A studio favorite. Past summer home for actors Danny McBride and Dean Norris. Ideal for a large family or multiple families. What makes this home unique:

- Privacy and comfort. Over 6,000 sf spread out over 4 floors (with elevator). 5 large bedrooms, each with its own full bath and private deck. Additional sleeping areas. COMFORTABLY sleeps 16. Large kitchen and gathering areas.

Main level: Open the front door and you are looking out onto Banks Channel. Vaulted ceiling and large windows make it bright and airy. Relax in the comfortable living area while you watch movies on the large screen TV. Prepare meals in the spacious well-appointed kitchen, and serve them at the kitchen bar, the casual kitchen table, or the slightly less casual dining room table. Wine enthusiasts will appreciate the large wine fridge and bar area. Step out onto the deck and watch the sunset over the inland waterways. A great home for entertaining! A bedroom with full bath and private deck is also on this level.

Second level: Take your pick of three large bedrooms, including a “second master” that overlooks the sound. Each bedroom has a full bath and deck. There is also a cozy sitting area with pull-out couch, and a laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer.

Top level: A gorgeous master suite with panoramic views of Banks Channel and the Atlantic Ocean. The bedroom features a large bathroom with walk-in shower, a large walk-in closet, and, of course, a private deck with expansive water views. The bedroom opens up into a large living area with kitchenette and 3 built-in couches/day beds. An ideal space for families with children that would like to stay on the same floor. A locked door leads to a spiral staircase and large roof deck. Enjoy amazing views of the entire island!

Ground level: A game room with a large screen TV, sitting area, ping pong table, and half-bath. A sectional sofa and blow-up mattress provide extra sleeping. This room opens onto a large deck and the pier.

About Dean Scarafoni

I was resident of nearby Wilmington for 15 years, and although I now live outside the area, I return to the best beach in the Carolinas every chance that I get.

Dean Scarafoni purchased this house in 2013

Why Dean Scarafoni chose North Carolina

My children grew up as Wrightsville Beach locals. This spectacular home allows my family and friends to reconnect in style with plenty of room for everyone. Typically, when large families or multiple families rent a beach house, space can be tight. That isn't the case here. The bedrooms are all large and feature their own full baths and outdoor decks. The common areas and outdoor spaces are also very large, and everything is spread out over 4 levels. Lots of space finished with tasteful 'Carolina Cottage' design.

What makes this house unique

Water views from virtually every room. Waterfront on Banks Channel. Boat dock with deep water boat slips. Short walk to beach. Proximity to all Wrightsville Beach amenities and historic Downtown Wilmington.

Awesome house! Great location! Great management!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Wrightsville Beach and 212 Water St made it a blast! We came down to do the Ironman triathlon and were looking for a quiet, clean, convenient place. This place hit the mark at every level. The other bonus was it was literally steps from the race swim start allowing us to relax in the living room rather than freeze on the beach. Great large kitchen, large bedrooms. Million dollar views, open concept. The management was terrific, responsive, and friendly. No issues getting in the house, linens, towels, everything laid out very nicely. House was immaculate. We'll definitely be back.

Incredible Location, Beautiful Home, Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property on VRBO for a reunion and were absolutely blown away with our decision. Located on the South End of Wrightsville Beach, this provided the perfect getaway. Proximity to bars and restaurants made this location ideal, as did the dock access to the inter-coastal. The walk to the beach is less than 5 minutes. The house was in great condition, with multiple decks including one of the highest rooftop decks in Wrightsville Beach. Highly recommend this rental to anyone considering a vacation to Wrightsville that are seeking a peaceful retreat.

Awesome house!!

  • 5 of 5

House was amazing! Our group never left the house in the three days we were there. Spent all of our time on the back deck watching the boats go by and fishing.

This house is fantastic! Very comfortable with plenty of room on a quiet street. Wonderful views from sunrise to sunset! Having a bathroom with every bedroom was very nice. Every bedroom has access to a deck. Great house for family gatherings and vacations. I would come back in a heart beat!

Best beach visit in years!

  • 5 of 5

This home holds a special meaning to our family. Several years ago we stayed there with our family and my daughter's bridal party ladies. She left from this home to marry her husband and returned this year to celebrate her babies first birthday. The house comfortably housed our family with room for privacy and great gathering area.

The house was in great condition and equipped with all we could need. The property manager was there if we had any questions. With the decks, views and sunset-there was no need for anything else! We will return.

A beautiful place to make memories

  • 4 of 5

Several of us stayed in this beautiful home for my Daughter's wedding. It was spacious enough for all of us to feel comfortable. Transom windows letting in natural sunlight and sliders to well maintained decking everywhere. Comfortable. Interesting, unique decor. The owner was great to deal with, responded to requests and inquiries quickly. It was a whirlwind weekend and unfortunately I didn't have time to enjoy the beach, others did. It is walking distance and they thought it was lovely. The kitchen - although no time to prepare a meal in it (Thanks to MIddle of the Island Caterers who delivered delicious food the evening we arrived as weary travelers started trickling in) is huge with plenty of cabinet space for food for a week Got up early enough the morning after the wedding to enjoy a spectacular sunrise and then scurried off to "Beach Bagels" for a bakers dozen delicious warm bagels with assorted cream cheeses and spreads.

The newlyweds, who make their home in Wilmington and have friends with boats arrived later offering cruises. The private dock is certainly an added bonus and the lower deck comfortable and with easy access to crystal clear water and soft sand for sinking your feet into. Never really even missed the crowded beach! I would certainly recommend this property and actually plan to try to get back again soon when I do more relaxing and less entertaining.
