Property description

Shell Island Unit 803 sets the standard other owners at this resort have aspired to. This modern boutique suite redefines luxury rental on the white sands of Wrightsville Beach. The Insiderinfo.us Corporate Suite offers cutting edge style and European elegance. The perfect condo for travelers, beachcombers or romantics who desire a soothing, refined environment to get away from it all.

Modern fixtures set the tone for this designer condo located at the Wrightsville Beach’s undeveloped north end. Travertine marble flooring and bath, custom cherry cabinetry and luscious black granite counters lend an understated elegance. Surround yourself with luxurious comfort in this elegant sanctuary by the sea.

NOTE: Shell Island Resort will be undergoing a renovation of our parking garage from 9/19-10/28 (Mon-Fri only from 8am-6pm) and 10/31-12/30 (Mon-Sat only from 8am-6pm, excluding 11/24-27 & 12/24-25). You should know, however, that our Unit is at the opposite side of the building as the parking garage, and on-site parking will still be available to you. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns. Jay 910-208-0803 c

  • Built-in king sized bed, with sliding glass doors to amazing bathroom. We have so many positive comments on how comfortable our mattress is! The couch is a sleeper sofa and was new in Oct 2016.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: 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.....

Why the Owner Chose Shell Island, Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
