Great location - lots of space - 3rd year renting for the summer and we love it
We just love hosting your group and are so honored you've made it a family tradition! Can't wait to see you guys again at the Tipsy!
Sound side is the best!
I've known Wrightsville Beach my entire life but this is the first time my family has rented directly on the sound. The pier and front porch were obvious favorites. Other perks were: the beds, comfortable and quality sheets and towels, every kitchen pan and gadget, new gas stove, ample parking, all the beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrellas you could imagine, clean, vintage beach furniture with character and comfort, air conditioners in every room with ceiling fans. If I could ask for something extra it would be a light over the large dining room table, washer and dryer on the main level, and to allow mature dog(s), with deposit or not. I look forward to coming back next summer!
A wonderful time was had by all 10 of our family.
A cute but large period family beach house. Aptly named Tipsy Cottage. Great views of the water, short walk to the ocean. We loved it! Thanks Frank!!

Great time with great views
We had a great time at Tipsy Cottage. While it is an older beach house dating back to the early days of Wrightsville Beach, we had a great time with lots of rooms. The layout is not a modern one, it was a classic beach house. We had 10-12 tennis friends stay for a long weekend of tennis and time on the water watching the sunsets and getting a little Tipsy.
Great home on the causeway!!
We all had a great time! Stayed at Tipsy Cottage while 4 or our family competed in the Wilmington ironman event. The house is close to the beach and was a perfect distance from downtown Wilmington and all the activities we needed to be at. The house is "Tipsy", but has great porches for gathering and relaxing on. All the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook a meal. We loved the area and would return for another visit. Communication with the owner was prompt. The property was perfect for our needs. We would recommend to friends and family. Thanks.
It was our pleasure to host your group and we are so happy to hear you had a wonderful time!
Thank you for taking such great care of the Tipsy and we hope to see you again.
