For those looking for old school style beach cottage, this is the place. Built in 1929, this cottage provides the best of both the old and the new. The river wood hardwood floors provide the look and smell of days gone by, while the updated kitchen, Wi-Fi, flat screen tvs and updated interior provide the comforts of home. The ocean is readily available as is the feeling of getting away. Once parked, there is no need to move the car. Great restaurants and Robert's Grocery are within a stone's throw, as well as Johnny Mercer's pier for some fishing. You will find this location central to all things Wrightsville Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Crimora,

I just wanted to write and thank you for our wonderful week at Wrightsville Beach in your delightful, peaceful, lovely house on East Oxford Street.

We had such a relaxing time - with great weather, and we very much enjoyed sitting on your sweet front porch every morning (with coffee) and every late afternoon.

You are so kind to share your house and allow people like us - who are craving both solitude and joyful beach time - to slip easily into such a wonderful home for a week of rest.

It could not have been more pleasant or more convenient. It definitely reminded me of the many summers that our family spent at Wrightsville, as your house has that wonderful old-time feel.

The updates on your historic home are fantastic... beautiful panelling, great bathrooms and modern kitchen. It is totally perfect.

Thank you so much again for allowing us to stay in your Wrightsville home. It may have been our best, most relaxing vacation ever! (We cried in the car on the way home.)

Best to you,

C.G.and R.G

Durham, NC

p.s. And, the key pick-up & drop-off was easy, with a good information packet. Friendly and helpful folks! The house was very well-cleaned and ready for us.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with all aspects of this cottage. Very clean, it was extremely well stocked with utensils, pots and pans and even games and puzzles as we rode out the storm this past weekend. Crimora was very easy to communicate with, and the keypad on the door makes having a larger group super easy to come and go as they please. The other reviews seemed to under-sell the location of the house. You are only about 5 houses away from the beach access, most in our party didn't wear shoes the entire time we were at the cottage as it was so close. Also, Roberts is less than .5 miles down the road as are a couple of bars and restaurants. The house had lots of beach chairs and even boogie boards. All this with a beautiful front porch that had plenty of seating and shade after long days at the beach. Thanks Crimora for a lovely stay!

Relax, it's been taken care of...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed every minute in this cosy cottage. The hosts clearly make the right kind of effort to make our stay enjoyable. First, everything worked..televisions, cable, and wi-fi. Second, all the tools one normally needs in life were there and easy to find. That included a ringed cake pan, plenty of extra garbage bags, and matches to light candles with. Finally, we all loved the ability to walk easily to interesting places--like Robert's Grocery (i.e. doughnut shop), the sound side of the island, and the beach. This place made our vacation, but don't take my word for it... please...since we'd like to keep the competition for future rentals to a minimum! ;-)

Great authentic Wrightsville cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Oleander Cottage. It was very comfortable, with many touches that made our stay extra enjoyable. From the bikes to beach chairs, to the well stocked kitchen and comfortable rooms, we thoroughly enjoyed our week. We would definitely book this house again. I loved having our dog with us, and she loved the morning walks for fresh doughnuts! It was an easy walk to the beach or the sound. A great plus is being close to restaurants and Roberts grocery store, but not so close as to be bothered by noise late at night. The owners provided a comfortable, inviting home. Thank you for sharing it with us!

A Beautiful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation, and this beach house was an awesome place to stay! The house was meticulously clean, all of the linens and towels were fresh and crisp, and the kitchen has everything you could ever need. We were so comfortable staying here, it was like we were in our own house! The owners were incredibly attentive. We had one mechanical issue and they immediately fixed it for us, Crimora was a pleasure to work with. The location cannot be beat, and the beach and water were so pretty. I could have stayed another week for sure! If we get back to Wilmington again soon, I would not hesitate to stay here again. If you are thinking of renting this house, do it! You will not be disappointed!
