  • We have no reviews here yet, but plenty from our other rental website. I will be happy to give you a link so you can read them all. 'We stayed at Ania's place for 2 weeks. This was more than initially planned, but worth every minute. Her apartment was perfect, exceeds expectation. Besides great stay, Ania took the time to show us around and make us feel like locals. This part we appreciated so very much,since we got to feel real Wilmington (which is great!). We are from the Netherlands and are on a trip around the world. Our Wilmington time will stay with us forever and will repeated. Thanks Ania, family and friends!!' 'Ania was such a gracious host. When we arrived, we found Ania had provided local organic coffee for us to make in the morning. So sweet! Everything we could possible need was provided. My favorite memory here was listening to Patsy Cline while getting ready to attend a wedding in Wilmington. The atmosphere was warm, cozy and the space is absolutely beautiful.' ...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have been around this town for a loooong time. My husband Josh was born here and after many years away, which included going to college, meeting me, living for years in Boston- he decided to come back together with me, buy a rambling old house and embark on the wacky journey of parenthood. We are lucky to be here and we especially love our neighborhood, the same in which the apartment is located. I spent last summer renovating and furnishing it and now offer you the chance to use it.

Why the Owner Chose Wilmington, NC, USA:
The Carolina Place neighborhood is the very best in Wilmington. This is a historic area composed of treasured homes on city blocks with sidewalks - most of the homes are now over 100 years old and lovingly maintained by mixture of old and new residents. We know one another, people walk about, kids are out on bikes. Our apartment is 2 blocks from lovely Wallace Park with Burnt Mill Creek running through it, and 4 blocks from two different coffee shops. We have a neighborhood wine bar with live music on the weekends and another about to open. When you do leave Carolina Place, you will only be minutes from most of Wilmington's many exciting and beautiful destinations. We live nearby and can interact as little or as much as our guests prefer. We know Wilmington well and we can offer suggestions of where to go, shop, eat, park etc. as well as insider tips about local happenings. We are aiming to provide an amazing experience for our guests and want them to feel at home in our sweet little apartment. We are only a text away, but the 2nd story apartment is totally private.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We are situated about 20 blocks from the downtown waterfront, and in less than 10 minutes visitors can be picking up groceries at Whole Foods or Trader Joes, or our local Food Coop Tidal Creek. UNCW, or the Wilmington International Airport are only a few minutes up the road. If you just head down Wrightsville Avenue until it ends, you will wind up at the beach in about 15 minutes. Our public transportation system is not great but parking is easy and once you are downtown (walkable, easily bike-able) you can walk everywhere or use the free shuttle to get around. Cabs from the airport are cheap and easy, or we are also willing to pick you up if our schedule allows.
