Awesome Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends were in Wrightsville Beach for the wedding of our son and this house was spacious, inviting and provided amazing views of sunsets over the the intercoastal and sunrises over the ocean. Tara, the Property manager, is a dream to work with and the layout of the house provides areas for family time as well as private time. I will definitely book this house again.

Wonderful home with amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a location for a work retreat and we could not have been happier! the location is superb and the views are breathtaking. It was lovely to watch the sunrise over the ocean and the sunset over the intercostal. The house was incredibly spacious and having a pool, hottub AND Sauna! was definitely a plus! We would absolutely book this for another retreat.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend stay. Very unique to have a deck with ocean views on one side and incredible sound views on the other. Beautiful home, with all the amenities. We really enjoyed using the projector screen in the evenings. Highly recommend this house for any vacation!

Beauty Only Skin Deep

  • 3 of 5

This was our second year renting this house for a week. Last year we provided the owner with a list of "fixes" like new grills, (these went on but didn't heat up beyond 200 degrees with an oven thermometer), wasted a day of vacation waiting for another one. The main refrigerator went out (we lost $200 worth of food) and we wasted another day waiting for a repairman. There were 14 people and we had to go three flights down for our food to the garage 3X's a day. The property manager got us a second refrigerator, but it was terribly inconvenient going to the garage for food. While the house is situated in an ideal location across from a beautiful beach, the kitchen is very outdated (microwave has rust and no turntable). Our family members had to bring the replacement grill up from outside because it was just dropped off. One bath towel, hand towel and face cloth for 7 days means a lot of washing. While we were assured that the above appliance items had been fixed from last year -- they were not, which was disappointing. This property is up for sale and the owners will get a rude awakening on an inspection report if the outdated kitchen is left "as is". Some doors to the outside porches don't lock. This is a good location if you plan to eat all meals out, and are only staying for a few days. We lost 2 days of a 7 day vacation because repair people wont come in unless someone is in the house and lost food when the refrig heated up to 60 degrees. This property needs a lot of work. We were very disappointed that our suggestions from last year weren't taken seriously, otherwise these appliances would have been fixed. We won't be renting this property next year.
