The Sound House is a private home on a beautiful piece of property surrounded by marsh on the sound. The rope swing, the kayaks, the peaceful view through the limbs of the old water oaks... ahhhhhhhh!

Fantastic water front property with dock/water access, views and direct, on-property access to the intracoastal waterway and Masonboro's barrier islands!

Wrap around deck on two-story, 1600 square foot mid-century modern decorated home with water views! It's all about the VIEW! This home is quietly and privately located on a peaceful cul-de-sac in a one street neighborhood with on-property dock access. Great location for kayaking, paddle boarding ... a peaceful retreat ... for couples or families ... or just you. Read, rest, renew...

~1/2 acre with 350 feet of water-front with historic oaks - one with a famous rope swing!
~ 3 bedrooms/2 baths
~ Rancillo professional espresso machine and grinder
~ LG appliances
~ high-speed wireless internet

This home is named The Sound House by our family who has owned this property for over 48 years. A major renovation opened up the interior in 2008 giving it a wonderful open space environment that truly maximizes the views! This is a very comfortable home located among the trees and is easily within walking distance to a convenience store/gas station (The Scotchman), a neighborhood sports bar (Whiskey Creek Sports Bar and the Keg & Egg next door)!!

The Sound House is only 10-minutes from two major grocery stores and shopping; 20-minutes from historic downtown Wilmington and located 15 minutes from family-friendly Wrightsville Beach and the fun and festive Boardwalk at Carolina Beach! Drive to Fort Fisher or the NC Aquarium or just spend your days enjoying the wildlife of Whiskey Creek from the deck or the hammock in the backyard...

It is our pleasure to share this property with you when we are not using it - why waste such a great place if someone needs a place to stay or get away - we hope it serves your wants and needs while visiting Wilmington. Welcome!

Neighbors are long time residents...all willing to be of service if you were to need assistance. Mr. and Mrs. Currier on the left and Mr. and Mrs. Dusenbury on the right looking toward the street...

House Rules

Welcome to the Sound House~~

This home is used as a second home for our family so not your traditional "beach rental" which means some of our belongings will be there but shouldn't be in your way - please be respectful. You are welcome to make yourself at home and use the upstairs amenities, play the games, read the books, use the kayaks...basic reminders include:

~ Great time to stop smoking since our home is a "No Smoking" home or property or a $500 fee will be assessed.
~ We love animals but at the Sound House we have a No Pets rule - but don't worry you'll enjoy all the sea birds and jumping fish to keep you company.
~We can't share the motorboats, but you can use the kayaks of course.

Please ensure when you arrive and when you leave you read through the SOUND HOUSE book we usually have sitting on the counter for our visitors. It talks about things like - taking out the trash and recycling (pick up is on Fridays); making sure you put things back like you found them...who to call if you have questions, etc.

We hope you enjoy our home and treat it as you would your own with tender love and care - call us at any time with questions or concerns - and most importantly, relax and enjoy the view.....

We love Wilmington and The Sound House so much we sold everything in 2017 and moved here full time! We love the water, love being at the beach and are so grateful to raise our girls here. The Sound House is also a retreat for myself, my girlfriends and for my colleagues for working retreats! Soooooo relaxing, soooooo perfect. It is perfect as a getaway ... with or without family -- whatever YOU need! We are happy to share with you and your family!
