Property description

Quick Summary - TAX INCLUDED ON ALL STAYS! Stays of 4 nights or more include tax and 3 hour cleaning. 3 night or less is $90 cleaning cost

Pet possible with prior approval - $125

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 historic 1 brs at vrbo #377007. We also have a collection of eclectic studios at vrbo 634522


AS AN FYI: ALL TAXES AND CLEANING FEES ARE INCLUDED IN CURRENT PRICING on stays of 4 nights or more! Shorter stays have an $90 dollar cleaning split.

We can only book a 2 or 3 night rentals within a week or two of the reservation. We do have other properties that shorter stays seem more conducive. We also regularly refer guests to other Vrbos, local hotels, and B and Bs.

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 townhomes 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

Owner info

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).
