Enjoy the ocean view from the spacious porches of this cozy vacation home. This upper level unit is just a short walk to the ocean, Johnnie Mercer's Pier, and all of your favorite shops.

The master bedroom is at the back of the house next to the kitchen with a king bed. The two other bedrooms are at the front of the house by the porch. The kids bedroom has a twin trundle bed, and the second guest bedroom has a king bed. There is a full bathroom in the hallway for these two bedrooms.
The open living and dining area has room for your entire group. There is a large flat screen TV and sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for family dinners! The porch is great for enjoying a morning coffee, or the evening ocean breeze. A truly memorable vacation!!

"I was leery about no current reviews on this site. However, we LOVED our stay and will stay here again! The long term renters below were awesome and helpful. The beds were comfortable and cool in the evening. Kitchen was outfitted with all your needs. The only recommendation for this property owner would be to supply a hair dryer in the bathrooms. Thankfully, I have a lot of family here in Wilmington, I just borrowed one of theirs.
I hope you enjoy this hidden gem as much as we have. Until again Wrightsville Beach xoxo"
"We stayed at the Spears upper level. We found the place very clean, no signs of pests, It’s within walking distance to the beach and the pier. The beds were comfortable. The porch was big with lots of chairs to sit and watch the rain or enjoy the ocean breeze. The whole place was decorated cute and was very welcoming. We didn’t want to leave and look forward to returning."
Thank You for staying with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
"We have rented this unit 3 times previously, but sadly this last experience was not what we had hoped for. There are 3 important areas that need to be addressed: the mattresses are very old and not comfortable (or sanitary feeling), the couch that pulls into a bed is far too shabby, has a unfortunate incline and could not be used to put small children on (we had to buy air mattresses for the kids), and finally the porch furniture is worn out and 2 chairs and the table were not good quality. Previously, the porch is one of the best parts but not when the furniture is so tattered/budget. We have always liked that this property has easy beach access and the neighborhood is mostly quiet. We had 1 incident with loud music from the renter below after 10pm on Saturday. Most disappointing was that it appears that there hasn't been reinvestment by the owners in basic furnishings. The kitchen was adequate but missing things like a salad bowl, serving tray, sharp knives, etc. It seemed a hodge-podge but we mostly eat out. Closets had like 3 hangers and very little was left for toiletries such as soap at the bathroom sinks. There was some mildew on the ceiling in the queen bedroom that was concerning for health reasons. There were odd things left in small piles like paint cans and laundry basket with extra kitchen cushions and table lamp that don't have a real home. Without knowledge of significant updates, we won't consider in the future. "
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry you experienced maintenance issues during your stay. We would have loved to chance to address some of these issues while you were here. We will address your concerns with the owner and hope to welcome you back in the future for a more pleasurable stay.

"Great location. Walking distance to beach and pier. Very clean and comfortable home. Would rent again and again!"
"The best part about this rental is its location. Wrightsville Beach is wonderful and this rental has beach access at the end of the street and is close to lifeguard stands. Clean bed sheets and towels included, but bed spreads and pillow covers were not very clean upon arrival. Bring your own cooking utensils/casserole dishes/specialized dishes if you plan to cook. Beds not very comfortable, especially the master. We cleaned dust hanging from the ceiling air vents. No outside shower but access to a water hose. Again Wrightsville Beach is a lovely beach."
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are so sorry that you encountered housekeeping concerns at the property. We would have loved the chance to address these issues during your time at the beach to improve your vacation. Your suggestions will be discussed with the owner for updates. We hope to welcome you back in the future for a better experience. Guest Services Manager SNS 8/11
"The bathroom rug had blood on it! When I picked it up to remove it, there was mold under the rug. The house was humid inside that the couch and chairs felt wet. There were no blankets for the pull out sofa bed or the trundle bed.
The guy who lives below the unit blast his music every night at 2:00am
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you encountered some cleaning concerns with the property. We are glad that we could address these issues quickly for you. We are also sorry that the neighbors were disruptive to your vacation. We hope to welcome you back in the future to provide a better experience. Guest Services Manager SNS 9/21
"Would definitely rent here again. Not Ocean View but very close to beach with easy access. Rental is far enough away from Bar Noise but close enough to walk if you wanted to go. Property was very clean, kitchen was well stocked and more than enough linens,towels were provided. Very quiet location with good parking (3-4 cars) Loved the deck with rocking chairs. Would definitely recommend Spears Upper Unit."
