Casa Blanca Wrightsville Beach recently had a propane pool heater put in. The cost if you would like the pool heated during your stay is $350 per week. Please let me know if this is something you are interested in so we can arrange to have it turned on during your stay. The heater is brand new so it should work great. It will take the pool from 65 degrees to 85 degrees so you and your guests would be able to enjoy the pool during the off season. If you have young ones joining you this would be a really fun addition. The pool is open year round but it would be chilly after mid October unless you opt to heat it. Please note that we cannot guarantee the pool heater and will refund the $350 charge in the event it does not work. The salt ocean is very hard and the heaters only last a short time at the beach. We are not able to give discounts on your nightly rental rate only a refund on the heater charge. It is brand new so it should work great though.

About Brooke Richardson
Bruce and Barbara Swenson purchased this upscale luxury vacation home in 2008. They fell in love with this home because of the most spectacular ocean views they have ever seen. It is truly a unique custom home. They hired one of the areas premier interior decorates to furnish the home. This home has been featured in many of the areas upscale publications. Bruce and Barbara are from the San Francisco Bay area and vacation in the home several weeks throughout the year so they can be close to their twin grandchildren that live just a few miles away from the beach house. Their son and daughter are local real estate agents in the Wilmington area and help to manage the vacation rental.

We have been coming to Wrightsvill Beach/Figure Eight Island for over 40 years and this is the nicest place we have ever stayed in. It is hard to find really clean homes in the area, Casa Blanca is spotless offering very comfortable living arrangements.
Tom said the same thing about you. Top notch guests. Thank you for taking great care of the home and leaving it pristine after your weeks stay. Hope you are able to come back year after year. We appreciate the wonderful review.
Fantastic rental property!
Well appointed home. We had never been to North Carolina and wanted to explore but found we would rather stay at this incredible house and relax. Pool is amazing, beach is right in front of the house. Beds were so comfortable! We will be back!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and for taking excellent care of the home. It is a special place and we hope you will be able to return in the years to come.
Beautiful but comfortable house w/ unbeatable view
This house is beautiful. It maximizes the ocean views more than any other beach house I've stayed in. The front and back yard, in addition to the gorgeous pool and patio, provided a ton of space for our children to play- in the times that we weren't down at the beach. The house was clean and the owner and manager were very attentive and responsive- when we needed help with anything but also with restaurant recommendations, etc. I highly recommend this property!!!
Thanks for the lovely reply and for taking great care of the home. We hope you will be able to come stay again in the future.

Lovely property in every way.
This lovely property was more than spacious and equipped for our family of 6 adults and two babies. It was comfortably and tastefully appointed and we felt right at home. The view was gorgeous and it’s location easily accessible to restaurants and shopping. We had hoped the heated pool would be warm enough that we didn’t actually have to get used to the water( almost hot tub temp). It was not. I should have asked. Overall, a fabulous rental.
Thank you for the feedback and I am glad you enjoyed the home. I wish you would have called us as we are able to adjust the pool temp and would have been happy to turn it up for you. If you are able to visit again please remind me and I will have the pool temp set so that you can enjoy it. Hope you are able to return.
Amazing home at the perfect location
We love, love, love this house. We come here at least twice a year and it feels like home. The place has a wonderful open feel with spectacular views. One of the best things is the heated pool. You don't even need to leave the house bc you have everything right at your fingertips. We love this place and it won't disappoint you.
Beautiful home very well equipped for a relaxing vacation. Perfect for families with small children.
