Guests consistently say "ideal location!"

***We freshly took back over from the property mgmt company so Vacation Rental By Owner removed our reviews. We have 30 reviews on the other major rental site with an avg of 4.75 stars. Please search for Island Bungalow Wrightsville Beach to read. Here are a few:

Karen: "The location is to die for... striking street lined with handsome homes and friendly people and right on the sound. We walked everywhere from this location. It was fun to see other people walking their dogs, walking to eateries, taking early morning jogs and greeting the sunrise on the beach. We picked up incredible acai and yogurt bowls from Adapt Kitchen and Juice bar and ate them on a public gazebo looking over the sound. This is the life!"
Stephanie: "As someone who has lived at WB, location is everything. This home is right where you want to be! Loved having the screened in porch. Kristal went above and beyond to accommodate my family and pups needs and was so responsive.."
Tina: "First of all, Krystal was an amazingly responsive and accommodating host. We had all of the info we needed, complete with locals-only suggestions and personal touches to help us savor the beach. The bicycles, fenced yard, darling home and spectacular screened porch made our stay so comfortable! The neighborhood is pretty and the neighbors are amazing. The description is so true, you can walk to everything...and we did! We can’t wait to go back again. Thank you, Krystal!!"

If you want a peaceful, laid-back, private getaway in the middle of the thriving Wrightsville Beach scene, check out this little bungalow! Truly the best of both worlds, this 2 bedroom, 1 and ½ bath bungalow is located on a peaceful 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 for the remainder of your stay because “all things fun” can be reached on foot. That’s right….the beach, the channel, great eateries, impressive coffee homes, surf stores, ice cream, supplies, and gifts are all within a 5-9 min walk. It is an outdoor enthusiast “candy store!” Bikes will get you there even faster. If you must drive, we have a WB resident parking pass for your use which accepts you to park right at the beach. What a deal!

Animals? $200 pet fee. Rules: 1. One dog only at the discretion of the owner. 2. No aggressive breeds - pit bull, chow, etc... 3. No dogs that bark a lot. We like our neighbors :-). 4. If they need to be on the furnishings, bring your own blankets to keep dirt/hair out of ours.

The Bungalow - Recently refreshed: Discover the cozy appeal of this 2 bedroom, 1 ½ bath bungalow with a calming screen porch and outdoor patio. Appreciate the breezes that blow through as you read a book, have a beverage with a friend, or just ponder life. If you happen to visit during a month with an “R”, you must have an oyster roast on the vintage brick patio under trees. There is a cozy living/kitchen/eating area where you can prepare fresh Mahi or Grouper from Motts Seafood, appreciate a glass of wine, or snuggle up to watch a movie. We appreciate the broad window bar that makes us feel as if we are still outdoors. Well-supplied kitchen with blender, toaster, kettle, microwave, and everything needed to prepare. The beds are cozy. Wifi accepts for streaming with Roku. The beds are super comfortable: Queen, 1 twin, and one futon. This home is not the "granite countertop experience, but it is a 1950's style laid-back throw back beach home. Just remodeled to make lighter, brighter, and more comfortable. The painless living and unbeatable location are why people return to the Island Bungalow.

We provide two bicycles. You can rent SUP, kayak, surfboard, and additional bicycles just a few mins. walk. 250 feet from our front door there is public access for simple entry into Bank's channel. You will certainly be able to relax 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 in the 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 countless 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 surfing 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 competitions 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 multiple great surf stores, Aussie Island and Sweetwater in particular, which are 5 min walk.

For the Outdoor Land-lover
We sit on The Loop, a 2.5-mile spectacular trail that is a well-adored treasure that offers a walking or running experience you won’t find anywhere else. Test your running skills or just walk as you enjoy vistas of Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), Banks Channel, a live oak-lined and shaded path, and handsome salt marshes as you make your way around this impressive path. While always active but never busy, 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 eateries, nightlife, NC Battleship, Riverwalk, Cruises, Historical tours, art stores, Cotton Exchange, Gem studios, Horse and Carriage rides, and a complimentary 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, and 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 eateries.

Tips for getting the perfect Wrightsville Beach vacation rental experience:

Getting the best rental home value:

  • The earlier you can book a rental home, the easier your search will be. The best rental homes are reserved very early. Booking your vacation home six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to plan and book your vacation home.
  • Summer is high season in the Wilmington, NC area. Book your rental home in Fall or Spring to get the benefit of beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with friends and family at the beach.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host whether your group qualifies for a special rate.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer guests an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for more information.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC area magazine when you check-in. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, travel guide magazines contain deals for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

Filter your search:

  • Start by having your family select date ranges and a maximum budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the configuration your group needs. \"Perfect location!\" Ditch the car and walk everywhere! Dogs Yay! has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts is normally accessible on booking pages. If they are not listed, email the property management company before reserving the property. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • Some rentals allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the property management company about allowable pet guidelines before booking.
  • If there's a particular Wilmington, NC beach you are enamored with, browse properties that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Remember to confirm all required amenities are available before booking

Additional considerations:

  • Get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental.
  • Hosts are available to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Lock your rental home while you're away. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • To ensure that damages are not attributed to your stay, inspect the property for any problem areas upon your arrival. Speak to the rental manager right away to report any pre-existing damages. If there is a dispute, having the recorded issues and contact attempts will be valuable.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay more pleasurable. You will magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often a great resource to find the best local beaches and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, take a walk through the property to reconfirm you've collected all belongings. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the rental a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We advise inspecting the property with the property manager whenever possible. If the host is not available, remember to take photos of the rental to record its condition.
  • Remember to leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent feedback to stimulate future bookings. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationers will be thankful you shared your experience find their best rental home. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