"The best thing about this unit is that it is mere steps away from the beach. The unit itself is fine. There is a very nice front porch, the kitchen has the basics anyone will need, the wifi is reliable and reaches to the front porch, and the beds were comfortable. This was our second stay at Spears Upper unit. There really is not an ocean view, but you can hear the ocean, which I really enjoyed while sitting on the front porch. We will come back again!"
"Very nice unit except for had 2 issues. The first being giant cockroaches that came out every night while we were relaxing watching TV which freaked out my family. Also, 3 of the nights at 12:30 pm the tenant below played pop/dance music so loud it woke us up and it went on for 2 hours."
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that there were some pest issues with your unit. We wish that you had told us about your concerns during your visit so we could have addressed them immediately to provide you with a better experience. We also apologize for the disturbance from the tenant below and have since contacted them regarding this issue. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and we hope to welcome you next year.

"Winderfull time. However the air conditioning did not work It was a unusually warm season. "
2/1 So sorry they had HVAC issues! We will get that resolved ASAP, hope they enjoyed their stay! CMM
"Hello, Fabulous vacation for 15th year in a row, we are thrilled with the house. An outside shower/shower head on the left side of the stairs would be a big help in rinsing off from the beach before going inside. Two very minor details, no cutting board this year and the can opener didn't work very well (things I would want to know if it were my property). Thanks as always for a terrific vacation, we'll be back next year! Barbara"
8/3- So glad to hear this guest had such a great stay! We would have been happy to replace these items had they been brought to our attention. Looking forward to seeing this guest next year. KMF
"We enjoyed the convenience of the beach access and surrounding stores and restaurants. "
"We rented or I should say my friend went to Wrightsville Beach to look at properties for rent the week of 6/12 to 6/19 2015. It was very close to the beach access walk but you cannot see the ocean. We had the upper floor as this house is split up and down. House was clean and comfortable BUT THE WEEK WAS UNUSUALLY HOT and the air conditioning in the afternoons did not work effectively in order to cool the unit down. TV worked, then didn't work, was fixed - worked a couple of days then stopped working the last day. We were told that Time Warner, the cable provider was having issues either due to maintenance or the excessive heat. Weird kitchen with a shaded opening to a small alcove and stairway to the unit beneath us. Did not like that and the door to the alcove would not lock. The people below us were lovely but long term renters. Therefore the front of this bi level home was a messy with junk and recyclables strewn all over. They have two dogs which I never saw walked so they urinate and defecate all over the yard. It's a veritable mine field. One night the dogs barked until 11:15 until one of them arrived home to feed and take them out. They had been left alone for probably 12 hours. Would I rent Spears Unit at 7 Heron Street again? No! "
6/27/2015- We are so disappointed this guest didn't enjoy their stay! We have addressed the A/C issue with maintenance and the cable issue so neither will be an issue in the future! We also apologize for the issues with the long term renter, if we would have known we could have possibly moved the guest to a different unit. Hopefully this guest will return so we can show them a better experience.
"We were only there 2 nights and the accommodations and location were fine. I would recommend if you have small children do not rent this unit. The tenants in the lower unit were not there the first night of our stay. On the second night we went out returning around 7:30 pm. Every time my 25 lb. 2 year old walked across the floor, the tenants below knocked on the ceiling. My grandson went to bed at 8 pm so they stopped at that point. "
"House was well maintained, clean and was equipped with all essentials. Proximity to the beach was a definite plus. My only suggestions would be to provide a bin for recycling and to provide a grill for outdoor cooking."
"Great place , good location. Only downside was no outdoor shower, and no BBQ. Grill outside. Otherwise it was very clean, updated furniture , etc etc . "
"It was alright but weather didn't cooperate this year.Also, I had a run of bad health that limited ususal fun stuff in Wilm. area"
We're sorry this repeat guest didn't have a fantastic time, but hopefully they will be back during better weather for a better experience! KMF
"Very pleasant , quiet, and convenient location at the beach. The unit was very clean and well equipped with kitchen items, tv's, comfortable sleeping arrangements as well as creatively decorated. Property management provided excellent customer service and were quick to make sure our quality of stay was their top priority. I would stay at this location again and would recommend it to anyone looking to vacation at wrightsville beach."
