Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This is a recently renovated rustic 1947 cottage with an outstanding view of and access to the Intracoastal Waterway. It is perfect for meditation or quiet time by the water's edge, or for fishing, art, reading, writing, kayaking or paddleboarding. It is close to Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Topsail Island and Hampstead where there is shopping, restaurants, outdoor and cultural activities and beautiful beaches. It's old, but it is full of charm!

The space
This is a cozy cottage with a BIG view of the Intracoastal Waterway. Wake up to dolphins swimming by or stay up for the Moonrise over the water. This home offers peace and tranquility, but is just a short drive to all that Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach has to offer -- restaurants, shopping, nightlife and beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. The cottage has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and there is a modern bathroom with shower. It has a small kitchen and nice living spaces. We offer free wi-fi and cable TV to our guests. There are books to read, puzzles to put together and cards to play. Be sure to bring a fishing rod, kayak or canoe!

Where you’ll be

Wilmington, North Carolina, United States

This is a quiet, residential neighborhood. Please be respectful of the neighbors and keep noise levels to a minimum. Scotts Hill Marina and restaurant is within easy walking distance. I love the Steamed Shrimp from the Raw Bar. Other restaurants that are in the area and are very good include: Kornerstone Bistro (the salmon and spinach risotto is excellent as is the Shrimp Fra diablo); Cape Fear Seafood; and K-38 Baja Grill (Mexican - Tuesday is 1/2 price fajita night). PTs Grille is legendary for its hamburgers and fries and the Ogden Tap Room is a great watering hole serving up pub food and the latest televised sporting event. If it's beer you like, try Fermental where you can sit outside and enjoy the laid back atmosphere, live music and food truck fare. Liberty Tavern also offers a wonderful outdoor drinking environment and food truck fare. Finally, there is a large Walmart nearby for any forgotten necessities, a Medac location for any emergencies, and a Harris Teeter and/or Food Lion Grocery Store within easy reach. Please refer to our Guidebook that is stored in the red cabinet.

I am an energetic and active mother of two young men, a wife and a real estate agent. I love being outdoors -- running, walking, boating, beach combing or playing tennis -- if it's outside, I will enjoy it! I believe you have to keep moving through life. As a real estate agent, I love helping people find their dream home on the Cape Fear Coast or listing properties for sale. In my spare time, I love to travel - this year I visited New York, Chicago and Italy. One of my greatest daily pleasures is a good cup of coffee and I truly believe that "one man can do what another can do."
