Or, if you need a little additional warmth, take a soak in the 6 person hot tub beneath the flickering lantern lights of the screened in porch. Savor a family BBQ on the roomy and kid-friendly back deck! You can even bring Fido! We can leave the bicycles out for your use upon request. (Be sure to let me know if you wish to use them! Otherwise they may be locked up the private garage.) And for those traveling by RV, 50AMP and water hookups are available in the driveway. (A modest electric fee will apply)

The prepare in your group will appreciate the completely outfitted Tuscan-Industrial styled kitchen! With an inviting wine bar and Pecan Live-Edge conversation table that seats four, this warm space opens through double french doors to the back deck. Ideal for entertaining and fully supplied with dishes, cookware, spices and all the basics you have at home, you will savor cooking in this handsome, centrally located kitchen.

The Dining Room and Family Room are kid-proofed and pet friendly! With a formal look and a laid back feel, the Dining Room seats10 plus a highchair. Child-proof corner cabinets hold plenty of additional dinner ware and flatware to accommodate huge groups. This impressive space is connected directly with the Family Room, which is equipped with sanitized kid toys, books for all ages, a big screen TV and even a hidden changing station! The new 60 inch intelligent T.V. is ideal for a family movie nighttime. Pop some corn & grab a comfortable throw for a family movie nighttime. The Family Room is a great space for your entire group.

Just opposite the Family Room on the other side of the Kitchen and Foyer is the Games Parlor. This warm and inviting room, decorated with gorgeous original art work, antique mirrors and furnishings, is well appointed with many board and card games, a profession poker set, mahjong & a phenomenal drink style arcade video console with EVERY classic game you can name! Play your twentieth century heart out on classics like Donkey Kong, Frogger Ms. Pacman, Galaga and hundreds more! (Please note that the Parlor is NOT kid-proofed.) The game benches are packed with card games, board games and puzzles for good old fashioned family fun!

A pretty half Bath with a highboy toilet and a convenient Laundry Room outfitted with pool towels and robes for the hot tub finish out the downstairs space. The doggy door is located in the Laundry Room as well, and that's where you'll find pet dishes (and a few treats for Fido!).

As we talk about Fido, here we should note: Our kitties, Tippy and Molly, live full time in a separate and private apartment on the property, just off the back of the attached garage. They have their own private entrance and side yard, so you may not see them at all... But they may just sneak in for a peek around if you leave the doggy door open. It will be closed when you arrive to discourage them; but if they do slip in, just set them out again and they will get the hint. A caretaker stops by and feeds them daily; but, your privacy will not be disturbed by her. She comes and goes via the private side gate to the private yard and apartment. And both Molly and Tippy are accustomed to dogs and guests, and are friendly to both!

Upstairs a enormous masculine Master Suite with king size bed and new intelligent TV await. The antique wardrobe and hutch provide plenty of guest space, and, basic toiletries are supplied in the on-suite Bathroom. All linens including additional blankets and pillows are included for your stay!

The double sink Hall Bath is likewise supplied with toiletries, first aid kit and even kids's bath toys! Still training a little one? No problem! A training toilet is found in the bathroom closet.

The nursery is kid-proofed and thoughtfully sanitized for each group's stay. In addition to the cozy crib, a full size bottom bunk and an upper single bunk means this room will sleep up to four kids (or three adults)! The Nursery is loaded with toys for all ages and everything you may need for traveling babies and toddlers. Infant supplies like a pack-n-play crib for the beach, stroller, bouncer, carrier and swing can be found in the closet- cleaned, sanitized and ready for your use. Express yourself on the blackboard wall or bang out a new song in the music corner... This room is a blast for little ones!

The Bride's Bedroom is a cavernous feminine bedroom getaway that overlooks the back yard and pool area. With a queen bed, comfy reading chair and elegant handmade area rug, this room is a favorite space for our most honored guests. Many brides have donned their gowns here while peeking out the blackout curtains at their guests gathering below in the backyard.

A fourth bedroom, called simply the Guest's Room, offers a cozy reading chair, Roku TV and double bed.

Please note: We keep a fold out bed with an inflatable bed (full size) that may be used for overflow guests in the game room or family room when they need it. (I warn, the downstairs areas do not offer a great deal of privacy, but it is a comfortable bed and simple to use.) Please request this bed be left out along with the linens and linens if you think you may need it.

