About Kate & Anthony Costella

After re locating to Wilmington we fell in love with the Wrightsville Beach Community and decided to buy a beach home. We purchased the cottage because of its charm and coziness and wanted to share it and the beautiful beach with our guests. After you sit on our spacious porch and enjoy the ocean breezes and beautiful water view of Banks Channel you will understand why we named our home Summer Wind.

Kate & Anthony Costella purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kate & Anthony Costella chose Southern Coast

The best quality of this home is it's location. You do not have to get in a car unless you decide to go and explore the beautiful historic downtown Wilmington which we recommend. You are virtually steps from the pristine beach, delicious restaurants, nightlife, boutiques and grocery store.

Summer Wind-Wrightsville Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our week at Summer Wind. We are a family of five and the size of the bedrooms, living room ,etc was great for a beach vacation. The cottage is in a PERFECT LOCATION! The home is very close to the restaurants, coffee shop/grocery and surf shops as well as the beach! (it's right up the block)...I would recommend this cottage to anyone that wants to stay in Wrightsville. In fact, we are thinking of renting again, but for 2 weeks next summer. Thank you to Kate and Anthony for your hospitality!

Great place, close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We booked a last minute trip over Memorial Day weekend and the property was just as described. Beach was a 2 minute walk down a quiet street. Kate left us a wonderful pound cake as a welcome gift, Tony met us at the property to give us a quick walk through and they were very quick to respond to our only need during the stay (more trash bags). Place was perfect for us - 2 adults, 4 kids. We cooked one night in the functional kitchen, and there were plenty of utensils and pans for our use. Indoor showers worked great, outdoor shower is very convenient post-beach. House faces onto a major beach road, which was busy over the holiday weekend. But the bedooms are all at the back of the house so the noise at night was not a problem. You are within walking distance of a small grocery store, and places to eat. It's a neat spot and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Summer Wind with seven friends, and it was the PERFECT home for our girls weekend! We immediately fell in love with the bright porch and felt right at home in the well-decorated bedrooms and spacious living room. This home is walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and coffee, so it has something for everyone. The owners were very welcoming and helpful throughout the planning process and our stay. I definitely recommend this home and would love to visit again!

Perfect Shabby Chic Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family visited over Labor Day weekend with my 3 teenagers. This house was adorably decorated and had all the comforts of home. We all loved the location which was a short walk to the beach. Also, it was a short jaunt for donuts, ice-cream, Tower-7, Pizza, and a Surf Shop. The house was on the famous loop which we all loved to walk or run in the mornings. We loved the deck for evening cocktails and people watching. Great location and perfect place for a little get away!
