My wife and I along with our family have vacationed the past four years in a condo in Wrightsville Beach and had always enjoyed ourselves. It was not big but it suited our needs until last year and we had more than a few rainy days. After being in tight quarters for a few days together we thought we would try something different this year and rent a house instead. What a great decision! We all loved having our own space, the girls loved being able to walk right out of the bedrooms and onto the second level deck to read. I really liked the short walk to get to the beach! We spent pretty much every morning and evening walking along the shore looking for shells and sea glass and came away with quite a bit. The kitchen had everything we needed and was nice and clean. The dishwasher was handy to have! And I really liked being able to take a nice hot shower using the outside one coming straight in from the beach before even going inside. As far as the local places to eat and see went, we really enjoyed the short drive to so many different places to eat on either side of the causeway bridge, none of us had a bad meal our entire stay. And there were plenty of souvenir shops to visit as well. Food Lion was very convenient too. Everyone we ran into seemed so friendly – I felt much more at home in Holden Beach versus Wrightsville Beach. All in all we had a great trip and hated leaving Saturday morning. Thanks to Beth and Bill for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home!