"Absolutely a great place. Simple and spacious and very comfortable. Nice neighbors and a quick walk to the beach and pier. Any minor problems we had were quickly taken care of by the rental agency. Will definitely use again. "
"Everything was really nice; the house, the location, and the management company. The reason for the lower overall score was the downstairs neighbor (a permanent renter) had family or friends visiting and they had a baby. We have kids so I understand but they asked us on more than one occasion to have our kids be quite because the baby was trying to nap. Again we have kids so I understand but there were 2 dogs in their place that seemed to bark anytime someone walked down the street so it seemed extreme to ask us to be quieter when they were generating plenty of noise themselves. Plus it was just rather rude especially since one of the times was in the middle of the afternoon."
9/3 So glad they enjoyed their stay! Will address the downstairs neighbor with the owner. CMM
"This was our second year renting this unit. We had as much fun this year as last. Everything was just as clean and nice as it was last year. We already put down a deposit for next year for this same unit. Great experience once again! "
"Convenient, great location to beach and area, clean, well kept--
parking is a bit narrow. Could use some additional baking dishes and sharp knives! Would definitely stay again..."
8/1 We are always thrilled to hear people had a great vacation! We will make sure to check on the baking dishes and knives during our yearly inventory. We look forward to having them again. CMM
"We were very pleased with this charming beach cottage. The interior was updated and clean and beyond that furnished with care and good taste. All we had to do was bring in food and enjoy! Proximity to the beach was great considering we have a 2 and 4 year old going back and forth to the beach. Neighborhood was rather quiet so porch rocking was quiet and relaxing. Plan to return!"
"Comfortable and convenient stay for family birthday weekend"
"This is a beautiful house, nicely furnished, clean, and just seconds from the beach. My only complaint is that I was traveling with my children and there was only a VCR and no DVD player. Who carries VCR cassettes anymore??? The kids brought movies to watch and were unable to do so. Otherwise, great spot. I would certainly come here again. "
"Our week stay was great. My husband and I were joined by our daughter, son in law and grandsons, one and three years old. The website photos really do show the home exactly as we found it, except for the exterior is now painted green. Very clean, with minimal amount of "stuff" to tempt our very busy babies. Kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of room to entertain our Wilmington relatives. Beds were very comfortable. Rockers on the porch were awesome and the beach and walking loop are just steps away. First floor long term renters were very friendly and helpful. On our daily loop walk, we visited the fire department where the boys were allowed to explore the trucks and fire house. Wonderful hospitality and great fun for the boys. Rental company was helpful and key exchange was easy. I would definitely return. "
"When it's cold and windy during winter in PA, I go to my "Happy Place" which is Wrightsville Beach in July. We have stayed in the same wonderful house for 13 years and enjoy its convenience, cleanliness and the beach where ocean temps which are always in the 80's and the life guards are laid back and don't tweet you to death. If there's a better beach than Wrightsville I haven't found it, it's always worth the 9 hour drive."
"This unit was immaculate! The pictures don't do it justice. We enjoyed every minute we spent here and we are already planning to rent this unit again for vacation next year! "
"The condo we were staying at was under construction during our entire stay. In the beginning it was only 1 painter who was working mostly on the back and side of the duplex, and we were fine with that. As the week progressed though more and more workers were on site. By Thursday there were about 6 guys on our front porch painting banisters and doors, which needed to be opened to do so. We had 3 young boys who enjoyed playing on the porch and the last thing we needed was wet paint! What upsets me the most is that on Friday after we checked out, a gentleman from Intracoastal came by to see the condition and said that he was going to have his supervisor call me and I still have not received a call. The whole situation was very poorly handled and we will not be using or recommending Intracoastal Realty in the future. The other nuisance we dealt with all week was poor air conditioning. A heating and air man came out to look at it our first day there and said everything looked fine but the unit got up to 80 degrees every night even with us being extra diligent about keeping the doors and blinds closed all day.
