We wanted to spend a nice, quiet Christmas at Wrightsville Beach. We chose the Waterway Lodge because it was the closest place to the actual island that would allow us to bring our dog.
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The rooms and condos are all individually owned and decorated according to the owners' taste. The condo we rented was nice and clean, but the glassware could use replacing, and a few cooking utensils need to be added (but I would attribute that to the individual unit we rented, not the entire property).
The Waterway Lodge is a short, easy walk to several restuarants and a few shops. Most able-bodied people can walk to the island proper, and a park/2.45 mile walking loop is nearby for exercise.
The view from our room was of the Intracoastal Waterway, complete with a lighted palm-tree for island holiday enjoyment.
Then only thing I can think would be a negative is that you can hear cars driving over the drawbridge at night (only a problem if you are sleeping in the living room, which is street-side).
I can't comment on the sound-proof quality of the walls, as the winter (holiday) season is amazingly quiet at Wrightsville Beach.
All in all, I would recommend the Waterway Lodge.
