Sean Dougherty purchased this House in 2006
Why Sean Dougherty chose Riverfront
From the first day I saw this property I knew it was special. It wasn't for sale so I contact the owners and after a little negotiating they sold it to me. I love its location to everything downtown and the beaches. It was built around 1910 but I have tried to retain some of its original charm when I did the renovations.
What makes this House unique
Stay right downtown with locals and really get a feel for Wilmington and its Southern charm.

beautiful and very clean house! walking distance from downtown. My friends and I had a very good impression.
So glad you all enjoyed. Awesome guests please come back anytime!
Nice location by Arts District
The property has an accurate description and photos. Location is good and feels safe around to walk. It is located by the Arts District. Appears as an area in process of been renovated.Location is about 20 mins from Wrightsville Beach and 30 mins from Carolina Beach. House is close but not sure if actually downtown. to main downtown sights is about 15-20 minutes walking, which is not bad. Rather is by the arts district which has restaurants, bakery, coffee shops and bars close by.
Free Parking on street in front of house worked quite well.
The owner is very good communicating back. And always quickly.
Home is very comfortable for 6 people. We appreciated the washer/dryer in property. Actually used the dryer couple of times.
All the basics are well covered:eg clean towels, sheets, etc.
Owner was very accommodating at check-in which very was appreciated. But was very strict at checkout at 11am. I was denied to checkout 11.30am, which will be one of the only cons. Although in fairness I didn’t request this on advance.
Home interior has a nice decor with comfy sofas and a tv with cable tv and multiple DVDs. The backyard is large but simple.
The AC works which is very important. Although is a bit slow to cool down. But home also has several fans which can also be used.
Restroom is only one which can be a bit of an issue for a large group (6 in our case). But it was clean and ok size.
Price was reasonable considering we booked late to stay through the 4th of July.
Home certainly recommended.
The pictures of the inside didn't do it justice! Beautiful home with lots of little amenities that were wonderful. Walking distance to downtown and it was perfect for us! 2 nights in this home was cheaper than 2 nights in a hotel on the riverfront! Very thankful to Sean for sharing his home!
Great location for beaches and nightlife!
Nice little house that is walking distance to river walk, downtown restaurants, and bars. During the day we hit Wrightsville Beach (15 minute drive) and another day, Kure Beach (25 minutes). We had a fantastic trip. Sean thought of everything! From toothpaste to sunscreen and farm fresh eggs to water in the frig. Nicely done! We will be back.
We ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT !!!!!
The Cottage was "PEEFECT" and "ADORABLE" VERY CLEAN, and Cozy ,the bed were sooo comfortable..It had EVERYTHING we needed in the Kitchen. Thank you Sean for the extras in the Kitchen.. We were in walking distance to the river and Pubs and Restraunts.and loved the little shops. We just wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Sean for making our stay PERFECT. Even though it rained the whole weekend . WE LOVED IT !!! WE will definately be back. Thank you,
Wonderful, cozy house. Very clean and cute. We loved our stay. It is ‘within walking distance’ of downtown if you are a hearty walker. We are, but opted to drive and Uber some as well as waking. Great place. We’ll be back!