So sorry this guest was not pleased with their stay! Guest reported AC issue upon check in, we sent out a tech from CBS Mechanical and there was nothing wrong with the AC. Guest did not report construction the entire week she was here until the day before check out, at which point we sent out maintenance tech over to tell them to leave. When he got onto the property, there was no sign of construction workers or any work being done. We checked with the owner of the property and she said they were not supposed to be there, but apparently the person who lives in the downstairs unit gave permission (and they did not have authority to do so). -MKR 7/1/13
"Great place - we had a wonderful time - would rent again, thanks"
"The house is in a great location. However, it is described as "ocean view" but is not. Since we only wanted a place in easy walking distance of the beach, that was OK. The wifi worked great and the note on the bulletin board left by a previous guest was very helpful; I have never before put spaces in a password. The beds were comfortable. There were clean linens and towels that were fine. The washer and dryer worked fine. However, there were a number of small things that were annoying. There was not enough toilet paper left for a week; there were small items found behind furniture that were missed by cleaning previously; general operational maintenance was a problem with small things (we had to replace a lightbulb, a lampshade was missing in one bedroom, a bedroom lamp did not work, the pull cord on one of the ceiling fans did not work, one of the shower heads was problematic, there was no dishwasher detergent, etc.). Given the cost of the unit, I did not expect these small problematic housekeeping details. Overall: nothing special. I recommend either improving these little details or lowering the price."
So sorry to hear this guest did have some issues! They did notify us of their problems when they checked out, and they will be taken care of. Wish they had let us know during their stay, we would have fixed them then. (Kathryn Lewis, Miantenance Coordinator10/19/2012)
"Our stay at the Spears Upper unit was the perfect family vacation. A rock's throw to the beach and super clean and comfortable lodgings for lounging."
"This is our 3rd time renting w Intracostal an 2nd time staying at SPears. We were so pls w the new cleaning serv an linens. We enjoyed every min of our stay an look forward to doing it again next year. Great improvement on new service. Thank you."
"In renting the Spears(upper unit) for two years, the location of this property is great. Just a hop, skip,& jump to the beach, Johnny's Pier, King Neptune, etc, and provides quiet evenings. Spears upper level accommodations as a facility are nice, however there are some maintenance issues and the kitchen appliances and cookware are less desirable, and we choose to bring our own cooking utensils. "
Happy to have this repeat guest again! Look forward to having them next year, and we will be sure the maintenance issues are fixed.
"We loved the house. It was very clean! It could use a new paint job soon! My only complaint was the hose outside needs to be replaced."
"Quite a bit of dog hair on the wood floors and furniture, Glad I wasn't allergic. House is very cheerful and nicely decorated. Great location."
Sorry to hear about the hair, we will address this with the cleaners! Hope to have them again soon.
"Great vacation. Only issue was someone was parked in the driveway upon arrival. We had to get the neighbor to move their car. Otherwise perfect!"
"Overall the property was great. The only thing wrong was the lack of pans. Only had one frying pan. Made cooking a little difficult."
"Awesome place and awesome location. Very cute decorations."
"Spears upper level is in a great location, a step away from the pristine Wrightsville Beach, and in walking distance to the eateries of the beach. The accommodations were good containing most of the amenities needed to make a great stay. The linens provided
were a great plus. I was disappointed in the appliances and cookware provided - made it difficult to cook meals. I would recommend this property with suggesting persons renting if expecting to cook meals bring along the required cookware."
Glad they enjoyed the vacation! We will make sure the cookware is looked at this off season.
"The locale to the beach was awesome, and the history of the house/family was quite wonderful. Still not sure how the parking was to be, but we managed. Used aluminum foil on the charcoal grill vs using gas. It seemed to belong to the lower tenant's area. Actually did work on the inside, side porch area. Couldn't find the guest book, but would have loved to have completed it. "
"Had I known that a college student was doing a long term rental in the unit below...wouldn't have rented. First night had to tell 2x to turn down music. She finally obliged at 3:30 a.m. Then we were gone for a day and came back to her guests parking in OUR parking area of driveway. They said they thought we were gone - so assumed they could take over our parking area. Unbelievable. Also, she has friends coming and going all hrs of night. If I was owner of house, I'd be upset w/this going on."
So sorry they had issues with the downstairs guests. We unfortunately do not rent the lower unit, or we would have addressed the guests. Hope to have them again for a better stay!
