"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The unit was spacious, tastefully decorated, had a view of the ocean, and was within walking distance of the beach. It would be ecologically sound if the unit had a recycling container inside or if the property recycling bin was nearby. We left a note to inform someone that the toilet in the master bedroom was leaking at the base. "
"House appeared to be just refurbished and in a good location. There is a lot of construction activity going on in all of the other homes which was a minor nuisance. "
"Our family had a wonderful week at 18 Sea Oats. The home is beautiful, spacious, comfortable and an easy walk to the beach!"
"We had a Friday to Friday rental in Sea Oats which was perfect for avoiding traffic. When we arrived, the AC was not working properly, but maintenence came right away and fixed the issue. Sea Oats is creatively set up to sleep up to 12 people. We had four adults and 5 children for most lf our stay, and the set up was great. Great view, great location and comfortable set up. "
"Disappointed to see black handprints up and down the stair/handrail and on the doors upon our arrival. Not the impression we were expecting. Appliances need to be replaced - dishwasher left a black film on all the dishes every time we used it. Oven was not heating according to temp. We all felt that at $5k for the week, that there should be a few amenities - extra paper towel, garbage bags, etc... there were absolutely no “extras”. You need to check on your cleaning service from time to time because their performance is below average. We had a great week with our kids but will likely look elsewhere on our next trip to WB. "
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are so sorry that you encountered housekeeping and maintenance concerns at the property. We would have loved the chance to address these issues during your time at the beach to improve your vacation. It is stated in our contracts that consumable products (such as toiletries and cleaning supplies) are not included. For your convenience we provide hand soap for every sink, a trash bag for every can, and a roll of toilet paper for every bathroom. We have discussed these items with our housekeeping and maintenance teams for better performance going forward. We hope to welcome you back in the future for a better experience.

"We love this house and the wonderful staff at Intracoastal. We have stayed here for many years."
"Our vacation rental was enjoyed by all seven relative. Accommodations were excellent and the house was the right size for our group. While the weather was not good for the latter part of our week, we enjoyed the beach and area attractions. In the few instances we needed maintenance done on the unit, our service man was prompt, knowledgeable about the unit, and resolved all issues within 24 hours."
"The experience was great except for having to be out at 10 AM on Sunday. The house is beautiful and in great shape."
"we had our family members coming from different countries and this place was absolutely perfect for our time together! the house is nicely decorated, well equipped, the bedrooms are very comfortable and the common space is very cozy. of course, everybody enjoyed the oceanfront balcony and the beach which is literally just steps away. "
"The property was as advertised and we enjoyed it. "
"Overall great stay. Periodic updating of furnishings is important. Sliding glass door off 2nd floor living area almost unworkable, but other that that, all seemed in good shape"
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced a maintenance concern during your visit and would have loved the opportunity to address it for you. We will discuss your furnishing suggestions with the owner. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 8/8
"We spent a terrific Fourth if July week at Sea Oats on Wrightsville Beach. Everything was perfect. After spending glorious days on the beach, we loved coming back to the shaded lower deck to enjoy cocktails while listening to the ocean and seeing the sea oats on the dune and fisherman on the Pier. Our only complaint was that there was not a clear view of the beach from either the upper of lower decks. Accommodations were top notch in this wonderful family house and there was plenty of room for our family to relax and enjoy time together. We picked the house based upon having two King sized bedrooms which did not disappoint. The kids enjoyed having a rec room downstairs to watch movies or play ping pong. Throw in an outside shower and Sea Oats had it all!"
"Check in was easy and quick. The house was clean and furnished nicely. The downstairs room with the pin-pong table was the biggest hit. Kitchen had everything we needed. The fridge did have a fish odor to it, but that didn't affect our stay. Easy beach access. We never were able to figure out the wifi, we could have called and asked but chose not to worry and just enjoy the beach. Would recommend this to all and will rent again on our next visit to Wrightsville. "
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced a couple of issues during your stay. We have since verified the WIFI and made sure the fridge was aired out. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 5/31
"First, Wrightsville Beach is the perfect beach - clean, wide, relatively quiet - and it's close to great restaurants and activities.
