About Kirby Keene

We moved to Wilmington in 2005 from Kernersville NC. We have really grown to love the Wilmington area. It is an awesome place to visit, BUT, better place to live!

Why Kirby Keene chose Wilmington

When we first moved to Wilmington we lived downtown. We absolutely loved the downtown area and what it has to offer. You can enjoy the riverwalk, live music, live shows, great art, dinner cruises and many wonderful restaurants. This property is only 10 - 15 minutes to local beaches.

The property is close dining and shops in downtown Wilmington. We found that the apartment was very quiet at night even during the Azela Festival weekend! A great place to stay.

Perfect Get-A-Way Place

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for a weekender in Wilmington. The unit was easily accessible and had everything we needed. Walking distance to great bars and music. Kirby was particularly gracious and helpful during our stay, and we have already booked the unit again for early 2017!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The studio was perfect for my husband and myself. Kirby left us instructions how how to access the property and followed up to make sure we were able to get in. Quite seamless! The best thing about the propery was it's access to River Walk (literally right across the street). Very lovely!

Convenient and quaint downtown studio

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the unit while visiting Wilmington for Ironman NC. PERFECT location! We were able to walk to many restaurants and breweries (I highly recommend New Anthem for their IPA). Also convenient to Wrightsville Beach, where the swim leg of the race was held. The unit is one block away from the run course, which was great!

The unit was clean and well stocked, and the bed was quite comfortable. We heard a bit of street noise the first night but it was not overly loud. Parking was a piece of cake thanks to the parking pass for the lot adjacent to the building.

Will plan to stay here again in the future if Kirby will have us!

Comfortable, clean apartment steps from the river walk and downtown

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at the studio while we were in town for a friends wedding this weekend. The studio was perfect. It is super close to many restaurants and bars, as well as the beautiful river walk! The studio was spotlessly clean when we arrived with linens on the bed, clean towels in the bathroom, and water bottles in the fridge. The hosts even provided a parking pass saving us the hassle of finding parking ( something other out of town wedding guests dos not get from their rentals).

Overall a great experience, I highly recommend the unit and would happily stay there again!
