The property was great!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the welcome feel of having the bike and the exercise keys presented at the front and music playing! The only reason I'm not giving it a full 5 stars because I had so much trouble with the processing company that charged me double and would not refund. I had to a great deal of trouble but finally able to get the homeowner to write an email. I do wish the home owner would have taken matters in her hands and contacting the companies involved with the problem. Instead, she just gave me the 800 number to call. Also, the wifi is free, but it does not work. Please don't rely on anything that uses wifi while you stay.

My room...excuse me...condo with a view...

  • 5 of 5

The North end of Wrightsville is absolutely beautiful as beaches go. To be able to sit and just gaze out into the hues of the ocean, watch for the ever present dolphins and occasional whale...yes...whale s during the migration is awesome. Of all the places to stay and there are hundreds...this, by far, is my favorite and it is the listing I go to first. To me, it is an adult beach home. Everything is there, including beautifully decorated rooms and comfortable furnishings . They mean so much when one wants a brief escape. 5 star? I wish I could give it a 10! It is my homeaway with a view. First choice among many. Contacts are readily accessible if anything is needed...but they have thought of everything. Need I go on? No, I need to schedule my next reservation before it is booked! G H Clayton, repeat customer

Location great, classy unit

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at The Shell Island Resort. This unit has been completely remodeled, and is nicely appointed. The owners have done some extra things to add a personal touch and make beach going special. The seventh floor has great views of both the beach and the intercoastal waterway. Far enough away from the elevator to limit noise. Although there is a sofa sleeper, there is not much room to stow clothing and gear. Perfectly suited for a couple, a bit crowded for a family. Staff at the resort are very friendly and accommodating.

Lovely oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay.. The condo was very clean and exactly as pictured.

It was cozy for 3 of us, but would be perfect for a couple.

Would recommend to anyone interested in staying at the Shell Island Resort.
