About Jay Tervo

I publish online city guides, and my wife is a concert pianist. We have traveled quite a bit in lots of countries, and those travels influenced what we were going for when we renovated our unit a couple of years ago. Frankly, we kind of went temporarily insane. We really went for it. We decided if we were going to go to the trouble of renovating our unit, we might as well make it memorable. We hired an amazing interior decorator who came up with a unique and exciting design, and skilled craftsmen to do the work. Floor to ceiling mirrors make our unit seem as huge as our view of the ocean. We combined the two small bathrooms into one large, travertine marble masterpiece of a bath. Sliding glass and pocket doors make our unit memorable in all respects. You will love the 2-way mirror, allowing a view of the ocean from the bathroom. Makes everyone smile.....

Jay Tervo purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jay Tervo chose Shell Island

Wrightsville Beach is a treasure -- miles and miles of white sand beaches on a beautiful, non-commercialized island. Shell Island is the last building on the northern end of the island, adjacent to a bird sanctuary. Beach walkers LOVE Wrightsville Beach. Wilmington is a quick 10 minute drive away, and there one will find lots of attractions, fine restaurants and shopping galore.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit has been the wedding suite of choice for the staff at Shell Island. They call our suite the 'Travolta Suite', named after a recent guest who selected our unit over all the rest of the units in the building. Opera star Jessye Norman loved our unit as well - but the our marble bath is so cool, everyone tends to sing there, at least in the shower....

Our unit is far and away the finest unit at Shell Island. Shell Island has two levels, standard and premier. Ours is a 'Premier unit on Steroids'. Proof is that our's was the highest grossing unit last year. Why? Because once you stay there, you will want to keep asking for Unit 803 By The Sea!

We are high on the 8th floor, and the view is spectacular. Shell Island recently underwent a $10,000,000 renovation, and it looks fabulous, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love Shell Island, but after staying in room 803, I will not stay in any other. I have shared my birthdays, graduation, and remembrance of my Father's death all in this room over the years. I live in Wilmington, but still choose to stay here time and time again. Thank you!
