About Jaime or Tim

My husband and I would often take long weekends visiting the beach during the day and go into Historic Downtown Wilmington for the evening. We love the charm Downtown has to offer and all the fantastic places to eat. When we found this unit, we knew it was perfect for us and also decided to rent it out and use it for us and our family.

Jaime or Tim purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jaime or Tim chose Wilmington

We felt this unit was one of the best locations located in Historic Downtown being on the river and having the ability to walk to everything! There is always something going on. I love walking the Farmers Market and it goes on almost year round. We take very good care of our unit and have been very lucky to have had such great renters. We make sure to keep the unit comfortable for people when they rent with us by putting higher end linens, towels and tasteful furnishings. We wanted it to be a place we could enjoy and for others that stay with us too. We love to get feedback on the unit and always hope that everyone enjoys their stay with us!

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location! You step outside your door and you are in the middle of it all: the board walk, cafe's, restaurants, art galleries, local history and relaxation. We love getting up early, grabbing a cup of coffee and walking up and down the boardwalk.

escape from reality!

My husband and I stayed here at the end of April 2017. Its tucked away from the world but just steps away from beautiful downtown Wilmington. We were able to watch the sunsets from just feet away... And absolute must stay!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! Easy to walk to all downtown restaurants and shopping. Secure courtyard, especially nice while there on a mother daughter weekend. Space was clean, well stocked and comfortable decorated. Owners also very helpful communication via email on arrival/departure instructions as well as parking info. Thanks for providing a great option for those of us who love Wilmington!!!!

Perfect stay for 2 in a great location!

This was my 2nd stay in this loft (8 years apart) and loved it both times! Great loft for a young couple or 2 friends wanting to stay in beautiful historic Wilmington, right on the river walk :)

The location is amazing! We loved being walking distance to everything!

  • 4 of 5

This is an adorable and comfortable place. We really enjoyed being right downtown. Just be prepared - the loft ladder is a true ladder - not super easy to get up and down. However, the bed is very comfy once you get up there! The owner was very accommodating when the hurricane kept us away during our scheduled visit - they let us reschedule for a different weekend!

Steps away from Elijah's, The George, Art Galleries, Boutiques and Chandler's Wharf. The unit is a gated complex with many options to park near by. The unit is about 15 minutes from Wrightsville Beach. You also have the option to take a ferry over to Bald Head Island from SouthPort or go deep sea fishing at Carolina Beach.

Did you know that Wilmington is considered the Hollywood of the East! If you have time, make sure to tour Screen Gems Studios. If it's a rainy day, we have the box set of DAWSONS CREEK in the unit along with other DVD's. In Downtown Wilmington there are many things to do, carriage rides, museums, ferry rides, fine dining and plenty of night life. Enjoy your day at the beach, come back and refresh so you can walk throughout Downtown Wilmington.
