The Sand Crab Cottage was the perfect beach house for our 30-Something Bachelorette Party! The cottage was very cute, comfortable and had every amenity you could want for. We talked about returning just the girls and also for a couples' weekend!
Having traveled much over the years, I can honestly say that this cottage is by far the best I have ever visited. Amazing, comfortable decor and attention to details throughout.
Owner considered everything in what goes into a perfect stay. Best value and beach house on east coast!
All of my best friends from high school and college just returned from a trip to The Sand Crab Cottage for a Bachelorette weekend. When I say our weekend was perfect, I mean it. The house was exactly what you have in mind when you think of a beach house. Not only was the decor and vibe in the house fun and laid back, it also had everything you need -- from laundry detergent and kitchen supplies to beach chairs, surfboards, and plenty of linens. We all plan to come back to the cottage as much as possible, and would recommend it to anyone. Jody -- thank you so much for helping to make our weekend so so incredible and memorable!
Everything was excellent about our stay. The location is essentially as good as being front row as it is only a 1 minute walk to the beach and there is a beach cart that can be used as a carrier for bulkier beach supplies. I can't think of any supply that was not provided. The beds are very comfortable; TVs are everywhere yet unobtrusive. The welcoming basket was a nice touch. Every nook and cranny of the cottage has an unexpected treasure. The upstairs bedroom is a nice little retreat. The refrigerator was well stocked as was the pantry and kitchen. I would highly recommend this cottage.
This was our family's Second Summer renting this WONDERFUL cottage!
Both our 20+yr old daughters and one small dog never considered another rental after the first summer...and my husband and I agreed! WE LOVE THIS PLACE!
*The OWNER, JODY, could not have been kinder or more accommodating for our family situation! She has always QUICKLY AND FAVORABLY RESPONDED to our questions and special needs, honestly conducted business details as promised, and was DELIGHTFUL to work with as renters! We will never forget the first day of our first stay there, my caffeine-addicted husband discovered the coffee pot was broken. We called Jody late afternoon and THE NEXT DAY there was a NEW one delivered from Amazon! She is very attentive... and gracious!
*Though it looks small from the outside, the INTERIOR feels quite SPACIOUS and OPEN while maintaining many living spaces for all to use, including the upstairs loft and magical porch deck perfect for morning coffee and an evening drink with friends. Love those umbrellas!
*CLEAN! CLEAN! CLEAN! and absolutely NO evidence of other visiting pets' odors! Even as animal lovers, we were originally a bit worried about that...but it is immaculate!
*Absolutely EVERYTHING AND MORE that you may need is FURNISHED....including kitchenware, basic kitchen pantry supplies, entertainment needs, linens/towels, beach gear, COZY COMFY furniture, and those BEDS!!HEAVENLY AND DELICIOUS sheets/duvets!
Though we originally felt the weekly rent was a bit pricey for our family, we soon realized we were getting AMAZING BANG for our BUCK with all the available amenities! (Consider the COST SAVINGS for Linens, Cleaning Service, Renting or hauling from home: bikes, beach chairs/umbrellas, kayaks, DVDs, Washing clothes on site, Free Parking! It's ALL there--and quite a relief in packing for a week! Honestly, their home is YOUR home! Also, we didn't eat out as often with such a stocked kitchen!) Photos and descriptions are accurate. Beautifully furnished!
*PERFECT LOCATION! One block walk to the Beach (our girls!)... OR One block walk to the Sound(my husband--fishing, paddle boarding, swimming-he's a Triathlete!) Quick stroll or bike ride to stores/restaurants, on the LOOP for exercise, and right in the Heart of WB! The home is well-insulated so we rarely heard outside traffic or noise!
We have been coming to WB for 30+years and have stayed at many places. The Sand Crab Sanctuary is one of the BEST...and truly a SANCTUARY!
We'll be baaaaack!
My mother, sister and I get together every year for a birthday weekend and this was the perfect getaway for all of us! The house is steps away from the beach, a very short walk to Wrightsville's restaurants and bars, and it is on The Loop. It is cozy yet spacious, has wonderfully comfy beds (separate ones for humans *and* dogs), an incredibly well-stocked kitchen, dogs bowls/a stocked treat jar/leashes, a great porch for sipping wine and chatting, and has anything you can imagine needing short of a toothbrush! The three of us and my sister's dog felt like we were at home. It was fantastic! Boris the Dog loved the plethora of toys for him to play with during his vacation. The Welcome basket was a thoughtful bonus. Very well planned, very clean, and just delightful!
The Loop! 2.5 mile 'loop' around the island for walking, biking, running, etc. Johnny Mercer Pier! Close by for fishing, entertainment, meeting and greeting the locals. The Beach! Step out of our cottage and you can see the beach access from the deck. Just a few houses to the left and you are there. Just a few houses to the right, and you can drop your canoe or kayak in the Intracoastal water way. Fishing! Catch your dinner off the pier, or directly from the surf. The Peace! The Sand Crab Cottage is a Seaside Sanctuary where you can rest, recharge, relax, and refresh.
