About Paula Turner

We are Mark and Paula Turner. Mark custom built this house for our family in 2005. We have enjoyed having many wonderful large family gatherings here in our home as well as opening our doors for family and friends visiting from out of town. When you live at Wrightsville Beach everyone wants to come and visit. It is our little slice of Paradise. Everything we need is within walking or biking distance from the house. The sunsets are breath taking. We walk this beautiful beach almost every morning.

Paula Turner purchased this house in 2005

Why Paula Turner chose Wrightsville Beach

Pristine beaches, safety, great restaurants, self contained community. Outdoor water sports, boating, surfing, fishing, skiing, wakeboarding, kite boarding, diving, snorkeling you name it. If you can do it on the water you can do it here. Close proximity to Mayfaire Town Center, a mega shopping development. Only 15 minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington and the Riverfront.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, living on the marsh, lush tropical landscaping, enjoying the abundant wildlife, especially the birds. Being able to kayak or canoe from your backyard to the waterways, sounds and even the ocean. Open floor plan with triple doors off the main living area. These triple doors open up allowing the outside living area and the inside living area to become one, giving the house an open airy tropical Caribbean feel. Please note that this private home is in a quite residential neighborhood and does not allow party events to be held here.

Amazing home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is unbelievable! Very spacious, great sound side views, and just a quick 7-10 minute walk to the beach. The home is very well equipped and ideal for family gatherings. Our family spent the week of Fourth of July here leading up to a wedding and every single one of us could not stop raving about this home! Thank you Mark and Paula for sharing your home with our family and we will definitely be back again!

More Beautiful Than Expected - June 20, 2016 - June 27, 2016

  • 5 of 5

We were in Wrightsville Beach for our son's wedding and had a large gathering of family with us. I contacted Paula over a year in advance after viewing their lovely home online. She was willing to work out dates that suited our needs and was wonderful to work with. On the last day of our stay the microwave died and Mark was there within the hour to replace it.

The home was even more beautiful than expected. The location was perfect and within minutes of all the wedding venues. We had family and friends coming in and out during the week and they too thought the house was amazing. With the porches and 2 gathering areas inside there was plenty of room for us to visit with one another.

We hope to return with family and friends again.

Thanks Paula and Mark!!

Beautiful and confortable!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and provide all the comforts of home. We were able to enjoy the few days we had with family and everyone able to have some space of their own. The short walk to the beach was easy and close. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful beach home with us. Even better was that we could bring Gus our 2 year old lab and he had plenty of space in the yard to play. Thank you again for providing a great get together place for large families. Would definitely stay again.

This is the 4th home I have rented in Wrightsville Beach and by far the very best experience.

  • 5 of 5

I rented Mark and Paula's home to celebrate my son's graduation from UNCW and also made this our yearly family vacation. We had family drop in and out all week and the lay out of the house really allowed everyone privacy and also promoted and allowed for togetherness. Wonderful open space and large bedrooms. The beach is only a short walk away but in reality, nobody really wanted to leave the back deck. The kitchen was beyond adequately furnished with dishes, bowls, silverware and every appliance we would have had at home plus a few (even a mixmaster). Paula and Mark were thoughtful and responsive to all of our requests for information ahead of the trip and to any needs during our stay. Just can't say enough about what a great experience renting this home was. We hope to return!

Car: not necessary

Our home sits on a tidal marsh. This means at medium to high tide you can launch a non motorized water craft, (kayak, canoe, paddle board, etc.) from the backyard. This water will access the waterways, sounds and even the ocean. At low tide there is a Public Access 1 block from our home. At this Public Access you can launch and retrieve unmotorized water craft at any tide at any time of the day or night. I have included a picture of the Access in our photos.
