Wilmington condo description

Spacious fully-furnished 1-bedroom loft in the heart of historic downtown Wilmington available for short- or long-term rental. We get a lot of people coming into town for weddings, romantic couples retreats, boys and girls' weekends, vacationers who want to hit the beach by day and chill downtown at night, and families coming to tour UNCW with their teens. It's perfect for all of those things.

A gorgeous urban space surrounded by history; 1200 square feet in a renovated historical building with 22-foot ceilings, exposed beams and girders, new plush carpeting and white brick walls. Two bathrooms (shower and full tub), huge walk-in closet, underground parking, skylight.

The unit is next to Cape Fear Community College, two blocks from the Cape Fear River. Surrounded by Wilmington's finest restaurants and night clubs, Pontiac Place is a five-minute walk to the Brooklyn Arts District, the new downtown convention center, PPD, the Cape Fear River Walk, and the water taxi to the USS North Carolina battleship. It's 4 miles from Wilmington International Airport (ILM) and a short drive to more than a dozen attractions, including world class golf courses and Wrightsville Beach.

Downstairs living space features a twin-size daybed/couch, 37 inch HDTV, Roku box with free Netflix movies and Pandora radio, audio-visual receiver, DVD player, basic cable and WiFi Internet. Fully equipped kitchen includes refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender crock pot, full complement of plates, cutlery, and utensils. Loft bedroom features a King-sized pillowtop bed, a twin-size day bed, full sized dresser, desk, walk-in closet, full bath, and shaded skylight.

Free WiFi Internet, Cable TV. Coin-op laundry in building.

Sleeps four comfortably (five if one of them is a toddler). Perfect for single travelers, couples or young families. Longer term rentals negotiable.

NO SMOKING. NO PETS, NO EXCEPTIONS. SORRY.

Early checkin/late checkout may be available, but PLEASE ASK FIRST. Otherwise we need to stick to the 11 am check out and 4 pm check in limits, so our maid has time to clean the place. Thanks.

* * * We are putting our unit on the market for sale as a turnkey VRBO rental business. If you are interested (or know someone who is) please let us know. * * *

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: My wife and I are freelance writers who chose to move from San Francisco to Wilmington 10+ years ago and have never looked back. We love the beach and the river; the ocean is 85 degrees in summer. If you've never been here before, you're in for a treat.

              Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
              Downtown Wilmington is a very hip, happening place. There are two dozen great restaurants and a dozen live music venues within five blocks (yet our property is extremely quiet). It's got the third largest historical district in the southeast (after Charleston and Savannah) and for our money, the nicest. It's great to be able to go out at night in the summer when Wilmington is hopping and not have to worry about finding a parking spot or driving home. And if you're here for the beach, it's a nice way to get away from the sand and surf at night.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Stroll two blocks to the Riverwalk and enjoy the incredible views of the Cape Fear River. Take a horse-drawn carriage through one of the largest and prettiest historical districts in the country, home to both Revolutionary and Civil War heroes. Take a water taxi across the Cape Fear to tour the USS North Carolina, a decommissioned WWII era battleship. Enjoy free concerts every weekend in summer along the waterfront. Drive out to Wrightsville Beach (25 mins) and enjoy 85 degree water and 10 miles of pristine sand; you can surf, parasail, or jet ski. Take a sail along the Intracoastal waterway or kayak through gorgeous unspoiled marshland. Dive WWII era wrecks and sunken artificial reefs within 45 minutes of shore. There are half a dozen great golf courses and amusement areas within a short drive as well. An easy two block stroll to Wilmington's rockin' nightlife along Front Street and the river. You won't be bored.
