We come to this sweet little gem every year for our anniversary get-away. Have never been disappointed. Yes, it may be a little dated, however, we have been witness to so many upgrades over the years, so we know the management is always on it's toes to keep up with repairs, etc. Were happy to see the brand new shower...

We just returned from another great weekend at Summer Sands. We love staying here because of the location - we usually never move our car the entire weekend as you can walk to restaurants, shops, and grocery. We also like having the separate living/dining from the bedroom so you are't as cramped. The waterway views are great, especially the sunsets!... More

The check in process was easy & the condo was well appointed, clean & comfortably stocked. Finding pet friendly locations is difficult enough so locating one that was so nice certainly made for a great stay in Wrightsville Beach. The only suggestion I would make would be for the desk staff to be knowledgeable about where to tell guests to... More

Summer Sands has been a convenient , pleasant place to stay in Wrightsville Beach. We have stayed many times with minimal complaints. Our last visit however was a disappointment. When making our reservation we requested a specific room and told the room was available. This room request was also confirmed in an email. Upon arrival we were told our room... More

We are very aware that our long time guests do prefer certain rooms and their locations. We are also disappointed when we can not meet those requests and do our very best to keep those reservations in tact. The off season finds us in unique situations where we have long term guests staying for in excess of thirty days and... More

Summer Sands was a pleasant stay. A functional room with a friendly helpful staff. The location was wonderful a quick walk to the beach, coffee, shop and restaurant. My only problem with our unit was the water pressure in the shower was pretty non-existent.

Thank you for taking your time to let everyone know how Summer Sands is just steps away from everything here in Wrightsville Beach. We also are sorry to hear that you experienced and issue with water pressure in your room. The water department has been doing and continues to do several line flushes to remove sand that gets in the... More

The suites are clean and have a full kitchen, dining room/area and living room. You can walk to the beach, shopping, boutiques, surf shops. There are bikes available at Summer Suites, or if you want to try a two-person trike, you can rent one right up the street. Parking is available and the beach is steps away. You cannot beat... More

This was our first trip to Summer Sands, and we'll definitely stay there again. The staff was very friendly and responsive, allowing us to check in early and check out late, as it's late in the season and they weren't fully booked (very accommodating). The location is fantastic: right across the street from the beach, AND the inter coastal waterway,... More

Thank you Kathy W. for helping us get the word out about our hidden jewel, Summer Sands. We have been very pleased with our dog friendly rentals and feel that now owners and their fur-children can travel together and enjoy the beach. The dog friendly rooms are a few select rooms on the first floor (and they go fast) that... More

Great location, very nice salt water pool, and friendly & knowledgeable employees. However, the room was very dated. Room needed new carpeting and the bathroom needed to be upgraded. Very tired looking place. The room maids left clean towels and emptied the trash cans each day, but that was it - over 5 days they never vacuumed or cleaned the... More

We usually stay at the Blockade Runner Hotel, but it was sold out. Ended up loving the Summer Sands. Had a harbor front room with a beautiful view. Nice and large covered balcony, which was perfect for the rainy days. Really liked have a separate bedroom from the living space. Great kitchenette, and loved the Keurig. This will be our... More

So glad you found us and that we meet or exceeded your expectations. We do feel that our suites offer that little extra room needed for couples or small families. The Keurig coffee machines were added last year and they have been a big success; however we do have guests that prefer to make that pot of coffee every morning... More

Some friends ensconced me in suite 103 for a birthday weekend. We loved the location with the short walk to the beach, great pool which is protected if it is windy, excellent restaurants nearby and a kitchen for our snacks and breakfasts.

Happy belated birthday. We are so pleased that your friends chose to bring you here to Summer Sands for that special weekend. We feel that we are just footsteps away from everything that makes a great beach vacation. The restaurants and shops are within a stones throw from our parking lot and the beach is a short walk as well.... More
