"We love this place, our 16th year, but this time had some housekeeping issues. Toilets were dirty, sheets not changed and lower level full of sand. All these were corrected within two hours. Thanks.
New furnishings are great. Need a comfortable chair in master bedroom. "
"Had a great stay. Beautiful view, could listen to the ocean all day from the porch. Pictures on the website don't do it justice, much larger inside and on the porch than I anticipated. Great place to spend time with family and friends. Can't wait to come back!"
"House felt clean. Flooring recently updated, nothing else felt new. Good proximity to beach with better views from master bedroom. Had everything we needed. Good location. **Bed in master bedroom was unusable. Owner is supposed to be in process of fixing the solution. Mattress was so messed up that we couldn't sleep in it. Hence we could enjoy the view as much from the master bedroom and my wife and I ended up having to sleep separate due to number of beds/people. Intracoastal offered $100 refund, which we felt was not sufficient for our rental time, inconvenience, loss of master bedroom w/ view when we paid over $1800 for our stay. Intracoastal was professional and worked toward a quick solution...just not a fair one in our opinion. "
5/2 We're very sorry the renter was not happy with the bed. It is new as of December 2018 and is usable, but might not meet some renters comfort level as renters enjoy different types of beds. We have reported the concerns to the owner. The renter was offered a substantial refund of the rental rate for 1 out of 5 beds being uncomfortable, as well as a discount in the future. We're sorry if they did not find this sufficient. We hope they return for a more enjoyable stay. IRC
"The rental seemed clean and in good shape when we arrived. But then we realized that the icemaker in the refrigerator didn't work. We called Intracoastal. They said they would take care of it. They never did. And they didn't follow up to inform us of the status of problem."
"This was our second stay at the Eakins property. The unit works well for our family of six adults. The location is ideal! "
"In a serious downpour, water ran down the down stairs hall from water coming under a door. This needs to be addressed."
"Have stayed here 15 years. Obviously we love it.."
"Fabulous duplex on the beach - very easy access, wonderful beach. Had a great time with the family and will most definitely come back next year!!"
"Aside from a drip with the garbage disposal, which was replaced within two hours of contacting the office, the house was perfect for our needs. The north side of Wrightsville is perfect in late fall/early winter, with mild temps and stunning sunrises and sunsets. The kitchen was well-equipped, which prompted us to cook in more often. Lots of stairs, but good for our hearts!"
"Our vacation for UNCW Family Weekend was enjoyable. The property was clean, except the furniture is outdated and the coffee pot, ocean front door were dirty. (Husband cleaned both) Since we were ocean front I would recommend a high table for bottom level deck to see over the dunes with enough chairs so everyone can sit & enjoy the view. We are a close family with 2 UNCW ??? and a freshman attending now... so had a Great Time! "
"The location was great. The house was good with many ammenities. The parking was good. I have stayed on Wrightesville Beach many times by either renting or a hotel. The only small problem we had were on the outside deck after the sun went down, there were big black bugs that came out. I did not see them in the house at all. "
"We all enjoyed our week at wrightville and could have stayed much longer! We have recommended wrightville to friends and neighbors who love to stay by the beach."
"Stayed in same condo for 12 years. Kept up to date and comfortable by owner. Great location!! Booked for next year.."
"the apartment was as described on the web site. Plenty of parking. Well stocked.We did note that the upper deck had some loose railings,we called and a gentleman came a fixed it in 2 days. It should be noted in the listing that the upper deck is not suitable for children. The railing is too low and slats too far only negative was the young woman at the registration desk did not seem very interested in her job. Was not very personable "
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced issues with the railings at your rental. We always strive to address our guests concerns during their visit and are glad maintenance was able to work on this concern. We will definitely look at adjusting the listing photos/information. We are also sorry that our customer service did not meet expectations and will be going over your feedback with our team. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall.

"Great place to enjoy the beautiful beach and spend time with family."
"We stayed for two months in the Spring of the year. It was a wonderful experience. The home is in a perfect location to enjoy Wrightsville Beach. "
"Great location on the beach. Comfortable homey and spacious.
A few things should be noted: mixer did not work- beaters two sizes mismatched
Carpet needs cleaning
Washer dryer were nice
Other cars parked opposite of garage and was difficult to back out
Overall it worked well for us"
2/1 Thank you for letting us know about the hand mixer and the carpets! We will have a new hand mixer bought, and the carpets cleaned. Glad this guest enjoyed their stay! CMM
"Property is located next to the pier in Wrightsville Beach. You can't beat the location. And the beach is great!"
"Great location for the rental since on oceanfront and beside the path to the beach. Loved the views from the living area and the master bedroom. However, the property needs lots of upkeep and updating. Stains on mattress pads made us skeptical of cleanliness of entire place! Baths and kitchen generally clean."
We apologize that they had some cleaning concerns! We will make sure those items are replaced, thank you for the feedback!
We have been staying in this beach house for two weeks for the past 10 or more years. Anytime there is something that needs to be fixed, we always get prompt and efficient service. We like the location of the house and the house furnishings and kitchen items. "
"We live in Wilmington but we rented Eakins for the week surrounding my daughter's wedding. It provided extra sleeping accommondations for the bridal party and some out of town guests. The natural light in the living room and master bedroom was great for the makeup and hair stylists. We also had the photographer meet us there, and it was only a short ride to the church in our pink limo. The reception was held three streets away, so getting home was great after a full day. All the young people were able to walk to the bars for the after party. The next day we hosted a party for our relatives and out of town guests, and many of them enjoyed a walk on the beach after dinner. We enjoyed relaxing at the beach the rest of the week. Great location, uncrowded part of the beach. Everything was great, including the covered parking area. The only negative thing might be that for some folks, the stairs might be a bit difficult to navigate. But if stairs are not a problem for you, the views from the decks are fabulous."
