Pros and Cons
The pros included being in easy walking distance to the beach (just over 1/2 mile), even closer access to the sound through several public access points just one street over, a quiet neighborhood, the location within the loop for morning runs, beautiful sunset views, and comfy beds. I especially loved the full linen package, which can be hard to find included with rentals. The available boogie boards and beach chairs are pretty tired, but did the job - and it was awesome that there was a push cart included for hauling everything back and forth to the beach. Although this is a duplex property, no one was renting out the top floor during our stay so we didn't have any issues with upstairs noise.
The cons included that the kitchen was not very well stocked. There were basic dishes and pots/pans, but very few other things. For instance, only one measuring cup and no cutting boards and definitely nothing "extra", like a cheese grater. We had to be pretty creative in some of our meal prep. There were no storage containers with lids, so you would definitely need to bring some plastic ziploc bags, aluminum foil and/or tupperware. You will also need to bring your own laundry detergent, etc for the laundry room, but starter packs for the dishwasher were provided.
We also didn't love that we were right next to the elementary school, which seemed to have a lot of indoor work activity going on while we were there, with cars coming and going frequently and workers hanging out in the parking lot. I would definitely not recommend this house when school is in session. And it just didn't make for a pretty view from the side windows.
There's a nice back deck overlooking the sound, but the tree growth in the backyard makes it tricky to get a good view and the mosquitoes were awful so we didn't spend much time out there. Bring bug spray if this is important to you!
We were also bummed that there were no DVD players for either TV. I tried emailing the property manager before our trip to confirm if this rental had any, but never heard back so all the DVD's we brought were left in a bag. We had to hook our laptops up to the TV to stream movies.
Also good to know is that this rental includes parking for three cars - but it is a tight space for three. We were able to fit all three of ours (two sedans and an SUV), but there was little wiggle room. Plenty of space though if you're only bringing one or two cars.
Overall it was a good, quiet rental for our week.
Newly Remodeled Duplex A Pleasure
Yea a get away from COVID-19! Great to get away from home. We chose this house because it offered "pet friendly". We have never traveled with our pet. The house is newly remodeled in 2019. The master bedroom is large and the open walk in shower was a nice feature. The house has 4 bedrooms (2 king beds, 1 queen bed and a double day bed). The beds were very comfortable. The house overlooks the marsh and is nestled in front of the Wrightsville Beach Elementary School. The school was not in session or we would have encountered morning and afternoon car pool lines. The back porch has a gate to secure your pets, which was great, and we utilized the gas grill on the porch. The marsh views are beautiful at sunset. The house is situated in a quaint neighborhood and we enjoyed walking/biking. You are a 10 minute walk to the beach access located across from the Wings Dept Store. The family took advantage of the Wrightsville Beach walking loop and we kept the Trolley Stop in business with daily hotdog purchases and The Workshop Coffee Shop with AM java. The property manager, Jon Deputy, quickly responded to any requests we had on the maintenance of the house. Jon was very personable and a great asset to have. I would highly recommend this house because of the beauty of the remodel. I gave the location a 4 because it was not closer to beach access. I would suggest adding a Smart TV so guests can download their streaming shows. B Morrison, Charlotte, May 16, 2020
First time staying in Wrightsville for the holidays and this house was the perfect retreat. The location is perfect and there is easy access to the beach, walking trails , parks, shops and restaurants. The house was beautifully furnished and the layout was perfect. The deck faced the marsh and was perfect for morning coffee and afternoon wine. If you really need access to the internet, the service is off and on, however you can reboot the modem. We will definitely be back!
Great weekend for family
We were thrilled with our rental on Wrightsville Beach. Very clean, updated, overall would rent again. Property manager Jon was very helpful and easy to reach.
