About the Property

Beautiful And Beachy Ocean View!

Feel perfectly at home In this beautifully decorated beachy downstairs unit Duplex Cottage on one of Wrightsville's favorite streets, Sandpiper, just four streets north of Johnny Mercer's Pier. Our family and pet-friendly 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home sleeps 6, or 8 with permission. It is only 5 houses from the ocean with no street to cross, and has all you need for a fantastic beach stay.

The master king sleigh bed has a comfy mattress topper and duvet. The master bath has a jetted tub and large walk in shower. Other two bedrooms have twin and queen beds. For your convenience I also have two inflatable mattresses, a soft toddler bed, a portable bassinet, and a Pack-n-Play. All bedrooms have roomy closets.

The inviting open concept living, dining and kitchen has a gas fireplace for stays in colder months. A spacious hot and cold outdoor shower will keep you smiling in warmer months.

Lounge, laptop, sun, sip or swing on one of the three porches. Or pack the beach cart with provided beach chairs, rafts, toys, buckets, and boogie boards... just 200 steps away, no street to cross.

Fun and popular restaurants, bars, shops, and our locally-owned Robert's Grocery are within walking distance as is Johnny Mercer's Pier, the tree-lined Loop (for walkers and joggers), the adorable Greensboro Playground, and gorgeous Banks Channel where each evening you can see the sun set. A short drive away are even more fun distractions. with movies, endless shopping, and a plethora of restaurants. And, of course, the beautiful and historic city of Wilmington is just the next town over!

When you book you will get an invitation to get the HomeAway app with tons of information about the house, the area, and my recommendations for what to do and where to go. I strive to help make your stay everything you wish it to be, so please let me know how I can help at any time!

Location

Car: Recommended

Wrightsville beach offers a host of highly rated casual and upscale restaurants both on the island and right across the bridge. And it's shopping galore... with everything from gourmet pet stores to art and antiques and thrifty or upscale fashion, you will find something to enjoy and bring home with you. Try fishing, boating, kayaking, biking, surfing, parasailing, a water and fun park, miniature golf and more. If wildlife is more your style, take a boat or ferry to Masonboro island to picnic, or explore the local aquarium or botanical gardens. The opportunities for adventure in and around Wrightsville Beach are nearly endless. A short drive takes you to historic Wilmington for even more eating, shopping and sight-seeing opportunities. Or head to Fort Fischer and take the ferry to Bald Head Island or the quaint and historic town of Southport.

Please ask me about my favorite spots!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My x-husband and I bought this house in 2002 after years of wonderful trips to Wrightsville Beach. Our daughter was born in 1998 and we began looking for a place to call our own. Four years later, on the way to look at this beautifully built house we saw a gorgeous rainbow. Well... we bought it and never looked back! Though no longer together, we share the home, as well as rent it for needed income, and so that others can enjoy it when we're not there. We both live in Durham and get there as much as we can. We hope you enjoy the home as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA:
This is our second home and we hope you feel at home too! I put my heart and soul into it and strive to provide everything you need. It is cozy and warmly appointed with local and other art as well as things I've collected from NC, Mexico and Europe. No vinyl here! Our home is only 200 steps from the sand with no street to cross which makes it safer to get kids to and from the beach. It has three porches, two in front and one in back so, depending on time of day, you can find either sun or shade. There is a fun porch swing, table and chairs for lap top working, or chairs and settee for lounging and sunning. Four blocks away or a short beach stroll is Johnny Mercer's Pier, a great place for kids to run to for a snack or soda, or just to hang out or fish on the pier. We supply most everything you'll need so no need to lug things from afar like sheets and beach pails. We provide bath towels and linens and have tons of toys, chairs, etc. If you'd like to use the bikes or grill, we ask you that you let us know you'll be using them. We hope you have a wonder-ful time!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great location. Walk to restaurants and local grocery. 5 houses from from beach, no street to cross. Homey. Nice beds and bedding. Linens and towels provided. Three porches. 10 foot ceilings with tons of natural light. Well-equipped kitchen with new pots and pans, new fridge and microwave. Very large hot and cold outdoor shower. New washer and dryer. Gas fireplace in cooler months. Beach cart, beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, and boogie boards. Grill and bikes with permission. Pet friendly up to two dogs (no cats) with permission.
