Great location for visiting Wilmington!
Great location for visiting Wilmington!
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.

A great time!!
A great time!!
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.

We hoped for comfortable quarters in a convenient location in Wilmington for our brief get-away. We got what we wanted and then some. The townhouse is cheerful, equipped with all the conveniences of home and located in the heart of town. We especially enjoyed the beautiful old homes on Front Street in their holiday finery. Certainly worth another visit.

We wanted a place where we could celebrate Thanksgiving dinner while visiting our daughter who has an apartment to small to even change your mind in. This was an excellant choice. It was well maintained and clean. I would recommend it to anyone who isn't just looking for the beach scene.
