This home is named The Sound House by our family who has owned this property for over 45 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 a new Sushi Bar in 2012!!

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!

  • What a wonderful place to stay! The house is huge and gorgeous and the family is so friendly and accommodating.

  • We loved our stay at the Sound House. The setting was beautiful and the house had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay. The host and her friend were very helpful. We would definitely come back.

    December 2013
  • We had the most peaceful and relaxing family vacation at the Sound House! The location and view make the perfect retreat from all the usual hustle and bustle of life and electronics. Nicoa and Mert are the most gracious and attentive hosts with a desire to make each stay a greqt experience. Our favorite things to do were watching the great variety of birds as the tide came in and out, playing board games, reading and using the hammock and kayaks. It seems like miles away from town when you are there, yet just a quick walk down the street gets you to a couple of great places to eat! Couldn't be a better location from our perspective! We give it two thumbs up for anyone who appreciates quiet and beauty.

  • This house does well for the soul. With a view like this you'll not need much else other than a good glass of wine in hand. The sun rises down the run of water and sets behind you. Make sure to make time for watching both. Honestly, this was our first airbnb experience and it didn't disappoint. You can tell this family loves the home...there's a wide array of thoughtful magazine reading, a nice little radio, a well done renovation of the main floor (think West Elm modern), a fun book about the house/area. We loved the idea (and spirit) of the take-a-bottle-leave-a-bottle wine rack. You're a 10 minute drive from the beach, but honestly, with the swings, the porch, the hammock, the dock, the rope swing, and the kayaks, you wouldn't miss the sand. Would totally stay here again! Nicoa was responsive. Check in/out was easy. Thanks for a great weekend!

  • The "Sound House" has an extra ordinary great location at a small Sound with a beautiful view along the water towards the coast line. The "Sound" specific to the house is actually the quietness that we enjoyed on the deck, in the hammock, on the small pear or anywhere else inside or outside the property. It is just so relaxing and invites to read book after book.
    On top, the owners have proven taste and eye for the detail that makes this place stylish and cool on top. Everything is in place like plates, cups, towels, board games, movies, kayaks ... is in place so you can feel comfortable as invited by friends. Enjoy, my wife, kids (9+11) and myself did very much!

  • Nicoa is exactly the person you'd want as a host. Warm, hospitable, and uber-responsive. Our group of 6 enjoyed the house. There was one issue that was taken care of as quickly as I reported it.

    July 2013
  • Can't say enough good things about Whiskey Creek- it's a perfect house for a group, had everything we needed, great kitchen, amazing deck and we loved using the kayaks. I wish we could have stayed even longer!

    July 2013
  • This house was awesome! My friends and I stayed for two nights and had an incredible time. The house is right on the sound and only about 15 minutes from the beach and the Wilmington airport. Great, spacious place for a group of 5-8 people. Would definitely go back in the future! Highly recommend!!!

    May 2013
  • As always, our stay at The Sound House was lovely. Nicoa is a gracious host and the house is so warm and welcoming. I would recommend it with no reservations.

    May 2013
  • By far one of the best vacations we have had. Nicoa and Mert are incredibly gracious hosts. Their home is truly breathtaking and an ideal way to spend time with family & friends.
    Whiskey Creek is beautiful, quiet & picturesque. The house is an ideal set up if traveling with kids. The views from the house and the deck are fantastic. Kayaking & Paddle boarding from their dock is a treat. We also fished and set crab traps. The outdoor fire pit was great and having an oyster roast was a highlight
    If you are looking for a perfect place to get away, especially if you have kids in tow, Whiskey Creek is a sure fire hit. Thanks to Ginny as well for her help & kindness upon arrival.
    I hope to go back! Thank you Nicoa.
