About Michael Kerr

New owner that is excited to share a quality experience at beautiful Wrightsville Beach. Our family uses the house frequently as well, so we've furnished it in a manner that we enjoy and know you will too. We are pretty certain you will want to come back!

Michael Kerr purchased this house in 2012

Why Michael Kerr chose North Carolina

Wrightsville Beach provides a great variety of personalities and activities. With fantastic ocean beaches, the peaceful sound, the Intercoastal, the Cape Fear River and downtown Wilmington, we never run out of amazing things to see and do... and great places to eat, find seashells and relax.

What makes this house unique

The location is unique to Wrightsville in that we are at the end of Schloss Street, so there is zero through traffic. Children have an open and safe place to play, cycle, skate, scooter, etc. Parents can enjoy a peaceful view of the sound and keep an easy eye on the children from our fantastic front porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Michael --



First and foremost -- we had a FABULOUS week at Ocean's Edge!! The

accommodations were wonderful and we definitely look forward to renting it

again in the future. Loved the deck in the morning for

coffee and at night at sunset; the proximity to the beach couldn't have

been better and having use of all the chairs, beach cart, kayak, etc. was

awesome. We really loved the feel of the area -- more of a family

atmosphere and not tourist-y. We literally spent every day at the beach

with the exception of one when we strolled through a couple of local shops

and ate at the South Beach Grill for lunch. The open floor plan and ample

seating options were perfect for hanging out together at night and playing

games, working on puzzles, etc. It was a perfect week! Thank you.

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed spending a week relaxing at this lovely beach house. Michael was a gracious and responsive host; there were a few minor problems with the hall bath that he helped sort out and was available through text throughout the week for random questions that came up. House is large, tastefully decorated, and had a extremely well-stocked kitchen. Walk to both beach and sound (kayaking!) are negligible distance, and house itself is actually very well situated at end of dead-end street so there is zero traffic. Garage has plenty of beach chairs, toys, life jackets, and several beach cruisers that we took into town for ice cream. Our minor complaint is that the outdoor shower is right under the neighbors' windows, so shower with your suits on and don't expect a ton of privacy! Everyone agreed that the highlight of the house is the enormous front porch which has enough room and furniture for sleeping, reading, yoga, dining, swinging and watching the sunset over the sound, etc. Highly recommend this property and would love to come back next year.

Great home, great location, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home when we were in the area for my niece's wedding. This house was perfect for our family. Roomy, comfortable, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and we loved the outdoor deck. We spent most of our time there. Michael was great to work with and responded quickly to my questions. We would love to stay at this property again.

Great house - well appointed and on quiet end of beach

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed home - awesome living area and kitchen/dining combination. Front porch is incredible overlooking a quiet, peaceful street with the sound in the background. Has everything you need in the garage for a day at the beach. The owner was very responsive and easy to contact. We would definitely stay here again - very relaxing and beautiful Easter weekend at the beach!

Lovely property. Clean, well equipped and one of the nicest beach houses we have rented.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for us and our attendance at the 2016 NC Ironman race. It's just down the street from the swim start and so allowed is access to get to the race kick-off without the need for buses.

The house is well equipped and nicely furnished. It has views of the sound with just a single story home covering a small portion of the view. Short walk of a couple of hundred yards across the single street at this southern part of the island and you're on the beach.

Highly recommend and Micheal was both responsive and flexible in some requests we had for him.

You can stop searching...

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great family house at the quiet south end of Wrightsville Beach, you can stop searching. You won't find a better value than Water's Edge. The location and the amazing porch make this house a clear winner. The house is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The location is amazing--such a quick walk to the beach or the sound. Our family loved being on a quiet residential street. The large covered porch is the perfect spot for eating or relaxing any time of day. We appreciated the extra equipment, including deluxe beach chairs with backpack straps and cupholders! My husband and son took out the kayak one day--a wonderful bonus. You can walk to the southern tip of the island, to Sundays cafe for coffee or drinks, or to the Oceanic in no time. The owner, Michael, is easy to reach and even checked on us when bad weather was coming. Having stayed in many beach rentals in the past, we really appreciated the special upgrades such as comfortable beds and sheets, a decent coffee maker, and a nice outdoor shower with hot water. This is a gem of a house and a great place to get away!

Wow! Exceptional beach house, can't beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this house. I have been renting vacation homes for over 20 years and have pretty high standards. This is the first time that I rented through the home owner but Michael was great and everything went very smoothly. The location is perfect with views of the sound from the deep porch and very easy access to the oceanside beach(a few minutes walk at most). This house is located in a quiet, residential area so the beach is not crowded. We enjoyed many walks on the beach...to the Oceanic for a waterfront dinner as well as around the southern tip of the island. The garage is loaded with quality beach chairs, toys, bikes, etc. Couldn't ask for more. The house is not only very clean but very warm and inviting. No issues at all, we will definitely return to this house!
