Perfect house for a large group! Unbelievable views!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental for a girls weekend away. We slept 11 people very comfortably. Friday night we had a personal chef come in and we're able to seat everyone on the back porch overlooking the sound. The house had everything you could think of for a wonderful weekend!

Fantastic Property any time of the Year

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this fabulous house at the end of September and wrote a review on October 8th. I made a mistake and hit 4 stars when actually I meant to make this property 5 stars. When I finished my review, I forgot to go back and fix that and hit submit. It was too late to fix this and I could not change this. I felt compelled to come back in and redo the review because I want future renters to know that this house is in a beautiful setting, located at the end of Wrightsville Beach, and is really a 5 star rental. The best thing about it is that you have the view of the grasslands from the back of the house which has unbelievable sunsets, as well as you can walk across the street, take a left and you have an inlet to yourself. You are at the end of the beach, which is much more private than anywhere else. The Shell Island Resort is the only property left on the beach, and then the inlet is all yours!

We stayed in many properties on the beach in Wilmington, and this one is really special.I felt so strongly about this that I wanted to let anyone looking up this property to know that it truly is a 5 star home!!

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was married in a small wedding on the beach and the reception was held at The Beach House. I couldn't begin to tell you how great this house is and how easy Allison, the owner, is to work with.

My husband had a massive stroke a couple of months before the wedding and the elevator was a life saver. We had 11 people staying there preparing for the wedding and reception and it never felt crowded.

I hope to stay there again.

OK, one negative, but very minor. No clocks in the bedrooms.

Amazing location with an amazing house

  • 4 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at the "Beach House", a sprawling 6 bedroom home located at the very end of Wrightsville beach in North Carolna. It has 4 floors with an elevator, indoor pool and a jacuzzi! The beach is right across the street (and the Shell Island Resort is located to the left of the public access). Beyond the Shell Island Resort on the left is nothing but a beautiful inlet that is all to your own! So beautilful and the water turns green when you go around this point. It is gorgeous! The house sits on a beautiful sunset view of grasslands with peaceful herons that fly in and the view is spectacular and goes on for miles. The house is very accommodating with lots of decking for relaxing, a shuffleboard court that we turned into a cornhole competition, and a hammock to catch the nice breezes. It is so quiet and peaceful, has bikes if you want to get some exercise and great restaurants on the ocean close by. We ate dinner at the Fish House on the water and it was very good! Alison, the owner is very sweet and attended to our every need. We throughly had a great time! The weather could have been a little better but that is just something that cannot be controlled. You will not be disappointed!

Fantastic getaway place for large, multi-generational family.

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 just spent Memorial Day weekend at this property. We were wowed by this property the moment we arrived, and never got tired of it's beauty and convenience. The location is perfect, as it's literally across the street from the beach, and also has a magnificent view of the inter-coastal waterway on the other side. Wherever you look in this house (and there are big beautiful windows everywhere), you see stunning natural beauty.

We liked that this property was at the quieter end of the beach. The house had EVERYTHING you could ever need. Beach chairs. Kayaks. Shuffleboard. Bikes. The only thing we had to provide was food (oh, and beach towels...don't forget to bring your own).

We had all generations with us from 4 years old to 84 years old, and everyone was very pleased. The pool and hotub were also very nice. And the elevator was very convenient.

Would definitely stay here again! We absolutely loved it.

A fantastic property!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I traveled to NC for the "Wilmington Komen Race for the Cure" and stayed at this property and were completely amazed at how wonderful the house and amenities were. There was more than enough room for the 8 of us to enjoy together and private time. Thank you Allison for sharing your house with us!!!
