About Irene Kennedy
We have lived in Raleigh, NC, for 30 years, although I originated in Washington, DC, and my husband in North Dakota, combining a military family and an academia family. We both went to school here in NC at UNC-CH and NCSU.
Irene Kennedy purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Irene Kennedy chose Wrightsville Beach
We love WB for its family-friendly atmosphere and because many of our favorite things to do here are within walking distance, and it's only 2 hrs away from where we live in Raleigh. Our cottage is located in the heart of the island, 2 blocks from recently restored Johnny Mercer's Pier where you can pick up Sunday papers. Our 2 daughters grew up spending summers here and have many fond memories of time spent with friends and family.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage was built in 1939 and has the charm and coziness of an older cottage--good bones, you might say. The sunrises, sunsets and breezes on the porch are soothing, as are the birds chirping in the eucalyptus tree and Chinese Elm outback. Breezes from the ocean and the sound flow through, lulling guests to calm, peace, connectedness.

We had a great visit to Wrightsville. As a family of four, we loved the proximity to restaurants/ice cream. Our one recommendation would be the addition of a grill.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at this cottage. The house and property was very clean and Irene was very responsive to my questions and needs. Also, the cottage is very quaint and is situated in a great location on Wrightsville Beach. I would recommend this property to anyone and plan on returning.
Rental June 2019
We had a very good time and very satisfied with the home. The beach chairs were good so we did not have to bring our own. The best was the wagon it made the trip back and forth so easy, we did't have to carry anything. My husband enjoyed in the out door shower. Parking was good being undercover it kept the cars a lot cooler. The only thing we wished you had was another TV and in the master bedroom some place to do hair and not use the bathroom. We had a wonderful time in your home. Thanks Pat
Great suggestions, Pat! Thanks for being a wonderful guest!
