We have lived in Raleigh, NC, for 30 years, although I originated in Washington, DC, and my husband in North Dakota, combining a military family and an academia family. We both went to school here in NC at UNC-CH and NCSU.

We love WB for its family-friendly atmosphere and because many of our favorite things to do here are within walking distance, and it's only 2 hrs away from where we live in Raleigh. Our cottage is located in the heart of the island, 2 blocks from recently restored Johnny Mercer's Pier where you can pick up Sunday papers. Our 2 daughters grew up spending summers here and have many fond memories of time spent with friends and family.
Our cottage was built in 1939 and has the charm and coziness of an older cottage--good bones, you might say. The sunrises, sunsets and breezes on the porch are soothing, as are the birds chirping in the eucalyptus tree and Chinese Elm outback. Breezes from the ocean and the sound flow through, lulling guests to calm, peace, connectedness.
We loved staying here! The cottage is within walking distance of Robert's, the local grocery store, i e cream, and the famous Trolley Stop. There were 6 of us (including two huge teenage boys) and we had plenty of space to hang out after long days at the beach. The kids kept saying how much they loved Wrightsville and this cottage.
The beach is a very short 2-3 minute walk and the sound is just a few houses away. It is very safe for kids to walk back and forth as the only road to cross is Lumina Ave. Drivers are very considerate of pedestrians and always stop for them to cross. It is the perfect spot for families.
Wrightsville is the perfect beach destination if you are looking for a true beach vacation without 1000's of people, huge resorts, traffic, etc. We loved the relaxing feel of the island.
The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed for our stay.
We are already picking our week for next summer to stay here!!
Our family of 4 had a wonderful time at this perfectly charming coastal cottage! The house was cheerful, bright and clean. The location was so close to the beach it was easy to pop back for refreshments. Great amenities...the front porch and swing to enjoy the beach breeze and convenient outdoor shower and laundry room were perfect! Thank you Irene!
We had a wonderful visit and this little house was pretty great. Exactly as advertised and a wonderful location. Beds were comfortable and the amenities were good. I do think it would benefit from a basic kitchen redo and more kitchen accoutrements, and some updating of the porch, but it was overall a good stay. Loved being close to the Sound and a quick walk to the beach. Also loved having bikes to use!
Irene was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions, too!
My family spent 7 nights here attending a family reunion and having a beach mini vacation. We chose the perfect place. Location in the historicand and happening part of Wrightsville beach allowed us to walk where ever we wanted. Mercers Pier and great beach for walking or looking for sharks teeth...found 2 nice fossils. Great choice of shops, ice creamery, grocery all easy walks. Very safe area. The cottage was well equipped -- especially for beaches...outside shower for rinsing off too. Decorations are very tasteful. We would recommend to anyone considering a few days in the area. Parking is great
