  • What an amazing stay at this 1925 historic Wilmington home!!

    "What a treat to have stayed in this lovely, well cared for, cozy, charming historic yet modern home. It was a sad day to have to say goodbye after an enchanting visit. This home was just perfect for 6 people (4 adults and 2 young children under 3). The home is small but none of us felt as if we were "on top of each other". The backyard, which is a beautiful space and I told my husband I wanted to renew our vows there one day, helped created more breathing space. We were only bummed that the nights were not cooler so we could enjoy the fire pit. The front porch is adorable too and I enjoyed every morning sneaking out before the kids were up to watch the neighborhood come to life and watch the people go by. Once the kids were up we enjoyed a morning stroll up and down the streets admiring the gorgeous historic homes and reading all the plagues. For fun we would walk into town which is only a 15 minute walk (with kids in strollers), we went to Wrightsville Beach 3 times (which is a 20-30 minute drive from the house), and we went to the Children's Museum which was a total hit with my 2 1/2 year old. Two restaurants I would recommend would be 9 Bakery and Lounge in downtown Wilmington and if you want the BEST seafood ever you should take the drive to Fish Bites (6132 Carolina Beach Rd #11, Midas Wilmington, Wilmington, NC 28412)-we ate there twice and had been once the year before. Each time was superb and the service was spot on. In regards to the home and it's offering you WILL NOT find this kind of deal anywhere. Kyle, the owner, is so nice and accommodating. You can tell he takes great pride in wanting to ensure your stay is a good one. Everything from linens to towels and soaps and blowdryers-you feel like you're right at home. The best part was all our bottle water and coffee were supplied for the week AND we enjoyed a delicious bottle of complimentary wine. I can't wait to come back and stay at this house again. Thank you Kyle for everything!!!"

  • Lovely Accomodations!

    "Thank you, Patricia, for sharing your beautiful and immaculate home with us. Being able to stay at The Dame added so much charm to our special weekend. We were in the area for an important family event at Wrightsville beach and it was so nice to be able to come "home" each day to such a relaxing and beautiful environment. Anything you could need you will find at "The Dame" and Patricia has thought through everything and has included so many helpful and thoughtful and charming touches to this historical home. We plan to be back!"

  • Excellent location in downtown Wilmington

    "I can't imagine a better spot for getting to know Wilmington. Heart of downtown/ entertainment district. The unit is small, clean, and nicely furnished (pictures are accurate). Owner is very easy to work with. Included parking is a big plus, but if I didn't have a wedding to attend several miles away, I never would have gone beyond walking distance of the unit. Place is perfect for a couple. If I have reason to return to Wilmington, this unit will be my first choice accommodation."
