Reviewer Comments:

Overall, a very good week at this vacation home. Only suggestion would be to replace the furniture on the back deck. Out of the 4 rocking chairs two were broken, one could not be used. Grill would not work and there were nothing to clean the grates with. Place was clean and management was very efficent.

Reviewer Comments:

WE have stayed at Sweet Shirl the past 4 years and love the location and easy access to the beach. This year the cottage was recently painted, updating the inside. A couch upstairs was replaced by a futon, which is extremely hard and useless for sleeping or even sitting on for that matter. The oven smoked horribly when we tried to use it so I had to clean it before proceeding. Ditto the grill. The kitchen needs the plates and silverware replenished and some new pots and pans would be nice. We return to Sweet Shirl each year because it is lovely and wonderfully situated on the North End. The few minor inconveniences do not negate all the positive pluses of this rental.

We enjoyed the house so much. It was very spacious for our crew and we loved and enjoyed the wonderful views off the back deck. Wonderful porch to sit and rock. Thanks so much.

We rented this home last summer. We loved the house and the views off the back deck and especially the dock were amazing. The kitchen is well stocked as we love to cook! We rented kayaks for several days and launched from our dock. We will return to rent this home again.

Reviewer Comments:

Our trip was very nice. The house had two very large bedrooms and bathrooms. All other bedrooms and bathrooms were normal size. The downstairs interior had recently been painted grey instead of the green that shows in the pictures. Also, there were no sleeper sofas but we had 2 blow up mattresses. I felt the kitchen was adequately stocked, though we did no cooking. There is very large storage under the house along with the 3 car garage. View out the back is beautiful. House was great but disappointed in the fact that early check in was $50 per hour. We stayed in the middle of winter and no one was in the house prior but we waited till check in. Rental agency did call and say the house was ready early and I mentioned we did not want to pay the extra. We were still not offered the courtesy of checking in without charge.

Reviewer Comments:

Wonderful large rooms with lots of light and open space, perfect for a large crowd. bedrooms were great with comfortable beds. But we were VERY disappointed with the kitchen. There were no basics - starter dish washing liquid, powder, coffee filters, absolutely nothing other than a roll of paper towels. Can opener hardly worked. Barely any cooking utensils that a cook would use. It is obvious that no cook owns or stays here. Everyone kept tripping on the cheap throw rugs. And the chairs to the second table were being recovered so half of our dinner guests had nowhere but the couch to sit! (The picture on line shows the chairs in use and was part of why we rented the place.) Back stairs had green mold all over them and the deck/walkway were in need of maintenance. The place needs updating so that it is the prime place that it's location and presence reflect that it can be.

Map

Wrightsville Beach is truly a gem along North Carolina's southeastern coast. Wrightsville Beach is the perfect location for your family vacation. Enjoy the 4 miles of white sand beaches along the Atlantic or the soundside beaches along the Intracoastal Water Way and Banks Channel. There are plenty of family activities on the beach including world class charter fishing, boating, fantastic restaurants, and great shopping. Wrightsville Beach is just a quick drive to Wilmington where there are even more great places to eat and shop. Be sure to plan a day trip to Historic Downtown Wilmington to tour historic homes and gardens, the River Walk along the Cape Fear River, and the Battleship North Carolina, plus so much more.
