  • What a gem!

    "If you are looking for a perfect quiet spot. In the heart of downtown Wilmington this is the place! The black out blinds in the bedroom MADE our weekend. My husband and I have incredibly busy work schedules and are always on the go. However, we were able to sleep in and enjoy being away from the our phones/email and the city noise. This place made us feel like we were in our own home and not in a hotel on a business trip. We were only there two nights or else we would have gone to the market to pick up coffee and little snacks but, we had so much planned we didn't. The coffee shop literally underneath us to the left was perfect to pick up and bring back to drink on the patio. I would recommend it to anyone. VERY clean and well maintained. The property manager in the area Jeff was great and very helpful just, like the owner Bonnie. You can tell they take great pride with this condo. The photos on the website is exactly what you are getting plus more. The view of the river and the river walk just outside the gate is a great attraction. We wished we stayed longer :) but, we will see you soon!!"

  • Cute, Home-y, Comfortable Little House

    "Me and my best friend just got back from a wedding in Wilmington, and we chose to stay at the Garage. It was so cute, and we loved it!!! It was the perfect size for us, the bed was super comfortable, and the owner even left a bottle of wine for us and a map - she even circled where the wedding location was on the map. It was really thoughtful! It was everything we needed, and very close to the Front Street area where all the shops and restaurants are. We wouldn't hesitate to come back for a second!"
