About the property

Three bedroom, 2.5 bath comfortable private home

Sixth on the Park is just north of Market Street across from Bicentennial Park - stroll to the Riverwalk! Built in 1996 and fully refurnished in early 2014, enjoy the comfort of recent construction while in the midst of historic homes from the late 1800s and early 1900s. The house has plenty of outdoor living space: a fenced in garden, a screened back porch and a welcoming sitting porch out front for greeting the neighbors out walking their dogs (pets are welcome upon approval). Inside, Sixth on the Park features queen beds in the front and back bedrooms and a bunk bed that sleeps three in the middle bedroom (double bottom, single top).

Extremely close to Thalian Hall and only 6 blocks from the river boardwalk, you can easily walk to everything that makes downtown the place to be: casual to fine dining, hip coffee houses, museums, art galleries, antique shops, the excellent county library, horse drawn carriage rides, Shops of Old Wilmington or the Cotton Exchange, historic tours, Ghosts of Wilmington Tour, haunted pub crawls, Wilmington’s Farmer’s Market (April – December), the Azalea Festival (April), Riverfest (October), the Brooklyn Arts Center, the NC Battleship (take a ferry from Water St.), PPD, Cape Fear Community College, and the new convention center.

Experience the night life and then walk back to the house for the quiet of our comfortable home. If you have a car, there is one private parking spot at the end of the driveway and an abundance of free on-street parking. Wrightsville beach is approximately a 15 minute car ride from the house with Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Ft. Fisher (home to the NC Aquarium) being 30-45 minutes away. The city offers many spots for children: Fit for Fun on 10th Street(ages 6 mo. to 5 yrs.), The Children's Museum located downtown on 2nd and Orange (ages 2 to 10ish), Monkey Joe's, Jungle Rapids, skating rinks, an ice skating house, the list goes on.

Relax and enjoy your stay... Get the best of what Cape Fear has to offer - the cultural attractions of downtown and the not-so-far-away beach!

The Wonderful Wilmington Downtown

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of two grandparents, two adult children, one spouse and one two year old grandchild loved this home. Well appointed, easily accomodating of the six of us, and situated in a wonderfully mixed neighborhood close to everything. We loved the little park and the basketball courts directly across the street, both using these and watching others use them.

This was a perfect family getaway for us West Michigan folk in late winter. The weather was delightful, the local culture compelling, and the home itself a perfect fit for our needs. On top of this the managing agent was straight forward and easy to work with throughout. We shall return!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The location is absolutely ideal in terms of proximity to downtown Wilmington activities. Additionally, it was easy to navigate to other attractions such as Carolina/Kure beach, the aquarium, Airlie Gardens, etc. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking and preparing meals. The pictures and description accurately portray the rental.

Great Stay for Ironman

  • 5 of 5

Came to Wilmington for Ironman 2016. Our stay at 6th on park for the seven days was wonderful. The house was really nice and had everything we needed.

We enjoyed sitting on the porch swing during down time. The neighbors were very friendly and having the basketball court across the street was also a plus for more fun times. We spent a lot of time back and forth to town so the location from the house for walking was ideal. We visited the beaches and Arlie gardens which were not to far a drive. We would highly recommend staying in this home for anyone visiting the area. Working with the property manager was very pleasurable as well.

Son's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at 6th on Park for 10 days. We were in Wilmington for my Son's wedding. Having the house was very convenient as we had some baking to do. It was also a short walk from downtown.

The home is very clean, comfortable and roomy. It has just about everything you'd need including laundry room. Welcome book, maps etc. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends!

Exploring Wilmington

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came to Wilmington to explore it as a potential retirement location and to have a short vacation. Sixth on the Park was an ideal location for us, we had off street parking, the park across the street to walk our dog, (they even had a poop bag disposal, very convenient) and the local people were polite and freinddly. We could walk to downtown, restaurants, bars, the river walk and some of the antique shops and getting to Wrightsville beach and out of town was easy on Martin Luther King Blvd or Market Street. The area is beautiful with many beautiful old trees and buildings and many restored turn of the last century homes. The house was spotless and tastefully new inside with all the necessary appliances, my wife was delighted there was a washing machine and dryer. We will stay there again and recommend it to anyone wanting a convenient location to explore the heart of Wilmington.
