Bedrooms 4
Space 3,300 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

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

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.

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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is open and inviting. The back deck is fabulous- we has great weather and hung out all day on the dock. We had a party for my son who is joining the Coast Guard- the house is big enough for a crowd. We loved our stay!!

The perfect place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

John McAdams, the owner was very pleasant and easy to communicate with from the initial inquiry through the entire stay.

The house was extremely well appointed but had a lived in feel which made for a more relaxed atmosphere.

The large well stocked kitchen made dealing with a large group a lot easier.

The house was in a wonderful location with very easy access and a lot of available free street parking (a rarity) as well. There was a very large deck and dock which accessed the Intracoastal Waterway but was also a short walk to the beach. We came for my daughter's wedding and had at over 50 guests over for an after-wedding brunch reception. The open floor plan and spaciousness of the outside deck/dock easily accommodated everybody and there were rave reviews from all on what a perfect place to have had the goodbye breakfast.

I would definitely consider renting this house in the future.The only advice I would give any future renters would be to bring your own beach towels.

beautiful house with rocking chairs facing the sound we never left

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week with friends and family, room for everyone to have their own big bed (except for 3 married couples). We came after the scare of 2 hurricanes in late September 2017 and we had very sunny weather. The master bedroom upstairs is like a suite and has its own deck facing the sound. One of the delights of the location is the fun of watching the constant parade of small boats, kayaks.and paddleboards.

John McAdams, the owner, is a very pleasant person to deal with.
