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!!

Amazing Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is great - tons of space and lots of natural light. The kids enjoyed the pool and ping pong tables after spending the days outside. Luckily we had friends with a boat who used Ric's dock to pick us up for a day of tubing. We rode bikes to the beach and took the kayaks out in the early evenings. We hope to make this our annual vacation spot.

Awesome Home in Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes in various locations at Wrightsville Beach, and this was probably our favorite! The home is absolutely beautiful, and had everything we needed. The room on the top floor was perfect for the kids in the afternoons after a day in the sun! We spent lots of time on the dock and porches, and loved that the owners provided kayaks and other recreational stuff for us to use. Ric was amazing to work with - so understanding, patient, and eager to help with anything we needed. We can't wait to come back again next year!

Fantastic home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row at this home and we loved it just as much as we did the first time. The location is perfect and the home is not only beautiful, but there is enough room for our family of 7 to have their own space. We rented a boat and used the dock as well. We will definitely be coming back next year.
