About Rick

I was originally a midwesterner from Missouri who married a 5th generation Greensboro NC girl who grew up vacationing at Wrightsville Beach. We have four beautiful children who grew up spending their summers at Wrightsville Beach. We have owned homes at Wrightsville Beach since 2000 and I can not tell you how wonderful Wrightsville Beach is!! We welcome you to our home! Rick

Rick purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Rick chose Wrightsville Beach

Salt Box Cottage was purchased and updated in 2015. It is our personal second home we love to share with our guest so you can have the same special memories. It is on a quiet no parking street with fabulous access to everything while feeling like you are on a remote island.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful freshly remodeled beach cottage house that will feel like your own home. New furniture, tv's, bedding and everything else in and outside of the house. 7+ parking spaces and beautiful 360 degree water views from the widows walk on top of the house. Our home is your home! Come enjoy it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rick -

We loved your house and the whole family had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend in your home. We loved the widows peak and you are right, the sunsets are incredible. I am sorry for you about the house going up across the street - surely you will miss that "window" of view, but your front porch is still a wonderfully relaxing place for coffee and lunches. We could not have had nicer weather - we sat out and walked the loop every day! We got the ice-maker working within a day and other than needing a hair dryer (which we purchased from CVS) the house was perfect!! We loved your touches and appreciate how you stocked you home for guests to fully enjoy. It is a gem! If we can muster our parents for another Thanksgiving away from Chapel Hill - we will surely return.

Thank you again for being so accommodating,

Great place to stay with friends and family! The rooftop area and the parking area under the house are great spots to gather and enjoy one another's company.

Fun and practical

  • 5 of 5

This is what you are looking for. Everything works; all the equipment you expect is there; and there are surprises (bikes, kitchen extras, beach gear, tv's galore). We loved having a quality gas grill available for preparing steaks/seafood at the cottage. The shady front porch almost doubles the living/social area when the weather cooperates. HVAC worked smoothly for our March stay through cold and warm days alike. Beach is an easy walk. Rooftop widow's walk is a nice feature but it was too windy to use much in March. Down below, you're peeking through the houses across the street for the (nice) sunsets from the front porch.

Wedded Bliss

VRBO Renter,

This home has been updated and has a great beach feel, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds were awesome, the front porch was awesome and the roof top widows walk was very cool, kids enjoyed the Ping-Pong area, hammock, and grill area. This house is located on a quite dead end street. It was prefect for our family. One nice added touch, you do not have to pack all of the beach "STUFF". They have it ready for you to go right there at the house. You have access to bikes, chairs, umbrellas, boggy boards, beach cart, etc for the beach.

Okay it sounds like they paid me to write this. Not true. You will not be disappointed. My family said over and over how did you find this place. The homeowner followed up several times to make sure we had everything we needed for a great stay.

Great place, book it today, we will be back. The Rader Party 2016!!

Owner's Response: Wow! Jay those are the only words I have to say for such a wonderful review for your Christmas stay! Wrightsville is a wonderful place for the holidays being all lit up with their decorations and festive feel. So glad our home worked out exactly like we planned it for you and your family and especially hope to have you back in the summer months. Or again for Christmas next year! Thank you to all of the Radar family for such a nice review and wonderful family to share our home with. All my best! Rick
