We enjoyed the house so much when we rented in 2016 that we rented again in 2017. That's the best review you can give. The location is perfect and Ric is an amazing person to work with. Hope to go back again in 2018!!

The beach house you'd want to call your own

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a comfortable gathering place for our family during UNCW graduation weekend. This house delivered on every level. It's not fancy, it's just exactly what you need. Spacious, easy, GREAT well-equipped kitchen, amazing view (especially the sunrise), perfect location, check in and out couldn't have been easier - truly everything we were looking for. And it rained almost the whole time we were there - but no one cared b/c we just had such a great time hanging out in the house - playing games, shooting pool, making great meals. And although we didn't really need a thing, Ric the owner was so accommodating that I'm sure he would've gotten it for us if we had. Anxious to come back in warmer months to take advantage of more of its outdoor charm!

This house was perfect for a group of couples in town for a fall wedding! There was more than enough room for 9 adults and the house had everything we could’ve needed during our stay. It was very clean and well-maintained. The outside area- the porches and little backyard area overlooking the water- could not have been more perfect. The owner Ric was very responsive when I asked questions leading up to our stay. I would definitely recommend this house!

Spent a week here for my daughters wedding. Best decision ever. The house is in excellent condition, and very clean. Upon arrival my husband and I were speechless. My husband spent most of his time on the dock catching various sea life. Used the kayaks,bikes and pool table. Owner responded to questions immediately. Had a prob with the remotes for one of the TVs the owner came right over and even purchased a more modern TV for us to use. Something he did not have to do. Excellent assortment of pots, pans and dishes. Will definitely book again.

Thank you Rick for sharing your house!!!

Beautiful home, wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a weekend and it was exactly what we hoped for and more. The house itself is cozy but very clean, spacious and the best part of all is the view you wake up to. It is right on the water where you can watch the sun rise and then enjoy the views throughout the day. Ric was wonderful to work with- super communicative, so fast with responding and overall very friendly and pleasant. We brought our 16 month old and he set up a pack and play for us and let us use his baby gates. Overall a great experience!

Amazing location, amenities and home!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with 4 colleagues from work that traveled to Wrightsville beach from across the globe. We were all blown away by the location and amenities of this house. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We absolutely loved the yard, deck and dock leading to the water. A sunrise swim off our own private dock, took our breath away! 10 out of 10!
