About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath, Sleeps 6

You can’t beat the views from this 7th floor condo! Just steps away from the beach and pool, you'll enjoy this well decorated 2 bedroom condo with all its amenities. This unit is the perfect size for a family of five, or a getaway with friends. It sleeps 6 comfortably with a new pull out sofa.

Open up the balcony and enjoy the sunrise as you drink your morning coffee. Or wind down with a cocktail and enjoy the stars and moonscape. Sliding glass doors let you open up the balcony to both the living room and pool area.

Two new comfy couches and a 40-inch flat-screen LCD TV in the living room will keep you entertained when you don’t want to be outside. WiFi is available throughout the unit for Internet access.

A fully outfitted kitchen is open to the bright, airy living space, which has a dining table for six. If you prefer to dine al fresco, gas grills and a bar and dining tables are available downstairs at the cabana. Or eat out at one of many wonderful restaurants nearby.

The spacious master bedroom has a king bed and another TV. A second bedroom has three twin beds. Two full baths give everyone quick access to showers after playing on the beach or in the pool. Bed linens and bath towels are provided. Free laundry facility on the seventh floor.

A white, sandy beach and shallow waters warmed by the Gulf Stream are perfect for swimming, surfing, or boogie boarding. Build a sand castle or walk down the beach to Johnnie Mercer’s Pier. The pool area offers comfortable lounge chairs, two shaded cabanas with chairs and tables, an ice machine, barbeque grills, an outdoor shower and restrooms.

The small town of Wrightsville Beach combines older, Carolina-style cottages with newer ones. There is very little neon, 'honky-tonk' business. Biking, kayaking, and boating are favorite pastimes in addition to the usual beach and sand fun. If you have the occasional rainy day, you will be glad! The city of Wilmington lays right across the drawbridge and is loaded with fascinating things to do. The Cape Fear River runs through downtown and the long boardwalk and historic Cotton Exchange are filled with unique boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. For culture hounds there is the Cameron Art Museum, one of the best in the Southeast. Theater, music venues, art galleries, and historic houses abound. In addition, there is a large, newish shopping center near Wrightsville, watersides, putt-putt golf, movies, and even the Cape Fear Serpentarium.

If you have a question about what to see or do, the Islander’s friendly, helpful staff are on site during the day and will be happy to guide you.

Great view, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

We've stayed at the Islander twice now and LOVE the view of these units. It's a great setup and with the pool, beach access and balcony. However, the unit could really use some updating in kitchen and bathroom. Communication was less than ideal from the owner/manager too. We got an email the day we were checking in regarding the carpet and drywall being pulled up and exposed... she just forwarded the email from the site manager with not a lot of feedback or concern. The coffee maker was broken and after texting about it, the owner never responded back with apologies or a solution. For the price of this unit I would have really expected more. If the price was lower, I'd probably rate it higher but it's definitely overpriced for what you're getting.

Nice area. Great place to be on the beach.

  • 3 of 5

Plenty of space. Kitchen needs updating bad. We had 7 other families also staying in same condos and the others we went into were more updated. I feel like if they all run the same price, I would choose another condo. For the price, I expected more. We usually pay half of what we did for this condo. Pool was very nice, beds were comfy. Great area.

Excellent for a small family

  • 4 of 5

Although the building is 40+ years old, it is very well maintained. The grounds are excellent, and the people who work there are very cordial and helpful. Our condo has two nice bedrooms and two full baths, all of which are very comfortable. The kitchen appliances are nice, as is the furniture. The Wi-Fi is weak and slow. If you go on to the balcony, however, the reception is OK since the transmitter is pointed in your direction. The swimming pool is very well maintained, and we enjoyed using the gas grill and eating a couple of suppers poolside. The ocean is fabulous; plenty of room; life guards close by; and well kept.

Great time at the Islander

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time while staying at the Islander. The pictures are an accurate depiction of the condo. Overall, the Islander is really nice and a great place to stay. Wrightsville beach is a wonderful and safe location.

Ideal location. Older building but immaculate condo!

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely brilliant weekend away at Wrightsville Beach. The condo is on the 7th floor and has a balcony, that I personally could have stayed on for the entirety of our visit, overlooking the Ocean. The inside of the condo is impeccable and just what you need for a little vacation. The place, as advertised, comfortably sleeps 6 as long as you have two folks who will share a large King bed.

The condo is probably situated a mile and a half away from the main nucleus of restaurants and bars which is either a very simple taxi ride or pleasant stroll along the beach/parallel road.

I would return in a heartbeat. It works for a friends' retreat or family holiday. Downtown Wilmington is also just a short drive away.
