About the Property

2 bdrm & 2 bath house; walk to restaurants & fun; has own tranquil pond & deck!

Inquiries during Low Season for High Season:
Less than a 7 night inquiry will not be considered until 120 days from requested arrival date and less than 4 nights would not take priority until 90 days; 3 night rate is always minimum

RATES ARE MISREPRESENTED BY THIS WEBSITE: All nights are charged sales and use taxes equalling 13%, until 7th night, at which point I include it ($156 or $130 savings). After two weeks, the taxes are no longer incorporated, due to the substantial nightly discounts! If the stay is 90 days or longer, no sales/use or occupancy taxes are required. Please contact me for specific rates and other information 434.535.2540, 8am-9pm and leave a detailed message.

Li'l Blu is conveniently located on a quiet street in the Wilmington Historic District, just blocks from the River Walk and many of Wilmington's fine restaurants; there are more than a dozen great restaurants in the downtown area. It’s an easy stroll to the River Walk where one can browse through the many shops or watch the sunset across the Cape Fear River. If you prefer the beach, you have a choice of three beach areas:  Wrightsville, Carolina and Kure. Each can be reached by a short drive of around twenty minutes with easy access and parking.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Refundable Damage Deposit $300
  • Tax Rate 13%



VRBO does not calculate taxes correctly for this rental; I include taxes WITHIN rate when staying 7 nights; that is $185.00/night for High week and less than $143.00/night for Other weeks, except some Holidays.

TOTAL ALWAYS INCLUDES ALL utilities, wireless internet, cable, linens and cleaning fee!

7% sales/use tax and 6% occupancy tax (13%) are included ONLY in week stay (that's $130.00-$168.35 included in total when staying 7 nights!!). THEREFORE 13% is added to any stay of less than ONE WEEK.

GoodCare/Security Depo.=$300 and is refundable w/no damage, loss, excessive cleaning or breach of contracts!

Partial fee refund = leaving house as found upon arrival (if you pay through my PayPal, personal check or wire)!

50% of Total Required to Hold; Balance (includes security deposit) to Confirm or Due 60 Days Before Arrival.

Ask about: 'Work-Week'; Greater Than 1 Month; Holiday Rates AND REPEAT GUEST DISCOUNT, TOO!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose Historic District, Wilmington, NC, USA:
I love being very close to all the activities offered in or near downtown Wilmington without having to share space with anyone; I can also be at the next best place, the beach, within 15 minutes!

The outdoor area is also fully lighted for after dark relaxing.
