About the property

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

Dotty Freedland purchased this cottage in 1980

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.

We also can rent the upper and lower units individually, $200 a night, which mirror each other with two queens and two single beds plus two full baths each. The rate structure would be $200/ $1200 lower unit and $250/$1700 for the upper unit. We were really happy with our first season. We had three weddings and two family reunions that reserved the whole house. There is ample parking for these types of events. The Oceanic Restaurant , almost next door, is the premier dining facility on the Island and a good venue for all events. The Cottage is located on the South End of the Island which is noted for the best fishing, surfing, beach coaming, and swimming. The South End Surf and Coffee shop across the street sells and rents any of your water needs. Enjoy.

We loved the quaint beachy feel with the modern updates.

  • 4 of 5

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!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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!

Weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the forth of July weekend and had a great time. We arrived just about the time Hurricane Arthur was skipping across the coast, so i was able to check "Hurricane" off my bucket list. The owners were close by so if we needed anything we could ask. We rented the lower unit and it was perfect for our getaway. This rental is very conveniently located to beach access and dining and there was enough parking for our 3 cars as well as the 3 cars from the upstairs renters. The kitchen had all the basic needs for you to have meals at home and there is a charcoal grill great for grilling. We spent alot of time socializing on the front porch. Our group is already talking about staying here for next year and maybe renting both upstairs and down.

Owner's Response: So glad you all enjoyed your stay and look forward to you booking again next summer. There have been several whole house bookings that have worked out well. Glad to know "Arthur" did not spoil anyone's fun and what a beautiful day for the 4th!

Awesome location and perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented the upper unit. The owners were great! Very easy to work with from reserving and during our stay until check out.

We loved the outdoor patio with the rocking chairs to enjoy the views. We walked the sound side to watch the magnificent sun set.

We were the first guests after a remodel so everything was new.- linens, dining ware, utensils etc. Some stuff were missing like knives and cutting board but we gave a list to the owners. We grilled and cook most of meals. The three bedrooms were nice to have. Mattresses were just ok. The floors were a little dusty but we understood. We also loved having two full baths. The window AC units kept the place cool when needed. We got good breeze so didn't always need AC on. Loved the cable tv and strong reliable WiFi. The location was great. Close proximity to beach access. And pier if you had a boat or jet ski.

Would definitely stay here again

And recommend to my friends and family.
