Wrightsville Beach House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

HOLD A RECEPTION !

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.)

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!

Awesome house!!

We rented this house because our daughter was getting married in Wilmington. It was so spacious!! We hosted a pre-wedding get together on the deck outside. It was a perfect space for this. The view is beautiful. Highly recommend this location!!

Awesome House

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 couples stay in this house over Labor Day weekend. Some of us stayed 4 nights and other stayed 3 nights. The house was very accommodating for 5 couples. The kitchen is large as well as the living space. The upstairs master suite has gorgeous views and plenty of space. The outside back deck was quite enjoyable. We even made use of the crab trap and kayaks. I would definitely recommend anyone who has numerous couples, or a large party, to stay here. Being from Ohio, we found the "cock roaches" to be a slight issue. We don't know if it was from being so close to the water or it being a southern thing, but we did see a number of what we thought to be cock roaches on the back deck, in the kitchen and on the main floor. Also, the owner of the home was extremely responsive to all of my questions. Each time I emailed him with a question, I got a response within the hour. This is definitely a place I would stay again and recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: We are really pleased these guests enjoyed our house; and we agree it accommodates large groups excellently. On the issue of cockroaches (which the locals say they've re-branded as "Palmetto Bugs") their presence results from our proximity to water but still should not be in the house, and we have stepped-up the exterminator service to treat the house more frequently.

Great view with a dock

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Wonderful huge main room w fantastic view of the marsh and ICW beyond. We enjoyed dolphin swimming right past the included boat dock.

Bedroons are large and very comfortable. Kitchen is also large and very well equipped.

Had fun with the included kayaks too.

This was our second time renting this property and won't be our last.

Excellent, quiet large house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 shared a 5 day vacation here and could not have been more pleased. The owner provided us with everything we needed, and was there to promptly answer any questions. The house comfortably fit us all. The enormous deck provided a ton of entertainment; the kayaks were an awesome addition and were well used. The view from the master suite is unbeatable. The house is excellently located and a very short walk to the beach and nightlife of Wrightsville Beach. We would highly recommend this vacation spot and will be back again.

Notes:
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.
