Wilmington townhome description

This property is perfectly located on Front Street a few short blocks from the Historic District's restaurants and Shops! We own and manage two of these townhomes plus 2 units in the center of it all.

If we are booked in the townhome or for an alternative place to stay, please visit our unique center of town 1br Loft at VRBO #377007 for a touch of something different in the middle of it all!


AS AN FYI: ALL TAXES AND CLEANING FEES ARE INCLUDED IN CURRENT PRICING!

DESCRIPTION: Enjoy being walking distance to everything downtown offers but just a couple blocks away keeping the evenings quiet. It is the perfect location for downtown fun with a healthy splash of relaxation!

Fantastic townhome right on Front St. in the heart of the Historic District. The home is 2 stories with 2 bedrooms upstairs (each with a queen size bed and a private bath). There is another 1/2 bath downstairs. Big big plus...we have PARKING. Stroll 2 blocks past the mansions for dining, a drink, shopping or a stroll down the Cape Fear River Boardwalk.

Very well appointed Italianate townhome with flat screen, great furniture, 400 threadcount sheets and duvets, washer/dryer, the proverbial porch with swing (Bridge and River View), etc.

YOU SIMPLY COULD NOT ASK FOR A BETTER LOCATION.

Over the years, the unit was used by the Film Studio when films were in town, by business travelers, and by my wife and myself as a weekend getaway. A few years ago we decided it was time that downtown Wilmington had a vacation rental and we became the first short term rental in the Historic District.

All linens, towels, incidentals, coffeemaker and my wife says I should mention the hair dryer....everything is there

                                    My family stayed at this charming home for a week while we moved our son into UNCW and we acquainted ourselves with Wilmington. The home was perfect for us...a beautiful short walk past lovingly restored historic homes takes you downtown to many great dining, entertainment and recreational options! Pam has thought of everything to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable, from the excellent fresh ground coffee (which we SO appreciated as we arrived late at night and didn't want to stop at the grocery store for our morning fix!), to beach chairs and towels, and an excellent selection of DVDs for our viewing pleasure. There is also a notebook chock full of local recommendations and comments by not only Pam, but also the guests who have stayed in the home previously, and should you have any questions or concerns prior to -- or during -- your stay, Pam is incredibly accessible, responsive and helpful.

                                    My husband and I stayed in this wonderful town home for a weekend. Wilmington is a beautiful place. We rented a boat for a day and explored the creeks and beaches, stopping off at restaurants - I will never forget the beautiful scenery and stunning little coves to stop off and have a picnic. There are an abundance of great restaurants and pubs and the beauty of Dave and Pam's home is that it is just a short stroll from the boardwalk. Dave and Pam are incredibly helpful and friendly people and assisted our every need with efficiency and ease. The town home itself is spacious, quirky, clean, thoughtfully decorated and has a great little deck out the front for evening drinks. All in all we had an unforgettable weekend here and would highly recommend coming for a holiday! :)

                                    My wife and I stayed here in 2012. I wanted to find a special place in Wilmington as I was proposing to her during our trip. Let me tell you that we were not disappointed. The home was spacious with two bedrooms, in-house laundry, a large eat-in kitchen, living and dining room and wonderful front porch for sitting. It also cam with an off-street parking spot which was clutch. Beautifully kept and within steps of downtown and the waterfront you really couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The only thing I regret is that it took me this long to write a review!

                                    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house. Perfect location to walk downtown, where parking is paid most of the time. We appreciated the use of the beach chairs when we went to an outdoor concert. The house feels new and is well maintained. It was great to have an air conditioned place to hang out as a family! Thank you!

                                    This was my first trip to Wilmington and I found this townhome to be in a super location, only a 10-minute walk to the city center restaurants and entertainment. I did not need a car. The owners were great and the town home had everything we needed. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed seeing the horse-drawn carriages that would go by the townhome while we were sitting on the front porch! I will definitely be back and stay at this lovely townhome!

                                    I stayed here with my mom and a couple of friends...We went for Riverfest. The owners are very easy to work with and have great communication. This house even has off street parking (which is hard to find downtown). My favorite thing about Wilmington is the Bridge over the cape fear...I could see this by looking out the door. That alone made the trip for me...The house is very well maintained and decorated beautifully..The walk to get to the riverfront is not to far..maybe 10 minutes or so, depending on speed...I like to stroll...I would love to come back and stay here again..This had all the charms of home!! Highly recommended!

                                    Our one-month visit to Wilmington landed us in a “home-away-from-home” townhome and we were the first guests. All of the creature comforts were included from the coffee maker to the hairdryer and the ipod friendly night table clock, just to name a few. The location was ideal for 10-minute walks to the city center to enjoy restaurants, music and shopping. We also remarked as we sat on the porch swing, about the charming sound of the horse drawn carriage and the clip-clop of the hooves on the pavement. Now that’s a sound you don’t hear everyday. You will hear traffic from the bridge but, it is really only noticeable during peak commute time, a small sacrifice for such a great location. We would certainly stay again!

                                    This is a charming, well-kept house with a very convenient location. The owners, Pam and Dave, are very friendly and welcoming. The house is well-equipped with all you will need, and the beds are quite comfortable. It worked perfectly for the 2 adults, 1 child, and 2 medium-large dogs in our party. We hope to visit again soon!

                                    Recommended for: Pet owners, romantic getaway, families with young children.

                                    This was our second visit to Wilmington in 3 years. Both trips we stayed here. The house is within a lovely stroll of downtown. We really enjoy staying here and feeling like a local in Wilmington. Short drive to the beach. The beds are comfy and air con is lovely. The bathrooms have been remodeled with some nice shower tile too.

                                  Year Purchased: 2003

                                  About the owner: We moved from California in 2003 where we lived in San Diego and Palm Springs. We wanted a coastal community similar to San Diego and the ability to take an occasional surf. What we found was the perfect spot - 8 months of warm water, great year round weather, and the occasional 'cold' night to keep us honest. Sun, beaches, surf, friendly folks and a great historic downtown...we couldn't ask for more.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
                                  We love the fact that you can walk to restaurants, theater, galleries, shops and the local pubs. We are always happy to offer advice on the town of wilmington and its myriad of businesses.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                                  We enjoy having a cup of coffee while sitting on our front porch swing, saying 'hey' to our neighbors. We wave at the horse carriage as it strolls past our home on its way to work or after a busy day. As an FYI - They rescue all the horses and if you have a chance to support them, well, I am sure they would appreciate it. We are also just a 10-15 minute ride to the beaches (Wrightsville and Carolina Beach).
