About the Property

5 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 16, close to the beach and sound

Welcome to RelaxINN

This one of a kind beach cottage from the 1950’s, RelaxINN, is located in the heart of Wrightsville Beach. It is just down the street from the sand and ocean and the famous Mercers fishing pier where you can catch your own dinner. We can sleep 16 people very comfortably and provide parking for 4 automobiles. We believe your nights should be as restful as your days are exciting so we provide new Posturepedic mattresses with comfortable sheets on all the beds.

This unique over/under duplex home has a full kitchen and a living room on both floors for your privacy and enjoyment. Both apartments have private, front and side entrances and are also joined by an inside stairway via the laundry room where you will find your washer and dryer. The home is fully furnished, has cable, 4 new flat screen TVs, 2 DVD players and fast Internet connection. Just bring your suitcase with clothes, bathing suits, sunscreen, toiletries and beach necessities. All linens and bath towels are included. Please don’t take the bath towels to the beach.

We are just a few houses from a charming little Greensboro Street Minipark providing a safe playground for the children. The Minipark has swings, a slide, and a kiddie wall climb. You can sit in the shade at the covered picnic table to relax while the children play.

We are walking distance from the Wrightsville Beach Recreational Park with 4 Tennis courts, 3 volleyball pits, a softball field, a basketball court, outdoor fitness equipment, 2 picnic shelters with plenty of room for exercising and Frisbee. You can step out the back door and you are on the famous 2.5 mile Wrightsville Beach Loop!

If you fly into the New Hanover Co. International Airport (ILM), an airport taxi will take you and your family to your vacation home and return you to the airport after your vacation. The cost is around $25 each way. If you drive in, you will have 4 parking spaces, two in the garage and two in the driveway. There is additional metered parking on the street. BUT, you can actually park your automobile(s) upon arrival and walk everywhere you need to go. Area restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, bars and shopping are just a pleasant stroll down Lumina Avenue and Causeway Drive. The beautiful scenery will make the walk more enjoyable. You can even walk down to Wings for those forgotten beach essentials. But, if you get a craving for McDonalds, you must drive off the beach. This quiet, family oriented beach town doesn’t have any chain restaurants “on-island”.

Both upstairs and downstairs provide ample covered front porch sitting with rocking chairs so you can enjoy the soothing ocean breezes along with your drink of choice. And most importantly, you can relax, relax, relax!

The upper, rear deck is uncovered and is a perfect place to work on your tan in private, away from those prying eyes of strangers. It is also good for watching the multitude of walkers enjoying their promenade around the Wrightsville Beach Loop and stargazing on those beautiful clear beach nights. Don’t forget to enjoy those evening alfresco suppers with the cooling sea breeze from the Atlantic Ocean.

The lower apartment consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a living room and well stocked kitchen. There are 2 queen size beds, two twin size beds, 1 new flat screen TV, a DVD player, and fast internet connection.

The upper apartment has 3 bedrooms 1 ½ bath, a spacious living room and well stocked kitchen. There are 3 queen size beds, a set of bunk beds, 2 twin beds, 3 new flat screen TVs, a DVD player, fast internet connection. We also provide a pack n play, and a foosball table for your enjoyment.

This is our family home and we are very proud of it and we truly want you to enjoy it as much as we do. If there is anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable, please do not hesitate to call us at any time.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1988

About: Our family lived in this wonderful beach getaway for decades, and now we want to share it with you. I am Jamie (the younger one), and I am helping my dad rent his beach house to wandering adventurers. I've spent half of my life traveling myself, so I understand the need for a clean, comfortable place to lay your head! I hope you will enjoy your stay!

Why Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA:
Dad was so excited to find this house because he had always wanted to own a home at the beach. I have lived there off and on over the years as well, so I can't help but feel like it is still home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beautiful hardwood floors and metal awnings so you can listen to the rain (but let's hope there isn't much of that!). For the past few years we have rented the home out to guests, but have taken extra care to ensure that our family home was taken care of.
