Pier-to-Pier Weekend

  • 5 of 5
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.

Best Kept Secret at WBch!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Adorable and Comfortable Cottage on Wrightsville

  • 5 of 5
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!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful little cottage. We are long-time visitors to Wrightsville Beach but my MIL sold her home and we needed someplace for our small family's holiday gathering. Sand Crab was absolutely perfect for that purpose.

I thought every detail was addressed and the property needed nothing, so what's to not like? Exactly one short block to the beach, .25mile to restaurants and the small grocery store on the island, just over the causeway to big-box grocery stores, etc. IOW, close to everything you'd need.

The two bedrooms downstairs are perfectly nice but the best room was the loft which has two built-in single beds. Our 15yr. old got that room and I think she made out like a bandit - very cozy.

Everything was perfectly clean and in order(TV's, HVAC, appliances), paint is fresh, the furniture on the porch was like-new, what am I leaving out? Nothing...the home was exactly as advertised(and then some - they put up a Christmas tree). We didn't bring our dogs but I love that the owners are ok for pets and next time we'll bring one or two.

I've had good and bad experiences renting homes off of HomeAway and VRBO but this one was absolutely a winner. I predict we'll be back.

Nice enough place

  • 3 of 5
The Sand Crab Cottage was nice enough, though it was very over-decorated. Mainly we were unhappy with poor communication and having to wait a month for the refund of our security deposit (though technically it was returned within the stipulated 45 days). Would not visit this place again.

Owner's Response: Heidi- thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry your experience at our home wasn't as exceptional as others. There is no way to decorate to please all people. However, we do provide many pictures and detailed descriptions of our home so it's cottage feel isn't a surprise to our renters. I am also sorry to hear you had concerns about communication. I thought we were very accommodating in allowing your late payments and late contract return. I am sorry you didn't feel the same. Best regards in your future rentals.

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!
