the staff at the Islander. Just knowing that my guests are well cared for while I am away, gives me such piece of mind. Looking forward to your return. Fondly, Kerry

We had a Fabulous Time at the Islander

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kerry's home at the Islander. The common area of kitchen, dining area and living room were much larger than they appear in the photos. The kitchen was well appointed and in great condition. The 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were bright and comfortable. We have stayed at many hotels and rented other condos, but nothing compares to the cleanliness of Unit 3E. We enjoyed the sunrise as well as relaxing evenings listening to the waves from the porch which is furnished like a room ! Very accommodating. Carol was fantastic and helpful. We love the Islander and Kerry's home and we can't wait to go back ! Mike and Anne
