Downtown Wilmington Riverfront Condo

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Conveniently Located - Walk to Restaurants & Shops

Whether you are looking for a quiet getaway or the lively action of Wilmington's downtown scene, you will find our condominium to be the ideal location.

Conveniently located in downtown Wilmington within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the River Walk, yet in a quiet residential building.

We are located on the Cape Fear River and have fabulous water views from our balcony, a great place to sit with your morning coffee or watch the evening sunset.

The condo is furnished with a queen sized bed, fully appointed kitchen, full sized washer and dryer, flat screen TV and DVD player. Linens are provided.

This is our home away from home and we think it is the ideal spot from which to enjoy historic Wilmington. There are loads of great restaurants all within walking distance. Boat tours, carriage tour, walking tours, and historic home tours are all just steps away.

There is a free trolly that stops right across the street that will take you from one end of downtown to the other.

The River Walk is right across the street. Catch a boat tour, take a stroll or sit and have dinner at one of the riverfront restaurants

Downtown Wilmington also offers live theatre as well as live music.

If you want to spend the day at the beach, we are about a 20 minute drive away.

If you happen to be flying in, we are only about 5 miles from Wilmington International Airport.

This is a residential building and, as such, we ask that you do be respectful of our neighbors.

No Smoking. No Pets. All renters must be over 25 years of age.

About Bonnie Chappell

The owners main home is in Chicago, Il with Wilmington, NC being their second home and ideal getaway location. We first visited Wilmington in the winter of 2012 and fell in love with it.

Bonnie Chappell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bonnie Chappell chose Historic District

We visited North Carolina a few times and fell in love with the Wilmington area. There is so much to do and enjoy nearby. We think we have the ideal location for exploring the city and, if you want a little quiet time instead, the beautiful views of the river are inspiring.

What makes this condo unique

We think our great views made this property unique. Close to everything yet quiet too.

Great Location and Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for three nights to attend a friend's wedding; we couldn't have asked for a better place. The condo is very roomy and spacious, and very easy to access. We parked several blocks away to take advantage of free parking, but we did not mind the walk, as the neighborhoods around the condo are absolutely beautiful. The location is awesome, with quick access to all of the shops and restaurants on Front and Water streets, is just across from the beautiful River Walk, and is a few blocks from some of Wilmington's top wedding venues. Despite being close to all of the activity, the condo is far enough removed from the bars that it is very quiet at night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would strongly consider staying here again in the future!

This is a great property to explore and enjoy downtown Wilmington

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the property. We sat out each evening on the balcony and watched the river and the people on the street. It is located in the heart of downtown on the river and convenient to all of the downtown restaurants, shops and charm. This is a very comfortable property and the owner is wonderful to work with . The communications were excellent and the space is more than we could have imagined. You won't go wrong with this rental if you want to be right downtown!

Apartment was clean and nice. The location is ideal. There is a lovely balcony to sit and enjoy coffee in the mornings. The owner was kind, helpful and responsive to messages as well. There is a French cafe directly across from condo, La Catalan. Their food was simply delicious!!!
