Property description

Momentum loft is located on the second floor (over Momentum Surf and Skate Boutique) in the busy intersection of Front and Market Street. We are in the middle of the action downtown. Tons of shopping, dining, drinks, bars, live music, and museums within 4 block radius.
Our unit is all inclusive. It comes with a parking pass in the covered parking deck across the street. No taxes, cleaning fees, or linen fees are added. I take care of those on my end.
This section of Front Street is full of retail and restaurants with an Irish Pub next door. Our guests can expect the usual city noise. There are no CLUBS on this section of the block that plays loud BASS until 2pm. The Pub next door does play tolerable music at a tolerable level until 2pm. The bedroom is in the back of the unity and surrounded by thick brick walls. A good night sleep!
The loft comes with 2 foam surfboards. Dont hesitate to come downstairs and ask the owner about private surf lessons.
Have an amazing stay.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Our building is located in the main intersection of Market and Front Street in Historic downtown Wilmington. The section of the block we are located on Front Street is full of retail, restaurants, a brewery, and a pub. There are no clubs on this section of the block that vibrate neighboring condos with lots of BASS from the speakers. We get a lot of guests that are looking to switch from another location. There is outside dining that ends an hour before midnight and Pub next door that plays tolerable music until close at 2pm. No BASS.

Our guests are staying in the heart of downtown and can expect the usual city noise.

On Saturday mornings there is a great city market with local veggies ect...Horse and carriage rides, tours of historic downtown Wilmington, ghost tours, Battleship North Carolina, Diligence Coast Guard Boat and water taxi to battleship park. Movie studio and locations tours.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: A humble surf shop owner.

Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
I opened my Surf and Skate boutique (Momentum) in this building in 2008. The owner of the building also owns several other buildings downtown and took to my wife and I after being good tenants. They had lived in the unit we rent when they first moved to Wilmington. This was the first building he bought and he sold it to my wife and I in 2011 for an amazing deal. We promised to continue to make downtown a better place and not flip the building on the short term. We originally had our surfboard gallery upstairs when we took possession of the building. If you google Momentum Surf Shop Wilmington, there is a pic of the Surfboard gallery as it looked in 2009. We converted it back into an apartment in 2010 and started renting nightly. We have the best repeat guests!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We are in the middle of the hustle and bustle. If you really want to experience downtown Wilmington, be our guest! Open the windows in the Spring and Fall and let the air in!
