Ideally located, the McGowan Cottage is a classic beach cottage perfect for your family vacation. With the sound out the front door and the ocean out the backdoor, it truly is the best of both worlds on the South end of Wrightsville Beach.
The expansive wraparound porch provides great views with ample seating to start and end your day. Enjoy spectacular sunsets over the sound from the porch or pier each evening. The pier offers 2 boat slips for boats up to 25', and Masonboro Inlet is 5 minutes by boat. Kids will enjoy the calm, private beach on the sound -- and when you're ready for waves and beautiful blue waters, the ocean is a very short walk via the public beach access. Whether you want to boat, fish, crab, surf, soak up the sun or anything Wrightsville Beach has to offer, the McGowan Cottage is a perfect place to stay. Plus, it's an easy walk to restaurants and shopping.
Upon entering, you walk into a spacious living room with plenty of seating. A large flat screen TV, DVD player with a variety of movies and a stereo system compliment the room. Adjacent to the living room is the bright, beachy kitchen which is well stocked with cookware, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher and much more. The picnic style dining table easily seats big families/groups. Down the hall are the 4 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a flat screen TV. Across the hall is the blue bedroom with a full bed. These bedrooms share the blue bathroom. At the back of the house are two bedrooms each with two twin beds. These bedrooms share the green bathroom.
The McGowan Cottage can be accessed by both Waynick Blvd. (front) and S. Lumina Ave. (back). Covered and off-street parking can accommodate many vehicles. Under the cottage, you'll find an outdoor shower, foot rinse stations, BBQ grill, fish cleaning station and plenty of cool shade.

"Mornings with Books, Coffee & Breakfast and then Snacks, Sunsets & Cocktails overlooking the intracoastal are a highlight. Little bit of a walk to the beach but well worth it. Cold water outdoor shower is good for the guy but not so much for the girls. Overall, nice size rooms and kitchen. Very comfortable. Only recommendation would be some cheap floor lamps from Target in the living room for night time. "

"The cottage was well located overlooking our own pier on the intracoastal (beautiful sunsets and a great place to swim and we even saw dolphins!) and close to beach access on the other side. It was also the only affordable place we found with the sleeping capacity we needed (we were two families vacationing together, so two bedrooms for the couples plus two bedrooms with two twin beds each for the kids was perfect - so many places that said they slept 8 included some sleeping on pullouts in the living-room which we didn't want). That said, this cottage needs some updating and decluttering. There was so much "stuff" (measuring cups, random appliances, etc) in the kitchen cupboards that there was no place to put our groceries, the cabinet under the TV where one might expect to find board games was a mess, and so many collages on the walls of family photos that you really felt like you were staying in someone else's house, and kind of intruding a little. My family owns a beach rental in another part of the country and we make an effort to keep the personal photos in storage while the renters are there. Also, a basket full of someone else's hats (to wear?) was just weird. But of course none of this prevented us from enjoying our week."

"So relaxing!!! Had everything we needed and more. Gorgeous sunsets!"
"We so enjoyed the McGowan Cottage and hope to return again soon! The private beach and pier on the sound are great for swimming, fishing and boating. Incredible sunset view from the porch. Ideal family friendly cottage and plenty of parking. "
"The location was great for us. The pier easily accommodated our boat. We enjoyed boating, fishing, paddleboarding, wakeboarding and excellent surf in the ocean.
The house was charming and very comfortable. We will definitely come back! "
