About Hunter Ford
A humble surf shop owner.
Hunter Ford purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Hunter Ford chose Riverfront
I opened my Surf and Skate boutique (Momentum) in this building in 2008. The owner of the building at the time in 2008 also owned several other buildings downtown and took a liking to my wife and I after being good tenants. They had lived in the unit we rent when they first moved to Wilmington. This was the first building he bought and he sold it to my wife and I in 2011 for an amazing deal. We promised to continue to make downtown a better place and not flip the building on the short term. We originally had our surfboard gallery upstairs when we took possession of the building. If you google Momentum Surf Shop Wilmington, there is a pic of the Surfboard gallery as it looked in 2009. We converted it back into an apartment in 2010 and started renting nightly. We have the best repeat guests!!!
What makes this Condo unique
We are in the middle of the hustle and bustle. If you really want to experience downtown Wilmington, be our guest! Open the windows in the Spring and Fall and let the air in!

Best place to stay on Front Street.
Location was perfect! We loved going to the Irish bar each night.
Perfect space for 2 for the weekend.
Hunter was very easy to work with and made sure we knew where things were in the area.
We will definitely come back!!
We are so lucky to get best guests at our location! This guest shared personal information that helped me suggest places for them to check out and it really felt like a family member was staying in our place. They are business owners too and the overall experience was one of the best we have had in 5 years! I'm not going to have the same experience with everyone but I will certainly try!
The loft is centrally located and within walking distance to everything in downtown Wilmington! I loved the convenience of everything, and Hunter is so nice!! The loft had everything needed; however, I would recommend a new mattress. The noise was a little loud on Friday and Saturday nights; however, the A/C did a good job at drowning out most of it. I would stay here again!!
Wonderful location in downtown Wilmington
Just spent a week in this loft. It was the perfect launching point for walks through downtown Wilmington. Less than a block in any direction leads to food, drink, shopping, music venues, or a walk along the Cape Fear River. Owner knows many of the local chefs and restaurants, and is happy to help make reservations or recommend a special place. We really enjoyed our stay and hope it's available the next time we go to Wilmington.
What a great loft for couples who want to be right in the heart of Wilmington. Easy access, awesome owner, good times in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. Would definitely stay again.
Great Rental! Great Location!
My husband and I wanted to take a few days away and we found the perfect location. The owners are easy to work with and very accommodating. The loft is in the center of downtown and walking distance to numerous restaurants and bars. We parked the car in the parking garage (courtesy of Hunter) and didn't move it until we left three days later. Next time we will venture down to the beach and see some other sights but if you are looking for a great place to rest, relax and rejuvenate book this place today!
Our building is located in the main intersection of Market and Front Street in Historic downtown Wilmington. The section of the block we are located on Front Street is full of retail, restaurants, a brewery, and a pub. There are no clubs on this section of the block that vibrate neighboring condos with lots of BASS from the speakers. We get a lot of guests that are looking to switch from another location. There is outside dining that ends an hour before midnight and Pub next door that plays tolerable music until close at 2pm. No BASS. Our guests are staying in the heart of downtown and can expect the usual city noise. On Saturday mornings there is a great city market with local veggies ect...Horse and carriage rides, tours of historic downtown Wilmington, ghost tours, Battleship North Carolina, Diligence Coast Guard Boat and water taxi to battleship park. Movie studio and locations tours.
