                            Each day that we stayed in this home, I would notice another breathtaking gem of the home. It was so beautifully decorated that we kept marveling at different items. The paintings were simply lovely; it was almost like visiting an art gallery without leaving the house. But the home also somehow manages to have a relaxed, open, cozy feel to it. Everything we could possibly need was in the kitchen. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were quite large and spacious; my room's shower was oversized. Having the washer and dryer upstairs was very convenient. The location is perfect. We took a lot of walks - some around the historic neighborhood and some along the Riverwalk. There were plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. Yet we were just off the highway and could quickly get to the mall, grocery store or beach. And last but certainly not least, the owners were kind, efficient, and simply lovely. I'll actually truly miss this home and it will always have a nice soft spot in my heart.

                            Walking into the home felt like a home instead of a vacation rental. Everything that you could need was available and ready to be used. Home was very clean and neat. Greatly appreciate it! I would rent this home again if ever in the area. Also loved how everything in downtown was in a close walking distance.

                            Beautiful, immaculate, comfortable. Owner is so nice. We will stay here every time we come to Wilmington. Why anyone would stay in a hotel over this is beyond me. Here's the layout: two big bedrooms upstairs, each with full bath and HUGE closets, along with 3rd laundry closet. Downstairs is the living room, kitchen and dining nook. Great front porch with swing as well! Off street parking in the back was very nice, with reserved parking spaces. I don't think I've ever stayed in a rental this well kept and clean. It's such a great location, close to everything, and the price was so worth it. Also- everything we needed was there, laundry detergent, coffee filters...etc. We come every year around the same time, and we'll definitely be staying here. Thanks again for a great stay!

                            This property was very clean and well-maintained, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was located in an area of the city that made it easy for sight seeing, shopping, dining out, and the river walk. We had great meals at the Dock Street Oyster bar and Bone Fish. We also enjoyed dining in as this stay was in the midst of a 3-week road trip. We were happy to find a great Whole Foods market not too far away. Would highly recommend this property.

                            Since we have a 2 year old, we prefer renting homes instead of hotels when we travel so we are not stuck in a room during naptime and an early bedtime. This place was perfect for the three of us. It was clean, quaint and a fantastic location. My husband plays the guitar and we were so happy to see one when we walked in the house. It felt like home.

                            My friends and I absoultely loved this townhouse! It was beautiful inside, beds were very comfortable, bathrooms spacious and walk in closets were great! Kitchen was plenty big and enough seating in the livingroom. No complaints about the house at all. We were there for a girls getaway and exactly what we were looking for! It was in a perfect location and just a 5 minute walk to everything downtown. An easy drive to the beach too! A great neighborhood, felt safe to walk home at night from the bar and not hard to find when we arrived! We went on the Hollywood tour and ate at some fantastic restaurants! We cannot wait to be here again next summer!

                            Renting a place based solely on pictures can be dicey. So we were VERY pleasantly surprised when this property turned out to be so wonderfully decorated and clean! Comfortable beds and walk-in closets, great bathrooms, great water pressure and a ample kitchen. The location was wonderful - within walking distance of the river and historic Wilmington. (Even for our 80 year old mother). I would warn people that it is right on the edge of the historic part of the city and it's not so nice looking if you wander too far in the other direction. But never felt dangerous even at night! Great place. We will definately rent here again.

                            This is a delightul home. Very clean. We walked daily downtown past historic homes to the Riverwalk and main commercial areas. Nicely furnished and comfortable. Wished for tv's in the bedrooms and the owners said they would work on this. Very responsive home owners. Wonderful living room, kitchen and two large bedrooms each with its own bathroom and walk in closet. I would absolutely stay there again and recommend it to others. There was dish tv with free movie channels and free wi-fi. Comortable, beautiul leather furniture in the living room. Cute eating area off the very nice and clean kitchen. The owners were fantastic and responsive. If I ever move there I hope to consider them friends.

                          Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
                          We enjoy having it all! Being within walking distance of downtown food, art, entertainment, and history as well as the close proximity to nature in the form of the river, ocean, and parks made this the perfect spot for our second home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                          You have all of the amenities you need and are close to everything. The focus is on comfort and color. The breezy front porch and garden will make you feel at home. Whether you come to sit and rest or to get outside and enjoy all the coast has to offer, this is your perfect base of operations. TV/DVD/CD with 120channels is provided in the family room, but the bedrooms upstairs are all about resting, reading and relaxing. A computer with WIFI is also provided.
