A beach-lover since childhood, it was my dream to own a special home in this exceptional small beach town- Wrightsville Beach - near the historic city of Wilmington for urban adventures. I am a professional designer. I detailed and furnished the home so that it would welcome and comfort visiting friends and family, and now I am offering it to you for your use as well.

Carol Ann Zinn purchased this house in 2006

Best non-oceanfront location in Wrightsville Beach, on Sunset Lagoon, two block walk to ocean. Absolutely nicest rental home in Wrightsville Beach. In a quiet safe residential neighborhood.

Use of 30 foot dock in deep water lagoon, near Banks Channel and IntraCoastal Waterway. Swim off the dock using retractable ladder. Bike or walk to downtown Wrightsville Beach. Bring your kayak or canoe (or use our 2 kayaks) to paddle the nearby channels and marshes. Cook's kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolfe appliances. Designer tile detailing and plumbing fixtures in spacious bathrooms. Master bedroom suite with deck overlooking lagoon, vistas of ocean, steam shower. Plasma TV's in three locations, other TV's in individual bedrooms. Ping Pong. Beach cart. In off-season, you will love our upscale interior setting.

AMAZING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely beautiful home, everyone involved during the entire process bent over backwards to accommodate my last minute request to stay in this amazing home. The neighborhood is quiet, the home is flawless, and the weather was perfect. I cannot wait to stay in this lovely home again. Thank you so much Carol Ann for allowing us to stay in paradise....

BETTER THAN OCEANFRONT!!

  • 5 of 5
This property is simply special. It is on a quiet cul de sac with spectacular views, which is saying a lot for Wrightsville Beach. We fit 3 busy families with no congestion whatsoever. Super simple rental process. Exactly the way VRBO should operate. Thanks!!

HOUSE WAS STUNNING!

  • 5 of 5
We would definitely stay here again and again. I have to say I really wanted an ocean front rental and was not so sure about the sound side. My thinking has been changed! We never went to the beach our entire stay! The water off of the dock was amazing and no sand to contend with. Even my aunt who is addicted to beach has changed her preference! On top of the amazing location, the house itself is immaculate, nicely appointed and very well laid out for a family vacation.

JUST AS NICE AS IT LOOKS IN THE PICTURES...

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Sanctuary in June 2013. In some cases, website pictures of rental homes can be deceiving, but not in the case of the Sanctuary. It is a beautiful and immaculately clean home that will make your stay in Wrightsville Beach even more enjoyable.

We were in town for our mother’s 60th birthday and had three families (with six kids ranging from 1-10 years old) sharing the house. Given the size and lay-out, it worked out perfectly - we all had plenty of space. The proximity to the beach was also ideal – just a short 2 block walk.

We would definitely recommend this house to other vacationers & plan to be back again ourselves.

PERFECTION PLUS!!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home you have, Carol Ann!! We could not have asked for a better place than The Sanctuary for a wedding weekend. Our son was married in Wilmington last weekend and we needed a place for family to stay, the bride to get ready in and entertain out of town guests. The elevator was perfect for the elderly along with being able to park in the garage (which by the way was immaculate as the rest of the house) and bring groceries, suitcases etc. to the various floors with ease. The floor plan allowed for an easy flow and bedrooms were so comfortable with plenty of room. The girls loved being able to have the whole master suite to get ready in and I'm sure the pictures will be breathtaking!!

My only regret...I would have liked another week there, just to relax but will most definitely be back for another visit. As we were packing up to leave, the dolphins put on quite a show right by the dock.
Thank you again for working with us on the dates. Your home was everything you described in your write-up and more with all the comforts of home.

PERFECT HOUSE FOR A LARGE CROWD

  • 4 of 5
My 4 star vs 5 star rating is due to the following... we went in mid Feb 2013. There was construction next-door and we were not notified. There was loud hammering in the mornings. The pictures are accurate except for the beautiful view out the windows behind the kitchen area dining table. Those palm trees now completely cover the window and are pressed up against it so that beautiful view is completely obstructed. You cannot see around the palm trees on the main level at all so we could not enjoy that awesome view. This was a major disappointment! One of the King Bedrooms has a round window high up on the wall that lets bright light in early in the morning. You have to bring your own linens and towels which is normal for Wrightsville, although I found a small handful of rentals that will take care of that for you. And last but not least, there is a significant deposit that is cashed and returned 45 days later.

Other than that, this house is amazing - it has 4 floors, the bottom being the garage, next up the main kitchen, 2 large dining room tables, 2 queen rooms, there is another bedroom with 2 sets of bunks (4 total beds) and I can't remember what floor that was on, the next up is another wet bar area and seating area w TV and 2 King Bed rooms, the top floor is the master with an awesome bath, balcony, desk area. The kitchen is impressive - fully stocked, and the 2 large dining tables are in close proximity. It's perfect for a large crowd. The house is on a lagoon (a "cul-de-sac" made of water with houses lining it). The water is very clear at the dock and it is a beautiful location. The beach is a short walk away. There are no restaurants within walking distance that we noticed. When driving, stay under the speed limit! They are known to ticket in this area.

Owner's Response: Those happy palm trees need regular maintenance, and they were trimmed soon after this guest departed. We keep our property "manicured" inside and outside. Very sorry about the noise from winter's construction- thank goodness it's finished and we have a beautiful home next door.
