Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Shell Island - Suite #714 Shell Island Resort

Oceanfront Luxurious Condo Five-Star Amenities Newly Renovated

New beautifully decorated, oceanfront condominium overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, miles of beach, a nearby inlet and and a vast savanna in a resort-type setting.This is not your average beach rental

This elegant condominium is located at the Northern end of Wrightsville Beach,the premier beach in North Carolina.

Located on the 7th floor at Shell Island Resort , the unit is accessible by both elevator and stairs.

Enter and proceed down the tiled entry hall to get your first breathtaking view of the Atlantic ocean through a wall of windows. A sliding glass door takes you to the to the balcony and the sound of the surf.

The granite and tiled kitchenette is well-equipped with designer dishes and cookware. The kitchen is open to the living area .

A comfortable living area with leather sofa bed and recliner offers stunning views of the ocean and opens to the private balcony. Or just kick back and watch a game on the 42' flat screen television. Not a TV fan. A flick of the DVD button converts it in the Winter to a crackling fireplace and in the summer to a bubbling aquarium. Bring your I Pod and a Bose Docking Station will provide you with your own personal music favorites or use our selections.

The master bedroom features a king 4 poster bed with 800 thread count sheets. Open the drapes to view a vast Savannah. The 'his and her' vanity bath includes a custom tiled shower.

All linens and towels are provided as are complete sets of dinnerware and cookware.

This condo is 700 sq feet which includes one bedroom and a living area with a sofa bed.

There are lots of on-site amenities, as well as lots to do and see nearby. Shell Island Resort boasts a ocean-side pool and hot tub as well as a indoor heated pool for winter swimming. There is a well equipped fitness center and bike rentals. Beach chairs and umbrellas are also available. The resort has an excellent and reasonably priced restaurant and there are also plenty of fine restaurants in the area.

Historic and charming downtown Wilmington is only twenty minutes away, and boasts great historic sites, charming shops, art galleries, and great restaurants.

Water sports abound in the area, including surfing, sailboarding, jet and water skiing,diving, boating, kayaking, surf and deep sea fishing. Or just go down to the beach and relax

This was our 5th stay at SI. This unit is absolutely the best. Super clean w/ high quality furniture/fixtures. On the way home, we booked w/ the owner for next year's trip!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i had a very pleasant stay at Allison's property; she has done a remarkable fix up to a dated building. We would love to stay there again and look forward to a return visit.

Great spot for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Property was spotless, beautiful views of the water, great balcony to sip coffee on. Three of us went and it was just enough space. The kitchen is small but completely adequate for light cooking and meal prep. The resort has a great pool and outside bar, and the beach wasn't too crowded. Highly recommend!

Excellent well decorated suite

  • 5 of 5

This is a small suite, suitable for 2 people, although with the pull-out couch more could conceivably sleep there, but it would be crowded. Unlike the other suites at Shell Island, this one has been decorated very nicely. The king bed (4-poster) is wonderful. The view from the 7th floor is spectacular. Has all the amenities you would want. Very nice!

Nice luxury condo with a great view

  • 5 of 5

With ocean front properties seeing the most wear and tear from the wind and salt air, you sometimes expect a little less. Overall, Shell Island is well maintained and in a quieter section of Wrightsville Beach. Views of the ocean are perfect and staff at the resort friendly. We found this condo well stocked and the furniture comfortable. I didn't take care into noticing there was no oven/stove but found the toaster oven oversized so sufficient for most cooking needs. The decor was tastefully done and made good use of the efficiency space. The mirrored walls did make the room look much larger than it really is but still - for 2 people - the space was adequate. Floor to ceiling windows and a nice balcony overlooking the ocean made for a very pleasant view. We read warnings about the smelly water - and yes, it did smell - but we came equipped with bottled water. After running the water for a little bit, using the water to take a shower and brush teeth was fine. The only suggestion we have is to upgrade the tv to HD. With a condo of this level (and most people being used to HG on their televisions at home), it does make a difference. I don't recall seeing departure cleaning instructions so having this available before arrival (or included with the info in the condo) would be helpful. We appreciated the promptness of the owner's responses to questions too.

One of the best rooms at Shell Island!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Shell Island resort a few times and this room by far the nicest. Updated and made to feel like a home away from home - and not your average beach resort rental. The oceanfront view was beautiful and the room was clean. The owner Alison was very responsive and accommodating. We look forward to staying here again this summer.
