About the Property

Historic Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Reach out to us at 910-297-0145 with any and all questions and we hope our reviews speak for themselves!!!

This property is perfectly located on Front Street a few short blocks from the Historic District's restaurants and Shops! It is private but still just a stones throw away from everything that makes downtown so wonderful.

Perfectly laid out for a small family or 2 couples, this historic district townhome offers 2 upstairs bedrooms with walk in closets and private bathrooms for each bedroom. There is a half bath downstairs as well as a breakfast nook, dining area, well stocked kitchen, wonderful porch and swing. It was the first and is the longest running vacation rental in the historic district.

A few things that make us unique. We love to put modern furnishings in our historic properties. We also always have parking and this home has 2 designated spaces along with a small private fenced in area for grilling or for your fur-babies to roam just a bit. Did I mention the washer and dryer for those looking for longer stays or building a home, travelling medical, corporate, etc.


If you enjoy being walking distance to everything that downtown offers but maintaining a couple blocks buffer thereby keeping the evenings quiet then our Italianite townhome may be the perfect place for you to rest for a little while. It is the perfect location for downtown fun with a healthy splash of relaxation! The QUIET residential neighborhood and great location makes this a return to home year after year.

We wlcome pets with prior approval!

Stroll 2 blocks past the mansions for dining, a drink, shopping or a stroll down the Cape Fear River Boardwalk.

Well appointed

YOU SIMPLY COULD NOT ASK FOR A BETTER LOCATION.

All linens, towels, incidentals, coffeemaker and my wife says I should mention the hair dryer is there, too.

Enjoy your stay

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We moved from California in 2003 where we lived in San Diego and Palm Springs. We wanted a coastal community similar to San Diego and the ability to take an occasional surf. What we found was the perfect spot - 8 months of warm water, great year round weather, and the occasional 'cold' night to keep us honest. Sun, beaches, surf, friendly folks and a great historic downtown...we couldn't ask for more.

Why the Owner Chose Historic District, Wilmington, NC, USA:
We love the fact that you can walk to restaurants, theater, galleries, shops and the local pubs. We are always happy to offer advice on the town of wilmington and its myriad of businesses.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We enjoy having a cup of coffee while sitting on our front porch swing, saying 'hey' to our neighbors. We wave at the horse carriage as it strolls past our home on its way to work or after a busy day. As an FYI - They rescue all the horses and if you have a chance to support them, well, I am sure they would appreciate it. We are also just a 10-15 minute ride to the beaches (Wrightsville and Carolina Beach).
