About Nancy Hofer
My sister and I inherited this house from our father. We both were born and still live in NC. My sister is a retired mail carrier and I am a Montessori educator. We have 5 extraordinary children between us and 4 spectacular grandchildren.
Nancy Hofer purchased this House in 1984
Why Nancy Hofer chose South End
During our childhood our family visited Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach often. We had extended family that lived in Wilmington. Our families would spend days on the beach swimming, surfing, sunning and enjoying picnics of homemade pimento cheese and tomato sandwiches. Our best childhood memories were made on this beach.
What makes this House unique
My father always dreamed of having a house at Wrightsville. In fact in the 1960's he bought the lot our house is on. By a quirk of fate, we ended up with the house when Dino DeLaurentiis needed to move 2 houses off the lots he was building his house on, when he opened what is now Screen Gems Studio. For the last 30 years we have made cherished memories in this house. We've spent countless hours preparing meals together in the kitchen, playing games on the long dinner table, rocking on the porch with a cup of coffee, a cold beer after a day at the beach, or with a sleepy baby. This house is comfortable enough to suit all your needs while being simple enough to encourage relaxation.

A nice place
Good location. We have enjoyed stay.
Place was clean and had a homey feeling. Needs new mattresses and dust ruffles on 3/4 of the beds.
Beds / mattresses are worn
Great supply of cooking materials
We were 4 adults and 3 kids and this place was wonderful. It is convenient to the ocean and sound, tastefully furnished, and an easy place to live. We spend most of our time outdoors, so this was perfect!
Owner very attentive
There was a scheduling mix up with the cleaning crew and the owner resolved the situation very quickly once she was made aware. We had a great long weekend in the property.
Wonderful Family Getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at this property. We were in town to celebrate our daughter's graduation from UNCW and brought extended family with us. The house is very well appointed with everything you would need, and the layout of rooms provides a nice balance of privacy and togetherness. Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the best of Wrightsville Beach. We would highly recommend this property!
The property is in a quiet, residential neighborhood, within walking and biking distance to restaurants, surf shops, stores, ice cream shops, parks, a local museum, and farmers market. A five minute walk to the beach and a hop and skip to the sound for quieter water and beautiful sunsets. The beach location is at the south end of the island where there is a minimum of parking for daily beach visitors so the beach is not crowded. The ocean water is crystal clear 80% of the time and a Caribbean ocean color. Pier, surf and sound fishing are popular. A bird sanctuary is located at the end of the island and protected by fencing and bird watchers.
