We had a great time three things came to my attention. The WiFi is not strong enough for everyone to use. It definitely needs a booster or possibly a new router. The board walk to the beach needs some attention this is a safety hazard. Loose boards and raised nails. Also when we arrived the cleaning crew was still there and it was after four. They were not in any hurry to leave. I don’t mind the later entry but we need to be informed because of the congestion on Saturdays. There is no where to park and I don’t want to offend the neighbors on the street.

Manager's Response

Thank you Jessica for the review and informing us on some of the issues you experienced with Oxford's Sand Castle. I have informed our maintenance staff of the loose boards and I will let the owner know of the wifi issues. We hope you will return again soon!

Our east and west coast families met for a week at the beach, so we wanted a large home with separate bedrooms, bathrooms, and direct access to the beach:. the Sand Castle was perfect. House is beautiful, comfortable and the porches have spectacular views.

Manager's Response

Thank you Frances for this terrific review! This property is appropriately named Oxford's Sand Castle, with the beautifully decorated house, spaciousness, beautiful ocean front views and even a private walkway to the beach. We hope your whole east and west coast families will be able to enjoy this spectacular home again in the very near future!

Relaxing weekend in a well-appointed home right on the beach. The sun rises were stunning!

Manager's Response

We are so excited to hear you had a wonderful stay at Oxford's Sand Castle, Bonnie! It's certainly easier to relax when you are surrounded by ocean views and cozy furnishings. The large deck on the main level has plenty of seating for those front row views of Wrightsville's stunning sunrises. The private boardwalk to the beach is also a huge plus. We cannot wait to have you back next time, keep in touch!

Amazing house for the family vaca!

This was our fourth year renting Oxford's Sand Castle. The amenities in this house are the best and one of the best features is each of the 5 bedrooms has it's own bathroom. The private boardwalk to the beach is so convenient. Bryant does a great job keeping us informed of everything we need to know to check in and out and everything in between. Besides just relaxing, highlights during our stay are the farmer's market every Monday, dining at Oceanic,and hitting Jimmy's for a beverage and to see what dogs are visiting on that particular day! This is a vacation we look forward to every year.

Manager's Response

It was so wonderful to host you all again this year, Michele! Thank you for your continued loyalty renting with our local company, we appreciate your business! We are thrilled you love Oxford's Sandcastle as much as we do with the wonderful oceanfront views, updated furnishings, spacious bedrooms, and large deck area to watch the waves! We always like to make sure our guests have all the info they need for a stress free trip but not *too* much so it's great to hear some feedback on that! This is such a wonderful home for a beach rental and we are so happy to continue to host you each year, your group is always welcome!

This was our third year renting this house and I have also booked it for next year. We had a great time it is a wonderful place to stay. There were a few issues the central vacuum system would not work and there was no broom. The dryer worked but it took several cycles to dry clothes. The cooktop didn’t seem to be working took forever to get hot.

Manager's Response

Jessica, thank you very much for your feedback and report of those issues. I have sent them over to our maintenance team to look into on the next turn day and they will correct any issues found. The central vaccuum container may need to be emptied if it wasn't working; we will investigate! There are two brooms in the house in the hall closet on the first floor - however I wouldn't doubt if they walked off between renters or are somewhere else in the house. You won't believe how many brooms go missing week to week! I will make note to double check if there is a broom otherwise, next time let us know ASAP and we can deliver you one to use during your stay. We are so thankful for your continued loyalty with our company and Oxford's Sandcastle! There is so much to love about the unit - it's oceanfront views right by the pier, the large decks with comfy furniture, the cozy large bedrooms with connecting bathrooms in each, and the overall spaciousness of the home. We are looking forward to your return next year!

This was the best vacation home we’ve stayed in on Wrightsville Beach. Perfect location, beautiful view, great design for a family. Will come again!

Manager's Response

Mary Ruth - thank you so much for your review of Oxford's Sandcastle! The owner has tastefully decorated this home and it's quite large and open to allow for bigger family groups to spread out. Having your own private boardwalk to the beach is also a huge plus to avoid beach traffic and crowds. We are so happy you enjoyed this unit during your stay, and appreciate you choosing to rent with our company. Hope to see you back on the beach soon!

I was very shocked at the price and availability of this house for this passed Labor Day weekend. I was also very weary hence not having many reviews but I went with my gut and it completely paid off. This house is truly amazing in terms of location and privacy. The interior of the house was immaculate and everything written in the description matched perfectly. There were plenty of beach essentials such as chairs and umbrellas, grill was clutch, patios and furniture was great, truly near to a perfect trip. The biggest issues during our stay was very minor; close to empty propane tank, and not accommodating early check-in but I know that can be difficult sometimes, that’s all!

Manager's Response

Happy to hear all was just as anticipated, Ronny! Welcome back anytime!

This house is amazing and we love the private beach access. We've stayed here 3 years now and will continue to stay at this house. Amenities were upgraded this year such as a newer coffee pot and espresso machine. Every bedroom has its own bathroom which we love. This house is beautiful and first class all the way!

Second time renting this house. Love the house and the location. Really wish they would fix the water heater issue. What they have now will not accommodate 10 guest. Also would like to see another trash receptacle one sometimes is not enough. A refrigerator in the garage would be a nice addition.

Manager's Response

Hi Jessica- Thanks for visiting a 2nd time! We appreciate the feedback and will look into mentioned suggestions. Hope you'll visit with us again soon!

This was one our favorite homes to rent in Wrightsville Beach and we have been vacationing here for almost 15 years!It was very spacious and luxurious. We loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom and the open concept kitchen, living room and dining room. The ocean view is amazing. The only slight negative is, this area of the beach gets a little crowded but it's great to be able to walk to the downtown area for the restaurants and shops.

We stayed here for spring break this year. The house is located at the end of a quiet street on the beach. It is within walking distance to the little town and great restaurants.

The house is well appointed and has amazing views from every level of the house. Upon arrival, it was very clean, very well maintained and unlike many beach homes, the house was sand free.

There were a few maintenance needs that needed attention so we used the Bryant Realty app and received a call from Roy within 15 minutes. He showed up and solved the issues quickly.

The only downside to the house was the very limited tv options. They have several great tvs but only had the most basic cable package with 7-9 channels (no ESPN, no news channels, no entertainment channels, etc). They have Apple TV with Netflix on 2 tvs which helped a little but news and sports would have been nice and are a reasonable expectation in this type of rental.

Other than that minor issue, the house was fantastic, the rental company was responsive, and the location was amazing. If you are considering the Wrightsville Beach area, you should definitely consider this house. We had a great week.

Property was great. The hot water water was a little problematic in that, sometimes it took a very long time to heat up and other times it stayed lukewarm. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
