About Carol Ann Zinn

A beach-lover since childhood, it's always been my dream to own my own special home in the exceptional beach town of Wrightsville Beach, located just outside the historic city of Wilmington. As a professional designer, I thoughtfully detailed and furnished the home to welcome and comfort visiting friends and family, and now I am offering it to you for your use as well.

Carol Ann Zinn purchased this house in 2006

Why Carol Ann Zinn chose Wrightsville Beach

The Sanctuary is the best, non-oceanfront home in Wrightsville Beach. The home features 3 private decks and is located on Sunset Lagoon... Just two blocks from the ocean in a safe and quiet neighborhood!

When unwinding at the Sanctuary, you can wake up to the sun rising off the ocean and enjoy your morning beverage while overlooking the peaceful lagoon from the dock or one of our private decks.

What makes this house unique

The Sanctuary has a private, 30-foot dock in a scenic, deep-water lagoon. The lagoon, near Banks Channel and IntraCoastal Waterway, is great for swimming, kayaking, and boating! Bring your own or feel free to use our paddleboard and 2 kayaks as explore the nearby lagoons and marshes.

If you prefer to stay on land, you can take a stroll to downtown Wrightsville Beach or use one of our bikes as you explore the area.

Inside the Sanctuary is a cook's kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolfe appliances. The spacious, 6 bathroom's in this designer's home feature unique tile detail and plumbing fixtures.The master bedroom suite has a private deck overlooking the beautiful lagoon and a steam shower.

During the off-season or after a day at the beach, you can entertain and unwind with our 3 plasma TV's, the ping-pong table, and Beach cart.

Beautiful house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for my nephew's wedding weekend. The house was lovely and spacious with beautiful dining and living room areas. In a short walk we could be at the beach or relax on any of the outdoor decks at the house and enjoy the lagoon views. The master bedroom is very special with its own deck that has a partial view of the ocean.

The owner provided a very detailed booklet on the house including how it was to be left for checkout. Pay attention to this book and be sure to follow the instructions for your departure to avoid extra cleaning charges!

The house was excellent but some of the equipment needs updating. The BBQ didn't work and we needed to bring food back into the house to cook, the dishwasher didn't work well and the coffee maker took a very long time to brew. These items were pointed out to the owner and she sent a handyman to look at them. She said she was going to replace the BBQ.

The whole experience was wonderful, these details didn't detract from our experience.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate helpful guest comments and suggestions. The BBQ grill was indeed replaced, the dishwasher underwent maintenance from our wonderful handyman, and we have a new coffee maker on the way. Important to note that our Wrightsville Beach team is responsive and helpful- and just a phone call away. We do maintain a pristine property with great value. Hence, our check out procedure asks for a little more attention on our guests' part to keep our rental cost down.

Truly a sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at 'The Sanctuary' the week of May 26th and had an amazing vacation. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for an immaculate and extremely well appointed waterfront home. The house is spacious and boasts two large living rooms, several decks with great views of the surrounding marsh and ocean, and a large designer kitchen with a wonderful eating area. The house is situated in a very quiet neighborhood and we could easily walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops in Wrightsville. Everyone enjoyed kayaking in the marsh, swimming off of the big covered dock, playing ping pong, and riding bikes around Wrightsville Beach. The house is so beautifully decorated and maintained. We will definitely plan a return visit!

The property was exactly as promised. It was over the top.

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 other couples join us for a week long retirement celebration. The home exceeded all of our expectations. Once we all got settled in and learned the layout it was great. A/C, hot water, water pressure, bedding washer/dryer are my personal check points and they were excellent. We were lucky to have some "chefs" in our group and they enjoyed to kitchen to prepare wonderful meals. Even the gas grill was almost new.We rented linens from Seaside Linens and they were great and even opted for the beds to be made up. All of the beach equipment was new or in like new condition. Beach access is a short walk from the house. I would recommend this home to anyone seeking a large space.

What a Joke!!

  • 1 of 5

Do Not Stay at this HOUSE!!Read the reviews before putting a deposit you'll never see again.Stains on table,couches and carpet. limited kitchen supplies. How insulting! Dated elevtronics.TV repairman had to come after numerous calls to owner.

.Read the other comments before choosing the Sanctuary.NO MORALS!!!

Owner's Response: This is a review from an angry man whose guests at an engagement party damaged the cherry wood nook table with a big green stain. He objects to the $133 deduction from his deposit for a furniture specialist to come to the house to (thankfully) remove the stain. Our electronics were updated 2016. A storm knocked out the receiver, and my handyman promptly appeared at The Sanctuary to turn it on. The Sanctuary is a pristine rental, with plentiful kitchen appliances and meticulously cared for furnishings and carpet. No morals?? Come on!

Fabulously appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a corporate retreat at this location, and everyone really enjoyed their stay. The house is very well appointed and spacious. The owners have gone to great effort to make the house user friendly and have kept it well maintained. It truly felt like a Sanctuary!
