About Jay Tervo

I publish online city guides, and my wife is a concert pianist. We have traveled quite a bit in lots of countries, and those travels influenced what we were going for when we renovated our unit a couple of years ago. Frankly, we kind of went temporarily insane. We really went for it. We decided if we were going to go to the trouble of renovating our unit, we might as well make it memorable. We hired an amazing interior decorator who came up with a unique and exciting design, and skilled craftsmen to do the work. Floor to ceiling mirrors make our unit seem as huge as our view of the ocean. We combined the two small bathrooms into one large, travertine marble masterpiece of a bath. Sliding glass and pocket doors make our unit memorable in all respects. You will love the 2-way mirror, allowing a view of the ocean from the bathroom. Makes everyone smile.....

Jay Tervo purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jay Tervo chose Wrightsville Beach

Wrightsville Beach is a treasure -- miles and miles of white sand beaches on a beautiful, non-commercialized island. Shell Island is the last building on the northern end of the island, adjacent to a bird sanctuary. Beach walkers LOVE Wrightsville Beach. Wilmington is a quick 10 minute drive away, and there one will find lots of attractions, fine restaurants and shopping galore.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit has been the wedding suite of choice for the staff at Shell Island. They call our suite the 'Travolta Suite', named after a recent guest who selected our unit over all the rest of the units in the building. Opera star Jessye Norman loved our unit as well - but the our marble bath is so cool, everyone tends to sing there, at least in the shower....

Our unit is far and away the finest unit at Shell Island. Shell Island has two levels, standard and premier. Ours is a 'Premier unit on Steroids'. Proof is that our's was the highest grossing unit last year. Why? Because once you stay there, you will want to keep asking for Unit 803 By The Sea!

We are high on the 8th floor, and the view is spectacular. Shell Island recently underwent a $10,000,000 renovation, and it looks fabulous, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love Shell Island, but after staying in room 803, I will not stay in any other. I have shared my birthdays, graduation, and remembrance of my Father's death all in this room over the years. I live in Wilmington, but still choose to stay here time and time again. Thank you!

Beautiful suite with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here in early November for a friend's wedding. Of the 3 other suites I saw where friends or the wedding party were staying, this was by far the nicest. The view from the balcony is wonderful. I did find the bathroom to be a bit awkward as there are only thin sliding pocket doors to close it off from the bedroom - which doesn't provide any privacy at all. I was also disappointed that I couldn't use the body sprayers in the shower because there were no handles for them. Overall, I enjoyed my stay very much and the suite was perfect for my needs!

Relaxing beach vacation

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed this relaxing beach vacation. The condo was clean and had a wonderful view of the North end of the island. Great for walking on the beach or through the neighborhood. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating with extra towels and sheets even though this was a private owned condo and did not come with daily maid service. The condo is rather small so best for a couple. There is no bath tub for small children, rather small refrigerator and only a cook top so we didn't cook in. The pull-out couch was not comfortable (we had 2 teenagers) so best for young children.

Gorgeous Beach Digs!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at unit 803 in July of 2014 while visiting family in Wilmington. It was every bit as good as I had hoped it would be. The built in storage in the bedroom allowed me to completely unpack a week's worth of clothes, shoes, luggage, etc and put everything away! The king sized bed was extremely comfortable and every bit as nice as my Tempur-pedic at home. There was enough of a variety of bed pillows that I was able to find one perfect for me. There is a window in the bedroom, but it is covered with sumptuous drapes that block out the outside view of the hallway and provide ample privacy.

The bathroom is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show. Water pressure is great, temperature is great. The host left more than enough in the way of towels, washcloths and so forth. A couple of hooks on the walls both inside the shower stall and on the bathroom walls allowed me plenty of room to hang wet swimsuits and towels.

The living room is also every bit as nice as the pictures show. The view is spectacular, even if it is a rainy day. Tranquil sunrise coffee on the deck is a must for early morning risers. The sofa is small, but very well made; and, according to my niece, turns into a rather comfortable full sized sleeper bed. The kitchen is surprisingly well equipped considering the size of the unit, and I was able to prepare all my meals with the prep equipment on hand. The microwave pictured has convection capabilities, in case anyone is curious. Having a refrigerator and a kitchen allowed me to eat in for most meals, saving me some serious dinero.

The resort itself is very nice and well maintained. The staff were all friendly and able to assist and give advice on things to do and see in the area. Parking was in a deck (!) which meant the inside of the car wasn't 1,000,000 degrees from being in the sun. The pool was nice; the 'hot tub' wasn't heated, and seemed to serve mostly as a toddler splash pool (maybe it is not a hot tub in hot weather).

Because of the size of the unit, I would recommend it mostly for singles, couples and parents with one or two younger children. The host was cordial and helpful as needed.

I will be staying here again. This was absolutely fabulous.
