All that glitters is gold when you are renting the “Stairway to Heaven”! Unbelievable vistas flood this impressive three-bedroom two-bathroom condo, creating a magnetic ambiance.

Arguably the best view on Wrightsville Beach, this unique location offers tons of luxury and unexpected convenience. Come experience this high-end condo that is equally as legendary as its name!

Positioned on the top floor overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, “Stairway to Heaven” provides a bird’s eye view of the Wrightsville Beach draw bridge, the iconic Palm Tree Island, and miles of water vistas. As you enter this impressive home you will be blown away by the elegant vistas of the sunlight dazzling on the crystal-clear waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. The open concept great room creates a fantastic gathering space and ensures a beautiful vantage point no matter where you are within the home. A plush white leather couch overlooks a sizable flat screen TV and the gas fireplace that is sure to set your mind at ease and relax all your worries away. The glamorous dining table features a unique coastal touch and is positioned so that every guest can savor the striking scenery beyond. Appreciate an after-dinner drink on the covered deck as the sun slowly sets. Furnished with comfortable outdoor couches you will appreciate spending time on the deck watching boaters and luxury yachts pass by. You may start to wonder if all of your thoughts are misgiven as you relax in the soft breezes and salt air.

The handsome kitchen features Thermador appliances, a commercial gas range, huge storage pantry, and all the amenities you would expect from a luxury home. Featuring a sit in bar and with waterfall countertops designed from Italian granite, this kitchen will make cooking and hosting a treat!

The first guest room is furnished with an extravagant king-sized bed. A huge double door closet provides ample storage space for your guests and ensures their comfort. The second guest room is across the hall and is furnished with a lavishly decorated queen-sized bed.

Past the kitchen, down the sunlit hallway, is the cavernous primary suite. Wake up each morning with broad vistas of the Intracoastal Waterway. A cushy seating area with two textured swivel chairs and a side table give the space two meanings: a excellent space to relax and appreciate the water vistas in private or a viewing area for the enormous flat screen TV. The stately king-sized bed invites you to a restful slumber and welcomes you to a new day’s dawn. There is also a private ensuite bathroom with dual vanity and a large walk-in shower. This room is the ultimate getaway!

Solar powered window coverings in the common area and primary bedroom allow you to control privacy with just the touch of a button!

Our top Vacation rental tips and tricks:

Sticking to a spending budget:

  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families book their Summer vacation rentals during Christmas and Thanksgiving get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summer is the most expensive season in the Wilmington, NC area. Booking a rental in Spring or Fall is our best tip for saving money on your vacation home. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of suitable properties.
  • Hosts and Property managers sometimes offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if special offers are available for your group.
  • Property managers often offer guests an option to buy vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed trip time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, visitors guide magazines contain money saving offers on local accommodations, restaurants and tours.

Use filters to narrow your rental search:

  • Choose a designated group leader, choose your vacation dates, and select a budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Top floor condo with ocean and canal views! has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed types is generally accessible online. If they are not listed, reach out to the host before you reserve the property. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches.
  • Are you traveling with furry, four-legged family members? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your agreement! Pet fees or applied to your agreement.
  • If there's a certain Wilmington, NC beach you crave, search for properties that are either close by, or those that cater to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are included before reserving a rental.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Put the owner's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Hosts are available to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Ensure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • To ensure that damages aren't linked to your visit, inspect the property for any problem areas during arrival. message the property manager right away to report your findings. If there is a dispute, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll magnify your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors can be an incredible resource to find the best local restaurants, beaches, and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can often help. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Re-check the vacation property to make sure that you've packed all personal items at check-out. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the rental a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager isn't available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a great vacation? Most rental home management companies make it easy for clients to provide feedback. If your property and/or property management company was great, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was out of order and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor.

Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
