Cute cottage with great dock.

  • 5 of 5

Great house and convenient location. My family really enjoyed the dock. The one negative, was the noise. The bars nearby were very loud and it was hard to sleep at 1am.

Less than nice stay

  • 1 of 5

1) College kids upstairs were painful to co-exist with

2) Bar on the other side of the alley was challenging, loud music and partying until 2am every night.

3) The place is infested with black mold and mildew, some extensive uplifting needs to be done to avoid health hazards.

Owner's Response: I realize that my property is not for everyone. If a visitor wants shiny, new, or secluded, this is probably not the place for them! On the other hand, I personally clean the apartment after every tenant, and do my very best to offer a CLEAN, affordable place to stay. As our ad states, we are in the heart of Wrightsville Beach, so it can get noisy, and I can't really control that. The trade-off is the convenience of having restaurants and shops within walking distance. My family's 1970s cottage is great for vacationers who enjoy the outdoors, whether sitting on the dock or enjoying the beach strand, and taking advantage of what Wrightsville Beach has to offer.

Great Location, Beautiful Sunset!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place for the price. We really enjoyed being a short stroll to the beach for the sunrise, and rode our bikes up and down the island to beautiful views and yummy restaurants. Ended the day with sunset and a bottle of wine on the back patio. Bring bottled water for drinking/coffee; Wrightsville Beach water is not very tasty.

Couldn't pick a better location.

  • 4 of 5

Was a rustic little beach cottage in a perfect location. Great for a small family looking to spend time both at the beach and in the waterway and dock that are right in your backyard. The owner even stopped by to see if we needed anything. We would definitely rent again.

Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

PRO: Awesome location, home was clean, beautiful sunsets, within walking distance to fabulous food, beach, and fun.

CON:Older home, limited wifi connectivity, close neighbors, bring your own water!!, beds were broken down, no tv reception, tiny hot water heater limited showers to five minutes, and a local bar across the alley had heavy patronage and very loud.

However Susan is a wonderful landlord as we had to depart a day early because of Hurricane Matthew and she voluntarily sent us a refund for that day!!! Thank you so much!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, although it was a little disheartening. I plan to address the issues that I can control, ie replacing mattresses and leaving detailed instructions for TV remotes. Beach water is unfortunately a fact of life here, as are close quarters with neighbors. Our location near downtown Wrightsville Beach affords visitors the opportunity to walk to all amenities, but can get noisy, so it might not appeal to everyone. Fortunately the beach is just steps away, and you can enjoy beautiful sunsets right over the dock in your front yard!
