About John Hardie

I was born and raised in Asheville,NC and then moved to Wilmington for 11 years. I have now moved back home to Asheville. Wilmington is a great city and I am excited to share my home with others.

John Hardie purchased this house in 2006

Why John Hardie chose North Carolina

Location, location, location! So close to downtown, with I-140 so close it is easy to get anywhere in Wilmington. Or even a quick ride to Surf City or Topsail Island.

Very good!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our family being together in your home. Nice that the beds were made for us and clean towels in the bathrooms. The couches accomodated our single kids too. The key pad worked fine and the pool table was fun. I hope you can get the sliding glass door working again which was off track .

Thank you for sharing your cute home with us, especially for one night. We were able to get to UNCW graduation in plenty of time. May God bless you .

No complaints whatsoever

  • 5 of 5

We had just a few more people than bed space, and the owners were cool with that. They even had an air mattress to make up the difference.They make checking in and leaving very easy, and have plenty of things to do if the weather doesn't cooperate or if you just want to spend time at the house. Thanks.

The house was the perfect size for us and was located well within the area that we needed to travel to venues.

Loved my stay!

  • 5 of 5

I went to UNCW, so I know the Wilmington area very well. While at first you feel like the house is a little out of the way from everything, you quickly realize it's not! Super easy to get to downtown, UNCW area, and the beach. We went to all locations during our New Year's stay, using Uber and the prices were not bad at all! The house is the right amount of space and has a PS2, which we were super excited about. Nothing like playing Guitar Hero 2 and 3 to bring you back to your high school days. Bottom line - it's a great house for those looking to enjoy Wilmington, especially UNCW alumni visiting.

Overall, I found the house very nice.

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was very nice, peaceful and quiet and very comfortable. However, I feel that some of the furniture should be repaired or replaced. And the cleaning team should do a more through job. We found old ice in the freezer as well as old food and misc. and some of the dishes were not as clean as they should have been. Otherwise we completely enjoyed our visit and would recommend it to other travelers and would stay there again. My only real regret was that our trip was too short. And I must thank the owners. They were very helpful rescheduling our trip due to the weather. My daughter and I really enjoyed the pool table as well. It had been a long time since we were able to just relax, shoot pool safely and chill out. Loved it!