We raised four striking men in this home and over the decades we've welcomed hundreds of friends there to celebrate life and family. A place of tranquility where hospitality is a cherished expression of adore and kindness. It is our sincerest want that you feel well cared for the moment you enter and that you leave feeling rested and refreshed in body and spirit. Here you are really welcome!

A few items that must be said:
Note: The pool is not heated year round, but may be heated to a comfortable 83 degrees upon request only. An additional "Heating Fee" of $50 per day will be required. A solar blanket cover has been installed and most months is sufficient to maintain a pleasant temperature, but for the cooler months the propane heat pump extends swim season rather a lot! Please note: The blanket MUST be used at all times when the pool is not in use. It may be conveniently removed by use of a simple crank that rolls the blanket up and away for swimming and fun time. Thank you for understanding and cooperation.


PLEASE NOTE: In regards to Fido... Our neighborhood has numerous kids and pets; therefore, ONLY safe breeds are allowed. If you are unsure if this definition will include your pet, please ask. We are real dog lovers and have appreciated nearly every breed in our family through the years; but, not all dogs and not all dog owners are alike. Therefore; all pets MUST BE accurately described as cat and kid friendly. Ours is a family neighborhood where you'll see many people appreciating a bicycle ride or walk with their pets. So pets MUST be well behaved and friendly under ALL circumstances. This we require without exception. And finally ONLY two pets per visit are allowed please. (This is outlined in the attached Short Term Rental Agreement, which we require all guests review prior to booking.) Guests with pets that mark and/or soil carpets or furnishings WILL be charged any and all additional cleaning costs from their deposit; and, guests with pets that do not meet the guidelines specified herein will be asked to leave without refund.

Please note as well: Every person who lives on our cul-de-sac is reasonable, hospitable and kind. This being said we too try to be good neighbors and insist that our guests follow neighborhood rules and policies during their stay. The posted max. neighborhood speed limit is 25 miles per hour due to the high volume of kids and pets. PLEASE respect this policy! Neighborhood peaceful hours are 10PM through 8AM and are STRICTLY ENFORCED. Our neighbors will definitely call me if they feel guests are not complying with these rules and policies, as I have asked them to do so. Please rest assured, I understand that vacation time can become loud and rambunctious, so I will always give my guests a heads up call first... But repeat non-compliance with peaceful hours will result in eviction and surrender of all deposits. So please be respectful. (Neighborhood rules are outlined in the attached Short Term Rental Agreement, which we require all guests review prior to booking.)

Before booking PLEASE take time to download and review the Short Term Rental Agreement, where more detailed information can be found.

Thanks for looking and we hope to host you soon!

Rental property booking tips:

How to get the best rental value:

  • Summertime is high season in Wilmington. To get the largest rental within budget, we recommend booking in Fall or Spring months. You'll enjoy lower rental rates, better selection, beautiful weather and the absence of giant crowds at your favorite Wilmington, NC restaurants and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer vacations during holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner whether your family qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property management companies often offer guests an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for specifics.
  • Look for your local visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local articles, visitors guide magazines contain offers and deals for nearby tours, shops, and attractions.

Narrow your Search:

  • Select a group leader, select your vacation week, and select a max budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration you need. Family Retreat w\/ Heated Pool, Hot Tub & RV Hookup -15min to Wrightsville Beach! has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts is almost always accessible on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, reach out to the host before you reserve the rental. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which usually includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • Visiting for a specific attraction or event? Use a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all necessary amenities are included before booking.
  • If your group is bringing pets, you will need a pet-friendly property. Make sure to ask for information on breed, weight, and type requirements. Be aware that some property owners require additional pet deposits and fees.

Additional considerations:

  • Add the host's phone number to your smartphone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • To make sure that damages are not attributed to your visit, inspect the property for any problem areas upon check in. Call the rental manager right away to relay any damages. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having a record of concerns and contact attempts will be useful.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, elevator or thermostat. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents quite a few problems.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful vacationers bothering your peaceful neighborhood. Use the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and scenic spots you would have never otherwise known!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can often help. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental locked up while you are away, just like you would at home.
  • Double-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all belongings on check-out day. Check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the rental a final time and scan for damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the host whenever you can. If the host is not available, take photographs of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a excellent stay? Most vacation rental websites make it easy for clients to provide comments. If your rental property and/or host was wonderful, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.

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. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. 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.
