We stayed for one night at the Shell Island Resort, NC March 7, 2013. Unfortunately it was unseasonably cold (freezing) and windy.
The views here cannot be beat! The elevator is “glassed in” so that when you ascend to your floor, you are looking out at the intra-coastal waterways. Based upon advice on Trip Advisor, we requested room 910. Amazing views of the sand dunes, beach, and ocean. Breathtaking!
I think that the Premium units have the full size fridges. The bedroom (in our unit) was in the back and was dark. But, I guess it makes sense, because the kitchen and family room are facing the ocean and it is floor to ceiling glass!
The room was dated – furniture, drapes, and so on. However, it was clean.
The staff were very nice, cheery, welcoming and helpful. Parking is covered and free.
There is a restaurant on site, BUT it is very limited operating hours. So….you feel a bit remote. Not anything (eat or drink) in walking distance. We had a pizza delivered from Brooklyn Pizza Co., Wilmington and it was VERY Good.
Both the indoor and outdoor pools looked lovely.
The Beach is huge with tons of shells – wish we had been there in warm weather and dream of being there in August some time.
Loved Wrightsville Beach!!
