Reviewer Comments:

We had the opportunity to rent Marsh Madness to accommodate our family for our daughter's wedding. The house is in a fantastic location with peaceful marsh views and incredible sunsets. When we checked in, the house was not as clean as it should be and the bathrooms looked like they had never been cleaned. We had a problem with ants and the Kitchen Aid ice machine would not work. We also could not locate the grill which was listed in the home's amenities. That being said, once we phoned Intracoastal Realty, we had immediate service. They were very professional and sent a cleaning crew out and someone to spray for ants. They let us know that they called an appliance service for the ice maker. They also let us know that the owner had taken the grill off the premises due to an incident. While I appreciate Intracoastal's quick response, there are things that this house should have with such a costly rental rate. At this price point you should not have to rent a grill or beach chairs and need to buy hangers. All appliances should be in working order. Kitchen cabinets were in such a disarray that you didn't know what you had on hand for food preparation. As past reviews have stated, there is a strong sulfur smell in the master bedroom.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay at Marsh Madness was only acceptable. It was a good location. However. The house is NOT suitable for a rental. There were so many things that most rentals have that this house was lacking. Our conclusion was that the owner rarely rented it and had no idea how to accommodate visiting families.

Beautiful property with spectacular views. Easy access to beach. Very well appointed, but impersonal. We found it odd that there is not a single picture on the wall. Almost felt like it wasn't finished.

The Best House on Wrightsville Beach

Reviewer Comments:

I have been vacationing on Wrightsville Beach since I was a young child and I have never enjoyed a stay more than the one at Marsh Madness. The house was immaculate and so beautifully designed and maintained! We had 11 people in our party, and everyone had plenty of privacy, as well as lots of places to come together to socialize. The owners have thought of everything that might increase one's enjoyment, including a fantastically-stocked kitchen, kayak, bicycles, and even a birding guide and binoculars! But absolutely best of all are the breathtaking views of the marsh and intracoastal waterway. The whole experience was perfect, start to finish.

Reviewer Comments:

Marsh Madness is an absolutely beautiful home in a perfect setting--down at the end of Wrightsville Beach away from the crowds with a public beach access right across the street. The house is on three levels, which is not particularly clear from the photos (the photos are accurate and show the house as it is--it just wasn't clear to me from the photos that the house is on three levels). The master bedroom is on the same level as the kitchen, dining area and "family area", and the middle level has the other four bedrooms, so effectively it is a one-level house and perfect for a large group. The house is very clean and well-maintained. It really is a beautiful home with a spectacular view. Our only complaints are small, yet important. First, at least during our stay, the water, particularly in the master bathroom shower and sinks, smelled terrible. There is a very strong sulfur smell. It was so bad that it almost made me want to shower outside rather than inside. In addition, the water pressure in the master bathroom shower was terrible--it may be that the shower head needs to be replaced or it may be the water pressure, but the shower experience was unsatisfactory. Thirdly, the bedding is fine, but the mattress in the master bedroom is a pillowtop-type mattress, but the fitted sheet is a "regular" fitted sheet, instead of being a "deeper" fitted sheet of the type that should be used for a pillowtop mattress. As a result, the fitted sheet absolutely would not stay on the mattress. It is annoying to wake up every morning with the fitted sheet pulled out of place and to find yourself essentially sleeping on the mattress. Marsh Madness is a beautiful and expensive-to-rent home, and these three small but important details detracted from the quality of our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall! Thank you for bringing these few items to our attention so that we are able to address them for future guests. We wish that you had informed us about these issues during your stay so that we would have been able to handle them immediately to improve your experience. We have had a plumber out to address the smell and pressure of the water. We have also put 15" deep pocket sheets into circulation. Guest Services Manager SNS 6/23
