Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This rental is in the heart of downtown Historic Wilmington with lots of sites to see close by. This was our first trip to Wilmington and we enjoyed our time there. The rental was exactly as pictured and described. The river walk was great and peaceful. We had a real adventure walking around town looking at the historical buildings and homes, visiting filming landmarks from many films like Safe Haven, One Tree Hill, and Iron Man III, and embarked on a guided boat tour with Wilmington Water Tours. Everyone needs to visit the Cotton Exchange with all of the artifacts and quaint shops nestled inside. Our adventures lead us to Fort Fisher where we toured the fort, visited the aquarium, and went to Fort Fisher’s beach. We traveled to Southport, spotted dolphins in the bay, and toured the old jail and visitor center before riding the ferry back to Fort Fisher. The Battleship tour was great and a short drive. Steve was very hospitable and made us feel welcome! He provided information about movie locations and information that helped with ideas of places to visit. The apartment had everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. It was a short drive to multiple beaches in the area which made it great. This rental was exactly what we needed! Thank You Steve

Rented Steves place after reading ALL of the reviews. Gotta say one of my BEST stays in Wilmington and a first through VRBO. Space was perfect from my perspective. RELAXED atmosphere. Close enough to downtown and just far enough away...we pretty much walked everywhere which gave us chance to enjoy downtown. Space was well appointed and provided most all the things often forgotten. Extra linens cleaning supplies iron etc. Steve...personal note of thanks for casual relaxed interaction / experience. We WILL be back!!!!!

Staycation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay while renovating our home, so we found this place and lived in the city for a month.

We really enjoyed being within walking distance of everything downtown had to offer, and our puppy enjoyed strolling down the Riverwalk twice a day.

Nothing fancy, but everything we needed. Kitchen was stocked with real cooking supplies, not just a random pot and a skillet, wifi and Roku worked great, and laundry machines were very convenient.

We will definitely come back when we decide to be tourists in our own town again.

Perfect Downtown Location

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking to be down town you couldn't pick a better spot. It is about 2 blocks from the action. Only 15 minutes to the beach. Steve the owner is very accommodating.

It is a great place! We walked to the Cape Fear every morning and great restaurants every night. The apartment had everything we needed. It is a "lived in" place (which we loved) and Steven keeps it affordable. If you want 5 star plush accomodations, keep looking. If you want great location, very comfortable beds, great TV and sound system and a laid back owner, this is your place.

Nice place, great location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here. We booked this place last minute before the Azalea Festival. We had four people, a dog, a baby, and my longboard...there was plenty of room. It was nice that everyone could spread out a little while still having a common area to enjoy together. The location was great. Five mins walking distance from everything. Steve was really great to work with. He was punctual and carried through with everything he said. He also stayed true to the price listed online even though it was last minute. Will definitely be working with Steve again in the future. Thanks for a great weekend!
