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!

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This small condo was just what we needed for a few days of relaxation. Older couple, enjoyed being at the end of the island. Great view of the ocean, condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Could eat in if we wanted and restaurants just a short drive away. Easy beach access for long walks that were not crowded...plus indoor and outdoor pool and a hot tub.

Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville beach. The condo is beautiful, clean and well equipped! The view is absolutely breath taking! We enjoyed the sunrise and sunset from the condo. We also enjoyed the peaceful walk on the beach. You couldn't find a better beach anywhere. The north end of the island is a paradise. We also enjoyed the indoor pool and outdoor hot tub. We were so blessed to have beautiful warm weather in February. We were planning on going out for dinner but the condo was so nice we didn't want to leave. We took advantage of the well equipped kitchen and made dinner at the condo. We had candle light and it was so romantic. We live in Wilmington and this was a birthday get away! The views are just gorgeous. I would recommend you stay here for fun and relaxation. The owner was very helpful and we hope to take another winter getaway soon.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I highly recommend this property! We were looking for a convenient place to relax with a great view and this place definitely surpassed our expectations. This luxurious condo is well outfitted with a nice kitchen with everything needed to make a meal, exceptional bathroom, comfortable bedroom. However the best feature is the extraordinary view! We would definitely return to this unit on our next visit!

Unforgettable weekend at an unforgettable property

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I have somewhat of a tradition of visiting the beach every year on the weekend before Christmas. We were happy to stumble upon this place online when looking for accomodations. And let me tell you, we were not disappointed. What a treasure this place is! It looks exactly like the photos, only better! The view is breathtaking! When they say oceanfront property, they mean it. The building is so close to the water that often it felt almost as if we were on a cruise...not really, but you get the idea :) . It was a very cozy space and perfect for a romantic getaway as there is not alot of privacy for much more than that, in my opinion. Everything was clean and in perfect working order. The bed was comfy. The staff was pleasant. The restaurant food was good. I can't say enough good things. To top it all of, my boyfriend proposed to me on Johnny Mercer's pier at sunset!!!! Without a doubt, this resort and this unit, in particular, holds a special place in our hearts and we will definitely be back!

Thanksgiving at Shell Island, Wrightsville Beach, NC.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a couple to stay. All the amenities and space needed to enjoy the ocean and walk the beach. The condo was outfitted perfectly with all needed to cook in or as simply a nest to read and enjoy the tremendous view. The staff at the front desk were so friendly, greeting everyone with a smile and wishes for a good holiday. Shell Island is a special place and #803 must the best unit in the resort. We have stayed at several and will certainly return to this particular one. Cozy and warm and the dolphin sightings just add to the pleasure. BRAVO. By the way all the TV's work easily without resorting to a manual!!!
