About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Imagine escaping to this Duneridge Estates vacation getaway. Picture yourself sitting on the deck. Now close your eyes, can you feel the summer breezes, glimpse the seagulls flying overhead and sense the sun gently beaming down on you... are you ready?

Step into the quiet world of 2314 N. Lumina Ave

located on the northern end of Wrightsville Beach on a private cul-de-sac with no public parking, this wonderful vacation property offers ocean views along with attractive and comfortable accommodations.

A spacious deck on the main level and two separate decks on the upper level offer a quiet place to escape and relax outdoors and take in the ocean just a short walk away.

Beautifully decorated inside and out, once you enter the tiled foyer you know you are about to experience a vacation home unlike all the rest. The open floor plan found in the main living area offers more than enough space for everyone to gather and share good times together. With a large and open kitchen the entire family can get together as meals or snacks are being prepared. This home boasts a breakfast nook, seating at the kitchen island and a formal dining area with more than enough room for everyone. With high ceilings and an abundance of natural light you will enjoy relaxing in the living room as you sink into one of the 2 soft leather couches or love seat. Also on this level are 2 bedrooms with a Jack 'n Jill bath. One bedroom has 2 full sized beds and the other offers a queen.

On the next level is the master suite with a king bed complete with its own deck and views of the Atlantic Ocean. Around the corner is the fourth bedroom with a built in bunk style beds with 2 full mattresses. Take a walk down the open hallway overlooking the living room and with oceans views out the upper level windows, and you will find the fifth bedroom with 2 full size beds.

If you need to get away by yourself for a little while, take a book and relax in the den as you get comfortable in the inviting leather chair or stretch out on the couch and watch some TV. Just off the den is an additional deck looking out on the ocean.

The ocean views, attractive accommodations and convenient beach access just steps away. The section of the beach is perfect for delightful walks to the the north and south. The beauty and convenience will make this your favorite vacation home!

About The Owner

Two families who have been friends for 25 years built and own this home. Our children were raised coming down to our house creating memories and family traditions.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

What makes this house unique

We enjoy walks on the beach, cooking meals for our guests, playing games, heading out to shop and eat at wonderful fine dining restaurants in nearby Wilmington. Riding bikes to the grocery store, filling our basket with snacks for our beach day. Breakfast on the deck, still in our PJ's. Walking the Wrightsville Beach loop.

Perfect family getaway

This was an ideal getaway for 2 families with children! The house is clean, well-equipped, and ideally located, and Virginia was incredibly friendly and accommodating in helping us to have a great vacation. Would highly recommend this location!

Amazing Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this beautiful home. So close to the beach and is very accommodating! The owners are very nice and willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay perfect. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a beach house rental.

Tennis Team

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 8 women who came to the area to play in a tennis tournament. The location was great, just steps from the beach and easy distance to the tennis courts. The house setup is great and comfortable for our group. We cooked dinner at the house every night (which we prefer), played games in the comfortable living room and dining room. The house was well stocked and clean. Hopefully we'll be back next year and enjoy it all over again!

  • 5 of 5

We used all 5 bedroom and enjoyed the location of the house with it's close access to beach and amenities. The house is furnished well with everything needed to prepare and serve meals, new appliances and most important, plenty of space. If we come back and race, or just to vacation at Wrightsville Beach, will definitely check on this listing for availability!

This is the 5th time my extended family has stayed at this particular house- it works out great for large groups with plenty of beds and parking. Easy walk to beach and good outdoor space- love outdoor shower.