This house is noticeably well maintained, clean, tastefully decorated, and not a thing out of place. We fit our extended family on a long half-rainy, half-sunny weekend without feeling crowded. The top floor desk has a great view of the ocean.
The property management team was very accommodating, and even gave us the key a little early. A minor issue with bed linens was resolved immediately. They understand they are in the 'hospitality' business.
Highly recommend this property if you love the beach and want to make your vacation experience extraordinary."
"Wonderful house. Great condition.
I would recommend that the owner provide some extra trash bags and some paper towels for future guests "
"Everything was perfect and Intracoastal was great and more than accommodating! First, Helen booked my property and honored a few special requests that I had to make for my guests. She was very responsive to my emails and got the job done! She was a pleasure on the phone and made sure everything was perfect for my weekend stay. Well, it turns out when I booked my initial Intracoastal property, a visitor wanted an extended stay there and I was forced to get another property. Ian (manager) called me immediately and told me what had happened and apologied profusely. He said that the Sea Oats was available and even threw in some discounts for my trouble. This property was far better than the first and I was estatic because I was going to use this property to house my bridesmaids and family for my wedding. It was perfect!!! Also, Vicki contacted me as soon as my property was ready, which was hours earlier!!!! That worked out perfectly for my guests. I cannot thank the Intracoastal staff enough for their kindness and professionalism."
"Sea Oats was the perfect place for a Christmas family gathering---spacious, beautiful and on the beach! We had a fantastic experience plus perfect weather! "
"Great house, great location,had a wonderful time."
"Wow, this home is beautiful, tastefully decorated, well appointed and a perfect place to gather with friends and family. Right on the water with a path down to the beach. The extensive decks had wonderful views and plenty of seating. We will be back!
"Home needs a bit more care EVEN THOUGH THE FURNITURE IS NICE. Master shower is mildew stained. Smelled like bleach and that was very strong. Entire home smelled unpleasant. We bought air fresheners to try and help that. Never found the trash dumpster. High traffic area walls are scuffed up and need painting. Dead insects in windows behind shutters. Maintenance person came during our week there and was making a lot of noise very early morning on the deck. Should not schedule those visits while renters are there - especially in the morning. Deck furniture very uncomfortable. Sorry! Master bed mattress way to soft. Bedspreads need washing.
Loved the location and views. Property just needs TLC. It was expensive for off season and we expected it to be top drawer. "
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced some maintenance and housekeeping concerns at your rental. We always strive to address our guests concerns during their visit. We have since aired out the unit for refreshing and spoken with our housekeeping team to address your cleanliness concerns. We will also discuss your notes on the mattress and deck furniture with the owner. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 11/03
"We had a great stay and really enjoyed the house! It was very clean and bright when we arrived, very welcoming! Renting at WB for 16 years after owning there for 30, we have seen a number of properties. This was one of the cleanest ones we've had, so please thank your cleaning staff.
We wanted to pass along some feedback to consider:
1. It would be very nice to have a floor mat inside the sliding glass doors near the dining table to wipe off the residual sand (after rinsing our feet and climbing up the stairs), like the one inside the kitchen door.
2. We would love to see hooks inside the bench area of the outdoor shower for hanging up towels and dry clothes.
3. It would have been really great to have a hose so we could hose off the sandy stairs and our beach chairs and toys.
4. The extra spigot in the outdoor shower down near the ground drips no matter how hard we try to close it, so to save $ and H2O, it would be good if that could be adjusted.
The 4 stars on location only had to do with the fact that there is a bit of a walk to get to the beach - but this is something we should have researched better when booking. The path is clean and easy, just a little long for the littlest ones.
All in all, we had a great week and we thank you for providing a nice home for our stay. We particularly enjoyed the mini ice-maker - so useful and fun to use! The ping pong table was a hit with kids and grown-ups alike.
