Built by the Temple family in the early 1900s, Carolina Temple Apartments is the oldest business in continuous operation on Wrightsville Beach. Operated by the Wrights, it has been in the same family since 1952. Located facing the sound on the south end of the island, it is set back from the road like a well-kept secret, yet only a few steps from the beach. The inn was once Station 6 along the Wrightsville Beach trolley line. The pride with which the place is run is evident everywhere. The building is a good example of early coastal North Carolina architecture with central hallways, spacious, breezy, wrap-around porches furnished with large rockers and the occasional well-placed hammock. Louvered outer doors to each of the eight apartments gives a Caribbean feel. The apartments are not large but they are beautifully maintained, and are either one- or two-room air-conditioned suites with private baths, ceiling fans and fully equipped kitchenettes. The apartments are perfect for couples or small families. The decor is tropical, with luminous beach colors and Caribbean-style folk art. Rentals are from late March to mid-October. Summer rentals mostly require one week's stay. The inn closes in winter. Extras include a sound-side pier, a beach and a picnic area with grills. A laundry facility is also available. This is an excellent bargain relative to the area.
