8th floor, direct oceanfront, one bedroom, spa style bath, elegant renovation
About Jay Tervo
I publish online city guides, and my wife is a concert pianist. We have traveled quite a bit in lots of countries, and those travels influenced what we were going for when we renovated our unit a couple of years ago. Frankly, we kind of went temporarily insane. We really went for it. We decided if we were going to go to the trouble of renovating our unit, we might as well make it memorable. We hired an amazing interior decorator who came up with a unique and exciting design, and skilled craftsmen to do the work. Floor to ceiling mirrors make our unit seem as huge as our view of the ocean. We combined the two small bathrooms into one large, travertine marble masterpiece of a bath. Sliding glass and pocket doors make our unit memorable in all respects. You will love the 2-way mirror, allowing a view of the ocean from the bathroom. Makes everyone smile.....
Jay Tervo purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Jay Tervo chose Shell Island
Wrightsville Beach is a treasure -- miles and miles of white sand beaches on a beautiful, non-commercialized island. Shell Island is the last building on the northern end of the island, adjacent to a bird sanctuary. Beach walkers LOVE Wrightsville Beach. Wilmington is a quick 10 minute drive away, and there one will find lots of attractions, fine restaurants and shopping galore.
What makes this Condo unique
Our unit has been the wedding suite of choice for the staff at Shell Island. They call our suite the 'Travolta Suite', named after a recent guest who selected our unit over all the rest of the units in the building. Opera star Jessye Norman loved our unit as well - but the our marble bath is so cool, everyone tends to sing there, at least in the shower.... Our unit is far and away the finest unit at Shell Island. Shell Island has two levels, standard and premier. Ours is a 'Premier unit on Steroids'. Proof is that our's was the highest grossing unit last year. Why? Because once you stay there, you will want to keep asking for Unit 803 By The Sea! We are high on the 8th floor, and the view is spectacular. Shell Island recently underwent a $10,000,000 renovation, and it looks fabulous, too.

Wonderful ocean view!
We enjoyed our short stay this week. The oceanfront view is wonderful and you can see for miles. The condo is beautifully decorated, and every detail thought out to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
Beautiful views and great for a couple to get away! Too bad the indoor pool was being remodeled, that’s one reason I chose the resort at this time of the year. The beach was lovely though
Title says all
Only bad thing was having to leave.
We really enjoyed our stay at this fabulous property. Perfect size for two..easy access to the beach with a beautiful view..inside was well done and beautifully decorated..Will definitely stay there again!!
Fabulous Weekend Stay
We had a fabulous weekend at this unit. The owners were extremely organized, efficient and we really enjoyed the beautiful ocean view and the convenience the property provided. Loved the very modern look of the unit.
Battleship North Carolina, the North Carolina Aquarium, Cape Fear Museum, and lots of great restaurants and shopping are a short drive.
