Adorable and Comfortable Cottage on Wrightsville

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!

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.
Owner's Response: Chris - Thank you for the lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed the cottage - and we invite you to make it your "home away from home" at Wrightsville Beach! We look forward to welcoming you back again - hopefully soon - and this time bring the 4 legged family members too! Warm regards - Jody

Nice enough place

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.

My husband, myself, my younger son and his wife and two children (age 4 & 6 mtns) and my daughter-in-laws mom and our two dogs spend the week in this fabulous beach home. This place has everything that you could need. So many beach towels, bath towels all the supplies that you need to take to the beach. Crib, high chair,etc. There is a wide variety of movies you could watch but we have to admit that my grandson was the only one to watch movies as the adults loved sitting on the porch visiting and watching people. It was one of the best vacations we have ever had and any of our friends that stopped by loved it also (we had a wedding to attend so we did have a few people stop by. Thank's to Jody for providing all the information regarding Wrightsville Beach and the surrounding areas. We will be back!!
