About this Property

  • Sleeps 13
  • 5 Bedrooms
  • 4 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home

Spend your next beach vacation rocking on the cavernous wraparound porch at “Cardwell”. This seemingly ocean front home sports great ocean vistas and was designed by an architect associate of Frank Lloyd Wright. Although this home is technically one home back from the beach front, the unique staggered tons on the north end of the island ensure picture ideal vistas and a feeling of privacy. The private road with no public parking will make you feel as though you have the beach to yourself. Don’t miss your chance to vacation in this one-of-a-kind bungalow!

The main living level of “Cardwell” has a huge living-dining area with cathedral ceilings. A series of sliding glass doors wrap the home to allow natural light to flood the living space and showcase the beautiful vistas beyond. The kitchen and bathrooms have been lightly refreshed to make a comfortable space to prepare home cooked meals for the family. A enormous dining table provides ample seating and opens to the main living space that is furnished with plenty of seating options. Just off the kitchen is a modest multi-purpose room that includes a bunk bed (twin over twin), half bathroom, and laundry facilities.

Down the hall on the main living level is a full bathroom that serves the close by guest room that is furnished with two beds, a twin, and a queen. This guest room has a sizable sliding glass door that leads to the ocean side deck and offers a nice view of the ocean. The primary suite is located at the end of the hall and features a lush kind sized bed, walk in closet, dual vanity, walk in shower, and gives direct access to the wraparound porch. Wake up each morning to the waves crashing and palms blowing in the soft breeze.

A spiral staircase located in the living room gives this home unique character and leads to the top floor where there are three additional bedrooms. At the top of the stairs, you will find a full bathroom complete with a walk-in shower. This bathroom serves the upstairs bedrooms. To your left is a guest room with a queen-size bed and constructed-in seating. This bedroom overlooks the main living area below and features some very eye-catching angles designed by the architect. To the right of the stairs there is a second guest bedroom with a queen bed that is framed by a series of windows that make the room feel bright and airy. This guest room also overlooks the living area below and directly leads to the third bedroom which provides a full bed. Given that the full bedroom directly connects to the queen guest room this sleeping arrangement is ideal for families with modest kids.

If you are looking for a vacation home with ample outdoor space, great vistas, worry complimentary parking, a stellar location, tons of appeal, and all the amenities of home then look no further. This home has a lot to offer and is sure to provide a space for a memorable family vacation!

Tips for getting the best vacation rental experience:

When to visit Wrightsville Beach & When to reserve a rental home:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months along the coast of NC. To get the most suitable rental within your budget, we recommend booking in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons. You'll benefit from lower rates, greater selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at the beach and popular Wilmington, NC attractions. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer months.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often open a year in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families book their Summer rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies often offer renters an option to buy vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
  • Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Wilmington, NC area visitor guides which will include coupons, either offered independently by local businesses, or through a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

How to choose the best vacation rental in Wrightsville Beach:

  • Choose a designated group leader, select your dates, and choose a budget.
  • Note the number beds and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. Spacious home w ocean views from wraparound porch has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our vacation rental search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts & types is often available online. Otherwise, call the property owner before you reserve the vacation home. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds. You'll need to determine what bed configuration is suitable for your vacation.
  • If there's a specific Wilmington, NC beach you long to visit, browse homes that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your agreement! Extra fees or charges applied to your contract.

Advice for a great stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before leaving home. Take a printed copy, and add a note with the instructions to your smartphone.
  • To make certain no damages are linked to your stay, make note of any problem areas upon your arrival. Get in touch with the host right away to record any issues. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of issues and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, intercom or appliance. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents many issues.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll increase your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a terrific resource to find the best local spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to enjoy a steak with a view, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Lock your vacation home while you're out and about. Protect the owner's property and your things!
  • Re-check the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all personal items at departure. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the property one final time and look for any damage. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever possible. If the manager isn't available, take pictures of the property to record its condition.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on good reviews to inspire future reservations. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your experience find their best rental home. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to remedy it.
