  • Truly an Oasis

    "This condo was centrally located so that we could walk to wherever we needed to go. It had all the amenities of home. Sara, the owner, even supplied us with umbrellas, beach chairs and towels. It was very clean and extremely comfortable. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone needing a place to lay their hat while in lovely Wilmington. We had a fantastic time!"

  • Perfection

    "This is the perfect spot to stay if you want to enjoy Wilmington and all it has to offer. Even though it's in the middle of bustling downtown, the noise level in the bed area was minimal, and we had no trouble getting to sleep. My husband and I stayed for a busy summer weekend to attend his sister's wedding. The loft was in a prime location...only a block from the ceremony and reception site. And with the parking pass for the garage, we never had to drive around in circles looking for an expensive place to park. We just walked everywhere! Hunter and his family are very sweet and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back very soon!"