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We have passed on these notes to the owner and new outdoor shower hooks and a new hose are now at Sea Oats per your suggestions! We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 7/11
"Excellent location and proximity to the beach. Home was well equipped - even a Keurig coffee maker (ladies liked the kitchen items especially) and beautifully decorated with nice decks for viewing. Only suggestion is that they include instructions for TV's and a channel listing. Took a while going through the guide on TV to find the station we wanted. Only a small complaint since the overall experience was outstanding."
"Staying at the 18 Sea Oats house was fabulous in every way! The property was properly described and newly decorated beautifully. It handled a crowd easily inside and outside. The house was in like-new condition, very clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. Intracoastal provided excellent customer service from start to finish. I would highly recommend this rental home."
Hello Karen, Thank you for choosing Intracoastal Vacation Rentals, and for taking the time to write a review about Sea Oats. It is our goal to provide a truly exceptional experience, and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Sincerely, Guest Services Manager SNS 5/12
"First time renting with Intracoastal Realty. They were very easy to deal with. The property was great, and we enjoyed ourselves very much. "
"The house was much nicer and larger than we expected. The location and setting was perfect. Easy beach access or viewing from the lower or upper decks. Definitely will be back!"
"The place was very spacious and had a good lay out. It was easy to get to the beach. The appliances were a little outdated - not working properly, and the shower in the master bathroom did not drain properly."
"18 Sea Oats was in a wonderful location overlooking the beach. It felt very private yet close to many attractions. Overall the home was very good. We had 4 adults and two young children. It was very nice to have two large rooms with King size beds for the adults and two separate rooms for the children. On the downside you could see that the furniture was well used as one of the king beds box springs was falling apart. The porches had beautiful views of the ocean but are in need of repair. We found many rusted off bolts on the bottom floor that had fallen down. Also, the AC units were barely functional. Those were really the only negatives. Otherwise it was a great place to stay and we really enjoyed our time."
Thank you for this feedback! The owner is planning some upgrades and adjustments this off season, we will pass this along. Look forward to having this guest again! CMM
"Great time with family. Lots of room and well appointed. Oven needs replaced but everything else was in good working order. Porches are awesome. "
"Everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend. Description was accurate and everything was clean."
"The house was perfect for our group. Lots of space and open kitchen/dinning area with great decks facing the water. Easy access to the beach. Overall we loved the house and wished we could stay longer :)"
"We moved to Wilmington and needed a vacation rental to get us set in. This was the most azazing option as we experienced the beach life before moving in to the town. The house is lovely and well equipped. Great location right on the beach and the dog loved the morning walks along the sand and in the sea."
"We will definitely recommend this property and Re making plans to return ourselves."
"This is our first time staying in this house. The house was roomy for 6 adults and 4 young children. It is nicely decorated and in a great community of Sea Oats. We did have several issues - one of the sheets had a blood stain at the top of the flat sheet and I didn't think that they should have used that sheet. The refrigerator water and ice dispenser did not work and the dishwasher leaked when we ran it. The doors were very hard to open- I know that the salt air does that. We had to call to get the wi-fi working and TBS did not come in on any of the TVs but the one on the first floor and the MLB playoffs were on. It sounds like we were unhappy but we had the most beautiful week of weather in a comfortable home. Just wanted to inform the owners/ realtors of some issues."
10/21 We really appreciate this guests feedback. I'm glad this guest enjoyed their stay and the week! We will address these issues with the linen company and maintenance, we look forward to having them again! CMM
"We had an excellent time during our stay at Sea Oats! It was a perfect home for a large group with several bedrooms and bathrooms as well as an open kitchen/dining area and living room. The view from the porches was awesome with the beach only a short walk away! We hope to return!!!"
