Guestbook comments from the owner

Mike I just want to let you that we enjoyed your property oh so much. It was every thing it said it was and more. Every thing that we needed was right there, I mean every thing. My wife was blown away at what a cozy oh so clean setup you offer. In 2011 and 2013 we stayed at the Hilton. This is better right on the river, great views. Thank you, thank u. I don't know just yet....... but if Wilmington is in our plans next year we will be looking you up.

Perfect location and wonderful accommodation for Labor Day Getaway 2017

  • 5 of 5

With extremely short notice, I reserved this unit as a getaway for my wife's birthday

-- owner was very quick in reaching out to me and provided everything needed

Location was outstanding with view of the river, river-walk, bridge, and battleship

-- we were able to easily walk to all of the interesting sites and stores and restaurants

The accommodation had everything we needed and plan to stay there again sometime soon

-- very comfortable, clean, and reasonably well maintained

-- can't beat the price... just be aware that parking anywhere in the area can be a challenge, so strongly suggest leaving car in the pre-paid parking lot (provided by owner) and walking to all of the great local shops & restaurants -- location is superb and feels so safe

Fantastic location...comfortable apartment.

This was another great VRBO experience for us. The location in the Historic District, right on the Riverwalk cannot beat if u like to walk to restaurants, shops, tours, etc. The first night of our visit, we stepped out the door and onto a boat for a beautiful sunset cruise. Amazing view from the balcony. The owner provided excellent communication and his parking instructions were invaluable in getting us to an affordable overnight lot.

Beautiful view, convenient to downtown, lovely stay.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is easy to find, Mike gives explicit instructions for ease and convenience. I had no need to contact them for any reason. The unit has nice amenities. It is honestly the view that is amazing. Morning, noon, and night, you can go outside and see the top of the battleship or the beautiful bridge. You can visit with the folks walking the Riverwalk beneath you.

We walked downtown one evening to Music in front of the Courthouse and enjoyed the charm of downtown life.

You do have to be cognizant of parking but Mike gives very good options in his welcome email. We did not have trouble finding a space but I can see where it could become challenging in the thrall of summer and everyone gravitates downtown. I went the last weekend before school starts and it was still busy.

Thank you, Mike, for letting us spend some quality time with our son before he started his school years!

It's a great little apartment. Perfect location in Wilmington, one the river with a great view and you can walk to the shops and restaurants. Bed was comfortable.its nothing fancy but perfect for a weekend. The kitchen is basic, would be great if they would put a few more necessities in there like a frying pan, dish towels, scissors.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I apologize for the missing scissors and dish towel. There was a pair of scissors in the unit but one of the guests must have taken them. We will get a new pair asap. The cleaners did confirm yesterday that the frying pan is in the kitchen. Sorry you did not see it. Sincerely Mike P
