Feel perfectly at home In this beautifully decorated beachy downstairs unit Duplex Cottage on one of Wrightsville's favorite streets, Sandpiper, just four streets north of Johnny Mercer's Pier. Our family and pet-friendly 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home sleeps 6, or 8 with permission. It is only 5 houses from the ocean with no street to cross, and has all you need for a fantastic beach stay.
The master king sleigh bed has a comfy mattress topper and duvet. The master bath has a jetted tub and large walk in shower. Other two bedrooms have twin and queen beds. For your convenience I also have two inflatable mattresses, a soft toddler bed, a portable bassinet, and a Pack-n-Play. All bedrooms have roomy closets.
The inviting open concept living, dining and kitchen has a gas fireplace for stays in colder months. A spacious hot and cold outdoor shower will keep you smiling in warmer months.
Lounge, laptop, sun, sip or swing on one of the three porches. Or pack the beach cart with provided beach chairs, rafts, toys, buckets, and boogie boards... just 200 steps away, no street to cross.
Fun and popular restaurants, bars, shops, and our locally-owned Robert's Grocery are within walking distance as is Johnny Mercer's Pier, the tree-lined Loop (for walkers and joggers), the adorable Greensboro Playground, and gorgeous Banks Channel where each evening you can see the sun set. A short drive away are even more fun distractions. with movies, endless shopping, and a plethora of restaurants. And, of course, the beautiful and historic city of Wilmington is just the next town over!
When you book you will get an invitation to get the HomeAway app with tons of information about the house, the area, and my recommendations for what to do and where to go. I strive to help make your stay everything you wish it to be, so please let me know how I can help at any time!
My x-husband and I bought this house in 2002 after years of wonderful trips to Wrightsville Beach. Our daughter was born in 1998 and we began looking for a place to call our own. Four years later, on the way to look at this beautifully built house we saw a gorgeous rainbow. Well... we bought it and never looked back! Though no longer together, we share the home, as well as rent it for needed income, and so that others can enjoy it when we're not there. We both live in Durham and get there as much as we can. We hope you enjoy the home as much as we do!
Laura Thomasson purchased this house in 2002
This is our second home and we hope you feel at home too! I put my heart and soul into it and strive to provide everything you need. It is cozy and warmly appointed with local and other art as well as things I've collected from NC, Mexico and Europe. No vinyl here!
Our home is only 200 steps from the sand with no street to cross which makes it safer to get kids to and from the beach. It has three porches, two in front and one in back so, depending on time of day, you can find either sun or shade. There is a fun porch swing, table and chairs for lap top working, or chairs and settee for lounging and sunning.
Four blocks away or a short beach stroll is Johnny Mercer's Pier, a great place for kids to run to for a snack or soda, or just to hang out or fish on the pier.
We supply most everything you'll need so no need to lug things from afar like sheets and beach pails. We provide bath towels and linens and have tons of toys, chairs, etc. If you'd like to use the bikes or grill, we ask you that you let us know you'll be using them.
We hope you have a wonder-ful time!

We came in for the weekend celebrating our sons UNCW graduation. Upon arrival we were greeted with a surprise in the refrigerator. These extra touches along with all the necessities needed in a home is what made our stay very relaxed and enjoyable. Thank you Laura
Property was well stocked...especially appreciated the cook are...coffee maker...Bose system...made it feel like home. Great location...
We have rented a number of properties on Wrightsville Beach. While all have been nice, this was by far the cleanest, best maintained home we've stayed in. The home was exactly as described in the listing, with good amenities, right down to the kitchen appliances and cookware. The property was a very short walk to the beach, and on the Loop if you're in the mood for a run. Clean, comfortable and convenient. We will certainly consider this property on our next trip to Wrightsville Beach.
This is the second time I have stayed at this location and it won't be the last. Just a few steps away from the sand and a short drive to restaurants, it's the perfect beach location. It's always been clean and stocked well beyond what we have needed. I will be staying here again!
Last minute trip to see my daughter couldn't have been better. Literally like staying at home but transported to the beach. Beautiful property just steps away from beach access to the most beautiful sunrise in the south. Cannot wait to book again. Thanks to Laura for the most peaceful and relaxing days!
Couldn't be better!
I have stayed at many vacation homes and never stayed at one so comfy and well-equipped. And just five houses from the beach! Laura has everything- bikes, beach chairs, toys, bookshelves full of books, and a kitchen with everything you need. There are 3 lovely porches, one with a porch swing and lots of places to work or lounge, sun or shade. The king bed with down comforter and luxurious pillows was a dream as was the jetted tub. The other bedrooms are also comfy with nice bedding. The huge hot and cold outdoor shower is perfect after the beach or anytime. Laura is easy to communicate with and happy to help in any way. I did see the last review which worried me a bit but I saw no ants or smells. I will continue to come back year after year!
Wrightsville beach offers a host of highly rated casual and upscale restaurants both on the island and right across the bridge. And it's shopping galore... with everything from gourmet pet stores to art and antiques and thrifty or upscale fashion, you will find something to enjoy and bring home with you. Try fishing, boating, kayaking, biking, surfing, parasailing, a water and fun park, miniature golf and more. If wildlife is more your style take a boat or ferry to Masonboro island to picnic, or explore the local aquarium or botanical gardens. The opportunities for adventure in and around Wrightsville Beach are nearly endless. A short drive takes you to historic Wilmington for even more eating, shopping and sight-seeing opportunities. Or head to Fort Fischer and take the ferry to Bald Head Island or the quaint and historic town of Southport.
