About Danielle Downing

I'm a nearly life-long local. I live in Wilmington, and am a mother of three and grandmother of seven. I spend my time volunteering for my grand-children's activities and church services.

Danielle Downing purchased this house in 1986

Why Danielle Downing chose Southern Coast

My husband and I purchased this house before Wrightsville Beach was such an incredible vacation area. We raised three children here. I moved away from the property in the early 90's to my current home in a less populated area. It has been a rental property for several years. Last year I had the property fully renovated and spent the year picking out the most perfect decorations and furnishings to accommodate weekly rentals. I use the property, along with my family, as a home away from home and we invite you to do the same.

What makes this house unique

I have hand-picked every item in this house. I truly want you to be comfortable when you stay. My favorite spot on the property is the front porch which is about 20 feet from a fenced in park where I watch my grandchildren play. The location of the house is perfect, being just off of the strip, one block away from the beach, one block away from the sound, and one block away from the pier. Absolutely perfect.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the Flip Flop Hut. It was clean and in a convenient location. The beach was a very short walk just across the street and shops/restaurants were within a 10 minute walk. Loved that they had a nicely stocked kitchen and plenty of games and movies for the kiddos. My only suggestion would be to get some better outdoor seating and a table for the deck. We would definitely recommend this house!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second year staying at the Flip Flop Hut and just like last year, it was great! The house is always very clean upon our arrival and well taken care of. The street itself is very quiet and everyone around is so friendly. I'd say we'll be back again next year.

Great customer service for this spaceous home

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious , bright and cheery . We loved the décor .

We found the spiral stair case to the bottom floor very challenging so we used the

outside entrance to safely travel back to the upstairs .

The rooms downstairs were spacious as well but the closets had no pole to hang our

garments . Both bathrooms are upstairs .. one in the master bedroom and the other very

accessible on the first floor .

Any questions I had and addressed to Mrs Downing were responded to very quickly .

Overall all was great and I would definitely rent this home again .

Great Place...Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This property was exactly as stated in the description and the pictures. The spiral stairs to the basement are a bit tight. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It was a very short walk to the beach and an easy drive to downtown Wilmington. There are some fantastic restaurants in the area as well. We had a great vacation and a great place to stay. I would definitely stay again!

Car: recommended

This house is located blocks from nearly anything you would like to do. Johnnie Mercers Pier is definitely the best pier fishing around. If you venture off of the island and into Wilmington, I would most certainly suggest making the drive down to Fort Fisher to the North Carolina Aquarium. It's about a 30 minute drive but is well worth it. Mayfaire Cinema 16 is about 10 minutes from the house located in the Mayfaire shopping center. This center also has a Red Robin so is great for a rainy day. Your closest sushi bar is going to be Tokyo 101, which is also located in Mayfaire. Upon booking, when the contact information is given, feel free to give the owner a call. We are hometown locals and will be able to answer nearly any question you have, and would love to do it!
