Great memories since I was a kid!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this duplex when I was a child for several summers in a row and I wanted my own kids to have the same experience. So many great memories, it was a highlight of my childhood and it didn't disappoint this time around. My kids loved it and wanted to stay forever. It was a home away from home. They have asked to go again since we got home. Carol was fabulous then 30 years ago as she was on this trip. I can't think of anything negative, it was wonderful. I would give it more then 5 stars if I could. Loved every minute.

Perfect house, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful vacation spot for us! The owner was so wonderful to work with, linen rental was easy and effortless and they were also very nice!!!! This house was very comfortable for our large group - and was well stocked with all the necessary kitchen items, plus fun items (ping pong table set up was perfect!) The Neighbors were very friendly and also helpful with information about the area and things to do:) Would highly recommend this house! We hope to stay here again with another group of friends and family! Thank you for a great get away!

Prefect home for family beach getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing in so many ways. Perfect location away from the crowded part of the beach, trail to beach directly behind the house.

The house has 2 units with a common area in the middle with a ping pong table and places to sit and chill.

The lower level provided great shade for the kids to play and draw with chalk. They even have an elevator. Carole the owner was super sweet in making sure that we had everything we needed for our stay.

One of the best beach houses we have stayed at. We can't wait to come back again!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides and it was the perfect house for our family - all 16 of us! Carole was very sweet and helpful with everything! Loved that the living area was all on one floor and that there was an elevator. Look forward to renting again!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented one side of the duplex and it was wonderful. Carol was the sweetest and most kind person I have ever worked when renting a vacation home. There were A couple things that was not exactly right but she immediately called someone to correct the problem. Which was corrected immediately.

We have rented several homes on Wrightsville Beach and this was by far the best. We will definitely be back. Due to an unexpected death in our family, Carol allowed us to stay longer then planned. This helped make A bad situation easier to handle. Thanks C arol
