Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Romantic Key West style cottage in historic downtown Wilmington -- two bedrooms each with full size bed, and one HUGE bathroom complete with claw foot tub. Walk to the River, shopping, bars, restaurants, live theater, and all the amenities that downtown has to offer.

The home has a large covered rear porch to enjoy the oriental garden and very private backyard. Although the house was built in the late 1800's, it was redone in this century retaining much of its original charm... high ceilings, hardwood and ceramic floors. The "cooks" kitchen, while minus a dishwasher, is fully equipped including blender, gas range, microwave, 'frig, and custom counter-top made of granite and exotic woods.

Wonderful, cute house with retro decorations. centralized location close to waterfront and beaches. Backyard was very nice and my dog was able to wander around without a leash. Clawfoot bathtub was very relaxing. Owner was very responsive to questions. Highly recommend!

This is a perfect Mediterranean style house on the beach, I cannot ask for more, this is a very relaxing place for a great vacation time, I really enjoyed the house and the beach, I hope I can comeback soon.

I really appreciate the quality and comfort of this unique home in Vero Beah Florida.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage when our daughter was married in Wilmington since we live out of town. We loved it! It was neat and clean and suited our needs perfectly. We had a little problem with the air conditioner but the owner went out of her way to be sure it was resolved quickly. We would definitely stay there again !

Less than presented, safe location

  • 1 of 5

House is adorable in photos but much not as presented. The house was not clean when we arrived nor were there sheets on the beds. The owner did get housekeeping there in short order but we had to finish the washing and the dryer squeaked so loudly that was not an option to finish washing. We were told to put the bed linens on the clothes line on the back porch but it was broken so also not an option. Even after cleaning the floors were so dirty our bare feet quickly turned black when we walked through. Dust level was so high that we were miserable and enjoyed little time in the house. The house needs a thorough cleaning and please clean the return grate/AC unit, it is covered in dust, thus part of being so miserable. Ice maker minimal operation at best but kitchen nicely stocked. Back yard photo is very old as the fence is falling down in parts due to a tree that grew through it, hoses laid all around back yard and had clearly been this way for some time as many were under dirt. Very nice location, NO problem with barking dog as mentioned in another review, and adorable neighbor next door. Would not return or recommend only because the house is not as presented in photos, many things not working or working well, needs a major cleaning.
