Pick your adventure in this 1-of-a-kind cottage on the Masonboro Island Estuarine Reserve. Get your SUP or kayak ‘on’ and in just a 300m paddle (5 min) you can be lounging on one of the dozens of secluded tiny island beaches surrounding the cottage . Make the 1 mile paddle (~20 min) to experience the unspoilt beauty of Masonboro Island’s pristine, 9 mile white sand beach. Or chill on the dock (shared with owners) and take in the jaw dropping views with a glass of wine.

The space
You will enjoy the solitude of this bright, fresh, cottage which is detached and distant from the main residence and other homes. Backing onto forested acres, and tucked down a private road, you will be able to hear the waves breaking on Masonboro Island while taking in the cacophony of birds and marine life from the two private decks.

The studio style space has been comprehensively updated with a new kitchen and bathroom as well as interior furnishings. The loft nook provides a queen bed for a couple kids or an extra adult/couple. And linens? You don’t need to bring linens!🤷🏻‍♂️ We provide a luxury experience from bamboo sheets, to bath and beach towels.

The wall-to-wall glass front of the cottage affords views of the Intercoastal Waterway (ILM) and opens onto a large outdoor deck with a barbecue grill and shaded dining. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine in the evening, or a shrimp off the barbie. Mature trees provide shade for the chaise lounge as well as a private spot for sunbathing.

The kitchen is fully stocked to make a quick snack or a gourmet feast. The big farmhouse sink with high end fixtures makes cleanup easy. There is a separate, refrigerated filtered water dispenser. And BAM!!!! 20+ fresh spices in addition to SaltnPeppa. Why not catch a couple dozen clams at the dock beach and just whip up some linguinis with clam sauce, Sauce Boss?

On the ground floor of the cottage is a shaded screened porch with new furnishings. Always shaded and surrounded by a garden, this is a cool spot to have a drink, clear some emails or join a zoom meeting without disturbing your travel companions.

Wilmington, North Carolina, United States

The cottage is off a quiet single paved lane with single family homes, and then down a short private gravel road. Quiet. Secluded. Acres of dense forest on the front and Masonboro Sound in your back yard. No street traffic.