"We had a great time staying at this beautiful home! The location and staff were great! There were a few bugs (roaches) but the overall cleanliness of the house was fantastic! "
"The best of three different rentals in North Carolina"
"Home is well appointed right down to big Legos for the little tikes! Great location and comfortable accommodations. "
"Simply great. House was terrific -- spacious, well decorated, clean, close to everything. Wrigtsville Beach is a perfect spot to take time to relax - clean, tranquil, and yet near numerous shops and stores."
"We had a very good time."
"This is a wonderful vacation home. We have stayed here for the last 3 years and have been extremely happy with everything it has to offer. It's very clean , great location , and well maintained. A wonderful place to stay."
"Great for ten years!!"
"There were dirty dishes in the cupboard, windows were dirty, dead cockroach in the bathroom skylight. The bathroom fixtures were corroded. The kitchen was not properly stocked for example there were no hot pads, inadequate cooking utensils and serving/storage containers. The refrigerator was not cleaned and the light didn't work. The fireplace that was advertised was artificial with a projected flame. The furniture was not inviting and looked as though it came from goodwill. The wood end tables surface finish was pealing. The ironing board was so old it took 2 people to open and close it. The slider off the living room barely locks.
This unit is in serious need of updating. It was a huge disappointment for our family. "
4/25 So sorry this guest was so disappointed in their stay. Once they brought these items to our attention we notified the owner who brought out new items for the kitchen. We offered to send out a cleaner but they declined. The unit is accurately reflected in the pictures online. Sorry this guest was disappointed. CMM
"Wonderful views and very convenient location!"
"Great place to vacation . "
"Clean, very good location, could use a few updates. overall a nice stay."
I believe this guest rented last year as well. We'll do our own walk through this off season and make suggestions based on the inventory, comperables and condition. -MKR 8/11/13
"We have stayed in the Eakins cottage each year for at least 12 years. We are always pleased with the cottage. We like the improvements such as wireless access and linens and towels provided. Intracoastal is most helpful and prompt to repair or handle any problems that might turn up. We will continue to rent this cottage every year."
"House was great, needs a little updating. Biggest issue was 10 am checkout. That might keep us from going here again, it is too early to pack up a house, pull linens, clean out refrig, etc. 11 am better but hotels go till noon."
So sorry they were disappointed with the checkout time. During the summer rentals are back to back, so we do need that amount of time to clean, inspect, and perform maintenance. Hope to have them again!
"10 straight good years!"
"I loved everything about the place, mostly the location. I liked that the kitchen appliances were updated but I would have liked that the washer/dryer had been too. It's right on the beach, it's spacious, I will come again!"
Great review from these guests, we do hope they come back. Valid point about the washer/dryer, it could be something to consider after the season ends. We hope you're looking forward to this summer! -Marie Rider 5/14/13
"We had a great Roach family Thanksgiving!!"
"Was really pleased with the entire experience."
"Having grown up vacationing and visiting with my grandfather at the south end of the island I wasn't sure what to expect from the north end. However, our accomodations were surprisingly private and very convenient. The unit was comfortable and attractive, with everything available for cooking and enjoying the outside porches. The 3 bedrooms w/baths allowed for privacy but also entertaining in the upstairs master bedroom. It was wonderful to have the linens included in the rental package. The only concern would be for guests who have difficulty with steps since 2 of the bedrooms are upstairs and there are probably 10 -12 steps from the garage to the 1st level. Overall, a great place for a vacation. "
"The beach was just a few steps away--great for kids. Every bedroom has a bath. It was very clean. The views are great. The kitchen was well-equipped, and the furniture looked new. We had a great time."
"Loved the layout/location.
Can opener works poorly, coffee maker VERY slow
Glad they had a great vacation! We will replace the can opener and coffee maker.
"This is a great place for a family or close group of friends. It is very well taken care of.
"Highly recommend this unit"
"I would absolutely stay there again! Very clean and neat, also had toys and games for my son to play with. A wonderful experience and I would recommend Eakins to anyone!"
"This was our first time staying in this type of lodging. The property was in wonderful condition and provided a beautiful view of the beach. The amenities and toys left by the owners were just right for keeping our grandkids occupied during their "bored" times when the weather was not suitable to go to the beach. They are already talking about a return visit. Thanks for a great stay! We also enjoyed our visit to the Wrightsville Beach museum. Two wonderful "young" ladies gave us a nice tour and offered great suggestions for dining and other sites to visit."
"Our week stay at the Eakins home in Wrightsville Beach was wonderful. The house was the right size for our family and our 6 year old granddaugher cried because she had to leave. All the beds were made up and all the linens we needed were there when we arrived.
We could not have asked for a better rental and overall our family had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend the Eakins home to anyone.
Your staff was very professional and helpful as well.
"We loved the location. The master bedroom was a real treat, with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The decor was a bit shabby and there was no toilet paper when we arrived, but there were ample towels and the beds were comfortable. The rental was spacious and overall we enjoyed our stay."
Glad they enjoyed their stay! We will ensure toilet paper is provided with all rentals.
"The house is in a great location. The view is beautiful. "
"washer and dryer didn't work. Carpet needed cleaning badly. Great location in great area."
Thank you for this feedback! We will make sure the carpets are cleaned and the wash/dryer is looked at.
"Having the 3 baths is always a plus. Nice to be close to the life guards. "
