Hi. I'm glad to have this opportunity to write. This is the second time we have stayed in the Gray Whale, though I might think again before staying in this home a third time. I would like to suggest the following: getting some decent knives, pans, mixing bowls and kitchen measuring tools for the home. The master shades had mold/mildew on them. All the drapes need to be laundered. They smell of dust. The home really needs all the shades replaced with blinds. The living room carpet needs to be shampooed. We didn't dare put our baby down on it. The wicker chairs in the living space are terribly uncomfortable. Other than that, we love the location, the layout, the deck of the home. Please do some cleaning and updates and get adequate kitchen supplies for the home so we can stay there again. Also, we need to remember that there are NO beach chairs available. We had to buy beach chairs. Also no kitchen basics like oil and spices at this home. Which is disappointing. Leaving a few kitchen basics from previous renters would surely be helpful with a note on the cabinet that they are for renters. I'll check back in the fall when we get our rental for next year (we come every year, as Wilmington is our home). Thanks.
Manager response on 2019-07-03 - Response from Bryant Real Estate
We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your most recent stay as much as previous stays. The owner of this property meticulously stocks the home with the required inventory (even some additional items that are not required), is extremely proactive and attentive to the maintenance needs of the home and strives to ensure each guest has a positive experience at their home- which is the primary reason they have so many repeat guests. We were shocked to hear your concerns and truly which we had we been made aware during your stay; we are positive the owner would have quickly addressed any issues you felt were present. Our hospitality team verified that there are 20 ceramic knives in mint condition, three mixing bowls, and confirmed that the pots and pans are in good condition; they were replaced in March of 2019. The shades you called to attention have already been replaced and the drapes have been laundered to guarantee no further issues are present. Upon further inspection we did not see any issues with the carpeting in the home, however, will have our hospitality team coordinate any further cleaning that may be required. Many times items like spices, tin foil, and even beach chairs may be left behind by previous renters as a courtesy but are not guaranteed to be replenished or available for future renters - our website discloses items our guests should bring and specifically outlines beach chairs, spices, and any favorite kitchen utensils or gadgets. We apologize if this presented any inconvenience or diminished the quality of your stay in anyway, however, these are not standard items that owners are required to provide. While we feel this property is very well maintained and rarely receive complaints about the home, we appreciate your insight and are happy to report that all your concerns have already been addressed. In the future, please do not hesitate to reach out to us during your stay so we can ensure you are able to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Amazing Place!

we have stayed at the gray whale before and we love it. Wrightsville Beach is our favorite beach destination and we prefer to be at the south end of the island. The gray whale is just across the street from Beach Access #39. The house is very comfortable. When our three children were younger they all slept in the third bedroom and my in-laws came with us and stayed in the queen room. This time we just brought the teenagers and my son was happy to have his own room! Everything you need for a great beach trip!

We recently stayed a week in the Gray Whale, lower unit with another family (4 adults and 4 kids). The house was very comfortable for all us to stay the week. The unit was clean and spacious, and perfectly located with a walkway to beach directly across the street. And, being further south from the condos and hotel, our beach area was quiet and private, which was wonderful! The parking, laundry and garbage were all conveniently located, and the large porch was perfect for morning coffee. We will definitely be staying this location for our next visit to Wrightsville Beach!

Laura, Thank you for the positive feedback. We love hearing about the wonderful experiences our guests and their families have when visiting our beaches.

Loved our stay here! Great location convenient to the beach (just a short walk across the street), but yet off them main drag so you don't have to deal with all the traffic and noise. The unit was very comfortable with a home like feel. The guest shower was rather small, its a standup stall type, but overall we were very happy with our stay.
