This modern boutique suite redefines luxury rental on the white sands of Wrightsville Beach. The Insiderinfo.us Corporate Suite offers cutting edge style and European elegance. The perfect condo for travelers, beachcombers or romantics who desire a soothing, refined environment to get away from it all. Philippe Starck inspired fixtures set the tone for this designer condo located at the Wrightsville Beach’s undeveloped north end. Travertine marble flooring and bath, custom cherry cabinetry and luscious black granite counters lend an understated elegance. Surround yourself with luxurious comfort in this elegant sanctuary by the sea. Our unit has been the wedding suite of choice for the staff at Shell Island. They call our suite the 'Travolta Suite', named after a recent guest who selected our unit over all the rest of the units in the building. Opera star Jessye Norman loved our unit as well - but our marble bath is so cool, everyone tends to sing there, at least in the shower.... Our unit is far and away the finest unit at Shell Island. Shell Island has two levels, standard, and premier. Ours is a 'Premier unit on Steroids'. Proof is that our's was the highest grossing unit last year. Why? Because once you stay there, you will want to keep asking for Unit 803 By The Sea! We are high on the 8th floor, and the view is spectacular. More

Owner accepted Offer and asked me to pay in less than 5 days. I did and 1 week after he indicated someone else had booked the same weekend. Interesting enough that I checked the website 4 weeks in a row and nothing showed as booked....More

This was all very unfortunate. As I explained to the guest, we list our unit on other vacation rental sites, and because of a problem with the synchronizing service with another site, I had my first double booking in 5 years of managing our unit....More

Great time in Wrightsville Beach. Pretty place and nice people. The condo was ocean facing and a beautiful view. The property itself is a little run down. Good place for kids.

About the neighbourhood
Wrightsville Beach is a treasure -- miles and miles of white sand beaches on a beautiful, non-commercialized island. Shell Island is the last building on the northern end of the island, adjacent to a bird sanctuary. Beach walkers LOVE Wrightsville Beach. Wilmington is a quick 10 minute drive away, and there one will find lots of attractions, fine restaurants and shopping galore.
