Overview

About the property

One bdrm in historic home w/ great porches and beautiful furniture.

Located in the Historic Cummings-Taylor house on a cobblestone downtown street, this cozy 1 bedroom/1 bath condo has original wood floors, beautiful furnishings and fantastic outdoor spaces. Although the condo is small, it is elegantly appointed and has two porches - a covered porch off the living room and an open porch off the bright kitchen.

The home was built in 1889 and has been converted into three units with this property occupying the third (top) floor of the house. There is a full kitchen and nice dining area. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed and a pull out couch so the condo sleeps four. There is also a washer and dryer.

The home is located in historic downtown Wilmington but is far enough from the lively downtown 'scene' to ensure you enjoy being in this great city while still being able to relax. Walk four blocks to catch the FREE downtown trolley that will take you anywhere in the historic area you would like to visit. The trolley runs every 20 minutes. Downtown Wilmington has so much to offer - great shopping, delicious restaurants, lively nightlife, historic homes and buildings, horse drawn carriage tours, and so much more. There are fantastic beaches within a 20 minute drive from the house.

Make this home your home away from home while you explore this great city!

About Michelle

Our family lives in Charleston, SC. We love to travel and enjoy getting away to Wilmington. I grew up in the South and my husband grew up in the Northeast but came south as soon as he could. I graduated from Clemson University and he graduated from Norwich University in Vermont. We have a ten year old daughter and an eleven year old yellow lab.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2006

Why Michelle chose Wilmington

We fell in love with this home as soon as we saw it even though we had told ourselves we would never buy an historic home. For the first few years we owned it the home was rented to mostly students at nearby UNCW but we recently decided to completely renovate the house and once we saw the beautiful results we decided it would be a great homebase for people visiting the area.

What makes this condo unique

This home has so much charm and is in a great location close to everything downtown and an easy drive to some of the best beaches in North Carolina.

Great downtown apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our weekend stay in downtown for a wedding. The house is charming, street parking was easy, walking to downtown restaurants and bars is easy, and the neighborhood is so fun to explore. Really appreciated that linens and basics like soap are included. Apartment was clean and well- maintained. Enjoyed the two porches and the surprise stained glass window in the bedroom closet. Would definitely book here again!

Adorable place close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Parking on the street was never a problem, we found one every time. We walked downtown, about 1.2km/less than a mile, but you can walk down the street & turn onto the riverwalk so it's a nice walk! The apartment was quite spacious! 2 patios, a seperate lounge and huge kitchen! The washing machine came in handy, as did the hairdryer! Michelle was very responsive and assisted us with checking in. It's true the house is historic so creaks especially in the bedroom, but that's part of the charm! We are always aware of our neighbours so treading lightly & keeping the noise down being on the top floor, wasn't a problem. Would stay again as we loved our stay! Thanks so much!

Great apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love Wilmington! We have stayed in similar rentals throughout the city and this is one that we will book again! Michelle was very responsive and easy to communicate with. A previous guest stated that the traffic on 3rd street can be easily heard inside the apartment when all else is quite but I imagined waves crashing on the shore and it all seemed to fade away😉. Thank you for providing a well furnished home for us to enjoy!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Pictures don't do it any justice. It's charm and the lovely details of a historical home made it feel so cozy. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. We definitely plan to return and stay here again.
