Oceanside apartment comfortably furnished and well -equipped that is located in the 'heart' of Wrightsville Beach. Top floor apartment will comfortably sleep 8 to 10 people. Just steps from the beach and the downtown area. The 'walking loop' is just steps away. This is a 3 mile walk around the island. There are tennis courts, basketball courts, play grounds within this loop. Charter fishing boats are available. Cruises on the waterfront are available. The fishing pier is a short walk down the beach. Wilmington's historic district on the river front is a short drive. The aquarium at Ft. Fisher is a short drive. Airlie Gardens is just over the bridge. A new shopping arena has opened 'Mayfaire' just over the bridge with multi-specialty shopping, movie theater. Local churches are within walking distance. Great ocean view from the spacious porch.
This apartment building has been in our family for many years. My children enjoyed growing up at the beach and riding their bikes and playing outdoors in a safe and friendly enviornment. During the peak summer months, we have a life guard at the end of the street on the beach. We wanted to share our vacation place with others as the experience at the beach is so peaceful and relaxing. I truly believe you will have a wonderful stay here.
I arranged for my friends to stay here for my wedding week and they loved it. I was there quite a bit and it is immaculate. Beautiful hard wood floors, decorated very nicely, big and well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. There is only one bathroom so be prepared for that. There are stairs to climb but definitely worth it. The view from the porch is excellent. Their stay was off season so it was very quiet. I think during the high season it would probably be more active on this street so that would be something to keep in mind. I'm going to recommend this apartment to my friends who don't need or want "luxury" accommodations. It is very homey, cozy, and my style. The location is great for the restaurants in Wrightsville Beach, excellent fish tacos and margaritas just around the corner! Yippee!
This location is great for a quiet beach get away. Everything was clean and roomy with little tourist traffic. It felt like a home. We enjoyed the porch all through out the day with a view of the ocean and cool breezes. Busy shopping and dining places were a short drive away as well as other beach towns along the NC coast. We plan to visit here again.
Arrived for a 2 night weekend getaway-for much needed rest and relaxation. The apartment was wonderful! It was nicely decorated, comfortable and CLEAN. So close to the beach with easy access! Finally able to relax and settle in for a good nights sleep on Saturday night only to have the two houses beside us join forces for a BLOW OUT party. The stereo system placed in the window played very loud Techno music. The couches were pulled out into the yard (which already had a previously constructed bar next to one of the houses..) while young adults played drinking games that lead way into the night/morning. Called police and sound went down for a while; just long enough to get about 2 hours of sleep only to be awaken at 3:15am by a group of drunk young ladies in the yard. ARGGH, I left more sleep deprived than when I arrived. This is not the owner's fault, but such a disappointment. Appears that the neighbors of this great apartment are year round folks that have occasional parties. My family was able to experience one of these times.
We chose to stay at the beach for a work-related trip; this was a perfect location, easy 1/2 block to the beach, to night-life, and other attractions. The apartment was well-appointed, very clean, and exactly as described.
My family stayed in this rental for 5 nights and 4 days for my daughter's wedding in Wilmington. We had an amazing time in Wrightsville Beach and this apartment could not have been more perfect and the location is just a short drive from Wilmington. There were 9 adults and we had more than enough room. The location is fantastic....great view of the ocean from the upstairs living room and front porch and a surprisingly pleasant view from the little stairway porch off the side. We easily walked to restaurants and shops and the grocery store was a great help and had everything we needed.
The apartment looks exactly as the photos show, but they can't do justice to the pleasant, quiet and restful atmosphere. It was spotlessly clean, well kept and well stocked with cooking supplies. We loved how even all the lamps had bulbs that worked.
Over the course of time before we arrived I emailed the owner and always got a prompt and helpful response and the caretakers on the 2nd floor were friendly and helpful when we needed them...which was only for a question or two.
On Saturday we had a gathering for more family and friends that had come in for the wedding but stayed other places. We cooked burgers on the grill and even with the addition of 6 more people, we had plenty of space.
The one bathroom is a drawback, but not enough to let this rental slip by you. My sister and her husband rented the downstairs efficiency apt. and that was very helpful as it really gave us a second bathroom, especially helpful when the whole house was getting ready for the wedding.
No linens is another drawback, especially for those of us flying, but we managed and could have rented linens. We saved money, however by supplying our own. Even if you rent linens, you still have to remember there is only one washer and dryer on the ground and it is coin operated. The night we needed to launder clothes another renter was using the machine and was very slow removing his/her items. We had to check back several times and finally transferred his/her clean clothes to a basket so we could wash. With wet suits, clothes and towels more washers and dryers would be a great help!
King Neptune's Restaurant at the end of the street was a nice meal and the frozen custard on the next street corner was delicious.
Parking is tight and any visitors you have will have to search out parking, but its do-able.
I would highly recommend this apartment rental for a family vacation.
My family nd I rented this apartment in July 2011. what a view we had cant wait to go back again. The apartment was very clean. It was very comfortable I felt like I was home. Close to the bech was the best part :) We had an amazing time. We are already talking about coming back out in July 2012.
