About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-15)

SPECIAL: just had a cancellation. RIGHT NOW July 10-15 available (up to 5 nights, Monday-Saturday). Regularly $570/night; NOW $400/night; 3 night minimum.

Incredible View of the Sound and Marshland with easy access to the water for swimming, fishing, kayaking, or boating right off the dock. Two kayaks are provided. Bring your boat and moor it alongside the floating dock. Enjoy the hammock and rocking chairs for sunbathing, reading, or just enjoying the spectacular sunsets in this private setting. This bright and sunny house has four bedrooms and four baths - six Queen beds total plus a large sleeper sofa in the TV room. It is a cozy place for a couple who want a beautiful setting (waterfront decks off the master bedroom and living room) and it can easily accommodate over a dozen people! Tie YOUR boat up alongside the floating dock.

Just outside the front door is 'The Loop' - Wrightsville's famous 2.4-mile paved walking/jogging trail encircling Harbor Island. You are also a short walk to the beach, fishing pier, arcade, local park, museum, restaurants and boutiques. Water skiing and jet ski area is within sight of the dock. Boat launching ramp and jet ski rental are nearby.

NOTE: Priced as one of the best values at Wrightsville Beach, this house fills up fully year-round.

Still some limited availability in 2016

(Mar 24)The week of July 3-10 just opened up, $4,200 base rent.

No long-term rentals. (Sorry, UNC-W students, but we enjoy using the house occasionally ourselves.)

Check availability calendar; we keep it (nearly) up to date.


Our house is absolutely wonderful for holding receptions, as some of the pictures show. The dock over the water offers a really unique reception venue; and the layout of the main floor of the house is a very open floor plan and would provide a good place to retreat to if a rain shower comes along. We suggest the following companies to help with an event:

-Caterer: Middle Of The Island Catering 910-256-4273. Ask for C.M.

-Party supplies: Party Supplies and Rentals 910-791-0024. Ask for Anna Rivenbark

-Event Shuttle Service 910-398-8333 Ask for Amanda. (NOTE: Guest parking is NOT allowed along our street, by city ordinance. Dang!)

Email responses are the easiest to respond to; but we'll accept/return your phone calls, too. Come to Wrightsville Beach for an exciting and relaxing time, and create some great memories!

(Minimum age of primary renter is 25.)

This house has a wide-open 'million dollar view' of Wrightsville Sound. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets visible from each level of the deck in the summer. Sitting in rocking chairs on the covered deck, looking out across the water, is incredibly peaceful. Have dinner on the deck as the sun sets. And the sound is a great playground. Fish from the dock, catch crabs in the trap, take the kayaks out to explore, or just watch the rise and fall of the tide through the day, and the occasional pair of porpoises swimming by the house. Bring your boat and explore, fish, ski or wakeboard right behind the house.

This place was top notch.

From the views off the deck, to the openness of the floor plan. This was a great place for our golf trip. Close to all of our Wrightsville favorite restaurants and bars. I would most definetly recommend this place. Owner was very responsive to all my questions pre- visit.

One of the best parts of our visit was where we stayed on Wrightsville Beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and we were very lucky that the weather was very mild. The house was spacious and we had plenty of room for the entire family. The owner was super helpful and had us at ease immediately. There were no problems and we hope to rent this house again. The location was ideal. The house had easy access to the city, stores, and beach. Although, we did not venture to the beach, it would have been easy to have gone. However, we were there to help celebrate a family wedding and our time was limited. All the comforts of home were there for us to enjoy. The visit was hectic but coming home to this beautiful hose helped to subdue the stress. The views of the water from so many lovely windows were breath-taking and as I said before, would love to rent this house again.

The property was fantastic. Well kept with a spacious layout and a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful time spending 4 nights in October at this beautiful home. The view was incredible. The house has so many windows that natural light is all you need. The extensive deck / dock made for a very comfortable place to have an afternoon libation. Not only could we kayak over to the marsh after launching right behind the house, but a few speckled trout and flounder were fooled from the dock as well. Everything was first class! Thank you kindly for such an enjoyable weekend!

"This place is sweet!" "Awesome!" "Oh my gosh, that view!" "I don't want to leave!"

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Waterfront House at Wrightsville Beach during the first week of October because our son was getting married in Wilmington. With an immediate family size of 15 and an extended family of 30+, who traveled for the wedding, we needed a place where we could all come to visit. There were 4 spacious bedrooms, but the "gathering" areas were what made our stay comfortable and amazing! The huge great room with the wall of windows facing the sound was a favorite! The house has a large, well equipped kitchen too. We were able to have a few cooks in the kitchen for breakfasts and dinners with plenty of room for prep. But the covered porches and huge dock were amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better home to host our families! However, we did have one uninvited guest- Hurricane Matthew- who tried, but DID NOT put a damper on our stay. While shutters were closed, we played cards/games and just had fun inside! (We never lost power) John, the owner of this house, kept in contact with us and let us know what we should do to stay safe and keep the house safe. We are appreciative of John's concern and communication during this time and were amazed at his generosity. As he told us, we have made some great memories at this house and we will definitely be back! If you want or need a large house near the water, (the beach is a short walk away!) this is the place for you!
