About the property

Zen Bungalow

Come enjoy your vacation at a new level of elegance. This 2,800 square foot, 1926 Classic Craftsman Bungalow is picture perfect in every way, down to the white picket fence that first welcomes you. An artist’s retreat and a designer’s dream, this home is adorned with a soothing color scheme, original hardwood floors, 10 foot ceilings, sprawling rooms and interesting folk-art. Located in the historic Carolina Heights neighborhood, our home is less than 1 mile to the heart of historic downtown Wilmington, 7 miles to Wrightsville Beach and within a short distance to everything that Wilmington has to offer.

Upon entering the home, walk through the sun-soaked foyer to begin your tour of this unique bungalow which features a spacious living area, over-sized windows and a cohesive layout of rooms. A state of the art bright and open cook’s kitchen with high, embossed tin ceilings is stocked with every utensil needed for a holiday meal or a pool party barbeque.

The kitchen opens into a butler’s pantry and breakfast nook at one end and a custom sun porch at the other with access to the patio and pool. This home is also equipped with a formal dining room walled with built-ins, a music studio/den (complete with piano), a giant sleeping porch, 2 gas log working fireplaces and much, much, more. There are 5 fully furnished bedrooms, which include a Master bedroom on each floor (one with a private entrance to the patio overlooking the backyard pool area). Two and a half bathrooms, including one with a steam shower, complete this hidden treasure.

Our backyard has a privacy fence for your comfort, so wake up in the morning and enjoy a refreshing swim, or just open the doors that lead to the patio and let the sunlight, fresh air and Zen-like feel fill your day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family loved the place! It was very spacious and well laid out. The pool was a wonderful bonus which was well used. The kitchen was delightful, and the ability to wash clothes before we left made our arrival home less stressful. The price per person for all of my family staying there was equivalent to a nice motel for a couple of nights. We got to stay there a whole week, and had so much more room!

Nice house but much work still needed to be a strong rental player in Wilmington

Musty and old furniture and uncomfortable beds caused several family members to move to a hotel. I chose the property because of the pool but found it was not heated and needed a severe cleaning.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback on our Wilmington property. We appreciate any and all feedback on our vacation rentals. This is an older home, built in 1920. It has been updated but still retains the original plaster walls and hardwood floors. We haven't had a complaint before on the quality of the beds or the musty odor but we are certainly looking into it and addressing it. The sofa in the living room is warn and we have just purchased a slipcover to improve on it's look and make it easier to clean. We are also getting rid of the wool, oriental rug in the living room as that has also become worn over the years. Hopefully this will help. The pool is not heated you are correct and I believe that we spoke regarding the cleanliness of the pool when you first arrived. There were leaves in the pool due to one of the larger tropical storms we had this past fall. You assured me that you would not be swimming and it was not a problem. I did though in fact contact the pool cleaner and they came the following day and cleaned the pool. Please consider coming to stay with us again for a discounted rate and we will try to improve your experience. Thanks again for the feedback.
