This is a very unique property that was remodeled one year ago keeping 'The old beach look and feel'. This is a duplex. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths apartment upstairs and 3 bedrooms, 2 baths apartment downstairs. The rental fee, 4 night minimum, is $200 a night for 1 apartment. The rental fee is $400 a night to rent the whole house/both apartments. The 2 bathrooms and kitchen on each level incorporate the granite and tile look, but the walls, doors and floors retain the old beach architecture. Located on the narrowest point, south, on Wrightsville Beach, this property has both ocean and sound views from the front porch and has access to both. The famous Chrystal Pier, now Oceanic Pier, with outdoor dining and fishing is less than a block away. Sound access for your paddle board, kayak, canoe, sunfish, is less than 100 feet away.

About Dotty Freedland
Born and raised on Wrightsville Beach plus a Southender

Why Dotty Freedland chose South End
We are generational in boating, fishing , sailing, and surfing. The South End is premire in all of the above. Our private pier that extends into Banks Channel has space for both large and small watercraft.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love being within a block of the waterway and beach. 1/2 a block away from the Oceanic Pier and restaurant, Sundays coffee shop and South End Surfshop.

Great Property in a Great Location
Our group had an awesome time staying here. Easy access to the beach and very close to everything else you need on the island. I highly recommend anyone to stay here and we would definitely stay here again!
Enjoyed having you all as guests and do come back again sometime. Nice seeing you all enjoying the porches and glad you could appreciate the location of 9 Nathan Ave., Wrightsville Beach, NC.
This property is in a great location and was the perfect size for all of our family. We rented both the top and bottom units. BEWARE... soon as we walked into the place there was a horrible mildew smell so bad we had to go buy air fresheners and then after a few days our clothes started to smell the same way. If you only rent the top unit there is no frying pan in that unit and if you want a nice warm shower that's impossible. The water is either off or scalding hot or freezing cold. There are no plug ins in one of the bedrooms so you can't plug in a clock or a phone. The downstairs unit has no remote for the TV so you get to watch one channel. We told the owner and he told us to go to the Cable company and pick one up. As for all 6 of the beds you might as well sleep on the beach, it would be more comfortable. All in all we made it work and had a great vacation.
Disappointed to read about the various issues you had with rental property during your stay. This is the first I have heard about the remote. The remote has been replaced with one that is compatable with the cable box. I could have provided you with frying pan if I had known it was missing. The odor in the house, is "old" beach house. You were very resourceful to get the air freshner spray. Finally, sorry to hear that all the beds were uncomfortable. I am sure you will have better travel experiences in the future.
Great place for a vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 9 Nathan Avenue. The owner was very nice and helpful. The accommodations were modest but 6 bedrooms and 4 baths worked very well for our large family and it is one of the best values I could find. Steps to the beach and the sound, parking for over 6 cars and two great porches for enjoying the ocean breeze. Negatives: no laundry, small eating area and the mattresses were quite uncomfortable. I slept on an air mattress.
Thank you for the review. Regret the mattress were uncomfortable and will work on replacing them with comfortable mattresses. There should be laundry w/d on this property for the 2019 rental season.
Perfect Place for Our Trip
9 Nathan was the perfect place to house our large group. Great location between the beach and the sound!
We loved the quaint beachy feel with the modern updates.
We had a fantastic time and plan to return to the same location next year! We enjoyed the house, the beach, the boats, and the area in general. It was a fantastic family vacation spot!
Hope you will come back and have nicer weather, more sun and warmer days. That was unusual weather for June.
We were looking for a place that would be "home away from home" and found it. This cottage was perfect for us. We loved the porch and being only steps from the beach. The feel of the cottage is comforting and relaxing. Our hope is to stay again as we get to the Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach a couple times a year. Thank you!
Life slows down on the South End of Wrightsville Beach. This unique property is located on the narrow part of the Island with both the Ocean and Sound just steps apart. Bring your boats( canoe, SUP, outboard, ect). This property can be three bedrooms and two full baths or six bedroom and four full baths. Book early if you need both units!