"The house was the perfect size and location for my family (3 couples, 2 with children). We were very comfortable in the roomy and very bright space. The view was beautiful especially from the top deck. Being able to have a short walk to the beach made life very easy on all of us. "
"We have stayed here three years. Each year we hope there will be immprovments made but expect the property at least be maintained and clean,we love the location. We won't stay here again unless it's the last property left on Wrightsville. Property was dirty, half the light bulbs are burned-out, refrig and stove filthy, sink leaking (called 2 times..repair man came 2 times..told to leave faucet hanging and keep bowl under sink), sheets too small for beds come off constantly, carpets are dirty, dishes and silverware are rusted and dirty..way to much other to mention. I'm tired of being told "it is the end of the season"..does that mean it should be free because the money I'd save each year I can make a lot of improvements. "
9/17 So sorry to see this guest was disappointed with the unit. Sea Oats is a beautiful unit and the owner cares very much about the unit and their guests. We are always happy to come out and respond to guest concerns and issues. The sink needed a new part that had to be ordered, it came in after the guests departure and was replaced. We will work with the home owner on the other items listed. We appreciate this guests feedback, but are sorry they were so disappointed. CMM
"While our overall vacation was fun and we had a great time at the beach, our entire party was concerned with the cleanliness of the home and general upkeep issues. The kitchen was not well appointed. Most dishes, cutlery, and pots were soiled in the cabinets. The panel under the oven fell off each time we used the oven. A towel rack in the downstairs bathroom was still broken from our stay last summer. A faucet was also broken. The fridge icemaker did not work. The light in the fridge did not work. Linens and towel service was a high point, but would also like clean quilts/coverlets to be provided. Bath rugs were not clean. Showers walls were not as clean as we like. One front door key did not work. Unit smelled musty this year. "
8/2 We are very sorry to hear this guest was so disappointed. We will make sure the issues reported above are resolved, and will replace items in the kitchen. We will discuss cleanliness concerns with the cleaners and linen company. We hope to have them back next year and show them a better experience! CMM
"We had a wonderful time! We wanted to be at a property that was on or right near the beach that could comfortably accomodate our family and our guests during our week in Wilmington, NC. We were celebrating my daughter's graduation from UNCW...adn we had a fabulous time. Great weather, great location and really comfortable house.
"This was by far our favorite rental! First time in Wrightsville Beach - but if the opportunity to go back (we were visiting family who is moving to the west coast) we would re-rent Sea Oats in an instant! The view and closeness to the beach couldn't be beat!"
"We were attending a conference at the Holiday Inn and opted to stay at the house to be able to entertain customers. Everything worked out great. "
"This was a wonderful place. It was very comfortable, easy to get to a nice place on the beach. Stayed here with my two adult children and their spouses and there was a bedroom with bunks left over. "
"The oceanfront location of this roomy and comfortable home on Wrightsville Beach made for a perfect quick weekend getaway. We hope to be back again next summer."
"Great location and basically a nice property but needs some TLC. If you are going to stay make it early in the season. Nothing seems to be done all season. Anticipating next year's vacation we asked if there were any plans to replace some really worn carpet (maybe a cleaning would help), pots and pans, silverware and several days there was a sewer odor we couldn't pin down. Make sure you ask for sheets that fit the beds!"
Glad the guest enjoyed the beach! This is a fantastic unit, and unfortunately at the end of the season units can show they've been through some busy weeks. We will work to make sure all units are in top condition at all times. Thank you for this feedback!
"Disappointed to find that most of the doors were hard to close & lock--did call maintenance about this. "
This was a mix up between the cleaners and check in, the guests the day before left later and the cleaners did not understand that they needed to go back. Has been addressed with housekeeping, we got them out to clean after the guests checked in, but they were able to get it ready quickly. So sorry for any confusion, we hope to have them again!-MKR 8/21/13
"Our family had a great time in this rental. The location was excellent. The only recommendation would be to have the house cleaners scrub the dishes in cupboards before new renters arrive. Also, would add a BBQ grill. That would make the house perfect. "
Glad to see they enjoyed their stay! Grills can now be rented, which we will ensure guests are aware of. Hope to have them again!
"@ issues owner should address.
1. change frig filter every 3 to 4 months..this GE frig requires itr.
2. take roof off the outside shower and let it breath...too dark and a breeding area for mosquistos"
This guest did mention the filter at check out, he owns the same one at home. We appreciate the input, and will discuss it with the owner. Hope to have them again. -MKR 7/15/13
"The cul de sac was quiet in the evenings; the house is well maintained, has easy beach access, is comfortable and fun! We really enjoyed our time there."
"We had 8 adults in our group and we had plenty of room. This was a very nice house right on the beach."
