Wrightsville Beach Island Bungalow, 5-8 min walk beach/restaurants
750 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Kristal
5 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 1 Bathroom


If you want a quiet, laid back, private retreat in the middle of the thriving Wrightsville Beach scene, check out this little bungalow! Truly the best of both worlds, this 2 bedroom, 1 ½ bath cottage is located on a quiet neighborhood one-way street with mostly foot traffic BUT also in the middle of everything at Wrightsville Beach. After a grocery run, you can park your car the remainder of your stay because “all things fun” can be reached on foot. That’s right….the beach, the channel, great restaurants, awesome coffee houses, surf shops, ice cream, supplies, gifts all within 5-9 min walk. It is an outdoor enthusiasts “candy store!” Bikes will get you there even faster. If you must drive, we have a WB resident parking pass for your use which allows you to park right at the beach. What a deal!

Pets? 25.00/night pet fee at discretion of owner. No aggressive breads - pit bull, chow, etc...No dogs that bark a lot. We like our neighbors :-)

The Bungalow: Discover the quaint charm of this 2 bedroom, 1 ½ bath cottage with relaxing screen porch and outdoor patio. Enjoy the breezes that blow through as you read a book, have a cocktail with a friend, or just ponder life. If you happen to visit during a month with an “R”, you must have a oyster roast on the vintage brick patio under trees. There is cozy living/kitchen/eating area where you can prepare fresh Mahi or Grouper from Motts Seafood, enjoy a glass of wine, or snuggle up to watch a movie. We love the expansive window at the eating area that makes us feel as we are still outdoors. Well stocked kitchen with blender, toaster, kettle, microwave, and everything needed to cook. The beds are comfortable. Wifi allows for streaming. Linens and bath towels are included but please bring your beach towels. The beds are super comfortable: Queen, 2 twins, and a cot for a little person.

We provide two bicycles. You can rent PUD, kayak, surfboard, and additional bikes just a few minutes walk. 250 feet from our front door there is a public access for easy entry into banks channel. You will certainly be able to unwind in this comfortable home.

For the Outdoor Enthusiast:
Water sports Reign Supreme: As a naturally gifted water sports hub, WB motivates travelers to maintain an active lifestyle once here. Named top 10 surfing towns in the world by National Geographic and the birthplace of surfing in NC, WB attracts both amateurs and experts who catch endless waves here. The many waterways from surf to sound convey a sense of movement everywhere you look. See crystal blue waters from a paddle board or kayak advantage. You can rent a boat, take a cruise, go fishing or a scuba trip. Sign up for sailing lessons or go to surf camp. Just grab any kind of board or just dive in and get in on the action!
Surf and Paddleboard (SUP) - As one of the premier watersports destinations in the country, it’s a natural place to hold top ranked surfing competitions and SUP events. There are pro-am surf-fests and Wahine Classic surf competition attracting all levels of female surfers. The Carolina Cup, held every spring, was crowned as one of the world’s five major SUP races. So if it is good enough for the pros, it is good enough for us all. You can even enjoy SUP Yoga in the ICW. For your board needs, there are several great surf shops, Aussie Island and Sweetwater in particular, are 5 min walk.

For the Outdoor Land-lover
The Loop, a 2.5 mile scenic trail is steps outside of your door. It is a well-loved treasure that offers a walking or jogging experience you won’t find anywhere else. Test your running skills or just stroll as you enjoy views of Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), Banks Channel, a live oak lined and shaded path, and beautiful salt marshes as you make your way around this awesome path. While always active but never crowded, it is sure to inspire you to move!
WB Park offers four tennis courts, basketball, volleyball, kids play equipment, obstacle course equipment, and fields to enjoy whatever you prefer. From May-Oct, every Monday the park hosts a FARMERS MARKET Mondays 8 am - 1 pm.

Fishing: From USA today…
“With two fishing piers and four miles of white sand beaches, the town of Wrightsville Beach is a prime destination for fishing. Wrightsville Beach overlooks the Atlantic Ocean along North Carolina's Outer Banks, and anglers can catch a variety of native and migratory saltwater game fish including summer flounder, speckled sea trout and Spanish mackerel. Angling opportunities are available year round.

Downtown Wilmington: Often referred to as “little Charleston” has been a great destination for great restaurants, nightlife, NC Battleship, Riverwalk, Cruises, Historical tours, art shops, Cotton Exchange, Gem studios, Horse and Carriage rides, and a free trolley. In the last couple of years, this area has become hot with growth adding Convention Center, Performing Arts Center, Marina, Riverwalk extension, public concerts, Saturday morning farmers market. Soon there will be a new public park at the new marina. A trip here during your stay is a must….Ask about favorite restaurants.