"A wonderful house in a great location. We were there in a cold snap, so the ping pong table saw lots of action."
"We specifically looked at properties early this year and were pleased by the condition and the amenities of the property (especially the equipment in the kitchen). Much to our surprise the house was not clean (mouse droppings in the kitchen and living room, bugs dead on the carpeting),the equipment we viewed in the kitchen was not the same (pots and pans), the main master bedroom shower drain barely works and the bathroom door drags and can barely be shut. While the management company gave us a new inexpensive set of silverware and pots and pans their explanation was that it was the end of the season and the property gets "used". If this is the case we should have been told and there should be an "end of the season...run down rental price". It shouldn't be this difficult to rent a nice property if you are paying a nice rental amount and take care of the property as if it were your own. May revert back to finding properties without management companies! "
So sorry to hear they had a disappointing stay. Units are a bit worn by the end of the season, but that is also why rates are a bit lower. We will ensure that our inspectors do a more thorough time to help guarantee top conditions.
"We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the cottage very much. The location is wonderful and the cottage is well equipped and lovely. "
"We love the location but our third stay was a real disappointment. Many things needed to be fixed including faucet, ice maker, never did have internet, dirty bath mat, dishes put away were dirty, poor dishwasher, missing trash bin. We will likely consider renting this property again but feel that the owners should provide us a partial refund for all our trouble. (we made five separate trips to the rental office) Will say the maintenance dept was responsive and Jim was great. When we left the assistant noted on our file that Tom (?) the manager would call me on Mon but it is Wed and never heard from him."
So sorry they had these issues! We appreciate this guests repeat business, and will ensure these items are fixed ASAP. Look forward to seeing them next year.
"A few minor problems with the cable tv and wireless internet but for the most part A1."
"We loved the property. The location is fantastic, the view is great, the kitchen is beautiful and the furniture is excellent. Very upscale. The only complaint at all is the cable is very limited. There's a great TV in the family room, but there's basically no cable. We couldn't get ESPN or anything above channel 22."
"This was an incredible experience! Ocean front beach home! It was an awesome Christmas vacation away from home! Intracoastal Realty was so kind and helpful through our entire reservations and time there! "
"Pre rental maintenance check would have made this 100% satisfaction. Oven bottom broken, kitchin sink pipe cracked-leaked water- 2 days to get it fixed; drapes need to re hung/fixed. Otherwise a great rental!!!!!"
Glad they enjoyed their trip! We will make sure inspections are more thorough.
"The house was beautiful and everywhere you looked, you saw the ocean. I felt like I was sleeping on the water, with the views from the master bedroom. The home was furnished to provide every sort of comfort. This is a place to visit evey year."
"Fun Fun House Great memories Will definitely book again, The most fantastic shower ever in the double headed shower and views of the ocean at the same time. So roomy and really magnificently decorated."
"We have stayed with you for a week every year for the past 12 years.For the first time this year,the linens and towels were furnished with the property. The beds were all made when we arrived with towels on each bed in a nice package. This is a TREMENDOUS
PLUS!What a treat not to have to worry about bringing our own. Please keep up this amenity. It made the week so much nicer.
"As long as property condition is kept clean and not "shopworn", it is excellent choice."
"Loved the place but would include more large platters in the kitchen. I am sure these properties are rented to large groups. The cooking pans and platters were very limited and in need of updating. We had a large group and did lots of cooking. "
I'm glad they enjoyed the unit! We will discuss new platter with the owners.
"The biggest problem was the ants. We had little ones so we didn't want someone to come and spray. I felt the unit wasn't as clean as it should be. Some of the dishes and pans looked like they had been put up dirty. I think a rental at this price should include a better selection of cookware. We had to make food in shifts because of the pot and pan issue. Overall we loved the location and had a great time. The unit is very nice."
Glad they had a great vacation! We will make sure the unit is sprayed for insects more regularly, and replace the pots and pans this off season.
"This is a gorgeous home. Overall rating--5. The panoramic view of the ocean from the king bed in the master bedroom was beautiful. We would definitely like to book this property again."
